lac111: You need to test and compare the Tamron against the new Sigma 150-600mm C for about the same price point. Evidence is mounting that the Sigma is far superior in IQ and AF acquisition.

Sigma has two versions of the 150-600. Author only spoke about more expensive and weather sealed Sports model. The Sigma C model is a direct competitor with similar size, price and specs.

eno2: "Considering the generally good performance of the Tamron lens, at a price tag of nearly half that of the Sigma lens, it's hard not to recommend it."

Actually the prices are almost identical, the Tamron is 1069$ and the Sigma 1089$ at B&H. Sigma may be a little bit heavier (6.9 lb vs 6.0 lb) and bigger (14.0 x 7.7 x 7.4" vs 13.8 x 7.9 x 7.1") but it's also sharper and has a better focus.

He was referring the sigma sport. The lower size C model should have been included in this comparison.

In reply to:

Mssimo: Does it use the new or old style Olympus EVF?

Manuel must not know how crap rangefinder system is. Many Leica owners have to send in new cameras back to Germany to get re-calibrated. Sure, you could stop down, focus bracket or any other work around but the truth is that range finder system has always been terrible when it comes to accuracy. *replace terrible for "good enough" if you're a fanboy.

How about a Fuji X100M?

@Manuel Remember a few months ago when a monkey took the camera from a photographer and ended up taking some really nice selfies? Dont come back to me and say the monkey had the camera on P mode...that would ruin my excellent point.

@manuel are you aware that if a color filter is used (ie red or orange) the focus will shift? This has always been the issue with rangefinders. If you are doing close up photographer, live view or EVF is also a live saver. Focus peaking is also a very nice feature that you are unable to use with the range finder.

On Samsung working on slimmer RBW camera sensors post (82 comments in total)
In reply to:

Mssimo: I want to understand how it figures out what is green.

Maybe the issue is over saturation of the W pixel since it gets the full visible spectrum. If they properly expose the W, they would underexpose the R B and this would create more noise on RB color channel. I can see this maybe working for security cameras and other industrial applications.

nananananana: I wish people would stop assuming that dynamic range is a defining factor when people buy these cameras. You do realize that you can't see high dynamic range from a regular photographs. The only way Dynamic Range might matter is for people who do very heavy post editing.

We dun care about dynamic range. Stop assuming we do. What I care about is:

-COLOR ACCURACY (thank you low pass filter)
-LOW WEIGHT
-CONVENIENCE
-GOOD JPEG QUALITY
-GOOD APS-C LENS SELECTION THAT ISN'T TOO EXPENSIVE AND LIGHTWEIGHT
-FREE SOFTWARE LIKE DPP
-ERGONOMICS

Canon provides all the above, which is why they ship cameras.

We do not care about dynamic range or micro adjust. And by we, I mean the target audience for these cameras. People who buy these cameras have a life outside of photography, they are not pro photographers.

nanananananaver gonna give it up, never gonna let it down, never gonna stop running around.... trolling you.

You should download and play around with a nikon file. Or maybe not....You know what they say, once you go NEF you never go back.

KonstantinosK: "...they've garnered plenty of attention since then...". Really?

@justmemn If a car has an engine displacing 2.0L and they up it to 2.4L the next year but still has the same power and horrible has mileage....its not much of an upgrade. As far we can tell, canon has bumped up the resolution. People might still shut up because no one really expects or cares much about the rebel series anyway. Im sure bestbuy and other stores will still sell a boat load to non informed buyers. On a positive note, This camera shoots great Jpegs and lags behind only when it comes to raw files.

Direct link | Posted on May 19, 2015 at 17:03 UTC

for the price, I would just get the Fuji T10, Pani G7 or the awesome Oly OM5 MK2. Electronic viewfinders are now better than most small penta mirror style optical VF.

So many nice cameras on the market, canon needs to re-invent the rebel line of cameras to keep up. One thing is for sure, they cant keep this basic design and sensor around for another 6 years.

Mssimo: Not sure why Leica didn't just pick up the phone and call the 8 people it sold the cameras to.

Can't Be that many, camera just came out and I don't think it's even in stock at any stores yet.

Direct link | Posted on May 18, 2015 at 01:15 UTC

Leica is not to blame. It includes lightroom with the camera AND apple photos app just came out. Its the the companies responsibility to verily compatibility with all software manufactures.

Also, as far as I understand, the bug keeps the photos app launching. This should not corrupt the library unless the user deletes it before apple comes out with a fix.

On Sources of noise part two: Electronic Noise article (236 comments in total)
In reply to:

Mssimo: Question: As far as shot noise... Would a APS-C camera with a speed booster have the same low noise performance as a full frame assuming the same lens is used?

A light bulb went off now, I guess large(r) format lenses spread out light reducing the "hot spots". I guess thinking of it as a little boy burning ants with a magnifying glass. Given a fixed light source, the smaller the circle the hotter the light. Medium format circle would cause a very soft light across the huge sensor leading to more dynamic range.
