Apple make workers in Thailand jump from the factory roof to death after non stop shifts and improper salary.
they offer companies a deal they can't refuse to produce the parts and the processor and they have to say yest to whatever apple offers them otherwise they will lose a huge production line but the workers are the ones who pays in their life!
the most aggressive and destructive corporation in america

YA9Productions: A7rii seems better to me.
better lenses support and video capabilities.
this sensor is just a hype.

These "medium format" sensors are not truly medium format.
better dof can be achieved with FF. show me a good MF lens that have a creamy bokeh for under 5000$.

PPierre: Please Nikon, stop being ridiculous and release an F mount FF mirrorless camera. Stop making strange marketing decisions.

After investing in a lot of Nikon glass and gear, I can say that if they won't show up a FF mirror-less I'm going Sony all the way.
The continuous eye tracking focus just makes shooting portraits with a fast lens a breeze. I can be sure my shots will be sharp when I open them on the computer after a day of shoot. I cannot do that with my D810. it behave so badly and should be put in a museum for old technologies.

Today I was holding the 100t, x pro 2 and xt2 and I was really not impressed.
Too spoiled with my D810 and I really can't go back from the Full frame character.

However if those were third of the price I would grab one instantly.

Robert A: Anyone happen to notice that B&H hiked the price to $1,999? I've been exploring 6x7 quite a bit recently, but my leanings are toward the Mamiya 7 for the ability to change lenses. It'd be difficult to be locked into 80mm (42e) without any ability to go wider.

Bhphoto do this trick to all of thiere products.
People should be aware of thus phenomenon.
They bumb the regular price of most items a day before and then offer a "sale" With big promotion everywhere.
The lower price difference is maybe 1-2% price cut from the original price before they bump it up. So 20% discount is actually a ridiculous 1% discount.

On article Got Bokeh? DxO reviews the Nikkor AF-S 105mm F1.4E ED (140 comments in total)

For that price I'm getting the 85 1.8g, The 180 2.8 afd, the 300 f4 Afs with a teleconverter and still have 500$ to spare.
They cover everything I need and want and are much more natural in color rendition(for my eyes) and don't have that distracting cat eye bokeh and swirly bokeh that make me dizzy.
they are also better built and last for decades. And can be used with my bmcc camera and other systems with a single adapter. The new electronic controlled apparatur make it impossible.

On article Sigma releases price and availability for sd Quattro H (370 comments in total)

Coming from the dp1 and dp2 Merrill (true 3 full res rgb layers) it is not worth it.
I now using the d810 and the full frame look with a better bokeh lenses than sigma art line are much more pleasing.
It was a pain to carry 6 batteries for half day shoot and edit with sigma pp. it was and still is slow as hell and very limited.
White balance is always a headache and the tones were unnatural. However It is amazing for bw.
Other than pure resolution at base ISO there are only cons in every aspect.
I much better save for the Fuji mf system.

SaltLakeGuy: I read below of someone that had less than acceptable results with the Shadow and Highlights adjustments, which I also tend to use big time. So perhaps I'll take a pass and hope On1 fixes their program to work better with the X-T2

I know of C1, but ACR is more flexible and convenient.
Affinity Raw developer is like pushing a jpeg.
I was very surprised when using the beta.
never touched it since.

I do hope they will improve and be a major contest to adobe someday.

The raw developer is horrible with my Nikon cameras, I really hoped I could stop using adobe.

Having the Nikon 14-24 right now and I hate it.
there is a big field curvature problem and the colors and rendering is ugly as it can be.
I hope this or the new Samyang 14 2.4 will be the answer.

In all the official Nikon samples of this lens I noticed it immediately.
And I couldn't ignored it.

so let go off the small and excellent 85 and go with the 105?
the one thing I really don't like about both lenses is the cateye bokeh,
this is really destroying it for me.
does the 70-200 vr ii has this as well?

full frame D810
still can't decide between the 85 1.4g /105 1.4g or the 70-200 2.8G VR2.
for street photography, outdoor portraits and some indoor portraits.

Donnie G: This camera makes perfect sense for Fujifilm, and by making it multi format friendly, they won't have to develop a separate FF camera. Kills two birds with one cleverly crafted stone. :))

problem is the need to purchase a new set of lenses which won't be compatible with other system.
