This photo deserves higher placement. Simple and lovely.

A very fine photo. HDR? LOL. Folks who say this is HDR really have no idea what they're talking about.

Gorgeous! Well done.

It's funny that customers need to fork out extra cash for manufacturers' mistakes.

On Battle of the titans: Top ball heads tested article (268 comments in total)

In the page dedicated to Arca-Swiss Monoball Z1, a little China company known as Kangrinpoche was mentioned. It seems like the latter produced a product very similar to the Z1 years BEFORE the Z1 entered the market. How ironic...

Anyway, I own the Kangrinpoche NB3-B (a small lightweight 36 mm ballhead that supports a maximum weight of 15 kg) and have been using it for more than 7 years now. Still rocking on... ;)

I've seen similar photos of zebras, but they never fail to impress me.

photo nuts: Panasonic 14-42 kit lens weighs 95 g and Canon 18-55 IS kit already weighs ~ 200 g, so not much weight savings here. As for collapsible design, I was expecting to see something more pancake-like such as the Panasonic 14-42 lens. Not happening either. Sigh.

@BarnET: New Nikon kit lens weighs 195 g.

The colors, lighting and thick clouds make this an extraordinary capture. Love it!

580g? The more useful Tokina 11-16 f/2.8 only weighs 560 g.

No thanks

kimchiflower: imagine if Sigma released a m43 version. The APS-C one is uncomfortably large and heavy. The same size could be made in f/1.6 or f/1.5 for m43

Olympus used to offer a 4_3rd 14-35 f/2 lens that weighs 900g!

If they make one for mirrorless, it'll be lighter and smaller. And if Sony or Canon releases an APS-C equivalent for mirrorless, it'll also be smaller and lighter. :)

"However, while I can’t imagine buying the Sigma 18-35mm F1.8 DC HSM (mainly because I can’t imagine owning a DSLR again)..."

This explains why DPReview is pushing mirrorless cameras so hard. It's not just Richard Butler, but almost everyone in and everything published by DPReview seem to be strongly biased towards mirrorless offerings. Nothing wrong with that, just saying. ;)

On Canon announces EOS M2 in Japan article (613 comments in total)

Obviously targetted at Asian and Japanese market. In Europe and N. America where sales of DSLR outstrip that of mirrorless cameras by 9.5:1 and 8.5:1 respectively, there's no point in having a M2.

Not for Europeans and N. Americans anyway.

In reply to:

HowaboutRAW: Please explain in detail, what’s pointless about a full framed DSLR that’s quiet and very very good in lowlight, better than anything except the Nikon D4 and possibly the Canon 1D X?

The DF sure appears to be a good replacement for the much liked (still expensive) D700.

So no the DF is not some under-performing entry into a already very crowded market–completely unlike this Canon EOS M system then.

What's pointless about the Df? Price, size and weight. Enough said.
