I found the manual focus Samyang 14mm unusable as it did not hold the aperture open so you could see what you were doing when stopped down (as per other lenses). ie it was not an auto diaphragm lens. Is this?

Well 18-50 is an interesting range for a start. I think that is a Full Frame equivalent so quite wide indeed. The 24-85 seems more appealing as does the much larger 24-500 (but there must be optical compromises with that).

NeilBart: The Canon 80D looks a good package for both imaging and video. Check out the banding with the Nikon D7100 on these settings! Why didn't Nikon fix that with a firmware update?

There is this info. Sensor manufacturers:
Sony IMX-193-AQK D5300, D3300, D5500, D7200
Toshiba HEZ1 TOS-5105 D5200, D7100
Whatever it is the D7200 has a better sensor! : )

Mark K: Was surprised and thrilled unti I compare images with those from A6000 and D7200

D7200 still far ahead but good to see an improvement.

Probably why they switched from the Toshiba sensor back to Sony for the D7200

maxnimo: Why aren't they using SD cards? SD format seems to have the fastest and largest capacity memory cards at best prices, including rugged pro versions. What's the point of still using other formats like CF?

Much prefer the larger, more robust, more reliable and easier to handle Cf cards.

FantasticMrFox: This camera would be a nightmare to handle for anyone whose right eye doesn't work properly (like me). Put your left eye to the viewfinder and you won't be able to reach any of the controls on the right side of the body. You'd hardly be able to hold it comfortably and press the shutter.

How can a company which continue to pump out some of the best lenses on the planet take one of the best sensors there is and put it into an abomination like this?! It almost seems like they are desperately trying not to sell cameras.

Can they not get it right?!

Dougbm_2: How is this ultra wide?

Not really. Just wide. Compare with 10-20mm lens = 15mm wide or sigma 8-16mm = 12mm wide

marike6: Tokina builds what could likely be another of their legendary, pin sharp UWA zooms but with a faster max aperture and people complain. Pointless they say. Another reason I stopped caring about this site long ago.

Well it's not UWA just wide (FF equiv = 21-30mm)
