  • $10/mo subscription and all they had to do was something about syncing presets ? It's no wonder.

  • He didn't say FE. Here's a link to the 235 E mount lenses on B&H.  There's some redundancy (18 Samyang are duplicated by Rokinon lenses) but it's easy enough to see what's on the list: https://www. ...
  • So you've listed something you like about the A6300, something you don't need about it, and are interested in moving to something else that can give you the same results, but lacks the thing ...
  • No, otherwise, I think Sony, Canon and Nikon would all have more competitive APS-C lens lineups.  Why offer consumers something good & cheap when you can entice them to buy more than they need ? - ...
  • I'd guess so, too, so maybe they'd be niche products that appeal to those who buy the higher end sports/wildlife oriented systems.  Though you could offset the cost a little bit if you avoid ...
  • I know that, in this thread, it's been argued that it shouldn't be the goal of smaller sensor systems to be equivalent to larger sensor systems.  But the lenses for the Nikon 1 system are ...
  • Mike Johnston's latest post: http://theonlinephotographer.typepad.com/the_online_photographer/2018/06/what-i-bought-egg-on-face.html After a couple posts about the IQ of the A7III and one about how ...
  • Tom - wisely said.  I've been shooting Nikon DX (an older D7000) and Sony e-mount and an RX100.  I recently bought an open box RX10-III because I decided that I don't like changing lenses when ...
  • The context I'm referring to is "I love Fuji because the Fuji 56/1.2 is a fraction of the size and price of the Canon 85/1.2".  The 56/1.2 may be sufficient for their needs, but then, an 85/1.2 is ...
  • Replied in 85/1.8 FE
    85/1.8 FE. A little shorter (equivalent), but very nice for candids (I use a Nikkor 85/1.8 on my APS-C DSLR). It's inexpensive, sharp, and with the same max aperture, it will be even slightly ...
  • That's it in a nutshell.  The neural networks in many people's brains are wired so that their eyes see the word "equivalence" and their brain interprets it as "full frame is better". To be fair, as ...
  • I have a somewhat contrary opinion in this regard.  I think we're PAST the point where smaller sensors are so good that FF won't matter as much.  As you've said, phones are good enough for most.  ...
  • I think that you can argue that the difference in FOV between short FL gaps at the wide end is more significant than it is with longer lenses.  That's not to say that going from 50 to 70 isn't ...
  • Thanks d3x :)  Mike Johnston over at theonlinephotographer posted something recently that got me on this train of thought - he's been a fan of Panasonic m43 (and even wrote about how there's ...
  • Ouch !  Sorry to hear that. Would another A77II be even cheaper ?  I don't know that much about the newest A mount bodies - I got out around the time the original A77 came out, but is it deficient ...
  • Exactly.  FF is a standard in the communal mind.  Because it's the same size as 35mm which is what most people used for a good long time before digital.  And when digital came along, we all had to ...
  • For those reasons, I'd say it's more a practical successor than a spiritual successor :)  (The RX10-I & II are probably closer to the spiritual successors of the 'A' models, to the extent the ...
  • I made the same mistake. And then the OP went off on me claiming I was seeking validation ! He asks if anyone shares his interest, gets offended if you tell him why you don't, and then accuses ...
  • Time will tell ... In the past, when my daughter has had friends over for a pool party, I've relied on the AF tracking on my DSLR to shoot them jumping into the pool, etc.  Now I'm tempted to try ...
  • Replied in Vertical
    I wouldn't mind the lack of extra battery, but without control dials to change exposure settings and a button for back button focus, it would be worse than nothing for me. - Dennis -- Gallery at ...
