    Oh ok. Hope the 32mm is the next to come out or 18. Three lenses is one short of what I would consider a set... 4 is the least IMO.

    Pretty sure that is the next one. I'm hoping for some kind of announcement any time soon.

    Will be interesting to see what you think once you get the 50

    cheers

    Have you compared it to the Sigma 50 ART?

    Yes I've shot a lot with the art lenses. They are great, butt too sharp and contrasty for my tastes in owning a personal set. But they are great. Very clinical though. These have more character, which I like.

    Quick thoughts: love the APO-ness, zero CA, the 50 has a flare that I like, and a veiling bloom for sources out of frame that grows intense as it approaches the edge, and a rainbow for things passing through frame, both which I like, the bokeh is creamy, they are warm like Cooke, and seem definitely less harsh just in general than sigma, build quality is super solid, and they are not light, I actually add a soft fingerprint on the rear element which gives a nice bloom to sources, I like that kind of thing though

    This is all coming for a guy who loves superspeeds and contax zeiss, so i'm looking for certain bloom and lo-con

    also, everything I've shot is wide open which adds a bit of locon, also what i like
