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 (1906 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 :)

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 (599 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!

Wow! Those are some high res big files!

I would love to add this lens to my kit! So many comments below commenting on how this lens is too expensive, but it seems like a complex 21 element beast. Also, given Canon's trends with recent zoom designs (see www.thedigitalpicture.com tests), this thing is destined to be ultra sharp and highly corrected. Canon, keep these jewels coming! I can't wait to see what the next round of prime lens updates will be.

On A second glance: two takes on the Leica X article (398 comments in total)

At this price you could buy a sony a600 and adapt a leica M lens, or a fancy zeiss ZM lens and be way better off for images and build quality.
