On Massive $33,500 2450mm f/8 NASA lens surfaces on eBay article (224 comments in total)
In reply to:

MikeGre: How do I attach this lens to my belt or harness? I would need a very strong
connection and attachment or worry about it getting lose.

If you are like 200 feet from a lion then this focal length would give you a full size
frame of just its eyeball.

How will it balance on my Canon 1000D?
Will the Canon's mount hold the weight?
Will the lens fit in my Lowa Photo-Backpack?

If you are 200 feet from the lion, you will get a full size frame of just its balls. :)

On Nikon releases ViewNX-i image browsing software article (100 comments in total)

155 Mb for a photo viewer installation file? I mean seriously?

I am using Irfan View and when installed, it needs 14.5 Mb with all plugins.

OK, when and where can I get my 12-600mm f/1.4, 500 gramm, for $1000 ?

On Nikon D7200 First Impressions Review preview (1054 comments in total)
In reply to:

Rainer2022: The weight of the cam is listed "675g", where 7100 is listed "765g". Is this an error or did Nikon indeed reduce the weight of its 7200? - dimensions are identical to 7100.

For instance with and without battery

On Nikon D7200 First Impressions Review preview (1054 comments in total)

Does this mean I will never ever read whining about D400 again?
I am afraid it doesn't...

A tip to Nikon - make an additional service for changing the badge d7200 to d400 for $200.

wassim al malak: Hello for all ,

how that lens can be compared to the NIKKOR 16-35 f4 vr ?
even i was waiting for that lens , but , i am thinking now what is the major cons of it on the 16-35 ?
may someone mention the f2.8 over the f4 , but , i think the +1 on the wide and +5 on the zoom range is worth with f4 then 15-30 f2.8 .

any suggestions ?

>>how that lens can be compared to the NIKKOR 16-35 f4 vr ?

it is twice as heavy

@Raist3d
>>Russia not doing anything about gross discrimination, and violence.

I bet, you can't specify what kind of violence and discrimination made to gays in R.
In the best case, american propaganda had picked up 1-2 murder cases with gays involved, and presented them like a general rule for the whole Russia, like it is happening on the every day basis.
But in the most probable case - they just repeated "anti-gay violence in Russia" and "gay discrimination" for 100 times/day 3 month long (btw, right befor Olympic games), and now you and others retranslate that BS here.

Again, I agree with others hare. Gays are treated in absolutely same way as all other people in R (except gay clubs of course).

>> I a not going to pretend the US is perfect here, but it is prosecuted if you have gangs going after gays here.

So you think we have gangs that hunt gays? I wonder how effective your propaganda is: I am pretty sure none of the officials on CNN did ever tell that but they still made you think so.

>You tell me...
I agree with the other russians above. Nobody cares what and with whom you are doing in you bedroom.
(partly relevant story)
I new one transsexual - a guy who dressed like a gal and spoke about himself as a woman. He, or better say she worked in a big shop as a seller, so it was a very public place. I saw her several times a week for many years (I went to the shop on my way home). I never EVER saw any kind of discrimination expressed by her coworkers or visitors in the shop.

@D1N0
>>homosexual propaganda, which is effectively limiting the freedom of expression
So you mean the only result of their expression is gay propaganda?

Those horses, unable to m-bate, have lost their minds because of hormones. They would have *ex with anything that move.
I doubt you want to use that argument supporting gays.

Gediminas 8: Those background stories are really irritating. I thought photography was about storytelling by images, not by some half-a-page-long convoluted scares accompanying the photo.

The ant, the schoolyard and the Chinese worker photos are the best. But the politicised tale accompanying the schoolyard photo is clearly redundant.

Raist3d,
I am russian. Tell me, what's going on in my country. I'm sure you, and those journalists know it much better. ;-)

Gediminas 8
I didn't say, that westerners LOVE to observe ...
I said, that this is what is shown to westerners.
Sure, among almost 100 000 photos there are very different ones from all over the world. But nobody looks all 100k photos. We all look on compilations like "best 10" or "best 100".
Even here dpreview had chosen 12. Almost all of them showing troubles somewhere else. And the only one positive, life-asserting photo with bright, saturated colors, proper light and correct white balance is from ... USA.
And I see this in every documentary or journalistic photo contest, here or elsewhere.
That is what bothers me.

it is just the modern art.
Only 1 century ago artists were able to create a feeling or translate some ideas without a A4 page of text.
And now these useless people are only able to collect some garbage in a heap, or spray a paint from human holes on a canvas and then write 2 pages about what that all shoud mean. A trick is just to stay in the main prapaganda stream.

What is on the agenda today?
Gays and Putin? - then take this photo.
Very bad Saddam - here is another one
Twin-towers and state insecurity - here is the third one.

If gay are OKay, why most russian should care about them? Or do you mean they ARE sick, you liberal theoretician?

Express their nature how? Nobody cares what you are doing at your home. There are gays and gay clubs in Russia. Nobody touches them. There are no limitations when gays are looking for a job.
At the same time in many States in USA gay marriages are prohibited same way as in Russia. In other countries (USA allies) there is death penalty for just being gay (and lots of other things). But that is OKay!
This gay theme is used simply to put you against Putin and Russia. Because USA are not happy with him/us. Dont mix the cause and the consequence.

ZAnton: So the short flange distance makes no sense, because it causes big distortions, abberations and problems with "real aperture" on a big sensor (light has to fall on the sensor under a big angle). These lenses look quite long.

So what is a advantage of a slim 35mm mirrorless?

@MAubrey
Exactly. Most of these lenses look like "normal" lens with an adapter, which is optically a distance ring.

@nerd2
May be I am wrong, but non-retrofocus design produces short focal plane distance, which will cause problems with light on the sensor periphery.

crashpc: Please, add some older camera models in the comparison tool. It has been said many times and it would make good reference. I'm sure you'll find your time for 4-6 models... THX

agree, I'd like to see a granddaddies Canon 350D and Nikon D80. They probably wont be that much worse (if at all) than new Canon crops.
