On photo Descent in the -Urban Patterns- (City Scenery in BW) challenge (6 comments in total)

An awesome photo, but because of f22 low(ish) IQ.

Boss of Sony: Wow. My dream lens. And light. And not too expensive. Panasonic is an engineering wonder nowadays. I wish the 10-25 for micro four thirds had been more like this one. It’s too expensive and heavy for me.

Ultra-wide angle kit lens for a full-frame camera yes zakaria.

Bimmerphile: For landscape photography, 16mm wide angle is not enough! I love use super wide angle lens, 12mm or 14 mm is my favor focal length. It will need 95mm filter holder.

IMO. ultra-wide angle lenses are for getting closer to your subject, to exaggerate perspective distortion (below 24 maybe 21mm) and maybe for astrophotography.
I don't say that, they are not for landscape photography; but the main purpose is to get closer IMO. Beside that, I like the look of vertical panoramas more, for some kind of landscape photos.

mosc: I'm surprised it's that many. The 300mm f4 with a 1.4x is just as bright f5.6 and not THAT much shorter (420mm). It's also pretty good at, you know, 300mm. And the pair is cheaper. And lighter.

This lens never made sense to me anyway. Buy Nikon's 300mm f4 instead.

And 500mm lens can be 700mm with a 1.4x tc...I think for the bird photographers every mm counts.

Strolic Furlan: I have the Redmi Note 7, in 48 megapixel mode it takes detailed pictures for a 196 euros smartphone (colours could be better in normal AWB mode though).

Strolic Furlan,
Thank you very much for the detailed explanation. I think I will give it a try.

Strolic Furlan,
I don't mind photographic features much but how is Redmi Note 7? I am planning to buy a phone. Can you please tell me pros and cons of it?

Shiranai: "a lens that arguably doesn't yet have a sensible camera to attach it to"

Right, I forgot my EOS R is so bad it basically CAN'T take photos.
I forgot nowadays you need 28 stops of dynamic range, 10 axis image stabilizer, a quintuple card slot and a 240fps IRIS micro-contrast detection to be remotely ABLE to take pictures.

@Shiranai,
I can see that previously you have used Canon 600D. May I ask why did you need to change it? It was not able to take photos?
Of course it was. But you wanted maybe a full-frame camera, maybe better camera, maybe you wanted a camera which has new technology inside it.
Maybe you will say "it was broken, that is why". Then I will ask you that, Canon had many other cameras when you purchased 600D, so why did you pick that specific model over other Canon cameras?

"a lens that arguably doesn't yet have a sensible camera to attach it to"

What I understand from this is; new Canon RF 85mm 1.2 is so good that it deserves the best possible camera.

Does anyone know why it is very hard for the cameras to process red color, especially on flowers?

VictorTrasvina: May I suggest the Yashica 35 & Canonet? Hard to beat at current prices

my thoughts exactly!
Canonet G-III QL17 and Yashica Electro 35 GSN
Contax G2 and Minolta hi-matic 7s II are very cool as well.

I didn't mean to offend you wam7. It was not for your photo. I am just sorry for the animals which suffer because of mankind. We are reading how people torture animals everyday.

thx1138: 79% would have been more sensible given the glaring oversight of no IBIS, crop of a crop for 4K, pitiful SD UHS-1 only and appalling ergonomics. A camera is more than it's AF and sensor. Based on this scoring sytsem some cameras should get 110%.

The thing you don't get is; Fujifilm is not a brand known with IBIS. What you said (to just trying desperately to defend Sony) is "in that price range don't expect IBIS"...And I gave you many examples but now you are trying to twist.
Canon, Nikon and Panasonic used to use OS
Sony, Olympus and Pentax IBIS.
It is not about price but not to cannibalize 6500.
Sony is successful, because they didn't follow Canikon's strategy while crippling the cameras. But now Sony is on the same road.
6400 has AF system of a 3500 USD camera (A9's). With your logic you can't expect having the same AF in that price range.
What I think is (and you can't change it unless you tell us something logical) IBIS is not a good way to cripple. Because we are investing for the lenses and we want to see our way.

YES IBIS is an oversight and shame for SONY. It was NOT price depended and fanboys like you can not change the facts.
Olympus, Pentax and Sony were the brands which used to use IBIS in ALL their models.
Olympus PEN E-PL9
Olympus OM-D E-M10 III
Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II
Olympus PEN E-PL8
And all Pentax models have IBIS no matter in what price range they are.
And Sony also used to have IBIS in their SLT/DSLR models
Now If you have something logical to say, go ahead!
