  • I believe ADC is on-sensor with Sony et-al and off-sensor with Canon. Which explains everything, I suppose.

    Edit: As stated by BarnET above. No idea why that post wasn't showing up when I replied.

  • I think you'll find that's a 'troll'...

  • I'm fairly certain you're correct about that; my M3 doesn't go past 70mm! The RX100M1/2 lens is a 28-100mm f/5-f/13 equivalent in FF terms and the Q7 + 07 lens is a 30-90 f/12 equivalent on full...

  • The one M9 with sensor plaque I've seen looked nothing like this, it appeared more like the cover glass had come away from the sensor over about half of its area.

  • I don't understand your point. Yes, stopping down that far will reduce detail due to diffraction. But what has that got to do with this issue? This isn't a photographic advice thread on the forum,...

  • If having widespread private gun ownership doesn't increase gun crime, then can somebody please explain to me why the US has BY FAR the highest per-capita gun crime rates in the developed...

  • @mpgxsvcd What has your opinion on good photography got to do with this camera? Sure, it might not be optimal in most circumstances to shoot at f/32 but we can presume that since they put an f/32...

  • What? Because they're almost universally GOOD, so we can stop obsessing over the minutiae of difference between competing models and focus (har har) on taking pictures?

  • Even Sony (Tamron) lenses are pretty good these days. I bought the crappy 28-75 2.8 rather than the 24-70 Zeiss, because I couldn't see a great deal of difference. Zeiss' bokeh is a bit nicer than...

  • Am I going mad? All the comments here are really positive, but to my eyes, this looks dreadful. In most of the wide shots, this _camera_ has worse IQ than my _smartphone_ in broad daylight. Even...

  • I don't think it's got anything to do with proofreading. 'Off of' is widely used and most likely has been since long before Shakespeare did so. It might not be the most eloquent phraseology and you...

  • Commented on Sony SLT-A77 II Review preview

    I've just traded in my a99, a55, NEX-5N and RX100 for an a7II, a6000 and RX1000 III. As a committed MF user (well, sometimes I use AF, but usually just the centre point) I'm probably not the...

  • Oops! Well, Olympus, Nikon, what difference does it make so far as video goes? :P

    Panasonic, Sony and Samsung have got everybody else whipped for video right now... Canon, where are you?

  • What is with 4K video but at a frame-rate so low it's useless...?

    First the GoPro Hero3+ Black, then the CM1, now this. Just so illiterate salespeople can shout 'ITZ GOT 4-KAYS!!!!!111!!!111!'...

  • The G3 is probably too old to be relevant for review now, I guess. The newer LGs have the same IQ as the G2 anyway (I have a G2, my partner has a G3, I'm pretty sure they use the same sensor/lens...

  • *Insert obligatory whinge about the Note 4's absence here*

    *Inset obligatory whinge about another 'favourite device' being absent*

    On a more serious note, it'll be interesting to see how good the...

  • Which would be the wrong direction for Nikon. You can't please everybody, and I suspect developing and testing two sets of mechanical components would mean those prices would have to be pushed...
