Why am I not surprised that Apple steals an idea and patents it. Still who the hell needs something like that in a smart phone anyway ...

WordsOfFarewell: Hm, I wonder how the lens will perform in the astro field.

Yeah that is what I was wondering. The Nikon 20mm 1.8 is rather ok, but still has considerable coma. I hope this might be a bit better.

How I wished thed 11-28 2.8 would've been for FF. :D

WordsOfFarewell: Finally Pentax is also stepping up their game. Too bad I recently switched to Nikon. But the lenses look amazing. I'd be keen to know how these work in astro with the shifting sensor! Also I'm eager to see their UWA range for FF.

Suit yourself, for me it made a big difference. ;)

I needed the extra MP for large size printing. But I'll consider switching back depending on the price and performance. Nikon handling is like 5 years behind time compared to Pentax, Olypmus or Sony. ;)

I'd love to see them offer something like a 16-40 f/2.8 with a filter thread. I'd be all over it. :D

Nice I've waited 5 years and then I finally gave up and switched to Nikon last summer. :/

On Canon EOS 5DS / SR First Impressions Review preview (2359 comments in total)

Haha, I'm not really excited for yet more MPs my 36 is enough for me. But I'm envious of the 11-24 f/4 lens. I can't even afford a 14-24 f/2.8. But I hope that Nikon will pick up the challenge and get something out along the lines of 12-28 f2.8 with a 82mm filter thread to combat landscapers and cityscapers leaving for Canon again like they did leave for Nikon with the D800 and 14-24. I'd give my last shirt for a lens like that.

On Canon's Q4 earnings report shows camera sales are down article (315 comments in total)

I bet it's because Sony and Nikon upped their game significantly so people rather buy their stuff. Would be interesting to get their numbers as well.

Sounds reasonable indeed.

robjons: Don't get it. As I understand it, about 90% of Nikon's DSLR sales are DX, yet all the announcements are for FX products. Oh, except Sigma will offer a new 18- whatever zoom lens. Great.

Personally, I'd like an APS-C-only 10mm 2.8 prime.

Nikon and Canon should be using their APS-C lines to bury M4/3. (Not that I have anything against any M4/3 camera, just talking marketing strategy.)

Isn't there a manual 10mm Samyang for APSC? ;)

Still no UWA with a wider angle than 16mm that takes filters the old way. Sad :(

Looks great but I guess I'll still wait for the rumored Sigma 14-24 that takes 82mm filters.

Direct link | Posted on Sep 20, 2014 at 15:03 UTC as 5th comment

Hm, if this took filters I'd be all in but I guess I'll wait for the rumored Sigma instead. ;)

On Pentax K-3 Review preview (509 comments in total)
In reply to:

phoenix15: So what could be the next now Pentax ?
1. Pentax K-02, mirrorless with new mount to maintain compactness
2. Pentax FF with 36 MP, DSLR.
3. Lastly, lenses with better AF. 12-24, 17-70, 16-50, 50-135. They all need new updates.

If Pentax released a FF body I'd finally have a reason to upgrade my K5 ;)

matthew saville: Blah, where's a PENTAX MOUNT version of this lens, ehh? Seriously!

=Matt=

Yep, pretty much what I thought...

Direct link | Posted on Dec 10, 2013 at 13:35 UTC

I'd die to get this for Pentax mount. 2,8 at the full range something I'd love to get my hands on for night sky stuff and it even has a filter thread for NDs. I'm really sad that Tokina doesn't manufacture their lenses for KAF mount - I'd most likely have almost only Tokina lenses if they did.

Direct link | Posted on Dec 10, 2013 at 13:35 UTC as 5th comment

If this had a filter thread it'd be my always on lens for landscaping. I'm still thinking about getting it though. May be great for twilight and night stuff where the exposures are long enough anyway. ;)
