Saw some sample photos here.
It will be available in Japan in May, for about US$1500.
Lovely lens, with a price to match.
It's an interesting design - a stop faster than most other macro lenses, but only goes to 1:2. I'd regard it more of a fast portrait lens with close focusing than a macro as it does not really go close enough for small subjects.
Olympus used to make a couple of similar lenses, a 90/2 1:2 macro lens, and a 100/2 APO lens with close focusing ... I wonder how they compare?
That lens has lovely bokeh, but then it should do for the price.
I wouldn't call it lovely, but it does have f/2 so it can definitely give you blur if you want it. I doubt it would give most people a problem...
Looks like an interesting lens, but still in a field that is competing against some of the best lenses by Nikon and other manufacturers. I still sorta hope they have something unique up their sleeve sometime down the line.
I dunno...its pretty good.
i like it.
Killer flower lens I'd think, if you like to isolate a bloom against a blurred background.
wow thats impressive thanks for sharing!
For what a Lester Dine/Kiron 105mm f/2.8 is going for, I think that would be a much better lens for flowers/bokeh if you don't need the extra stop. Even at $300-350 it's the best lens you can buy IMHO.:smile:
