You forgot the Handevision Ibelux 40/0.85 ? Shame on you !

Sorry not to know extensively the M43 lineup. In fact I was mainly thinking of native AF lenses. Because if you come to manual ones, then you'll find much faster than f/1.8 FF lenses as well.

I think I am missing your point here. What is much faster than f/1.8 FF lenses?

I was actually thinking of lenses like the Pana 25/1.4 which is 1 stop behind a Sony FE 55/1.8.

Yes, it is 50/2.8 equivalent. An Ok to have, but nothing to give you an edge when it comes to DoF and light. And stopped down to f/2.8 fast FF lenses do usually produce better results, than a wide open on a smaller formats equivalents.


Personally, I don't need "extreme" aperture and what M43 has to offer is more than enough to my needs. I can understand that people may have more specific needs and I don't blame them going to expensive and bulky FF, but I'm afraid that many could actually live with smaller sensors.

Very true.
