On article Fast and light: Nikkor 24mm F1.8G ED lens review (159 comments in total)
In reply to:

fPrime: The Nikkor 24mm 2.8D... lots of contrasty 3D pop, great colors, compact and light, plenty sharp, and more than fast enough unless one doesn't own a decent flash.

Only $250 on the used lens market compared to spending over $700 for either the Nikon 24 1.8G or Sigma. Just sayin'...

I used that lens for some wessings and ot was terrible. Weird flare and really soft corners.

Well the RX10 looks to me as a succesor.

vscd: I waited for a 24-70 2.8 DG HSM OS Art or 24-70 f2... but at least the 12-24 is really interesting for me.

The sigma 24-35 is barely a zoom and has an 82 mm thread and 940 grams. The Nikon 20-35 2.8 has a larger zoom range and is 561 grams., almost 400 grams less ..

The Nikon 24-70 2.8 is 905 grams and has trice the zoom range ..

Trust me, a 24-70 f/2 for full frame would be huge and very very expensive.

WastingTime: Make 3 leaf shutter lenses and you have a serious competitor for P1/Hasselblad.

Well, in that case, you can just rent a camera with a proper shutter, in the lens :D

Is it full frame ? I don't think so.

Don't mistake crop for full frame :)

High speed sync sucks, you lose a ton of light.

Wild Light: LOL. No frills for $45K inc. back, body and one lens - With this current aggressive march of technology and pricing from other brands I see Phase One lasting another 5 years at the most.

Speaking of the UK, how is the economy right now, did the Brexit move do damage to it and the standard of living ?

Yeah, that's what they said 5 years ago, I'm sure. The sensor in this back is full frame medium format, unlike the fujis, leicas and pentaxes out there.

The 24-70 f/2 would weigh 2.5 kg, I'm sure. I wouldn't be waiting for that if I were you.

Yes, yes, but how much does this 85 art weighs ? I have the original 85 sigma and it's around 750 grams, a hell of a lens. At 1.4 it focuses precisely and fast and it's sharp but it could be a little sharper.

But if the Art weighs more than the 750 grams, I might stay away from it, depending on the weight difference, as I shoot events with 4 lenses on my belt.

On article Metz mecablitz M400 flash unveiled at Photokina (45 comments in total)
In reply to:

robbinsbox: Does Metz have good qc/reputation?

They were highly regarded in the previous century. In this one they mostly made cheap, creaky alternatives, and when they tried to recreate the old magic with that powerhorse that was the CL45 or whatever, the battery lasted for a couple of shots, some users complained.

I have had Nissin and Yongnuo and honestly, I would only buy Nikon at this point.

Alphoid: Good lenses, but not quite as exiting as the previous Sigma Art.

The prices went up for what they are. Quite a bit.

The first zooms under f/2.8 were Olympus, with f/2 aperture. They are a few years old, also.

Really? How much does the 50 Art costs ? Almost twice the price of the non Art ....

Image quality looks like a compact camera from the early 2000's. Still a good thing.

Dheorl: Beautiful looking lenses, although I do find it funny that these days all it takes to qualify something as a cine lens is some gearing and a clickless aperture.

Exactly. Screw no distortion, no breathing, parfocal and/or anamorphic lenses.

The focus isn't where it's supposed to be in some shots. Pleasing images but I'm not impressed by the sensor output.
