They could have made the number "1" a bit bigger on the front of the camera...or maybe not.

"Similar to the Award-Winning Olympus OM-D E-M5"
Did not take long for Olympus to use the DPreview endorsement lol
Good on them.

Panasonic has had a 3D lens for a while now, and no one ever talks about it. Shows the demand for such lens.

R Valentino: Just can't see why anyone would buy into the Nikon 1 system over 4/3s. The one ISO 800 image I looked at was awful. Didn't care to look at any more after that.

Re: Shunda77

slncezgsi: DPreview - I seem to miss a mention of K. B. Canham Cameras here. This should not be the case as the photo of the 4x5 field camera comes directly from their webpage - http://www.canhamcameras.com/4x5and5x7.htm .

This is a potential copyright violation - please make sure that this is not the case!

Using google image search. I got countless hits for websites using the same picture.

In reply to:

Roland Karlsson: @David - perfectly correct - the back, i.e. the camera has to move. There should be a mount on the front of the shift lens.

Moreover - whats wrong with just turn the camera around the nodal point and just stitch? Why this unnecessary shift lens?

The nodal point is the iris right? Not the sensor.

Mssimo: Why not use a high quality UWA lens and focus stack (if needed)?

The largest I have gone is 20x30. I have issues finding photo labs that takes files over 200MB. What DPI do you print at for larger prints?

In reply to:

Airless: I don't get how the short flash duration makes sharp pictures. Doesn't the shutter stay open even after the flash ends?I have heard of 1/8000 shutter speed but not 1/16000.

You need a dark or somewhat dark room. The shutter can stay open for 10 secs if there is little to no light. The flash will provide proper exposure. Here is some info from ken rockwells site for the sb-910
Flash duration

1/880 sec. at full output.

1/1,100 sec. at M 1/2 output.

1/2,550 sec. at M 1/4 output.

1/5,000 sec. at M 1/8 output.

1/10,000 sec. at M 1/16 output.

1/20,000 sec. at M 1/32 output.

1/35,700 sec. at M 1/64 output.

1/38,500 sec. at M 1/128 output.

If you look on his flickr, you will find heavy photoshop. Very well done BTW. I like his images, and I can tell its not as simple as taking the image and making a few adjustments in lightroom.

Lan: Questions to DxO:

1) How do you source your lenses for testing?

2) On average, how many copies of a lens do you test?

This is why I love lens rentals blogs. They also post result with large batch of lenses.

Direct link | Posted on Dec 17, 2012 at 21:58 UTC

They only tested one lens with the D800 and D800E.

Tamron AF 28-300mm F/3.5-6.3 XR Di VC LD Aspherical [IF] Macro Nikon

Results for sharpness:

D800 8
D800E 11
D600 9
D3x 8
D4 7
D700 6

D3200 5
D90 4
D40x 4

Im not sure what to make out of this data. Its a superzoom lens..but that is all the data we have for these high MP cameras.

Note: added a few more cameras

In reply to:

Lu Heng: Is it just me, or your test pictures are getting better? I enjoyed some of them as photographs.
And I think the lens are not bad at all.

Rogers from lens rentals tested a single sample of the lens. He said that single sample was overall better than the best sample of the Canon L and Nikon G f1.4. He did say that the bokeh was not as nice (a tradeoff for better sharpness is his guess)

JEROME NOLAS: I am surprised by the sharpness at the wide end...

Yeah..might as well tape the lens so it does not move out of he 18mm range.

Direct link | Posted on Dec 3, 2012 at 20:33 UTC

This also happens with the D800. Went on a long roadtrip and when I got back, many photos had oil spots. Here is what I used to clean it:

Lenspen LENSK1A Sensorklear Ii with Articulated Tip
Visible Dust BriteVue Sensor Loupe 7X
D-SLR Sensor Cleaning Brush for Full Frame Sensors
DustAid Platinum DSLR Sensor Cleaner
and 1+ hour of my time.

I am 100% sure it was not dust, you could spread it around and it was very hard to clean.

In reply to:

Kodachrome200: do people who buy superzooms even care? why not review lenses that there is some question of the optical quality. A sigma superzoom is bound to be optically weak. maybe it will be good compared to its class. but again i ask when people buy these lenses we know are weak do they really care.

If I super zoom is as good as a kit 18-55mm and 55-250mm. I could see many people buying one and selling the two kit lenses.

Hey Barney,
You asked what we would like to see. Here is my request:

I would like to see a review on D800E vs Different Lens. Can any current zoom out resolve the sensor? How about primes? I would also like to see how Zeiss ZF.2 lenses perform. I heard they will come out with lenses for high MP sensors, this makes me question how good current lenses are as far as resolution.
