Mssimo: First review: To sum things up, this new Loxia is mostly a stellar performer, from a technical point of view.
Though the f/2.4 max aperture might not turn heads at the pub, it is at least a fully usable f/2.4 in which aperture is used purely as a means of light gathering and depth of field control, not to control aberrations. And the Sonnar design certainly lives up to its sweet-bokeh reputation.
The Loxia 85 significantly outresolves my 42Mpix sensor and should be future-proofed for the next couple of generations of megapixel lunacy that manufacturers will inevitably inflict upon us in place of better handling. http://www.dearsusan.net/2016/09/15/zeiss-loxia-24-85-review/

That pre-release article with dozens of samples images has more credibility than you will ever have on here. Many users buy based on manufacture specs. I give due credit to the author for time, effort and knowledge it takes to put together such review. I also like to acknowledge Ziess and other manufacturers for letting real users get some time with the product vs only giving specs and charts.

DFPanno: Other then video and MF junkies I can't see why one would buy this over the Batis.

If you don't understand the design, its not lightly you will be interested in the lens. It has nothing to do with being manual focus.

Everythingis1: These Loxia lenses should be half the price they are asking.

As long as we are setting the price, I would like them included with happy meals.

Zeisschen: Wow, those specs come really close to my old NEX-7 from 2011. The dinosaur in the house awakens! 10-15 more years and Canons mirrorless can compete ;)

Unlike canon, sony will have more than one new lens in the next 3 years.

DXOmark score posted. Canon users will no longer spend hours on forums conspiring dxo's bias to everyone else but canon.

Apple says the screen and camera support P3 color space. I wonder what is the standard file format it uses.

MTF shows it may be optimized for 600mm end. Maybe tweaked optics?

Why not call the 9 people that have it on pre-order?

On article Canon EOS 5D Mark IV added to studio scene comparison (363 comments in total)

Looking good against 5 year old 36MP sensors from Nikon, Older than Hillary sensor technology from canon (5Dmk3) and much higher MP sensor from Sony. Its a fine camera and im happy canon at least seems to be catching up to 2012. On a side note, i have not really seen a huge IQ upgrade since 2012 for FF.

Does it work in a raid 5 config?

On article Samyang teases 'summer blockbuster' lens announcements (124 comments in total)

If you look at the pictures behind each lens, you get a clue what they are for. Also look at the hoods. I see two flower type hoods aka wide angle lenses. Bottom left looks ultra wide since its very short. Top right seems like a 85mm. I dont see any zooms. Some of them may be mirrorless. Bottom right may be a ultra fast lens f1.2 or 1.4 since they show a dark sky with stars behind it.

Looks like something used to remove a cars oil filter.

JurijTurnsek: Why not GM?

GM is more bokeh/artistic, zeiss is more about high contrast and sharpness. At least that is what sony said.

On article Samsung launches first removable UFS memory cards (177 comments in total)

Looking at the pins and shape of the card, the slots should be fully backwards compatible. I wonder if they will come out with a "full size aka SD UFS" card.
