Re: The lenses are too big

I am trying to get away from those big lenses.

I shoot a Canon 6D, but I can put on a 40/2.8 pancake lens when I want to go small. This gives me the frame of view that m4/3 gets with a 20/1.4 lens. I see there is a Panny 20/1.7, so that would be close. My 40 is a quality full frame lens and the dimensions are very, very close the near equivalent on m4/3.

Canon 40/2.8

Filter Thread Front: 52 mm

Dimensions (DxL) Approx. 2.7 x 0.9" (6.86 x 2.29 cm)

Weight 4.6 oz (130 g)


Panny 20/1.7

Filter Thread 46 mm

Dimensions (DxL) Approx. 2.48 x 1.0" (6.30 x 2.54 cm)

Weight 3.5 oz (99 g)

Now, I also shoot a Sigma 35/1.4 and it's huge. Sigh. But the Voigtlander 35/1.4 I had on my mirrorless was a full frame fast 35 and it wasn't large (and wasn't AF either). I suspect Sony is going to work very hard to keep lens sizes from getting out of hand for their small FF cameras.
