On article First samples: Leica Thambar-M 90mm F2.2 (223 comments in total)

Up in my loft of things I have a pre-war Leica Summar with cleaning marks to the front element no doubt made by some Gentleman's tie at Ascot. It is probably worth a fortune now as it has that Leica "glow" in abundance. Yours for £5000.

Some people have MUCH more money and no sense.

Obviously, someone didn't focus the lens!

photophile: Finally, after 45 years, all of our old faded/poorly exposed/poorly developed photos from 1970's will start looking fashionable and trendy.

Better start scanning and posting. I have loads.

In reply to:

Peter62: Canon, my old love, has lost the battle because of poor dynamic range that all of their sensors have in common.

Everything else is good.

@entoman, Fanboi or not, if you're happy, then that's all that matters.

The only Pentax cameras I have ever used are a LX a MX, and I have a P30 and P50 in my loft. I think I like the look of that silver K-1. Have I ever bought a camera on looks? Damn yes!

Wye Photography: I would love this lens but fall short of about £1000. Have been considering a Fotodiox EF to FE adapter and the Canon EF 24 - 105mm f/4 L on my A7. Any suggestions?

Thank you Chaps.

Any more suggestions more than welcome.

It may help if I point out that I used the Canon 24-105 on a 5D3 last year and was quite happy with its performance. Thank you.

Wye Photography: It is interesting to note that if this was an Apple problem the Android fanboys and Apple haters would have filled, I am sure, a couple of pages with their vent and bile. Not many comments below from obvious Apple fanbois. Says a lot about the mind set of each. As for me, being a self declared Apple fan of sorts, I am sorry if you have a duff phone. I celebrate diversity not use it as a wepon to denigrate others.

My comment was and is based on observation and I am sorry you saw it as "moral posturing". I have read a number of articles and, out of interest, noted the comments therein. xxx.

America has had its day - the Chinese are coming.

@dqnielg, you're welcome and I know. You offered nothing positive yourself only what you do best - Troll.

AKH: "Smartphones have rendered the $200 compact obsolete, and they're creeping up on $500 interchangeable lens cameras"

That may be a fact, but it does not change the fact, that the IQ from smartphones is pretty bad unless light is very good.

The IQ from a $500 ILC is leagues better than any smartphone.

@cosinaphile, Yes, I think that is spot on.

@AKH, you are obviously right, but I think smartphone users don't care if a $500 ILC is better than their phone. Besides, a $500 ILC is probably too good for them anyway and they don't pixel-peep like "togs" do.

Wye Photography: As the dynamic range of sensors increases, where does that leave filters?

@matthew saville, you, Sir, assume correctly. Built-in CP filter, now there is a thought.

I intend to still be round in five years' time and I hope you are also. It will be interesting see how the art develops. I still think Lee should be somewhat concerned.

Canon shooters still need them because of their poor sensors. Sony, Nikon and Pentax shooters will find them increasingly redundant.

In five years' time, no one will be using filters. They have had their day.

On article Hello Lightroom CC: Embracing the future (510 comments in total)
In reply to:

Carlos_S: One of the worst articles and most obvious spin attempts on dpr ever. Bad job :(

I do not expect anyone to work for free. I am also not doing this. But actually, I bought every new LR release since LR2. This cost me appr. 75€ every two years. This equals ~3€/month. Which is fine for me as an amateuer.

Can anyone see the difference between 3/month and 9,99€/month? This is not only a new software concept (which I am quite fine with), this is tripeling the price on-the-fly.

Now, if I pay this, will I get new and relevant features and improvments every month? And I am not counting improvements in CC which bring CC to the Level of LR6 which I already paid for.

Now some people will argue, that they pay more (or the same) for netflix or the like. Guess what, I am paying 1600€/month for my house, so is this deeming anything below this for other services acceptable? Good luck with your personal finance.

Greetings
Carlos

... and the default output in Capture One is more pleasing as well.
