On Panasonic confirms Lumix G 25mm F1.7 article (97 comments in total)
In reply to:

straylightrun: They really should have just made a mark II of the 25/1.4. I don't see many peole getting this when the 20/1.7 is more compact and versatile.

It is better than the 20/1.7 in numerous ways, most importantly the AF being vastly superior.

The 20/1.7 is a benchmark for a fast pancake lens and deserves its plaudits. But a non-pancake design can out-perform a pancake, inherently. If the new lens delivers on the promise of "uniform descriptiveness from center to edges", it will be a better choice to anyone who can bear to have a lens as long as 52mm.....

I agree with you, an updated Leica DG25 would have been very exciting, but $600+!

TN Args: And what photo software does apple suggest we use it with?

@darngooddesign, the one that has the features that I need has its own raw processing engine. Where is the apple alternative?

Note to DPR. It is written PRO, not (with a hint of mockery) 'Pro'.

On Sony reportedly shifting focus to full-frame cameras article (454 comments in total)
In reply to:

Thomas Richter: Problem is, Sony does not have a single decent standard zoom for any of their mirrorless systems.

@TrojMacReady, which part of my post saying f/2.8 and one kilogram did you think refers to the f/4 lens? LOLOL what a joke. And the f/4 version is a very ordinary lens with inadequate sharpness for the bodies. Read slrgear for the truth. I hope you don't have one LOLOL

You are confusing the lens I mentioned with some other model. Perhaps you are thinking of the f/4.

I gave you a Like because you make a good point, although the Zeiss 24-70/2.8 is a very decent lens. A one-kilogram very decent lens LOL.

I recommend DPR remove all comments that are overtly political -- including accusations that DPR are overtly political (because such comments are actually an overtly political statement by the commentator).

All I see is a bunch of interesting photos. I don't see any policy statements or policy position or implicit political endorsement in the article.

The comments I see are certainly against the forum rules on trolling (deliberately antagonizing other forum users, who may not share the political rage of the posts), and Bashing (in this case a political 'brand' to which many people would feel some loyalty or liking).

Seriously -- although my politics is a million miles from that of the people in the photos, I'm still offended by the comments.

In reply to:

BigOne: DPReview is turning into a corporate troll. A few weeks ago they published absolutely talentless photos of military planes, which caused a lot of "stir". Now they show us absolutely meaningless photos of possibly the most hated politician in American history in one of the most tragic moments in American history. Don't you have cameras to test?

Did you name yourself BigOne ironically?

On Adobe announces final Camera Raw update for CS6 owners article (481 comments in total)
In reply to:

Andrewteee: If DNG were the single RAW standard this would be a moot issue. Unique RAW file formats benefit no one.

Yes yes, but we are talking about lens corrections. Your bold claim that, if all raw was DNG, then lens corrections *would* be incorporated in DNG files, is nothing but an assumption, and one that Adobe, with its anti-desktop stance, could not possibly be assumed to implement for their desktop products. That's all I'm trying to say.

Not by Adobe they wouldn't, not for CS desktop. And that's the point of this thread.

That wouldn't help at all. The issue in the very short article, if you care to read it, is that new lens profiles will only be available to cloud subscribers, and DNG doesn't/wouldn't help that issue.

GregGory: Dual-IS - FINALLY Pany decided to pick the lowest hanging fruit...

I've been advocating for Dual-IS ever since Oly joined m43 with IBIS and the endless discussions about the m43 incompatibility started. But every single time people queued up to tell me it is impossible...

Where are the naysayers now?

At the very least, guys, show more patience than the brain-dead review sites and wait until the Dual-IS is ACTUALLY IMPLEMENTED, before leaping into print with your fantastic discoveries about what you found somewhere on the internet, lol.

Don Finch: So does this mean I can go to Paris France in September and not have to worry about being thrown in prison for taking pictures of my favorite place on earth?
Just looking for clarification from a Paris resident on what to expect.

Even the original wording would never get you in prison for taking pictures.

Heavy rain, eh? But really, the less detail or colour, the better: remember, it's a protest. And a brilliant one at that. Well done!

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-G7 Review preview (452 comments in total)

I hate it when reviewers try to make a negative out of an excellent set of external controls! "First time ILC buyers", indeed! Had a look at the controls on a PowerShot G3X or a Coolpix P610 lately?
