cdembrey: I don't remember there being such a S-Storm when the g0dz at Fujifilm released the XF56mmF1.2 R APD soft-focus lens. Different rules for different folks, I guess.

Lol please ! Apple is hardly like Leica. Apple always uses the best processors by far when they launch. Performance and simplicity are their key aspects.

Leica cameras are severely crippled cameras with decades old tech and under-performing sensors.

They are meant sorely for people with tons of money and this lens is meant for those with tons of money and little sense. :P

Kashim: An extremely overpriced lens that creates junk images; great idea! I'm sure it'll sell like hotcakes. :)

Since when has popularity ever been a benchmark for quality ? If that was true then Mcdonalds will be making the best burgers ever !

This lens is an overpriced junk lens used in very few scenarios and honestly people calling a spade a spade is everyones right. If anyone has any counter argument with facts rather than trying to show popularity as a measure of quality then by all means go ahead.

HowaboutRAW: Why so few unlossy compressed raws?

Even with the e-shutter fully engaged the raws should be about 42MP--even if they're only 12 bits.

Also which files were mechanical shutter, e-first curtain, and full e shutter?

I made two simple points. One that you claim to test many cameras but you don't share any information whatsoever and two that you claim to be a photographer but you don't support your claim with any information.

You did not disprove anything I said! :p

So yes you agreed you make claims without any proof!

Now what is wrong with I said? You do make your claims without any proof. Yes or no?

lukecookphoto: What is it with Canon and the reluctance to put 4k in stuff? It's absurd, not having 4k now is almost as bad as not having 1080P a few years ago.

A minority will spend so much on this expensive camera too ! :P

If Canon is so reluctant to put something as basic as 4k on its cameras then people are free to choose other stuff which has 4k.

For the price of $1300 there is very little that is really compelling in this camera. Middling sensor, slow lens, very basic video, slow card slot and a high price. Very little as it is to recommend in this camera to anyone.

Lol HowaboutRAW you basically agreed with everything I said ! :P

Now go back to explaining how Mcdonalds is like compressed lossy RAW ! :)

Guys don't bother arguing with how about raw. He doesn't show any proof to back up any of his statements. He claims to be a photographer but doesn't show any photos. Claims to have tested multiple cameras but doesn't show any results.

Basically believe his grandiose statements at your own peril cause he has zero credibility over here.

kewlguy: For the price of the lens, I wouldn't expect blur on the right side of the frame (image #26). Still it's an awesome lens if it's not decentered. I like the rendering better compared to my Canon 100-400 mkii.

Unfortunately Sony qc doesn't seem to be the best. A lot of their lenses have a more than average sample variation

whakapu: Firstly; that's a damn handsome mountain. Secondly, curiously mixed results. Some seem very sharp and contrasty but shot 17 has the sort of CA and general mehness that would slightly disappoint me from a superzoom on a consumer APS-C

Lol what they meant by that is not that a mirrorless camera can't misfocus! :p

It means that lenses can't show a permanent front or back focus like miscalibrated DSLR lenses show. Hence you don't get a micro focus adjustment on mirrorless cameras since it's not an issue with contrast based AF systems which mirrorless cameras use.

Pixel peepers and non photographers will be able to tell the differences if given large screens and a good level of magnification.

Photographers viewing photos that have been reasonably well exposed and seen at print levels won't be able to tell the difference with any sort of reliability.

TMHKR: Because DxOMark is the most useless thing in history of photography?

What do you mean why is it relevant? There are a multitude of camera sensors and all aren't the same.

Not everyone can test and use before you buy a camerq
Some benchmark is needed to know what is available and their performance. Dxomark is just one among a multitude of information available to make your decision. Anyone solely using dxomark to base their decision isn't correct and anyone dismissing the value of sensor measurement for everyone is either ignorant or foolish or both.

Michael Ma: Because of dxomark, all the cameras and lenses will eventually look the same, as if they were shot from a smartphone. We'll lose proprietary color science, lens rendering characteristics, light diffusion characteristics, all for the sake of achieving boring clinical sharpness.

I am sure lens engineers are designing all lenses to conform to dxo testing. :p

Class A: DxOMark reviews focus on the measurements, there are no "hands on" field tests, etc. Seems odd to retract a result that would have been useful to people from the database just because some minimal write up had not been done yet.

It is also odd to make a strategic decision to not consider MF anymore mid-review, after most work (acquiring the camera and measuring it) had been done. Why not capitalise on the investment and then pull the plug on MF?

Furthermore, to the best of my knowledge, the market for MF cameras is not very dynamic. Respective market releases are not very frequent so the workload reduction achieved was rather minimal. Was it worth to have a lot of conspiracy theories develop just to save measuring an MF sensor once in a blue moon?

^^ I am sure you have some proof about Sony paying money to dxomark in case Sony decides to sue you! :p

Ben O Connor: What a dumb explanation! If they would publish THE TRUTH Pentax would be in better financial and production condition then it is now.

I deeply wish to own that camera... sad to be poor.

^^ Yeah if dxomark held such sway with people Canon would have been out of business long time ago :p

breschdlingsgsaelz: This makes me want to switch to sony once more. The Samyang is the best 35 f1.4 I have seen yet. It has the smoothest bokeh of all 35 and stopped down it is plenty sharp. I only gave it away because of the missing AF, but I do not like my sigma Art nearly as much as I liked the Samyang.

Will there be a Canon EF version, too?

No they are different lenses. The DSLR lens has 12 elements in 10 groups while the mirror less version has 11 elements in 9 groups. So optically they are different.

But the biggest difference is that the mirrorless lens has a 67mm filter thread while the DSLR version has 77mm thread. So it's a mirrorless lens for sure and not a DSLR lens purported for mirror less

Terry Breedlove: These cameras are so different that I could not careless who goes first. Except that the Nikon is so damn close to the medium format cameras sensor performance speaking and Light years ahead in focusing lens choices etc. That is where my money would go. That is all that matters to me because it is my money.

It depends on what sort of photography one shoots. If I was a full time landscape or interior photographer I would look very hard at the Pentax 645Z. Same if I was a studio photographer. However if I needed good AF for anything I shoot I would never ever consider the Pentax. It's a very niche camera and not an all rounder like a Nikon d850 or canon 5d mk 4

straylightrun: Cheaper than the 'made in Thailand Sony "Zeiss"' 35/1.4? And most likely better quality control as well? Samyang has another winner.

I use the Sony 35mm f1.4 lens. Its a beautiful lens with very smooth rendering and the AF is spot on even in very low light. The Samyang will probably offer very close performance at a fraction of the price. But I would still stick with my Sony since it's already one of my favourite lenses along with the 85mm f1.4 GM and the AF is very very reliable

Nope! It's a mirrorless lens. Not designed for DSLR cameras.

Roland Karlsson: So, they made all the tests, so that they could get a score. And then they did decide to not publish it? Because the choose to not bother with medium format? And therefore they never finished the review?

I am trying to assimilate that information. It creaks and wobbles a bit. Might be true, might not. Personally I would have used the already made work to make a light weight trivia article, presenting the 101 score. Just for the fun of it. But maybe they were too serious for that?

That score sure would have helped Pentax though. A pity about their choice, no matter if it was corrupt or not.

Guys Pentax would have got zero sales if dxo mark had put up the review. I don't think anyone who wishes to spend that kind of money will check dxomark alone before spending upwards of $10k on a new system.

How would that be possible? No one would spend $7000 on just a camera based on dxo mark score. :p
