Re: NEW SR5 Rumor! 30mm f1.8!

If it comes up to the optical standard of the Sigma 30 I would certainly be interested. I'm not talking just of "sharpness" but of colour and micro-contrast; the current Sony lenses look a bit dull and flat compared with the Sigmas (or good legacy lenses), only the Zeiss 24 looks as good.

It would be nice to have a small (the Sigma 30 is "small enough") AF lens that has usable manual focus (unlike the Sigma) and with rendering to challenge my favourite F.Zuiko 38/1.8 but without the flare (like the Sigma). I doubt it will satisfy all of my wishes but I live in hope
