maxnimo: Horrible lens! Probably has plastic elements full of mold and mildew. And full of scratches too. And must be blurry all over. Probably can't even do color and has zero bokeh. Yuck!
But what if I'm wrong? What if this lens performs better than a Leica?
Relax... chill out... it's not the end of the world!The lesson here is that you can't trust anyone. Even a perfect person is not perfect and can be wrong! Only believe what you see with your own eyes. Trust no one!

Simply adorable! Now why can't Canon come out with something like mango-lime or a chocolate-vanilla?
I liked this review. It seemed straight and honest and to the point, without all the stuffy BS.
maxnimo: What we should be striving for is 240 fps video on true 240 fps monitors. The result would simply blow you away.
Video at 8K resolution and 240 fps would be close to ideal, but I certainly don't expect to see it this year... I'm not that foolish. But I would prefer 1080p /120fps video than 4K at 60 fps. Then the next step should be 4K at 120fps, then 1080p at 240fps, then 4K at 240fps... and then eventually to 8K at 300 fps - the ultimate.
Speaking of legalities, I realize it's illegal for us photographers to to shoot photos with such drones, but would it be legal for us to shoot people with bullets, blow up their homes and incinerate wedding parties, like the government does?
I know all about the human limit of perception, and the maximum happens to be about 300 FPS... that's when motion appears like looking out the window at real nature.120 FPS is a good start, as nearly everyone finds it far more soothing to the eye than 60 FPS, even when doing simple tasks. And have you ever seen a camera panning across a landscape in a film? Even with motion blur it looks like a jittery, fuzzy joke - technology from 100 years ago.
So we still have a bit more to go to reach the ultimate FPS.
maxnimo: Very nice.
I'm curious, though. Did he have a bodyguard with him? If he ever passed through New York or L.A. all his stuff would have been robbed within 10 minutes. But since I don't see any big city pics I assume he was smart enough to avoid those places, unless of course he had a bodyguard, or a loaded weapon.
JanePete: In NYC I was robbed in the park, robbed on a street, attacked in a subway station and nearly killed on a sidewalk by hooligans in a truck aiming for my head with a 2x4. This was all in broad daylight, and I didn't even possess anything of great value.So please don't tell me it's nonsense.
dtssounds: Your landscape photographs are great, but sorry to say, your people photographs are not on the same level as your landscape. Not that they are not good, they are just not great enough when compared to your landscape photos. But I admire your adventurous heart and wish to seem more of your next travels.
Or one could say that his landscape photos are even greater than his great people photos:)
"To send ten times the amount of data................... at a cost of bandwidth."
We are already sending 10,000 times the amount of data compared to 25 years ago.
25 years ago many people said that 4MB of ram was overkill.
25 years ago many people said a 640x480 8-bit color monitor was fantastic.
Are you one of those people?
At the widest focal length the edges seem blurry, but gets much sharper at around 30mm equiv. Anyone else notice that?

Truthfully, I'd prefer a stereo camera in the shape of a stuffed teddy bear or bunny. The eyes would be the lenses, of course.
I wonder which company will be the first to come out with a large sensor rugged camera. Hopefully before my grandkids die of old age.
From the samples I conclude that the camera has a lot of noise under ISO 800, and the photographer is a bit too addicted to wide angle lenses.
Daniel L: Hey. Toddler and crybabies. Biiiitching and whinniiing do you no good.
PM me how much you want to sell your Canon gear.
You can have my Canon gear for free... if you can find it in the trash.
It's a holographic 3D camera that can digitally store your subject down to a subatomic level, with an optional module that can store a person's mind and memories.
Methinks the photographer got a bad copy of the lens. The edges are quite blurry.
Blotches in the asphalt are most likely due to the asphalt having blotches, not the camera.
