On article Photo gallery: The Sony FE 24mm F1.4GM goes to Sedona (167 comments in total)

I don't know if i'd call this lens "compact." The FE 28mm is compact.

That's like saying the Nissan Armada is compact because it's smaller than the Tahoe and Expedition.

Wezre: There doesn't seem to be a gallery included, only the DPR TV video.

Sample gallery is there when you click on the lens link.

Neez: What we need is an online consignment shop. You send the gear to a facility, they inspect it and take pictures. You set the price and buyerpays the consignment. They take 10% and give you 90%.

Yea, but that's probably for clothing and things like that. When your talking about a $2000 camera, $400 is a bit much to ask for 10 minutes worth of work, inspecting it, tagging it and putting it on a shelf until it sells, then boxing and shipping it out.

This patent has nothing to do with what apple is doing with dual cameras. I don't think it violates it at all.

Brendan R: Looks decent but, where are the high ISO images? It's hard to compare without those. Also, not sure if it's the lenses, but samples don't seem nearly as sharp as the Z7. Oh Canon, how I was waiting for your MLC to come blow everyone else out of the water, but guess I'll be getting that A7II after all...

Yea, the IBIS in the A7II does work, but is nothing I would use for professional work. Basically just good enough for home movies, you still need to use a real gimbal for anything professional quality. I shoot sony s-log and the color is great once you post process. Sony S-log likes you to shoot a little brighter and pull down. Now direct out of camera color is something canon and panasonic do better for video.

I upgraded from a canon 6D to the A7II a long time ago, never looked back. If you only shoot images though, the A7II is not much of an upgrade over the 6D. You'll hardly notice it.

You may want to just wait and buy the A7III when those are used.

I have an A7II, it's a great camera but if you want High ISO, you should get the A7III. The high iso images on the A7III are much cleaner, the A7II has much more chroma noise past ISO 6400.

xyxyxyxyxy: Nikon Z just starts its journey to the shops and the sony fanboys are already crying. Funny.

I don't understand why they would cry?? They already own their cameras and likely already sold their old non-compatible lenses. The sony mirrorless system still offers advantages over the nikon system. I really see no reason to "upgrade" to the Nikon Z6. I don't see how it's superior in any ways. It just allows people that are already nikon owners to use their existing glass. Also, some people are noting issues with nikon's focus system thus far, there's no determination as to if this will be fixed in firmware with reviewer noting "keep in mind this is beta firmware." But no one saying it'll be improved at launch. The sony A7III and A7Riii still have a superior focus system, with eye AF and 2 card slots for those that care about it.

@DPFranz So out of nowhere, Nikon was able to design a very advanced 45mp Back side illuminated sensor from scratch???? I think it's more of a customization rather than a full design.

@DPFranz They did it with a sony made sensor using sony on-sensor PDAF pixels which took them several generations to get right. It's not like Nikon designed the most important part by themselves. They piggybacked their AF system on top of years of effort by Sony.

JanMatthys: Sony is the better camera (for now) Nikon is the better ecosystem. The larger z mount will also allow for larger than FX sensors and super fast glass.

Theoretically yes, people are expecting <1.0 aperture lenses to be possible with the new Z mount. I think that's how Nikon plans to overtake sony in mirrorless, by offering better lenses in the long term. Professionals will go for the system with better glass.

Ignorance is bliss. Sony has been making camera's for years. They bought out Konica/Minolta and adopted their A-Mount Lenses, and have been making cameras with that mount for years before moving to mirrorless. They also manufactured all the image sensors for Nikon for quite a few years now. So I'm not sure why you say they aren't a real camera company?? Most of their modern profits comes from their image sensor department. Pretty much all the modern flagship smartphones use them, and all the good point and shoot cameras use their sensors. As well as all the Nikon's and Sony cameras. As far as pictures you see published on the internet, more than likely it was taken with a sony sensor.

Zvonimir Tosic: I cannot remember that any pro photographer with a pro SLR ever had two rolls of film loaded in the same camera at the same time.
But I am glad to see that many amateurs around here did exactly that.

@pedroMZ Or you can just buy a camera with dual slots, and buy 2 large memory cards and not have to worry about it.

Tom Holly: I am a canon user but this is so sweet that real mirrorless are starting to arrive. Look forward to the canon version

They already have the sensors for it with their dual pixel cmos in the canon 6D MKII working quite well in live-view mode.

Pooya Rastin: What you get with This camera compared to A7R III:

- Slightly more megapixels
- Vastly superior lens selection with nearly full functionality
- ISO 64 for superior Dynamic Range and medium format-like IQ
- losslessly compressed RAW
- Sharper LCD Screen
- more compatible accessories
- better implementation of touchscreen

So it seems to be the better choice for someone looking for medium format quality pictures. Specially commercial work, Studio work and landscape.
D850 is there, but Z7, because of in-sensor AF, has more accurate autofocus which is critical for this resolution and there's also the benefit of IBIS which is extremely helpful with such a huge resolution.
So If you don't like it, it is not for you. The price is also right compared to the D850 and medium format.

Using a camera in a studio with a model is one use case where eye-AF isn't totally necessary because you can take several shots until you're dialed in. But outdoors with people, like for a wedding and events, Eye-AF is a significant feature, to nail it the first time is something worth noting.

Also, we don't know how well older glass will work with on-sensor PDAF. In sony's case, they have several A-mount to E-mount adapters and not all lenses work that well without the LAEA4 adapter which has a prism focus system similar to an SLR. One of the reasons is that ultra-sonic focus might be too quick, whereas most mirrorless lenses use slower focusing motors like canon's STM line of lenses which are optimized for video focusing. So again, we have to wait until reviews are out, we shouldn't assume all that glass will work on mirrorless just as they do on Nikon DSLR bodies. Hope for the best, but be skeptical.

janist74: Why no eye-AF? I`m sure Nikon knows, that this is one of the biggest advantages of MILC over DSLRs. Maybe a FW update is planned already?

Yea, but if sony makes the sensor, it may be in their contract between each other to not allow the use of eye-AF on Nikon cameras.

With a roll of film, you only lose that roll, like 36 shots. When you lose a memory card, you lose the entire day!!!!

Auricom 007: I am hoping Nikon will roll out their Expeed 6 engine with improved color sciences. Include IBIS and doesn't overheat like some other brands out there.

Include Software updates also Nikon, go ahead add 8gigs of extra ram in those bodies Nikon

Sony's had overheat issues in the past, not sure if they do for their latest generation. But I remember when they starting rolling out 4K that they had a 30 minute time limit, and even then when using in high ambient temps outdoors or in direct sunlight, they would overheat and shut off while filming.

Also FYI, all my stuff is sony now. I'm a full convert, but I don't do much video, so the overheating time limits don't bother me.

ThatCamFan: So basicly a bunch of no name photographers or as they said "social media creators" *shivers in cringe* Are reading what Nikon told them to read: "It feels like a DSLR but its different" Wow what an amazing comment that has ZERO value just like the peoples credibility in this video.

"Social Media Creators" are also referred to as "Social Media Influencers", cringe....
