In most of the images senior staff was watching the show projected in front of them. When the president arrives Cheney seems to take responsibility of a catchup. But no actions are seen, no orders are given to anyone, apparently no attempt to change the course of actions. Nothing at all. Were they totally paralyzed by the happenings? Cheney definitely seems very passive. So the next step would be to ask archives what actions were taken to mitigate the outcome. The series did not change my view that Cheney is a war criminal.
kadardr: Let us just imagine in addition to the 24-35/f2 another like 40-80mm/f2 and another say 100-200mm/f2.4, all full frame. Would you need those? Would you need anything else? (OK maybe macros)
Your dream would be way too heavy. Otherwise Sigma is OK with me.

The right size with the right features and a very good form.Who could ask for anything more? Well, OK, the price. That is high, not very much though.
The Silver Nemesis: Memo to Canon 5Ds / 5DsR users (other than DPR staff): if there is anyone out there that has one of these cameras, please express your informed point of view. So, what you were able to do and you were satisfied and in which situations your photographic skills were handicaped by the camera?All other pows are valid, but just bla bla - because real life experience correlation (e.g.: I used this during a wedding... / a landscape photo session... / etc) with test findings (DPR) is absent. IMHO you cannot judge a camera from a single perspective. Brian (TDP) and the French (Cd'I / RP) are offering good perspectives, but I feel this is not enough as well.P. S.: I tend to take any opinion here with a grain of salt, due to ferocious "brand vs brand" battles I see. I don't know who's who, who earns money from any camera maker and who's not. So, if you can offer some unbiased real life experience please do it - I am pretty curious now about the DSLR world...
There is a "real world review" of 5DsR:http://blog.mingthein.com/2015/07/02/canon-5dsr-review-part-1/ part 2 is upcoming
Above iso 400 there is practically no difference in DR. If you want to exploit all DR capability of Nikon D810, you have to stick with iso64-100 or 200 maximum. Thus your shooting envelope will be pretty limited and the DR advantage highly situational for the highest DR images. To exploit highest DR will be a precision work with both Nikon and Canon.
Jennyhappy2: What exactly were you expecting?
This is high-precision shooting. Hard work no fun. I imagine it was being done in Liveview with a Zacuto or similar.
If you wanna carry the weight carry the weight. This is an image product for the buyer and for Sigma two. For those whom the gear is more important. For those who really want to buy it the good news is it can be sold only significantly below the price of 24-70/2.8 zooms. Because the one stop advantage do not equalize the reach advantage.IMO.
14-bit issue is one of reasons why I dont want any Sony camera. Especially since Nikon D810 can offer that with ease (and absolutely spectacular sensor performance on top of that).
Im also quite curious about why Sony own implementation of their sensor isnt on par with competition. I mean, they actually make these things. :D
And dear Sony forget 14-bit, give us 16-bit and those 42 or more mpix. Then you can really call it "MFDB competition". Maybe even actually be a competition to that. :D
I have a bet that lossless rawRAW would slow the system down. Then it would need more power (computing and battery), a bigger body probably. They did not dare to do it at launch, or they were told not to.
Nice work. I wonder how the sound was recorded when it's direct.
I want one. Everything seems perfect as far as specs go. Foreseeing a huge success (in Leica terms I mean). Also very much expecting a 50 mm version Sigma DP Quattro style.
Actually I find 28 mm better than 35 mm, as preferring Ricoh GR/Nikon A to Fuji X100. But anyway.
This camera is for masters of B&W film photography who want to take high resolution B&W images above ISO1600. Using such camera requires a B&W state of mind, which is a different endeavour. For me the whole business of using corrective color filters and work with B&W eyes just does not fit. I like to use Color Efex Pro in a free style mode (film simulation without film simulation) and that is it.
I have a bet Canon is using the 12-MP Sharp sensor introduced last summer/fall in their XC10 camera.http://image-sensors-world.blogspot.hu/2014/08/sharp-announces-1-inch-12mp-cmos-sensor.htmlI was wondering whose gonna be the first to use this. It seems Canon it is.
I am pretty sure that a significant proportion of posters did not read the above article.It also becomes clear that this product will need a very thorough manual on usage and style.
We just got a first glimpse how the serious Canon EVIL camera will look like in the future. This design may serve as a foundation of the coming interchangeable lens Canon cameras of the mirrorless type.
It seems to me that crossover cameras and speciality cameras are the trend of the future. According to Canon it is for sure. Nothing wrong with that. About XC10: could you cover a wedding with this one sole camera?
For this money - in my case - I could buy a Micro-Nikkor 60mm f/2.8G ED. I will buy this Lensbaby, when they celebrate the 100,000. sample sold.
How does this compare to Tamron SP 90mm F2.8 Di VC? If better all hails to Samyang.
The price is right, the specs are right, MP count is up: a marketers dream come true. I would wait for the next V variant to come up. But I am sure the J5 shares the speed and accuracy of the rest of the N1 system, which is still in its adolescence, though. As for the 4k 15fps: you get what you are paying for, other words cost containment mixed with plain marketing necessities.
If you are an N1 starter: buy a V2 instead for less.
