  • What is optimized lens. Look at this thread: http://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/3698183 Mirrorless lens are not that much lighter than DSLR lens. Glass is glass, and is more dependent on sensor ...
  • 1/8000 will probably not stop action any better than 1/4000. The rate the shutter move across the sensor is still going to be slow, is just the light slit that gets smaller. You are still going to ...
  • Replied in Cherry pies
    His comparison is not valid because he was comparing two different class of lens. Suggested a very even comparison. Same generation, same series and exact focal length equivalence that he needs: ht ...

    The facts are the fact. No need to manipulate the fact to suit anyone's need. Which ever system is best wins. I am not a Sony shrill that put out these fictitious one sided videos. Using FF lens on ...
  • Replied in Wrong again
    I should have the right to evaluate other people's suggestion instead of accepting them blindly. In the case of 180mm f2.8 versus 300mm f4, there are issues with the comparison. Different ...
  • Multiple camera manufacture has entry level cameras that pretty much use the same sensor as their more expensive cameras. Nikon has that as well. Typically, you loose on features and build. For ...
  • You do realize the Nikon 300mm f4 and 180mm f2.8 are both FF lens. Hard to make a FF to APS-C comparison with two full frame lens. Suppose you use the FF lens on a crop frame camera. Crop frame is ...
  • Size and weight is NOT really the advantage for NX1. I looks like a DSLR and weights close to one too. The 16-50 f2-2.8 lens is huge. Besides, in terms of weight, whether is mirrorless or not, the...

  • I already stated equivalent cost and weight only applies to high end APS-C that are at the borderline of full frame. Guess arguing over how I wrote the paragraph is not really productive. That is ...
  • Reading the first post again, I can see how people can take the message as only buy full frame and not APS-C in every case. I think in this environment we are in with corporate shrills hocking ...
  • I think you are reading way too much into the exact words on the posts. I don't expect anyone to take my exaggerated recommendation literally. Full frame starts at $1500. People realize there are ...
  • I would say people who buys D7100 with the premium Nikon 17-55mm f2.8 lens are not the same buyers who are looking at a D3300 at Costco. You are paying more for a D7100, but you are also getting ...
  • I know what you mean, there are so many corporate shrills that mislead people. Difference between fanboys and corporate shrills are that fanboys will reason and contribute to the discussion. ...
  • You do gain on tele reach and on the wide end. Instaed of EQ of 88mm, you are now 105mm. More important, instead of EQ 27.2mm on the wide end, you are now at 24mm. That little bit makes a big ...
  • Yes, my mistake also. I was comparing medium format with APS-C camera. The Nikon 58mm is a full frame lens. Yes, Pentax would have to be a f1.8. Medium format lens is not quite competitive with ...
  • The Pentax medium format has a .8 crop factor (.79 to be exact). Pentax is not a full size medium format. Therefore, 80mm would give 64mm equv. 75mm would give 60mm, which is very close to Nikon ...
  • Replied in Cherry pies
    The Nikon 180mm f2.8 is a full frame lens, so is the 300mm f4. They are both full frame lens. Make sure you are NOT comparing full frame lens with full frame lens. Full frame lens has a larger ...
  • MF and large format cameras are still very expensive. At some point, those too may come down in price. Then the comparison gets interesting. I know you are being facetious, but look at the Pentax ...
  • Not sure what you mean by keeping the definition narrow enough. I like to keep the comparison about the same base on available cameras. There are hundreds of cameras out there, and each has its ...
  • That is what I am interested in knowing. You know some physics of light gathering ability or some other photographic principles that I missed, I am all ears. I even looked at DOF calculation, and ...
