Aasmund G: It's getting to the point where the best Canon mount body is a Sony, and the best sensibly priced lenses for Sony are Canons

Hahahaha... damn right.

magneto shot: rightname would be "C-medium format" or cropped medium format since that is what it is. its nowhere near the size of medium formats as reference in film days.

I thought medium format = any format larger than 35mm but smaller than large format?

justmeMN: A "'game changer"? Is it "magical" and "revolutionary" too? :-)

(thinking of Apple's favorite marketing clichés.)

You think different.

lucinio: The first medium format digital mirrorless ? Maybe not to much bigger and too much more expensive than Leica SL ?

First fixed lens mirrorless?

Shutter Locker: What really defines Flagship ??

A flagship is a vessel used by the commanding officer of a group of naval ships, reflecting the custom of its commander, characteristically a flag officer, flying a distinguishing flag.

Used more loosely, it is the lead ship in a fleet of vessels, typically the first, largest, fastest, most heavily armed, or best known.

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?

PixelShift, maybe?

In reply to:

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?

Surprise!!!

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.

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 :)"

Sarcastically true.

BigBen08: Hello, Canon?

Give Canon a break. They've just caught up in DR, one improvement at a time folks!
