  • The Metabones Canon adapter results in pretty slow AF but yes you will get IS.

    Conversely the Sony version will offer pretty fast AF but no IS. :P

  • Commented on Fujifilm X-T1 Review preview

    No. Sony lenses lack an aperture control so you cannot use them except wide open. So no one has designed such an adpater.

  • Commented on Pentax K-3 Review preview

    I am referring to a 'zoom' lens. A 560mm or 300mm lens are good for birds but not for wildlife. The 560mm is not a lens I would mention is the same sentence as a 100-400mm or 80-400mm lens. :P

    @robbo - Yes its true many pros are getting smaller systems for less serious work but their main work is generally always done with FF or MF.

    And if I really need small I would rather get a Fuji...

    ^^ Look at the DPreview test and see how many OOF shots they got while tracking. Tracking focus is one area where everyone other than Nikon and Canon lag behind.

    I myself am a Sony user and while...

    Well for starters, a good quality wildlife lens is missing. Not talking about a Sigma 150-500mm lens which is a below average lens but something like a 100-400mm L or a 80-400mm AF-S. Even Sony has...

    Then why go APS-C when 4/3rd is so close ? And why go 4/3rd when 1 inch is so close.

    You want the best IQ this side of medium format you need FF.

    I have shot extensively with Full Frame while...

    The K3 for all its many pluses doesn't have the best AF system. The AF system on the D7100 is about the best you can get with any APS-C DSLR today and that makes a difference.

  • Commented on Pentax K-3 Review preview

    Yes this seems like an excellent camera at a good price. Pentax has done a very good job with this camera.

    Unfortunately as a whole system Pentax isn't very complete and that's holding back...

    People have been waiting for a Pentax full frame camera for many years now. Don't know if it will ever happen. The problem is they have plenty of prime lenses for FF but hardly any zoom...

  • Highly highly doubt but in any case such lenses are for convenience like when traveling. Hardly anyone takes such a lens for a specific shoot.

  • Tokina has a 16.5-135mm lens. Nobody seems to be buying it though.

    That said I have a Sony 16-105mm that I love. Between 16-70mm or so it matches most of my primes in center sharpness and...

  • You need to shift to mirror less if you consider this particular lens heavy !!! :P

  • ^^ Well said !

    I have seen so many amazing photos taken with crappy lenses and so many crappy photos taken with amazing lenses.

  • The A7 and A7r are still photography focused cameras with video features while this is a video focused camera with still photography features. Different audiences and markets.

    Name me ONE company...

  • Yes it has focus peaking. No one has reliable sales info of cameras but apparently some DPreview users do have this sales info. :P

  • And was the A58 the same price as the A3000 ?

    Similarly look at a D5200 viewfinder and then look at a D7100 viewfinder and you will see a pretty substantial difference too.

  • Commented on Delicate Arch under the Milky Way in the Milky Way challenge

    Awesome photo ! :)

  • So if a current camera model is worse than a 5 year old camera model and you are fine with it then its no wonder Canon is making so much money in-spite of having the worst APS-C sensors in the...
