I've backpacked over a thousand miles with a equiv 50mm and 18mm prime. It definitely changed how I see the the way I wanted to photograph my surroundings. Honestly if you've never forced yourself to take photos using prime lens day after day after day, you won't understand it.

Jacques Cornell: My "Best Lens" nomination is Samsung's 135/1.8. It's excellent in every regard, and the BF sale prices have been "I don't need one, but it's so cheap, how could I not?"

Unfortunately I was a victim of the Amazon flash sale. $664 before taxes was really hard to pass up. lol

TN Args: The proven Samyang 75/1.8 AF lens is $299 at present.

Yes the Samyang is a fantastic lens considering it's size. Photo rendering is comparable to my Sigma 85 f1.4.

TiltShiftR: I have to keep reminding myself that these Best/Worst lists are nothing but another person's opinion - as is criticism. Taken with a grain of salt is best.

Aren't all reviews opinions by someone?

marc petzold: Good Morning,

the Z-30 critique is a bit harsh - i mean, check out that Sony ZV-E10 or how's it being called, that Kitlens is from 2012, optically a dud, named 16-50 OSS, and does have (uncorrected) distortions from out of this world...i own it since my NEX-6 from 2012...if you don't believe it, check the (old) Photozone (OpticalLimits) review, it's under designed, and corrected in-camera. The Nikon 16-50 VR Kitlens into contrast is really a sharp, pancake-esque DX zoom, hence APS-C.

Of course, the Z-30 is missing an EVF, but so does the E10 Sony. The 21 MP Sensor is really nice, it was being used into the D500, D7500 and Z-50 before - that says a lot about it's IQ and quality. I think, the Z-30 should being at least 200 bucks cheaper, for what it is - also the Sony ZV-E10...into the end, i wouldn't buy either of these, just right. E-Mount is open, but Z-Mount gets more & more 3rd party lens support, think Viltrox, Yongnuo or TTArtisan. :-)

Good Night.

The ZV-E10 wasn't released this year

leendertcv: This sensor with a 35mm f1.8 lens would be perfect on a phone.

@Nick It's a 19mm lens on a full frame ie. 35 mm equiv.

In reply to:

nitroman: If any photographer is going to take this seriously as a camera, it needs multiple lenses. Just one fixed lens is already out of date with the competition.

Why what is this competing with? Also nothing wrong with a fixed lens camera. Altho I would have wanted a more useful, at least a 28mm equiv lens.

armanius: Nice timing to overshadow the OM5 announcement!

I believe It's unfortunate timing of the OM5 announcement.

LiangMing: So at the end of this, there is no stacked sensor. I will wait for the A9 III.

A high megapixel stacked sensor would have cost higher than the a1. Why would you expect a stack sensor?

Nova Strict: Did someone even bother to test the 8 stops of IBIS? Because Sony claimed ridiculous numbers in the past and tests showed that the numbers were inflated by even 2 stops when compared to other camera systems.

Well in fairness only in lab conditions that tests can be repeatable and can be replicated and checked.

jazja: They promised 100 MP????
They were probably scared of the Canon R1 and saved 100 MP for a1 mark 2.
Nikon probably thinks the same way. That's why the Z8 will only have 45 MP.
Why am I talking about pixels? Pixels sell the cameras.

If a manufacturer has the opportunity to be the first to release a 100 mp full frame camera, they would do it. It's not because one is scared. Also A1 is about stacked, fast readout sensor.

Puppy2007: The comparison with the Tamron 28-75 doesn't make much sense. We know that the 24mm vs 28mm makes a difference in optical design resulting in bigger and more complex lens.

Well Tamron is a major third party lens in this space, and they only make a 28-75 in this popular zoom range, so of course they have to be included in the comparison.

In reply to:

Malling: Always good with options although I must admit I see incredibly little point in that range, f4.5 at 50mm makes that 50mm very limited in use. 50mm for me is in a range where I actually desire some sort of speed and separation, 4.5 for a 50mm is incredibly slow and give almost no separation unless you stand up in the subject “face”

It mean that I still would need to carry a fast 50 for that effect, therefore for me it looses almost its entire reason to be owned. I much rather then have a 100-400 that have speed gain and that has less aberration issues.

@Malling There's already a Sigma 100-400 and a Sony 100-400. I'm glad Tamron is doing something different, and more importantly an option. I don't get it when people complain about having options.
