AshMills: I would love to see an AB comparison of these two lenses side by side, Hi-Res mode on an Em5Mk2 vs SonyA7RII , both wide open and stopped down to really see the difference.

Yes, but it'll get opposite effect regarding lens main purpose: landscapes&astro

On article Throwback Thursday: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-F707 (136 comments in total)

I enjoyed both 717 and DSC-R1, which I still have and use. Image quality (yes image quality) of large sensor R1 is still very good and camera design is wonderfull (includng Canon-like wheel). All old Sony cameras including 707 (famous red)/717 and R1 had something special about color rendering - which is now treated as a fault. To me current cameras are boring color wise (maybe besides Fuji and Sigma Merills). Companies now want to have most accurate colors out of camras which (sadly) is not what photography is about :(

Gesture: Where is the word "Nikon"?
To its credit, I think Nikon has done well with its, dare I say, "affordable" full frame cameras.

So what if nobody wants to rent it?

D135ima: The most important question - is the quality of image at the long end. As well as the stability and reliability from instance to instance. In cheap telephoto lenses these are the most weak points. If all is well on these questions - everything else can be forgiven, including f/6.3 and 400$

"surprisingly sharp at 300mm/F8"? Do know lens that is NOT sharp @f=8??? Then it's a toy not a lens, sorry. Even havily used 100$ Sigma DG is sharp @300m/f8

Retro1976: I don't know why there is so much hype over the Sony A series bodies and lenses. Look at these samples: The rich color, skin tones, contrast and detail - the images are lovely, superb. Sony doesn't come close to Canon in this regard, and yet time and time again people talk about the superiority of Sony sensors, yet my eyes don't see it.

Fully agree, even converted via ACR/LR, colors from Canon are easier to handle and it's easier to achieve taste we like than form Sony sensors (especialy programmed by Nikon). But A7RII is tempting not because of colors, but all other stuff Sony packed in that body.

On article Pentax K-3 II added to studio test scene comparison (177 comments in total)

Pentax? I've thought that they are out of business right now. Is anybody still buying Pentax cameras? Nice try Pentax, hope you will find few people would buy this dead factor camera.

Canon on Canon body = sharp from edge to egde and low noise. Canon lens on Sony A7R body = poor edge to edge sharpness and low of noise even @iso100.

arra: It looks like my Sony DSC-R1 replacment has arrived :)

Yes, Sony's swivel screen is very helpful, but it's small and has low resolution. I wonder why there was no DSC-R2 annoucment (same form factor (love it!), but better features) from Sony.

In reply to:

Alberto Tanikawa: I don't know if people noticed what is probably the 1's more interesting feature: focal plane phase detection AF. No translucent mirrors necessary, the phase detection in built into the imaging sensor. If Nikon put this new tech into the 1 System, imagine when they put it into the higher end D4/D400/D800/etc ? :)

With such a large DOF (tiny sensor/f5.6 lenses), who cares about AF. Set it to f=5.6, a You should have all scene infocus :P

What is difference between "Selective Focus" in X4 and "Depth of Field" I currently have in XI?
