salamander1: sony slt alpha a55 was my first camera. read about it right here, on dpreview. i bought it in the fall of 2011. didn't know much about photography. six or seven months later i became jealous of other people's pictures and decided that i want to be a full frame man like them and purchased the glorious canon 5d3 and a bunch of glorious bokehlicious L lenses and never looked back.
i'm still learning.

i 've thought about it, bombastic. :)
oh, man, that glorious bokehlicious f/ 0.95 noctilux. i'm getting jealous again.

Joed700: All I wanted to know is that can this lens outperform the Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 L II? Does it have focus breathing issue like the Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 vR II?

no, i don't think it does. (outperform the canon)

69camaroSS: Funny how Canon can ignore a camera system for 4 years and nobody accuses them of abandoning the system, but Sony has to release a new camera every year or it gets accused of jumping ship.

camera systems are based on lenses and canon still has the best lens system in the world.

In reply to:

Blake Cook: Its is utterly absurd review this camera using Adobe RAW which cannot extract some of the data available to DPP. Specifically the additional DR available to dual pixel raw files. Adobe raw cannot get colours and contrast even close and has yet to get either close, since and including the 1Dx.

i agree with blake.

In reply to:

Mikael Risedal: so many myths are presented here , skin tones, etc.
learn to handle a raw file from a camera
instead of holding on to myths regarding skin tones, and some things can be measured=, DR, color quality, color accuracy etc. nothing that Canon does best

sorry mikael, the canon skin tones are not a myth but reality.
they are more pleasing, more print ready. gorgeous is the right word.
thousands of photographers can't be wrong.

salamander1: my 4 year old 5D mark III still takes better pictures than these, with better living color and character. patiently waiting for mark IV. ( it's about time)

steelhead: sony people always give everybody else a hard time.
i hope the new lens can also stream music from sony music and make everyone more happy.

bceye: yes, i do realize, of course. i was thinking about the final product, which is the purpose of any lens in combination with any body - to give us a final product which is the photo. i love the way canon 24-70mm f/2.8L II draws.

stevo - don't smoke crack. i smoke marlboro lights and drink scotch. that's enough for me. speaking of lenses, nothing can blow a Canon EF 300mm f/2.8L IS II USM away. not even the wind.
