On Sony SLT-A77 II Review preview (499 comments in total)
In reply to:

Gary Dean Mercer Clark: I looked at the studio scene shots and the .jpeg and .raw images from the Sony A77 MK II look soft. Why is that? I've not seen any images shot raw out of my A77 mK II that look this soft and lousy. I find the quality of the images posted in the studio scene to be questionable. The quality should be better.

@Rishi Sanyal, I hate to keep coming back to this but there is something very wrong in this statement you made in an earlier post. "The Zeiss 50mm f/1.4 isn't the sharpest lens around, and the only lens around this focal length we could find that was sharper was the Sigma 50mm Art, but that led to lower exposure and more noise."
Both lenses are f1.4 but the Sigma lets in less light? I really think you not only need to clairifacation this statement but also qualify your statment about the ZA not being the "sharpest lense around" Please feel free to post test results and not just personal opinions.

I just find in curious that in the time the reviewer had to do this review (almost a year since the release of the camera) they couldn't find a reasonable lens to test with.

Here's a quote from a very well trusted tester, Kurt Munger, in regard to the 50mm1.4 ZA "One expects the centers of all lenses to be very sharp now days, even at F/1.4, but the side, and corner performance of this lens is stunning!"

So after looking at your test shots of the corners, it leads me to believe that either you had a bad copy of the lens, are a bad photographer or did it on purpose. What is it?

So you blame the bad shots on the lens? Stop making excuses and learn to take good photos.

Too many hands in the till, you can't make money with blurb books now because blurb sucks down all of the profits. How's amazon going to make that any better.

So they gave it a bad review. What did you expect? It doesn't mean your pictures suck.

When Canon creates a sensor with built in phase detection it's considered revolutionary. But when Sony does it, like on the A99, it's just another gimmick. All hail Canon!

No place to strap skis, board or snowshoes. People who design these outdoor packs need to go outside. There's more to being in the backcountry than carrying your camera gear. I'll pass!

In reply to:

aardvark7: For heaven's sake do samples need such comments?

It would seem that opinons of them vary from being fabulous to downright awful, yet all the while 'my' opinion of samples should not have the remotest effect on 'your' decision to buy (and vice versa).

I get the distinct impression it is more about a combination of 'fanboys' and ego: praising or castigating the camera simply because of the manufacturer, and being derogatory of the pictures because 'I'm a fabulous and knowledgeable photographer who would do so much better...' !!!

I don't know about the 'voting thumbs', I think DPR should bin the comments section!

Thanks for the smile!

tesch: I love to see people complain about too many mega pixels.....shows their ignorance.

Before you even use the camera and evaluate the shots for yourself, you pan the camera for being crappy because of the high MP, yes that is being ignorant.

Ignorant: 1. lacking in knowledge or education; unenlightened
2. lacking in awareness or knowledge (of): ignorant of the law
3. resulting from or showing lack of knowledge or awareness: an ignorant remark
