Zone system has it's place in photography, but a whole book about the topic?
I think one page is enough, you either get it or you don't....

On Accessory Review: Nimbus Cloud Dome article (96 comments in total)

The "Without Nimbus Cloud Dome in outdoor ambient lighting." photo clearly shows a lack of skills rather than the lack of cloud-dome.
The shadow, the lower magnification...you're trying too hard to make the cloud-dome look like a useful thing.

On Coming soon: Lens Reviews to return to dpreview.com article (272 comments in total)
In reply to:

Cani: DxO reviews are the most comprehensive ones available, that's great news.

Just a comment.

In about every test methodology lenses are tested at (an unknown) close focusing distance only, which is frustrating since lense performance might vary significantly across the range of focusing distances from the closest up to infinity.

More and more we see lenses that test successfully but disappoint in the real world due to poor performance at infinity.
So, imo if you had plans to include an appreciation of lens performance at infinity (other than sample shots) that would be another great improvement.

We need an ISO 12233 chart the size of a football field ;)

I'm looking forward to see the 35-100 out resolve the Tokina 50-135...

Jonathan F/2: I miss Phil Askey's sample shots. At least you get proper people photographs every time he took pictures of his wife/gf. What's up with these samples? Who gets a fast 70-200 2.8 equivalent lens and then goes off shooting land/cityscapes?

Dpreview, you should go check out this Korean photo site which did a much better preview on the 35-100 and a proper one at that with a real model!

Wow, Koreans are becoming good at everything.
Samsung now go make a 70-200 equivalent for your NX system and price it right!

bradleyg5: Seems like a pretty nice lens until you mentioned the price! 1500 dollars! Wow. You're telling me a Canon 70-200mm L F4 IS is worth less than that? Then people wonder why us trolls are bitter at Panasonic and Olympus.

Canon 70-200 f/4 IS is lower quality?!
In what way? Build? Optics?
It's one of the sharpest zooms in the universe.

qwertyasdf: YES!! What a blast! With Sony leading the show with the worlds first compact FF, Fuji x-e1, Sigma lenses (so looking forward to the 35 1.4), also Samyang bringing out (finally) a UWA for apsc.

And above all, we have witnessed the birth of history's fugliest camera - The Hassssselblad Luuuuuuuunar!!!!!!

Just thought of a new joke:
What's the difference between the Lunacy and the Nex7?
Well, the Lunacy is a Nex7 before circumcision, thus the animal skin.

qwertyasdf: I'm gonna add a wide converter so that I could chop the soft corners/borders off to get a 35mm equivalent crop.

I really can't tell if the bottom part is OOF or plain soft?

On Photokina 2012: Interview - Stephan Schulz of Leica article (195 comments in total)
In reply to:

jtan163: Sorry this is not intended as anti Leica - if it's anti anything its anti anti logic.
This sort of double think/double talk drives me insane.

"There were not really any complaints, but there were some little things. Fashion shooters wanted greater buffer size. Some people criticized the playback mode, so we added the joystick. This was one of the main complaints actually"

The first sentence, says there "were not really any complaints".
Three sentences later "...one of the main complaints...".

Fscking marketing people and suits.
Do they realise how how dumb they sound?

I have no idea how much a guy like this gets paid, but surely its a decent swedge and surely he should be able to string together 2 contiguous sentences without contradicting himself.

Still I'd love one of these bad boys, regardless.

My 5 year old nephew can tell a more convincing mistruth without crossing himself. Here endeth the rant, apologies, and I return you to your normal service.

Maybe English is not his native language.
He may find some fill in the blanks exercise useful:

"There were not really _ _ _ _ complaints ... so we added the joystick. This was one of the main complaints...."

Hint: fill in a 4 letter word.

In reply to:

Len_Gee: do you recommend keeping the camera image stablization on since the tripod might be a bit wobbley? Thinking of using it with either MFT or Sony RX100 cameras.

Probably adequate by using 10-sec timer, under not so windy conditions.
If it is till wobbling after 10 seconds, probably there's an earthquake

In reply to:

qwertyasdf: DPreview, does the ball head give a tight lock, for lets say a 5DII plus a 16-35mm?!?

I do not think this is pointless. For travelers that go out for a whole day and only look forward to use a tripod at night, this makes absolutely perfect sense. It's simply not worth it to carry a tripod for 8 hours to take a few shots at the end of the day.
For safety, I won't worry much, will the legs just snap and the camera crash to the ground?! Not a chance.
Wind?! Might be a problem, it's so thin and probably very aerodynamic anyways.
Needs a 10-sec timer to be steady? so be it.

I always think that CF tripods are way into the diminishing return territory, one hv to pay a lot for the rather small weight savings over alloy tripods.
If I use it once per day, I'll pay, but I use it once per year...
