Looks pretty blah to me at least adapted to E-mount, Loxia and Batis are where it's at. I'm sure they are great for DSLR users.

The Milvus 50 1.4 is an 875G expensive "legacy" lens basically. No exif, no auto-focus magnification.

Or you could have a Loxia 50 that's 320G, does have all that and is a lot cheaper

$949 vs $1199 for a full extra stop is not a bad deal at all if you need the extra speed.

True but you lose the EXIF, auto-focus magnification and a few other features that are worth forking over the $949 for the Loxia in the first place

It's also heavier than the FE70-200 F4, which just seems crazy to me
