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.

So the X-T100 is a XA-5 with evf and bayer sensor. Wouldn't be better to call it a X-E30? I thought the X-T series was DSLR like body.

Everything about the lens sounds good, but I prefer a mechanical focus ring over focus-by-wire technology, especially for macro work. Maybe thats just me though.

Yeah, FF mirrorless camera...nope its a printer. That's what people were asking for.

That's why you don't publish rumors in the first place.
