On article Here at last: Nikon announces D500 (1175 comments in total)

I'm very curious to see how native ISO 51,200 looks like on APS-C.

Looking at this monster makes me appreciate the M series a Lot more.

Like 10 KG more.

Shangri La: Apologize in advance for the rant, but...

This new gallery format is stupid and poorly implemented beyond belief. You can't even view the image full screen (I can't think of any image viewing app that doesnt have full screen view). With these high-resolution samples, dragging the image in 100% in that tiny window is awfully painful. The old gallery is so much easier to use. Have they actually tried to use the new application before switching to it?

Thank you for the comment and I apologize again for the rant. I've seen others complaining about the new system as well. Another thing is that I usually use larger than 100% zoom view on my browser (Chrome/firefox) to enlarge the text for easier reading (this is especially helpful with today's high resolution/large-sized monitors). But with the new system, the higher the zoom percentage, the smaller the viewing window becomes. This, combined with inability to view in full screen, makes the viewing experience more frustrating.

Only wish it had image stabilization.

On article Sony brings uncompressed Raw to a7S II, a7R II and... (562 comments in total)

Please stop with the 'some people will always find something to complain about' nonsense.

So the 'whining' about Sony's RAW file is totally valid and helps Sony to improve as a camera manufacturer and benefits the users. Just like the 'whining' about Nikon D600 oil spot issue.

Next time issues like these happen, in-depth analysis is well justified instead of telling the 'whiners' to 'just shut up and deal with it'.

Well done DPR!

Tieu Ngao: I've been thinking of buying the Sigma Art 35mm f/1.4 ($900), but I'll wait for this Tamron and hope that its optical performance is 98% of the Sigma. It has VC, weather seal, and $300 less then the Sigma even though it's slightly slower. Another plus is that the Tamron AF is perhaps more reliable than the Sigma for Nikon cameras.

Does Tamron reverse-engineer Nikon's AF algorithm like Sigma does?

Shangri La: How do you apply same adjustments (WB/Lens correction/etc) to several images, like you can 'Sync' in LR?

I know you can save the adjustment as a preset and then apply to the images, but that way you have to go through each and every image manually. Unlike 'Sync' in LR, where you can one-click apply. Thanks.

Thank you. I will give it a try.

I don't understand the comments about DXO losing objectivity by testing their own product. It's just another product on the market, why can they not test it? Until DPReview/other party's test numbers prove otherwise, you just cannot say that.

Shangri La: Very intriguing product. But I see 2 major things:

- IOS only, no Android?
- SuperRAW mode only works with DXO RAW converters, but not other RAW converters?

Hope other manufacturers will follow suit and mature the concept. Price will go down too.

But that's the regular raw file, not the super raw which is extremely impressive if DXO numbers are to be trusted.

Andriod support I can actually see that happening.

Shangri La: The images look a bit soft to me..

Thanks for the comments, Rishi. Just for comparison I viewed the D810 samples on the same monitor/PC/browser and they're very sharp. Maybe more of a camera thing I guess, or the lens and aperture (I looked at mostly center of the images). Great images BTW.
