The main problem with the RX1 series at least in my eyes is that the lens dies with the camera. The sensor, PCB, some random switch or whatever on the camera is much much more likely to fail vs the lens.

Once that happens and repairs become costly you have a dead lens that can't follow to a new camera, like on the A7 series.

I have my doubts a 35/1.4 with AF will be half the size of the FE 35/1.4 ZA. If it is, we can't expect similar IQ.
Perhaps the new Sigma will be a f/2 or f/1.8.

Sigma is not shy in coming out with largish and quite heavy lenses although I have to admit that the IQ of their Art lenses is superb. Their most recent 135mm f/1.8 Art lens at over 1kg is even heavier than the Sony 135mm f/1.8 Zeiss lens, and the filter diameter of the Sigma is 82mm. Yes, those lenses so far are more based on DSLR system and I hope that they indeed can make those lenses smaller and lighter for the Sony FE mount.


I also have my doubts that it will be a 1.4 but it isn't outside the realm of possibility. It is easy to forget the Sigma has experience designing for mirrorless cameras (the NEX/m43 as well as their fixed DP line) and their mirrorless designs are all relatively compact. If the Sigma is 1.4 and smaller than the Sony 1.4 I suspect there will be some compromise. What that will be and how much it matters is unknown. My guess would be CA wide-open and AF speed would likely be where it falls short.

There really should be no questions or controversy here:
The Sony 35/2.8 is high priced, not even close to being optically fantastic and there is room for a cheaper and potentially equally as good alternative.

Buy the Samyang or don't.

I own the Sony 35/2.8 and I put up with its optical issues (and price) because of the weight and size. If the Samyang beats out the Sony for less cost, then great, we are all likely ahead in the end independent of which one a person buys.

Personally I would like a compact great AF 35/2 for a reasonable price that the Loxia is not, but I guess we'll have to wait for that from some other lens manufacturer.

The same could be said about Voigtlander. They have an excellent 35mm f 1.7 Ultron, yet they chose to modify the stupid 35mm f1.4 classic for Sony E mount.


Even though I've just purchased a used single coated version of the "stupid 35mm f1.4 classic" in order to achieve a particular "look", I agree that an E-mount version of the CV 35/1.7 would be far more welcome and commercially successful. Mr Kobayashi is renowned or notorious, depending on your point of view, for making idiosyncratic decisions about new CV lens designs.

If it is really nice I might be interested though it would want to be very good to replace my Canon EF 40 2.8 STM (but not a focal length I need all that often and I am very happy with the Canon, slow AF and all on an A7s).

I would love for them to make an AF 100 f2 or even 2.4/2.8 at a cheap price in FF E mount

I own a lot of 35mm legacy lenses and never bought the FE 35mm/2.8Z becaus of value for money. Now the Samyang could be an option if they deliver their typical optical background characteristics with this near pancake lens.
But I own already the FE28mm/2 and the Canon EF 40mm STF. So I have to wait for detailed comparisons to decide if I would enjoy the use and ownership.

It's an f/2.8 lens. Please provide their lens(es) showing the "typical" optical background characteristics you are hoping to get?

I hope for a more velvety background characteristic especially against the light. E.g. not like the Loxia wide open.
Here's a comparison between different 28mm lenses (https://phillipreeve.net/blog/old-new-zeiss-2-828-vs-sony-fe-228-vs-minolta-mc-228/)
and so they're presenting all their different calm or busy backgrounds and so it will be with 35mm lenses.

If the image quality is good and I can find it for cheap one day, I might get it, because it would be nice to have a small and light lens as a go-everywhere setup. Doesn't really have a lens today to takes full advantage of the smallish promise of the A7-series.

And no, the 28 mm focal length won't cut it for me for that application, so no Sony FE 28mm f/2.

BTW any word on when it is to hit the streets. I need a little lens until I get the 16-35. I have a two shooter red carpet deal and I have a 18 and 35. I could put the 18 in crop mode but a 25 or 28 even a 35mm would be handy. I don't want to spend a lot of money because i will sell it.

The 28/2 is a great lens for the money, with the added benefits of being f2.0 and also having very, very fast AF.

Stopped down its actually very sharp across the frame as well...

Kind of like the 85 1.8 FE, its a lens that performs far better than its humble price tag suggest.

I liked it over the Batis 25, and got it for like 1/3rd the price, which I like even better.

That's the one I'm thinking is the 28. I had it but was a bad copy but for this stuff it should be fine. I'll order one from Best Buy or something. I have till July 7th until I need it in Ny

I could give it to my son for his BD too on his 6300

I want/need a little 35mm. Is there any performance/image quality reason to prefer the Samyang over the Sony Zeiss? Or is the advantage mainly price?
