Do you mean the Batis lenses? Or more/other lenses?



Tamron -> Sony/Zeiss/Nikon
KonicaMinolta -> Nikon/Leica (basically all their APS-C lenses for L mount are designed by KM)
Sigma -> Panasonic/Olympus/Leica (mainly the R lenses if my memories haven't failed me)

Interesting, Do you have sources for these?

I'm really impressed by how the GM line keeps improving. We need a super wide and a normal prime in the range.

Leica R lenses were mostly made by Leica. Sigma was among the other makers for R lenses, others included Minolta, Zeiss, Schneider. IIRC a specialized copy lens (i.e., document copying) was made by Tamron.

As Doug mentioned some of the makers of lenses for the R lenses, but so did Kyocera (makers of Contax and Yashica cameras and lenses) who made the Leica R 35-70mm f4 and 80-200mm f4 Vario Elmar lenses.

I've seen patents for Leica L APS-C lenses by Konica Minolta a good while ago, but don't have the link.

Sigma -> Panasonic/Olympus/Leica (mainly the R lenses if my memories haven't failed me)

The Olympus 75/1.8 for m43 is a Sigma design, patent can be found on the 43rumors site.

Wouldn’t mind a GM 50/1.2

Unsurprising. The Sony 24GM is the closest thing I can imagine to a perfect lens - lightweight (at 445g, it's lighter than Nikon's upcoming 24 f/1.8 Z, and a stop faster!), fast, responsive, and optically amazing. And a mere $1399, so no exhausting and pointless Zeiss markup for paper-weight MF lenses.

What more could one ask for?

Klaus has reviewed the 24 GM! (actually a sample gallery has been up for a few days, so this was kinda inevitable). Very impressive resolution, no distortion (not even in RAW), very little CA, though strong vignetting - about par for the course for an f/1.4 lens anyway.

Makes me really regret being a Canon EF user (I have the 24L - that has been tested to be not nearly that well performing). Hopefully Klaus will take a stab at the 35/50 mm fields next, which have many new options, or those long overdue for testing.
