Ran Plett: I've got some issues with this article. First, why the 35mm lens? I virtually never misfocus that FL, even at 1.4. My 135mm on the other hand, DOF is so thin that only 1/5 shots have actually nailed focus. That's more likely due to user error (both camera and subject moving slightly OOF), that's something that can't be fixed with micro-adjusting the lens. In fact, if half of my OOF shots are front focused, and the other half are back focused, wouldn't that indicate that the focus is actually pretty accurate?

The author writes: "a resounding no" which I believed at first until seeing the video produced by Canon, which really indicates how useful that function is and based on that, I'd have no problem with larger file sizes or with using Canon software, much like I would use stitching or HDR software.


Looks like a resounding yes from that video!

Not quite so resounding to my eyes.

Just as with dpr's example files, in Canon's video example yet again I'm seeing that the effect exists more in the form of blurring of the formerly sharp area, than from actual sharpening in any other area. It bears a slight resemblance to stopping down, along with the accompanying loss of sharpness due to diffraction.

gonzalu: Why is this still not implemented by default into every single camera by now? I mean seriously? I can get a FREE Android or iOS device that has FAR MORE functionality than a dSLR that costs hundreds or thousands... Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, 3G, 4G, LTE, full functioning software, apps galore, etc. etc. Why are cameras still hobbled ???

You can not get a free Android or iOS device. You don't understand your cell service contract, especially the part about length of the contract and the early termination fee.

Odd math from what I see in the exposure info displayed:

Sony ISO 102400 1/125s f/1.4 = EV-2
Nikon ISO 51200 1/40s f/1.4 = EV-3
Canon ISO 12800 1/40s f/1.4 = EV-1

Yet this was called an EV -3 comparison... and the only one competing was the Nikon?

Ultimately, a language is composed of what survives the test of time. It's always worked that way.

falconeyes: I don't quite get the criticism which is lurking in the article.

I am pretty sure this inofficial repair center rescued an otherwise irrepairable lens. And in quite a creative manner too. Kudos to the guys and to make it public.

This is apparently what comes from Nikon cutting off the parts supply to the independent shops.
