evogt500: I really wish these companies would stop with these camera silhouette videos. Its a waste of time and bandwidth.

Of course one has to watch it in order to comment on it...

Its great to see how Nikon is progressing with their new mount. However, I still feel like they are holding back. Lots of F1.8's instead of F1.4's. While some may not need the faster lens, having F1.4's would surely make potential Sigma buyers think twice. I still feel that Nikon is trying to protect their DSLR lineup.

Its like putting those plastic jewelry you get at the dollar store, and put it in front of your lens.

The only Leica I can afford.

DPReview, I think there is a typo in the first paragraph. It says "Lynx" instead of "lens", unless Fuji calls their lenses by animals names like Apple once did with there OS's.

On article Meyer Optik Görlitz brand lives on under a new owner (93 comments in total)

The brand Meyer Optik Gorlitz is tarnished to me. I would never trust the name, even under new ownership. If you really want to buy their lenses, get a old used one.

It's just as bad as the notch.

micdjunior: Pardon my ignorance with this topic, but I'm trying to understand what (if any) benefit would be derived from a particular combination. Over the years, I've put more of my money into L glass, rather than trying to keep up with the latest bodies. However, I did recently pick up an M5 with adapter and the awesome EF-M 22MM for a steal.

One of my favorite walkaround lenses for the 5D3 is my 50mm F1.2L. And the 85mm F1.2LII is brilliant for portraiture. After reading a few articles about the (potential) Canon speedbooster and seeing some good reviews regarding the Viltrox speedbooster, I'm curious as to how the 50 or 85 1.2 might behave with such a device... Would it bump those lenses up to F1.0? Would a speedbooster on the M5 with an F1.2 lens produce images (bokeh/DOF) similar to an F1.0 on FF or do the dynamics change? What benefit, if any, could I expect or of that combination when compared to the 5D? Thanks!

In my opinion, the most beneficial part of the focal reducer is to get a closer focal length to its full frame equivalent. Wide angle lenses are expensive, and using them without any type of focal reducer makes them more of a standard focal length (example 24mm lens on APS-C equates to 38mm equivalent). Because the focal reducer concentrates the image circle, you do get more light on the sensor, but probably not a full stop.

The DOF question is a tricky one. The DOF should stay the same, however, the bokeh should seem to look shallower due to the focal reduction. Of course all these things really depends on the design of the focal reducer. 0.8x focal reduction is not as good as Metabones or Zhongyi, which are both around 0.7x, but that may be due to Canon not wanting to degrade corner resolution.

Remember people, this is a Kickstarter campaign. Don't be upset if the company burns you. cough**Meyer Optik**cough

Sigma is really showing they care.

Nobody is going to care in 3018, and that's if humans are still around.

gameshoes3003: The EOS 6D Mark II is listed twice on your chart, DPR. Once right after the EOS R, and then the very last spot.
Anyway, this is pretty neat. Wish Nikon could do the same.

Already tried that before. However it looks to be fixed now.
