30mm f2.8 macro, do people want this??
I've seen people post that they wanted a 50mm equiv. With 28mm available, I can't say that I've felt a need for 30mm.... Seems odd, but I say wait for pricing and compare to the 28mm.
50mm f1.8 DT...a crop prime..hmmm, not even 35mm for a 50mm FOV, by all means do a cheap 50mm but FF please..grrrr
Seems like a DT version could be made cheaper... a bit less glass at least. I think people have pointed out the 50/1.7 a lot, so perhaps this is Sony's answer. I would imagine that they would expect FF owners to cough up the extra bucks for the 50/1.4. How many FF 50mm lenses do you need? Aren't there a couple of others already?
I know, FF is the future, etc. Not clear that that is the case. Particularly after this lineup.
Seriously, does it bother you that there are new DT lenses and that crop sensors are going to be around for a while?
I'd be interested to know if a DT 50mm is any smaller than the FF version.
As for the quality of the 50/1.7, as much as I like it, it seems not so good at 1.7. Even at 2.0, the edges are awful. At f4 it looks great, but then that's a far cry from 1.7, where I might like it for low-light reasons...
55-200, we have one already, maybe a FF one??
18-55mm F3.5-5.6, new kit lens, well we need one, but null points for original thinking!
This pretty much confirms what I have thought for a while now, sony don't really understand what folks are looking for lens wise
I really don't know what folks are looking for, I suppose, but perhaps this is trying to solidify the amateur end of the line. I think we have to wait for pricing before making any final conclusions...
