A great lens, I am sure. But again. The RF lenses are almost bigger than the Fuji GFX medium format system. Never understood the need of that RF mount, if it means bigger and heavier.
Do you own or have you actually held the GFX system because I own both systems and doubt you have based on your comment. I assume you are talking specifically about the 120mm f4 “macro” lens that only does half life size. That’s right your comparing a lens that isn’t even really macro and has half the reproduction ratio. The Fuji 120mm f4 is much much larger than the Canon EF 100mm L macro. You have to slap the 45mm extension tube just to get to 1:1 with it which makes it as big as 180mm macro lens but only gives you 1:1 and 90mm field of view in FF equivalent. Please remind me of all the other compact GFX lens that compare directly feature for feature. Silly clown probably going to come back comparing Fuji f5.6 zooms with Canon f2 zooms.

Despite the apparent consensus in the recent comments I cannot see a SA ("Spherical Aberration") but rather a 5A ("Five Axis"?) - the "0.5" in the focus limit range uses the same font.

5-Axis (IBIS)?
Don’t forget the EF100 Macro was the first and only Canon lens with ‘Hybrid IS’ that allows for tilt as well as shake, all optically. No IBIS just lens based.

HAving said that I doubt that ring has anything to do with image stabilization.

I don't think so, look at a canon stabilized lens at the switch and the font for Stabilized S is closer to it than the 0.5 is IMO.

That's a horrible 5 if it's a 5. it looks truncated. My eyes say it's an S.

Trying a new Colombian coffee in the morning and reading through the 'geek' level in this thread..enjoying both tremendously. Keep it going people. CR forum is awesome.

(although many other posts here were way more geeky)

I'll guess the lens will be in the price range $2000-2500, but I'll get it anyway :)
Don't say things like that...:) You've got to say "I won't buy this unless it is under $1,500" :)

Really interesting lens if it brings something new, and just the sort of thing that might persuade a skeptic to go mirrorless...... Hmnnnnnnn
