On article The Sony a9 is a 24MP sports-shooting powerhouse (1801 comments in total)

somehow it would be more useful to release it with a 400/2.8 lens if the pro crowd is the target. Not many sports pros will be turning their heads without them fast primes...
Anyway, the camera looks amazing, even the size doesnt look much larger that the A7 series, I wonder about the weight...

Photo_AK: Give me a wake up call when they start making f/1.4 lenses for MF. In the meantime I'll keep enjoying my D810 with 20/1.8, 35/1.4, 58/1.4 and 105/1.4 lenses.

you should use the waiting time for a lot of gym sessions...MF 1.4 lenses will be massive :)

Im not sure if it was soo wise from fuji to skip FF world. I dont think its saturated at all, especially the mirrorless portion, which is practically a one man show by sony without any real competitor (sorry leica...)
Might it be that sony just said "we wont sell you any FF sensors if you enter the field" to fuji? just wondering ...

Mateus1: Quite boring rendering including bokeh... If I did wedings like in the past, I would take in a second old 5D (mk1) with 85/1.8 instead of this Sony combo that has no soul and any magic in the images. But 5D with 35/1.4L was best combo ever bringing beautiful images! 85/1.8 is also great. But this files are just uninspiring... certainly because of the lens...

such a shame that you wont show us some of your soulful, inspiring and beautiful images you took with the canon, so we could have something to compare with... Funny how the biggest critics never have a website or at least a single photo shared :)

josseee: so what is the crop factor compared to FF? 1.26? Not that amazing I must say...
Can it be applied to DOF calculation?
If so, the 63/2.8 equals to 50/2.2
size of the lens: 84.0 x 71.0mm, 405 grams...quite big and heavy for a 50/2.2 if you ask me.
If I compare it to the sony 55/1.8...... 64.4 x 70.5, 280g

just wanted to point this out...
...somehow I dont get all the fuss around this new system...you get worse DOF control with larger size/weight.

marike6: The Zeiss Otus and Milvus 85mm lenses, and those from Canikon just got their clock's cleaned by Sigma's optical engineers (again) as the Sigma 85 f/1.4 DG HSM Art is the new king of the 85mm portraits.

@marike nope, no insults from you what so ever..calling somebody a fanboy (aka a blinded, fanatic worshipper of a brand) is actually a compliment, right? ;)
The bokeh of this lens is generally very plain, a hash example can be seen in image #13... deal with it (like you say)

OMG...you such a twister :D

quoting you:
"The 85 Art looks OK, just OK." Dude, you are delusional. The Sigma 85mm f/1.4 Art is one of the very best portrait lenses, and it's one of the sharpest, most optically perfect lenses that Lenstip has ever tested. Stop being such a Sony fanboy and let it go. You lost this round, end of story"

you called him delusional and a fanboy in one single post....but nooo, youre the polite guy, not using insults what so ever :D

+you still dont get what we are trying to tell you: there are non-measurable qualities to a lens which cant be rated by a lenstip article chart....

@Marike,just for the record: youre the one who started with insults calling Damian "delusional fanboy" as he tried to explain to you that theres more to lens than sharpness.
AND we were not talking about resolution, we were talking about your statement of sigma being the "king of all 85s". Youre the one twisting it all towards sharpness. Were just trying to explain to you that theres more to lens than resolution...but...well...whatever....hail the sigma king!!! :D :D :D

@DamianFI, why do you still bother. Its like talking to a brickwall (or photographing one, merike looks like a brickwall photographer, if you know what I mean). This guy needs some sort of numbers to tell him what is the best lens. Rendering? Forget about that..thats irrelevant for merike! Only thing that matters is sharpness! Because all his customers are viewing the final photo 100% zoomed, counting eyelashes :D :D

@marike6
where exactly do you see a head-to-head comparison to the GM in the lenstip article? There is no mention of the sony lens in the review...
...anyway, you still didnt explain the "king of 85" statement. Is it based on the lenstip article? Cause I dont see anything "kingish" in these samples..only harsh bokeh....

honestly, Im not very thrilled by these samples(especially by their bokeh).... please explain what makes this lens the "king of 85"?

josseee: Looks amazing...except for MS going for the DCI-P3 instead of the adobeRGB. bummer...

adobe=photography DCI=cinema. That it...
What do you mean by not white enough. Its just different compared to DCI. Adobe has richer greens, DCI reds http://www.electronicproducts.com/uploadedImages/Optoelectronics/Displays/fapo_3M01_may2013-LoRes.png

AksCT: Any info/guesstimate as how many RX1RI sony sold?

enough to decide to go for version II ;)

In reply to:

zlatko: The 24-70/2.8 is heavier than Canon's excellent 24-70/2.8 version II. And the 85/1.4 is heavier than Sigma's or Nikon's 85/1.4.

Zlatko, why did you leave nikon 24-70/2.8 II out of the comparison? :)
