Ahhh, the zoom ring is flight-by-wired... I guess they did geared this more toward video shooters!

Eigenmeat: 8X zoom is barely a superzoom these days. Also, I can pick up a APS-C D3200/Ti5+ 18-2XX zoom for about 800$.

A APS-C cam with a slow 18-2XX lens will STILL have more DOF control than this. The RX10 is only F7.6 FF eqv when it comes to DOV as pointed out by DPR.

RX10 is a very nice cam for sure. I am just pointing out there are potential better price/ratio options.

Why are you in the COMMENTS section if all you want to hear are praises? Go read the press release for those.

I doubt the body only will be $800. That lens retails at 600 brand new. They have to a atleast give you SOME discount when buying kit right? I am guess body only will be ~$1000.

i wish this to have 24-600 f2.8 to 5.6 instead.

I think 24-600 F2.8 to F5.6 will be alot more interesting...

On Preview:canon-eos-70d (1311 comments in total)

Now I just want an EF mount camera with this dual pixel tech paired with an electronic view finder. Clearly, current mainstream PDAD just CANNOT deliver consistent accurate results...

On Sigma 18-35mm F1.8 DC HSM Review preview (333 comments in total)

I think DPR is being really unfair on the focus issue about this lens.

This Canon 19-point AF module(used in 7D and 70D) is not really known for its extreme accuracy. The same can be said for the rest of the Canon APS-C AF modules. Lensrentals did a excellent test on Canon bodies, and it can be read here:
http://www.lensrentals.com/blog/2012/08/autofocus-reality-part-3b-canon-cameras
In the test, they are using the 28mm f/2.8 IS, which is less demanding then this sigma, and still get very inconsistent AF results.

I highly suggest DPR do the same AF "evaluation" with a fast prime on the same body and tell us how consistent the result is. I suspect that those fast primes are so soft at F1.8 that it's hard tell slight focus consistency.

The reality is that current PDAF sensors simply does not have resolution to satisfy ever higher pixel count main sensor. With CDAF, this lens will be sensational.

On Fujifilm X100S Review preview (487 comments in total)

Can DPR do a formal comparison between ACR and Iridient on X-Trans. ACR does not seem to do Xtrans justice, no matter your sharpneing work flow. This is especially try for foliage and low contrast details.

See example here:

hey the reviews are free, and you don't have to read them, and let's face it, some of them are pretty damn funny...
review of the 200-500 F2.8 on amazon came to mind...

Sigma has done the impossible again!!

If they glue this lens on a DP body, let Leica place their red dot on it, it would be bargain selling at $11799 (at least relative to the F3.5 to F6.4 Leica just released at 3K...)

This Tammy and the Canon 24-70 F2.8 II wereannounced around the same time. Yet the Canon still outsold the Tammy by 2.6:1 according to number of reviews on BHphoto.

I guess the $1000 price difference and image stabilization are still not enough to overcome brand association...
