DenWil: I guess I'm lucky to be the only photographer in the world who does not have any use for time exposures in, lol, crop mode.
No, you are not alone!
Martyn McMad: Just had mine delivered today, not even out the box yet !

Jogger: Doesnt Zeiss have a lens with a similar focal length?
This one has AF!
JEROME NOLAS: How much was it new?
How much was it new?
This is off topic but very important-we need some major news/test/whatever...Thanx for great work guys, we are so spoiled, that's why we complain (bitch)sometimes...
I hope next model will have 1" sensor and fixed lens...
Yes, creative and inspiring!
Great IQ, the only loser in this 1" game is Nikon...
Ww all hope it's not another Df like camera...
sdh: I'm inclined to think a lot of people's expectations are way out of line here.Canon's offering a true ultrawide lens at a price point that halves the previous price floor.
I've used this lens a bit in recent weeks and am very pleased with its images. Stopped down (around F/8) my picutres look consistently sharp from center to corner, even at 10mm.
Maybe my expectations were low (this is admittedly my first UW), but at $300 the lens would have to be truly garbage to warrant complaints about IQ. This lens is far from garbage.
AFAIK UW's are harder to design than standard FL's. This lens reeks of value.
I'm very happy with my purchase.
I think Canon will have to sell it for $1000 to get people interested in this lens...I am not a Canon guy but this lens is more than good!!!
samfan: That's how it's done Nikon...
That's how it's done Sony!!!
ISO one million...???
I'd love to try it for a day or two with 23mm lens. That EVF looks really cool!
Almost as good as my GR...
joyclick: I wll wait for the FZ7000
I will freeze myself and set up the machine to wake me up in the year 3000...I think there will be no Panasonic...
Higuel: only in a country were people does not respect the animals could they allow a drone almost hitting an eagle in a National Park!
Makes me wonder if the publishers of the contest and also dPREVIEW think it is ok to applaud all the way to first place a picture taken at the expenses of the safety and well being of a wild animal?!?Where are the sacred rules of Animal Photography: "Thy shall not bother or threaten the animals!"???? :L
I am sure no animal was hurt or threaten during the shooting...
They really mastered the art of marketing and propaganda, if only they'd use all money in R&D instead .....
Dan Wagner: The photos are kind of 80's schticky. I think the idea is great -- if he had photos of himself in the suit walking in a crowd of people commuting to work -- but taken straightforward, or a photo at the breakfast table with his family, he in the suit with the family members dressed normally, or a wedding photo with him in the suit and the bride in gown and he's looking out a nearby window -- that kind of thing -- that to me would have taken the idea to a better place. Of the series, the shot on the playground shuttle was the one I liked best -- but he didn't need to have the shuttle touching ground -- just him sitting on the shuttle leaving the viewer to provide the story would have been enough. And before anyone goes ape on their keyboard believing there's something on the internet that needs immediate fixing -- this is just my humble opinion -- albeit one reflecting 30 years as a pro.
We all love a pro telling us what to like or not...the whole idea is being funny and creative. Remember being young and creative?Probably not, and being "30 years as a pro" means we should take you seriously? Have a nice day pro!
