I've done this comparison myself, after almost 30 years of working with Apple, I've reached a point where maybe, just maybe I should give Windows a chance.....
Sorry NO, keyboard, trackpad, ssd-speed (read/write) and last but not least the display make the Macbook a true winner over the Dell. So, okay it's more expensive, but what's the Dell worth in 3 years from now? Besides, the difference is not even a days work.....

martuyn: No thanks, I'll buy a car.

Where can you get good car that will work for years with little need of repair for 6000usd?......come over to Holland, it will buy you TWO cars!

I got a '99 Nissan Pathfinder 3 years ago for 3200 euros..it still runs as new and never let me down so far.......

Rutgerbus: Need to level out the horizon! But great picture it is!

It does seem like the horizon isn't level, but I guess it's because the photo is off balance. The right side of the image is heavier,therefor the photo looks like it's tilting over to that side......

So, assuming I shoot f5.6-f11 all the time, should I trade in my Sigma 35mm f1.4
for this 24-70?

even my daughter could have made some nice pics with her iPhone in a setting like this.....the real challenge would have been: here's a space, a model, a background some gear and a (flash)light package, go ahead and put everything together and shoot!

It's green, like all pingpong tables.

Hmmm, how about stitching a 24 or even 35mm?

OlyPent: Wouldn't adapt lesser lenses to such a camera. It's like someone who buys a $100,000 car that's diesel powered. False economy and stupid.

Government pressure to produce low-emission diesel engines for passenger vehicles, trucks, buses, and farm and construction equipment has resulted not only in low-sulfur diesel fuels but also specialized catalytic converters, advanced filters, and other devices to cut down or destroy toxic emissions.

Mercedes-Benz holds the longevity record with several vehicles clocking more than 900,000 miles on their original engines! You may not want to hang onto the same vehicle for 900,000 miles, but longevity and dependability like that can sure help with trade-in and resale values. Because of the way it burns fuel, a diesel engine provides far more torque to the driveshaft than does a gasoline engine. As a result, most modern diesel passenger cars are much faster from a standing start than their gas-powered counterparts. What’s more, diesel-powered trucks, SUVs, and cars also can out-tow gas-powered vehicles while still delivering that improved fuel economy. Diesel technology is constantly being improved.

Oly, who's stupid?
Diesel fuel is one of the most efficient and energy dense fuels available today. Because it contains more usable energy than gasoline, it delivers better fuel economy. Diesels have no spark plugs or distributors. Therefore, they never need ignition tune-ups. Diesel engines are built more ruggedly to withstand the rigors of higher compression. Consequently, they usually go much longer than gas-powered vehicles before they require major repairs.

Ever heard of the Audi R8 V12 diesel?

On article Nikon PC Nikkor 19mm F4E sample gallery (87 comments in total)

Nice, although a bit soft. It lacks real sharpness (like my PC-E 24mm). I wonder, is it that better compared to corrected (in PS) images from a prime lens ? And is it's price justified in that regard?

In reply to:

OlyPent: How many people reading this think it means speed and not just depth of field?
On APS: "With an equivalent focal length of 136mm and an equivalent aperture of F2.2"
But feel free to expose as if it was f/2.2, you'll have every shot overexposed by more than a stop.

I do, speed is what matters to me, not DOF. the bigger the opening, the brighter the viewfinder.....coming from the film era, I hate using small aperture lenses.

digilux: I'm afraid most people who are in the market for this kind of gear haven't even heard of dpreview, or might just not be interested in techtalk. I have a friend that bought a D-lux, assuming it must be beter than Panasonic because it was more expensive.......

Reading is an art, I'm not saying this lens is a Panasonic.
I' mean There's just people that buy blindly, assuming stuff for the wrong reasons. Ever been to Leica in London? They've got an espresso machine bigger than any coffeebar in Milano. You have to ring the doorbell to get in.....it's not for photographers, it's for the 'happy few'.
