I love to see my pictures on my new iPad, but I never make picture with the little piece of glass on front nor on the back of this thing. If anyone wants to use it like a camera it is ok with me, but don't call the result a photo.
zodiacfml: Canon is worse than Toyota.
I can't argue on that, because I never drove a Canon. But I do like my full hybrid.
I'm convinced I should buy a H5D, as soon as I have to shoot under water.
Mr. Heisler, great picture, cool shot. Thanks for sharing your secrets. It takes more than just equipment to produce pictures like this. You've got that. I see, how important planning a shot can be.
After seeing these pictures I'm glad I don't own the best camera of 2012. My old thing does not need a 30 ft long gangway to create some DOF.
I want to thank the whole Dpreview team for all the good work last year, for this beautiful and informative site and wish them and all the readers here Happy Holidays too.
You think this could be a hoax from someone who is testing his photoshop skills?
Great achievement Nikon. I'm glad I discovered the quality of your products and im glad with the great pictures I made with your lenses. It was an investment in quality for the rest of my life. I think I will go on using Nikor, as long as I can handle a DSLR.
Art is emotion. Even in one picture can be a story of life and dead. To be able to tell a story in one picture must be art and emotion.Great pictures. DP thanks for the link.
I just briefly tested this program, but I think it has some advantage to the other programmes I use. It looks very intuitive. I'm glad I came across this article. Thanks Dpreview.
Ashmills, thanks for your addition. Im still learning. But if I was in the market for a 35 mm lens, I sure would consider this one to buy. I'm impressed by what I can read here and the price Sigma wants for this full frame lens.
Undergrounddigga, Just put your 17 mm f 1.8 on a full frame camera and compair the result. It still will be a 17 mm, with only f 3 or less, and a small image circle. Equivalent, only says you get the same composition, not the same picture. But I think you would not see the diference?
I'm impressed, great pictures. But could be expected, when looking what the camera and the lenses will cost. Just above my budget.
To thejohnnerparty, the Nikon DX 35 mm f 1.8 costs $200. The price you mentioned will buy you a 1.4 for a FF.
Richard, don't read the comments here. Just see what people like from the things you make in your order book. Next time again do a press release, because there are always persons, who want to tweak their gear.
And we can dream on. Every one a camera to his or her own specs. I'm sure one day, everyone can order a camera to his or her specs. I don't think I will be around anymore when that day has come. So I go for second best and keep my gear I thought was the best (for my money).
HarrieD7000: Great pictures. Dean Holland shows, you don't need an expensive camera. Just a good eye to make the composition and some tools.I think I never can produce pictures like these, not even with a D4 or a D1x, and all the tools on earth.
Dear HubertChen,Thanks for your remarks. I look very critical to my own pictures. And although my family is pleased with my work, I'm convinced the results could be better. And yes sometimes the pictures are great, but my goal is to be able to make great pictures (almost) every time I press the button. I think I still have to make lots and lots of pictures, before I'm there.

Great. I hoop we soon have lots of tests, so we can see what to expect of a new lens.
This is great. Still a lot of money for me, but this camera is really on my wish list. Although photography is just a hobby for me too.
