Write Canon on how quality control has no bearing on the camera you select.

Stitzer23: Why do the spots appear at certain f stops only? Its on the sensor after all. Appreciate any explanation please. Thanks.

It is like having permanent dust bunnies on your sensor, probably also lowering contrast and accenting flare.

I know Canon will get everything right for affected customers...my question is how this may play out with unreleased 5ds and whether the same set of problems may be present.

Papi61: "capable of firing off 125 6x6 frames per second"

What kind of magazine would that require for a 10-second burst? Not to mention a whole gallon of lubricating oil for the entire system to not grind to a halt after 2 seconds...

Japanese whale oil...I don't know if it is still used in Janpanese cameras, Nikon sure changed something.

On Sony SLT-A77 II Review preview (487 comments in total)
In reply to:

PedroMZ: is it just me , the studio tests seem to show that the A77 produces noticeably softer images than the Canon and the A6000 even at low iso? I am puzzled by DP reviewer's comments that the images are very good at low iso,they certainly do not appear to be close to that of the above mentioned cameras. Just take a look at the Raws at iso 800. The A6000 beats it hands down. Either that or I need an optician's appointment.

DP is blaming the lens used for the test

Bragging that these are able to use the 4d tracking of the crop sensor 77II is a joke. Where is the 99II? We all know it is coming, throw us a bone Sony and keep the A mount alive, so people will have confidence to buy these overpriced lenses.

Thunder123: It seems once again DPReview screwed up the studio comparison tests, looking at Imagining Resources tests they have a totally different result.

http://www.imaging-resource.com/PRODS/sony-a77-ii/sony-a77-ii-image-quality.htm

Looks like DPReview left NR on High once again....

Could you explain why you used a lens that was known to be decentered (previously you mentioned that you were going to us a sigma 50 because of this). My ZA 50 is very good edge to edge, was the bad lens sent to sony (whoever fixes it now?) for a fix?

pkvman13: There is a promo video linked to on photorumors.com of these being used on a A7 series body. Why does all the specs, including on B&H/Adorama listings, plus the images of the lens itself clearly say E-mount?

Because it is an E mount?

On Sony SLT-A77 II Review preview (487 comments in total)

Glancing through the review and especially on autofocus, I must of missed the setting of speed of focus (1-5) and how it affects tracking. Many of your scenarios depend on this setting for jumpiness (word?)

Though the difference with Trey, it is choice to use hdr.

In reply to:

Joed700: I read about this issue on one of those product reviews from either B&H photos or Adorama, and I thought the guy just had a bad sample. Good thing I didn't rush into getting one. Anyhow, with the recent recall of the D600, D750, and now the 300mm PF, I think Nikon's got some serious issues with the quality control and their upper management. I've been a Nikon user almost forever, but I see that the quality of their products have been going down hill since the release of the D300 and D700. What's wrong with you, Nikon?

Do you guys think that the low mass of the 300 is showing this problem more than a normal weight lens. Everyone complains about the 7r shutter but I wouldn't be surprised that its low mass just accents shake.

Barney, do you have any thoughts or reasons why Tamron refuses to give a choice to Sony users on VC?
