On article ZEISS goes wide with Loxia 21mm F2.8 for Sony E-mount (224 comments in total)

why does every lens for this system end up being like $1400?

If it's going to be made in e mount, why does it say with adapter?

So for us non-Sony experts, are these APS-C lenses or FF lenses? Are they for use with the crop factor of a crop sensor, or are they really wide for FF? And what is the adapter for they mention if they are E-mount? Am I the only one that read that and went, "huh"?

Cane: I don't get it, why not make them FE mount instead of E mount with an adapter?

"All three lenses will feature a Sony E-mount for use with full-frame Sony cameras sans an adapter."

dlb41: Why do underwater cameras look so goofy?

Remember people, all cameras should be black and look like a proper camera. There should be little freedom of expression in a devise that makes art. Only the artist is allowed that.

Joe Ogiba: It's funny seeing DSLR fanboys talking shi* about mirrorless cameras. They think the huge flipping mirror DSLR is the future. Wrong, the DSLR is the buggy whip of cameras. I bet the top people at DPR know that but they depend on the aging DSLR sheep for view count. The A7r II, A7s II , NX1 etc are the future.

Fan boys make this site. Joe, take a step back.

My underwater brick wall test shows small sensors still stink, but they keep using them.

Marksphoto: 2.8 is old news, give us 2.0 and you have a deal.

I am sure you would fault that for something too.

TN Args: Let's hope the camera isn't as 'me too' as the lens spec. OTOH introducing a new camera and making it a DSLR instead of mirrorless is about as 'me too' as one can get. Like introducing a 'new' TV with a CRT.

They aren't releasing a FF mirrorless. Stay with the class.

You could decide to get back into photography and give up the internet.

RichRMA: Kind of a game of "me too" with Nikon and Canon. Why not surprise people with a 20-70mm f/2.8?

Nope, they can't win no matter what they do.

Dan Vincent: Not hard to have a lens out when all you do is put it in a different case. Smart move by Pentax. The Tamron 24-70 is a good lens already, don't reinvent the wheel.

@iudex. Maybe a forensic team can do a detailed investigation. I saw it once on CSI.

P&S image quality with a really long lens.

I assume these are manual focus only?

Pentax doesn't have to be Canon or Nikon to survive and profit. Let that sink in.

TTLstalker: Not sure if this is the right move. Maybe they should do full frame mirrorless instead since it seems the industry is going in that direction. If they spend their time and resources developing lenses for a full frame DSLR, the lenses would need an adapter if they ever wanted to go mirrorless.

It's surprising you two aren't executives in the camera industry.

Cane: Zeiss loves manual focus.

@antony, you do realize you can manually focus AF lenses too, right?
