  • Buy the Sigma at your peril. The Nikon cream machine (85 1.4D) is a beauty for portraiture, you won’t find a better one. If you want it for landscape then maybe the Nikon 85 1.8G would better ...
  • M43 and smalller is not good enough for my purpose. APSC - exceptable FF - desirable All assuming quality optics attached.
  • Nikon’s best value zoom if you get it for kit prices. Who ever mentioned the Sigma needs shooting 😂 awful lens that can’t focus for toffee.
  • Every mirrorless camera has AWFUL battery life, it’s just the nature of the beast. The answer is to take numerous batteries with you when you go out and shoot.
  • You are deluded if you think you can sell your Somy for $400 less free a year. Sony’s have the worst depreciation out of all the ca,era manufacturers.
  • Anyone who can’t make a great quality image with the 70-300p is just a poor photographer, especially in ‘daylight’.
  • Big, very poor focusing, sterile image, poor resale value.... i would and have chosen to avoid the Sigma arts for these reasons. They however have good sharpness wide open which no doubt some dp ...
  • I find it strange someone wanting to know if other forum members are male or female. I’m not sure how it’s is relevant to photography at all. Are you sure you are not weeding out the chicks to hit ...
  • My next lens will be a 24mm 2.8 D. That will give me a lovely set of 'D & AIS' primes. of course I'm scowering the used markets for a clean version at a reasonable price.
  • This lens is still sold new. I bought a new one in the uk 6 months back. It's an amazing portrait lens along with the 85 1.4D. The only strange thing about thee lens is it has no rear element, so ...
  • That's true but a ff sensor is typically gong to have a better low light noise performance, so stopping down to achieve a large d.o.f is only going to at the least 'equalise'. There are not many ...
  • All things being equal, a bigger sensor will yield better iq. If the pixel pitch is the same a bigger sensor will have a much higher resolution, if the mp count is the same the bigger sensor will ...
  • Well that's not true. Higher iq is down to the physics of having a bigger sensor. And a 35mm ff still looks different to 23mm apsc despite the similar field of view appearances.  It's a lot more ...
  • I prefer FF because I love the look, the d.o.f  and high iq. The problems with these threads is you will get those who feel the need to defend their own purchase choice. Realistically nearly ...
  • Sigma certainly do not match the micro contrast or 3D rendition of lesser element lenses. Take your fanboy goggles off....
  • That is correct. EVF is very usefully to beginners who haven't mastered exposure & are not sure how to compensate. It certainly won't disappear, it must be embraced for what it is. Unfortunately a ...
  • If you can't use an OVF I would question your knowledge in exposure. Look at the few butt hurt amateurs that can't master the OVF 😂 No need to get your knickers in a knot about it, just use the ...
  • EVF will never be as optically pleasing as a natural OVF, ever. There's no right or wrong, some are willing to put up with the evf for the things an OVF cannot give (wysiwyg & magnification). ...
  • It appears you are blinded by your fanboy glasses. The 24-70 has had a reputation as 'fragile' for years, but yours hasn't given you grief so it must not be true huh 😂
  • Replied in EVF versus OVF
    So you have come to prefer to use a viewfinder that has a much poorer refresh rate, and much worse resolution? Because you like high refresh rates and high resolution? 😂 Yeah.... makes perfect ...
