Eric Hensel: Man that's an ugly car -even the paintjob...

In reply to:

K2TL: Huawei is known to provide telecommunication technology to a state sponsor of terrorism. Just saying.

Speaking as an American, I buy what I want, because the ramifications of international politics seldom has any relationship to what the people are doing themselves (mostly trying to make a living, like you.)
When I do make decisions about companies to boycott -the information generally comes from other sources. YMMV

Yake: When we have those whispers of ideas, a lot of people don't pursue them because we still have to earn a living. It's a necessity, not a choice. How nice that one photographer can float through life on philanthropy and big ideas, apparently unbound by conventional things like finances and time.

You are very welcome, Roman.

Either you're feigning ignorance, or you are -hard to tell in a forum. You used quotation marks! Quotes mean you're quoting...Writers do say "I'm paraphrasing".

I'm done with this nonsense.

The fact that one *can* mistake your "paraphrase" for a quote means you didn't Identify it as such, Roman. Carry on.

Yake - my apologies -It was Roman with the misquote --you merely mis-characterised the author's intent :D

Not everything requires an equivalency...or an exact yin to a yang. Cowart did not say what you say he said Yake -that's a fact. You want to interpret what he said through your narrow lens, that's your prerogative, but quit with the misquotes. BTW: he's right: "When we have those whispers of ideas, a lot of people don't pursue them because they think they're impossible or they think they can't, but I love the challenge of chasing those ideas no matter how big they are." I see that as a positive statement, YMMV.

neoroblitz: Probably the only company that announces non limited edition colors on an existing lineup and made it to the headlines....

nothing changed but a coat of paint.......

"Leica Camera has today announced that the APO-Summicron-M 50mm f/2 ASPH. is now available in a silver anodised version." "The Leica APO-Summicron-M 50 mm f/2 ASPH. (silver anodised) is scheduled to be available at the end of July 2016 at a suggested retail price of £5,900 including VAT."

You cannot anodise brass.

There is no mention of differing materials in the press release -only the anodizing. Perhaps the pr flack dropped the ball, but wouldn't you mention brass vs aluminum?

On article SLIK introduces SLIK LITE tripod line (32 comments in total)

Like a lot of folks, I can buy a new lens, or a Gitzo -not both.
As a 63yo carpenter, I know the value of buying the best tool once, rather than a cheap one several times, but that is not always possible, when you're 25, divorced with 2 kids. It's also not as true as 40 years ago, since the difference between cheap and best (tools, or photo equipment) has narrowed radically.

Marty4650: I can't decide.

Should I buy this lens or should I pay my electric bill for the next two years? Or perhaps buy groceries for a year?

Or maybe I could buy a really nice horse to ride?

decisions..... decisions....

Yake, good suggestions ;)
I only posted that because what he pays is close to the median for Dallas -where you never turn the AC off from May to October.

Timbukto: I would wonder if the onion bokeh balls that are stress tested in the nightscape appear in portrait situations? I mean it would depend on shutter duration and distance(brightness) of the point of light correct?

I never noticed polygonal, or OS bokeh in older films and TV work until I started coming here --Thanks DPR! ;)

"$333/mo in electricity?" My brother pays $450 from May to October in Dallas -a regular suburban home. A little less in winter.

In reply to:

PB47: I'm stunned at the price of these new Sony lenses. I think their pricing might put a damper on Canikon folks who are looking to make a move. Then again, there are so many affordable lenses they can adapt to these cameras, it probably won't. But Sony can't be expecting to sell too many of these at these prices.

I have the 55 1.8 and a Pentax M50 1.7 (I bought new in 1980). The Pentax is a lot of fun on my A7, but the combination of better sharpness, bokeh, contrast, color saturation (especially wide-open), not to mention autofocus (and I don't mind MF) means the 55 is almost always on the A7. Modern lenses are superior for day-to-day shooting.

What Webber15 said. Add the United States to that.

the decent exposure: 1500 Euro and it has this ugly cateye effect. I got my sigma art for 650 Euro, not cat eyes, or by far not on this level, and I don't think that this sony is any better, on visible level. sony, you lost my. all your new toys are far to expensive, not that I cold not buy it, but I just don't see a benefit in these investments anymore.
sony I'm out

Why not keep using the Sigma?

"Myself I am going in for the 55mm lens as I love the size and output "
Great lens, indeed.
