On Rare Canon EF 1200mm f/5.6L USM goes on sale in UK article (218 comments in total)
In reply to:

Frank_BR: Out of curiosity, I did the math. To buy at list price the full line of Canon lenses with 74 models, you would spend $146,281, which is less than the $160,000 asked for this single Canon 1200mm F5.6 lens!

Great idea! Thanks for putting it in perspective! This lens is really a joke...

No wonder why Nikon had not expected such a success...

On What is equivalence and why should I care? article (2062 comments in total)
In reply to:

forpetessake: Will this article finally stop those f2=f2=f2 stupid arguments? I doubt it. Stupid arguments come from stupid people: those same people who were explained the equivalence to many times before without any success.

p.2. of the article: " Four Thirds camera with a 50mm f/2 lens at ISO100 should produce a JPEG of the same brightness as a Full frame camera with a 100mm f/2 lens at ISO100 and, set to the same F-number and shutter speed" - the exposure settings - aperture, shutter speed, ISO - will be the same on both cameras. In this regards f/2=f/2 even if the FF picture will be more pleasing due to have 4x more total light.

It would be interesting to see what experts of the Rorschach test would say about him (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rorschach_test) - especially photos 4,7,10,11,12 - and about the people who think these are astonishing?

On Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 III First Impressions Review preview (2970 comments in total)

Now I understand the pricing strategy of the Canon G1 X Mark II better! Although EVF is an extra cost, the zoom range of the Canon is much longer, and the sensor is also larger. It will be interesting to see a review side by side, but the Canon has a chance to perform better...

Considering the Canon equivalent is exceptionally great, I wonder why they priced it this way? Just because it is black?

Forgive my ignorance...Where can I enjoy 4K Video? My TVs are only HD, my computer monitors are HD! What is the benefit of 4K Video over 2K? So I can crop? In still photography it makes sense to have higher and higher resolution, up to a limit of course, as I can have large prints with high MP photos, but for videos? Is there any 'everyday' benefit of having 4K over HD? Will they look nicer on a HD screen? Or it is only for professional film making and large screens? If so, why put in in an amateur body?

Could you, please, do similar tests for the 7D?

"70-200s of all makes among least reliable lenses"

OR

the most abused ones... which is not a surprise, as possibly that is the range most people find themselves to shoot at...

In reply to:

nixda: Here are two things I'd like to see in a camera that haven't been mentioned before:

1. Square sensor. The image circle is a, um, circle, so why tossing out valuable sensor real estate? Aspect ratios can be selected via the menu or in post-processing, if desired. Also, one wouldn't have to struggle with landscape vs. portrait orientation and all that brings with it when it comes to holding a camera or mounting it to tripod heads.

2. The edges of the bottom plate should be shaped to be compatible with the Arca-Swiss standard.

How about a sensor that has circle shape? Then we would not 'lose' any information...

pete zeugma: only problem I haveever had is the camera groupings.
please return the 1D forum to 1D only cameras and create a 5D/6D petty squabble forum

I agree, that would be great!

VJVIS: BORING, Next...

Apart from bringing down the price of other mirrorless cameras, this is a total waste of time, money and effort, but I am quite happy the prices of other mirrorless cameras will come down.

Boring, NEX
