pretty sharp wide open
neo_nights: I really liked that ginger girl :)
she`s a natural beauty :)
MDwebpro: Fun shot, but not uniquely creative or difficult to light, and certainly not worthy of a challenge win (as is the case with a lot of the winning photos on this blog).
I mean no offense to you, and I'm not trying to rain on anyone's parade, but I did work more creative than this in the Tabletop Photography class I had in college, 20 years ago.
an offense is an offence, no matter how much BS words you wrap it up into
and I would still like to see those pics of yours
creaDVty: Does anyone know if the D600 has micro-af adjust? That is a feature that is important to me. Thanks.
now that sounds better, much better :)
Pentax K, okay :P
OttoVonChriek: "As it turns out, my little tests just confirm things that were already published (if obscurely.)"
Well they certainly draw one possible conclusion. There are others.
A simple explanation for needing both newer cameras and lenses, is the following:
1) Nowadays PAF sensors are incorporated in large sensors with normal imaging capabilities. This provides additional information for exposure and focus algorithms.
2) Mirrorless cameras have shown how lenses need a continuous servo mechanism for high speed CAF foccusing.
3) A hybrid system would send a lens hurtling towards the position the AF sensor indicates, but continue to improve the lock using CAF data.
4) Canon have just entered into the mirrorless market and (Kudos to them) have chosen to use their standard lens mount rather than a new one. Therefore new lenses will be expected to incorporate the continuous servos essential for CAF.
I'm not sure how new all this is.Remember the ultra fast super precise E3 + 12-120mm?
"Canon have chosen to use their standard lens mount rather than a new one."really?
we all eagerly wait for your "worthy", "more creative" contributions to the challenges, mr. webpro :D
stanic042: based on photozone review, this lens has bad reputation among some pentaxians, but this could be to sample variationI like the results
looking at the samples of Canon 18-135..okay, sharp enough, but there is also massive CA in the corners (even @ f/11) that requires correction, after which this sharpness will be lower

win39: They look to me like a big ego taking revenge against a client who has already deposited the money. "I am so good, they will think they are art and I will be laughing. Ef the Olympics." Hopefully he will regret it in his old age.
Ashley Pomeroy: I can't wait for them to attach cameras to the athletes - it might slow 'em down a bit, but think about the possibilities. e.g. beach volleyball. What happens if two rival news agencies put robot cameras next to each other? Will they fight?

good one :D
