Jane79: Lars, could you post the tag that has to be used in the new "homepage personalization" section of the account settings to not get any Connect related news on the homepage? "phone-news" and "connect" do not work. A list of all working tags would be even better! Thank you so very much!

I did. A week ago. No reply from DPR.

Jonathan F/2: Nice ad (masquerading as an article) to help bolster Amazon pre-orders.

There's a huge bright section below the article with Amazon preorder links for both the camera and the filmmaker kit. But DPR is part of Amazon, that's no secret, so the links are OK in my opinion.

On Nikon D4s First Impressions Review preview (1047 comments in total)

Everybody had to accept the much lower battery capacity of the D4 because of some Japanese regulation and now it's suddenly possible to make a battery of the same size for a camera of the same size with much larger capacity? Did Japan change the regulations once again? Can the new EN-EL18a be used in the D4?

On FroKnowsPhoto's Video Guide on sale article (143 comments in total)

I used to watch your videos with Lilian and the ones about your mum and how you came about to wear a fro, one of those made me cry. Your videos about photography are nice too, so is the sniffing test. However, I've stopped visiting your site because it takes very long to load, there's way too much stuff on it. Simple, quick and clean, sometimes less is more. It works for Google! :-)

On Canon Korea teases new camera, EOS M2 or SL1/100D? article (259 comments in total)

DPReview should really refrain from posting rumours and speculations to generate website traffic. You already know everything and probably have the camera in your hands; pretending to speculate is silly, to put it lightly.

In reply to:

bossa: The night shot on the official samples page doesn't show point sources for the street lights. They are all triangles and sheared. There's also lots of blue fringing around lots of the lights (purple fringing).

Looking at the portraits the lens doesn't seem as contrasty or sharp at f/2 as one would like. My DA*55 seems better.

I'll take a look at one when they are available though as I love my 35/1.4 G despite what people say about it.

Yes, the lights in the corners in the night shot are not so good, and that's at f/2.0.

On Zeiss announces 'no compromise' Otus 55mm F1.4 article (507 comments in total)
In reply to:

Paul Petersen: But will it out resolve the much cheaper Sigma 35 F1.4? I know they are different focal lengths but just saying.

No, the lenscore guys/gals test lenses on a super hirez cam (200MP iirc), and unlike dxo, they don't test lenses provided by manufacturers.

22 lenses currently outresolve the Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM in the lenscore database, including a number of Zeiss lenses. I think it's safe to assume that this lens will outresolve not just the Sigma 35mm but most other lenses as well.

On Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX1 Hands-on Preview preview (626 comments in total)
In reply to:

MrFlash: It doesn't matter if the sensor is the size of a microchip or a postcard. IQ is all that matters. With the big sensor and Zeiss glass it certainly has potential for excellent IQ but I don't get the market niche. Without a OVF or at least a built-in EVF it's just another 'hold out in front of you' point 'n shoot. A VERY expensive P&S that won't fit in any pocket.

In order to use it as a serious camera, you have to stick a EVF or OVF on top of it? How much info is available in that $600 OVF? I'll bet none. Which brings it back (at least for me) to P&S status. Does the OVF adjust for parallax ? I'll bet not.

It might be a 'modern' competitor for the Leica X2, but certainly not the M9 or X-Pro1. The hybrid OVF is what separates the X100 (and X-Pro1) from the rest of the field. Sony is still not playing in that league.

Sensor size actually does matter as it is a limiting factor in determining depth of field.

In reply to:

ProfHankD: I'd so much rather have this sensor in a NEX-6/7 body... but this is a product without peers. Given the form factor, I think Sony missed an opportunity to do easy and effective environmental seals, but I'm not sure Sony would sell a lot of this model in any case. No matter.

The 3 FF products Sony announced today pretty much set the courses of all types of high-quality cameras toward FF -- unifying "pro" compact, still, and video forms at the (Sony-built) sensor. Sony has shown a way to survive the attack of the cell phones.

Now if only they'd get that FF NEX-6/7 out.... ;)

The image circle of E mount lenses is too small for FF sensors.

Elieser: Too simple for profi, too expensive for amateur.
As for profi: any camera without
1) Viewfinder
2) Interchangeable lenses
3) Phase detection focus
4) Convenience of holding
Cann't replace DSLR in any circumstances.

As for amateur or diletant - too expensive

This camera is not meant to replace DSLRs.
