  • Andy From Far Away

    I read about a unique focal length of its kind and thought .. I had 17-50 10 years ago, and even 2.8, what is unique here? Then he returned to the line back and everything fell into place.

    • Arkady Shapoval

      he is full frame

      • Andy From Far Away

        And I'm talking about this .. just a lens with a range of fr 17-50 is so unusual that I first thought about aps-c, and then re-read it again. How many potential buyers will pass by when they see it in the window without even thinking that it is full-length? Most likely to official dealers with a red shield “Attention FF!” will deliver.

        • Arkady Shapoval

          not everything is so bad, for example, see the list of full-frame solutions from Tamron in this announcement? He just crawled into it)

  • Eugene

    Now, if it was 1.8 at all focal lengths, there would be an imba.

    • Andy From Far Away

      3x zoom and 1:1.8? I have not even seen this on micro 3/4. If I'm not mistaken, there is something similar with a zoom factor of about 2,5.

      • Arkady Shapoval

        there are 2.9X - OLYMPUS ZUIKO Digital 35-100mm 1:2 ED

        • Andy From Far Away

          Yes, either Olympus 35-100 c f2, or “Panoleica” 10-25 but already
          f1,7. They absolutely do not quite reach the “Wishlist” of Eugene. And by the way, the wishlist of many of us.
          In fairness, we can add that these glasses cover an area almost 4 times less than ff.
          And this is the main reason for the lack of such analogues for ff and also why I will not see 3x 2.8 zooms on Fuji G.

          • Arkady Shapoval

            If we take a full frame, that is, 28-70 / 2 with 2.5x

  • i is glorious

    Patents from Tamron for 16,5-70 / 4:

  • Eugene

    And this Olympus with f2 will be 20 years old at lunchtime.

    • Arkady Shapoval

      nevertheless, from this its zoom factor did not become less

  • i is glorious

    Patchy:
    > (EGF for Sony E APS-C cameras is 21-75mm)
    EGF will be 26-75

    • Arkady Shapoval

      Fixed
