Len_Gee: What lens is Zack using in the opening shots? Looks like some kind of pancake lens?
Also, his camera bag?
Not a Fuji X user yet, but looking to move up,from MFT kit.

I wouldn't, Fujifilm's lenses aren't that great.

W4YNE 1: Very nice second image of the boy playing on the beach. Looks like another winner in this lens from Sigma, and probably no doubt considerably cheaper than the big boys equivalent lenses.

Cheaper? :P

ppando: Too bad Sigma doesn't offer it in the Sony FE mount!

And they never will. This lens has a motor for PDAF,

In reply to:

flyto9: It might be a dump question to ask. Should I get 50mm or 32mm? I tried 50mm (Fullframe) and 40mm (20mm m43). Whenever I see a picture and want to capture it. 50mm seems to be a bit limited that I need to step back to capture the picture. It might be that I was used to my 20mm m43? I personally also whan to get the 85mm for good portrait. So would the 32mm be more appropriate in this case?

The 50mm art seems to have a better review than the 32mm art. Is it that much better? optically? IP? Bokeh?

thanks

There is no 32mm Art obviously.

In reply to:

ageha: The lenses still look like designed by Panasonic...

I own Pana Leica lenses for m43 and the newer ones are good. I'm not too happy about the 45/2.8 but it's one of the first ones. Anyway, the design looks misplaced on the T. I'm just complaining about the cheap plastic look at this price point.

Dirk Nuary: $7700 for just BW camera? You are too bad panda.... Just go for D4s that win in every aspects.

The DP Merrills actually have a pretty good B&W output, I like it.

straylightrun: Well at least it still makes more sense than the Nikon 1 system.

The Nikon 1 system is actually awesome.

On DxO Optics Pro 9.5 now integrates with Adobe Lightroom article (60 comments in total)
In reply to:

ageha: Nice but I rather use just DxO standalone, LR isn't very good anyway.

LG is too soft. I only use it for importing photos. DxO 9 and Silkypix Pro 6 are a lot sharper than LR and still show less noise. LR is pretty much the worst converter, at least for Nikon NEF and Panasonic's RW2 files.

At that price they won't have a chance unfortunately and they really need to bring better software to the market.

XF 27mm F2.8 I guess and some Think Tank Retrospective (Pinestone).

In reply to:

StevenE: The shots are barely larger than thumbnails

Yeah and at that size photos look a lot better. Some of them might fall apart at a decent resolution.

In reply to:

munro harrap: I can watch my lenses going in and out of focus and film it now. I am lost here. In what way is a Lytro different?

That's not the same. I think the possibilities might be easier to understand if you work in the motion picture post production. What Lytro is doing isn't new but it's great to have it in a small package. Anyway, Lytro will never be able to deliver the software you need to actually make proper use of it.

In reply to:

Robo2k: Those samples are extremely disappointing. Almost all of them are horribly exposed. Then again, this is my biggest complaint with DPR previews/reviews in general. How do you manage to make every camera look so damn terrible? I mean this set barerly scratches the possibilities of this camera (or any camera for that matter)!

Your reviews might be wordefully meticulous (an honest praise!) but, man, your samples galleries (and especially this one) are the worst.

Sure but it is too much to expect decent shots from the DPR team? I mean even my grandpa shoots better snapshots!

In reply to:

beavertown: 12 fps + 60fps in Jpg, APS-C Sensor, that puts Nikon 1 system to great shame.

Well done Sony.

Reading comprehension is overrated. ;)
