pictureAngst: Towards the end of the video, a new 'wobbling' technology is promoted for 'advanced performance'.

I'm sure it's very impressive, but if I were a member of the development team who had spent years of tireless research on this, I would be getting ready to lynch the marketing department.

'Wobbling'... !!!!!

'SuperWobblyShot'

I like it!

Wye Photography: Please give me one good reason why I would want this lens on my Leica M2?

Sorry, my last comment was supposed to be a joke but came out a bit catty.

And looking at your great site, it looks like any cat photos would require it to be suspended on the end of a rope on the side of a mountain, which while being the ULTIMATE cat photo, is probably not advisable.

So that you can enjoy posting about how bad it is at taking cat photos compared to your Leica Summilux?

photomedium: Testing new cameras and having a brewski on the job while wearing a cravat. What a life! ;-)

They didn't drink the beer because they were more interested in the optics.

The Name is Bond: I really prefer to read. Videos are slow and, well, often lacking in well formed/expressed opinions. All it's all very samey these days.

These blasted new cameras are making it too easy to replace the well-written with the videoed.

"These blasted new cameras..."

Bond, I can hear Q gnashing his teeth at you!

jorepuusa: It breaks my heart to see how awkward way these photogs hold their cameras.
There are certain standards, look how the pros touch and hold their gear.
A carpenter does not hit the nail with the wooden handle of his hammer.

The dilemma with standards is deciding which standard to use.

I've seen a few different approaches to swimming safely with sharks, mostly involving clothing that mimics the appearance of deadly or unsavoury creatures.

This is the first approach I've seen that employs clothing designed to make the shark think "WTF???"

Can you get an Exolens adapter for these lenses to fit my iPhone?
I don't think the Zeiss ones will be good enough to exploit my hi-def 4x3mm sensor

dmanthree: So many caveats, so much money.

Even the dog in sample 11 looks cynical about this camera!

pictureAngst: Great to see Nikon innovating again - can only be good for the industry and for us

What I was trying to say was any innovation of any type by any camera manufacturer has to be good, since it motivates the industry and gives us choice.

Unless of course you're main reason for being into photography is to win the brand pi$$ing contest, in which case this announcement will have either lengthened or shortened your peak flow.

Innovation doesn't have to be revolutionary - progression and refinement of ideas that already work count too.

eno2: And now the Leica SL viewfinder undergone a huge resolution downgrade to only 4.4 million dots from pixels: "The highlight of the SL is undoubted its 4.4 megapixel 'EyeRes' EVF".

You should change the viewfinder description of that camera, it has only 1,41 Mp not 4,4 MP as most of the internet folks (including you) wrongly advertised it. :)

Ah I see my mistake - apologies to the OP.

What are you going on about?

'Dots' and 'pixels' are interchangeable terms here, unless they are stacked in some way (like Fovean) or contain white pixels for brightness only (like Sony's screens).

In this case 4.1 megapixels is the same as 4.1 million dots.

In reply to:

shleed: Kudos to Sony actually fixing it. Sony fanboys can actually brag about DR now.

Doesn't change the fact that mirrorless is still in its infancy. When it is better developed, I'll probably go with Fujifilm.

Given your mildly offensive attitude, this Fuji fanboy prefers you stay away.

ZeneticX: Photos like these make me wanna get a diving license whenever there's a chance and time

@wildbird: I'm not jealous at all, not one bit.

I live in England where the even-more-rainy season has started, so I have endless opportunities to take dramatic and beautiful images of snails, puddles, and wet people. I may even start running workshops myself.

Humpback whales - pah, overrated.

In reply to:

lancespring: It would be such great sport to harpoon one of these massive animals. I envy the old whalers of the 19th and early 20th century. What great adventures they must of had hunting these animals.

I really fell in love with the romance of whaling as a boy, reading Moby Dick in my American Literature class. Even though Captain Ahab led himself and his entire crew to destruction, I so wanted to join them in killing Moby Dick. Ye damned whale!

Never mind - keep up the dentistry and perhaps one day you'll find a special whale safari to relieve the monotony of those African holidays.

CekariYH: I will newer buy an inkjet again until they are delivered with a CLEANING and LONG TERM PARKING SET of cartridges so when you need it's ready to go when you changed to the ink-set. Have thrown away 3-4 great printers due to costs to clean clogged heads with ink and many times not even succeed to clean them, making color-prints unusable :-/

@Lan: presumably head cleaning doesn't use much ink? In theory, just enough to get fresh ink through each hole should be enough, and I'm guessing that would be the equivalent of a couple of millimetres on the paper(?)

All printers should have a built-in clock which runs a head-cleaning cycle every 5 days after last use.

Since most wifi printers are left on standby nowadays this would fix the drying up problem.
