On Hasselblad unveils pixel-shifting 200MP H5D-200c MS article (243 comments in total)
In reply to:

Jogger: In 2000 years the 200mp images from this camera will seem like primitive cave drawings to us now.

You mean they'll be considered great art?

I doubt anyone will be talking about these images in 2000 years, but they'll still be talking about cave paintings.

Or they'll be extremely spicy.

It's a lovely country and the people are very friendly, just don't care for the humidity.

LarryK: As many bags as I bought from Tamrac, I figured they be set for life.

I like their big semi hard storage cases.

Well, you can add "discontinued", I was thinking of picking another one or two up.

Simon97: The large open structures look very modern for their age. Note that he uses large format cameras which should have the digital geeks up in arms.

That's true, I love a good view camera, even a bad view camera.

On Nikon AF-S Nikkor 35mm f/1.8G Lab Test Review preview (76 comments in total)
In reply to:

beavertown: How super embarrassing for Nikon!

Sigma 35mm scored an astonishing 43, while this Nikon 35mm scored sadly 36.

No wonder Nikon has been switching off some Sigma lenses since the D5200 released, as they know the Art lenses perform better than their overpriced lenses optically and properly better in many ways.

The once laughing stock has become the king of lenses.

Watch out Canon, they may surpass you someday as they have already surpassed Nikon.

No, it's junk, I've never seen a good one in person. I think reviewers are getting bought off. I've owned Nikon for forty years, and I don't apologize for their shortcomings, they've made plenty of turkeys over the years.

If you'd like to buy my friend's, I'm sure he'd be glad to get rid of it.

The Nikkor 24-120 is a piece of junk, my friend was foolish enough to buy one.

What? thanks for tipping me off! I haven't checked lenses in a while, and I've always wanted a 24-105 for my Nikons.

I'll gladly send my Money to Sigma since they appear to be paying attention.

And yeah, the Canon could be better, but it's all there was at one time.

On Nikon AF-S Nikkor 35mm f/1.8G Lab Test Review preview (76 comments in total)
In reply to:

JordanAT: That's one big lens (and big pricetag) for something as (optically) pedestrian as a 35/1.8. If I didn't know better, I'd think they were making the lenses intentionally larger and heavier than they needed to be to justify the price and make the photogs feel like they had a "big"lens.

I bought the last one they brought out, and was surprised when my old f2 was so much better.

Nikon should quit bringing out "me too" lenses at premium prices.

On Canon announces 16-35mm F4L and 10-18mm F4.5-5.6 lenses article (367 comments in total)
In reply to:

Joachim Gerstl: I'm very happy to see this lens. I hope it's better than the 17-40L. I was close to buy the 2.8/16-35L but now I will get this instead.

Don't buy the 2.8 II, it is an utter disappointment, the only thing I can say is that it was way better than the Mark 1. I was going to buy a 17-40, but then Nikon brought out the 14-28 and I gave up on Canon UWAs.

Disgusting journalism.

Great way to go though! Better that : doing what she loved than fading away in withered old age ...

On Phase One announces IQ250 50MP CMOS medium format back article (197 comments in total)
In reply to:

68craigdale: If you use one of these backs for your living you do so because you know it is way better than any FF. Period, as they say in the US of A.

I get MF stuff in all the time, and when I composite it with D800 stuff nobody can tell the difference.

Coming from an Large Format film background, I'm all for quality, but paying for something you can't see is silly.

Geez, the BH-55 went up since I bought mine, and it was too expensive then.
