What's the sensor aspect ratio ?
The Sony RX100 M4 is 3:2.

What about clogging ?

I'm surprised there wasn't a class action for the X900 series !

In reply to:

Anadrol: A great feature of the A7RII is the possibility to configure the minimum shutter speed for aperture mode.
The A7II sets it at 1/60.

IF SONY ENGINEERS READ ME:
One should be able to set X in (focal length /X) for minimum shutter speed !
This way when you change lenses you don't have to go in the menu to change it each time...

@Seeky I just tried it with my A7RII and a 35mm Loxia and it doesn't work.
Standard is 1/60, Slow is 1/30, Slower is 1/15...
Fast is 1/125, Faster is 1/250.
Even if it worked, 1 stops difference is a lot, 0.5 would be better !

@Lucas_ This is what I do in dark environments, but when it's bright you become suddenly overexposed, and you have to switch to aperture mode, where the speed will be adjusted automatically.

Richard Franiec: Singapore have no such problems.
100 lashes with bamboo stick for stealing P@S, 200-500 lashes for DSLR and prime lenses. I don't think that they cut hands for stealing Hassy's and Leica gear anymore. Looks like their "education" works.

Great idea, should be applied everywhere !

I found a 100% safe way to not get my A7RII stolen in Barcelona...
I took my A6000 instead.

StevenE: I have a trick that prevents most thefts: whenever I set my backpack down I step one foot through a shoulder strap. If anyone grabs the bag, the strap is hooked around my leg. Thieves in these environments are only interested in fast grab and go. They will let go as soon as they see what's happened.
If I sit at a table, I snap the waist belt or sternum strap of the backpack through an opening on an adjacent chair (back or leg) or table. Nobody notices that this is done but any thief would have to drag a chair or table through the coffee shop to make off with my bag.

Well they have knives to cut straps... sure still better to make their life hard.

qwertyasdf: Wow, first is the 2x macro lens, then a 15mm macro, then this lens, with a very interesting "Magic Shift" adapter (Interested to see how it works)
No matter how much I dislike the Chinese, this company is bringing out innovation after innovation in a field that is supposed to be creative.

I'd like to add to my previous comment, that doing business with them is great, Chinese people are the best for commerce.
They always say "yes" and try to find a solution, contrary to many whites (I am white) that don't even want to discuss.

Well, in France Chinese people are really lovely, even much better than whites ! (I am white).
But when I did visit China they were absolutely terrible ! Extremely dishonest and unpolite.
The best example is how they drive, 0 courtesy contrary to Nordic countries...

In reply to:

///M: I was expecting something spectacular when they announced a 50 /1.4 for $1500. This is just meh... specular highlights in the OOF area are cat eyes, with bad offset fringes, and little character, too analytical. Why didn't Sony shoot for f/1.2 or even f/1.0, if Leica can make a 50 /0.95 that is spectacular for their mirrorless system, why can't Sony? In the history of fast 50s, this is not even in the top 10.

The Noctilux's depth of field is too shallow at 0.95...
who needs a so bright aperture for FF with modern sensors anyway !

rsf3127: If there are scarce lens options, people whine.
If the af module in a low priced, otherwise fine lens, is outdated, people whine.
If the lens is heavy because of the premium glass and metals used, people whine.
If the lens is featherweight and has plastic parts, people whine.
If the lens is big, people whine.
If the lens is diminutive, peoplet whine.
If the lens is top notch in all respects and its price does justice to that, guess what? Yes, people whine.

Well the 50mm f1.8 is very cheap, you can't have all !

PanchoVilla: This lens is a joke. Another subpar lens slapping the silly Zeiss badge. If you want to do real photography, Micro Four-Thirds is your best option in mirrorless!

Troll your comment is a joke !

Also I hate the 4:3 image format !!!

That just should be illegal, it is fraud (or should be considered as fraud).

In reply to:

digital-freak: 1) The side pockets are ridiculously small and unusable(design over functionality).

2) The front pocket is too small for anything thicker than a filter.

3) Anything you do put in the pockets protrude inward rather than out, taking room away from the main inside compartment.

4) When the main flap is latched on the top clasp, it leaves gaping holes in the top sides of the bag due to the taper of the bag (more design over functionality)

5) Only 3 dividers come with the bag.

6) Strap adjustment is cool, but it's does not stay in place. It will slip!

7) The laptop compartment is way too tight for a PC laptop

The Thinktank Citywalker is half the price and twice the bag!

So what is a good bag, according to you please ? As you seem knowledgeable !
