On Opinion: Bring on the 70-200mm equivalents article (328 comments in total)
In reply to:

JoEick: This article is very misleading.

If the point of the article is to tell the reader how a 50-150 works similar on APS-C to 70-200 on full frame, then there needs to be more thought put into equivalent apertures.

You need f2.8 on crop to roughly equal f4 on full frame. The Fuji f2.8 zoom has no meaningful size or weight savings over a Canon 70-200 f4.

Until we see more f1.8 and f2.0 zooms for APS-C, there is nothing that compares in light gathering for full frame f2.8.

There is no free lunch when it comes to light, physics, and lenses.

70-200 f4 I was about to write exactly the same thing. DOF of 2.8 @ APSC is more comparable to DOF of f4 & FF. The potential light gathering benefit of f2.8 is more than easily balanced by (average) better iso performance of FF sensors too.

bcalkins: "the on-board FAST AF system"

I'm trying to imagine an AF system that isn't "on-board" :)

You don't have to try, just google Canon FD 35-70mm f/4 AF
;)

Ridiculous. Not even worth discussion.
What next - if I use self-timer the credit for photo goes to camera manufacturer?
If I use leather gloves does the copyright belong to a cow (deceased) or farmer who owned the animal?

On Nikon 1 V3 First Impressions Review preview (643 comments in total)

I own it: 45
I want it: 75
I had it: 19

Where is the "I don't want it" button ???
Would seem appropriate, since for camera that's just few months old, 19 people already used "I don't want it" button in real life...

On Drone lighting could be coming soon to your studio article (129 comments in total)

Again, a solution looking for a problem.
Here is the idea - try fitting a 400W/s on it, use umbrella... just make sure that the setup produces no wind ;)

Langusta: I'm having a hard time finding worse camera in this price range.

If that's what you would bet then I'd say don't try gambling ;)

In reply to:

ekaton: Put a decent lens on the a6000 and it leaves mft and Fuji in the dust, at least for stills and irrespective of price.

Now find this decent lens...
