despite the manipulation, it only shows real things happening
I like it, it is a kind of a historical photo and I also appreciate the work behind it

iAPX: So sad!

I am in love with Reda, she's is young, she is the new generation, she is insightful, and grounded in the 2010's not in the 1910's. She explain things clearly with a deep understanding of what get we there. I want more EU MEP like her!

I don't care about buildings, I am not a panorama photographer, I do some street photography but it usually doesn't involve copyrighted buildings. Or does it, because a 1900 building could see it's architect dying in the 50's, and the right still existing in 2020?!?

It has just no sense until you just make pictures of a building. But even then, everyone could see it, it's free, from the road. So where is the lost?
I think photographying a building is just advertisement, for the architect...

@falconeyes
as this was a proposal from MEP, how is this going to weaken the, e.g., Commission?

the company has confirmed in mail, that there is indeed a 14 blade aperture, not 6 and that they are taking down the product photo nr. 3
all clear for ordering from my side :D

stanic042: if the optical quality is any good (seems a bit cheap for ultra wide macro lens) this will be a very nice lens for the planned Pentax fullframe

I´m in similar situation, having 50 mm and 100 mm covered, planning to get the hopefully upgraded DFA 300/4 HD :) and with this 15 mm, it would only leave a 20-35 mm hole, which might get covered by the new Sigma zoom...but I would also really like to be able to use the DA 35/2,8 macro, given the Tamron clone of this lens is full-frame and I use the DA happily on the Z1p

hmm, the aperture looks like 6 blades in their product photo

apart from manual aperture and some barrel distortion, looks like a winner to me: "excellent image quality" "this lens a small chunk of solid metal"

John C Tharp: Why make a 'UV' filter at all? Why not start with a protection filter without coatings that rob light?

you mean coatings that help to transmit light

Photoman: I wonder if these adapters will be any good. I thought you only put adapter lens on video cameras? I would prefer a FE 21mm with no attachments on it.

a friend uses nex 5n and the 16/2,8 plus adapter to 12 mm, and I was really surprised how excellent the pics were

GodSpeaks: Capture One Pro is far superior to lightroom. Plus you are not forced to 'catalog' everything.

just a tech. q., in what is it superior? and I don´t feel like forced to catalog stuff in LR...

In reply to:

Mike FL: One thing is for sure, you pay less for "Made in China". Such as:

"Yongnuo clones Canon’s ‘nifty fifty’ down to every last detail at half the price (@$69)" per IR.

"the 'build quality seems to be on par with Canon’s 50mm 1.8 II; maybe a *tad bit better*, but not by much.'"

http://www.imaging-resource.com/news/2014/12/18/yongnuo-clones-canons-nifty-fifty-down-to-every-last-detail-at-half-the-pri

BTW:
Actually, you can get it for not $69, but $40 with free shipping.

As an reference a "Leica Lens Coffee Cup Mug" is $45, and " Made in Germany. Never used, only removed from box for this photo". Per seller, Oh yes. " Made in Germany."

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Leica-Lens-Coffee-Cup-Mug-Summarit-S-70-/181637130719?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2a4a6aa9df

have you ever used anything made in Germany?

In reply to:

Hugo808: Heh, heh, good old Pentax. They've always been a revolutionary company that pushes boundaries and comes up with mold-breaking new ideas.

In the 60's they developed open-aperture metering and reflex viewfinders but I suspect their glory days are behind them if their next big thing is pretty colours!

Mind you, maybe my old Spotmatic might have sold more if it had come in raspberry ripple flavour, who knows for sure?

yes, no innovation at all, just a on-demand AA filter or on-sensor astro tracking, for example
