Between the 70-300 and the 70-200/2.8, I'm sure my 70-200/4 is worth used maybe 1/2 of what I paid for it, lol.

LFPCPH: Will the next NX be FullFrame ???

winky winky winky ;-)

And we'd be complete suckers to buy any camera from Samsung at this point.

Stollen1234: Great Eight: Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8 review
What a title...how could this review be really obejective?

They did a review and came up with a title, and the title then makes the review un-objective?? I'm missing it, I guess.

* Shutter vibration can slightly blur photos at certain shutter speeds
* Electronic shutter introduces possible rolling shutter
* Desaturated colors in JPEG, particularly at high ISO; skin tones and yellows can be a bit green.

These were the reasons I sold my GX7. Not much changed I guess. I'll stick with Sony for now, but keep watching m43. Mainly because of my m43 lens jealousy!

Nindy: Why does DP dance around questions? I would love to see Canon pushed a little harder with questions around why 4K hasn't been implemented in the enthusiast market, we all know answer. Letting Canon give you a BS answer maybe be acceptable to DP but we the readers want DP to ask and push manufacturers and be the voice of the people

I'm inclined to agree on the "tougher questions" angle. I work on the sales and marketing side, and believe me, we HAVE to do discussions with the press. ESPECIALLY if we are trying to play catch-up.

There's so much spin doctoring in here. And I didn't see where Nindy said "insult them." Just drill a little more? Or maybe you did, and these are just the summaries?

axlotl: Mr Tokura correctly identified continuous autofocus and EVF performance as constraints to mirrorless development. But he failed to mention shutter shock which is the bane of mirrorless camera systems right now. The definitive solution to this problem is a sensor which supports global shutter. Does Canon have one of those in the wings ?
Andrew

Well, I would not expect for Canon to be first with it, then. I spent so many years waiting for them to catch up on so many features other makers already have.

Thanks. Who has an implementation of global shutter?

Global shutter is not a perfected science. I've used several of these full e-shutters and enjoyed the CMOS Jell-O

Increased development speed? Canon? Boy they have a self set very low bar here.

On article CP+ 2016: Hands-on with Nikon DL compacts (318 comments in total)

I'm pretty used to Sony now, so I hope Sony just releases an 18-50 :) Keep the price down on both!

I do like the dedicated EV dial, though.

biza43: Interesting, but ultimately, nothing new. Travel photogs have been taking "wide angle portraits" (or more correctly, portraits of people surrounded by their environment) for decades. Just look at NatGeo stuff.

"What has been will be again,
what has been done will be done again;
there is nothing new under the sun." - Ecclesiastes

Even saying there is nothing new is at least 3,000+ years old!

But it's nice to have this video posted on this site, as I for one do not visit the National Geo site very much.

tecnoworld: I never liked the distortion effect introduced by wide angle lenses on faces. Some of the pics are nice, but...distorted nevertheless :-P

He mentioned that, but he also made a point to say that is a trade-off for the "intimate" feel that we experience when we are close to people. It's not for everything for sure, but it's a well crafted video on an alternate approach to portraiture.

Great and really enjoyable video. More of these, please!

WT21: Is there any reason to run Bridge if you already run Lightroom? I know why you might use Bridge with Photoshop, but what if you are just Lightroom?

Thanks for the replies. I am kinda frustrated with how slow LR has gotten. Will give Bridge a try. -- Does it work with CC mobile at all? I'll have to see if there is a Bridge app for iPad. I do like LR Mobile for accepting/rejecting photos (wish it supported keywording)

Panny really has done a lot for photography and video. Too bad their marketing and distribution is so messed up. They should get far more credit than what they do. Heck, m43 would not have made it on the back of Oly alone. The best early lenses were all Panny. Their work with Leica. This sensor work.

Even back with compacts, they were pushing the envelope with 720p and then 1080p in compact cameras.

Panny -- figure out how to blow your own horn and get announced products to market on time!

The service will be available until Adobe decides they have a better idea. Then it will disappear.

In reply to:

ravikiran532: Enough of comparisons with FF lens or 4/3 lens...I don't know why such comments come when any manufacturer releases a new lens...
If canon releases a tele lens...people start complaining ...how big that lens is ..Mirrorless is future..
If 4/3 releases a tele lens...size is too big...DSLR is king..

Of all three if you dont want to compromise for low light..then APSC is the right option.. High end fuji will always be lighter than high end APSC canon..

For comparision sake
7d mark II with 100 -400 --- 900g + 1.6 == 2.5kg
fujifilm Xt1 with 100 -400 -- 450g + 1.4 == 1.8kg
GH4 + 100 with 100-400 (ts slower too 4 - 6.3) -- 600g + 1 == 1.6kg
I hope people will stop making "size" comments instead welcome the move by the manufacturer by introducing a great lens..to make their lens family complete..comment later after seeing sample images

FYI -- Pana is slower on the long end, faster on the short end (4.0 vs. 4.5) vs. the Fuji. I'd be much more interested in the imaging characteristics of the lenses than .3 stop on either end.
