Scott Pickering: I don't see why Canon is number one, other then marketing. It is the least innovative of the three companies (Canon, Nikon, Sony) and is using more old technology in their cameras then the other 2. They especially are lacking in their sensor technology. Yet Canon hold the number 1 spot. I used to be a Canon guy, but switched long ago when they couldn't keep up.

Canon's image quality is still ok, far from bad - hence more than enough for most - not you perhaps.

kewlguy: I have the P10 plus and bought a Mate 10 Pro for my son. Can't see myself buying Samsung anymore. The Huaweis are that good :)

I'm considering to replace my P10+ but I can't decide between Mate 10 or Mate 10 Pro yet. For sure, the CPU is simply excellent, the Oreo is stable and both Mate 10/Pro have good screens with good color accuracy. Build quality has always been good, my daughter has been using the P9 plus since its first release in 2016.

emersonik: DPReview is the new PetaPixel.

Actually, DPR often posted the same news much later than PP.

karacop: Comment on comments: M4/3 guys MUST convince themselves they made the right choice, and FF people MUST defend the obvious: bigger is better. Boring.

But the fact remains the same, FF is indeed better ;)

Or, save some money and buy a Leica. No more bad shots even the OOF ones.

how much is this camera? Some may argue that it's more for video, but the studio comparison tells me it's an overpriced small sensor camera (for stills).

in the leica world, the fake is more expensive than the genuine

In reply to:

vesa1tahti: Samyang 135/2 is an incredible lens in astrophotography. Even at f/2, the stars are sharp in the middle and at the edges, no coma visible at all. Far better than Nikkor 135/2 , in my opinion. I shoot D7200.

yes when you got the good sample - still need to check the 4 corners for coma in AP as sometimes one corner or one side of the frame could be worse.

MrHollywood: The Sigma 135 ART owns this segment for the moment.

Would be for a while, since its competitors are MF - and 135mm at f/2 is not the easiest thing to focus manually

Dante Birchen: My old s-m-c Takumar 135mm F2.5 is almost as good

I have that S-M-C Takumar 135/2.5 (second version), nope, not nearly as sharp as the Samyang.

peterwr: I must stop reading Petapixel; it's really disorientating when the same articles keep on turning up here a week later.

but but DPR is the late one (or just copying news from elsewhere) ;)

StephenCA: The Carl Zeiss 135mm 1.8 lens on the Sony A mount produces astonishing images. It’s well worth the price if superior quality is your highest priority.

It's got tons of PF if I remember correctly, so not in the same league as the 'APO' performance of Samyang, Zeiss, and probably Sigma too.

Noise?

Now the M-P will become the 'Stolen' Limited Edition, price will be $30,000 at least. Comes with all the standard accessories plus the original police report.

I have a sin to confess: I owned an A7Riii but voted for D850...

In reply to:

Steve in GA: We may never know all the facts relevant to this incident, but what if...

You were the cop...

You just stopped a guy for a traffic violation, but he looks pretty shady. Then another car pulls in behind you.

Is the guy in the other car an accomplice of the shady-looking guy in the car you stopped? Did the two of them just rob a store?

The guy in the second car gets out, reaches into the backseat, and pulls out something black. Is it a rifle, a handgun?

Decide quickly. Your life depends on it.

One guy is carrying a D850, and another guy behind is carrying an A7Riii. Which one do you shoot? Decide quickly.

kewlguy: Probably just another recycled sensor, knowing Canon

Even D7500 and D500 (both 20MP) lack AA filter. And yes, so does KP..

Canon's problem is not just DR (6D2). I have an 80D and the high iso noise isn't as good as Sony's 24MP. Plus Canon always uses AA filters making the images less biting than D7200 or KP, for example.
