wolfloid: Here's what Mike Johnson wrote about this rather large 35/1.4 lens:

"One thing I've noticed recently is that marketers are increasingly telling me what I'm supposed to think, which is generally a bad way to get me to think something. In this case the marketers are telling us that the lens is "remarkably compact," "lightweight and compact for excellent mobility," and "weighs only 18.5 oz (524 g)" (emphasis mine). Only? Sorry, no sale on that. Historically this is a large lens for the spec and the format and none too light. Nothing wrong with that, but please don't go all Trump on me and try to make me believe that square is round and up is down just by insisting on it over and over again."

This is right on the nail. Please DPR, stop parroting the marketing nonsense. It may be a great lens, but small and light it is not.

NIala, dont be so butt hurt because DPR dint mention Sigma 35 1.2. You already mentioned it a few times, it makes you look stupid.

MILC man: @dpr - "...twin STM focus motors, which should increase focus accuracy at close distances"

so why are both of those official nikon portrait shots focused on the eyelash/eyebrow, not the eye:

https://www.dpreview.com/sample-galleries/5802807193/nikon-z-14-24-f2-8-50mm-f1-2-official-samples/

$2100 for a lens that can't do accurate eyeaf? between that and the green fringing, i'd rather have the z50/1.8, and pocket the cost savings.

Nikon zooms is better than Sony, I dont know its their age or mount thing. However, Sony’S prime is excellent, 24, 50, 135 etc. Their 85/1.4 is a bit of a character lens like Nikon 58/1.4 a bit less corrected but soft bokeh wide open.

In reply to:

Blayse: It's a slightly smaller version of the a7iii (did anyone in the world think that was too large to begin with?), with even worse ergos and a single card slot. All for roughly the same price.

I get the desire for something small and portable, but why bother with a large sensor? People want a larger sensor for better image quality. But with this camera you are either going to attach tiny plastic lenses of marginal quality, or be lugging around a large lens on a small body. Either option makes the entire 'tiny full frame' argument moot.

If you want quality in a small package get a smaller sensor, then high quality lenses can still be portable.

Sony 55 1.8, Sony 24 1.4 and Sony 85 1.8 are a perfect fit for this camera and performs better than Fuji equjvalent. So you do have great choices besides the big lenses.

Daft Punk: Sony marketing basically saying:

"Please please please can everyone upgrade to full frame so they can take tiny pictures and share them on social media and instagram. Everyone should know they don't need full frame for such purposes , but we need to keep selling stuff to a rapidly shrinking market, so selling the con that "full frame" matters is our best shot of shifting more cameras this winter season. So buy one. Please. Please.. please..."

Same goes for Panasonic, Canon and frankly everyone else (maybe excepting Fuji...)

I would wager that 90% of the people who buy this camera simply dont need a full frame camera for what they shoot. They just "want one". Thats cool, this is a market and people are free to buy what they want. But lets not kid ourselves here..

Yeah, not everyone needs FF also not every fuji lover needs apsc, they’ll suffice with m43 or just a smartphone

SmilerGrogan: Game over. With this lens Fuji eliminates the need for so-called full-frame cameras. From now on being seen with one of those 24x36 monsters will mark you as an ignorant poser, a gullible sucker who bought the lie that bigger sensors mean better pictures.

I love olympus in its day; Olympus mju, 4/3rds E510 with 11-22!

Well is there any that betters the A9 re sensor read out? I thought so..
Both Canon and Sony has 100-400 or 100-500 lenses that you could attached TC to it. And the Pana being a 100-400 f/5.6 -f/8 so the FF lenses are faster. If you are going after compact gear, yes, I stated thtas the advantage of smaller sensor. Maybe macro too as you want more DOF

Oh save your personal insult else where, I didnt attack you personally, it really shows you are a pathetic human being

Smaller cameras? Yes.

Smaller telephoto, fast sensor read out, better IS? No!

Best IS, canon R5
Best Sensor readout, A9, A7sIII
Compact tele? Like the Fuji 200/2? Not really..

BrentSchumer: I really wish Fuji would upgrade the AF of their older lenses instead of shooting the moon with novelty glass. You're not going to make an APSC camera into a FF camera, but you can polish the heck out of that APSC mount and make it sing.

