Tryglaw: Well, Lenstip's Polish motherpage just did a review, save for the lens being prone to flare when stepped down, it's rated excellent in every other aspect.If you can live with Google translation, here you go:http://www.optyczne.pl/297.1-Test_obiektywu-Sigma_A_18-35_mm_f_1.8_DC_HSM__Wstęp.html

Seems really good optics.
mumintroll: Fuji X-E1 not bad. But personally I think much better IQ have Sigmas DP1,DP2,DP3. I would really like to compare them in Raw.For studio, where is lot of light, for landscapers are Sigmas the best choice. I just regret, that we will never see review of those cameras here.
When I get used to the crispness of the photos taken with sigma cameras, all those bayer sensor photos look too fuzzy to me. My Canon and M43 gears have been sitting in the dry box for a long time since I got the SD1M and DP1/2M.
The first page says 775g (with battery) and page 2 says 675g (with battery)???
Good job Sigma! I'm getting one but out of stock already.
OMG the image on comparison page is SOFT.
Silentshuter: Heh, just bought my new a99, charged the battery, put it in the camera, attached the lens, turned it on and nothing. Whatever i tried to do my new a99 camera refused to turn on. Any ideas what is wrong?, or i am so unlucky to buy somethin allready broken before even used?? Any ideas what is wrong?
I'm sorry, just return it for a new one!!
I'm curious to see how it compares with Sigma DP2M.
Getting used to Feveon X3 images, these really look fuzzy.
Paul T Klenk: Yes, I, too, have a 24-105 L and it's a genuine workhorse. I use it all the time and get great results. So, why would I go to a 24-70mm f/4L? Well, only if the difference is spectacular and the additional macro feature is not going to do that for me. So, as the others have indicated, the actual images will be important. If one buys this lens through Amazon, the return policy is simply spectacular. Buy the lens, try it out, and if it doesn't meet your expectation, it can EASILY be returned. That may be my course to follow.
Where will those returned lenses go?
Very poor corners!
The orange "35mm FULL FRAME CMOS IMAGE SENSOR" collar looks cheap!!
Will it be able to beat Sigma DPxM?
After using the DP2M for a while, don't want to pick up my E-M5 again.
Very poor picture quality is to be expected.
Amazing amount of detail captured, almost as much as D800!!
I think I can do a better job here, at least I won't put on those out of focus and blurry pictures. :D
The Architect: I would like to purchase the EM5, but have a set of contax G series lens that I don't want to make redundant. Are these lens compatible with this camera? or can an adaptor be bought to use these lens with this camera?
Sure!! There are adaptors for almost every format of lenses for Micro 4/3 cameras.
