Juck: As someone pointed out on thedigitalpicture site,,, the exif on provided samples pics prove the samples have been extensively, almost comically, photoshopped.
"that's are available" ... awesome grammar me, bestest job.
So just download the RAWs that's are available ...
(unknown member): are you crazy to post pictures of people smoking ?
" They must not destroy their health so that they can stay alive and keep paying taxes"
It costs hundreds of thousands of dollars to treat lung cancer. It's also a horrible, disgusting death. Intense pain, sorrow for the family, and wasted energy that could be used to treat patients that didn't get there through their own negligence and selfishness. But hey.
km25: The Nikon 105mm f2.5, that was a very sharp lens. This lens looks to be well make, at least in performance. I had a Leica R8 and there 100mm 2.8 micro. I had a picture very close to one you have here. I feel as if the Leica lens was sharper and had better out of focus the this lens, but not a great deal. seems like a nice lens. But so may companies are producing good lens now a days
And the Nikon 105mm DC (Defocus Control). Different lens than the Nikon 105/2.5 discussed here though.
sporanox: Iso 1600 appalling photos. Sony will not have my money.
Took the ISO1600 RAW into Capture One. It's beautiful. What's your issue exactly?
Mariusz Potocki: Great news! Sony here I come with my Canon lenses!Thank you Sigma!
Sigma and Canon mount *Sigma* lenses, and only 15 of those at this stage seem to be fully supported. It just depends what fully means.
I'm not sure that it supports Canon lenses. Does it, Rishi?
Gesture: Deconstructs? Tear-down? Disassembly?Not as titillating I guess.
Disassemble? DISASSEMBLE DEAD!
M1963: Why would I want a camera on my credit card?
BigOne: Leica... Sony... Chinese company... downward spiral redefined.
Given the dislike of all things Chinese, maybe you live in Taiwan? Or perhaps that's too obvious ... hmm. Eh, makes no difference.
I didn't say (or think that) you were an American. You do speak like a stereotypically bad one though.
"Could someone please explain where it all went so horribly wrong?"
Your comprehension skills.
Wow, someone who still thinks that Made In USA means highest quality. Now that is a throwback.
Most things that claim to be made in another country nowadays have some components made in China. Because they are good at it. There are some who don't, but the vast majority do.
BigOne, no compensating for something else here.
They had to do something. Casio kicked everyone's butt in this area.
Looking at the manual lenses coming out the Laowa 105mm STF from Venus looks far more interesting than this one. There are way too many other 50/1.4-1.5 choices out there for this to be compelling at this price.
BeaverTerror: I remember five years ago when some of the earliest mirrorless M43 cameras were coming out with touchscreens, and the legions of sheep on this site scrambling to point out that they'd never buy a camera with a touchscreen, that touchscreens were for smartphone plebs, and that physical controls were the only way to go.
And now, it's the other way around. Just goes to show that most people have absolutely no idea what they want or need.
You keep using that word. I do not think that word means what you think it means.
You do realise you are one of the sheep, yes?
Joseph Mama: Is it just me or do these new advantages seem really minor?
I mean, how often are you spamming shots and have a desperate need to be able to see whats going on withiin that 2 seconds before the buffer fills up?
Secondly, I guess my 179 Autofocus points was somehow insufficient on my A6000? Having 425 is gonna have a huge difference?
In the meantime, NO stabilization which seemed like a shoo-in feature considering the A7 mark 2. Also, considering many of these lenses dont have stabilization already.
I guess the good news is that I won't be tempted to "upgrade" this year...
"fallaciously misapply the word"
Enough that it no longer holds any meaning in and of itself - IN RELATION TO NAMING OF CAMERAS, LENSES AND OTHER ELECTRONICS - not in relation to it's original meaning.
Seriously, TN already answered all this in his first answer. You can't tell anything from a name.
"In this case, the word "mark" does mean "significant"."
No, it doesn't. In this case, or in your examples. It means line. Whether that line is a significant one, or not, is not included in the word.
I already had that.
