LessMirrored19: Why DSLRs lenses are heavy compared to mirrorless lenses ?

LessM:

Is that 12-24mm Sony EF lens justs as fast as the Sigma and Canon examples?

Dale Garman: This is incredibly disappointing. I have been on LR since it's very first version, and have recommended it to many people, but will now be forced to look at alternatives. There is still no reasonable exit strategy if you want to stop the monthly payment. It's the work in the non destructive edits that you eventually lose.

But this may be a key strategic mistake as we look back. This clearly opens to the door even further for alternative solutions as I think many will turn their back on Adobe now. Fortunately it appears a tool like On1 may be finally getting close to being pretty good, and much more stable than when originally introduced. And there are others.

I'm rooting for the competition now - bring it on. Goodby Adobe

crazycaption:

Affinity has horrid higher ISO noise reduction. Silkypix is better, and that's near crap. AftershotPro 3 is better, and that's not strong.

Affinity, on a Windows 7 machine, insists one turn on effin Aero.

Affinity insists on downloading some ancient version of MS .NET, even on a fully up to date Windows 7 computer.

It's crap for the crap NR alone.

As a Photoshop replacement it's missing a lot, off the top of my head Selective Color.

HowaboutRAW: So as many people predicted LR changed to rental only.

Right, suppress or remove Adobe update manager, especially if CS6 is fully updated.

I just missed your comment.

The point about Photoshop CC being on the main hard drive of your computer means that Photoshop CC isn't really "cloud" software.

stevo23: Ooh Ah!

How is the Milvus badge determined vs. the Otus? Are all Otus APO?

Oti are more likely to be sharp across the entire frame--hence the Oti are bigger for the same speed and focal length.

Have you tried the SonyZeiss 50mm f/1.4 or the Leica SL 50mm f/1.4?

The Sony EF GM 70-200mm f/2.8 constant be pretty far from "light".

I think the question is about slow lenses and full framed mirrorless systems. Slower lenses, like that SonyZeiss f/2.4 35mm, are reasonably light. And for the most part the Loxia and Batis lenses are slower.

Then there's the fact that this Milvus is designed for full framed SLRs, while many mirrorless bodies are APSC or smaller.

badi:

Ah, didn't read the entire link, except to confirm that the article said nothing about V7 being rental only.

And of course, didn't participate in disparaging the speculation that LR V7 (whatever the name "really" is) would be rental only.

ewelch: If not for Windows, I’d be interested, but would still prefer laptop and iPad combo. With an iPad Pro, who needs a Wacom tablet? If this laptop has as good pen support as the iPad Pro, Wacom can’t hold a candle to it.

Still I prefer discreet tools rather than jack of all trades.

What 3D CAD runs on an iPAD?

UneVache:

But that link is about speeding up LR, not about making in rental only.

Even the rental only version of Photoshop is almost entirely on your computer's main drive.

You won't be needing this monster to push Lightroom to it's limits. A computer with even average specs will do that! :)

ewelch:

And yet, Xeon processors have been an option on high end HP laptops for at least 18 months.

Look, a laptop, with a 10 bit IPS screen (DreamColor is the HP name), plus a big video card, plus a fast i7 CPU, is not going to be able to run Photoshop or Solidworks for several hours on just an internal battery.

Have you tried the new On1 beta.

On1 V1 was a giant mess. Affinity is a mess. Alienskin X3 looks a bit better.

PhotoNinja hasn't been updated in months, so no Nikon D850, and perhaps no Sony A9.

Leaving of course C1 and DXO, though last time I checked DXO, it was turning raws (NEFs) into files that couldn't be opened with other raw extraction software.

lightandaprayer: I have a Nikon soft focus filter from my wedding photography days 35 years ago that produces a similar effect for a lot less money. . .

Rensol:

"Do not show off your illiteracy"[sic]?

"Any color cast introduced by a lens is in nature simple color filter applied over the image."

Depending on your definition of "cast" perhaps, but what you really mean is you know little about colour.

"Should you had a clue about what the color is and how color correction works you would not make such comments!"

This is just an illiterate reiteration of your confusion about colour.

As a suggestion regards improving, not completing, your "understanding" of colour: Read the Edwin Land article on the cover of Scientific American May 1959.

A further suggestion, as a place to start, in Photoshop CC/CS, learn to use Selective Color; that's based on something else--not cast. No, it is not a substitute for colour work with a good lens.

Requoting you:

"Should you had a clue about what the color is and how color correction works you would not make such comments!"

All this screams is "I know little about colour".

Actually HP, and Dell, have had Xeon processor laptops for more than a year.

Chris59:

Well, except light was, the principles underlying my point about colour were known to some, more likely in Germany.

And more germane: That 35mm camera-lens combination from 1935 could be loaded and shot with color film in 1975 easily enough.

"No good lens should alter color!"

Says you don't know a great deal about colour/light.

Nope, colour can't just be fixed in Photoshop, or in the lab. You've also proven you're not real familiar with color work in Photoshop CS/CC.

lightandaprayer,

I await raws from this lens. However, no it doesn't especially interest me.

And Leica colour/light? Do you mount the filter on very good Zeisses?

HowaboutRAW: So does this smartphone camera not shoot raw? Hint.

noisephotographer:

"You don't know what I know, but you seem to know nothing about HDR+. HDR+ is not just HDR, it is an algorithm that makes a camera sensor behave like a larger one and it's fundamentally different from HDR algorithms. "

This says a lot about what you don't know.

" Raw files from Google phones often can not compete with HDR+. HDR+ is not a handicap."

Reread:

HDR requires multiple images, that's a handicap. And basically makes HDR assemblies unusable in many situations.

Now perhaps in 10-15 years those multiple images can all be recorded within say 1/500 - 1/100 of a second. But now that's not possible. Therefore HDR imaging can be a real handicap in many everyday situations.

You don't know much about digital imaging.

"And 3rd party apps for shooting raw is not an Apple thing at all. Google phones could shoot in raw before iPhones could do that."

True, Android phones had raw before iPhones, but one didn't need a 3rd party application to access raw.
