On article Canon patents 400mm F5.6 catadioptric 'mirror' lens (198 comments in total)

That's what I call innovation. Bravo Canon!
The patent will ensure no one will steal this state of the art technology!

"A set of adapters is also available for MFT, Fujifilm X and Sony NX cameras"

What are Sony NX cameras?

mick232: To his defense, it looks as if he wants to kick the camera out of her hands (the kick was somehow sideways). That surely was intentional and inappropriate. I do not see any intent to hurt her as the primary purpose of that assault.

@Gerard: it doesn't take a "good" intention nor does it take more than one. It only takes an alternative intention. What matters is if the intention was to hurt someone or something else, e.g. prevent her from filming. No matter how irresponsible or inappropriate the action to achieve that was.

A court of law will have to decide about that after evaluating all evidence. Not this forum. I hope that he will be given a fair trial without prejudice, regardless if he's an a**hole or not.

Tom Holly: I love everyone saying “sue him!”

Probably the same people who complain about lawyers and a culture of litigation.

I want her to receive compensation adequate for the damage she has suffered.

I want him to be punished adequately.

I don't want his life or family to be ruined. I don't want her to benefit from the incident beyond being compensated.

Driving a car while drunk is likely to hurt someone, too. You wouldn't be charged with murder but with negligent homicide, at least where I live. That is the difference I'd like to point out here.

lambert4: Maybe its me, but I just don't get the infatuation. Now there are body cap lens in Micro four thirds with fixed f/8 aperture that were small easy to use and unique, these just don't resonate with my tastes.
I guess at $50 or under though someone may find a creative use.

The 50mm lens has a pinhole size of 0.1mm
So it's f/500.

What a misleading title! It was obvious right from the start that DPR wouldn't dare to declare a winner in that duel.

In reply to:

GabrielZ: Nearly 10 grand for a standard 50mm F2 lens and not much less for the non special edition versions is insane! What’s Leica’s profit margin on these? 1000 percent! Just crazy! But it’s Leica, I suppose if I had that kind of disposable income. Being the photo enthusiast that I am, I might purchase them myself...they are very pretty, especially in silver LOL!

So? What exactly does that prove?

james s. kennedy: I have the Leica M2, 3, 4 and 6, plus about 10 screwmount cameras. I am 81, and my wife, who doesn’t know an f stop from a doorstop tells me they will all go for $5 each in a garage sale upon my demise, along with about 150 Nikons and Canons. I gave up on Canon when they orphaned the FD lenses.

I love the old Leica screwmounts, but they had terrible ergonomics. Loading them with film would drive me crazy..

What's your address? I've made a few bargains from exactly that kind of situation.

mick232: The DXOmark scores are done without pixel shift. In that case, the A7R3 ties the D850.

When enabling pixel shift, the A7R3 gains almost one stop of dynamic range and pulls ahead of the D850.

In this chart we can see that neither D850 nor A7R3 exceed 12 stops at any ISO:
http://www.photonstophotos.net/Charts/PDR.htm#Nikon%20D850,Sony%20ILCE-7RM3

This chart shows that in pixel shift mode, the A7R3 reaches 12.79 stops of DR. This is a value the D850 never reaches:
http://www.photonstophotos.net/Charts/PDR_PixelShiftMultiShooting.htm#Sony%20ILCE-7RM3,Sony%20ILCE-7RM3(PSMS)

I don't think Nikon can add pixel shift anytime soon. Pixel shift is done with the sensor-based image stabilization system, which Nikon doesn't have. They went down a different route and stabilized the lenses instead.

Sure, blending images is possible. But you have to draw the line somewhere, I'd say that is where you need third-party software to do it rather than using camera features only. Granted, currently you also need Sony software to combine the pixel shift images. I expect it's only a matter of time until that will become obsolete.

The Fat Fish: Sony and Nikon are doing amazing things. Well done to both companies.

Ozturert, this article is about dxomark scores, which measures sensor performance only. AF has nothing to do with it. And it's a fact that Nikon is not doing amazing things in image sensor development.

Well, Sony is doing amazing things, and then sells them to Nikon.

Dietrich Reinhardt: At 100 ISO, looks to me that D850 out-resolves the competition. Also, can't say that I see much difference between the two Sony's.

I doubt the D850 outresolves any camera with pixel shift.

$1500 - LOL. For a camera that doesn't even come with a meter.
