In reply to:

Menneisyys: DPR, did you ask them about supporting the Fuji X and/or the Samsung NX mounts? Those are the mounts I'd love to see the Art 2.8 glasses and the 8-16. (These two mounts both lack high-quality but still, compared to native glass, really cheap glass like these - and, with the 8-16, *significantly* wider than anything natively available.)

EDIT: now I see they indirectly answered the question: "DSLRs first, particularly Canon and Nikon, since most of our customers use those systems. And after that mirrorless. Sony FE-mount. "

I wonder how they can asses the number of customers if they don't even have any X or NX mount glass?

Also, let's not forget one thing: Canon and Nikon mounts are already solid, estabilished mounts. They don't seem to go away anywhere soon.

Meanwhile, new mounts like E-mount, NX mount or X mount, how long are they going to last? We are not sure yet. Sigma is not sure yet. They are very clear about having limited resources and have to prioritise not the main mounts, but the ones they know will last for longer.

(of course, mount-wise they could show the K-mount some love too, since it's the older one still in use. But then PentaCoh has such a small market share that's not worth it)

Maybe he just follows the sales numbers for cameras. And then, based on his experience and "gut feeling" try to predict how many % of that user base would actually buy their lenses.

I'm not a Canikon user, but I can't blame Sigma for focusing on those two mounts.

Steve in Scotland: Shoot raw/jpeg. Choose neutral, vivid, monotone whatever in camera the same way you could choose film type. Submit the jpeg as the entry and the raw file as the proof.

Yeah, like photographers would willingly send their RAW files to those newspaper/magazines/whatnots that hold those contests.

I wouldn't!

In reply to:

Mirrorless Crusader: Who cares if someone digitall manipulates a photograph? Cameras already cook the raw files and raw converters manipulate the data as well.

But pre-cooked RAW doesn't change a whole scene, like adding a person that wasn't there or vice-versa for example.

I guess those disqualified pictures had some more extreme case of manipulations other than just color correcting/cropping.

sgitlin: I have a question re image #5, the black rhino at night. According to the exif data the exposure was ISO 1600, f5.6, for 30 seconds. If you blow the picture up to its max. you can see slight star trails instead of points for the stars, which makes me think that 30 seconds is probably correct for exposure time. If it is correct, it's amazing that the rhino doesn't move a centimeter during that whole time, as the image is extremely sharp, even the hairs on its ear. Does this seem possible, or am I missing something here?

If you make a very long exposure, the camera won't record movements. Maybe de Rhino moved just after the picture was taken.

Paul_B Midlands UK: Fabulous photos, and praise from all posters how nice. so nice to see comments bitchin free.

"bitching free"? You either are being sarcastic or haven't paid careful attention. There's plenty of "Meh. He's using remote cameras. I don't see any skills in that" comments.

RobertZ_si: For photo Vineyards Slovenia (5), type "slovenija vinsko srce" into google pictures...came across ? copy of the copy

Well..... type "Eiffel Tower" and you'll see many copy of the copies. I guess it's just a matter of it being an obvious subject, with that heart-shaped road.

But the photographer had the care to come back later when the lighting was good. So it's not really a matter of subject/framing but also how well you do it.

marc petzold: Any why is that, we'd see a not only very old Galaxy Smartphone review ages later after release - but here onto the main DPR site? It's simply a review for connect dpreview, not the Main site here. Perhaps Lars Rehm was sleeping,
or just Banana at this moment, no offence. ;)

I guess it doesn't go to Connect because it's not a phone...

@Zeiss - Sony has ended with that strategy of showing wooden cameras. Didn't quite work well for the A700's successor :p

Still making the best sensors currently?

Don't take my comment seriously. I just couldn't resist that pun :)

I'm having issues with straight lines. At least in closed environments, like a living room, with couch, tables and doors.

Does it work better in a more open environment, like landscape photography? Any good tips from people who have been using this for longer time?

Geez, where did all that b*tthurt from Pentax fans come from?

And I quite liked this army green! I only wish Pentax had used this KS design for their mirrorless camera...
