  • Created discussions Report on manual lenses
    DPReview was once a go-to portal for information on photographic tools.  What's happened? Please someone review manual lenses for Nikon, I mean, really test and review.  They are well built, have ...
  • They continue to omit Nikon's manual focus lenses, 24/2.8 and 28/2.8.

  • Created discussions DP Review Contents
    Dear DPR, I would certainly like to see more reviews and less off topic articles.  As a start, there have been no reviews of Nikon's top manual focus lenses with their (Nikon's) new hi-res cameras. ...
  • "the viewfinder is really good,"

    Truly? I see no indication whatsoever of a viewfinder. Where is it?

  • This site has degenerated. It is no longer what its name implies, digital photo review. Maybe, instead of this filler material, the reviewers could test lenses. For instance, how do the Nikon...

  • Actually, if you're going to refer to D800 as 35mm, you certainly can't refer to digital Hassies as medium format. They're not. The real smallest medium format is 645, the negative size, not the...

  • Also made Kaloflex twin-lens in 50's or 60's. I had one. Good quality.

  • To all you people talking about pp or post processing: first you have to process. The word you're looking for is "processing."

  • Commented on TIME's top photos of the year article

    Kari, what are you talking about? The photographer is worse than...? Worse in what way? Aren't you on this forum because you're a photographer?

  • Commented on Nikon Df preview

    To answer the title question, no, they didn't get it right. They could have left off the front/rear control dials, rear screen, maybe even autofocus. The camera should be smaller, more like FM. ...

  • Commented on Fujifilm X-E2 Preview preview

    I think dpr and all other review sites should refuse to review any more cameras that don't have optical viewfinders. Just consider them non entities. Maybe the camera companies will get the hint.

  • What am I missing here? Digital crop-smaller sensor, less pixels, doesn't show in external viewfinder, unless you constantly change finders. What's the purpose? Isn't it better to crop when ready...

  • Commented on Fujifilm X-M1 Review preview

    The IQ from my x100s is as good as it gets. Where have you seen prints from these cameras? I can make a 40x60 that is sharp all the way to the corners.
    Contrast? That comes during processing.

  • Just because you can doesn't mean you should. The greatest power comes from not doing something just because you can.

    Creativity is the willingness to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to...
