It tells more than a snowy tree: Solitude, immense vastness, freezing cold in spite of warm colors, stillness.. Congratulations for expressing different meanings but in simplicity.
Something wrong with the A7R RAW files? How come the file sizes happened to be half of the D800 and not much different than the 5DIII (for instance ISO6400)?
Loot at the colors RAW @ISO 6400.. The best two are the A7R and 5DMarkIII. The new 36MP sensor seems clearly as an improvement over the one on the D800/E series.
Shame on Nikon, shame on Canon too, for insisting to ignore of what we really want and pushing on what they like us to buy.
yabokkie: I would think Nikon as a superstar started up 6 years ago with D3, D300, and several great lenses, whatever their tradition before that are mostly rubbish now.
there are still something in the rubbish league that are still shining today, from 1997 70-180 Zoom Micro to 2005 300/2.8 for example, but they don't change the whole picture.
Thanks Zeus and Montezuma that we enjoy the insightful commentary of Prof. yabokkie today too.. He shed a light on all dark corners of the Nikon history.
90% of this criticism would not happen if it had a price tag of the D610...
Nikon set a model with the pricing of D800 and D600; now with the Df it is only opportunism..
This is sign of lack of innovation, desperation of not being able to turn out new products, not being able to cope up with the trend but seeking exclusivity through retro design and high price. Niche products should not be for a mass-production company like Nikon..
skinnymakespretty: why is the quality looks so similar to my iphone? =(
Your ophthalmologist can answer it..
I wonder how many of us can use the digital cameras in manual mode.. how many of us can use a conversion software with full features.
To be born as blonde Gypsy does not fall upon the lots of many a Gypsy. (These belong to the luckier category..)
Victor Hasselblad must be spinning in his grave... :( (No matter if it's true or not; even for becoming the butt of such jokes/humiliations..)
yabokkie: so Sony may be good at sensors but obviously not lenses, and Canon are good at lenses but not sensors, then performances of Canon lenses on Sony cameras become important, AF, IS, ...
So spoke Prof. yabokkie..
Photog74: Anyone know if you can use lenses with M42 screw-mounts - or lenses with Pentax K bayonet mounts - on these things (using an adapter, of course)?
The register distance is too short to accept even RF lenses, so M42 (or M39) screw mount, K-mount would be no problem. The same as on the Nex-series, just get the adapters from the *bay.
Such oddities make me thank heavens that I can't afford them...
Frank_BR: "Lens distortion has been reduced to an absolute minimum using only optical rather than digital correction, thereby delivering the highest possible picture quality."-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hmmm…. Compare the statement above with what Hasselblad says in a technical article in its site:
"Images shot with an HC or HCD lens are automatically corrected for distortion, lateral chromatic aberration, and vignetting when processed in our Phocus™ software."
Everybody knows that the Hasselblad lenses are made today by Fujifilm, and that Hasselblad is all about picture quality. So, when Fujifilm draws attention to the "advantages" of optical correction of distortion, Fujifilm is being contradictory, to say the least.
The true is: Optical correction of distortion was important in the film era, but has no real advantage in the digital age.
"Lens distortion has been reduced to an absolute minimum using only optical rather than digital correction, thereby delivering the highest possible picture quality. " by Fujifilm and then DPR..
Amazing sharpness down to the corners in the JPEG samples. Optical distortion correction is a big PLUS these days; no sacrifice on the resolving power.
Looking forward to seeing how this 16-70 on the Nex-6 would stand against the18-46 on the Leica Vario-X. That would really be interesting....
If you use $25.000 camera to take blurry pictures then it's called art.
Earthrise: Being doing blurred images for years, e.g. Streetspirits on http://www.alanhumphris.com/ But do I get a dpreview mention? :-)
Remarkable pictures Earthrise, enjoyed them far more than the ones here. BTW, the best "blurry" pictures I have seen were by Ernst Haas. Regards.
Go to Photozone site and see how much the Summicron 35/2 Asph. is better than the lowly Sigma 35/1.4.. ;-)
