RedFox88: Meh. Only 5 lenses and only one of them is high quality.
I'd say only one of them (50mm) is a world class leader in image quality.
Karroly: Subjects are interesting, well framed, but I am bored with these highly saturated - and thus unnatural - colors most landscape photographers used these days. Do these landscapes really need such post-processing to look great ?
Landscape photography has become a test of post-processing skills; how can I outdo the guy next to me with more MegaPixels, more PhotoShopor whatever else, otherwise it's the same shot as the next guy. Not much going on.
Chris Yates: It's because of Sony and it's A7 mirrorless lineup. Canon still doesn't get it.Put out a FF mirrorless and see sales skyrocket. there are countless people like me waiting on the sidelines. But once I pull the plug on another system it's over.
I really wanted to say, and should have said any mirrorless system, not just the a7.

Not enough dynamic range. Although it took 5 years to shoot, it strongly appears to me as having been shot with the Canon 5DS R. :P
Touch screens, 4k video across the board, complete transparency with Canon Lenses, factory EOS adapter and I'm first to post. My wishlist to abandon Canon.
Chris Yates: Zeiss 21mm f2.8 ZE classic going on sale, please make offer.
Heck for that price, I'll even throw in the 85mm planar.
I was afraid it was my eyes, but thankfully, it's just plain old Fugly.

Fredrik Glckner: The microdrive was the innovation which made the Ipod possible. One of the really big game changers, in other words.
I still use mine for old times sake. I got it for free with the purchase of the D30.
A clog I cannot clear is a head failure.
TheWhiteDog: I suspect these might be overkill for producing prints from my Fuji x30' s files! ;)So probably is my Canon Pro 10. But they look great, I can definitely see the use of a violet ink in color printing. And for those new super cameras(D810, A7r2, Pentax medium format, etc) these are a perfect match but I think it would be best to buy either of the 2 with the new ink sets. Glad to see advancements in printers also! I, for one, love making prints.
wessuggs, I share your pain and sentiments. Sadly, I can't afford to buy a Canon. Stuck with the Epson
sjstremb: Not any mention of print head design or changes to print head life span. The Epson print head failure rate is a well documented weakness of 4900-9900 printers to the extent that there has been some attempts at a class action lawsuit. Just do a search here about it, it's really criminal.
I hope this new series is not more of the same.
My epson 7900 has been my worst investment ever. totally unreliable. I shall never buy epson again. $4k in the hole and counting.
Chris Yates: Kinda pricey for a Chinese brand.
Thank you for your support TKO.
Becksvart: Are these focus-by-wire, even if with hard stops and a distance scale? Like the FE 90 macro? I've seen no mention of this. Can't really be focus-by-wire if MF only, can they? ..Can they?
Putting me on means pulling my leg. :)

Ran Plett: That 21mm looks weird. I know it's not all about the looks (save for resale value) but I like the appearance of my older 21mm better. On the other hand, it's nice that they've done away with the chrome ring around the lens barrel that showed up in reflections, as well as a blue indicator dot on the outside of the lens so you can see how to mount it properly.
Other than that, if they haven't changed the optical formula, the previous gen. of the Zeiss 21mm should be a bargain.
Please define bargain price. I wholeheartedly agree the classic looks much better than the new 21mm.
