puzzling why folks continue to use $10 filters on expensive lenses.

the Sigma 35 1.4 on the Sony A99 full frame will give you image stabilization. Although you cannot use the full 1.4 aperture for video.

DXOMark says they still have not tested all current pro lens in each line. Two major omissions in the test above which could improve Nikon averages are Nikkor 70-200mm F2.8 VRII and Nikkor 14-24mm.

How is it that both Sony and now Nikon has this same lens out at the same time?

no way the 50 1.4 can be $1500, unless it's a 1.2

tkbslc: To be honest, I think they need to figure out how to stop prices from dropping so quickly. It's kind of scary plopping down $1300 for a camera that will be worth less than half in only 18-24 months. Plus then your are constantly competing with your own half-price previous versions.

Today at Adorama: GH3 $1300. GH2 $600. That's going to be a hard sell.

That's about what happens to a new car.

On Leica M9 comparison shots added to dpreview database news story (149 comments in total)

These results are with 4 different lenses in addition to the bodies.
To be fair to the Leica, it uses the 75mm summarit, not exactly the sharpest in the M optics line. At $1595, it's one of the cheapest. of course, it's still considerably more than the canon 50 1.4 used, but equal in cost to the Sony Zeiss 85 1.4, which is probably the sharpest lens used in the tests.

considering all this, the results of the fujifilm x100 with the cheap built in lens is quite good even up against the full frame players.

BMS1: POPULAR PHOTOGRAPHY: Sony's A77 Is The New King of APS-C DSLRs

http://www.popphoto.com/gear/2011/09/lab-test-sony-a77-new-king-aps-c-dslrs

PopPhoto tables confirmed what DPReview's studio shots showed.
The Canon 5DM2 with over 2800 lines resolution, is a tad sharper than the Sony A77. The noise at over ISO3200 is where PopPhoto showed the A77 start having issues. Still, the utter speed of the A77 in the graphs is amazing.
