On article 2016 Roundup: $1200-2000 ILCs part 1 - Crop-Sensor (386 comments in total)

When you really have no intelligent negative points to raise you end up saying things like:

"Controls can be overwhelming" (OM-D E-M1 Mark II)
"User experience can be overwhelming" (PEN-F)
"Crop factor limits lens choices when capturing 4K video" (D500)

The last one is remarkable: they are reviewing cropped sensor cameras (!) and Nikon has a selection of lenses that only canon can rival (!!).

Jeez...

Superb camera. Excellent image quality. Responsive. Very simple to use. 1/500 sync speed.

Coupled with the Nikon 35mm f/1.8G DX produces images nothing short of spectacular.

Look at pictures 4 and 5.

Those are a great example of why the photographer matters -and the camera not so much.

X-trans is the one thing that kept me from upgrading from the X100 to the X100T.

If the next iteration of the X100 series uses a traditional sensor and adds all the film simulations so far, I will have to enter negotiations with my wife (again).

Note: for a lot of people X-trans tops bayer. I understand that. Just not for me.

In reply to:

DoubleDash: Kodak and Polaroid. Very true. IPhone one #1, ridonculous.

The fact that a computer is not on #1 is just shamefull.

It's hard to argue that photography -embodied in some particular form- should be on the list. We can discuss if it should be those cameras or some other. But the absurdity of Time's list borders outright stupidity.

Any moment now Leica will launch a M-ND (Typ 263) without a sensor.

Only for the purist.

I've just asked a representative (chat, Nikon USA) what EVF would work with the DL24-85

This is the answer "We do not have that information as of yet. Check back periodically"

thanks

Will it work with the viewfinder of the V3?

Please, make it for Nikon -that way I wouldn't have to lose all that money selling Nikon lenses

Thank you, Sigma.

Thank you.

This image tells a story with very strong emotion. Impressive.

PS: To all those whining about resolution, linear resolution, sharpness, corner sharpness, blah, blah, blah. this photo screams "f**k all that s***t!"

This gallery shows how an excellent camera and superb lens are useless without a photographer.

I don't see a "retro-fad" or hipster design.

I see a well-thought lay-out with attention to aesthetics. Same with Fuji -specially the X100/S/T and X-T10

In particular for this camera, specs are quite good. Coupled with the excellent lenses, the system is excellent.

The film simulations are excellent -not so much for the way they resemble the original film types but for the balanced and distinctive color and character.

I particularly like the rendition of 19 and 23.

Nice.

Looks like a scene from a science fiction movie.

the number one feature in the A7 II for 90% of potential buyers/switchers/upgraders is the IBIS claiming 4.5 stops... and yet, the geniuses with the camera did not even try to go below the 1/focal length rule

yes, I'm quite sure it's informative to me. Thanks again.

"There were some of those 200mm shots taken at 1/20, 1/30, 1/50s - they were blurry. Did you want us to post those?"

This is informative for me. Thanks.

I stand corrected... I should have said "in all but one... the geniuses... forgot to test the most salient feature of the camera"

That shot should have been taken at 1/25 and f/11 or so to be informative.

Same applies to many other shots here.
