Conrad567: Metal construction. Weather sealed. Zooms to 84mm instead of 70mm while maintaining a constant 2.8 aperture all for less than 2/3 the price of the mighty Canon 24-70mm ii. (Which I own BTW) This also has a Filter thread of 77mm instead of the 82mm of the Canon. If it performs at least as good as the Canon or the FUJI 50-140mm then this lens will be a bargain.
It really seems to me that FUJI is trying to build professional type lenses in the hope of breaking into the fashion and wedding business. It will be interesting to see if it works. I have an X-T1 and 7 FUJI lenses. All of them are great lenses. Certainly expensive, at least when they are first released, but they do take a nice photo.
In what body did you put your 24-70 that makes it comparable to this new fuji's..???
DFPanno: What a laugh. Embarrassing really.
Everything is embarrassing until its done and success
left_i: Yeah! Auto ISO for manual mode.Looking forward to it being available in HK.
hydrospanner; there is situation when I want to control speed and aperture of camera and light change cant predict. Thats when I shoot my never stop kid outdoor. the best setting then is it
Henrik Herranen: Again, please, c'mon guys:Why isn't the sensor size in the list of "Key features"? Without sensor size the f-number doesn't tell, well, much anything. As camera enthusiasts you surely know this, so why isn't sensor size anywhere in this photography oriented site's article?
Example: a 1/2.3" sensor with an f/2.2 lens still collects slightly more light over the sensor area than a 1/3" sensor with an f/1.8 lens, and has a potential for slightly better low-light performance. Leaving sensor size out of the equation is quite misleading.
Here u come again....
quadraticadder: Dpreview states at the end of the article "the company claiming..." Can Dpreview produce an official claim made by the company? Did Dpreview check with Leica before publishing to find out whether the person who told them this was shooting their mouth off, and answering a question without knowing what the actual answer was? They could (should) have asked Leica for clarification first (without telling Leica the results of their investigation) before publication.Best,Steve
Seem you are smarter than people who run this site lol
