pdelux: Personally I have no idea why anyone still wants to use a rangefinder-- but to each their own.

I would rather adapt those lovely leica lenses onto a more practical camera

With range finder You shot with both eyes open and you have completely known of entite visual field. It is essential for street photo…. And usually Leica shot are in hyperfocal mode…… the only real problem is his cost

Kjeld Olesen: Quite nice, but I would have prioritized R&D resources for an update to the EF 50/1.4 :-)

I agree 100%

Marty4650: An interesting device. Essentially.... an Olympus Air that has a Canon EOS mount. In both cases, the smartphone is used to control the camera and store the images taken.

It is more likely a Canon EOS mount was chosen so Yongnuo could market this to Canon lens owners, rather than because they Yongbuo makes a few Canon mount lenses themselves. This means the device could appeal to 50% of all ILC users rather than just the 6% who own M4/3 lenses.

Excuse me...let me understand! I use Canon EF lens with a little 1" sensor, but with more size and less ergonomics ....at least but not last I have less storage. Very nice!

I have the composer and the lensbaby 3g and I enjoy a lot shoting with. Yes You can in post pp get something similar, but when you have the lensbaby attached You are forced to get something difference and You shoot different.
I know it is strange to comprend, but you get home different shoots and sometimes special ones.
For the price .....I agree they are tooo expensive , but I bought 2 old copies in Bay for 40€ each one.....

Life recorder: Wow. think of this.

You need a super low light video camera to shoot at a good distance.
You could get an A7SII with the Sony 70-200mm F/2.8 zoom which is going to be awkward and expensive.
OR you could get the Panasonic 35-100mm F/2.8 which is small and portable. Oh it costs less than 1/2 the price too.
It appears that at many ISO, the Panasonic would be as good or better!

From photos comparison I see a huge difference in image quality especially in coulors and deep of field ...no match. If You do not need super fast AF I think will be better a used Canon FF and a good lens.

Very good result considering 3200 ISO and obviously 1/1000 shutter speed....I have old m43 and my Af is not comparable....But... the bokeh is absolutely 1000 years far from aps-c or ff. The shot seems more phone like than pro ones. A 1ds mkiii with a bright lens gives better results

Leica is NOT photographic market. It is like luxury brand ...see Rolex. ...The Leica growth is the result of a progressive general Impoverishment and a even more Enrichment of a ristrected number of people that spend 20.000€ to Flaunt an exclusive camera. A real photographer buy other ...himo

In reply to:

AlanG: You might be able to focus this fairly consistently on an A7 camera. Pretty challenging with a rangefinder. Calibration must be dead on and subject must be centered. It could be a special look when you do get it right.

Some Leica shooters seem to love minimal depth of field. I usually prefer maximum depth of field and bringing all elements of a scene together. Many of the "famous" Leica photos have everything in focus... something that was hard to do handheld with larger cameras.

Since depth of focus refers to a region behind the lens in front of and behind the sensor, shouldn't it say "hair thin depth of field?"

They do go hand in hand but photographers are usually concerned with depth of field in the image.

I agree ..thake a sharp portrait photo with a full frame and 75mm f1.25 is only a question of luck! Usually Leica shothers prefer use iperfocal with all in focus

sirhawkeye64: iPhone (or Apple devices in general) were never easy to repair. I remember having to replace an SSD in a Macbook recently. Not difficult, but you do have to cut through some of their security tape and remove some things to get to the SSD. I can understand why they do this (it forces you to go back to them or an authorized repair shop).

I repair phones for hobby...I confirm Apple devices to be more simply to repair instead of general android phones (Samsung included) . The last ones have no screws and more glue to remove with clear more difficult for reassemble.

Yes I see too.
But the gain in usability and flidity compensate the loss

ttran88: apple makes excellent products with excellent after sales service. If your iPhone craps on you just walk into any Apple Store around the world and have it fixed on the spot. Many times if it's still under warranty they would just give you a brand new phone. No android vendor will or is able to provide the same top shelf service.

No Istarted for gaming open and repair phones 3 yars ago...Apple are perfectly reparable look at fixit site...Android phones are completely glue assembled apart for battery....Anyway battery and screen are really simply to replace in last iPhone from (5 until now)

On article Canon unveils stabilized EF 85mm F1.4L lens (515 comments in total)
In reply to:

Edgar_in_Indy: Wait, I'm confused. I've been told many times by Canon-faithful that stabilization is not needed for larger-aperture lenses such as 35mm, 50mm, and 85mm 1.4 lenses. If you needed stabilization for those lenses, then you were obviously not doing it right.

That is one of the main reasons that the lack of IBIS on Canon bodies was supposedly no big deal.

I've the 85 1.8 and the 28-135 ums IS that use with my 5D...at 85 IS is very useful for micro shake, with 28-136 I shot at 1/20 and with 85 f1.8 at 1/100 for the same perfect result...so I must use ISO 1600 insted of ISO 400. With this one I can use ISO 400 as well at 1/20 .....
