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?

Batteries are not hardware? Samsung you are genius. lol

Its a samsung battery; they are trying to play the PR game for damage control reasons.

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?

Link | Posted on Jan 11, 2017 at 21:23 UTC as 33rd comment

Is it a true 200mm now? The last one was something like 126mm at close range.

In reply to:

Everythingis1: I'm starting to believe that either a lot of people who use this website are idiots, or there are just a huge amount of paid marketers constantly trash talking everything about their competitors on the most popular websites. It just doesn't make any sense for their to be so much non-nonsensical trash talk about freeking digital cameras.

It's perplexing, indeed? Sometimes you have to step back and look at why this and other websites are so successful. Recipe: 1:Review and test products 2:Add Scores 3:Compare to competition Result: success and lots of attention/clicks
To make it worse/better depending on how you look at it, you add forums and comments. DPreview is like this by design, and it is currently at the top of the hill because of it.

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.

In reply to:

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.
