This is just great!
I love to see these advancements. Hopefully this will mean affordable slow-mo capable devices in just a few years. I'm sure people will find good (or at least funny :) ) ways to leverage this technology.

Ebrahim Saadawi: I much prefer the Canon 85mm f/1.2 L images. They beat L in the 35 and 50s but not this one sorry, not by a long shot. I am a bit disappointed but maybe going that long and fast is difficult to make.

Another thing: Very fast 85mm lenses are mostly about the aesthetic not the sharpness as they almost exclusively used for people photography, so "look" is much much more important than a little sharpness. The 85mil L gives a hell of a look at 1.2 portraits. People absolutely ADORE their photos and have a dreamy creamy colourfull rich look. This is plain.

True. Sigma's 35 beats the 35L but not the mkII. But I agree on the others as the 'Art's are great.

role_of_72: Beautiful camera!
But on the bottom... is it scratched already? Is it that vulnerable (despite the coatings) or just a displayed item was (ab)used?

Yes, noticed that too.

Finally! The great Canon 85mm F1.8 has just been dethroned! -- in purple fringing. :)))
But jokes aside, both are really good lenses anyway, love the Canon in spite of its age.

role_of_72: I won't have one but it is a really nice camera!

And for those who are desperate because of the 1.65 crop factor in 4K mode: just mount a Sigma 10-20, Tokina 11-16 or Samyang 8mm on it and come back to thank me the good advice. :)

Just named the some simple and cheap (and constant aperture) options.
(You can't say that I don't like Canon glass, just because I do. :) )

But here's the real deal: the Sigma/Tokina/etc. APS-C lenses are made with non-protruding back elements (unlike EF-S ones) and cover the 1.5 crop instead of Canon's 1.6x so one can be sure that they won't hurt the mirror and will cover the wider-than-16:9 video crop of this camera is covered (I don't want to go into calculations now as I have a real life to look after :) )

But there you go, Canon lenses:
- 11-24mm F4 L
- 8-15 F4 L fisheye
- modify an EF-S 10-18 to fit EF and you have STM for your 4K video, too ;)

Option 1 and 2 requires money, for option 3 you will need a saw. :)

Now just put this sensor to the 110D/SL2 (or to any nice xxxD) and you make me happy for years again! :)

D135ima: What about AF coverage zone ???

I guess if you take a look at the mirror you can get an idea of the coverage:

BobYIL: Canon 5DS R with 17, 24, 45 and 90mm TS-E lenses still cost a fraction of this 100MP back..

Probably. But does this exact model have shift movement for panoramas w/o parallax error? (That was the reason for mentioning the tilt-shift lenses at all.)
I think none of the above 3 available lenses have this feature.

But anyway, these are different products for different purposes, so they can be compared only to a certain extent.

Sensor-wise: yes, there IS a difference (although it has its price :) )

I think BobYIL was referring to the possibility to stitch shifted some images with TS lenses... and for some controllable scenarios that can be comparable maybe we can admit.
(Btw for this purpose D750 won't work w/ the nice Canon ts-e lineup - but Sony maybe).

Obviously if you photograph something else (like anything moving) then you can start comparing RR to Ford of course, as you said.

In reply to:

(unknown member): Why so few low ISO samples and so many ISO400 and ISO800 samples shot at lightning conditions allowing to freely use a lower ISO..
The camera is looking good.

Wow, haven't noticed this feature yet on Fuji cameras. Is this something like Canon's Highlight Tone Priority (just with heavier pull of shadows for DR400 for example?)

This may be the cause why some samples seem to be exposed to the highlights? How the raw headroom feels with Fuji cameras in general btw? Thanks!

In reply to:

Rishi Sanyal: Have any of our readers spotted any samples elsewhere showing F22 sunbursts from this lens? The Canon 24-70 F2.8L II sets an impossibly high bar for sunstar rendition, which'll be important to landscape shooters considering this lens.

@Horshack: this can be subjective to a degree but for most scenarios I find the "double ray" sunstars distracting.
For that certain picture you linked it is quite good I think! However for a distant horizon sunstar it wouldn't suit that well I guess.
Here is Rishi's earlier example (I think it is (c) :) )
http://www.dpreview.com/files/p/articles/3179047006/RishiSanyal-RedTulipSunrise.jpeg
Anyway, the 14-24 remains a benchmark with or without sunstars.

@FastGlassLover: we agree on 8 point sunstars I think :)

This is one aspect I also like about Canon lenses.

Nikon's 14-24 may be a benchmark for sharpness for example but its sunstars are not that attractive (while the Canon wide angles' are).

I found it surprising but even Canon's 18-135 stm has quite nice stars in this regard (OK, not *that* nice but for the average shooters - like me - is plenty enough :) )

role_of_72: The one funny thing I see in common on most Sony FE lenses is the tube coming from the bayonet to correct the (short) flange distance to approximately DSLR levels, and then comes the actual lens :)

So you have a smaller camera body but if you carry 4 lenses with you as well then you carry that 4 additional tubes... what a great way to save space! (no :) )

No offense, it just came to my mind... sure they will be fantastic lenses.

Yepp, I guess we agree. ;)

You can't really be that naive that the obvious afterthought of fitting in a FF sensor behind a small diameter bayonet isn't going to affect lens designs.

Can be the case... but then it is barely smaller than a dslr setup again. Anyway, we know that in most cases quality glass cannot be that small. :)

Probably, but I'm not 100% sure. At least the tele lens does not have (look at the extender designs).
