Jacques Cornell: Note to DPR - The slideshow stops at slide 8: everything after that just jumps to a page on the Sony Store. Bleah!
Doesn't happen to me with Chrome.
Henrik Herranen: They lost me at the line where they said:"Canon EF 24mm f/2.8 IS USM (equivalent to a 40mm f/2.8)"(followed by many other lines of similar, ahem, data).
They really should know better. 40/2.8 on FF is _NOT_ the equivalent of 24 f/2.8 on crop. If it was, both systems would have the same DoF and blurring capabilities, but they don't.
Different images = no equivalence.
Well, that didn't take long. First comment and we're already into the "equivalency" garbage.
Quite frankly, I don't know how Simon, Barney and the others at DPReview get up in the morning and go to work. I don't think I could do it if all I had to look forward to was the incessant whining of petulant "experts" who criticize and complain about each and every thing that they do. Imagine how long you'd last if your job was having to deal with some of the people that I see commenting on here.
fyngyrz: I own Viveza 2 and DFine. I went to the site, but there's no mention of previous owners qualifying for the entire suite. There's a 15 day free trial button, and a buy now button. Nothing else. As I'm not interested in a trial version (the implication is my current versions would be replaced with trials... ugh) or in buying... what to do?
Sent this to Google/Nik as well.
"If you've already purchased one or more Nik plug-ins in the past, then don't worry, we've got you covered. In fact: we're going to upgrade you to the entire Nik Collection by Google for free. Just keep an eye out for emailed instructions in the next few days."
I've been looking forward to this. Thank you.
