Lowering the cost of manufacture of DO lenses could really benefit compact mirrorless systems as well as big whites. Gimme, gimme!

The graduated neutral density filter patent is another sure sign that we're going to get a lens with an apodization filter launched.

On a related note, I tried out the Laowa 135mm STF lens the other day, and was very impressed. I also tried out the Sony 100mm STF and was far less impressed.

That drawing looks disappointing as it hint on NO tilty flippy screen on the full frame models :(
Ehh, it’s one of Canon’s old DSLRs. A 50D, probably. Just used as an illustration.
