Jim Salvas: Nikon introduces the 1982 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham. Undoubtedly a great model.

no joke, and even less who can deliver it

On article Sony Alpha 7 Review (1597 comments in total)

I bought one to use in addition to my DSLR because it does one thing no other camera in the world can do...gives you full access to just about any legacy glass you can get your hands on, at its native focal length, and backs it up with a good sensor.... Does it have some issues?...yes....but for what it can do, it also has no competition

On article Using third-party lenses on the Sony a7 / a7R (522 comments in total)

couple of comments:

I just set ISO, instead of using auto
focus peaking helps, but only on edges..doesn't help focus on someones eye instead of their nose for instance...I'm getting better at grabbing an edge and then pulling back slightly into the focus zone

Kiril Karaatanasov: By the way option to fire without lens was set by default on my A7. Is not this the setting everyone gets when you pickup the camera?

exact same here

no offense, but that's a lot of trouble to go through to tell us what we already knew....using old glass on digital cameras is a lot of fun...results may vary

Franka T.L.: Seems a bit too late for the big O game party. After all , real PRO who would be needing this need time to work put the gear, the workflow and all the bits and so. and this late delivery is not going to help

the D4 will have been in the field for months prior to the Olympics...giving Nikon a chance to find and correct any issues...little dangerous to give cameras to pro's on the eve of an event like this

plasnu: This is something that Nikon has to follow.

10 years ago Red was a nobody in video too, now they are a leader. Nikon could get into it if they really wanted to

Ceesprof: Gradually the high cost camera/film productions are replaced by the low and medium cost all digital productions and distributions. The new technology opens possibilities for high quality corporate and medium and low budget movies. That is what is happening!

And don't forget the multi billion dollar porn industry

Hugo808: I have a bag full of Zeiss T* lenses, the image quality is vastly superior to my Nikons. More power to Zeiss, the more lenses they make for my D700 the happier I will be.

"vastly" ? really? you have examples?

Link | Posted on Mar 16, 2012 at 23:03 UTC

not sure if it is overrated, but it is surely over-priced

yep, say goodbye to compact P&S cameras...the future has arrived

In reply to:

Guidenet: Unless the price is really good and the optics superb, I see no reason to get one other than for VR/IS. Nikon currently sells the excellent 80-200 f/2.8 AFD that focuses fast, has a professional build, is f/2.8 maximum and continuous aperture, and sells new for around $1100. I'm not so sure I'd move to f/4 just to get a 3rd party lens with VR/IS unless it was somewhat less money with at least the same IQ.

Nikon's 80-200 f/2.8 is another reason Nikon hasn't needed to be so fast releasing a 70-200 f/4 like Canon.

+1...who needs it, I have an ancient 80 - 200 which works great. f4 on a wide angle is OK, but not on an 80-200

normally would object to the heavy tone mapping, but it works well here...reminds me of the old Benny Hill joke about the one eyed cat
