I'm not buying this Sony because I'm not mirror less guy BUT it seems to be a very good imager. IMO, ppl need far more time to get the most out of this sensor and I think some firmware will come to iron it soon.

In the other hand, the canon 5DS (r) is a wonderful machine especially with the good lenses. Ok you do not have THAT much DR but it is a darn good and ironed machine with awesome lenses.

This coming from a Nikon guy ...

And yes, innovation on sensor is good but some TS and 1.4/1.2 lenses in E mount would be kind of cool, if it's possible.

HBowman: Please, stop comparing those cameras with the D800 or 645Z. It come nowhere near in every IQ therm. It might lure the spectator sometimes, on rez only (and after extensive PP), but that's all.

Those are special cameras. Comparing it with any other brand (especially FF and MF) is just wrong (either for the ones defending it and for SIGMA, who just passively endorse it).

Get some intel on your interlocutor before asking him non senses.

Yea, you see, we end to speak and praise the Merrills and I agree with you. But don't you think Sigma should have refined the Merrils ?

The little paradox of aperture blades for example. The DP2m as more than the DP3m resulting in a better bokeh on the DP2m. Just a bit sad. Lenses are good on sharpness but are slow; I'm might say "simple".

With the Quattro you "loose" on innovation. Same lenses, different barrel. New sensor who guestimate most of the color infos. Looking at forums from Japan to France ... this oddity is not really famous, at all.

This coming from a former Sigma evangelist.

My clients and publishers do not accept any-more Sigma files because retouchers do not like to work with it. They did when Merrills was launched, for about a year by curiosity but now the ball is elsewhere.

Surface dust magnet, like the lenses (especially), not the sensor.

Ergonomically wise, The xt-1 is too tiny.

And my opinion about Xtrans stay as it is. I think the Xtrans venture was an error since the start and bring not that much to the final output.

And between, I'm before all a retoucher so I know how to develop sensors from xtrans to IQ 180, I'm paid for it :)

I'm Nikon user and got a XT-1 with all the good glass. I sold it because it is too tiny, dust magnet, but roughly because it is too tiny.

EDIT : and because of this Xtrans thing that I do not like at all. Useless at best. They should have plugged a normal bayer sensor and thats all.

HBowman: The lame attempt of Canon to go hunt on the RED scarlet playground. Not even close. The (pro) convergence already exist and her name is RED, but it come at a villain price. (and pros are using/renting it for years now, so nothing to write home about ...)

This is good at an ergonomic level but might be aimed at reportage (amateur or TV) only (tiny sensor, tiny stills, slow lens).

A red dot and a fan exhaust... this thing is just a marketing trick, like the author of the article. Anyway he got his long due cold shower with the realistic reply over here.

This is the ultimate rich soccer Mom cam-coder. (but we all know they use Iphone and Ipad to film).

On Nikon D750 First-impressions review preview (1418 comments in total)

Before all, a lot of Nikon users wanted a RUGGED BODY with a more modest sensor than the D800. This camera looks good and I'm sure it will be a success in his niche.

Calling him D750 is an heresy, a blasphemy. This thing is nowhere near what was and is the D700.

The D700 was/is a generalist rugged semi pro FX DSLR providing a BALANCE between File size, AF and functionality. It is a tank and his sensor is... well... pretty good by today standards.

Now Nikon camera are rather extreme.

If you want the build quality of D700 you should go D800 but then, some very good old lenses might suffer (you should buy very good lenses to do justice to the 36 MP).

The DF might have been a good camera if 1/8000 and D4 video and a normal front wheel.

D600 and now this ... are amateur cameras aimed at amateurs (no offence).

We just wanted a balanced, actual, D700. Nothing more, nothing less.

Nukunukoo: Why no AF-ON? Just because you decided it's an "Enthusiast" camera does not mean Pros don't use it. And 1/4000??? WTF???

Ye ... Me think I will continue with my D700 and just buying some more good glass for him. 15k shoot, it is a young boy.
