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.

In reply to:

Jim Evidon: If I read the article correctly, by employing a global shutter effect to the entire sensor, they could totally eliminate a mechanical shutter; either focal plane or leaf, and simply use the firmware to electronically turn the sensor on or off at user adjustable “speeds” resulting in a lighter, mechanically simpler and more accurate camera.

To the user, the controls could look familiar with dials and wheels, but the internals would be completely electronic. I expect the new product could hit the market within 2 years or much less. I suspect that the project is further along than is reported.

Times they are a changing.

they can simulate this. the shutter-click sound emitted by most camera phones for example when taking a picture is an auditory skeuomorph: it does not come from a mechanical shutter, which camera phones lack, but from a sound file in the phone's operating system.

In reply to:

sebasantos: Hello, I have a Canon 5D Mark III and I have focus peaking, zebras and lots of features that sony users say that canon are missing. And also my 5DIII has 14 stops dynamic range. It's free and easy to have those features. I don't use it for video, but there are also a lot of features for video like RAW video, etc, etc, etc.
I am not going to buy this camera, I don't need it but i am very interested in the sensor performance, because I hope that 5DIV is in its way and use the new sensor technology. If the 5DS sensor without the new technology close the gap between sensors, I think that the new sensor could be a very good surprise. The patent for this new sensor was introduced in 2014, so they were working in it for a long period of years.
