SRT3lkt: I don't need 36mp for tiny 35mm sensor.
I just took a closer look at the low light samples. And to put it straight, this "tiny monster" puts even the Canon 5D MK3 to shame.
Too bad DPR didn't put the 1D in line for comparison.
In one word - WOW!
"tiny 35mm sensor"?
babalu: I think I'll revise my opinion about vote rigging. I have now looked again at all the entries, and, just from an aesthetic point of view, this is a worthy winner. I concur with Rumpelhund's comment below.Congratulations . (still, the voting seems to have a strange pattern; 11 5.0 votes are very rare).
You're neglecting the beauty of the model. 11 out of ~35 giving a straight 5.0 to her hair and eyes shouldn't surprise anyone.
Anyway, statistically, the sample isn't large enough to show a real issue.
oldfogey: Regression to the median! One of the problems of challenges that also allow the entrants to vote is that the winner is most often the median of the entries. She does look cute - in a sexist sort of way - but hey - wasn't that how most of the entrants interpreted the challenge. This wasn't an effort at gender equality after all! The focal plane seems to be on the stockings rather than on the eye makeup.
She's not sitting on thin air, bro.. It's a stone bench. You should just change your monitor's settings a little bit, that's all.
And @ oldfogey - she's not just "cute", I think she's truly pretty. But I guess it's just a matter of taste...
Snaaks: get a life. seriously
John, some pretty 20 year old woman living on a 2nd floor apartment may not be _that_ boring after all...
Plus I don't think she'd be able to hear this tiny drone when she's in the shower - are you sure that any security cameras already exist in this kind of places as well?
Am I the only one wondering why DPReview has chosen to make a preview and not a full review for this lens?
I mean - They've done a real good job for a preview, but unlike camera reviews, the reviews for lens are usually only 4-5 pages anyway. So what's the overhead in running this one test that will give us their famous widget results and make this a proper *review*? Another single day of work?
Come on, DPReview - we trust you! I just wanna know how good this lens performs...
wy2lam: don't get it - why does firmware need to be upgraded in order to support a new lens?
I don't *know*, but I can guess it might be for adding parameters for a lens correction function, if the 5D has this feature.
