    It's beautiful, congrats Timur, but I find the flares a little bit distracting... I wonder if it wouldn't have been better without ;-)

    I'm with you Kristin, the flares look pretty awful, like somebody slapped them on there for no reason....To be clear that has nothing to do with Timurs work which is excellent. Just the flares are ...."cheap" looking on these lenses

    I'm curious to see the flaring of the Sigma classics from more of a point source. I think what some are not liking is that the flaring is being produced by broad-source light, the large windows, and results is the washed out "veiling flare" more than "ghosting flare". When lens test videos test flare they usually test it with a point source- a flashlight or small fresnel and not a broad light source like the windows in this video. My Canon L glass produces this sort of veiling flare under certain circumstances, usually a broad source just out of frame or in frame. Not wild about it. All too often I've found myself having to ride focus while also flagging the lens with the same hand.

    That's right- there is nothing interesting about a veiling flare, just a washed out center of the image. any cheap lens does that,,,

    Looks pretty great, wondering how they look side by side with the Sigma ART lenses. Especially how they render skintones and their sharpness, as the sigma ART are not forgiving on the skin (def in close up).

    So far, personally what I like about these vs Vista Ones is how wild ass crazy they are.

    No half measures were taken... gotta admit I like the detune on the “MasterBuilt” version of Tokina Vistas too...
