On article Sony announces FE 135mm F1.8 G Master lens (406 comments in total)
In reply to:

wats0n: Something really off with these samples. They just completely lack character and definition. It’s like no pop or anything.

The enviornment and lighting probably have a lot to do with the lack'o luster. Butt-fugly subject matter doesn't help either.

lighthunter80: Yeah, hire some more Sony! You're lacking in that department.

Yeah I don't get it, I mean they have the market cornered don't they? They don't really have to worry about competition and sensors are pretty darn good right now.

nerd2: They are not lying - it should be the sharpest among all 250mm lenses.

@Mistral... so thats a "no" then?

Isn't it like the ONLY 250mm lens on the market?

Focus pull is an art form unto itself and can be as vital to the film as the script. One focus pull is worth a thousand frames. Great article!

A whole lot of sarcasm and wits exchanged. Y'all make better comedians than photographers.

Prairie Pal: The FF SNOBS snorting at the sensor size/price ratio should consider themselves lucky. With their cutting-edge R&D, inspiring braveness and marketing, if Olympus decided to drop in a bigger sensor, your Canons, your Nikons, your Sonys would instantly self-incinerate. All it would take is one or two sport lenses to kick off the format, and pro support.

Be brave everyone.....be brave.

Joachim Gerstl: Wow! Compact cameras with sensors instead of film. Awesome!

I spotted someone wearing bell bottoms last week. It was an omen.

On photo Fire and Ice in Nevada in the Steam Train challenge (44 comments in total)

So surreal plus addicting to look at. My first impression was the strong presence of the steam; I was reminded of the plume attached to the helmet of an ancient gladiator. The crispness of the air comes across as well.

On article Olympus posts second teaser for upcoming sports camera (377 comments in total)

Was there anything in the teaser or press releases so far to imply this could NOT be a FF body?

On article Nikon Z 50mm F1.8 S sample gallery (337 comments in total)
In reply to:

Satyaa: I am not personally a fan of 50mm focal length for my use (prefer the 35mm and 85mm) but I must say that some of these photos are very good.

Sometimes, samples like these make me feel like I should be shooting that focal length but I'm not there yet :)

If that's the 50, there could be some fore-going the 85 (if the 85 i$ too far out of reach)

Stanchung: 70mm is too short for FX.

But 70mm is like 432 inches in the "states" eh.

Are you talking about the American Flag, or banding and noise?

According to PETA the first ape to take a selfy on the moon is the owner.

I think "the boss" used an algorithm to select products to feature, and had the DPR staff pull them out of a hat. Like a secret santa draw. Or at the very least gave DPR the list to choose from and Jeff wasn't in the office that day.

In reply to:

Robert111: A lot depends on the photographer understanding the strengths, weaknessess, and limits of a camera and skill in using it. I had a P900 but software/menu system went wonky after 3 days so I returned it. I didn’t like the handling or IQ while it was working. For me, the P1000 might serve a specialized role for bird identification.

However, my E-M1.2 with PL100-400 does that quite well with cropping if necessary and for me provides the best balance of reach, size/weight, autofocus, image quality, and (cost compared to full frame). The Rx10.4 is also a pretty good choice as a lighter cheaper travel camera. Great wildlife shots depend on getting reasonably close so that not too much cropping is required.

@Thematic- but the world needs MORE images of the moon, birds' eyes, and baboon arses! ;)
