Cisco1962: What are those two little white dots close to the oled display?

They are obviously used for tripod collar alignment...

Einride: How do they do this? A super fast, super thin diamond saw blade? Water jet? Lasers?

I think they don't cut a completed lens ....but they "rebuild" it, starting with a cut in half empty housing and then insert the lenses that had also been cut in half one by one....

jackf00: How can you reward on December 2nd, in your DPREVIEW AWARDS 2018, Sony A7III as Product of the Year ahead of Fuji XT3 in second place, and now on December 22nd, Fuji XT3 as Best Camera ahead of A7III ?

The conclusion: There is no 'best camera' that is better than any other camera.
The best camera is the camera that fits your photographic preferences, your ergonomic preferences, that gives you the best choice of lenses for *your* personal needs etc.

On article Canon EOS R review (3320 comments in total)

An underrated camera!
Despite the limitations for video the camera is a real fun to shoot photos with an excellent AF hit rate.
Ergonomics are somewhat different to Canon DSLR but the evaluation of its ergonomics is a very personal one.
I could adapt quickly and love to work with the EOS R.
The build quality is excellent and the hit rate in one shot AF is exceptional high.

My Sigma 35mm 1.4 Art (purchased Dec. 2016, no firmware update) shows 1EV underexposure in M mode on the Canon EOS R, but works fine in Av mode. The EVF also shows a darker view in M mode! (Digital Lens Optimizer ist turned off)
Shots with the exact *same* settings (aperture, time, ISO) are about 1EV underexposed in M mode (and properly exposed in Av mode)... maybe aperture control is flawed and aperture is set lower than indicated?

steelhead3: Why would Sony be at fault....other cards work fine. Sandisk has made a bad batch since their other cards perform like they should.

...but the card works in slot 2 too... and in any other camera....

Nikoncanonfan: Wouldn't happen with a canon or nikon....

Tony Northrup used a card with a low writing speed being too slow for Canon's 4K video data rate...that's what caused the Err02 with his card when trying to record video.

In reply to:

mahonj: Could we have an indication of the focal length each shot was taken at?

The real focal length is supplied (here 7.9mm)
To calculate a "full frame equivalent" focal length you would have to multiply this by 5.566
So the "equivalent" focal length for this image would be 7.9mm * 5.566 = 43,97mm

Stopped down by 1.3 stops the sharpness is excellent with high contrast ...even at the long end (105mm)

Acceptable sharpness... and the bokeh looks quite good.

What is "more serious"?
If the demand " has exceeded expectations" (Canon 6DII with EF 24-70 4.0 IS) or if a 100th anniversary edition (Nikon D5) is delayed by several weeks due to "final adjustments"?

Sacher Khoudari: Oh yes, always prefer a photographer that shoot on a 2002's 11MP EOS 1Ds over a photographer that shoots on a 2016's crop sensor.

At least the 1Ds images will have better bokeh due to shallow depth of field... :)

AKPhotoArt: Obvisiously Joe Klamar had no experience in studio shots.
He made too many mistakes an experienced studio photographer would not have done!

Apparently he shot most (if not all) of these images with his 17-35mm lens and form a short distance resulting in unpleasant and often distorting perspectives.
His 70-200mm lens would have been the much better choice in this studio environtment, with significantly increased subject distance.

Second he often decided to show the limited width of the backdrop paper, showing black studio environment in the outer areas.

Often, whole-body images of the athletes were take at eye level from a very short distance resulting in a very amateurish perspective with shrinking short legs due to the high camera angle.

Third the light setup is often unpleasant with large areas of the athelte's face completely hidden in black shaddows.

That he is often cutting off hands or feet additionally shows his lack of talent and studio experience.

"Just saying that some variation in photos sometimes is refreshing."

Variations are refreshing a slong as they are creative variations.
But using amateurish perspectives, cutting off hands and feet and so on are NOT so called 'variations' but show the lack of photographic knowledge and studio experience.
