There were some initial rumors the S100 was >1 stop better than the S95. Well, that's all horses**t. Better than Olympus XZ1/Panasonic LX3, same as Canon S95/Nikon P7000 and worse than Nikon J1/V1.

What a shame.

The mist and faint sunlight help create a melancholic mood. Well seen.

thx1138: Wow what a MASSIVE oversight to not mention the Tamron 17-50 f/2.8 VC and non VC lenses. How could you forget those two!

Never mind

I think the Sigma 150 f/2.8 OS HSM Macro lens should be on that list, much more so than its companion Sigma 105 f/2.8.

Graystar: I was expecting much better results. The noise is terrible...even visible when full image is viewed. Disappointing...

I am looking at IMGP0198-ACR now. I don't suppose you know what shallow depth of field means?

d3xmeister: I am blown away. ALL DSLR's look like cr@p now. ALL. Imagine what can be achieved from RAW.

But a number of those images are converted from RAW! :)

AMAZING image quality. I am curious how a 40 MP 35mm Full Frame camera will stack out against this. Can the best Nikon and Canon glass come anywhere close? Even when shot wide open at f/2.8, the lens still impresses.

On Just Posted: Sony SLT-A65 review article (159 comments in total)
In reply to:

Argote: To all the people wondering why this got Gold and the A77 "only" got Silver:

The A77 is comparable to other cameras in its class/price range (7D, D7000, etc); however, the A65 is undoubtably superior to other cameras in its class/price range (600D, D5100, etc).

This makes it easy to recommend other over cameras for almost all situations while the same cannot be said for the A77. In a way this could be a bigger victory for Sony since a lot more cameras are sold at this price point.

I wanted to point this out, but you beat me to it. :)

In reply to:

VadymA: Slightly disappointed. I find all images way too soft to my liking. Not sure if its aggressive NR or soft lens. Widely renown sloppiness of DPR samples could be a factor as well.

Look at VadymA's posting history. He is a fervent supporter of Foveon sensor... no AA filter... but the colors... no one cares about colors, right?

In reply to:

ybizzle: Fuji has forever rocked the foundation of compact cameras with the X10. You get m4/3 image quality from the 2/3" sensor plus low noise high ISO performance. There is just no competition for this camera right now. Glad I was lucky enough to buy one on release day.

Actually, the DR looks better than what one typically gets from m4/3 sensors.

What is this 12-24 f/2.8 lens??? I am only aware of the Nikkor 14-24 f/2.8 and Sigma 12-24 f/4.5-5.6 lenses.

In reply to:

Steve oliphant: Is it the best to have 30mp and a lens that can resolve 8-9mp, or a clean 12mp hmmm ,i would go with the 12mp and use ps to add pixels .if you want 30-40mp buy a medium format,they have the high res lenses you need.

You are obviously out of touch with the real world. The Nikon 24 MP FF sensor resolves a whole lot more than their 12 MP FF sensor. If they adopt the 36 MP FF sensor next, expect another leap in resolution
