  • Commented on Nikon D750 Review preview

    No but Ansel adams did use the best available large format cameras during his time.

    Honestly for most work you can't tell the difference between Canon and Nikon/Sony sensors BUT for a genre like...

  • Commented on Nikon D750 Review preview

    Sounds like a sad case of sour grapes.

    I have used 3 systems in my work and Sony and Nikon is much superior for landscape work.

    For other work however Canon is pretty good and can keep up with...

  • The widest lens AFAIK is a 25mm f2.8 which translates into 19.5mm on FF.

    Not as wide or as versatile but you do get MF quality.

  • James you really cracked me up !!!! I feel the same way but you summed it up beautifully ! Well done ! :D

  • @TadekH - At $1000 and $900 for either I would pass for using such expensive lenses on an APS-C only system.

    I would rather get the Sigma 35mm f1.4 and 85mm f1.4 and use it on a FF body if I was...

  • Hey unfortunately its not the case of just one lens. :( I shoot weddings and I currently am going to use the following FF lenses - Minolta 35mm f1.4, Minolta 50mm f1.4, Minolta 85mm f1.4 G, Sony ...
  • Hi Stern. Comparing an old film camera to todays modern digital sensors is not correct. Its like comparing a V8 1970s Jaguar to a V6 Honda today.

    Compare a modern APS-C camera to a modern FF...

  • Damn that doesn't sound good. My usage will be mostly in low light. :( I don't really mind the weight so much. An A7 II plus adapter will still be more compact that an A99 I am sure. Don't want to ...
  • Thanks guys. Good info. :) Was worried about contact issues and other things especially with heavy lenses. But if people are using stuff like 70-200mm f2.8 lenses then I shouldn't face too much of ...
  • Since Sony seems to be possibly abandoning the A mount and since I have an already sizable lens line up to not want to leave the system I am considering getting an A7 II with the LAEA4 adapter. I ...
  • What great price are you referring to ? The Sigma 35mm f1.4 ART and 85mm f1.4 lenses cost about as much as a Pentax 31mm f1.8 and 77mm f1.8 which are slower and older optics.

    This is just ONE...

  • @BarnET - Thats a very sensible statement you made and I agree with you 100%. I don't need to shoot in rough weather but there are plenty of people out there who do wish to do that so for them the...

  • Exactly ! Pentax fanbois seem to think the world of their cameras and lenses while other systems are crap !

    My friend used to think the same way and then he tried a Nikon system. Within 2 months...

  • Fakuru - Thats just 2 lenses you EXPENSIVE lenses you mentioned.

    I can get a Canon 35mm f2 & Canon 85mm f1.8 for less than the price of a 77mm f1.8 lens !

    And there is no FF body to use those FF...

  • Also medium format just a few months ago sucked at high ISOs and most don't offer any decent AF.

    Plus they really lack very fast lenses like f1.4 types.

    The K3 is a good camera but the lens...

  • Yes their limited lenses are pretty small and compact but many people prefer faster primes and that is where Pentax is lacking unless one considers 3rd party solutions.

  • Dream camera yes. But Sony really needs to get some kickass lenses too.

  • You have yet to tell us WHY they are garbage.

    I am again not disagreeing with you that a dedicated video camera will always be better for pros who can afford them but for those on a budget how is...

  • I don't disagree that specialist cameras have better handling. But the price difference is pretty high and these specialist cameras suck badly at stills while a 5d mk iii shoots impressive video...

  • Are you being sarcastic ? A very successful serial - House MD had a few episodes shot with a 5d mk iii camera.
