On ZEISS announces 'no compromise' Otus 55mm F1.4 news story (507 comments in total)
In reply to:

wepwawet: From the blog:
">Many photographers are used to taking pictures with autofocus these days. Why does the new lens only have manual focusing?
We want the user to have the freedom to employ the focusing position as an artistic means, since we are dealing here with one of the most important tools that a photographer has at his disposal."

And this is prevented by autofocus, how... ?

Because all AF/MF switches have broken off my lens

On Fujifilm XF 55-200mm F3.5-4.8 R LM OIS review preview (136 comments in total)

Fuji zoom lenses are half a stop faster to compensate the fact that they cheat half a stop ISO on their bodies.

It's ok, Fuji, I (we) still love you ;)

GEEZ, the IQ180 can even resolve the texture of the backing paper, there's a scratch on the right of the water colours on the top left.

I like the IQ180 as a benchmark, how about also adding drum scanned film?

Rather than wanting to know what the iPhone means to the photographer, I'd want to know what does a photographer mean nowadays???

On Nikon unveils tiny Coolpix S02 for 'trendy individuals' news story (63 comments in total)

I don't own this camera, but if this camera is "ULTRA-CHIC ANSWER FOR CAPTURING AMAZING IMAGES"
Then there must be no words in my dictionary that can describe the pictures the D800E takes. (Or even the Panasonic LX3 for that matter)

On Sony A3000 preview (678 comments in total)

Weird...while Oly and Panny makes DSLR styled bodies their flagship modle...Sony makes it their budget model...

Anyways, at $400, I think it's extremely competitive.

So it has the size disadvantage of a DSLR, and the lack of fast PDAF for a mirrorless...
can't people just get a grip?

How come we are so backwards nowadays.
no built-in MP3 player in the Canon 1DX?!?! Cannot believe it

If it had one, I would hang it round my neck with headphones plugged in, and be the ultimate hipster.

On Pentax Q7 Review preview (239 comments in total)

If there is a score for looks, the Q would score high. With so many colour combinations, one would suit you.
Why don't the D4 and 1DX offer customization, after all they are premium products worthy of premium service.

In reply to:

AngryCorgi: I gotta be honest, I think this is the weakest "First Impressions Review" I've seen on DPR.

Yes, previews were used to be 3 pages.
Aren't the office excited about this new offering?

On Panasonic announces Leica DG Nocticron 42.5mm F1.2 (again) news story (190 comments in total)
In reply to:

Mike99999: @goshigoo: "Also, IQ wise, 6D + 85 f/1.8 @ f/2.4 could be better than this lens.
35mm FF still has it's value when shallow Dof is needed"

No. A Leica full frame camera is king, yes, but by no means good value. Canon and Nikon FF cameras are for dorks. What's the point of all this shallow DoF when your ridiculous camera gets in the way all the time. A full frame DSLR is to photography as a cargo truck is to driving cars.

A cargo truck is what professional truck drivers use to get a load from A to B, sure, but in my spare time I'd much rather enjoy driving a fine German or Italian automobile.

And in this realm, a Leica M9 or Sony RX1 really wins. But the system Panasonic and Olympus have built up is a very fair alternative, with great lenses.

goshigoo is right, and you are completely wrong.
