Interesting. I haven't heard of this brand. I wonder how this would stack up against the same-spec Voigtlander. I have their 17.5mm and it's my favorite lens.

What's the normal price on this?

Literally the first google result for a review compares the same spec offerings from those two brands. Literally, literally. Are you lazy, or just aren't able to figure out the google?

I'm purposely not gonna post the review link here.

Sorry for all the comments, just spitting out my research....basically has better center sharpness at 0.95 and is lighter/smaller, as far as advantages over Voigtlander. Otherwise Voigtlander wins, especially in bokeh and corner sharpness. Interesting alternative for sure.

Too bad it relies on the inferior and failing MFT system design to achieve that speed.

It would be interesting to see on a 35mm format, not like it hasn't been done before...
Dying? Micro 4/3rds is doing great, especially for video.

New lenses come out almost monthly. DJI is using M4/3 for their drones. The best video cameras for the money from $500 up to $2K are all micro 4/3rds.

The sensors on recent m4/3 cameras are so good they allow in more light than full frame sensors of only a few years ago, The video functionality of Panasonic's M4/3 cameras are easily a decade ahead of any of the consumer 35mm DSLRs. The lenses are smaller, so cost a fraction of full frame.
