  • I seriously doubt that there are any full time pros that would go to an adapter based solution for all their lenses just to get 20 FPS…

    Pros use what makes consistant and predictably good images....

  • I think this article outlines why, at least for now, Nikon and Canon will remain the top choices for sports pros. Despite what the Sony fans say, the A9 is NOT going to be the death knell of the...

  • In what way is it a D5/1Dx challenger? Because Sony said so? Because it has a high frame rate? Doesn’t the EM-1 from 2013 have a similar frame rate to a D5/1Dx? And there were none of these on the...

  • I agree… I had an A7 in the past and I often wished it were bit bigger. It could accommodate a bigger battery (much needed…), have a better grip, and balance with something besides the few small...

  • The more I think this camera over the more I am confused. Who is this camera meant for? They say sports shooters and the specs confirm this, but considering the whole ecosystem, I doubt many sports...

  • As a former Sony A7 now happily back to Nikon user, this camera looks promising. It finally has the nice little ergonomic features that make pro cameras so enjoyable. Also. if the battery life...

  • If we’re talking about total light, we should take into account actual transmission of lenses, vignetting (as much as a few stops in the corners with the f1.2/1.4 lenses), the fact that lenses are...

  • “Slow native lenses do not take full advantage of camera's sensor size”

    Still touting that strange logic that the maximum F-stop of available lenses is indicative of the IQ potential for an entire...

  • I wholeheartedly agree. While I commend DPR for diligently trying to gather as much data as possible, it still just isn’t enough to compare the full breadth of a camera’s abilities.

    I am a...

  • I’ve read and absorbed all of the article over the years, but I’m still not convinced.

    If we are going to compare these variables, why not more? Why not quality of coatings and its effect on...

  • Tom_A, I agree, I’m confused as well.

    It seems to me like DPR has a seemingly endless bag of equivalency equations on hand to back up some strange point against conventional wisdom that they are...

  • There isn’t anything wrong in this article, but it is so far down the theoretical rabbit hole, I’m not sure how relevant it is. It only describes shooting at the longest handheld shutter speed in...

  • Finally, my prayers have been answered… sort of. I wish more manufacturers were interested in making compact (for the focal length), lower specced, and (hopefully) optically high quality lenses....

  • Commented on article Sony SLT a99 II Review

    lhkjacky,

    That makes sense. I think that is preference, that was something that really bugged me about my old A7:

    Personally, I’m not sure I want to see my final image in the viewfinder. I like...

  • Commented on article Sony SLT a99 II Review

    Playing the devil’s advocate here, but I’m trying to get an answer too: Whats the point of the SLT concept?

    Its like mirrorless without the size/adaptability advantage (The two big advantages of...

  • Dear Nikon,

    While we’re on the subject of compacts, please follow up the Coolpix A. I still use mine every day.

    Or at least let me buy new one. Mine is missing everything that is not attached the...

  • Ive said it before and I’l say it again about BVW’s work:

    Great concept, well thought out execution, but why the heavy Photoshop work to make it look like CGI or a Photoshop render? Its a mystery...

  • Two things:

    1. Perhaps I’m being naive, but why would someone pay $$$ for a photography tour from someone who isn’t a local or some kind of expert on the area? A tourist paying a more experienced...

  • Word from a retouching professional:

    Fake bokeh either looks terrible or takes way to long to do correctly. It doesn’t fool anyone, makes our brains feel wierd, and lends a CGI/Photoshop art sheen...

  • You know what would be really cool? If this partnership actually worked out well for both parties. Perhaps Leica can produce something quality at a reasonable cost and ditch some of their nice but...
