8GB of RAM? Jesus.

Matto715: Studio 2: Still a glossy display, still no Adobe RGB Color Gamut, not enough RAM - sorry Microsoft - not a good tool for photographers.

Is 32GB not enough?

davids8560: The whole day at work had been one tedious blur. Pushing his way through the crowds thronging around Shinjuku Station, Kaito paused for a moment in front of the BIC camera store. A brightly colored sign announcing a new Nikon camera had caught his attention. The D3500. The price seemed right. At least for his modest budget. But Ichika was pregnant again, and baby Yuuto had so many needs. And Ichika talked about things in Fukuoka so often. He knew she was hinting at visiting her parents. But such a trip would be a great expense. Even with a family discount on a Limited Express. He sighed. Ichika had asked him to bring home some Daifuku. It was almost 17h40. Would things be better if he had stayed at Waseda University? The next train to Sakado would be leaving soon. Perhaps some other day.

What's this reference?

Now just slap this thing on along with that new Laowa macro lens for some street... ;)

Stevess: Soooo...... No one's going to mention the Youngnuo 50mm f/1.8 II, which has focus marks and a red ring too?

I'm just saying, haha. Not like cosmetic review is going to do anything, but the fact that the MFD has changed, means a new optical design that's hopefully better, and at least something to replace their absolutely horrible AF motor on that lens, so stiff and in bad light, about as accurate as a blind archer.

PWPhotography: Wow, now even flashgun manufacturers jumping to lens manufacturing.

You guys predicting "the big guys" (CaNikon?) will eventually going out business are being too optimistic. Many L/gold ring lens quickly justify their price, if you see the processes to make them, and R&D involved.
Even if Youngnuo creates a 200$ 200mm f/2.8, it likely not have the same sharpness, and AF consistency and speed will be all over the place, look at how even Sigma's ART series suffers from it. In 10 years if Canon allows them to directly have the tech to their AF, maybe, but for now, it won't be knocking anyone out if the market. Ll

WOW. That's some real innovation. I see this as useful for professionals too, so if the AI really works, they have one less thing to worry about.

Stevess: I don't really get the point of this lens over the Canon, unless it's sharper and the IS is really 5 stops.

I guess you could say that, especially with the massive f/2.8L. But with the f/4L, it's no difference between the equally attention-gathering black f/2.8E/GM/G2/EX. I also personally white lens, as I'm an amateur and it makes me look more "professional" at open events.

DeathArrow: No thanks! I bought an used Canon 70-210 f/3.5-4.5 for about 50 euros. Canon 70-210 f/4 costs about the same.

Wohoo! Finally, another 70-210 USM user! I absolutely LOVE mine, it's really sharp at 70mm. Best of all (not to brag or anything) I got it for 55 USD, in original box and lens pouch. I hope you're enjoying your one, and send me some photos, I'd like to see how your copy is!

Michiel953: Tbh, for trips (leaving the charity part aside) I’d be severely tempted to take my FM2n, a 35 and an 85, a stash of 400 T . Maybe my FM3a as a back-up body.

Oh, the phone would be there as well. Someone might call me.

As long as you don't run out of film, I think the fm2 is one of the best full manual 35mm SLR. Absolutely huge and accurate viewfinder. A friend had dropped his in a river with a 28mm, and it's still working perfectly today.

MILF? I'm not sure what abbreviation you were trying to say there, but maybe use different words or rearrange them so it's not so... suggestive?

Drive: 20 FPS and A9’s autofocus would have made for some nice shots of incoming ballistic missiles.

Let's just hope it doesn't blow out the highlights!

Why the unnecessary high shutter speed? This could be done with 1/160 and iso 1600.

Thanks a lot. I get to see real-world corner sharpness.

Of course the results are going to be good, as long as you aren't testing that len's flare and distortion. 50mm lens are by far the easiest lens to make, that's why they are so inexpensive. My Canon 50mm 1.8 II gives an absolutely wonderful "dreamy" look for anything from flowers to portraits, and is sharper APS-C corner-to-corner than all my other zooms by f/4.

Now, try using a an absolute crap 5$ plastic lens like a 35-80 f/4-5.6, that was even poor on film, and see what "cheap" really means.

Absolutely massive! I bet you would need a supercomputer to process those 2.5gb 16 bit 400mp files, though.
