On Rare Canon EF 1200mm f/5.6L USM goes on sale in UK article (218 comments in total)
In reply to:

Angus Rose: The angle of view is so narrow, the aperture is so high and the glass is so heavy, that it becomes unsuitable for almost everything.
I'd rather save a lot of money by using my brain to move my legs, to get closer to the subject.

Mike, you can use a much cheaper telescope, the moon hardly requires AF.

foto guy: Who cares? These and other cameras can shoot a decent pic at quite high ISOs. Do you think you folks could focus on something important for a change? Perhaps photography, for instance.

Simon, this is because there was a delay with the K3 review....... You know it makes sense. !!!! :P

Bill T.: For only three times the price you could duct tape a $600 Samsung phone onto a 50mp CMOS Hassy. Think about it.

Or get a Pentax 645z for less than this..... And an iPhone/Samsung whatever..... And a second hand lens.

Yanko Kitanov: Poor bokeh, horrid out-of-focus areas and poor focus-transition rendering...this is welcome though as it makes the original (and better in these areas) Sigma 50 1.4 cheaper! :-)

Zeisschen.
I don't think you get it. Laugh all you want, but the out of focus at these apertures is always more important than the infocus. The fact that the lens has great sharpness and contrast seems to just make for a boring image. You also misunderstand the term character . As you know we all have character, good or bad, just like we all like the antihero vs the goodytwoshoes trying to do what's right. Although we respect him.

It is a bit of a charachter....less lens IMO

In reply to:

Richard Murdey: "an order of magnitude more"

No, less than four times more.

That's not how an order of magnitude works.
One order of magnitude over the 8500 price would be 85000!!! two orders would be 850000. and so on and so forth.

TFD: 37,000 vs 8500 is not a order of magnitude

I was just thinking the same thing.

ArcaSwiss: It would cost me $16,000 to upgrade my IQ140 back to IQ250. Same sensor. Need I say more ?

there is also the 67 catalogue of LS lenses, a 90mm and a 165mm ...... both should work with the adaptor.

In reply to:

AndreyT: BTW, if you flip through the pictures in reverse order, it will look like F4 boxing. I did it a few times already - a very relaxing experience. I wish the also had "sending that thing back where it came from" segment.

Did not work for me...... the foam chips on the box before being in the package (pic5) ruined the experience.....
Sad face

In reply to:

steelski: This is literally a waste of your front page. You can spend your time how you like. But I think this would have been beneath you a year or two ago.
Sorry to be unkind.

Don't be such a chubby checker.
And now for the serious bit. The more this site becomes more "general" the less it appeals to me. And a whole bunch of other people. I predict the site will loose a large portion of its loyal followers in time. And I might be one of them...... Simply because I would not care for the site any longer..... Not in some rebellious way.

On Two photographers re-imagine city potholes article (147 comments in total)
In reply to:

jadot: This is awful, conceptually, in execution, and technically. The models are terribly bad actors, it seems, and the results are ugly. I read a comment which said: "looks like they had a lot of fun" or some such thing.
So what? How the krap does that make this abysmal "project" have any value at all in the world. All it tells us is that any idiot can take a picture with a camera and call it art or whatever they like because it's in focus. And that's only because it exists.
It's not big and it's not clever, and it's not funny either.

Well well well. Your arrogance is really impressing all the people here. You might be a decent photographer. But you are something really really special besides that. I can not put my finger on it.
I am thinking it...... Can u not tell .... What it is

EDIT!!! Hey I just took a look at your blog and "work" and it is Cliché for a Modern Wedding photographer..... You are really really good. At being a great business orientated wedding photographer. Congrats.
But this is all my opinion....... Obviously I do not value it as I would something slightly original.

Now now. I was thinking I could avoid publishing my life story, but it seems unavoidable. The reason my dpr portfolio is thin is because I do not fill it. And I had a link to my site until two days ago. It used to be exper-iment.com . But I have stopped my professional work because I had to build a house (literally). That took so long that it made my work redundant! My field of work was also wedding photography. But here in Bulgaria (I am an ex pat....ish) it does not pay enough anyway.....whatever your level. I am still sought after. I still shoot private studio sessions, but also can not be bothered to publish them..... One day you may see my work, but family life here really pulls the professional one down.
Anyway my point is that I am a wedding photographer like you......just not at the moment. And I am not a massive fan of the pictures in the article. But they have some originality at least......which is difficult to find in wedding photo field.
I must say that the arrogant way in which you try to defend who you are is really unflattering.

I do hope you realise I am joking. As there are a lot of british staff on dpreview, they should be able to take a joke. They already said it will come out shorty anyway.
