papajohnny: Unless you are into astro, what do you need this lens for?

@papajohnny

In that case, why bother asking the question?

Why not make your voices heard, speak NOW, start an online petition for DPR to change the title - or forever hold your peace. lol!

Says the guy who thinks he is not bias and possesses an utterly unbelievable callous capacity to insult people who he perceives as idiots - as if he is the only one with a brain.

What a meaningless rant, a waste of ink in the print era.

Vallkar: Sony only has mirrorless system while as Canon and Nikon are also producing dslr systems. Once Canon and Nikon get fully involved with mirrorless things may look different in next few years time.

Wrong logic.

StoneJack: I guess that Nikon's strategy was most accurate.
They did go straight to mid to high end FF, which are more profitable and didn't care about the sea of cheap APS-C M50 and Sony A6xxx likes, which is mostly the two companies sell, while Nikon mostly sells mid and high end Z6,7, now in second generation and now preparing to do high pro end (Z9).

After that, they will go for market share (Z30). This is most sensible strategy because they are not stuck with dead end Canon M, neither they have to care about aging APS-C cameras, for which they have only one Z50 which is moderately succesfull. But the main thing is margin, and margin are probably higher on high and mid end, where bulk of Nikon ML offerings are.

It is no wonder that Nikon will turn to profitability in just 1 year, after having written off the old DSLR production assests (usually written off as extraordinary losses, which the Youtube idiots Sony and Chelsea misunderstood as usually).

Cameras is a niche product for hobbyists and pros. This ^ ^

We are coming full circle, back in the days when good expensive cameras (not the Kodak Brownie type) are only in the hands of hobbyist and pros.

BackToNature1: What's really amazing is that Sony is still selling this. "No 4k" and literally the worst auto focus in FF land.

Sony Alpha a7 II Mirrorless Digital Camera (Body Only) $1,398.00 B&H

What's even more amazing, some folks are actually buying an a7ii while you can get this, a far better camera for not much more when it's on sale.

Sony Alpha a7 III Mirrorless Digital Camera (Body Only)

Same for those folks still buying the antiquated but still for sale as new a6000.

@BTN1
Yes, it's hard to believe, isn't it?
But then again you can say the same for practically all products in the marketplace. Like for example, why do people buy an IPhone in droves when Android phones have relatively more advanced features?
Amazing this so-called consumer behavior.

@Stone Jack

Of course I was just kidding when I said that you're TH in disguise.

Although I am a Sony user and obviously rooting for Sony, I wish only the best for Nikon.

I don't like a duopoly to lead the market, it's not a good idea. Besides, Nikon has probably the proudest and the most enviable legacy among the Japanese camera makers - with arguably the most loyal fan base. I honestly don't like Nikon to go under.

Just when everybody is writing off Nikon, Stone Jack's unbridled optimism wins the day. He might well be Thom Hogan in disguise.

StoneJack: The report didn't mention that Nikon managed to increase its share in mirrorless from 0 to 12% in just two years since 2018 without any cheap cameras (like M50 or A6000), all with pricey Z6 and Z7 (only one relatively cheap APS C camera Z50 which still costs more than 1000 usd), while maintaining leadership in DSLR behind Canon; and now Nikon is aiming for higher end with Z9 and probably very low end with Z30; this massively raises Nikon's profit margin, which in turn almost doubled its stock prices for last 4 months.

A pretty rosy picture for Nikon, indeed.
I'd like to have what Stone Jack is smoking.

Vladyslav Kosulin: LOL, Canon produced more than twice the number of cameras SONY built, but DP Review marketing department knows how to properly name their report. :-)

The transition from DSLR to Mirrorless is inevitable that is why the emphasis on the latter.

I wonder, where you one to poke fun years ago when the emphasis on sales is on DSLR compared to the Film cameras?

On article First impressions of the Sony 50mm F1.2 GM (341 comments in total)
In reply to:

(unknown member): The girl with the blue and white stars in the gallery has a lot of CA on the stars (CA is visible in other images as well). Focus breathing is also very very bad (so much for video or focus stacking), but somehow this has been downplayed here to a mere 2 lines of text in 1 of the slides out of all the slides of info. Had it been canikon, it would've been the headline for sure. It's clear that sony took some compromises and decided to add an extra aperture blade or two to distract everyone.

Some commenters only want to see things what they wanted to see, subjectively, and report them as such....and such is the power of imagination. Some also see things through the green eyes of envy.

On article Sony announces new ultra-fast FE 50mm F1.2 GM lens (547 comments in total)
In reply to:

callaesthetics: I remember the good ole days when it was mostly Nikon and Canon, the rivalry was there but it was fun rivalry. Every time a new product comes out, there's just something about a lot of Sony users, it's a whole new level of toxic.

Yup, the good ole days was when Canikon's rivalry was all their own.
But interestingly, this is what happened next.
Sony started to show up and both camps became threatened and begun to show belligerence to the new comer. Rivals before but united now as the fanboys flood Sony's fora and new product launches with jeer, sneer, sarcasm, disdain and malicious comments.
Sony loyalists fight back.
The rest is history.
Any questions?

RadPhoto: The most superior 50mm F1.2 lens is by far the Nikon Z S lens. The Canon and this Sony one are just OK. Good for their users to have though.

*by far*?

LOLLOLLOL

Back your claim dude!

misspiggy01: I'm excited about what nikon will be able to achieve with this technology.

*inconvenient truths* of @TRU according to @cbp???

Come on, they're more like half truths and convenient lies!

Also the SUV vs compact car analogy is way off the mark because BOTH of them have more or less same moving parts.

A far closer analogy is that of solid state drive (SSD) vs hard disc drive (HDD) of computers. The first one has less moving parts, akin to MILC.

Guess which one is more efficient, reliable AND faster?

"Also, virtually every pro is a DSLR or former DSLR user...so that's a pretty nice crowd to be in."

LOL! Logic tells us that this is a blanket statement that says *ALL* pros are either:
a) DSLR owners or
b) former DSLR user... in other words a MILC (mirrorless) user.

Another nonsense post coming from the beloved (by Sony haters) Mr. TRU.

WhoKnow: What is great about Sony?
It have a great long experience in many areas: audio, video, lcd screen and sensors, photo, optics and so on.
And this help to develop a nice high quality products and accesoires.

Canon, nikon, fujifilm does not have such a great experience in so many areas.

But, sometimes, more specific area is not a bad thing. When fujifilm make a camera and rode make a microphone for it, it is a good combination from two great companies.

If Sony will open internals of its hot shoe digital interface, when many companies could make a great accesoires for sony cameras. It is always nice to have less wires on the camery body, especially on a compact body with a tilted screen.

We get it that you're a Fuji fan but realize that:

1. Choice is good
2. This is Sony's effort for making accessories to its cameras
3. The discussion is for the products for what they're worth and not for your Fuji and Rode

*Damning with faint praise* is all you have offered

pollup: "The Alpha 1 is the first step towards the next decade" => I think he means that for all companies, not just Sony. Sony just set a new benchmark and set some new unseen features that will become standard in 2030 probably for all camera manufacturers. I think it will be the end of the mechanical shutters, either by having very fast sensor readout like the A1, or by having a global shutter.

@TRU

You have NO idea so please SHUT UP.

You think? Hahaha. You're so naive.
Better take your thinking cap elsewhere.
