    “It has a view angle of approximately 127.5 mm” – this is for fish-eye or like 16mm lens.
    “- Angle of view: 28.6 degrees” – this is looks more like a truth for 85mm.

    In fact, it is not a view angle but a range.
    Because of APS-C sensor, we have a 1.5x factor.
    The range of 85mm in Full Frame becomes 127.5mm in APS-C.

    Anyway, it is very expensive if it is only for APS-C.
    Some used Nikon 85mm f/1.4D can be found at 80.000 yens => and it works with full frame !

    I’m confused. Was this not the same lens that Sigma “announced” a few months ago? Is this just a re-announcement for Photokina 2010 or something?
