Mark Alan Thomas: Here’s the link to the Lightroom 6 Standalone version which Adobe has basically hidden from customers:

Click “edit” to switch to upgrade pricing.

Yes - I can confirm that this works.

On 000_Dan_11mm_f5.6 photo in dpreview review samples's photo gallery (10 comments in total)
In reply to:

mpgxsvcd: That lens looks great. However, the picture looks fairly noisy for ISO 400.

Exposure +0.35 and shadows +50 in post. Noise is probably from trying to compress the dynamic range when the shot was taken to preserve highlights as much as possible. The original scene must be extremely contrasty and, for any ISO, noise would be unavoidable in such circumstances unless you stack.

How could banning it to be sold to a foreigner and leave the country provide additional time for study? The seller, whose financial interest is being negatively affected by this ban, is more likely to open it up for studies by an organization that proposed the ban? If they were this cooperative to begin with, surely a ban like this is completely unnecessary, and only unnecessarily puts them in a mock-enemy position? I thought state robbery of private interests were completely opposite to what this government stands for. So much of this does not add up. But of course government decisions are not required to be logical.

xpda: What will this offer that I don't already have with the Panasonic 45mm macro lens? (A serious question. Do I need both lenses?)

The wider aperture allows more DoF control in non-macro situations and the Power OIS should be better for video than the Mega OIS in the macro lens - should is the important word here as we don't know for sure. The lighter weight and smaller size might also be interesting given the M4/3 paradigm.

On More things we found cut in half (CP+ 2015 edition) article (139 comments in total)
In reply to:

MarshallG: How do they cut these things in half? Do they disassemble them, cut the parts in half, and reassemble?

It makes sense to assume that the cutting was done separately before assembly. Look at the Canon 11-24/4 in picture 14.

maxnimo: To be fair, there's no way to tell the size of this camera from those images. For all we know, that lens could be 6 inches in diameter and extend 18 inches.

The grip must have something of an upper limit, given the expected sizes of human hands. Still, this could have been designed with giants in mind.

In reply to:

photogeek: Does it tilt back any?

90 degrees is the range, so in your scenario, you will need something else to help it, such as a piece of white card.

The interface is a bit quirky. You need to grab an item then drop it into your chosen space.

Marketing tactic? Maybe. Photography is not art and paying high prices to collect photographs is stupid? Sour grapes.

marc petzold: why is that these images turned out bad, i meant...the ppl are handling it here are so called pro's...aren't they? i don't see a medium format advantage from these shots, but noisy compositions - no offence, guys..well...you can do much better, can you? i meant - you can do this with any APS-C/DX DSLR or DSLM...
these examples.

I am surprised you did not mention p&s compacts or even iphone ...

In reply to:

AdamT: Since when did the GM5 have IBIS ? -

To Quote

What we like:
◾1,166K-dot EVF
◾Sensor-shift image stabilization
◾Compact, lightweight, tough body design

In the final comment it's also claimed to have a pop-up flash, whilst the picture clearly shows the clip-on unit. These round-up articles are probably rushed out for the shopping season?

There is no discussion about the images taken with walking towards the camera high frame rate AF test? Hopefully it will be discussed in the full review.

cd cooker: Sony, will we get A7R II, A7S II also? Your product roadmap is very confusing. Why give us so many different choices when u probably can merge them together into at least just 2 models instead. Also, are we expecting annual update for this kind of "expensive" cameras?

No. It's a good thing. Not only for people focused on features, but also for those who are keen on price. Newer models will generally press the previous models' prices down. Good for everyone.

Yes. We expect annual updates for this kind of expensive camera. Why not? Sony's culture was formed in the consumer electronics industry.

Chronis: exactly what Canon needed at this point... another expensive lens for those already invested in their system...

shows how out of touch they are, building trimmings for bodies that (given the choice) any sensible customer would have at the bottom of his list...

I thought the 'sensible customer' remark pertains to people who are not lumbered with history, i.e. those able to make a clean choice today without bias. 'Bottom of the list' does make some sense given Canon's seeming reluctance to update

With dslr and big and heavy lenses, why not Nikon?

On Hands-on with the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GM5 article (304 comments in total)
In reply to:

vroger1: Anyone think there'll be a "Leica" version?? They didn't bother with the GM1- buth this one will sell like hotcackes...I think.

Leica may not be entirely happy about people using Olympus, Panasonic and Sigma branded lenses on a Leica camera. Hence they clone Panasonic fixed lens cameras no problem, but M43 probably not.

The Squire: £825?
That's only £26 more than WEX is taking pre-orders on the LX100!
The cheapest way to buy a red dot yet!?!?

Exactly. Esp. if someone needs LR. However, in the UK Panasonic is prone to have somewhat frequent promotion drives.

On Fujifilm announces weather-resistant XF 50-140mm F2.8 article (223 comments in total)
In reply to:

Serious Sam: peevee1......

M43 has some good lens like the 35-100 2.8 only let down by the sensor. It is amazing how Panasonic can make that lens so light.

Although the price for this lens is high, but then I look at Sony FE 70-200mm F4 G OSS....Fuji price is not bad. Things like this lens will always be expensive. Lucky I did not wait for this and bought XF 55-200 F3.5-4.8

According to numerous test pictures and example pictures, the 35-100 does not have LoCA, which seems to indicate that it is a true APO lens, or somehow achieved what a true APO lens can achieve in effect, something of a rarity in fast zooms. The distortion and vignetting (the adjective 'huge' is purely subjective and meaningless) are easily corrected in post or even in camera, unlike LoCA which current algorithms are still struggling with. Lens optical design should be holistic with the cameras the lens is designed for, hence spending a lot of weight, size, quality compromises and money on things that can be easily dealt with in computers and ignoring issues that computers find difficult is very bad design, from which the Panasonic does not suffer.

Anonymous trolls accusing you of stealing your own work will have no real impact if they stay anonymous - those who believe them are not intelligent to worry about - and the moment they decide to reveal who they really are, end of story.

Fundamentally those who are swayed by anonymous rumours are not ones you want to impress anyway, perhaps.
