Way to go Canon! This with a sigma art or zeiss outs would be slick

In reply to:

RichRMA: Finally something comparable to the E-M5II in HR mode. More or less.

And capable of multiple fps in high res mode. Also it's way sharper in the studio test scene.

On CP+ 2015 Sigma Interview article (197 comments in total)

Great interview. Certainly reassures us that Sigma is out there making top tier lenses within reach of the everyman. It's a boutique camera maker, but, unlike Leica or Zeiss, it's goal is affordability rather than exclusivity. This is important for enthusiast photographers. No doubt we'll soon see some stellar Sigma primes for the Sony FE mount. Probably a half-price alternative to the 35mm 1.4. I personally hope Sigma continues pursuing this direction of manufacturing incredible prime lenses. In fact, if they are truly after the enthusiast market, I'm sure many would love manual focus versions of the Art lenses (to compete with ZE and ZF Zeiss lenses, for example). I hope to continue rooting for Sigma with my wallet :)

Go Sigma!!! Looks incredible and for half the price of the similar 24mm alternatives from Canon, Nikon or Zeiss!

I'd love to see this battle: Zeiss ZM 35 1.4 vs Sony Zeiss FE 35 1.4.

In reply to:

Josh152: Wow. When the D810 and A7R successors with the new high res Sony sensor come out this is going to look even more overpriced and silly than it already does lol.

Yah, they make it up by not having any cheap lenses.

For the last couple years the Sony and Nikon fans have been ridiculing Canon for having such a low megapixel count. And now it seems they're unhappy with Canon's 50 because it's too much! Lol :)

This camera, with a Zeiss Otus mounted, is basically a FF equivalent of a medium format camera. Can't wait to see what the prints will look like! This would be insane on a gigapan.

That 35mm 1.4 is gorgeous! I wonder how it will compare with the other new zeiss, the manual focusing ZM 35mm 1.4. They appear to be totally different lenses with the MF version more compact.

On Nikon D750 Review preview (1914 comments in total)
In reply to:

Ron A 19: Seems like the D750 seems to have a sharper image at full resolution, but could this be partly because the Canons are using a lens that is 22 years older? The 85mm USM cannot outresolve the 85mm G (compare them on thedigitalpicture.com). If DPReview wants to compare these two cameras on a resolution basis, why don't they use the same lens on different bodies? A third party reference lens like the Sigma Art or Zeiss otus would be the perfect way to show limitations of a sensor rather than a cheapo circa '92 lens.

Awesome! I appreciate the reply :)

On Leica M9 users report sensor corrosion issue article (378 comments in total)
In reply to:

photogeek: Facepalm. Leica should just give up already, and re-brand itself as a third party lens manufacturer.

Agreed! They should start making some nice third party lenses like the Zeiss Otuses. Maybe even repurpose the M lenses as Sony FE lenses. We can dream! :)

On High-end full frame roundup (2014) article (603 comments in total)

A7 is a budget FF unless you have to buy a prime lens for it.

Canon 6D or Nikon D610 are really best deals for a FF with a great lens lineup.

In reply to:

Ron A 19: Looks great! Better grip and improvements to the finicky a7. Way to go! Next step: tuck that EVF into the body - there's no need for a prism hump!

Disagree: I'd like sony to make a FF A6000 style. No need for the hump!
