PerL: This is the Nikon eqv of Canons 85 1.2 IMO. Not in DOF of course, but the special rendering that stands out.
Sigma 35. No question, especially when price and the fact that it actually has af (sorry but af is necessary for many fields of photography, which is a zeiss deal breaker for many).
They missed:-flash gells-electric tape-precision screwdriver set-colorchecker passport or at least a grey/wb card-Advil
Henry M. Hertz: nikon should have gone the canon way.first the lenses, then the sensor.
Correction; Nikon did have better glass than Canon until recently.
Nikon007: My advice has always been "stay away from wide Gamut unless you know what your doing". For me it's not worth the hassle to see colors no one else can. You don't see it in print, your clients don't see it, on the web they can't be seen. So what good is it? It's great for a dedicated graphics station but for general use it causes many folks a lot of head aches. So if WG is your cup of tea go for it. If your not sure do your research first, there are lot of threads on this subject going back for years and nothing has really changed.
I couldn't agree more. I just sold my U2410 and bought a U2713HM (not wide gamut). The bottoms line I that we live in an sRGB world, and working with wide gamut can get confusing at the best of times. There isn't a single OS that manages it well enough, and the sRGB emulation mode will only add to the confusion, since the OS still thinks its wide gamut.
Uh...my iPhone 4 battery couldn't make it through a single wedding, but good luck to him. Hey we should get his cell number and keep calling him on the weddings day! ;p
marike6: What did we learn? That the 24-70 Nikkor is still the best standard zoom money can buy, the D800E the highest resolving camera DSLR in existence, and that the Tamron 24-70 VC, especially on the D800, is a great value.
Let's reword that:What did we learn? That the Canon 24-70 II is the absolute best standard zoom lens that money can buy, the D800E the highest resolving DSLR, and the Tamron 24-70 VC is very close in performance to the Nikon 24-70.
I guess I like the idea of skipping 4k if 8k is inevitable...I suppose there's also little point to 8k on anything smaller than this...so...I...approve...I think...I just think this thing will be a diamond in the rough for a looooong time, with virtually zero ecosystem to support it
Fail. I hate when companies lose sight of what made them iconic in the first place, and release crap like this and slap a "Luxury" tag on it. They should be taking more than just sensor notes from Sony.
"Canon does now finally offer a radio wireless system, but at around $470, the Canon ST-E3-RT is significantly more expensive"
What? Is anyone paying $470 for the ST-E3?! It's only $319 at BH!Not to mention you literally get the receiver with any new Canon flash that you buy. I could see if someone has older bodies/flashes, the Odin would make sense. For anyone using the 5D3/1DX the Odin would seem a bit...old school.
