Great interview. Probably one of the best things I've read on DPR in years. And yes, what a nice an unassuming guy Emmanuel is.
amazing range of photos...from edge of space to the last corner of the earth....beautiful shots.
a real Silent shutter like the Sony A7RII, etc.
WOW! So amazing and inspiring, want to go out and learn ice climbing

Hahaha LOL! Who is this camera for? Hulk?
This is a rebranded Tamron lens which has good reviews on B&H and it's a fair prices for an image stabilized lens. http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/845350-REG/Tamron_SP_24_70mm_f_2_8_DI.html
DVT80111: No image stabilizer still?
it has IS it's called WR on pentax.
semorg: thanks of sharing, but I don't think it's a great article. I'm not sure if the article is about composition, HDR technique or post-processing.
1 - if it's composition, for me it doesn't work and the image has no draw. At least for me.2 - if it's about HDR technique. I think the HDR is not that great and it doesn't add that much more DR to the image with all the blown-out highlights.3 - if it's about post-processing technique, then it's EVEN WORSE. Because I noticed you are using different color temperature in your different frames. ANY ONE knowing anything about panorama stitching knows not to leave their Color Balance in "As Shot" mode. It's a biggest no-no.
However, your article remind me. Perhaps I should write something on panorama and HDR panos. As I have done a bunch of them and it seems like yourself and others can benefit from it.

Best DPreview update in years.
semorg: I'm not sure what use these images are. They're not raw. They're not shot with tripods, and many of them have the focus on the wrong place.
Seems to me the DPreivew guys just took the camera out during an event and shared a few photos. "Real world" is meaningless
interesting....I'm on retina. About tripod with 42 MP smallest shake (even with image stabilization) will impact sharpness. Especially given prior edge issues with the A7R and some lenses, it's critical to eliminate all variables.
@seamew thanks for the thoughtful reply.
Actually the contrary. I only looked at original size. The zeiss Batis 25/2 samples are often focused on the wrong area. The hair is the sharp part of the image while the eyes are not in the focal plane. There is no good sample that shows the resolving power of the edges of the image to see if they are impacted and how sony is handling them. A lot of these photos are taken without purpose of showing what the camera can or can not do. It seems like everyone was happy to meet Guy Kawasaki and took a camera along. Especially not including RAW files was/is a big omission.

semorg: There is no information about the people behind photographers.pro. There is no "about" section, who are the founders or who is the CEO, etc. What are they hiding?
Till then, I'll give my support to SmugMug who has been a family operated business for past 12-13 years and are very transparent about their team
I want to know who is behind them. SmugMug provides a lot of info under their "About" section

This was probably the first Leica I was excited about, until I saw the nasty BANDING on the chair image above (only ISO 320). Just look at the black chairs and all you see is banding. I wish they would have used a different sensor. Sigh!
This is an incredible shot! So well planned and so difficult to execute. Well done!
I just don't understand what's with all the haters???
