Can you plebs just say 'cool' instead of acting like little girls with a skinned knee? So what if it's been done before. Or hey,, just say nothing at all. It's actually INTERESTING to some folk.

On article Sony a9 Full Review: Mirrorless Redefined (2585 comments in total)
In reply to:

ocean1: Thank you for the detailed review I am glad that it is big and detailed as a99II's sould have been ...

The conclusion is that its destroys the 1DXII and its very little behind Nikon's Excellent 3d tracking .

A big introduction into the Pro sports photography for Sony.

As I see it the benefits from quiet shooting and autofocus frame coverage are more importand from the tremendus speed of the camera at least for Wedding and ceremony shooters also of course for spor shooters that can do better compositions with this camera .

Now imaging the second generation body of this camera and you know who will be the New King ... Nikon and canon wake up please!

Ps. Nikon and canon should speed up their researh and development divisions .
A little more innovation especialy from canon that is sleeping will make photography industry shine like the old days that competition was strong between the 2 companies.

Destroys the 1-DX II,,, lol. What a maroon.

rfsIII: As always, another great story from our PopPhoto alum. They should change his name to Mowtown because he just keeps cranking out the hits.
However, I don't understand why we perpetuate the myth that having multiple camera bodies or big lenses makes you conspicuous. It's not the equipment that makes you stand out, it's your attitude and actions (with the exception of a white EF 800mm f/5.6L IS or similar).
If you clomp into a location elbows out, wearing a lavender spandex dress and making a lot of mouth noises while waving your cameras in everyone's personal space, yes indeed you will be noticed. Fortunately, the opposite is also true. So if people are reacting badly to you and your camera, it's time to take some ballet classes and upgrade your wardrobe.

I'm sure they'd be 'happier' with a '59 Flame Top,, just as I'd be happier with a Phase One IQ3.

OlyPent: Solid equipment, good value, not DSLR. This is the future.

As long as a DSLR is the right tool for the job,,, and people earn money from doing that job,,, DSLR's are going nowhere. So hey, have a coke and a smile,, and zip it.

Nothing wrong with DSLR's.

Great stuff,,,, I don't shoot Fuji, but robust sales = more choice for photographers. Hard to hate on that,, though some here are trying pretty hard.

BobT3218: Halleluiah, a depth of field scale. I can't understand why this feature is not mandatory on all primes. It was once. How difficult can it be?

Don't you actually learn the DOF properties after you've played with the lens a few times? I don't get it. It's never been an issue for me,,, but I'm sure I'm doing it wrong. Educate me, oh wise ones.

Juck: Cool, I guess? Doesn't the old version sell for like 50 bucks?

OK,, so the modern version is made by currently underpaid German workers. I don't get the whole wringing of hands over the DOF scale thing,, I use a digital camera,,, like most folk,,, once I've shot a lens a few times,, I get used to it's optical properties and unique character. Who needs a DOF scale? Not trying to be funny,, I honestly don't get it.

How difficult can it be to use a lens that doesn't have a DOF scale?

barrym1966: Man up, that right is heavier than the lens. Also if you use a proper shutter speed those bombs would have been in focus

haha,, I totally thought they were bombs too at first glance.

D200_4me: I've seen way too many photos like this on social media. For the first several you see it's pretty cool. But after awhile, you get sick of seeing it. No burning steel wool will be swung around in front of my camera. I've seen too much of it already :-)

@I Have a dream ,,, Adroitly put.

Great work,, I assume a guy with this resume is using the house strobes.

JohnnyFl: Nice now were talking, but Canon please put some money into a developing a decent FF mirrorless ILC camera please!

@Tommi K1,,, Nonsense. The entire TV series House was most certainly NOT shot on a 5D II,,,,, ONE single episode, where he was trapped in a collapsed building was shot on a 5D,,, and that is all.

In reply to:

EdnaBambrick: Not impressed. It's like the photographer didn't really think about how to use a 28mm f1.4 lens and in fact was using one for the very first time. As a long time shooter of the Hollywood Distagon and now the proud owner of the Otus 28mm, you have to understand the limited ways to use this lens. Mainly, for cinematic style lighting and set-ups and when you need superior separation between the subject while still showing the context of where your subject resides. The girl with the camels and the couple embracing come the closest to the proper way of using this lens. In many other cases the background is too close behind the subject.

Edna,, google 'epistemological arrogance',,, just if you have a minute,, in between your educational endeavors and dry-humping your Otus.
