The general public. YES!

Hauwei should be banned from US and European markets with there communications equipment. No exceptions. They are NOT to be trusted. The Chinese and their government "can" casually lie about any and everything, including infiltrating the US infrastructure.
It is not all companies...but the Chinese Government is NOT to be trusted.

lehill: Photo #2 - "Bringing the TC into the optical path..."

How do these lenses with built-in TCs implement this? Do they actually slide/swing additional lens(es) into position?

Olympus needs to cut this lens in half so we can see how it's done.

yes...I believe that is what happens....Canon has at least one of these, too....

All the anger and nonsense below aside....I would LOVE to slap that lens on my EM1 II, and have a go at it! I would be tickled with the image quality and the files I bet!!!!!

jwilliams: Why do people who obviously do not understand the basics of photography attack the author of the article? Are you offended by the facts about your m43 equipment?

I see the author is/was a scientist. As such he deals in facts and I am sure has the technical knowledge to tell people how lenses relate in different formats or as it is commonly called 'equivalence'.

I'm an engineer by trade and also shoot m43 along with other camera formats. I understand the technical aspects of equivalence. It really is simple stuff. Second grade math is all that is needed to understand it. You do have to concentrate on facts and not incorrect beliefs. Science not religion.

I have zero problem with stating solid facts about how my m43 gear relates to other formats. Apparently some just have such a poor technical knowledge that they cannot understand the facts that have been explained so clearly by more than one article one this site. That, or they treat camera formats like religion.

Religion is tainted facts. Take the Catholic religion for instance.... You do not want that debate, do you?
You got jwillams point. I think that he makes a good one.

Olympus would have done better to put the port back for the VF insread of making it blue. I did buy a blue shirt this week, though.

mosc: If there was any reason to buy an 85mm f1.2 Canon, it's also about to die.

I have one and love it..even on a modern FF 5DIV. Super lens...just slow to focus.

Zdman: I really thought DPreview had turned a new leaf a month or so ago. I was inspired to read there was someone new at the helm and was looking forward to some balanced informative articles again. This is the third click bait article in less that a week with skewed playing field with much of the background detail obscured or misrepresented. One can only think the intention of this article is to start a flame war. Dpreview is proving to be quite the troll.

...but here you are, reading and complaining, AGAIN....

John S.: Tried out this lens in a local shop, seems nice, sharp and nice bokeh but it is HUGE!!!!! Would never buy it with so many other similar focal lengths that are half the size and weight! Not sure what Sigma was thinking with this one, it must have been designed for APS C or Full Frame with M4/3 being an afterthought! was designed for APS-C.

Link | Posted on Jan 21, 2018 at 14:16 UTC

Olympus body owner here. For its massive size and performance the Sigma makes no sense "to me" even at this price point. I am keeping my wonderfully petite 15mm P/L and Oly 17mm f/1.8 for my smaller bodies. I just steppped up and bought the 17mm Pro for My E-M1 for the fast focus, excellent weather sealing, fast f/1.2 aperture, snap manual focus ring and superior IQ (Maybe stacking capabilities, too?). If I am going to have a 17mm prime that large in this format...I want it all. It is worth the cost. "To me."
(Did I forget "The feather Bokeh" LOL!). 😬

Why would a Leica -user want a budget lens? That is hysterical!!!!

A Girard: I have some lenses that produce lovely bokeh but I think some people lay it on a little thick, sometimes removing the context of the subject matter. Sometimes I see so much bokeh it in itself is distracting.

You are clearly in deep denial. :-)

What if one hasn't used any of these lenses, but wants to see what people think of them AFTER they've used them?

Well...I own 2 of them...and will have three as soon as one ships in the beginning of January. Exciting times to be a photographer! πŸ˜¬πŸŽΆπŸ’©
