On Yongnuo creates near-clone of Canon EF 35mm f/2 article (159 comments in total)
In reply to:

AlanG: Keep in mind that Canon and Nikon started out copying Leica and Zeiss cameras and lenses. Maybe some of these Chinese companies will be the major innovators in the future. DJI is certainly doing that with multirotors.

Many lenses use fairly well established traditional designs.

Woops wro g type of rotator.. sozz.

Doug Frost: This is nothing special. Even my smartphone has a self-powered video camera in it. I can record and play back videos without connecting it to an external power supply. Plus it has internal power for the phone and a bunch of other stuff, too. Imagine that!

I dont care that your trolling, this comment is jusy annoying either way

On Video Field Test: Tamron SP 15-30mm F2.8 Di VC USD article (81 comments in total)

Can we qualify uniquely in its class for stabilization? Nikon and canon both offer wide zooms with VC. Do you mean being 1mm shorter than Nikon/Canon lenses or the fact its a 2.8 zoom?given it stretches out to 30mm, i think its more like the nikon 16-35 than the nikon 14-24. Just wkndering where the destinctions are coming in?

In reply to:

Hugo808: Jolly impressive, but is it the lens or the camera? I'm looking forward to seeing a mix of glass used for the full review...

@Hugo, do you realise how impressive 18-35mm f1.8 constant is on such a large image area camera? On top of that designed for multiple mounts, affordable and great image quality. So sorry its not specified well enough for your needs. Go buy the 18-300 then whinge about the slow aperture. Cant help some people.

In reply to:

Johannes Zander: Why care where it was taken if this foto supports his story?

He lied about his didactics and therefore is bad journalism. It cannot be celebrated.

In reply to:

Michael49: People keep complaining about the sizes of these lenses, but the way I see it for most outings all I need is the 28mm f/2, 35mm f/2.8 and the 55mm f/1.8 on the A7. Small enough for me, even when compared to my Fuji XE-1 kit.

I already own the 35 and the 55 - they are small enough and simply fantastic lenses. I only hope the 28mm f/2 is as good.

Eventually, I'll either add the 21mm adapter (if its decent) or keep using my Oly 21mm f/3.5 - which is tiny and very good.

Screw the E mount zooms, I agree that they are too large, but who needs them with such sweet and small primes!!

Mirrorrless please - Leica is a high quality manufacturing company. They do most work in house. Their lenses are The best and for the majority of products they dont have motors in the lenses. They are manual focus!!! Forget this typ T camera, it is no measure of what Leica really is.

dougster1979: If you have a tiny body, you will still have to use large lenses(full frame). Smaller lenses = 4/3rds, APSC.

Nerd2 what on eath ate you gibbering about? M4/3 have some of the fastest lenses available. There are plenty of APSC lebses with nice apertures, Pentax especially good at this.

In reply to:

iAPX: I am sad for the Kodak brand, as here in North America we often refer to a Camera as a "Kodak".

Yes. Brand identity is sadly more important than the universally recognised noun for a thing. Can I please have a Kleenex? Lets xerox it! Etc. Etc.

DPR, in the opening paragraph, you make mention of the 18-55, not the 55-200. Nitpicks I know ;-)

nawknai: For me, the standouts are:

4: Glacier
5: Arty b&w staircase
6: Deer
7: Backlit monk (borderline...)
11: Orangutan (or "monkey")

10: Planes. I love it, but I'm simple-minded.

#9 is mirrored in photoshop, and so I feel should be considered "digital art" rather than photography.

I do not believe #9 is mirrored. The sky is not mirrored.

On Olympus PEN E-PL7 First Impressions Review preview (503 comments in total)
In reply to:

bebgsurg: I'm sorry, but no flash = no buy. How Olympus could have designed a camera for the point and shoot crowd just moving up from cellphone cameras, and left off an embedded flash is beyond me. Inside or outside, sometimes you need a flash !!

Clip on flash with my epl-3 was fine! Also its free with the camera.

On UK Landscape Photographer of the Year winners announced article (157 comments in total)
In reply to:

chris_j_l: #4 looks very overcooked for me - others will disagree, but the rest I'd be very happy to stare at 'for more than 20 minutes' (if they were printed/displayed at studio size). For me the judges did a good job with an excellent submission field.

Totally agree... Pictures like that do not inform the reality of the scene too accurately. Love the winners in general well done'

In reply to:

emadrisss: Another example of why our western societies are so decadent and why the 3rd world nations hate us so much - is a camera like this truly needed in this recession riddled world?

The fat cat leaders of the 3rd world countries probably are the customers.

Rawmeister: OMG. There really are too many mental defectives in the world.
So, so Sad.

Please, why don't all you "more money than brains" types stay away from the photography world.

I'm rooting for a massive worldwide ebola pandemic as a much needed attitude adjuster.

Wow, you are a horrible person, what if you were the first fatal case of this pandemic you are wishing for?
