On article Throwback Thursday: when studio lenses retire (202 comments in total)
In reply to:

AKH: Nice article. Thanks.
I found the lens a little too unsharp wide open on my D810 and bought the 50 mm f/1.8 G instead, which think is very nice. But in a way I regret selling my old D-lenses (24 mm, 35 mm and 50 mm) as they are quite nice besides being very small and light.

Silly article, innacurate feedback.

DXO ranks this lens highest of any Nikkor 50mm on the 800/810.

On your 810, the 50/1.4 AF-D scores 37. The newer G scores 35, and the 1.8 scores only 33.

I use this as my primary lens.

Couscousdelight: The best sensor coupled to the worst image compression.
This is stupid, this is Sony.

Agreed that the compression isn't great. I personally shoot uncompressed on my D800. I own a NEX and I'm constantly taken aback by artifacts in brightly lit ISO 100 images. It's fine for most stuff, but I'd still rather a camera like this new Sony have an uncompressed RAW option.

As someone who buys each new version of LR, this strikes me as a decent deal, presuming it won't get much more expensive. At about $120 for a year, it's less than the cost of the new license accompanying each major revision.

Bill Rees: Queue the endless complaining about the subscription model.

LR5 isn't subscription.

Howard Stern should be mentioned. He actually does lots of ad and cover work.

PKR-36...

I showed this to a friend who was a staff photographer at Newsweek for a few decades. He started chuckling and showed me the NYC Taxicab photo.

He explained that all the Kodachrome had a serial number starting with "PKR-36".

How cool is it that he found that cab with that license plate?

Does anyone but me remember the Kodak DCS 760m? It was from 2002, a 6Mpxl -monochrome- Nikon mount DSLR.

Some of the best samples done by a fine art photographer can be found at

He also has beta samples for the Leica Monochrome. I guess they noticed his work...

On article Danaher to buy color specialist X-Rite (13 comments in total)

If your company makes money, Danaher leaves you alone. Very much alone which is nice.

They also own Leica Microsystems. No one has complained about that arrangement that I'm aware of.

On article dpreview.com gets mobile (110 comments in total)

No kudos from me.

You broke the way Android handsets request the desktop version of sites. Please fix this so switching isn't limited only to your desktop hyperlink.

Also, in this day and age it is unfathomable why this forum isn't on Tapatalk.

FWIW, this mobile site is nearly too late. My 4.6" 1280x720 handset does a fantastic job with the full site and so will countless emerging "next gen" handsets.

In reply to:

luben solev: What i find interesting is that DPReview is happy to cover these extremely expensive video cameras that happen to also do stills, but don't cover similarly priced medium format dslrs that are all about photography.

To the first poster, you're looking at heavily compressed garbage if you are consuming it on Youtube or Vimeo. Chances are you've seen plenty of great RED footage. Most of the feature movies we see in cinemas were shot on RED and a good portion of HD television content. It gets -no better-.

As for the other comments about "is this relevant", I'd say absolutely. If this sucks customers away from the 5D II for video, then Canon will have no choice but to make the cameras at our price level like the next 5D II all the more compelling.

The noise in this image is shocking. ISO 200 in broad daylight. What a shame Sony got so ambitious with pixel count.

Look at the aluminum umbrella supports on the closest umbrella @ 100%. You can see significant stair-stepping. I presume this is due to the lack of the filter?
