  • Commented on Sony Alpha a7 II Review preview

    Totally ridiculous Nikon can blow Sony away for noise from basically an identical sensor, and has...

  • Commented on Olympus OM-D E-M5 II Review preview

    How does it stand out? I have the E-M5 and don't think it stands out. Sure this is overall better in most areas, but I see nothing ground breaking.

  • Commented on Olympus OM-D E-M5 II Review preview

    Clear lack of reading and comprehension skills shown by many on this forum. Where did I say anything about resolution, there's a lot more to a sensor than pixel count. 16MP if fine for such a small...

  • Commented on Olympus OM-D E-M5 II Review preview

    Why not down sample the 64MP RAWs to 40MP rather than post them at 64MP?

    While I can many improvements over the original E-M5, IQ has barely budged and this is my main bugbear with the m4/3...

  • They are not implying that at all.

  • Clearly they just mean the glass not including the polarization foils. You want the highest transmittance glass as your starting point.

  • Why wait, Oly has had the superb 45 f/1.8 for year now.

  • Nice enough video but we have zero proof of the tracking ability. What is the keeper rate, where are the 100% crops of the full size RAWs? Show me those and I would be far more impressed if it...

  • The fan boys will never tell you about Sony's rank amateur and frankly pathetic customer service. Cameras to Sony are still just another electronic device like a toaster.

    I'll take a clunky mirror...

  • I'd wait and see how the IQ compares of the two sensors. If the new 24MP sensor offers some tangible improvements in DR, read noise, colour accuracy then it'd be my pick.

  • Ha Ha, you want to put a 150-450 on a FF mirrorless. You dreamin'. Mirrorless is useless with big glass. I'd rather have a DSLR any day for sports and action with big glass. Mirrorless is fine for...

  • Yes I meant is it Sony tech sesnor? I find it hard to beleive they couldn't have used this esnor on 7D II and includied DPAF it is there own sensor.

  • And I beleive Canon have improve low ISO read noise. This should be able to push shadows fairly well. It might not be as good as a Sony sensopr, but I think for there target audience thjey have...

  • Who said anything about DPAF. Talking DR, low ISO read noise, colour depth. Yeah do some reading next time.

  • The overall DR is the same as the 5D III, 11.8 stops, but it's low ISO read noise is apparently much better something like 1.5-2 stops better than 1D X, but this has come at expense of high ISO...

  • Yeah, sure if you want to use the ergonomically challenged A7R with it's myriad of issues, poor handling with longer glass and lack of lenses sure that's a good option

  • Yeah let's use the 20 f/2.8 as the example to bash Canon with. The 24/28/35 IS lenses are all excellent as well as what Richard mentioned and also we have the 24 f/3.5 TS--E II which is a stellar...

  • Indeed Juck, but stello obviously doesn't need empirical data to draw a ridiculously long bow.

  • Still soldiering on without an EVF option I see. Given Samesung's propensity to copy I'm surprised they didn't use Sonny's brilliant pop-up EVF idea from the RX100III. 28MP crop sensor with camera...
