On Sony reportedly shifting focus to full-frame cameras article (356 comments in total)

Thorgrem: So APS-C e-mount is good as dead. The last APS-C lens came in 2013....

Yeah. That is Sony. You welcome them. You buy e-mount. You wait the lenses. They ship new bodies every 6 months and still no lenses. With your money they invest in sensors. Suddenly they go FF and say you good bye. ;)

Jacques Cornell: Looks premium, but f4.0-6.3? Ugh. I would have liked a shorter range (100-300 or 100-250) and a constant f4 aperture.

You shoot events at 800mm ? Sounds like paparazzo to me :p

Really nice. I've lived in South Korea for years and this reminds me of my time there. Scenaries are wonderful and hiking is very nice. I can recognize the typical korean style everywhere. Colors, style, traditional buildings, attitude of people.
I wish I could visit North Korea one day. It will be like visiting South Korea 50 years ago.

How does the body performs with M lenses ? Especially wide ones ?

It's the best camera ! I use my Leica equipment to take pictures but also as a status symbol. It makes me feel proud to have something others cannot buy. I feel better when I have this feeling of superiority towards "the others". More than a camera, this Leica is an experience of Life. A leisure attitude than just a few amount of people, familiar with ergonomics principles, beautiful design and simplicity can understand.

justmeMN: No red dot, no Leica logo, no sale. :-) The purpose of buying a Leica is to show off the fact that you have an expensive camera. :-)

Exactly. And that's the reason why i bought 10.000+ euros worth Leica equipment. Now, we such a camera around my neck guess who gets the ladiiieeessss ;)

MPS Photographic: Using a $5950 Leica 28mm F1.4 lens doesn't automatically make you a great photographer. Using a $135 Nikon 50mm F 1.8D lens doesn't automatically make you a bad photographer.

However, if your attitude is "Only rich a-holes buy Leicas", or "Nikons and Canons etc. are only fit for the common rabble", then that automatically makes you a douche photographer.

Disclosure: That lens costs more than my car, computer and photography gear combined.

RRJackson: When I see things like this it always reminds me of the story of the Marquis de Condorcet. Fleeing the French Revolution and certain death, he stopped at a tavern for a meal. He asked for an omelet and when asked how many eggs he wanted, his reply was, "A dozen." His answer betrayed his station and he was returned to Paris for execution, although he was found dead in his cell before he could face the guillotine.

I prefer to travel with bags that seem horribly cheap. Saves me trouble in the long run. I actually wish someone would build a digital camera that looks like a disposable Kodak Funsaver. Something I could take into deepest, darkest Don't-Rob-Me-Istan without it attracting attention.

That's the reason why I use sand paper systematically on all my Leica gear so it looks rubbish and I feel more safe.

What an utter waste of money

micksh6: It's easy to see why this happened. When too many absolutely unnecessary gimmicks like
1. Leica
2. B&W-only camera
3. Apple
4. Stupid Photo app
meet in once place, the amount of thoughtless irrationality reaches tipping point. And then user, who created this festival of irrelevance, has to be punished.

I can't think of anyone who might combine all these hipster things in one place, but apparently such people exist, and maybe this event will teach them to consider their tools more thoroughly.

This is just a value judgement. Plain and simple. It has no value and is rather idiotic.

Kiril Karaatanasov: Is this version of Sony A7 with monochrome sensor and bulky body?

Anyway seems Sony sold Leica all of the tech for this camera except the metal body. May be this is the next iteration of the celestial cameras from Hassleblad that were selling overpriced NEX-7 and A99 cameras for while. We got to give it to Leica they even removed the color filter!

Amazing...but my 27 inch monitor is not large enough to display my 10mp Leica M8 files at 100% And I don't even talk about reviewing a picture in vertical mode...which is ridiculously small even on 27 inches. Don't you think this resolution war is a bit overdone ?

maxnimo: I'm not so sure about 4K at15 fps... it seems too fast. I'd prefer 5 fps. Slower is always safer, that's what grandma used to say.

Have no idea on what you could do with 4K 15 fps.

revio: @dark goob:

It´s "selfies" not "selphies". ;-)

Got cha; now, it seems you are as good at spelling as you possess knowledge for real about what Nikon 1´s are capable of.

My sister has a V1 to her and her family´s great satisfaction. It focuses faster than my OM-D E-M5 does with native m43 glass...and images are GREAT seen on a computer screen or on a large hi rez TV!! Period.

Of course noise at hi iso or at dark shooting conditions is worse than from the M-5 but they are different kinds of cameras/systems, so for those who need/want the speed and size advantage the 1-series is absolutely not "sh*t" like you seem to believe. "Believe", not know!

(I may have spelled something wrong, but English isn´t my first language)

End of rant, just had to...

Hulk hogan said so ?

In reply to:

wolfie: This is what the J1 should have been (or even the V1) - a straightforward design instead of the offbeat offerings on most so far with odd control positions or even controls missing and buried in menus. Looks small enough, and cheap enough, to replace my Canon G12 for a compact walkabout camera.

Marketing rule 1: if you provide a perfect product at first, how will you manage to sell future products ?

I've seen similar pictures to the 1st one in many occasions. It seems these fishermen are more used to tourists than they seem to be.

star shooter: All those night shots of Earth, no wonder Light Pollution is killing the night skies for stargazers. If an Alien wanted to invade Earth, all they'd have to look for, is a lit-up planet! These shots mean nothing to me. Just a few happy snaps taken by someone being paid to do it.

Dont worry for aliens. American heroes may save the humanity, once again, a 4th july.
