    Actually his Ultraprints are pretty spectacular, even if they are not my cup of tea. You can approach them with a magnifying loupe and discover great amount of further detail even in a one square ...
  • Replied in Off topic
    Yes, I fully agree that Ming too weighs lenses according to his particular needs. In his approach, I think, he is very close to Chambers, that is: static images, maximum IQ, making his best to ...
  • Replied in Only?
    Internet surely does spoil us, but you cannot expect that people will keep churning out quality content long term for free. (Look what happened to Bjorn Rorslett's site. He used to be the No 1 ...
  • Replied in Are you sure?
    LOL. We'll see. ;-) Last year I bought the Zeiss 135/2 - partly listening to your praises of this lens - to see how it compares to my Voigtlander 125/2.5. I told my wife that I'll sell the one ...
  • You may have a different opinion, but why is this arrogance?
  • Important to think about a ND grad filter as you may very likely end up with white skies in Iceland. I had the 14-24 on a D700 3 years ago, but took filters and I'm glad I did. Also, do try to ...
  • Replied in Nightmares?
    Nightmares? No, profit. They are quite happy about our gear acquisition frenzy.
  • The pictures you referred to look very nice. I had Nikon's 12-24, which was considered very slightly better than the 10-24. I sold it about a year ago and if my memory serves me well, it seemed ...
  • You will have to find out whether its an alternative pricewise and for IQ. The 11-24 is not a bad lens for DX, but it's not f/2.8. I do not know it's price, but assume it has to cost more than the ...
  • Just did that. But when I come home and take a peek into dpreview forum, I find this... ;-)
  • Point taken, as this lens allows for perspective corrections and adjustments of depth of field otherwise unobtainable with normal lenses. However, this is a manual focus and fussy lens to use, so ...
  • This is how Llloyd Chambers likes to shoot lansdcapes. Or at least he advocates it. I do like good bokeh, but rather for portrait backgrounds not for lansdcapes. Well it is used by me. I know ...
  • I'm afraid focal lenghts of other photographers will not help me too much. I've done my homework about two years ago when I was still using zooms (well, not any more). I analysed with a software ...
  • Created discussions 10K timelapse video

  • Replied in Buyers remorse?
    I'm still rather far from having buyers remorse as the Nikon 24/1.4 is an exceptional lens. Sigma may be better for some tasks, but we'll see. But to the point: isn't it somewhat of an oxymoron ...
  • Sigma claims the 24mm Art should be the best performing lens of its type, and DPREVIEW staff present at CP+ tends to agree. They say it has very good sharpness wide open, and across the frame. ...
  • Better one good lens than two that do not match well with DSLRs.
  • The most useful zoom on DX. Full stop.
  • I bought my 85/1.4 in the D70 era. Later I sold that camera and switched to a D300 that had no problem with any of my other lenses. I do not remember any difference between the two cameras ...
