OLED display would have been more useful for low light situations.

Would like to see it in action, theory sounds good but implementation is going to be important.

Interesting offerings.

Sony seems to be going wrong way with phones in last couple of releases, they are overpricing their devices for mediocre specs are best. I dont think €449 is "affordable" for a Snapdragon 650 based device by any stretch of imagination. No wonder Sony is losing money and market share faster than a constipated kid.

I wonder how this compares to the Nikon 200-500mm f/5.6

I have been seeing a lot of Nikon shooters use that lens for birding. I would like to know if any optical improvements has been made in this lens or its just an electronic update to their old design.

On article Tamron announces new 1.4X and 2X teleconverters (15 comments in total)

They should first release some telephoto primes for this TC.

Chaitanya S: extending barrel- dont understand why everyone except Nikon keeps using that old focusing design.

@brendon1000: I was referring to Nikon's AF-S 60mm f/2.8 Micro lens. thats a full frame 60mm lens with internal focus, weather sealing and silent focusing motor. It's unique as it's the only lens to offer those features in its class.

@Contra Mundum: I used to own Sigma 50mm f/2.8 Macro that used extending barrel design for focus. And due to to shorter focal length and extending barrel lighting the subject even at .5x Mag ratio was difficult as the barrel always got in the way. IF designs a little better in that aspect but still shorter focal lengths compared to longer lenses in terms of lighting.

Chaitanya S: Essentially a bad hybrid of Camranger and eyefi.

1DX Mk II doesnt come with wifi its $600 optional extra, so that camera can use it (via a SD to CF adaptor). also to a certain extent maybe users of 5d Mk III and 1Dx might have already settled for Camranger of Eye fi so those cameras are not worth investing resources in.

This adaptor only supports 7D mk 2 and 5D S/R. I never tried Eye-Fi but for transferring small sized jpegs for webupload it should be plenty fast. I never use wifi to transfer large files onto my cell phone at max 1920px is what I need for previews and webupload half of that are more than enough. Camranger sure is expensive but its more well rounded package and definitely well worth the price.

@Dr_Jon: Eye FI atleast has onboard storage to store photos and CamRanger is the wireless tethering tool(it still has some storage for taken photos). This Canon solution takes up a SD slot, doesnt have any memory to store photos, has limited compatibility and doesnt have support for focus stacking.

Thats an interesting way to use DPAF, and if it works it will be life saver for macro shooters like me who tend to misfocus or can save time taken for photos needed to create stack.

Chaitanya S: I hope tamron releases this lens for K-Mount. That system really needs some good macros right now.

try photographing small Bush frogs with those extending barrel lenses, also lighting is a pain in rear side with these older design macros. Af is a really useful for shooting butterflies who dont tend to sit for more than 4 secs in one place, another use of AF for me with Macro lenses has been taking habitat shots of birds and carnivores. This is just one of the examples

@Favorable Exponynt: The old version you speak of is Non USD and non IF lens. Same problem as the D-FA 100, it extendes as it focuses to close up distance and has noisy AF.

yeah, K systems needs few modern macros. D-FA 100 with its extending barrel is not useful at 1x distance. also that system lacks 180/200mm macro option.

virtualreality: Any macro-photographer should upgrade to mirrorless. Lots of benefits over DSLR. Easier to use, better focus, no mirror shake. Also you get access to the best (sony 90mm f/2.8) macro lens.

None of the mirrorless systems have a first party 5x Macro lens or have wide selection of Macros longer than 100mm or good choice of Macro lights or even radio controlled flash system.

I have been hearing a lot of complaints of Manfrotto products recently, if they are wasting money suing every other manufacturer I am sure that would take away resources from QC.
