On article Fast and light: Nikkor 24mm F1.8G ED lens review (159 comments in total)
In reply to:

fPrime: The Nikkor 24mm 2.8D... lots of contrasty 3D pop, great colors, compact and light, plenty sharp, and more than fast enough unless one doesn't own a decent flash.

Only $250 on the used lens market compared to spending over $700 for either the Nikon 24 1.8G or Sigma. Just sayin'...

"The Nikkor 24mm 2.8D... lots of contrasty 3D pop..."

You've never seen what Zeiss lenses could do, obviously. Just sayin'...

PanchoVilla: Fuji's look good on the outside and on paper, but once you handle them they feel like hollow tin cans. I have a feeling this camera will provide the same kind of handling and performance disappointment!

Sounds like someone who never used one.

Suhas Sudhakar Kulkarni: So what Leica does rebadged Panasonics and Huweis, lets not be judgemental! This one might be real Leica manufactured in Germany ;-)

Leica specializes in playing dress up. Who needs innovation/tech these days?

If there is a titanium version, I'll buy.

bicycle snap shooter: #16: Wow!!!! the intensity of the racer with his ripped muscles, mud flying every where....gets my vote.

If you google 'pacu jawi' you will find thousands of similar photos (if not better). After all it's more of a touristic display.

PanchoVilla: This lens will be awesome, better than anything Fuji that's for sure!

For $3000 I'd rather get a D7200 and a Sigma 180 APO - not an overpriced APS mirroless plus lens... oh wait that's just the price of the lens....

Ptitboul: After a quick look at your results for the Pentax K-1, it seems that they are almost the same as for the "market leader" Nikon D810. This camera could be mentioned in your comparison as a cheaper choice if exposure latitude and ISO invariance are the only criteria.

problem is, Pentax lens selections suffer right now. Can't imagine comparing it toi 5D4 as a system.

ttran88: Congratulations Canon, suddenly DR & DXO Mark is relevant to Canon shooters. ;) But too bad you couldn't bring anything new in this regards to the table. Hey at least you are showing signs of willingness to follow others.

You need dxo's approval to take good photos? That's sad.

jkrumm: Sounds good, but please don't use the word "vision" in that way when talking about photography. Makes it sound like you climbed a mountain, took some peyote, and the camera gods whispered in your ear that you needed to underexpose 4 stops and raise the shadows for the perfect shot.

(Sorry for the unneeded snark, but I couldn't resist this time)

jkrumm, this is a time where people underexpose (sometimes deliberately) and shoot during the harshest lights. Thus the need for DPR to perform this kind of test.

Edamuas: Hello everybody,
Pentax K1 seems to be much better than others FF, but nobody talks about it, why?

Because this is not a Pentax forum? And the fact that K1 sales is much lower than D810?

Mikael Risedal: congratulation Canon, it took you about 8 years to discover/ and fix the read out noise from your sensors , and you are not even close to Sony

Like someone said in the other comment section; Sony runs circles while Canon 5D4s are busy taking photos...

KW Phua: I think if Canon remove the AA filter, the detail and noise will be improved.

Without AA filter, the detail level increases with higher overall sharpness which lead to less sharpening done in post which means less noise being sharpened too. Technically we could use some masking to avoid sharpened noise but not without some weird artifacts. So removing AA filter on a high MP sensor is a good idea. Leica omitted the AA filter already with the 18MP M9 (crazy moire I know, but this is 30MP).

kewlguy: Looks good, despite what people said about Canon being late or whatever, the high ISO looks nice, even iso25K is good. Pixel sharpness isn't the highest due to AA filter but not bad either. I think this camera strikes a nice balance in features, performance and price.

Dansclic, everything is expensive in Europe. What do you expect?

I would love to mount my Sigma 24-35 Art and 100-400 II on this new bad boy!

photog4u: DPR: Off topic but I couldn't help notice that the A7R II needs an update in your STS. Kindly re-shoot the A7R II Studio Test Scene with either the Sony 85mm 1.4 G or the new Sony/Zeiss 50mm 1.4 ZA. Although still a great lens, the 55 1.8 has become outclassed by its brethren.

It only means, Sony needs to use the super high tech pro-caliber high dollar new lens with the transformers-like naming and unimaginably large girth (read G Master 85/1.4) to (slightly) surpass Canon's 20 yo 85mm lens. And yes, the 85 at 5.6 is just excellent ;)

Must be Nikon, since the lenses are generally less sharp....
