Hunter_C: To me, a compact camera without zoom/macro is a piece of junk......

And to me, a sports car without a towing winch is a piece of junk...

SETI: Really great news! Thanks DPReview.

I'd direct my thanks to those who made 3.0 come true (with no monetary compensation).

Mika Y.: Even though I mostly use RawTherapee, I'll give the new version a go, especially as I'm still on vacation for a week and should have some time to play with it. I find both DT and RT capable enough for my needs, but generally just like the RT user interface somewhat more. But that's highly personal, I'm sure many feel the other way.

Better UI in RT, for sure. But, with no local adjustments it's seems pretty meaningless to me.

High bar? Am I the only one that thinks it looks crap? iPhone 11 still can't handle hair. Guess what, a lot of humans have hair. Great example from this very article: https://www.dpreview.com/files/p/articles/6729175934/IMG_0041.jpeg

It's beyond me why Dpreview fails to have an actual photographer do these galleries. I'm very sorry, but these pictures are so lacking that it makes it hard to get any feeling for what this lens could do. :-/

ecka84: Not good :(. Nervous edges. Bad lens copy?

I'm confident Sigma would hand Dpreview the best copy they could ever find. So...

A Pentax Q size sensor on MF. Well, that's just great. Not.

tkbslc: Why does it cost so much to make lenses for a sensor only 1.25x larger than FF? APS-C and M4/3 lenses are like the same price and there's a bigger gap between them (1.33x)

> Why does it cost so much to make lenses for a sensor only 1.25x larger than FF?

It doesn't. They they don't have any competition, that's why. Systems that offer third party lens options will have lower prices.

Wait a minute. The sensor isn't square? Talk about _not_ honoring your heritage.

Corner performance at 1.8 is good enough for me. https://3.img-dpreview.com/files/p/sample_galleries/1004647162/3697508627.jpg

On article Sony releases long-awaited FE 35mm F1.8 lens (600 comments in total)

Have the Sonnar 2.8 and the Samyang 1.4, but this was really what I waited for. Not cheap (as always with Sony). Relatively big for being a 35mm 1.8 (as always with mirrorless/short flange distances). But, I will likely sell both of my 35mm lenses to buy this.

HowaboutRAW: What's the point, if the NR is still garbage?

I guess there are those who only ever shoot at base ISO--but that's a very small sub-set of raw shooters.

@thx1138 The ability to export a denoised DNG means it's a demosaiced Linear DNG (RGB). Not a non-destructive process.

ttran88: Sony E/FE must be selling well, it seems like theirs a new third party lenses every other week.

And still not a single 35mm f/1.8 with AF. Kind of losing hope here.

Link | Posted on May 14, 2019 at 05:48 UTC

I will repeat this until the day it happens...

Can someone make the 35mm f/1.8 with AF happen? Both Nikon and Canon quickly realized it was one of most important lenses to be released with their mirrorless offerings.

Sony, not so much...

Incredibly OT. But, can somebody please make make a 35mm f/1.8 for in FE mount *now*? Nikon got it, Canon got it. They both released 35mm f/1.8 lenses as their first lenses for their mirrorless systems.

I have the 35mm sonnar but I'm not happy with the speed. I also have the 35mm f/1.4 Samyang, but it's too big for an everyday lens.

Mogen2010: Its the 'best' RAW and JPG from an APS-C camera that really does slip into trouser pockets.

Petal: Until you try the AF... Back to the drawing board Fuji.

thx1138: Nice camera, too bad it’s the cheapest ugliest looking camera on the market. I’ve bought a $5 disposable camera from a junk shop that was more stylish than this. Ricoh too tight to spend some dollars on a design team, got the local kindergarten kids to pen it.

Just so you know Ricoh, I think it's the most beautiful camera on the market. I know it won't happen, but if there was a 35mm equiv version I'd buy it in an instant.

Same size as a Sony a7 with small 35 mm ?

But there is no f/2.0 35mm lens with AF for FE mount...

DougDolde: Why someone would buy this ungainly monster over a Leica Q2 is beyond me. I dont want or need in-camera processing

Well, the 28mm focal length (I know you can digicrop) sucks and 35mm rocks. But that's about it for me.
