Quote:A 50mm f/2.4 for 1000USD+ (I guess)? Really?
But I think the 12-100mm could be awesome ... although I reckon it'll be in that price league as well.
No, a 25 F/1.2.
If you mean equivalent, please say so. Even then, it still is an F/1.2 lens, and despite it being equivalent to a 50 mm F/2.4 FF lens, it is a difficult lens to make, by definition. In addition, it won't be made in the same numbers as some other manufacturers do, which is another reason why it will be expensive.
I think it will be in the $1400 to $1600 range, and will be very well made.
I also reckon that MFT is getting used more and more by pros who like to shoot with smaller cameras while carrying less weight. even at F/2.4 equivalent these new fast MFT lenses offer great subject separation. If that is what you are after, you either have the option of any of the faster MFT lenses, or a Metabones speed adapter with a fast Canon or Nikon lens or so. However, that will mean carrying a lot of extra weight compared to the smaller MFT lenses (e.g., 50 F/1.2 with Metabones adapter, vs 25 F/1.2 MFT or 0.95 25 MFT).
Kind regards, Wim
