ovlov: Too bad Sony has all but abandoned the A-mount lens wise.

TrojMacReady---the sigma 85mm f1.4 is not available in the Sony A-mount. The Sigma 18-35 1.8 is in A-mount. Here are the Sigma lenses that support the A-mount currently: https://www.sigmaphoto.com/lenses/standard-lenses?sigma_mount=12064

Really hoping Sigma will make all of its Art series glass available in the A-mount. Not sure if Sigma is planning to continue support for the A-mount

PeterNMIF: Some mention of cost would be helpful. It would help me, and others I think too, determine how much time to spend reading the article. Perhaps I missed it as I have to admit that though I read the article I have not looked at the videos.

I've seen the alien bees --DigiBee by Paul C. Buff. It's a better value ---allows both flash and continuos lighting. Fantastic product --best of both worlds.

NaBalam: Wow he must have one hell of a camera

NO---He is one hell of a photographer. Its the photographer who made these great images---not the camera. Any camera bought within the last few years has the potential to make great images like this. His knowledge , skills and application of the art of photography is what makes the photographs so compelling and wonderful.

Mike99999: Judging from the trollfest in these comments, many Canon and Fuji affectionados are getting their panties in a bundle over this lens.

This lens seals the deal for Canon being an outdated system.

The Batis, Loxia, Sony Zeiss and GM lens lines have taken away Fujis crown of most desirable mirrorless lenses.

I can understand why people are lashing out.

Fabulous. Finally---a true DSLR sized medium format digital camera. NICE! Like to see a telephoto lens offered in addition to the wide angle 45mm and normal 90mm lens.

On article Beta: try out our new 'light' color scheme (722 comments in total)

The white version is easiest to read. White text on black background is more difficult for some to read including myself. At night, or reading in a dark room, the black background works better. Can Preview please keep both options for readers? Bravo!

Hey Sony...please provid lossless raw files for the Sony A77mk 2 in the A-mount. For some work situations, I could really use lossless raw files to begin with.

Gary Dean Mercer Clark: The red skin tones don't look natural. Using wide angle lenses for portraits doesn't produce the pleasant perspective that normal to telephoto range lenses provide. Can't believe these are the real life examples you chose to represent this lens/camera combination.

Wasim , you are correct. I guess I expect better composed wide angle portraits and skin tones from the samples posted, but realize that these are just snapshots--I missed the point about real-world shots. The sheeple have spoken and I stand corrected. Reddish orange skin is the new fashion look! Must have missed this new trend in Vogue. Lol

You are a bully Der Steppenwolf. You attack me personally? Really?

Go bully someone who actually cares. :) Opinions are like holes in the ground--Everyone has one.

David Kinston: I'm crying - you ignored my sigma 85/1.4 boohoo

Why would you keep a bad copy of the Sigma lens? Send the lens back to Sigma and get a good copy! Duh! Send an inferior copy to have tested by lens rentals?----really? So you can figure out how lousy the sigma lens is? Doesn't seem very objective or fair to Sigma. testing lenses with known issues is not the point of lens rental's testing.

On article Sony SLT-A77 II Review (548 comments in total)

The most enjoyable camera that I've ever shot with. It performs superbly and is an all-around camera. Did landscapes for commercial clients with it. Photographed surfers,runners,bicycliests,cars, events,artwork for reproduction. It is so customize able, that I can configure it in so many ways to maximize picture quality, my shooting style. Only wish Sony had put the same image stabilization as in the Sony A7 mm 2, but the existing image stabilization works. Love the articulated screen--a joy to use. Lots of great A-mount lenses still work beautifully from the Minolta days. Bought a stellar 50mm f1.4 Minolta amount for $50.00 bucks---it is superb. Great camera for the price .
