Photoman: I wonder if these adapters will be any good. I thought you only put adapter lens on video cameras? I would prefer a FE 21mm with no attachments on it.

a friend uses nex 5n and the 16/2,8 plus adapter to 12 mm, and I was really surprised how excellent the pics were

On Samsung NX1 First Impressions Review preview (1437 comments in total)
In reply to:

Sdaniella: Correction: WYSIWYG Exposure Simulation (Full M/ISO or AE modes) Live (Pre)View
aka: ES-LV, or ExpSim LV, or Final Image (Exposure Simulation) Live Preview (FIES-LV)

not:

DPR's:
WYSIWYG ... "compensation"
is really a fancy word for MANUAL compensation for AE modes to overcome "dumb camera auto exposure modes assume EV=0 till operator chooses better/different"

instead of the disclaimer, why not just list whether it has:
1) ES-LV (WYSIWYG): Full-Time, or only part-time.
2) ExpSim/FIES LV (WYSIWYG): Full-Time, or only part-time
3) AutoGain-LV (Full-Time Framing+Focus Preview Only; minus WYSIWYG ES-LV or ExpSim LV)

its been 15+ years, DPR, it's about time one lists LV capability TYPES, not just lump them all as, LV=Yes/No?

btw:
Non-LV dcams/film cams:
1) Optical Live Preview (Full-Time Framing+Focus Preview Only (good light only); minus Autogain LV (3) ... never mind minus ExpSim LV (1)&(2)

gooo sdye :)

In reply to:

GodSpeaks: Capture One Pro is far superior to lightroom. Plus you are not forced to 'catalog' everything.

On Canon to move camera production back to Japan article (108 comments in total)
In reply to:

Mike FL: One thing is for sure, you pay less for "Made in China". Such as:

"Yongnuo clones Canon’s ‘nifty fifty’ down to every last detail at half the price (@$69)" per IR.

"the 'build quality seems to be on par with Canon’s 50mm 1.8 II; maybe a *tad bit better*, but not by much.'"

http://www.imaging-resource.com/news/2014/12/18/yongnuo-clones-canons-nifty-fifty-down-to-every-last-detail-at-half-the-pri

BTW:
Actually, you can get it for not $69, but $40 with free shipping.

As an reference a "Leica Lens Coffee Cup Mug" is $45, and " Made in Germany. Never used, only removed from box for this photo". Per seller, Oh yes. " Made in Germany."

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Leica-Lens-Coffee-Cup-Mug-Summarit-S-70-/181637130719?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2a4a6aa9df

have you ever used anything made in Germany?

On Pentax launches K-S1 Sweets Collection article (231 comments in total)
In reply to:

Hugo808: Heh, heh, good old Pentax. They've always been a revolutionary company that pushes boundaries and comes up with mold-breaking new ideas.

In the 60's they developed open-aperture metering and reflex viewfinders but I suspect their glory days are behind them if their next big thing is pretty colours!

Mind you, maybe my old Spotmatic might have sold more if it had come in raspberry ripple flavour, who knows for sure?

yes, no innovation at all, just a on-demand AA filter or on-sensor astro tracking, for example

On Just Breathe: Portraits of adults with Cystic Fibrosis article (13 comments in total)
In reply to:

papa natas: Just a little remark here, please. And I'm quoting your text:
"..Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is the most common fatal genetic disease affecting children and young adults."
The disease is not Universally commonly fatal.
Cystic Fibrosis is the most common lethal generic disease among...
CAUCASIANS. (OMS)

but isn`t sickle cell disease a kind of protection, against malaria, spread thanks to selection pressure?

In reply to:

Frank_BR: Nano coating? Oh, no, another manufacturer who tries to tell other version of the same old fairy tale about lens coating!

It all started in the '60s when Asahi Pentax created a hype with SMC (Super Multi-Coating). Since then, the world has had to hear all this blah blah blah about the magical qualities of the various types of coating used in photographic lenses.

Some acronyms created since then by the fertile imagination of the lens manufacturers:
SMC Pentax
EBC: Fuji
T*: Zeiss
MC: Pentacon, CZJ, Tokina
SSC: Canon
C: Nikon
N: Nikon
SHMC: Hoya
UMC: Samyang
VMC: Vivitar

you are forgetting HD and Aero bright coating from Pentax as well :)

On Pentax K-3 preview (959 comments in total)
In reply to:

bilmenot: I don't agree Pentax is "doomed", it is a small company not only produce cameras but also a line of optics, binocular...etc., and it has root on photography like the "big two", it understands what a real camera should be like, Pentax did not bought things up from others and put it's stamp on it ! Pentax made very nice camera with specs exceeded other made at the same price range. What I worry about the K3 is the sensor shift motion blur thing, I dropped my K5 once onto hard concrete from couple feet up, and the SR is half dead and shift out of place, I spent $400 to replace it, this sounds silly but I don't want to invest on the MKII for just minor improvement. That was an extreme test on a camera, but I worry the sensor SR mechanism will eventually shift out of place after some normal bumps, sensor at that high resolution requires absolute precise alignment. And btw I hated the tilted LCD, it will make the camera looks cheap, and you won't see that on the flag ships of the big two.

bilmenot, I guss you were unlucky, my K5 has survived really hard fall on stones, numerous smaller falls and I even took a 0,5 m dive with it, without any issues
