In reply to:

Scrozzy: Do the DPR staff draw straws on who gets to review Canon or Nikon DSLRs? The guy with the shortest straw has to the do the review, yes?

It seems you guys are damned if you do and damned if you don't when it comes to reviewing this sort of kit.

Thanks for the review anyway. I appreciate something this comprehensive takes a lot of time, and I understand you're reviewing the camera as a whole and not just the sensor. Unlike some.

Merry Christmas.

Then you need some fresh coffee !! wake up !

jonrobertp: So, can I use the live view to get faster more accurate AF in a very dim room ? (vs OVF )
Today's report on dpr seems to suggest that to me...since it'll go to f11 . I'm talking about stills.

DPR...is that right ?? thx.

thanks, pretty much answers my question.

Thanks guys. Looks very interesting...esp. for low light work. Now if the price is decent....that may make or break it for ppl like me.

Go to FF ? Nope. You lose too much lens reach w your longer lenses. And then wt. & cost. For a lighter more $/wt. efficiency...this lens is a very good addition to a shooter doing much low light shooting.

In reply to:

ballwin12: Someone may move back to DX because of this lens.. if it's good, of course.

Not switch. But ALL FF lenses are heavy, and with 1.5/6 crop this need be only one. Other crop lenses to be used are lighter & cheaper. So overall it's a better smaller lighter setup than going all FF. Cost...est. about 1400. IMO

Price $2,000. ...?

Even at 1500. it's one of a kind. And no need to go FF...where all your other lenses will be big, heavy, expensive. Only need this one to be uber-fast...and it sure is. Great for low light night events. ...like.

In reply to:

AbrasiveReducer: Tell me it's needle sharp in the corners at 24mm. Or even 28mm. Then I'm sold. Otherwise, these cameras are just too similar from one to the next. They do everything but play music but the corner image quality at wide angle is just not there. And I doubt that extending the zoom range will make things better. Brick walls are not my favorite subject but I still want a small camera that can handle them. It can be done. Perhaps not with a zoom but it can be done.

Tell me of any expensive 5x range zoom that's "needle" sharp at the wide end. There is none. Get a wide prime, and stop down to 5.6. Stop kidding yourself.
