Good that they finally took some responsibility for this I suppose, but I would think this has come just a little bit too late for many people and is definitely loooong overdue.
I had a giggle over this, imagining that it actually took them this long to work out what on earth caused those sensor spots! Also, I guess the 'certain circumstances and settings' must be those ones where the shutter fires - I had no idea you could turn that off lol!
There seems to have been a marked increase in price (and presumably demand) for film cameras and lenses on the second hand market over the last 1-2 years, an interesting (if entirely unempirical) correlation!
Doesn't Sigma have the highest image quality and lenses (recently) of any manufacturer?
That's a pretty damn sweet achievement really...
The more you lot talk about how mediocre film era lenses are....
THE CHEAPER THEY GET ON THE 2ND HAND MARKET!
thanks guys :DDDD
This comment section is a weird read!
We should have another poll: Who are the biggest photographic trolls of dpreview 2013?
Who wins? YOU DECIDE!!!
These articles are laid out so badly!
Hire a web designer, seriously
The sharpness is only bad when you don't consider how superb the bokeh this thing produces is!
I have a 30+ year old Pentax 50mm f1.7 that is sharper and has a flatter field than this at seemingly all apertures and it only cost me £20. However the Pentax lens I mention cannot even come CLOSE when it comes to the delicious out of focus rendering this thing displays. Don't mock it; it fulfills its desired role rather well (and hopefully in 30 years I'll pick one up for around £20!!)
All lenses are compromises, and this is no different
Pentax getting the recognition they deserve? Wahey!
If you want a GOOD and compact DSLR that doesn't skimp on features and has an excellent range of similarly compact lenses to go with it; buy a Pentax instead
Please go away Canon, I don't love you anymore
As someone who both loves and owns old film cameras along with new digital ones I would just like to say;
I bought a Pentax MX for £30 the other day, lol!
You can buy an amazingly good film camera with 2 or 3 brilliant lenses alongside an enlarger for easily less than this.
Film is alive and well, even amongst the young!
I would say this, having just bought an enlarger....
I'd still rather have a Samyang (or two for this price)
Buy 2 monitors, orientate one horizontally and one vertically. Not only will viewing websites and reading articles be much better with the extra length but you also don't waste masses of useless screen space by having SQUARE monitors.
NO ONE WANTS SQUARE MONITORS!
These comments are despicable, a lot of you should be very ashamed of yourselves.
This is more than a week early, surely
