  • Replied in F-Stop Florentin
    About to buy the Florentin as it is light (0,5 kg, or 1 pound), zippered (I hate the flap-only), has a handle to fix it on a trolley and other features. Owning also a F-stop Shibata, I know ...
  • Absolutely correct. Please read below my additional remarks on 3.0. Best, M
  • Fw3.0 is a major backward step, performance-wise. I understand most users are "casual", so the 3.0 performance drop does not impact them nor they will even detect it. But the backpedalling is there. ...

  • Outstanding lens.
