Sirandar: Please Please put what mounts are supported right in the Title Header so I don't have to read about lenses I care nothing about.

Sigma would have to make this lens for 100$ before I would consider switching from m4/3.

continue from last post....

On technical side, online Publications are striving for google indexing. How they tag and title have huge impact on google news and search placement. Majority of their traffic are coming from Google, not just returning readers. Having a long title would potential lose hundreds thousands of inbounce traffics, and people in the SEO biz knows not to mess with google or u may not get back in again.

Actually DPR already have Tags in place, it's at very bottom of article. They didn't tag platform which is understood, people has basic knowledges of cameras do know what they are reading into. You obviously are the exception.

AS a person used to work on publications and SEO, having long article title is a NO NO for many reasons

1) To follow Google SEO compliant, article title must be within lengths of 60 characters, tho the new standard has increased to 70. The title length will has great impact on search engine placement and readability.

2) Long title is messing in article listing and taking up unnecessary space. In a high traffic site, space is cash cow.

3) Long title will have impact on database search, why add redundant texts to a title where a platform already have proper tags and category implement?

Peiasdf: I am going to guess NYTimes have updated its article because DPReview's article is a baseless clickbait.

The first two paragraphs from NYTimes:
WASHINGTON — Intelligence showing that the Islamic State is developing a bomb hidden in portable electronics spurred the United States and Britain on Tuesday to bar passengers from airports in a total of 10 Muslim-majority countries from carrying laptop computers, iPads and other devices larger than a cellphone aboard direct inbound flights, two senior American counterterrorism officials said.

Two additional American officials said the explosives were designed to be hidden in laptop batteries. All four spoke on condition of anonymity as they were not authorized to publicly discuss the sensitive information.

When i read about the Al-what-fccuk has invented laptop sized c5 and US is banning those items from carry in but they don't mind you checking in..... What? Well then, that sounds like a safe bet not to get your plane detonated in the mid air.

iainlea: Was looking at a US/Canada/Mexico/Hawaii shooting trip this year but due to the constant changes and new requirements with flying we will now plan a number of extended roadtrips here in europe and take a look at island hopping in asia.

The US has great locations and beautiful landscape but so do other countries. At the end of the day we will spend our income in a more welcoming environment.

I am pretty sure other countries tourist departments will try and capitalize on this situation and that can only be good for people looking for good deals.

if you want landscape, Iceland would be a better place to be.

ottonis: Apple lowering prices of the new iPad means that iPad sales must be in serious trouble.
Moreover, why are they using a CPU from yesteryear?

No, they are not useless and not meant for productivity or laptop replacement either. I still use it daily for the sole purposes of TV program on the move, reading and many others app that bigger screen size would works better than my smaller iphone 7+. For works, i need one for app development and web browsers testing.

On business side, they are now widely use on enterprise and retail store, even mom and pop stores are using tablets to interact with customers. They are in fact, very useful and cheaper iPad would be a great candidate in this application for those prefer iOS.

But Tablets are luxury, third after a smart phone and laptop. People that can afford is not likely to update that frequent. Hence, it's not selling like a phone and cost too much for low income consumer.

Mine is an aging Air model with cracked screen and looking forward to the next Pro model roll out.

A better suggestion would be tagging the posts according, putting everything in post title is thing in the past. If OP only wants to read m4/3 news, she/he can filtering news by the tag. This message is for op, not for DPR.

Franky, most people in the photography, know what they are reading into by looking at the title.

Leonp: I think fast lenses are overrated. First, since digital went over 1000 ISO with great quality, there's no need for lenses be fast anymore. Remember the days when you just had to shoot with 100 ISO?
Then shallow depth of field. Yes, big lenses are the only way to achive this properly. But: shallow DOF is in fact only one of the many many things you can do to make a great photo. If you really need it, great and so be it. But I think it overrated for most people to spend half their budget on lenses being fast and carry around double the weight all the time. And do you use it or dit you try once and conclude that accurate (portrait) focussing was hardly possible not because of your equipment but because of the shallow DOF itself?

I would like to see more F4 series lenses of great quality.

@leonp who the hell want to buy a 135 f4 prime lens when they are ton of 70-200 F2.8- F4. to choose from? Many of them are stellar in sharpness and optically sound already. It's not about the "fast" lens, it's the critically sharp wide open shadow DOF people are looking for. At 1.8 and if it delivers optically, you will see more on similar attempts from counterparts.

LiangMing: Well, if the Camera manufacturers are smart enough, they should make their Camera a Smart Camera, just like the phone to become Smart Phone, and TV to become Smart TV.

It is no that hard to use the Camera back screen to play a couple Apps, like Instagram or YouTube, so your content from the Camera is linked to the Internet instantly.

It sounds simple until you get to newbie whinning and complain about battery deficiency. Remember. Dslr theses days are packed with gps, wifi, but one opted to turn it off so they can conserve the battery. Now you want apps, wifi, gps operate at full strength. Say that you do, it's still so damn inconvenient compare to a light weight smart phone that can do more. they aren't interested in great photos for memory, they just want in instant feedback on how many likes they receive, where they are and what they are having,

DPR should do a post on their average reader ages. I bet if they have not adopted mobile phones segment, it's all old and dead meats here... much like DSLR is going.

keepreal: The results look good but the size, weight and high price are off-putting, considering you will also need to pay for a caddy or daily exercises in the gym.

R you like 90 and handicap? Get a cellphone!

and for the price... well, you are the only know seems to know what it cost to be so expensive.

Juck: Definitely an interesting lens,,, some of the samples look to be front-focused a bit,, maybe it's just me, maybe it's a copy-specific thing. I'll probably still buy this.

How do you judge an image front/back focused without actually know the focus point? Just curious...

Link | Posted on Mar 1, 2017 at 05:00 UTC

Damit! That's Impressive!
Well done Sigma but mum the price huh.

Daniel L: Well, may be it's time to let go of my samyang 14mm 2.8... all comes down to price now.

Yea. Canon 14mm F2.8 is pretty bad compare to Samyang.

I once walked a full day of Tokyo with Samyang, it was a lot of fun shooting with manual lens. Doesn't bother me at all if the new Art doesn't hit 10/10 mark in AF department, it's an ultra wide angle after all.
