On article The Sony a9 is a 24MP sports-shooting powerhouse (1878 comments in total)

Staying completely away from any sort of comment on whether it is a shockingly good or an average camera, but somehow I was thinking that A9 will be a high MP flagship. For some reason was not expecting Sony to dedicate their flagship for the sport market

Petrogel: If OS X could be installed on a PC, then no-one would buy an Apple, although the last two versions (El Capitan and Sierra) are quit glitchy .

They are here to make money and it seems that they are doing better than ever. But I dislike the company for various reasons and not sure if ai want to wish them good. Their values is my biggest problem

JT26: I used to adore apple... Just bland announcements and behind the competition now. The one thing that keeps them current is their operating system which is slicker and quicker than others.

How can one adore a company...adore something that has no spuld...adore an entity that exists for the sake of the profit? Beyond me

Personally, solely for my use and my understanding, I am a lot more excited by the prospect of getting the 5Ds MKII when it is released and use top of the line Canon lenses with a very high MP camera and use the OVF that I like. For me and it is only my opinion...Canon system is exceptional today and it is becoming better and better with each new release

Light Pilgrim: Pretty much EVERY lens that Sigma releases is a NO GO for be due to the size and the weight. I just do not get it. I loved when Canon release the 16-35 F/4 IS as it is lighter than the f/2.8 version and is insanely sharp too, it has IS. I am using it solely for Landscape purposes. 135 and 85 are the portrait lenses for me and I am very tired carrying all the heavy and bulky gear with me all the time. I am not even looking into it. I hope that Canon releases something to replace their 85 and 135 mm that will be suited for high MP cameras and that it will not be big and heavy.

Sacred, again...because I photograph people too!!! Because I may have a project to photograph ballerina at the top of the mountain. I seriously do not understand why people always want others to do the things they do. I only expressed y own opinion about my purchasing decisions.

Different people are talking different applications. Some will take just one camera and Sigma 85 Art to the park for 1-2 hrs which is not a challenge. Some will have to carry 3-5 lenses to the peak of the mountain and if each lens will be 0,3-0,5 kg heavier than the counterpart, you will have a lot of extra weight. Those that hike and climb a lot will understand. I have paid a lot more for my backpack because it is lighter and the same for the tripod and even for my hiking should recently. You can easily add or reduce several kilos depending on what you are carrying. My clothes are lighter, shoes are lighter, my backpack is lighter and this is why getting a lens that is as bulky and heavy and is madness. But THIS IS JUST MY OWN CASE, my own opinion and my own reason why I am not interested. I am cheering up and I like Sigma, but I am tired carrying heavy gear. Other are free to do what they please.

John C Tharp, what are you talking about?
just look at this picture of 85 mm lenses: http://media.the-digital-picture.com/Images/Other/Sigma-85mm-f-1.4-DG-HSM-Art-Lens/Sigma-85mm-f-1.4-DG-HSM-Art-Lens-Comparison-with-Hoods.jpg

@sacred, my muscles are not a problem. Can send you a picture, if you want to. It is a matter of comfort and convenience. I seriously do think it is a strange way of thinking that each time Sigma releases a new lens that is bulkier and heavier than their counterparts, people are expected to go to gym and increase their muscles by 30-40% to balance it. Other people say, but this is why you pay HUGE money for Leica lenses, because they are so good and so light and small. At least Leica users do not have to spend 7 days per week in the gym to be able to carry their lenses if I follow your logic.

On article iPhone 8 front camera rumored to capture 3D images (76 comments in total)

It is all silly. Why all of a sudden pay 1000+$ for an OLED display? Other companies have ot for a very long time at a competitive price. But yes, Apple needs to ensure sky high margins. 3D camera....well.....hope it is not as useless as 3D touch. In all honesty....people are being turned into zombies...what we all need is a better quality life and it might mean to get rid of an iPhone.

I would inmediately purchase 135 mm but I will not do it because of AF reliabity and consistency. Sigma is a fantastic company and what they do it amazing, but my experience showed me that nothing I can rely 100% other than my Canon lenses. So I will just wait for Canon new versions of 85 and 135.
14 mm is anotger story. You do not need AF there, so this is cool. But 12 mm would be nicer:-)

Light Pilgrim: Good looking and a capable compact camera. Would have been a better product with a better lens (sharper and F/1.8 or faster). Forth iteration and yet the same lens. All in all, it capable hands will produce great images. I am interested and will likely purchase.

Majauskasson, maybe this is just me, but I shoot wide open a lot for the portraiture work. If I have an F/2.8 lens, I will shoot at F/2.8 95% of the time and will change the aperture in some specific conditions where I cannot judge if what I have to be in focus will be in focus. I also have F/1.4 lenses and I typically shoot at f/1.8. This is why people purchase fast lenses - because the want to use them after wide apertures. F/2 is still OK for this lens....I assume it is not the same as F/2 in a FF camera, but it is still OK. The thing is, this lens is not the sharpest of the kind and it can be improved for sure. So it can still be an F/2 lens, but the sharpness and micro-contrast can be improved.

In reply to:

PhotoUniverse: Ans so it begins!
People bashed me here when I said, DJI involvement can't be a good thing for Hasselblad's camera business future. 2 different mentalities for how to run business.

Not sure if people will be pay 10's of thousands for a "Chinese" product ;-)

Volvo is a great example. It is still produced and designed in Sweden, but money are coming from China. But look at Volvo today, it is as good as it gets!

Jaguar is very similar with money from India...it was dying, but it is back to exceptional now!

Rick Knepper: Dear Fugi, beyond the 6 lenses already announced, first look into adding a long lens. The 23mm (18mm 35mm equivalent) will satisfy UWA for many. I think 300mm should be the target.

It is Fuji, not Fugi
