Whoa, I was not aware of the EF to Sony-E adapter. Look like it is another yes for me to pull a trigger on A7II.

Sorry for my ignorant. How does it work at slow speed? Do I have to wait for the camera to finish 4 pictures? What if the object is moving? So will I get a noiseless picture, but blurry image?

On Fujifilm XF 16mm F1.4 moves from roadmap to retailers article (221 comments in total)

I want to see some sample pictures to see how useful f1.4 on a wide-angle lens is. I have been shooting Zeiss 12/2.8 and most of my picture does not need shallow DOF. With wide-angle, it is easy to compose your picture. Main subject is usually huge anyway, so isolation from background is not necessary. In fact, I rather see clear background in the picture. Am I wrong?

Maff maff: Sadly they have left out IS. If they wouldn’t it would have increase the versatility in super low light even further and I know this is a wide angle with F1,4 maybe on a body which is good for ISO 3200.
Having the possibility in the company’s to leave out IS on lenses is for me a deal breaker for body’s with no IBIS and the reason why I like systems which have this like Olympus some Sony and others. Here IS is guaranteed for all lenses and no option for the manufacturer to leave it out somewhere which will happen even on expensive primes like here.

If anyone need IS on a 16/1.4 lens, then he or she needs to contact a doctor for Parkinson.

On Apple buys camera-technology company LinX post (74 comments in total)

$20M is just pocket change. This company does not have a lot of technology. Maybe just a few patents.

On Sony Alpha a7 II Review preview (785 comments in total)

based on the image comparison.

A7II - D750 is a tie.
A7II is at least 2 stops better than Canon 70D, at least one stop better than 6D.
A7II is half a stop better than Samsung NX1 (good job Samsung).

Shame on Canon.

I love to upgrade to A7II, but I need a camera that work with my YN-E3-RT and 600EX-RT. Bummer.

Is there an Olympus camera as compact as the Sony RX-100 series with similar performance and specs?

steve ohlhaber: I thought the main benefit was better and cheaper lenses due to a closer distance from lens to sensor. There is nothing like looking through the lens in the finder. Its a big tradeoff to lose that TTL finder for the gain of some size. None of IL mirrorless cams are really pocketable unless you use a crippled lens, so its a tough sell. You are big enough to not fit in your pocket, yet expensive enough to expect very high quality. If there is a significant improvement in quality and reduction of cost and the finder is at least good, then it may make some sense. It seems like you can get a DSLR for cheaper that is better with many more lens options tho.

As an Fuji X-E1 and Canon 70D owner myself, let me tell you. The Fuji is much lighter to carry than the 70D. As far as image quality, Fuji lens beats Canon L and much cheaper. It also has a retro styling with more usable knobs and wheel. The EVF is clear and bright. I enjoy shooting with both camera, and if the Mirrorless continues to advance, I may lean into that direction. The A7II is very attractive right now.

Well, will see what Canon can bring to the table. Without new technologies, their Mirrorless will never see any significant sales, and will be dumped like the M1.

Dawn of a new Mega Pixel race.

All the sudden, your FF lenses do not have enough resolution to match these new sensors. Now what?

On Samsung NX1 First Impressions Review preview (1444 comments in total)
In reply to:

RichRMA: Canon and Nikon were idle as Sony got a respectable foothold in the DSLR and mirrorless markets. Canon and Nikon have nothing comparable to this revolutionary Samsung. Once Samsung gets its lens inventory going, it will be a force to be reckoned with. Canon and Nikon still dominate by virtue of their names, but this will not last.

While I agree with you about Canikon, but I did not see anything revolutionary about the NX1?
4K and BSC are not revolutionary. It already exists, just has not been in a bigger sensor.
Slightly ahead of the pack, yes. How far.. 8-10 months at most.

OK Samsung is already using TSV in memory, let bring it into the image sensor.

On Canon EOS-1D C sees $4000 price drop in North America article (249 comments in total)
In reply to:

Papi61: It probably cost Canon $1k to make, so they have lots of room to deflate the price. Personally, I wouldn't buy it if they sold it for $2k. And it's not because I'm a Nikon shooter, but because the Samsung NX1 is so much better at 4k filming.

just wait few months

Sony FE mount would be nice.
