  • This is a pretty nice update. The stabilization alone makes it a compelling offering. I think anyone who is "upgrading" from an A7, really needs to re-evalute the notion of upgrading equipment just ...
  • I can't tell if you are being serious or asking real question? The idea was talking about symmetrical designs. Now we are talking fast complex zoom that span UW to low telephoto. A 24-70 has both ...
  • 1) We are going to assume here that the aperture can open all the way to the diameter of the lens barrel. 2) We are going to assume the absence of fun optical trickery behind the design (as with ...
  • The last shot is really good; it is the best of the bunch. The others are technically good, though they are typical of the Yosemite area so they don't have much intrinsic value (even though they ...
  • I think I know what you are getting at, maybe. It could be just common sense, or maybe you are eluding to something over my head? Most lenses are just a compromise. For instance the old 50mm f2.0 ...
  • Replied in It was okay
    Coma and CA were pretty apparent. Size was nice and compact. It did okay shooting into the sun. The Hood was a joke. A f5.6 it was pretty good. It was really about the size. The 28mm f2 ai was well ...
  • Just watched a quick youtube on it; it makes total sense now. Thanks for all the help everyone.
  • Thanks for the helpful responses. Sounds like I need to be a 'little' more gentle with the camera than the d200 (at least with the A7), but everything else sounds inline or just as helpful. My last ...
  • How come the people with the S***iest comments take the worst pics? You know, I thought my questions were pretty specific. Maybe you didn't read them. Maybe you didn't care. Maybe you just like to ...
  • I am an old Nikon D200 user (circa 2006) with some older Nikon Film gear. I am finally looking to upgrade, move systems, or just generally get some better pictures. So convince me to move; here are ...
  • The main significance here is the color portion. Our eyes cannot even detect color this low. It is akin to military saying shoot the guys wearing red vests and not blue ones in near total darkness....

  • Oh Shamael, you say we 7 billion indivisible in our opinions, and you have the audacity to question how some ask why. Bit of a hypocrite in the philosophy you spout off, huh? Maybe you are...

  • Well, I can see your passion for camera knowledge, but your comment is going a little overboard. If you make things equivalent, it is still a 1.8-2.8 aperture. Aperture isn't DOF, though one could...

  • The farce is the realm of photojournalism itself. We are made to believe these are real images at real times. But this is nothing more than a stage. It is telling your subject walk over here, when...
