celipessoa1971: It is perfect for me, discrète with one 28mm général purpose.

Every smartphone in the last 6 years came with a 28mm equivalent lens or close to that.

Soo, that is it? 5-6 years of development on the large sensor GR form factor and not even another mirrorless camera in same / similar form, with a small zoom lens, or another FoV lens, or something? They were indeed breaking some serious sweat!

Frank_BR: Interesting the Nikon's paranoid concern with factory safety. I doubt that Nikon knows anything that Canon, Sony, Panasonic, Fuji, Olympus, etc., don't already know. If even a relatively small company like Sigma does reverse engineering of Nikon lenses, imagine what the other companies that have a lot more resources can do.

Nothing is paranoid about good safety standards and protocols. Good workplace safety means good business and safety for families too.

DiffractionLtd: Nice to see cameras and lenses being made in Japan. Be nice if some American high-tech like Apple could have products made in the U.S. instead of China. I guess the Japanese are more patriotic and concerned with strategic production capability than some in the U.S.

That is correct: the Japanese semiconductor and optical industry is the proof that the American hardware companies like Apple are bold-faced liars. They do not want to lose the profit margins, and they refuse to invest BACK in the country which they MILK for profits. At least the Japanese have left some sense of national dignity, which the US corporate CEOs have flushed down the tube. They pretend they are "the globalists" instead. Because it fills in their pockets.

I wonder, in such a hi-tech, zero-dust, zero-pollutant, super-clean factory, what if a worker must go to the bathroom? What are the procedures?

entoman: Horrible elliptical bokeh on the woodland scenes.

Yep. And is swirly too. Lots of swirly lemons in the bokeh.

Zvonimir Tosic: How does it compare to Leica 24mm f/1.4 Summilux?

Not at all. Good photographers who choose Leica lenses are not visual idiots. I see rendering of this new Sony lens to be ok for minimal depth of scene, but it does not pass the spatial illusion and 3D presence test.

Not even remotely; Sony's lens is not cheap for no reason. It is unable to bring that wonderful 3D presence of subjects and the sense of space that a Leica lens can.

Zvonimir Tosic: Nasty bokeh, Canon, lots of swirly lemons; colour (skintones) too could be better. Of all recent 50mm lenses, Pentax HD DFA 50/1.4 delivers overall best aesthetics of the image, and finest colours too.

Lowering the aperture does not improve Canon's lens performance. And that is the gain you pay for buying into the f1.2 – in Canon's case, you gain nothing but bigger swirly lemons and you pay double for them.

For a fact, Leica uses better grade glass. Which exponentially increase in price. Does anyone think Sigma and Leica use same grade glass? Or same coatings? Not in one million years.

Some extra sharpness, flatness, etc. is all irrelevant because I am not interested how images "look" to the computer charts, but to human eyes, at a viewing distance. Leica lens delivers superior microcontrast, tonal separation and better 3D look than both Nikon's and Canon's version of the 24/1.4.

phoenix15: This is incredible size, but little bit pricey. Just give this idea to Pentax; build fullframe mirrorless, and make the prime lenses only. The wheather shield, IBIS, pixel shift, and compact design. How hard this could be Pentax ?

How hard? 20+ million dollars hard.

What about comparison >images< between Sony, Canon, Sony and Leica iterations? Then we can tell the real value.

Exactly. That is why we have the m4/3.
Olympus 12/2 is 130g only, and Leica 12/1.4 is 330 g.

solarider: Pentax had a the great idea years ago, the all-metal 40mm f2.8 AF Limited Series lens. about $369.00
https://www.dpreview.com/products/pentax/lenses/pentax_hd_da_40_2p8_ltd

and the DA 40mm F2.8 XS Lens about $173.00 https://www.dpreview.com/products/pentax/lenses/pentax_xs_40_2

Pentax 40/2.8 SDM is the best 40mm lens, ever! The rendering and 3D pop is drop dead beautiful. However, I have not tried new Voigtlander Nocton 40/1.2, but that lens is the f/1.2 lens, and a different beast.

walker2000: This news is hurting dpreview's reputation.

No, I don't think they are accomplices. Only that some of their hirelings, that is, associates who come and go and scrape the web for "news" like these, have no idea what they are doing.
