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)

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.

five5pho: unlock unlimited continuous shooting?
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's very heavy."

"Yes daddy."
"It's taking pictures."
"It is?"
"Yep. Point it at those birds."

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

Artak Hambarian: At the risk of acting as a party pooper, as well as overall liking very much the pictures and the nature captured, let me criticize a bit the time lapse movie and a few pictures: colors seem to me a bit too saturated, to the level of being not natural...

lol,, are you *that* desperate for attention?

Juck: Very nicely shot samples,,, but a 40 year old FL 55mm 1.2 will do the same thing better, for a lot less $

What are you babbling about? FL55 1.2 (all of them) is very glowy until about F2.... so hey,, zip it, lol.

On Samsung NX1 Review preview (1252 comments in total)
In reply to:

AlexisH: Here are the typos I found while reading through:

"that I realized *I* how many photos I had taken" - extra *I*

"but in every day use the 28 MP" - should use everyday

"the NX1 includes some significant compute power" - computing

"as soon as focus is achieved[,] a flurry of AF" - missing comma

"will appear over the the subject and [will] attempt to track it" - missing "will" in second part

"In fact, since being introduced[,] the NX1" - missing comma

"we can't get it to reliably work " - split infinitive, should be "to work reliably"

"of maintaining the connection[,] and conventional Wi-Fi for " - missing comma

"Oddly[,] the installation app" - same

You need a hobby mate.

Juck: They got IBIS tech,, the only thing of value in this old girl,, bailed,,, made a profit,, and still have enough shares for a seat on the board. Nice.

I never said it was identical,,, just that they got the tech from Olympus,, which they did. Fin.

Bravo,, this is great. Would love to have seen a version with just the biker's silhouette against the sky and no strobe (assuming there was enough light for a fast enough shutter speed).

In reply to:

AllOtherNamesTaken: According to Lenstip, the Tamron 15-30 is sharper, 1/3 the price, is stabilized, and has 5 times the warranty:

"When it comes to the duel with the Canon EF 16–35 mm f/2.8L USM II the Tamron wins hands down. The Canon was able to compete successfully only in the frame centre, on the edge of the frame it was definitely worse. Still it is possible to use filters with it, a quite important asset in this class of parameters.

To sum up the boasting of Tamron about the superior quality of their new lens proved to be true. The company managed to present a device which compares favourably with its rivals, is cheaper, has optical stabilization and a 5-year warranty period – it would be difficult not to recommend it. Independent producers have been proving for some time that they are no longer specializing in cheap equivalents of brand name lenses. The Tamron 15-30 mm is an excellent example of that strategy."

You give up 4mm, but you gain alot

Curious to see some more reviews down the road.

"You give up 4mm,"

LOL ,, 11mm is the whole point of this lens.

That slow zoom had better be a hell of a performer for $1000.
