petemod: CORRECTION:

"(bested by the Sony Cyber-shot HX400V with its 1500mm equivalent reach)"

I just clicked on your Sony HX400V link and you state in the specs that it has a 24-1200mm lens.

That would be the H400 (no x) it has 63x zoom range. It' s the el cheapo version without goodies and inferior hardware but with a longer zoom range.

At least it' s predecessor the x-5 had an articulating screen and looked better. This is aimed even lower. Very uninspired design. The zoomrange of these things is getting a bit ridiculous. Also there should not be more than 10mp on a 1/2.3" sensor. More is waisted because of diffraction and just adds to noise.

VENTURE-STAR: Everything indicates that this is a pretty awful, pointless piece of equipment that has little to offer anyone who is serious about taking pictures using a modern digital camera body. At £480, they are having a bit of a laugh I'd say!

you don't get it

nerd2: Still way too expensive for what we get. Helios 85/1.5 has proper aperture, more than one stop faster and cheaper (used to be WAY cheaper)

That is not Petzval but a Biotar design. From the 1920's. Cheaper biotar is the Helios 44 (2, M(1 to 6))

Looks like it doesn't prevent massive barrel distortion.

vFunct: This camera isn't for the idiot that thinks a bigger sensor is better.

You're right, it is for the fool who likes noisy and blurry pictures.

quezra: Drama incoming in 3... 2...

You yust destroyed your image of a artsy fartsy landscape fotographer Chippy99. MF is great for landscape btw despite shallow DOF. You just stop down and use a tripod. Super resolution.

LTZ470: f/1.2 = f/1.2 = f/1.2 = Shutter Speed...f/1.2 w/ f/2.4 DOF gives faster Shutter Speed which is THE critical factor...I'll say it again faster shutter speed with increased DOF which is advantageous in many applications... ;-)

The A7 is not the only FF camera. Canonikon look it up. You are the most hopeless fan boy I have met so far. Be proud of it. Flickr is a site for hopeless attention whores. There is never any negative or even constructive criticism. People only comment and like hoping you will watch and like and comment their photo's in return.

Under exposed, harsh flash light. Wrong bird in focus. Resolution so,so.

Try finding a F/ 0.6 lens for the em1. You will have a much harder time. You can just use a A-mount adapter on the A7 and have access to all A-mount Tele glass.

StevenE: Should also talk about the angle at which light strikes the sensor. In FF the angle at the corners is pretty extreme, causing light loss and vignetting. This becomes even more extreme in mirrorless cameras since the flange distance gets smaller, like Sony A7 series.
Smaller sensors may have an advantage in corners, especially in mirroless. I'd be interested in an in-depth analysis of the significance of sensor size, sensor design and flange distance

Only a problem with old range finder wide angle lenses on the a7. When you use FF SLR Lenses with an adapter your angle gets much less shallow because of the longer flange distance. Most vignetting is not due to the angle but the corners pushing the image circle.

When you crop a ff sensor shooting at higher iso that is not a fair comparison. You don't use the full sensor and the iso is higher. And resolution is les then 10mp when you crop to m43. Shoot at equivalent focal length and use the entire sensor.

You are saying that the shutter speed on crop camera's is faster with a F/1.2 lens.

gstadter: So, if I use cardboard or something, to block light from getting to left 1/2 side of the FF sensor in my D610, the resulting picture taken by the right side of the sensor will, in fact, have more "noise" because the camera had less total light to measure? (and not just 1/2 of an image) I've not tested this yet, but it would be a shock to me if the resulting image(right side of picture) actually became noisy just because I put cardboard over the opposite side of the sensor.

It will have the same noise at pixelpeep level. This noise is relatively more. Because you use only half the sensor you will inflate the noise more when viewing the picture. If you would have used the full frame the noise would be only half the size in viewing.

Great now I´ll just have to reference this article in future. Did anyone notice the APS-C 85mm F1.2 equivalent is more compact than the m43 one?

marc petzold: Since the release of that lens, i was interested when DPR would review this, thanks for this. :) a cheap alternative, for a DSLM: Get a Helios 44-2 58/2 Prime Lens, it does have a swirly bokeh, too. ;) Great as a portrait Lens onto a Sony E-Mount DSLM via M42 Adapter. Shot it at F2 or 2.2, and >2.8 w/o the swirly effect. Old mf lenses also have their very own "character" other then today's typical DSLR lenses...for instance, the older Zeiss T* coatings rendering a picture looking more "organic", unlike today's Zeiss T* coatings on current lenses...i prefer that older look.

The Cooke Kinic 25mm F1.5 will work well on m43
