VadymA: Well Nikon, soon it will be our turn to tease you... WITH OUR MONEY.

Or for some people, their criticism.

panther fan: They need to stop with that tiny 0.62X viewfinder they put in everything.

Sony puts 0.7X in every model of their A6000 series. Panasonic puts 0.7X in their cheap G series and GX series cameras.
And mid range models like the G85 or E-M5 II have 0.74X

Fujis next X-t20 like camera needs to have a bigger EVF. Nobody builds EVFs this small anymore:

I believe the actual size of the display is the same. Its the magnification that's different. Fujifilm probably used less magnification because of the smaller overall body size and its cheaper. Keep in mind Fujifilm has one of the best and biggest magnification EVF in the XT-1/XT-2 at 0.77x. which is almost as the big as the Sony A7RIII.

AbrasiveReducer: I thought SLR shutters, with those mirrors going up and down didn't last long and that's why we need mirrorless cameras to deal with this epidemic of shutter failures.

all ILC mirrorless cameras have shutters too. And probably have to work twice as hard as DLSRs since they need to be open for liveview.

I'm not a Leica fan and will never buy one, but the lens has great contrast wide open. Very nice images.

Lens Fanatics: Nikon - Gold
Canon - Red
Fuji - Green

Oh brother who's gonna take the Pink ?

Canon also uses green for their DO optics lenses.

That's a nice shade of green. Reminds me of Fujifilm's past.

jaykumarr: Great that Canon focuses on serving scientific community and research. Admirable.
huge size is basically quantity.
quantity = Canon is the winner
quality ? may be sony

I meant no disrespect. But genuinely interested. I have cameras made by both sony (nex-5n) and canon (70D) as well as others, so I know both sensors technologies well.

Sony made quality products in the 80's (there were camera sensors in the 80's). Why do you think the Sony sensor is better than Canon's offering? Both have there advantages and disadvantages.

evogt500: wow, $1200 for a 50mm F1.4 lens. Ridiculous.

@kodachromeguy
1. Yes I own competing brands, but have owned Pentax Spotmatic II, KX, and ME Super cameras with their lenses (those lens are now adapted to digital). If the other brands I owned brought out a similar lens with a similar price, I would feel the same way as I do with this lens.
2. I can afford, it but don't want to pay that much (maybe that means I cant afford it?)
3.Sorry, not trolling. Just my opinion.
4. Not really jealous, as I feel Pentax now is a dying brand. (I hope they succeed, competition always benefits the consumer).
5. Yes, I do. But I also know all the glass in this lens isn't cheap.

I guess I am used to the price of a standard focal length lens to be more affordable. I think the 50mm double-gauss formula is still good enough for me, and they can be had for a far affordable price and have a smaller form factor. Thanks for all the comments.

RootX: The cooperation between Apple and Fujifilm would be more interesting.

Quick fact : The Apple Quicktake 200 digital camera was made by Fujifilm. Sorry for being off topic...

The bokeh seems slightly swirly.

Really? Sony for quality? Maybe back in the 80's...

EcoR1: “ The FE mount means it works with full-frame Sony cameras...”

Who is writing these articles? DPReview, do something about this. FE-mount doesn’t mean anything, because there is no such a thing. Writing this kind of nonsense gives impression that this lens is not usable with Sony’s A6xxx-series. Newsflash, as a full frame E-mount lens it works with all E-mount cameras, apsc and fullframe alike.

Editors don’t make this nomenclature mistake when covering Nikon’s F-mount news. F-mount is always called as F-mount regardless of the lens type. Why is it so hard to do the same with Sony?

T3, Canon EF and EF-S uses the same mount. EF lenses can be mounted on EF-S bodies. EF-S lenses however can not be mounted on EF bodies, unless modified. But they are the same mount.

Not going to lie, those expired film images have a lot of character.
