  • Thanks for posting, I really enjoyed looking through your photos. If you're a purist you may want to ignore some of the following. I like K3P19561a but I would clone out the flies on the further ...
  • I probably should not have mention a specific 'other' camera in my comment. The point is I particularly look for large DOF samples when reviewing lens performance. I have looked at many over the ...
  • Hope springs eternal with some people. I have been with Samsung since they started NX and their sensors have always been below the quality of Sony equivalents. The idea that a 28mp APS’c wasn’t ...
  • Scientific measurement is great but sometimes the visual experience does not tally because we misinterpret what the numbers actually mean. Photography has a visual outcome and so I generally ...
  • The comment was just to show I am aware that not everyone is concerned about such things. If I had taken into account every variation of of thought on this subject for every type of photographer, ...
  • I remember when you could win a comp with a nice photo and get to look at all the other entries. Now you have to advertise their product for them to as many people as possible to improve your ...
  • Although I wouldn’t want a lens which has trouble focussing, in fairness to the Sigma, I’ll offer some thoughts about the reviews on Pentax forum. In the Sigma review conclusion, they say about the ...

  • This comment is a bit of a cliché and also a put down. Art does not necessarily trump science, you can have a photographer who wants an artistic outcome and also strives for technical quality as ...
  • There are holes in their lens line up Lenses are often too expensive Lenses often get less than stellar reviews due to weakness in key areas The kit lens has not kept up with sensor improvements If ...
  • Very impressive. I haven't done much lately, it makes me want to get out and shoot.
  • Replied in Autumn
    Lovely photos of scenes and family.
  • Replied in nx 300 +16mm
    Beautiful, the only issue is the slight lean to the right.
  • I looked at 100% and that is very impressive, what lens? Nice photo, thanks for posting.
  • Look at your last jpg photo. On the left side it is soft at the bottom and ok at the top even though the distance to object is similar. On the right side it is the opposite is true, soft at the ...
  • oh yeah, I forgot about street portraits, When I do street it is scenic where the buildings etc are as important as the people so I'm still at f5.6+.
  • Thanks for the info. It does worry me that it is an f1.4 as this often means they concentrate on center quality wide open and not corner/edge quality at f5.6. I have found this with many lenses ...
  • Thanks Eric, I think if you are a corner geek like me this lens is probably best reserved for portrait and object photography rather than scenic shots. I don't think it is a big deal because I've ...
  • Hi viking79, thanks for the review. As you may remember I'm the everything sharp scenic guy and I have a couple of suggestions concerning the rooftops test shots, hope you don't mind. Firstly, the ...
  • Replied in 24mm
    Thanks to everyone for their replies. On reflection maybe I should have posted a less sarcastic initial comment, as some fans take it to heart. However others seem to understand where I am coming ...
