  • I would say that in some cases you may even gain using the crop lens on FF.  For example, using the Sigma 18-35/1.8 on FF, you can get some rather unique functionality - how far outside of the DX ...
  • I think this is good advice. BUT, if you, like me, are quite lazy, FX is, mostly, to prefer. You have twice as many photons to fool around with. And people who don't see the difference of FX ...
  • Yes, there are a couple of reasons - unless you plan to do a lot of macro, birds/wildlife or smaller/more lightweight gear is important, in such cases DX is mostly to prefer. Good wide angle ...
  • 135/1.8 - No G if I could decide, but I know I can't. I also realize this will probably come with VR, but I don't really need it. It may help a lot, but not with the really serious problems. Why ...
  • I think they are saying a lot between the lines here. It really reminds me of early 2007 Nikon statements - only they are way more honest now. One important reason Nikon won't talk about a roadmap...

  • Agree.  And the DX 35/1.8 can be used on full frame too, with some cropping when necessary. Adequate for trying out street photography, IMHO. Also, try to shoot at the shutter speeds needed, ...
  • In the old days, the 35 was wide enough for landscape, but I have used ca 24mm almost exclusively (zooms).  Trying out with a zoom can give you some clue. I tried the 28/1.8 also, but it wasn't ...
  • Yes, the 35/1,4 A is a pretty obvious choice. If you need/prefer wider, the new 24/1.4 A looks promising. Given the choice, I think I would buy the 24mm first. But I like the 35/1.4 A very much. ...
  • I'm not at all afraid of that kind of FL overlap: Often, I shoot mostly at 17-40mm, but occasionally I need more, say in the 90-120 range, and it is a hassle to change lens - if I have brought a ...
  • I tend to agreee with you given your needs, but personally I use a  (Tamron) 17-50/2.8, often @f/3.2-4, instead of 18-105/18-140.  And I'm thinking seriously about  the Tamron 16-300 because it ...
  • Yes, it's pretty good - the important take home message is that it is very useful @f/4. But 30 lp/mm doesn't really say too much on current hi-res sensors. Curves for 20/40/60 instead of 10/30 ...
  • Makes me think of painting (Nikon) vs drawing/etching. Like Rembrandt vs Albrecht Dürer, maybe? The "Art" designation is not a misnomer, but it's definitely not painting ;-)  I like it, though.  ...
  • I think Chuck's advice is good - if you get a good vr1 now, you will be able to sell it again with little loss if you find you want to upgrade to vr2. (Or vr3, which may not be that far off.)  ...
  • No doubt the increased capabilities will be useful for many, and a ca 24 MP APS-C crop is really something. In my own experience, the 16 MP crop of the D800 is really enough, though. For it is...

  • It's only theoretical that pixel size does not affect noise or low light capability. Even if pooling by downsampling were perfect, there are the effects of Bayer pattern. So the "pixel quality"...

  • Even at the lowest ISO it will lag behind MF - the question is how much. Not necessarily so much as to be decisive for a whole lot of applications. That will be interesting to see.

  • Of course they do! 36 MP is already in the upper end for a general purpose camera, as witnessed by all the Nikon shooters happily "downgrading" to the D750 or even the Df.

  • I prefer to believe in physics and the reality of Poisson shot noise. Try to calculate how many electrons there are in a pixel, 18% grey correctly exposed @ISO25600.

  • I guess Canon has restricted features intentionally to keep away buyers who are better served with their other present and upcoming models.

  • For some uses, I think it will compete very well with the D810, in particular when there is good control over light. But not all - and Canon has a great challenge providing glass for that sensor....
