but I think this is more of an extreme close-up lens than a real macro one.

great samples...the lens is little expensive for me. Legacy lenses gives me similar captures. I guess the appeal is that it's a 2 in 1 lens: portrait and macro in one package.

I like this. Brings back the whole manual experience minus the film hassles. I've been using a lot of manula lenses on DSLRs for three years now, Ai/s on EOS. I like this too as it does not in any way resemble a DSLR. I have had used more than a dozen DSLRs already. And it's FF! My 6D has 20MP too so I hope the low light performance will be about the same.

No speedbooster for this mount yet? I might get any of
the older models if there is one.

On Opinion: The myth of the upgrade path article (1454 comments in total)
In reply to:

wildkat2: As a Pentaxian with no FF body to choose, this is a very interesting article. I had no idea that Canon crippled their APS-C lenses. Im glad Pentax doesnt. Im even more glad that a significant number of Pentax "APS-C" lenses are actually quite capable Full Frame glass. Some day…..

Like others I very much enjoy the smaller size and greater reach of APS-C. When I was shooting film I lusted after telephoto lengths and never imagined I should afford a fast zoom that went to 300mm (70-200 f/2.8).

I disagree on the assessment of a 24-70 being "odd" - 35-105 is a range I shoot in all the time. It works great for both street and portrait.

Bottom line, there is no "bad" in the equation, just different. ASP-C is amazing. So is FF. At the end of the day, its the person holding the camera that matters most.

Greed was one big reason but so was the pursuit of the best AF that Minolta had the upper hand at that time.

Just like now, Canon is more focused on video functionality on a DSLR than on the high iso performance and dynamic range which Sony has now dominated.

Yet it will still be sometime before Canon will loose its leadership in sales. This because of Canon's marketing genius and the not so critical average user.

On Opinion: The myth of the upgrade path article (1454 comments in total)

mock solemn -the article's tone seems to suggest that it is saying something that will open your eyes. :) The content is pretty simple: If you are convinced that full frame is for you, sell your current stuff and start anew. For doing it step by step will only handicap you as a photographer.

of course we may or may not agree to this as some folk have the 2 systems simultaneously.

On Entry-Level Mirrorless Camera Roundup (2014) article (141 comments in total)

We keep hearing/reading "camera is just a tool" as if everybody hasn't read heard this line.

The thing is there are many tools now so which will you pick? Dpreview lays on the table the ones that they think are good ones. Then they pick one and hand it to you. Could they be wrong? Of course! They don't know you so they probably don't know what you need one for.

I have the X-M1. A friend sold it to me when he found out he can't live w/o an optical viewfinder. And though I;m fine with its IQ I often feel challenged for spontaneous shooting that I often wonder if I should swap it for a
cheap/used DSLR.

Some say mirror-less is best for street photography. Not for me. Not with this fuji, any way. By the time I get the compositin and the focusing right the subject has already changed his/her position. So I start all over again.

Though this fuji is fantastic for late afternoon strolls, I am not comfortable using it for indoor events.

In reply to:

Xentinus: A question for those,who think it is unfair voting gears they have never had;
How did you make your final decision before purchasing your gears,did you try ALL cameras and lenses?
We buy something over other things,because we think it is better than its rivals (considering value performance sometimes).

If so then some title change should be in order. "The Gadget for 2015" would be my suggestion. "The Gadget to buy/have in 2015," would also be more descriptive of this survey.

The great Sigma 18-35 Art lens is from 2013. It even won many citations from dpreview

On 'See Impossible': Canon counts down to... something. article (1656 comments in total)
In reply to:

samhain: Jokes and dreams aside...

"We see impossible"....
That has me thinking it has to do with af. Perhaps an af system that can focus (or 'see') in the dark.

That, or having something to do with the impossible project.

I'm going with some sort of night camera/focusing

"Because it probably has nothing to do with photography." I am betting on that.

It is not impossible to see a camera so it will not be a camera. We can see what we like from Canon so it will have nothing to do with us. It will be something we can't comprehend and best of all it is something we can not buy. Which is a good thing so we can keep our money.

On Canon EOS 7D Mark II First Impressions Review preview (2696 comments in total)

We need to have cameras to take pictures. Cameras need manufacturers to come into existence. Manufacturers must make lots of money to continue making cameras. To make tons of money they need marketing tools. Niche marketing is one such tool. Niche marketing is good for consumers as it caters to their budgets. If not for niche marketing I wouldn’t have been able to buy my first DSLR which was the 350D, which was what I could afford at that time. At that time the 20D was still expensive for my wallet. If not for niche marketing I wouldn’t have been able to buy my first FF DSLR which is the 6D, which is what I could afford at this time. The 5D series, whenever they are released, are always a little out of my reach. Niche marketing is good for manufacturers as it could lure photography enthusiasts into buying more than one model. The 7D mk2 is made for the sports and birders niche. If you are not in this group don’t buy it.
