go left to get 700D crop, go right for D5500 one

Well, actually I wanted to show difference among 700D, 760D, and D5500:

On article Opinion: The myth of the upgrade path (1594 comments in total)
In reply to:

WGVanDyck: An interesting article, however, there is a fallacy within “Fallacy 2”. The manufacturers introduced a false premise that the APS-C lenses would do the same things as the FF lenses they try to emulate (35DX=50FX). The reality is; you are going to get the native characteristics of a lens’ focal length regardless of the sensor you put it on. As an example: a 35mm DX lens is going to give you 35mm lens distortion and DOF characteristics when mounted on an APS-C sensor. Other than angle of view, it (or any 35mm) is not equivalent to a 50mm lens. But, with the DX 35mm, you have all of the light falloff, distortion, and filter vignetting issues that would be reduced or nonexistent if a 35mm FF lens were used. The only APS-C lenses that make any sense are the wide to ultra-wide focal lengths. I love my Nikkor 12-24mm DX, but otherwise I find FF lenses don’t have the DX lenses' edge problems. So, there is a good reason to buy FF lenses, even when one doesn’t plan “upgrading” to a FF camera.

And vice versa. If you like a 35mm FF on your APS-C body, you'll be unpleasantly surprised by its distortion and light falloff with your new FF body :)

urix: What did you mean with "3EV at the center" of low-lit scene? Is it correct to assume that the center illumination is 20 lx? Thanks.

@yabokkie
Really? Illumination of 25-30 lux can be learned from EXIF data.

TWIZEEL: I know the way - OVERPRICED product never sells. Even 600 bucks for conveyor style of production for lens still expencive. 20 years ago hand-adjusted on optical bench Carl Zeiss was cheaper.

But 20 years ago the Buck has been much more valuable ;)

In reply to:

Mike Cialowicz: Odd... they claim it has front and rear control dials, but all I see is a rear dial. Is the front dial the toothed thing surrounding the shutter button? Is that awkward to use?

Mike, did you count the dial around a shutter release button?

Yes, sir. A Digicam like Sony RX100-II is more capable than Lumia 1020, giving a better sensor, a tilting screen, etc. But it is dedicated photo tool which price tag is similar to the one of the multi-purpose Lumia. Except that, we are unlikely to find a dozen of P&S digicams, justifying easily the fuss with a separate photo gadget.

DSLRs are in a diferent league. But not all ILCs of course. Personally, I had a chance to play with RX100 and NEX-6 side by side at a local store yesterday. It's all about an optics, but I find the RX100 to focus quicker and more reliably at any of its focal lengths than the NEX with conventional kit lenses. Not to mention size difference.

In reply to:

kewlguy: Why is the 24-70/4 IS much more expensive than 24-105/4 IS? The new zoom better be as good as the best primes! But then it's still f/4...

Because 24-70/2.8 II is much more expensive than 24-70/2.8

These RRPs would be ok only if Canon is going to follow the Sigma's way. Compare Sigma 24-70 prices: $1400 MSRP and the street prices being less than $900.

kevin_r: I second GRAFLI:
Why on earth didn't they put Windows 7.8 or even Windows 8 or Android on this phone?
Whatever the stupid reason - probably political infighting in the company - I hope they put the same camera or better into the Lumina 950/1000 with dual core processor and Windows 8.

PureView has a special purpose chip processing all photo/video from the camera. They have written lots of code on C/C++ to support it. Windows Phone 7 requires applications to be written in C#. Why bother to rewrite this software if Windows Phone 8 supports native applications? I guess they'll port it to WP8 and we will see Lumia PureView before the end of the year (next year?). Just some thoughts :)

doctorxring: This thing sure looks a lot like my Sony SAL 18-250. Has an HSM motor though.

You're wrong. Tamron and Sony 18-250 ultrazooms both have maximum aperture of f/6.3 at the long end.

I'd like to know it before I start shooting.

WOW! The photo at a poorly lightened bar shows a crazy exposure: -13.33 Lv, i.e. more than 1.5 hours of exposure @ iso100 and f/4! :-P
Please fix shutter speeds shown at the image subscripts. They are reciprocal (e.g. 25 sec instead of 1/25 and so on).

ogl: Why this 75/1.8 is so big?

Maybe for it is an MSC lens with onboard focusing motor?
BTW I think this 75/1.8 will be about 60 mm x 70 mm (D x L).
