And I hear Sony is going to come out with some new type of compact mirror-less camera system named NEX. :-)

Ilia Snopchenko: "Surprisingly, no third-party manufacturer currently offers anything similar".
Ahem... has the Sigma 120-400/4.5-5.6 already been discontinued? I understand it's not in the same category performance-wise, but the specs are pretty similar. :)

They've been replaced with the 50-500....

A6000user: After many years I finally decided to move up from my Canon point and shoot. I did all the online research I could find and eventually decided on the A6000 which was more than I could really afford. After a year of use this is the most disappointing camera purchase I have ever made. I predominantly take landscape photos, country, forest and seascapes. In all automatic modes the images are invariably blurry with inconsistent exposure in bright sunlight even when taking five photos of same subject without changing settings.I have tried manual focus using both view finder and the rear display...the focus always appears excellent but the photo is always blurry once you zoom in. The camera now remains mostly unused in a drawer and I use my iPhone 4 which produces better and more consistent photos. I have checked all the forums for suggestions and tried everything without success. Would welcome any suggestions before this expensive mistake remains in the drawer forever. Disappointed user.

HAhahah LOL Yeah, peep at those Iphone 4 pixels hahah what a joker!

Pal2012: Doesn't this seem to compare more to the old A6000 that I am using? (not quite the A6300), A6000 is such a bargain right now though at less than $500 with perks.

Love Canon Glass, but I have what I need with few exceptions..

I love the 10-18, the 24/1.8 is really nice with that great close up ability being a plus! the 35/1.8, 50/1.8 are bargains, the decent 20mm pancake lets you put into a pocket. the 55-210 is mediocre, prefer SEL18-200, for reach I do admit to using A mount 120-400 with PDAF via the LA2

You don't even take pictures do you? STFU thanks!

So... what you're saying is the Canon is so bad that you have to resort to personal attacks as you have nothing to defend with.

Typical butt hurt Canon user....

Really? the A6300?
Ok, The 5N had touch screen yup the 6300 dont

Magnesium alloy body? 6300 Yup! 80D Nope!
Shutter durability 6300 150K to the 80D 100K
ISO? 6300 100 - 25600(boost 51200) 80D 100-16000 (bst25600)
Burst? A6300 11 fps with full continuous AF , 80D 7 fps cough..
etc..
Hey care to compare movie recording? 4K? 80D dont have that does it? nope!
Pretty expensive heavy camera that sure seems to behind in tech...like I said more comparable to the A6000 at almost a third of the price....though I love the Canon, its not what I would take on a trip. and its certainly worthy of $1200 of my hard earned cash...or please point that out to me, I'll wait......

Pal2012: What about connection time?

The problem I have with these cards is the short time that they stay connected and I find it a real pain, was this mentioned somewhere and I missed it?

Thanks!

I have the EyeFi, the connection is started by first taking a picture and then you have to wait for your device to then see that there is a WiFi Network and then when you take a little time to recompose the connection drops and you start all over again...

In reply to:

Pierre Courtejoie: Just to make it clear, as it was not apparent from the review (unless I read it too fast), does both cards create a had-hoc Wi-Fi network? I.E. Do they work without a wi-fi router?

That wont help all of those cameras that have no connectivity.

For example there is no live or quick way to view an image you just took with a NEX7 etc

In reply to:

Imagefoundry: so many trolls...
The technical skill behind this project is considerable - just try to colorize any BW image and see where it lands you. Heck, most of you haters can't even take a decent picture in a first place based on what I see being posted in forums.

Was a matter Olyflyer, bad childhood? Everyone was so critical of you? Or is it that you picked the wrong camera to use and are so cranky it is just leaking out of you like rusty contaminated water?
My Question to you, Who are you exactly? Not exactly the photographers eye brain trust? No just someone with low self esteem perhaps trying to put others down to make himself feel good?

What ever it is , put a clamp on it!

Decent review and its good to know this doesn't suffer from the poor design of the Pentax models, bloatware etc

These are ok but from what I have seen will be quite expensive for what I would be getting.

Are there going to be any really decently fast prime lenses coming out; i.e. 12mm to18mmf/0.9 or f/1.2?

In reply to:

Ganondorf: What the hell does un-damped mean??

It means they complety dried it out from the flooding. A lot of lens got very damp from that and so we are all concerned if it is reallt dry or not.
So "un-damped" means that yes it was wet and now it is dry.

If it is a "dampened" lens then this means you probably should not buy it and you might ask why it was dampened.
Hope this helps.

In reply to:

Everdog: Again the WRONG lens to make this NEX-system very un-appealing. Soft pictures.

Slow F/2.8 Fixed focus which can be limiting and most likely very soft corners again until about F/8.

Shame on Sony

Hey its more-on troll, hey, whats that? What? Oh it sounds like, must be, OMD wanna be NEX troll! We know you don't know squat but please go ahead and do tell us again the merits of the low light cabability of the OMD vs. Nex...hows that? And why is it not prefered over the NEX under the most demanding low light situations like astrophotagraphy? And others? Why does orly market the ISO its actual ability? say what? ruff ruff ruff

IrishhAndy: So its not really a kodak, ita a JK.

And so your 43 is not really an Orly its a Sony?

Link | Posted on Jan 19, 2013 at 05:01 UTC

This is Good, Late but good.

And why not? It was after all Kodak and Olympus who came up with the 43 standard back in 2002.

The only problem I see is that most but not all of the talent that was there back when are gone due to poor managment, hopefully this will create even more competition and we all will benefit.

And you have Pentax envy? :)
