Boss of Sony: How about another Pentax Q or something mirrorless?

I had a Q10 once. I realy liked the camera. But the lenses are dissapointingly bad and with adapted lenses you can not fire an external flash and have only electronic shutter with maximum shutter speed of 8s. But this system had some potential.

jesusrc: Andy writes: "... the lens comes ridiculously close to matching Canon's very best primes. Click for comparisons with the EF 300mm f/2.8L IS II USM and EF 400mm f/2.8L IS II USM in our lens widget."

I would like to understand how he arrived to that conclusions when he is testing combos and not lenses. The EF 300/2.8 L IS USM II test was carried out on a 5D II while the 200-400 zoom was performed on a 5D III. The results will never be truly comparable.

But they were all tested with the 7D.

acidic: Just use TS-E lenses. Faster, easier, immune to wind.

Of course I meant view camera with digital back. That would be qite expensive. Much to expensive for me.

There is absolutly no use for TS-Lenses. Just use a view camera! The movements give you more freedom than the simple TS-Lens. Too expensive? Oh!

David Lumsden: Does this camera have the microscope/focus bracket/focus stacking capabilities of the TG-4?

It has a fixed lens, therefore I doubt that.

LiveFromPhilly: Wow, that's a really good idea. I hope Sony makes something like that someday (but maybe 60mm equivalent).

Are you serious? Something similar has been done decades ago. Just with flash instead of continous light. The medical Nikkor for example https://cameraquest.com/nf200med.htm or the Yashica 100mm f/4.0 medical.

LJ - Eljot: If there were an adapter for contax/yashica lenses on K-mount I would have bought one K-1 allready. I know, there is an adapter from leitax, but I still like to use the lenses with my Contax cameras.

I have allready heard of that. But I am not conviced yet. "have to shorten the Contax/Yashica aperture lever (non-reversible…) by 3+mm" sounds not so great.

Kostasm: Amazing performance indeed. So bad though there are no equivalent to the sensor lens options at the moment. Visible CA ruins the perfection. Just image how an Otus lens would perform in pixel shift..

You can convert Leica R-lenses to K-mount with an adapter from leitax. Do it and post the results in the forum! Some people would be interested.

LJ - Eljot: Hm, focal length of the iPhone camera is 4.15mm. 18mm does't make that wider. OK, it is equivalent 18mm. But equivalent to what? 18mm on a 36mmx24mm-camera, obviously. OK. But writing 18mm on the lens? Really?

Sure, everybody knows. But I think they can advertise it with 18mm, they can write it on the package, but on the lens is too much. Yes, "18mm eq." would be exceptable.

I know it is common and why. But even on compact cameras the real focal length is written on the front of the lens. This just feels wrong. Even when it is just for a phone. It is an ca. 0.6x lens. That should be written on it. I konw it is not the end of our civilisation. Not that particular one. But in general, part of.

Akpinxit: Note to DP stuff : MagicLantern does provides fully automated Dot Tune future for Canon , which works just as described here for Nikon .

ML is booted from the memory card. It is gone when you remove the card. And it is not difficult at all.
