A big tip of the hat to the team at LensRentals for documenting and sharing that teardown.

And an even bigger tip of the hat to the Canon engineers for over engineering their lens, and in doing so raising the bar for other manufacturers to follow. Well done Canon!

Jorginho, post processing typically comes down to a matter of degree.

Personally, I felt the processing was beautifully done with this image, and helped emphasize the dramatic feeling of the scene. But that is me.

I think it's rather exciting and look forward to seeing what they've come up with.

I'll leave it to others to examine the quality of the lens, but I certainly enjoyed the very lovely set of images. Well done.

RollPoll took the words right out of my mouth, a frank, refreshing, no B.S. interview. Thanks Victoria, and a big well done to the folks who shot it.

An extremely worthwhile watch for any photographer who's trying to find their "voice".

Derek Dean: I understand and appreciate what Apple is trying to do, making it easy to work with our photographs on any device we happen to be using, but I feel their implementation of that concept is seriously flawed.

My experience with Photos has been so bad that I've had to revert back to OSX 10.10.2 to even be able to download RAW files from my camera...... and this was after spending several hours with two different Application Specialists who never could solve my issues.

I will say this though, after 12 years of using Apple computers, this is the first real glitch I've encountered, so I'm willing to give them some time to work out the bugs and hopefully give us a quick update that addresses many, if not all, of these valid concerns.

noirdesir, thanks for the suggestion, I just posted over in the DPR Mac forum.
