On a photo in the Leica Q Real-world sample gallery sample gallery (1 comment in total)

Great to see such a good looking German Shorthaired Pointer star in a review.

On photo Boathouse Row in the Landscape Photo - Urban Challenge challenge (1 comment in total)

I actually really like the composition of this shot, but the processing of it was not to my taste with those nasty halos.

On article History Repeating: Olympus PEN-F Review (1095 comments in total)
In reply to:

Aroart: I realy wanted to love my em5m2 with 45mm 1.8, but I had a Fuji xe1 to compare it to and returned the Olympus within a week.. The Olympus did have a nice punchy contrast look, but the Fuji blew it away in low light and skin tones... Not hating on Olympus... I just think you get better results with a bigger sensor... I do think they have a great system and decent lenses for the price.....

How is that relevant to a PEN-F review, which has a different sensor?

Mike FL: This $499 Pana is more or less to compete with $299 Oly weather sealed 12-50mm.

The good thing about Olympus is that newer IBIS is better than OIS in this kind of zoom range.

It is your call/money.

The Pana is 10mm longer and has a faster aperture at the long end: f/5.6 vs 6.3. But that's not intended to take away from the valid points that daddyo and MikeFL have made. I suppose it's a matter of weighing up what's more important to you.

Jefftan: why not buy 14-140mm, similar weight and similar size, 10x zoom

2mm wider wide angle is handy. As is weather sealing. And you'd have to assume that a more limited zoom range, this 12-60mm will be optically superior to the 14-140mm.

NilsBV: Prices for those orphaned Sigma-mount lenses on eBay might suddenly go up, now that they are being given a new lease on life.

Oh well. Not that I really care, since I neither shoot E-mount nor have any SA-mount lenses.

Actually, scrap that. Sigma has just announced new SA-mount mirrorless cameras: http://photorumors.com/2016/02/23/new-sigma-sd-quattro-mirrorless-cameras-with-foveon-x3-sensor-and-sigma-sa-mount/

@MonoSynth, I have seen some high-quality SA-mount lenses on eBay, such as the 17-50mm f/2.8. Not many of course, but some of those quality lenses do exist, and to date have gone pretty cheap because nobody bought SA-mount cameras.

The specs of the 24-500 appear to be those of the 18-50.

ackebous: Very well done, love the motion in the center and no blur on the paint sticks

My guess is Photoshop, rather than physically spinning something. Still a cool look though.

In reply to:

Michael Leek: Why have so many photos that are clearly NOT lambs been allowed in this challenge? Surely this makes a mockery of the rules and the title!

Totally agree. One of the photos is even of a dog. How many of these stupid challenges did the host set up before they disappeared? And why are those unfinished challenges not automatically deleted once the host closes their account?

Too much repetition of the same challenge, over and over.

Do we really need the same challenge very week?

On challenge Design Elements - Color (5 comments in total)

Just a question for clarification: must the image show the use of colour in the design of the item being photographed, or of the image as a whole? For example the white lighthouse that has been submitted, that does not use colour in the item being photographed, but the image as a whole has strong blue and white design elements. This is relevant to landscape shots where the picture is designed to showcase the colours, but where the landscape itself does not feature a design as such.

Isn't this just an exact duplication of the challenge from a week earlier? A challenge that after 4 days has only received 9 entries?

On challenge Your City - Churches from below (2 comments in total)

Does it have to be an exterior shot or are interiors acceptable too?

On photo Corona Arch and Shadow from the Air in the Landscape By Drone challenge (1 comment in total)

It's hard to tell the scale of this picture. The arch could be 2 metres high and shot hand-held or it could be 20 metres high and shot by a drone.

On photo Millennium Wharf in the Landscape By Drone challenge (2 comments in total)

Is this actually a landscape shot? More a cityscape. Still nice though.

That's a pretty stunning picture. Makes we want to go out and photograph rally cars.
