garyknrd: These Cheap China phone's are great. I just picked up xiaomi mi 5. Could not be happier.

They are, if you live in Asia and don't need bands 12 and 17.

NDT0001: Great market move by samyang. These cine lenses are great quality optically and have all the features and functionality budget cine shooters need. At half the price of the Zeiss cp.2 and Schneider Xenon competitors, the price is simply unbelievable in comparison to other cine glass, these are the definition of bang for buck.

Tim, I think it's a safe bet that Sigma primes will arrive with $4000 (+/-) street price. Above XEEN, below Canon.

Angrymagpie: How does a cine lens become a summer blockbuster?
Regardless of the quality of the lens, Samyang should probably rethink what blockbuster means.

Are you suggesting that it is gear that makes movie a blockbuster?

$2500? Whatever.

This reminds of that old video of the guy beating on a Tak 50 with a sledge because he did not know how to fix it.

Let me just remove the 85/1.2 L II from the shopping cart and I will all over this deal.

RMillward: I had enough trouble with an Eye-fi card when it WAS supported that I've long since abandoned it. This was probably 3 or 4 years ago, and I knew then this would be the end result - not only do they not WANT to continue supporting these products, I honestly don't think they'd be CAPABLE of it even if they DID want to. As others have said, it's no real loss, the camera industry has moved on and there are other, more convenient solutions to the same problem that don't require paying a 100% premium over the price of a "normal" SD card.

Considering the fact that I can and do buy class 10 16GD Transcend cards for under $4, it's more like 1000% premium.

"we saw a significant difference between those using the white and black versions of the site, with those opting for the lighter theme spending almost twice as long and reading almost twice as many pages as those who stayed with the black theme. "

How about comparing it against age of an account, number of comments, uploaded photos, or whatever metric you use to measure active participation, not just consumption?

"the dark theme is not going away. Ever*"

Yeah, I read your lips.

Nikonandmore: "At this point, with these lenses, we find this update largely useless, and found ourselves reverting to the 'Green' mode that was default prior to this update for best performance".. what is 'Green' mode?

I recently bought a MkIV adapter to use with a Sigma 12-24mm F4.5-5.6 DG HSM II Canon Mount with my Sony a7RII. The adapter was almost as expensive as the lens and basically never finds focus.. as in, NEVER! What a waste of money and rip-off. Unfortunately for a job that I am doing, this Sigma is the only lens that is practical for me to use (or the Canon 11-24mm that would have cost 5 times more)..

Cause it does not exist?

Marksphoto: im not a big fan of the color off the sony sensor, it looks like the quality is high but just the hues turn me off

This is 2016. Colors can be what you want them to be.

Andy G: Wait until the seller discovers that PayPal will simply place his funds in pending, for no particular reason other than to make some interest. He will regret using ebay. :-)

Which is totally unlike Amazon, which always holds it.

Pat Cullinan Jr: Made by slave labor. Xixiang Town, ShenZhen, Guangdong, China.

Before the Civil War in this country, many people in the North would not purchase the products of slave labor. Maybe it's not as simple as that.

Was that sent from your iPhone?

Suave: That's a lot of words. But what LTE bands will it support? Will the bootloader be locked? Things like that, not the crazy mp's are important.

The same way I live with folks like you denying the facts of life.

Look, one of the major advantages of cell phones as cameras is their ability to send images from wherever you are. Therefore, data network compatibility is not a secondary feature at all.

Camera bits become utterly unimportant if the device can not be used for its primary purpose.

justnuaces: Interesting, thanks! :)

But... The Specifications in imperial measures? Seriously?
Be aware of the rest of the World, please.
You people from USA are so self-centered...

I'm waiting for the next review of the new 1.97 in lens. :P

You must have purposedly ignored the metric part.
