Why do you still use a 24mp camera for testing? It's a focal range that many people will use for landscape photography and these people often own an A7R model. And as the lens is so small, many people will buy it for their aps-c bodies with their very demanding sensors.
Christopher Frost (on YT) tests all lenses on the A7R2 and the A5100, and I think that makes sense...

I'm in the market for a replacement for my ageing Powershot G9. Is this it?

I am rather impressed by this camera. I have just had some photos, taken with it, accepted for publication in a local glossy. Despite the fact they were all taken at ISO 6400. Smile

We are adding Vintage Reviews as and when lenses become available and as time allows, but those lenses would definitely be of interest.

It would be interesting to see measurements of a legacy lens in comparison. For example the Minolta MC Rokkor 1.4/58mm or 1.4/50mm.

Yes, they are slower, but they sell for less than half the price of the Kamlan, and are of very high mechanical quality.

I know. and with Sigma stopping production of K-mount lenses. (not a big one now, as the only FF lens was the 35mm F1.4 Art), it means that the only option for an AF 35mm is Pentax themselves, and that is "only" F2.
Having said that, it is a rather wonderful small sharp F2 lens. I recently got the SMC-FA version for not a lot of money, and I love it.
Still, if you want F1.4, the only option now is the Samyang and that is not AF
But.......Will Pentax/Ricoh have a deal with Tamron to make this lens in Pentax branded K-mount? Or go down the shared engineering route and Tokina? Either way, there is the elephant in the room and the wonderful but expensive 31mm F1.8 Limited.
Hmmmmmmm

I own a 60d and the 90d is what I was waiting for. However I want to be reassured the noise level is as low as the 80d or better. So, looking forward to reading the first in depth tests of the 90d

Don't buy a case for it as you won't be able to pose with it
