On article Samyang teases 'summer blockbuster' lens announcements (123 comments in total)

Sony FE lenses cost an arm and leg. It is a no brainier that SamYang will target Sony mount first.

Did Sony know that they still don't have a 135mm prime?

Shifter: After so many years of existence, I'd think Manfrotto could come up with a quickie mono-pod that turns into a tri-pod quickly.

Or a pair of hiking poles

This must be one of the greatest shame to Canon that people have to buy adapter to put Canon lenses onto other company camera.

Shame shame shame.

ttran88: Don't worry guys Canon 5DS/R , M3 and M10 will pull cannon out of the slumps. Oh and don't forget the XC10, which was said to be very important. 4th quarter will be stellar.

yeah right. Did you own one of them?

Joed700: This is definitely a beauty. The silver version looks even more classic, just like a Leica lens. However, the price is on the high side because the DOF is at around f/3 to a FF 35mm equivalent. Not the best for isolating your subject. WR is absolutely a plus. Couple with the XT-1 and you are ready to conquer any unexpected conditions...

DOE does not change in any format, technically yes.
But, let see if you shoot a portrait. With a small sensor, you have to move out further away from your model.
Longer distance = wider DOF.
Hope you got it.

A paid $400 for a mint XF 35/1.4. So this lens is not great of a deal..

nofumble: Another reason to buy Sony A7RII.

A7Ii offers IBIS + MF assist. All you need is a good glass and this one may be it.

JapanAntoine: Quite impressive specs, indeed! And very appealing.
Now, before I jump and sell my house to buy this beast, I'd like to check what Fuji has up their sleeve for the X-Pro2 (due this fall)...

I was always pretty annoyed by Sony's unique habit of releasing different models in Japan and overseas, meaning I can't have both JP and EN menus on the camera and unfortunately they seem to continue doing this (not that it would be a complete deal breaker though).

And I must admit I love the controls on the Fuji: this idea of having aperture and shutter speed in direct access through dedicated dials and rings is just a blessing.
And the Fujinon glass, mama mia, versus Zeiss... tough choice!!!

I'll have to rent both for a week and figure out on the field.

Same old X-trans sensor has been used on X-Pro1, XE1,XE2,XT1,XT10. It has been recycled so many times that the color has fade away.

Sony is cleaning the Canikon clock.

DVT80111: Sorry for my ignorant. How does it work at slow speed? Do I have to wait for the camera to finish 4 pictures? What if the object is moving? So will I get a noiseless picture, but blurry image?

Samsung has started producing stacked memory using TSV. It is coming. They may pull it in to stay ahead of the competition. Sony may do same. For small sensor farms like Cannon, this technology will break their business be sure TSV equipment are not cheap.
