90mm f/2 makes me wonder if it's going to have some decent macro ability... not 1:1 probably, but closer focusing than some of the faster telephotos out there.

Either way, it's on my watch list.

Good point!!!!!

I found that sometimes when you get a certain lens only to find out that the minimum distance is 1.2 metres (4 ft...) ... then it is really not that exciting, whereas there is one thing I really like about the 35/1.4 is the 20-something centimetres minimum distance ...

Yes, I DO understand that this is not always that easy to put into a lens design, but can be done ...

The minimum distance will - or better: COULD be a deal breaker for me!


agree 100%. 56mm f1.2 is great lens, but sometimes frustrated with close focus distance.
