The Davinator: The best sensor maker keeps getting better.

@ HowaboutRAW

"DXO sensors scores are next to useless."

And your opinion is the touchstone we shall live by. Correct?

At least they present data to back what they say. You on the other hand, all talk.

"The D4S is a better high ISO camera than the A7S, and the A7S is very good like the Df. "

According to dxomark, A7s is better sensor than D4s at low light.

tkbslc: Since I am sure someone will say it is too expensive, how much is a high-grade 21mm f1.9 for FF?

@LabD, "21 is a good deal wider than 24mm.
See, you learned something!"

And there was a time you thought 28mm is same as 24mm :-D
After I taught you that 24mm is wider than 28mm, you have surely come a long way.

:-D :-D :-D

In reply to:

Eugene232: don't understand all buzz about this camera.
I had an EPL5 which has a the same outdated sensor,
IQ is a mediocre

@Thorgrem (2 hours ago)
" A lesson to learn for people like Eugene232. But according to his gear list he only has a camera and no lenses. The nice thing is that you can see the nice big sensor all the time without a lens in front of it.."

So as far as you are concerned people only own what they mention in their gearlist. Correct?

You are very smart and have excellent judgement of things.

In reply to:

J A C S: The high resolution image is awful. It is very bad even downsized to 16mp, forget about 64mp. Low contrast and poor detail, full of artifacts, very noisy in a "digital way", poor colors, etc.

on top of that the crowd that always sung that 16mp is enough going gaga over it is amusing.

In reply to:

Jim Salvas: It's amazing how these cameras get slammed for "only" having 16mp when the Nikon D4s has the same resolution. Sure, it has tremendous dynamic range an low light capability, but in good light there's not that much difference in what you can put on paper.

"It's not just compared to "peers in the same class." It regularly gets compared to cameras costing twice or three times as much"

And sadly bettered by cameras like A6000 that cost almost half.

:-D

dcolak: My NEX7 paired with SEL 50mm f1.8 or Sigma 60mm gives MUCH BETTER images. Sharper, less CA, nicer colors.

What´s going on here?

And why does high ISO image of FF A7II look no better than those I get from my NEX7?

Isn't FF supposed to be much much better than APS-C?!

@Rishi, Happy Holi.

bluevellet: While nice to have this format, DPR's priorities are strange.

They've already reviewed this camera, why waste 3 days to sort of re-review it again? They have a backlog of written reviews to finish. Get back to the office for some real work. :)

Another jealous fanboy ranting cos his fav brand didn't get attention.

quezra: I am glad this DPR article achieved its main objective, which was to make the anti-Sony trolls melt down and nerd rage about having a Sony camera get praise, knowing 99% of the people watching it won't read their butbut complaints but just be impressed by the video. Good job! :D

We know the usual suspects from not-so-small-as-pentax-q brand.

In reply to:

pew pew: some people complain about slow aperture lenses, when sony makes fast lenses the same people complain about the lens size, kinda funny, personalty I´m happy with these new lenses, more lens the better.

@tkbslc , big is relative word. Could you post an example of another FF system that has smaller lenses than this?

Direct link | Posted on Feb 14, 2015 at 12:58 UTC
In reply to:

tkbslc: If it's going to be the size of a D750 with the lenses included, then just get the D750!

Got that dslr now how do i use my pentax ff lenses on it???

In reply to:

kodos: The more I see how the lens situation is panning out the more glad I am that I went Micro 43rds (for my shooting style/subjects). The lenses are huge on FF Mirrorless. Though I am sometimes wondering if the Fuji mirrorless system might have been a good compromise instead. But I love my little Olympus bodies and lenses.

I think I'd rather get a FF DSLR system as a complement to my M43 setup, and have the best of both worlds when I need it.

But for those who love FF Mirrorless, I am glad that Sony is about to unleash some more lenses! It was the primary thing holding me back from pulling the trigger.

Have you tried pentax Q, it is even smaller than m43. You would love it based on your comment.

On 3,200MP LSST camera gets construction approval article (257 comments in total)
In reply to:

Marty4650: I was really tempted to get one, as my walk around carry camera, until I realized it might be too big to fit into my jeans pocket. And that is a real deal breaker for me.

I will just wait for the rumored iPhone7 with the 4 gigapixel sensor.

It's just like the old saying...

"The best telescope is the one you have with you."

not only that , it does not have enough lenses in the system. Even if it was pocketable, it is useless as it does not have 50 odd lenses for it.

In reply to:

halfwaythere: Its pretty sad that even dpr has succumbed to the " low ISO dynamic range matters above all" theory.

I think most enthusiast FF users are using these bodies for their low light, high ISO, superiority. I don't get how is the A7 recommended above the 6D since the latter has access to the most comprehensive system while the former is, basically, a cheap mirrorless camera that happens to have a FF sensor.

" It won't be long before the FE mount goes out of fashion because that's what Sony does. "

So basically now you use some maker who has never abandoned a lens mount. That would be pentax if takumar is not considered to be a mount.

@dark goob, so switch on and fire is how you take photo. In my world, think compose and shoot give me plenty of time for camera to start up in between. If there is something to be taken in suddenly, you would miss half the time anyway. Or if something to be taken suddenly and i needed to keep camera ready since i shall not miss it, I am sure i will be done soon and i will be carrying extra battery. For 90% of photography startup time is good enough with modern cameras.

On Sony debuts 21MP stacked CMOS sensor for smartphones article (94 comments in total)
In reply to:

Jogger: Cant wait till they scale this up to 1-inch type. Imagine an RX10 with 24-200/f2.8 for Panasonic FZ1000 (24-400) with PDAF. Goodbye m43.

Large sensors would improve too. But for those the m43 provides good enough IQ for smaller sizes, this would catch them sooner than APC or FF.
For those who are buying cameras for size issues this would make more sense. Not all APC and FF buyers are after size, they are, many times, towards DOF

On Olympus OM-D E-M5 rumored to be out of production article (211 comments in total)
In reply to:

40daystogo: Dpreview is an review and real information site, whereas there are tons of rumor sites like sonyalpharumors.com, mirrorlessrumors.com, akin to others like macrumors.com

If Dpreview wants to start mixing rumor with fact, it should have a separate rumors section. It waters down the aura of credibility that Dpreview has so meticulously built up over the years.

I like reading rumors, but I go to rumor sites for that, where we know it is not fact. It's like reading a Celebrity Gossip Mag. Most of the stuff there is just made up.

may be they are just hinting that new camera is in pipeline.

beavertown: Nikon 1 is definitely finished.

@Richard "oh, but its f/1.8 so it must be better! Ya think?" --- A f1.8 lens can shoot at f2.8, f3.6 also. if you are comparing against f3.6 lens then i would guess the lens designed for f1.8 would be quite sharp at f3.6.
