  • Oh and again, I actually preordered the thing so I'm hardly biased against it, but you're grasping at straws so hard to hype it that it's almost embarrassing.

  • That's still nonsense, I'm sorry. Unprecedented? 0.2m is pretty standard fare for a M4/3 prime , that's a result of the format and not something groundbreaking on the part of this lens.

    I'm...

  • Btw if E mount had a lot more lenses like that 35/2.8 I'd be a lot more interested in that system (the Samyang or the CZ really, I wouldn't balk at the price of the latter after spending a few...

  • @Prognathous I'm not dead set on M4/3 above all else, I've looked at other systems and fixed focal length compacts multiple times. Thing is tho, are those cheaper options you describe still cheaper...

  • I would, not to stand there for half an hour but it's nice knowing I don't need to run for cover immediately, and Oly's sealing has a pretty well proven track record. I don't think it's at all...

  • My 7.5mm f2, 12mm f2, 20mm f1.7, 42.5mm f1.7, 12-32mm, 35-100mm (both of them), and 7.5mm f3.5 fisheye ALL disappeared from my bag as soon as I preordered the 17mm f1.2, instantly. Oh and my GM1...

  • I have/love the 20/1.7, one of my most used lenses, and I'm getting this one too... Not letting the 20/1.7 go tho, it adds up to one of the better traits of this system IMO, the ability to scale up...

  • So I went for it, had it sitting on my desk for a couple days until I got around to opening it today... The black finish looks a lot better in person, hadn't even noticed the spackle finish on the ...
  • Having used both now, I can't really say I prefer one wheel or the other, they both work fine for me. The GX850 has more tactile detents as it's turned but doesn't really feel any stiffer or less ...
  • The new Sigma 16/1.2 will be an interesting comparison and that's sealed... Isn't the Sony/CZ APS-C 24mm also weather sealed?

    Fuji's sealed equivalent is 'only' f2 but a lot of M4/3 users would...

  • So? Goes great with my PL8-18 & the other 35-100 too. ;)

  • That's interesting, even the hood design is sort of a role reversal... Early Oly premium primes (12, 75, etc.) all had that terrible (IMO) thumbscrew tightened hood design, metal might look nice...

  • I'm sorry but that's just hogwash. Even this 17/1.2's bokeh improves in some regards as it's stopped down (tho not in all senses)... Transitions might get sharper when it's stopped down (to not get...

  • " Sorry, but we cannot compare those lenses with FF ones, we don't have f3.6 equivalent primes lol. " -ZeBebito

    I actually wish we did... There's a few small f2.8 FF primes and many of them strike...

  • Huh, I didn't realize the Nocti was actually larger... That might be one of the few instances in the system where Panasonic's rough equivalent to an Oly lens is actually larger and/or one of the...

  • " Insist on using M4/3 to get this look " sounds rather condescending, even if not meant to... I'm invested in the system and happy with it for most purposes, a wide prime is literally the only...

  • " no one will get this lens beside GH4/GH5 owners. these camera floods the market share already. "

    E-M5 II & GM1 / GX850 owner here, preordered one, guess I dunno what I'm doing.

  • Goes great with my tiny 2x2" 35-100 & 42.5/1.7 tho!

  • Not sure I buy that argument, and I preordered the lens FWIW. Did Olympus prioritize bokeh to an extent without sacrificing sharpness? Sure, probably... Everything else sounds like a gross...

  • Weirdly on mobile you still get a clean full screen view of the samples.
