Jogger: I wonder why Samyang doesnt come out with a line of converters; seems like it would be a natural fit for them. They could even make lenses in a Samyang mount with adapters for the popular mirrorless mounts. They would save a ton on production, testing, etc.
there is no such thing as "a Samyang mount".
dlkeller: B&H doesn't list VC as one of the features in the Sony version. If this is true Sony A mount users are being screwed again. Hope it isn't true as it looks like a lens I would buy--but not if VC is left of my version.
dlkeller: You really need to learn how to use your camera instead. As of now you don't even know it's capabilites. So in short, use the money you were gonna spend on this lens for a crash course in operating camera. Also stop commenting on things that you really don't have any clue about.
mick232: Is the Zeiss 135/2 the same optical formula as the Sony Zeiss 135/1.8 (which is a stellar performer as well but so far hasn't been tested by DXO)?
And this has to exactly what to do with Sigma 24-105 ???
Full test on Sigma A 24-105 http://www.lenstip.com/index.php?test=obiektywu&test_ob=389
Jogger: Its a bit weird to call this a "general-purpose zoom" esp. for FF users. I use my FF for specific tasks and use appropriate lenses for each task. Using a general purpose lens means you get less than optimal results and performance for whatever you are shooting.
For "general purpose" photography i just use my RX100/10 combo.
Jogger you need to relax man. Take a deep breath, turn of your computer, sell your gear and pay for some cognitive therapy ;)
Der Steppenwolf: Whole movie in slow motion really does look boring. Also "backdraft" means something totally else in firefighting so the title is misleading to say at least.What backdraft means http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Backdraft
I did watch it in full HD, but I just find it little over dramatised :) I do however respect your point of view.

Steve Bingham: Why is the ACR fuzzier than the JPG? It does not make sense!
It does if person doing conversion is bad at it.
Amnon G: Before the onslaught on Nikon begins...It is possible this is an oversight (i.e. testing at Nikon happens only with 1st party batteries).Claiming evil with no proof is just childish. It's unfortunate for sure, but hopefully will get resolved with another update shortly.I'm relating to reactions I've seen on different sites - I think that the step function reaction is a bit childish and assuming people don't know what they're doing (even though the person making the bold name calling doesn't have even a fraction of the data to make such claims) is irrelevant.Nikon's actions in the next few months will be the determining factor whether this was an oversight in good faith or really a silly attempt at making more money.
Amnon G: Nikon is known for one thing, they never EVER admit to misstakes.
Samuel Dilworth: The first camera I saved to buy was a Nikon, and I’ve stuck with the Nikon system since. It saddens me to see this drip, drip, drip erosion of Nikon’s status. The company is a shadow of its former self, running scared, thinking in the short term, and squeezing the brand dry. This can’t end well for customers.
Nah, customers will just sell their Nion stuff and go on to other brands. This can't end well for Nikon.
SergioSpain: I sincerely hope that none of the people complaining about this own any Apple products, because nobody is worse than Apple when it comes to locking down their system.
And this has WHAT to do with Nikon or photography ?
Der Steppenwolf: How is this relevant ? Thermos holds liquids and those are considered drinks not food right ?
Take a long look at the thermos cup in the picture at 100% size and tell me that is not tea in there ? Either tea or some VERY watery soup with nothing but coloured watter in it.
naththo: Has DxO improve dynamic range of input file like input file through ACR or Lightroom that stay zero in contrast, lighting, brightness/contrast? I was hoping if they do so for Canon photos. When I import into DxO in trial version, it clearly show it is too dark in shadow and is clipped. While Sony exhibit no problem at all to compare which is kinda strange. Or DxO attempt to use third party profile like Canon canned profile for Canon photos instead of its own DxO profile rather than canned. The canned Canon profile is no good as it clips the shadow badly.
DxO don't do magic ;) Canons DR is, well let's just say it's not good OK ?

luxor2: This lens is about the same size and weight as the Tamron 24 to 70 f2.8.The Tamron will cost several hundred more, but will have a more versatile range, longer and wider.
Used with a D610 or other compact full frame, Tamron gives a system not much heavier than the Sigma with D7100 body. Consider alternatives before getting this lens.
Right, and kit lens for D610 will also be "more versatile, longer and wider" not to mention lighter ...Ever heard of following things ? Picture quality, light sensitivity, bokeh, contrast, 3d effect, flare resistance, CA control ? Did not think so. There is much more to consider when buying a lens then reach and weight. And as much as i like the Tamron it's bokeh is nervous at best.
R N: hey, gang -- no reason to panic. This is so modest a refresh that it makes no sense to market it in the US or Europe. Now if they bring out a dual-pixel M series camera for Asia only, then you can panic.
Seriously, nothing to worry about here. Move along, move along...
And reason for all of those people not having EOS M is...becouse it's not good. If many don't buy your product but buy something else it means that YOU are making a product that is either inferior to others or that is too expensive. How hard is to understand that ? Basic principles of economy, even a child knos that nowadays. Do your self a favor, NEVER start a company, you will die of hunger in like 5 days.
PaulChapman: I have a sneaky feeling that these are Christmas Tree ornaments....but, of course, I may be completely wrong....
Get a seeing dog and white cane Paul.
Just goes to show that one does not have to have latest and gratest to produce something amazing. Great job and beatuifull images.
Der Steppenwolf: Great sensor, poor camera with it's artificial 1/4000s shutter limit and wheels from 1970s. And those who still own those "legacy lenses" should really be shopping for caskets instead of new camera.
HowaboutRAW 2 are more then enough. T3 put it really nicely there.
Great composition even though there are a lot of burned highlights in the sky. Just make sure that you process your picture little less, this one has that overprocessed HDR look over it. Still a great image though.
