About me:

!! Excited to be buy a Sony a7S II soon! I can't wait! Only 9 days more, maybe! Ack! :D haha! (Oct. 7, 2015; weds.)
Update: Oh my GAHHH! I just got the a7S II about 6 hours ago, at around 4:30 p.m., after work! Ahhhh!!! I'm SOOO excited for this low light monster! It is smaller, and kind of cramping my hands up compared to the D800, which fits my hands nicely. But I'll be making the best of it. "Sacrifices..." :D (Oct. 19, 2015; mon.)

I now am waiting for my first full-frame DSLR! It is the Nikon D800! I can't wait to play with/use it! :) (Sept. 12, 2013; thurs.)
Update: It arrived at 7:08 p.m. on Friday the 13th. :D 2013. Oh boy, two 13s. Does this bode well for me? Yes! I got a full-frame camera. Will it have left sensor focusing problems? I certainly hope not.

Looking into digital camera capture. Fuji S5Pro's dynamic range is really high up there for me. Seems like 'the look' more closely resemble film's ability to keep highlights. Hope that's the case. I just HATE that digital look. 'Crossing my fingers'. HA! ... Update: Woot! I'm getting the S5 Pro. Yippee! My first dSLR. Should be FUN! (Sept. 8, 2007; sat.) --shipment has arrived-WOOHOO!!-(Sept. 11, 2007; tues.)

huyzer: Have they provided the cost of all these parts, or has anyone calculated that? If not, what is a ballpark figure?

Hi peterwr,

Thanks. I was really apprehensive about photos uploaded there. I'm still not sure what their policy on it is, or if it was just internet scare tactics and posts that weren't based on facts. Eh, I guess I'll take the chance. Thanks for answering my question. If you care to clarify more about their ethos and business practices, I'm curious if I've missed something. Cheers.

@peterwr Definitely if I had a film-maker budget. I just had an idea on the use of this camera. :) But why not because it's made by Facebook?

Thank you, Jeff! And whoa! :) I guess I should have figured it'd be out of my price range. ;) Thanks, again.

Wow! What an awesome camera. Love the song choice.

CosminMunteanu: USD 700 is quite expensive for a no-name lens :-\
It would be interesting a "bokeh" comparison between this one and a Tair-11a for example (which goes for about USD 50-70 here).

@Stacey_K
Yes. It's a shame. Oh well.

Thanks for bringing that Tair-11a to my attention. It has 22 aperture blades! haha. Wow. But even so, the bokeh is actually still quite busy, which is a shame.

Mmm... very interesting. I think I'm gonna like. :D

Just a Photographer: A neat selfmade Ice Light set you back only 30 dollars....

People better read the following PetaPixel article to save themselves about 500 dollars if they are prepared to do a little DIY.

It's a shame that there's flickering. I would have liked to use it for video. Maybe changing the shutter speed will fix it a bit.

huyzer: Don't update that firmware from Sony! That might just disable/kill this Sigma mount. Wouldn't that be something?

Yes, possibly. But I wonder if it will be enough? Sony could be really nasty if they wanted to. In any case, it'd take time for Sigma to issue a fix, if they can even thwart it. Let's hope Sony plays nice.

Rooru S: And of course, nothing for A-mount. How long will it take for Sony to stop being cowards to their legacy customers?

So I'm guessing that would mean the a7S II will also use the Sigma Art lenses natively, without the adapter, too?

huyzer: Ya... but, no... at least for me. My goodness! That price!
EDIT: And that barrel distortion. Whoa!

Thanks. I'll keep an eye out for it. It just never stood out so badly as this. But it might have been just the user's bad choice in lens for the given indoor situation. I'm guessing a 35mm was used?

I'm interested. Hopefully the test/results are good, and pricing isn't astronomical.

huyzer: That's too bad the change in exposure is not smooth & stepless, but sudden jumps.

Ah, thank you Richard Butler. Good point.

@electrophoto
Yes, I love using the declicked lenses. I have an 85mm Rokinon T/1.5.
