Sample Images:
Excellent lens and excellent sample images. Huge compliments @ dpreview for providing sample images that are both telling about the lens and yet still are very enjoyable to look at. I am really hoping for more of the same. Thank you so much!

@ Richard on the Article
Excellent Article. This Sigma lens will cause a little photography revolution making APS-C just as desirable than FF. And your Article makes this very transparent. Nice writing and very lovely sample images. Illustrating the point and a joy to look at. This Article was as much about photography than about technology. Thank you so much!

Lan: OK; I've slipped through into a parallel universe haven't I?

On the news pages there's a Sigma lens that looks cool, and a Hasselblad that's a sad joke.

Now where did I leave my Stepper...

Look at the sample images, this lens is cool! If you are serious about photography, you might forget about your stepper and stay in this parallel universe and get this lens. It is most likely not available in the universe you came from :-)

Ah, and Hassy has lost it since long time in my universe too. They dropped the ball when they closed their system and Phase One picked it up. Since then it has been constantly down hill for them.

sfa1966: Very impressive. Sigma, make a Pentax K-mount version please.

Yeah, this thing rivals Limited lenses! Not in its size, but in IQ. Very impressive indeed. Hell, I am considering getting one, as changing primes is not that much fun and this lens covers my most used focal lengths. Darn impressive lens. Now Canon and Nikon has to catch up with Sigma. What a nice inversion :-)

Interesting, no hint of purple fringing in the cables in the extreme corner. Impressive :-)

ogl: Funny. Missed focus

Yeah, just a bit. It is on the forehead and not on the eye. That being said, hitting the focus @ 35 mm f/1.8 is really hard. Even the slightest movement of the photographer or the subject can kill the spot focus. And on top of it, most DSLR AF system is not up to the task focusing f/1.8 properly all the time.

Still to me this image is worth publishing, as it is a wonderful shot. And in reality you will shoot this image of a great moment slightly out of focus. And this particular shot tells me that this lens renders the image in a way that the slightly out of focus is not distracting, which is a great ( and seldom ) quality in a lens.

I still love this shot and am grateful that it has been shared. Thank you.

Interesting shot. The extreme corner sharpness of the lens wide open outperforms the sensor introduced reduced resolution of 1000 ISO. So not good to test lens performance, but indeed excellent to show real world application. And the fact that this lens does outperform the sensor at 1000 ISO even in extreme corners is still impressing me. Also good bokeh in the transition area also considering it is a difficult subject. I am a low light freak shooting many of my pics at f/2 and I can see nothing where this lens is worse than my beloved prime. Again, truly impressive.

Once again, amazing sharpness wide open in corner to almost extreme corner. Lovely bokeh with even with critical highlight subjects. Pretty darn amazing performance.

A wonderful Photo!

Pattern in the table shows that corner sharpness of the lens is great, even wide open. Bokeh is lovely even with difficult bright highlights, subjects focus is on the left eye and every hair on that eye is rendered perfectly. The critical transition area to the right eye has a beautiful bokeh. Wonderful lens.

And it is great photo which is fun to look at. Nice atmosphere and composition.

Thanks so much for!

@ Richard: Excellent sample image! Add some post processing and you have fine art and a great lens evaluation :-)

And i am really, really impressed with this lens. Object close to corner at f/1.8 and still very sharp considering open aperture. The charismatic aberrations can be cleaned up in post processing which will increase the perceived sharpness even more.

There are some very bright highlights and they show no any purple fringing. It is possible this thing is better than my 35 mm AL f/2. Really impressive!

waitformee: i noticed that dpreview say that this is a preproduction copy and quality is not that good. In this case, why give a preview or bad quality images?

This image suggest that the quality of images this lens can produce is already impressive!

deleted_081301: "Swedish camera manufacturer Hasselblad is finally shipping the 'Lunar'."

Hasselblad LONG AGO ceased to Manufacture Cameras... and long ago ceased to be SWEDISH .....Most of thier Cameras are made in Japan by Fuji as are the lenses for them

Now they are rebadging SONY's with a wood Veneer

@ MichaelKJ
I do not see how you need a camera engineer to add ornaments to a finished camera product?
