nicoboston: The purpose was also to send a big "ENOUGH" following recurrent racism issues in France lately (as the country is more or less falling appart, it's very tempting to blame others).Good photographers and photojournalists are not in danger. Talented people will always exist. They have to adapt. It won't be easy, but they have to! Everybody loves nice images. Now everyone can capture decent images with good cameras and phones... If everyone had access to good violins and pianos, it would be more difficult to become a recognized musician. It's competition... Don't give up, photographers ! Newspapers will disappear, you won't ;-)
If you did live in France, you would know that indeed the situation is becoming unbearable with muslims !
But we should discuss photography and not politics here...
It's too bad that the Sony Z1 doesn't have stabilization !
limlh: Canon admits that the sensor may be useful for medical and security purposes. Unlikely to see it in digital camera. I think for sensitivity in digital imaging to take a big step forward, a new base material for sensor like Graphene would be needed. In fact, it may be more practical for sensor makers to use Graphene in their current process than making organic sensor, which Fujifilm is very likely to use in the next iteration of the X-series cameras.
Intel just announced that graphene processors will be made around 2020, that doesn't mean big processors though !
Mssimo: Makes all the NEX cameras look like toys.
You should see a shrink to talk about your size issues :p
Way overpriced ! The 70D costs 1200 USD...A used D600 costs 1500 !
Just interesting for people that have many m43 lenses already.
Great... but now please make a 16-35 version.Yeah... people are never happy :p
CeleryBeats: Awesome lens. Awaiting Full Frame equivalent.
You should start going to the gym, the FF version will weight 5 kilos !
pancromat: my highest respect to the sigma engineers for this exceptional lens, but from my point of view it makes absolutely no sense. i stay with the APS-C sized sensor, because i want a good compromise between IQ, handling and compact size of the "package", my canon 60D with a tamron 17-50 (no VC, trusted, lasted over three bodies) comes close to this. if i accept to carry a lens this big, and to carry it with comfort you need the larger camera bodies, i would go FF. in that zoomrange there is no creative benefit from 1.8, i'm pretty sure. so a nice compact 2.8/17-55 or so with that excellent IQ would have exhilarated me much more.
Well, that you don't need the lens, doesn't make the lens less useful for others.
imsabbel: I always wonder about the whole APS 1.8 vs FF 2.8 equivalency:
Are FF sensors as sensitive as APS-C, per mm^2? Because the equivalency only works if they are.
And I am not sure about that, seeing that APS-C outsells FF by more than an order of magnitude and correspondingly, the processes would be more optimized...
Yes 200 ISO is 200 ISO no matter the sensor size (even if there are discrepancies between brands), but the noise is different.
FF sensors are about as sensitive per mm² as APS-C sensors because if you look at DXO Mark results, the ISO performance is proportionate to the sensor surface (for same generation sensors of course).
Should have won !
Nice picture but I would have put less land and more sky.
They could have at least put the new 20MP sensor in !
@yabokkie I think everyone here is sick of your trolling.
Incredibly aesthetic !
Mssimo: How do they get blue or green?
green = white - red - blue...
Anadrol: Awesome picture !Would it be possible to get it in full res ?
Thank you !!
Very kind of you :) Where was it taken ?
Awesome picture !Would it be possible to get it in full res ?
Really amazing shot ! Congrats.
Impressive !!Any chance we could get it in higher res please ?
