Or they introduce an e-mount camera on the side. I think many people would like a Pentax designed mirrorless.

BrentSchumer: Kind of a joke at $1,300. You can pick up the Sigma 100-400mm for less.

Completely different form factor though. Have you held the Sigma yet, it’s noticeably larger. And for some, the 70mm might be more appealing than the 400. Especially with higher res sensors.

Not a fan of these jpegs, very harsh and oversharpened. Not impressed by the processing even at low ISO.

brownie314: I am not sure sample galleries really have a lot of value any more. For smart phones - sure - there are real IQ differences. But if you are testing a body (not a lens) all modern bodies have extremely high IQ and galleries will not show a real difference. AF tests - those are more useful.

I disagree, this gallery tells me loads about Canon’s jpg engine. Conclusion: I don’t like it at all. Very harsh and oversharpened.

dlb41: Picture no 4. Was there a fire?

Pete, I recommend downloading raw files and actually working on the files instead of going on internet commentary ;)

Only as a supplementary camera.

EXkurogane: That f2.8 is kind of bs, borderline a false specification. You only get f2.8 at 28mm. The moment you touch that zoom ring, you go down to only 30 or 31mm, it already drops to f3.2. That's why the lens is so small. Image IQ is also kind of meh but hey it's a super zoom I suppose.

But the facts is that at 28mm it‘s still F/2.8, so what’s the problem.

Digital (35mm mirrorless cameras) for studio, macro and video.
Film (135, 120, LF) for everything else.

That’s how I use the two mediums. Film is more personal, so holidays and daily documentary photography is all shot on emulsion. When I need detailed and flexible results, I’ll grab my mirrorless cameras.

nerd2: Film is outdated in every way and now only for hipsters.

*sigh* trolling sure is an artform.

That is such a cool lens-design. I’m glad there are craftsmen out there, bringing newLy exciting and even slightly strange things to the table. Bravo!

For a photographer to lose the function of an eye... that’s devastating. I hope for her recovery to go well; both personally and career-wise.

Perhaps Tamron’s Mirrorless counterpart to their old 28-300?

Astrotripper: 16-200mm for APS-C

They specifically mention ‘FE’, so it won’t have an APSC image circle.

I’m not impressed by the GFX zooms.

hfolkertsma: Now release one with better coatings to reduce lensflare all together.

“ This lens is clearly for another audience than the one you belong to.”

I kind of acknowledged that in my opening comment, didn’t I?

Look up films that were shot in CinemaScope, lensflare isn’t a necessary nor traditional characteristic for anamorphic filmmaking. It’s only been a stylistic choice since relatively recently, mainly in sci-fi and action flicks.

And I don’t agree with JJ Abrams...

fieldray: My first Nikon was a Nikkormat FTn in 1969. I photographed the Sapporo Olympics with that and a Nikon F in 1972 - manual focus, manual match needle exposure, manual film advance, high ISO (then ASA) of 400. Photographing the bobsleds, I would hear them whoosh around a turn above me, count to three, and fire the shutter, because they were going too fast to react to visually when you could finally see them! I got many wonderful photos with these cameras, and was really happy with them. I had no expectation of auto focus, auto exposure, auto advance, ISO 25,000, instant review, lenses so well corrected that you expect corner to corner sharpness used wide open! One word of caution based on personal experience - if your camera is sitting on the shelf for an extended period of time, take the batteries out. Eventually they can sometimes leak and ruin a great camera!

Mercury batteries are a problem, they’re not allowed to be sold in the EU anymore. For good reason, btw.

You can replace them with other batteries, but the voltage is slightly off. Usually this only affects light metering.

hfolkertsma: Atleast they listened to the main critisism of the DJI: too narrow FOV optic.

JND, who said anything about fisheyes?

The target audience for these products want a wider FOV than 26mm. Like someone else said, around 20mm rectilinear is preferred by most users.
