Oh come on, Am. Always playing the same old song. It sounds like you have been traumatized by the pl25. Maybe you just could not afford it and were obliged to content yourself with the sigma

No Sir, it was Roger Cicala to draw my attention on the disappointment of the PL at full aperture.

But many fast lenses suffer from that - that was the general teaching, which I had forgotten from film days.

There is always something to learn, or relearn, if one looks behind the surface of a Lens.

Seems that Zeiss is proposing again the old lesson with the new Zeiss 35/2.8 for Sony.

Yes, I can't afford it but I am the proud owner of the 19/2.8 Sigma for m4/3, an excellent lens according to Mr. Cicala.

Do you mind if I give more credit to Lensrentals than vulgar opinion?
