It smells Pentax lol
KLO82: Didn't Sony just missed the opportunity to have exclusive Zeiss AF lenses for their mount? They could share their AF specifications to Zeiss and could have Af lenses for E mount. As both Nikon and Canon do not have AF Zeiss lenses for their mounts, this could be a huge advantage for Sony.
I would buy Pentax 31mm 1.8 limited with a converter instead.43mm 1.9 is also great alternative,since you have to focus manually.And just for info they are AF in Pentax cameras,yet very compact.
I guess,Nikon discovered that people are using its old 85mm 1.8D lens for indoor sports,and decided to slower its AF performance down in its new G lens!
matador88: so what is the advantage of this new slide over current leash??
happypoppeye :D I gave up purchasing one lol
Catalin Stavaru: Last time I checked, Canon DPP could not stand a chance against Adobe Lightroom. Bad noise reduction, bad colors. RAWs had much more information that what I could obtain with DPP. I would love to not depend on Lightroom but it would take a lot from Canon to achieve this.
Adobe LR is a professional software,even though it doesn't have "professional" in its name as Canon DPP does.why you don't want to be depended on LR ?
pgphoto_ca: Be carefull....it's not a f2.8-f4 with this sensor (2.7x crop)....it's f5.6-f8 or more.......the crop factor need also to be apply to the aperture :)
A real 400mm f4...is much bigger ! :)
aperture is a physical value,like focal lenght...a crop sensor at f2.8 gets as the same amount of light as a full-frame sensor.I mean;for example you are taking a scene with a crop sensor camera,lets say your "correct" exposure is f4 1/200 iso400...on a full frame sensor,you will get exact the same values...but when it is about depth of field,things are different.
It looks damn cool on paper!
Nordstjernen: I wonder if this lens is sharp enough for my web pictures ... :-D
Oh my bad...Then you don't recommend Canon 1.2 for web photos and selfies,do you?
You had better look for Otus or Canon 1.2 :P
thinkfat: This appears to be a very positive review. At least it seems to me, because "positive" is positively used in every second or so sentence.
Regarding the lens, I'm genuinely positive.
Why sorry?If it is positive,then it is positive.
hydrospanner: This entire debacle is a big missed opportunity for Nikon.
In the end, they're having to do what should have been done in the first place anyway, but now it's perceived as a negative, with them grudgingly providing customer support because they've been forced into it, and every time someone reads a story about it, it reminds them of the negativity.
Had they been proactive, and as soon as the issue was discovered, offered free maintenance/replacement/upgrading to all D600 owners, it would have been less costly for them, and great for their PR image.
HaroldC3: Is Sony trying to lose money?
Yeah too much money and they don't know where to spend (waste).LOL
rfsIII: In my opinion DPReveiw is leading readers down a dangerous dead-end path with all this "equivalent aperture range." The whole silly business started with a post on one photographer's website and has now grown into a weird cult of people who are angry all the time about f/stops and love to argue with anyone who doesn't profess unwavering faith in their precepts. And worse, it completely misses the point of the exposure triangle. To get more out of your camera you need to understand the relationship between f-stop, shutter speed, and ISO but this new religion you people have adopted throws that out and makes readers think that the surface area of the sensor is in some undefined way related. Converts go on and on about twice or four or 16 times as much light hitting a larger sensor than a smaller one as though that matters. Unless you are dealing with bellows or other real exposure-changing variables, from an exposure point of view it doesn't matter what size sensor you use.
"absolute and relative" this is the key point!
Spectro: wow, that is thin. But with a lens attached it still not that pocketable. Maybe if they had a pancake lens.
see it is that tiny you can't even see :D
Interesting timing.I would like to know Sigma's investments in China.But still no matter what,Nikon deserved that.It is/was a SCANDAL!
Marty4650: This would be the perfect time for Dpreview to create a "reboxing video" for the Nikon D600.
Next episode will be Pandora's box unboxing :P
b craw: Winogrand is widely acknowledged and appreciated as one of the greats of this type of photography - and deservedly so. Compare the weird tickish movement of camera to eye and back (the camera barely stopping at his eye) and the elegance of his compositions. It is a bit of a painful bottled phrase to say someone has a good eye, but here is a wonderful example of someone who did. Of course taking as many images as he did helped, I'm sure. But, no doubt, his processing/anticipation of what potentially would resonant visually or otherwise be compelling was special. And, notice the whole time that the gear and technical regard for exposure are ultimately subservient to some greater content. He says of photography: "it is the closest I get to not existing".
"Compare the weird tickish movement of camera to eye and back (the camera barely stopping at his eye) and the elegance of his compositions."Exactly!And I think the reason is;he was taking the photos in his mind before he was taking them actually.
Xentinus: I would prefere a review of any other camera which is not reviewed yet.
well okI meant I wud rather see a review instead of this unboxing article.Of course I know you can not make a review in few mins.The matter is not how much time it took to write this "article".Maybe you should write more unboxing articles and change the site's name as dpunboxing.comBTW Im sure it takes more than 10 mins to write "hey it took only 10 mins" under every (relatively negative) comment.
