Maybe I'm jumping on the bandwagon here but I'm amazed at the lack of detail and the amount of noise in the bridge shot (at iso 400!!!). I got better results shooting my 5D at night back in 2006. All I can think is maybe Barney couldn't hand-hold the shot and way underexposed and then tried to compensate in post.

I would have to think that if it would have been correctly exposed in-camera the results would have been better...right???

HBowman: Guys... do not get that excited. Sigma work with HOYA. Most of the glass used by Sigma come from HOYA. This is simply Hoya technology under SIGMA branding.

Just have a look 5 news lower and try to find difference (apart marketing speach).

What's wrong with that...Hoya make great filters.

Clint Dunn: So...until VERY recently the industry didn't even have a standard for 4k. $5000 TV's sold just a year ago (and to this day) are not even HDCP 2.2 compliant and now the industry wants to throw 8k on us?? 8k will be the next 3D...nobody needs it and fewer will want it.

@Greenarcher - I would rather watch a high quality Blu Ray with uncompressed audio and a solid 1080P picture with a good bit rate then a highly compressed 4K feed from a torrent. Just because it's 4k doesn't mean it's better. In the world of digital compresion kills quality. I've yet to see a full size uncompressed 4K torrent but maybe I just don't know where to look:)

RedFox, you're almost certainly wrong. Any of the 'cheap' 4K TV's I've seen are missing HDCP 2.2 compliance which means they will be useless when Cable companies and Blu Rays actually offer 4K.

Which leads me to my next point...cable companies and Blu Ray don't offer 4k....and to be honest I rather they didn't. I would far rather they focussed on high quality audio (Dolby True HD as an example) instead of higly compressed 5.1 Digital. Of course Blu Ray has the high quality audio but Net Flix, Cable, Apple Tv etc do not. Also, Apple only just recently released the new Apple TV and they didn't even bother with 4K. I realize we are headed to 4k but V-E-R-Y slowly. Do you think that when the masses finally get on board with 4K (maybe 10 years from now) that they will want to buy 8K?? I don't.

Cjar: Apparently wedding photography is about the photographer's wants and the bride and groom are props.

Did you ever think that the clients choose this guy specifically for his style?? Anyone getting married looks at the portfolio of the prospective photographer and picks a style they like.

In reply to:

Tim C.: When a 12k Leica camera lags behind in sensor performance compared to class leading competitors such as Canon, Nikon, and Sony, it is going to be a tough sell.

People don't buy cameras on the basis of just sensor performance, if that was the case Sony would be the only company selling cameras.

My M240 sensor is excellent, although not as good as the current Sony offerings. However, just about everything else I prefer with my Leica over a Sony.

4054: Curious, anybody tried adapted on an A7RII? If so, how are the corners?

No, haven't tried it but I expect it would work perfectly fine on the A7R2. It's lenses that are designed to sit close to the sensor/film plane (W/A rangefinder lenses) that are usually the problem.

On photo VIKING CHURCH in the Places of worship in a non-urban setting challenge (16 comments in total)

There are a lot of great elements to this photo, from the sky, to the church, to the mountains....and perhaps that is why it won. That said, I don't understand why so many people insist on such garish, overdone processing. I guarantee you if I had the original file I could have made something so much better then this. Great photo, absolutely horrid processing.

ZoranHR: One more million dollar lens for Sony.

ZoranHR - Speak for yourself, I would rather be able to buy high quality glass then cheap middle of the road any day. If you want cheap glass you already have lots of options...there are a tonne of used legacy Canikon/Pentax/Etc manual lenses out there that will cost you next to nothing.

In reply to:

Babka08: Canon releases the M10 (four years late), and Sony is evolving its Leica killer already. Canon owns the lens market for sure, but Sony is the innovator in cameras.

Leica killer?? I would rather own a Leica Q then this Sony RX1R. The Sony is great but for me it's just too small, the Leica is perfect size with much better ergonomics IMO. The only thing I like better about the RX1R is the 35mm focal length instead of Leica's 28mm.

Can't pay to play...then go shoot something else. $1500 for a 21mm 1.8 of this quality isn't that bad...the Leica 21mm Summilux is $6700.

In reply to:

Introverted Pirate: Way over-processed in my humble opinion. In my eyes I saw the result of someone tweaking those sliders in LR instead of a cool surfing photo. The capture is great though!

I agree with you...pic looks too overcooked...that said it definitely looks better at full size then the smaller downsized pic you see above.

Bernard Carns: So what was your first and last digital camera?
Mine:
First: Casio QV-10
Last: Blackmagic BMPC 4k
BC

First digital camera was some junkie P&S around 2003, first serious one was the Canon 20D in 2004. Last camera was a Leica M240....or iPhone 6 if you want to call that a camera.

LFPCPH: Data sheets on all the lenses can be found on Cosinas site via the link below. The data sheets does not say “Made in Japan” but they are marked with Cosinas logo and they do not say “Made in Germany” neither.

http://www.cosina.co.jp/seihin/cz/milvus.html

What's with people's fascination with whether or not Zeiss lenses are made in Germany or Japan?? I've been shooting various Zeiss ZM lenses on my Leicas for the last 5 years and they are of excellent quality. Yes, I know they are made by Cosina in Japan...and no, I do not care.

On article Fujifilm X100T successor rumored to feature new lens (334 comments in total)
In reply to:

Evil_Sheep: What I think would be awesome is instead of a new fixed focal length that someone will always be unhappy with, they just give us the camera with a detachable lens in X-mount, provided "as-is." The camera would be built around the attached lens and only the attached lens would be officially supported, but if you wanted to stick on other lenses you would have that option. It wouldn't cost anyone anything but simply offer more options and versatility.

It would make a lot of sense on Fuji's part as well, as they could drum up more lens sales that way and potentially have a wider market for would-be X100 purchasers.

????? You mean an X-Pro2??
The whole concept of the X100 is it's a fixed lens camera....

What an ignorant statement. Yes, keep your head buried in the sand and maybe you'll see even better.

mailman88: What!....You mean I can't shoot 6400ISO and print 13x19 with my 7D?
The myth is broken....I can, and I sell the prints too.

Mailman88 - It had nothing to do with my noise reduction skills....I rarely even use noise reduction anymore. If you're happy with the 7D then great....but once you use something with a better sensor it's hard to go back.

Really?? I was hugely disappointed with the mushy files out of my 7D and sold it within a year of buying it. The 7D from an ergonomics POV is a great camera....huge step up from say a 5D2, but the image quality is average at best.
