  • good link! this is as clear and unbiased a comparison you can find. good to see! it also contradicts the dxomark nonsense. I love the rf, this shows me why I have my preferences very clearly.
  • I have both, and since I have the canon 1.2 I havent used the sigma once except for a quick comparison. The 1.2 is significantly sharper at 1.2 and 1.4, f stops higher up it's less dramatic. But ...
  • @random78, that is exactly what I meant, Panasonic by not having any depth data from phase detect needs extra processing to analyze extra pixeldata to determine blur characteristics. DPAF isn't...

  • As advanced as dfd is on the software level, it feels akin to an overengineerd brute force solution for which is simpler technology available. Why would you want to analyze so much pixeldata by...

  • Below is a journey of how Sony got me doubting my canon gear and send me on a round trip to the r5: When the a7rii came out I switched from the canon 5d2 (I skipped the 5d3). I loved having an evf ...
  • I'm in holland and I ordered hours before the official release from my small local camera shop (fotosipkes). I got it delivered as second on the list, a week after nr1. I've had it for 2 weeks ...
  • SteveAnderson - Yeah raw is not universally the same, just like a films chemical formula isn't, a sensor and it's processing path to the raw file just isn't. I have actually just sold my z7 and...

  • @NemanRa
    I did not, will have a look. thanks!
    I agree with your points on film, it was somewhat before my time and digital can make great use of available light in darker scenes it enables a style...

  • I get your point completely. Good to know I'm not the only one that sort of hyper sensitive to what looks natural. It must be. The color science is definitely different when I compare the fx9 to...

  • Steve: that's good example indeed. But those are 2 very different ways of building a screen. Sensor tech and processing is fairly similar for years now so in my opinion it's more like tuning a car...

  • Hahaha thanks for the semi funny passive aggressive comment instead of engaging in debate from which we could learn from each other points of view. Perception is a funny thing. It's also the main...

  • Specwise, and also this sample reel and other a7siii videos look to deliver on everything that it's supposed to do. Also the color science is different from the older Sony models. But all footage...

  • You would have to expose the sensor for a shorter amount of time or need less amplification to the signal to gain the same information because you don't loose the photons. Both situations create...

  • More (photon)data is more precision because the ratio of noise generated by the sensors electronics has less impact on the signal value. Therefore it's easier to distinguish real from false...

  • bsi sensors have larger light collection surface or less obstruction of the lights paths per pixel which can result in better light gathering abilities and thus less noise and better distinction of...

  • It looks contrasty, but it's the jpegs, I just opened some of the raws, I am very pleased. The shadows are very clean and from what I see, color sensitivity also got a boost. Overall resulting in...

  • yeah that's true, made the same double Megapixel comment in another thread and instantly made some enemies. :P I think Canon has done really well to match DR to Sony even with split pixels for dual...

  • This used to be true. I'm not so sure it really is anymore. We will have to wait for the independent DR reviews. There's a good chance it will be a negligible difference if any. Keeping in mind the...

  • great!! hope it helps. yeah I think rendering on the 1.2 is better, but it's marginal, when the R5 arrives I will have to do a side by side to see how much of a difference there really is. For ...
  • I shoot mostly studio work. I shoot people for promotional posters and billboards for the cultural sector. I own a Eos r, a Nikon z7, a 5div before that and the studio I rent has a 5dsr available ...