It isnt the equivalent of canon 85/1.2, more like FF 85/1.8!

In reply to:

mosc: 75mm FF Equiv is a lot wider than FF bokeh bombs have been running lately. 85mm is traditional and all but Nikon and others have released their biggest portrait apertures at 105mm on the longer side of 85, not the shorter like this Fuji. If they can focus F1.0, they could have gone with something like a 60mm or even 70mm.

At 60mm f1.0 APS-C it'd match the DOF of an 85mm f1.4 FF (just slightly longer).
At 70mm f1.0 APS-C it'd match the DOF of an 85mm 1.2 FF and only be slightly smaller aperture at the same focal length of a 105mm f1.4

Your dof conversion is all wrong, its more like f/1 to f/1.7 in FF land

Tomasz_Wk: Funny how people complain about the “big” lens and still forget that Fujifilm still offers the small 50 f2 and the still not to big 56 f1.2. This new lens gives more options to Fuji shooters which is a good thing.

Duxx, Nikon Z and Sony has a more sensible lens size selection. And they will be noticably better than Fuji X re IQ and RAW file malleability

Joed700: Finally, an APS-C lens with DOF equivalent of a f/1.5 FF 50mm prime lens from Fujifilm. Can't wait to see the bokeh test on this lens.

Why are you insecure Watson? Theres no way in hell a fuji 35/2 is better than FF 50 mm lens. Its a small and performs accetably, no more than that. Even their own 35/1.4 renders better.

In reply to:

DrewRick: Gif of MJ eating popcorn while I read posts by insecure FF trolls pretending that people who use this lens buy only one lens and one flagship camera. :D The truth is, a full-fledged lens system with tiny, small, and large lenses and cheap, portable backup body options give the Fuji system a versatility that other systems struggle to match.

Thats you being dumb Watson

In reply to:

kristian1: Smaller sensor size are all for size and price, if you already need / want "f1.4" aperture this is time to move to FF.
Many FF options are available with better value.

But it is nice to see something like that from Fuji for sure.

Fuji has advantage in rendering and colors? Subjective. Fuji has berter JPEG simulation, YES!

All curent gen FF cameras has better RAW output and sharpness.

papajohnny: Interesting lens but seriously overpriced.
If you really need a good portrait lens of this caliber you would go with FF camera and something like Sigma 85/1.4, which is a lot sharper, doesn't have so much CA, and $300 cheaper too.

He means if you starting from zero

Rathenwohl: If this had been available two months ago I may not have purchased my A7iii. The grip is a bit more comfortable on the Z6 (and I'm assuming the Z5) and the weather sealing is superior to the Sony. No regrets, but this is indeed an attractive offering from Nikon.

No worries, the mk IV generation has better grips and EVF should you need one. Lets hope the clues from the A7sIII of faster processor and 8 MP EVF trickle down to A7 IV, well at least we might have the 5.7 MP one!

For M lenses the Leica SL is the best. Dont waster your time with other manufacturers offering. Just a waste of money.

In reply to:

Jacques Cornell: As a stills-only shooter, I love this approach, accepting reduced video performance in exchange for punching above its price on stills quality and features. The a7III feels a bit overpriced to me in comparison. I like my a7RII, a7III and two a7RIIIs, but I gotta say, if this Nikon had been available 18 months ago, I might not have gone down the Sony path at all.

Well to be frank, the A7iii will still get better images, video and more shots in focus.

And how old is the A7iii?

In reply to:

ekaton: A more compact Pana/Leica FF L-mount body interests me, particularly also for use with m-mount lenses. Something I use the Leica CL for these days.

Why? Sensor performance for M will be lacking?

In reply to:

thx1138: Although not a portrait fan, these are very nice shots and the lens delivers for that use. Everybody clamouring for big apertures but even at f/4 there was not a single shot where if you had two people that both sets of eyes were in focus. Wide open with just 1 person, it's hard to get both eyes in focus without careful alignment. Still think f/1.8 is a sweet spot for this FL.

Dont be dumb, there are other scenarios where 1.4 is needed. If you do not meed them or not know how to use it, fine. Dont assume the whole world is on your side

GarysInSoCal: These are some impressive images... but quite frankly... all of them could have been shot with the same effect and sharpness with my Nikon 85 F 1.8 for $700 less... ;)
