Will B Milner: I personally think that the subscription is great. Works for me a treat! I pay £100 a year rather than £900 every 3... Meaning that I will have saved £600 over that period, what's not to like?

I do believe Affinity Photo and other programmes can fully open .psd files, even multi-layered file.

Incompatibility is not a problem.

Some people think that the subscription model is OK and are quite happy paying $9.99 per month ($120 per year, every year). And that's fine.

I have rid myself of all Adobe products and I am quite happy using Affinity Photo (£0 per month, £0 per year, every year*) and Capture One ($0 per month, $0 per year, every year*)

So after the initial payment, I basically don't have to pay anything more *. If I lose my job and have to cut back on expenditure I can still take photos and edit them and not worry about monthly fees to keep the software running.

Do you use all of what Fauxtoshop has to offer? If not then maybe it is worth changing programmes and saving that little bit of money. I ended up only using Fauxtoshop for a little cloning and healing (which Affinity Photo does better).

If you're happy with Adobe's service that's Brill!. BUT, considering there are cheaper and equally effective alternatives. Why spend more money than you have to!

*plus optional updates per bi/annum

dcolak: Helios lenses spend most of the time on my A7RII.

I just love the swirly bokeh and the 3D pop.

If this lens is sharper, it's a good buy.

If it isn't sharper then it's good bye.

stromaroma: Great article but that last statement "We'd certainly recommend the Canon EOS-1D X Mark II for landscape photography"????? I wouldn't use either of these for landscape photography... unless of course one was magically in my hands when I wanted to take a photo, which would never happen because I doubt I'd ever touch one. There are much more practical / affordable alternatives for landscapes that would perform equally well if not better.

@Greg7579

Some really great photos you have in your gallery!

I didn't own any of these camera but I did seriously consider the E-550 and remember the review on DPR well. About this time I bought into the Olympus E-1 system which cost me a fortune. I still have and use my E-1.

qwertyasdf: Wow, first is the 2x macro lens, then a 15mm macro, then this lens, with a very interesting "Magic Shift" adapter (Interested to see how it works)
No matter how much I dislike the Chinese, this company is bringing out innovation after innovation in a field that is supposed to be creative.

Quite a racist comment OP. China is an enigma wrapped in a paradox hidden in an oxymoron.

In reply to:

bed bug: Having just recently my first Laowa lens (15mm macro), I have to say that I am most impressed with the piece of glass and the company. It is quite good fun to go back to your roots and shoot totally manual (no electrical contacts on these babies).

Kind regards
Stephen

I should hope there are no electrical contacts on any babies! But knowing a few, sometimes I wish there were!

Yahoo, so that is how you spell it. There's me thinking it was spelt Ya-who!

Do you lie awake at night wondering how big the world's largest contact print is?

Yeah! Funnily enough I do! Thanks DPR I can finally have a good nights' sleep.

speculatrix: dinosaurs mating

... as in its done at a high level. There is a load of noise, screeching and screaming. Lots of trampling. It takes time for the dush to settle and absolute months if not years to see any results. Finally, it won't stop the extinction event anyway!

Now Verizon has brought all those people together.

It's going to be mass-hate!

It's an incredible piece of software for a one-off payment of $40. I was just so happy to finally ditch Adobe and move over to Affinity.

Adobe - the writing just may be on your wall.
