  • The depth of field in your examples is enormous. Birds at F/8 from 100 feet away, probably farther, would give you over 22 feet DoF. Your other bird picture was F/9!!! 14mm and F/5.6 in one example ...
  • Replied in Ever try it?
    We are going to disagree then.  My experience and the reviews I've read say the opposite.  And too many trusted owners say the opposite.  I've never read anyone with experience say the A6000 is ...
  • Replied in Ever try it?
    Ever try this?  It doesn't work well with the A6000.  Theoretically it should, but for some reason does not.  The A6000 requires a lot of tweaking form defaults to work in low light and even then ...
  • Almost a year ago the a5100 was a "Parts bin" camera.  Nothing "new", but instead parts from the A5000 and A6000. You mean confirmed. Sadly Sony tried to update the FW and get 4K working with older ...
  • IF Sony releases an A6100. It will only be a "refresh" of the A6000 with a few FW updates and many be a couple increased specs like 12 FPS. Almost all reports and comments from Sony point to APS ...
  • The A6000 is a low price bargain.  Stills are near as good as cameras like the old D5300, but not quite as good as the D7200.  Video is nothing special, and with many 4K options now a little ...
  • Replied in @nandbytes
    ...only a small number of people are wiling to use old legacy lenses or lenses form another system on they camera.  They don't want to buy a camera and then suffer with the limitations of using ...
  • Replied in Adapter kludge
    Great, a $300 adapter so you can use lenses from a dying system. The AF isn't from the current generation Sony PDAF focusing, nor the generation before that. It is from 2010. It disables CDAF and ...
  • Replied in just plain wrong
    LOL!    Sony sold even more P&S cameras and Smartphones.  How'd that work out for them.  :) Sales #s do not equal profits.  Sony is shifting towards $1000 lenses and $1500 camera bodies where ...
  • Commented on Samsung NX1 Review preview

    If I normally use a 450mm lens and am on a budget, it is NOT logical to buy a FF camera.
    And can you point us to the FF body that can shoot at 15 FPS for under $6000?
    I would say almost ANYONE...

  • They didn't wait 'a year'.  I think the earliest the review could have been done is late July.   Still, they did keep pushing back the review costing it the Gold award as you say. It was the best ...
  • Commented on Sony SLT-A77 II Review preview

    And for a camera from the 80s MF is acceptable. But today you lose 90% of prospective buyers when you say "you can do it but only if you manually focus".
    I love the a77ii, but hate the f/3.5...

  • Commented on Sony SLT-A77 II Review preview

    "the a77II was released before the a6000"
    Really? Is today opposite day?

  • The A99 started at $2800US and Sony raised the non-IS 70-200mm F/2.8 zoom to $3000. If there is a new FF SLT, it won't be $4000, but it very well could be $3000.  This means a body and 2 F/2.8 ...
  • I've seen the DPR reviewers say the score relates to 'current' cameras.   The A77 II came out over 9 months ago long before the D7200 and NX1.  If scored at that time I believe it would have been ...
  • Commented on Sony SLT-A77 II Review preview

    The Ace in the Hole for this camera is all the Minolta 'forgotten gems' lenses. The list is long and the prices are usually low.
    Anyone who isn't bothered by using legacy lenses and who is...

  • Replied in Larger profits
    Sony is not a not for profit organization.
  • Commented on Samsung NX1 Review preview

    The NX1 looks very impressive. In most of the scenes is competes favorably with the latest Sony FF camera, the A7ii. The D7200 might be even better which might have people questioning some of the...

  • Imagine an A7000 with ibis and that sensor. Better DR than ANY Sony full frame camera ever made! -- Don't worry - be happy!
  • It really shows the potential for APS-C cameras.  A FF camera with the specifications of the D7200 would retail for $3000.  But (especially Canon) its sensor would still not surpass the D7200 overall.
