On Did Sigma design the Olympus M.Zuiko 75mm F1.8? news story (200 comments in total)
In reply to:

goblin: I would have no problems whatsoever to know that Sigma designed my 75mm 1.8. I love Sigma.

Still:

- Olympus 75mm f1.8 lens: Officially announced on February 8, 2012. Prototypes in the works at least months prior to that. Rumored at least a month prior to the official announcement. Don't remember if there were photos leaked or not prior to the official announcement.

- Sigma patent: dated February 3, 2012.
So if the 75mm was their doing, they designed it, tested it, finalized it and ONLY AFTER thought about FILING a patent to protect their concept ?

I find this naive, at the least.

You only have to file for the patent before you put out the product. They definitely would have already planned to patent it.

JOrtiz: Unbealibable - meaning: I do not believe it. There is nothing (and I hope, nobody) holding the camera.

I was looking in the wrong place, I guess. But the actual traces of the arm are well hidden.

I think that the "dissolve into sand" part you are talking about is not a stitching error, but there is actually sand covering part of the vehicle.

I don't doubt there is an arm, but I am curious where it is attached.

In reply to:

mpgxsvcd: "Built-in 3 stop neutral density filter" Intriguing. Tell me more.

How does the ND filter work? Is there a physical filter hat is moved into place inside the camera, or is it done electronically by adjusting the sensor sensitivity somehow?

Nice shot, but what is the deal with the people up in the spotlights at the top?

I thought it was supposed to look other-worldy. The only thing I would try to improve on is the purple fringing on the leaves at the top.
