HowaboutRAW, did you invent "The M 50mm 1.4 APO"?

One ton of residual spherical aberrations, reminiscent of the 35mm Summilux pre-Asph. wide open however with excessive smearing (not sharp-glow)... Similar or even better effects can be obtained with Zeiss Softar filters and to varying degrees like #1 and 2; at ALL apertures.. Also some older Russian lenses show similar "glow" at wider apertures for little money.
(Soft-effect filters are available through other brands too.. Also Photoshop has Softar filter effect feature that works fine enough...)

On Opinion: Why the Canon XC10 is a big deal article (810 comments in total)

Hardly a "big deal":

- The CMV12000 from CMOSIS could have been used.. (In all regards much better..)

- Hi-ISO characteristics not comparable to any recent FF or APS-C sensor, let alone the A7S.. With the diminutive 1" sensor, sensitivity would not please the professionals or PJs.. (Not talking about the DR yet..)

On Nikon 1 J5 offers 20.8MP BSI sensor and revamped look article (152 comments in total)

Very hard competition for the new Nikon 1: Two successful cameras in this category, Sony RX100 III and Panasonic LX100... Both have hi-speed zooms (f1.8 and f1.7); not f3.5 . Also, the new trend is to employ at least the m43 size sensor (which secured the future of the LX series..)

BobYIL: If the published MTF charts are true, especially the 90mm macro, then Zeiss have accomplished an incredible job.. (I have 35mm Art Sigma, perfectly sharp but the new Distagon has better bokeh..)

(Sony too.. the 90mm lens was desşgned by Sony..)

In reply to:

BobYIL: Shutter was described as "electronic". Is it global shutter or rolling?

@MayaTlab0: Thank you indeed. I wonder if Sony would introduce an A7S type with global shutter or any interchangeable-lens still camera with global shutter. Recording hi-speed objects with any sort of rolling shutter does not provide sharp results on individual frames (like readable license plates on hi-speed cars, for instance. ) Such type cameras are needed in various commercial fields and industrial cameras of over 12MP are too costly.

Nice development however such "trickery" reminds me the Nokia 1020: Is it really useful? Higher than 24MP associated with relatively larger sensor sizes like FF or MF contribute also to tonality and creamy-looking gradations, i.e. some desired features for general photography. I doubt m43s would exhibit the same.

An excellent PJ lens, excellent bokeh, very sharp at the center area however edges and corners suffer. Even at f8 the edges and corners (building shots) did not recover. (As the MTF curves hinted to..)

24mm lens with such smooth bokeh! Amazing...

On Canon EOS 5DS / SR First Impressions Review preview (2369 comments in total)

I do not believe that a lot of MF users would switch to the new Canon. For them a number of factors like DR, depth of color, tonality, etc. count usually more than the mere number of pixels. A great number of them are still using backs with 40MP or even less, and those who thought they could do with FF or for backup have chosen the 800 series Nikons. To find a crack in the pro-market, Canon needs to come up with one to put 36MP Nikons in shade.

The new 5D series have exactly the same pixel density as the 7DII. Does this mean that their respective DR's supposed to be not much different?

Not only Nikon and Sony users. There are situations where you can not use flash and do not want much noise (grains). (Weddings, sports for instance)There RAW underexposing and recover through post processing create some wonders..

In reply to:

BobYIL: Some posters have claimed that no noticeable difference between the sensors of Nikon/Sony or a Canon in terms of DR.. Not true.. When we try to recover a -4stop underexposed frame in Lightroom (or CaptureOne), the difference is like noon and late afternoon.

Soon Sony and Nikon will come up with their 50MP models based on the new Sony sensor. Let's hope that they maintain the DR offered with the D800 and A7 series.

On Samsung introduces NX500 with NX1's 28MP BSI sensor article (143 comments in total)

Samsung is in the "learning" process however they learn fast and they do their homework fine. I am expecting a similar success story from Samsung in the camera branch as they did with the SSDs, monitors, TV-sets, etc.
