M1963: Three articles on the Sony Alpha 7R II in four days. Not quite sure what to think of it.
and i see u here advertising only sony product without eve talking about photography. i not diminish sony product..actually i could even buy a sony alpha 7r used at cheap price, cause they sell for peanuts now and eBay is full of sony alpha 7 as it will be full of sony a7r2 in a year. the fact is that the bulk of sony sales are cheap camera and cheap lenses. they have always changing products who very few buy, sony alpha 900 for example. they are good camera but to say they change photography is plain b...t.
it can't be used with ball head...probably manfrotto only...sure not mine....it's interesting for video product but still too much expensive. edelkrone is very good but too much expensive for the product.
troll cause i not agree with you. u are a sony employees....spending time promoting sony product,...everybody here knows clearly this, cause u never post nothing about photo, no image taken with whatever camera, only entering any threat d where there is the sony word. don't understand why preview le you do this. clearly i know, sony pay they agree
so those who don't buy sony product,a re troll. the fact that is 10 years sony is considered to take the world with game changer camera, and still you not see any sony out there, or a very small %, must be a real pain for a sony employee like you. ahhh the fact that you remember me show clearly who works for who...you are another one paid by sony who is years advertising product here. i use any camera by the way pentax olympus panasonic fuji, any of the canikon, and i also consider buying a sony a7 for drone, photography. while you only troll and advertise sony product, clearly you are paid by sony and preview knows your position here very well.those who are in preview from here knows clearly the drift that the sita has taken since amazon took the ownership. the site is big and many works here, is clearly a needs to earn more money.
Suave: So you are telling me that for my regular AF-intensive situation, indoor sports, I should dump 5D3 + 70-200/2.8 (ISO3200+, at least 1/500, f/2.8) in favor of Sony solution, right? Because that's what the title seems to suggest.
the a72 for sport will and always be a ridiculous camera. this article is simply misleading.....the mirrorless experience will be always inferior to dslr to to the black of viewfinder, no way.dpreview receive a big chunk of dollar and advertise this camera. it's simply clear.they were a serious site, after amazon bought just an advertisement company.
preview has become only a money focused machine...sony pay a lot of money to desperately selle their camera.i still have to see around all those sony,despite sony claim they are destroying every brand....really i never saw a singly a7....the eBay is full of a7r that lose practically 70% of value after one year.....the video show that a7 is not on par with top or mediumdslr.
Totally copierò by edelkeone pocket rig... Also much more expensive than already expensive pocket rig.
jonny1976: those who says that this full frame full of megapixel rivals medium format really smoked something very very good.my pentax 645d with good glass is simply unbeatable even if megapixel are the same. noise at base iso, only canon lens can do a bit of justice to the sensor, but still not great clarity, and artifacts.there is still a big market for medium format producer
ll the lenses i have for 645 are good to very very good..stopped down are superbly perfect, not distortion no ca. the 75 2, and 55 2,8 are good even wide open.there is something that ccd sensor have compared to cmos that make me feel the 645d produce an image that is more deeper.
and you think this lens is tack sharp? i repeat take a 645d and shoot a 28 or the 20 and then compare to these sample. i see tons of ca with the 11-24...look the bridge sample. sure if you want ultra wide is the only solution but optically is not what i call tack sharp.
D200_4me: As soon as I saw the name of the photographer, I knew tons of negative comments were surely on their way. ;-) It seems people love to hate him just about as much as Ken Rockwell
i don't have nothing against the person...but when i read great photograph master of...makes me so laugh...i repeat it's loved by people who know nothing about real photography, and call him a travel photograph is an offence to serious and great travel photographer. this guy is the proof that middle talents and great marketing can lead to unknown results. i repeat there are people who pay 15000 euro for a workshop in venice, where taking photo is as easy as the easiest thing in the world, when a master of photography like harvey from magnun ask 3500 dollar for real photo workshop. learn HDR is a book reading and some youtube video. he doesn't produce nothing serious. he go to venice and shoot the same topic as amateur, photographer should go for the unknown, his portfolio is amateurish at the best. and it's one of many americans that do this, there are the others that shoot for fujifilm, again same photo, everybody takes the same photo with tripod.
i shoot HDR before env this guy had a camera, like many other.
this man has a pretty basic portfolio, shoot mostly the same topic and place and thousand of times, has nothing comparable to serious travel photographer, and thanks to marketing and social has become a guru in photography...once we had steve mccurry now trey radclif....and people pay 15000 to learn shoot this mediocre photography....while a modern workshop with magnum photographer is near 4000.the world is fabulous.
the only lens that rival the medium format, cost 4000 euro, and weight like a camper. and still it lacks the combo the full clarity, color separation. and it's a 55 mm......try a pentax 645d used with a used manual a35 3,5 lens, a lens made 30 years ago....it will be a 28 mm local, medium wide angle it's called, believe me when you will see the result stopped down you'll jaw will drop. i leave aside the pentax 25 that cost maybe too much, stopped down it produce incredible results. the sample i see from canon 11-24 a 2500 euro lens are really incredible, ca everywhere, distortion, lack of resolution in corner.full frame has many strong point to be used , more flexibility, but for ultimate IQ medium format is the way to go. especially now that a pentax 645z can be had for 6000 euro, and there are tons of cheap manual lens that will easily destroy 95% of modern lenses.

Papi61: "he camera weighs in at 300 grams or 10.65 ounces; that's about three times the weight of GoPro Hero4 Black, though press materials indicate it is still light enough to affix to a DJI Phantom 2"
Yeah, I'm guessing with a pancake lens and if you can live with 5-6 minutes of flight time instead of 20. Laws of physics still apply in this universe...
i fly the panasonic gm1 with 14 2,5 that weight 280 grams with dji phantom 2 and fly for over 15 minutes coming down 20%. remember that nobody use a go pro naked, most people add a zenmuse gimbal that weight 150 grams, so the total weight of go pro is always 220 240 grams. 400 grams will fly you sure 10 minutes.the problem is that there can't be a gimbal like zenmuse with this camera and phantom 3 with a 20 mm lens has great video and most of all a stabilized. it's true also that if you fly plannes path and you fly steady and without bump you can easily stabilize in post production.
jonny1976: completely copied by panasonic gm1.
i mean the style..look front iof gm1 and this. practically the same
completely copied by panasonic gm1.
tamron is impressive....but i shoot 645d and a cheap 35 mm lens that is 27 mm...well those who say full frame is like medium formathave smoked badly...none of those lens can even touch the 35 a lens i have in any aspect...and i think the same for the 25, that is a 18 mm..anyway tamron is a good contender. not impressed by the level of ca of the nikkor.
princecody: Steve Huff just posted a quick video on the *new Sony Distagon T* FE 35mm f/1.4 ZA Lens. Said it was better than Leica & Best E mount lens to date for IQ. BHPHOTO seems they a had in stock that have now sold out. I'm interested in this lens & obviously Sony's *new macro lens & how it compares to the Olympus 60mm macro lens :)
steve huff and company are failed photographer who doesn't have a clue to have a real career and become a " guru" of gear, like many other, not last scott kelby, who made a good life cause geek spend their life complaining about gear instead of going out and improve technique....he gain money advertising product, that s why every lens or product he uses is great.
