mike emerson: A real musician wouldn't do that. A yob that thinks he is a musician would do that.

Real musicians do all kinds of stuff like that. The two are not linked.

This was a dickhead move. He did kick her on purpose. He shouldn't have done it, obviously, and will likely pay his dues for that. As he should.

The comments here on his musicianship and having no talent are patently ridiculous. Maybe stick to your lane and things you know about?

Brian P Smith: Even if true, the Apple rep was right.. the company is going to make so much money off of the 7/8 plus and the "X" dual camera models that a long term litigation settlement won't have much impact, especially with a 0% tax rate...

Why are you repeating my comment and just making it longer? You said you would stick with Apple if it was cheaper. If you leave it has nothing to do with your ethics or love of country.

So you'll stick with it if it's cheap and bad for the nation. Hmm.

Sdaniella: Sony FE 85mm f1.8
far too much color fringing across entire fov in high contrast boundaries
especially for a long lens
both ooc jpeg and worse in raw
(night fog on lake pic)
jpeg rendered far darker, and high contrast, too wide open at f2 @ ISO 800 for whopping 30 seconds (which usually appears closer to daylight)

shooting narrower apertures could help tame excessive contrast, but not enough to eliminate color fringing

perhaps Sony's 85mm f/1.4 may suffer less color fringing

if not, perhaps not a Sony lens issue, but maybe a Sony A7RIII sensor peculiarity

Not "any more", currently. You don't know that they won't release one next year, or even next week.

The 26-page thread on the Fred Miranda forum on the 40mm f/1.2 (with a hundred or more photos from the lens) would seem to suggest that some still find it relevant in the digital age. Isn't it great how we're all different?

"I'm wrong because '*shrug*'?"

I didn't say you were wrong. Neither of us actually know why. No point two people debating something that neither know the actual answer to. So yes, *shrug*.

Enjoy your seven likes.

You can autofocus the Voigtlander f/1.2 on Sony bodies (the M-Mount version).

Why isn't the Canon f/1.2? Because they made it f/1.4, likely for a variety of reasons that they traded off during design. *shrug*

You've totally missed the point of what I was talking about anyway, had little or nothing to do with the aperture. Sdaniella was talking about aberrations, not aperture.

They really aren't, if you want the DOF and light of f/1.2. The comment was also aimed at Sdaniella, rather than your comment.

I know this is just a fun toy, none of this matters, and fun doesn't have to make sense, but … you know that makes no sense, yes?

Ha. Wonder what you'd think of the Voigtlander 40mm f/1.2 then.

Nope, old(ish) man here. I started on a K1000 too, just haven't become a grumpy cynic.

I know this will be somewhat controversial, and likely cause anger and confusion but …

Use whatever works for you.

It's an impressive result, but what is the loss in FOV when enabling both? Looks pretty significant.

fillkay: There seem to be so many of us looking around for LR 6 replacements, wouldn't it be a good idea for DPR to run a proper comparison test of all the available alternatives?

"and the rest don't do cataloguing"

Capture One does cataloguing.

I should have been clearer. I was talking about SarahTrolla, not Brian.

In reply to:

zavart: It is really strange that DPR has suddenly discovered ...CRISPNESS . It has existed for many years in all Foveon pictures ...even the ones which I took almost 14 years ago with my SD9 . The resolution is NOT everything as Foveon has already proven so many times. Actually in this comparison chart I placed Sigma Quattro H in High resolution mode, It is incredible how well it can compete with Sony especially since it has only 24Mpx sensor and the picture was taken WITHOUT sensor shift !!! Oh I know the colours are not perfect and I still have to spend a lot of time in post processing but for B&W photos...at this price point NOTHING comes close !

"We were discussing" … yep, I was there. You put forward Sigma's cameras as an alternative to A7rIII's pixelshift. And they are. They just don't measure up against the A7rIII in any other mode. You said "how well it competes against the Sony". For "crispness" and colour fidelity, sure. For everything else, nope. That's why it's article-worthy.
