On Panasonic DMC-CM1 to go on sale in UK article (144 comments in total)

So much better if it did not have any cel radios and you could just link it to your own phone.

tipple: Re: personal attacks on Richard. I f you cannot stick to photography comments then why waste your time. Did someone tick you off or are you just having a bad day or life in general?

I think i found the problem richard. DPreview does not review terrible cameras. Maybe now and then, take the time to review one and give it the marks it deserves.

AbrasiveReducer: Not sure I see the need if the filters are in brass mounts. Aluminum does jam but that's because it's not brass. Still, this seems like a good idea, and if it catches on all filters will soon have knurled rings.

You could just buy a filter wrench.

They failed to show what is unique about these. The glass seems to be outsourced and not exclusive to them. The design, other then being thin, does not look much different than others on the market. As far as I can see, its pure marketing BS.

On Price released for Brikk's 24k gold Nikon Df article (388 comments in total)

Reminds me of the "24k gold-trimmed Camry spotted in Dubai". Yes, a normal camry with 24k gold trim for $130K.

Link for those who don't believe me.

I would like an all brass version. Also, I thought sony changed the mount on the A7s to all stainless. Is it a 2 part also?

Must have same binding/shadow noise as previous sensors since author avoided pushing shadows in all the images. I would like to see some shadows pushed in low ISO (1oo or 200)

On Canon EOS 7D Mark II First Impressions Review preview (2589 comments in total)

This cameras has something called a weak link. It would be kick ass if it only had a 2011 class sensor on it (2014 would be nice but I know not to expect much). Samsung seems to have a BSI APC in the new NX1. Why cant canon give in and just outsource that sensor. Even panasonic is outsourcing sensors. (sony 1"). On the plus side, there are no cameras that really compete with the 7D at the moment. A77 does not have much of a lens selection and mirrorless is just getting into the pro sports category. Canon will sell lots of these but its hard to ignore mirrorless cameras like the EM-1 that shoots at 10fps and samsung at 14fps with full focus.

Mssimo: Here are the MTF charts on it. http://www.sigmaphoto.com/product/150-600mm-f5-63-dg-os-hsm-s

Looking at MTF charts, the lens seems to be "Tuned" for performance at the long end. This is good news. The tamron seems to give up quality right around 475-500mm

It looks like the nikon with huge front element, This should yield a nice side of flare that we all love.

Jogger: IT would be neat if Zeiss made an APO version of the OTUS 85/1.4 .. of course it would cost $8000.

It is APO as far as I remember.

On Zeiss introduces 'no distortion' Otus 1.4/85mm article (338 comments in total)

On the topic of manual focusing. It is a different world focusing a lens such as the Nikon 50mm f1.2 compared to a well corrected lens. Even if you manage to focus the Nikon 50mm f1.2 (focus is done wide open) the focus will shift at f5.6. It will drive you nuts. When you use a well corrected lens such as the otus, you will see a sharp line from focus to out of focus. It is a different world. Also note, even after getting the Nikon D810 with is much improved live view, it is still very difficult to focus lenses that are not well corrected wide open. The sigma 50mm art on the other hand, is a beauty.

pictureAngst: Wow, just think how sharp all my cat pictures could be with this lens!

...although without autofocus, they would have to be sleeping cat pictures.

a cat is not a bad subject to test out the APO claim.

Joe Ogiba: The Samyang 85mm F1.4 costs less than the NJ 7% sales tax on this lens .

Im sure for the cost of a nice set of 86mm filters you could by the rest of the samyang lineup.
