  • For video purposes I'd like to see more lenses with IS. 35/2 IS, 50/2 IS would be great. A collapsible 15-48 would be nice, too. Actually since I can adapt the 55-250 STM EF-S and 85/1.8 I don't ...
  • Not really equivalent. The Sony AF is much faster; higher fps; has more native options. The Canon has a better RF wireless flash system; touchscreen; via adapter can slow-focus a lot of EF lenses ...
  • This review basically makes me think a Sigma 30/2.8 is the best value for APS-C users at or around 28mm.
  • Replied in Adapter kludge
    Also remember it costs a lot, has no OSS (most E/FE bodies still don't have IBIS so you have no stabilization in lens OR body), and the semi-mirror is fragile and can get dust/debris on it. I would ...
  • If Canon can make the EF-M (EOS M) 22/2 for $100 then Sony/Zeiss can make the 24/1.8 for less than $1k for sure. They are very close in image quality and f/1.8 isn't $900 better than f/2.

    I don't trust Samsung. They didn't even have HSS flash available for years. And their lenses aren't exactly cheap. They are good at copycatting but not necessarily as good innovators. I have ...
  • I've heard this complaint several times from others and it amazes me that people don't even think to crop. Crop the 50/1.8 OSS a little. You still get pretty good bokeh and 24MP is a lot of ...
  • Based on the name, OP is a "she." I've kinda given up on Sony APS-C lenses as well, thanks to price and value, but thanks to Fuji/Samsung and MFT, I expect Sigma/Tamron/Samyang/etc. to issue more ...
  • You're digging yourself a deeper hole with these baloney claims of "blows away" and comparing the 55/1.8 Zeiss to the 50/1.4. Mirrorless has other advantages besides size/weight, btw, like rapid ...
  • The Zeiss 55/1.8 is MUCH sharper wide open or even when both are at f/1.8, so it's not really fair to compare it to the EF 50/1.4 if you were planning to use them at large apertures. Also the ...
  • He was talking about mirrorless being good enough for many people to switch to away. YOUR comments were to try to gloat over Canon's EF/EF-S lens selection being able to meet my focal length and ...
  • If you want to spout about DSLR lens supremacy, then talk to someone who cares. I sure don't. It's extraneous to this thread, which is about mirrorless. If it's to spout Canon propaganda, most ...
  • You are completely missing TORN's point. TORN wrote: "Fuji, Sony, Olympus, Samsung and Panasonic all have good otions out which will be more than enough for 95% of our average needs. Nikon, Canon ...
  • TORN said 95% of users' average needs are taken care of, not 100%. The average ILC consumer owns fewer than 2 lenses (varies by system but generally around 1.8). And even that second lens is likely ...
  • Bodies come and go. Lenses are forever. If you do not need fast glass or are willing to use adapters, then I'd say get the Canon. If you do need native glass, Canon is slow as hell in rolling out ...
  • No, a well-known Canon fanboy on this thread brought it up, not me. A lot of keyboard warriors who have never sold a photo in their lives make a big deal out of its deficiencies when it was never ...
  • The fake "sorry" last line of your comment demonstrates your own biases. I don't see what your point is other than an attempt to belittle Sony while pretending to be objective. Nobody is saying the ...
  • There have been various reviews and samples for a long time, such as at Camera Labs and Imaging Resource and DXOMark where you can see the sharpness fields for yourself. As a previous owner of a ...
  • I think I'm in the same boat except that I care a lot more about integrated EVF that other, I guess. Considering how often I use a speedlite AND EVF at the same time, an externally-attaching EVF ...
  • It's not a free lunch but that's not the issue. The issue is that the Photozone editor is biased. He would not even give ratings for MFT lenses when they first came out, deeming it cheating ...
