If I were him, I'd change the statement from "probably" to "ABSOLUTELY". Alas I'm not him.

A photograph of Vlad Putin surfing would have brought more life to these pictures.

alextardif: Meh... all this adapted nonsense is just that for now... nonsense.

Alextardif, giving yourself the sole "like" I see.

Great! They now need to unlock the $400 gouging price tag and possibly undercut Sigma. Otherwise, the Sigma (with it's superior build) still gets my cold hard cash.

Updated review from DPR means Sigma is still superior.

dansclic: Who cares about this ? People paying more than 6000 dollars are not buying sigma lenses I guess ? I wouldn't anyway. Professional photographers do not want to create problems for themselves, So better stick to genuine lenses that will never cause any problem.

When it comes to Sigma Art lenses, Canon's become the Perennially underachieving, overpriced underdog. I love my Sigma art lens. beautiful glass, sharp images, amazing build and fantastic to just hold in hand. Absolutely a precision instrument.

On article Back to the action: Nikon D500 Review (1086 comments in total)

Beat that Canon :(
I'm really getting embarrassed for myself and for Canon. What a shame. Canon was a great innovator, but it seems they have tied their own feet and gagged their own mouths.

Shocking to hear about Michael!!! RIP
YOU Can't take your camera gear with you guys. enjoy your photography but spend your cherished time with your family and friends rather than petty fighting on this forum.

On article Primer: What is VR, and why should photographers care? (142 comments in total)

What is VR you ask? Same as IS to Canonians.
Please don't ask what is DR (Dynamic Range)? Same as VW (VaporWare) to us Canonians. :P

Chris Yates: Honestly, comparing the images with the mouse rollover, I believe that's a lot of time and work invested for little if any improvement. I personally prefer the image as-is. My time's too precious to be doing this very often. Although I appreciate the time the authour has taken in explaining the technique and all his efforts and a free educational lesson, I must conclude with saying "thanks, but no thanks."

m4eny, I agree wholeheartedly. I enjoy photography and quick tinkering in PS to fix colours and exposure, and that's all. I'm done.

Jimmy jang Boo: The third image is a standout, but I find the lens flare distracting.

people look for perfection in a lens, not realizing that imperfections in the equipment make the image perfect.

On article Canon announces budget-friendly EOS Rebel T6 (1300D) (895 comments in total)

I'd like to say it's great price for a backup or disposable body, but then again I can get a 5D mk I or Canon t4i for the same price on ebay/Craigslist and be happier.

BarnET: "The Rebel T6 will ship in the US next month at a price of $549"

I bet you my car that it will be half of that before the end of this year.

Or a quarter on craigslist.

Yawn. Wake me up when a proper mirrorless or innovative effort from Canon is here.

reptile9985: Is there any chance that Sony will stop this adapter from work in future firmware updates? I'm afraid of...

I doubt it as they would be hurting future camera body sales. With lawyers, legally, they could. However, if they just block it using code, future firmware updates from Sigma USB dock could bypass these roadblocks.

With fantastic glass, cross platform compatibility and (relatively) modest pricing, Sigma's goal is to become a powerhouse and a winner. Bravo.

Combatmedic870: The original 100-400 wasn't a classic. It was old. There is a difference. The 85 1.2 is a classic.

Thank you. The 100-400 is far from classic.

Nindy: Why does DP dance around questions? I would love to see Canon pushed a little harder with questions around why 4K hasn't been implemented in the enthusiast market, we all know answer. Letting Canon give you a BS answer maybe be acceptable to DP but we the readers want DP to ask and push manufacturers and be the voice of the people

Precisely why the Koreans have overtaken the Japanese
