mandm: Shooting for 50 years, I'm now a retired pro using a Nikon Df & D750, if I were starting today, I would likely go with Sony full frame and this lens is just one more reason why and Sony will have more lenses to come.

12-24mm @ 565g vs 14-24mm @ 1000g. I think he meant what he said.

pdxtrojan: Cool phenomenon, but that's a rather poorly balanced and composed image.

Okay...

Or the photographer, who could rotate his camera to the right a bit.

DoggoLingo's funny and catchy the same way pig Latin is. In other words, it's neither.

"And then it happened."

I had to read the text to figure out what exactly "it" was. Wasn't quite sure just from looking at the photos. :/

In reply to:

alberto_b: Not impressed - I also voted the image in the original challenge -, since it's heavily oversaturated.

You voted for this image twice, once here and again in the original challenge, even though it's oversaturated and you were not impressed?

Rob: Professional sites need to stop mispronouncing bokeh. It has always been "bo-KAY." "Bo-KA" was a mispronunciation by those who were ignorant of the term's origin and somehow it caught on.

You think Sony misprinted 135mm as 100mm five times in their own press release?

CanonKen: *picks jaw from floor* Not a single Sony!? Guess fanboys don't like voting in online polls.

Okay @davesurrey I already get that, but you probably already got that I was talking about total MP, not vertical and horizontal dimensions, so why persist? Just to be argumentative? Obviously the original OP was being tongue-in-cheek, and so was I in my replies, and so were you in yours...so now we have this silly tongue-in-cheek back-and-forth that's long past it's ability to amuse anyone (including myself) and serves no further purpose but to poke fun at so-called "fanboys", which, I suspect, was actually the larger intent of the OP.

I'm always equal parts amused and dismayed when people take the most loosely-connected (and sometimes not even that) opportunities to put down another set of people who might be labeled by some as fanboys. In so doing, they only reveal themselves as fanboys, too, and incredibly insecure ones at that. The one word I think best describes that practice is *pathetic*.

I shoot with an a7RII. It's not perfect, but for my needs I'm very happy with it, far happier than I would be had I stuck with my previous Canon line up. The D500 looks to be a magnificent tool, but not for my specific needs. People who tout its virtues cause me no consternation whatsoever, and I'm happy that they found a camera that suits their needs. They could be shooting Contax, Sigma, Samsung, Hasselblad, whatever...why should anyone else care but the people who own the equipment? What threat does me being happy with my Sony present to people who are happy with their Nikons or CanonKen ostensibly being happy with his Canon rig? Doesn't competition amongst the brands encourage further innovation, advancements, and competitive pricing?

So people can go on *insert camera brand here*-bashing to their heart's content. Doing so obviously fills some critical need for them...

42MP x 50% = 21MP, for the mathematically challenged.

@davesurrey, didn't take me long to customize the buttons to my liking. Now my only issue is whether to crop an exposure in half down to 21MP or just keep it as is... :)

Or maybe they just took year off to shoot with their a7RII's?

trulandphoto: The only useful advice should be to look at samples of their work. If you like it, hire them. If you don't, don't hire them. If you can't tell if it's good or not then it really doesn't matter does it.

Logic makes an appearance on the Internet. 8^0

Lol at all these folks taking shots at Sony totally out of context. Talk about some deep-rooted insecurities...!
