  • I wonder if the first-party makes understand the extent to which I, and people like me, are building entire systems around lenses like this? That this is the starting point? The press goes to the...

  • I had a similar thought. It's a staggering technical achievement and the portrait lens I've always wanted, but the size and weight are up there with the 70-200s on full-frame. Too much to take...

  • How is it the best camera site is saddled with the worst audience? It's just a constant stream of negativity and complaining. No appreciation for the article, none for the product, and not five...

  • Not like this. Adobe's had twenty years to teach Photoshop to cheat to keep it responsive. UI lockups for seconds at a time are frequent in affinity. Earlier today, I had to force-quit after...

  • I agree with the above. I would definitely take this over PS Elements.

  • I didn't catch that one, thanks for pointing it out. It's right up there with Content Aware Fill. Definitely enhances the utility of the program. Unfortunately I can't edit the comment to reflect...

  • In my testing, it's superficially quick, but starts to lag quickly when you begin to use the gamut of features available.

    Really not bad, but it won't replace Photoshop for most people. I just had a go comparing it to CC 2015 with 5D II files for the last hour. I scribbled down a few thoughts, and then they...

  • (2/5)

    * It's very much an image editing tool, not a raw manager. You can open raw files, but there's no way to save your changes, close the file, and reopen it. Opening, adjusting, and rendering...

  • (3/5)

    * The auto-mask tool is quick and well-implemented, as is the before/after preview mechanism for filters and the various histograms. There's a proper white balance tool in the main editor...

  • (4/5)

    * It's also missing a lot of small features. Many tools aren't nearly as flexible. Previewing options that you can get by holding down modifier keys tend not to exist. Some raw tools have...

  • (5/5)

    Aesthetically and in terms of layout and quality of effects, this software is great. Gimp and most everything else in this price range are way behind. But when you start trying to adapt a...

  • Eh. I'm not much for life and dimension. The characteristics of film can described mathematically, so it can be reproduced. Personally, it's enough that what I see above makes me nostalgic. Doesn't...

  • If you really want the film look, you have to make the files look worse. A lot worse. Fuji's only done color and tone curves here, but you'd need to add the right grain for the ISO, drop the...

  • Sure looks accurate to me. I don't see how it couldn't be with Fuji building the profiles, but I suppose it's been a decade since I've used any of them.

  • The film simulations are great. I've shot with all of those stocks and the samples are bringing me back. I wonder if ACR will have some way to emulate the profiles?

    A lot of the appeal of this...

  • Fantastic results. Can't wait to see how it tests.

  • Jonathan:

    My hobby is rock climbing. Somewhere around the 30th pullup, I get bored. I don't think working out is the problem. Still, hiking thousands of vertical feet with a heavy pack has...

  • AJC:

    I also switched to Fuji, largely on the strength of their APS-C lens line. I agree that Canon has superior body ergonomics, but I can't get past the weight-- the 80D is 730g relative to 440...
