It's green, like all pingpong tables.

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

Image quality of these lenses? Anyone?

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'.

I don't get this gallery, what's with all the silhouettes and the dark shadows? Further, a lot of pics look they have been taken accidentally......

Any change there'll be adapters for other lenses like mamiya 645?

I switched from Ektachrome to Velvia when I started scanning with a Flextight and having discovered the 'black dots' on the Kodak film. But man, Kodachrome sure brings back memories, shooting the temples of Kyoto in 1984!

Who cares about iso 25,600 and up, DR of 14 stops, phase detection, 150 AF points.....look at this:

munro harrap: My last work on Kodachrome was ruined by Kodak's processing of it. Completely. They refunded the cost of the film, but I lost five weeks work. It kind of put me off....

You fool ;-)
Even one day of work I would never send to develop in one go, just to avoid the risk.
