CaMeRa QuEsT: Wow, at high ISO the K-1 RAW files look almost a full stop cleaner than the D800, A7R and D810's, how's that possible given that they all share the same basic sensor?
AbrasiveReducer: If you use the pixel shift on a static scene, say a landscape on an absolutely windless day, will the camera tell you if something in the subject moved? Or do you get a surprise later, when you are pixel peeping?
Raziel Orlando: Nikon fanboys will not be pleased knowing than the D5 get kicked by the 1DX in dynamic range. Ouch for them!
Actually most Nikonians know D5's lack of DR issue. At least at base ISO. But the King of Darkness doesn't give a single f*** to base ISO DR.
Mlumiere: In fact, every other dslr camera manufacturers sales are BEHIND Canon
Before spice girls, we had back street boys. after spice girls and probably forever, we have justin bieber.
PaulDavis: They look like they were designed by Sony. If someone just saw the picture and not the title of the article they would think these are two new Sony brand lenses.
I just gave up all my FE Sony gear but it is still exciting to see new lenses coming out for it. I don't know why but I always find myself rooting for their success in this camera market.
Maybe because the new Samyang also using linear motor, thus the same design?
Very similar indeed. Hmm...
Edgar_in_Indy: Gee, whenever I've mentioned on here how it would be nice if some of the quality manual focus lens makers were to add AF, a bunch of people shout me down listing all the reasons why it would be impossible...too expensive to implement, Canon/Nikon do not share AF data, difficulty of reverse engineering, too expensive to manufacture, etc. etc.
And when I mention how a bunch of inexpensive AF lenses were made by various 3rd party companies in the 80's and 90's, they just kind of ignore that.
I guess I feel a little vindicated. Take that all you MF snobs!
"Canon/Nikon do not share AF data"
This is still true to this day. In fact, Canon is actively changing its lens protocol (allegedly) to cripple Sigma lenses. E-mount and m43 are different, their lens specs are available for public to see.
I want film camera with back LCD... I think it's doable, with a small camera to take picture of the image projected on the ground glass before the mirror closes for exposure.
Greg VdB: Interesting analysis, thanks. I guess it's too much to hope for an equivalent function being added to my Eos 70D through a firmware upgrade?...
Mupepe: Any chance of a firmware for other Nikon bodies?
"The point is to sell the NEW models :)"
BigBen08: Hello, Canon?
Give Canon a break. They've just caught up in DR, one improvement at a time folks!
G G: A brand new obsolete feature since phase detection can be implemented right on the sensor. This should have been implemented long time ago.
Exactly. Not too little, but certainly too late.
Old Cameras: I wonder what the design life is for these very complex lenses. Lenses used to be pretty simply and were strictly mechanical and all or mostly metal. A cell phone, for example, doesn't really have a useful life of more than 4 years - and that would be an old phone. But lenses are traditionally thought of as long term investments that hold their value better than, say, a camera body. Any of these lenses, after a few years and perhaps after being discontinued from production, might be one good "thud" away from becoming completely worthless. Especially if repair is either unavailable or prohibitively expensive.
If you want less complex lenses, get a Zeiss or Samyang. Samyang lenses are pretty good, I used to own two.
odpisan: If light is great - it is possible to make great photos almost with any camera.
Not if the focus is off.
Thermidor: It's an oxymoron to claim USB charging is convenient and inconvenient at the same time. If you're running multiple batteries, you'll get an external charger anyway. And to be very fair, USB charging the FW-50 battery is a LOT faster than using an external charger. By USB, I can get full charge in slightly over an hour versus about 3 with a dedicated charger.
I know ideally the camera should support USB charging AND come with a dedicated external charger, but I don't see any manufacturers doing this. So if I had to compromise, I'd rather my camera come with USB charging than not.
It does come with charger, but internal one. Well, not really because you still need 110/240v to 5v converter, but cellphone charger is everywhere anyway. Since no manufacturer sell one camera with two chargers, I think internal charger is the right choice. You can buy external charger, but not internal.
dansclic: Sony should ask Fuji how to build good lenses.....
Sony: Thanks but no thanks. Zeiss has got our back.
greypixelz: looks bad ass for the pric but still overall, as 50s go, a submediocre achievement from sony. that bokeh is stupid, all over the place, mildly better at f/2.8-4, and then lackluster wash. for the price, maybe, as a body cap when packing, but save yr monies for anythin else :P
Good one Scruntys. Low IQ = stupid bokeh!
PawPawDog: It seems many user complained that the A6300 getting heat up taking video. I wonder what's DP Review's take on this issue.
If only Richard. If only. :)
Tommix: NX1 is better.
endofoto: Nikon crop sensor D7200 is even better than D5. What is the purpose of Nikon here, Harakiri?
Better in...? One camera is better than the others in some aspects.
