Khun_K: all these high end lenses suggest a pro model is coming, and not necessary A7 size, pro can accept a bit (just a bit) bigger that balance these heavy weight better. It's all good. The 55/1.8 is very good and will last for some more time. There are lots of choice and is good for users.

IMHO no, the macro is a must, almost, for all camera systems, and 35/1.4 is what a typical Zeiss would do. But very high price 50/1.4, and SONY's own GM sent different signal, I think a higher end model is a wild dream when A7 system is developed, and the sales success made it a "work in progress".

I told my self if I will be patient enough then perhaps I can get a good deal then today I did, a very well priced - and almost never used 2nd hand came up and I grabbed it. M60 is a nice camera that has a different attraction to take it around to take picture - even without a purpose, and that is the fun about this camera. I use a few other digital M cameras and SL, I can't say this M60 will produce better image - given the restriction - I doubt it. But I am certain I would probably have this camera around (just feel cool about it) for situations that I might not have other camera around, and it would for sure allow me taking some pictures that otherwise can't.

On article Medium-format mirrorless: Hasselblad unveils X1D (1188 comments in total)

this is certainly the best shot Hasselblad can make in current market situation, the traditional SLR-type medium format market is small and Hasselblad is not a market share leader making there is no way to fund a new product unless - such as Leica SL, minimizing engineering production tools and go automatic CNC milling and use touch screen to replace all the buttons needed (and much easier assembly) so making this type of camera is what have to be done - logically and economically, without over burdening themselves with inventory. It is actually reasonably priced around a similar resolution digital back - making it to a self-contain digital camera platform. It changes the game the Hasselblad is playing for sure, but not likely to put much pressure on everyone else except Hasselblad themselves - the H & V system.
This product open up a play field that the real game changer will be the similar offer from Japanese, shortly after.

On article CP+ 2016: Hands-on with new Sigma SD cameras and lenses (308 comments in total)

nice except it is 3 years too late

As a user of DP Merrills for many years this would be a nice solution, only that I hope it will accept other lenses but the digital engine on the Foveon chip may require special calculation that exclude such. It would be a nice camera, only arrive a bit too late.

the lens are primary designed for the modern A7 seres (or perhaps future generations and may be A8/A9 that features 5-axis in-body stabilizer) so it becomes less important to have it on the lens. Minolta once produced some of best lenses by Japanese makers, SONY just carries it, and hopefully this line of lens will not be disappointing.

a lot bigger than what I expected, it is not bad or good, just thought a size closer to M (Leica's comfort zone) would be ideal. The industrial design is in my opinion under achieved by the typical Leica tradition although it is not to be an ugly camera - which are plenty of course, it is a Leica, a slightly different looking Leica. Image quality would be no doubt great, but this is sort of standard in 2015. Well, it is a Leica, would not mind to have one. A long road to built up the new lens system.

On article Second time lucky? A closer look at Sony's new RX1R II (542 comments in total)

It looks to be a great all-around camera itself and a nice companion camera to A7R2 mounted with lens other than 35mm. I would retire the beautiful Zeiss EF 35/1.4 and just settle on 35mm with RX1R2, then shooting other focal length with A7R2

Image stabilizer is missed is probably the biggest shortfall, but this is still among the very best all-around cameras, a very worthy upgrade from the mark 1

On article Benchmark Performance: Nikon D810 review (1983 comments in total)

I do not learn Apple products produced in China to be a problem, it is just management, and Nikon is not in the same league in this case.
Frame rate 5 fps (6 fps in 1.2/DX crop, 7 fps with MB-D12)

On article Hands on with the Pentax 645Z (707 comments in total)

it is a time this product, although I am sure will be quite good, will not help Pentax, it is unfortunate that there is little room in the market left for Pentax. Nothing wrong with Pentax, it is just tough.

finally, and look for what will be available in Fotokina 6 months later, while getting this A7S to shoot along with my A7R

stick to Zeiss Apo-Distagon, this is not much different from the old 50/1.4 anyway

even Steve McCurry is already experienced and well established, he still spent much more time and intensity in photography and patience to capture the moment than almost all the photographers (pros or not). Many people can hit homerun, but not everyone is Babe Ruth.
People may just say something beyond common one's ability as being suspicious, he or she just does not have that calibre or the persistence to achinve the goal

the macro adapter seemed to be an excellent idea if it really works, saves a lot of weight in travel. H5D is welcom.

not sure what to make of this, SONY is refreshing its lie up every 3-6 months, the Hasselblad A will be aged quickly

On article Updated: our Canon EOS M hands-on preview (162 comments in total)

Market proves that Canon and Nikon did more right than wrong on their products as a result of where they are.
It is hard to conclude the cameras until trying on, in actual shoots.
I think the EOS-M can be potentially a good side camera of my EOS system.
