  • Ok, let agree on something more likely than my 'conspiracy theory'. Most probably, those manufacturers are guided by some universal law of lens evolution and that's why their products are so ...
  • Not at all, just like the Canon will be f5.6 at 70mm.
  • At the beginning of 2008 Nikon announced their previous 16-85. In September 2009 you could buy the Canon 15-85. So they designed, tested, and globally launched the lens in a little over 1.5 years. ...
  • It's 2.8-5.6. Source: patent. But it doesn't matter anyways because 1. It's not EF-M. 2. It will be around f5 or lower at 50mm. 3. You can get the Sigma 17-70 for less than half the price, based on ...

    Of course it is if the concept of this camera is a high end mirrorless with special appeal to users of other systems. That's at least what that Sony guy claimed in the interview.

    You better hurry up then. Sentiment analysis is big money right now.

    "***In case you missed it: 'magnify' in playback now magnifies the AF point used at capture, rather than simply magnifying the center of the frame. No more scrolling over to the point of interest...

    Knowing Sony, I wouldn't be surprised if they instead chose to update all relevant lenses to make your rebuy them...

    You're late to the party. Look below.

    Actually I was rather skeptic about your claim's about the AF's greatness until I saw your videos. You can only benefit by putting these links into your article!

  • This one is easy. 2020 is the deadline for a serious Canon mirrorless because Tokyo Olympics. The Olympics have been regarded as a huge opportunity for camera makers to advertise their products. In ...
  • Lol, why are people talking about BSI all the time. The RX series had BSI sensors for several iterations. Going from a BSI sensor to another BSI sensor won't increase BSI-ness.

  • To be honest I expected a bigger visual difference. But on the other hand, I guess that's what you should expect.

  • I know this isn't what you want to hear but I'm going to say it anyways. Just get the SEL1018. The a6000 + SEL1018 will be better than ANY combination of a7r + cheap wide glass with maybe a few ...
  • You're welcome. The same trick can also be used if you feel that the EVF isn't giving you enough DR. Just decrease jpeg contrast or use a flat profile. It can be quite handy in backlit situations ...
