Mr Birk: Wow, High res.... Wonder How Nokia could achieve 38 mpix without shift ;)
I doubt the bulk of those MPs actually yield useful info. That setup is probably beyond the diffraction limit wide open.
jukeboxjohnnie: I don't understand the market for this lens you choose a great brand like Canon or Nikon to enjoy the best optics or flash they produce and then go for a cheapo copy inferior accessory like this? I wouldn't have this for free....
Sounds like a brand insecurity problem. Who cares what brand it is if it works? You don't even know how the lens performs and are already writing it off out of pure fear. If some fly by night Chinese company can reproduce a Canon lens for 1/5th the price then Canon isn't as great as you thought.....
Lapkonium: Do photographers who use copied gear have a moral right to prevent copying of their work? I'd say no.
This is silly. So if I use a non-OEM battery or flash I'm giving up my copyrights? As if Canon invented the first 35mm lens.
sportyaccordy: They should make one for Sony FE! I would buy 6!!!!
The extra speed would be worth it to me. 35mm is my go to indoor/walkaround FL.

Can I buy one of these new sensors and slap em in an old body?
DuxX: I'm waiting long time for something similar from Nikon f1.8 G kitchen.
Me too. If they shrink down the D3500 like they did with the D5500 and make a 16 and 24 f1.8 G I might have to come back.
If only they would make some 24 MP Bayer bodies... for less than $1000
Should have asked when they are going to update their DX primes. They need a full set to go with the 35 1.8
sportyaccordy: No love for E mount or MFT anymore? That's disheartening :(
All I want are some F1.8 speed 24 & 35mm E mount primes for ~$500 a pop. I think that is possible, no?
The smaller the FL, the bigger the difference in design requirements for FF vs APS-C. So there's no way they could make a 10-20 FE lens that could compete on price with something like the EF-M 11-22. 11-22 APS-C is 16-33 on FF. They have to develop the APS-C lenses in isolation on the wide end.
sportyaccordy: When are you guys gonna finish this review? It was started in 2014 despite the "February 2015" dateline
Thanks for the update and feedback! A "late" review capturing important firmware updates is more valuable than a rushed review without it. Opacity breeds (unwarranted) conspiracy theories...
@brownie314 judging by the # of comments this has a decent amount of interest. It has about half those of the 5DS 1st impressions over the same period.
@alfredo_tomato if financial support is a requirement for questioning content how much are you paying this site, or more importantly me?
sportyaccordy: I think the EOS M4 will be very strong if they put a viewfinder on it. Strange thing is though I don't know if Canon MAKES an EVF.
@rrccad in my opinion, yes there is something wrong with the M3 not having an EVF at this point, if it doesn't have an LCD that is viewable in direct sunlight. Hard to compose/confirm AF when you can't see what the camera sees.
The A3000's viewfinder takes away from its value. Looks like the viewfinder from a camcorder from the early 90s.

nekrosoft13: interesting interview, but pathetic Canon point of view. they act like their the best in everything, nothing scares them, yet every company out there is making better gear then them.
If Canon doesn't believe in itself why should anyone else?
Plus keep in mind they are still a if not the top selling ILC company, and are still highly regarded by pros. So there's merit to what he's saying.
I think there are a lot of APS-C shooters who want more, but don't want to change systems to get better lenses. Plus the smaller the FL the bigger the differences in lens design for APS-C vs FF. People buy their 19 and 30mm 2.8s despite them being pretty slow... I think more standard equivalent FLs and F/2 speed would move.
No love for E mount or MFT anymore? That's disheartening :(
If Sony would make a wide angle for the 24 1.8Z I think I would have to buy one.
sportyaccordy: Gold award? For what?
The A7 also ranks (a LOT) lower than this, despite being a revolutionary camera, having the same ergonomics, better (non-low light) IQ, etc.
For all folks griping about DxO's methodologies, they are at least more objective and somewhat consistent compared to what goes on here, based on this review.
I'm definitely curious to see how this will compare to the 5DS/R...
