It might be the best interchangable lens sigural cam  yet made, but if you need a ts-e, or want an f2.8 uwa, who ya gonna call?

Sigma?
Samyang?
Tamron?
Olympus?
Leica?
The big Z?..

None of the above.

Probably the next rant will be about full-frame high MP cell phones with lens adapters replacing anything in their path.  :o

Like this?

Actually, all of you are wrong.

The Planet Earth is accurately described as an "oblate spheroid" and is neither round nor flat.

In common use, "round" is an alternative to "flat". Then it is either round of flat, by definition.

This will raise computer hacking to a new level with exciting new opportunities.

I sold my 17-40 as, optically at least, the 18-55 IS mk1 was quite a bit better than it, on APS-C obviously.  I don't know that IQ is strictly speaking always a parameter.

It is but on the format it was designed for.

Anyway: the L moniker is for "luxury" according to canon. So if they don't consider ef-s lenses in that category then it may be good thing for people who are paying for them?

The example with the 17-55 and the 24-105; and the 10-22 and the 17-40 shows that you do not really pay less but you do get less in terms of build quality.

"Every single pixel can have a different shutter time! This means the sensor allows a dramatic increase of the dynamic range"

Well, this is true even now. When a pixel saturates, its effective shutter time decreases.

Technology is great, but once we can shoot 4k, 8k or higher video at 30, 60 or more frames per second with all the dynamic range you need and nearly perfect intelligent autofocus capabilities, the stills photographer might become obsolete.  Just grab the best frame and print it as big as you want or need.

Hm..., to replicate a 10 sec night shot, I would need 600 frames...

Yesterday was the day I made the move. I bought the a7 and will soon sell all my DSLR gear. I cannot imagine a reason to go back to DSLR's as long as the weight is nearly double an a7 sized camera and the size is much larger

How much would a 70-200 lens for the a7 weigh and how much smaller would it be?

i would love to go take some pictures but everything is brown and gray, it's dark when i leave in the morning and dark when i get home.

That would not be a problem if you owned an FF camera.  ;)

well thats what i just pointed to, the 6d tamron 24-70 combo and the 70d sigma 18-35 combo

But then the crop combo becomes soft as a jelly fish. How many times do you need to be reminded of this?

the 6d and the 70d have the same resolution

Unfortunately for you, they need lenses.

So the real question is at what point do you print large or screen with enough DPI/PPI to need the extra resolution?

The answer changes quickly. Until recently, most monitors, even the state of the art ones, were 2mp. I work now on 4 to 5mp monitors, and while they are very good, they are not really state of art. I see thing that I have not seen before in my photos, both good and bad (softness, etc.).
