    But all these tests are arbitrary.

    1+1=2 is a provable fact. As long as you measure correctly, every result will come back the same.

    When it comes to giving an overall score to a...

  • Now that is a nice looking frame. That's exactly what I was talking about in my previous comment.

  • The trouble with these is that the frames themselves are almost always incredibly ugly. This one may have solved the image quality issue, but I find the frame itself still looks really tacky.

    In...

  • The trouble is the poses and framing are subtly different, and that can really make a difference when looking for subtle effects. This sample looks very '3D' to me: http://foto-info.si/wp-content/u ...
  • Why is everyone calling a 56mm normal lens 'tele' all of a sudden?

    As a big fan of the 50mm focal length, I find this very confusing.

  • Thank you.
  • That photo may have just sold me on this lens.  Fantastic image - nicely done. How sharp is the in focus area?  On my phone it looks a touch soft, but it's hard to tell.  I'm not really too ...
  • Many thanks. I hear few complaints about the 85 1.4G, which definitely fills me with confidence.  I'm not hugely demanding of my lenses on an absolute technical level - as long as the images they ...
  • Thank you, Marianne - that's extremely helpful. While I do love the sharpness of the Zeiss, what I'm finding is that due to manual focus I am missing quite a few shots. And what good is biting ...
  • Hi, I'm considering getting this lens to replace my beloved 100mm Makro-planar (I really enjoy this focal length), but I am already rather conscious of the weaknesses of my D800's autofocus. ...
  • The adapter shouldn't make any difference to speeds.  It simply alters the shape of the card - it doesn't do any processing.
  • Do you mean the 4.1 stars out of 5 from nearly 500 reviews on Amazon.com? Or the 4.5 out of 5 from Amazon.co.uk?

    As you say, Nikon knew how to make a well received underwater camera. And from...

  • I'm really not sure why you would limit your choice of lenses based on an arbitrarily selected (or self-selecting if you base it off your first 2 lenses) number. Instead, surely what you need shoul ...
  • A 'strawberry moon' doesn't happen once in a half century - it happens every June. A strawberry moon isn't an astronomical event like an eclipse - it's the name we give to the full moon that just ...
  • A 'strawberry moon' is the full moon in the month of June - the start of the strawberry season in North America. This one just happened to also fall on the summer solstice - a very rare event.  But ...
  • Good to know, thanks, but unfortunately that still doesn't address the EVF issue. I hired a Sony A7R2 and Fuji X-T1 to try, and, while they are both great cameras, I just didn't enjoy using them ...
  • Thanks. I've got a different focussing screen, which makes using the 100mm much easier. I'd prefer if it was a bit lighter, but the lightness of the 50mm compensates somewhat. How do you find the ...
  • Thanks, but I'm not a fan of EVFs (although they're getting better and better, so hopefully that will change), and I'm often away from charging opportunities for quite a while, so battery life is ...
  • Thanks. I wouldn't go as far as calling myself competent yet (you haven't seen my keeper rate!), but I'm definitely getting better at not totally screwing up an entire series of shots! I think I'm ...
  • Thanks. I like your description of how 20mm looks. Do you travel with anything to cover 24mm, if thats more suited to paid work?
