RedWattlebird: If I can't say "Computer, edit all photos in 'new folder' and send to client", while I go for a beer I'm uninterested.

Why wouldn't you want the computer to fetch you a beer?

Why sue for billions when you can sue for..... TRILLIONS?

On article Hawks Factory announces new 35mm F2 in M-mount (70 comments in total)

I thought a used ZM Biogon 35/2 in good condition can be had for about "only" $600.

Theelderkeynes: Should not DPreview be offering a value for money comparison? Given the high UK prices for this and competitor phones a more relevant to the consumer price and feature analysis would have been helpful. Perhaps consideration could be given...?

It's a Project Fi compliant phone, that where its value is.

scottcraig: I've generally stuck to extension tubes primarily due to the cost of Cannon Macro lens. However given the performance and price of this lens I may just make an exception.

Vivitar Series 1 90/2.5 was a Tokina.

This thing is not that much cheaper than 100/2.8 L

Suave: I am kind of interested in supplementing my kit with a small Sony but I am sort of waiting for the system to mature enough to get to at least 2 year update cycle before I plop 2k on a basic set up.

Sure, but I don't want to invest in system where innovations are doled out piecemeal and a new model will superseed my camera within a year. Not at this price point.

Contra Mundum: Looks like a good small camera. Now, Sony, put an FF sensor inside and it will be a killer in compact camera segment.

Not goona be that compact with a FF lens on.

That's what Manfrotto turned Kata into? This brown-gray abomination?

Have you seen the crazy photographer Rosanna Arquette played in Roadies? Her.

Nobby2016: good..... adobe needs to lose it´s market position some day.

If they become worried they'll just kill it, as they killed Macromedia, Aldus and countless other companies.

Damn, Apple, I thought lightning cables that wear out in a year make you enough money.

I wonder if a touch bar is even seedier than a nudie bar.

Chris Yates: Sigma is the new Zeiss in terms of pricing.

Why on Earth would you say something like this? Do you have a slightest idea what Zeiss lens like that costs?

I wish Google Photos had a desktop program which would allow you to sort, edit and tag photos, as well as sync your local and online photos. Oh, wait...

Suave: Good news for Sony users. They've waited long enough.

You are nitpicking. This lens is aimed squarely at FF E-mount camera owners, nobody else. And Sony had little to with A-mount development, it was all Minolta.
