  • Commented on article Sony Alpha 7R II Review

    Sorry if I'm repeating someone's earlier response but I haven't had a chance to read them all.

    Michael Tapes did an interesting comparison of the Sony 7RII dynamic range vs the Nikon D810, the...

  • Good one - had me going for a while. Would have been better on April 1st though.

  • Anybody know what the TIFF file size would be??

  • Imatest themselves, on their website, recognize that they do not test lenses but rather camera systems. From their website here comes the statement "You cannot measure a lens in isolation. It is a ...
  • Replied in Sony
    I had heard that Sony is working to maintain compatibility with more lens platforms - that's great.  Now if only they could deal with their lossy RAW compression.
  • Hard to believe they missed this during testing
  • I just saw Kevin Raber's preliminary review of it and he had the same observations about the connection.  I don't recall if he had similar overheating issue though.
  • I've been thinking about the same thing for a while but never made the leap. In my case I think I'll scan the negatives though and print digitally. That may change but this article in Petapixel was ...
  • Replied in Thanks
    Thanks for the information.  I'll have a look at the sites you mention. Dave
  • Thanks - interesting analogy with the music industry.  Maybe (similar to your music analogy) users have accepted software correction like they've accepted MP3's with the opinion that most people ...
  • Replied in Are they?
    Thanks for the response and that was one of my questions.  I haven't been able to find any testing to demonstrate the optical quality of the new lenses (Olympus Pro in my case) by themselves.  If ...
  • Replied in Thanks
    Thanks dougjgreen1 - that's where I was headed with this. As correction moves to the camera, future users will have no guarantee they can use their old lenses. A lot of people in today's consumer ...
  • Created discussion thread The end of legacy lenses???
    Just wondering if the current evolution of camera systems with in-camera software image manipulation is going to result in throw-away lenses?  Are the new lenses less optically correct? I just read ...
  • @techjedi - You're probably right - it's all about frame rates and processing power. My understanding is that the medium format Pentax 645Z can shoot full resolution (50Mp) at 3fps until the...

  • Sony must have their rational for compromising the RAW files on their Pro camera. While some have minimized the potential effects, the end result is that they are compromised.

    While we never can...

  • My lens goes from around 4 ft (min focus) to 10 ft in 3/4 rotation and minimum to infinity at a little past one full rotation. So if you're working in the 10 ft+ area you can get focused pretty ...
  • I could be wrong but as far as I know it still doesn't support phase-detect autofocus and 4/3 lenses.

    Maybe it's more difficult than it appears to migrate the technology from the OM-D EM1 but...

  • Replied in I saw that too
    Very cool - nice work.  I was lucky to find a used copy stand but it cost me a fortune to get it shipped back home.
  • Replied in I saw that too
    Crazy - I was really surprised that they were so hard to find.  If I find two I'll let you know :)
  • I've spent the last couple of years trying to pull together the old macro system at reasonable prices.  As you say, there's still parts out there but generally asking top dollar.  So far the VST-1 ...
