On Canon EF 50mm F1.8 STM real-world samples gallery article (140 comments in total)
In reply to:

nananananana: I like people comparing a $125 lens to $1000 sigma lenses and saying it's not as good. You want a cookie for that conclusion or something?

For the money, it's probably one of the best lenses you can buy. The only thing I find is that the bokeh looks smeary instead of clean, but that's more a personal opinion. This lens will sell like (pan) hotcakes.

Yes, for $125 it's NICE 50mm. If you can't use it then it's not about the lens ;)

@princecody you can continue showing off your lack of knowledge on and on. It's the beauty of the internet.

kfahlman: I've had the M246 for a couple of weeks now, since its release.
It's an amazing camera, I have an M240 as well, so the learning curve was non existent.
The tonal range of the files are excellent, far better than conversion of the M files through Silver Efex.

This camera is worth every penny.
If you can't afford one, to bad. But don't knock it until you've tried it.

@badi :P

small m4/3 sensor against FF without CFA? for B&W? Clearly you have no idea what you're talking about! ROFLMAO

This is DPR, what do you expect? people will bash it just because they can't afford it or at least have no idea about the IQ offered. Later on, expect some smaller sensor users that will preach on how their mirrorless being superior blah blah blah ;)

In reply to:

ekaton: Why f1.4 for a wide lens? For light gathering ability? But sensor sensitivities take sufficiently care of this these days, at much lower cost. For dof control? This is limited with a wide lens anyway - get a longer lens for real dof control. Just because they can? So it seems.

Sounds like what you need is an 18-200 lens and call it a day.

Just for fun I replaced the EOS 700D with 7D mk II, seems like the T6i/s have weaker AA filter which is a good thing at 24MP. The studio comparison looks much more promising than the earlier real world samples.

Everlast66: Sony A6000 looks way better than any of these two and is at the end of its life-cycle waiting to be replaced.

Justifying your purchase of A6000? LOL

vesa1tahti: D7200 is the clear winner. Cheers.

D7200 is very slightly smoother at high iso, but nothing significant. I wouldn't call it a clear winner.

noflashplease: I can't imagine anyone buying a new Canon Rebel on the basis of these photos. For some reason, I'm seeing soft images, so I don't know if it's a lens issue, or a focus issue? The dynamic range and noise are also horrific for 2015.

Don't say that - I just said the same thing and I got lectured by the fanboys. Somehow we could not expect better IQ from a $849 DSLR? That's not right ;) As a matter of fact, I've seen much better outputs from other 24MP APS cameras. But hey, if Canon makes it then it has to be it!

I've been waiting for reviews and samples from the T6s but the images aren't really sharp here. The building photo taken with the 16-35 IS is unbelievably soft. Strong AA filter? bad lens sample?

I could be wrong, but I think X-T10 produces better JPG than X-T1.

Shiranai: Still missing the WOW-factor from this camera.
But here we go again in the megapixel race rather than developing towards lower noise.
Apparently some people need it to print silver screen-sized posters...
I don't.

You'll get the wow you deserve with a Leica M, esp the Limited Editions (Hermes or Lenny Kravitz' esp) like "Wow you're rich!" - or with a Hassy Lunar for "Wow you're an idiot!".

In reply to:

LukeDuciel: is it me or D810 does look very similar in terms of detail resolution vs. 5DsR?

I am staring at the green faux feature stuff at ISO100.

if this is true, then ... thinking about the price D810 would be at when 5DsR actually hits the stores.

hmmm...

Based on the conversation here, the Canon 85/1.8 is inferior to the Nikkor AFS 85/1.4G yet the comparison shows that 5DSR renders more fine details than the Nikon. Check out fine patterns on the bill/note. I'll take the EF 85/1.8 at less than $400, thanks. That's enough fine details for me.

I don't.

People who need this camera don't need the 'wow' factors. It's the photographer that gives the wow factors, not the camera.

RichRMA: You want realism, the Olympus HR mode is still the best. See the cheek on the women on the right in the image? See the lines on her face in the Canon and Nikon images? Guess what? The lines don't exist! It's a gross artifact in the Canon AND the Nikon. The Olympus offers the only true rendition of the image. If your subject is static, the Olympus is the best solution. Also, the idea that the Canon has an edge because it can shoot moving subjects, hand-held? Well, you'll likely never see 50mp resolution doing that, if you are lucky, you might preserve 30mp, because of the ridiculous shutter speeds you need to preserve details at 50mp.

Some of the photographers I know do shoot the 645Z handheld in good light.

I'm always confused why Oly fanboys must always do some marketing in every thread about other brands. Chill out, just because Canon can take 50MP in a single shot doesn't mean Oly will go bankrupt soon.
