ossme: What is the minimum focusing distance on this one? And how is the focusing speed?

I got the Canon 85mm F1.2L II but I might consider switching to this one instead...

I would consider switching if the focusing is more reliable on the Sigma.
I absolutely love the look of the 85L, but the focussing is so unreliable particularly at 1.2. If I take 3 shots in succession - refocussing on a non-movable subject - none of the shots will have identical focus result. It's a liability using this lens at weddings. Where other lenses allow me to take one snap per scene, I have to click away multiple times to ensure at least one of them is in focus. You simply never know if the shot is going to be sharp. And no - the lens is not faulty - I tried 2 other 85L's and they all have the same "trait". Shooing with 5d MKIII

On article Field Test: Wedding Photography with the Fujifilm X-T2 (236 comments in total)

good video. Though I'm surprised they suggest moving "from indoor to outdoor is a nightmare" and that the camera will take care of that with it's advanced metering.
As a professional wedding photographer, I do not consider changing environments a nightmare. I never, ever let the camera do the thinking - I shoot manual and intuitively change the settings as I move around different environments.
Also, not a big fan of flash use - an example is at 7:02 - harsh shadows is an eye sore in my opinion. Either I would have used a softer light source, (and) or combined two raw images (one exposed on backdrop/one on the people).
Just my two cents.

Henrikw: Bravo Apple - after all this camera hype, it turns out to be almost as good as the S7. Almost...
And what a win for Apple fans to finally be able to enjoy a phone without the terrible headphone jack. As Apple argued, it was necessary to make space for all the new tech. Let's just ignore that the 7+ is larger and heavier than the S7 Edge and does not contain any revolutionary tech.
If Apple really cared about sorting something which would be greatly appreciated by consumers, they would have put more research into significantly improving the battery life. We are still waiting for a revolution.

On article Opinion: Park vandals need to be stopped (338 comments in total)

"their reason for doing this was because their friend jumped off the formation and broke or injured his leg."
Is this supposed to justify destroying it? Whoever allegedly injured his leg had no business standing on it in the first place. I hope justice is served for these imbeciles.
Unlike vandalism on most manmade objects, this is irreplaceable.

Henrikw: Amazing photos. However, the shot of the golden langur (number 4) stands out to be as being inferior in quality. Seems like a random snapshot compared to the rest

It's nice, no doubt. But unlike the others it is blurry and given that "you are guaranteed to see one" on this island, anyone could travel there and snap away. The others are in a different league in my humble opinion but good luck to all contestants

Kai Pfaffenbach: "When Usain Bolt prepared for his 100m semi-final I decided to play with slow shutter speed for that race. I set my camera (shutter speed) to a 50th of a second and was waiting for the moment when he passed my position. In this very right moment he looked to his left with the proud smile and my first thought was: 'hopefully I got this sharp.' Well, I've been a lucky bunny in this case but I still would not have imagined at this moment that this picture would go viral and get worldwide recognition.

Very impressive shot . Here at 100%

People who really want to film/take pictures in these areas will just jailbreak the phone. Surely there will be a workaround.
I'm a happy android convert btw

Switched to the S7 Edge a few months ago - iphone user for 7 years.
All my worries about switching to Android were unfounded. The phone is amazing in every way - camera, expandable memory (I have almost 200gb), everything is configurable, and no reliance on software to add music and videos.
I certainly don't miss apple and doubt I ever will.

Limited use without auto focus. Could have been a great wedding lens, but 1.2 manual focus would not work for this purpose.

RedFox88: 3 nikon reviews in a row? How much are they paying dpr?!

Why are people so hung up on whether dpr is being paid by the manufacturers? If you think the review is biased and unfair, state why you think that is. These dodgy bribery theories are getting a bit tiring to be honest.
Dpr takes heat if they don't review enough and accused of bias if they review too much. Ridiculous.

In reply to:

dbm305: On the comparison tool the A6300 seems a bit sharper at base ISO than the A6000. That's odd. Is there are weaker AA filter? Is it a different lens? Am I fooling myself?

Other way around in the corners:

Henrikw: I feel a bit more effort could have gone into the gallery. People practising parkour sounds like the perfect opportunity to capture some stunning action shots, but I see none.
Anyway, I'm in no doubt this camera is another winner from Sony - I've had the A6000 for a couple of years and it continues to impress me.
When it comes to capturing action, I will pick this any day over my 5D mkIII.

When I say action I don't necessarily mean sports. Could be the kids running around. Or recently I got some cool shots of my son racing his 30 mph rc car. I covered a big Dodgeball event last year with the a6000 and I got better shots then previous years using the 5d MkIII/MKII. Using mostly the 50mm 1.8
