    Default Info of Q 08 wide zoom

    http://www.ricoh-imaging.co.jp/japan...ses/index.html

    17mm-27mm f3.7-4

    17mm 135 format eq is very wide.
    looks promising as a street and landscape lens.

    why not just make constant f4. f3.7 looks strange.

    it they make 17-28mm f4, then it looks better.

    If 08 is slightly wider, a little more at 12 or 14mm (35equivalent), then sui sui liao.

    But 17mm (135 eq) is already very wide.
    Thats about 11.5mm (ie. 10mm turn a little bit) on a Sigma 10-20mm on aps-c for example.
    And no other advanced pns goes this wide.

    I doubt its easy to make even wider with too many compromises to the edges due to the very small flange distance of the Q-system.

    For me, its good to see the Q system grow with another new lens.
    Hopefully, they will follow up with the tele macro.

    You mean 17mm (135eq) , sorry, I did not understand (135 eq) , I thought was a typo error for (35eq), what is 135eq ?
    11.5mm on Sigma is excellent , sui sui liao !

    Same lah!
    I meant 135mm film format.

    But, yeah, its as wide as what we'd get with Sigma 10-20 at 11.5mm setting on K5 for example.
