Could it be they know something about the future M that we don't know about?  ???

don't think so.
The lens cannot illuminate FF-image circle.
The EF-M mount does not allow FF-sensors either.
:-)


Total lunacy.  Taxation levels must be to low, as long as there are people willing to buy this @ 2 grand.   ;D

Wow.  The concept is cool, but how many people in the world are going to buy a two thousand dollar lens to mount on >$300 camera?

You beat me to it I was gonna say the exact same thing!  ;)

A $2,080 USD lens on a crop sensor... Meh  ::)

Hang on, this does happen when I use my 70-200 on my 7D  ;D

The good news here for me is that 3rd party are starting to consider M(Samyang 10 2.8 was announced for M too).
Small and cheap 40 1.4 would be great

Looking at the sample images here (scroll to "Sample photos with SONY NEX-7 Camera"), the bokeh looks distracting:


I find it hard to think if this is acceptable or not - $2000 is a lot of money even if it's the brightest lens available.

I had a look.  Yeah, the images really don't look like they're worth $2000. I'd almost say the 50 1.8 would do an equivalent job.  The way the out-of-focus specular highlights render is really annoying (e.g., xmas tree pic on that site).

pass.

Maybe this will spur other manufacturers to make faster lenses for EF mount (Sigma!!).

Basically you are right, it will be a few people.

But if that lens allows a new perspective/way of expression ... why not? I mount a 1400 Euro lens on a 350 Euro camera (EF 5.6 400 on 600D) which allow to do some tele photography / video (landscape/nature, where the 7D AF system is not necessary).

Think about video in low light in tight environments ...

Not that I am interested to much in that lens - if I use a high aperture lens I would like to have a great AF and perhaps IS to extend the range of use into near darkness.
TOOLS: EF-S 10-22 | 60 || EF 2.8/24 | 2.8/40 | 2.8+2.0/100 | 4.0/70-200 | 5.6/400 || 2 x 40D || 2x TC ||| 600D for video ||| EOS M + bunch of FD chrome rings

Looks like a perfect match for the Hasselblad Lunar. A couple of thousand is pocket change for those people, they probably have a camera caddy to carry it for them anyway, so weight isn’t an issue either. All they have to do is add a wooden focus ring and at least triple the price.

That camera is crap for the price, like all of the Panasonic 'Leica's'. I can't believe people with big wallets are so easily misled.

I also wrote an article about fast lenses about two weeks ago. Maybe I should update it with this Germanese lens?
