stopkidding: People often compare cost of m43 lenses with lenses for bigger format and assume smaller should be cheaper. In fact the converse is true. Because of the smaller sensor and denser pixel layout, m43 lenses have to be twice as sharp as full frame equivalents to resolve the same lp/mm at a given magnification.
It's harder to design a m4/3 lens than it is to design a medium format lens.
Stopkidding! It is a proven fact that compact cameras with excellent lenses are cheaper than DSLR + lens!!!!
Kodachrome200: I dont get these crazy expensive m43 lenses. Small formats should not be a premium format. These lenses cost more than FF lenses. thats nuts
Stop saying smaller lens should be more expensive.If it is the case, compact cameras should be pricier than DSLRsI once bought into the m43 system, left very quickly, stupid lens prices, and image quality not that great either
qwertyasdf: What are the DOF markings for? there's no distance scale.
Sigh...people don't read nowadays.

KATA, glad that someone is here.I used to be a huge fan of KATA (own 4 KATA bags now), and recommend the brand to my frds without reserve.However, I have to say that customer service is non-existent, I have an enquiry and sent KATA 3 emails, including the international and USA, but still have no replies after 1 month.Please let me know if there is a customer service e-mail that someone would answer, I greatly appreciate it.Just answer my emails, and I will buy and recommend KATA again.
SHood: They say it will be slower then EOS-M. nough said.
What?! The 18-55 is already faster than the 22mm?! I tried the 18-55 in the store, it was ultra slowDon't even bring in M43, M43 cameras WILL lock focus before the EOS-M start AFing.
I think it's fair to say that the EOS-M focuses slower than a fairly skilled photographer.
Mike Perlman: My next review will just be a Kata waist strap.
Thanks, Kata is more innovative than Canon LOLBTW, why didn't you take any product pictures? I want to see the attachment mechanism of the revolving part.
qwertyasdf: I have from a Canon fan become merely a Canon user.Their old lens and bodies are still superb.But, what's up now?! $850 for a 35mm F/2?!
Have Sigma officially announced the price?!

Most expensive kit lens ever! FTW!!!
doctor digi: The one with the cat is not fake. It's a real cat! Anyone can see that.
And they didn't even give a reason and called it fake, how arrogant!!!Definitely a real cat.
Does the stylus come with a touch screen?
sedentary_male: Well this is just great and reconfirms what I read in Chasseur d'Images (http://www.chassimages.com/forum/index.php/topic,159563.0.html ) I am now convinced to go with a body and an 18-135mm WR lens. This is my first foray into DSLR territory.
Pentax body = yesPentax system = well, you really need to understand your needs / budget / expectations first.
Definitely the best bang for the buck APSC body out thereand probably the best too.(but whether buying into the Pentax system is sensible is a different story)
ChuckTa: I found some pic sample from 45/1.8 and it looks really good. http://www.slrclub.com/bbs/vx2.php?id=newproduct_samsung&page=1&divpage=1&ss=on&select_arrange=headnum&desc=asc&no=3549
