MarkByland: I think the accuracy of the D750 is the information to glean from this video. The A7 seems relatively soft in all the shots. Also Using a D21 focus point array in low light is photo suicide for any action like live bands. Spot metering is the only way to fly, and using of AF point selection during key anticipated moments.
I have used the Sigma 50/1.4 EXTENSIVELY when shooting live bands with a Pentax K-5, traditionally, not much of a low light focus performer. Average 9/10 in focus, properly exposed for the scene, and never hunted.
Then, there's manual focus. In which I prefer to trust over any AF mechanism. It worked for decades and still does. Long live the OVF and turning the hand slightly for better shots.
"people limit themselves and deal with inferiority for the sake of loyalty that is both one sided and unappreciated by the companies."
Oh, so dumping gear every time a new super higher mega wonder pixel device made by a company that sells Refrigerators, Washers and Dryers & Playstation is the answer?
I am not a devoted consumer of new products. I continue to shoot what I know and trust and will not be brainwashed about EVFs and pixel density in the process.
"That kind of misplaced faithfulness is not in an individual's best interests and it can hinder progress."
An individual's progress is measured by how many megapixels they have?
I stopped coming to DPR a year ago but kept my account. It is because of threads like this that I don't come her any longer. It is impossible to say any thing without people going batsh*t fanboi on a person.
And as primeshooter mentioned, confirmation of said focus is, well, in the comment above.
Attack him next. I'm done with this chat. Good day!
I guess if you are unable to see the differences in the video on a 21" screen at full res then I am the one who is wrong?
Awesome circular logic there, MeganV! Equally as entertaining is your reasoning.
And if any one's dedication is to self-preservation and their wallet, then why dump all your gear and move to another manufacturer when Nikon will be delivering an equivalent or better machine in a year or two?
The sony sensor resolution ball keeps getting passed around from manufacturer to manufacturer. Every one gets to play with it for a while until Sony develops a new sensor for their cameras, and then, subsequently adapts that technology for other companies. Nikon rolled it out first, then Sony, then Pentax, then Canon.
Rinse and Repeat. Pull your wallet out again for the next resolution jump that every one just has to have.
@fatdeeman - I was born with 20/10 eyes. There is a distinct different in the video. Based upon edge highlights of hairs. The D750 is accurate, while the Sony looked softer. There is a crispness in those shots that the sony didn't have upon showing the individual shots from the Sony.
After all the years of people RAVING about Nikon's low light performance and now suddenly it gets trashed over Sony?
I can't believe how many brand-t̶r̶a̶i̶t̶o̶r̶s̶ switchers there are!
Seeing how Sony is pushing for total world domination in the electronics world, I may pre-order my new smart refrigerator because I'm sure it will keep my food colder, better, and tell my phone/watch/laptop it is doing so at the time.
Also, Playstation XXVII coming soon!

Sweet. I'd love to load Whistler up and test the suspension. That's where the lightweight Photosport 200 AW fell a little short. Love the pack, hate the shoulder straps.
davids8560: What I want to know is, can any DSLR take a shot like this?
Updated two days ago. Waiting for the update that actually allows me to start the app to run it. It acts like it wants to run for about 5 seconds and then shuts back down.
Hoping Lr6 will just automatically be what the CC members are allowed to install.
Failed roll out AFIAC.
MarkByland: While working for a camera shop in Peoria, IL, a guy from RedBull walked in one day and wanted to look at the new Tamron 24-70/2.8. He said he had heard good things. Toting a 1Dx, he puts the lens on and we head outside for a few test shots, tracking focus ability and such. Upon him pixel peeping, I see some raised eyebrows. He is impressed.
He asked if we had VII of the Canon 24-70/2.8L and we did not. Off to another local higher-end dealership he went to test the lens. I even called them for him to see if they had it in stock. About 45 minutes later he came back and picked up the Tamron ...

lacikuss: Maybe this new d7200 is almost at the 70d level?
For short exposure time-lapse, the D7100 built-in intervelometer is pretty key. The ergonomics of the camera, itself, lend to a much more comfortable handling for long shoots. I always found myself needing to apply extra pressure to my 40D & 50D when trying to hold the camera in a relaxed position. I like front and rear selection dials, and the ability to program them to my liking.
I also like less noise and incredible shadow detail retention. Maybe add over 50 years of legacy lens support on one body. I dunno, same output image size as the D610 isn't bad, either at 6000x4000.
Just a few reasons why I switched from Canon.
I absolutely love my D7100. Love. It. My only complaint has been the buffer at 6 RAW. But, even then, changing shooting from 'spray and pray' to more accurate, thoughtful, anticipated capturing has been the work around and I really have no problems with it.
However, my burning question about the D7200 is 'why the lack of metering for non CPU lenses?' I saw this as a feature point some where today and it had me wondering why they would drop such a crucial advantage feature like that. 8/10 lenses I own are manual focus primes.
I brag to people about its manual focus accuracy when it comes to confirmation in manual mode. Even in terrible bar/club lighting conditions, shooting bands. It nails it every. single. time.
So, does the D7100 eliminate that feature of enabling the contrast detectors during manual focus operation? Or it is just not metering due to some other subtraction like the aperture linkage tab (proper name?)
When the 70D finally reaches the 24MP mark, yes.
Here's the token 'When will they figure out how to cut prices in half?' comment.
Phil4All Photography: "These will be the best cameras ever made. See you again in 2022"
Ha! Until 2016 rolls around and some one drops the next increment of über ridiculous resolution sensor on the market and makes the same claim.
I'm having flashbacks to the 36MP announcement ...
montxsuz: CP+ 2015: Nikon shows off ... nothing
They're busy waiting for every one to catch up ...
Sort of false representation taking 100 photographs, stitching them together, and presenting them as some thing that would come straight out of camera. Why not do side-by-side 1:1 series taken from a MkIII? Or, wait, a D810? Show us what you've got, not what can be done with major digital processing.
Also, does this 5Ds R come with a free, multiple terabyte, cloud based storage account?
I loved my Sigma 15-30 with the exception of the push-pull MF/Af switching and that silly filter ring/hood. It seemed to cause a ton of Vignette at 15-17mm even with super low profile filters. That said, this would be a nice addition at f/2.8.
What!?!?! Why!?!? Who the hell has that kind of money to p*ss away on some thing they can trot themselves out to the desert and make on their own? This country ...
Bring on the volcanoes and asteroids.
