BobT3218: On two separate images he mentions using f9. Was this just a coincidence and why be so specific, I mean why not f8 or f11? I often see professional images shot using aperture priority then selecting fractional f stops. I'm certainly not able to assess the difference in DOF of 1/3f stop through the view finder. What am I missing?

If a certain amount of (shallow) depth of field isn't required shooting at the lens' best setting of course makes sense.

He probably profiled his lens and f9 is sharpest corner to corner.

Neil189: I don’t know what this notch problem is all about. A notch, BFD. How entitled can someone be. People are starving, people are homeless, people live in war torn cities, people have cancer, but “my screen can’t have a notch”. I don’t get it. I have a iPhone X. I guarantee my life would not be better if the notch was not there. It’s a awesome device, have we forgot that you can video call someone, browse a endless domain of information, listen to 100,000 songs and so much more from a device that fits in your pocket that just about every level of income can obtain?

I read a article where Sharp or some company had the “nerve” to put two notches on the front of a new smart phone they are releasing. They wrote articles about this, people actually cared. Can you believe it? A handheld awesome communication computer with two notches?! How dare they!

The more entitled snapchatting tweeting soft b*tches I see whining about a notch, the more I like it. Reminds me I’m not like them.

Really, why do you care about other peoples' First World Problems while other people are starving, homeless, live in war torn cities or have cancer? Probably even all together? Spend your 100+ words on creating a petition.

Kevin DiOssi: Either this lens has some incredibly bad pincushion distortion...or that wall was built very poorly. Judging from the other images in the gallery with straight lines, this lens appears to have a massive distortion problem.

Damn! This is a portrait lens. So it also shouldn't be used for straight people?

AshMills: What's wrong with the software that runs this website now? Just asking!

@zonoskar: from this article:
"you'll build on the full power of AWS [amazon web services] and use the latest web standards and technologies to create industry-leading experiences for millions of visitors."
1) This is about building this web page.
2) In the back there is complex stuff, not just some copy-pasted or auto-generated HTML and JavaScript and probably some PHP/RoR/Django coding.

That freaking FLASH has to go!
Upload to galleries currently isn't possible without flash.
I also stumbled across some inconsistencies which I currently don't remember...

FOTONOTO: Kudos to the XT-3 style fully articulated rear screen!
It's better than a stone-aged flip-out style screen in almost every condition other than shooting yourself.

It's on-axis.
It's good for touch operations during waist level shooting, portrait or landscape.

@andrrole: not useful for tripod use? Try using a fully articulating screen with an L-bracket...
It is close to impossible to tilt a FAS down with an L-Bracket while a pure tilting screen just works fine for horizontal compositinos. This is experience with Panny G81 and Oly E-M1.

A bold statement to show mFT customers that with the announcement of Pana FF they will not abandon mFT.
But it still is just a development announcement... Let's see.

LessMirrored19: Why this simples looks worse than my Nex-5 image quality ?

I just love any kind of animals. I feed stray dogs, I feed stray cats. And even some stray mice once in a while. Why shouldn't I feed stray trolls?

In reply to:

Luke Kaven: Owners of older cameras are a little too quick to dismiss the new one. Buyer's remorse. The new camera is clean in the shadows over ISO 12800, and does show obvious traces of thermal/self-noise. Add the degree of pixel-detail retained, and you've got an extraordinary camera with some of the most malleable files ever. Yes, your older cameras still take great pictures. But this camera, sir, will kill!

And when you bought into full frame and look over to the new Fuji X-T3 you might even get Bayer's remorse...

In reply to:

Macromind: What modifications to the raw files were done to make the adjusted .jpg's? Should there have been EV adjustments prior to some of the images? Was the post processing done with NX, Photoshop, Elements, Lightroom, etc.?
Also, it would have been interesting to compare these images with a similar D850 and D500 set ups.
All mages look Ok until they are compared with other set up.

Click on "Details" and read the text in the small stripe at the bottom of the image, contains all infos concerning RAW conversion.
And I am sure there will be some comparison in the review when it's out This is just a F***** update to an update to a photo gallery.

In reply to:

NCB: How about a new gallery for the pics shot with a production camera? The existing one is getting crowded.

Also, a good selection of proper landscape pics.

Probably an additional filter option in the grid view would be better? Having spread photos from basically the same camera over several galleries isn't that good, either. IMO the most noticable difference in the production camera might be the jpeg engine. (besides tweaks in exposure/AF algos and the like) Sensor and RAW data should (at that stage) really be the same.

JackM: Dude looks like a lady.

Nono, it's the other way around. Lady looks like a dude. It's due to the rendering of the lens, Leica micro contrast here extremely accentuates the pores and makes them look like a beard.

msheikh921: man, am in already in love with the Rendering of the Z35! micro-contrast is very un-nikon like!

Shoot it at f 2.8/f4 and you will get comments that this lens should be tested wide open ;)

In reply to:

xPhoenix: Looks like focus is on the mouth area, not eyes?

Yes, it's one of the criticisms that the Z7 and Z6 don't have eye AF but only face detection. Probably just an issue with preproduction models, probably a later firmware update will add it. Let's wait and see.

// edit: or probably the photographer just put the AF point on the wrong spot (nose/mouth).

Hasa: Why would we need a F5.6 shot? this is not where an expensive f1.8 lens should distinguish itself.

Still better than non-elected benchmark-dictator I think ;)

@Hasa: There are 49 images shot with this new 35mm S lens in this gallery. 34 of them were shot at f1.8. (one at 1.4 which seems to be an error...)
Please chose one of those shots to do whatever you want but stop posting your crap here on one of the 15 shots that were not taken wide open. (sorry to be so harsh but you already once ignored my advice to use the grid view + filter feature in this gallery and I wanted to be sure...)

lakkot: I'll take the Sony-Zeiss 24-70 F4 over this any time of the day (and especially night).

I do not know how you can even try to judge lens sharpness based on OOC-JPEGs that obviously have too much NR going on. THIS IS A PREPRODUCTION CAMERA AND FIRMWARE (and lens)! Wait for final products and RAW conversions.
