rsf3127: No FE mount lenses... : (

Yes, the 135/1.8 would be killer on a stabilized sensor.

Wow - at least someone is continuing to develop products for Nikon bodies.

The 135/1.8 looks awesome.

I think everyone is focussing on the IR aspect - and that is fine - that is what they reported on. But - holy crap - a completely new kind of sensor! What can it do for us? Can't wait to find out. Will it have huge dynamic range? Ultra low noise?

Interesting - an affordable 85/1.8 native lens for FE mount. Very interesting. I am always nervous with DSLR and shallow DOF due to front/back focus. But this baby not only won't have those issues it can also detect faces and even eyes and focus and expose on them! Brilliant for portraitists.

john10001: This is a lot better from Panasonic in terms of size. The LX-100 wasn't really a good continuation from the LX3, 5, 7 in terms of size or usage. Unfortunately it does seem to drop off a steep curve beyond wide open in terms of low light performance.

Yes, the LX100 houses a m4/3 sensor - but doesn't use the whole sensor. Therefore - the size difference between LX100 and say, RX100 series 1" sensor really isn't that great. But -the LX100 did have a great control layout.

LawDude: I just bought the lens and tested it, and holy crap is it sharp! Even wide open, it resolves a crazy amount of detail across all focal lengths. At 50mm, it’s almost as sharp as my Sigma 50mm Art. If there’s a downside, it's that it “breathes” when pulling focus in autofocus (Canon 80D). But I’ll forgive it for its gorgeous image quality.

Velvet - the 6d + SIG 70-200 costs less than the SIG 50-100?

dansclic: The words "high end" Is inflated : this camera is definitely not a high end camera, it lacks all subtleties and functions required by à so called high end camera. Things are changing. Basic p&s are now completely obsolete because of smartphones and it demands much more than a "normal" small camera to be called high end....

In terms of IQ - it is a big step above small sensored compacts.

If I were going to drop big cash and didn't already have lenses - I would go with mirrorless. I just can't stand the live view performance on dlsrs. It is horrific. It is like two different devices - a good experience when you have the device covering one eye - and a miserable experience when you move it away from your eye and try to use it.

I had an nex camera way back in the day. I could never get used to the colors. I have to say, it looks like Sony has made great strides in this area.

OlyPent: Be nice if someone released a FF with 5mp using modern sensor tech. 5mp is plenty of resolution for a lot of uses and the low-light capability would be pretty impressive.
There are a lot of scientific cameras that sport 23um pixels, but no consumer cameras.

Sony 12mp FF sensor. I don't think dropping to 5mp would buy you a lot more.

beavertown: Can't believe that it scored 69% like the V1.

Yeah, the V1 was a much better camera. The sensor sucked - but the body and lenses were just the right size. Sometimes I wish I would not have sold that little thing.

brownie314: Does anyone know if exposure is linked to face recognition point on Sony a5100?

Well, it works that way on my Coolpix A - and I love it. Never have to worry about a bad exposure. And if it you are having problems with bad exposure due to differences in skin brightness - you can always do some exposure compensation.

HowaboutRAW: Wow, for colour,that’s a big improvement over other Sigma Art lenses.

Nice to see Sigma flirting with good Leica and Zeiss lens territory.

It would be helpful to have some higher ISO samples, but #5&(&*##4%%**^!.

What will higher ISO tell you about lens performance?

On article Spoilt for choice: which Sony RX100 is right for you? (303 comments in total)

I think the super AF and burst rates are slightly wasted on a camera with very little tele reach. I have noted when I shoot wide to normal I rarely need super AF abilities or high burst rates. When I am shooting a long lens - I almost always need fast AF and high burst rates. But maybe I am weird.

On article Tiny marvel: Panasonic LX10 sample photos (77 comments in total)

Well, clearly, the vivid photo mode does not play well with high ISO settings. The OOC jpgs were pretty bad. But the edited images look really great. Damn Panasonic - turn down the noise reduction! It makes images look awful. Also - do not shoot in vivid mode.

In reply to:

rlidal: We have come (too) far when ISO 6400 is "rather limiting" in Raw mode. For all intended purposes – quite literally – 6400 is miles and miles and miles past what anyone needs, 99 % of the time. And that goes for anyone who holds a camera – with professional photography it's even less true. Someone who calls herself/himself a professional photographer, and claims she/he is limited by ISO 6400, is of course not a professional photographer.

I needed it tonight. I was taking pictures indoors at night with a long zoom at f/5. Yeah, I know - the solution is to get a faster long zoom. But those can get pretty expensive. I was at ISO 6400 and was wishing my d7000 didn't totally fall apart at higher ISOs.
