bradleyg5: Seems like a pretty nice lens until you mentioned the price! 1500 dollars! Wow. You're telling me a Canon 70-200mm L F4 IS is worth less than that? Then people wonder why us trolls are bitter at Panasonic and Olympus.

Canon 70-200 f/4 IS is lower quality?!
In what way? Build? Optics?
It's one of the sharpest zooms in the universe.

qwertyasdf: YES!! What a blast! With Sony leading the show with the worlds first compact FF, Fuji x-e1, Sigma lenses (so looking forward to the 35 1.4), also Samyang bringing out (finally) a UWA for apsc.

And above all, we have witnessed the birth of history's fugliest camera - The Hassssselblad Luuuuuuuunar!!!!!!

Just thought of a new joke:
What's the difference between the Lunacy and the Nex7?
Well, the Lunacy is a Nex7 before circumcision, thus the animal skin.

A: I don't have those figures, but we have an attachment rate that's higher than one, definitely."

I cant read on anymore, I have to ROFL!

qwertyasdf: I'm gonna add a wide converter so that I could chop the soft corners/borders off to get a 35mm equivalent crop.

I really can't tell if the bottom part is OOF or plain soft?

In reply to:

jtan163: Sorry this is not intended as anti Leica - if it's anti anything its anti anti logic.
This sort of double think/double talk drives me insane.

"There were not really any complaints, but there were some little things. Fashion shooters wanted greater buffer size. Some people criticized the playback mode, so we added the joystick. This was one of the main complaints actually"

The first sentence, says there "were not really any complaints".
Three sentences later "...one of the main complaints...".

Fscking marketing people and suits.
Do they realise how how dumb they sound?

I have no idea how much a guy like this gets paid, but surely its a decent swedge and surely he should be able to string together 2 contiguous sentences without contradicting himself.

Still I'd love one of these bad boys, regardless.

My 5 year old nephew can tell a more convincing mistruth without crossing himself. Here endeth the rant, apologies, and I return you to your normal service.

Maybe English is not his native language.
He may find some fill in the blanks exercise useful:

"There were not really _ _ _ _ complaints ... so we added the joystick. This was one of the main complaints...."

Hint: fill in a 4 letter word.

In reply to:

Len_Gee: do you recommend keeping the camera image stablization on since the tripod might be a bit wobbley? Thinking of using it with either MFT or Sony RX100 cameras.

Probably adequate by using 10-sec timer, under not so windy conditions.
If it is till wobbling after 10 seconds, probably there's an earthquake

In reply to:

qwertyasdf: DPreview, does the ball head give a tight lock, for lets say a 5DII plus a 16-35mm?!?

I do not think this is pointless. For travelers that go out for a whole day and only look forward to use a tripod at night, this makes absolutely perfect sense. It's simply not worth it to carry a tripod for 8 hours to take a few shots at the end of the day.
For safety, I won't worry much, will the legs just snap and the camera crash to the ground?! Not a chance.
Wind?! Might be a problem, it's so thin and probably very aerodynamic anyways.
Needs a 10-sec timer to be steady? so be it.

I always think that CF tripods are way into the diminishing return territory, one hv to pay a lot for the rather small weight savings over alloy tripods.
If I use it once per day, I'll pay, but I use it once per year...

qwertyasdf: For GOD's sake, don't categorize lenses, there is no creative boundary to a lens, nothing's gonna stop me from using the 120-300mm for arts or the 35mm for sports!
It's is great news for Canon users, the 35L is old and not particularly excellent. Hope Sigma's can exceed the 35L at a lower cost!
And if the 120-300 has excellent optical quality, it could possibly become legandary, there's simply no competition.

Well, if Sigma tags the 35mm as art, silly people would still use it to take sports and complaint about the AF, because by definition, they are silly ;D

Samuel Dilworth: The new lenses are beautiful: modern, honest (love that serial number location), high-tech but approachable.

Little details like FEET spelt out rather than abbreviated to the unnecessary and unsanctioned FT are not lost on us. A lot of thought went into this design, and it shows.

May they perform as well as they look!

Pls
