It's giving me a headache :(

I don't think it will have as much distortion as the Sony FE 28/2...but that is a cheap Sony lens design ;-)

The question Sigma should be asking is..."Does my bum look big in this?"

KW Phua: How can this be a DSLR user? Holding one hand, using the rear viewfinder for shot. How to get an sharp image without shake. Even when I use smart phone for shoot, I hold with both hand and not to extend the arm.

Because men tend to have more strength in one arm...no need to explain why.

"Sigma UK has said that the company's latest compact camera "

DP0 161.4mm/6.4” (W) × 67mm/2.6” (H) × 126mm/4.9”(D)
X100T 127mm x 74mm x 52 mm (5 x 2.91 x 2.05″)

Not what I call a compact camera...

BaumBoyPhoto: It's too bad it still has that blasted 29.59 time limit in video recording. The lack of that limit was a big point for the GH4.

Why is that EU causes all the problems. They take lead out of solder, which produces a less secure solder (I think NASA still use lead in their solder) and we get a restricted camera cause of them also. What next...a windows tax?! Is there any hack/mod out there to bypass the 29mins 59secs???

Governments will tax air soon, so bring your bottled air to your next job. Australia had the carbon tax...which is a tax on air...

Photoman: Will the cheaper Yongnuo nifty fifty beat this lens for quality???

@Eleson So they have improved the mechanics (faster/quieter AF and metal mount) but not the image quality. Does it need to be improved? I use to use the 50/1.4 back with film, but never used the 50/1.8.

It would be interesting to see a comparison. Did the improve the image quality over the old model? Would be good to see.

What the heck?????

Maybe, but that was the explanation I got from a online seller once. I don't know why they can't just cancel the auction and re-list it once it is in stock.

When online sellers are out of stock, they change the price so high, that no buys it. Once they have stock, they put it back to the normal price.

I have owned the ART 30mm & 60mm on a M43 body in the pass and have the 19mm on my A6000 and I have always been happy with the image quality. The 19mm even at 2.8 on my A6000 is sharp.

Mike FL: So Phottix released a product without bothering to do some very basic testing.

Oh, well.

It is Phottix's fault b/c Nikon can live by itself without Phottix, but it is NOT other way around.

NO?

@AlexRuiz Nikon have a good flash system, but a old method of sending data to the flash. IR is only good for indoors and 2.4Ghz radio systems like the Odin is superior for range, distance and use for outdoors. Odin improves on the Nikon system.

Nikon are way behind when it comes to TTL triggers (still using IR Nikon?) so customers will seek out a better product. Phottix make high quality products and at least they tell their customers with issues.

In reply to:

Marksphoto: what purpose does this lens serve and why should I want to buy it...

It's compact, it's fun and the purpose is to enjoy photography. Also the VM_E adapter gives you close focus with normal M mount lenses. Look at Brian Smith's web page on Sony adapters for an example.

A silly toy that would out last any AF lens, especially fly-by-wire lenses.

Photoman: Looks like the faulty old Kodak sensors in the Leica M9's.

Yes. It looks like a fungus or cracking over the WHOLE sensor. Had to send them back to Leica to get replaced.
