princecody: Your next purchase-this Fuji or a Rolex 🤔

" Isn't it the quality, design, and functionality that really matters, just as is the case with camera equipment?" if that were true, there would be no high-end.

Dimijis: Can someone enlighten me as to why a manual lens that communicates EXIF data is such a big advantage ?
Will it make me better pictures ? will it get me more clients ? or make my life overall more fulfilled ?
Coz I would argue that a lens void of any electronics that can fail is more of an advantage.

Not only that, Camley -it activates the viewfinder zoom with the first twist, Something else I suspect we both want.

mmarian: Quote " In laymen's terms, this means that autofocus should be just as fast, and just as accurate in both portrait and landscape orientations."
I think you are wrong in your explanation. Orientation does not affect the gravitational forces as the glass elements move parallel to the ground in both instances. Where it can have affect is if you point the camera to the ground or upwards to the sky. Than the motors need to overcame the weight.

"Orientation does not affect the gravitational forces as the glass elements move parallel to the ground in both instances." While the lenses are round, some of the sliding mechanical components are not, and it's very likely the forces would be different depending on orientation.

MarioV: I'm not convinced that this is really about gender but a clever attempt to stand out in a very saturated field. Very talented and respected male and female photographers are already out there, their work and ethic clearly speak for themselves. So the question is, how do you get noticed? What's your angle?

Indeed.

So, you're saying it's a bit of a win/win?

Stejo: An unstabilized 135mm. Just what the doctor ordered.

A lot of those "sharp" shots I got with my 135 in 1968 wouldn't be sharp on a 42mp sensor, now.

JF69: "We can't look at everything through a predominantly white, male gaze — that's irresponsible and, frankly, colonial. "
That's a false narrative, & of course racist.

Nothing false about it, nor is speaking truth to power, racist.

rz350: Is DPR going to test this? Does Rishi have a copy yet? More importantly will this lens work with a metabones adapter providing a low cost alternative for Sony E mount users that they can actually afford to mount on their A7R2's?

if you can't afford the lenses -you can't afford an A7RII

vscd: 33MB installable @windows.Quite a few others could learn from that, especially Adobe and CaptureOne.

This is only a problem if you're trying to run it off a thumb-drive.

skanter: Will it do anything significantly better than LR?

So, other than Fuji x-trans, and those who want freebies?

In reply to:

polizonte: I use a Stanley Fat Max tool bag that cost me $10 at some defunct store at the Kittery Maine Outlets and though it does not carry a portable studio... for air travel it qualifies, dimensions-wise, as a carry-on bag that fits under the seat. I have carried two D800e bodies w/24mm & 60mm lenses, passport, SB700 flash, tooth paste, snacks, toiletries, rechargers, Nikon batteries, etc. Once I land in Medellín, Colombia, I can walk around with it since it it doesn't look like a photo gear bag - "casi camuflado" (almost camouflaged) ...My wife (Colombian) hates it because it is ugly - cultural shock I guess. My attitude is, as some say in Medeillín, (of course my wife doesn't´t talk that way) "No me importa un culo" (I don't give a s_ _ _ ).

I'm a pro carpenter and have three bags like that -by the time I padded them adequately, and did something bout the lack of covers on the outside pouches, and lack of any rain-cover -I would have been better off buying a camera bag. I don't think you're fooling anybody with that "I'm really a carpenter" schtick -but to each his own.

AlanG: This seems totally stupid. If you want to teach a child how to use an actual camera instead of a cell phone why not get an inexpensive real camera for them? There must be tons of cheap old ones that have manual controls.

Should'a quit while you were ahead, AlanG ;)

Eric Hensel: These two lenses are nearly identical in sharpness -I actually see more acuity, in places, with the Sony, but think it may be where I happened to look...minor differences, but as Phil Askey used to say: "there isn't much in it" The Bokeh is slightly better with the Sony, and the CA slightly worse. Flip a coin. Gotta say, Chris, I'm not seeing anywhere near the differences you claim in the sharpness widget...

Sorry, Chris --I disagree. They are amazingly close in sharpness -but you had to have a "winner".
My point is the sharpness is comparable, the CA control goes to Sigma, and the bokeh is smoother in the Sony. There is no winner -pay your money for one of these fine lenses.

Yxa: The Canon 85 1.2 weighes 1025g and the Sigma 85 Art is 1131g
106g not that huge difference

"I've carried much larger lenses than this around all day and I'm 71 years old."
Right, tbcass -kids these days, hahaha...

In reply to:

Svetoslav Popov: No, thanks. I tried past versions of DXO (at the time that i repeatedly compared all big raw converters and finally choose LR4), but the program was unstable, the quality was cr@ppy, and their marketing/pricing was beyond ridiculous. They had a good distortion correction and the prime NR is great, but that's not enough.

Seems they're getting nervous?

16 gigs of ram to process a still?
