That's perfect for events. I hate when i used a 24-7O on receptions and accidentally shoot at 24 which i don't like because of distortion. Plus it's f2?? Wow.

I doubt this lens will ever see the light of day. Look how huge the Sigma 24-35 f/2 is, this would have a much larger range. It would no doubt be huge, expensive, and not practical if it were ever released. Kinda like the Mitakon 135 f/1.4 which isn't a practical lens to use, this would be the same.

I was thinking about this the other day....and it might work if Sony is willing to go the route of the 28 f2 and leave distortion corrections and maybe even some CA to the software side of things rather than building it into the optical design. That would be a worthwhile trade-off for what would be an extremely versatile lens.

we dont really know till it's built, those were both built with long flange distance in mind for universal canikon fit

OK, here's my very first, and very short first flight with my new Phantom 3 Standard quad copter. The sky was very clean thanks to the rain yesterday and there was no wind, at least not yet. A couple of observations from my 'maiden' flight...

I didn't realize it but apparently my gimbal needs to be leveled as evident in the video. It only looks tilted when facing west though so maybe it's just the natural slope. I need to practice my panning and tilting to be slow and smooth. I think the 'juddering' as the copter rotates is caused by the compression when I rendered it out. I shot at 2.7k and rendered at 2740 x 1520 or 1520p. It will be interesting to see how YouTube processes this file...

Looks like the video has been downsampled to 1080p by YouTube.

I'm very impressed by how rock solid the video is when the copter is stationary. I can see lots of possibilities for still images because of this.

Cool, now you can spy your neighbors :P

Is this a drone with built in camera or did you use your own??

Exactly. The FE55 for example is smaller than canikon 50 1.8 lenses and is superb. Predictions on sizes of a 28-70 are just guesses at this point. Also if it was larger but still smaller than say an adapted canon 24-70 ii it would still be appealing to many

Thats awesome.

I've been thinking about a drone for a while, but had a try of a friends one and it was just unflyable and it kind of put me off.

I would imagine there is a big difference in the quality of the drone and how well it flies. His one was not the cheapest by any means, but nothing like the Phantom one you have.

Cool video and something I would like to look at again, but would really need to have a look at flying one first :)

Really cool Gene. I really want a drone for stills. One thing about trying to shoot around the city is that its very hard to get a good vantage point. Would awesome to be able to fly the camera to whatever vantage point with a drone.

It's significantly larger/heavier actually. But considering the level of build and optical quality, you could consider it to be operating in an entirely different level than the budget 50s from canikon.

Is this a drone with built in camera or did you use your own??

Thanks everyone. The copter comes with the camera and gimbal already attached. If you got the Pro version, it would be able to shoot in 4k. The Standard and Advanced go as high as 2.7k which is fine with me. All three models shoot stills at 12mp.

The good news for me is that this drone pretty much flies by itself. In that video of mine, I used 'auto takeoff' and then 'autoland'. Of course, I want to get practice at being able to take off and land manually but this thing is just so stable, it's amazing. It also has modes like 'course lock' so that the copter flies a set course past an object while you rotate it and the camera to keep the object in the frame as you do the fly by. It has a 'follow me' mode and a 'point of interest' mode where you can select an object and have the copter circle it while keeping the camera turned into the center of the circle the whole time.

I highly recommend checking out some of the videos on YouTube to see just what is possible with these drones today.

I have a friend who happens to have the same as your drone Gene and I was able to work with him for a project. This was his first paid gig with the drone and this video is not yet final.
