On article Comparison Review: Sony FE 50mm F1.4 ZA vs 55mm F1.8 ZA (213 comments in total)

The 55mm f 1.8 might be the better buy when you consider the price/performance ratio.

I think its a great idea. However, they need to find a quicker way to fix the strap to the backpack. Their implementation with the clasp will take too long to get on and off. Users who need to take their backpacks on and off frequently will fumble with it behind their back and will get annoyed real quick.

While they deserve it, I'm sure they are not the only company that does this.

Very nice camera but ISO 1638400 is a joke.

Specs say body material is magnesium alloy. I highly doubt that, when the 60D and 70D were plastic with aluminum chassis.

Mike Fewster: It looks rather similar to the Sony semi mirror design that they use in their A mount cameras that also combines mirrorless with a semi mirror and pdaf focussing. So similar that it is a bit hard to see what the excitement is about or why it should get a patent.

Not really that similar.

how consistent was the autofocus?

joe6pack: Looking at the pictures of sliding window with and without distortion correction. It seems the camera is over-correcting? It is quite obvious on the right side of the picture.

The notes say that some of the images were corrected for distortion manually as there is no profile yet.

villagranvicent: The photography world is mourning with the news. As long as they don't discontinued their TVs, laundry machines and convections ovens I am fine.

They will be made in china or mexico by Chinese manufacturers that bought the licenses for the famous brand names.

Rumor has it that Samsung will leave the U.S. television market within a year or two just like all the other Asian manufacturers.

evogt500: For some reason, I have a feeling that a lot of users are going to complain about Autofocus issues. Don't know why I am thinking that.

But I love my 70D... even if it might have AF issues.

scott_mcleod: So, no AFMA? It's a real shame if that feature is still missing (the 50D was the last XXD body to have it, right?)

70D has it.

"The a63000 is also capable of 4K video capture at up to 100 Mbps. The camera uses a 20MP (6K) region of the sensor to offer 2.4x oversampled 4K video with full pixel readout, and no pixel binning. Videographers should be able to expect sharp, low noise footage, even in low light since almost the entire sensor is sampled."

A63000?

it would have been interesting if they turned the sensor 90 degrees like the original Pen (ie portrait style). Useful, no. But interesting and it would differentiate it from all the other Olympus mirrorless cameras.

Wow, that's actually a pretty good deal (ex-zr3000) considering it has a slightly larger 1/1.7 sensor.

In reply to:

Greg VdB: If the new 7-bladed aperture means an improvement on bokeh (look her for instance how "special" the old one is: http://www.pbase.com/gbleek/image/37881395), I fully intend to buy one. The improved focus ring should now make it a viable option for astrophotography.

Andrea, I agree, and because there is no hard stops on the focus ring or a distance scale. it will be more difficult to find infinity compared to micromotor or USM.
