Is it just me that finds it odd that Fuji would advertise the Zeiss lenses on their roadmap??? Yes I understand that more lenses for their platform is a good thing but still....

16:9????? Really?? Man...I really want this phone but 16:9 for photos is just brutal. As the article mentioned once you crop to 4:3 you are only left with a 3MP image.

16:9 is ok for landscape snaps but useless for most portraits.

Clint Dunn: Pretty amazing story. This guy has to sell his gear to pay the bills...then we have all of us clowns on DPReview with G.A.S who buy and sell like they're disposable cameras.

onlooker - You know what I was getting at. For some people cameras are tools to make a living. For others cameras are a hobby (more-so than the photography). I don't begrudge people buying and selling gear but at the end of the day the majority of us shoot for a hobby.

I just think it's an interesting commentary that some people spend tens of thousands on gear they barely use only to sell it a year or two later when something 'better' comes along. Then you have someone such as this award winning Photojournalist that NEED the gear and are forced to sell. Just sayin'.

nawknai: I looked at every photo. That's 90 photos, right?

I was impressed with 2 or 3 photos, generally liked 15-20 photos, and laughed at 4 or 5 of them as I shook my head in disbelief (oh Muge....).

Yes,,,what is with that 'Muge' guy?? Just awful. I know art id subjective but really????

I found the selection of this guy a bit odd:

'Muge' (the new Prince??)

pokeken: Christ there are so many bitter sods in DPR...that aside, although I appreciate many of the photos here, I find it a contradiction that this competition is supposed to help emerging talent but most of these photographers already have a big client base. The criteria for these competitions should be that they have done very little/none commercial work?

Agreed....how many 'emerging photographers' do you know whose client list includes Conde Nast and the Wall Street Journal. Heck...the majority of supposed 'professional' photographers are just weekend warriors shooting weddings.

skinnymakespretty: theres more emerging photographers, not just 30.

Yes...but how many 'emerging photographers' are making money?? Maybe that was the criteria....

Jessica Sample has a pretty impressive client list at age 29....

absentaneous: I keep observing that in such "competitions" the only factor to actually get picked is luck and more luck. I mean you could open any page on any photography social website and pick a photograph of the same quality and insight in no time. I mean you don't really need a jury for these things. it would be the same if they simply put all the names in a big jar and then pick 30 names out of it. same result, same quality. guaranteed.

You know what they say...you have to be good to be lucky. The inherent problem with photo 'competitions' is that they are completely subjective...such is the nature of art.

Want to see some world class imagery...go to 500px. There are some amazing photographers and most of them will never receive any recognition whatsoever.

Seriously though, in these examples at least two of them got their horizons / verticals straight.

In reply to:

Dan4321: No people?

Please, could you post some photos of actual people taken with this lens in the samples?

Statues don't count, I want to see how the lens handles delicate skin tones, eyes, lashes, etc. Close-up portraits, full-body shots, groups shots, environmental, studio, etc. It's important for a lot of us but it seems like a lot of the time, review samples posted by you guys have only a few people shots -- or none at all. Please don't neglect people photographers.

Seriously....what do you expect from people who are posting this info for free (and advertising). It's Canon's BEST standard zoom....if you need it than buy it. If you don't like it then return it.

Start selling that dang 10-24!!!! I like wide angle...and the 10-24 is the only lens I am waiting for.

BroncoBro: When is Nikon going to grab the camera market by the balls and do something innovative that LEADS the market rather than follow everyone else?

Timbit - I agree that the RX1 is far more impressive...but 'accounting for sensor size' doesn't make it magically shrink to fit in my pocket. There is currently no camera out there this small with this size of a sensor. The closest thing would be a Sigma...but it is still a bit bigger.

Maxnoy/Timbits - The X1/X2 is 'not much bigger'...really??? I suppose you guys think a Suburban is 'not much bigger' than an Austin mini.

If what you want is pocketability there is a HUGE difference:

Leica X2 - 124x69x52 345g
Nikon - 111x64x40 299g

BroncoBro - Tell me another camera maker who offers an APS-C size sensor in this small of a package. (Hint: there currently isn't anyone who offers this sensor size in this small of a package....truly pocketable).

I don't get all the haters. I love my HTC One X but I'm now on the pre-order for this HTC One. Awesome phone. I just hope the 64GB version is available in Canada.

ManuelVilardeMacedo: An MF system or a brand new yacht: you choose.

Manuel....even if you had to buy the lenses...say you spent 100k.....that's still a pretty cheap 'yacht'....even on the used market. Just sayin'.

Not to mention the fact that no one paying $4ok for this back is making a decision to buy it instead of their 'yacht'. This is clearly aimed at pros who can pay for the gear...not your average Mom and Pop soccer parents. Clearly you are not in the target market (nor am I :)
