FOTONOTO: Manually switching between EFCS on/off according to SS is really annoying.
Sony should add a function which automatically turns EFCS off if SS goes above a limit.

It's an one-minute job but I guess they are not aware that this is an issue.

@pollup It's not that tricky. It would be something like: If aperture is wider than f/2 (or whatever) and shutter speed is faster than 1/1000 (or whatever), then switch to full mechanical shutter (switch EFCS off). And that could be under a menu item called something like EFCS auto switching.

MirrorLessHater: Fun fact :
Sony A-mount is two years older than Canon EF-mount.

Nikon F and Leica M mount are even older. And who cares?

MirrorLessHater: Sony E-mount is the most versatile mount ever created in the history of photography,
Hands down.

Oh yes ... Sony is 1,000 years ahead because a 100-year-old lens can be fitted to it with the help of an ancient screw-mount adapter and rubber bands.

Lisa Kiehls: #gettheshotatallcost

On another note, why are these toxic lakes open to the public?

Unfortunately, dumping poisons and creating toxic hazards is always more cost-effective, as long as the wrongdoers can avoid liability. And too often then can.

And on another note, why aren't toxic lakes prevented from happening in the first place? Why wasn't the mining company required to keep it pristine clean, or to perform a complete, permanent cleanup otherwise? That lakes get toxic is really atrocious. It's a sign of really bad government, and criminally bad citizenship on the part of the mine owners.

In reply to:

Horshack: I heard a rumor that XeroJay doesn't like EFCS.

Yep, EFCS is user error for wide aperture, fast shutter speed shots ... if that's what happened here. Of course, the cameras should have an option to address that automatically, without menu diving.

Alex Rathmann: Dear Sigma please make 50/85 1.2f lenses

Dear Sigma, please also make more compact f/1.8 or f/2.0 lenses. :)

Yes. That would make perfect sense.

Yake: Size & weight rules it out for me.

People are different. I can lift the lens, but don't want to carry such weight along with all of my other gear for weddings, etc. On my feet all day, I need lighter gear. Olympus designer Maitani understood this problem back in the 1970s.

Rob890: Not a Fuji in sight or Animal eye AF enabled cameras...how the heck did they do that!!! blows mind

But ... but ... but ... how did they deal with the 2-stop dynamic range and the severe banding of the ancient sensors?! What magic app was used to save these photos from otherwise certain failure?

(unknown member): Love how the 6D wins in the action category here, HMMMMMMM:

2019 Audubon Photography Awards Professional Winner

Species: Greater Sage-Grouse
Location: Pinedale, Wyoming
Camera: Canon EOS 6D with Canon 500mm EF f/4 L IS USM lens; 1/1500 second at f/5.6; ISO 800

Yep! That's pretty sweet. And that camera has been trashed over and over for autofocus, sensor, etc. It's the dinosaur camera that sent Canon to an early demise, or something like that.

Roland Karlsson: "after 8 seconds it dropped the fox" ?

I guess it was the other way around. After 8 seconds the fox dropped the rabbit.

Amazing photo!

Jozef M: Not a single image taken at f/8 where everything is sharp in the frame, from corner to corner, so we can evaluate this. How are we supposed to see if this lens is sharp???
Another dissapointing gallery from Dpreview ... there are so much complaints about these thoughtless series of photos, but Dpreview will not learn.

It's nice to see both wide open and stopped down, but every lens is sharp at f/8.

dansclic: You say this is a sharp lens at medium apertures . Well, ALL lenses are sharp at medium apertures. For me this lens is an averagely sharp lens. For landscapes, you say, well again if you can’t use it at f2 or 2,8 this lens can’t suit for landscapes because sometimes you need to shoot landscapes at f2.

No, it's sharp at all apertures.

thinksme: No weather-sealing... Frustrating. The one lens of the bunch releasd I would use and they can't even make it FULLY compatible with the camera they released it with? Useless!!

Useless? I'm finding it extremely useful.
