A tiny prime for mirrorless cameras more of them please

Quite awesome. And it shows how much sense it makes to license the mount spec to third-party manufacturers.

And just $399!

Compact... Wide... Fast... Cheap... Am I the only one to think that there may be a gotcha in the IQ department because, well, of physics?

f2.8 is not amazingly fast, so I don't think there has to be a gotcha? And Samyang has some optical talent at work, the last few years (that started to show with the 135mm f2).
