Looks like Yongnuo forced Canon to upgrade their shoddy EF 50mm f/1.8 II lens by giving a similar lens (better in some aspect like 7 vs 5 aperture blade) for less than half the price...
Canon users should thank Yongnuo.
Does anyone know how do they cut these lenses in halves? Do they cut each component separately and carefully assemble them back? Or do they slice up a whole lens at one go? Always been in mystery to me.
The dust seems to be a problem in the first batches. But now I can see few people are saying they don't have such amount of dust problem (even in this page you can find such comment below). Does this mean Nikon has started resolving this problem internally?
Is the dust problem there in the recently bought (within last 1 or 2 weeks) cameras?
Why is no one from Nikon speaking out?
Why Nikon is not talking about the dust issue at all?! Should we buy D600 or wait?
All right. Thanks iFixit.
But where is the review by DPReview?!When is it coming?
Fox Fisher: I don't understand why people are suprised by the sony sensor. For certain product segments, it may actually be cheaper to buy them from a supplier than developing a new in-house one. It's basic capitalism.
I thought Nikon does, for some of their cameras at least...
