jaxson: Lack of sensor stabilisation is the main drawback for me.

Why is no one mentioning this?

4 stops by leaning.... ? Sound at least difficult. It's a pity; having had A7 IBIS there would have been the same as 4 more stops of clean ISO with all my A-lenses. Will stay with my A55 for the time being. A pity Sony is no Olympus nor Fuji in their politics of updating firmware on old models....

Yep. I was just waiting IBIS.... Heck. Will wait two more years... Or jump ship...

Rmano: Very nice images, thank you. Although this time is the first time in your articles here on dpreview that I like the image much more with another crop... I really love the look of the top square crop, without the rocks in the foreground that are (in my very humble opinion) adding little.
Great shots anyway, and thanks for sharing!

Yes, the reflections are gorgeous. I find that the rocks in the foreground detract from them... Thanks for answering, I really appreciate it!

In reply to:

Old Cameras: This is a very attractive and interesting camera but the available lenses are limiting. There doesn't seem to be a suitable wide range zoom available at reasonable cost. 16-50 is a little limiting and if you go wider it gets pretty expensive. I have a D7100 with the 18-140, which is excellent. I'm not knocking the Sony but when you get away from the 16-50 the offerings get very pricey. I got a refurbished copy of the 18-140 for a good price.

If they made a mirrorless A-mount adapter (should be possible with on-chip PDAF) then you'll have plenty of choices.... I'd like to see it with my Sigma 10-20...

In reply to:

Kevin Sutton: How can it be sharp at 600mm on FF but less sharp on APS-C?

I think that Imatest really tests the pair lens+camera. So if you test with a camera with larger photosites, the lens seems sharper. There are very interesting articles on LensRental.com about that (they have acquired an "absolute" lens tester... I hope Roger Cicala will soon or later post something comparing the same lens on different cameras and on the tester).

Manah: This review is FRUSTRATING and unprofessional.A camera whose lens is too short to be used to take portrait shots should not be on the market and really - should not even be reviewed.

Hmm... sarcasm? (cit. Dr. Sheldon Cooper)

All great photos --- my favorite is #8. A pity is reserved to only US residents - I probably had no chances, but I would have liked to participate...

G3User: I agree, number 3 is a Photoshop fail. What I have noticed with recent competitions is that there is a trend towards using untrained judges. The judges here look like they man the gates taking tickets from visitors. Anyone with a half photography wit would not have chosen this one or they should have asked to see the raw file (if they know what a raw file is). Again, another example of the demise of photography, using just any soccer mom to be a judge is a joke and a discredit to the other honest photographers in this competition. Another Photoshop fail is in the first image, the boat to the right and to the distance looks totally fake.

Great shot - shows how the idea and the vision is important. Both for who can see the image, and for who is just able to whine...

forpetessake: As far as I remember this patent was discussed more than a year ago. Finally it got into production.
Though Sigma says it won't affect resolution, it will. The most sensitive color when it comes to determining resolution is green, but the sensor has quad blue layer. Though every layer in Foveon sensor is sensitive to the whole spectrum, the absorption is different. The thin blue layer with quad pixels won't make much difference in real life, the performance will be very similar to the 3 layer 4.9M dot design, except for strong contrast BW test charts.

I concord; while I can understand the original foveon idea (same color resolution than luminance, 4:4:4) this will simply be another variation of the Bayer pattern. So the correct question is... why? We'll see the result, but what is probably doing Sigma here is trading color resolution for ISO performances. Which IMHO is killing the difference factor they have with the Foveon sensors.

wolfytom: I don't get it? Why deform a pretty girl's face?
Surely the use of any 'extra' should add to the pic, not diminish it?

This is basically s photo of a pretty little girl, what does the fish eye add?

Fun, surprise, originality, vision, happiness... My 8 years old burst in laugh at seeing this yelling "how cute!". I concord.
