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 (1840 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! :)

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.

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.

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.

cpkuntz: Apple has always had insufferable advertisements, but at least the company behind them makes products meeting contemporary standards of quality. They don't put Intel 150 MHz 486 processors in their iPad. Canon still puts ancient sensors in full frame cameras, leading to the laughable situation in which entry-level crop cameras from everyone else have better IQ than Canon's $3000-$7000 pro cameras.

Just compare the d5300 and the 5dIII on this website (via a7r page):

Of course quoting us dxo scores. 5DIII kills D5200 sensor in low light - your argument is invalid.

Donnie G: Nearly 1,000 comments about a corporate ad campaign from this site alone. Ha ha ha, LOL. Seems the teaser was very successful in reminding average people and businesses that Canon is involved in a lot more than just making consumer cameras and lenses. BRILLIANT!

Nikon, Olympus, Pentax, Ricoh and Panasonic cameras will be long gone before Canon turns into Kodak :p

In reply to:

Ron A 19: So much anti-Canon sentiment here! And yet, Canon offers the most complete lineup of any camera and lens maker out there and is the only company that makes a real profit in this business. If you want expensive "enthusiast" gear, there are many options that are compatible with Canon cameras. If you're a pro who makes money from photography, Canon is an excellent company. People on photo gear forums act as if images taken before 2014 are subpar in image quality. Rest assured, the new dual processor fast focusing 7DII can crush almost any other camera for sports. Nobody needs a gigapan image taken at iso 402k or a 1 kg 35mm lens.

I disagree - the 6 year old 5D mark II remains an excellent camera by today's standards, unlike other 6 year old cameras like the Sony a900 (no video, still too few good lenses) or the Panasonic G1 (12MP up to ISO 3200).

Canon is the only camera and lens maker making a serious profit these days. This is due in part to their incredible market push. This is a brilliant move - Olympus, Panasonic, Nikon and Sony camera divisions are all bleeding money, but Canon, with minimal innovation and lots of smart marketing is turning huge profit.

This is just plainly false.

I wonder how this 35 1.4 zeiss will compare to the newly announced ZM 35 1.4 from zeiss. My bet is that the added AF and IS will make this a better bet, plus it'll likely be much cheaper.

So basically mirrorless is very close and a higher MP camera too. Awesome!
