gianstam: Fortrunatly Nikon cares about its (pro) target group and not about DPR forum members

Speaking for mag's size the maximum double spread size of the 99,9% of mags we can buy, is 48 x 23,5 cm (some few), 46 x 29,7 cm (rare enough) and 21 x 28 cm (the more common). That means 24 Mp for the first case is enough, 18 and 15 Mp respectively for the rest. If the publishers cooperate with a serious press then they print their mags rasterized in what we call FM screening meaning that 250 dpi is more than enough resulting in a 20% reduction of Mp original pix size required.
To my experience I cannot see the reason for more than 4 "good" stops in the 99,99% of any instance and I fully agree with @rusk. The rest is just a show-off of manufacturers probably in their effort to camouflage any structural design problems of their products.

Shiranai: Now that I've tried it out I really don't know why they charged $150 for that anyways. After all it's just a bunch of filters that almost every smarthphone app offers for free. Although I really like the area correction feature, I get better results working only in lightroom/camera raw.
Almost all give your picture that filtered look. And thats something I'd rather avoid.

Dear all. I have seen hundreds of people working in pp using any s/w you may imagine to deliver the result they wanted ot they have been asked for. At least one out of 5 could destroy any machine no matter how ..fed this machine was. A significant majority usually produced something that a. they did not have in mind to deliver, b. it was completely out of the result that was asked.
The common cause for producing such a drama, was that they did not have the slightest idea of what light is. They have just, somehow, managed to get to know to press buttons and move sliders with the speed of light, usually assuming that they were in the right way to deliver, Universe know what they had in mind or understood what they were asked to deliver. Generally speaking, to my experience only 1 out of 20 can really deliver. The same or less stands for people who use mainly ps for creative purpose. It's waste of time arguing with those people, you can like them though as whatever...

Balu: I hope Google purchases Adobe and stops them from ripping off through their Cloud Software, fooling all CS6 customers.

Adobe has lost its mind some years ago anyway...

Nik's suite is an excellent tool, maybe the best overall for pp, combining thorough image processing (for the few who know what image is) with delicate creative capabilities. I don't know the sales of the company, but it seems to me that they were rather poor to Google's standards to give it for free. I guess there are few, even among pros, who can take the most out of these tools for getting the right result for what they really have in their minds as a desired result. I really don't get the point of free downloading. But from the other hand I do not have a clue for being somehow suspicious about it...

Seems extraordinary and it's typically overpriced because it has to be overpriced. If this lens will sell 5,000 pieces in, let's say 3 years, Leica will have a gross profit of, let's say again, $12M. Like it or not, this is Leica, take it or leave it...

With these and those GH4 reassures its position as one of digital photography era's benchmark as a product.

The top of bridge cams delivered very very nice some 10 years ago. In nowadays deliver better and better. I am not a Canon fan, but I have to admit that they have produced some astonishing products in the segment with a refinement and a touch that their FF flagships usually lack.
Anyway BSI sensor seems to be a knocker and I think that if it had to deliver 12-14 Mp the results would be far better and if it had to deliver 8 (which are enough for most users out there) some entry level cams along with their kit lenses would be in a seriously discomfort zone...

noflashplease: I don't see a single image that couldn't have been taken with a Ricoh GR or GRII?

If Carey shot with an S-2 the comments would sound like "...I don' t see the reason to leave behind my fav Canikon GFCX 2000" or whatever..

Ednaz: Good friend of mine, who shoots political events for one of the major agencies, uses a Leica Q alongside his Nikon gear. The Nikon gear is for the times when he's been banished to the press pen and needs a long lens, or when he's working in the crowd and wants some shallow DOF isolation. He uses the Q for when he can get in really close to the candidate and show the candidate interacting with the crowd. He's said that he is allowed to get closer with the Q than when he was pointing the big Nikon rig at the candidates. The small camera in front of his face seems to make security think he's just a fan (despite the credentials around his neck.)

Tell him to carry an FZ-1000 or a P-900 and an LX-100. They are cheeper, lighter, goon friendly and above all no one will tell the difference in most cases, even if they use it for Time cover.

Red dye for letter G contains led and rubber ring is not made from recyclable materials. Furthermore the lens designer emptied a bucket with water on a dog passing under his window... Yeah! We smashed them!!!

On article UPDATED: CP+ 2016: shooting the Pentax K-1 in Yokohama (377 comments in total)

Τhe pic with the 2 bikes if not anything else is showing more than clearly the quality of legacy Pentax glasses and this very touch of balance of contrast, sharpness and colour toning. Even bokeh is characterful... (F must be between 2.8 and 4).
