WordsOfFarewell: Now, give me a 18mm 1.8 or better yet 16mm 1.8. Tamron you can do it, someone just has to.

Checked out various reviews of the 24 1.4 most were pretty stellar. But I indeed didn't check photozone yet. Thanks for the reminder. Seeing as various great primes are released I still haven't given up home for a prime UWA. There is a market. And where there is money to be made there will be people trying to do so. I mean maybe the Samyang guys will step up their gaime with a 14mm 2.0 one day. ;)

Well, manufacturers suprised with some good UWAs like their stunning 24 1.4 by Sigma or the 20mm 1.8 by Nikon. There must be something in the margins that is left to be done even if for a greater price tag. ;)

On Sony reportedly shifting focus to full-frame cameras article (454 comments in total)

WordsOfFarewell: Time for the other manufaturers to battle them with good FF bodies with good ergonomics and better lenses. ;)

Actually Pentax already announced a FF body to be released somewhen around the end of the year if I am correct. I'd be suprised if they don't kick everyone in the nuts with their value for money ratio since Pentax usually is the best in the departement when it comes to bodies (not lenses though).

Tim Ester: The resolution dp send to mobile is crap - whats the point

Not like one should judge image quality by looking at it on a mobile device anyway?

This and a 12-24 f2.0 (which I'm desperately waiting for) and I have all the lenses I need. In case both have a 82mm filter thread. ;)

Hm, they should take their time so the FF and the lenses will be that much better! :D

Good thing I place my camera on a tripod for the most time. :D

WordsOfFarewell: 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 ...

Yeah true, but I wonder how then they got the idea when Olympus already uses it and patented it years ago. Guess the application in Smartphones is something different then. But yeah most of that comment came from my resentment towards apple rather than actually being interested in what Apple does. :D

Damn, 8mm 1.8 I wish I had something like that from my D800. Like a 12mm 1.8. :D

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. ;)
