Horshack: Hotrods, women, and airplanes - that about sums up the target buyer in the prosumer camera market :)

Pretty much summarizes my reason for being.

Just add photography.

Just a Photographer: These portraits look very soft to me. Might be my retina display, but if not then either the lens was soft, or the 5Ds is not up to its task.

With strobes, so don't panic about the shutter speed.

In reply to:

lacikuss: Are these pictures really making a case for a potential buyer of this camera?

I think no.

Which shot are you taling about? From just a quick browse, those samples are horrible (and I don't mean the camera).

But seriously, could you post the link?

wassim al malak: how can you shoot 85m at 1/50 ? is there any spedlights somewhere ?
and why that "not-rounded" light balls ?

There are reflections of the flash in her eyes and this bokeh is a characteristic of that lens, but not uncommon.

I have no interest in this type of photography myself, but I appreciate the beauty of them, not to mention the extreme technical challenges involved.

Great article!

Great interview supported by even greater images!

Thanks for posting it.

Fuji just keeps destroying everyone with their attention to firmware updates.

I've called them 'slow' in the past. Is it time to reconsider?

Some truly excellent images here. I enjoyed voting!

Wow. Camera brand doesn't matter, but this is some of the most disappointing drivel I've seen in a competition yet.

Get closer and think about composition.

My stepson was watching over my shoulder as I was rating this and all he kept saying is "one ... one" (star).

Congratulations to the 3 or 4 that I rated above a 5. :(

Tower: Why people to blame the software. LR never as good as native camera software. I means LR could not be better then the Phocus or DPP.

I'm not sure what you mean.

Manufacturer software. You asked me if I had tried them. I said yes.

I use Lightroom 99.9%, Photoshop 0.1.

Yep, both the new and old Nikon software, and a many more.

People use a camera manufacturer's software?

The horror. The horror.

Tharaphita: does this apply to standalone too?

I believe the fourth paragraph says no, CC only.

InTheMist: I'm looking forward to Barney's extensive review of the Leica Q. After an initial rush of enthusiasm, I'm slowly, haltingly, and with regret, retracting my hand away from my wallet.

Yeah, I'm just not big on the 28mm thing.

In reply to:

lxcellent: Can someone please explain the 28mm lens choice by Leica? It seems so counter to what they have done in the past. I would expect a 35mm or even a 50mm. In fact, isn't easier to design an optically perfect 50mm than 28mm? It seems like Leica could have gone with a 50mm and one could add a screw on adapter to make it wider or more tele. (Which I realize is sacrilege for Leica.) What am I missing folks? The 28mm seems so unusual.

My understanding is this: Leica's long-standing principle is that you can see subjects walking into the frame through a rangefinder viewfinder, the crop lines representing what would be captured by the film or sensor. They tried to keep this principle when using the EVF in 35mm or 50mm 'crop' modes. Interestingly, the crop mode does not throw away any data, you can uncrop it or adjust it after importing into Lightroom.

That said, I'm still skeptical of 28mm, to be honest.
