It means the CS6 that I own will be my last copy of Photoshop that I will own. I am not buying into Adobe's attempt at extortion. What?? Aren't they happy with the high price they are charging for their programs. They must be feeling the pinch from the competition companies that are putting out great programs at a reasonable price. Mark it down somewhere and remember I said this, "when the fuss dies down and people are buying into their scam, Adobe will stop supporting CS6". Adobe, put your subscriptions where the Sun doesn't shine.
aaron_kelley: The photographer rude? Some of your comments are pretty rude. Street photography is done without permission daily and it's okay. But, as soon as someone gets strobes out, it's automatically wrong? No. I do drive by video all the time of normal every day people on college campuses and in the city without "permission". If you're in the public, expect yourself to be public; especially in today's generation with photo sharing websites.
Okay by whose low standards, yours? Being in the "public" doesn't give you the right to invade someones privacy. People like you can't make it in the real world of photography, you think art is a lousy picture of a person walking down a dirty street. Do you hide your cameras in bathrooms too? Stick your camera in my face and you'll be wearing it where the sun doesn't shine.
Denis James Evans: Keep dxo's biases out of the camera reviews. If dxo has any influence in the camera reviews, I will never visit this site again. Dxo is a blight on the industry!
Yep it is true
shahid11235: This is a very welcome decision. Thanks DPreview!
I agree 100%
HarrieD7000: Great. I hoop we soon have lots of tests, so we can see what to expect of a new lens.
I agree 100%. It will give us just one more way to judge a lens before buying.
Richard Murdey: "I pity the fool who needs measurements to tell them which lens to buy." - Mr. T.
A person would be a fool NOT knowing how a lens performs before buying. If you don't see reviews how would you know it's quality until you try it. I can tell in the first images if a lens is a dog, but I'm certainly not going to buy a lens that all the reviews show not to be good. When a new lens come on the market and you bought it. Would you be a fool if it wasn't good and you didn't look at any of the "measurement". I'd say that's being a fool.
emircruz: yeah, the same dxo that cant release the e-m5 sensor results because... well your guess is as good as mine.
As your user name implies, "novice". Bought?? well known by who you? Maybe you can post some real evidence to prove your slanderous claim they are bought. What did they do, give one of your loved lens a low rating.
Denis James Evans: Dxo is hopelessly pro Nikon. You cannot trust anything they review.
JohanCruyff: I tend to trust the reviews I read on Photozone, The Digital Picture and the ones from Amazon non professional users more than DXO's ones, at least with refernce to Lenses reviews.
Maybe the "merger" between DPReview and DXO will lead to something more useful for customers. We'll see.
I always found that my lens performed very closely to what DXO reviews have shown. I'm certainly not going to give credibility to an Amazon user that wouldn't know a good image if it hit him in the head.
I have found the DXO reviews to be pretty close to how my lens perform. Many times I hear people say " in real life photos" the lens is fine. Bull. It's fine if you're happy with snapshot quality images. The DXO tests along with SLRgear tests have shown me the weak points of even my best lens. I stay away from those areas for better images. Some people just don't want to hear that their lens is a dog. I glad to hear dpreview is teaming with DXO, and I'm looking forward to the first tests. Ed
yabokkie: not sure Sony is able to make any good lenses. using of a brand of someone else who hasn't made any good lenses for dozens of years since lost market to Japanese makers in 1960-1970s is a proof that the quality of these lenses are low.
Zeiss brand = low quality. G lenses, not sure.
Zeiss brand = low quality. You're either from another planet or a troll, or both. Either way, at least you gave me my laugh for today. Zeiss...., low quality.....LOL LOL
I really hope that Sony will make a high quality zoom, in the range of the kit lens. I would be willing to pay the price for a top lens. For me, a NEX-7, with a 16-55mm quality lens that is about the size of the present kit lens, would be the ideal walk around setup for my needs.
tritx: just look at the shadow under the big metal tube at the front ot this picture. 24 MP, and JPG by Sony. Great.
In looking at the images taken with the 18-55mm kit lens, they all appear soft. This review give the NEX-7 a high gold rating, yet it gives the lens a not so great rating. Actually the kit lens is rather poor to pair up with an otherwise great camera. The rating for the NEX-7 would be so high it the testing was done only with the kit lens. I will hold off buying this camera until Sony has more options available for this camera. Too bad, because I really like the NEX-7
