A fool and his/her money are still easily parted.

Nah... I'm waiting for the digital 8 X 10 camera with IBIS.

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.

Aha! I went to their interactive website ... and clicked and dragged the luminous cube around. So ... their new product is ... drum roll please ... a new Rubric's cube with only 6 facets. Boohoo :-(

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.

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.

Nice image(s). But never split (or chainsaw) wood without eye protection. Never!

On article A look inside Sigma's lens factory (89 comments in total)

Reality check: This is a PR (Public Relations) video, a form of advertising, not a detailed and exact QA (Quality Assurance) documentary nor one on Japanese work values, ethics and non-smiling. Get real folks. Caveat: I lived/worked in Japan for 8 years and have in-laws there. You want to see or know Japan, go there for more than a week as a tourist. Corporate PR videos are just that corporate PR. Not all that is Japan.

71 mm (2.8″) long make it a bit long for steady, low-light, hand-held shooting considering these two full-frame Sonys have no IBIS unless you're willing to pump up the ISO. The price for a "normal" lens is, IMHO, ridiculous.
