On article The whole nine yards: Canon 35mm F1.4L II USM review (318 comments in total)

Looking at the charts and comparisons.... I'm not seeing a difference that merits the cost/weight/size hike over the original or the Sigma. But if you want the absolute best there is no substitute I guess.

sportyaccordy: If nothing else, this camera is a clear demonstration of why there are next to no new players in the ILC market. I could see Google or Apple really revolutionizing autofocus algorithms, but the payback on a camera that would really haul the mail across all metrics- i.e. the NX1- is just not there.

Not necessarily. Apple has had it's fair share of duds too.

NX mount had a decent amount of lenses. In many ways they had better lenses than APS-C E mount. That was not the problem. If anything Samsung should have went the other way. Had they beat Sony to the punch with a FF MILC there would have been a lot more interest, especially way back when they launched the mount.

You guys might as well stop doing these if you are just going to write a couple of paragraphs and link to old reviews. We can all search for old reviews on our own. The quality of these Throwback Thursday posts has dropped tremendously.

In reply to:

sportyaccordy: 4.x can't come soon enough. Min shutter speed, custom button for EVF/LCD, adapted PDAF AF-C worth using please.

Sony needs to release the Mk III before people can talk about buying it. Personally I don't see it coming any time soon.

In reply to:

Miki Nemeth: I hope that improved PDAF means that the A7ii works excellently now with the Metabones IV adapter and Canon 100-400L. If only A7 cameras had touch-screen.

That is improved PDAF from FW 2.x I think. You won't see an improvement if you have the previous 3.x.

In reply to:

JoaoPedroAB: The Sony 7 II has a very noisy (acoustic) shutter. Anyone knows if the new firmwares (the previous ones) allow electronic shutter? Thanks

Have you switched on EFCS? It's pretty much the only way to operate these cameras. Full shutter sounds like someone biting into a crisp apple.

The composition and content of the photos is amazing, but I can't help but feel left down by the image quality. Maybe they needed a little more post processing? For example I think the 2nd picture would be helped a bit by raising the shadows and saturation. And the 4th picture with the portrait of that dude just doesn't have the crispness I like. Some of the shots are amazing all around, like the camel one and the woman's silhouette, but I think there's still a gap.

In reply to:

sportyaccordy: III is the best value. Fast lens, Fn menu, viewfinder. Hard to beat unless you really need 4K.

Oh wow, it shoots full resolution at 24 FPS? That is pretty impressive.

This will make it easier for Canon service to reject gray market bodies.

sportyaccordy: I wish you guys would talk more about these cameras in a modern context. I don't really care what your thoughts on it were when it came out. What made it significant? What was its impact? What were your personal experiences with it? Context is everything.

If it's not a significant product, why make a TBT about it?

I knew I wasn't losing it- look at what they did for previous TBTs.

No disrespect meant to them at all but it seems clear they have dialed back the effort they put into this. Personally I find camera history fascinating.... the explosive development, hits and misses, etc etc... it's really cool. Bring back the full format!
