On article Samyang teases 'summer blockbuster' lens announcements (122 comments in total)

"Autofocus is also quite new for Samyang lenses, with only one lens (AF 50/1.4 FE) available" available where?

maxnimo: How about some optimism here, folks ... these film rolls could hold genuine photos of alien UFO's, artifacts and extraterrestrial beings, as well as famous superstars of music, film, art and science.

@ maxnimo

And that is why they are doing it, by doing it, on their website says "The Rescued Film Project full print/publish copyright of recovered images"

so not only they don't pay to develop it, but if they find something interesting they own it, and they can make more money from it.

happypoppeye: So the rescued film project doesn't have the resources to rescue film ...probably should have thought of that before creating the project.

its a scheme, they find film, make other people pay to develop it, then they claim print/publish copyright rights to the pictures, if they manage to find something interesting they take it to galleries, maybe sell some shots, and more profit....

AD in KC: Why are we so instantly enamored with photographers who are dead? How many living, breathing artists are out there who can't get a gallery to return their calls?

@ graybalanced

"Photographer finds 1200 rolls of unprocessed film from 1950s" and they want us to pay to develop it so they can claim full print/publish copyright so they can profit from it even more.

sounds like a great scheme.

Francis Sawyer: And Sigma's EF-to-E-mount adapter doesn't work with Canon lenses. So there's trouble all around.

Sigma MC-11 does work Canon lenses. But Sigma is not advertising it, and they are not supporting it. Their adapter is for their lenses.

Kevin Fitzsimons: I've been a Canon user for almost 30 years and my aging body can't take carrying the large bodies and lenses any longer. I'm now using a Think Tank roller camera case, but I'm also building my Fuji X system. When Fuji comes out with a pro flash system, I'm making the switch. I was hoping Canon would introduce a pro level mirrorless camera, but I don't think it's going to happen.

I'm done with Canon, I still might buy a lens here or there, but never buying another Canon camera again. If I would want to buy a camera that is 3-6 years behind competition I would just buy a older cheaper camera from the competition.

backayonder: All these updates would be fine if I had unlimited broadband bandwidth each month. 8GB is just not enough to watch my football team currently top of the Premier League I might add never mind finding bandwidth for all these constant Adobe updates.
I am sure that when Photoshop was available on a disk they took more care before releasing a new version.

you mean back in the day with lightroom 5 when updates where 900mb, but now with lightroom 6 updates are 240mb?

Glenn Barber: If not said previously - the most important question is - will this now work reliably and fast enough on a Sony A7RII or 6300 for BIF

Glenn Barber, its works very well with metabones, i'm expecting even better results with sigma adapter, have one on order.

In reply to:

new boyz: It shows just how good Sigma is in reverse engineering.

@ Rishi Metabones is emulating the old Sony adapters, and that doesn't give you all the AF options. Sigma is not the first to do this, TechArt made an adapter (that works with Canon lenses) and will emulate an native lens. It was done 5+ months ago.

Metabones eventually will have to change that.

I'm surprised that Sony will not release a new adapter for A mount lenses to adapt natively to the E mount.

In reply to:

Sarge_: From a sales perspective, I cannot fathom why they would make a Sigma mount over a Nikon mount.

Surely there are more Nikon users who also own Sony E mount cameras than their are Sigma camera owners with E-mount cameras?

don't forget the stupid AF motors in a lot of Nikon lenses.

In reply to:

belle100: I have doubt that this will work for Canon lenses because it is printed clearly "DESIGNATED SIGMA LENSES ONLY" on the adapter.
Perhaps Sigma can make a different version that will do with Canon lenses and charge a much high price. And yet, make another version and charge even higher for those Nikonese.

why would they bother? they want to sell their lenses, not sell Canon lenses.

photonius: Dear Canon
In your shift to "upmarket", don't forget the Rebel owners. I don't want a heavier upmarket model, I will always stay with Rebels for weight. But I sure would appreciate (and maybe buy a new body) if you would not cripple the Rebels in software, why not give them MFA, timers, and other things that can be implemented with little extra cost. And a GPS for travel...

@ photonius if you worry about weight so much, stop buying DSLRs. There are much much better options out there now.

photon_trap: Hopefully better than Metabones (etc) junk......
Why do lens adapters suck so much? I have always had huge troubles with them.

must be the user. my metabones works great.

In reply to:

chriscotec: I missed the fact that this probably only works for cropped sensor (E) bodies or full frame (FE) bodies in crop mode, looking at the size of the camera side aperture in the mount. Still, it is useful for video in cropped mode on FF bodies. A FE mount adapter would have been better though.

this is full frame adapter.

but if they not cripple them how are they going to sell more expensive dobies.
