On In Denali Park in the Alaska: Landscape (Mountain) challenge (4 comments in total)

The colors, lighting and thick clouds make this an extraordinary capture. Love it!

580g? The more useful Tokina 11-16 f/2.8 only weighs 560 g.

No thanks

kimchiflower: imagine if Sigma released a m43 version. The APS-C one is uncomfortably large and heavy. The same size could be made in f/1.6 or f/1.5 for m43

Olympus used to offer a 4_3rd 14-35 f/2 lens that weighs 900g!

If they make one for mirrorless, it'll be lighter and smaller. And if Sony or Canon releases an APS-C equivalent for mirrorless, it'll also be smaller and lighter. :)

"However, while I can’t imagine buying the Sigma 18-35mm F1.8 DC HSM (mainly because I can’t imagine owning a DSLR again)..."

This explains why DPReview is pushing mirrorless cameras so hard. It's not just Richard Butler, but almost everyone in and everything published by DPReview seem to be strongly biased towards mirrorless offerings. Nothing wrong with that, just saying. ;)

On Canon announces EOS M2 in Japan article (619 comments in total)

Obviously targetted at Asian and Japanese market. In Europe and N. America where sales of DSLR outstrip that of mirrorless cameras by 9.5:1 and 8.5:1 respectively, there's no point in having a M2.

Not for Europeans and N. Americans anyway.

In reply to:

HowaboutRAW: Please explain in detail, what’s pointless about a full framed DSLR that’s quiet and very very good in lowlight, better than anything except the Nikon D4 and possibly the Canon 1D X?

The DF sure appears to be a good replacement for the much liked (still expensive) D700.

So no the DF is not some under-performing entry into a already very crowded market–completely unlike this Canon EOS M system then.

What's pointless about the Df? Price, size and weight. Enough said.

Lovely images. I wonder if this set-up offers higher magnification than the Canon MPE 65 lens

There seems to be a massive push by DPReview to promote mirrorless cameras. Just saying. :)

Nice photo. :)

Wow, the Nikkor 58 f/1.4 lens only somewhat catches up with Zeiss 55 f/1.4 lens at f/11 when diffraction starts to creep in. Even the antiquated Canon 50 f/1.4 performs better than the Nikkor 58 f/1.4 lens which is touted as "a premium standard lens for Nikon's full frame SLRs... designed to give the best possible imaging performance even when shot at maximum aperture." The hefty price tag accompanying the Nikkor 58 f/1.4 only adds further insult to injury.

Der Steppenwolf: Great quality. I can see Nikon and Canon sh****** their pants now. Thank you Sony for giving us an alternative.

OVF vs EVF issue is really not overrated. I used the EM5 with EVF for a year and concluded that I hated the EVF even though the camera was fully capable of producing great images. EVF will never have the same dynamic range, brightness and colors as OVF.

On Sony Alpha A7 / A7R preview (2381 comments in total)

Interesting that the A7R contrast based AF can focus faster and more accurately than the A7 hybrid AF.

In reply to:

Allen Yang: These two cameras would be attractive after Sony SIGNIFICANTLY expands its lens group.

Hopefully, Sony does not change their mind and shut down the money-haemorrhaging Imaging group before that. :D
