Shamael: Who needs 36 mpix 1080 video and 3200$ to pay, while the trend is 12 mpix, 4k and 2500$. Now, I ask myself some days that good ol' question, "should I laugh or should I cry."

No such thing as a 12 mlix…your 5 years behind the actual trend…

Not a great lens. The DxoMark review got it right…
When compare to the 55mm, it is very disappointing…

In fact, the reason why I am staying away from the A7R is because there is no 35mm capable of performing well on this 36 mg camera !

However, the 55MM is an outstanding lens…worthy of its price tag !

tinzi1: I LOVE to see how this lens competes with sigma's 35 1.4, If IQ equals, i might get this one.

We already know that the Sigma 35 1.4 is excellent…but not weather seal… see the reviews.

On Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX1R Preview preview (114 comments in total)

Goog morning Barney (DP Review),

I would love to see the same pictures taken a few second apart at the same ISO and aperture with the RX1 and the new RX1R.

Portrait and people as well as a few landscape.

I am incline to believe, base on the pictures I have reviewed that the RX1 after a bit of PP is already, once enlarged to size like a 24 x 36 are as sharp as the new RX1R is capable of producing (without the moirer...) ?

Would love to see this confirm or ???

Thanks,

James

James First 007: To R. Butler: We would all appreciate if real world picture samples were taken simultaneously with the GR and Coolpix A with the same parameters at the same place just a few seconds apart; ie same picture + same parameters.

James

To R. Butler: For greater clarity...identical pictures taken with the GR and Coolpix A with identical parameters, taken side by side within seconds...iso, aperture etc...

Many thanks in advance.

James

MrSkelter: I'm so sick of this. When is Nikon going to give us a pocketable camera with the D800 sensor, a 14-400 zoom lens and 4K video for under $500? It's time to take the lead!

In about 10 years or so....

James First 007: O.k. I don't comment very often but please go to www.nikon.com and take a very good look at the limited pictures sample of this new camera...

They are just beyond belief...the IQ is much much better than my RX100 (which I own and like) and much better than the anticipated Fuigi x100s (Period).

My last comment on the subject...
You see nothing in term of IQ because you did not increase the size of the picture on your screen...

Yes, for close up photography you would most likely be better off with at least a 50 mm...a 28 mm might provide a feeling of vital space invasion to those who are being photograph but at the end of the day...so long as there is no barrel distortion, vignetting etc... in your picture you will be fine...

But think this through...if you must have a fixed lens wouldn't you want it to be wide...

Please pay particularly attention to her eyes and notice that in spite of the fact that this lens is a 2.8, the IQ is substantially better in the left eye...

No Mike,

Based on what's available picture wise on the internet... the COOLPIX A wins in the IQ department...the end result...

No view finder because it is a compact camera...
Too many readers and participant on this site don't get that ?????

Ugly ????

Certainly not too wide...

MrSkelter: What is going on with this model's pupils? Seriously. She looks fixed and dilated. Have they been badly retouched? Contacts?
