Nice lens for a nice system.

"Snuck into the zone".

Do Japanese authorities allow people to go there? Or were they basically trespassing?

biza43: It seems like a very good lens for portraits. Robust construction, hand made in Germany, sounds like Leica:)

Specialist lenses are always expensive.

@Seeky, all I was saying is that hand made high quality lenses made in Germany tend to be on the expensive side. Zeiss and Voigtlander lenses for M mount are actually made in Japan by Cosina, which lowers their prices a little bit. Of course mass produced plastic 85 f1.8 lenses for SLRs are a lot cheaper, but the market and end user is entirely different. I also exemplified with the Summarit 90 just for purposes of subject isolation versus f2.6, f2.4, or f2.8 aperture.

As for good portrait lenses, I already have a M Elmarit 90 f2.8 that I bought used to use on my Sony A7. This is another thing, these high quality built lenses will last for decades, contrary to the more cheaper ones.

Dear above, it seems you are good at extrapolating at your whim from what I have said. I would suggest you learn something about photography, namely:
1. Lenses hand made in Germany tend to be expensive, have you heard of Leica? Plus, they are metal built.
2. Historically, Leica's M series portrait lens has been the Elmarit 90 f2.8 lens. If you don't get subject separation with such lenses, you need to learn.
3. Present day Leica M portrait lens is the following: http://www.stevehuffphoto.com/2015/05/11/the-new-leica-90-summarit-f2-4-lens-review-on-the-m-240/
4. See enough subject separation?
5. See here to learn something about using 90mm lenses for portraiture: http://www.overgaard.dk/leica-90mm-Summarit-M-f-25.html

Have a nice day. I understand the lens is not for you, fine. Just don't go around spreading your ignorance, it is too obvious.

Amazing photographer, but most of all, a humanist. His photos portray the human element inside the big city in such an elegant way.

This a great new system, all this quality in a camera that is hardly larger than a Sony A7 or Olympus EM1.

Astrotripper: Nice, another confirmation of how good this lens is wide open. Looks like Panasonic engineers got their priorities straight when designing this one.

For equivalence trolls, show me a 24mm FF lens that is this good in the corners at f/2.8 :-)

ZEISS Batis 25 f2.0 lens.

Should be an interesting series. I can recommend the photos from George Steinmetz, he as a couple of nice books, including one over the Empty Quarter of Arabia.

Two things come out of this:
1. The high quality of the photos and portfolios submitted;
2. The ignorance, envy, and shallowness of some of the commenters.

Ok, but then the title "Technology Evangelist" would be more appropriate, I think.

On article 2016 Roundup: $1200-2000 ILCs part 1 - Crop-Sensor (180 comments in total)

I don't see the need to have two split for "interchangeable lens cameras 800-1200" and now this "crop-sensor interchangeable lens cameras 1200-2000". Cameras like the Sony A6300 and Pentax K3 (arguably some of the best choices) that were in the former round-up, would also fit nicely in this round-up.

Impressive, and very timely, given Euro 2016, Copa America, and Olympics. This lens is a mainstay for sports shooters.

Thanks for posting this news, I was not aware of it. As for some depreciative comments below, I am sure that there is a reason why such authors are not hired by Magnum, they must be really good photogs...
