FM Review of the Voigtlander 40mm f/1.2 Nokton Oct 16, 2017
FM Review of the Voigtlander 40mm f/1.2 Nokton
This is an ongoing review of the CV 40/1.2 Nokton lens. I received it yesterday and so far, I was able to test it at infinity distance. I also compared it to the Voigtlander 35mm f/1.7 Ultron with a PCX (Plano-convex) front-lens side-by-side.

This thread will be updated with many other tests like OOF rendering, CA, Coma and sunstar rendition.

The US price for the Nokton 40mm f/1.2 was just announced at $1,059. It's not a cheap lens but it's designed with four aspherical surfaces as seen in this diagram:

DxOmark: FE 16-35mm f/2.8 GM, Highest-rated wide-angle zoom Oct 13, 2017
DxOmark: FE 16-35mm f/2.8 GM, Highest-rated wide-angle zoom
DxOmark says the new Sony FE 16-35mm f/2.8 GM lens is a the highest-rated wide-angle zoom ever tested.

"The new Sony FE 16-35mm lens reaches new scoring heights in the category of wide-angle zoom lenses, as well as a category record score for Sharpness — both when compared to other E-mount lenses and to what is possible with high-end lenses for other mounts. When shot on the Sony A7R II body, it scores 42 Overall, with a Sharpness score of 34. Obviously some of the strength of its results is due to the quality of the Sony A7R II body we used for testing, but it requires a top-of-the-line lens to bring the best out of a top-notch camera body."

LensRentals: MTF Tests  for Batis 18mm and 135mm f/2.8 Lenses
@RCicala at LensRentals just posted MTF and Variance Testing for the Batis 18mm f/2.8 and 135mm f/2.8 lenses.

Here is an except from Roger's test:

"The Batis are generally excellent lenses, reasonably small to carry around, and, by FE mount standards not ridiculously high in price. So I finally got around to testing both of them and thought I’d just combine things into a single post."

New TechArt AF adapter: Canon EF to Fujifilm GFX unveiled! Sep 20, 2017
New TechArt AF adapter: Canon EF to Fujifilm GFX unveiled!
Press-release:

Guangzhou China, Sep 20, 2017 – The innovative adapter developer, Techart, who has previously launched the first autofocus adapter for manual lenses, has unveiled the world’s first Autofocus adapter for Canon EF lenses & Fujifilm GFX 50S camera. The Techart EF-GFX adapter provides autofocus function as well as in-body aperture control for using Canon /Sigma EF-mount lenses on the Fujifilm GFX body.

Techart has tested extensively on the modern Canon / Sigma EF-mount lenses in the market and found the autofocus performance on the GFX is satisfactory. Aperture of the lenses can also be adjusted on the camera by simply turning the command dial. The EF-GFX adapter currently supports AF-S mode for shooting and supports the lens Image Stabilization function (if applicable). Focal length and aperture data will also be saved into the adapter.

Techart is also working to unlock the AF-C and video-shooting feature. It is expected to be seen in future firmware release. The firmware of the adapter is user-upgradable and can be done by simply plugging the adapter into a computer via the Micro USB cable and running the update program.
The short flange distance of Fujifilm GFX 50S provides a perfect platform for adapting different mount lenses. Although not every one of the full frame EF-mount lenses has a big enough image circle to cover the GFX sensor, Techart EF-GFX adapter still opens up a wide range of lenses options for GFX users to consider.

------------

Pricing and Availability:

The Techart Canon EF – Fujifilm GFX Autofocus Adapter is currently available for pre-order at our official website (http://www.techartpro.com). The recommended retail price is USD 499/pc. Free shipping will be provided during the promotion period.
Delivery will commence from mid Oct onwards. 1-year warranty is included.
