If Canon did this, DXO would implode from having no one left to pick on.
They might have to start testing cameras rather than sensors.
i think the new 16-35 f4 might be a tad sharper over the frame but not by a significant amountI agree with you about the 24-70 2.8 on a crop sensor. You won't be able to get as shallow depth of field with a crop señor as with a ff. I think that's the point he's tying to make that you geting more like a f4 depth of field compared to a 2.8 on ff. But yes you still get the light of a 2.8 lens on a crop sensor
Yes, I assumed he was referring to the greater depth of field on a smaller sensor not that it transmits less light. But, he didn't specifically say that as far as I can recall. I'm pretty confident that Northrup understands that.
I didn't realize that the ef-s 17-55 f2.8 was so highly regarded. I may pick one of those up if I can get a good deal on a refurb. Seems like it would be sharper then my 17-40 or 24-105 on the 7D2, which is not particularly forgiving of poor glass. f2.8 vs. f4 would be icing on the cake. I wonder how it compares to the new EF 16-35 f4 IS on a crop?
I really don't get the hatred towards Tony Northrup. He makes good videos in my opinion and tries to be as unbiased as possible. He publicly admits when he's wrong. He's also quite level headed and the constant victim of internet trolls. He's just a camera geek doing what he loves doing. The funny thing is I never see people having a go at Kelby or Polin who just talk crap for 99% of their videos. Yes, I don't trust Dxomark either and think that their data doesn't represent reality, but can we stop bashing Northrup for a moment.Don't even get me started on polin....
(As always, I post these hoping for a proper group skewering. I eagerly await Neuro's rebuttal web-series, entitled "I am the anti-Tony", but it hasn't happened yet.)
To rebut, I'd first have to watch. There are many things higher on my priority list than viewing Northrup's videos. Watching paint dry and picking lint from my umbilicus are two things that come to mind...
So, a 7DII with a 55-250 STM comes pretty close to a 7DII with a 70-200/2.8L IS II. But...put that 70-200 II on a 5DIII and the IQ will soundly trump the same lens on the 7DII.
Surapon would take the business end of a large silicone spatula from a discount store, use a blowtorch or even a gas range to melt it into the perfect shape, then Velcro it to his flash.
But for the rest of us mere mortals, this looks pretty cool.
well it certainly looks like they hit the ground running with the nx1...
Right now, Samsung is eating everyone's lunch in the TV market.
Given their hold on the phone market, it makes you wonder about if Samsung applies itself properly to the digital camera market (especially the ILC/DSLR segment), what will the company achieve?
Will Samsung start to eat everyone's lunch there?
After their debut of the NX-1, maybe it is Samsung that Canon and Nikon need to be afraid of and not Sony.
The question is ... Why bother? Its a declining market, a share of a ever smaller pie does not justify spending billions to develop new products and lenses.
Maybe their market forecast is different from Sony's
Why did Sony buy Minolta? Anyway...
Maybe Samsung has a vision of people having a "Samsung Household."
Consider that Samsung also provide more of the other appliances you see in a house - fridge, dishwasher - why wouldn't they also want to offer a serious digital camera?
