On Review: Ona Lima camera strap article (142 comments in total)

I had one of thoughs.
I returned it (something i rarely do). The double adjustment thing is just silly, and my copy had some QC problems with the buckle. in general I was disappointed quality of the handcraft.
I have an ONA bag which is just great.

Rumle: I don't see the obvious point in this, they just added a build in adapter, which makes them kind of huge compared to Sonys lenses. Of cause there are not many lenses for that system yet, but.
I'm guessing that there are two groups of people who represent the majority of the A7/A7r owners, one is people who just want the best mirror-less they can get. The other group are people who already own a camera system, most likely DSLR.
The first group are unlikely to buy anything without auto focus, they also want small lenses.
The other group would by the Samyang for the DSLR system they already own and use it with A7r on adapter.

ha ha, "your more than zero" comment is fun, but of cause you are right :)

Rumle: I would have loved if anyone with hands on could comment on the build quality and material choice of this lens. also AF speed is something i'd like to know more about.

Thanks a lot though.
Too bad, if they wanna create Legends. they should really start manufacture the the lens-bodies so they actually look good in 10-15 years. I mean ditch the plastics.

Just a Photographer: Where's the market for this lens?
The 50mm costs around €300 This new 58mm lens is about € 1600 and the 85mm sells for €1300,00.

Buy the 50 and the 85 together (perfect companions) and you have two excellent lenses for the same amount as you would buy the 58mm only.....

make the same argument about Leica lenses. fact is they sell pretty well (for some thing in that price range, that is).

The market is there, believe me.
If the autofocus is not as slow as the 85mm 1.4 and if the buildquality is less flimsy than the 50mm 1.4 then I'd get one right away.

EDIT: also, it doesn't matter if this lens sell well. It's also important to have lenses that cater the high end market.

Rumle: I'd love to se how it behaves on a fullframe camera, could you Show N' Tell?

@Barney I know that, but I imagine it has a range in which it can be used on a FF camera. Just like the 17-55mm nikkor can be used from 28-55mm

On Hands-on with the HTC One post (30 comments in total)

It sure looks like an awesome phone. Had I been in the marked that would be the one for me... Bad timing IMO the Galaxy III is heavy on the marked right now and the IV is getting announced soon. had they had this phone out a month or two ago they might have had a chance to hold back a lot of Galaxy III 4g buyers... kinda too late.

Photog74: This reminds me of a story from about 10 years ago when Magnum photographer Alex Majoli would use three Olympus C-5050 compact cameras to document the Iraq war. There have always been, and will likely always be, photographers who use smaller devices instead of the generally bulky SLRs preferred by the majority of their colleagues. This is nothing new, actually.

I was reminded of that story as well. The way Alex worked back then inspired me a lot :)

Rumle: How sad really. Hasselblad is ruining there rep here in my opinion. The pictured camera looks like its gonna be a A99 Hassy version. Design looks Retro vs Spacy in a horrible combination. If it doesn't offer any advantages over the A99.... Why, why WHY, would any one buy that ****.

I feel sort of offended I guess. Asking 6500 cash for a rebranded NEX-7 is really stretching it. Not even Leica could pull that off.

Hassleblad has (had) a good reputation. But really, they never been Leica class, honestly and trying to pull this stunt off is.... I dont know... get a grip folks (at hassy that is)

Please tell me if ANYONE sees a point to this?
And will any one honestly pay 5x the price for a hassy remake of an existing camera?

Dont get me wrong I have nothing against an expensive Hassleblad camera. But I would feel cheated paying for a repacking like this...
