NEX 6 is so underrated. 1 stop advantage over any M4/3, and better DR in the shadow region.
I would be great to have E-mount. May be I need to get adaptor.
Everything will be online. Newspaper will soon be history. Doesn't really matter if it has pictures or not.
Jun2: Look at the distance scale in the picture (2, 5, infinite), that's disappointing for manual zoom focus.
retro style should have retro distance scale. A lot people use MF for video. A longer with more distance marks is important. I would buy a cheap AF lens if AF is the only thing needed.
I don't run movie production company, 4K is overkill.
mpgxsvcd: And so it begins. There will be lots of cameras that shoot 4K next year. Have you ever tried to edit 4K footage on your laptop? It doesn't work very well unless you have a very fast graphics card and tons of RAM.
It sounds like the Panasonic GH4 will have 4K video and be released early next year.
New black Mac Pro
erotavlas: 4k? why don't they skip 4k and just go directly to 6k
make 4K money, then 6K money.

tabloid: This Canon dual pixel sensor would be great in my Sony A65.They were made for each other.
why? It's no better than current contrast AF
Joe Ogiba: I guess if Sigma does not come out with an E mount version with IS I will just get the Vario-Tessar T* FE 24-70mm F4 ZA OSS for my VG900.
82mm filter, 800+ grams. Too big for e-mount.
filter thread 82 mm. This is a huge lens.
Impulses: $400 mini vs $230 Nexus 7... Tough sale, I didn't think there'd be a price hike with the Retina display but I guess it makes sense if they're keeping the old one. Selling the old model well into 2014 would be rather odd tho... It's gonna start dragging a-- with updates.
2X faster. We will see how Nexus runs under kit-kat, supposely faster
tompabes2: Looks more like a Canon's design problem if the lens protrudes beyond the point where filters are placed!
It only need about 1 mm more separation. You think there would be that much vignetting problem. If that's the case, adding expensive filter should cause vignetting problem as the filter add that extra 1mm
marike6: Perhaps the title should be "Can Slim filters damage your lens?".
Avoiding an el-cheapo deluxe generic filter on your high-grade lenses is excellent advice. But the article only finds tiny instance of budget "Slim" filter as the cause of front element damage.
Aren't wide angle lenses the only ones that even require "slim" filters?
So for most other lenses it would follow that a reasonably priced multi-coated Hoya UV (non-slim mount) filter will pretty much do exactly the same thing as a $150 Heliopan or B&W UV.
So Canon has designing problem with 24-105 too.
I actually blames this on lens manufactures. . The bottom of filter thread should have enough separation from bulging front lens element. In Canon 24-70mm case, there is no separation, relying on filter manufacture to provide the separation.
The cameras are cheap for what they are. Let's complain about lens prices. I think the lens prices will come down after initiate uptake.
zodiacfml: Sigh...Sony makes you fall for the competitively priced bodies and takes it back with lenses.With the price of the 35mm, I don't see prices of the RX1/r dropping soon.
I know. All Sony needs to do is put a E-mount on 35mm f2 lens used in RX1. People would happily buy it for $1200, instead of complaining about 35mm 2.8 too expensive.
igor_s: Let me say once more: you can not compare the accuracy of different PDAF systems until you have proved that there is no AF/BF issues with the conventional PDAF and the lens sample being tested. If they are present they should be corrected prior to testing, at least at the level offered by Sigma's dock station (the in-camera microadjustment often can not cope well enough). For other systems such service is offered under warranty. If AF/BF can not be corrected, the system is flawed and something needs replacing.
Otherwise, with a miscalibrated lens sample out-of-box on a body without microadjustment you could "prove" that conventional PDAF altogether is a piece of you know what:-). That is simply not professional.
why? AF/BF is part of PDAF system's problem. That's the weakness of the PDAF system. micro-adjustment never really solves the problem.
Better than my Nex 5N in regards to exposure in these panos.
much faster than any other phones
