I know it's a common complain, but boy are those sample pictures uninspired. I'll start reading only the Japanese reviews

I say to myself "this is probably the worst sample gallery ever".

The photos on the Japanese page look great!

Uninspired, may be.
But the quality is top level!

I agree, but it makes you wander what "testing" means for these websites and who is testing these lenses.
I understand that the technical aspects of a lens should come out regardless of the artistic ability of the photographer, but it's like giving an F1 Ferrari to a mechanical engineer and asking them "is it any good?". I'd rather hear it from an F1 driver (yes, I know that this example is not 100% fitting, but I hope you get my point).

That said, I really wanted this lens, and I'm not seeing anything bad about it. I will wait for it to hit the used market, though it may take a long time.

Price apart it should be great.
Curious the see comparison with the new Sigma ART.
(Possibly by a good Ferrari Engineer or better Vettel)

Please see the conclusion for the Batis 85mm review, compare it side by side to the 135mm review.

Useless.


I recommend Diglloyd, if you really want a review of the technical capabilities of a Lens. His reviews will at the very least show the highlights of the lens performance, and indicate any weaknesses.
