This September fools joke does at least raise the spectre of Orwellian mind control on chips - but that is beyond decent comprehension. When everything else has been photographed we will have not choice but to colonize other planets if for no other reason than fgresh vistas. Love photgraphy that much.

I downloaded both the 5D3 and A7R high ISO raw files and post processed identically with DxO default standard plus prime noise reduction. First I compared the photos overall. Not much difference, maybe a slight difference in color cast with the Canon on the yellow side and Sony toward blue. Then I pixel peeped, taking 4x6 crops bounded by the edges of the saucer at the top of the space needle. Both were noisy at this high level of magnification. At extreme closeup the Canon had a slightly larger noise grain structure while the Sony had more obvious purple violet color halos. I don't think that any of these microscopic differences are important limitations for the art of photography. Of courses, the lenses were different as well.

DanielFjall: There are two kinds of photographers:
those who are interested in what a particular camera can't do,
and those who are interested in what it can do

I totally get that and agree. A hipster using a holga film or digital camera creatively is more of a photographer than a gear-head involved in scholastic debates about sensors and dynamic range.

Lightcapture: Will this overheat?

This thread will overheat but the camera will be fine.

Pros perspective is valid, but 'colors like puke' is hyperbole. Canon colors don't vary that much from camera to camera. But considering hyperbole is a job requirement in sports media..... I thought limited to writers..... and.... color commentators.

Wow! This lens idea generated a lot of comments both favorable and unfavorable. Forget about the gear perspective and the sociology (hipsters) for just a moment and think instead about looking at great photos. There are photos where everything seems to come together perfectly, and if any one element changed, the beautiful result would not have been achieved. Can this lens help to create just ONE such timeless beautiful photograph? If the answer is yes, the lens is justified. Canon and Nikon make some truly fabulous equipment, but it is a good thing to see a diversity of ideas floating around out there, and certainly nothing to be threatened by.

Really great shot - reminds me of scenes from a Tarkovsky movie.
