    hi Viktor great review. ı have got two Loxia, 21mm and 50mm. I would like to ask 3 question.

    1. İs there a huge, big, real etc. 🙂 different image and bokeh quality with ZA 5omm f1.4 planar?

    2. Sony and sigma 85mm f value 1.4 and Batis 85mm f value 1.8. So why Loxia f value 2.4 what is the f2.4 purposes?

    3. ıf you were in my situation, would you buy Loxia 35mm?

    thx a lot.

      //VBL: Would you say that compactness is the key selling proposition of the Loxia lenses?

      Mr. Cristophe Casenave: Definitely. But without compromising build or image quality. This is why Loxia 85 is “only” f/2.4. We have this 85/4 lens in M mount (Tele-Tessar) and people always said – it might be a bit slow but its size is miraculous, it’s superb. So we tried to make a compromise, to keep the size compact while adding a bit more light. We were opening it more and more and then we said stop, that’s it – f/2.4, that’s a perfect balance between size and speed.
