Based on the current US internet infrastructure, there is no way you can run such a data and processing intensive software on the cloud. A 6-8 image pano tiff from my D3200 can easily go pass 100MB. That will take like 10 mins to upload with my 50 dollar/month internet collection. Loading the software live to the local computer is not much better either.
My guess is that the "bulk" of the software will still be entirely offline, and only a periodic validation is required. This kind of online validation has already been defeated on Microsoft Windows.
So in the end, more people will move to pirated versions, since it does not require a periodic internet collection =).
As a newbie photographer, Lightroom already does more than enough for me, and it's priced fairly. I guess CS5 will be my last CS...
Way to GO SIGMA!!! Their recent releases had all been top notch, and this one takes it to the next level. Finally, we see some real optical break through!With this, we are one step closer to the eventual 8-400mm F1.8!!
DonSantos: What aperture is the mtf measured?
It seems to me it's still less sharp than the NEX7 on the dpreview comparison widget... You'll wonder if Nikon really did left the filter out.
Well it looks like it's still less sharp than the NEX7 based on the dpreview comparison tool...
Base on Dpreview's studio comparison, the D7100 is still less sharp than NEX7
Based on this comparison, from a pure pixel peeping stand point(noise and ressolution), it's not any better than my $400 D3200. Of course, these two camera are in totally different class outside of pure sensor quality.
I think C1 looks sharper simply because C1 apply higher default sharpening and saturation. It would be better to compare the "tweak" settings across softwares. Comparing default settings in raw converters are like comparing OOC JPG across cameras, not very meaningful.
Let's put it this way:Your 35mm F1.4 L is usable/dreamy at best at F1.4, and pin sharp across at F4My Sigma superzoom is "usable" at 250mm, and excellent at 28mm.
See the pattern? Every lens has it's degree of freedom. High end primes and zoom give you flexibility in aperture, superzoom like this give you flexibility in FoV. All lens perform bad at their extremes, like the example given above.
Some ppl use their camera to create art, some use it document things. These superzooms are great choices when are you trying to document things on the go.
Is this crater lake!?
Eigenmeat: I like how this camera get more attention than the G5. This shows that people has more interested in a genuineness exciting fixing lens camera then those countless mirrorless models. It's all about the lens.
Haha that is so true. One of the first thing that people ask me about my camera nowadays is "Does the lens come off?"

It's an instant buy for me if it has raw...
MrTritium: I don’t find the EX2 aperture range that impressive.
Sure f1.4 at 24mm is a breakthrough, but f2.7 at 80mm falls behind the Olympus XZ1 which still gives you f2.2 at 85mm. And The Oly can still go to 105mm f2.5, while the EX2 stops at 80mm.
I didn’t find the full EX2 aperture vs focal length data, but I assume that the Olympus lens becomes brighter above ~50mm approx.
I take 24mm over 105mm anyday
100% genuin Tamron + $110, well done sony
Eigenmeat: The AA filter is way too strong... I still don't why manufacturer pay AA filters on such high density sensors... Compared to the NEX7 raw side by side, the pixel acuity is way inferior. I think Nikon crippled the D3200 in purpose to protect D800 sales =).
Yes, I know sharpening can even the different to some degree, but sharpening always comes at the cost of making noise more visible...
I think all these studio tests are not done by kit lens, they are using stop down 50mms. If you look at the raw samples for the NEX7, you will see these 50mm are fully capable of resolving 24mp apsc

Do this has the new Auto ISO implementation?
is the d800e coming up? that should give the 645D a run
