On article Week in Review: Sony FTW (302 comments in total)
In reply to:

oselimg: I don't think that Sony hopes to sell this camera with bucketloads. This to me is more like a PR exercise by the company saying that "we can do it" therefore establishing themselves in the mirrorless market while the others will try to catch-up. I don't think full frame mirrorless is ready to take over the pro market yet though we mustn't overlook the advantages of being there before everybody else and stealing the headlines. Being there first never paid off for the mighty Kodak but Sony in my opinion have established formidable technological base to challenge Canon and Nikon. It will be interesting to see how the established brands will react to mirrorless advance. This is just my humble observation neither an effort to bash or hype any brand. If you must please respond with your opinions and/or your observations even speculations rather than adolescent trolls.

@kodakchromeguy...I give Kodak all the credit they deserve for the wonderful films they'd produced in the past and I consider myself lucky/privileged to have shot with both Kodakchrome and Ektachrome slide films. I hope someday there will be a "Kodakchrome" preset filter in most cameras. Fuji in their cameras have the Velvia filter which was another wonderful slide film from not so distant past.

nananananana: I like people comparing a $125 lens to $1000 sigma lenses and saying it's not as good. You want a cookie for that conclusion or something?

For the money, it's probably one of the best lenses you can buy. The only thing I find is that the bokeh looks smeary instead of clean, but that's more a personal opinion. This lens will sell like (pan) hotcakes.

@kewlguy...You are absolutely right. If one can't use this lens will have to learn about photography beyond the numbers.

It seems like most people who comment here drive a RollsRoyce to work, eat at Michelin 5 star organic food restaurants, live in a mansion, earn over 800K pa therefore have no tolerance for one of the best value for money lenses. There are ways of overcoming this lens' bokeh behaviour. It gives fantastic looking landscapes with great colour rendering from f5.6 onwards for example or take a large aperture portrait with blank or with not so busy backgrounds. Is photography only for Zeiss, Leica, Canon L snobs?

oselimg: The usual numbers worshiping geek whining. Sometimes an effect we overlook or a different look in a photograph makes all the difference and make a lot of money for the artist and stand out from the crowd. If this effect isn't for you why do you feel compelled to make a comment or bash it? Someone with more imagination than you have can make a use of these lenses.

To all who've written comments to this post and with due respect...What I meant by "numbers worshiping geek whining" was that a lot of people get too much in to numbers race ie; pixel count, my camera's DR is 0,5step better than yours, X times fps etc. I think there is more to photography than just values expressed in technical areas. Perhaps it's my fault not having made clear what I meant. I did not intend to make any reference to the price of these lenses.

nicolaiecostel: From the pictures I get that you absolutely need to nail exposure. The second picture is 2.3 stops pushed up from ISO 100 and looks like ISO6400. The DR of the portraits is bad, skin almost washed out. Canon sensor tech is years behind everyone.

@Samuel Spencer...Then it begs the question why you take pictures under such conditions knowing that it will not be true representation of the camera. Unless you have an ulterior motive

Can this update clear the stardust on Canon 750/760D sensors?

If Nikon could do it, Canon can do better.

Will Dpreview review it? Does it give pleasing skin tones on Martians etc.?

Sergey Borachev: These prices just ensure that most people continue to go to M43. I really doubt how much better quality, if any, you can get out of this Zeiss 16-50mm than the smaller, lighter and much cheaper Panasonic 12-35mm or Olympus 12-40mm

Yeah, thanks, I can stop looking at Sony cameras from now on, since they are still making good quality lenses only at such prices. So long!

It's incredible that people who have no idea about the infant basics of physics compare a 35mm sensor/lens combination to mft sensor/lens combination. Probably because they only can count pixels in the correct order and can't do it backwards either :-))))

I didn't know Dpreview was followed by freelance scientists. They are swarming allover the place.

On article Samsung NX1 Review (1256 comments in total)

So, Dpreview doesn't rate cameras on the basis of image quality since NX1 is awarded gold. Or Do you have "different" criteria for each brand? Perhaps Samsung now is a huge company to ignore.

For as far as I remember, with each new Canon model there are so many people here filed Canon for bankrupcy. I'm glad non of these idiots are managing Canon.

tkbslc: Wow, that D7200 looks good even up to ISO 12800! Barely any difference between it and the Canon 6D.

tkbslc must have had his/her Nikon glasses on while comparing cameras.

Happy Jones: Nikon now has 2 APS-C cameras that best some current FF cameras in the studio scenes (NX1 is very close too). DP Review has done a superb job showing us comparable images instead of numbers. Numbers don't show us noise patterns, banding, or poor color casting, which for me means the DPR comparisons are more useful.

Would you care to name those full frame cameras that D7200 bests please.

oselimg: The trend in photographic gear development indicates towards subsidence of APC size DSLRs. I think the future will be shared between 4/3 sensor mirrorless cameras for size/weight reasons and 35mm DSLRs for obvious reasons which I won't go in to. Though I think we'll see more and more 35mm mirrorless machinery too.

I didn't think you would reveal yourself so quickly. You must be a sad person that the only authority you are able to practice is in a virtual world.

It's amazing that how some people are not able to reply to a non aggressive comment without regressing to their troublesome adolescent years.
