The Coming Oly EM1+12-40mm f2.8 MFT
#23
Quote:A MFT f/2.8 may offer a DOF of a f/5.6 on FF, yes. However, as far as I am concerned, a full format f/2.8 standard zoom it still not that hot for shallow DOF photography either. If I presented you a 70mm f/2.8 prime to be the best thing ever since sliced bread, you'd consider me to have gone gaga.

A 50mm f/1.4 or 85mm f/1.4 is fast, but not a 24-70mm f/2.8 - not in this range. A 200$ Sony 85mm f/2.8 is as capable in this respect as such a 2300$ zoom beast - how sick is this if you think about it ?

So if Oly can deliver great quality for 1K$ here, that will be great.
Still not sure why it will be great that the lens costs $999 (initially, mind you). And of course, f2.8 on FF does not deliver outstanding DOF control, but this lens still delivers 2 stops less, even.  How much do f2.8 primes cost for MFT?
