The new lenses appear to be focus by wire ?

Ridiculous for lenses of this quality.

Looks like they've got mechanical focus rings.

The 85/1.4 even has a mechanical aperture ring, which can be switched between going in steps (i.e. 2.0 to 2.2 to 2.5 to 2.8 and nothing in between) or adjusting smoothly.

I hope this is impetus for Sigma to start releasing its Art-series lenses in native FE mount (thus allowing Sony's AF system to be used to its full capability), so that we no longer have to rely on adapters.

I have had a couple of panos that would not stitch in LR or PS so I tried MS ICE and it could stitch stitch them. Worth a try, especially since it is free.

they just added this on their website
they are one of the most high end output studio in NYC



They mentioned printing on paper there - any idea if they also print directly onto metal or Dibond, or apply a UV-curable high-gloss laminate?

Wish I could find one in Australia, rather than shipping massive, rigid prints halfway around the world.

I'm also looking at this one:

It was Little Britain, but it's not been produced for 10+ years. Maybe it could no longer compete with reality?

Ahh, yes..  That's it.  I wish BBCAmerica would air the reruns though..  And throw in some Red Dwarf and Faulty Towers, too.  They're always showing Star Trek: TNG - ad nauseum::)   It would be a nice change of pace for something completely different.

Anyways - sorry, people, to derail the thread with some OT.
Back to your regularly scheduled programming....

The larger sensor size is pretty important to me. I do food and lifestyle, and even going from 44x33 to 48x36mm I saw a huge difference in the way the scene is rendered.

If you look illuminate and look from the same angle you would see a different colour.

Best regards


I did wonder. Thank you.

In layman's terms, is that a "Yes"?

Focus by wire is not bad if properly done.

Best regards

Thank you very much everyone for taking the time to read, view and comment - I appreciate it very much. I am glad you find the story behind the picture interesting: I find that it is worth to never let external circumstances ruin our spirit and mood, to try and keep positive and to keep looking even when it seems that all hopes for a good shot are lost. I am not claiming to be able to do it all the time, but I find that keeping making an effort makes it easier and easier to do it as the years pass by. And, sometimes, one gets rewarded by a good shot found somewhere unexpected, like in this case  :D

Thanks again! Best,
