    The lion's share of the commentary in that article relates to the extra detail and people would probably say the same thing about the 12K. Only one person mentioned selective focus in a wide shot.

    I think the results of this are amazing (other than totally losing focus at 22 feet or whatever).

    But what's not amazing is the requirement for center framing. And the fact that it can never do...

    Yeah I think iPhones will always be a low end thing. (But maybe you'll find specific reasons to want them. Maybe some unique feature. Maybe you'll negotiate a package rate one day on a job you need...

    Slightly glossier in the crop. Noise level felt like one stop higher uncropped ISO.

    And technically it makes sense. Uncropped is super sampled 6K. When you crop, you enlarge the noise.

    I agree with what you say about manufacturers potentially forcing people to use (and crop if they want) larger sensors because they stop making smaller ones. That could happen with full-frame. Not...

    I love my Laowa 12mm. Strengths - sharpness, very low distortion, very close focus, good flare resistance, great price. Weakness - no AF. Hard to think of other weaknesses

    Do you think everyone will be shooting large format someday? Or will it be larger than that?

    Of course people will be cropping FF sensors sometimes even on big budget stuff but my guess is that...

    The S1 was noticeably softer and noisier in crop mode. The red scarlet was likewise waaaay noisier in crop mode. Among other issues, I believe that the aa filter is not optimized for cropping

    No, there are plenty of people turning down those choices.

    I'm not saying will he/she choose S35 over ff. Assume they've already chosen S35. Will he choose to shoot cropped on a FF camera or will they choose a proper S35 camera?

    The argument others make...

    Sensor size is a spectrum not a binary. Inasmuch as S35 has advantages, it has a purpose. If people determine that FF has inherently higher IQ then maybe it will triumph. But I dont think that's the...

    I love that show. I liked the look but I agree that sometimes it was too much. And in other cases it will be waaaay too much.

    That's all well and good for the low-end, which is most. anyone who has used the crop modes in RED is well-aware of the hit to quality.

    People still shoot 16mm film. You see an occasional 4:3 movie. A 4k TV can play hd with no penalty, so that's a different story. Nothing but upsides to manufacturers for phasing out hdtvs.

    You had the samyang 35/85? Supposedly the firmware has improved the AF. Although the 50 is a total lost cause. They also have new, small f/1.8 35, 45, 75 with even better AF. But I like the color and...
