For you computer experts here, I'm considering updating my desktop computer and am wondering if a gaming computer might be the way to go. I want an 'off the shelf' desktop rather than me trying to build one. Been there, done that. I would think a gaming computer would have the processing speed to cope with editing photos and video.

I'm considering this Dell Alienware Aurora R6 Intel Core i7 4.2GHz 16GB RAM 2TB + 256GB Gaming Desktop computer. It's going for $1724 on sale.

Thoughts? suggested different computers?

.....

Just a thought, but when I'm bouncing back and forth between Lr/C1 and Ps while also surfing the web and streaming music I can easily fill up 16Gb of RAM. If you have similar habits you might want to consider more ram. The other day I did a small GIF in Ps with a dozen images from my A7RII and it ate up 16gb of ram quite quickly.

Have you guys seen this sample of the 24-105 at F4

at 80mm only and the bokeh is already awesome. how much more if the distance of the background is like that and shoot at 105mm, bokeh will be better.

Looks great. I want one. :)

Would be pretty neat to have 24-105mm and then 100-400mm. Heck, add the 12-24mm and you'd have a zoom range of 12-400mm with minimal overlaps.

Carlo I'm sorry for the delay. As per your request I just tested the Xplor600 with and without extension using only the 7" standard reflector at the same exact distance.(i marked the floor with a duct tape to be sure and placed the light meter on my chin)

Without the Extension = F16
With the Extension = F14

I tried it like 3 times each, i got consistent result.

This is a 4K video of the moon from tonight that I cropped to HD then resized back to 4K. Just a test...

Full screen at 4k looks pretty good I think.

So you're only losing 1/3 stop power with the extension head. Thats really impressive given how much easier it is to work with when using the extension head. I always second guess using the extension head when I'm trying to overpower through sun and the xplor is getting tapped out. Good to know that it doesnt make that much of a difference.

This is exactly my plan.
I’m selling all the primed except the Batis 18.
Kinda got tired of carrying 5-7 primes with me and swapping lenses all the time.

pre-ordered as well :D

upgrading from an a7r1. im a bit bummed that its the same sensor as the 2nd but im not to say that it was not good. I was hoping better. also I wanted that new wheel on the top left like the a9 has with the single/burst shot. i understand that its not as fast and not needed but its a nice thing to have. when using the a7r2 i had problems with it going into bracket shots. i was wondering why it was writing to the card so slow and also the memory card filled up very fast and missed a few good shots heh. rookie error

im also going to get the grip :D

We go back to Standard Time on Sunday, Nov 5th at 2:00 am.

Oops! I just noticed your question was addressed to Charlie. :rolleyes:

I think it's the first Sunday in November for us. So I have a week to get a clear shot, have no idea how it'll turn out, hoping for the best ;-)a

Thanks both, I hadn’t really thought about it before but thought it would be the same date but it makes sense to be apart since you are further round the globe (or flat earth depending if you are a moron or not :-P )

That does look good. This lens is getting more and more appealing. I used to love my 24-105
