  • Commented on Sony SLT-A77 II Review preview

    I don't think DPR's current review staff cares whether they appear biased or not. The over abundance of negative hyperbole (even down to the use I'd the term 'translucent') alone underscores...

  • Commented on Sony SLT-A77 II Review preview

    I no longer believe Rishi is impartial with his Sony evaluations. Too much defensiveness, hyperbole and apparent refusal to address testing questions.

    Lie.

    Prove it with RAW.

  • Replied in 50mm Minolta
    Your scorpion? Looks like Leiurus quinquestriatus.
  • That's really what I was thinking, even if I was articulating it wrong :) Someone once said you could put a little semi-transparent or light-dampening tape on the sensor... That might help?
  • Replied in I run it fine.
    Runs great on Win7 64 on my PC.
  • I see great potential value too, but overall there are fundamental problems with the rather severe conclusions reached when exposure and IQ-affecting settings were possibly mishandled. Criticism is ...
  • Replied in Context?
    Well, thanks - I'm really just wanting to address the colorful language and apparent contradictions. Have yet to really get a solid answer about SS being left on, exposure variance questions and ...
  • I agree. I've owned a couple of Nikon DSLRs and they were even more heavy handed with earlier APS-C models. Yes, I think there needs to be unaltered meter info posted and exactly what exposure ...
  • So does the somewhat edgy and evasive tone we're seeing after the fact. That also goes for Nasim's unfettered lopsided trashing he doled out on this website and subsequent heated defensiveness, too. ...
  • Pretty much what many of us are wondering about... No offense to DPR or Rishi, but it just doesn't add up - their own results alone contradict the NX1>D5500>A7II comments (even with variable ...
  • That's about what I suspected, too. The Nikon RAW looked more exposed. This is strangely similar to the Fuji X-T1 with Nasim's trashing of the A7II on his website, too. The APS-C cameras got more ...
  • Replied in Context?
    Yes, this is the context I believe some are referring to (in addition to DxO) that contradict the statement: The a7 II, on the other hand, shows ISO performance similar to, or perhaps slightly ...
  • It might help if this context was provided in the article, vis-a-vis lighting mode, blanket comparisons to the D810, D750, NX1, D5300, etc. It could clear up a few things, anyway.
  • Personally, I think IBIS has something to do with the base ISO DR drop of the A7II, if indirectly. It seems a logical assumption since mechanically that's the notable difference between it and the ...
  • Not just that, but there were serious concerns raised in this thread and the last locked one about what constitutes their 'adjusted exposure' and how that compares between each camera for each ...
  • Olympus 50/3.5 with 25 ext. tube. True 1:1, razor sharp across the frame. Look for a cheapie - mine was about $55 for both and turns out stuff like this on FF. With APS-C you should get a bit ...
  • I don't think Sony CS for repairs is any different than other companies, but YMMV. Personally, I've found Nikon to be at least equally bad, and I could tell you a horror story about a Mitsubishi TV ...
  • Replied in RAW NR
    As I said, I've seen DR scores cheated via undetectable (via DxO metrics) NR. You'll notice the A7II and A7 both produce superior tonality, SnR and color response along with Low Light ISO scores. ...
