Boky: can this grip help canon, and this camera in particular, produce sharp photos...?

Nick

Get a grip.

Michael_13: Although a good idea, I find it rather expensive.

SMALL price to pay for a MUCH better handling experience. If 35 bucks is too expensive, you should get into the hobby of collecting aluminum cans instead of photography.

ThatCamFan: I do not trust a piece of tape to not fall off with time breaking the camera.

I don't trust your reply.

viking79: I have never understood "pro" support. Have spare gear.

Maybe the missing link for understanding is being a pro. Just a thought.

cgarrard: Nice range, rounded blades, weather resistant, quiet focusing, HD coating, ED element, nice size... now we need to see the optical quality tests. Sounds like an ideal zoom lens for many applications. If the optical quality is there, the price on the street will likely be $699 soon and that will be a great deal. 750 is lofty, despite it performing excellent optically- if it does.

Take care!

photo nuts: US$750 for a slow zoom lens... hmmm...

Is the Nikon weather sealed? Or the Canon?

Its also wider, and 2mm wider creates a bigger design challenge iudex, also, you have to factor in not only the range but the *quality* of the range. Not all 18 something lenses have the same quality at 18mm now do they?

Look I'm done with this convo... its apparent to me that value to you is value to you..., but when you attempt to speak for others on value, thats where you're going wrong here.

Nuff said on this, take care.

Ludex, the range of the 18-35mm Sigma is MUCH less than 16-85mm. Comparing apples to oranges here big time. Not only is the range less its less of an optical challenge to make that short 2x zoom range a brighter aperture. Sorry your arguments are a bit lofty, in the clouds lofty.

Show me a 16-85mm produced Sigma lens that has weather sealing for less than 750 bucks, or a Tamron with that range.

Good luck bud.

Hence my comment Ludex that 750 is lofty, or did you stop reading before you got to that point?

And remember, the lens may not be valuable to *you*, even at the price I mentioned, however... the way you word your reply is as if your speaking for the entire community. :)

For me, if it performs optically as well as say Sony's 16-80 Zeiss, that is actually more expensive and not much faster (f/3.5-4.5), I'd find this lens to be of great value. Its quiet focusing, weather resistance, and HD coating would trump the Sony or Canon equivalents alone. But again, optics need to be good.

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX100 First Impressions Review preview (1764 comments in total)
In reply to:

TheWhiteDog: With all these preliminary articles about this mighty mite of a camera I hope that you are diligently "fast tracking" a full review of it. After all, the holiday season is fast approaching and we need gift ideas for ourselves!

Just buy it, can't you tell by the tone of the review its going to get a gold award? :)

Oh and btw, this camera shares many of the charms of the LC1/Digilux 2, only not *as* charming. That camera with a better sensor and evf would be ridiculous. This is the closest that Pana will come to a successor to it, I'm afraid.

TEBnewyork: Hi Richard -

My camera arrived today so looking forward to working with it...how is the auto lens cap working out? Looking around for one...found silver even though no silver cameras out yet.

Ricoh pioneered it, then Oly copied it, now Panasonic :)

On Canon PowerShot G10 Review preview (1 comment in total)

Still a fantastic camera, and how wrong the conclusion was about how popular the G10 would be :). It's certainly not easy to predict camera sales or popularity, however, the G10 offered so much right I can't see how the conclusion could be anything other than highly recommended. Having owned the G10 before, twice, I still crave using it despite the fact that I've owned the G11,12, 15, and now 16 since. Although the G16 is infinitely better in many respects, the G10 remains the kind of camera that challenges the photographer to do everything right - and when he/she does, it rewards you with fantastic image quality.

If you drop the camera it will just splash.

K silly moment over.

PhotoKhan: I am amazed on how, amidst all the bubbling-coffee-house-hipster sea of gadgetry that recurrently hits our tech shores, people seem to be failing to see how actually radically-innovative this particular proposal truly is.

Sometimes people can't be told, they need to use or see for themselves before they "get" it :).

Oh well I still disagree then :). I think the K-01 is better looking than the K-S1, for sure.

Targeting Japan and Women I think, but I can't tell. I can't get past wanting to laugh at this announcement.

Sorry Pentax/Ricoh. You lost me on this one :). Good luck in your endeavor here though- hope it pays off.
