  • I do like the look of Zeiss’s Loxia line. Their Batis is so-so. The Milvus is growing on me. Their classic lenses (that look a bit like Leica rangefinder glass) is pretty classic. I hope for more...

  • I think that’s true of any lens. It’s only as good as it is. Taking a soft, de-centered lens off a 10MP camera body and attaching it o a 50MP camera body shouldn’t result in more detail per se,...

  • Exactly. If this year didn’t pique your interest, you might just not be that excited by cameras, period.

  • It definitely makes more sense than a backpack competing with photo editing software, or a set of high end cinema primes competing against a small camera electronic gimbal. 🧐😂

  • That’s one of the many reasons that camera isn’t taken seriously as a legitimate compact ILC. You flip that screen out—and now your camera is twice as wide, you look like a tourist and there’s no...

  • In the biggest year for camera releases that I can remember, ever, I’m not sure how the categories were divided so that the same cameras were competing against each other. Over and over. Or how a...

  • Oh for sure! If I can’t pop the lens into my retro, distressed leather man bag, or comfortably takes snaps while peddling on the back of my wife’s tandem bicycle, like, I don’t even get the point?...

  • I truly appreciate how this lens automatically weeds out the “convenience shooters” and Consumer Reports-types, where “lens weight” is an equally weighted category, as well as the shutterbug...

  • I’m sure this guy is being honest about not seeing any difference. Truth is, this is a rather niche/boutique lens, even if it’s lacking the extra $3,000 that Zeiss would immediately bake into the...

  • Not everyone here has glass wrists and a curving spine. Imagine, having to support a couple pounds in order to use a beautiful, fast lens?

    And is Zeiss drunk and “out of touch” too? Because they...

  • No kidding. I thought DPR had an “older” and potentially more “mature” user base? It feels like I’m stuck in a heated Witchcraft (whatever kids play) gameplay debate over the role of potions vs....

  • @sneakyracer Imagine what you could do with that kinda-wide f/2 zoom if the EOS R had IBIS? (I know... you need to freeze action in all your lowlight photos, so IBIS would be a complete waste.) For...

  • God forbid they choose ONE reference lens for all FF cameras (like an Otus 55mm ZF.2) and (gasp!) adapt it... And one reference lens for APS-C, and so on... You might end up with results that...

  • Yes. Canon’s lenses are the best. Nobody seems to notice anymore though. Their 50mm f/1.4, for example, despite being 25 years old, has 3,700 reviews on B&H with a near perfect 5-star rating. It...

  • It reminds me of how really awful quality was tolerated in American made automobiles (especially in the 80’s, 90’s and 00’s) because people wanted to “buy American.” It was well-intentioned, but...

  • I’ve never heard Canon “L glass” described as “optically near-perfect” before. Canon has quite a wide range. No disagreement there. But outside of their $1,700 35mm f/1.4 II I can’t think of...

  • I’m not sure how long you’ve been shooting crop and full frame digital, but for the last 12 years it’s been Canon who’s done nearly all of the “attacking.” (Not that I want to encourage this from...

  • Thats interesting to hear. I normally don’t like CA at all— and I do see it at wide apertures on the APS-C Sony 50mm f/1.8— but it doesn’t bother me too much. I don’t shoot a lot of pictures with ...
  • I don’t want to rehash a whole bunch of nons new, but as I read this I kept thinking to myself that the RX100 III sure *seems* like it’d have better image quality if cropped to a 3000mm equivalent,...

  • Did you change your profile picture to make this comment? XD
