  • All worthy winners, although with Sony top for two categories, and runner up for a third, I'm curious how this comments section will pan out.

    Just imagine the shock horror if the Sony/Zeiss 55/1.8...

  • 1. Even if Canikon is not the "standard" (which I believe they still are will be for practical purposes for a while), we still all know what their output is.

    I'd argue it doesn't matter what...

  • DPReview Staff - possible suggestion:
    When you do these in future, could you also take the same photo with a standard high-end stock camera (eg. Nikon D810 / Canon 5D m3) so we can have something...

  • Really? When the A7/A7R were released last year in Singapore, the A7 w/o kit lens was sold out, also the A7R... many people bought the A7 w/kit lens and then subsequently sold it off as they had...

    I owned the Zeiss 24-70/4 and it was excellent, only decided to sell it to fund the Zeiss 16-70/4 for use on an APS-C body. Colour and micro-contrast were excellent on my...

  • I'd say a fast constant F2.8 zoom would definitely be a welcome lens for e-mount (both APS-C and FF). Olympus and Panasonic have m43 versions (although with the reduced DoF that the half-frame...

  • Commented on Hands-on with Nikon's new D5500 article

    @josh
    Okay, then explain to me where the D400 is...

    /I kid ;-)

  • Sure, but there's a huge jump in cost of lenses when moving from aps-c to FF... well, in the Sony/Zeiss world that is!

    Disclaimer: I also own an A7 ;-)

  • Commented on Hands-on with Nikon's new D5500 article

    @Josh152
    You make a good point, but I stand by my point. Out here in Singapore I hear the argument against using 4 all the time from my Chinese colleagues. It's taken as seriously as the...

  • One of the missing lenses for Sony e-mount... sigh.

    (Disclaimer, I own the 16-70/4 and love it, but sometimes it'd be good to get a little more subject isolation from an F2.8)

  • Commented on Hands-on with Nikon's new D5500 article

    Or more likely they are just skipping the number 4 which sounds like death in Chinese and Japanese, and is considered unlucky (like 13 in some western cultures). Most Japanese manufacturers skip...

  • Commented on Nikon D750 Review preview

    @NowHereThis
    You're just given two extremely rude replies. Genuine nasty and snide remarks. Welcome to another ignore list.

    @Riman
    Yes, basically. Mirrorless cameras effectively 'run live view'...

  • Did Sony once sell you a duff Walkman in 1986 or something?

  • @HowaboutRAW

    Why do you assume I haven't used, or don't still use a rangefinder? Did I say that somewhere?

    Perhaps better for you not to make such quick assumptions.

  • @HowaboutRAW

    How about this: http://camerasize.com/compare/#213,548

    - Cheaper ($2495 vs. $6999)
    - Lighter by 20% (489g vs. 585g)
    - Has a better...
