DXO is generally overrated.

This is a winner.

This headline is wacky: "Oh, wow... Sony announces 24MP a6300 with incredible AF and 8 fps live view bursts"

On article Delayed: Nikon Japan pushes D500 to end of April (139 comments in total)

Perhaps they are concerned about "scalpers" due to expected high demand. Imagine people buying D500s and then immediately putting them up on ebay for $4,000 because Nikon can't meet demand.

capanikon: Let's see this work on a fast telephoto wide-open though.

that race car shot, for example, doesn't look like a 200 f/2.8 at all. It looks more like they shot it mebbe 100mm at f/11. Not impressed.

On article 1.4 and More: Canon EF 35mm F1.4L II comparison (241 comments in total)

I prefer the shorter 35mm f/2. More compact. This 35mm looks like a short tele!

On article Top 5: Hands-on with Nikon D500 (799 comments in total)

Omitting the rinky-dink pop-up flash makes the D500 a more attractive camera, IMO.
Those pop-up flashes are beyond dumb. They belong only on Canon Rebels and the like.

yay.

Too big, heavy, expensive for a 35mm. Stick to f/2.0 for 35's.

Wow ... such low noise at ISO 800.

Looks like a great low-end/midrange FX body.

On article BPG image format aims to replace JPEGs (204 comments in total)

Wikipedia says "BPG is believed to be covered by some of the patents on HEVC, which makes LWN.net conclude that it is unlikely that BPG will replace JPEG, despite BPG's technical superiority."

capanikon: Eh. Canikon mirrorless is gonna crush Sony whenever they get around to taking mirrors seriously.

aps-c already has excellent dof control and great low-light performance. 35mm is one stop better in both regards. But medium format is even better than 35mm. I think aps-c provides a better balance than 35mm.

Personally I see little or no need for 36x24mm sensors (FF) in ML bodies as APS-C is more than good enough for my purposes. There is nothing magic about rectangles 36mm by 24mm in size. APS-C sensors also make supertelephoto glass more accessible, less expensive, lighter and smaller.

On article Nikon 1 V3 Review (649 comments in total)
In reply to:

sandy b: I will get one just for birding, that makes it worth the price of the ticket alone. The V3 and CX70-300 cost over $2000, and is well worth it.

Look at the Nikon 1 forum at the BIF and other shots with the combo. Incredible. Hand held 810 mm equiv. with amazing AF. For low light I have my D600. For everything else I am getting a V3. I like how Nikon has reacted to the market and made the enthusiast model.

Now, either get the Sony sensor or tweak the Aptina, and it will be a do anything camera.

I agree, N1 has an advantage for super tele work. A FX body with an 800mm lens will set you back some $20,000 but you can get the same reach with N1 for 1/10th as much.
