On Sony Alpha a7 II Review preview (302 comments in total)
In reply to:

DenisBBergeron: How Sony Camera sensor can be worst than Nikon or Canon sensors ? Sony make sensors for both !

It doesn't get any truer the more often that myth is repeated. Lossy compression may cause slight degradation in extreme cases, but gets blown way out or proportion in the review and these comments.

On Sony Alpha a7 II Review preview (302 comments in total)

The different scores in image quality compared to D750 seems to be blown way out of proportion by DPR. Besides, the 6D has higher scores than the A7II which totally contradicts what the review text says.

Eleson: "The taller, USB 3.0 port means you can get data off the camera faster but it leaves no room for the headphone socket featured on the EOS 5D III."

Are you implying that that the lack of headphones jack is due to lack of real estate?
Why not be honest and say that is was left of for market positioning?

SmilerGrogan: Now that this camera has such a sophisticated metering system why can't Canon engineers change the sensitivity of individual areas of the sensor in response to the light on the scene? In other words, why can't they raise the ISO in the shadowy areas of the scene, lower it for the highlights. That would get rid of the need for HDR and make all the high-dynamic range people happy.

The metering system tries to make each area of the image 18% grey. If you adjust sensitivity in different parts of the image according to their brightness, all you'd get is a 18% grey image.

LMCasey: It really is too bad that Canon did not take the opportunity to also improve DR of their sensor. I guess this is a stopgap.

They confused DR and noise - instead of lower noise and higher DR they created it the other way round.

In reply to:

Rick Knepper: It was improved, relatively speaking. A sensor with twice the pixels has the same DR as the 5D3 = improved.

No doubt the technology has improved - Canon is now capable to cut 7D sensors the right way and glue them together to fill a full frame area.

Dr. Leonard: Pixel density the same as the 7D so expect noise at high (1600) ISO. Not terrible if one uses noise reduction but it is a truism that noise degrades images and noise reduction gives you degraded images with less noise. The new (and more expensive) Pentax 645Z has about the same MP but with a larger sensor. Samples I've seen are impressive with their low noise.

Canon's sensor technology has vastly improved.... Canon is now able to cut 7D sensors and glue them together in exactly the right way to fill a full frame area.

Bhima78: Mind boggled that the A7 II wins over the D750. Even though I have fully converted to mirrorless, if I had to buy a high end ILC, i'd get the one that actually has an amazing native lens library. Taken as a system, the D750 is leagues better.

It is "best product of 2014" not "what is your favorite system".

On Samyang launches 135mm f/2.0 lens for stills and video article (150 comments in total)
In reply to:

mpgxsvcd: The point of this lens is that it is supposed to be a high quality lens without a high quality price. There is no way of knowing if it really is a high quality lens yet. However, its price does look attractive. For movie shooters manual control is all they need.

@helltormentor I doubt the Canon is better than the Sony Zeiss 135/1.8

On Not dead yet: Sony announces three A-mount lenses article (123 comments in total)
In reply to:

steelhead3: The lens is G rated...higher than the Zeisses.

Sony usually uses a G branding for zooms and the Zeiss branding for primes. Look at their latest investor relations presentation, it is explained there. Both are high quality brandings, and you can't make assumptions about one or the other being of higher quality.

AngryCorgi: Wait...I thought they closed their studio! Someone step on this slug and put it out of it's misery. Hassleblad has become a total joke.

Yes the design studio is closed - they found that asking the cleaning lady to design the camera will give them exactly the same result as asking the design studio. We may still see more of this stuff!

jtan163: Oly and Sony's partner ship pays off for Sony.
This will be a total monster for adapting lenses.
When the A7sII comes out it will be an even more incredible video camera.

@mister_roboto: you can probably also tell us that an Airbus is a Boeing design, right? They basically look the same after all.

ZoranHR: Big attention this camera gets. I would like Sony system continue to improve,there is a space. So far I m not interested.
Battery life is poor. Also I would like to have an oportunity and see how it feels in hand with some proper glass. I m afraid FF lenses are heavy and whole package is akward to hold. But that I would have to see.

So you are telling us you do not buy an otherwise great camera because of what you call poor battery life? Seriously? You do know that batteries are exchangeable and cost next to nothing, right?

In reply to:

topstuff: So this has the IQ of a Nikon D750 in a much smaller package and a great EVF.

Whats not to like?

If Sony expand the lens range ( a fast 35mm prime please ) this would be perfect.

I wish my D810 had an EVF. Maybe the 2nd generation A7 is the answer.

I think the A7 was always worth waiting for the 2nd generation.

Isn't the Zeiss Loxia 35mm F2 fast enough?

dbo: Why is it mandatory to be a pro photographer?

I am advanced enthusiast, owning A900/A99/A7R/A7S and all G/Z lenses except 35G/70300G/500G.
Not enough to be recognized as a support-worthy customer. Unbelievable.

F..k o.f, Sony...
