hrt: What would Nikon be offering two years from now ?

@Lucas_ That don't suck batteries and aren't dog slow, can track focus on moving targets and can be used with all my existing glass? Then, I'm in!

On A look at the Lomography Petzval 85mm F2.2 lens article (145 comments in total)

I quite enjoyed the contrasting reviews. Refreshing!

For me, it's intellectual interest, because I relate more with Mr. Westlake's evaluation. I enjoyed Ms. Patton's hands-on a lot, though.

Gosman: I love this article and seems to come out of my own mouth. Indeed I'm the one on the Nikon forum that pinned the name "Guinea Pigs" upon the early adaptors of the D800. I urged everyone to wait. What I didn't know was that it would take Nikon 2 years to upgrade and make the must needed changes. It is a huge lesson to all of us about product life cycles. This is why I decided to stay with Pentax and the K-3 which is now at the height of the crop sensor life cycle. I decided to stay away from full frame for awhile and see where the product cycle takes it along with the mirror less cameras. And yes, I am a Kodachrome baby and it is the first thing I thought of when I saw the ISO (we called it ASA) was 64!

Pentax spam.

I agree too.

Edit: Frankly, I wonder if it's paid advertising by Pentax. "Pentax" should be filtered as spam. It's embarrassing how every thread eventually has 20% of the posts talking about Pentax, and how Pentax is better and how Pentax does it right, and Pentax, Pentax, PENTAX!

Talk to their marketing department. If the cameras are that good, they should be the market leader.

Please stop crapping our threads.

PK24X36NOW: Here's what I'd like to know...What is the RAW buffer limit? This piece of information seems to be MIA in all the press releases and specs so far...

Wow, so, double the size! Thanks for the link, PK.

In reply to:

digiart: Four articles in just two days about a camera that is a small improvement on a previous model! No wonder CANIKON own the DSLR market ;)

I'd actually like two more:
- Hands-on
- Scene tests

Pretty interesting info here, and commentary as it Thom's style.

It's so rare that one has an innovative idea.

I like it!

Richard Murdey: I don't feel concept of "early adopter" even holds true with dSLRs. Every new model is always better than the old one. Your only choice, given how the price drops over time, is when to buy it, and the only gamble/risk is whether you are going to be getting a camera that will be replaced with a new model in four years (D700), two years (D800), or just one (D600).

Not only the D600. Also D800 (and reportedly D4) left focus issue, SB-900 overheating, extensive back-focus issues reported (and confirmed by me) on D7000 and D800.

On Apple to cease development of Aperture article (421 comments in total)
In reply to:

greencurry: I'm concerned that Apple's infatuation with the aery faery "Cloud" (cue divine trumpets and chorus of angels) will result in this new app being unable to organize large libraries of photos on my own drives. Will it be able to handle hundreds of GBs and tens of thousands of photos? If so, and with the same editing abilities available, perhaps in the form of Aperture-like "bricks" that the advanced user adds on and the recreational user never sees, I'll be good. If not Lightroom 6 will probably be showing up about when the last Aperture update starts getting really stale.

Come over to Lightroom.

That said, I would be outraged if my daily workflow software was canceled. I feel your pain.

On Apple to cease development of Aperture article (421 comments in total)
In reply to:

VadymA: Can somebody clarify what happens with all Aperture adjustments to RAW files (like brushes, curves, cloning, etc) when converting to another application, like Lightroom etc?

Man that sucks. I'm a Lightroom user and I would be so lost if I ever had to switch.

In reply to:

nrantoul: Man, this really sucks. I've got several years worth of work on Aperture, 4 separate libraries and an heavily invested in Aperture and its wonderful controls.
Thanks, Apple.

Sorry brother.

I'm an enthusiastic Apple fan and Mac user, but I've been using Lightroom from day 1 and it's wonderful.

Come on over.

Just another Canon shooter: It is amazing that the author thinks of the removal of the AA filter as a plus. By this site's own admission, there is little gain in resolution but visible "gain" in aliasing, like here:

http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/image-comparison/fullscreen?attr18=daylight&attr13_0=nikon_d800e&attr13_1=nikon_d800&attr15_0=raw&attr15_1=raw&attr16_0=50&attr16_1=50&normalization=full&widget=13&x=-0.6062281934907472&y=0.3464424680377989

The most significant thing, if true, would be the ability of the sensor to register more photons, and the better tonality associated with that.

I believe what you're pointing out is moire.

This is aliasing:

I don't know Richard, Canon, Nikon has had some rather large, public fumbles in quality in the last few years.

rhlpetrus: Thanks, this is what one expects from DPR, an a analysis of the new features, well-done (and a much better approach than the one in the "first impressions review" published yesterday, with some out of place negative comments, implicit in the title "a bit better"). This is actually a very welcome update in many aspects, especially for those that did not go for the original versions.

I thought it sounded pretty snide.

Anyway, thanks for re-beautifying the front page.

Yep. Yesterday's was full of sarcastic snickers barely hidden behind the handkerchief of editorial apathy.
