It's great for the speed freaks. This brings comparable to 85mm f1.8 DoF capability. Now we need a 12mm f0.95 and 67.5mm f0.95

On Leica announces X Vario zoom compact with APS-C sensor article (757 comments in total)

This will compete with the Hasselblad lunar for the absurdest camera of 2013...

Great lens for sure and the first to bring some respectable DoF control to the 1 system. Overpriced? A lot, but price will come down rather quickly, you'll see!

dopravopat: WANT! :-)

Now will there be a 35 - 70 f1.8 to match this? And eventually a 70 - 200 f2 for APS-C. :-P

I can see a 35-70 f1.8 and 70-135 f1.8...

Future user: Great. Now make a 8-16 f1.8 and 50-100 f1.8. I bet some FF users would sheet on their pants, LoL!

You aren't wrong, but that's just the limitations we've had with wide lenses until now. With f1.8 in the ultrawide range there would be still a large depth of field for landscape, and tripod could be avoided in lower light. Wouldn't it be great to leave tripods at home and use lower isos?

It would be very useful for handheld night landscapes, and indoors, wouldn't it?

Future user: Wasn't Olympus working on a 0.5x reducer? YES! Seems so:

Hope that see the daylight some day...

Meanwhile, this Metabones would be useful on lenses like Sigma 8-16mm (widest zoom) or 20mm f1.8 (fastest FF wide). However, the cost..not sure whether it's worth the adittional spending over native lenses. If only it was 0.5x...

Come on, Olympus, bring that 0.5x!

No, but for OM lenses.

On Roundup: Enthusiast Zoom Compact Cameras article (421 comments in total)

It's impressive how much better these tiny sensors got in the past few years, even beating some older yet much bigger sensors in the noise and DR department...

I think this is a test prior to making their DX line mirrorless. For now, it looks aimed to compete against Sigma DP1m, even inheriting some lacking features (EVF, IS, articulated screen).

Well, by its specifications I guess the lens is more designed for macro than portraits, but I bet there won't be sharper and more detailed portraits than the ones taken by this DP3m. Per-pixel sharpness and detail reproduction of DPXm series (at low iso) is out of this world. Shame the poor high-iso and weird color blotches... When Sigma will solve that...
