The point often missed is that thanks to the third party efforts, we can now enjoy freedom of choosing the lenses of choice across most of the offerings from every manufacturer.Something what was unthinkable a decade ago.I salute Novoflex and others for providing lens options (via adapters) beyond what Sony, Leica, M4/3 can offer.I'ts a wonderful time for us, photographers.
justmeMN: In their next version of this software, the zebra will automatically be turned into a unicorn.
Or have horizontal stripes. Marvelous.
What a loss!Michael was one of the most persuasive people who pushed and supported me to keep making the camera accessories. A wonderful man and mentor. I will miss him forever.
This is a good effort to show the capabilities of 1DxII in the hands of experienced casual photographer. Very good indeed.Would like to also see some pictures in more demanding venues like indoor sports or even a macro and wildlife photography which this camera should be excellent at.Overall, very pleasing results.
Thanatham Piriyakarnjanakul: It's not innovative just re-cycle.
Good catch, but I'm wondering how many photo enthusiasts bought that lens for everyday use? What was the cost of Nikon specialized lens?
Any M-mount lens release is an indication that the EOS-M line is still alive and kicking. The built in ring light is a very clever if not revolutionary feature.Bravo Canon!
Nice story but I'm still waiting for Contax G2 teardown.
Ooops! they forgot the brass lever to cock the shutter.
Richard Franiec: Majority of people with negative comments are confined into a "thinking inside box" category, I think.Just wondering what they do have to offer to put someone else's innovation to shame in terms of ideas or execution?Don't want it, don't buy it. Simple as that.Other than that shut your mouth (fingers) ...up.
I was carried away by reading so many negative comments which resulted in less than appropriate wording in my post. I apologize for that.Opinions need to be heard. Positive or not.

Another wonderful product from the great company.
All that for free from Leica?Oh, I forgot the price of admission.
A wonderful tribute to our heritage on micro-scale, skillfully done, bravo!Watching the clip, I actually forgot that the video was showcasing the camera.Congratulations!
Dan Bracaglia: Several readers have pointed out noticeable chromatic aberration in a couple of the images used in the shooting experience (all of which were shot with the EF-S 18-135mm F3.5-5.6 IS USM). I've gone back and reprocessed those offending images in ACR to remove the CA. Thanks!
Dan,If you want to showcase the sensor, you could use the best (EF) lenses at your disposal. This camera is not limited to EF-S lenses after all. Maybe the comparison between EF-S and EF lenses would be better representation what camera can do outside of the "kit lens"?
RaghavBaijal: Why can't Canon put this sensor in the next EOS M Camera & save itself a lot of humiliation vs the mirrorless competition! This sensor looks nice... especially the AF.
My thoughts exactly and I hope, they will that.
Marty4650: This beautiful lens will be available on March 24, which is exactly one week from today.
But two people already "own it" and one person "had it" and got rid of it.
Just wait for the "user reviews": two glowing, one bashing LOL
Same ol' will bring more cash than any mirrorless could dream about. Not even talking lenses and future upgrades to higher end models.As long as Canon and Nikon are most recognizable names in photo industry, they will play this game forever.
Richard Franiec: For the size/weight/price, this lens should require tweaks to reduce some serious issues regarding color fringing to qualify as an Art series lens.Just look at high contrast areas (in 100% view): plenty of purples and greens on the edges.
Thanks Rishi, I agree with your logic.
No, it is not intense but visible with and without glasses. On the portrait, CA seems indeed very well controlled, given the aperture used.For comparison both lenses can be used on 7DII and 5Ds respectively since the pixel pitch and effective aperture are almost identical.I would really like to see how the few years old Canon lens fares optically against the latest and greatest from Sigma, putting aside the difference in price.
