atamola: oh my...the number one feature in the A7 II for 90% of potential buyers/switchers/upgraders is the IBIS claiming 4.5 stops... and yet, the geniuses with the camera did not even try to go below the 1/focal length rule
yes, I'm quite sure it's informative to me. Thanks again.
"There were some of those 200mm shots taken at 1/20, 1/30, 1/50s - they were blurry. Did you want us to post those?"
This is informative for me. Thanks.
I stand corrected... I should have said "in all but one... the geniuses... forgot to test the most salient feature of the camera"
That shot should have been taken at 1/25 and f/11 or so to be informative.
Same applies to many other shots here.

- do you hear that?- ...nope.- don't you hear that?- No, I don't. What?- That silence. That deep silence at Canikon HQs.
I never found a compelling reason to switch from Nikon to Canon.
Now, i think it's only a matter of time and some planing for me to switch to Sony.
2 years ago I never would have thought that.
The first one is very nice
1. Now, compare some of these with Sony's world photography2. Too much PP for my taste.3. Yeah, I know, who cares.
Robert Soderlund: I rely on lenstip myself, waiting for their review.
Perhaps we can see something that is "Nothing to carp about" and "simply sensational" along with "deserves our praise" or to have "any reservations".
Joking about the wording, but lenstip tests without sharpening.
Lenstip is certainly one of the most reliable sources (if not the most reliable) for lens reviews.
They had no problem calling the Nikon 58mm by its name: "Nikon was joking all along, trying to sell you a rough piece of trash for a lot of money (...)"
99.9% of my pictures are cr*ap -and except 2 (or 3) so are these.
shooter mclens: Egad... speechless... the 1 system clearly has potential but looks like it was sabotaged from inside the company. the new 70-300 costs twice as much as a Full Frame 70-300 VR... for $2000 there are so many better options than a V3/2-lens kit. not sure if this is Nikon's Waterloo, but... not sure why anyone would pay that much for this. that said, there are people who pay almost $3000 for a d4 and stick a $500 28mm on it to take pictures that could have been captured by a Coolpix A.
But it's still a slow 70-300. You can get the FF 70-300 for a fraction of that price.
wb2trf: The price just makes no sense. Why would anyone pay $1200 for a 1" sensor when they can get APS-C in the A6000 for $800. Would anyone lose that much sensor IQ to go from 11fps A6000 with AF (and even more PD points) to 20fps.
The only thing that makes any sense here is making a 70-300mm OIS lens for the system. That lens might be very nice for birding. But, again the price/IQ question is at best a "maybe" at $999.
$1000 for a slow 70-300 is an absolute joke.
It's a 1 inch sensor not a medium format
atamola: Finally!!!! Yes!!!! yes!!!!
28-35-50 sync 1/4000 yeessssss!
"...she's all I'll ever need..."
This is great!
"...and a tiny bag" :-)
Gigantic selling point.
28 f/235 f/250 f/2up to 1/4000 sync speedBuilt-in 3-stop ND filterPhenomenal dynamic range and IQ
All fitting in your jacket pocket and a tiny bag.
A photographer's dream.
Finally!!!! Yes!!!! yes!!!!
AbrasiveReducer: I'm not a Sigma fan (too much bad QC history) but I have to hand it to them for developing products people actually want instead of stuff nobody really asked for.
I agree that Sigma is still haunted by its past -but they seem commited to turn that arount.
I bought 3 24 f/1.8 until I got a relatively good copy.
But the 35 f1.4 (which I have) is great -and the 18-35 f1.8 seems to be great as well.
I look forward to real-life and lab test confirming my expectations for this lens. That would be the kiss good-bye for my nikon 50mm f1.4D.
atamola: If you are a beginner do yourself a favor: spend 10 minutes in Amazon selecting 5 photography books and use those $57 or $97 there instead. You will actually get something for your money.
If reading is not your thing, I suggest you look at one of the many DVDs from people that actually know something about photography AND deliver useful information. Do a little research for yourself and again use your money to get something useful for your photography.
Some people can´t be helped -no matter how much money you spend on them.

These "DP top picks" are really shameles and laughable.
The "How are these lens chosen" should read: based on what is most convenient for us.
The Samyang 35 f1.4 is an absolute optical marvel and the undisputed champion £ for £ and yet is missing from the list.
These "Top Picks" are nothing but shameless retail sale catalogs disguised as objective reviews.
dannyboy5400: I will wait for the fire sale on this just like the Nikon 1 series fire sale. $799 and I am so there.
Although it semms it may go that way there is one reason I think it won't: I doubt Nikon had grossly overestimated demand this time around.
Sure, there will be very limited demand, but surely very limited supply as well. There will be no shelves of DF cameras to clear.
