Too bad that consumers are made to beta testers for those lenses.

I'm pretty happy to bet for this price range.

Somebody's paying >1000$ for a Batis that is the same reliable in the end.

So, I have, for just 315€, an amazing IQ 18mm lens, I mean, 18mm, have you already calculated its DOF?

f:2,8 .... sharp from 2m to ∞ focusing at 4m

f:5,6.... sharp from 1m to ∞ focusing at 2m

Do you think you really need AF on it? Shooting video on flying butterflies?

But if your answer is yes, go for the Batis 18.
