I warned you, in the article that announced the purchase of SanDisk by WD, I said that they will interfere and mess things up, and you contradicted me.

Here is the proof !

Lassoni: But what if the lenses were little bit slower, just so they could also be lighter? I'm not saying pancake small, but small enough to be comparable to smallest FF lenses maybe? Have big sensor, but let retard the optics in terms of speed a little bit so they package doesn't end up being heavy, and you have body + 2-3 primes weighting under 2 kilos.

No, they're not the same speed as the FF 1.8 !!!!

They might be the same equivalent depth of field ?! (3.2 to 1.8), but speed is light gathering capability, and 1.4 is 1.4 and 3.2 is 3.2, you get 2 and a half less light with the MF lenses.

A little slower ? Mate, the lenses are f/3,2 and f/3.5, any slower and you'd need a tripod.

They say MF gives shallower DOF, but a D750 with an 85 1.4 wipes the floor with this Hasselblad combo. The lenses are slow ! Let's just hope they're insanely sharp and corrected.

Satyaa: The price point is revolutionary for Hassy. It is not for everyone. FF DSLRs have more usability. If your shooting style requires a MF (OK, 645) then this offers portability at 645z price point!

Many folks expected this (wanted) from Fuji. Time for Pentax to reveal what they've been working on.

The 80D is a fantastic camera and it seems to come with great dynamic range (finally), while having probably the best video of any DSLR. The only thing Canon does wrong with it's other cameras is the DR, other than that they are fantastic cameras. And I shoot Nikon ..

Sad thing is, people don't care about photography anymore, people only care about gadgetery, about the latest and the greatest.

As far as I know, the lenses actually are from Fuji. It is hinted that some electronics apart from the sensor might be from Sony.

nicolaiecostel: If you can't afford it, you most likely don't need it. Like an expensive painting, it works only placed in a luxury mansion or penthouse, or in an art gallery for the public.

We're not comparing food with a 10k camera. One is a basic need accessible to most people, the other is a luxury item.

If you want a food comparison, we can compare filet mignon with chicken wings. If you can't afford filet mignon, you probably don't need it anyways, something else, cheaper, will do. Like a Sony A7 or a D810.

Isn't Hasselblad from Denmark ?

Weird atmosphere here, Dpreview comment sections used to be full of photography enthusiasts that new what you can do with a lens and camera.

Now we have smartphone users saying that they have this kind of lens be default in their latest gadget, and people that compare budget 2.8 primes to 1.4 premiums.

I think this lens is fantastic and I shoot an FF Nikon !

Halina123: A 24mm prime lens!
I wonder how many will actually by it.
A top of the range smartphone comes with a wide angle fast prime lens for free.

So what is the point of producing this lens in 2016.

Your ignorance baffles me !

FantasticMrFox: Seems like Pentax K is garnering third party support again. First Irix, now this - the sun is shining in Pentax land. And with the success of the K-1 and the new electronic aperture mechanism, it seems like it's only a matter of time until at least Sigma returns.

I've always used stock screens because I mostly use AF, I only MF when shooting macro or shooting video.

I have seen the reviews from the main youtube reviewers and there was no rave, only positive. TCS found the AF to be modest in continuous and the ergonomics quirky and DRev found the video to be modest as well as the ergonomics.

Also, there seems to be a production shortage, in my country at least, one person that I know that ordered one, did not get it. And he's the only one I know that's getting one so it might sell like hotcakes somewhere else, who knows. I checked the Amazon top sale DSLR's and I think it was in 80'th place or something, or 90'th.

Succes as in it exists ? And why would you buy a chinese 35 1.2 with manual focus anyway ?

I tried the Samyang 24 1.4 and 85 1.4 and I could barely get perfect focus, on a full frame viewfinder. To me, these things are for mirorless cameras, where you can focus peak and take your time.

iudex: Great camera and a slap in Canon and Nikon´s face: who else produses such fully packed entry-level model? Just Pentax does. Bravo Pentax!

They always produced great bang for buck products, that was supposed to be a slap in the face of Canon and Nikon, ever since the K10D, K200D. I actually reccomended a K200D to a friend. However, after you buy it you realise why they cost so little and seem to offer so much.

He gladly got rid of it some time later and was very happy with his new Nikon D90 that got him good consistent AF, consistent WB, good range of lenses.

On article Setting new standards: Nikon D5 Review (419 comments in total)

If you think DR for this camera is bad, you should remember that Canon users always had this much DR or lower on their cameras and they do just fine.

This is low DR at low ISO for Nikon shooters, spoiled with 14-15 stops of dynamic range.

The much-praised D3s had a little less DR than the D5...

Tobamory: Wow i never knew the Battery was that big 3700 snaps wowser, makes the canon look like Mirrorless...

That's nothing new, nor impressive. That's the usual big-battery-pro-camera mileage. The D3/s had similar figures as far as I know.

I shot my last wedding on a D750 and I got around 1600-1800 on a battery, and they have much smaller batteries, that's why I say it's not impressive.

That's asking too much from a 100$ stick that doesn't even come with battery.

Edymagno: Very sad news

Again, you are not right. You claim that WD owns Seagate, yet the first result to the search phrase you suggested yields the exact opposite, an article stating that Seagate will in fact buy WD

http://www.storagenewsletter.com/rubriques/mas/seagate-acquires-wd-for-16-billion-new-company-named-seawest/

And I'm sure it's not true. Wikipedia does not mention any ownership of one versus the other, and treats them like competition.

Please provide a trustworthy source of your claim.
