rondhamalam: euw.. the bokeh.. yuck

yep, I got some Kremlin swirlers too, most m42's behave a bit this way but a bit more sharper at the center and have more soothing colors...

In reply to: So much more detail in the Canon image; Canon is the winner here at high ISO.

Now, something is wrong here in a BIG way cuz the Canon sensor is supposed to be the whipping boy at DxO. How come it can out punch the Sony celebrities here?

On Fujifilm announces 1.4x teleconverter for X100/X100S article (130 comments in total)
In reply to:

Edmond Stuart: I still insist that a TLC which extends the focal length by only a factor of 1.4 makes little sense. You get (almost) the same result by cropping the picture with a factor of 1.4. Admittedly, you will lose some resolution, but any TLC will degrade the performance as well. To me, only a TLC which approaches the focal length of a portrait lens (X2.0 or so) is worth the money.
But even then it makes little sense as it runs counter to the philosophy of the X100(S), which was intended as *compact* camera.
I agree with NomadMark: "Buy an ILC and be done with it".

70mm would have been a little more useful cuz then you will have a 35-70 FF equivalent at f/2.0

brycesteiner: "The Micro Four Thirds system, originally developed by Olympus and Panasonic, now lists Carl Zeiss, Astro Design, SVS-Vistek, Kenko Tokina, Cosina, Schneider-Kreuznach, JK Imaging, Tamron, View Plus, Photron and Blackmagic Designs as members. Sigma also makes lenses for the system."

I thought Kodak is a part of the consortium too. They have their own m4/3 out now too.

JK Imaging is Kodak. JK Imaging owns Kodak now. At least for now.

On DPReview Gear of the Year: Canon Rebel SL1 / EOS 100D article (270 comments in total)

If money comes my way next year this will the camera I will buy but the foremost reason for doing so is because I'm into the Canon system.

The article was honest and well thought of.

And yes, the title "gear of the year" must be replaced. For although it was well explained in the article it can still mislead to mean a universal objective assessment.

Somebody might say -"hey, man, my 100D was dpreview's Gear of The Year" when what the article claimed was merely that it was Shawn Barnett's fave camera for 2013.

And having a possessive pronoun or an attribution would have minimized this passionate confusion. If the title just said Shawn Barnett's top pick or Shawn Barnett's choice or Our Editors' picks for Gear of The Year.

"Editors' pick," an abused term, would still have been more apt.

Dpreview simply picked a bad title (one that needs explaining) and that is all. Bad, like a joke that nobody laughs at until it is explained.

On Nikon video hints at long-desired 'digital FM' article (554 comments in total)

I have Canon bodies (30D, 5D mk2, 6D) which I pair w/ AIS lenses (24mm f/2.8, 28mm f/2.8, 35mm f/2.8, 50mm f/1.4, 50mm f/1.2, 105mm f/2.5 and 200mm f/4).

Aside from acquiring good images the other pleasure I get from these combos is from the challenge of manual focusing.

I hope this Nikon "pure photography" move will be geared towards manual focusing.

On Just posted: Canon EOS 100D / Rebel SL1 Review article (366 comments in total)

It is easy to assail Canon as a system: How it's behind in specs and innovation; how it fumbles with its good intentions.

But once you get hold of one its products you'll find out that it easily grows on you. I also have this feeling with Olympus cameras. Maybe this has something to do with the interface.

This is a subjective observation, for sure. But I am sure I am not alone in this.

The reviewers didn't think highly of the 6D, picturing it a limping runner in the marathon with its contemporaries. Yet it is the best camera I have ever owned. I have a 5Dmk2 and a 7D, gold medalists of sorts in their time.

The same can be said with the 100D. It will be bashed black and blue by those who don't own one and by those who have no intention of owning one. But those who already have it will most likely be very happy taking pictures and video with it.

My favorite review site now is LessRentals as the site provides sharp succinct informative and witty reviews.

Direct link | Posted on Jul 16, 2013 at 02:02 UTC as 103rd comment | 2 replies

This is what I've noticed. In a one star to five stars consumer review site the negative reviews often bring the product's rating down. But upon reading the negative reviews you will find that it is often a rant against the company's poor after service for the lemon that they bought. So it becomes less a review of the product as it is of the company's QC and customer service.

Around five years ago (I've stopped reading them now as I often only read them when I'm in a buying mode) the usual targets of this rants were the Panasonic p&s and the Sigma lenses. Again they were attacked not for their capabilities but because of their company's lousy QC and poor customer service.
