Photo_AK: Anybody seen any MTF charts from the new lenses ...?

It's bigger than 105/1.4E NIKKOR ... and I'm pretty much sure it's also gonna be quite heavier ...

Sean65: I suspect this might be offered with the M1 ii body when released. Nice and compact for a 24-200mm f4

I'm talking about DOF, not speed, so I'll say it again; this is a (roughly) 24-200/8 equivalent lens.

Yup, you're spot on ...

It's a 24-200mm f/8 equivalent lens, really ... at least speaking in comparable mm and DOF terms.

sknai16: Is anyone seeing that the MFT company that promised smaller cheaper and just as good components now is supplying more expensive lenses than most anyone in the market? Go figure. I'm back with Nikon.

Tamron 28-300 takes 4 mm on the wide end and gives 100 mm more on the tele end; is a full frame compatible lens, weighs less, is smaller, cheaper, takes smaller filters and offers lesser DOF - all while being equaly "fast" or "faster" in the 28-200 mm range.

TyphoonTW: Two days before the Nikon 105 f1.4 is available? That's such a humongous middle finger from Tamron to Nikon.
I wouldn't like to be the guy who works at Amazon/B&H/Adorama and has to take care of cancelled preorders.

Cancelling orders based on patents, that may never come to life?

In reply to:

Chaitanya S: I hope this doesnt turn out like the 58mm G lens, grossly overpriced. Else its good to see portrait shooters getting a fast lens they have been asking for.

58G is cheap for what it offers. You just don't see it.

Stephan Def: So what does this lens do that other 50mm 1.4 lenses won't? (Sigma Art 750€, Nikon 50mm 1.4 for 300€, I think that list could go on for a long time).

I didn't even see a dof scale on this Zeiss lens. It also seems like OIS is needed on new lenses at current pixel rates, it does not matter if some Sony bodys have IBIS a lens at this price point should have that option anyway.

@villagranvicent LOYAL to Sony? W.T.F.? I'm loyal to photography, not Sony, or Nikon or any other manufacturer. Boy are you shallow ...

@villagranvicent That' what you said, not me. Congrats to your sick mind for coming up with that conclusion based on what I wrote ...

This lens cleary follows similar image-rendering philosophies as Nikon's 58/1.4G NIKKOR ... superb out-of-focus (bokeh) rendering and minimum comma ... It does (will) not have much in common with Sigma's 50/1.5 A, and even mentioning 50/1.4G NIKKOR next to it is basically an insult ...

Zeiss Batis Sonnar 85mm 1.8 T* doesn't have a vibration reduction capabilities. It's as simple as that.

CosminMunteanu: Uhh, nice. As expected, to me it would be the best tool. Combined with (now, quite old) 17-55mm Nikkor (maybe with the sb910 too) makes one hell of a combo ;-)

I'd say the best standard Zoom NIKKOR lens for D500 is the new VR 16-80/2.8-4E ...

Compared to 17-55/2.8 it's a 16-55/2.8-3.5 lens with a 55-80/3.5-4 extension ... + VR ;)

Edymagno: Near perfect specs. But the lack of built-in flash ruined it completely for me.

No Memory Stick™ card slot ... totally ruined it for me.

In reply to:

The Rale: I apologize for my ignorance but I am struggling with application of whole ISO-invariance thing. Since shooting at e.g. ISO100+5stops is "almost" as good as ISO3200, why not just shoot ISO3200? Can somebody give me real life example where this would be beneficial?

To preserve the highlights; you underexpose while shooting and then lift the shadows in post.

In reply to:

Jefftan: 14mm F2.8 can use lens filter or not?
It seem to have a build in lens hood that would stop the use of filter
anyone know?
Thanks

Oh, c'mon ... IT WILL NOT ACCEPT FILTERS.
Wanna bet?
