On Have Your Say: Best Lens of 2013 article (89 comments in total)
In reply to:

Raist3d: How about voting for more than one? Most of these lenses are really good. I would vote for the Pentax limited zoom. The Olympus 12-40 m4/3, and the fuji xf 23 only because I know what to expect better from ten than the other but the others look good too.

Ha. Create multiple accounts, vote all you like!

samhain: I'm picking based on which one I'd choose if given the option- and I'd choose the Nikon 58/1.4 over all the others.

I'm suprised it scored so low Tbh- for me, there's no question as to which of those lenses is the most desirable.

No, there is no question which is most desirable to you. You've now told us.

Tonkotsu Ramen: now how about firmware updates for all your other products sony?

Actually- almost all of them. Unless there's a good hardware-related reason the newer jpeg engine can't be rolled out to some (at least recent) cameras.

CameraLabTester: No amount of firmware will rescue a design that is originally flawed.

Well, at the very least they tried something different. Sales numbers will tell the tale.

Meanwhile Canikon churns out another iteration of the same. Which works, don't get me wrong, but is awfully boring.

RichRMA: You can't really vote for the Sony R's. They are far too new. Wait till they wring them out a bit more.

I assure you, you can indeed vote for the Sonys.

In reply to:

RichRMA: Do they have an I.S. mode that works on a tripod? Is someone likely to be using this hand-held?

Of course people are going to use it handheld. It's a 150-600, not a 600, and even if it were a straight 600 people would still use it handheld.

In reply to:

mrc4nl: as a m43 user a rectininear 10mm is great, the question for me is which mount should i choose.

a "native" m43 mount may yield better results (because a adapter will introduce small misalignments)

Or i choose i Nikon mount, so i can use it on a nikon body, but also on a speedbooster gaining one stop and perhaps even better sharpness.

Yes you can if you are perfectly happy with a center crop, and in many cases you could be.

In reply to:

expressivecanvas: Looks like Nikon is choosing to behave like Kodak in their last days in the camera business with logic like if you can't make money in the camera business, then try to make money in the courtroom. Perhaps we should be asking whether Nikon is headed down the same road.

Big corporation or profitless sole proprietorship: You create something. Someone makes a look alike that may keep naive grandmothers from buying your product for their grandkids. You do what?

It's cool. That money we spent making things look pretty is excellently spent on someone else milking it for all it's worth.

or

Make them stop selling it.

I can't believe this is an issue, I really can't.

In reply to:

Rjansenbr2: I have the same issues with the D610.

If you're serious, were there issues with the d600? If not, and with the extremely minor changes between the two, it would look like Nikon was effectively sabotaging Sigma.

Luego: The loud shutter sound is a real turn-off for me. Hopefully Sony will address this in their future version.
Listen to this hollow sound of the shutter: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WmS2fUngz2o:

I dig a loud shutter. There. I said it. Couldn't give a sh!t less about flying under the radar. Haven't had a bride/groom so much as mention it, either.

In reply to:

justmeMN: If you use the big, bulky, depicted adaptor, that defeats the purpose of buying a compact camera.

So, if you use an adapter to use SLR-sized lenses for a package that's the size of an SLR when you need to, and put a smaller lens on when you don't, it makes no sense to have the smaller lens/camera when you don't necessarily need the SLR lenses?

Makes perfect sense. Thanks for talking some into me.

On Tamron to develop 150-600mm F5-6.3 ultra-telephoto zoom article (193 comments in total)
In reply to:

Lee Jay: For it to be useful, it has to be sharp wide open at the long end on high pixel density sensors. If it isn't you might be better off with a sharp 400/5.6 and upresing. If it is, it could be a game changer.

How's that 400/5.6 perform at 200mm?

Your opinion only stands with a teeny tiny narrow viewpoint that this 4x zoom is no more useful than a 600/6.3.

In reply to:

hiro_pro: this should be the kit lens for the Nikon DF. sorry i got caught up in the hype.

i have had great success with tamron and VC. i cant wait to see this in the local shop and give it a try. i wonder if the VC will be enough to hand hold this beast at 600?

anyone want to guess how long this lens will be when racked out to 600?

and how much is a 95 mm polarizer? rhetorical. please dont answer.

As someone who hand holds a 600/4... me. I want to hand hold a 5-6lb camera/lens setup.

Thanks for helping me make up my mind, Nikon:
Sony A7R, here I come - just the thing to complement my OlyEM5.
Buh-bye, Nikon.

Significant.

For those that have become accustomed to both, a "TV screen". If we were shooting film, our conclusions might be different. People can talk to no end about realism when looking through that window, but as scenes change that subtle turn of a dial and seeing it real time take effect in the end exposure puts those "window" people at a significant disadvantage.

beavertown: Everybody sees this silly overpriced rubbish will go get the M43 cameras.

Nikon is dying.

S, O will survive eventually.

Canon will always play catch up.

Have to agree with Gentleman Jim. Here I am years later and I've still not owned a camera that was better than the Sony a850. And it was lackluster in some areas at release. Color, though... christ. Beautiful.

"A camera with 36mp with no in-body I.S. is nutty"

That's a d800.

"A mirror is a feature, not a handicap"

So is using essentially every lens ever made on your camera. In that instance, the mirror is a handicap.
