PanoMax: Would be nice if they used a Foveon sensor

No, it doesn't. Come on ..

You're on the wrong page.

rrrremus: I assume shooting wide open you would need to manually focus every time

I don't know man, my D750 focuses when and where I want it to ..

You could put that 105 1.4 on a D300 and I bet it would be spot on. Heck, glass focused right on my D80, let alone a modern camera.

No, it does not, it's the opposit in fact, because the bayer is a single layer sensor while the Foveon has multiple layers thru which light must travel, so you lose light.

The Foven sensor is the worst sensor in a camera, I believe. I laughed thru the TCSTV review of a quattro, I think.

I'd rather shoot with a camera phone rather than a camera that has a Foveon inside.

kadardr: Another reason to buy the 105/2 DC-Nikkor...

If you think the price is bad then you should see what it will cost in Romania. I bet you any money it's going to be above 3000 US dollars.

Mate, I shoot the 85 at 1.4 a lot and the photos are tack sharp. That's why we buy DSLR's, to have them do stuff for us properly.

Yeah, and the big reason not to buy: The autofocus.

marc petzold: When would smartphone manufactors build-in at least an 1/1.7" sensor...size does matter...you can't overcome laws of physics with newer processing algorithms and faster cpus...Sony for instance decided it right back into 2012 with their very first RX100 iteration - the 1" sensor is so much better than a usual 1/1.7" which all other prosumers and highend compacts have had back at this day...and now smartphones...12.16..20 or more MP...it doesn't matter...the sensor size is still a mess, JPEGs in 1:1 100% mode look really mushy & like watercolors....they'd never compete with digicams if they wouldn't get a better, bigger sensor for better light gathering ability, low light performance and image quality after all....i am tired of all these smartphone cameras...it's been 2016 - and still no RX100 IQ into a smartphone besides the CM1 Lumix from Panasonic.

Manufactors should do it right that way - bring it on, or just fade away. The typical smartphone cam can never compete with an 1" sensor

The 808 Nokia had a 1/1.2" sensor ..

Larger sensors are already fitted to smartphones.

On article Comparison Review: Sony FE 50mm F1.4 ZA vs 55mm F1.8 ZA (227 comments in total)
In reply to:

Niala2: Maybe last time I repeat myself so grossly:
I believe a G-Master 42mm f1.4 plus a G-Master 70mm f1.2 would have been by very far more adequate (stunning, timely, compelling, usefull) then this one..
(I extensively use the gm85 and a variety of good WA and appreciate the 55.This 1.4 angers me somewhat.)

Then you have no choice. I'd have a 20-85 f/2 in a heartbeat, and I'd throw away all my primes. Maybe even a 2.8, but it would be ridiculously large, heavy and expensive. Hell, Sigma couldn't even do a 20-35.

AshMills: Equivalence police- that's 16-32mm f1.6-2.4 and 30-60mm 1.6-2.4 to you.

Yes, you can. Otherwise you would get a different exposure at, say, f/4. 1/125 and ISO100 on a FF camera compared to a m43. But you don't.

It's a matter of sensor signal amplification and that's why a smaller format gives more noise than a larger format, because the signal has to be amplified more to compensate for the light loss.

some cameras even cheat the ISO scores intentionally, like Sony and Fuji, to make their models stand out or catch up in ISO tests.

ISO is a standard configured by the manufacturer for each model, not an absolute value.

No, that's not the case, I was just debating the much misused issue of aperture equivalency.

Nope, brightness equivalency due to sensor size is down to ISO calibration, the final exposuro on an f/5.6 aperture on Medium Format is the same as the final exposure at same ISO and exposure time on a mobile phone f/5.6 lens.

Aperture can only be equivalent in terms of DOF. In terms of brightness, exposure, it's f/4-f/5.6.

Only focal can be equivalent, NOT aperture, at least not in all the aspects !

On article Special K? Pentax K-1 Review (2613 comments in total)
In reply to:

Professor999: 'Poor default JPEG settings'
Completely subjective.
Yes, it's a default which can be changed if I don't like it.
I take it out of the box, set it up the way 'I' want it-customisation-then take photos.
& that's a CON!

Mate, that even state as a pro the fact that you can customise your jpeg.

They rate as a con the fact that the jpeg is not already customised to a pleasant level, e.g. you need to do it yourself.

What is so hard to comprehend ?

In reply to:

phatbog: i'm coming from high end medium format, FF & aps-c, digital but sometimes film. My conclusion is simple, after 2 months with the K-1 and +20,000 actuations on this camera, with +20 pentax FF AF lenses, i disagree on almost anything you find bad.
AF doesn't miss. AFC is almost perfect. everything with this camera beats or is equal to Canon & Nikon high end FF. Remember Canon & Nikon have dedicated cameras & gear for sports. Pentax doesn't . What you loose with Pentax in perfect pro sports photography, you gain everywhere else. I'm sure if you would've spent more time with the K-1 you would've find it way better than your conclusions. ;)

You come from high end and medium format and you bought a Pentax ?

Where's your review page and your comprehensive review, because what DPR says is in line with other reviewers.

BS much?
