If it were a 36MP or higher Sony sensor, I'd pre-order it on the day it was announced.

If it were only the 24MP sensor, I'd stick with the A7r.

I'm in the opposite camp – I will be really bummed if the 5D4 has more than 24MP.

Well, I don't care if the high-resolution version is the 5D4, the 3D, the 1Dxs or the 1Dz, but I want it.

You can always shrink a high-resolution image, or shoot in sRAW, but you can't extract more detail out of a low-resolution image.

Yup, and maybe true pixel binning for very high ISO no noise images as well. Canon needs to put something out there that's new.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.
I used to hate math but then I realised decimals have a point.

I shoot both systems and with each one, there's something to love. I did preorder the d810 because for what I shoot, it will come in handy and make my life easier. There will always be the nikon vs. canon debate. I still prefer canon's glass over nikon's but the DR of nikon camera can't be beat. If anyone is interested in my d800e, feel free to pm me.

85 ~ 85 canon costs less, probably a little better optically

The Canon 85 1.8 has less CA and much faster AF. The Nikkor however is noticeably sharper wide open.

And pretty soon the new Sigma will crush them both so I don't think it really matters much. ;)

You would have to be exceptionally unlucky to get struck by the Sigma Lottery four times with an Art lens.

They are truly spectacular and I have heard very few complaints. Plus, with the USB dock, you can fine-tune the focusing planes yourself.

Went through a few copies of the 18-35 Art, bought a USB dock, AND even sent one of the copies to Sigma for adjusting and did not get it to work. I've heard a good mix of complaints and good things from their other Art lenses.

Notice that the $450 F1.8 is in along the $2000 lenses on the most demanding DSLR made as far as ressolution goes......

Wait really? I mean I love my EF 85, and yes I am sure it's AF speed is tops, but less C.A.?
The Nikon must really be purple if this is true. :oops:

I have the Nikon 85 f1.8 G and it is in fact slower when focusing yet has better optics than the Canon 85 f1.8. However I haven't noticed the "G" lens being better or worse than the "EF" version when comparing chromatic aberrations so if it's sunny tomorrow I'll take the D800/85 1.8G and see how it does.

My sister, the professional baker and cake decorator once told me that my camera takes great pics. My reply was that I thought her oven baked great cakes.:lol:

Yeah, the copy I played with had really severe loca down to ~f/2.8, even worse than the canon version.
