Esign: Corner sharpness: all wide-angle lenses suffer from field curvature aberration. Refocus and/or stop down if you need sharp corners.
Party and wide-angle: you MUST shoot at waist level to keep the head-foot ratio reasonable. And no humans at far edges.

I like that tip cheers. was aware about edges never thought about the waist level shooting. Ta.

Pat Cullinan Jr: Hmmm... The Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8G ED AF-S sells for $1800. That's $1600 less than the Canon EF 11-24mm f/4L USM.

What should I do?

Pins and needles, needles and pins.

mjordan1: Please, please! No more reference to "fluorine" coatings. Fluorine is a gas at room temperature and very reactive. The coatings used are " fluoride" coatings e.g. calcium/magnesium fluoride, both of which are ionic compounds and not elements like fluorine.

Not everyone is concerned with Chemistry

Pretty handy review, since the Z4 model is supposedly launching next month.

prossi: Something very 'forced' about the poses.
Didn't do it for me.

Given the subject matter how would you have undertaken the task of such a shoot. Love to see superior results.

jukeboxjohnnie: Pathetic! This is because Samsung cant do a DSLR people want. My mirrorless system is only for casual shooting when I don't expect to be taken seriously and I'll never feel differently

Why would anyone think to take you seriously or otherwise.

JohnHoppy: I'm constantly surprised how photographers still moan about batteries. I have a GM1 and sure, after a couple of hundred it's running down, but I always have back-up batteries and many compatibles are really good as well as cheap. I got a pack of 2 for the GM1 at around £12 (USD19), no problem with them. Take up space? - Get outta here! I love the EM1 but it's the GM1 that goes everywhere with me.

they have to moan about something!!

For the marketing I think they missed a better line. You're wife likes good wood?
At least it's not made in MDF, chortle. Terrible dilemma for luxury yacht owner, standard rx100 mk3 or the retro mk2 timber. Damnit.

This will work on rx10? Or anyone recommend anything else for me. I don't like the pop up flash for anything other than a bit of daylight fill ( in which case which is the best
Mode to use flash on this camera)

In reply to:

PhotoKhan: I thought this was THE one but, hélas, it is not:

"Maximum Flight Time: Up to 18 minutes."

(...up to...)

Until this can be solved (...and it can't, with current weight-to-performance batteries technology...) this will only have limited appeal.

Interesting ... 18 mins, that's exactly the same run time as my fantastic twin cyclone Dyson (Sir to you). Any cooincidence??!!

Terrific travelogue and great photos at all sorts of the time of day, you worked very hard to pull this off. It takes a huge effort to cycle like this and take the time outs to pull of exceptional photographs like this but the result is spectacular. Bike riding gives you such great access and to reach places that are just a pain to get to on foot and you can can scour the terrain for the best vantage point for the shot. Its all good, and something all of us I'm sure would love to do! I assume there could be a book out of it, to render this a 'professional' mission along the lines of National Geographic sort of thing.
