lost_in_utah: I was expecting Multnomah Falls!

I prefer this to the multiple-exposure shot -also overdone ;*)

In reply to:

zsedcft: I had a feeling that Barney was British. Some of his responses to other posts definitely had a thick layer of sarcasm. I am British, so found it rather refreshing vs. the deliberately inoffensive responses that the American moderators on websites usually give.

I live in the states so have had to reign my sarcasm in otherwise people think I am just being mean.

Back to the lens... it looks nice but I don't think I will ever get one as it has a ridiculous front element like the Nikkor 14-24 f/2.8. I think you also said in the other review that it wasn't a true Nikon 15mm so my 16-35mm f/4 is probably just as wide and can easily take an ND filter. I am planning to get a Rokinon 14mm f/2.8 for astro as that is the only reason I would need a fast, wide lens. Good on Tamron for keeping innovating, though. I think that quality of Tokina's 11-16mm f/2.8 and Sigma's art line has really redefined what 3rd party lens makes think they can achieve.

"I live in the states so have had to reign my sarcasm in otherwise people think I am just being mean."
As a sarcastic curmudgeon, myself, trust them --sometimes they are right. 8^)
A better reason to tone down the sarcasm is multi-culturalism, especially on sites like this. Sarcasm does nothing to increase understanding when people don't understand what you mean.

On Pentax K-S2 added to studio scene article (71 comments in total)
In reply to:

Scott Eaton: I'm noticing something RAWs in many cases actually look worse in terms of color than JPEGs. RAWs are actually blowing out colors in some instances while JPEGs are holding detail. Just look at the spools of thread and details on the Beatle's charictures compared to pretty much any other camera - the Pentax K-S2 in RAW mode is blowing out the colors very badly and detail looks sludgy. Maybe some of you should get off your smart phones and use a decent monitor. Why would I want a camera that seems to be using a 10yr old Canon color engine?

" Maybe some of you should get off your smart phones and use a decent monitor."
I get very tired of being told what to do by some punk on the web.

Mister Roboto: Vaseline on the lens!

Either way, it ain't the same thing.

Wonderful sample shots.
I want the lens because of them.

StefanW: Of course they can't disclose their roadmap and because of culture aspects and not loosing their face they can't confirm they had done anything wrong in the past and would do it differently if they would start all over again.

Even though I typically expect these kind of political answers that don't say anything I am surprised that most of the answers are even more extreme as they sound like Nikon don't need to do much development in the future because their current products match already everything the customers might demand.

Maybe Nikon meets the customer demand of the Japanese market, but looking at the overall declining sales of Nikon, maybe Nikon should rethink their answers ... actually rather rethink their strategy.

That makes sense, Adrian, though after looking through the OVF's of several entry-level SLR's recently (like the D5500), the view is so abysmal I can't see the marketing advantage.

AK41: Nowadays going away I, not one of these 3,000 shots /24h chaps, just take I enough flash cards copying them on MacBook SSD as they fill up. So far 6x32GB was enough for a two-weeks,even three-week expeditions. Just erase "not for personal eternity" shot every night. )

That gives him one copy, though; "The point is to take drive like this on your travels so as to have a second copy of the files."

So you're saying he needs the Macbook, and the drive.

In reply to:

enenzo: Touch screen is for amateurs :-) and how do you use a touch screen when using the EVF?

Yeah --I remember when we all said the same about the I-Phone.
There's no reason for a modern camera not to have a touch-screen. Don't like it? Turn it off...amateurs...

In reply to:

Vladik: "The a6000 produces some very impressive image quality - at base ISO it matches the Nikon D5300 for resolution. This puts it quite some way ahead of the Fujifilm X-M1, the Canon EOS 700D/ Rebel T5i and the Olympus OM-D E-M10. "

Sony's resolution appears to be ahead of D5300 in my opinion, not a huge leap, but surely visible.

Definitely visible. The Nikon has sightly less noise (raw at any ISO) so choose your weapon :)

Boky: ...the colours seem washed-out... bit more attention to lens/body pairing is required I'd say.

Sharp enough to use the camera, but afraid to change the default settings?

In reply to:

mpgxsvcd: I am starting to think that a Canon Camera, with a Sony Sensor, Nikon Processing, Panasonic Videos capabilities, Fuji Hybrid Viewfinder, and Olympus 5 axis stabilization would pretty be the end all be all.

If only they would all collaborate on one camera together the world would be a better place.

What are you, some kinda Commie?

cpkuntz: Why do kids like junk? You can get a Nikon FM2 for $200, or an FE for $100.

Exactly, B. I'm sure none of the geezers here ever did things just to be different (hip) --and if that was combined with flustering the elders it was a bonus!
