  • Well, I guess this explains my problems as well. I have a new (to me) sd Quattro with 3 lenses, none of which are really well supported (17-50, 28/1.8 macro and 10-20/4-5.6). Results have been ...
  • Others have focused on the readout speed as being a big factor which is true, but it's not the only factor complicating a handheld hi-res mode.  The additional complication is the competition ...
  • Thanks for reviving this thread - my latch is in exactly the same state, and I hadn't seen discussion on it previously. I can still use it, but am concerned about further damage. I hadn't gotten ...
  • Yes, particularly if you want to hook a PC up to it. I should point out that rtings.com specifically recommends the TCL S40x series units as the best cheapies out there, including for use as a PC ...
  • I succumbed to the 4k temptation, and picked up what has to be pretty close to the cheapest set you can get - the TCL 43S405 (~250 USD at the moment). I'm only 48 hours into the experiment, but my ...
  • well, except that they're really doing neither of your options. they're doing a modified version of 2 - partnering to build  a mostly new ecosystem around an existing mount.
  • yeah, I'm kinda disappointed that - I just ordered a 10-20/4-5.6 from ebay that I haven't even received yet - someone beat me to it.
  • That's something I'm definitely curious about - whether organic sensors technology might enable much better layered / Foveon sensors.  I have no idea whether they would help, or whether it's even ...
  • I posted a couple times speculating that Sigma might be a logical partner for Panasonic - they're really the most logical source of an existing body of high-quality full-frame lenses that isn't ...
  • If you look back in this thread a bit, I was also suggesting Sigma as the most logical source of high-grade FF lenses. I figured it would be via an adapter rather than native though - time to ...
  • Replied in Sigma
    This is true - they really only offer large-aperture fully corrected optics which are big and heavy, even by DSLR standards. How much it matters probably depends to a degree on how Panasonic ...
  • Found what looks to be a very good 10-20/4-5.6 on ebay for under $200. Probably wont' get here for our last camping/hiking outing of the season unfortunately, but I'll live with that for a while ...
  • I'll probably pick up the 56mm for M43. Since I just picked up the sd Quattro, I'll probably slim my M43 kit down to just my E-M5II, Oly 12-100, PL15 and Sigma 30 and 56.  If the 56 is as good as ...
  • Replied in Zero Lenses?
    Well, so was I - the Sigma SA lenses already exist.  The use of a new mount doesn't necessarily reflect the build out of a whole new ecosystem if you assume adapters. It seems 'obvious' that ...
  • Following up a while later to see whether anything has changed on the Fire TV landscape WRT 4k support in PhotoGuru. The 2nd gen units are 'unavailable' at this point, and it's not clear whether ...
  • Replied in Zero Lenses?
    I have no idea what Panasonic is planning, but if they were going to try to partner with someone for high-grade full-frame lenses, Sigma might be an interesting target. If I were to guess, I'd say ...
  • Getting too long to quote, but my sq Quattro arrived on Saturday with the 28/1.8 macro, and the 17-50/2.8 arrived yesterday. Got everything used through forum members at what I think seemed like ...
  • What TV do you use, and how do you feed it? I've been considering picking up a 43-49" 4k TV to use as a 'photo frame' for a while, but don't have a feel for how concerned I should be about ...
  • Interesting - I haven't been following the rumors closely, but offering this type of adapter for EF would certainly be the fastest way to give access to a large body of relatively inexpensive ...
  • This is probably best asked in the Sigma forum. Experience with sd Quattro / H is pretty rare in general. I have a non-H sd Quattro on the way so I don't have any hands-on experience at this point, ...
