matthew saville: Remember that classic Distagon 21mm f/2.8? Now remember the older 21mm f/2.8 Distagon that people said was even sharper? Oh well. Curvy lenses are sexy now. Can't blame 'em.

Nothing beats the Loxia 21 :)

Busy and nervous rendering....also noisy at base ISO.

Sunshine7913: People. You are comparing with wrong lenses. 200mm F2.8 in m43 is 400mm in FF. The light gathering doesn't even do anything but DOF. F2.8 is F2.8. All super telephoto lenses are super expansive even at F4. 400mm F4 from Canon cost $7000. $3000 for 400mm F4 is much cheaper.

And how much light does this lens gathers? Also how much light is projected onto a m43 sensor?

Paul Amyes: M4/3 is getting very porky. The Sony A7r ii is a little lighter (35g to be precise) and the Canon 6d mk ii is only 100g heavier. Then there is the price, at approx $2400 AUD that is well into full frame territory.

I expect $2699 AUD rrp.

The Canon 400 5.6 weights the same, and it's a third of the price lolol

Arizona Sunset: Mmmmm these are hot. I'll take the new 17, new 45, and 300 for Christmas, please.

@SylvainP Just answer this - althought the aperture value, shutter speed and ISO value are equal ARE THE RESULTING PICTURES SAME?

fyi f1.2 lens on m43 =/= f1.2 lens on ff. Night and day difference.

@ SylvainP - "If they where for ff they would be twice the size, twice the weight, the price etc."

An equivalent ff lens will be more like half the size, weight and price of this POS.

Get your facts right.

JEROME NOLAS: Great for bokeh lovers, but not for me...

If you really are a bokeh lovers you won't settle for f2.4 ff equivalent.

NemanRa: "Image processed to taste"
It is very far from the taste. It looks fake and artificial... Original file with deep shadows looks much better. highlights-100 shadows+100 trend needs to stop.

I totally disagree.

The original can't see a thing and would go straight to the bin.

This processed shot imo can be pushed and go way beyond considering this camera's ability.

The sample image should showcase the camera's ability, and the processing here completely failed.

Personally I would push this file much much harder to get that surreal look.

pmobil: Is Fuji gone completly nuts?
This lens is MUCH too expensive.
Coming from Canon a 100mm L IS still sits in my desktop (for sale).
This lens is nearly 500€ less (in Germany), lighter, weather sealed and for full frame cameras.
What in the world are they thinking?
I really wanted to buy this lens, because its a 1:1 macro.
But not at this price.
Fuji, check your prices! They have to be realistic.

These apsc and smaller (Yes that's you Olympus) systems are getting bigger, heavier and more expensive.

FF system is getting more and more enticing, you are actually getting more bang for your buck.

Adam Sharp: Lovely lens . But Fuji prices now pushing people away including myself . I'm sure it will be great .

Seriously you can buy an A7II + FE90 macro (one of the sharpest lens ever tested by DXO btw) for less money, weight and size.

Go figure.

In reply to:

panther fan: Any word on weight? Did they leave it out because it's heavy?
The Sony 90mm F2.8 Macro OSS is probably the sharpest and best macro lens out there. But it's gigantic. Hope this new Fuji lens is smaller and lighter, while maintaining some of that awesomeness.
Edit: just found out it's 750g and larger than the Fuji 90mm F2 :/

Seriously DPR is this meant to be a sick joke? Or are you trying to sabotage Nikon on purpose?

chshooter: Again Sony sells their best Sensor rather than use it themselves. The d850 finally kills the Sony a99II as the best combination of speed and resolution without the limitations of the flawed SLT design.
That shows that Sony have abandoned their own product in favour of supplying the competition

Meh, just wait for A7RII with 60-70mp latest gen of Sony sensor :)

Village9991: what if this kind of test is not correct? Sensors have more information in the highlight are than in the dark one so you can get better (much better) images DARKENING digital images instead of LIGHTENING. so exposing to the right let you obtaing much better images. It would be interesting (for me instead) this kind of test.


Can you try pulling back the details on the white pole from the right image in 001.jpg?

I bet you can't because the pole is blown, whereas the left image in 001.jpg has tons of details albeit underexposed.

The reason why lightening the first image is bad in your example is because Canon has bad DR, with Sony sensor pushing the shadows receives almost zero penalty at base ISO.

And that's exactly the whole point of this DPR article.

Congrats! You've just proven the point why wide DR is beneficial with your example :)

(unknown member): This is not a this-or-that-brand-is-better comment.

"I could have achieved just as good a result from a contemporary APS-C camera" - Most readers could have achieved a much better result using a ten-year-old APS-C camera.

It's a bit disingenuous to deliberately (and massively) under-expose a "real world" sample image, and then complain about the noise produced by trying to repair the damage in post. The implication is that this camera can't produce good results under these lighting conditions, which is absolutely not the case, you just have to expose properly - it's not rocket science. We are photographers, not engineers.

If you want to give us an accurate indication of DR, then just post some correctly-exposed images of a Stouffer wedge at various ISO settings. That would be much more objective and accurate information.

Toni Salmonelli - Artificial? Sounds like someone who has been stuck with a low DR camera for far too long.

Vignes: It’s product tier. The 6D2 is a low-end FF body. It’s pricey now but the price will eventually drop. Same tier as D610 and the newer A7II. D610 came after 6D but didn’t have GPS/Wi-Fi. The A7II has IBIS, 1/8K MS, better low ISO DR but only does 5fps MS, has no 4K Video, no GPS, no BT no full articulating display, poor battery, does not have the DPAF, touch focus, etc. For a DSLR, the 6D2 has better direct EVF/LCD interaction and interface than A7II. You’d expect MILC which is supposed to be the future like A7II to do better on direct LCD interface. The A7II is made in Thailand. There is going to be higher cost making stuff in Japan. Check D5 price against 1D. The D750 price is competitive but by the time it’s new successor comes, 6D2 price would have adjusted. So will the DR performance in low ISO itself influence this camera sell for the masses? it's a choice, go for Nikon/Sony low end FF for better low ISO DR or 6D2 if other features matter. No choice for 4K video low end FF body.

Vignes, my comments are to remind and hopefully avoid people from bending over and taking it from Canon. They don't deserve anybody's money the way how they treat their loyal customer.
