      Mock up of upcoming Fuji Mirrorless Interchangeable lens camera:



      Fuji are _claiming_ better than fullframe resolution and dynamic range. Sensor appears to be somewhere between APS-C and FF. Maybe APS-H? Size of camera is a little larger than the X100

      Due first quarter next year.

      How would the Canon 28mm f/1.8 differ from the plastic fantastic?

      Seems there's a little bit of egg in all of us.

      Speaking of an egg... who wants to get rid of his EF prime ... for cheap ?

      I'd STRONGLY recommend the Sigma 30/1.4 over that... cheaper, and I would be amazed if it didn't **** on the can28 from a very great height. The Can28 is a very old design (release in 1995)

      the 30/1.4 is one of my favorite lenses.

      Yeah, but isn't the Sigma almost triple the weight?

      Anybody want a Fuji x100?

      I used Sigma's 30mm for 2 years and while it works amazing in low light, getting it to focus was the biggest challenge... for me at least. I heard however, that the focusing was mainly an issue on Canon bodies, while it worked a lot better on Nikon.

      Most definitely a MUCH MUCH better glass. One thing though, be sure that you test it in the shop for any potential focusing issues or that the shop would allow you to exchange should you find any issues with it within first week or so

      In terms of usability though, is it for the same sort of work?

      Well, fora crop body both essentially do the same work. now, I don't remember what camera you have but if it is a crop body, I think a 30mm Sigma will be just about perfect, thoguh in some cases not wide enough. It certainly is quite a bit more expensive.

      Of course, you could always go for that famous and quite a bit more expensive 24-70mm 2.8L, which would compliment your 70-200 quite well. That's what I'd personally save some cash for.

      the sigma 30/1.4
      I've also got a sigma 24-70/2.8 but I never use it. it's a strange range on a crop body.
      different lenses for different uses IMHO.

      Sigma is awesome for evenings - this was about 10pm

      Go for Sigma. You won't regret it. It also doesn't brake the bank though more expensive than a "nifty fifty".

      Matt, have you taken Canon's 50mm f/1.4 into consideration ?

      Well, it stacks up pretty well between "nifty fifty" and Sigma.

      Costs around AUD $550 if bought locally.

      It is a great all-around lens and f/1.4 really helps in low light.

      A better question would be, what's your budget ? If above $1000, then get a 24-70 f/2.8L and don't even thing about anything else.
