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 (2816 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... :(

Jim in AZ: Does Nikon have any zooms that can take advantage of the resolution?

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.

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?

In reply to:

samhain: Tamron timed their announcement for their new stabilized 24-70mm perfectly.
Blows me away that companies who chose in-lens stabilization over in-body are putting out non-stabilized lenses, especially the most important ones, like 24-70mm f2.8.
If I shot with canon FF...oh I'd be p*ssed off right now.

Why is everybody complaining about IS? This f/2.8 lens is especially handy for portrait, wedding and journalism photographers. There you need shorter shutter speeds (minimum 1/80th) to freeze movement of the people, and at that shutter speed you don't need VR/IS.

Yes VR/IS as an extra is always good, but that would make the lens bulkier and maybe even less sharp.

In reply to:

T3: The camera and lens are way too big for the size of the sensor. Fail. Regardless of how the image quality is, such a small sensor means terrible DOF control.

Terrible DoF control? The aperture switch works just fine!

Oh... You probably mean that it hasn't got a narrow DoF due to its sensor. True, but 90% of the users don't even think about DoF.

Awesome shot!

What I don't get though is how you did those reflections if the shot is made upside down. Or is that Photoshop?
