beavertown: 1000 USD?
Nikon is dying.
for sure it will if they continue like this! :/
One_Oldman_4U: The price is really not that bad compared to the FF lens like the
Nikon 80-400/4 5-5.6 VR @ over $2200.00Sigma 50-500/4.5-6.3 APO @ over $1500.00
$1000.00 is a little steep for a CX lens. $799.00 would be the perfect price if you ask me.
wtf, comparing wiht a 50-500 FULL FRAME lens? you MUST be kiding! this is simply a 70-300 covering a MUCH SMALLER IMAGE CIRCLE!!! I supose then that an hasselblad 300mm f2.8 should cost the same as a 135mm f2.8 lens for 35mm!!!
Henry M. Hertz: that´s 10 times what they will earn with the DF.... lol.
WERE do u get those numbers sandy b? or you are just spitting and trolling around?
D200_4me: Meanwhile...the magical unicorns controlling the in-body VR inside my E-M1 continues to do a better job than my former Nikkor lenses. :-)
GROW UP eric!!!And learn HOW TO READ AND SEE PHOTOS IN THE NET INSTEAD OF JUST TROLING!!!
I will even give you aome help:http://www.olympus.com.au/Products/Digital-SLR/Lenses/SuperPro.aspx
YOU WISH nikon (or canon) had auch an AMAZING Zuiko 90-250mm f2.8 Telephoto Zoom!!! (not to mention that it is indeed a 180-500 f2.8!!!SUCK IT!!!
hikerdoc: I copy material to a term paper it is plagiarism and I am expelled from university.I walk out of walmart with a DVD it is shoplifting and I go to jail.I copy someone's lyrics it is copyright infringement and I pay a penalty.I use someone elses patented process to create a product I can sell to their customers at a reduced rate having avoided the R&D costs and .....I am a victim if the other company is larger?
im not sure about that: just check what they are trying to patent with the seeds used to produce food!!!EVERYONE would have to pay that disgusting company EVERY TIME they would try to simply use the seeds they ALWAYS USED SINCE THE BEGINNING OF HUMANITY!!!
Marty4650: I hope the folks who say "Sigma should stop making lenses with Nikon mounts" realize that is precisely how Sigma makes a living. The lions share of their revenue comes from selling lenses to Canon and Nikon users.
You could probably take all the Sigma SA mount users and have a group meeting with them in a two car garage.
unfortunately i cannot afford to change system, however i must ask you Marty4650 if you EVER saw any good photo done with a foven sensor???I saw some from the very first dslr abd was COMPLETELY BLOW AWAY by TRULY AMAZING COLOURS AND FOR THE FIRST TIME IN A DIGITAL FILE REAL COLOURED DETAIL!!!!!! I promise you that you have never seen ANYTHING LIKE THAT!!!
Nukunukoo: One wonders if Nikon deliberately programmed the firmware of their newer models to break Sigma's AF performance.
OBVIOUSLY they did it!(just like canon is screwing the use of other batteries in their newest cameras! I am using my 70D in helping develop a new 360 device and they managed to make it incompatible with the electric power that works with ALL canon dslr of before!In fact canon did even worst when they first launched the eos3 and none of the old Sigma lenses would work with any slr since then! Bstrds!
Henry M. Hertz: i wait a bit and will have a FF camera with 4K video for that price... when 4k is really mainstream and usable. :)
until then im happy filming with my full HD DSLR for my (and other peoples) full HD TV.
here we go with the same stupid argument: "mine is bigger then urs! nhanhanhanha!"Mankind never evolves! They said the same when Leica created 35mm, and MOST OF THE BEST PHOTOS IN HUMAN HISTORY ARE IN 35MM. Grow up ppl!
KrisAK: Has it been determined if:
Native 1080 / 60fps video is generated via line-skipping, or via down-sampling from a full-frame readout (what I think's referred to as pixel binning)?
(I know 4K 24/25/30fps can be down sampled in post, but for 60p everything's in-camera, right? I'm also considering Sony's 4K handycam which claims to do full-frame down-sampling for 1080/60p, and was hoping the GH4 would do the same internally.)
dr Ate: Don't worry. Very soon Canon will release their long-awaited 7Dmk2 that will also include 4K recording, and they will be followed also by Nikon D400 with 4K too...
suuuure! Canon will sacrifice their more expensive cameras sells! Besides, in video and video autofocus we all know that nikon&canon lead, right? ... SIC!
RichRMA: Kowa lenses look ridiculous. Like cheap accessory wide angle attachments attached to normal lenses.
and unfortunately, NOT small at all!!! o_O
Now the only reasons left to get them will be price and or image quality!!!
UAU!!!!! Now i have even one more way to let getty make money and/or publicity from my images while i get ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!!! X)
WAIT!I was totally unfair: I can make 50% out of some 20% which gives at best some woping 10% of what getty says they make...IF THEY DON'T GIVE MY PHOTO FOR FREE FOR ANYONE IN ALL INTERNET!!! YIpiiii!!!!-_-
Zvonimir Tosic: Some photographers that were involved in the CP+ 2014 presentation suggested the new 645D will sport 3fps and ISO 256,000 (aim was 4fps and ISO 400K). Possibly video too. But I agree with posters below, the new lens selection for the 645D is not as comprehensive. But not many new lenses are needed.
as posted above, pentax actually has MORE lenses AVAILABLE NEW then hasselblad!
Hi, were can one see your work then?
bluevellet: The 300mm is bulky and kinda slow for a prime.
But that 7-14 f2.8 zoom is sweet. Finally an alternative to the slower panny 7-14.
tHERE IS ALSO A F2.0 LENS!!!
peevee1: Wow, it is even worse than SL1/100D, which was worse than more than 4 y/o T2i and easily won The Worst DSLR of 2013!
Great, the year just started but we already know the winner of The Worst DSLR of 2014!
HASSY WAS THE FIRST!!!
peevee1: "Designed with a focus on sophisticated optical performance and abundant expressive power"
But will it focus on the subject, or Nikon and Canon will break compatibility again with the next firmware?
READ MORE BEFORE WRITTING UNINFORMED BAD SENSE. PLEASE!
Have a GREAT year!!!
Way to go Sigma!!! Just COMPLETELY BLOW canikon out of the water and people's buys!!!
THANKS Sigma for constinuously IMPROVING your service to your costumers!!!
well, it certainly it's good to have an alternative! But the TWO MAIN REASONS to go mirrorless are less size&weight AND MORE OPTICAL QUALITY, obviously, all them fail miserably in those two parameters!!!
DVT80111: F4F4F4what's the excitement?
@DVT....man, learn a thing or two before writing here! merry christmas to you and get a better mod and attitude! :)
