On Nikon Df Review preview (1616 comments in total)
In reply to:

marike6: It's hilarious that pretty much every camera with a shutter button gets an award on DPR. Some cameras like the X-E1 with its RAW conversion issues, subpar AF even get Gold Awards. The Nikon Df, perhaps because of a crowbarred comparison with the Fuji X cameras on day one ("retro done right") and the reviewer's fondness for the X cameras, gets zero, zip, nada. Lol. DPR was under no obligation to give the camera a good review, but giving it such a high score, but no award AT ALL was frankly a passive aggressive swipe at Nikon and Nikon users, not to mention kind of petty gesture.

I checked the Df out the other day at B&H and it's quite nice. It felt great in my hands, nice a bright VF, and it focused quickly and accurately. One thing is for sure, I'd trade my Fujifilm X-E1 and all my X lenses for the Df, in a second. Retro right or wrong, for me there is just no comparison between these two camera.

you sound like a guy who easily makes big shifts in gear so that could explain it

JimWongyyz: Seems those born after 1980's don't appreciate workmanship and good design.

Sometimes I wonder if they prefer Casio over Rolex. If they argue that a Casio has more functionality and more accurate than my Rolex, how should I answer.

tell them conspicuous consumption is important to you

seems like a nice -- albeit expensive -- toy for the fan boy or maybe this is Nikon's answer to the 5d classic.

Baracus: "Basically we have no plans to make Lightroom subscription-only at any point in the future."

Basically I have no plans to have brunch this Sunday. It doesn't mean I won't end up having brunch this Sunday.

I have a point for you.

On Canon EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM Preview preview (126 comments in total)
In reply to:

Michael Thomas Mitchell: As usual, a lot of people are missing the point of this lens. It's NOT a replacement for the 24-105 L. If you have that lens already, Canon's not trying to sell you this one. (Though I'm sure they wouldn't mind if you bought it anyway!) This is a COMPACT L lens designed to match the COMPACT size/weight of their new 6D. Nothing more.

This lens appears roughly the same size as the old 24-85 EF f3.5-4.5 lens, a great little lens if you have a good copy. Obviously, being an L, this lens offers weather sealing and presumably superior optics. And it has image stabilization, too. Is it really worth that much money, though? Especially considering that you can buy a used 24-85 for a hundred dollars or so? I'm tempted to say not. Nonetheless, hear it is. A nice looking, compact, feature-rich lens on par with Canon's new full-frame enthusiast DSLR. Bundling with the 6D, Canon is going to sell a ton of them.

this lens will smoke the old 24-85 and has macro and 4-stop IS. i'll bet it will also put the 24-105L to shame to, that is if you are interested in image quality.
