But what about lossless RAW?
TheDman: And another good photographer gets to be the piñata for a peanut gallery of snap shooters who don't even know what they're looking at.
That you're still banging on about it 18 hours (now 19) after he rescinded his earlier statement. Over and out.
*Initial post* - thank you, you've made my point for me.
He took it back. Looks to me like you're the one hitting the pinata now.
Leandros S: Bagan, like Cappadocia (more balloons), is completely overphotographed, and the shot presented here offers nothing original.
There is nothing particularly original about this scene or composition, sorry.
I'm wondering who it is that don't know what they're looking at - the ones critiquing or the ones who can't even follow the critique.
...and yours does?

This camera's name was already a favourite with 13 year old boys before it was even launched. And it's small, too! Disaster shall take its course...
p5freak: So, the filter transfers all the energy from the steel ball to the lens, instead of taking the hit, breaking the glass with the energy ? Good for the filter, bad for the lens. You might end up with an intact filter, and a broken lens.
Not me, sorry.
Several of you guys have apparently never heard of misalignment. Thinking that the front element breaking is the only thing that can happen from a fall is really, really naive.
So, the WR Ceramic Protectors are not going to absorb the impact?
Adrian Harris: Tricky when the best are not listed. = it's dpr's list, so they may as well choose the winner !
But the previous polls did not include all of the popular choices - check the lens poll and comments:http://www.dpreview.com/articles/9873726109/have-your-say-best-lens-of-2015
CheersUK: Sadly, I'm not going to vote in this.The list is too restrictive...far more products were released that are deserving of of a listing in this, than what the DPR staff have deemed worthy. The available list is far too restrictive.I'm not saying that there are not strong contenders in the list, but not really representative of a wide range of products.
So you're not voting, then?
Except you restricted the earlier polls, Barney.
Not really worth voting imo, as the Fuji 90, Sigma 20 and Pentax 150-450 were not available for voting in the previous round.
BelePhotography: my vote is for Fujifilm 90mm F2.0 - sharpest lens ever and not on this list???
I think you mean Sony 90/2.8 - Zeiss have a 100/2.0, but it only goes to 0.5 magnification natively. For the Zeiss to be a true macro, you need a further magnification accessory (e.g. tubes). And once you add that, you're no longer working at f/2.0. :) The Sony, meanwhile, is *almost* a true macro (DPR gives magnification as 0.92).
Sounds like that's settled then, Fuji 90 in first place, Sigma 20 in second, as voted by the not-so-silent mainjority. Third place in comments goes to Pentax 150-450.
Imaging-Resource got the first one right - plaudite resurgentes imaginum.
Okay, why can't we vote on 50 lenses?
The Pentax 150-450 was released this year, was it not?
