I think beyond 720p, there is really no way for our eyes to tell the difference 720p and 1080p on a 4.7 inch screen. At this point, I think it's just a marketing gimmick, although I may be wrong.
I really wish that DpReview will stop mentioning other camera brands (not just Nikon) when reviewing on a single product.It gets on my nerve that they are trying to compare Canon to Nikon, which I believe is completely off-topic. I don't care what D800 has (I bet D800 is a wonderful camera—it's just that I don't have any investment in Nikon as of the moment). If the title of the review is "Canon EOS 5D Mark III Review," then that's what I want, not some rivalry between two companies.Please DP Review, focus on a single product (and it's predecessor if applicable) but not on some other companies' merchandises.
I don't care about the Instagram... Just get rid of that stupid Timeline!!!
Tony Beach: I was floored by the price of the latest version of the Sigma 105/2.8 macro; I bought the older version last year for half as much and I'm very happy with it. Even though my A850 has image stabilization built in, I almost never use it, so I cannot imagine that added feature or any of the others justifying a $480 premium.
BTW, the old version is very good, and CA (presumably improved on the newer version) has not been a problem. My one peeve with the Sigma 105 has been its bokeh, which is not great, I'm not sure if that's improved with the newer version, but it's still a hard sell and the weight undermines one of the reasons I have made the switch to primes and bought the Sigma 105/2.8 in the first place.
Overall, I think the cons of this newer lens heavily outweigh its pros. I think DPR should have recommended the 90mm Tamron instead of this overpriced behemoth. Heck, for a little more weight and substantially less cash you could get the Tamron 180/3.5 macro.
I also have the 100mm f2.8L IS Macro. I don't see the point of getting the Sigma version for the same price.Plus, the L lens is equipped with hybrid IS, which is supposedly superior to any of the Sigma OS.
Wow! Very nice shot!
