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.
AlexisH: For those wondering why Pentax is not getting more attention, this is why. Both Canon and Nikon are now offering very competitive APS-C DSLRs in this price range.
7 years ago C/N didn't dream of offering a pentaprism and water sealing at this price - Pentax's offer was genuinely unique back then. Now - not so much.
nikonhas only af advantage and is not so big...for the rest...viefinder, is, a lot of feature like composition adjustment with is...in practice with a good head you have like a cubo from arca without spending thousand dollar...built like a d4 compared to built like a d600, all apsc system with 9 weather sealed lenese that don't cost an arma nd leg...a full frame upgrade...i understand buying a d4 a d810...a d750, but those cheap nikon apsc have no point compared to other cameras from mirrors to pentax aps sensor
try a k3 and a d7200 and u realized the difference in feeling..i was shocked first time i tried the d7000 compared to a k5.also k3 has same buffer as this new model.-nikon doesn't have nothing comparable to the ks2 as feature...beginning from the tillable screen to the in body is. also a dedicate line of apsc sized lenses.most of nikon are sold cause it's nikon.
there is no sample to evaluate sharpness stopped down, like f 8 f 11 or f16...not a sample shoot from a tripod, there are small tripod carbon fiber preview if you don't know...theu cost nothing and would be perfect for mirrorless. from this sample we can tell nothing.
the 90 macro is similar to the 90 for pentaz 645z....the fe system is the proof that a full frame mirrors is a small camera with the same big lenses, with awkward usability, worst grip, worst af. good anyway to adapt some lenses from leica and other brand.
f 5,6 i see some ca everywhere. when people say full frame is like medium format it make me so smile. this image is a bit poor. corner to corner i expected much more sharpnsee. clarity?
pity not in pentax mount.
canon has no clue how to improve iq after 5 years. they should begin thinking a plan b, probbly buying sensor from other side.is not so strange that in cons and pro nothing has been said about iq. simply 3 stops behind sony sensor, color depth is a joke, with inaccurate tonality, skin tone fleshy as always. tons of hours of pp to obtain a neutral look.they still have a plethora of people buying for af and lens line up, but iq they are at micro third level, and panasonic gh4 trash away any canon for video output.than we have then ikon the excellent pentax, the sony....
same photo taken from ages....all this plethora of social photographer who call themselves travel and have never been to a place where at least 1000000000 photos have been already taken there.same for those fuji ambassador i don't remmed,ber the name.
my lacie sad 256 rugged performance like 200 mb and 350 mb in read/write speed....if i raid 2 or 3 of them with software i can easily reach the 500 / 700 mb results....4 sad and accelerator should produce a much solid performance. i love drobo idea but their performance are always sub par.
jonny1976: as expeted minimal gain and mostly after iso 25600 where the absolute quality is simply too low for quality work.
i'll hbet that as always panasonich gh4 apart high iso will produce better video than sony...so far sony has never been top in the list of videographers, due to frame rate codec rolling shutter...will see all these issue, much more important than simply low light.

xmeda: Pentax 645 system wins :D
already many pro using the old 645d and many will trade their back for the 645z. interchangeable backs are for photo wjho use field camera not many.
CameraLabTester: What a refreshing feeling to see a photography awards event devoid of war photos, conflict dramas, human atrocities, suffering and unhappiness.
Call it whatever you like, Sony has got it right.
personallu i find this story tells nothing about domestic violence...and i'm surprised all thiose prize awardd tho tis youn girll. first she said the story began like a story about the man and is rehabilitation, nothing happened between the woman an man in the months the photographer followed the couple, then one night they were drunk, after a night in a club, and they fight like can happen to thousand of couple, the girl had minimal sign of violence, and the photographer in fact keep shooting, very strange if the man was so angry and fury i doubt he would have left the photog take all those photos without trying to still the camera and card....then after police arrived and take the man, she arranged a story about the domestic violence. Smart girl for 21 years old, she managed to win many trophy and raise interest, but that story is highly manipulated in the deep sense of domestic violence.
normal video using tilt and shift lens....a revolution? i find it boring after 10 sec on.
watching the samples here it's clear these lenses are nothing up the leica film standard, probably not even far from micro third, who already use leica design....it's clear leica know there will be forever a niche of rich people who don't know where to throw money who will buy everything leica put out.treally. 7000 dollar for this camera with 2 lenses and a viewfinder...when a pentax 645z with kit is 8400.i find it pretty offensive if i were a leica user.
really ? is this erious?2000 for a plastic lens. 600 for a viewfinder?at this price better buys used m9 and some leica lenses...those with 2 aperture are cheaper
Paul Guba: I almost purchased the earlier version. Not being an amateur it lacked one notable feature not being able to be tethered. Seems like there is still issues with LR and unlikely Capture1 is going out of their way to support Pentax. Which makes it a no go as much as I would like to have it.
pentax 645d can be tethered with the image software sold by pentax
Jogger: The next jump in FF resolution will be 54mp; that combined with high-performing, modern lenses will keep a lot of people in the Nikon/Sony camp.
ff can't compete with medium format in iq, and is not about resolution. everybody who has shot mp and d800 already knows. in addiction i see only the bet loses some zeiss really delivering with the d800e
