supersargas: @DPR Is there a sample gallery coming for the 16mm?

@DuxX
It's not going to be pretty at 2.8, of course. But the only real alternatives to this lens are (were) the Leica Super-Elmar-M 18mm and the CCZ Distagon ZM 18mm, both of which only work with Leica sensors, are twice the size and are many times more expensive (with reason, of course).

There are no other super compact primes in the 16mm~18mm range currently in production, not in short or long flange mounts. It has essentially no competition.

I myself wouldn't buy it because I prefer to buy manual lenses, but I still appreciate all that. This release is very significative.

Talk about how to sell dirt to a monkey.

You all should get a room already.

Ergo607: "Despite offering a 135mm focal length, the lens is rather compact [...]"

Seems dpreview has never heard of the 46 year old SMC Pentax 135mm f/2,5: 86mm long, 68mm diameter, 500g.

Even a modern optic like 135mm f/2 is more compact and lighter while offering half a stop more light...

ProfHankHD: I've read quite a few reviews of chinese made meta lenses that break or come decentered from the factory. On korean lenses, the internals are all made of plastic, which makes me doubt a lot. Those also suffer from decentering from factory, and at least one reviewer has said that they repeatedly go out of spec.

Also worth mentioning, all those old lenses are made in Japan, and will last much more than chinese and korean optics.

Just as I was looking at the ZM lineup.

Djehuty: Gimme an autofocusing film cam in E, RF or Z mount flavor.

NoSasaeng: Maybe an automatic rangefinder?

supersargas: Another one?. How about a 28 or a 24 that works for digital?? Neither their E or VM lineup have one.

Ranger 9: Why would anyone buy that, I would ask.
Making an APS-C camera with a mount that exclusively has optics designed for 135 sounds so ridiculous.

On the plus side, it's made in Europe.

On Leica digital. Not on anything else, as far as I know.

Genuine question: Why do you want nVidia graphics?

SpeedyNeo: As far as I know this is the first time they add a film simulation through a firmware update. So Fuji, since this is doable, why on earth don't you do that on the X-series? I'd love nostalgic neg on my X-T3. Tia.

@left eye those so-called film simulations are merely look-up tables. there's nothing complex in that.

As if Adobe products were good. They are the Apple of the graphics world.
