On Yongnuo creates near-clone of Canon EF 35mm f/2 article (160 comments in total)
In reply to:

Mark K: They should replicate 50f1.2, 85 f1.2 or if bold enough, the 600F4 IS II

Oh yeah. There's such a huge market for these lenses.

In reply to:

Retzius: Looks decent, but how many more of these minor upgrade models can they keep pumping out?

DPreview honestly could just post the D5300 or D5400 review with an addendum saying its a bit better.

Except that there's no D5400 :P

In reply to:

ttran88: They could have possibly reused d7100 samples and call it a day.

iudex, the sensor is NOT the same. The D7100 uses a Toshiba sensor, while the D7200 has a Sony one. That's why they differ ISO span and resolution (24.1 vs 24.2 MP) differ.

ZeneticX: Canon is like Apple now

they don't give two sh!t about the competition because they know no matter what products they roll out, there's a solid base of loyal customers that will buy them in an instant

"Apple makes the best smartphones, tablets, and computers on the market."
I can't really agree here...

AngryCorgi: "There's nothing in particular that we learned from Nikon or Sony..."

And that's why your sensors are 2+ generations behind Sony and Nikon and Samsung.

The D4/s and Df use Nikon sensors. Plus, Nikon always do some additional tweaking on Sony's sensors.

On CP+ 2015 Sigma Interview article (197 comments in total)
In reply to:

Scottelly: Sigma should make a 20-50mm f2.8 full-frame lens and a 10-20mm f2.8 full-frame lens, to go with their 50-150mm f2.8 OS lens, which they should update to an S model. In fact, all three should be produced as S models. Then they should make two long, f2.8 OS primes in the S range too - a 200mm f2.8 OS S and a 300mm f2.8 OS S.

The 50-150 f/2.8 is not a full frame lens. ;)

In reply to:

io_bg: What a great read. Now, Sigma, make some DX primes! Pretty please!

Yeah, the 30/1.4 isn't very good for the price. I hope their next DX primes are cheaper than it because most DX users are on a budget :)

In reply to:

bgbs: That's it folks, with these specs don't expect D400.

Papi61, a lot of things. First, a D8x0-like body. Second, 9-10 fps. Third, AF-On button. Fourth, Group-point AF. And quite a bit more.

In reply to:

lacikuss: Maybe this new d7200 is almost at the 70d level?

"DR can be recovered in raw but missed focus can't."
No, DR can't always be recovered in RAW. Still, you can recover a whole lot more from Nikon RAWs compared to Canon RAWs.

Zvonimir Tosic: Nice confectionery DSLR, that suits modern trends.
Which means, Nikpn does its usual job of not adding too much into it to make it really stand out and turn heads. It is more important to them to release another update in 12 months. Idea for next year's update: swivel screen. In two years, USB 3. In 10 years, it may be a formidable crop camera.
Quite Nikon. Quite predictable.

Except that the D7000 line is refreshed every two years... ;)

In reply to:

ed kelly: Sold my D7100 because I was unhappy with the higher ISO performance. I purchased a D750 a few months ago, and I am very happy with it. I was hoping the D7200 would have the same body as the D750. Didn't happen.

I am sold on the U1 and U2 settings with auto ISO on my D750. Happy they are included on the D7200,but not sure I will pull the trigger on the D7200 yet.

Seems to be a debate on which sensor is in the D7200. If the quality can be up to par with the D750, I think I would purchase it. I am a birder,and any additional reach is a big plus.

Ed

IQ will be slightly better compared to the D7100 thanks to the new processor. There's no way it would be on par with a camera whose sensor is more than double in size.

In reply to:

slippedcurve623: Umm so is anyone actually intrested in this camera over the d610? Perhaps its not my place to say (canon user) but it ain't no 7dii/d400 and you can get full frame for 300$ more, except for bird shooters perhaps...

I'm not a bird shooter but I'd definitely prefer it over the D610. In fact I seriously consider buying it to replace my aging D90.

AllOtherNamesTaken: Nikon better ramp up D810 production - demand is about to increase :)

Heck, they might even want to restart D800/E production as a lower-cost alternative :)

In reply to:

TTran510: Was hoping the 5Ds was a Sony sensor or have similar dynamic range. This tells me the 5DIV will probably just be a slightly tweak 5DIII sensor or maybe a full frame version of the 7DII sensor. Looks like I'll start investing in Nikon system more. Already have a D3300, 85 f/1.8g, and SB700 ordered. Getting the D750 when Nikon fixes all the issues with it and the first price drop. Still going to keep my 6D and 35mm f/2 IS USM but not going to invest anymore with Canon.

The 5Ds has the full-frame version of the 7DII sensor :)

In reply to:

goshigoo: 3 mm is huge difference in wide angle

I rarely see people using Nikon D4s or D800s compared to D3300 or D5300. Does that make the latter two better?

In reply to:

thx1138: Is this a Canon sensor or Sony sensor? 5Ds (R) all use antiquated Canon sensor (essentially 7D II sensor scaled up to FF).

Sony's APS-C sensors are larger than Canon's APS-C ones.

Yes, I can give you an example. Have you ever tried to capture the night sky in a landscape photo?
