  • Bear with me! I have proof that we're mostly all shiny-happy-people holding hands, here. MeVee's language doesn't read, to me, like "asking for your arm": That's unreasonable? It's MeVee's request ...
  • Casting what MeVee wrote as "projection," "emotional content" or a "diatribe" reads, to me, like rhetoric. Those are loaded words. "Rhetoric" = you have an opinion, and you're trying to persuade us ...
  • Meh. C'mon, Roger, you could have stopped at "there have always been trolls and fanboys." Anonymous internet screen-names are ghosts whether they have "anonymized addresses" or not. You aren't ...
  • Nope. It's equally "obvious" to me that your claim about how "most" photographers conceive of the term "microcontrast" is prima facie wrong. I've only seen one or two other people discuss it here ...
  • The 100/2.8 is the first Tokina lens I've ever used. And while I knew, generally, that it had a nice reputation, I wouldn't have sought it ought specifically--it was just a nice twist that my ...
  • If the guy who supplied the definition you're using later repudiates his explanation, then yes, the "meaning of the word" as you understand it has changed. You'll have to find someone or something ...
  • Been a while since you visited Yannick's blog, eh? 2019 Yannick is a little different than 2016 Yannick. Even he's not preaching the "3D-Pop" junk anymore. He now shoots a set of modern, ...
  • Me too. If I can use the capability a new camera or lens offers to improve my art, I don't care who makes it. And maybe it's just me, but I find that what I like to explore and shoot really falls ...
  • So strong MTF response with high / fine line-per-millimeter counts doesn't suggest strongly- perceived contrast in high-frequency photographic detail? That surprises me, but I'm cool with whatever ...
  • Replied in So much for $2K.
    Three thoughts: (1) The Sony A7.2 for $998 is a screaming deal. I know that camera has some rough edges, but it also offers some serious core photographic capability. If somebody just four or five ...
  • Replied in Bokeh's great
    Bokeh's really fantastic from the Tokina--pretty difficult to distinguish from the DC lenses at similar apertures. Both lenses use 9 aperture blades, though the DC lenses use slightly-rounded ...
  • If these edits represent "the look" the market wants, will AI / Machine-Learning "computational photography" algorithms be trained to produce it straight-out-of-camera or straight-on-upload,...

  • Hi Jjcpa, Short answer: Beyond equivalent. I think the Tokina may be a better portrait lens than the 105DC. The Tokina I shot was sharp, easy to focus, and built as well-or-better than the Nikkor ...
  • Created discussion thread Wow, Tokina: I like your 100/2.8.
    Since I don't watch "The Angry Photographer" or read Ken Rockwell, I realize I'm probably the last person in the known Nikon photogra-verse to try Tokina's 100mm f/2.8 AT-X PRO D tele-macro lens. Y ...
  • Remember his line? "I don't always drink beer, but when I do, I drink Dos Equis. Stay thirsty, my friends." Well: I don't always use UV / Protection filters, but when I do . . . . . . I've been ...
  • Oh, right, right: the "noosphere" that is this comment thread . Of course! Or the "noosphere" that pronounced the Nikkor 50mm 1.8S one of the "worst" photographic products of 2018, until it was ...
  • No, really: every system is a dead system. Should you buy a Canon camera tomorrow? But the EF system is being replaced by RF, so it's dead! And EF-M can't adapt to RF so it's even dead-er! And the ...
  • Meh, I don't care. Neither do you really, right? We both have better things to do. Personally, I think Amazon opens up the back-end of DPReview and sees neither cheese nor logical fallacies, but ...
  • No; but we've reached the cynical nadir of various ugly internet-driven marketing and media trends. Stick a fork in it—DPReview is done. The last person here ought to turn off the lights on the ...
  • Let's. Because I'm missing the reason a Canon EOS-R shooter couldn't slap an EF Sigma 100/1.4, 135/1.8, or a Canon EF 100/2, 135/2 or 70-200/2.8 on his or her choice of Canon's three adapters, and ...
