Cyril Reif: I find all the obsession with upgrades and finding reasons to upgrade amusing. I've been a photography enthusiast since 1962 when I got my first SLR, a Canon RM and then got a Nikon F Photomic FTn in 1971, which I used for 26 years.....when you've got a great product there is no reason to upgrade!
Did the quality of 35mm negative and slide film not improve over those 25 years?
JohnMatrix: It's official then. The EOS 100D is a girlie camera.
Absolutely NWWT. Just sayin that's all!
I own one myself - a lovely GF5 (in black I might add)
It's official then. The EOS 100D is a girlie camera.
JohnMatrix: My first question would have been:
So Mr Maeda, enough about cameras. Why after 21 years do we still have the same old 50mm f1.4 EF lens in the Canon line up?
Answer: Because if you want modern optics and AF in your 50mm we want you to spend three times as much and buy the f1.2L instead.
@ Michael_13 Yeah you're right. Nobody buys 50mm lenses anymore. sheesh!
My first question would have been:
OK, for those of you who thought you might actually find out WHEN and WHERE by reading this 'news' story, it's 26 June to 19 October 2014 @ Burlington Gardens, London.
Anyone knows what happens to the f stop when you attach the tele-converter? Presumably you don't get something for free? thx
Great photos, no doubt about that.
But wouldn't the title of this artcicle be better if it was "...on how to shoot staged engagement sessions for self-obsessed couples"?

Back to topic: Good lens and handy focal length. Price is a little bit too high.
Dare I say it, the truth hurts?
A body the size of the GM1 needs a redesigned pancake like the current 14mm f2.5. Not a larger, overpriced lens like this one "to Capture Fashionable Defocused Reportage Pictures".
The main point of the GM1 is pocketability surely?
dpr team: Any chance you could update your definitions here?
onlooker: > Like the 50mm focal length in full frame, the Touit 1.8/32 reproduces the perspective of the human eye
I wish we would stop repeating this myth.
I agree. That quote from the press release stood out as odd to me too. I think everyone aceepts that changing the focal length without changing the subject distance doesn't change perspective.
So the statement as written in the press release (or was it even DPR's own words?) needs qualifying with additional info regarding subject distances.
two questions:1. why would you want to do this? (the end result is quite annoying to watch IMO).2. why is this even 'news'?
JohnMatrix: dpr team: can we agree whether it should be Olympus's or Olympus' and stick with it? ;)
yes of course they are (though we are talking about punctuation, not grammar).
The point I was making was regarding consistency and 'house style'
dpr team: can we agree whether it should be Olympus's or Olympus' and stick with it? ;)
Wouldn't argue with those choices. Both very nice products.
alexander kooistra: crop or no crop the aperture stays 1.2 is it not? I see people multiplying aperture by crop, but thats not the case. So it's a 32mm 1.2 lens with a price that suits a 1.2 lens...
but even Nikon play the game in their press release: "86mm equivalent in 35mm format", yet for some reason they don't state what its equivalent f stop would be.
I agree, it is priced appropriately given the aperture and construction. But Nikon are clearly selling this as a "f1.2" lens because people know "f1.2" lenses in 35mm format produce wonderful bokeh etc.
Good grief DPR. Adobe seems to have you doing basic market research for them now, for free no less. Too little, too late.
Looks great. It's very long(!) but that's to be expected - kudos to Sigma for putting this out. They're putting Canon & Nikon to shame with their latest line of lenses for non-FF users.
Andrew Booth: So is Canon going to leave us dangling with just a single pancake lens in the lineup (and 40mm isn't a great length for APS-C)?
I guess you're expected to slap one of Canon's traditional big-ass kit zooms on this thing.
Something like a 20 or 24mm f2.8 pancake might even persuade me to trade in my micro 4/3rds for an SL1.
Don't forget the voigtlander 20mm and 28mm pancakes. Canon could easily give crop users a 30mm f2.8 pancake but choose not to.
iShootWideOpen: This SL1 and the 22mm F/2 similar to the EOS M along with the 40 2.8 would make for an awesome small kit.
My bad. I completely forgot that 65mm f2.8 primes were popular as heck during the film SLR days. Everybody wanted one coz they were so useful.
