Emadn13: f1.4 sample portraits are too shallow in my opinion,with this price range a 135mm f1.8 would be better reasonable shallow depth with same bokeh
but this lens is so good for low light,you could take some lowlight shots

Oh. Thanks. I don't feel THAT dumb now.

HowaboutRAW: How about some dark interiors with challenging lighting using ISOs above say 3200 with the D750.

So yes, this lens looks amazing in daylight.

If it's shot at 1.4, it's a lens test as well.

Only no rock bands, please. How about stuffed animals at the museum?

What is "OP"?

It's probably obvious. I'm probably dense.

Nice photos. Thank you.

When you get the opportunity, how about some low-light-high-ISO-large-aperture shots?

All the best,
Pat

Kiwisnap: Would have been nice to see it on a D810 and a D5 instead of a 750.

The cityscape series was shot with a D810.

Nice sharpness at 1.4.

Thar price, ouch! I'll have to wait till my liver grows back again.

raindance: That's an expensive Minolta, cough, Sony lens.

Raindance, watch that cough. Have a couple belts of what's good for what ails you.

justmeMN: "those orders could take up to three months to fulfill as Sony expects the lens to popular and that demand will out-strip supply for some time." -DPR

Yup, at $3300/$2600, every Sony camera owner will buy one. :-)

Livers are fetching very attractive prices at this time.

In reply to:

steelhead3: Is the price 3300 or 2600? unclear but Sony uses price to tamp down demand

Weeel, if they charge $9999.99, that'll tamp it down to aitch ee double toothpicks.

naturetech: Equivalent to F16 on an 8X10 view camera, pass.

"Equivalent to F16 on an 8X10 view camera"

Wha'?

babart: Oh good, another Sony lens I can't afford. :)

I think I'll just get a Sony R10 (model 1, heh) and enjoy the 24-200 f/2.8 lens for $848.

No on the DL.

You'll scout the Internet in vain for news on the DL line.

This is news that hasn't happened yet.

So Western has eaten Sandisk. Does anyone think this a good thing?

Wonder if there's any notable shutter-shock issue.

QuarryCat: Canon EOS 5DSR -
is one of the most innovative cameras!
Just give it a try!
And don't forget about the lenses, there is not one single Sony or even Zeiss lens that can compete with newest Canon EF lenses.
And EF-M lenses will come, I think they are trying to keep the camera small, then you need lenses with f:6.3 or mFT or Nikon 1 Sensor.

Tell me more.

You intrigue me.

GodSpeaks: So what exactly is the disappointment? Other than they should done this earlier.
Seems like a fine camera to me, and I am not even a Canon fan. The only thing I can see really lacking would be 4K video.

Your move Nikon.

"So what exactly is the disappointment? Other than they should done this earlier."

Correct. There's no real expression of disappointment per se in the camera.

Krich13: OK, I am not sure I’m getting this straight.
A lens almost a stop _slower_ than Batis 85, _without_ autofocus, _without_ IS weighs 100 grams MORE than Batis? And costs $100 more too? Is it a joke?

"The Loxia is heavier, so it costs more! Got it?"

Everybody knows that photographic gear is sold by the pound. That's why Canon and Nikon DSLRs (with prosthetic battery) are as big as manhole covers.

Nindy: No fast zooms, no 4K, no 120fps, no zebras, no eye focus, weird flip out design.. but good af..
I don't know if it's worth what they asking, the competition offers more at the same price point but won't have as good af.

What we need is a good shootout comparing the M5 with competing cameras. For that, you'd need a team of experienced pros.

Right, DPR? (Nudge, poke)
