Maybe, but i doubt it. The Sony sensors are where it is at.

Inherited/got a RX100 for Christmas so I messed around with it during a trip to Naples last week. IMO, this was my nicest shot all day.

^^^ Very nice, Raffy, but stick that bad boy in any editing app (even iPhoto will do), and straighten the horizon.  Pretty amazing what that little Sony can do.

Nice photo, and nice colors.  Which generation RX100 is it?

 

Mine's a 1st generation one, and I really envy the viewfinder the III has.  I do much worse composing on a rear screen.

Anybody with any experience with a Tamron SP 17 - 35mm f/2.8-4.0 Di?

 

I'm intending to use it on a D700 body.  I've read some good things about it.

Get a good copy and it's a great bargain. On a D800 for a filterable ultra wide. I wouldn't use it on a 36MP body, but it worked well for me ok n the 700.

Got the gear today only to find out none of the software I have PS CS5, Lightroom 4 and Aperture can be updated to work with the D750 RAW files.

Really thinking about going with DXO Optics first before sticking with PS.  Not really a fan of Adobe.

SOOC (cropped) Samples.  I seem to have front focus issues with this Sigma 35.

You should be able to dial those issues out, no?  Even on the D7000 there is a focus plane adjustment that you can make lens specific.

Yeah I will use the LensAlign system when I get a L Plate so I can set it up on a tripod.  Should be able to get it right if it is not too far out.

^ Yep, and the Sigma dock will also let you adjust it at different distances, as well as update lens firmware. I stopped using mine, except for firmware update, when it apparently reset the adjustments I'd made without my permission. Could very well have been a user error, but I just use the in camera adjustment since my lens had very little differences at different focus distance.

Does the sigma software let you tweak at different F-stops too? 

 

For lenses that focus perfectly at F(max) but front/backfocus at F(2 stops less)?

^ Unfortunately, no. That would've been a nice feature, though. No wonder if they could add it with future updates.

FWIW, the Sigma software interface is terrible. A better translation/localization to English would help greatly.
