$16.95 for a simple how to ebook? I would just pay the guys at luminous landscape a tad more and get 9 hours of video series on all parts of the software.

No ebook should be over $5 bucks.

Pro u4/3 video market? Canon video lenses are 40 grand, if this is good quality, i can see someone paying $2500 for it.

peevee1: That is fun, the mistake of giving D800 and 5D3 the same 82% was corrected. But - by giving D800E higher "Value" rating?

At my local food store, they always post items (10 mangoes for $10) Sounds like a good deal until you find out that a single mango is $1.

If Nikon is giving you more camera but charging you more...that is not better value. If anything its the same. Now, if they had the D800e at the same price...that is better value.

Also, I have a D800e on order and I think its worth the extra $300 and I thank Nikon for at least giving us that option.

5D mark III 82% Gold
D800 82% Gold

D800E 84% Gold (better IQ scores and better value?)

I agree with this, D800 should have better bang for the buck (aka value) than the D800E.
and/or
The D800E should have less or the same value since it only provides slight image quality for 10% more money.

Must see!! What a 150mm f1.8 full frame lens looks like. At least I think its a full frame lens.

This is a magic behind u4/3 and yes, i understand this is a 75mm lens and not a 150mm.

In reply to:

Thoughts: It is hard to believe a lens annoucement gets such attention. Why bother this equivalent thing? It says the lens can take shoots in low light in concerts etc and portraits. That is it.

I have to say as others. Olympus lenses are the prettiest. But surely they should make some black version ones for that black OMD EM5.

This is a 75mm lens. Its not a 150mm. Also...on a full frame system a 150 f3.6 has the same DOF as a 75mm f1.8, even if both lenses are full frame. Get it yet?

Red G8R: Does this apply to North American bodies too or should I wait for Nikon USA/Canada ?

I tested it on US body. Works great.

D800 used to lock up when I put a CF card formatted with a D700 (with a few images taken with the D700)

Firmware fixed the issue. I did get the hourglass for about 45 secs before it said (no images) Then it let me shot and play back images (d800 images only)

OK, one last time for the people that still don't get it:

This is a 75mm f1.8. It has the DOF of a 75mm f1.8. Its NOT a 150mm lens (Duh) Let me say it again. Its not a 150mm lens. This lens will produce the SAME DOF of a 75mm on a Pentax Q, u4/3, full frame, MF, LF or your kitchen wall. A 75mm will always be a 75mm. Do you get the picture? The image circle of this lens will over a u4/3 full frame.
Don't compare it to a 150mm because its not one. This is not that advanced...

Mssimo: My 2 cents

75mm F1.8 has the same DOF no matter what format camera its mounted on.

DOF of this lens is perfect for portraits.

No need to stop it down.

Lots of special glass reduces the need for post corrections.

You get what you pay for and this lens is worth every penny and it will not drop in price for a long time.

@Peter 13

How about its a 75mm F1.8? The lens does not care what camera yo u mount it on, it will produce the same DOF. Yes, you will have to stand about twice as far if its on 4/3 or many times as far if its on a Pentax q but the DOF is the same.
What your trying tell me is that this 75mm is not a 150mm (Duh) and yes...a 150mm will produce a shallower DOF. There you go Peter, We can hold your hand till you get it.

@Peiasdf The 1.2L's are great lenses but they are large and DOF makes them very hard to work with. You have the way change the way to shoot. I also wish canon had a low ISO of 10 in order to shoot wide open in the day light without 3 ND filters stacked in front of the lens.

waxwaine: If I remember the idea of m43 was "Go compact", and this is not a very good example. No point on this compared to any APS-C camera.

This lens would be about 450-500g on APS-C and 900g on full frame.
This thing looks way more solid than my old 85mm F1.2L.

ybizzle: Near Leica quality without the Leica price! ;)

It should be able to go toe to toe with the best APC cameras. D7000, Nex 7, K5, 7D and so on. You need to understand the physics on why u4/3 sensor is the "perfect" size. The older sensors were bad but it did not stop people from taking beautiful pictures. This lens will serve the current and future gen u4/3 cameras well. As soon as I get a silver E-M5, I will put one of these on order. I plan on using it for wedding along with the D800.

jmmgarza: Now if only the Sony NEX had lenses of this quality.

You have the sigma 30mm F2.8. Sharpest lens for the nex system at this time.

Its not misleading, its just a fact. Your the one trying to "convert" numbers for your own purpose. Everyone loves shallow DOF, but being a owner of the canon 501.2L and the 851.2L, too shallow became a issue. Some of us want a nose or ear in focus and not just eye lashes.

This lens was designed for portraits and great bokeh.
They made it 75mm for this reason (no need to convert number but if you need to, convert it to the format you use Pentax Q, Nikon J, u/43,APS-C,FF,MF,LF...ect)
It is considered a Telephoto lens non the less, check out specs for the FOV.
Its a beautiful lens that you will get Bokehlicious results with.
