I wish they had made a 20mm f/4 and 35mm f/2 to be light weight :)

If I understood correctly. Is this a technology demonstrator? Any practical use?

ms18: So this market is getting exploited now.

I shouldn't have spent this much money on Fuji because they only had lovely dedicated prime i desired

That's true. But this make me happy there are people exploiting APS-C dedicated fast primes. I wish some one made dedicated APS-C 14, 23 , 56mm fast primes so I would have bought Sony A6300 which I liked more than Fuji cameras. But the lack of fast primes on required focal length made me to buy Fuji which is not sold in my country.

airforce1: As a possible alternative shopping choice, Sigma has 2 well reviewed AF lenses for the Emount:

30mm 2.4 Emount lens for $169

Also 30mm 1.4 lens $339:

may be the difference between 1.4 and 1.2 is narrow considering this new lens isn't sharp wide open. BUT difference between f/2.8 and f/1.2 is HUGE.

F/2.8 is simply not fast for APS-C prime.

ms18: Now we have 3rd generation. this means

1) There is no point of buying APS-C canon cameras. They will never make professional lenses for it.

2) Their upcoming full frame mirror less camera is not serious unless they make it with EF mount

I don't like awkward focal lengths just because it works.

All canon care now days is wedding full frame photogrpahers who shoot with 16-35, 24-70 and 70-200. And they occasionally use primes in FF.

Canon know they are loosing market. They want to keep their wedding photographers happy atleast.

I can't carry the weight of full frame and can't afford the price. So I'm switching to Fuji. Good bye Canon

Bershatsky: I’m quite surprised by the release of this lens. I have no complaints with version II. Why not have canon update and gave us a new 50mm f/1.4L lens, or a 28mm? Why not a mirrorless 5DM?

I can’t believe they didn’t ask my opinion!

Because this is how Canon works. Never listening to customers.

In my opinion you should use same lens. If not just test the lens in a same sensor via adopters

In reply to:

Capture Lights: why copy something that's already dirt cheap?

i agree with cosinaphile below, they should release these lens in fuji or some other mount where these fast fifty are not so cheap.

I'm going to buy Fuji for its dedicated fast APS-c prime choice of lenses. I'm really not impressed by Fuji body. If Sony APS-c camera sick as a6300 had same lens line up I would go for it over Fuji. Canon users can buy dirt cheap bodies, atleast in 3rd world countries like mine. Then with little cost we can get bokeh. That's where these lenses sell well.

Cagey75: I wonder why Yongnuo continue to be so dumb? Canon users don't need this, they'd prefer to pay that bit extra for the Canon model. YN would be better to make this for mirrorless mounts, where 50mm equivalent lenses aren't so cheap already. They also shot themselves in the foot with the M43 sensor device they created, by putting a Canon mount on it. Surely that would have gone down a lot better with an M43 mount!?

Well you have no idea about 3rd world countries.

IMHO if some is one going to keep speaking there is no point of making a video.

I have bought Nokia 5, it's a best purchase I've made in my entire life. Good battery life, good price, immediate security patch update, vanilla Android, Android p promised and now Oreo 8.1. only downside is camera is not good. You know what I don't care.

In reply to:

RubberDials: So let me get this straight, 'rumors of a Canon mirrorless full-frame camera are heating up' and a couple of 'good sources' have confirmed that 'a full-frame mirrorless Canon is indeed being tested by select pros'.

But there isn't a single spec known? What kind of rumour is that?

If 'select pros' are using it then presumably it has a lens on it. So how come the mount isn't known? If it used EF mount that would be the first thing leaked. It would cause an immediate spike in lens sales.

Sorry a rumour about a camera without a single leaked spec sounds like it came straight from Canon's marketing department. An obvious attempt to pre-empt users jumping on the A7III.

Aptly written comment

The only chance of making difference is having it with EF mount so you can use huge collection of lenses. But they are also talking about cannibalizing DSLR. So they are going to make EF lenses in future without making DSLRs?

Too much confusion.

Because of the Flange focal distance any way the lens will be long
