From what I understood looking at everything made for cinema, they're pretending to sell everything at 10-50 times more their price just because they think every person working for cinema is freaking rich.
Just think: how much would ever cost to produce such lenses? Think also at the other Canon Cinema Zoom Lenses with astronomical pricing, think at the bolts and knobs (which are just plain stupid pieces of metal) made by RED as accessories for their rigs, they're as expensive as if they were made out of solid gold...well they aren't!
Actually, considering that OSX and Linux are very similar under the hood (both are flavors of unix)
But MacOSX is BSD and Linux is, well, Linux - the unix versions have split decades ago and are often very different, just because they both use a forward slash for directories and run gcc doesn't mean much for porting software, esp. if it relies on hardware features like usb.
The DxO lens corrections are an obvious strength... what else?
Better NR with maintained sharpness, compared to Aperture at least.
So, lens correction and noise reduction in DxO and then Aperture (or Photoshop) for everything else?
I have 2 OS, windows and linux and use darktable, raw therapee and gimp mainly.
Lens correction data I could locate for these programs mainly refer to distortion correction and is not as extensive as the DxO offering.
Excepting the price, of course. The old version has dropped to $3,000, the new version will be at least $3500.QuoteWhat is this lens? I thought they already had a lens that was 120-300 2.8 with OS? I have the 120-300 2.8 non OS and I know there was already a newer version out? I'm very confused....
Same new version with a very few changes...
^ Do you really expect corporations to code their software to work with Linux, representing a whopping under 2% of computer users?
Anyways, if sigma would have had this accessory years ago it would have saved their brand an awful lot of hurt over bad AF!
Well, yes. They could easily have used a cross platform library for writing the application and then it would have worked everywhere. I am tired of companies offering software for Windows and Mac OS alone. It smacks of laziness.
it smacks of good business sense, you don't waste money and stay in business.
I think what JohnnyWashngo is trying to say is, it likely could have been done in a fully cross-platform for little to no additional cost (money/personal/etc). Not sure if he's completely correct or not, but it very well may be correct since the only cross-platform stuff I've developed has been Java, and that has it's own quirks and issues.
If the cost had actually be very minimal, it might very well have been nice to release it. However, I'm sure some enterprising person will sniff the USB packets and reverse engineer the protocol. Then all of us linux geeks (well, ok, I use Windows for Lightroom. I'm sorry ) can put together our own application as we will.
Which Linux distribution, and what about Android for tablets?
I have just - I guess - simple question. Do you think that for example Canon 17-40/4L, which is (if I have right information) for 10 years on the market - will be still same? I mean if you like to compare lens made in 2003 and lens made in 2013 - would they still perform same (IQ)? I am just thinking, that even the lens is for a long time on the market, that company still have to inovate and using new components. So the lenses, even the old ones, should be changing in their performance.
What do you think? Thx.
Can the MK3 do MFA by focal length/lens or do you just mean that it should be more accurate out of the box?Dustin, have you run this through any AF testing? I just got mine for X-mas and was running foCal on it, getting a -5 at 24mm and +5 at 70mm -- I've got to re-run when I have time because I stupidly forgot to shut off the VC, but I was sort of surprised that it was off in that manner.
I'm a prime-fiend, but this was supposed to win my heart back to the zoom side of things, so my hopes are high; I have gotten ZERO real world chance to use this as everyone (myself included) is sick.
Do you do MFA on any of your zooms?
I MFA'd the lens (although on MK2 I can only do focal length, which I did at at 70mm). I ended up setting mine at a +5. I will be picking up a MK3 in this calendar year and look forward to being able to dial it at a couple of settings. I've been happy with the sharpness after the adjustment.
The 5d3 can have separate MFA values for the wide end and tele end, and it can extrapolate somewhat for the middle range. Since wide vs tele can cause some focus shift sometimes, you can get more accurate focusing.
You cannot edit that field, but it changes (automatically) with your post count - more posts means a 'better' camera. It's just a coincidence that my post count equates to a 1D X and I actually have a 1D X.
Montana may be my favorite place to visit. Been several times now as a old college buddy is border patrol out of whitefish. Be sure to drive out to polebridge for pizza, seriously its worth it. Plus the drive is spectacular and once you get there you realize having beer and pizza in the middle of nowhere is pretty special. As others have suggested the 10-22 is a no brainer on crop. Rent that plus one of the extenders and you should be set.
