    For wich bajonett?? Top Secret??

    • I did not see any reference but my guess is Nikon and Canon DSLR only mount.

    If we go solely by the provided MFT chart, this is going to be Yongnuo’s sharpest lens to date by a very wide margin. It even looks sharper than Canon’s from the center to the APS-C corner, from there on to the FF corners the Canon beats it. And, again, this is with 2 fewer lens elements! Well, seeing is believing, can’t wait to see samples, read reviews about it and seeing its real market price.

      I think their lousy AF motors have been the biggest disappointment in the reviews I’ve seen so far. Slow, loud and hard to get a lock at times. Yeah, that chart looks pretty good.

  • James Larsen

    I legit thought this was a prank, lol
    This is actually kinda exciting to see! I hope their AF system can get better. If so, this looks like a decent lens!!

  • Benjamin Brosdau

    Based on this chart the lens is going to suffer from severe astigmatism. It seems as if the meridional performance is barely affected by stopping down the lens. This does not bode well for a landscape lens.
