M1963: Well, surely those images look like sheet.

@c45
With a new high DR sensor, your pictures will instantly turn from sheet to masterpiece?

Richard Murdey: It's been a while and my memory on this is fuzzy, but wasn't the first TTL implementation of this concept demonstrated on the Olympus E-300?

@Richard Murdey
again, source. I look at dpreview page of E330 and I see dedicated small CCD for liveview but no hybrid viewfinder

jhinkey: Nice camera, but I wish they would:
- Keep the zoom range the same
- Make the 960 FPS imaging sharper - it's pretty soft
- Make the body quality a little better - it feels pretty "cheap", especially the flex in the tripod socket and the tilting scrren
- Allow it to resume back to the focus point and zoom setting after going into power save sleep mode (even when using the AC adapter). At least I can't find how to do this
- Image zoom function when trying to get critical focus while in video mode - can't seem to figure out how to do this w/o getting out of video mode, focus with image magnification, then go back into video mode

Not sure the big price bump is worth the increase in zoom range, but pretty much the same camera otherwise.

if you want same zoom range, rx100m2 is for you.

bluevellet: DPR should have shot with a m43 and APSC Emount camera.

Not too likely someone with a A7(RII) would buy this lens just to shoot in crop mode. There are native FF 50mm option on E mount.

@y Rishi Sanyal
Please show how the lens look in FF mode, how much extra it covers xD

In reply to:

Earth Art: The lens mount looks like a metal and plastic mix. The actual contact points looks like they are metal. I don't see any reason for concern here as long as the design manages to reduce weight.

Also, why does Sony insist on keeping the mirror in there? Either go traditional OVF or go mirrorless. The light loss and added flare complications are just not worth it any more.

SLT mirror is about 45 deg to optical path and therefore doesn't add any flare

Enginel: I'm a little afraid at this pace Pentax wouldn't finish the camera until after 2017. Maybe in January they will put pentaprism and eyepiece in mockup xD

42 mp FF sensor is the only sensor which doesn't suffer digital vignetting and colorshift.

wolfie: Interesting to see the positive enthusiasm for more size and weight as an advantage over mirrorless ...reminds me of how dinosaurs (dino-slrs) failed while pesty little mammals took over every niche they occupied. But hey if you want to persist with a viewing system that only existed because of film, your welcome to the size and weight penalty - which says nothing at all about about supposed better image quality.
I think between Ricoh & Pentax they could have done something unique in mirrorless, maybe in a few years 😣

@Richard Murdey
Sony has "succeeded" in making FE 35/1.4 strongly retrofocus and as large as a SLR lens.

@T3
Kolari mod is required for Sony cameras to work with M lenses properly, and only 42mp sensor handles rays as shallow angles well.
Newer DSLRs do face detection too.

I am afraid mirrorless cams have little benefit to offer except new Sony sensors. Sony made huge 35/1.4, Leica recently announced huge 35/1.4 (for aps-c only!!!)

On article What difference does it make? Sony uncompressed Raw (621 comments in total)
In reply to:

ozturert: So Sony still hasn't understood what customers want. Lossless compression should not be that difficult if Canikon can do that. Sony has all the electronics power in the world, why would they not do? Don't tell me "42MP is bla bla bla" because they do not do this even for their 24 and 36MP cameras!
But hey, this gives them room for progress for their next camera, right?

2 mick:
I own a Sonycamera NEX-5N and I'm afraid i'm not getting any updates. Also I want focus stacking and timelapse in-camera.

In reply to:

SFuller123: Laughing right now at anyone that bought an significantly inferior brand of camera becuase of such an insignificant difference in Sony raw compression.

Your camera choice is likely to have an affect 1000x more significant than this.

Lack of perspective.

D810 has better DR only at minimal ISO, at higher ISOs the Sony has better SNR&DR.

In reply to:

Nukunukoo: I repeat. Please add Lossless compression!

Who knows? There's simulated shutter sound on NEX-3N (which cannot be turned off) and A3000 doesn't allow to playback thru EVF, all done out of ignorance

It is amusing that Sony decided to emulate DSLR lack of PDAF at f/9 or smaller.

In reply to:

kty: Now the big question for video folks is:

SHALL I WAIT FOR THE "A7s II" OR NOT ?!

The difference is power consumption between a7s and a7r is minute.
With higher mp sensor you'll likely get sharper jpegs than converted raws from small mp sensor, or use less complicated raw processing, at least.
It's all due to software

BSI now finally hit FF sensors yet large pixel fa****ry continues.

Eleson: If all the images describing backlit sensor are correct and that they actually allow light to enter from higher angles, this sensor will for sure give new life to old analog lenses. -Looking forward to tests!

Nope. Old designs don't take sensor glass thickness into account.

On article Fujifilm announces XF 16-55mm F2.8 R LM WR lens (295 comments in total)
In reply to:

Miki Nemeth: Since I've seen the Sony X200 professional video camera where Fujifilm (not Zeiss nor Sony) made a brilliant lens for Sony, I am fully convinced that Fujifilm should make its lenses primarily with m43 and E-mount lenses. Fujifilm's X-mount camera line is a waste of effort. Fuji should do focus onto lenses where it is really great. Fuji X-line is just a nice try vs the giants like Panasonic, Sony, Canon. Both E-mount and m43 are open standards (unlike Canon); how great it would be if I could buy this lens on my Sony cameras.

They are anything but are not open standards, this is a marketing myth.
