On article Sigma introduces EF-630 multi-function flash (22 comments in total)

Hey Sigma, please consider making a radio controllable flash system. Since Nikon is not interested in making one....

Steve Balcombe: Congratulations to Sigma for producing another unique lens. I do think, though, that if you think you need this lens you should seriously consider switching to full frame instead.

Current full frame Nikon cameras all have their AF points jammed in the center. I personally would prefer an imaginary 50-135/1.8 lens on DX over my 70-200/2.8 on FX because the AF points are spread evenly on DX.

Though I was hoping for a 50-135mm/1.8, still wanna say "thank you" to Sigma for doing things that Nikon wouldn't dare doing. And unlike Nikon, thank you for not charging an arm and a leg for your Art lenses. This is from a happy owner of the 18-35/1.8 Art, 24/1.4 Art, 35/1.4 Art, 50/1.4 Art, and future owner of the 85/1.4 Art ;)

36MP, 5-axis IBIS, weather-sealed, 100% viewfinder, and for just $1800!! What's not to like? Absolutely a photographer's camera. Makes me so wanna switch mount.

sierranvin: I so hope a viable, competent, serious competitor to Adobe will one day emerge and send them away, similar to what Google has done to Yahoo in search...

I hate Adobe with a passion ever since they introduced CC. Unless Adobe brings back the non-subscription version, I hope another company will emerge and send Adobe away.

Yohan Pamudji: Wireless communication type: Optical pulse communication (in multiple flash-unit photography operation)

Shame--would have been pretty much perfect if this were radio instead of optical.

If you say it loud enough, and the market is big enough, Phottix might make one for Fujifilm. I tried the Phottix Odin for Nikon, and I am really impressed.

I think it's a great tool for real estate agents.

I wish Tamron made a 85mm instead of the 45mm. Hope they will release a 85mm version in the future.

Beware that the VC on/off switch and the AF/MF switch are not weather sealed.

Ken Aisin: Thanks for the sample pics!! For the price it should come with a tripod collar though....

A side note to the manufacturers: Please consider making collars with feet that are Arca-Swiss compatible!!

Did Nikon do this on purpose to screw third party manufacturers?

Ken Aisin: It's about damn time Lightroom goes multi-threaded, and uses GPU for rendering.

I know for sure it is multi-threaded for exporting. But for all other operations, I'm doubtful.

If it truly is multi-threaded like you said, it certainly needs to be optimized.

On my machine (Intel 4790K OC'ed to 4.4GHz, Asus Sabertooth Z97 motherboard, 2x8Gb 1866 DDR3 RAM), I notice that it does use all cores at 100% only when exporting, but it does not really utilizes all cores effectively for image rendering.

The below article tested both Lr4 and Lr5, and found that "Lightroom was only using 30% to 60% of the CPU." Their test results also suggested that to speed up Lightroom, "the only thing that is going to boost speeds is a faster single core overclocked processor."

j900: I guess Adobe knows what the photographic community as a whole thinks of their subscription business model...

To each their own, but I would much rather own my tools than rent my tools.

Hey Nikon, Canon's done it. Now, where is our D400?

I'd rather go for this one plus the GoPro gimbal for $789.
