In reply to:

HowaboutRAW: These aren't the strongest aeroplane pics.

That beta 747 is more interesting. Different series.

And number 1 in this series is basically an opening shot from the original version of the TV show "Hawaii 5-O", circa 1968.

lol,, you are a very small, petty man.

On Behind the Shot: Watery Grave article (91 comments in total)

Some of the critical comments here are petty, rude and embarrassing. Not one iota of constructive criticism. Get a life.

tko: I have never wanted a Leica, and indeed laughed at the people who own one. This latest incarnation is as ugly as ever. I wonder if Leica even knows there is such a thing a modern CAD software than can actually generate round corners and shapes that are easy to hold. This looks like a lens on a Crackerjack Box and indeed, they've managed to make it look ugly from every angle.

In today's world, the more you make of something, the cheaper it is and the fewer flaws it has. Low production isn't a good thing.

Damn boy, who took the jam out of your donut?

22codfish: For that money, I would prefer the Pentax 645Z

Damn straight,, this is a Versace Shirt,, $800 because of what it says on the label. Anyone who says a cheap DSLR can't do what this does for a whole lot less is delusional,, and sad. But hey, if you have the money and it makes you feel better about yourself,, then why not?

In reply to:

Battersea: The rose bushes have black spot, really. Could we get more people pictures? Thanks for these samples.

Don't take any sample pics of folk with acne, we'll never hear the end of it.

I think she means black-spot fungus on the roses.

On Canon announces 50mm F1.8 STM lens article (310 comments in total)
In reply to:

Jeff Keller: For those looking for MTF diagrams:
http://cweb.canon.jp/ef/lineup/standard/ef50-f18stm/spec.html

Odd,, MTF chart is exactly the same as the mk II.

With a different MFD, filter size etc. , I assumed the optics had been redone for the STM version.

On Canon issues product advisory for Rebel T6i/T6s article (141 comments in total)
In reply to:

Cjar: Canon should do an advisory about poor image quality I'm the SX60.

Wahhh wahhh wahhhh. You sure do whine a lot. If Canon sent every SX60 owner a 10LB solid gold Brick by way of compensation, you'd be the one here complaining that your brick it wasn't shiny enough.

Kevylloyd: I agree this seems like an already crowded area of the market, but it will make more sense when the Pentax version comes out for their future FF body.
It may also be better than the rest of the market, looks tough, I just hope it controls CA well.

>> it will make more sense when the Pentax version
>>comes out for their future FF body.

I just laughed so hard I peed a bit.

On Canon EOS 5DS R added to studio test scene comparison article (518 comments in total)
In reply to:

bmwzimmer: Hey DPreview,
In the test scenes, Why are you using a cheap $350 85mm f/1.8 lens from 1992 on the 5DSR which is originally designed for Film?????? Can't you use a slightly better lens from say...this Decade?? The Contrast, sharpness and CA are horrendous...

The Nikon D810 is mounted on the $1600 Nikkor 85mm 1.4G from 2010 which is one of Nikon's very best Prime Lens according to DXO mark and easily capable of resolving very High Megapixels...

RIDICULOUS GUYS, PLEASE USE A SLIGHTLY BETTER LENS PLEASE

Horrendous Contrast? CA & Sharpness? What are you babbling about?

At f5.6 this old lens handily out-resolves this sensor.

Mark Banas: Waiting for someone to do the math on the prize value vs. # of prior paid entries. ;)

That said, it's great to have any excuse to shoot more panos, and I see Peter Lik was one of the past judges, while Aaron Spence is one of the current ones. The standards have gone up!

Yeah, genius, I expect a company with the resources of Epson to run the competition at a loss. If they need a competition like this to generate revenue then they're closer to the abyss of bankruptcy than I thought.

It is also amazing how some people feel the need to say something, anything, no matter how fatuous, when they really have nothing to say. :D

On Yongnuo creates near-clone of Canon EF 35mm f/2 article (170 comments in total)
In reply to:

Juck: Can we assume it performs as well as their 50mm 1.8 clone? i.e. crap.

>>So - where did you get the
>>notion of crap perfomance from?

I bought a copy and tried it,, so from my own experience I formed an opinion,, the only opinion I care about. No, I didn't document the experience for the likes of you. Feel free to pi5s away your hard earned $ on the 35mm to learn the same lesson for yourself.

Photato: Isn't this lens design protected by patents and such?
If the IQ is the same, it would be a great buy.

'cos patent infringement is such a big deal to the Chinese.

As a canon user kudos to Nikon!

The D4s already has a huge RAW buffer,,, over 100 shots as I recall.

Biological_Viewfinder: I'm gonna give this camera to my little kid. I mean non-stop continuous shooting????? Even a 5yr old can get the shot now!!!

"Here kid, take this"

"It is?"
"Yep. Point it at those birds."

"WOW!!! THIS IS AMAZING!!!! YOU GOT THE SHOT!!!! LOOK AT THIS!!!! AMAZING!!!!"

"No problem. You're a real photographer now. Those mean know-it-alls who frequent DPR were right; all it takes is equipment."

Swing and a miss
