ZeBebito: Now imagine these shots with an adequate camera like a D850 or A7Riii...

Now imagine the editor who forgot to disable comments in a sponsored content article and reads this thread.

In reply to:

montypieman: Looking back at November... from December. I'm a fan of history, but find three week old history a bit too new for me.

And looking back at December and the fact that you looked backed at December and the fact that you looked back at looking back at December and that will go on indefinitely ultimately frying the Amazon data centres resulting in the end of dpreview and Amazon and possibly the internet.

In reply to:

DL Cade: Seems I'm outnumbered here, particularly on the use of the word "clone." Thank you everybody for the feedback. The post has been updated to refer to this lens as an alternative, not clone, and more clearly point out the differences.

Apologies for anything that came off as misleading or sloppy journalism : )

You are not outnumbered. It's just that dissenters will never stop en people who agree will let it be.

In reply to:

Han Bin: Apparently these two lenses have different design. Yongnuo's MF/AF switch is more Nikon's look. I don't really think Yongnuo is "cloning" Canon.

It's a Nikon Clone you are right. This is fake news: https://screenshots.firefoxusercontent.com/images/d9633c32-3008-4808-a56f-3f23671eefbd.png

according to the Yongnou legal department.

I can get a battery replacement for $20 for my 4 year old LG and that is an original battery. I won't because it isn't needed yet.

RadPhoto: I hope it will not be free!

DXO gives away older versions of their software for free. The older version of Nik is already free. So your hope is idle. But to make you happy there will also be a paid version so YOU can buy it an make a long nose to people who cannot afford it and that will make you very happy because you are rich and what use is it to be rich if you cannot look down on the poor and laugh at the poor sods.

Dante Birchen: The Nikon is worse than an average smartphone camera. The Oly is great for it's sensor size.

Makes you wonder if you shouldn't just get a waterproof bag for your phone:

still wrong. You need only one negative.
I wouldn't pick either Sony or Fujifilm
I would pick neither Sony or Fujifilm
I would pick Sony nor Fujifilm.

On article Best cameras for landscapes in 2020 (1125 comments in total)

The K-1 in pixelshift mode will give you a dynamic range which surpasses medium format camera's with the 50mp 44x33mm sensor and will deliver pictures almost as or as sharp. It's auto level is great for landscape and built in astrotracer with gps is also a great feature for landscapers. And it costs much less and the Pentax D FA 28-105 is a very sharp and affordable weather sealed zoom kit lens. The K-1 is a no brainer for landscapers. Why you would advise cameras that achieve less but cost more over it is a mystery to me.

Dante Birchen: a real panning mode would be cool. But there is always the Brenizer method. This is quite useless (as is any crop mode) because it can be done quite easily in post.

Actually we do, but you don't (know what we are talking about).

On article Buying Guide: The best cameras for students (65 comments in total)

Best for students would be a camera with dual control dials and a bright pentaprism viewfinder. Of course such a camera only exist in and alternate reality where there is such a brand as Pentax which has an excellent K-70 and excellent limited prime lenses to go with it.
