  • B. R. P.

    Tse already schos tsіkave)

  • Vlad

    And what about the cic? Rozmir/vaga ta mdf? 12-24/4 art

    • Arkady Shapoval

      Price, the possibility of conventional filters, which is very, very important

    • B. R. P.

      You are looking at the art, you are on the right, I have my own obsession.

    • Victor

      Nichosi "trohi dorozhcha" - $ 700 vs $ 1599 - more than doubled.

      Arkady wrote about filters.

      Why autofocus on such focal lengths and f / 5.6?

      • Vlad

        For the landscape is not needed) but for the dynamics at close range - very

        • Victor

          Well, if it’s completely point blank))

          At 12mm there is hyperfocal from 1 meter))

  • Pkuutn

    If it is noticeably cheaper than the Nikkor 14-30mm f / 4 S in real sale, then you can see. And so - on Nikkor, you can also use ordinary filters, and still f / 4, and still autofocus.

    • Victor

      Hmm, the Nikkor sells for $1300, if this one is as advertised, the price difference is almost double.

      And then 12mm. And 77mm filters (82 is still rarer and more expensive)

      • Pkuutn

        Well ... It's one thing - when you take a very cheap Chinese like Yongnuo or Meike, everything is clear there and you are ready to compromise - the issue price is $ 200, why not.
        And another thing - when Laowa, here the price is already such that it falls into the same category with a used original, and even with a new one - not “even twice”, but “only twice”, and you no longer agree to compromises really want.

        • Victor

          I think we need to wait for the samples, and then discuss in detail the expediency of this or that decision))
