    Agree, unless the lenses transfer their properties and settings into the EXIF and engage magnified view when focussing for those who like that (I do), can't find anything on that. And then there's the pricing of course... Hard to compete with legacy glass with a 2.8/28mm and 2/50mm me thinks.

    Yeah, I've got my 50mm and 28mm needs covered by excellent and affordable legacy glass. I wouldn't give them the time of day.

    I will give a look to their 35mm and 25mm though. That f/0.95 seems interesting. But not the 12mm, as Samyang has a winner in that focal length for APS-C. Plus there's the competing 12mm f/2.8 full-frame from China.

    35mm is similar to 50mm, again tested on m43:

    I find it odd that the majority of the third party makers offer the same 28, 35 and 50mm lenses we already are so spoiled with. What would be nice to see is something a little longer some great macro- and fast portrait lenses. And what about TS-lenses?
    Am I starting to sound like a broken record? :)

    I'd love to see some of these manufacturers make "pancake" style lenses for the FE mount. Something similar to Canon's 40mm f/2.8 STM or the Voigtlander lenses. Anything they make for full frame could be fitted to the APS-C models easily. I realize I could use one of these on my A7II in crop mode, but it sort of defeats the purpose of having a full frame body if I'm just in APS-C mode all the time...

    Where are the compact full-frame native lenses!?
