Re: Who would buy a 27mm 1.4 or 1.2 ?


I didn't vote.  I use the 27mm now and would happily consider a slightly larger lens, but I would prefer a crackingly good  f2.  With top optics and an aperture ring.

I'll take an interest in the new 18mm and, IF I buy one, I get that it would make the 27mm FL a nicer step compared to the 23mm or 35mm.  I would consider an f1.4, but I'd skip an f1.2 - it's a speed and expense overkill for me.   I'm into landscape, nature and travel - for me cross frame sharpness, low CAs and flare resistance are my key interests.

And I'm with whoever said they'd give higher priority to a 70mm lens.  Again, for me, an f2.  A 70/1.4 would be as big as the 90/2. No thanks.

Cheers Rod
