[snip] when Olympus will go FF. Never going to happen

Well, my contention is that it's better go FF35, if one needs more than 16 Mpx. Sony demonstrated it. There is no reason why Oympus of Fuji not to do the same, instead of pushing to extremes a cropped sensor and fail, like it happened to Sony before their A model.

Sony has a FF Zeiss 35/2.8 which actually costs like the Oly 17/1.7 but can meet a resolution of 36Mpx.

The advantage seems clear enough.


Weight, size, cost, point beyond bragging?
Just checking, you mean THIS lens?
If so, almost TWO stops Vignetting wide open and still ONE stop at f5.6.
Surely that's a joke, and it can't even outresolve the Zuiko 17mm/f1.8 .
It DOES cost nearly double though.
There ARE some good lenses in the lineup, that isn't one of them, but then, value was never a SONY lens strong point.
OH ... this is  FULL frame , 35mm is full MARKETING frame.
Another misconception" four thirds does not use "CROP sensors" they are designed that size.  FMF was adapted from 35mm miniature format.

Well designed gear performs better for longer than well marketed gear.
Odd that people complain a lens is not sharp enough,
and then proceed to make pics where 95% is OOF ..

How DO OMDs cope with dim-light action and smoke?
