In reply to:

princecody: Does this camera have an automatic panoramic mode?

Not mentioned anywhere in reviews....
Fuji recommand to use higher speeds in order to,prevent'blurriness due to the high sensor resolution
Reason why I would prefer smaller bodies with excellent IBIS like the Sony a7rII or even the omd em1 II

Brad Trent: I honestly fail to see the point of a post like this. These sample photos tell me nothing. Zero. But fan boys wanna see samples, so, samples they will get! Until I get a side-by-side comparison with other medium format digital backs/cameras, this is just filler.

Patience is wiseman's virtue.
Brad Trent : if you have the money, rush to your dealer, try it and buy it or,not.
If you don't have the money to buy it, why being in a hurry ?

LFPCPH: Does it come with a powerfull computer with a fantastic screen to see the pictures on ?

This is definitely not medium format. This is à just a little bigger format than full frame but has nothing to,do with former 6x6 , 6x7 or 6x9.
At the argentic time, pictures taken by 35 mm leicaflex were better than pictures taken by the Pentax 645 film,camera.....
even when the 645 d came out, it was difficult to tell a difference with the shots taken with the d800. I would be curious to see a comparison between the canon SR , the Sony 42 mgp cameras and this Fuji....
I know someone who will make that , probably Steve Huff but you will also experience a painful reality : he is a so so photographer....

CeleryBeats: Guys c'mon. A little effort in trying to put together some decently composed images that tell the story and significance of why and to whom medium format is relevant or why it is artistically a very high quality tool.

Not trying to be insulting here. But a little bit more effort could have been done here. Why not ask a qualified (medium format) photographer to do some shots for you? Would give a much better image for this camera and website overall. Wich is still the most popular in the world i would imagine.

Picture 33 tells me.already enough about what I need to know now for such a new product. Sensible people really wanting to buy it, will try it at their retailer when fuji will,organise fuji days. Keep cool man....

LFPCPH: Is it just me or is "Fujifilm" a silly name for a manufactorer of digital cameraes ? What happend to "Fujica" ?

Fuji in Japan applies to many other products which have not anything in common with digital cameras : photocopiers etc.
Fujifilm is the registered brandname for the photographic branch.

rev32: Hope Hasse gets product out soon....

Not sure because hasselblad has got lenses with central shutter...

Tim Gander: Somebody's twigged that the Super Takumar look and feel is very desirable right now.

Non genuine lenses - except maybe the newest designs - are far from,being good on A7 series....
I will never understand why people are buying 2500 usd modern bodies to put old manual lenses on them. with 24 Mfp sensors, you need excellent lenses not unadapted vintage film,lenses....

Carerra: Why no Nikon mount anyone know?

Canon won't go into mirrorrless untill Sony or other mirrorrless weaken their dslr sales. This is not for tomorrow....

Starflash127: Well, 15 years ago I would be having G.A.S. pains over some of these monsters. I shrunk 25mm in height since the turn of the century. Shrunk my camera equipment to micro 4/3rds - what a relief!!

You have to,print at more than 30 inches to see any difference between a FF sensor and a m4/3 one working at base isos.

Wilight: I thought that Sigma were the only one to bring a great surprise at CP+ 2017 (the 14mm 1.8).. Until I saw Voigtlander!! OMG! Not only they accepted the suggestion I made by e-mail, changing the 65mm APO exterior design, but they alse brought the best surprise for me! A lens with my favorite focal lengh, a (very) "fast" aperture and a reasonable size (which would hardly be possible if it was an AF lens): the new Nokton 40mm f/1.2! I think it will take some months before they go to the stores, but anyway I'm very excited!

Maybe you was one of the 5000 persons who asked the same... lucky man 😀

havoc315: I'd be excited about the 14/1.8 but I can't imagine wanting to carry around a limited use wide angle prime that is heavier than the 100-400. I'm most likely to shoot ultrawide with travel, and it's just too heavy for a travel bag. It's really a shame.
I currently use the Samyang 14mm.
I'd love to find an ultrawide with autofocus, that's not super heavy and under $1,000. The f1.8 is nice but not really critical as it would primarily be a landscape lens for me. I may ultimately try to new Venus Laowa or Irix, just wish there was another option with AF. (Luckily MF is pretty easy with such wide lenses).

Two solutions :
1. Small olympus body with 9-18 mm
2. Small fuji body (Xe or xm) with 10-24 mm

Flashback: If you have a minute Sigma, could you knock up some E-mount versions?
Don't bother with the stabilisation, if that helps!

