AngularJS: Tried this camera with the Canon 11-24 (via Metabones MK4), the Sigma 180 f/2.8 Macro (A-mount, via LA-EA3) and the Sigma 120-300 f/2.8 Sports EF (via Metabones MK4). The AF sucks in all cases, shooting outdoors in bright sunlight. The AF limiter helped a little to the Sigma 180, but on the Sigma 120-300 - no dice. The 11-24 is just hunting and hunting and hunting... The OSPDAF is enabled. In spite the A7r2 is a nice camera - for the Canon glass the 5dsr is a better option.
@RishiI am not going to pretend that I know those cameras or lenses more than you :-) But I trust your reviews.(that's why I keep coming back)
I think I like the word "extrapolate" (and maybe deduction) more than generalize as it's more scientific and represents the way you just explained above. Thx. keep up the good work.
RadPhoto: So, you do have D810? I am still waiting for the review :-)
I would consider buying Sony's A7RII but it's too damn expensive for me. In Canada it's more than $$4000 for a body only! And since I a don't have any glass for it (I am Nikon and Fuji shooter) I need to spend another $3000-4000. Hmmm. I will wait a bit. As Sony's prices drop fast.
@Joed700Thanks for the advice. I am not in the market for a new camera right now. I already have D800E and D5500, Fuji X-T1I was just "teasing" DPR :-) I had the impression that the D810 review is coming. At some point, it was considered, by many, the best FF camera in the market. It seems to me that DPR is scrambling to get any article about Sony's A7RII these days. They just see the momentum in the market and they just want to be part of it. I am not criticizing them. I just find it interesting. At the end it's their site and they can do whatever they want. And they basically want to make money like the rest of the world :-)
Marty4650: Or... you could simply buy a half dozen "disposable" $1,500 cameras, and throw them away after you drop them. You would end up saving money that way.
Your point? We all know that there are cheaper cameras than Leica!
@Rishi "disingenuous to generalize.."Didn't you just generalize about all DSLRs?
So, you do have D810? I am still waiting for the review :-)
Vlad S: I doubt that many consumers of photography really care about the effort it took to create a shot. People look for unique images. You can tae any popular landmark, and there will be gazillions of snapshots that get only seen once, and a few outstanding images that everyone buys in the form of postcards and calendars.
Some photographers have the ability to show something we don't usually see, and that's what excites people. Doesn't matter, near or far.
My thoughts exactly.
Naay. I've seen better. I used to like him but he's becoming boring and repetitive. And his "guru" photos are becoming snaps. He's now taking his photos during workshops or while he's walking around bragging about his "fancy" Sony and Zeiss glass
Is it only me or has't he become arrogant? He made me once laugh when he was making fun of camera "nerds" and how they are picky for details (he was talking about Nikon lens 28-300)! As if he doesn't look like a "nerd" himself? :-)
jonny1976: this man has a pretty basic portfolio, shoot mostly the same topic and place and thousand of times, has nothing comparable to serious travel photographer, and thanks to marketing and social has become a guru in photography...once we had steve mccurry now trey radclif....and people pay 15000 to learn shoot this mediocre photography....while a modern workshop with magnum photographer is near 4000.the world is fabulous.
Rick Knepper: As a non-professional landscape enthusiast, I judge my own images by their uniqueness to me. The first time I visit a locale, I shoot the iconic and tourist overlooks with some hiking. On the 2nd, 3rd, and future trips, effort is exerted to find something in that locale I hadn't seen yet. Emphasis on "I haven't seen it" (or shot it).
Same here. Well said, Rick.
Yep. Shipping and air travel is super expensive compared to south of the border.
Michael Ma: 5mm. I never knew sensors had to be so thick. I've had a Note 2, 3, 4 and S2 and S4. The bump never bothered me, especially with a S View (flap) cover which evened it out. I would much rather have that space filled out with a bigger battery. 2.5x of what it is now.
Why would you hate Steve Jobs?
Mikael Risedal: what is real world samples? if you don't compare with another lens?I don't care about dpreviews real world examples if I don't have a reference
Really? You think, Real World samples=compare with other lenses?
MMitchellorg: Sunsets aren't once in a lifetime. They happen everyday.
Is that what you got from the article?
3DSimmon: Then the People of Europe should sue the copyright owners of such buildings for obscuring the rest of the free city landscape.
Exactly! Those buildings are blocking my horizon view!
Searching: Unremarkable is what I see.
@ Jennyhappy2We get it. You LOVE Sony!
Jennyhappy2: The more negative comments on the RX100 IV, the popular it becomes. Everyone seems to be an expert Of which probably none of them don't even own a RX100 I, II, or II. Let alone a Sony camera.
If I recall, many felt the same thing when the original RX100 came out.
What's with all of those Sony fanboys on all photography forums?!!!?
Searching: OK, I see it is only available in CC and not CS6.
Why would you expect them to update CS6? You decided that the technology of 2012-2013 is enough for you so live with it!!
I like Joe McNally photography. A very good gift indeed.
WadeMedia: Now they need an Apple phone that shoots raw. They are making others look better.
I think you can have iOS camera Apps shoot RAW(TIFF)
