  • Canon are being very cynical in releasing this camera with their old sensor technology and are acting in the way that most DSLR makers used to think: get them into the technology at a cheap price,...

  • get a camera that doesn't overheat and save money

  • Created user review thread Unbelievable...
    ...for the money this is the best buy ever. $200 buys a frighteningly sharp lens that is sharper than any other lens in my bag. It blows away the Sony Zeiss FE 35mm  2.8 in the centre edge or any ...
  • Created user review thread Worth its weight
    This is a super lens and worth its weight. Darned sharp even wide open makes this a pretty useful Astro lens and F2 seems to really be F2 given the sort of exposures I have taken which are usually ...
  • Created user review thread Underestimated
    This lens does't have an outstanding reputation for performance but in my experience on an A7R it is more than adequate in most situation albeit somewhat slow. Steady Shot works well as does ...
  • Created user review thread outstanding value for money
    Virtually identical to the 60mm and 30mm versions this one isn't quite as sharp as the others, but nevertheless is a more than useful addition to the range. Focuses fast and close which is handy, ...
  • Created user review thread Cheap and (very) cheerful
    Your $ 200 gets this very anonymous black rattle can of a lens. Yep, it makes a noise when you shake it but look past this and its black anonymity and you will find a very sharp normal lens. I ...
  • Having just sold my d700 I asked potential buyers who questioned the pixel count how many of your images are currently printed at greater than 24 x 18? I didn't get one answer and yet I regularly...

  • Yep it was everything the D3 was without the frame rate. Sensor, image pipeline etc. Just sold mine but a shed a little tear when the man took it away :-)

  • I think Canon's approach is a pragmatic one as expected: allow existing clients to retain their investment in lenses, while steadily developing lenses without the need for the enlarged flange...

  • I would nominate the Pentax ME one of the smallest, if not the smallest SLR in history with seemingly the biggest viewfinder in history. Yes its got an auto mode and operates in A priority. I own...

  • Created user review thread In a world of its own
    The good Its the sharpest lens in my bag which includes 2 Zeiss lenses. Its sharp corner to corner at max aperture and reaches max around F4.5. Simply amazing for the money. Bokeh is smooth The bad ...
  • I guess that's a reason: burst rate or at least frame rate is a shutter function so its unaffected. Burst depth, ie the rate at which the frame rate can be sustained is affected by the file size...

  • The thing is (and despite the praise heaped on cameras like the K1) what we don't know is the profit and loss accounts. Given the price point of many pentax models I bet its horrific. Hence my...

  • Great camera in principle. I am still a wee bit puzzled about the drop in resolution although I appreciate that the linear resolution is only a few %, when you are making big prints every bit...

  • Yup, Pentax is going to the dogs yet again. I am quite sad for them they they have never had an owner that could do them justice. With the innovations they have come up with, they need to steer...

  • A7R11...

  • My friend, if you are in the know, Lloyd will save Pro's a hell of a lot of money. So, yes people care what he says. Like: don't buy the Fuji 120 F4 because of its significant focus shift, now...

  • Comment from an actual owner: The GFX is a bit of a retro nightmare for me in comparison. Basically the GFX is a continuation of the D810 (in my mind, with all of the past problems, etc.) but more...

  • My Point is: does this 50MP "Medium Format" (which it isn't) command such an advantage that it justifies a switch from FF? No.
