Quote:The only reason a 25mm with small image circle is harder to make is because the elements get in eachother's way because of the short focal length, so one might need some more elements for the same simple task?
And that is a very good reason to be unimpressed by it.. a simple normal prime with small aperture, for a high price, only because of the sensor size.
Equivalent on APS-C would be a 30mm f1.6 lens.That lens, although retro focus by need because of flange distance, is not that expensive at all.
And weight.. How much does that Sigma weight? How much would a 50mm f2.4 weight? The 50mm f1.8 STM weight almost nothing.
How about just carrying a FF camera with 50mm f1.8 for comparison, or a APS-C camera with that Sigma? That makes for a way less contrived case.
By the way, where are all those pro's using MFT?
One place to look is Olympus's own website, they have intros to pros using their products.
I knew Thom Hogan uses M43, travel photographers (Amos Chapple came to mind) and some journalists may tend to use the system more due to smaller footprint. I seldom see wedding and portrait photographers rely on the system due to limited dof control. In a way I guess people choose the tool for the job
