Sergey S: Why is this press-release so similar to this one http://www.dpreview.com/news/2011/10/27/leicaS30mmf2p8 ?
Chinese company can't write own press-release?

:-D Unbelievable!

cesko61: Why so many useless ironic comments about chinese approach, and about the use of grammar in the press release, so much ignorance about aperture performance, and so many out-of-topic "I would like it wider" or "I would like it less chinese-cheap"? Why don't you just buy yourself an M9 and change topic?

Yabokkie: Ok. But 12mm/1.6 is equivalent of 24mm/1.6 on full frame, as you say. The TS-E 24mm/3.5 may be high quality but not that spec. It is 48mm equivalent and much darker. I have a 12mm/5.6 (!) Voigtlander on my GF1. Pretty good quality, no comparable aperture, but I am happy that way. Anyway it costs twice or three times the SLR Magic. Chinese o not it's a low value not so high tech product. Why expect more? And, as someone says over here, the pudding makes the taste... the taste makes the pudding... if you first eat the pudding... no... first taste the pudding, and then... Oh, I don't remember. :-)

boswelox: Since when was 24mm "ultra wide angle"? Even a few compacts start at this.

I think they want to remind the "UltraWide" definition of the 12mm/5.6 Voigtlander lens - that I have and mount on my GF1 with excellent results. Of course the max aperture is very different, and maybe this comparison is what they want to put our eye on. :-)

yabokkie: yet another cheap lens? 12/1.6 is equivalent of 24/3.2 on a 35mm body. if you want a high quality lens at that spec, TS-E 24/3.5L2 is the way to go.

You are right. But I mount on my GF1 a Canon FD 50mm/1.8 and a Canon FD 85mm/1.8, and I get very good bokeh. Everything is improvable, of course.
