    Yeah, let's have f/0.95 for a 50mm lens otherwise depth-of-field would be way too large. :rolleyes_old:

    Yes, but can you imagine how little light you could hand hold shots in with this lens and a A7s? Useable high ISO and a f/0.95 lens? Can you say concert/event/dark dank interior shot nirvana? Maybe. Someone else will have to be the pioneer for that. :biggrin:
