  • Novel

    Light pixel race.

  • Onotole

    Eh, now, if there was such a thing for a full-blooded mirror system, this would be a lens (even with all the optical flaws in the world, indispensable for such parameters) ...

    • Sergei

      In 1957, the Soviet KMZ released the C-180-S-P photo attachment to the C-180-S spectral camera.
      It was equipped with a 27mm F0,8 lens

      I believe that there were also enough optical deficiencies.

      • Arkady Shapoval

        But this SUPER NOKTON can be bought as much as you want, at least 100 pieces. And highly specialized Zenits have nothing to do with the classic photographic lens for the general public.

    Two. Thousands. Dollars.
    Why buy this completely manual crap for two kilobax? As far as I understand, 0.8 is needed here for bokehi? Then this lens on the open plan depth of depth of field will be almost indistinguishable from 50 / 1.4 in the full frame. And, if you have a head on your shoulders and critical thinking in this head, you can buy this type of glass, a full-frame carcass for it, and there will still be a beautiful present for your wife and son on LEGO.
    I accept manual focus only in rangefinders and scalers. For the rest, this is, to varying degrees, a mockery that is not worthy of our time.

    • Arkady Shapoval

      Well, that's just your opinion, your experience. The manuals for the UPC are a pretty nice thing because of the focus picking. And autofocus 50 1.4 under bzk - only new and only for very, very, very big money. Variants with adapters greatly spoil the entire brevity of a particular system. Therefore, there are many additional nuances here. You are talking about 50 1.4 for SLR cameras, the same Nocton for mirrorless cameras. You are talking about the equivalent depth of field, but in T-stops it will actually be a very fast lens with fast shutter speeds and the ability to shoot at low ISO, which is very important for Mikra. The difference between 1.4 and 0.8 is 3 times (i.e. one and a half steps). For 2000 dollars, a person will receive an absolute exclusive of the fastest lens of our time, this will also warm the soul. Moreover, this is not a Chinese know-name, but Voicht, manufactured by Cosina.

        Many things are hard to disagree with. Of course, I make a big mistake when comparing mirrors and mirrorless optics. Whatever one may say, mirrorless cameras have a lot of important and significant advantages - both in themselves and in terms of optics. And I consider the possibility of crops with a larger relative aperture to get the desired depth of field in general an extremely powerful tool.
        Focusing is a matter of personal preference, as you rightly pointed out. I interacted closely with mirrorless cameras, and focus-peaking didn't impress me at all as a tool. At the same time, manual focus on the Canon FD with my former T90 did not bring any negative at all. It was a couple of years ago, if anything, I was already familiar with all the delights of modern technology)
        But about the know-name ... Fochtländer is not a trademark that would have to tear the price tag for a name. Yes, once a leading company. But excuse me, the company itself, together with the plant, was closed and sold in the last century. For Cosina, it's just a trademark. They have good optics, but they would call a spade a spade.

        Bravo, nice try, but no :-)

        I would join the opinion of a comrade from above that it would be more expedient on the secondary housing for 2 kilobax to take a little-used autofocus modern sharp 50 1.4 (even under a bzk) and a mirror / mirrorless ff carcass to choose from, it would be much more profitable, including (there is a non-illusory suspicion) and the quality of the picture.

        True, exclusivity will no longer warm the soul, which is certainly sad, but not fatal.

        • Pokemon

          Canon 50 / 1.2 on the secondary costs less than a thousand, sometimes for 800-900 you can buy in good condition.

          • Novel

            I'm very tensely choosing between Canon and Sigma. The difference in 1.2 and 1.4 is not so significant, in favor of Canon is a much smaller size (as it is especially for such aperture) and a kind of bokeh + plus native, which means there will be no problems with the UPC, in favor of Sigma - sharpness with the open and the price.

            • Victor

              If sharpness with open is important, I would not even think about it, because, judging by the samples, the Canon has something similar to sharpness only from 1 / 1.8 - 1/2.

              • Novel

                Yes, that's just not particularly important. I do not know.

              • Jea reth

                Canon's 1.2 is actually quite sharp in the center, already open, but not right next to the subject. It is generally useless when close to the open, because even mosquito dignity will not fit into the visible depth of field. But from a few meters or more, there is nothing to complain about in the center.
                Samples are samples, but you have to look at the prints of real things, I think.

              • Victor

                “There’s nothing to complain about” is a very subjective judgment, everyone's requests are quite individual.

                In any case, at equal apertures, it is inferior to 50 art, except that the bokeh is calmer.

              • Novel

                As I understand it, most of the modern fifty dollars, and not only with their crazy front windows, is built according to the principle: “we cut off some of the edges, then we reduce the image - like a speedbooster, at the same time we will raise the sharpness” - that's why they live. With such introductory notes, it would be strange if the small canon would also win over them.
