nathantw: I like the way this looks, but I'm sure if I buy it people will think it's a murse (man purse). It just has "that look" of my wife's purse. Leica sell other bags at their store in San Francisco that are probably better for guys (different colors and types) like the Brixton bags. https://www.leicastoresf.com/store/other/cases-bags

Interesting word. Never saw it before and had to look it up.

I personally carry a burnt orange Tenba messenger bag. When I got it my coworker said it was a girl's bag. I laughed. It got stolen from my car a few months later and I purchased another in the same color. Didn't want it in traditional black.

This is great. I like it a lot. Thank you for making it.

You mean I could make my Gigapan pay for itself and all I need to do is take an award winning photo? Yeah, no problem.

I know this isn't going to be a popular post, but since when did it become so important to having a video of your location shoots to getting your photographs looked at? I thought photography was about still images, but now we're expected to have professional videos taken with drones too? It's getting to be too much.

That dramatic music was so unnecessary. Cool idea for the product though.

I shudder at the thought of seeing portraits or party photos taken with this lens at its widest angle. It was bad enough seeing all those celebrity photos taken with a 14mm lens and the distorted bodies with the tiny legs and the people at the edges look flattened. It was a horrible trend that's going to be even worse now that this lens came out.

As for the lens itself, I'm jealous of Canon users that can buy this. I'd love something like this. Yeah, yeah, Sigma has one.

On Making 'Art': We go inside Sigma's lens factory article (192 comments in total)

I always hated Hoya glass. I remember buying Hoya filters because they were cheaper and boy, I got my money's worth since they were terrible. However, after seeing the picture of the Hoya boxes that Sigma uses for these Art lenses I have a new respect for them.

Thank you for the great "tour!"

nathantw: I'm really impressed. But, how well does the Tamron perform at 14mm? For those that say it's only one mm, look at the comparison photo. That one mm was the difference between seeing the top of the Space Needle and just seeing the support structure.

Funny about the 75-150. I loved that zoom (I have the Nikon 75-150 series E). It was a lot smaller and lighter than the 80-200 and the modern 70-200 and it was relatively sharp for its day.

LOL, got me there, Dianoda.

Finally. Been waiting for this for almost 2 years now. Much cheaper to get this than to buy the new FL lenses that Nikon offers. ;-)

Cool, I'll take one with the Hasselblad film and the other with the Nikon digital but with a Hasselblad lens and see which one wins...if it's creative enough.

I'm sure you saw the reports that some guy actually hired people to make him a proofing 8x10 sensor that cost as much as a house, right? He said it's nothing spectacular but it would save him a lot of money on making proofs.

Yup. That's when the fainting comes about.

I guess their SD-line of Powershots is gone. Those were the ones with the optical viewfinder that I found to be so convenient at times.

Wow, I need to get connected to some fine art curators! Once in the club it seems the sky is the limit for amount of money you'll get for art.

ThomasSwitzerland: Ken Rockwell has just published snapshots on the D750 with the 20mm f/1.8.

To me this represents outstanding journalistic quality in time and precision. Why cannot the so much larger <dpreview> deliver?

I don't agree with the quote you posted from KR, but I too always shoot with large basic. Use RAW+basic just in case and that just in case comes in handy a lot.
