In reply to:

stevo23: I'll never understand DPR's timing with reviews. This lens has been reviewed and tested already by so many.

The more reviews the better for us [potential] customers.

What is going on here? No pixel peeping? No hassle about CA? No dispute about corner sharpness...? Could it be that people are just enjoying some images? Satan is probably in desperate need of de-icer right now.

Thanks for sharing! :)

Nukunukoo: Who really cares about the size/weight when you get REALLY good images? You guys yapping about how heavy it is makes you sound like wusses! And that's from a gal! =P Getting one (or two).

Ah, so all of a sudden size doesn't matter anymore? ;-)

Joerg V: 98% Otus @ 25% price? Shut up and take my money!

The Otus is ahead at f/1.4 (sharpness and CA control), so if someone always shoots wide open, the Otus might be the better choice.
Anyway my Lr catalog shows that indeed 0.5% of my images are wide-open, so I'll agree on the 99.5% number. :)

I do not own an Olympus camera but I acknowledge that Olympus is taking care of issues. I don't think that this might influence some of my buying decisions but you never know...

The nice thing about that unusual design: everybody will immediately notice how unique and strange it is. And you can have fun with it:

"Hi miss! This gizmo? Yeah, obviously it is a prototype. I am doing a field test for the military trying out some new technology. This thing can look right through walls...or cloth for that matter. You are looking great! Care for a coffee?"

The blue layer of the Foveon actually doesn't capture saturated blue but a very very pale blue - almost white. So this is more like a sensor that captures white light at every photo pixel and color information with lower resolution. This seems like a more Bayerish approach and will probably sacrifice resolution but should help a lot with the Foveon noise that stems from crosstalk between the layers.

The camera design is... errr... special.

In reply to:

HetFotoAtelier: What a b#lsh#t all these reactions.....
I've a nikkor 50mm/1.4G and that lens is PERFECT :-)
and much cheaper :-)

On a NIKON there should only be mounted NIKKORS :-)

If you think that the 50mm/1.4G is perfect your standard is low.

Probably good for the money, probably not as good as the Sigma.

In reply to:

Volkan Ersoy: On RAW, there isn't much difference compared to D800/D610. On JPEG, Sonys shine.

Strange artifacts (on RAW), though. Check the gravure-like print on the middle-left. A7R, A7, D800 but D610 have moire-like effects on the top of the print. The wall behind the people is rendered much better with D610, while A7R and D800 are better in other details...

So the JPEG engine in the Sony is better than the Nikon engine. That's no big deal.
The A7R seems to be a tad better in resolution than the D800 (which was to be expected) but only carefull pixelpeeping reveals that. That means, if you like that 36MP sensor and want to have a small body, the A7R might be the way to go. The native lens selection is limited though... using an adapter with a 36MP camera isn't the best idea.

In reply to:

SDF: Wow! Based on the comments people posted here.
- No touch screen AF
- No in-body IS
- Lens too big
- Lens too slow
- Lens too heavy
- Only 2 lens at launch
- Too expensive
- Too ugly
- No pop up flash
- Fake penta prism
- Body look cheap like a toy
- EVF is garbage compare to OVF
- Len adapter is too big
- Sony copied Olympus
This could be the worst camera in the History. lol

You forgot to mention that both cameras do not feature a pony! No pony, no buy!
