Snapper2013: What's with all that rubber on the front end of these lenses and does it serve a purpose or is it some kind of tacky marketing gimmick?

I think it is for when you hand hold. It gives you something to grip. These lenses are hand holdable and will used that way allot. Light weight with 4-5 stops of IS will make these lenses a dream for Nikon shooters.

slippedcurve623: Now If nikon updates their 200mm f/2, the 200-400mm f/4 ii (yea the nikon 200-400 ii is not as sharp, even when compared to canon 70-200mm f/2.8 ii) as well as releasing the d900 with the a7r ii sensor, then I might jump ship from canon :-)

I'm thinking the same. I personally doubt Canon will improve there sensor's. I've stopped buying all Canon products until they get up to speed. Almost 3 years now.

Wow, and with the best sensors in the camera's.... Cannot wait to see the results.

I do not know much about these cameras. But the 800 ISO shot looks like my 7D noise. I would not buy one. Just me I guess.

Was in Mexico city 40 years ago, the catacombs were about the same. 40 years ago it was a scary place.

Nice photos.

If Panasonic would come out with a 300mm F/4 lens. I would be all over this. Great machine, but the micro 4/3 does not have the tele's I want yet.

Since M4/3 is an open system. Does that mean the AF will be just as good as the OEM's?

garyknrd: Art lens? Hummm wonder where they got that from.

Pretty much proves my case. You assumed "ART" meant Sigma. And the majority of folks do also. It also means superior in the Sigma brand.
Just saying good advertising for the masses IMO.

Cheap junk!

I am fairly new to photography ( since retirement ). I enjoy looking at the pics, but hard for me to justify the cost.
What is the difference in buying a Leica lens and putting it on your existing camera and snapping some pics?
Is there that much difference?

I tend to hold my cameras for years. I can afford it if I really wanted it. I just cannot seem to turn the corner.

I am beginning to think these are for long time pro's that gradually move into this type of shooting. Not sure.
