Muus: Dear DPR staff, this may be nitpicking, but: 1/4000th sec is not maximum but minimum shutter speed. Please.

That's not even completely right. The literal speed of each curtain is constant unless I completely misunderstand how shutter timing works. Which is possible.

In the end, though, not a soul was confused by the terminology used. Find something better to do, Muus

Mike in Taiwan: I want to hold one in my hands and try it before making a judgement, but I hope that the weathered Nikon nameplate is not present in production models...that's lame.

I'm pretty sure he's taking the reflections in the photo at the top of the page - in the inlaid Nikon logo - as "artificial wear" to make it look used.

I enjoy the Nikon 610 being on this list.

If only every manufacturer could massively **** up a product and rerelease it under a new number we could literally have hundreds of new models each year! :)

In reply to:

Raist3d: How about voting for more than one? Most of these lenses are really good. I would vote for the Pentax limited zoom. The Olympus 12-40 m4/3, and the fuji xf 23 only because I know what to expect better from ten than the other but the others look good too.

Ha. Create multiple accounts, vote all you like!

samhain: I'm picking based on which one I'd choose if given the option- and I'd choose the Nikon 58/1.4 over all the others.

I'm suprised it scored so low Tbh- for me, there's no question as to which of those lenses is the most desirable.

No, there is no question which is most desirable to you. You've now told us.

Tonkotsu Ramen: now how about firmware updates for all your other products sony?

Actually- almost all of them. Unless there's a good hardware-related reason the newer jpeg engine can't be rolled out to some (at least recent) cameras.

CameraLabTester: No amount of firmware will rescue a design that is originally flawed.

Well, at the very least they tried something different. Sales numbers will tell the tale.

Meanwhile Canikon churns out another iteration of the same. Which works, don't get me wrong, but is awfully boring.

RichRMA: You can't really vote for the Sony R's. They are far too new. Wait till they wring them out a bit more.

I assure you, you can indeed vote for the Sonys.

In reply to:

RichRMA: Do they have an I.S. mode that works on a tripod? Is someone likely to be using this hand-held?

Of course people are going to use it handheld. It's a 150-600, not a 600, and even if it were a straight 600 people would still use it handheld.

In reply to:

mrc4nl: as a m43 user a rectininear 10mm is great, the question for me is which mount should i choose.

a "native" m43 mount may yield better results (because a adapter will introduce small misalignments)

Or i choose i Nikon mount, so i can use it on a nikon body, but also on a speedbooster gaining one stop and perhaps even better sharpness.

Yes you can if you are perfectly happy with a center crop, and in many cases you could be.

In reply to:

expressivecanvas: Looks like Nikon is choosing to behave like Kodak in their last days in the camera business with logic like if you can't make money in the camera business, then try to make money in the courtroom. Perhaps we should be asking whether Nikon is headed down the same road.

Big corporation or profitless sole proprietorship: You create something. Someone makes a look alike that may keep naive grandmothers from buying your product for their grandkids. You do what?

It's cool. That money we spent making things look pretty is excellently spent on someone else milking it for all it's worth.

or

Make them stop selling it.

I can't believe this is an issue, I really can't.

In reply to:

Rjansenbr2: I have the same issues with the D610.

If you're serious, were there issues with the d600? If not, and with the extremely minor changes between the two, it would look like Nikon was effectively sabotaging Sigma.

On article Tamron to develop 150-600mm F5-6.3 ultra-telephoto zoom (193 comments in total)
In reply to:

Lee Jay: For it to be useful, it has to be sharp wide open at the long end on high pixel density sensors. If it isn't you might be better off with a sharp 400/5.6 and upresing. If it is, it could be a game changer.

How's that 400/5.6 perform at 200mm?

Your opinion only stands with a teeny tiny narrow viewpoint that this 4x zoom is no more useful than a 600/6.3.

In reply to:

hiro_pro: this should be the kit lens for the Nikon DF. sorry i got caught up in the hype.

i have had great success with tamron and VC. i cant wait to see this in the local shop and give it a try. i wonder if the VC will be enough to hand hold this beast at 600?

anyone want to guess how long this lens will be when racked out to 600?

and how much is a 95 mm polarizer? rhetorical. please dont answer.

As someone who hand holds a 600/4... me. I want to hand hold a 5-6lb camera/lens setup.

Ed555: He should have been ask why no printed manual was included with the RX100 -- and for that matter any high-end Sony camera. And the answer to "it's green" should have been answered with "how much would it have cost."

1. It's green and usually goes unused

2. 99% of idiots can figure the rx100 out

3. Evidence shows that the other 1% know how to use a web browser

In reply to:

tjwaggoner: Why wasnt he asked if he had any info on when BSI sensors would migrate to the larger formats? This is a question that intrigues me, as I think it may be the next big leap in sensor performance over the very marginal increases you get from most modern sensors today. Just my opinion, maybe some of you are more informed on the issue?

BSI just gets the wiring out of the way of photon capture. This is helpful in small sensors with high MP because the pixels are so dense and the wiring takes up x amount of space regardless of pixel size. Proportionally more blockage on tightly packed pixels.

With large pixels, the amount wiring in the way is proportionally very small compared to that on smaller sensors. BSI would not offer the same benefit to larger sensors unless with very large MP counts.
