Match it to a D500 and you get the tool for the job!
Indoor sports photographers will be delighted!
I just bought the Nikkor 70.200 f2.8 VR2, damn...

a 75-150mm is enough for basketball sports...wider lenses are even used.

hope you're right at its a great lens for sports, usually a sigma focuses 0.8-2secs max, and accuracy is soso... cross our fingers!

Abu Mahendra: The problem with Sigma lenses is that AF is a crap-shoot. I used to own the 18-35/1.8 Art lens. Fantastic IQ, but AF was crap. This new lens will likely be the same, that is, fantastic IQ, great build quality,useful focal length and aperture ranges, exceedingly good value; all undone by unreliable and woefully inconsistent AF.

agree on that, same thing with my copy. most probably the same thing for this new lens. but still a very interesting lens indeed! compliments to sigma for still being unique. hope someday, they will improve the af accuracy out of the box.

hello richard and rishi! 98 out of the 153 af points are just focus assist points and only 55 are user selectable of which 35 are cross-type right?

wow, DFD will surely make the 100-400 focus faster and more accurate than it's predecessor... very tempting lens! hope it'll be released this year.

Rob: My Olympus E-M1 has eye-detection, but on the LCD screen there's only the option to draw a box around the face (when a face is detected), with no indication of which eye is being focused on. You do get to choose which eye to automatically focus on in the menu though, as well as set it to automatic so the closest eye is focused on.

My 5D Mark III has face detection in live view using Contrast Detection, but there's no face detection with Phase Detection, nor is there eye detection. I wonder if Mark IV will have comparable features as the latest Sony cameras.

well, that time will come to canon as well, someday.... hehe but already too late.

CBRWizzer: Great specs, no lenses. Next.

he may have only meant a few selection of native FE lenses versus current full frame bodies excluding adapted ones....

RJ Lemos: I think I'm going to take a rx100 for video features and fast street picture

yup, the slow mo feature is already very compelling but i'll take the rx10 mark2 instead for the price

njlarsen: I question the choice of lenses for this test. Short lenses are always going to be easier to track than long ones. When you get the actual samples for a real review, please make appropriate tests using a long lens (400 mm at least for a full frame). Don't do the easy part of telling us how it works with a standard lens -- all systems are perfect with that type of test.

Niels

400mm is too long for testing this type of camera, 70-200 is quite enough

Under The Sun: I love this company. The only thing that is preventing me to go all in is video.

if the rumors that the xpro2 will also use the sony a7000 sensor, then most likely video will be great, so then the xt2 will follow... but still a rumor, not that likely to abandon the xtrans sensor just like that.

Actually Sony just did what canikon could have done a long time ago but they are just so conservative and traditionalist, they have the technological know how but did not utilized it.

This should have been a 24-50 even though it will weigh approx 1.5kilos at least it will be more useful and versatile.

SushiEater: I really, really don't get it.
24-35mm is not a very useful range for almost anything while other lenses cover this range. F2 Why? No one will shoot sports in the darkness. I can use my Sigma 35mm F1.4 and just step back for wider coverage. It will not take much to step back. And for the static objects Tamron 24-70mm VC will give F1 with VC on.
Exercise in "we can do it" that is all it is.
What really hard to understand is that Sigma promised 3 years ago for a 5 year plan to upgrade all the lenses to be compatible with USB dock. And they are not going to do it. Shame!

kty: Now the big question for video folks is:

SHALL I WAIT FOR THE "A7s II" OR NOT ?!

Just wait for the A7sII if low light performance is your priority
