On Homemade rig captures extreme macro shots of snowflakes article (186 comments in total)

Lovely images. I wonder if this set-up offers higher magnification than the Canon MPE 65 lens

There seems to be a massive push by DPReview to promote mirrorless cameras. Just saying. :)

Nice photo. :)

Wow, the Nikkor 58 f/1.4 lens only somewhat catches up with Zeiss 55 f/1.4 lens at f/11 when diffraction starts to creep in. Even the antiquated Canon 50 f/1.4 performs better than the Nikkor 58 f/1.4 lens which is touted as "a premium standard lens for Nikon's full frame SLRs... designed to give the best possible imaging performance even when shot at maximum aperture." The hefty price tag accompanying the Nikkor 58 f/1.4 only adds further insult to injury.

Der Steppenwolf: Great quality. I can see Nikon and Canon sh****** their pants now. Thank you Sony for giving us an alternative.

OVF vs EVF issue is really not overrated. I used the EM5 with EVF for a year and concluded that I hated the EVF even though the camera was fully capable of producing great images. EVF will never have the same dynamic range, brightness and colors as OVF.

On Sony Alpha A7 / A7R preview (2372 comments in total)

Interesting that the A7R contrast based AF can focus faster and more accurately than the A7 hybrid AF.

Allen Yang: These two cameras would be attractive after Sony SIGNIFICANTLY expands its lens group.

Hopefully, Sony does not change their mind and shut down the money-haemorrhaging Imaging group before that. :D

On Roger Cicala gives Nikon D610 a clean bill of health article (91 comments in total)
In reply to:

AlpCns2: Good to know that Nikon has apparently improved quality control on those shutter mechanisms, despite the fact that the entire D600 "issue" has been completely blown out of proportion. As has been proven by several renowned and respected professional photographers / camera reviewers - such as Thom Hogan.

Having said that, Nikon should have handled the relatively few people that had indeed genuine issues better and more professionally. This has dented their reputation and as a consequence, customer confidence.

Oh and BTW, I have two D600's - and never had any issues with them.

Blown out of proportion? You need to follow Thom Hogan's site more closely:

http://www.dslrbodies.com/newsviews/risk-and-reward--more-d600.html

http://www.dslrbodies.com/newsviews/what-should-d600-owners-do.html

"Evidence shows that the debris/splatter problem is related to usage. Shoot 500 images and you might not see it. Shoot 2000 images and you might begin to see it. Shoot 4000 images and if the problem is there you'll definitely see it. So first things first: how many images have you shot with your D600? If the number is less than 5000, I'd suggest that you need to get there first before declaring your camera free of problems."

CeleryBeats: It all boils down to the same question. Why would i buy this???

BECAUSE IT'S A NIKON! :D

Yup. We'll see how big this group of stalwart fans is. :)

Too large, too heavy, too expensive. No video.

Not competitive to Sony A7/A7R. Not even close.

On Canon EOS 70D Review preview (638 comments in total)
In reply to:

photosen: I've seldom agreed so much with DPreview... "The cutting-edge stalwart" just about sums it up... "a sensible, indeed desirable upgrade to the EOS 60D".

I was expecting a really boring 70D and was happily surprised; when I have the money it's going very difficult to say no to it, even though I follow what other brands are doing, and in spite of the full frame siren calls... it just does everything I need it to do, and opens a couple of interesting avenues with wifi and that new autofocus...

The 60D was one of my all time favorite cameras.

In reply to:

RStyga: I can't see how this sensor is competitive in the APS-C arena today, especially at high-ISO. K-500 provides significantly better high-ISO IQ. 70D's 'new' sensor is as disappointing as 50D's was, when released, back then. The Gold Award is an overall assessment of how much DPR 'likes' this camera... I think I don't 'like' it as much...

I picked Sony Nex-6 and Nikon D7100. All look comparable to me at ISO 6400 RAW. Only the K-500 has strikingly low noise, at the expense of image details.

K-500 with its in-built non-removable high ISO NR for RAW files? No thanks.

On Pole Star Beacon in the At least three challenge (7 comments in total)

I love this amazing shot. It'll be great if the star trails can be sharp too, but that's asking too much... and probably requires extensive photoshop work. Guess this one works best.

Did I say I love it? I really do.
