clicstudio: I don't understand who would buy such a lens and produce an effect that can't be removed. Basically if u don't want it, you are stuck with it.. In photoshop you can do the same and have control over the effect. All of the lens baby line is the same. Photoshop can emulate all of their effects with a lot more precision and control.
Roland I meant u can use a regular fast lens that does bikes and then apply spiral effect in photoshop. Still, there are a lot of plug-ins that emulate focus and bokeh. Here is one. https://www.topazlabs.com/lenseffects
GRUBERND Photography as it is is not REAL. It's just an artistic representation of reality. For example, Bokeh is produced by glass, the human eye can't see it. Flash photography is not a representation of reality either. Limited dynamic range on cameras rely on external light sources to compensate of the lack of DR that a human eye can see. So, if u think about it. People have been Faking reality for a couple of centuries now. So Photoshop is just another tool to create art. Like a Flash or a fast lens with an "artistic" bokeh or not to mention B&W photos. Doesn't get any more unreal than that. Some photographers still can't use Photoshop. And the ones that use it too much get criticized by the "purists". Who cares how you get the photo done. It's just art and it's to be admired. The end result justifies the means.
You can create real bokeh with any fast lens. then apply a motion blur, or spiral blur in this case, and create the same exact thing this lens does with complete control and versatility.
They look married. HEHE. Good photo!

what a waste of effort. Nikon shouldn't even dare insult people with a useless feature just to claim they have 3Million ISO.Then again, according to the new DPR review the D5's Low ISO is narrow.I am glad I chose Canon 14 years ago and I am waiting for a 1DX Mark II to replace my amazing 1DX. :)
Is it me or the jpgs look better than the raws? Still both look pretty bad to me.
Visual yes. Story telling? Why? The original photos already tell something. Color correction and adding fx and elements doesn't change the fact that the original photos were not that great to begin with. Maybe they should concentrate on being better photographers and not spend hours fixing dull photos.
Indrek Ladva: Very good camera if using for the right purpose, but AF-ON and ISO buttons still so SMALL!! Especially ISO button. Why Canon? I need to handle my camera with gloves in winter. Really hoped progression in this aspect. I know I can adjust ISO to Set button, but I need Set button for image review cause original review button is on the wrong side for my.
as far as I read, u can customize any button to do almost anything.
kjeldsendk: Samples are up..
4K video "test"https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p67plTeMyD8
that 25600 sample looks awesome. So does the dancer at 6400. very impressive!
clicstudio: just ordered one from B&H bundled with a 64GB Cfast and Reader for just $5999. Can't wait for April!
Canon is not desperate. Probably Sandisk is subsidising the CFast because they need to make it mainstream like the CF was. The price of the body alone and the kit is the same. Besides who in their right mind is going to slow down this beast with a slow CF card? It's like having a sports car and using it in Eco mode or using regular gas. I am selling my 1DX with ALL my CF cards bundled. I don't want or need them anymore.

just preordered a bundle with 64GB CFast and reader from B&H for $5999.I hope DPR reviews this camera this time around. They failed to review the 1DX 3 years ago and also the Nikon D4.
I'm a huge Apple fan but this is just disgusting looking. Stuff from Mophie and others looks much better...
I've been using third party camera connection kits for over 3 years now on my iPhones and iPads. China even makes a CF adapter.Actually u can save $18 and buy a 7in1 lightning kit with 3xUSB, SD, MicroSD, and even Sony's MS on Amazon with full iOS9 support.I've had it for months now and it works flawlessly.Also, if u have a consumer camera with SD, u can get an EyeFi to do it all wirelessly. Even with a Pro camera, there are SD to CF adapters for the eye-fi, which work great. Cables are going to be a thing of the past soon. Specially a $30 cable that only does one thing.
Im looking to get an underwater camera and everybody seems to praise the olympus, even from last year's TG-3. Judging by the samples, the quality is terrible underwater. No definition and lots of noise and haze...Not impressed at all. Will have to look at something else...
