Absolutic: Dpreview team: did you ask Sony how they will address af of screwdriven (yet excellent lenses) like Sonyzeiss 135/1.8, 85 1.4, Minolta 85 1.4G, Minolta Beercan? Back to lightloss LA-EA4 with its limiting AF??? or they are going to release LA-EA5 which would be just like LA-EA3 with screwdriver for motorless lenses???? 135/1.8 is Sony's Benchmark and Bragging rights lens, I cannot believe they are not going to address it. And question 2) A7s is rated at EV-4 sensitivity, A7M2 is rated at EV-1, what is A7RM2 rating?

Screw drive lenses should go the way of the dinosaur along with Nikon and Canon OVF cameras.

Probably could have included the sony f707 in there just for the unusual form factor and laser focusing technology, which was ground breaking.

Nice article. I have DXO Optics Pro 8 and Lightroom 4, and use DXO mainly for individual edits, and Lightroom for large volume file edits. Very nice review agree with most of the comparison information. If i cant get something right in one, I can usually switch over and get the results I seek.

d2f: I wonder how the old school Samyang lens will compare to the Sigma 8-16 lens. Since the Sigma has AF, supports a electronic interface and has a zoom range that provides another level of control. I know it produces great images since I own one. Given that current DSLR cameras have high sensitivity and the depth of field of a wide angle lens is significant is there is any real need for a 2.8 lens? It is my opinion that current DSLR cameras are fairly difficult to focus manually, since their focusing screens are not optimized for manual focusing, unless there is a focus confirmation, which appears to be missing on this lens, with maybe the exception of the Nikon mount. Also this lens does not appear to have a old school depth of field scale on the lens barrel, which may limit its usefulness when it is needed.

Try the focus peaking on Sony SLTs. will sing with this lens.

Dave Oddie: Sony A77 review:

"However, the somewhat mushy JPEG image quality, high noise levels and slightly laggy operation stop the A77 from getting a gold award. "

Silver award.

EOS 5 D MkIII conclusion:

"Destructive noise reduction results in mushy JPEGs, even at base ISO"

Gold award.

Show some consistency DPR or lose credibility.

Laggy operations resolved in Firmware 1.05

v11f: How can you know when buying a new camera if it has the new software (before buying it ...) ?

You cannot know, but it is simple to upgrade.

Just updated my a77 and everything operates faster. still. was happy with the speed before so its a bonus. Some adjustment to flash and also ISO at 3200 and 6400 in jpeg mode would be a nice round off. Also make some of the other buttons customisable like the ? button, which is more or less not being used for anything at the moment.

This is the best most fun camera I have ever owned, but a few refinements more and it will be just absolutely amazing.
