BigOne: No wooden grip? That's not a real Hasselblad!
Too bad they left it out... that would've made it a Stellar camera!
BobYIL: Canon 5DS R with 17, 24, 45 and 90mm TS-E lenses still cost a fraction of this 100MP back..
Probably. But does this exact model have shift movement for panoramas w/o parallax error? (That was the reason for mentioning the tilt-shift lenses at all.) I think none of the above 3 available lenses have this feature.
But anyway, these are different products for different purposes, so they can be compared only to a certain extent.
Sensor-wise: yes, there IS a difference (although it has its price :) )
I think BobYIL was referring to the possibility to stitch shifted some images with TS lenses... and for some controllable scenarios that can be comparable maybe we can admit.(Btw for this purpose D750 won't work w/ the nice Canon ts-e lineup - but Sony maybe).
Obviously if you photograph something else (like anything moving) then you can start comparing RR to Ford of course, as you said.
Yanko Kitanov: Why so few low ISO samples and so many ISO400 and ISO800 samples shot at lightning conditions allowing to freely use a lower ISO..The camera is looking good.
Wow, haven't noticed this feature yet on Fuji cameras. Is this something like Canon's Highlight Tone Priority (just with heavier pull of shadows for DR400 for example?)
This may be the cause why some samples seem to be exposed to the highlights? How the raw headroom feels with Fuji cameras in general btw? Thanks!
Rishi Sanyal: Have any of our readers spotted any samples elsewhere showing F22 sunbursts from this lens? The Canon 24-70 F2.8L II sets an impossibly high bar for sunstar rendition, which'll be important to landscape shooters considering this lens.
@Horshack: this can be subjective to a degree but for most scenarios I find the "double ray" sunstars distracting.For that certain picture you linked it is quite good I think! However for a distant horizon sunstar it wouldn't suit that well I guess.Here is Rishi's earlier example (I think it is (c) :) )http://www.dpreview.com/files/p/articles/3179047006/RishiSanyal-RedTulipSunrise.jpegAnyway, the 14-24 remains a benchmark with or without sunstars.
@FastGlassLover: we agree on 8 point sunstars I think :)
This is one aspect I also like about Canon lenses.
Nikon's 14-24 may be a benchmark for sharpness for example but its sunstars are not that attractive (while the Canon wide angles' are).
I found it surprising but even Canon's 18-135 stm has quite nice stars in this regard (OK, not *that* nice but for the average shooters - like me - is plenty enough :) )
role_of_72: The one funny thing I see in common on most Sony FE lenses is the tube coming from the bayonet to correct the (short) flange distance to approximately DSLR levels, and then comes the actual lens :)
So you have a smaller camera body but if you carry 4 lenses with you as well then you carry that 4 additional tubes... what a great way to save space! (no :) )
No offense, it just came to my mind... sure they will be fantastic lenses.
Yepp, I guess we agree. ;)
You can't really be that naive that the obvious afterthought of fitting in a FF sensor behind a small diameter bayonet isn't going to affect lens designs.
Can be the case... but then it is barely smaller than a dslr setup again. Anyway, we know that in most cases quality glass cannot be that small. :)
Probably, but I'm not 100% sure. At least the tele lens does not have (look at the extender designs).

D200_4me: Small body, large lenses ;-)
Well, it depends on the subjective perception of what 'substantial' means :))
ZeneticX: $1000 is still cheaper than the recently announced PEN-F and X-Pro2.... go figure
Yepp, but don't forget that those models have good native lens lineups to choose from.
vinrouge0: Lower resolution than expected but more than enough in reality. Lack of IBIS is a disappointment though many will disagree
Maybe there will be a (bigger?) a7xxx model, too, for the IBIS.
Well.. great I guess! I'll be curious what reviews say.
((( And some lenses pls :) )))
Swingline: I guess pros don't need HDR video like that offered by the top Canon Rebel, is it 6s?
According to Digitalrev's review the HDR video output of the 760D is softer than the non-HDR one so I doubt it is *that* useful for professional use.
However, I don't know if this can be eliminated with the greater computing power of this camera.
naththo: Think this one will do much better in noise wise than 5DRS with less resolution. Who needs ISO over 51200? lol Silly! Rarely use high ISO above 12800 these day I do use. That is a high end camera, not mid end.
Maybe not for everyday use but clean high ISO can help in some creative ideas (my first thought is moonlit portraiture for example - that would be great!).
So it is not silly I think.
Timbukto: I thought the first image was a fancy optical adjustment bench. But it's just hand sanitizer station. I think Chipotle needs some of those.
Also why on earth would anyone need to unbox a unit to QC vs just QC prior to boxing? Shady boxing workers? Or just nonsensical workflow?
Yes, probably. :)
This kind of 'out of the box' audit is a well-established manner to check the *whole* quality system of the factory. In this way the quality operators can check the product with the eye of the customer and this is the key here!
At this unboxing check 0 (zero, no, none) error is acceptable because in the other 90% of cases (1 out of 10, you know) the faults would be noticed by the customer.
I can understand that you may never heard about it as it is used only for products where safety and quality is first (like critical IT infrastructure or high value products - seen here ;) )
I was an engineer in such an environment for years and could not agree more with this attitude to quality!
Btw Japan is known for its good quality products anyway so all you can do is to say thanks to them carrying out all these quality steps. ;)
Great insight and beautiful cameras & lenses!Thank you for sharing!
