On Bang for the Buck: Olympus OM-D E-M10 II Review article (572 comments in total)

Ruy Penalva: Do we are in the XXI century? A 16 MP sensor sounds like a sub smart phone sensor. If it were only video dedicated may be but a mixed still and video sensor should have more pixels.

More important is photo site square area and other technologies to gather light and process it.

Yes. But remember that a7S is a full frame sensor so each mp is big enough to capture light and have low noise. The choose for 14 MP in a7S was in reason of increasing the photo site area.

Olympus, like Fuji sensor, should be limited by signal to noise ratio. So they keep their sensor at this pixel level.

Please, psamleet, don't fancy me in. This is a free discussion and all opinion are valid, mine included.There are people who are satisfied with a 10 cm pen... but we just know that this length is very small for the majority of the women. So is sensor 14 MP.

Nikon D4s is not a new release and it is mainly for photo-journalism. Here, the speed for sports and photo-journalism limits the sensor size. But remember: Canon next 1Dx will have 24 MP sensor. Regarding Sony A7S, its main reasonable application is video not still.

On Under the hood: A closer look at the Sony a7R II article (592 comments in total)
In reply to:

Ruy Penalva: Keep on Canon/Nikon realm. Most predictable. More realistic. More ergonomic. More lens available. More design. More secret to be revealed. The game is only beginning. Sony disappeared in every field it tried to be a leader, from sound to TV screen passing by cell phone. Would it be successful in photography? How long it will endure the competition before having the tongue out of the mouth?

The problem is not of admiration in itself. I think Sony is great in sensor but can fail in camera. Samsung could overcome Sony hegemony in mirrorless cameras market. Only recently Canon has devoted attention to this market segment and we could see good news from them. Canon has already sold more than 100 million lens abroad and this a good market insertion when we think in ILC. The history shows Sony use to give up when commercial margins are narrow and a big competitor appear.

Xperia is not a commercial success.

There are few exceptions indeed but in many others situations Sony lost the train of the history. When it comes so digital sensor it is also a world leader

Why do we need another camera in a smart phone?

In reply to:

Fri13: 1:1 reproduction ratio is the requirement for "Macro". But with this 15mm for 36x24mm sensor it would really require to be far more closer than 12cm from the front element, more like a 3-4cm maybe? But how if the front lens is already wider than the 36x24mm, how can you get it to be 1:1?

See the specification at the website:

Min. focusing distance
(Subject to Sensor) 12 cm (no 1:1 affirmed)

Min. working distance

(Subject to Front Element) 0.47 cm (1:1)

So, it seems clear, that 1:1 ratio only at 0.47 cm distance (where comes the light from?) from the front element, and the 12 cm minimum focusing distance refer to sensor plane. Sensor plane to camera front thread + lens length + 0.47cm = 12cm? Probably!

matthew saville: How is THIS an acceptable sample photo? It's completely out of focus! Are there any other 11mm f/4 shots that actually have useful corner sharpness sampling?

Out of focus???

In reply to:

Ruy Penalva: Forget both. Think on Canon 11-24 the Beast. But the price matter.

So do you think Canon went to 11mm wide without no need?!!! See its MTF done by Roger Cicala and change your concept. Soon Sigma will be there too. That lens quality aims at 50 MP sensor.

To Panorama f/2.8 is not important. F/4 suffices indoor in wide angle in most situations.

I think, besides the poor lens inventory, it is not a camera for serious still shooters.

I'm hoping for the impossible. Canon promised. Canon should make it possible.
