Jefftan: The real risk is Sony don't get any Sigma lens revenue so it kill APS-C camera
than Sony APS-C is really DEAD

This is real risk not kidding

How much money Sony make on A5100/A6000?
no lens revenue not worth it
may just kill it

I repeat I am not trolling
U have a point in that Sony APS-C is top seller

but what? Sony deny in an interview?
Do u know Samsung deny in an interview that it would exit the camera business just as it is closing down the camera division

Sony or any company say whatever in an interview mean nothing

it may not happen, but if more good lens like this Sigma come
and APS-C start to threaten full frame (with this lens, APS-C become just the same as a 24mm F2 full frame)
Which system do u think Sony will kill

U think the constant rumor that Sony will kill APS-C is for no valid reason
no new lens for 4 years is not a good sign for example

I am not trolling. I am using A6500 and with the system since NEX-5N

But there is constant rumor that Sony would kill APS-C
strong enough that Sony has to deny the rumor in an interview

So this is a possibility not trolling at all

ttran88: Regardless of these good news, Sony APS-C is doomed there’s still no pancake 16-55mm f2.8 for $499..

I am sure I am not alone
as I landscape photographer I rarely zoom

more than 90% of my image at widest angle
no need for heavy 16-55mm F2.8

For the few zoom pics, I use my little GM1 with pancake 70-200mm equivalent lens

With a A5100 total weight is only 700 gram

24mm equivalent F1.4 lens with a APS-C camera
This is heavy?

Many full frame heavier than this body alone?

If one care IQ, this weight is still reasonable

In reply to:

Island Golfer: I went ahead an preordered it. However, this appears to be quite a large lens for such a small camera. Sigma bills it as "compact". But, it sure looks far from compact. I' m not sure how others feel, but, I would have preferred it to be an f/2.8 lens that was an inch shorter and a half inch less in diameter. I see it as more of a landscape lens that really doesn't need to be f/1.4.

I have this lens
I told u it should not be called F2.8 but 16mm F5.6

at F2.8 the lens is all blurred, even it the center!!
only stop to F5.6 the lens become acceptable (not great, can stop dreaming about that)

Acceptable mean OK kit lens level IQ
But hey it is 70 gram and it is dirt cheap

with the high ISO ability of Sony APS-C camera, even if use forever at F5.6
It is not bad at all for the price and weight

If one care lightweight, this is a lens worth considering
not as worthless as most said

In reply to:

Woodyz: To me, the Zeiss 24mm 1.8 is the only E-mount lens worth getting. Otherwise, I wouldn't waste money buying crop lenses when it could go into full-frame FE lenses instead.

overpriced
also 35mm useless for landscape

probably IQ also overrated, not worth the price

In reply to:

teddoman: In a month, someone with an A6500 and a Sigma 16mm f/1.4 in their gear list will start a thread about how Sony APS-C is dead

Dead?

I would say Sony APS-C system most promising than any other crop sensor system
Where is Sigma lens for EF-M/Fuji X (even MFT is non native as lens design for APS-C )

The real risk is Sony don't get any Sigma lens revenue so it kill APS-C camera
than it is really DEAD

In reply to:

Chris2210: If this lives up to its promise it throws the pricing of the recent Olympus primes into sharp relief.

"more than adequate"?

this is understatement
I own A6500, I told u I am sure it is better than small sensor 20MP MFT G9

In reply to:

sibuzaru: I wish they could offer the sessions feature for Express users

just delete "capture one catalogue" folder under Widows "Pictures" folder

and everything remove
every time u start the program is all new

import from where your picture is and start working
I don't even know what is "sessions" and I don't need it

On article Phase One introduces Capture One ambassador program (98 comments in total)

leave everything default
and auto adjust (exposure, HDR, Levels)

and everything form color to detail to highlight
will be better than out of camera jpeg for my A6500

for high ISO pics (for me is above ISO 800)
only auto adjust (HDR, Levels) don't auto adjust exposure otherwise too much noise

all auto and default, result much better than camera jpeg
what more can u ask

I start out with the Sony free version
but I paid $300 for full version to use with my other camera
That's how much I like it

In reply to:

cchen2: Not an ambassador, but I'm been using Capture One for Sony Express for years now instead of Lightroom and I think its pretty great. Especially since it is free for Sony users. I found that the RAWs the I imported took less work to get the results that I wanted, compared with Lightroom 5.

I would like to add:

660 gram and $1700 for a MFT camera

Panasonic u can keep it and good luck selling it

I won't accept this price and weight for APS-C let alone MFT
nail in the coffin for a struggling company
