is smeary-noisy as heck for ISO 640 full-frame no less! At this ISO full-frame should be crisp and sharp. This is hardly a good sample of what this gear is capable of.

"He's too proud, or too immature, ..." Such argumentum ad hominem gets one nowhere. Sorry it appears on this usually civil forum.

ulfie knows what he sees. And that is that the image is indeed "smeary-noisy" regardless of how it was processed or work flow, etc. It is what it appears as, smeary-noisy. Can any of you deny that? It doesn't matter how you processed it, or even if it's done via the gear as a jpeg. What ultimately matters is the final image itself. ulfie

My remark is not misleading. It's just an opinion: the IQ of the image is not good. Period.

Edgar in Italy, If you think this image has great IQ ... well then I don't know what to say. Your sarcasm cannot hide its insufficiency and hardly even mediocre quality.

Hmm ... , my lowly and technologically aging Olympus E-PL1 w/ Panasonic 20mm f1.7 "pancake" lens' "Original" image jpegs at ISO 100 look sharper than these full-frame ones from Nikon.

Why not just get a ZM 50/2 w/ E-mount adapter? Save money and get basically the same thing as the Loxia.

Finally, the perfect lens ... ? Well, as Zen monk Suzuki-roshi said, "Seek perfection in imperfection." This leaves, for me at least, options: (1) Go figure. or (2) Cough up the cash.

In reply to:

ulfie: Size-wise, it's a dang blunderbuss! Kind of negates its low-light, f1.4 shooting abilities if camera shake adds blur due to its size/length, no?

It's not just weight but length of the lens too. Even a little movement is multiplied by its longer length.

Weight alone doesn't negate hand-held camera shake. On a tripod, of course. It is LONG, 100mm/4 inches. Add the body size too and hand-holding steadily at low shutter speeds is dicey for sure.

It should be the CC not the T model. CC for Conspicuous Consumption.

The original-version jpeg sample pics aren't better than much cheaper camera-lens options. To me, at least, jpeg IQ quality is all I want and need and use (for now). To spend this much money for this quality is a non-starter for me. Your bank account may vary.
