Samyang 14mm has very low Coma, which is great for Coma. However even Tamron 15-30 is great in that regard, and costs about 350$ more.
At 699$, this would be great, but 850$ on B&H seems a tad overpriced when you see that Tamron is 15-30 F2.8

70-300 F3.5-5.6 lenses are fairly compact. What's this new obsession with F6.3
For a 200-600 kind of budget lens it makes sense, but for a 70-300?

Solution in wait of a problem?

On article Sony a7R II versus a7 II: Eight key differences (397 comments in total)

This is a fascinating article.
I learnt a lot today. I have more article ideas you guys could do to solve the deep mysteries of photographic workd.

For example a zoom lens 18-55mm is far less expensive than a 16-35L even though it has a much bettter zoom range

Or why does a carbon fiber tripod which weighs only 400g cost more than a lump of coal(carbon again) which is over 10kgs

No 3.5mm jack? Do not want. I think only the consumers can put an end to this stupidity by refusing to buy these crippled things, and buy a proper phone instead? What next? No Dialer, buy our 1.99$ dialer package.

On article Sony prices 70-200mm F2.8 GM OSS G Master at $2600 (211 comments in total)

I feel Sony uses lens buyers as funding source to create great cameras for shooters to use with Sigma/Canon lenses :D

Thank you so much Sony Lens purchasers. Please buy these too!

Stephen McDonald: What improvements? The aerial and street views of my neighborhood were taken in 2011. Even though there's a copyright date of 2016 on the images, the cars in driveways and the colors of since-repainted houses, tell a different story. The sections of the neighbor's dead tree that fell on my roof in 3/11, is still scattered around on their yard.

Its your fault. A lot of people posted this message.

"As per statue UCC-13-1444 I hereby order and pledge google and all its subsidiaries and aunts and uncles that they cannot take pictures of my property via any means. I hereby also prohibit NASA and Uncle Sam and Aunty Pam from doing this".

So no latest pics for ya

On article All about that lens: Sony Cyber-shot RX10 III review (450 comments in total)

To all those commenting that a APS-C or FF with 24-70+70-200+200-500 is a much better option, think about this

1. It will cost much much more than $1500. Even a 4K APS-C with 16-300 will cost 1500$ approx .

2. Imagine your great FF camera with 24-70 shooting landscapes much better than this piece of rubbish. You see a great bald eagle within reach. You reach into your $200 camera bag carrying the lens which is 100 times better than this pile of rubbish. You remove your 24-70 and attach the 400mm lens. And the eagle is gone.

The second point is what people do not get. In non studio situations, there is not enough time to change lenses. The moment goes away.

In reply to:

SKPhoto12: I tried to dowload the plugin and it seemed to work. However when I wanted to activate it, it asked for an activation code. I want to try it for free before I pay, so why do I need an activation code? Is this just a bluff to make you download it and compel you to pay?

You can use it without activation code

I think Sony is targeting people with DSLRs who want a second companion camera, and APS-C shooters who just buy one all purpose lens like 18-300 etc.,

tsk1979: I have a question here. Are studio shots taken at many focal lengths? For a superzoom, it does not make sense to take them at 1 focal length.

@dpreview, for non ILCs please take studio scene comparisons at multiple focal lengths. For example in this case
24mm 35mm 50mm 85mm 105mm 135mm 150mm 200mm 300mm 400mm 600mm

This will allow people to compare with other cams in a more meaningful way.

Yes, its fair, but how useful is it? When zoom lenses are reviewed. they are not reviewed at just one focal length, right?

tsk1979: dpreview, I want to see a comparison test with a DSLR + 16-300 lens vs RX 10 III
a 4K APS-C DSLR + 16-300 is approx 1400-1500$. That would lay to rest any doubts whether this 1500$ is worth it or not

Aren't we nitpicking here. 6 months from now 4K will be here. Moreover, many 4K shooters actually go for video cams. Sony wants to hit the 90% of DSLR users who buy a mid range DSLR + 16-300 all in one lens

16-300 is 24-450. That is more than what FZ1000 offers. So, if they can compare against FZ1000 why not a DSLR with 16-300. After all, this is the segment Sony can target. We may not be has good as a APS-C with prime lens, but we will beat any ordinary lens on APS-C

In reply to:

NSingh: Looks to be a good camera but Price is too too much. Please suggest me amongst Canon 80D, Sony A6300 and Sony A6000. I just want a good live view and sharp image.

A6300 with 18-200 is the closest you get to this. Or A6300 + Sigma MC11 + 18-300 from Sigma

I think dpreview needs to redo the studio scene. The 55 1.4 lens seems to be de-centered. Without this, the noise comparison is useless!

Wow. This is awesome. I really hope that dpreview reviews this before the idiotic GX8
