A complete joy to read, thank you Yamaki san!
viking79: It always amazes me how complicated modern zoom lenses are, and that they work as well as they do. Beautiful.
It amazes me even more how people designed lenses before the invention of computers.
One word: I'm buying this lens.
qwertyasdf: I have said this many times, all mirrorless companies are doing something wrong...why are there no affordable ultra wide angles?!?!!?!
This is except Canon's 11-22mm, and it's also the reason the EOS M is my most used camera.Fuji & Sony's options are too expensive & bulky. Olympus's 9-18 is expensive given it's quality.
Do they even know their target market? Travelers would adore a lightweight ultra wide setup.

I never think that CSCs were "help compact camera users progress toward something more capable and flexible".
It's about removing the mirror box - that bulky, precision mechanical, production cost.
christom: Where are the pictures of the new camera??
Monster lens!!!LOL!!! is it a 14MM or a 14CM!!!Pentax's 15mm is pancake sized....
This DP0 should really be the first DP camera they sellThe DP series is sensational in landscape and miserable in other thingsThe DP1 was never wide enough....
Next, pls make the lens available for other mirrorless cameras.
If it's really aimed at landscape / studio work, why they don't add a swivel screen?
I can even do a selfie, 50 mega pixels of myself!!!
qwertyasdf: In all seriousness, there's just one thing wrong with this camera:
It's a Samsung.
simply because people don't buy Samsung cameras....
I'm not trolling, I was an early adopter of NX cameras. They take great pictures, burst rate is exceptional, the menu system is a million times better than the old Sony NEX menu.I ditched it because of the unnecessarily long flange back distance, making the camera stupidly thick.
In all seriousness, there's just one thing wrong with this camera:
Can you combine the hi-res mode with auto bracketing?
KellydenAdel: Tokina 16 to 28 is superior and HALF the price
I guess, thank you very much for your hands on experience?
Roman Korcek: Erm, what will this Tamron have that the award-winning and one third cheaper Sigma 18-35mm F1.8 does not have? Is it just about the image stabilization? Or those 3mm at the wide end? What am I missing?
Run for your life before the equivalency police catches you .__.
DPR, bet you've missed this, but they changed the logo also.
ealvarez: Is this manual focus lens? $599? I can get 135mm f2L canon for about $600 used and Nikon 180 f2.8D even cheaper used.. I don't share much of the enthusiasm. Maybe I would if I was Sony E-mount shooter.
Seriously....trolling one of the sharpest AF lens, the 135L?!Pick an easier target next time.
If you are seeking for shallow DOF digital photography, FF is THE format. Ain't even trolling
Think about this, for FF we have 85mm f1.2 and 50mm f1.2What do we have for MF?There is the the pentax 67 165mm f2.8 ~ 85/1.4 equiv.And the Mamiya 80mm f1.9 ~ 50/1.2 equiv.
But the issue is such equivalences does not exist in the digital realm. Til now, there isn't even a full frame 645 sensor, let alone a 67 one.
Hey, I heard that Pentax will finally release a FF DSLR next year.....for the 10 past years.
The text and the pictures don't match?
Stunning workshould've submitted to the natgeo contest!!!
