On Sigma announces two 150-600mm F/5-6.3 DG OS HSM zooms article (135 comments in total)
In reply to:

Karl Gnter Wnsch: If the "Sport" version is geared at the professionals which do not care that much about weight, why isn't it at least f/5.6? As f/6.3 they are missing the limit of the focusing systems - and since that is a physical limit the focusing on almost all DSLR will be compromized and not function as advertised and guaranteed by the manufacturers!

The D750 AF has the following specs:
Nikon Advanced Multi-CAM 3500 II autofocus sensor module with TTL phase detection, fine-tuning, 51 focus points (including 15 cross-type sensors; f/8 supported by 11 sensors), and AF-assist illuminator (range approx. 0.5 to 3 m/1 ft 8 in. to 9 ft 10 in.)

So it will work up to F8. Probably F11 with the center point. Not that it is a good idea to use a tc on a superzoom anyway, but it is not impossible.

with the -3 ev focussing on the D750 it should not be a problem.

On Zeiss introduces 'no distortion' Otus 1.4/85mm article (336 comments in total)
In reply to:

mike kobal: those Otus lenses would make so much more sense on mirrorless cameras with high def EVF, manual focusing one of these properly through the OVF - even on the best DSLR's - is going to be quite frustrating
not a problem for the lucky ones who actually can afford to buy one of these, they can surely afford to hire the best focus puller in the world ;) and a second shooter using an af lens as back up, just in case :)))

They are much to big and heavy for mirrorless.

Sannaborjeson: That is weird.

They show only 3000x2000px samples on their flickr and all the samples are terribly over-sharped. https://www.flickr.com/photos/carlzeisslenses/14833959224/

And for some reason CZ bans people from commenting or asking questions on their photo samples.

Flickr sharpens when it resizes.

In reply to:

mpgxsvcd: You had me until "Manual Focus". Manual Focus would be great for the interior architecture shots that this lens was intended for. However, I need it for low light action shots which really require good AFF.

Depends on how good your manual skills are. You wanna go out and shoot some bats in flight?

Jogger: Sony should just make a module using their 1-inch sensor and a fixed wide lens. Add in XAVCS and that would instantly be a GoPro killer, esp. for professional applications.

Gopro isn't making any money. It doesn't need a killer.

Andy Crowe: > essentially the Sony Alpha 7 series at the moment

What about the NEX-VG900? Not that I heard much from that model after the initial announcement...

It's e-mount so it fits on there

RStyga: The Pentax 90mm f/2.8 D FA 645 Macro ED AW SR Lens costs less than half of this lens and offers weather sealing, shake reduction, and macro focusing in a comparable -not identical- focal length and maximum aperture.

In my opinion, for non-professional use, it makes no sense to choose the S system over the 645. In many case, even for professional use.

Let's give it a Leica then...
