The war of the three dynasties is officially on. Smile But I had hoped for a picture of the lens.  :unsure:

Strangely they haven't mentioned a thing on their website yet (and that site looks even older than PZ).

To be very honest, it has to be way better than the Panny 7-14 for me to consider this lens. Generally speaking wide open SLR Magic lenses do not score too highly, and the corners stay behind for quite a while as well. Now, this is an F/4 lens, so who knows, it may perform well wide open, but I'll wait for a bunch of tests first. Smile


Kind regards, Wim

Gear: Canon EOS R with 3 primes and 2 zooms, 4 EF-R adapters, Canon EOS 5 (analog), 9 Canon EF primes, a lone Canon EF zoom, 2 extenders, 2 converters, tubes; Olympus OM-D 1 Mk II & Pen F with 12 primes, 6 zooms, and 3 Metabones EF-MFT adapters ....
I wouldn't expect too much. Even the sample video looks soso at the borders.
