  • After studying the results, it appears that the Fuji is slightly superior.

    The big question is... Is the very small increase in overall image quality worth the loss of dozens of possible lenses,...

  • I think Sigma is doing an awesome job with their Art series lenses.

    It seems to be that the latest lens offerings from Canon, Nikon, Sigma, and Zeiss, far outshine the meager camera body...

  • Once again..... the best FF camera in the world Sony A99 II, now sabotaged by Sony itself. None of the latest lenses are available in A mount. But there are a dozens of 30+ year old Minolta lenses...

  • Not available in Sony A mount.
    Best lens, and best camera will never meet.
    Cheers Sigma

  • Commented on article Sony SLT a99 II Review

    The photo that DPR is using of the camera in review, has a Zeiss 85 1.4 mounted. Why is that lens not listed on Sony's official site? Are there other great lenses not listed?

    My only complaint...

  • Of course when shooting into the light wide open, it's not perfect. Keep in mind the price of the lens, the amount of glass in it, and it's intended purpose.

    As a portrait lens it looks superb to...

  • I used to very much agree with what you said about shooting with Leica.....

    That feeling is very much diluted these days, with the new digital Leica's. Other than the jewel like lenses, most of...

  • This is an esoteric boutique camera.

    Leica is no longer what it used to be, because the Germans are the greatest at mechanical engineering, not electronic. Todays cameras are basically computers...

  • Is it worth it????

    During the film era, I made the big jump from 35mm to medium format. At that time it was a considerable decision to make..... Much bulkier, much more expensive, slower lenses,...

  • The legendary Leica M, a benchmark of German mechanical, and optical engineering for decades.....

    On a recent trip to Hong Kong, I noticed dozens of jewelry stores selling very large "Leica...

  • I don't know why Canon needs patents?

    ...... Do they worry Sony will steal their 5 year old technology, and release a vintage camera line?

  • There is no doubt that the Sony A99 II is the absolute best camera body in the world as of January 2017. I hope it gets the all-time highest DPR rating, because it deserves it.

    But, there are 2...

  • Actually I would have picked the new Canon 35mm 1.4 II

  • There is always a fly in the ointment...

    Sony and Sigma are the two great overachievers in the camera world today. Sony demolishing the competition with it's new A99 II, Sigma biting at Zeiss...

  • The Canon 5D MKIV would get totally slaughtered in that comparison. The far better selling Canon, is at least 5 years behind the Sony a99 II in terms of ingenuity and advancement.

    The Canon has...

  • You guys are not on the same page as me...... I said all of the latest and GREATEST prime lenses are not available in Sony A mount. None, with the one exception of the Zeiss 135 1.8 are the latest...

  • I'm really sorry. I knew someone would point out what you did.

    I'm not interested in zoom lenses, they are a compromise, And I don't like to compromise, especially with such a high resolution...

  • This is a very frustrating camera release. On paper it's the best camera in the world, by far. On paper totally destroys the new Canon 5D IV.

    The big problem no lenses. The new and great Sony G...

  • Actually I'm becoming a little frustrated and confused. I'm disappointed with Canon. I don't really like the Nikon F mount. The Sony E mount is half gadget half camera. Sony A mount??? At heart...

  • There are advantages to having the shutter in the camera body as well. Higher shutter speeds, faster lenses, cheaper lenses.

    Don't expect to see a 100mm f.2.0 on the new Hasselblad X1D.
