GM 135 f/1.8 to be announced soon !! (take my money - please!) ;-)


My wishlist for this lens:

  • below 2.5 k USD
  • below 1 kg weight
  • aperture ring
  • AF/MF button
  • focus limiter
  • compatible to the 1.4x extender
  • outstanding optical performance
  • outstanding bokeh
  • relatively compact - less front heavy than the Sigma
  • fast and reliable AF
  • similar performance compare to the outstanding GM 85

I've compiled a comparison of the existing f/1.8 lenses and normalized the front lens diameter

from what I can draw from this comparison is a relatively compact and less complex lens design with lower lens count than the contenders  thus it should be a bit lighter - well - theoretically - can't wait to see the real thing - the lens I've been waiting for the past years.

Interesting times!!
