Maurizio Mancioli: God that lens is soft!

Yes, I also like soft lenses for certain things, like portraits. I just wonder if for the purpose of testing (this super black background) a soft lens was the best choice. It's possibly a misleading parameter for evaluating the results.

It's hard to see the real gain in resolution between a small image and a large one. The best way to compare would have been to put side-by-side two images with the same dimensions, one regularly interpolated and one interpolated with Super Resolution.

Very impressive indeed... I've never seen before such close-up images of an erupting vulcano, not even in the best documentaries.

Maurizio Mancioli: Low-light video comments and comparisons would have been nice. I wonder how these tiny pixels behave close to those of the A7Siii, for example.

I just wished Sony would launch an A7 IV before this, with 36MP, 4Kp60 with no crop... Why do they have to go from an extreme to another???

A bunch of people, who have got all wrong what photography is about, must be wondering right now "What!! No HDR!!??" : )

This is the kind of content I'd love to see more in DP Review: discussions that go beyond the equipment, covering also the meaning and the poetics of imaging. Congrats!

On article Opinion: Camera names are getting ridiculous (704 comments in total)

In the photographic world, I still prefer the austerity of these names (even if it can lead a certain confusion), rather than names such as Rebel, Camedia, Powershot... they just sound... amateur!

BrentSchumer: If you don't game and have a dedicated camera, I don't see the value in paying more than the Pixel 4a's $350. Pick up a used RX100VI for $550 and you've still spent less than this demi-flagship.

Will you always keep both in your pockets?

On article Hands-on with the Sigma 85mm F1.4 DG DN Art (334 comments in total)

How is the manual focus for video? More usable than usual focus-by-wire lenses? Please DP Review, as a photographer and movie maker, I'd really appreciate having a more dedicated covering of this aspect in your lenses' reviews. I'm tired of having a set of lenses for cine (Rokinons) and another for photography... Can't wait to have all-in-one lenses too!

Maurizio Mancioli: I'm curious to see how this sensor performs in low light with such pixel density (small pixels)...

Sure, technology improved, but you still can't bend physics. We'll just see how the R5 Compares with the Sony A7Siii in low light...

Such a pity! It is quite clear to me now that this not yet the do-it-all workhorse camera for both photography and shooting movies all day that I thought it could be. I'll still stick to my Sony A7RIII and Blackmagic pocket...

On article Hands-on with Canon's new RF 85mm F2 Macro IS STM (193 comments in total)

Dear DP Review, as a videomaker using mostly manual focus, I'd enjoy having your impressions about manual focusing for video in all your lenses' reviews. I know this lens is focus-by-wire (which we know is usually far from ideal for precise focusing in video) but still, as they might improve over time, I'd really enjoy having your impressions regarding this specific matter. Thanks!

Finally some material that helps photographers develop their most important attribute: their poetic vision of image. Enough pixel peeping and top-of-the line equipment! If your eye is not filled with poetry, your photography will still suck. Camera Lucida was a very important book for me; I think it's a must for every aspiring photographer or visual artist in general.

Maurizio Mancioli: Not having 4K 60p is a deal-breaker.

Here's a little explanation for the devoted and other hard-headed: for those who enter seriously the movie-making world, 4K 60p is now a must. Of course the output for cinematic feel is 24p, but 60p input allows good smooth slow-mo; a poetic necessity for some scenes. It also allows to reduce shakes and extend some takes.

4sofnature: Sony please take my money if you decide to make a compact FE 35 1.8.

I've been waiting for a FE 35mm 1.8 or 2.0 for years! I shoot 80% of my photos with a 35 (right now with a Zeiss with manual focus). Why is it taking so long for Sony to launch such a no-brainer lens??
