  • I think you know what diatribe means (a forceful and bitter verbal attack against... ). Nowhere does he seem bitter or making negative attacks, but your posts sure as heck do. I don't get all the ...
  • IBIS is a killer feature IMHO on the Alpha bodies.  I see 74% really want it and another 22% would find it nice to have.   I am pretty sure there are a handful here trying to defend Sony and ...
  • In the article is shows an APS sensor does not use the full aperture of a FF lens. Since f-stop is focal length divided by lens diameter and has no relationship to sensor size, this is confusing. ...

  • It could be sale, but items in high demand rarely see their prices drop.  Sometimes sales are used to clear inventory.
  • White balance was off after I uploaded the first picture.  This time it looks better.

  • Replied in From a Sony guy
    I had a an A6000 for a while but returned it.  The lenses aren't there yet and the sub $700 ones were not as good as other systems.   I went with a used A57 which rates the same as all the current ...
  • Created discussions BIFs are hard!!!
    My dad gave me some nice old alpha lenses and set of extension tubes. After getting excited about using them I found they do not have electric contacts and do not control aperture. For now I had ...
  • I really, really like those.  And I don't know if you use RAW or JPEG files, but I very much like the colors I get from my A57 and what I see from the A77. Does everyone else love the Sony skin ...
  • I want to thank Panasonic for knocking a little sense in to Sony pricing. Isn't there an LX8 coming soon too? ;) Thank you for the comparison. The FZ looks formidable and so far I prefer its RAW...

    Maybe if you only take head shots at 210.   I have a 200mm F/2.8 zoom on my Sony and can tell you the subject isolation it gives makes the 55-210 look like a P&S.   Neil's F/4 zoom in those ...
  • I think just the opposite. More members of this lens mount group equals more choice and perceived dominance. The format with its wider aperture lens and IBIS from what I can see is every bit as...

  • Replied in Thanx
    This was very helpful.
  • If I have this straight all these cameras will perform near the same for shadow noise at ISO6400  and the A6000 will equal the A7 at ISO12800 because shadows noise is the most important factor to ...

    and that extra around the edges allows us to move closer to get the same field of view when in turn gives us a shallower depth of field.  F4 and APS-C may not be wide enough for those good shallow ...
  • Not where it matters though?  Does it make a big difference at high ISOs and when the noise increases?  Is the resolution loss worth it?
  • Replied in DR for low ISO?
    Most people say DR matters most at low ISOs where it is highest.  Is this true?  Noise is close to the same for all 3.   If you want more DR at high ISOs about the same noise and a lot less ...
  • That is right. I was talking about F4 and the APS-C sensor. When I want subject isolation I look for something like these that took as examples.  This is part of a tree from a good 20+ feet away ...
  • Surprising the lack of subject isolation with this lens at F4.   I didn't realize there was such a large difference between the F2.8 and F4 lenses on APS cameras.
  • Thank you for the kind words. I am very happy with my choice. I am learning about certain people here too. It was really weird when you-know-who made one of the craziest posts I have ever seen. He ...
