Why no fast wide-angle primes?
Jul 15, 2013

I've been looking into the 1 system to replace the bulky D800 for the travels and the kids.  It's great that they offer a fast 85mm and 50mm equivalent, but with all those zooms aside, I must say the only thing holding me back is the availability of a fast wide-angle prime.  With my D800, my favorite lens is by far the 35mm f/1.4G.  It's wide enough to capture environmental shots without distorting people's faces too much, and offers absolutely gorgeous bokeh.  The 10mm f/2.8 for the 1 system seems like a "we just don't care" lens.

Pity I think, considering that this system is obviously meant for the enthusiast, yet offers more consumer-type zooms than I personally would care to see.
