On article Samyang goes Premium with MF lens range (58 comments in total)

That headline gave me a long nose: I thought MF meant Medium Format :)

But that said, if the 14 mm perform as indicated by the MTF chart I will likely buy one.

On article Corel PaintShop Pro X9 arrives with improved workflow (45 comments in total)
In reply to:

rubank: I am very fond of Corel products, I use Draw a lot for making documents, broshures and so on; nothing suits me better. And for stitching photos nothing beats PhotoPaint IMO. The printing module of the Corel suite is just super.
But for developing RAW Corel has nothing to really compete - still IMO.
Unfortunately Adobe has.
And that´s too bad.

I know, I´ve tried it and don´t like it.

Kiwisnap: How come no one ever does these for Nikon?

Becuase Nikon lenses for the most part use 1950´s technology: mechanical aperture.

In reply to:

Sports Shooter: who's is young enough to remember the Pentax LX? It had a good lens/accessories system build around it. I fell in love with the K1000 and was seriously thinking to get the LX but then I went for the Canon F1.
The K-1 sounds like a great affordable FF camera but Pentax is lagging behind with the lens system.

Best feature of the LX was it´s VF system. Wonderful sports finder!
Too bad there´s no DSLR with changeable VF....

rubank: Seems very nice, BUT
I don´t understand the design. The very short handgrip make for a very unbalanced feeling with a bigger lens, there is no support for the lower part of the palm. Strange.

No

At 400 mm really unimpressive :(

In my experience tele zooms are more often used at max zoom than at shorter settings, and yet few seems to be optimized for the longest FL. Weird.
And at that price it´s a shame.

The poor guy in the last pic seems to suffer from yellow fever...

All over, WB is not a priority, obviously. (Of course my screen could be totally off...)

These images will hardly sell that lens :D

In reply to:

DAJM: Corel claim that the Aftershot products work with RAW files from the Nikon D810. They don't. Or, at least, the free trial versions I downloaded don't. Has anyone here solved this problem?

I´m using D810 and had no problems working with the RAW files in AS Pro2 trial version.
That I didn´t like the results (as explained further down) is another matter.
Sorry, can´t help you on your specific problems with D810 RAWs, I´ve already uninstalled it.

As much as I like some Corel products (Draw and Photo-Paint which I use a lot) I have never seen a really competitive RAW developer from them.
And AS Pro2 still doesn´t cut it, IMO.

Weird colour blothces in Hi Iso shots that sometimes disappear in preview and then reappear but are always there on output. And the NR sliders make no sense to me since the effect seems very vaguely related to the setting.

Too bad, seems very hard to make anything better than ACR - or even equal.

Interesting.
Three control wheels and ISO both on the mode dial and as a separate button.
I wonder what they´re thinking...

Aren´t these news more in line with the interests of the DPR audience?

In reply to:

STR54: Just one favor Tamron. Could you create a weather-sealed, close focusing 400mm F4 VC telephoto prime that is $2k less than the Canon counterpart? Please!

That shouldn´t be hard, Tamron made an excellent 400/4 MF lens some 25 yrs ago so the recipe is in the house :)
(I have the 300/2,8 MF from the same era, nice lens)

Ouch!
The RAWs with lifted shadows show severe banding. Unusably severe.
What a shame, it´s not like there´s no good 24 Mp FF sensors out there....

rubank: How interesting to see what the G7 can do at f/16-22.... (maybe not)

Yeah, 1/160 sec and f/16 is a givaway. Extremely bright, eh.

In reply to:

Pat Cullinan Jr: These images are flat and have a cool cast. I hit some of them hard with Photoshop and achieved snap and pop. I applied White Point to remove the cast. Digital ROC was no help.

Is this a beta example?

Everybody's having a great time on a memorable sunny day.

There are some flat and cool pics for sure, but they are mainly with the 100-300 lens as it seems (on my screen).

In reply to:

BarnET: Have to admit.
For a 50mp sensor the ISO performance is pretty impressive!

To BarnET:
Not if you process to the same output size AND the same resolution. Then the high Mp sensors win even at high ISO.
