  • @dbo: Used it at Photokina. IQ from the samples I took was excellent. Very sharp, almost no CAs, very nice bokeh balls when looking at oof light sources. But what surprised me was the very quick...

  • So Nikon 58/1.4, Otus, Canon 50/1.4 are jokes, too? What about 1000 for the 55/1.8? What price is justified for what kind of perfomance? I enjoy the rendering, sharpness and lack of CAs, making my ...
  • I like ours, too. Used it for the last three weddings, with great success. Sharpest lens I own so far. Having used and still use the Sigma 50 Art for Nikon, size and weight are no concerns for us.
  • @triton76: No, can be used easily wide open, you just don't know how to use it. To get a full body image of a bride in landscape orientation I need to be 17m away with my 70-200 at 200mm for nice...

  • To jump onto the SLT-badwagon, I would like to first have a lens roadmap. The new hybrid AF system can only show its full potential on a selected number of lenses, if I understood correctly ...
  • Look at the numerous, numerous samples at Fred Miranda of professionals and enthusiasts using the lens, with great results. I don't know what you are trying to prove with your accusations. I know...

  • I just downloaded one bridge image and it shows weird posterisation artefacts on my screen in the water under the bridge. Looks like low quality jpg was selected for saving the files (it is only ...
  • I took some samples at Photokina and uploaded full jpgs to my gallery here. Mainly to check bokeh ball behaviour and to get an idea of the sharpness. Iso isn't low due to the bad light there and I ...
  • I don't care about the design, but IQ and practicability. The Nikon G lenses take a hit easily without scratches and dents. Can't say the same about my ART lenses or the Sony FE lenses I have. The...

  • http://www.cameralabs.com/reviews/Nikon_Nikkor_AF-S_105mm_f1-4E_ED/verdict.shtml . I took several shots with it for testing, too, and found it to be excellent.

  • This year, with the D5/D500 and surprisingly good 105mm/1.4 was a very good year. The 105mm, although expensive, is a differentiator for me. A D750 and D810 successor will come anyway. Doesn't need...

  • Replied in Images...
    A few samples with the 70-200GM from Photokina. Lighting was not good, so ISO was set to 640, some images were pushed a bit, so an effective ISO of around 1200 was reached. No sharpening in post ...

  • Replied in Images...
    I used it at Photokina, took some shots with it. If I have time today, I upload some pics. Very fast AF, nearly no aberrations, very sharp, esp. at 100 and 135mm. At 200 excellent, too. I ...
  • The Sony rep didn't know it, when I asked again today at Photokina. I had an A99ii with 135/1.8, was quick to focus, but not quick enough for fast changes in distances when using tracking, unless...

  • It is difficult to predict, as they still have very good cameras which are sold and still many many uses. Using the word "nothing" means all other have their share of "nothing", too. . Canon...

  • Replied in Sony A99 II
    Indeed. I was there Tuesday already, but one day is not enough to look at all the things. My goal was trying the 70-200GM. Meanwhile, they took our FE50/1.4 in custody. One other Sony employee ...
  • Replied in Sony A99 II
    Uncompressed raws are around 70-80MB, even higher with lots of noise. So you have almost 1GB/s of data transfer. The Nikon D5 uses XQD cards to get the data quickly on card but is 20MP only. ...
  • Replied in Sony A99 II
    Would be nice, but how do you know that? I took the brochure with me from Photokina, and it is written that AF is frozen at the first frame in Hi+. So far none of the recent Sony cameras has ...
  • @thx1138: I was standing at Photokina at the Sony booth and my A7rii with grip is certainly not tiny compared to the A99ii ;-) To be serious: I just fear the A99ii is too late. So many signs...
