In case someone hasn't mentioned it to DPR, the links to several of the RAW files pull the same image of the boxers.
The 24-70 GM looks very good based on the jpegs of the images I want to view. I'd like to see a landscape image with plenty of infinity in it. Let's see how the edge/corners stand up wide open.
dynaxx: "And for its full-frame range, Sony introduced a new lens class: G Master. "
Just in case this comment above is taken literally, the 3 new "G Master" lenses will work well with any "E "mount camera including the A6300.
Gee jack 0ff I doubt that.
Unlike Canon, Sony has a fairly wide selection of lenses for the E mount.
And yes, IMO, an L series lens is a waste on a Canon crop camera too. With the high resolution of current FF sensors, the reach factor of a crop cameras with 24 MP is mostly negated if you already own one of these high rez FFs.
Do any of you who only use APS-C cameras intend to buy to buy a GM lens?
I had pre-ordered the D500 and thought about cancelling that and buying the A6300 both of which would be for "reach" until I realized I wouldn't be getting much additional "reach" vs my 50 MPs cameras.
But would be a waste on an A6300.
Oh brother, que up the Startrek theme music.
Rick Knepper: Is it a Sony inside?
It matters to me. Why would I care what it wipes the floor with, much less a 7D2? Take your childish cr@p elsewhere.
Is it a Sony inside?
Rick Knepper: "A Leica rep expressed that anything over 24MP seemed excessive, and that the company put priority on the images and the experience, rather than the sensor resolution."
Tragically ignorant or dishonest, can't decide which.
I wasn't replying to you.
Why does this seem like a Sony-centric forum? Because of the easy adaptability, Canon users have been adapting many brands of lenses long before Sony released their first ILC.
DPR, if you would please, add the Pentax 645z to the shutter shock comparison tool. The tool is incomplete without it IMO. If you do not have one handy, I'll be glad to ship my 645z to you.
Well Simon, some of us get banned more often than others for less provocation so you'll have to understand why some folks get upset.
My main criticism about your review contents is the comparison of the subject gear to gear from other competitors or even to other models within the same manufacturer's line-up. Surely, a piece of gear can stand or fail on its own merit. Of course, some discussion of other gear is unavoidable, crop vs. FF for instance, but this can be handled generically I believe.
There is no need to insert a blurb about Sony in every non-Sony review is there?
Good God, one doesn't preclude the other. Comprehend that.
No, I pick them all. Please try to comprehend my words.
Let me rephrase. There is nothing factual in that entire quoted statement from "24 MP seemed excessive". to "the company put priority on the images and the experience" as if one thing precludes the other. It is definitely outside your field of vision to spot Leica BS.
Rick Knepper: I thought Sony's celebrated dynamic range made GNDs obsolete.
Mike FL, would you mind proofreading your first response and recomposing as it is completely unreadable. The application appears to have great value but I was gigging those folks, usually rabid Nikon and Sony fanboys intent on disparaging Canon in any way possible, who have poo pooed using GNDs as a way to control DR.
I shoot with Canon and a Pentax 645z which has a Sony sensor and used to shoot with a D800E and D3x. Obviously then, I know these statements about Canon obsolescence to be complete lunacy.
