I had to pick the 3rd sample when buying ZE 25/2. Event the 3rd one is far from perfect (still slightly decentered, 5% of the image mushy on the left side) - but I had to accept because Zeiss said it's expected given it's a retrofocus lens... So having so many sub contractors is not really a good thing - maybe...
Nice shot! Despite what the typical DPR gearheads said...
DFPanno: See what happens when you are struggling with limited dynamic range?
It's amazing how gearheads keep talking about DR everytime. The end result is what matters. Unless DFPanno has some similarly spectacular shots from his supercharged DR cam?
The property owners better start covering their copyrighted buildings with plastic or something. Not all of those buildings are pretty anyway...
How come J5 is so much sharper, with better noise too?
Xentinus: Nikon 85mm 1.8 G is a real gem!
Strange, what I see is that Canon 85/1.8 is better than Nikon 85/1.8G - even with higher pixel density of 50MP. Otus 85/1.4 is better than both Canon/Nikon but the Canon is not bad IMHO.
Phototaker41: Too much noise at ISO 6400 in comparison with Sony A7s
50MP vs 12MP, congrats, you just reached a new level of 'smart'.
robjan245: DPR is being overly generous with a silver rating for this POS.
should have been a plastic reward, not silver.
Pic Man: I know someone who recently just bought a canon 700D for his girlfriend and he knew nothing about photography. He bought a canon DSLR because it's a brand he recognised and because it's a DSLR, so it must be good. Canon don't need to push the boat out with new features and better sensors because they have the brand. Having said that the 700D is still a good camera which will take excellent pictures. They have nice straight out of camera jpegs which is important to most. I also have to say that the 700d was one of the most comfortable cameras I've held. I'm sure it's the same with the 750/760D.
I don't know about cheap plastic American tanks.
AJDVD: Why I get the feeling that the tests in DP review are less thorough than before. Just take an old test from an earlier Rebel and compare for example the conclusion sector.And why every camera wins an award anyway. No point when everything is exellent. I think DP should rethink the point-award part.
It couldn't be more thorough for an overpriced plastic camera with somewhat outdated sensor tech.
Basically DPR tells you to buy D5500 over the overpriced Rebels ;)
Canon is not sleeping - they just don't pay any attention.
I've been using J5 for a month, the size is small but nothing small about the result! If only there were more NIkon 1 lenses...
nananananana: I like people comparing a $125 lens to $1000 sigma lenses and saying it's not as good. You want a cookie for that conclusion or something?
For the money, it's probably one of the best lenses you can buy. The only thing I find is that the bokeh looks smeary instead of clean, but that's more a personal opinion. This lens will sell like (pan) hotcakes.
Yes, for $125 it's NICE 50mm. If you can't use it then it's not about the lens ;)
princecody: I'll put my EM1 & Nocticron in Monotone mode against this Goliath anyday of the week in a side by side comparison.
@princecody you can continue showing off your lack of knowledge on and on. It's the beauty of the internet.
kfahlman: I've had the M246 for a couple of weeks now, since its release.It's an amazing camera, I have an M240 as well, so the learning curve was non existent.The tonal range of the files are excellent, far better than conversion of the M files through Silver Efex.
This camera is worth every penny.If you can't afford one, to bad. But don't knock it until you've tried it.
you'd have to be smoking cannabis to believe whatever huff is saying.
small m4/3 sensor against FF without CFA? for B&W? Clearly you have no idea what you're talking about! ROFLMAO
This is what I'm talking about LOL
This is DPR, what do you expect? people will bash it just because they can't afford it or at least have no idea about the IQ offered. Later on, expect some smaller sensor users that will preach on how their mirrorless being superior blah blah blah ;)
