On Sony Alpha 7R II: Real-world ISO invariance study article (374 comments in total)
In reply to:

Magnar W: People are screaming about some hardly visible artifacts, shown at 200% pixel size. But hey, turn your eyes to the edges! Heavy posterization/purple color shift! Bad, bad!

This is caused by pushing the ISO 100 file way over the top! No one working seriously with photography would push a ISO 100 file this hard for real world work, no matter which camera they are using.

This is exactly the same result I get when pushing my ISO 100 Sony A7 raw files to ISO 6400. User errror, for sure.

:-)

@Magnar W: did you look at the beautiful shot that DPReview bothered to share and explain how it was done? The one with the lady on the horse, pushed by 4EV? Not "serious" enough?

DPReview, please forward this article to Sony. Right now.

I've said in a previous article that this was a "perfect example on the RAW compression subject". Glad to see you've picked it up again, with a more in-depth explanation.

I just want to say: perfect example on the RAW compression subject.

"Flickr for iOS update brings camera roll look, and feels like crap."

FTFY

First the 50mm f/0.95 and now this 85mm f/1.2. Well done, Zhong Yi.

Oh, I learned from the D600 episode, too: sold it and bought an A7.

LionelA: Now this looks like a real camera, not like those fragile mirrorless ones

Have a like, just for making me laugh.

I'm sure I'd sooner forget that thing at home than losing a cap.

In reply to:

marleni: From what I read here and there, the new Sonys are "revolutionary"
- but as you write correctly, Sony has "experimented with many different concepts" in the last years - every one being hailed as the one big thing when they came out..
this makes me personally a bit reluctant to wait and see and not spend money too soon on a new concept ...who knows what Sony does NEXT, no?!!

On the contrary, really. With this camera you know you'll have nearly every system covered, old and new. You don't get any more future-proof than this.

Ilebeback: Makes the Sony A7/A7r look like tomorrow's technology at a bargain price.

How convenient of you to include lens in those prices...

A7 with Nikkor adapter: $1800...

...which leaves you with $1000 worth of "50 years of legacy glass".

I'll just keep my D600, my FE2 and my 6 AI lenses (all of which, together, cost less than this), thank you.

Someone please forward this news to Nikon.

Well done, Fujifilm.

It's the samples at f/1.4 that will sell this lens, not the "references" or the "homages". And they better be *that* good.

In reply to:

Lift Off: Thank you, Nikon.

Thank YOU for completely recking the value of MY D600, because YOUR product had a defect that YOU couldn't sort.

And with this cowardly move, you've now done it TWICE!

I've never complained about the oil/dust spots, but this is just beyond belief.

Shame on you.

@Andrew770:

But I want a camera. And I did chose Nikon.
Besides, there's a big difference between an "investment" and not bothering at all with the resale value; what are you talking about?
It's clear that this isn't the same as the natural progression of product losing it's value due to time and future releases. It's about the release of a "new" product to cover up the defect of the previous model.
It's a matter of business ethics and Nikon has proven they lack them.
And why anyone would be in support/defend that is beyond me...

In reply to:

RichRMA: I can't really understand why the RX1 would win that prize. The whole idea, someone finally releases a FF mirrorless (no, not Leica) camera...and you can't change the lens. Why, why, WHY???! Sony blew a tremendous chance to get one up on Nikon and Canon and instead invented an expensive curiosity.

One step at a time...

I see the RX1 almost as a prototype, to be honest, and applaud Sony very much for making it happen.

In reply to:

motobloat: I'm surprised no one has mentioned this here:

This is a *street photographer's* dream lens.

You get 28mm, 35mm, and 50mm equivalents, and everything in between, all at f/1.8. No more do you have to just pick one of the three classic 'street' lenses - you can have them all.

New street kit? Small SLR like D3200 or 100D + this lens - small, fast, light, high-resolution, and really, really flexible.

Light?? I think you missed these specifications...:

Weight 810 g (1.79 lb)
Diameter 78 mm (3.07″)
Length 121 mm (4.76″)

I mean, I can carry all three 1.8 primes together (28 + 35 + 50) and still would be 100g lighter than the Sigma.

EDIT: Damn, you guys are fast...!
