On Zeiss launches Loxia full frame lenses for Sony E-mount article (268 comments in total)

I don't understand why Zeiss insist on doing MF lens. Wake up Zeiss!

Ruy Penalva: Avoid. I bought a Mark IV to my a7s, and AF does not function at all. Horrible and amateur support if we can call that of support. A guy named Alex try to deceive you as being an specialist. No way to access adapter function (green & advanced). Pricey.

There is a button in the adapter (maybe what they call wide angle button???) I have already pressed that button in the two ways they teach (see under) but my adapter only choose "advanced mode".

"Choose the other operation mode by first turning on the power of your Sony NEX camera and either attach the Metabones Smart Adapter onto the Sony NEX camera body first, and then while depressing the Wide-Open button of the Smart Adapter, attach the Canon EF mount lens onto the Smart Adapter, or attach the Canon EF mount lens onto the Metabones Smart Adapter first, and then while depressing the Wide-Open button of the Smart Adapter, attach the Smart Adapter onto the Sony NEX camera body."

Thanks

I tested in three lens: EF 24-105 f/4 IS. EF 24-70 f/2.8 II. Sigma 50mm f/1.4 Art as yet. The supposed technician support, named Alex, ( he is also from selling sector) told me that advanced mode does not support AF. It happens that I could not access how to change mode and Metabone states that by default green mode is assumed at beginning. Metabone also states that when you assemble the lens and the adapter, and turn the camera on, you are asked to choose between green or advanced mode. No message appeared to me so far. The adapter is supposedly using advance mode since there is constant control of aperture (visually seen) and image stabilization (heard). I think there is a flaw with this Mark IV adapter in Sony a7s camera. They made a firmware in August 14 but it did not fit it. Forget AF in a7s with the adapter and Canon brand lens.

PS. In my first usage AF appeared but disappeared mysteriously to never more come back again.

On What is equivalence and why should I care? article (2127 comments in total)

Butler. My question. It is told that f/8 is the optimum limit to diffraction in digital sensor. My question to you is: The shift in aperture equivalence is followed by a decrease in diffraction too? In other words. Take a Panasonic lens with an upper f/5.6 aperture. The equivalent aperture of that lens would be f/11.2. How that real aperture of f/5.6 (or 11.2 equivalent) behaves in regard to diffraction? Is diffraction related to amount or to intensity of light?

Ruy Penalva: Tamron knows Panasonic will launch sensor stabilization

The shift of Tamron toward a non stabilized zoom lens is a clue to that rumor

Probably will adopt it universally in all MFT, I mean.

In reply to:

Shadowww: For those who are curious about focal length/aperture equivalents yet are too lazy to calculate: it's 88-320mm f/7.2-10 equivalent.

I think this concept of aperture equivalence should be discussed better from an optical point of view. Although focal equivalence is obvious in magnification, we don't feel that huge lack of light in cropped sensors as compared to 35mm sensor. As we know f/8.0 is the upper limit of optimal refraction in digital sensor, every cropped sensor would give poor results. And that is not the case. May be that is true only in terms of DoF but not in the amount of light that reach the photo-sites.

The price of the lens in Side by Side comparison is wrong.

Lan: In other news, Sony also announced Europe falling off the face of the planet ;)

What about 50p?

I think it can both NTSC and PAL along with 24P. It is described in Sony hot-site.

The sensor reads out image data from every pixel, even during Full HD and 4K*2 movie output, and enables recording and output of Full HD movies at 60p (50p), 60i (50i), 30p (25p) and 24p frame rates, as well as output of 4K movies at a 30p or 24p frame rate, with both resolutions available at both full-frame and APS-C (Super 35mm equivalent) size.

Very practical. Is it a filter or a curtain? Probably Fred of Flintstones will adopt it.

On Preview:canon-eos-70d (1311 comments in total)

What do you mean by:
"Canon has made no fewer than 156 EF lens models in the 26 years since the EOS system first appeared, and it says that 103 of them fully support Dual Pixel CMOS AF, including all current lenses"

This Dual Pixel support means continuous video focus in those 103 lenses?
