dbm305: First fast aperture 85 with stabilisation? Zeiss Batis Sonnar 85mm 1.8 T*!!!!!

So it's even simplier - it really does have it :)

Zeiss Batis Sonnar 85mm 1.8 T* doesn't have a vibration reduction capabilities. It's as simple as that.

CosminMunteanu: Uhh, nice. As expected, to me it would be the best tool. Combined with (now, quite old) 17-55mm Nikkor (maybe with the sb910 too) makes one hell of a combo ;-)

I'd say the best standard Zoom NIKKOR lens for D500 is the new VR 16-80/2.8-4E ...

Compared to 17-55/2.8 it's a 16-55/2.8-3.5 lens with a 55-80/3.5-4 extension ... + VR ;)

Edymagno: Near perfect specs. But the lack of built-in flash ruined it completely for me.

No Memory Stickā„¢ card slot ... totally ruined it for me.

The Rale: I apologize for my ignorance but I am struggling with application of whole ISO-invariance thing. Since shooting at e.g. ISO100+5stops is "almost" as good as ISO3200, why not just shoot ISO3200? Can somebody give me real life example where this would be beneficial?

To preserve the highlights; you underexpose while shooting and then lift the shadows in post.

Not that far away, I suppose ...

Jefftan: 14mm F2.8 can use lens filter or not?
It seem to have a build in lens hood that would stop the use of filter
anyone know?
Thanks

Oh, c'mon ... IT WILL NOT ACCEPT FILTERS.
Wanna bet?

It's pretty obvious, it cannot take filters ...

So basically we'd pay for our prizes on our own ... that alone is the reason I will not enter the competition ...

Well then ... damn, I guess it lokks like I won't be buying it then. I'll probably look for a used D300s, which doesn't exhibit moiré problems ...

Not in RAW, so I don't really care ...

The best D-SLR camera just became (even more) perfect.

Photo_AK: I know it's a fast lens, but I can see problems with using a 150mm (equiv.) lens on a modern high-res camera. It's going to be a chalenge getting perfectly sharp images with 24+ mpix sensors with shutter speeds bellow at least 1/250s ...

OK. So you do not want to get it. I can live with that, I couldn't care less.

Today. Today's "majority of people" do not use 50+ mpix cameras, while tomorrow majority will. The lens is not future-proof, get it?

And it's equivalent to 80-160mm on Canon 7D, it doesn't really matter if it's a DC lens or not. It's efective focal length is 150mm on Nikon bodies and 160mm on Canon bodies. The 'rule' of thumb says ( in non image stabilized situations) one is to choose a shutter speed with a denominator that is at least the same/close or better yet larger than the efective focal length used. Which is 1/160s or twice as much on high-res bodies (36+ mpix) - 1/320s. Get it?

Not to mention 7D MkII IS A HIGH-RES camera. You see, the 7D MkII has the exact same resolution as the 6D but on a smaller APS-C sized sensor. If you were to enlarge the 7D MkII's sensor to FF, you'd get 51.6 mpix.

The resolution on 7D MkII and 5DS is basically the same, just the pixel count on different sized sensors differs.

Get it now?

Ken Aisin: Hey Sigma, please consider making a radio controllable flash system. Since Nikon is not interested in making one....

Where have U been for the past months?

When? With the introduction of 5DS and 5DSr, that's when.

DukeCC: I don't care if it is stabilized, it still needs to cost less than the Nikon 85 f/1.8.

Well, than your opinion is also irrelevant, because you mentioned a lens, no one else mentioned; Zeiss Batis. And why on Earth would you mention the Tamron 35/1.8 and Batis 85/1.8 in the comment section of the news article about 90/2.8 Macro lens? See - completely irrelevant.

No, not 10, only 1. But 10/10 is a more valid info than 1/10, right?

I am one of the "actual users," but I'm only using the 45/1.8 Tamron, which has AFAIC really nice bokeh, nicer than both of the 50G Nikkors. So I was really surprised to hear from you the 35/1.8 Tamron doesn't have similar performance and I was after the info if that is a "fact," confirmed in more reviews, or is it just your opinion. Which doesn't matter - because (in my view) it's not based on anything relevant.

You see, I don't base my opinions on other people's samples, I form one based on my own samples. But I do like to investigate other people's opinions prior to that.
