Thanks, Canon, for leaving the DSLM market to other manufacturers to profit from.

"Social photography"? Right...

On Nikon Df preview (2816 comments in total)

The camera on IQ is as expected; good on noise control, rather mediocre on resolving power. No moire is very good. Overall, overpriced ...

On Camera roundups 2013: What to buy and why article (286 comments in total)
In reply to:

RStyga: Let's us dispense with the myth that all "professional" photographers know exactly what they want or what it is required. I have seen a fair share of them not having a clue about what gear to buy, not only because they fail to follow the industry's rapid changes (understandable to a certain a extent) but also because they don't even know basic technological terminology (e.g. what is VC/IS/OIS/IS).

There is a significant difference between a person who makes money out of taking photographs, a photographer (in the artistic sense), and one who knows about photographic technology and application. Neither category implies any of the other.

I second that; I'm Greek and never heard anything in my language that could be a root to profess(ion)/al. It sure looks of Latin origin.

In reply to:

RStyga: The moire in A7R and Nikon D610 is shocking, and cannot be removed in post processing. MOIRE IS CATASTROPHIC TO IQ.

You surely can remove moire at the expense of IQ. That's not acceptable.

Much better, much better than A7R... Thankfully, they still produce cameras WITH AA filters...

To the special bunch of "photographers" above, who made "meaningful" contributions to this sub-thread:
You don't need a Leica to make equally good shots; this is a valid point, not a null one, unless you have a specific arrogance-induced perceptual handicap. So, posting a link with great shots proves nothing on the gear but on the photographers. Digital Leicas do indeed have superior RAW output and, of course, wonderful lenses, but not the industry's exclusivity on it; get over it and stop implying otherwise as you will only strengthen the points made before, that Leica owners are slightly delusional.

There is quite a number of photo professionals that shame their profession. There's no real point in limiting this competition to professionals...

You don't need a Leica to take such photographs... Especially, if they are taken by a film camera...

Really tricky to arrest with a camera, indeed. What's "BIF"?

A few of the entries are B/W. By the way, why NOT B/W???

This challenge is self conflicting... Disqualify a huge droplet reflecting the centre of a leaf and leave entries where droplets are too small to reflect anything at all???

On Sony Alpha A7 / A7R preview (2372 comments in total)

The colour moire and noise is significantly worse than the competition... at times it is unacceptable. I hope A7, with its AA filter on and lower resolution, performs much better than this.. AA filters are necessary; enough with this fashionable AA-less nonsense...

Alejandro Ruiz: Congratulations for the subtle way "Some people might find a focal length of 35mm limiting" is illustrated by the girl photo.
Love this camera but 35 mm severely compromises portraiture, unless the model is in the center of the frame, you gonna get in trouble with her...
Why there is no 50 mm fixed lens in the market ?

Have you ever heard of Gaussian blur? It's the easiest thing to do, unlike sharpening... I've read a lot of arguments against the Foveon cameras but never that it's too sharp!
