Default Samyang 10mm

10mm/2.8 announced. It looks a little big, but I know people have been waiting for a lens like this. I'll be interested in hearing the cost and performance over the Panny and Oly wide zooms. Judging by how much people like their fisheye I'm guess it'll have pretty nice IQ.

Personally I think I'd take smaller size over the pretty wide aperture but I know many would disagree.

I saw the announcement this morning. However, being so wide ... do you really need f2.8???? I think I'll keep my Zuiko 9-18 ...

Me too and on the E-M1 the FT 9-18 is also a perfect match for physical size.

Yeah, you'd think something like f/4ish would be a good compromise for size

I am kinda kicking myself for not picking up the FT 9-18mm for $299 factory refurbished during that refurbished sale they had on Cyber monday. I think I'll hold out and try to score a good deal on the MFT version.
