In reply to:

luxor2: The chart showing "equivalent aperture" is nearly unreadable due to poor color contrast. Almost a poster child for Excel disasters!

Why does the F value goes back down for some cameras???

Gesture: Real photogs don't use UV filters, lens caps, neck straps or wrist straps. They do use lens hoods.

Real protogs dont talk about lens cap
:facepalm:

On Ricoh announces medium-format Pentax 645Z article (161 comments in total)

The issue is...not about the absolute size of the sensor.
it's the fact that it's called a 645, but without a 645 sensor.

It's like naming a 8-cylinder engine Model V12.

On Lensbaby releases 5.8mm F3.5 circular fisheye lens article (20 comments in total)

Good to see a circular FE for APSC, sensible price also.
FE ought to be cheapish, since we only use it thrice per year.

chillgreg: @RichardButler

ISO FOUR MILLION!!! Go Sony!!! :p

Knowing Sony's reputation for salesspeak I actually believed this for a few seconds lol.

"The innovative α7S camera features a newly developed, 12.2 effective megapixel 35mm Exmor® CMOS sensor paired with a powerful BIONZ X image processor, allowing it to shoot at a sensitivity range of ISO 50 – 4096002 with unprecedented dynamic range and low noise."

So ISO of 2 (two) makes the difference between picture and no picture!

Can't wait till ISO 4mil becomes reality. The aperture priority guys always say F8 and forget it. It's time we can say 1/8000 and forget it.

The fun gets old in like 3 seconds
and within the 3 seconds, 2 seconds is frustration.

Niklas Ramstedt: Nicely done. I know how bloody hard it is to get these suckers into focus. Summer after summer I try to capture some when the kids blow bubbles.

I think he took them on the moon or mars.

In reply to:

h2k: They keep shying away from a super wide angle prime.

And, yes, as a Pana shooter (except GX7) i'd rather prefer this one with IS.

Also CaNikon and SOlympus. WHY no UWA prime!
Only Pentax has a DA 15mm, which is marginally ultra wide.

Shield3: Not bad for a FF equivalent of 30mm F/3.4.

Why can't DPR just give us a equivalency debate forum? They want it so bad.

Since it's posted on DPR, I can only see barrel distortion in the second picture.

Via Lactea: this lens might be great for astrophotography! Samyang 14mm, 24, 35 and 85mm f1,4 are great astro-performers due to low coma and astigmatism. Fuji XE2 with this lens... hmm :-)

would be great if this lens has a hard infinity stop
