On article Sony a9: more speed, less dynamic range (666 comments in total)
In reply to:

bilcobarnes21: Am I the only one getting a little tired of DP Reviews obsession with the A9 and Sony in general?
It makes me wonder what involvemt Sony have with DPR 🤔

Maybe DPreview can make a vintage series where they look back at gear nikon and canon has not upgraded.

User9362470513: Great, I was going into Sony A9 cold turkey, so I needed this fix. Hopefully this can be dragged out a bit longer.

Why is DPreview ignoring all the fresh ground breaking/revolutionary models from Canon and Nikon?!?

Bambi24: Sony engineer: "we can put 4k in our cameras, but they will overheat"

-Sony marketing: "Our audience doesn't care, they just care about large numbers and specs"

Sony engineer: "it will have horrible rolling shutter at 4k too"

-Sony marketing: "Just tell some Sony Artisan on Youtube to shoot an attractive young model in 4k, they won't notice. How are the other specs coming along?"

Sony engineer: "we have an experimental 20fps fully electronic shutter but it has problems with fluorescent light and ISO peformance is subpar and the buffer can't handl..."

-Sony marketing: "Put it all in, our audience only cares about s..."

Sony engineer: "specs, right,...I'm getting the hang of this"

Canon/Nikon Engineer: ... silence
Canon/Nikon Marketing: What happened to our engineering team?
Canon/Nikon Marketing Mark II: We fired them back in 2008
Canon/Nikon Marketing: What? How will we come out with competitive products?
Canon/Nikon Marketing Mark II: They left a few notes in wordpad, we can just use those and re-release the same models with small changes. Our customers like bambi24 are so loyal they will never notice.
Canon/Nikon Marketing: Are they that dumb?
Canon/Nikon Marketing Mark II: I guess, they keep buying our stuff.
Canon/Nikon Marketing: Ohh, that is why we have a big "Milk them dry" banner in the break room. NICE!

noflashplease: Wow? A 5 FPS mechanical shutter? For $4,500?

How about "wow, why would I even use a mechanical blurring shutter anymore?" Aside from artificial lighting, not many reasons to have one with this kind of sensor.

Seems like it has no mechanical shutter at all. Did I miss something ?

On article Zeiss formally announces Batis 135mm F2.8 (182 comments in total)

Its a very high price but as long as hair and other high contrast edges do not have that "color bokeh" it may be worth the money.

SHood: Just to give some perspective, the UHS-II standard was announced in January 2011 to support 312mb/s.

https://www.engadget.com/2011/01/05/sd-association-triples-sdhc-and-sdxc-speeds-with-uhs-ii-standard/

6 years later the fastest cameras (E-M1ii and D500) can support 163mb/s. That would suggest in 6 year from now (2023) the faster cameras would be able to support ~300mb/s.

It seems like we are going at a snails pace in supporting new SD standards

The weak link may have been memory modules/cost and not the bus. 4k and 8k video will be a good push for everyone to dump UHS-1

In reply to:

cosinaphile: the dirty secret of apd lenses , is the fact that they make a fast lens slow ... they really sacrificed light gathering for bokeh that looks artificially manipulated because IT IS manipulated ,,, ill take a normal prime with respectable bokeh and true speed any day

its why i chose the 56mm 1.2 fuji over apd which was really 1.7

So in opinion any stopping down of an aperture is "manipulation" of an image. Also, maybe it's a secret to you but Sony has it written on the lens it's T5.6 but here is a dirty secret for you...how about not having to use or buy a ND filter...ohh boy..cat is out of the bag now!

Fujica: Unbelievable that so many people seem to be happy about this lens!

Please take another look folks!
This lens suffers from chromatic abberation a lot.
Open up the above shown image at 100%. Then look at that signpost
Horrible purple fringing and then look left and next to those trees there is large green fringing to be seen.

This lens sucks imho!

Not worth calling it to be part of the Sigma 'Art' line.

Would it be because native lenses get corrected in camera and sigma does not?

I heard the battery was too large and it did not allow area for normal expansion and could be punctured by metal divider above battery in certain situations. Some speculate the rush to release the product due to competition (iphone 7 launching a month or two later).

Does it have a global shutter?
