davids8560: It's a gold award winner. The marshmallows of yesteryear gather crust. The alloy finish so shiny and new blusters and sparkles in the morning sun. Think of the employee of the month. Go now and face north. See the Styrofoam cooler with tiny blue dots full of ice while angry slack jaws grind. Fully-laden, the package delivery truck departs the regional sorting facility and turns onto the main road into town.

Poetic

Ivan Paganacci: The K-01 may have its revenge. Sigma went with DSLR mount for mirrorless and rumors say this is the way Canon and Nikon will go, too (for FF). I'd like to see Pentax get back in now with a mirrorless version of the K-P as a stopgap until they can prepare a new system with a short registration distance.

If you think over FF mirrorless does not have a size advantage when the usage is professional multi-lens in nature. And the Canikon lens catalogue is so vast: No need for a new lens system. And as an added bonus: no lens adapter will work with it. So DSLR lens mount system has advantages.

kadardr: the leaf shutter with fill-in flash feature of X100s cannot be reproduced with any MILC of today. so any of the suggestions above is a serious compromise. but its good to have some information to chew on.

leaf shutter can synchronize flash up to the highest shutter speed (1/2000).

No viability in the universe of smartphones.

Sony must have kept this one (A900) in line with regular updates of the sensor, electronics and shutter for sentimental reasons and at a high price as their last steam engine (DSLR) camera. (Mostly sentimental reasons of the users). The finder was great.

On article Nikon D7500 vs Nikon D500: Which is better for you? (397 comments in total)

I do not understand the complains about the comparison, the specs and prices etc. You are able to buy the D7200, the D500 or the D7500 as you wish, and according to your needs and pocket book. Every buyer can decide on their own and can make a good decision from the available models. One thing is sure the IQ of all APS-C models will be practically the same.

I would like to have an X100 style MF camera with a 40-45mm equivalent lens, and lots of manual focusing aids, because the large sensor would make AF molasses slow.

The most important question to ask: why do you wanna buy a MF, or rather specifically the Fujifilm GFX 50S? Hopefully not for DOF, or because it is hip, or because you can show it to your friends. What does ultimate IQ means for you personally? How do you wanna use this IQ? You want to have ultra high quality or ultra large prints? Or just want to crop your images to a large-large extent?
The other important question not answered here: What MF is good for in general? What this crop MF format is good for in particular? Well this latter is not answered in the article. Or is it?

In reply to:

kadardr: From a practical point of view there is no real difference between the Fujifilm and the Canon camera. Even at ISO 3200 the difference is minuscule. In my view the flexibility of the Canon system makes up for the most of the differences. Some straightforward direct comparison is needed. (I actually shoot Nikon)

Marcio_napoli: This is my evaluation of the present studio scene. Further the size difference of this MF sensor and the FF sensors is roughly the same as between FF and APS-C sensors. Thus I figure the upgrade level between FF and MF might be similar or the same. If you need that quality boost then OK, you need an MF camera. If you need even better, the big guys of MF class are all there.

On article Nikon D5600 review: making connectivity a snap? (363 comments in total)

The only real problem here is older lens connectivity, and the whole DX lens selection issue. OK, independents may save the day if you are into lenses.

On article Sony SLT a99 II Review (1578 comments in total)
In reply to:

rapaport: I have tested the 99 ii during a day. This beast combines all I want to have in one single body, fast AF/AF-C (even in low light) great picture, a lot of details, very responsive functions. In one singe body!!! That is how I personally define a holy user experience. I sold my hole Olympus equipment (E-M1) to switch to a completely new system and the 99 ii covers all my actual needs. But I have serious concerns to built up a new E-mount System. Is there anyone who think it is still a good idea to enter the E-Mount world? My other option is to buy the D500 for Sports and the D810 for landscape with only FF lenses. What would you do if you were in my situation???

Depends on your lens needs.

In reply to:

OlyPent: Someone said that back-lighting and other such techniques didn't have much impact on larger sensors. Seems right. At 1600 ISO RAW, the Nikon D810 output looks as good as the more modern Sony.

If it is 1/3-1/2 stop light loss, then it is 20-30% less light reaching the sensor. Let us say 25% less as average. If there is less than 1/2 stop difference between A7RII and A99II in high ISO performance, it means that the A99 sensor was tweaked to be better than the A7RII sensor. Or the new SLT mirror is wasting less light.

It seems the world of photography is obsessed with the pentaprism shape, because in most cases there is no or much smaller pentaprism under the shape.
