Peter Togel: O wonder how the autofocus works on this one. The 50mm Art Autofocus drives me crazy...
I own the 50mm Art, and while it does miss occasionally, I find it isn't any worse than Canon lenses I've owned. I do find it has trouble focussing on subjects without points of contrast(areas without color difference), but you will have that trouble with any lens.
Vegetable Police: When he said that he uses Canon cameras, I immediately knew that all the photos would be terrible so I threw my computer out the window to avoid seeing them. Then I went to my local library to type this response, and then I threw that computer out the window. I was then arrested, and am typing this last part of my response from jail.
The security cameras here are made by Canon, so I'm pretty sure I can just walk out of here during the next low light situation without being seen.
Seriously though, the photos are amazing!
OMG, now that was hilarious. If you replace Canon with Nikon it would be true, as well!
I thought the photograph was supposed to tell the story, not the other way around? Does this picture win any awards minus the "politically edgy" story line? NO WAY.
amobi: Not sure why some people are complaining. I am sold. I was just about to pull the plug on Sigma 20/1.8g. This announcement came at the right time.
I am a proud owner of 35 art, 50 Art, 24-105 Art and now 24 Art. 85 and 135 will complete my Art collection.
Don't you mean 'pull the trigger'?
Looks good to me. Suggestion: Next time, take a colorful prop to photograph.
Canon will catch up eventually.
RichRMA: Canon and Nikon were idle as Sony got a respectable foothold in the DSLR and mirrorless markets. Canon and Nikon have nothing comparable to this revolutionary Samsung. Once Samsung gets its lens inventory going, it will be a force to be reckoned with. Canon and Nikon still dominate by virtue of their names, but this will not last.
I used to take @HowaboutRAW seriously, but now I cannot...thanks for the laugh. ;-)
b craw: Not without a fair amount of mannerism, but, all in all, a good selection of compelling work.
I thought the color was ok but overall was the weakest photo in the bunch... Not sure what the photographer was going for here, at least in a compositional sense.
Many display an excellent use of shadow, love those.
Oh wow, so glad I stumbled across this...no way can I troll here. Thanks DPR, for making this reference available. +2!
Karl Summers: This camera wasn't ready to be released prior to Christmas, yet Nikon did it anyway before the camera was thoroughly tested for defects. Now there is a major recall and Nikon is taking a huge hit for it. The company has poor leadership. I remember a poster stating the Canon 5D Mark III had the same issue, yet I don't remember a major recall for that camera.
I don't need the constant headaches that Nikon inspires. Canon may not have the latest greatest sensor tech, but at least I can rely on my camera.
And one more thing, this is what you get for buying the first incarnation of a new product line...suckers.
Wow, talk about a load of nonsense. The 5D Mark III AF is incredibly accurate and consistent. And about that micro focus, you can adjust it at both ends of the zoom spectrum...at the same time. Try again there buddy.

Karl Summers: Ouch! Burned by flare! Roll out the 760s!
steelhead3: Nikon is learning a lesson and should be commended for looking after its customers. DP may re-think its rating as another Nikon camera goes in for a major recall (without the Chinese government getting involved). Sony is having a major problem with its 60 flash and is acting like Nikon with the 600 problems. With the prices these companies charge, they should bend over backwards to keep us happy.
Because Nikon acknowledged the problem, it warrants a revision to 104% Platinum award. Happy?
My Canon is perfect, my shots are beautiful. Shut up.
Only on sunny days.
I actually liked my D610, but the snickers and snide comments I received from passers-by were just too much. Now, all I get are compliments, no one dares insult my Canon.
Ouch! Burned by flare! Roll out the 760s!
I have roughly 1,260 pictures of my cats. I will send all of them to you.
Karl Summers: This seems like an insanely simple question, but why not dual CF card slots? Why not at least ONE CF card slot?
Ah ok, I thought "CFast" and CF Cards were synonymous. Thanks for the info.
