  • This, absolutely.  Mumbai is a very international city, at least near Colaba. Bangalore is tech central, although there are now so many such sites throughout India you trip over them. Spend time ...
  • You are fortunate to be constraining your travels. Two weeks in India is barely enough time to scratch the surface of a small area, much less the entire country. Remember that India moves at its ...
  • Eye-AF refers to the ability to detect and lock on to the subject's eye, something that requires a fairly high resolution sensor to do well. You're thinking if Canon's ...
  • Only if the manufacturer thinks it needs to do so. Lenses already communicate in somewhat this way.  It varies from manufacturer to manufacturer, but some lenses have full internal modeling of ...
  • J A C S pointed out that the EF mount is a FF mount - as is the f-mount. As such, the mount standards include not only diameter but the standoff distance between mount and sensor plane. This ...
  • Things get more complicated as your sensor size increases, especially if you're chasing maximum image quality.
  • It's a matter of data path and pixel circuity complexity as well. This technique requires 2 differently gained amps per pixel plus 2 data buses per pixel. Other techniques would exact similar ...
  • I've annoyed you. The point here in our discussion, as I see it, is whether a FF A6000 sized body could be made.  The answer is yes.  The question is whether it would be a good idea in general, and ...
  • They already have been made.  The A6000 EVF is quite small...as is the viewfinder on many u4/3 cameras. Cameras with decent EVFs, like the G85 and XT-2. are not much bigger.  A huge compromise in ...
  • Gives new meaning to the phrase "pancake lens" :) .
  • Ah. With purpose.  The mount size and standard for both is the same. The FF sensor is a bit shoehorned in, but it does fit.  My point here is that Sony COULD make an A6000 sized FF body, but it ...
  • Between you, me, and the lamppost, this is exactly what I think Nikon has always thought about DX...a temporary workaround until FF sensors became cheap enough.  Trouble is, that took 15 years and ...
  • And if you read my comment, you'll note that I said that the elimination of the mirror box definitely reduces the depth of the camera body (secondarily, its height), but that full size reduction ...
  • You're correct, JACS, and I forgot that - EF and f-mount are full-frame mount standards, so the lens bodies will typically be greater in diameter than they could be, even though the lens elements ...
  • Very clearly targeting best-in-class performance for both lenses and body. Nikon traditionally has released its new technologies top-down, and these bodies are clearly taking aim at their D850 and ...
  • But this is at the heart of this entire discussion, is it not? Theoretical mirrorless size advantages accrue only when the lens and body are optimized for each other. The EF-M mount is a more ...
  • Replied in JND for noise
    I'm being a bit glib, but I'm alluding to the luminance component of a signal being the prime carrier of resolution and edge transition information - and the Bayer CFA transmitting greens most ...
  • Replied in JND for noise
    Stated otherwise - ya gotta get green to get acute? I guess I'm a little confused in the parsing of your comment...many dim light situations have a large amount of reddish light (think dim bulbs ...
  • Well, at least you can mount Sony's APS-C lenses on your A7 and use it in crop mode...that will save the weight of FF lenses.  I suspect that what we're all worried about here is that the only the ...
  • If you're tired of carrying around "all that stuff" with your D7000, you will also tire of carrying around "all that stuff" with an A7...all that stuff being lenses, of which an A7's lenses are ...
