ozturert: Have they underexposed by 5EV and then balanced the exposure? That is the new fashion in internet, you know...

Hi Richard. No everything wasn't fine, and everything wasn't bad.

I have only EOS M nowadays in Canon, and if my blacks are 5 stops underexposed then I take an HDR photo because applying +5EV to blacks is overkill even for A7RII or D810.
And yes, my EM5II's shadow recovery is better than EOS M. I used RX100IV for sometime, even that was slightly better or equal to what I could with EOS M in shadows. But then... so what?
And and and... yes taking -5EV photos and then bringing back shadows is the new king in internet :)

On article Sony delays 70-200mm GM lens until September (53 comments in total)

Are they delaying just to increase the price :)

At least Canon, unlike Nikon, acknowledges these issues as soon as they understand the problem.
Does anyone in Nikon really follow the world news?

Who buys those cameras new anyway...

In reply to:

ozturert: Now let's wait for first users to see if there's any glitch: Menu delays, battery issues, slow/unstable autofocus, light leakage etc.. But hey, this is not Nikon :)
Still, first versions have almost always bugs. Remember how everyone was enthusiastic about Sony A7 series, and only after 2-3 months we found out annoying issues that have only been corrected (partially) in the latest versions.
No discussion thought this looks like an excellent choice. Medium format in your (physically) palm? Unheard of. Good work Hasselblad!

Random Photographer, I think you really don't remember:
Weak lens mount in A7 and A7R, loud and vibrating mirror mechanism in A7r, slow (very) autofocus in A7r, bad (I mean, bad) autofocus performance in low light, sluggish performance (general operation, on/off time, picture review etc..), bad battery life, worst menu structure in industry, Sony claimed A7 series were weather sealed but then they pulled that claim back after their service centeres were flooded with bodies that let water in.
And etc...

On article Hasselblad to announce 'game changer' next week (455 comments in total)

I was expecting a medium format fixed lens camera from Sony. And maybe Sony will actually produce this new camera and Hasselblad will add a wooden grip to double the price? Just maybe...

On article D500 owner formally accuses Nikon of false advertising (474 comments in total)

This is Nikon. They will not pay attention and do necessary corrections on D500s.

Yake: Well, I like it. If I ever get into m43 again, this lens would be one of my top choices. But yes, pricey it is, especially when you consider what a Sigma 24/1.4 costs. Unfortunately, m43 doesn't offer cost savings.

The "equivalent depth of field" and "total light gathering" arguments are pointless. Everyone knows you get more depth of field and more noise with a smaller sensor. That's a given, just part of buying into a smaller system. But you also get: a smaller system. By definition, a larger system can NEVER offer equivalence in size and weight. So there is no equivalence. Period.

FastGlassLover, the problem is, Panasonic had to design a 12mm f1.4 lens, not a 24mm f2.8 one. Look at Fuji 16mm f1.4, that is as big as this and even heavier because Fuji designed a 16mm f1.4 lens, not a 24mm f2.0.
Not as straightforward as this but this is one of the reasons.
42.5mm f1.2 OIS is also large, in fact as large as Canon 50mm f1.2L. Guess why?

p5freak: Lets see if it has extreme distortions like the Oly 12mm f2, which have to be software corrected, which is pathetic.

Nearly every Sony FE mount lens is designed considering software correction, and even super expensive Leica T lenses are designed like that.
This is new age my friend, get used to that.

Very good lens, I'm sure. Pricey but good.

More depth of field is wanted often, as well. And weight/size is still an advantage (GH4 is a beast in m4/3 realm, all other cameras are tiny compared to that).
All systems have their drawbacks, none is perfect.

Olympus 12mm's corners are excellent. I'm sure this lens will be at least as good.

Horrible title. Even from the samples I wouldn't call it "destroys". But for 1500$, it destroys bank accounts for sure...

LR is one of the best, if not the best, photography related sites, thanks to MR mainly.

Now that we have DPReview review, Nikon can release D820 (or D900?).

ozturert: Someone should introduce color touch screens. I'm fed up with cryptic menus and screens that date back to Christ...

Tongki, then let me rephrase what you said to me above:
From what you were saying about "Canon speedlite E-TTL very stupid, always under expose and always tend to use full power" that define you know nothing about flash :)
