artnaz: First of all, you have to enable all these "hidden adjustments" every time you edit a new photo. Only that makes it cumbersome, and incomparable with Aperture.

And then there's brushes, stacking, colour, etc, etc. etc. Really disappointed. It will suffice as my iPhone-photos-on-computer-importer though.

Got it, thanks a lot puma1824! :) I guess I was looking at each adjustment to add to the default set, like in Aperture.

Where is that "save to default"?

saeba77: for Nikon user....why buy this manual focus lens if for the same price i can take the 85 f1.4 AFD (used), the sigma 85 f1.4 (new) or the samyang for half the price (manual focus as this) ?
Yes this is a f1.2 but is there so much difference from f1.4? (i never try so it's not a sarcastic question:) )

@GlobalGuyUSA: I've recalculated it, it's the following (like your information):
f/1 + 1/2 = 1.189
f/1 + 2/3 = 1.260
f/1 + 1/1 = 1.414
So you were correct, it's more half a stop than a third stop difference, according to the exact numbers.

That being said, I was wondering what the real F-stops of the Canon 50/1.2 and 85/1.2II vs the Nikon 1.4G variants would be, but I have trouble finding these numbers... :(

Doesn't matter much in real world like I said earlier, but it's still interesting! :D

Dammit, no I really want an A7! This Batis 85mm and a Loxia 35mm and I'd be super happy!

@Meerkato: f/1.2 has 1/3 of stop difference with f/1.4. I did try the 85/1.2II vs the 85/1.4G, and found the difference negligible. But yes, if you take identical photos and compare them scrupulously, you can find a difference. Not worth to me though, I'd much prefer the faster and more accurate focusing of 85/1.4G.

That being said, a new 85mm is like this release is always interesting!

Skwoo1: I like Aperture. I will miss it. Since Jan I have been struggling to learn Adobe Lightroom.

1) At some point, a new version of OSX won't support it
2) At some point, you have to switch since the competition has surpassed it (for example Lightroom 10)

So you'll be forced to switch anyway. But you're right, at this moment I still prefer Aperture 3.

Nice review, but I think the absence of Novoflex and Really Right Stuff is a big deal!

Me too, there are some options I like (importing/exporting options, lens corrections), but the most important thing where it seriously is workflow. The user interface is so much easier, faster, and logical... Also, you can brush anything you want, make several edits with same tool... And I like Auto Curves a lot more than LR's auto exposure and the Definition is more practical than Clarity too. So all in all Lightroom does the job, but I spent way more time there and I end up more often in Photoshop. :(

On Zeiss introduces 'no distortion' Otus 1.4/85mm article (338 comments in total)

I don't remember someone ever complaining about the distortion of a 85mm in real usage.

That being said, I am curious about the added sharpness and contrast of this beast fully open.

Lightweight003: Go back to sleep Nikon!!! - OR start getting INOVATIVE - AND giving value-for -money please. STOP doing silly little upgrades - especially to your Consumer range of DSLRs, try incorporating Vari-angle screens on at least the D7000 range, - AND perhaps on the D3000 range; - NOT just on the D5000 range. DONT make the bodies any smaller; we want a DSLR that we can see & hold comfortable; - those who want smaller cameras will buy compacts or CSC cameras. Sony is being INOVATIVE, so is Olympus; - you USED TO BE.

It's very NICE how YOU project YOUR PERSONAL OPINION on Nikon's WHOLE CORPORATION, as if YOU are representing ALL THE PEOPLE in the WORLD.

I must admit though, SHOUTING and EXAGGERATING is very PERSUASIVE, I'm fully WITH YOU after reading this!

On Nikon Df preview (2792 comments in total)

I don't get the argument of "it's not easy to change the shooting mode or EV compensation when having the camera at eye level". How much do you change this stuff?

Anyway, I absolutely adore the Df. Yes, it's mainly because of the design. And the excellent D4-sensor. Oh, but I wish it had video - always good to have the option!

Owning the more practical D800, and not having too much money, the Df will have to wait. But, I'd so much like it to have as a walk-around camera with a small 35/2.0... :(

14-24, 16-35, 24-70, 24-120, 70-200. 200-400 and probably 17-35.

On Blackmagic Designs announces Blackmagic Cinema Camera article (354 comments in total)

Zeiss ZF? That means Nikon F-mount. Why don't they say "Nikon F-mount" which covers all possibilities including the Zeiss ZF?

Or am I missing something? Maybe because the ZF are mechanically the same as the old Nikon Ai(s) lenses?

derfla1949: dpreview is increasingly disappointing.
Press releases and marketing hype instead of reviews of cameras and lenses.

The last in-depth review of a lens dates from?
The last in-depth review of a camera dates from?

Please, please, think it over.

dpreview not so long ago was a valuable source of information.
dpreview today is rapidly losing value.

Agree about the lenses, but I think they do an excellent job with the cameras. There reviews are real "in-depth", and that's time consuming. And I don't think it really takes too long.

On First Impressions: Using the Nikon D4 article (183 comments in total)

I'm most eager to know if the dynamic range really is that much improved over the D3-series, as the Nikon reps have stated.

On ISO 12800 photo in dpreview review samples's photo gallery (10 comments in total)

Shame you can't zoom in to 100%. But it looks like 1.5-2.0 stops advantage over the 12MP of a D700, so I'm impressed!

If the D800 is as good when downsampled, I think I'll go for it, even though my D700 is still a perfect camera.

Up to 4.5 stops shake reduction? Since when has in-camera stabilization become better than stabilization in the lens?
