inspiron530: I remember a lot of interview question about FF body before the K1 days.
Pentax always say, they are not focusing on developing a FF body and use their small R&D budget as an excuse. That was when FF DSLR still in big demand. Nikon Canon made load of money from that sector.
Back then, Pentax spend money on what? Multi color camera body & smaller sensor camera like the Q, and Did they make enough money? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
then they released the K1. What happen after they release the K1? it SALE and made money!!!

Now Mirror-less demand is going up and up. you ask them about their mirrorless, and they pretty much use the same excuse when ask about FF body back then. They can not even understand what is mirrorless, when people talk about ... mirrorless body. yeah, on live view, our DSLR will turn to a mirrorless, lol

Pentax will wait for another people to make ton and ton of $$$ then Pentax will release their own FF + APSC mirror-less that doesn't look like a plastic toy. just give them time.

A full frame GR would be interesting for me though. Or a medium format mirrorless fixed lens camera with leaf shutter.

The Macro Art is interesting. The 105mm beast, well, if someone really badly needs a 105/1.4 I should just go for the Nikon one anyway. For Canonites may be interesting, but Canon has the 85/1.2, so why bother. I consider the Sigma 105/1.4 a showpiece, a tour de force item more than something useful. I know people who are a glassmaniacs (the more is better), but in practice little use.

Re thé DOf when shooting portraits you neeed a f1,2 mft lens to achieve the same results as a ff f1,8 which costs half the price of a f1,2 mft Lens. This is to be considered as well as noise is present from 800 iso

Richard Butler: As soon as you change the angle of view, you change the perspective (perspective change is dependent on AOV). There is a depth of field advantage of smaller sensors using the same angle of view. The distance has more effect on DOF (macro photography) than stopping down the lens.

- Sensor size does not modify the DOF effect of the focal length, but sensor size does change the angle of view of the same focal length.
- If you want the same DOF effect as a FF camera you just buy a 75mm or 100 mm m43 lens and stand further away from the subject.
- Actually deeper DOF can be an advantage in many situations.

stevevelvia50: I can't speak for the new Panasonic Lumix DC G9, I used to shoot with the Nikon D 7200, and moved on to the Olympus OMD EM 1 Mark II. Here's my take on micro four thirds with good glass compared to other formats. My dislike for the evf aside, after carefully comparing side by side, pixel peeking over and over again, a friends Canon 6D mirror up with the 16-35 f4 and 24-105, with my EM 1 Mark II with the 12-100 pro, I could see no difference in formats shot at 200 iso! The 16-35 f4 may have had a very slight edge in sharpness in only the far corners of the image, the 12-100 however seemed to have more acuity than the 24-105 tested, but overall amazingly close! Then there is equivalency of course, but I won't get into that. Bottom line, I believe that if using equal quality glass, 20 x 30 prints would be indistinguishable between the two. Images were viewed on a 4K monitor at 100%..

OK, you are speaking about iso 200. What about the comparison at iso 1600? Just iso 1600, and not an otherworldly iso 16 000?

In reply to:

kadardr: I am Nikonite. My alternative is the Nikon 180mm f/2.8 AF. Very good lens and with AF. Great for headshots. Using that I say I do not want a 135mm f2 manual only.

Yes, you are right. I have chosen the more affordable (though much different)) alternative.

I would rather get Adobe to totally rethink and rebuild their software from scratch. No new keyboard, but a totally new interface would be necessary. Shortcuts? That is so nineties.

This is not photo art, this is political propaganda. The portrait part is insignificant. Pathetic times we live in.

Lovely gallery from Wemei, who really knows how to use this lens. Leica should award her with the lens. She could hold "how to" trainings on this.

On article Fujifilm X-E3 Review (753 comments in total)

X-E3 got a very clear differentiation of UX and target audience compared to X-T2 and X-T20. The user interface of new cameras should converge more towards smartphone photo apps UI than the other way around. The world now has much much more smartphone users than camera users. The sheer boasting about image quality is absolutely not enough any more. The use of an eye level viewfinder with a touch screen is not totally figured out yet. Using at least 4" touch screens should be the trend.

Paul Auclair: anybody aware of the recent statistics on how many on duty law enforcement officers are shot and/or killed by "civilians"?
i'd bet most, if not all, law enforcement officers are keenly more aware of that statistic than the general public are.

Well, no, but this one is consolidated yearly: http://killedbypolice.net/

In reply to:

aioravecz: Seems like a great camera, but nothing really special compared to my a99II...probably a bit more rugged and the AF is probably on par. The video seems great on paper but will probably be dissapointing in real life. they should have incorporated a oversampled 1.5x crop mode....

The A99II loses ca. 30% of light due to the semitransparent mirror. The A99 cannot take Nikon lenses. It does not have an optical VF if you miss one. Otherwise it is just fine, with comparable specs.

On article Ten things we're hoping for from the Nikon D850 (482 comments in total)

I am guessing the launch of D850 will be at around Q1-Q2 2018. Something similar happened after the announcement of development of Fujifilm GFX 50. Though I would be happier with and accelerated launch like end of this year.

The first one just painfully reminding me why did they not develop a digital fullframe rangefinder camera á la Nikon I. Or something with fixed lens Leica Q or RX1 style. Well, OK, I can live without that.
