vFunct: This camera isn't for the idiot that thinks a bigger sensor is better.
You're right, it is for the fool who likes noisy and blurry pictures.
Not out of stock in Europe.
quezra: Drama incoming in 3... 2...
You yust destroyed your image of a artsy fartsy landscape fotographer Chippy99. MF is great for landscape btw despite shallow DOF. You just stop down and use a tripod. Super resolution.
LTZ470: f/1.2 = f/1.2 = f/1.2 = Shutter Speed...f/1.2 w/ f/2.4 DOF gives faster Shutter Speed which is THE critical factor...I'll say it again faster shutter speed with increased DOF which is advantageous in many applications... ;-)
The A7 is not the only FF camera. Canonikon look it up. You are the most hopeless fan boy I have met so far. Be proud of it. Flickr is a site for hopeless attention whores. There is never any negative or even constructive criticism. People only comment and like hoping you will watch and like and comment their photo's in return.
Under exposed, harsh flash light. Wrong bird in focus. Resolution so,so.
Try finding a F/ 0.6 lens for the em1. You will have a much harder time. You can just use a A-mount adapter on the A7 and have access to all A-mount Tele glass.
StevenE: Should also talk about the angle at which light strikes the sensor. In FF the angle at the corners is pretty extreme, causing light loss and vignetting. This becomes even more extreme in mirrorless cameras since the flange distance gets smaller, like Sony A7 series. Smaller sensors may have an advantage in corners, especially in mirroless. I'd be interested in an in-depth analysis of the significance of sensor size, sensor design and flange distance
Only a problem with old range finder wide angle lenses on the a7. When you use FF SLR Lenses with an adapter your angle gets much less shallow because of the longer flange distance. Most vignetting is not due to the angle but the corners pushing the image circle.
When you crop a ff sensor shooting at higher iso that is not a fair comparison. You don't use the full sensor and the iso is higher. And resolution is les then 10mp when you crop to m43. Shoot at equivalent focal length and use the entire sensor.
You are saying that the shutter speed on crop camera's is faster with a F/1.2 lens.
gstadter: So, if I use cardboard or something, to block light from getting to left 1/2 side of the FF sensor in my D610, the resulting picture taken by the right side of the sensor will, in fact, have more "noise" because the camera had less total light to measure? (and not just 1/2 of an image) I've not tested this yet, but it would be a shock to me if the resulting image(right side of picture) actually became noisy just because I put cardboard over the opposite side of the sensor.
It will have the same noise at pixelpeep level. This noise is relatively more. Because you use only half the sensor you will inflate the noise more when viewing the picture. If you would have used the full frame the noise would be only half the size in viewing.
Great now I´ll just have to reference this article in future. Did anyone notice the APS-C 85mm F1.2 equivalent is more compact than the m43 one?
marc petzold: Since the release of that lens, i was interested when DPR would review this, thanks for this. :) a cheap alternative, for a DSLM: Get a Helios 44-2 58/2 Prime Lens, it does have a swirly bokeh, too. ;) Great as a portrait Lens onto a Sony E-Mount DSLM via M42 Adapter. Shot it at F2 or 2.2, and >2.8 w/o the swirly effect. Old mf lenses also have their very own "character" other then today's typical DSLR lenses...for instance, the older Zeiss T* coatings rendering a picture looking more "organic", unlike today's Zeiss T* coatings on current lenses...i prefer that older look.
The Cooke Kinic 25mm F1.5 will work well on m43
SeeRoy: An absolutely hilarious product. Testament to a luxury goods marketplace that can best be described as decadent.
Best described as cool!
Great results, they are screaming for some post processing though. Black and With this lens looks great as well.
Isn't this simply a name change and will photo's for os-x be as capable as aperture?
more clarity is not always better. Portraits and Bokeh e.g.
what is shutterspeed in movie mode anyway.It's not like there are actual actuations of the mechanical shutter. Purely electronic.
fmian: So will they be replacing mirrors for D800 users? Or free upgrades to the D810? Sounds like D800 was a premature release if early reviewers noted how difficult it was to get sharp results but Nikon didn't pick up on it during their own testing. And now the D810 fixes that and pads it with features that could have been in a firmware update anyway...Oh look over here at this shiny new camera while we sweep the old one under the rug...
Manufacturers will never improve anything anymore if improvements render the previous model faulty and they have to replace them all. Stop bitching please.
Zoron: 2014 is transition year to 4K, and this is the last chance for Nikon to milk money from 1080p, in 2016 when D900 is released with 4K.....D810 will be obsolete..
There are people who will use this camera just for shooting photo's you know. The majority of users in fact. Expeed 4 doesn't do 4k anyway. It will probably be in Expeed 5.
Thsoft: Why No 4K Video ?
Because photographers do not want to pay for shidt they don't use. There will be a D810v with 4k video at a $1000 more.
tom1234567: Not worth the monies total rip of from Nikon 3299$ not worth a quarter of that,souped up d800Pentax K3 is a better camera
Obviously you are not a true Pentaxian and stumbled into the brand quite by accident on your way over to Canon or Olympus.
