Sacher Khoudari: Serious questions: How many sensor plants does Sony have? How big is/was the market share of the sensors made in this plant?

It sounds a little bit like the complete sensor production on earth was stuck due to this earthquake, which I don't believe.

Ez. This is just an Alternative Fact, made in Japan. :--)

Jonathan Lee: Today is Thanksgiving in the US. I like to thank DP review staff for their awesome job. There are so many interesting things coming up and you guys work tirelessly to tinker what works best for most of us. Thank you.

Thank you Ricoh for the K1. It is a machine one have waited since the turn of the century. It comes with a lengthy innovative feature set and a price point that is affordable and after the company changing multiple hands.

On the note of innovation, I was wondering if the cam itself becoming more of a post processing tool, rather than relying on ACR or etc. Since you guys know how best to interpret the image taken with the cam and the CPU, memory, & disk are already in the package along with sophisticated image processing algorithm.

The idea is de-coupling of your RAW from a 3rd party software on a desktop platform. The NEG file will be kept, a photographer , however, doesn't have to wait on Adobe and etc to get their driver correct to process the file.

(continue)

The most common Post Processing are, which could be done after connecting between the cam and a larger monitor or tablet, with a USB tick charging the cam:
creating a backup copy of the file about to be monkey with
change color temp, tint, exposure, contrast
change highlight, shadows, white, black
change clarity, vibrant, saturation
change sharpening and noise reduction.
change perspective and lens correction.
add graduated ND filters of different level of brightness.

I can't do as much portrait work w/ the cam dials; but, I think once this brave new movement has started, there will be unlimited talents sprarking new ideas.

Happy thanksgiving!

Would anyone happen to know electronic ND filter is built in to this cam or not.

As lenses are getting super size, getting filters to fit different lenses is hard.

I use cokin/lee system. Still, mordenizing the cam to have one fewer thing to pack is god sent :-)

... just thought of an idea. What if the lens adapter to the mirrorless cam has an opening for a 'standardized' filter. It is kind of like the filter slot for the super tele. In this case, that slot is fixed to one super tele.

Advantage of the opening slot on lense adapter is thst one standard filter diameter for all lenses attached to it. This allows the same filter to reuse across all lenses. (c) 2016 Me.

Sorry if everyone will booooooo me for sticking out saying this, the emphasis is "corner to corner" sharpness.

There are lens that is sharper in the middle and sharpness fall off quickly toward the corners, esp at brightest aperature setting.

I do think the lense is expensive and costs way more than my rent, car payments, and insurances combined.

I need a second job. :-)

Jonathan Lee: Very nice sharp looking pictures with hugh depth of fields. Surprisingly the bokeh is available when one point it from a fist distance, like cropping for noise with a bit of eyes. Check out the bike shoots, to get some ideas.

So, why not pair the cam of this sensor with a nice sharp wide angle zoom? Say 16mm- 35mm? When will the expeŕts realizing a 24- 70 isnt the best fit?

Hey, thanks for the tips. I can see the dl 18- 50 in my hand. PC lens, too. Oh my...
