RolliPoli: With lenses there are three principal characteristics:
Sharp
Fast
Cheap
You can only have two of those three.
Which two would you prefer?

I was talking to RolliPoli. ;)

For me, this is what mirrorless is all about. I've been having fun with my A7 and mostly Nikkor AI glass.
I hope this forum turns out to be popular.

In reply to:

Lift Off: There's a big advantage to mirrorless that I think should be mentioned in this article: the ability to use legacy lenses (from virtually any system available), with the added bonus of being able to manual focus faster and with more accuracy than with any other system.

Along with size, I know this was what made me jump from dSLR to mirrorless.

@7829mark: I'm talking about simple MF photography, without all the bells and whistles.

On article Sony Alpha 7R II: Real-world ISO invariance study (369 comments in total)
In reply to:

Magnar W: People are screaming about some hardly visible artifacts, shown at 200% pixel size. But hey, turn your eyes to the edges! Heavy posterization/purple color shift! Bad, bad!

This is caused by pushing the ISO 100 file way over the top! No one working seriously with photography would push a ISO 100 file this hard for real world work, no matter which camera they are using.

This is exactly the same result I get when pushing my ISO 100 Sony A7 raw files to ISO 6400. User errror, for sure.

:-)

"No one working seriously with photography would push a ISO 100 file this hard for real world work, no matter which camera they are using."

@Magnar W: did you look at the beautiful shot that DPReview bothered to share and explain how it was done? The one with the lady on the horse, pushed by 4EV? Not "serious" enough?

DPReview, please forward this article to Sony. Right now.

I've said in a previous article that this was a "perfect example on the RAW compression subject". Glad to see you've picked it up again, with a more in-depth explanation.

First the 50mm f/0.95 and now this 85mm f/1.2. Well done, Zhong Yi.

Oh, I learned from the D600 episode, too: sold it and bought an A7.

I'm sure I'd sooner forget that thing at home than losing a cap.

In reply to:

marleni: From what I read here and there, the new Sonys are "revolutionary"
- but as you write correctly, Sony has "experimented with many different concepts" in the last years - every one being hailed as the one big thing when they came out..
this makes me personally a bit reluctant to wait and see and not spend money too soon on a new concept ...who knows what Sony does NEXT, no?!!

On the contrary, really. With this camera you know you'll have nearly every system covered, old and new. You don't get any more future-proof than this.

Someone please forward this news to Nikon.

Well done, Fujifilm.

It's the samples at f/1.4 that will sell this lens, not the "references" or the "homages". And they better be *that* good.
