comment Should I get the Sony Alpha a7r II or a DSLR?
The basics (ergonomics etc.) are merely different with the A7RII, not necessarily inferior. The camera also pushes well past what Canon and Nikon DSLRs are capable of in many areas. It's not just for "family purposes" many professionals are using it, the official photographer for the White House now uses an A7RII.

comment Why are larger sensors better at low light?
It's important to distinguish between per pixel noise and per image noise. Per pixel noise is heavily dependent on the pixel size, per image noise is most dependent on sensor size (pixel size has a very small influence). However since most people view and print images, not pixels, per image noise is a much more relevant measure, therefor it really is the sensor size that matters most.

@PhilipKendall Apart from that statement in the first paragraph the rest of the answer is correct, it would suggest just removing that part.

comment Visible pixels of glow on photos with long exposure
The Nikon D7100 doesn't have a CCD sensor, and this type of blooming doesn't happen with CMOS.

comment How can I avoid soft dull “spots” in my pictures?
@MichaelClark That's good to know, but I think given the high cost of sensor replacements (yes some manufacturers insist on replacing the entire sensor assembly if you scratch the glass) they're just trying to avoid any liability if someone drags a piece of grit across their sensor. I can't see any reason the pads themselves would not be suitable when used correctly.

comment Are there lenses f/1 or wider that work on EF or E-mount?
@Olivier probably because it's a mock up (built as a sort of joke) out of old condenser lenses, not an actual lens you could use. The focal length and aperture stats were made up.

@icor103 Not that covers at least APS-C. There's a Voigtlander 25mm f/0.95 but that only covers micro 4/3rds. SLR magic make the widest f/0.95 for APS-C at 35mm.

@Itai f/0.95 just sounds better, it's faster than f/1!
