To be very honest, a 50mm lens, no matter the performance, doesn't excite me.
There are more superb 50mm lens out there than there are superb photographers.
I'm more inclined to see some unseen lenses, 20mm F1.4, anyone?
LOCA very apparent in F1.4_12IMG_6056I miss the days when I just started photography, I didn't care about sharpness, don't know what's vignette, CA, let alone LOCA!Now it's the first thing I see!
luxor2: The chart showing "equivalent aperture" is nearly unreadable due to poor color contrast. Almost a poster child for Excel disasters!
Why does the F value goes back down for some cameras???
Gesture: Real photogs don't use UV filters, lens caps, neck straps or wrist straps. They do use lens hoods.
Real protogs dont talk about lens cap:facepalm:
Lonnie Janzen: or... You could just put it in your pocket.
They are targeting the skinny jeans wearers.
The issue is...not about the absolute size of the sensor.it's the fact that it's called a 645, but without a 645 sensor.
It's like naming a 8-cylinder engine Model V12.
A camera rendering us, humans, useless.
Good to see a circular FE for APSC, sensible price also.FE ought to be cheapish, since we only use it thrice per year.
qwertyasdf: Correct me if i'm wrong, the largest aperture used in this set is F3.2?

ISO FOUR MILLION!!! Go Sony!!! :p
Knowing Sony's reputation for salesspeak I actually believed this for a few seconds lol.
"The innovative α7S camera features a newly developed, 12.2 effective megapixel 35mm Exmor® CMOS sensor paired with a powerful BIONZ X image processor, allowing it to shoot at a sensitivity range of ISO 50 – 4096002 with unprecedented dynamic range and low noise."
So ISO of 2 (two) makes the difference between picture and no picture!
Can't wait till ISO 4mil becomes reality. The aperture priority guys always say F8 and forget it. It's time we can say 1/8000 and forget it.
The fun gets old in like 3 secondsand within the 3 seconds, 2 seconds is frustration.
qwertyasdf: Next project: an endoscope

All the waiting, and there's no Hasselblad announcement on April 1st!!!
Niklas Ramstedt: Nicely done. I know how bloody hard it is to get these suckers into focus. Summer after summer I try to capture some when the kids blow bubbles.
I think he took them on the moon or mars.
h2k: They keep shying away from a super wide angle prime.
And, yes, as a Pana shooter (except GX7) i'd rather prefer this one with IS.
Also CaNikon and SOlympus. WHY no UWA prime!Only Pentax has a DA 15mm, which is marginally ultra wide.
Shield3: Not bad for a FF equivalent of 30mm F/3.4.
Why can't DPR just give us a equivalency debate forum? They want it so bad.
Alan Lai: FF equivalent whine....checkM43 sensor too small whine....checkToo big whine....checkToo expensive whine....checkAperture ring whine....checkOlympus is better whine....check
Back to topic: Good lens and handy focal length. Price is a little bit too high.

Since it's posted on DPR, I can only see barrel distortion in the second picture.
