Mateus1: Is it possible to mount to SD Quattro H (with adapter) Zeiss manual lenses - Loxia, C/Y or Nikon/Leica monut? Any issues?

@zzzextreme
There are plenty nikon f to eos adapters on the market. Cheers

AFAIK the flange distance is the same as canon eos which means that all nikon, leica r and zeiss yashika lenses can be adapted no problem. Correct me if I'm wrong

So, to summarize this article, there is not a single FF camera that matches GFX in all three parameters. It looks like the price is quite justified then. I say this as a user of Nikon D810.

vadims: > 65mm moderate wide

65mm (50mm equiv) a "moderate wide"? Not "normal"??

@OlyPent

Only thing than a person must remember when shooting macro with AF is that changing focus changes magnification.

villagranvicent: I bet in a few hours this will be flooded with comments from some guys arguing the Leica SL is better.

@ LJ Eljot
Leica S sensor is different from X1D and 645Z. It is not manufactured by Sony and is 45x30mm (3:2).

aris14: Νon Adobe RGB color space..? I am really trying to figure out why Leica has omitted it...

If you shoot RAW color space in camera doesn't matter. This is just for jpegs.

Trued1: As a swede I was actually thinking about taking the step from a7rII to the ever so awesome X1D. But after this news that is NOT going to happen. Chinese Hasselblads NO way. Just like both Volvo and SAAB Cars taken over by chinese.........
Please find some SWEDISH investors for Hasselblad!

China is NOT a democracy it is a country who put opposition i labour camps and copies anything made and developed in the western world. last thing I saw was a copied Porsche Cayman. Apparently they have te guts and we should have the guts to refuse their products and apply pressure on "our" companies to pull out of the dictatorship.
I always look where a thing is made can I avoid any product from china I am pleased. Sony has some products still made in Japan and my MacPro is made in the US with pride.

I actually really like the new Volvos and plan to buy one. Never had one before.

In reply to:

Josh Leavitt: I'm okay with it as long as some of that cash infusion translates into more competitive pricing. $9k is a little steep for a small MF digital X1D when Sony and Canon full frames are already on equal resolution footing with the 50MP sensor for less than half the price. If DJI's cash can help Hassy shove the X1D into the mainstream full frame market in terms of marketing and price, then everyone wins.

New lenses go to 1/2000 on a leaf shutter which is a unique capability in an interchangeable lens system

obsolescence: No flash sync socket? That's an inconvenience I wouldn't have expected, especially given the leaf shutter that is advantageous for flash work.

@obsolescence
You know you have no TTL through PC-sync socket!?
Since I find TTL quite useful for shooting events.
So you put a speedlite on flash bracket and then connect it with a cable to PC-sync?

I don't think they are marketing it as a pro body but as an enthusiast body. Their pro bodies are the two H6D

You can sync through the hotshoe, no problem

George Veltchev: A glorious depth of field at f/1.4 ! I wish that Sigma builds a 200mm f/2 one day ! The Canon equivalent is horribly expensive !

I think expensive was regarding Canon 200 f2 and not the 85s.

Angrymagpie: Does anyone have a suggestion for a good third party dongle that covers all of our port needs (SD card, USB3, thunderbolt 2...etc). If there's a reliable one.. maybe this won't be such a pain.... (potential self-deception noted)

@angrymagpie
Nope, was just looking at it as a solution if I would upgrade to the new macbook pro.
My mid-2014 max-specked MB pro is running strong and this doesn't offer any real speed upgrades. If it had 32Mb of RAM it would be a different story. And then I would be looking at the 15" since the size is now only slightly larger than the old 13".
But at one point I will do it, probably in next generation.
You bought exactly those or some similar?

A lot of errors typing on the phone, so it's usb type a and not s

@Sam
I've bern through the all this with the loss of ethernet, firewire, upgradeable HDD which all mattered to me more than the loss of sd card reader (the reason might be that all my cameras are still CF 😜) so I don't find this different than before. For me, the greater loss is the usb type s port since most of my peripherals connect that way. But the usb-c is the way forward so it is as it is

In reply to:

triplejaydee: How is the Sigma 8-16mm not the world's widest rectilinear zoom?

Sigma 8-16 covers only APS-C and in full frame terms equals 12-24, so I think they share the optical formula (at least with the older 'non-Art' lens)

Emadn13: f1.4 sample portraits are too shallow in my opinion,with this price range a 135mm f1.8 would be better reasonable shallow depth with same bokeh
but this lens is so good for low light,you could take some lowlight shots

@DamianFL
And yet I shoot portraits and hotel interiors professionally and rarely use a lens wide open, as do most of the people who shoot those two things. The are more sides to photography than just events.

And in the studio I will use my Nikkor 85 1.4 since I love it's rendering even at f/8 and compared to Nikon 70-200 2.8 it's certainly lighter. But I do have an f/1.4 lens because there are rare situations for which I need a fast 85. And it's quite as sharp and contrasty as the 85 1.8 when stopped down.

If you have a quality fast prime, it will be really sharp stopped down. I take the example of old Nikkor 50 1.2 Ai-S which when stopped down was sharper that the 1.4 and 1.8 versions.

#stopdownasneeded is also good

Not only good but usually preferred by your customers. :)

No, it's like having a Ferrari and then slowing down before a corner instead of running of the road ;)

Cariboou: Here Canada price of 70-200 Sony 3.599$ Nikon 2.699$

Not really a useful comment, since neither will Sony work on Nikon. And there are far more Nikons out there. The point is that this lens costs 50% more than Nikon and Canon equivalents, and the Canon especially is considered one of the best lenses in their whole system. So, Sony should be really doing something unique to explain the price hike. But in the end the market will pass it's judgement and discern winners from losers.
