RayVagh: I don't like color from Nikon cameras. Always yellowish. I prefer Canon, more natural.

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.

Kostasm: thumbs up for pixel peeping but please hire a nikon guy for goddamn color

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.

Randy Veeman: But Sony marketing says their lenses with out those gaskets and sealing tape are 'weather resistant' too.

Nice to see some REAL lenses made for photographers who make a living out doors in the snow, sand, rain, and dust, and not just in a studio or in fair weather.

Nigel Wilkins: Is it just me, or is the left side of this shot less sharp than the right?

it's a DOF issue most likely. f5.6 at 135mm is not enough to cover the entire scene evenly.

salamander1: "One of the major points of that entire section was to dissuade users from ever moving AF points manually."

real photographers want to choose their own focal point for various reasons, which is one of the most important things in photography i dare say. there is nothing like putting your square on your subjects eye, not the forehead, not the nose, and not the eyelashes, and taking that sublime and masterful shot of exquisite beauty and excellence. canon pro bodies can do this very well, real quick and easy, thank you very much. :)

i didn't miss the point, i was just being facetious. sorry about that. i understand all this.
