On article Comparison Review: Sony FE 50mm F1.4 ZA vs 55mm F1.8 ZA (233 comments in total)
In reply to:

new boyz: I think the focus planes were not exactly the same(f1.7 vs f1.8). 50mm is sharper for nearer objects, while 55mm sharper halfway to infinity. And for the 50mm, the left half is sharper than the right side.. so maybe decentering or something.

Also while comparing at f2, I can clearly see an airplane(Air Force One?) on 50mm sample... the 55mm missed it. :)

Ha ha.. great minds think alike!

John van Stralen: Too big, too heavy and too expensive so I will pass on this one also like all the other 1.4 lenses, I will stick with the 35 mm 2.8 and 28mm 2.0, sorry but I did buy several Sony Full Frame cameras for lightweight so that's what I want and not the same heavy lenses as in my DSLR days.
Why not make an original A7R with only an upgraded mount and shutter, I still love the size and weight and I will stick to that with lightweight lenses also for the time being.

Maybe.. they reserved the lightweight segment for the rumored A9.

My soul cried as I look at those pictures...usual reaction is just a meh.

Cannon Bay picture is the best of all.

"a reminder that creativity and control don't necessarily require the fanciest equipment money can buy."

Yeah, because his equipment probably the fanciest in its time.

Miron09: for portrait I prefer MFT because bigger sensors reveal too much unwanted detail. like pimples. So unless you have a make up artist by your side, better stay away from MF/FF

In case you wasn't trolling, smaller sensor will produce "sharper" images(with all of those extra details) because of greater DoF.

See Nikon, Sony sensor is the best. Don't you ever dare using off-brand sensor! Haha...

In reply to:

OSDphoto: "However, while it performs well for its class, these numbers are only enough rank it 21st in DxO's overall sensor score chart"

How many of the top 20 are the same flippin' sensor?
Sony 42MP - A7R II, RX1RII
Sony 36MP - D800, D800E, D810, D810A, A7R
Sony 24MP - D600, D610, D750, A7, A7II, RX1R, RX1
PhaseOne 80MP
PhaseOne 65MP
Nikon 16MP - D4, D4s, Df

Wouldn't that make the 1DX-II number 7 in terms of sensor performance?

Maybe.. but how many unique sensors are out there? No 7 out of 10 is not so good position. Not attacking Canon, just putting thing into perspective.

In reply to:

alcaher: sensor scores comparison are great. Right now the latest canon offering are great and close to Sony and nikon. But the biggest news so far with 1dx2/d5/d500 is the Af performance

Why not Dpreview doing an article showing in the field comparisons between the 3 cameras regarding Af. wich one you consider the best in focus tracking, focus speed, etc

"..which one you consider the best in focus tracking, focus speed, etc"

And how are they going to evaluate that? By scientific measurement or by "feel"? Individual opinion often results in judgement bias. At least DxO measurement are done scientifically(I hope so).

jmey26: "The statement makes very clear that the problem is caused by SanDisk's cards, not by the camera. Canon says it may issue a firmware update in early July to address the problem."

Ok so if its not Canon's problem how come they seem to have a fix coming?

Because Canon "The Fixer" fixes other's problem? Next, they will issue firmware upgrade for Sony and Fuji. lol! No fix for incompatible Sigma lenses though. Strictly Canon only lenses please... haha.

Aasmund G: It's getting to the point where the best Canon mount body is a Sony, and the best sensibly priced lenses for Sony are Canons

Hahahaha... damn right.

magneto shot: rightname would be "C-medium format" or cropped medium format since that is what it is. its nowhere near the size of medium formats as reference in film days.

I thought medium format = any format larger than 35mm but smaller than large format?

justmeMN: A "'game changer"? Is it "magical" and "revolutionary" too? :-)

You think different.

lucinio: The first medium format digital mirrorless ? Maybe not to much bigger and too much more expensive than Leica SL ?

Shutter Locker: What really defines Flagship ??

A flagship is a vessel used by the commanding officer of a group of naval ships, reflecting the custom of its commander, characteristically a flag officer, flying a distinguishing flag.

Used more loosely, it is the lead ship in a fleet of vessels, typically the first, largest, fastest, most heavily armed, or best known.
