Thanks dpreview staff, I'm surprised you had the balls to write such article (it is a compliment).

Nireas: Dear Rishi Sanyal....I have been reading dpreview for 12 years and taking photos 35 years. I respect your scientific education but I think you were carried away by numbers, bits , photons and charts. This kind of article is more appropriate for a techno-electronics site that compares electronic parts.
I feel that the passion you have for photography is for the specs and pixels. Not for the image quality and the "experience of the moment" that a photo conveys to the viewer.

This is a gear site...

Foxy2012: For a6300/6500 which would be better; the 35mm or the 40mm? I already have a 35mm 1.8 manual lens -- so maybe the 40mm?

Better for what ?
It's like asking what car is better...

People who just bought the 85mm f/1.4 for 2000 euros, thinking that this would be their last portrait lens are very happy now :D

Happy that the lens got released though.

Alex Permit: The company comment
"That's the power of Kickstarter: You're not just placing an order and waiting for a product to arrive; you're part of the highs and lows of bringing a new product to market. You're making products possible that wouldn't otherwise exist. You're helping entrepreneurs take insanely big risks to follow a vision for a product. They often succeed (Pebble, Form 1 printer, The Coolest), but sometimes, they fail."

I say, that's the PROBLEM with Kickstarter. The backers provide the money to bring new products to market. They let entrepreneurs take insanely big risks WITH THEIR money. If the product succeeds, the entrepreneurs get richer. When it fails, the backers get poorer. The backers take all the risk, the sponsors get all the reward.

@Suntan Simply because often backers lose their money, and most often backing up a project barely brings you any advantage...
The guys behind a project can simply disappear and nothing will happen to them !

Kickstarter should only allow very serious, researched and documented projects, but well... they don't care !

ovrebekk: This is a common issue for hardware projects on Kickstarter. Unless you have experience getting these types of products to market you always underestimate the cost and complexity involved.

Me and thousands of others have been scammed by "ZNAPS" a magnetic usb cable adapter, they scammed 3 millions CAD !

Anadrol: If you absolutely want the rangefinder experience sure you have to buy a Leica;
but just for image quality and easy of use, for a fraction of cost,
the Sony A7 line is much better, and it's where innovation is at each year.

Sony lenses are bigger yes, but many have excellent performance.

Sony sensors are simply the best.
Long gone are times where Leica had the only FF sensor...

Yes I did mean that Leica was the only FF mirrorless camera for quite some time.

With Sony A7RII + excellent lenses you are about at 50% of the cost of a Leica + its lenses, but you get a better sensor and autofocus.

Of course like I said previously, I understand people that buy a Leica to use a rangefinder, but that's not anymore for a better IQ like some years ago.

Platypus850: Great shot, however I'm wondering how the great depth of field here works on F5.6 ? There is no way you could achieve this with full frame let alone APS-C
unless you used focus stacking. I suppose this is one of the advantages of using a smaller sensor.

Well if the subject was at 6 feet there was 0.9 feet of DOF, which is enough to have all in focus.
At 3 feet distance there is 0.22 feet of DOF only though.

Fotodiox apparently acknowledged that they designed it in collaboration with Commlite.

I got scammed on KickStarter with ZNAPS (a 3 MILLION USD scam !!!).

So I strongly advise anyone to stop using KickStarter or Indiegogo...

chary zp: Isn't it high time Apple users told Apple what they think about this move by not buying this crippled machine? And... is this going to happen? Or are the Apple sheep really up to their reputation? Any bets?

@Henry you have all the right to love Apple, and I have all the right to hate it.
