Christopher Tanner: I'd like to think that my D750 is worth more than $500.00 No thanks Sony.

May be say "Sony 'trade up' program gets you the trade-in value, plus an additional $500 bonus towards a new a9" instead of "Sony 'trade up' program gets you $500 plus trade-in value towards a new a9"

gingerbaker: Ok... I'm going to say it.

Looking at these ISO 1600 shots, I realized it was just like looking at what I would expect to see on my screen from my current camera - Canon 5D (original) - after some PS work.

Pretty noisy, some loss of detail.

Not sure the tech has really moved on a whole lot in the past dozen years re IQ, at least from these examples, although I am sure the D5 focuses way better than my old 5D.

@gingerbaker you can download the raw files from this gallery and open up in photoshop to play with it.
i just did and noise is minimal.

i like the portrait taken by sony on the "lens character" page. With sigma, specular highlight in the bokeh is too bright and hence distracting.

otto k: When people complain about dpr testing exposure latitude and go on how nobody is really pushing 4 or 5 stops in post, they forget that that also applies to vignetting correction, which is incredible at almost 4 stops in corners with this lens. So, if your camera can tolerate 4 stops push - that's it, you are already at the limit. If it can tolerate 6 stops you have an extra two stops for shadows in corners, etc. If you can do only 3 stops - whoops...

Pretty heavy vignetting :( @ J A C S - I am surprised something that obvious could be missed

Dougbm_2: Very interesting article Rishi and co. Thanks!

I feel the bridge image could have been processed a bit more ... seems a bit flat.
See my version in my gallery…http://www.dpreview.com/galleries/9311784622/photos/3203776/rizalbridge-d810-v4-fullsize
What do you think?

@Rishi: looking forward to the D810 review

Rishi's version looks more realistic.

On article Lee releases pricing for SW150 Mk ll filter system (39 comments in total)
In reply to:

Papi61: "The holder itself will cost £150 including VAT, while lens adapter rings will be £93.60 (...) The price of filters starts at £68.32 for color grads, while the Big Stopper and Little Stopper filters are £132, and the Polarizer costs £180."

So, if I wanted a polarizer for my 14-24, it would cost me £424 (i.e. $655 US)

Wow...

No, you can get a polarizer plus holder for $269. Search for "WonderPana 145 Filter Adapter Kit with Circular Polarizing Filter". I use it and the quality is great.

Great work DPReview.
The sunstar test idea was brilliant, just what i needed to know. Those sample photos gave me a pretty good idea of:
i) wide open sharpness/bokeh/rendering when focused close.
ii) idea about performance at infinity (though i wish they were focused better)
iii) flare
iv) a peek at CA and corner sharpness
