In reply to:

garyknrd: Sounds like a Pentax review. Except for the price?

the K-1 has better sensor, the SL got the red dot. Your choice.

ttran88: I'll just stick to my 18-55mm "kit" lens. Perfect size, build, OIS, good optics (if you get a good copy).

Elliot, 'good copy' and 'bad copy' apply to all brands. I've got bad samples from Zeiss (ZE 25/2, ZF 35/2), Canon (many 24-70 L II), Pentax (DFA 28-105, DFA 24-70, DA 35/2.4), Sigma (new 85 Art was severely decentered and replaced) and Fuji 18-55. It's common these days. Some will notice, some won't. The best way to tell is shoot cityscape/landscape and set the focus at infinity mark - see if the left/right part of the frame has equal sharpness.

In reply to:

Contra Mundum: It's not a bad lens, just soft, suffers from spherical and chromatic aberrations. But why is it priced so high? An optically better Canon EF-M 22/2 retails for $249, and was often available for $100 grey market.

because the sensors on the M sucked?

Nick Brundle - Photography: Stop using those silly adapters and mount this on the Nikon D810.
Then we can really see who the champion is

LOL seems like both Sony and NIkon fanboys are getting irritated by the Sigma,

In reply to:

mxx: I'm confused. Is this a test of the Sigma, or a comparison test between the Sigma and the Sony?

You couldn't notice it is both?

Frankly, 24MP without AA filter is more than enough for most people esp those who rarely print and only post photos in social medias.

In reply to:

Eric Glam: I would call this lens an "F4 lens", which happens to do OK with wider apertures.

Canon 85L has some glowings at f1.2 though sharp. The Sigma is contrasty and tack sharp at 1.4. The corners are not bad too.

In reply to:

IdM photography: Message for DxO: Why is the Tamron SP 85mm f/1.8 not in the database? This is also a super sharp lens... It would be great to compare it with the Sigma lens, especially the sharpness at f/1.8

The 85 art is better wide open than the Tamron. I've been using the 85 Art for 2 weeks, it is one hell of a lens.

villagranvicent: A new king is crowned... why Fuji lenses are not part of that kingdom??

Because dxo does not test Fuji lenses thanks to xtrans plus it's about FF lenses.

Alex Achucarro: Epitomises why I dropped Canon for Leica 😳 I don't even miss all the SLR features anymore.

Ok.

Pat Cullinan Jr: Would anyone care to address the question, Is it worth its price?

Which Pentax? QS1, or the DSLRs?

Not too expensive, either

In reply to:

racin06: I would prefer the Fuji X-T2 or XPro-2 paired with Fuji 35mm f/1.4.

My choice, Pentax K-1 plus FA 31/1.8 Limited - with $200 left, still 😁

In reply to:

The Davinator: Hmmm...for that price, I'd take the Fuji X-Pro2 and 18-55 and see little size difference...and a big image quality difference.

For just IQ increase, X-A3 or X-T20 plus 35/2 should be enough with plenty of $$$ to spend on the trip ;)

Link | Posted on Jan 26, 2017 at 14:50 UTC

For $3,200 I'm sure there are better choices - ultimate or not.

In reply to:

kewlguy: X-T20 makes more sense. Same IQ, half the price. The differences are just gimmicks.

Trolling LOL. I'm just being reasonable. Those gimmicks you mentioned are not worth *$800* alone. But I understand you are a fanboy...

Richard Murdey: I just realized: no top LCD.

I don't care what the price is or the features are. No top LCD, you sit at the kid's table. Your credentials as a top tier enthusiast dSLR are revoked.

they bother enough to make 3 grip sizes and massive VF hump - but omit the top LCD. that 1/6000s is a joke, too.
