It is a long standing joke back to the time when the site was created. As to the office monitors they are thus because you are expected to work ;-)

Dear Sigma - congratulations with this amazing launch. Quite surprised you managed both so quickly.

Now please hire 2 software guys (m/f) - one skilled tester and one skilled bug fixer. Do not add additional features to the software - do not work to make it faster - only focus on making it 100% stable. No more strange error messages. SSP remains the biggest hindrance for bigger sales.

And yes, I do own Sigma cameras (currently 5) and I would buy this in a heartbeat if the raw converter was fixed once and for all.

Dear Ricoh - please put this sensor into a full frame GR (and fix the dust problems at the same time) and I will buy.

xpanded: GA645ziD please. f:4.0 is fine. Please make it in black so it is easy to distinguish from the (standard) film version. Would appreciate it very much if you would use a standard Bayer sensor. 50 megapixels is fine. Thanks in advance.

Yes - they were(are) indeed wonderful cameras. I still use mine on occasion.

On article Sony Cyber-shot RX1R II added to studio test scene (211 comments in total)

"The Sony RX1R II is the kind of camera that turns heads."

Wrong. That titel goes to the Sigma Quattro series sharply followed by Hasselblad's rebadged Sonys.

On article Sony Alpha 7R II Review (2160 comments in total)

DPReview 4 Nov 2015: "But do these technologies add up to performance that can compare to the best of the a7R II's DSLR competition? In some ways, yes, but overall, no."

DPReview 17 Nov 2015: "...the a7R II offers excellent autofocus".

The 4 Nov article seems to have slipped your mind. May I suggest you either modify the 4 Nov article or this review for a consistent message. Thanks in advance.

On article Sony Europe introduces a68 SLT with 79-point AF module (306 comments in total)

"even in lighting as low as EV-2 where other cameras struggle"

Benchmark is -4 EV now so why on Earth does Sony write this?

Too little, too late.

On article Video: What's in the future for Sony's Alpha system? (269 comments in total)
In reply to:

Glenn Barber: Another Beef - why did you perpetuate the confusion that we asked for an uncompressed raw. Everyone who knew what they were talking about in the forums in DPreview said that we wanted LOSSLESS RAW - and preferably compressed.

@Rishi Sanyal - maybe this was addressed off camera or maybe I missed it in the interview. When will Sony bring uncompressed raw to all the people who made the A7-series viable (i.e. all A7 mark 1 buyers) as well as the A7II? If you did not ask him on/off camera why not? The continued support to existing customers is far more important than the very latest tech advance. Thanks for replying. EDIT: Typo

I think I missed it. When did he promise that A7, A7R, A7S and A7II users would get uncompressed raw?

There was a bug in the Blood Moon software though, so it will only happen if and when that is fixed...

Snikt228: But they didn't actually fix the major bugs with this "fix" release?

Does anyone's Synchronize folders feature work?

Never got the bug fix to actually work. Reinstalled LR 6.1 from backup. A big sigh of relief as all my photos were still there.

On article Sony Alpha 7R II Review (2160 comments in total)

Sony should hire Shakin' Stevens as a poster boy for the A7-line:

"You just have to shake fast to counter the shutter shock".

Fortunately Sony will probably soon change mount again.

On article Capture One Pro 8 software review (317 comments in total)
In reply to:

SmilerGrogan: The bottom line with this software is that photos processed with it have a distinct look that is used by many of the world's most highly paid professionals. So if you want that "professional" look, you need to switch to Capture One.

You said there was not one and there is. That is not smartass - that is the truth. Hard to handle?

Let me name just one to render your statement false: run as a perpetual non subscription software.

Owen: Lets see, do I want an overpriced camera with a fixed lens, or the Sony? Hmmmm, really hard decision. Have to start saving up.....

Let's see, do I want a camera that shoots 14 bits and has resales value in 3 years time, or do I want an 11 bit dressed up as a 14 bit. Hmmmm, really easy decision.

In reply to:

JakeB: No one here or in the Leica forum could tell the difference between an image from this camera and one from a cheap dslr processed in Silver Efex.

Everybody would be able to tell the difference. The Silver Efex Pro is a tiff file while the Leica is a dng file.

In reply to:

dougster1979: Sigma have shown they can Kick ass in the lens world, it`s time they applied the same logic to their cameras. Art series body eagerly awaited!

Would you be so kind and tell me on which camera it is easier to make user banks than the Sigmas? Would you be so kind and tell me which camera has an easier menu system? Which Sigma cameras have you actually used if any? High ISO, writing times (on some of the cameras) and the software are not good. Otherwise Sigma does not really need to change anything and when it comes to menus and handling loads of competitors could learn a thing or two.
