FuhTeng: I'm excited for the RX10 III - what a fun camera to rent for a vacation! Sure, it's expensive, but it's a 600 mm f4 lens! I just hope the AF is up to the task.
And if it's not, the Nikon DL24-500 sounds great too.
Good one FuhTeng. Richard, of course your 600/4 would produce better image quality. It sure as heck better at 5 X the weight (with a body) and 10 X the price, it better! But, the Rx10II will put roughly the same number of pixels on the same field of view as a 5DIII with the 600/4,and I can put it in my personal carry on item and not need a chiropractic appointment after every use. Winner winner, chicken dinner.
I get so tired of these guys who insist on correcting the equivelent aperture on these non full frame bodies! Yes, it is a 10.8 equivelent with regards to depth of field, but it is an f4.0 600mm with regards to exposure. This lens and your canon for 600/4 will have the exact same exposure parameters in any given situation. That means same aperture, same shutter speed, and same iso. Your comments never seem to mention that fact.
Let me get this straight. You guys get paid to do this? Tough gig! Well done. I really enjoy your video reviews.
vinrouge0: Lower resolution than expected but more than enough in reality. Lack of IBIS is a disappointment though many will disagree
Now if Sony would provide a nice 100-400mm lens like the new Fuji, combined with all that AF goodness could make a compelling wildlife/sports combination
Impulses: And I thought my $70 Artisan & Artist strap was expensive... Functionally it's the complete opposite of this thing tho, 'easy glide' adjustment on the fly is the best thing ever.
Good point. I do know quite a few fine Italians though
I don't think Italians are an endangered species, so that's cool.
pancromat: model* should pay attention to their manicure. disgusting! (*and photographer!)
All true. Not very professional, but not disgusting.
Disgusting? Really? A little hyperbole maybe? 10 day old road kill on your dinner plate, now that's disgusting. Chipped nail polish, not so much.
ZoranHR: Now,when I saw how it works I even less belive it can wash properly.
Obviously that comment was only meant for the people it was meant for. The rest of you get it.
Really people? Save your outrage for something that matters. This is just for fun. Try to remember when you were a child and used to have "fun"? Lighten up. Smile. If life is that serious to you, I'd guess you could have saved yourselves a lot of angst by reading the title and choosing not to watch. What did you expect?
Thank you for this Nicolaus. So beautifully done. So inspiring. Pretty much any frame in this could be printed and hung on my wall.
G1Houston: Yeah, the weight must be wrong. The current version is already 500g.
Check the specks link. It's listed at 470g http://www.dpreview.com/news/2014/01/06/sigma-announces-all-new-50mm-f1-4-dg-hsm-art-lens?utm_campaign=internal-link&utm_source=news-list&utm_medium=text&ref=title_0_0#specs
Ben Herrmann: Yup - I discovered this almost immediately with my P7700 and found that after doing this 1.3 firmware update, my superb 3rd party Wasabi batteries no longer functioned.
But alas - I still had a copy of the previous version 1.2 firmware and I updated my camera back to version 1.2 - now all is well and I will not touch 1.3 again. It was simple to do. I'm really PO'd at Nikon for pulling this stunt. And the new P7800 and I take it the D5300 will not be able to use 3rd party batteries - bummer.
Panasonic pulled the same stunt a few years back. At least they had the cahones to come right out and tell their users what they'd done. Protecting us from 3rd party batteries. They did eventually relent to the outcry and reverse the block
James JC: I don’t know if it was intentional or an oversight nor do I care.Why should Nikon be responsible for supporting knock off products? Third party manufacturers should consider themselves lucky they are not being sued. Just ask Polaroid…
yeah! Like EverReady should sue everyone who makes a battery compatible with their flashlights!
SergioSpain: I sincerely hope that none of the people complaining about this own any Apple products, because nobody is worse than Apple when it comes to locking down their system.
I've had this same experience with 3rd party 8 pin usb cords for my iphone 5. I get a message that it is not an approved accessory and might not function properly. Indeed it doesn't work at all. Rumor has it that Apple is starting to chip their ear buds in anticipation of adding the same kind of control in future updates.
You guys (and gals) at dpreview must have really thick skins to be willing to post these. You know the drill. Shortly you will have a dozen hot shots tell you what crappy shots they are, and their goldfish could have done better. ;-).Well, I for one really appreciate these real world samples. As much as I'd love to see raw's I understand you can't do that yet. Keep up the good work.
Scott Greiff: At $4.99 a piece to add "functionality" to your camera, "Shaft" is indeed appropriate.
Really?? $4.99? That's less than a Whopper Deluxe. I don't know what you shoot, but what do they charge for these add on apps? Oh, I see.........sorry 'bout that.
