In reply to:

Light Pilgrim: Looks like a this is the camera that competes directly with 5DMKIII: very similar AF, sensor and speed.

BarnET, 5D MKIII was released 2-3 years ago....something like that:-)

On Leica T (Typ 701) First Impressions Review preview (2301 comments in total)
In reply to:

David H Dennis: I was at the Leica Store in West Palm Beach, and they had the T.

First, this is a real thing of beauty. It's gorgeous. If you appreciate pretty things, you will want one.

In an age when designer clothes can cost thousands of dollars, I'm not sure why people are so resentful about Leica's high prices. It's just like a designer handbag, but you use it every day. Why not pay a few extra bucks to have a more beautiful and sensuous experience in your photography?

I think a lot of people would love to own this, but can't afford it. That's just the nature of Leica's niche.

I will say that there is substance behind the pretty face. This is the best assembled camera I have ever seen, and I thought the software was beautifully crafted and very well thought out.

Then the Leica guy all but grabbed the camera away from me before I got to really know it. Sad, and poor salesmanship ... but if I was just a little closer to Leica's target demographic, I would have bought one on the spot.

I do not think you are 100% right. Leica is expensive, but many people can buy it...and yet they do not. I was attracted by M Monochrom, but the technology is so behind my 5D MKIII. I cannot spend 7500 USD vs 3200 USD that I spent on 5D MKIII and know that I have moved a couple of steps back. Their sensors are not on the same level as modern Canon or Nikon sensors. What I like about Leica is the size and quality of their lenses. If it was one step ahead of Canon or Nikon with sensors, Dynamic Range, ISO....I would get one. But Leica is behind where it matters the most for me.

Unlike with sigma 35 mm, weather sealing is critical....unless this lens is not intended to be used for landscapes.

In reply to:

Suave: Hard to get excited about the Canon version when new 24-105L can be had for $640. Hopefully it makes more sense for other mounts, but, a Canon user, this is not the lens I was waiting for.

Go to any online store and find canon for less than 1000, please share the link.

I have to say sigma rocks...their new products are very exciting. Now I hope they will do 14-24 that will be as good as nikon:-)

In reply to:

Light Pilgrim: this is so interesting. Now this lens is the very direct competitor of Zeiss 55 f/1.4 that costs 4000 USD. Nikon will come with the AF, which really helps for portraits...especially on AF cameras:-)

Just wondering what is the IQ comparison of these 2? I am sure people will soon do it properly.

To bgmonroe.
So let's think how Nikon is closer to Canon:-)
1. Nikon lens will not be used on a Canon mount, Zeiss will be on both
2. 55 mm is closer to 58 then it is to 50 mm
3. Both Zeiss and Nikon are f/1.4 whereas Canon is f/1.2

So how do you really think Nikon will be competing with Canon? They are not even on the same mount or system.

On Sony Alpha A7 / A7R preview (2372 comments in total)

Question to people that might have answers:-)

I am indeed looking forward to something that is smaller than my 5D MKIII with lenses to use for street or when I do not feel like carrying my backpack with me.

This Sony thing is not really small and is almost as expensive. What is the advantage of this camera vs the DSLR like D800 or 5D MKIII?

On Zeiss announces 'no compromise' Otus 55mm F1.4 article (488 comments in total)

I have Distagon 35 f/1.4 ZE......compared to the new Sigma....it adds nothing on top, a lot more heavier, twice the cost and doesn't have AF.

This lens at this price..........you gotta be kidding me!

I have been a massive applefan and alwaysloved it for aesthetics. I have to say that this time around iOS7 looks like android in beta version. Cannot scale wallpapers, iPad 4 became slower.....the whole thing looks half cooked.

In reply to:

Light Pilgrim: Who will be able to answer this question? There was an issue with LR 5 with the sharpness of exported images of a specific size. I think corrections were not taken into consideration. Is it fixed with this release?

I have my answer: "Output Sharpening and Noise Reduction were not applied to exported images that were resized to less than 1/3 of the original image size."