There are NO good lenses for the Sony apsc Mirrorrless bodies. Everyone knows that. The 6300/6500 are excellent bodies but lenses are really really bad otherwise it is a long time I would have bought some.

Sacher Khoudari: When is Sigma going to bring out lenses for Fuji's X-Mount? I'd be glad to have the 18-35/1.8 for my Fuji!

If you want good glass on your Fuji, buy fuji lenses. If you want sigma, resell your Fuji body and buy a heavy Canon or nikon, otherwise you will have an unbalanced system which will leave you unsatisfied, I guess because if you bought Fuji bodies, it is mainly for the small weight.

Nikonsyncro: One of the reasons I don't own any Sigma lenses.
The Zoom turns in the opposite direction.
When working under pressure and things must happen there is no time to think of the lens mounted and the direction you must turn the zoom ring. It must just happen.
Nikon user. But I am deffnately going to try the 135mm

This is not a problem anyway because these do not exist in K mount

Kevin DiOssi: When did photographers get so dainty? I can't believe how many people complain about the size and weight of lense like this, which were designed for holding nothing back in the department of image quality. Comparing them to a Zeiss, which is only manual focus, these lenses are comparable in size and they are autofocus.

If you're a serious pro, there's probably a good chance you own a 70-200 f/2.8 lens. This lens is smaller and lighter than those lenses...so stop. Haha

This has nothing to do with quality but with marketing.
It is much easier to make a very good f2.8 lens than a f1.8 but no one would have spoken about those.....

In reply to:

David Bo: Would you be kind to ask Sigma when we get some of the new lenses including these 4 for Sony A-mount?

They are really wanted!!

Never is the answer. If they do not do it for,pentax why should they invest in a such small market as Sony A mount and have money losts ?

sh10453: Hats off to Sigma's engineers. They have been launching some good stuff.
For those complaining of lugging heavy weight gear, just use your phone.

With that kind of lapidary thinking, I understand why people are throwing away their bulky dslr and buying mirrorrless. There is plenty room between "big Berthas" lenses and cell,phones. We experience a paradox : everyone wants small things and some.manufacturers are producing big, intrusive, heavy stuff with more than 1100/1200 grams lense. I do not understand this. Why not making a small 14 mm with normal front element that can accept normal filters ? What's the point of having a super heavy 135 lens WITHOUT stabilization instead of an excellent f2,8 with stabilization which will always give you much sharper pictures. All this quest for the the ultimate f1.8 or 1.2 is completely irrational

photoOregon: Too bad they (Sigma) doesn't care about Sony's A-mount cameras any more. I would have loved to try the new Art lenses.

As already said : too small market shares. No commercial interest for sigma.

Boeing skipper: It's a great time to be a photographer. So many great players, so many lenses to choose from.

Just imagine a 14mm f1.8 full frame lens a couple years ago, people would have said "stop dreaming, that will never happen". And yet here it is.
With a bit of luck, it will be cheaper than Canon's 14mm f2.8 L while being more than twice as fast.

More choice is never a bad thing, there was a massive price drop on 3 Zeiss lenses following Sigma's announcement ($400, $623 and $951 off on the 18/3.5, the 15/2.8 and the 135/2).

Price drop ? Where ? In Europe we have those "New" prices for years. Since it is out, the 15 mm has always cost about 2000 euros.

In reply to:

TheWhiteDog: I love how people think these "Art" lenses are a blow to Canon and Nikon, I think the opposite, Canon and Nikon love this. Think about it, these are highly desirable lenses that get great press and many want them. Very often photographer's choice of a camera is based on lenses available for it. So you want the Sigma "Art" lenses, well the bodies they are made for are Canon's and Nikon' s( most people really don't want to use adapters)! I know 3 people who bought D7200s and a D500 just so they could use the 18-35mm f1.8. So Sigma is doing Nikon and Canon a huge favor and helping them maintain their market positions. Ricoh should subsidize Sigma to produce these lenses in K mount. For the K1 that would increase its sales dramatically. So, in other words, dont feel sorry for Canon and Nikon, this is a much needed boost for sales of their camera bodies and along the way, said buyers will end up buying some Canon/Nikon lenses too.

Sigma is not interested in loosing money, so they will not manufacture K mount sigma lenses.... zeiss knows that as well.
