On article Sigma announces full-frame 14-24mm F2.8 DG HSM Art lens (232 comments in total)

User3787089555: Sony, please follow this pattern and give us a 14-24 2.8

if tele ends by 24mm, you will need some standard lens, such as 2470 or 35 or 50 to team up with 1x-24mm ultra wide + tele-zoom.

if pick up 1635, you can just team up 70-x00 tele-zoom in tip.
1635 2.8 is very useful for both landscape and portraits, and easier for filters.

Chriscotech: The A9 menu system is a huge improvement on the camas before it. Just a few months later we have the A7RIII. It has even better menus and functionality even more in many ways, including, but not limited to:
• Touch screen moving of focus viewfinder points
• Can displaying continuous shots in groups
• Separate photo/video custom key settings
• Ratings button
• S-LOG and other profiles
• Proxy recording

I am pretty sure most, if not all of these improvements could be added to the A9 by a firmware update. It would be a better camera and make it easier to work with both cameras side by side.

Sadly, I don’t think Sony will do this, they are much more interested in selling you a new camera. This may be ok with consumers, but professionals want products that can be updated. Many aspects of the flagship A9 have been superseded by its cheaper sibling, in just a few months.

Sony now needs to start acting like a company that wants to be in the professional market, like they say they do.

“Separate photo/video custom key settings” this is a very useful wish list !

from tech point of view, a9 is definitely a tech-revolution.
while from users-value point of view, A7R3's spec meets more people's demand.

very nice trail-shots!
sharpness & CA looks like its weakness when wide open, matching the positioning. IQ looks like way behind Sony FE G version.
N shooters still need to go for 70200/4VR.

peeyaj: Any word who made the sensor?

(Sony's highest mp BSI sensor is 42mp)

simple, NIKON removed the on-sensor PDAF

Hibiscusbloom: The no blackout is amazing but i didn't feel that the AF acquisition on the 100-400G with the a9 was any faster than the Canon 100-400 II on the 1 DX or 7D2. That's my feeling after trying it at the shop. I don't know about tracking as I wasn't able to in that short 10-minute trial with scores of others waiting. Please correct me if I was very wrong. Much appreciated.

looks like in day light, AF speed of 1dX2/D5/A9 are very close, but in low light, a9 might be faster...

In reply to:

paolo260252: For about 40 years I've been using Nikon in my work as a photographer. In recent times I started using Canon because some lenses are better especially those that allow shifting, the so-called PC. In my opinion a body must be heavy enough to dampen the vibration and big enough to be easily grasped. The A9 is too small and too light for a photographer, whether it's a man or a woman. Performance and speed are important but not all. The pentaprism offers a realistic view and not an electronic translation of the scene. When you frame with a mirror less the scene looks like an imperfect TV screen. Will the future of cameras be mirror less? I tried Hasselblad and Fuji and the file is not at all better than the one of a D3X or a 5DS. In addition, they have the problem of battery life and sensor warming up. So why this enthusiasm? Sometimes I would like to speak with some of the engineers and technicians of Nikon and Canon just to tell them what a photographer really needs from a company.

I would say put the battery grip on it, perfect size with light weight(relatively).
currently SONY newly developed lens are great (design), pick up a good copy.

not sure, but from the studio shots, ISO100 is "a lot" worse than a7m2: less sharp

1Dx4me: sony photog products while sound good on paper, they still need to be tested and recognized by the pros! i am positive that canon lenses will come ahead all around if tested side by side when sony lenses! sony is relatively a new comer in optics. i think sony needs to do something about those high price to make them more appealing and reachable to masses, IMHO! good luck.

maybe depends, looks like "only" 35/1.4 L2 has better CA control (due to BR lens?).
but maybe Sony really needs to improve lens quality control for better consistence

On article Updated: Sony a9 samples with Raw support (447 comments in total)

looks like processed style is more pink/blue -tone. more canon style.
maybe WB-adjustment + some DRO1/2, can perfectly help, for OOC JPG.
and AWB preference can also be set since a6500/a99m2 & a9. It's not a big deal for me.

what's more important to RAW IQ, could be ISO performance between 3200~12800, comparing to 7R2.

In reply to:

(unknown member): I'm sure Sony will eventually come up with a 300/2.8... Given their product cycles, the A12ii might out by then, but I'm sure they'll make it.

What concerns me however, are the ergos. How easy are these to hold? I rented the A7r and A7rii, and they were never as comfortable (I'm not even suggesting balanced) after a couple of hours into my day.

I would say 1st to come up long prime would be 400mm, as there is 300/2.8 & 500/4 in a-mount .
it's rumored there is a FE 400/4 under development...

In reply to:

livelong: I really like this new out of focus bokeh. Once again Sony catches Nikon and Canon off guard.

check out the real-world shots, NIKON'S DC is too old maybe, the boken is far inferior than M 135/2.8 STF...
but i do hope sony will soon bring out a 135/2 STF GM OSS with faster T value(T3.2 OR T2.8), don't mind it's bigger/heavier

TristanW: well, look at real-world shot comparison, sigma art has sharper left-corners, while GM has a bit better consistency, especially in overall right side(F1.4~5.6)

85GM

In reply to:

dkyl: The 100mm 2.8 STF looks interesting. There's a Laowa 105mm f2 STF that seem to perform pretty well but is manual focus and lacks stabilisation although depending on the body you might get back some form of stabilisation.

Laowa 105mm f2 STF 's boken is way worse than 135/2.8 STF, especially during night shots

In reply to:

rz350: And it is only $200 more than the Sony 70-200! That is impressive for pricing, considering that the Sony has to rely on the camera body for stabilization. I must admit that I thought Sony lenses were expensive to state the obvious, but Nikon is setting new standards.

sony 70200GM has on-lens OSS, plus IBIS for rest 3-axis compensation
