Good stuff.

Amazing photographer, but most of all, a humanist. His photos portray the human element inside the big city in such an elegant way.

On article Medium-format mirrorless: Hasselblad unveils X1D (1186 comments in total)

This a great new system, all this quality in a camera that is hardly larger than a Sony A7 or Olympus EM1.

Astrotripper: Nice, another confirmation of how good this lens is wide open. Looks like Panasonic engineers got their priorities straight when designing this one.

For equivalence trolls, show me a 24mm FF lens that is this good in the corners at f/2.8 :-)

ZEISS Batis 25 f2.0 lens.

Should be an interesting series. I can recommend the photos from George Steinmetz, he as a couple of nice books, including one over the Empty Quarter of Arabia.

Two things come out of this:
1. The high quality of the photos and portfolios submitted;
2. The ignorance, envy, and shallowness of some of the commenters.

biza43: Principal Digital Imaging Evangelist... really? Is it a matter of faith?

Ok, but then the title "Technology Evangelist" would be more appropriate, I think.

On article 2016 Roundup: $1200-2000 ILCs part 1 - Crop-Sensor (187 comments in total)

I don't see the need to have two split for "interchangeable lens cameras 800-1200" and now this "crop-sensor interchangeable lens cameras 1200-2000". Cameras like the Sony A6300 and Pentax K3 (arguably some of the best choices) that were in the former round-up, would also fit nicely in this round-up.

Impressive, and very timely, given Euro 2016, Copa America, and Olympics. This lens is a mainstay for sports shooters.

On article Magnum signed square print sale returns for third year (82 comments in total)

Thanks for posting this news, I was not aware of it. As for some depreciative comments below, I am sure that there is a reason why such authors are not hired by Magnum, they must be really good photogs...

biza43: Given that it is double the price of the competition, it better be better than the competition?

Barney, thanks for the reply. I appreciate your point of view, indeed it seems to be a very good lens. My point is that, for what Sony is charging for the camera, it better be really good. And it seems to be.
Regards.

biza43: I am glad that there are still human beings that place themselves under danger and harsh conditions to document wars and suffering. It requires courage to go there and take pictures, period.

To those who say are tired of this same BS, or whatever, keep hiding your head in the sand, and go shoot rosy photojournalistic stories. War, conflict, human suffering, gloom, despair, agony ,depression, and misery, are unfortunately part of the daily life of many millions of human beings in the 21st century in the so-called civilized world... it is a lot easier to shoot beauty and wonderment subjects that uplift the spirit...

Now you are being facetious. Please point to where I wrote that I appreciate war and suffering, never wrote that. You visited every country in the world? Really? Even if that is true, did you visited the ones at war, and the war zones? How did you come up with 99.7% figure? I am not conditioned nor do I defend a particular approach of PJ work. As I said, it takes courage to go and take pictures in a war zone; did you go to Iraq or Afghanistan in your wonderful world tour? How many were killed in Iraq in yesterday's bombings? But by all means, keep living in your rosy and beautiful world, and forget that there are still human beings that are not fortunate enough to live in your world...

In reply to:

biza43: I switched from Canon EOS to Sony Alpha 7 system, due to lighten my backpack, without compromising on quality. So I am not here defending Canon, but indeed the title is a bit exaggerated... Canon catching up? Catching up with what? With still being the best selling brand in cameras and lenses?

Anyway, it is good to see that DPR is finally reviewing a Canon 1DX camera; the Mark I, released in 2011, was never reviewed here:)

@AngularJS: if you were replying to me, you missed by a long margin... I was not criticizing Canon...
