Joed700: Lens Choice...although you can always use FF lenses on DX sensors, you can comprise IQ with some lenses. A crop sensor basically can magnify the imperfections of a lens that's designed for FF. It's always better to get dedicated lenses for DX bodies.

Mmmmno.

nikonosv: Which camera is right for you?

FX vs DX, it's really that simple.

or as it should be called: cancer in a can.

MHT: I've been trying to decide between the D750 and D500 for months. I shoot primarily landscapes but also everything else at times and I can only justify one (expensive) body.
I've been leaning towards the D750 but didn't anyone else find this a bit disturbing:
"...the D500 provides an electronic first curtain shutter option, which allows landscape photographers to ensure vibration-free images – something that can be a challenge with the D750."
Is the "challenge" met by the firmware update, turning off VR when tripod mounted, locking up the mirror, or something else?? The last two are my common operating practice but a statement like that certainly deserves more of an explanation! I get why the D500 may have an advantage but wouldn't this "issue" affect portraits and pretty much anything other than moving targets? If I buy the D750, how do I go about meeting this "challenge" I wonder?

Get a low shutter count D800e for about $1500 which is far better than either for scapes.

I'll pull in a ton more detail with my $119 50 1.8D.

In reply to:

BaldCol: Comments on DPR about new features to PS or LR are so predicable now. No-one actually comments on the features. Just people banging on and on and on and on ad nauseum about how you pay for the software.

True. Really dumb. I find it far better than any other software and fairly priced.

Still not for all the money in the world:

m3: Too little too late. No amount of patchwork by Adobe is going to convince all those ripped off through the years to not seek out perfectly good alternatives to their market bullying.

Name one good alternative.

The best gets better. All the malcontents who won't spend ten bucks a month on their hobby are probably feeling the pressure :^)

In reply to:

falconeyes: Is this the level of innovation Adobe thinks is acceptable to CC users?

It saves to click 4 corners with the mask tool and then use content-aware fill which was inroduced with CS5, I believe. Actually, it just makes a script a built-in feature.

Where is the real innovation? A new tool like content-aware fill as such?

Perspective Warp is insane, and no one else has anything even close. Be happy.

In reply to:

Michael J Davis: I hope it works better than the content aware fills on the LR panorama tool. (The pano tool works fine - just that the edges seem to get filled randomly!)

Boundary Warp is not content aware fill, it stretches the existing content to fill the voids. Brilliant!
