On Nikon offers AF-S DX Nikkor 16-80mm F2.8-4E ED VR article (308 comments in total)
In reply to:

Xentinus: No doubt its optical performance will be very good,but I would prefere a real ultra wide angle lens (for example tokina 12-24) and 50mm 1.8 D for maybe less money.(you can even get an 85 1.8D instead of 50)
but it is just me :)

Nah you should buy a 1000 USD walk around lens and eat raw...raw is better than jpeg ;)

On Canon EOS 70D Review preview (695 comments in total)

User7673929503: Hello,

I am planning to buy Canon 70D, with Canon EF-S 18-200 mm f/3.5-5.6 IS lens. My intention behind buying this lens is just to make sure that I need not carry multiple lenses, and this should help me learn DSLR techniques. Please advise if this is a good combination.

Thank you.

I'd go for an 18-135 STM...it is sharp,cheap and quiet for video mode.
Despite Canon's sensors are behind Sony's,I am seriously thinking about switching to Canon.

Xentinus: I know there are many "if" scenarios and I don't want to be unfair for an innovative company;but while it is not lightweight and there are prime options, If it was 20-35 f 2.0 then it would have been special.
18-35 1.8 was/is special because of 1.8 aperture at 18mm.

I wouldn't define it as "fault",but personal preference.the point is; who would prefere this lens over many other alternatives.
Tell me please why would u leave 24-70 at home?
for versatility? for weight? for size? for wider focal length?

Of course it is a dx lens!
for dx users there was no option at 18 mm f 1.8,this is why it is a special lens.
but for fx users there are many alternatives even faster than f 2.

Xentinus: Doesn't it have 120 fps at 720p video recording?

Actually I have read that it has 120 fps at 720 naturally...I think it requires hack.

In reply to:

PG Thomas: Nice to see - but I would have preferred a F2.8, like the 14mm, and possibly half the size (and price).

I struggle to see the advantage of sub F2 lenses at this focal length on, what should be a small light camera system. There's not a great deal of differential focus between F1.4 and F2 or F2.8 below 20mm, provided the lens is sharp wide open - which the Fujinons I have, all are.

Still, If I had the cash, I'd be considering it...

Fuji already has a 14 mm 2.8 lens

CameraLabTester: Nikon is a good company with good products.

Hopefully, there won't be a time when they have to explain why they disappeared from the planet, entirely.

.

You are here to explain us why ;)
