Guess Canon will offer Log profile and other features with the C version of the 1DX Mk.II... for a premium of course. Will Nikon do anything to get better video specs or will they wait until 2020?

Getty better get good money from the Olympics to pay this up.

Not quite sure of getting this phone... Is this really the current flagship? Sony should stay with a yearly cycle for their flagships... Less models is better in the long run.

ewelch: Where's that Canon 1200 f/5.6?

I think I'd rather carry an Olympus Pen-F with the 300 f/4 and the 1.4 converter. But seriously, I would so love to use this Canon gear for a couple weeks at the Olympics. But a friend of mine who used to be AP's go-to guy for the Olympics for two decades says it's not all fun and games. :-)

It all goes down to how many keepers you will get vs. the gear shown there. Quite sure on the same scenario, you will get more keepers with the Canon gear (at a higher price) than with the proposed Olympus set-up.

Rich Rosen: What I find interesting, is that even with all the hoopla about newspapers going to photographers using smart phones, even with the so called stampeding of mirrorless, Getty has chosen to use the "antiquated" DSLR as their primary "weapon." I'm sure that mirrorless and smart phones will make an appearance, but it the DSLR that will be doing the heavy lifting.

@Benarm: Last time I tried tracking an aircraft with my Sony a7II, it failed more than with my old Sony A850 (which is a DSLR from 2009). Hardly "just as good as a DSLR".

Rooru S: When is the SAL50F14Z vs SEL50F14Z comparison coming up? Or has Sony told you not to compare between A-mount and E-mount?

And why should I just take a look at MTF charts to consider hitting the pre-order button? Wouldn't it be better to have DPReview do a great article to see if A-mount glass is still relevant for Dual A-E mount users like me?

You can do a direct comparison of the 24-70/2.8, 70-200/2.8, 85/1.4 and now 50/1.4. Trust me, there is a ton of people out there still using their SAL2470Z and SAL2470Z2 on their E-mount cameras. A direct comparison between the A and E-mount versions could give you several hits on your website.

Yep, because none of the world largest reviewers in the world, including DxO and DPR, are conducting A vs E-mount comparison. Actually, I was surprised when DxO pulled a SEL2470GM comparison against Canon and Nikon SLR equivalents with no mention whatsoever of the A-Mount own SLR equivalent, the SAL2470Z2.

I believe, This is very critical since Sony is leaving A-mount users in the dust and direct comparisons between similar A and E mount lenses should provide a clear veredict if it is better to sell A-mount equipment and get E-mount instead.

I have a Sony a7Mk.2 and several G and CZ lenses but all of them are A-mount, including the SAL50F14Z. There are some benefits staying with A-mount lenses (like having a mechanical coupled MF ring for MF work or Video) vs E-mount Focus-by-wire lenses.. Or being able to compose without having the lens close the aperture even with Live-View Settings OFF.

Direct comparisons could tell us if we should sell our A-mount and hit the pre-order button

Rooru S: What can I say... China.

@technotic: Lately, I'm seeing lot of impressive things from the chinese industry. From copying cars without shame to attempting to get attention by doing crazy PR stuff.

It's China after all.

On article Sony delays 70-200mm GM lens until September (66 comments in total)

Best thing Sony should do is lower A-mount 70-200 F2.8 G SSM II price (around 2400USD MRSP) and sell the E-mount version for 3000USD.

If they leave both lenses at 3000USD, it will make no sense at all for the A-mount lens since the E-mount version is more complex and has OSS... Unless Sony is still greedy as hell and leave a-mount at 3000USD and E-mount for 3500USD.

Why are people hating him for ditching the a7Rm2? Like if you guys were the white house photographer earning thousand of dollars and knew which tool is the right one...

Now this was really interesting. Way to go DPR! More videos like these focusing in experiences and results instead of too much on specs.

Donald B: what is the point of a 28mm macro lens, the designer obviously has never shot macro before.

Would you say the same about Sony E 30mm f3.5 Macro?

On article Huawei clarifies Leica-involvement in P9 camera design (53 comments in total)

So at first, they made some statements saying like the camera is made only with chinese technology with no involvement from Leica (aside from giving thumbs up). And now they're saying they did almost everything in co-op.

Right...

TSeiler: I am sorry but a $5000 camera and a $15000 lens are not "regular photography equipment", that would be a cell phone camera.

By regular photography equipment he meant that you could buy it from any dedicated store. Some years ago, NASA used modified cameras "designed to be used in outer space" (because they didn't know if the cameras would survive or not, you know, you can't get a new replacement until you get back or someone sends a backup up there)

Rooru S: So it is not 'real time' live view at 8fps. Still a slideshow but with added blackout effects...too bad Sony had to simulate stuff for marketing BS.

Do you see how the pictures fades away in the same way a SLR would show with the mirror blackout? Obviously they're simulating the blackout and trying to make it look like an OVF.
