Hoping for 17.5 f1.2 or f1.4 Pana-Leica lens.
I'd even settle for an 18mm since we don't have one of those yet....
Sweet, another thread where we can post what we hope the new Leica prime lens will be.
Looks like we're getting a 12mm PanaLeica wide angle. Oh well!
I hope its f0.4 so we can get really good subject isolation ... even if the front is 30cm in diameter
I knew it was rumored to be a prime... but deep in my heart I was still hoping for a weather sealed 8-17 zoom that took filters 72mm or smaller. =[
for that I think my fishbowl works;p
I wasn't supposed to share the images of the new lens yet, but since you absolutely nailed it....
The new Panasonic 12mm f/0.4
and man, that is one beautiful piece of glass!
It's really the Nikon 6mm fisheye that has a 220 degree FOV!
$160,000 Nikkor 6mm Fisheye in Action on a Nikon D800
anyway @tkbslc you seem to have also given away the pre-production form of the GH5 in full frame too !
I would so love to pull this thing out at the next family reunion.
At $160,000, I don't think I'd be taking it anywhere...
I'd love to pull it out whenever I go somewhere, and encounter a retired guy with a Canon DSLR and a huge, HUGE white lens and condescending attitude.
The G-Series always seems to fly under the radar. I'm guessing we'll see the G-7 become the new bargain deal of m43 if a G-8 comes out soon.
Haha, wouldn't it only need to be 30mm in diameter (in theory, anyway)?
30cm is 300mm, and 300mm/.04= 7500mm aperture opening at max aperture value. In theory.
And the rumoured 7500mm/f0.004 would need a 1.875 km aperture. Sounds like that patent may never be realized in production.
Our dreams of intergalactic observation are foiled again...
The 7500mm f/0.4 would be perfect for a safari trip... shot from the east coast of the United States. But I'm not going to buy it unless it's a pancake, weighs less than 200g, and costs less than $500...
