_P: If by any chance Sigma marketing is sweeping through forums in order to gather hints for product demands then I'd suggest next Prime Art lent to be 135mm/2 or maybe even /2.8

Any supporters? :)

17-50mm f2 for crops and 24-70 f2 for FF. I'll give you my sister's first born!

kelvinjay: Price sounds good. Lens looks sharp. LOCA still seems an issue, as shown in this sample shot: http://www.cnet.com/uk/pictures/sigma-50mm-f14-photo-samples/3/

I'm still interested, just a little less enthusiastic after seeing that.

You have to understand that photo is at wide open. Perfectionist much? =)

Buy the 50mm, and then get a crop camera =P

Nukunukoo: Who really cares about the size/weight when you get REALLY good images? You guys yapping about how heavy it is makes you sound like wusses! And that's from a gal! =P Getting one (or two).

LOL. Not you, check out the other forums outside DPR... =P That's why I made this solo post... =)

Very true. They developed the smaller sensor mirrorless for the boys. Leave us girls to use the big irons! =)

Joerg V: 98% Otus @ 25% price? Shut up and take my money!

I'll say 99.5%. The only noticeable issue was that the Otus has better vignetting control wide open (which anyone can fix easy!). While the Otus has an aperture ring, the Sigma has autofocus and is lighter. Even if their prices were equal, I'll go for a Sigma win.

On Nikon 1 J4 sports new sensor, improved AF system, and Wi-Fi news story (206 comments in total)

1 inch sensor. Not even BSI. If Nikon REALLY wanted the mirrorless to take off, they should have taken a page off Sony's RX10: Full frame video capture and uncompressed video over HDMI. The movie making enthusiast market is GROWING, but alas, the execs are clueless again. The only saving faith would be this mythical D9300... I'm happy with my D600 and D7100 but that does not mean I'm happy with their direction...

skogredd: It puzzles me that, up to this very day, people believe those Apollo missions indeed went to the moon! Today, such poorly faked images and footage would seem completely ridiculous.
But the Hasselblad cameras actually did work.

Oh please. Links to prove it or just SU- and please watch my YouTube link.

@Nishi: Not that it would even change your mind. Most conspiracists are so narrow at that. But if you truly know your camera and perspectives (At least I'm very confident that I do) you'd probably need to watch this:

It puzzles me you think that way... And what makes YOU think that the Hassleblads DID work? Contradict much? ;-)

The Chinese, with their current lunar missions would definitely love to expose the USA of staging the missions, but nothing. The Russians, would love exposing the hoax to the world about those fake missions, nothing would boost them more during the Cold war, but nothing. The Indians with plans to land an unmanned lander close to the Apollo 11 site and will show pictures someday but the conspiracists will scream "props!". The LRO (Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter) have been taking Landing Site pictures since 2008 but NOOOOO... those are obvious fakes.

Need Proof? Take it from a master Cinematographer:

On Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 Review preview (423 comments in total)

At full sensor sampling with uncompressed HDMI, I wonder how video would look at higher ISOs (dim scenes) recorded on a Ninja 2? Intriguing.

On Chinese government orders Nikon to stop selling D600 news story (227 comments in total)
In reply to:

HK photographer: Nikon made anouncement to tackle the D600 problem after an US law firm started to gather D600 customers for collective action (it's in the news last month).
Chinese customer protection department didn't pay attention to D600 until some Nikon dealers blamed the D600 sensor problem to the smog, not to the camera. General manager of Nikon appeared in Chinese photo web to clarify the issue afterwards but Nikon China had done nothing to tackle the D600 issue before that -- there was much delay than their action in US. That's why the Chinese felt the discrimination. Same as when Toyota recalled their cars in US few years ago but left the Chinese buyers alone. At the end, the CEA of Toyota had to go to China to apologise.
I nearly bought a D600, so I have been following up the issue of dust. Nikon has been dead slow in admitting its own problem. Nikon, you can only blame yourself. Sadly, some people here have taken this chance to air their view against the wrong target.

But you can snap you fingers and a Sincere, Market-enhancing Apology can magically appear, just like that!

Nukunukoo: While not a Pentax user, I do agree how DPR is bordering to WTF as to why they take to spend (and waste) a lot of time on Canikon even on extremely insignificant model upgrades and ignores celebrated cameras like Pentax K3 whose combination of features are quite unique and leading in its class.

Shame really, DPR, was there a change in management as to why many feedbacks from your user base seem to be falling on deaf ears?

@revenant... As opposed to writing a multi-page full review of the D610 that came out just recently? Prioritize? What exactly is the real significant difference between the D610/D600 beyond the bug fix? Try checking FStoppers and the other camera review sites that are now gaining traction over DPR and tell me if they are doing preferencial articles...

Sorry to say this but your rational for DPR's action is sounding more like an excuse than anything else.

Very nice, small-sensor camera, but the price! Did you guys hire some new execs from Hasselblad?

This IS a Camera Review regardless of what kind of camera is out there. This should not have been a market share contest. Besides, the last poll DID show how popular that Pentax is. Thinking that popularity is insignificant against "market share" as a criteria when writing reviews would not only look stupid, it would look incompetent.

One wonders if Nikon deliberately programmed the firmware of their newer models to break Sigma's AF performance.
