  • We haven't seen a new APS lens for almost 2 years.  There are still small affordable bodies though. Why can't Sony make anymore 'compact' APS lenses?  Did they give up?   Actions speak louder than ...
  • I fear this is Sony's attitude too.   If we are not willing to pay $1100 per lens, the heck with us and settle for fixed lens or P&S camera. Canon and Nikon are selling 85mm F/1.8 lenses in the ...
  • If you want small apertures maybe.  one example of many that is given is, every other system on the planet seems to have apsc F/2.8 zooms.  I see arguments about the Pentax/D7200/D5500/NX1 using ...
  • On the list there is an 18-200mm lens, another 18-200mm lens, and look there, another 18-200mm lens. A couple years ago I e-mailed Sony asking for an inexpensive 70-100mm F/1.8 lens for ...
  • Canon, Nikon, Pentax and Sony all make different format cameras, and it was implied in another thread that Nikon and Canon no longer release APS-C lenses. So for fun I checked when each company ...
  • Sony is known for very "thick" NR at high ISOs.  With JPGs we never know all the processing used. I want to see DxO test the A7ii in the continuous mode mentioned above to see how much things drop. ...

    It is difficult not to laugh when the gear heads espouse DxO scores being more important than real life experience and results - usually only when it suits them. :)
    DxO only measures one...

  • That has to be one of the dumbest posts I ever read. Not all dogs have hair, not all dogs have tails, not all dogs have 4 legs.  Saying a dog has hair, 4 legs and a tail must be wrong.  Holy cow, ...
  • Any thoughts on a possible new J5 with a new sensor and 4K video?  It looks similar to the one in the FZ1000. Different rumor sites mention it, but rumors do not always come to fruition.
  • An 85mm F/1.4 lens, which I have been asking for the past couple years, on an A6000 would be about the same as a 135mm F/2 FE lens in an A7.  The difference being the 85mm would be smaller lighter ...
  • Not much has changed. The NEX 6 also was over hyped too. Guys could get in focus pictures, but the hit rate was very overstated. Over the past year it appears to be the same with the A6000. ...
  • Commented on Nikon D5500 real-world samples article

    Not just 4/3rds, but APS sensors too. The D5300 has over 1 EV more than the Sony's A5100 (newest APS), so I wonder if Nikon will improve up that.

  • Commented on Sony Alpha 7S Review preview

    Crazy. The D5200 - 2 models old - is a better camera at base ISO than the A7s. Noise is clean and the D5200 has almost 1 EV more DR!
    Video is outstanding, but daily use for stills its "meh".

  • I'm not an electronics expert, but I wonder if Sony uses a lower voltage to keep overheating in check, IBIS might create more heat and more battery drain. The A7ii is a slight step down from ...
  • One can pull more detail from the shadows with a D5200 from images shot at base ISO.  Important to landscape shooters or any high DR scenes like sunny days.  Save $1500 adn end up with better ...
  • Not sure how, but it should be another Nikon APS-C camera that beats the latest Sony FF cameras with higher DR at base ISO. Landscape shooters as well as action shooters will like this updated...

  • So, originally Sony bought Minolta and made DSLRS. Then they decided SLTs were a better technology because of the EVF and no moving mirror. Then they said a small portable mirrorless cameras were a ...
  • Surprising the older D5200 also beats the A7ii at base ISO too.  Henry in the E-mount forum said this is the place when DR matters most for comparisons (base ISO). There is a noticeable difference ...
  • The article makes some good points about lower IQ.  Older cameras, cheaper cameras, with crop sensors -D5300, D7100 are able to beat the A7ii at base ISO with higher dynamic range.  In the studio ...
