About me:

!! Excited to be buy a Sony a7S II soon! I can't wait! Only 9 days more, maybe! Ack! :D haha! (Oct. 7, 2015; weds.)
Update: Oh my GAHHH! I just got the a7S II about 6 hours ago, at around 4:30 p.m., after work! Ahhhh!!! I'm SOOO excited for this low light monster! It is smaller, and kind of cramping my hands up compared to the D800, which fits my hands nicely. But I'll be making the best of it. "Sacrifices..." :D (Oct. 19, 2015; mon.)

I now am waiting for my first full-frame DSLR! It is the Nikon D800! I can't wait to play with/use it! :) (Sept. 12, 2013; thurs.)
Update: It arrived at 7:08 p.m. on Friday the 13th. :D 2013. Oh boy, two 13s. Does this bode well for me? Yes! I got a full-frame camera. Will it have left sensor focusing problems? I certainly hope not.

Looking into digital camera capture. Fuji S5Pro's dynamic range is really high up there for me. Seems like 'the look' more closely resemble film's ability to keep highlights. Hope that's the case. I just HATE that digital look. 'Crossing my fingers'. HA! ... Update: Woot! I'm getting the S5 Pro. Yippee! My first dSLR. Should be FUN! (Sept. 8, 2007; sat.) --shipment has arrived-WOOHOO!!-(Sept. 11, 2007; tues.)

WongFeiHong: Coming from Canon I have to say this camera has the WoW factor. The spec sheet is just incredible... Can't see anything about weather sealing unless I am missing something.

I have to say well done and kudos to Sony team!!!!

Go read their full specs on their site. They have weather-sealing.

Androole: Sony's not kidding around. Looks truly awesome, as befits a $4500 price tag.

Kind of ominous that the extensive press release still doesn't mention anything about weather-sealing, though, no? Sony really needs to recognize that pros want and need robust cameras.

Check their full specification. It is weather-sealed:

"Reliable dust- and moisture-resistant design

Enjoy carefree shooting in tough environments, with comprehensive dust- and moisture-resistance41 measures that help guard against moisture and dust. Protection includes sealing around buttons, dials, media jack cover, and enclosure edges featuring tongue-and-groove joints for double shielding to tightly interlock panels and components."

HSHN: £4,500???

Holy sh*t . Probably 20-30 pieces will be sold :-P

Refresh the browser. It now states $4,500. Someone corrected me on that, too. :)

Retzius: If they get the AF right this could be a real shot across the bow of Canon and Nikon. Nice work!

You mean Canon and Nikon, right? They're not shooting across their own bow. :)

huyzer: $4,500 Whoa.
I like that they added "... touch focusing on the rear LCD screen for easy selection of, and shifting focus towards a desired focus point or subject."

OH! Thank you! I'll make the correction. Thanks for that.

Wow, what a spectacular event. I love it. I will have to make it out here once in my life. And 2:08, Wenmei. Woohoo. :D

Hahaha. Love it, Wenmei, the frugal suggestion.... and I love that amusing picture of you in the umbrella hat. :D

I love the look produced by this "garbage lens"! Reminds me of Pictorialism.

When I was just starting photography, I read to stick with one focal length. The focal length that was recommended was a 50mm. Personally, I think that's a good suggestion. :) I do love the 50.

Favorable Exponynt: Pick up a cheap Nikon 1 AW1 Dude. It's a no brainer and you can take it on your board with you.

@ventur
Out of curiosity, when you say you "lost an SD card... because of leaking". Do you mean the card was physically lost? Or was it killed electronically/short circuited due to the water ingress?

@FLruckas
Thanks for the heads-up! I did a quick Amazon and B&H review. LOTS of reports back on leaking. What a hunk of junk! Shame on Nikon for not warranty repairing. I'm a Nikon fan, too. They should get their damn act together and just eat it like Samsung did. Otherwise, how are we to trust them on other issues. For shame, Nikon!

In reply to:

Matsu: Certainly the trend is towards making lenses much larger in order to have sharper coverage wide open over the entire image circle. The high end primes are all adopting this trend, examples include Nikon's 105E, the Zeiss Otii, or all the Sigma Art lenses which perhaps kicked off the aiptics size race.

They must figure that primes are now specialist instruments and anyone buying them is going to put up with the size and weight for whatever they're doing.

Most people are going to be better off with the best quality 70-200 f/2.8 they can afford, which have versatility, robust build, stabilization, and lightening fast AF on their side.

That said, in the right conditions, you can get a special look from a fast prime that's a bit different from the pro zooms.

I'm all for the specialist, fast primes. I don't mind weight nor size if it get beautiful wide-open shots.

No mention if it's waterproof. But I do recall the other Thetas to have a tube for waterproofing, so I think you could use those, maybe.

Edit: I guess it'd be tough to waterproof the output ports. :)

:) Oh, yes. I like Steve McCurry. The benefit is that his images are also beautiful, and I like 'em. :D Haha.

huyzer: I love #1, 4, and 6.

I agree with you. That's why I really am not into HDR type photos. I like reality. :) But when it goes toward something like #1, where the purpose is "Special Effects" and obvious, I appreciate the skill and look to it. :)

I am definitely curious what #5 is about.

That is so interesting we picked out exact opposites as far as ones that stood out for us. I picked #1, 4, and 6 for the visuals. I guess my mind just tends towards the visuals; makes sense as I'm not much of a reader. :D haha.
