This week Sony releases the A7II with 5 axis IBIS and Nikon answers with...
wait for it...
The gold edition Df
Pretty much sums up the state of things in Nikon land atm
Ironic that Nikon releases this the same day that the Japanese economy sinks once again into recession...
Maybe there is a lesson here
ISO 1600 looks very very good!
Looks like a nice little camera. It seems strange though that Canon seems to struggle when its comes to contrast detection AF. The autofocus speeds of their cameras using CDAF always seem to be a bit slower than the competition. The speed of the EOS M was atrocious.
What happens now to my pre-order for the Endangered Species Edition Lunar with shark fin grips, mastodon tusk buttons, and LCD coated in crystalized Panda tears?
The image quality does not impress.
Nice looking piece of kit though ;)
The whole 'Fro' shtick gets old pretty quick.
6 minutes is trying, 6 hours would be worse than water boarding.
D-list internet celebrities are the new thing in photography
Welcome to the 21st century Calumet ;)
Brikk claims to donate a proportion of its profits to 'populations around the world which are suffering'
Retzius: Sigma makes a 17-70 2.8-4 Macro HSM in Pentax mount for $499...
They should have just updated the 17-70 f4 with WR and HD coating

I think its kind of funny that the press release says it has "11 seals" and "allows photographers to remain confident in its abilities under demanding outdoor conditions including rain and snow."
But then they say "With smooth, quiet autofocus operation driven by a built-in DC motor, you’re sure to enjoy serene shooting."
So which is it? Am I shooting in a hurricane or enjoying serene shooting?
Its pretty big for a rather slow 16-85 zoom lens, uses 72mm filters, and weighs 488g. Its also darn pricey considering it relies on in-body SR and doesn't have a built in VR mechanism.
The Nikon equivalent (which has been out for years btw...), weighs the same, uses 67mm filters, has its own built in VR, and costs less.
Retzius: Looks pretty good!
BTW, the Pentax K-3 looks amazing.
I don't shoot Pentax... I just think it looks the most "natural". They left in some fine grained noise so as to not reduce edge detail. The Canon files looked a bit "cooked", but still really nice.
Looks pretty good!
Don't you normally have to actually sell some regular editions before you come out with special editions?
Retzius: She writes like a 14 year old.
I'm sure she will hate that.
I hate her example images, they look like puke.
Its her own words...
She uses "hate" more times than I can count and says she doesn't like the pictures the 7D makes because they "look like puke".
Let's not pretend this is an eloquent article because its 2014 and any criticism is somehow sexist or racist.
She writes poorly... If any man or woman of any color or sexuality spoke like this in a meeting or product presentation they would be out of a job.
BrightTiger, if you post up an image in a challenge and someone comments to you, "I hate your image it looks like puke", don't pretend that somehow its OK if a female writes like that but not ok if a man writes like that.
Bad writing is bad writing.
I'm a relatively young photographer, but I'm also a professional. If I referred to things I don't like as "puke" and expressed my discontent as "hate" I would quickly lose credibility in a meeting or presentation. The venue here is different, but the consequences are the same. If she can't express her feelings better than the visceral language of a teenager than perhaps she should stick to shooting pictures for the paper.
