On article Film Fridays: Kodak Portra 800 review (118 comments in total)
In reply to:

dmanthree: Once you shoot the film and process it, then what? Are there any labs left who actually do chemical printing? If you're going to shoot film and then scan the negs, well, what's the point? I loved shooting Potra, but that was a long time ago. Things have changed, and even m4/3 can blow Portra out of the water.

I don't think you sitting a roll of film would make a point in changing my fun.

cdembrey: Charities are profitable. They don't need charity for themselves.

From the Tampa Bay Times: "According to a yearlong investigation by the Tampa Bay Times and the Center for Investigative Reporting, there are about 6,000 charities that hire for-profit corporations to raise money and end up spending far too little on actual charitable activities. The nation’s 50 worst charities, as ranked by the Times and CIR, have paid corporate solicitors nearly $1 billion over 10 years.'
And ...
"The Kids Wish Network, tied for lowest-rated on the Times and CIR’s list, has paid nearly $110 million to corporate solicitors and another $4.8 million to its founder and his own consulting firms. Only about $3.2 million of the total $127.8 billion raised by the charity has gone toward helping the dying children for whom it supposedly exists."

Whelp, that's it everyone, forget charities and volunteering- this guy read an article on the worst charities, so they're all out to make money for themselves, no need to help your communities here on out, and forget children's cancer groups, they can take their own selfies. /s

In reply to:

Pphotosweden: Just wondered how the preview would have sounded like if someone smacked a Canon sticker on the camera instead...
Just thought of the things that Canon got a whole lot of critique for on the M-cameras for things that DP review now only refers back to the price point. The price point that the M cameras hade way below in 2017...

"this review would be totally different if it had a Casio sticker on it"

Xerien: Everyone - Sony got ibis from Olympus
Not everyone - Sony got the ibis from Konica Minolta
Minolta was using ibis on larger sensors before Olympus, people should not forget the Minolta heritage in Sony camera division.

Lots of companies have IBIS, Olympus made 5 axis IBIS with a floating sensor, they were the only ones, until Sony came out with one exactly like it.

panther fan: 699?

Sure

That's a whole lot of back and forth on a guess as to how the Panasonic-Leica partnership may or may not work internally.

Bhima78: $700 is too close in price to the far superior Oly 25mm f1.2. I owned the original Panny 25mm f1.4 and it felt cheap, made a racket due to rattlesnaking but took nice pictures. Sold it and got the 15mm f1.7 which is a better lens all around in terms of craftsmanship.

I used to own the 25mm f1.2, it's an amazing lens, but as other have said, it's a totally different beast, much heavier and larger. It's more than just "a stop more" as far quality goes with the 25mm f1.2 vs the Panasonic.

mister_roboto: HEH- Who doesn't want to put Geostar tires on a BMW?!

I didn't mention: I also use m mount lenses in my mirrorless camera, with built in macro adapter, in addition to the Bessa. I have the 50mm and 28mm, and both are really fun to use. I had the 35mm, but it was "meh" to me. I really hope they come out with a 90mm next. I have voightlander lenses as well that are great, but the 7artisan lenses are still more affordable.

@lngo70 I have no idea what you are going on about.

Tom_A: I find it cool, but surely when you buy a leica, you first and foremost want to use Leica lenses, I would think?

Heh- I own no Leica lenses. I have a variety of Voightlander, Canon, Former Soviet, and 7Artisan M-Mounts. The Voightlander 35mm f1.4 is one of my favorite lenses.

Yeah, for some. I suppose it depends on if they bat an eye when buying a $3.5-7k USD rangefinder body, then they'll probably want a $1-12k lens. There's quite a few people who still use film era m-mount cameras (like me, I love my Bessa R2A), or buy older generation digital leicas, and I think these lenses are geared more to those people, or people who simply want to play. The Leica 75mm f1.25 is $12,800 USD, if this lens is just 80% as good, that's a pretty good savings. The leica lens hood for for the 28mm f1.4 is $300... that's around 70% the cost of the 7Artisans lens. Leica's are for a specific subset of people, heh that I'm not part of.

Sirandar: I can see the wires on the hydro poles in the background at the horizon with the Sigma but not the Pana ..... Sigma looks sharper to me

he means the actual physical size of the lens, not the focal length.

In reply to:

Clint009: With that 30mm Sigma, what would be the difference on using on SonyA6000 vs Olympus?

Some other test (not with DP Preview) are saying the series 19mm 30mm 60mm are better on E mount APS-C (Sony A6000) !!!

The FOV is wider on a Sony, FOV of 45mm (Sony) vs 60mm (µ4/3)

Simon Zeev: I like the full circle fish eye.
I think that the fish eye lens is a gimmick and for a gimmick the price is much too high.

It's not a consumer lens, it's for producing VR content.

On article Canon to move camera production back to Japan (110 comments in total)
In reply to:

extraone: the problem I see is not the QC but the work ethics.

out of all the asian countries, japan is the only country that has a very hard work ethic.

they live to work. all the rest work to live.

"think what you want it doesnt matter." is almost as ignorant as saying "out of all the asian countries, japan is the only country that has a very hard work ethic."

... they loan you the camera for a month? Is that with or without insurance?
