Jonathan371: I was so looking forward to receiving my petzval lens. As a wedding photographer I rely on a speed lens (50mm f/1.0) for beautiful shallow depth of field portraits. I was hoping the Petzval lens would fill a similar use in the 80mm range. I was dead wrong. After using the lens for about a month I can say it is the biggest piece of junk gear I ever owned. Lousy unflattering results.

I don't know how to say it without sounding offending...

SirSeth: My dream is that someone with brute force, like Amazon or Google will make a smart phone that allows a true choice against expensive cell carrier data allowing me to dispense with redundant mandatory data purchasing (I live in Wifi). I will buy that phone. True freedom = choice to not be force to pay for services I don't want. Let me choose my own network.

Just buy an unlocked phone and do everything you want with it. If you buy a phone at a cheaper price because it comes with a plan, then don't whine about having to pay the plan!

Sirandar: Interesting .... but no microSD and a 100$ whallop for 64GB

I am well and truly sick of Android and all it's battery mayhem. It seems Android has become a buggy mess. If FireOS was written from the ground up to actually manage your privacy and battery life this phone may actually survive.

Android seems totally incapable of preventing apps from constantly waking up phone even when it is locked in your pocket. Better Battery Stats helps but often doesn't because Android isn't really set up to identify what is actually waking your phone = deleted wakelocks and wakelocks you can't control

Once a month I am troubleshooting because my phone can't make it through the day in my pocket unused because of some update, issue or other. I don't even load new apps anymore because it is just too much trouble. Sometimes it is Google apps at fault, the Play Store for one. Try forgetting to manually kill that task and see what happens.

This does not happen on Iphone either.

BaldCol: I went on a photography 'workshop' last year with 4 other photographers and a pro.

3 of us had SLRs, tripods and the usual bag of kit. One had a Leica camera and a Channel handbag for her trip into the Sussex countryside! Tells me all I need to know about Leica users.

I'd love to see the pictures from this workshop.

Boy it'll have 1000 scratches all over it.

I doubt this, untreated aluminium oxidizes quickly, salty hand sweat would dig a hole in that premium case!

It is mirror polished (by hand) and then anodized.

On Leica T (Typ 701) First Impressions Review preview (2300 comments in total)
In reply to:

Tripeiro: I am sure the target market for this camera dosen`t have a clue about what optical or software correction is...

skeen, don't take it so personal, Tripeiro comment was both ironic, and right. True, many serious photographer will buy a T. I'd buy it too if I could afford one, is both sexy and a serious tool. Yet the market that Leica will make the most income from, is probably as vanity buy from rich feticists. What do you think 45 minutes of hand polishing would be for? But this does not subtract anything to the camera or the to the buyer, is a common thing for luxury objects. Take diver watches, they may be techically perfect, precise, able to resist to the deepest of the ocean... yet way less than 1% of sold divers waches are actually used to "dive".

On A travel-sized large-format 4x5 camera? article (219 comments in total)

There is no lens, or film holder, or a shutter, or a "real" viewfinder (good luck using a open finder for wide angle).
So you basically pay 150$ for a plastic cone?

On CP+ 2014: Hands-on with Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II article (200 comments in total)
In reply to:

kinglau711: It's a shame, 3 posts and no value added information.

What's the point of doing a hands-on ?

Hope you will do better next time.

Regards

Added information is, if you want to buy this camera plus accessory viewfinder, now you know your setup will be too ugly to be used near any light source. Maybe Canon did this so you're encouraged to test the sensor in low light...

On Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II: a quick summary article (535 comments in total)
In reply to:

qwertyasdf: What's the practical advantage of a multi-aspect sensor?
I'd like to use the full 15mpx and crop afterwards any day.

Why so many complaints about the lack of external controls? It's just a matter of getting used to. (unless it is as crappy as old NEX menus)
External controls make more sense in DSLRs when your eyes are glued to the VF, but in a liveview camera, it is not as essential.

Pratical advantage is, you can design a lens system to make a smaller image circle on a larger sensor you already have and save money in the process. Added lens performance also hopefully surpass the few corner pixel advantage so is a win/win scenario. Hopefully.

In reply to:

RichRMA: So why is it so hard to design a demountable lens with the same characteristics and SIZE as the one grafted on this body?

Because a camera mount takes up lot of physical space, and lot of this space is placed right where 50% of this lens is found.

On Olympus OM-D E-M10 First Impressions Review preview (618 comments in total)
In reply to:

Oleg Vinokurov: If only they included vf-4, then there would be a good point to buy this instead of older e-m5. In Japan new e-m5 seems will be cheaper than e-m10.

beacuse is a product near the end of its lifecycle. If the features suits you, is a bargain obviously, and will drop more after a new model is shown to public

In reply to:

pixelpushing: I think Olympus is diluting their product line unnecessarily. Unless this is a replacement for one of the prior models (it doesn't appear so, with the shuffling of features), they're just going to muddy the waters.

A new generation sensor and moving away/up from 16MP is going to be needed, soon.

I don't see this confusion in Olympus offer... they have 2 mirrorless lineups with or without evf. For each line there are 3 models, a cheaper one, a mid-range and a high end one. This specific one lose from the mid-range one something on the stabilizer and the weather sealing. Also, the long-been-here em-5 will obviously soon will revamped with wifi and some other blings.
Do you value weather sealing and 5 axes ibis? Get the EM5. Need wifi too? Wait few months. You have a lot of money? get the EM1. Looks simple to me...

In reply to:

yslee1: Why are the 20mm f/1.7 and 25mm f/1.8 so expensive? These should be inexpensive double gauss designs, so I don't really get the pricing, especially so when gems like the 45mm f/1.8 seem more in line with their larger counterparts.

I just hope panny's 20 will drop a little now that there are more options.. while I'm quite sure there is a cartel for m43 lenses price.
