Looks like he enjoy using 10-18 f4 apsc lens on A7r, what's wrong with 16-35 f4?

Overpriced half baked gimmicks.

Jonathan F/2: All you people who keep saying 30mm is an odd focal length for M43 are a bunch of lemmings. Apparently you've never shot with a 58mm or 60mm lens. 58mm is an awesome focal length, acting more like a wide telephoto. 50mm is actually the awkward focal length since it's neither wide or long enough for anything.

There are 13 reviews on bhphoto with e-mount, 0 reviews on m43, $ tell the truth.

There are 13 reviews on bhphoto with e-mount, 0 reviews on m43, maybe it tells sigma a truth:

e-mount users like it A LOT.
m43 users don't care about your `adapted` apsc lens.

So don't waste your time on making more m43 lens, their lens line are very saturated.
Focus your resource on e-mount apsc or FF.

On article First sample images from 20MP Sony Cyber-shot RX10 III (194 comments in total)

It's really impressive with full 600mm and wide open f4 shots
I have a RX10, the 200m f2.8 is so soft wide open, f4 might comparable but consider RX10 iii reaches 3x more range.
As a mirroless shooter for years, I almost forgot the wonders of super telephoto
these samples bring back my sprit especially on imgae 57 the arcatraz island, it's only a tiny spot on a 200mm lens...

On article Sony introduces new XQD and SD cards (43 comments in total)

The irony is there is no Sony digital camera to support these fast cards.
Been years they've stick to USB 2.0 and UHS-I, even worse with A7rII which generate 80MB raw files.

It's like FZ1000 vs RX10 all over again:
6 month later, but with more affordable price and features.
anticipate discounts with RX100 series, love the competition.

I really want fuji to consider upgrade their sensor to at least 24Mp to match the competition.

On article Ricoh GR II: What's new and what does it mean? (206 comments in total)

I think GR II did 2 things right:
1. Save you $30 to buy a eye-fi card
2. You can now purchase clearance priced GR

Looks like Sony recycled the lens on RX10, it's still say "Carl Zeiss" instead of "Zeiss".

Link | Posted on Jun 10, 2015 at 23:22 UTC as 79th comment

Actually, the optical construction worth $499, it's the golden ring triple the price, Can't imaging what will happen when Nikon release a lens with double golden rings...

In reply to:

Marek Rucinski: This is an example of an interesting practice: put some hardware in the device, for which the user pays (the cost of the wifi chip was included in the price), and then increase the value proposition of the product (by enabling the feature) *after* the product has been sold (!)... or not.

I think this practice is not only dishonest, but also damaging to the client (who pays for a feature he may never see enabled in the end) and therefore should attract attention of relevant regulating bodies.

Sadly, examples of very similar practices start to pop out regularly (uncompressed hdmi in Canon 5d III, cropped hdmi output in Nikon D600), but this seems to be the boldest example to date. In case of Canon/Nikon it's difficult to prove dishonesty, because they can claim genius, and incompetence of their engineers, respectively. Situation here is different, because there are physical chips that were obviously meant to be there from the beginning, but were intentionally not enabled.

I have a Sony action camera got the latest firmware to enable 1080/60p recording, previously it only have 1080/30p.
