Ultra gimmick and only 8MP.
TomasJacko: Snowman photographed at last
Where? Looked through them all didn't see one.
BattleBrat: Hmm... I'll stick with my Zeiss ZE 35mm f/1.4
Got autofocus with that lens on a Canon body?
Paul JM: What disturbs me is the fact that this lens, and its predecessor which I own and love, are not on the list of recommended lenses for the 5dsrhttp://www.slrlounge.com/canon-announces-new-list-of-recommended-lenses-for-new-5ds/but the non-L f2 35mm is ! What is going on Canon ? Do they really feel that the non L has better optical characteristics then the 1.4 ? Do they really NOT recommend this new L series lens on their new high quality 50MP sensor ? Do I sell my 35mmL and 'upgrade' to the f2 lens ?
They didn't list the 35 f/1.4 so people looking at a slightly old list wouldn't go looking for the "old" version after the mark II came out. It's really that simple.
Meh. Only 5 lenses and only one of them is high quality.
The Squire: Article is a bit piggy-ducky-horsey for the DPR audience, in my opinion. But I like the layout.
I dont think the Getting Ready for 4K is accurate, regarding PC/Mac specs. I've been editing 4K for a year or so and unless you are doing lots of channels and layering, a good dual core and 8Gb is plenty. You just need a fairly modern dual core which has more video codec support on-chip...
Tell us how you really feel dude.
happypoppeye: There is very little benefit shooting in RAW these days and its easier for a company to handle jpegs. Plus, jpegs are almost just as editable.
Did you read the article? It's not submitting raw files but a jpg created from a raw converter...other than the cameras raw converter!
Raw is and always will be a big benefit over jpg for aps-c and larger sensors.
This is like rejecting any photo not set to 300 dpi in the file's properties!
Androole: It seems equivalence is unkind to larger sensors as well as to small ones.
"$1500 for a 28mm f2.8? Who would ever buy that?"
It's perhaps an exaggeration, but it does say something that despite the 645Z's bargain price tag as far as digital medium format is concerned, it's still not a great value proposition unless you really, really need it. Especially since the 5DS has the same resolution, and the A7r II (and undoubtedly the D820) are nipping close at its heels.
A good couple of years away from a d820.
Markol: I'd be surprised if Samsung had the courage to go 12MP on their flagship, given how many people won't know how to read this.AND 1/2 inch is just a little bit larger than a 1/2,3" sensor, so not that big a gain in sensor real estate.Then again, 12MP would be enough if it is again a 16:9 sensor, which is to be expected.
1/2 inch means 1/2.0 so a smaller image sensor than the Canon G15 which is 1/1.7".
Not deleted. I can see your post but it says deleted. Try "ignore my premature post " next time :D
.. while earlier you posted samsung would be using even smaller image sensors in upcoming s series phones to eliminate the bump on the s5 and s6. Which one is real and not rumor?
solarider: Thank you for a very well written review. I 'm sure much time and effort was spent both before and after the event. Sony has come a long way so far... will be of great interest to see what happens down the pike. Maybe some of this tech might show up on Sony's upcoming DSLR's and something magic is in the future?
Sony doesn't make dslrs anymore.
PetaPi: Polaroid is really desperate.Nobody loves a patent troll !This is so frivolous !
Polaroid doesn't exist. You can pay to use the Polaroid name on a product.
tassienick: Monopolies are never good for business, and Sony being the only serious sensor manufacturer in the game is definitely not going to be good for photography...
Only serious manufacturer? Canon makes the other 60 % for their own dslrs and mirrorless.
juvx: Looks like EVERY Nikon sensor will be made by Sony now.
D5 doesn't exist yet. You are spouting rumors and nikon does not manufacturer sensors. They tweak sony sensors.
MustyMarie: Canon needs this part of Toshiba MUCH more than does Sony, especially if they could buy some patents too !
Canon lagging so far in the sensor field could really use a nice boost in tech, unless they are holding back.
BSI and on sensor A/D's could pull Canon back to nicer DR and put a mute to the critics !
Canon DOES use sony sensors in all their p&s cameras (smaller than aps-c and the G1 X sensors). Well not all. Canon did create a factory to make a small percentage of their own p&s sensors but with that market quickly dying...
T3: That's exactly how I see mirrorless: universal mount cameras so you're not stuck in any one particular lens system. Even better if the mirrorless camera has IBIS. Then you also have universal image stabilization across all lenses.
If you were a camera company why would you want to let customers use lenses other than your company's lenses?! That is unless you don't make any lenses.
D200_4me: "Sony has a huge lineup of their own lenses" They do? I counted 11 FE lenses on their site. I guess he's talking about any lens that you can adapt. Honestly, for me...adapted lenses can kiss my rear end. :-) I want native lenses.
Dude, a-mount isn't a mirrorless mount.
minzaw: uNIVERSAL MOUNT IS A pENTAX k-01 ............ without ANY ADAPTOR FITS all NATIVE pk pENTAX LENS FROM 1960s TO DATE
No, they just kept the same k-mount. That isn't a universal mount. Think universal remote and you should understand what the topic is.
