I've been wanting to try a Sigma Art, and 20mm works great for the stuff I do. I'm going to buy one of these once they are out.
I ordered a 20. I'm heading to Europe in a week -- I hope it shows up in time. I like sling bags, and need to carry a 5d3 with a couple of lenses.
I like the idea. More options/functionality is always better (for me, at least) than less. And I could see using the file system and networking extensions to link cameras to devices networked at home. The initial utility would relate to being better able to manage image files. Subsequent utility might be giving the photographer access to more cloud services from a camera. Sign me up.
Do any vendors have this lens in stock yet? If not, does anyone know when it is supposed to be in stock?
I'm happy to see this model. I was an early adopter of a GF1 and have gotten a lot of use from it. I wasn't crazy about the controls direction of the GF3, and prefer the traditional rangefinder feel. I could see buying one of these (or its successor) in a year or two.
It's regrettable that the LVF1 is incompatible -- I just bought one for a motorcycle tour of Africa. It did the job, but I wasn't crazy about it. An exchange program might be nice.
And I'm looking forward to getting the new power zoom lens.
