I asked for a 50mm f1.1 and a canon eos mount 28mm pancake and both have come to fruition. Cosina is definitely watching.

A really affordable (like €300,-) and still good 2.0/50 (non collapsible).

New Zeiss high resolution lenses announced at Photokina. I sure hope that they are made by CV and not manufactured in Germany.

Been a while since the last post on this thread, but since it's Christmas and as a result there's a lot of requests being put in with a friendly and wise elderly man anyway, here's mine.

Any chance on another Limited-Edition run of some lenses in LTM / M39 mount?

I'd love a fast 35, maybe the 1.4/35mm in LTM...


Maybe even a very limited edition of that lens in black paint and nickel?

I'm the only one who feels a urgent need for a 28/1,4 in M-mount?
Seems to be really a gap in the market.




(A Leica one wouldn't help - unaffordable...)

A 35mm f/1.4 lens that doesn't shift?

They already make one (well, two). It doesn't have tilt either.

An internally updated sensor R-D1 would be just fine by me. Meanwhile I'm carrying on with my originals. Leave the dials and analogue control please.
Thanks Epson.

The "gee wiz" f .95 optics (and other ultra speed lenses) are fine to demonstrate CV technical prowess.

But please, how about a range of compact, moderate aperture, smaller than a coke can, less expensive than a used car, light enough to toss in a jacket pocket, "lenses for the rest of us, not just the rich guys"

They should all be;

LTM with a M adapter included, this way they will fit the widest range of cameras.

Come with a compact aux viewfinder. These should be inexpensive plastic units.

Have a standard filter size.

The lens hood should be straight sided with the front diameter and thread the same as the lens, then you can use the same lens cap on the front of the hood if desired. The hood should be included.

I would envision a five unit "basic RF lens lineup"

21mm f5.6

28mm f4

35mm f2.8

50mm f2

90mm f4

While were on the subject; a basic M mount RF body, no built in meter, user selectable framlines for the classic 35-50-90 with a .7 eyepiece with adjustable diopter from -3 to +1.

Price in current USD; $400 each for the lenses, $500 for the body.

Thus a complete set would run $2500 new. This is only $1000 more than a clean and functioning M6 TTl body only on the used market.

I would love to see a high quality but simple-featured digital RF camera- a 20MP+ full-frame digital that takes M lenses and uses a Sigma Merrill sensor. It wouldn't have a million modes and a multi-hinged display screen. The cost would all go to image quality.

And a price well under $1000.

Put me on the list, please.

Cheers,
Dez

I second this one, although an X-Trans sensor would work just as well.

A FF update of the Epson RD-1 with M bayonet, optical VF and no "features".

Ahh, this is an easy one. Two items on my wish list:

1.) Compact 35mm RF with the 28mm Skopar built in. Some of us made the mistake of not buying this lens in LTM. By Voigtlander-style, I mean medium weight, modern materials, bigger than Konica C35 but not a Canonet. Good quality/cost compromise like the R that started all of this for me. The 35 Skopar would also be a reasonable choice, but I suspect a lot of us missed the 28 simply because it didn't match the camera VF (at the time) and missed out on something good, and would buy such a camera now.

2.) A classy (like Bronica RF645) non-interchangeable lens vertical format 645 RF. It seems that everything ever made in this format had some fatal design flaw. I think the format has potential that was never reached. Otherwise, I keep shooting my Pentacon

The dream: FF digital body with M mount. No frills, just the basics like the R2M or similar. Even the meter isn't necessary, but it *is* digital so...

Perhaps more practical: Fast portrait-length lens that isn't huge and unwieldy (within reason and optico-physical limitations). Perhaps an 85/1.8, 85/2, or 90/2. LTM would be nice too. I'd use this focal length more (for portraiture of course) if it were practical. The Canon and Nikkor 85/2 lenses I've played with are OK, but the optics are pretty old and they all would need an overhaul to make the focus smooth and precise, etc. Oh and they're *heavy*. I seriously see a niche for a portrait lens that isn't heavy (again within reason), relatively small, uses modern optics and coatings, reasonably fast, and costs less than the Leitz 90/2 APO (preferably a lot less).

If I had to choose between my suggestions above, I'd opt for the FF digital body with M mount. Price it below $2000 and I think you'd have a hard time keeping up with overwhelming demand. I'd pre-order...

A Bessa III (IV) / GF670 with a wider RF base - the short RF base is the only, but quite serious, drawback for me with this anotherwise perfect camera. Next would be a f/2.8 lens, but that I can live without - particularly since the RF base is so short.

Buy a ton of leftover D700 sensors for cheap and cram them in bessa/RD1 bodies

Hey, me again.

Still hoping for an 1.4/35mm in screw mount but also recently developed a lust for a copy of Konicas Hexanon 1.2/60mm in screw mount.

Man that would be something, only 900 Hexanons were made and they run over USD 7000 atm, if you can even find one that is...

Fingers crossed here, mr. K!

Build a Konica Hexar equivalent compact camera with a fast 28/2 Ultron/Skopar (or faster) and I am in.........

My wish list would be:
1) a compact RF body like the CL or CLE (digital would be a dream come true!)
2) a compact 28mm M-mount lens (which will be used on my CLE too)
3) +1 for an updated R-D1 with Foveon sensor (APS-C) or FF CMOS sensor (I like Spicy's idea of buying cheaply leftover sensors from D700s and cramming them in Bessa/ R-D1 bodies!)

Haven't revisited this thread in a while but since switching to Canon for DSLRs it occurred to me that an EOS-mount version of the 58/1.4 SL II Nokton would be great! Every other SL II lens is available in both mounts - why not the 58mm?

I am still waiting after all these years, for a new batch of wide angle accessories with the spirit level, hoping that this time, the spirit will not be evaporating.

A simple full frame manual + aperture priority m mount rangefinder with a screen that shows just the histogram and settings (I don't want to chimp when shooting). Usable iso 1600. Minimal features and no "trick modes" such as retro film simulations (these can be done in post), DNG files. Does that sound a bit like an M8 with a bigger sensor?
