This cameras has something called a weak link. It would be kick ass if it only had a 2011 class sensor on it (2014 would be nice but I know not to expect much). Samsung seems to have a BSI APC in...
I have a huge set of PL lenses I been wanting to use...good for this camera.
Looking at MTF charts, the lens seems to be "Tuned" for performance at the long end. This is good news.

sexy looking lens, I would tap that.
It looks like the nikon with huge front element, This should yield a nice side of flare that we all love.

It is APO as far as I remember.
On the topic of manual focusing. It is a different world focusing a lens such as the Nikon 50mm f1.2 compared to a well corrected lens. Even if you manage to focus the Nikon 50mm f1.2 (focus is...
a cat is not a bad subject to test out the APO claim.
Im sure for the cost of a nice set of 86mm filters you could by the rest of the samyang lineup.
I compared the MTF charts from the older 85mm f1.4 to the Otus. It seems like the Otus has the same performance @f1.4 than the older design at f5.6. Zeiss also included MTF information at near and...
Todays camera gear is very good. I would say most, 98%+ of "Professionals" are NOT limited by the gear but by skill. A small amount of photographers "2%" are so experienced and desire something...
or maybe wifi to connect it to your phone.
Lensrentals did some tests on sensor stacks and the thickness and how it relates to sharpness. Zeiss did compensate for the 2mm sensor glass stack on sony sensors.
If Ford made a model T replica today it would not cost $240 as it did in the early 1900's and it would be much better than the original given todays manufacturing technology. Price is also...
