Last 4 words of the article sums it up nicely. "but, hey, 50 megapixels!"

I guess image quality is terrible compared to the Hero4 silver.

On Sony: An eye on focus article (758 comments in total)
In reply to:

nametaken: When you say it doesn't offer all focus modes for "3rd party lenses", do you also mean 3rd party lenses that were built for A-mount? Would the Sigma still have had the same problems of limited focus options if you had used one meant for A-mount instead of Canon?

I believe the adapter has to have a database of lenses "built in". I guess this is the reason why they are not so common yet.

Mssimo: Canons nightmare day will soon be upon us. All DXO testing has been done, DXOmark rating inbound. Will it score better than DXO ONE camera at 85?. Any predictions for 1: Overall score 2: Portrait/Color Depth 3: Landscape/Dynamic Range and 4:Sports/Low-Light?

Here is my..
1: 85
2: 24.8
3: 11.9 Evs
4: 2676

You may be right but I think resolution has upsides as far as general image quality even if per pixel quality is the same or worse.

How good would this be for low light drone or low light action camera (assuming no water or harsh weather conditions)

CopCarSS: They're planning to charge how much for a triplet? At $1699, they had better start thinking about re-introducing a Pinkham and Smith Bi-Quality. That's a classic lens I might actually consider spending $1700 on. But a triplet????

The price must be wrong. I think its still super high around $600 but no way $1700

Direct link | Posted on Jun 29, 2015 at 21:54 UTC

Meyer Optik to sell lens with three elements for $1700. The lens performance based on profits is quite high. They could at least made it not look like a CCTV lens

Xentinus: Nikon 85mm 1.8 G is a real gem!

If you are going to stop the lens down to f5.6, its an amazing value. If you are going to shoot wide open, its a different story.

On Otus Readings: the Zeiss 85 F1.4 Otus Comparison article (223 comments in total)

As resolution goes up, lens diffraction becomes more noticeable. On a theoretically perfect lens, it would have the highest resolution wide open. With higher resolution cameras such as the canon, use of wider apertures is essential to notice a resolution difference. Images were shot at f5.6. I believe f4 would have helped show off canons 50MP resolution a bit more.

Thanks for doing these additional test.

You must be crossed eyed.

Papi61: Sad truth: Apple is greedy, Taylor Swift is greedy, the photographer is greedy. This society has made greed into its main value. Despite what they claim, no one gives a crap if someone else is exploited in the process, as long as there's some financial gain. The hypocrisy is virtually infinite.

Will we ever reach a money-less society, where poverty, crime and ignorance no longer exist, as envisioned in Star Trek? Nah, more likely we will self-destruct in just a few decades...

But apple is rich, Taylor is rich and all photographers are poor and some homeless.

On Canon EOS 5DS / SR First Impressions Review preview (3412 comments in total)

The subjective user review comments range from terrible to OK. Not even a single "amazing or spectacular". Imagine how this camera will be viewed this time next year. My guess is that the price will drop like a rock (maybe starting in the next month or so). First drop will be to $3199 to match sony A7rII and im sure it will be down to mid $2000's by 2nd half next year. Its still a great camera, but it does not look as great when you start comparing it to the competition. I remember how much I wanted to like Olympus cameras back in the DSLR days. Awesome cameras with great lenses and crap sensors. When olympus went to sony sensors they already lost me but gained many new customers along with several awards. What are you waiting for canon?

I think the issue is the distributor. I wish rokinon or even vivitar would take over.

If it has tilt, it must create a huge image circle. This is good news for normal edge to edge sharpness since its essentially being cropped down to full frame at 0 shift setting.

On Opinion: Did Sony just do the impossible? article (1078 comments in total)

Im glad to see Sony went with a 42MP sensor. Before I would have expected sony to play the numbers game (at the cost of image quality). Like the interview said, 45MP sounds good....50MP sounds awesome. Marketing departments do this for a good reason, it works. Im sure its a never-ending battle with engineers. Its easy to tell someone 50 is more than 42 but its almost impossible to explain on a box what BSI is and why its worth the tradeoff. Good on sony and shame on you canon for letting the marketing team design your products at the cost of your true and loyal customers.
