Elljustin: Is this natively compatible with regular Canon lenses? Sorry I don't know anything about their mirrorless lineup.

No, you need an adapter, but it is only $100, that is not bad.

I love two things about it, skin tones, and the lens is sharp wide open to extreme corners.

On article Hasselblad to announce 'game changer' next week (460 comments in total)

Let me guess, a Sony a7R II inside another Hasselblad case, with big ugly (H) for only $12000.
Building a new mirrorless system and mount is not easy.

bakhtyar kurdi: In theory, it looks really good, but in real life, the PS has very limited use, the only situations I think of is still life and product photography, and in those situations DR is not important, because you have control over the light, for landscape, any movement in tree branches, or even the grass will rune the picture, instead, just use a 3 time longer lens and combine 4 pictures to get a very large and clean picture for the FL you want, there is many good softwares to stitch them, like PS and Gegapan.

I am following the technology.

Now the difference between the Hasselblad , the Olympus, and this new Penatx is only in the software, the hardware, all of them doing exact the same thing.
Now what the K1 do in the software to prevent ugly effects of moving parts of the subject, is by ignoring any moving part in the subject, so they use only a single shot information for moving parts, and apply multi shots only for stable parts of the subject, so if you imagine that you can use this technology for sports or any kind of moving subjects, you are wrong.
Also Olympus and Hasselblad can update their cameras firmware to do that if they really want to.

Nothing?
Yes I am keeping my Nikon, even if the body is slightly better than Nikon, the whole system is way behind Nikon and Canon, studio tests is totally different from the real life photography.
I am not attacking any brand, but the camera body is a small part of the system.

This is good news, it was sad for me to see other camera companies died, like Contax, Yashica, Minolta (sony now)
First excellent lenses started from Germany, USA, then Japan, now I expect a good future for the young Korean Samyang, if they price their new lenses right, will encourage new comers to Sony.

Iloveaircraftnoise: Does anybody on here actually take photos?

This website has dynamic range paranoia.

DR is very important if you shoot landscape.

Front-runner?
For DR the d500 in identical to d7200, no difference at all.
For high ISO noise, if you look at JPEG, d500 looks better, but RAW they are the same, probably the d500 is 1/4stop better, and that is due to the higher MP in d7200.
So the only improvement is the JPEG engine in the d500.

What is wrong with their (now old) Tamron 90 2.8 VC?
it is still the king of Macro lenses at 90-105 range, smallest and lightest and most affordable.
The only thing I think of is for some reason it is not selling very well, marketing problem, probably people mix it with older versions.

It looks to me that the the 15-30 is the exact copy of the Tamron 15-30, nothing wrong with that, the Tamron is an amazing lens, can someone confirm this?

Can the built-in flash control off camera flashes or not yet?
My first mirrorless camera (Olympus EPL-1) was able to do that in 2010

On article History Repeating: Olympus PEN-F Review (1070 comments in total)

I will buy one when the price drops to $280 Canadian after 8 months.
I see no reason to replace my a6000 that I paid only $329 Canadian (open box) for this toy.

YiannisPP: Take my advice you guys, just think for a moment...these are extremely high ISO 42MP files shot on a cloudy day you are looking at 100%! What did you expect exactly, that Santa dropped by mistake a camera from the future whose 42MP pics shot at ISO 5000 on a cloudy day look great at pixel level? Wake up!
And Merry Christmas!

and what about 100 and 640 ISOs? are they any better?

bakhtyar kurdi: The camera used for those photos are broken, the sensor is one of the best in the market, the Zeiss lens also should be up to expectations, why those pictures are not even close to 10 yrs old Canon 5D?
Do those guys even checked the pictures before they put it online?
Only a few pictures is enough to realize that there is something wrong with this copy of the camera, or did they shoot in 5mp low quality JPEG?

Know what? I don't know, I see.

Just imagine : someone posted that image on the Portrait and People Photography forum and asked for help, my first portrait, need advise.

Not bad for the first time.
Washed out
Over exposed
Flat lighting
boring poses
just keep practicing

Poweruser: "Faster AF with adapted lenses"...? I dont get it. The LAEA4 Adapter comes with its own AF system. And other lenses than A-mount will not AF on the a7. So what is the article talking about? Better performance with the LAEA3 adapter? If thats the case, why not write exactly that?

There is no AF adapter for Nikon, even a single one, unless I slept too long.

surlezi: Beautiful images Rishi.

However I'm very surprised with 1C3A3915-Edit.jpg . The first with the blonde model.
It's very posterized and grainy; it can't be a 200 ISO picture, can it ?

It is 200 ISO pushed 6 stops, so equal to 12800 in best sensors, and 51200 ISO for Canon sensors, just my guessing .
The shot probably exposed for the bright sun light and pushed many stops to lighten the shadows.

Nick932: I loved and miss my D800e. Due to lack of image stabilisation, mirror slap and curtain movement it was impossible to get a clean sharp low light image. I wonder if this is possible with this camera.

No, not possible, just wait for a better camera
But I remember I did one sharp picture with D800
