On Under the hood: A closer look at the Sony a7R II article (592 comments in total)

Would you say this can still be called the art of photography, or might the use of some of the features here more aptly be called something like, "advanced imaging device deployment"?

On Adobe announces final Camera Raw update for CS6 owners article (481 comments in total)
In reply to:

davids8560: What bugs me is I bought the full CS6 suite shortly before CC made its debut. If they warned me everything was about to change, I sure don't remember it. They just took my $2,100. And I won't forget that.

EssexAsh - If this is the last update, then at some point it will most assuredly stop doing what I want/need it to do! Or do you expect otherwise?

On Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 IV First Impressions Review preview (1550 comments in total)
In reply to:

Waterengineer: A $1,000US for a compact camera! That is crazy talk. We are always told the image processor is the most expensive part of a camera. The sensor in this camera is tiny. Soooooooooo, the camera should be inexpensive, right?

How much was a brand new Canon PowerShot G2 or Pro1? A Nikon CoolPix 8800? An Olympus C8080?

What I want to know is, can any DSLR take a shot like this?

On Nikon D750 service advisory warns of shutter issue article (341 comments in total)

How would you say the recent D750 service advisory stacks up against the recent K-3 service advisory? Which is better? :)

Paid $700 for the first one. Used it daily for a week or two. But never hardly touched it after that. Used to laugh about it. My older, worser slightly larger camera handled better and its longer reach was far more useful to me. Ended up parting with the little marvel for $225. What a deal that buyer got. GAS says buy the Mark 4.

But I dunno. I just don't think. Clearly. You?

On Readers' Showcase: Raymond Pang article (54 comments in total)

I like all the images. And the images make a convincing argument for Canon products. But, in much the same way, the last showcase made a convincing argument for Sony products. And the guy before that, his stuff made a convincing argument for Nikon products. So maybe the photographer is more important than the gear.

How does this stack up against the Stylus 1, RX10, and FZ1000? You can be frank.

I highly recommend the Nikon D7200.

I think they'd do better branding the camera a Leica. Looks tough as nails, too.

On New samples from the Sigma 24mm F1.4 DG HSM Art lens article (230 comments in total)
In reply to:

Jonathan Wilson: Looks great. I'm certainly looking for something around this focal length but sadly there are apparently no plans to make this in Pentax mount.

Here's a side question. I recently bought my first Sigma lens for Pentax, the 17-70 Contemporary. I noticed Lightroom did not recognize the lens. So I asked around, and this was when I heard first learned about Sigma's "reverse engineering" thievery issue. It kind of makes me wary of Sigma, but I have to say I'm really happy with the 17-70. So I would probably buy this lens. My question is, why doesn't Lightroom recognize the 17-70, but some websites I've uploaded K-3/Sigma 17-70 pictures to do recognize it and specify it in the EXIF data?

They should reconsider, given the FF announcement!

On Olympus OM-D E-M5 II First Impressions Review preview (1392 comments in total)

That is one slick video! The sound is good, too! The M1 however is overall a far more compelling proposition. Might as well go for that one, if you are spending this much money already.

I don't doubt that this camera takes a pretty good photo, but I really wonder nowadays about build quality and reliability when it comes to Sony products. Too many Sony products have given me grief after even sometimes less than a year of use, including my pricey NEX-7. And Sony's customer service is even more clunky than its online manuals and the menu systems of many of its cameras. Makes me apprehensive. And I think long-established camera makers still have the edge when it comes to IQ and image processing, for the most part. They know what to do with Sony's better sensors than Sony does, and I think most people know this. Panasonic has great hardware and iffy IQ, Sony has great sensors but iffy hardware. YMMV of course.
