  • Talking about turn on time, not "responsive". Turn on time is one of those things that nobody talks about or measures, but irritates the hell out of you depending on what you are doing. If you are ...
  • From R/C car racing, over 15ms is detectable. Under 5ms is not really noticeable. So if X-T1 is REALLY under 5ms, then it will not likely be detectable. Noticed capital "REALLY" because ...
  • Let's be sure we know who are the corporate trolls here. The shill posted a video that has already been discussed before, and is completely one sided with false information. Expect the community ...
  • All mirrorless can take any lens, but at the expense of very slow auto focus. The statement is not really accurate. More of an advertising gimmick if you don't include the cons.
  • Not me. Think he is only speaking for himself, or worse speaking for his factory sponsor. This site is called "Digitial Photography Review" because is all about what is the best out there. By ...
  • Somebody in the Nikon lens post was complaining about a tiny speck of dust on the lens, and want to return it. That would have been what, .0001% decrease in light. Here you are talking about 1/3 ...
  • That is a critical misunderstanding of what GM wants. Notice that the legal argument has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with "safety". Safety is only in the minds of the public to make the public buy ...
  • First, This has already been talked about when it first came up. Is no news, why bring it up again. Secondly, what irritates people are corporate shrills. They are not in the genuine interest of ...
  • Video is definitely a plus for mirrorless because Nikon cannot focus well in liveview. As for Sony being cheaper, I don't know. A7II is $1698. You can buy the obsolete A7 for $1k. Latest Nikon D610 ...
  • Would start with sensor size. FF is out question, so is APSC, M4/3 or 1". Larger the sensor, the better picture quality at high ISO. See the attached graph to see how much you loose by going to a ...
  • One thing about prediction is that there are many ways to fail, and only one way to be right. Remember the Lytro camera. Just search for it. So much heated debate. No matter how the believers were ...
  • Just looked at my 17-55 f2.8, yup, has a tiny piece of dust similar to this one. Used it for over 3 years everywhere. Probably more dust if I shine a flashlight at the right angle. Is advertised ...
  • I look at it differently. Many people has spent countless hours to produce this lens. I don't see Nikon as a rip-off fly by night outfit. Neither is this trying to rip anyone off. Nikon is not ...
  • You confuse expensive with luxury. Give you an example of luxury item, Apple gold plated watch. $20k for the same watch to show you are above the herd. Functionally the same as the base model. This ...
  • Hasselblad Luna is a luxury item. They put a polished wood grip on, and charged a premium. Read the forum, people are rolling on the floor laughing their hearts out over a "luxury" camera. People ...
  • Would be fair to say every single lens we all own has a speck of dust somewhere. If is not there now, it will be soon. Guarantee the lens for Gursky's $4.3mil Rhine II picture has a speck of dust ...
  • People are confusing luxury goods with expensive goods. Ferrari is a luxury good. A Combine harvester is an expensive good. They both cost just as much, but one is luxury and the other is a an ...
  • I do remember years ago when Japanese quality meant bottom of the barrel crap. American quality was good. Then it was Japanese quality was good, and American were bad. Then it was Chinese quality...

  • hahaha, you must be from Colorado. Heard they got some real good stuff there now with legalization.
