Chaitanya S: I know there is a big market for a lens of this class. Still I would like to see canon replace that pre-historic 50mm macro with a new macro lens.

No need to wait, just get a Sigma 50/2.8 Macro.
Excellent lens, gives you true macro (1:1), without extra adapter.

justmeMN: "US $649 (Canon EF mount)" Yikes! :-)

$649? For that amount of many, you can also have a Canon body.

Martin Crombie Photography: Wow, amazing clarity from this 50mp behemoth. Thanks DP Review

Impressive amount of detail, the 85/1.8 surely still is good enough for a 5Ds.
How was the lightning for this shot ? Judging from the reflections in your eyes, I see one big softbox on one side, and a large reflector on the opposite side ?

On Canon EOS 7D Mark II First Impressions Review preview (2696 comments in total)
In reply to:

Coyote_Cody: It appears that the 700D has more resolution than does the 7DII, OR has better focus. See- the middle left line drawing pic has the highest (&/or easiest to see) resolution of the whole scene. (always use Phase 1 as ref for resolution - or the Pentax 645 in old scene)

Me wonders why Canon does not offer a 'high resolution' mode that uses all the pixels in a traditional bayer sense, IQ would be less me thinks but an interesting mode - something akin to sensor shifting ?!

Of course the rational question is - how much resolution does one REALLY need ??

Indeed, looks like the 700D is better at resolving fine details. Maybe it has a weak AA filter.

Cane: Add a $5 wood grip, charge $1000 for it.

That's how you make profit. The shareholders must be very happy with this kind of business plan.

Yet another completely ridiculous product. What are they smoking at HTC ?

On 'See Impossible': Canon counts down to... something. article (1656 comments in total)

Looks like it's just some crappy new website,... with bubbles ?
It leads to a site with "stories", "recommended products", ...
So, old wine in new bags. No new camera or lens.

On Leica T (Typ 701) First Impressions Review preview (2251 comments in total)
In reply to:

Kelvin L: Looks nice. It's a shame that material designs such as these (and other digital appliances) outlive their usefulness due to technological obsolescence. I feel sad when I see all these solidly-built Leica M8s, Canon 1Ds and Nikon D1/D2 bodies gather dust because their utility is gone or the electronics are slowly rotting away.

I still use my old 1Ds. It's slow like hell, but gives me very sharp 11mpix.

Still no real MLU ? Damn.

In reply to:

gordon lafleur: Canon, still king of the dslrs, however the Fuji pro sensor blows everyones doors off, RAW or jpg. I can't believe how bad sony looks.

Indeed, compared to the other cameras, the raw output from Fuji sensor looks incredibly clean, even at high iso. Makes you wonder why it stops at only iso 6400 ?

Cool, no doubt it will be a great lens, but I bet the price will be "great" as well, cfr the 150/2.8 OS.
