wootpile: It's a great piece of software - but I refuse to pay a cloud fee for it. over a 10 year - span - PS CC will cost you $1200. hope they go broke.

Over a 10yr span, that's nothing. PS was $300-600+ before. If they upgraded it every year or every couple/few years, you'd see a savings with sticking with CC. Even with the upgrade price which is cheaper, or skipping a version. CC overall is much better.

Lassoni: Damn! Tokina lenses always look good. I hope this 24-70 will be better than Tamron, even if it doesn't have IS. Would be nice to see this company up in the game!

And the price of 11-20 is practically steal when you compare it to the other brands offering. Sure it's not cheap, but it ain't bad.

I miss my 11-16 :(

they don't only look good, they feel great. work well too.

JT986: Between the new and older 300mmf4.
I love that the new one is much lighter and smaller.
the big question for me is.
Will their BOKEH be any different?
New one better BOKEH?

You're thinking of mirror-based lenses... this is definitely not that.

Damien Demolder: Drobo isn't getting great comments here! Has anyone else had issues with their products? Who makes the best storage systems?

Synology makes the best.

blue hour: - no touchscreen
- no Wifi
- can't record 4K video
- more expensive than the competition (Pentax K3, Sony A77 Mk II,Olympus E-M1)
- all of those competitors feature stabilization built into the body, that works with every lens you attach
- rumours of a hybrid viewfinder (like the Fuji X100 T) didn't make it to the production line- Canon should reinforce their innovation management

in body stabilization looks like CRAP in videos compared in in-lens stabilization. Why need a glitchy touch screen? Buttons work 100% of the time and are easy to use, and can be used with gloves on etc. Who needs 4K? What is going to display all that resolution? Just because a camera with a smaller sensor can do it, doesn't mean it will look any good or better (it will NOT). Wifi would be nice, but at least there are grips etc that allow that functionality.

In reply to:

kadardr: They have to make damned sure that this is at least as good as the Sigma 1.4/50 Art lens. Otherwise there is no point.

Can't the bokeh on the new Sigma be quite busy in ways? There are better 50/1.4s & similar.

In reply to:

Edac2: Why can't a 60 x 60mm sensor be made? 43.8 x 32.9mm is nowhere near "full frame" and there will be a significant loss of focal length using this back (43.8 is 73% of 60, and 32.9 is only 55% of 60). Perhaps having the sensor plane further from the lens than a film plane compensates for this; then you would just lose some of the square image at the top and bottom of the frame. There would be other compromises, though, such as not being able to use the camera's viewfinder. Would one keep the mirror flipped up to use this back?

the perspective stays the same, what you see is cropped though (angle of view is less)

rtogog: Surprise me, the role of human being are very dominant on the production line of the process of making of lens.

we wonder why it's expensive. Just a bunch of ground elements slapped together... much more then just that!

In reply to:

ryanshoots: Still offering two basic colors of skin-tone, peach or grayish yellow. This is a wonderful camera in may ways. Nikon colors not being one of them. Do they offer one with a b&w sensor?

What RAW and changing the WB is for.

io_bg: No filter thread and 6 diaphragm blades? Too bad...

If you're shooting wide open (which you will have to to get any kind of bokeh out of this lense) you're not going to see the aperture blades... the bokeh will be round. How smooth it will be is another matter.

In reply to:

Greynerd: Living in gale battered England it is always intriguing how in the US you can build houses on the beach. You must have very good weather most of the time punctuated occasionally by storms of the like we never see.

The homes aren't "built on the beach" they're either literally moved out to sea, or the shoreline moved closer to the homes thanks to the storm.

hence why they're trying to copy it and stick it in front of a camera sensor.

Pati Feroolz: dpreview should really do something about this 520 pixel wide pictures. i use the site at 150% magnification put pictures look terrible.

No crap sherlock. You're magnifying those same small pictures by 150%... not loading the full high res pic and making it smaller. Magnifying the page will make those pictures look even more terrible compared to normal.
