Happy to see such a lens, but I'm always surprised the M43 camp is so slow to realize their crop sensor's advantage in reach.

Now, please release a 150/200mm f2.8 prime, which is priced around the range of FF 150/200mm f2.8 primes (read: moderately priced).

qwertyasdf: Good genes?! It's coming from the worst bloodline lollll

Well, one of the main reasons I ditched Samsung is becoz I can't adopt Leica M lenses to it, which I have a decent collection. The relatively long flange distance is silly, it turns pancake lenses to cupcake lenses. I know many disagree, but that's just me.

Ofcoz I have idea, Samsung makes great cameras, no doubt.
No one buys them regardless, also no doubt.

I have used all major brands, Samsung included, and I parted with it the quickest. There's just something not right with it, which I really can't explain lol....

On article What's missing? Ming Thein on the state of mirrorless (748 comments in total)

Fairly speaking, Canon and Panasonic mirrorlesses have decent battery life, Sony's bad, and Olympus is absolutely miserable (less than 200 shots per charge on EM5, IBIS off)

I want to suggest something out of the ordinary, how about a collapsible telephoto lens to keep everything small?! Since telephotos really have a lot of air space in them.

Since the picture is showing a Fuji camera, I'm particularly disappointed with them, why the heck are their lenses becoming bigger and bigger?!?!?! I love Fuji, but stopped with the X-A1 and 18--55mm F2.8-4, I have no desire to buy any of their huge lenses.

Marty4650: Expensive but a bargain in it's category.

If you want a full frame 35mm fixed lens compact camera, then your only options are this one and a Leica Q for twice the price.

I give Sony a lot of credit.

It's the most expensive in it's category (with the cheapest one being the RX1 1st gen!!!)

Chaitanya S: This is exactly what Sony should do, take atleast 2-3years for product upgrades rather than willy nilly every couple of months. This is certainly a drool worthy camera, and the upgrades it offered over 1st gen Rx1 will definitely juatify the upgrade for anyone.

(cough cough) Nex5 5N 5R 5T.....Nex3 C3 3N F3....

thxbb12: I very welcome the 100-400, but another 25mm? Really?
Here we go again with the redundant lenses! There are alread two 25mm lens: 1.4 and 1.7. Yayaya none have IS, but there are several holes in the line up that need to be adressed and are much higher priority IMO: UWA prime 8 or 10mm, standard fastish zoom (eg. 12-50 f2.8-4), fastish tele (eg. 50-200 f4) and a 17 f1.4

After waiting for years, I finally gave up and moved to Fuji. Their lens lineup makes a lot more sense than MFT. I can't be happier :-)

My thoughts exactly...

futile32: I always get this the wrong way round so correct me if I'm wrong, but "4:1 macro" would mean 4x life? Should it be "1:4 macro" ?

Yup, you're correct, 4:1 means 4x.

qwertyasdf: Seems that this lens has horrendous field curvature, from the sample picture here:

http://www.43rumors.com/first-few-image-samples-taken-with-the-voigtlander-nokton-105-mm-f095-lens/

The text indicate that it's the 10.5mm.
But in that scene, the problem is exacerbated.

I personally have the same bad experience with the CV 21/1.8.

I never understand why the top LCD screen is a good thing. I have used many many different models, and prefer looking at the settings in the rear LCD, isn't that a more convenient location???

In reply to:

johnvanr: So, if I read the conclusion about image quality then what you're really saying is that it's a great 300-450mm lens and a good lens up to 600mm if you use it at f/7.1 or f/8 and beyond. So, it's a 300-450mm f/5-6.3 lens or a 150-600mm f/8 lens, right?

While this article presents that with a positive spin, which is fine considering it's a relatively cheap lens, what it really means is that it's not a lens you can use beyond 450mm wide open, which severely limits its usability in anything but great light (as I found out myself renting it to shoot eagles during the winter).

No, it's a 150-600mm F5.0-6.3 lens

Not sure if it promotes creativity or restraints it...apparently one can only put the subject dead center.
