Agree with rallyfan. Sort of secondary nature of some differences in features compared to 600d. Although individual, I am always all about IQ and that is the "wow factor" of this very portable, solid built camera. I use dual slots all the time, but can cope with some extra care. Viewfinder.. my d90 had 1% less coverage, a non-issue. AF, a non-issue for me either. I focus in LV for landscape and shoot with a single point handheld. It would be a shame to over look what this camera really means, brings and the possibilities it opens. Good times..Hynek
35mm very sharp at 1.4 lens will be famous. I looked at bokeh shots and comparisons and that is the only area that is relatively weaker. Who is very particular about the rich background bokeh won’t be totally thrilled. OTOH, the ultimate bokeh cream is not everyone’s top priority with every FL and can be seen slightly overrated, like for me. I reckon the whole package and the very useful sharp f1.4 in this type of lens will make people easily forgiving in this regard and making them see this minor. As a side note and a MF one, I am very happy with my Samyang.
This is a great lens. Very good indeed. Nikon and Canon (ll) versions are better for landscape. If there are other considerations, this Tamron with very effective VC is the second best option.Hynek
What a nice looking lens, well done Sigma. I bet it will perform. Very good price for a start. looks promising. The Samyang 35/1.4 set the bar extremely high for me. No colour aberrations to speak of , not quite sticking out regarding the glare (veiling one; going by so far experience it is a hair behind the 24-70 Nikkor in extreme tests and the Nikkor zoom is not fantastic either). But it does deliver in contrast and sharpness including small apertures, it really does incredibly. built very nice.Hynek
It’s nice Nikon sent a message about the lenses ahead. I have little doubt the sensor and the camera will perform superbly.
I also think it’s a basic mistake Nikon went with this small sensor size. And I don’t like the design no matter how I try. It’s putting off just to look at it.
Again though, the design, the sensor and the overall performance optimization does make sense and goes together.
If this is the only mirrorless design Nikon will attempt, it’s a double basic mistake for going with this style and sensor size.To whom it suits I am sure they will have a great CX performer in many respects if not all. Hynek
Appreciate the spontaneous report Barney. It’s not only refreshing but the lens also deserves full attention. I somehow doubt the AF won’t be a first rate with the production sample.Hynek
Question - Will the links in the signature be active?Hynek
Glad to hear about the light skin mode coming.thank you,
Black colour has its undisputable benefits and a top position in graphic and is deservedly popular.
Seemingly little change in colour and contrast can have a big impact, though. There is a great scale of colour and grey gradients but only relatively few sweet spots and not much room around them. Making the main activity board pure black poses kind of neutrality where the loss of a slightest shade gets distracting and uncomfortable in frequent contact – like lots of regular reading. It’s usually fine for setting off a comment section or an advert bay and similar irregular field by it.
The previous version had the forums message board darker grey, not too deep dark or too close to pure black. So while the classic scheme is the same its execution has changed and has lost its right balance. That's why more complains about the contrast than before.Apart from this I welcome many changes and the better coding. Bugs and little things fixed along the way is normal.Hynek
Blacks in the centre and on the sides.
What causes the extra eye strain compared to the previous version is darkening the central post’s column making it pure black and lightening the sides. It’s not a wise move as the contrast increases exactly where the point of interest is. The text has got more contrast and it contrasts even more on the fully saturated blacks now.
The previous version had this in reverse order (light central column and the dark sides). This makes the colour composition based on this set uncomfortable and it also looks inferior. As if a bug one gets when a page is not loaded fully. got some time to put my finger on it. I definitely recommend changing it or giving an option of choice.Hynek
Looking nice &better. I am guessing it was mentioned before, just to support: the white background skin would be a welcome standard option.
Petrogel: This review thing is getting ridiculous !!!!!! in short while you'll be reviewing photo cameras belts !!!!!
Just the idea of reviewing borescope cameras poses a health risk so I speak for not doing that type of things.
Nice stylish toploader. I am using another one of Lowepro AW 70's, the last version is well worth the upgrade. The bag remains fully operable with total rain protection on and the tough nylon the cover is made of can withstand heavy rain and some abuse. What’s a real joy to use is well-shaped and padded internal compartment (like in a good car). Once we tried that we swapped the previous version in that moment. Can’t imagine anything better for a frequent, routine and quick pulling out/putting in than a toploader. Choice is good, not everyone needs it built like mountaineering equipment.
Some nice moves, the site deserves some upgrade too after all. Somehow can’t get to like the post rating and I never really did but have to acknowledge it’s the better face of our immaturity. so off back to the kindergartens where great deal of us belong. suppose I would be now getting some thumbs down;)
Looking like a very nice work.
I see the poster is not active here. found the exact spot on his/her website.
Where is it? not like I want to go there :), would like to know,
Looks like Olympus has done a nice job on that sensor. And the whole camera looks nice, too. I wish they overcome those recent troubles and are doing well; they are some name in photography world and have contributed to it a great deal after all.
