nice article and kudos to Rishi for all the responses
StudentPhoto: Wow, get my morning coffee and check DPR and see Sony taking over. Does anybody know what the chances are this will make it's way down to cheaper models? I just bought an A-6000 and love it but this low light focusing and eye tracking stuff would be really helpful. As a full time student i won't be able to afford an A-7r2 for a long long time, but having features like this would make learning photography so much easier.
this is a great great shot love it
hey thanks guys. I just saw I got 1st place!! this is great. That shot has a little bit of a story and sweat behind it so Im glad you liked it!
well if you ask me... that's my most memorable moment......
abracadabenhotmailfr: I guess there is a market for it.... there has to be.... I prefer to to stick to my mark III and 50 1.2L, bear the extra weight and spend the extra $10K I save for a trip in Asia AND a trip in Europe.....:p
oh forgot that just the taxes on both leica body and lens would pay for an extra flight

Henrik NJ: A lot of people obviosly bought a camera they in reality couldn't afford. I've seen a lot of the "affected" people wanting Canon to cut $1000 off the price.
The problem also exists on some 5D2 and on my 60D, and has never been a problem. It exists on several Nikon's too if you test by shooting the inside of a lenscap at ISO 800 or above. Lokk it up on Vimeo or Youtube.
I'm still in the market for a 5D3 when it hits the retailers shelfs here in Denmark.
I posted a link showing light leak on the Nikon 24-70 but dpr removed my post... :D
Donnie G: Ok folks, who are the people with the flashlights and too much time on their hands? :)
who does astro photography with AE on? noobies?
Samuel Dilworth: Reminds me of the Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8 lens, another high-end piece of photographic equipment that the manufacturer forgot to make light-tight.
Nikon USA statement on possible AF-S Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8G ED distance panel light leak
We have received indications that when extremely bright light strikes the lens while shooting at high sensitivities, light other than that passing through the front of the lens may be reflected. This is not a problem with normal shooting and occurs very rarely under very specific conditions.
We value our customer feedback, and if a user is inconvenienced by this issue, they may request an inspection of their lens. If deemed necessary Nikon will take the appropriate steps to address the issue.
senn_b: quite a minor issue, .. far from being decisive in any respect ..
(from a no Canon user)
the 5d mark ii is well known for underexposing by 2/3 to 1 stop under low light as well.... I don't really see a problem. and it only happens when lcd is on and in very low light conditions
plasnu: For a hollywood style shallow DOF footage, D800 is better, For a documentary pan focus video footage, 5D3 is better.
THIS IS IRONIC, considering a lot of documentary photographer prefer Nikon, and Nikon wide lenses are superior / Canon's tele lenses are vastly superior.
why would one be better thant the other for DOF?
I think both Canon and Nikon released great products for this year. Most of their customers will be very satisfied. Maybe not the gear heads.... but overall they both have done something very good. can't wait NAB.....Nikon shooters should be very happy with a d800 and d4. canon shooters should be very happy with 5d3 and 1dx. Gear heads should be very happy with all the fuzz and energy spent arguing on forums....
Photomonkey: OK, I get it. DSLRs make great video today.
But did you get a load of his fully kitted camera? With that much gear added to the basic body you are still limited to the old DSLR form factor and one has spent almost as much as one would have for a "real" pro camera.Yes, I know, it's all about bokeh but shallow DOF is now available for very reasonable prices on real cameras.
well just all basics red rock rig with monitor, follow focus would cost around $3K or more. can't imagine shooting a short without that really. I think the main thing on the dslr is the FOV compared to other cameras. because of the full frame. so all in all you can get a good setup for like $7K....... but honestly most of the people I know usually just rent gear to shoot anyway.
That is just a great great shot!
that is such a great shot! I love it! nice job.
