  • I'm seeing the classic purple/green fringe at high contrast edges. The fenestration is as you've explained made up of extremely thin lines (sub pixel) and the fringe so narrow (~1px) that it's not ...
  • You also get green/purple fringing at either side of a high contrast edge. See lenstip testing for instance. Scroll down a bit to see an image. DA15 at lenstip What we see here with the DFA85 is ...
  • If the k-new comes out this year we might not see a new Pentax DSLR in a couple of years. Tech isn't really improving anymore so it doesn't make sense to launch a camera every year. The above ...
  • Replied in My new DFA*85
    From the samples I've seen the DFA*85 has a tendency for longitudinal chromatic aberrations in stressful shots as seen in those whiskers. It's there in some of the official sample images to. I'd ...
  • I've already had one, two ;) I've not read any complaining going on just some curiosity about what might be going on in an image. Did I miss something? I do see a couple of posters with their ...
  • Dan_168 I'm not arguing against fast lenses with nice bokeh. I thought my invented term "bokeh photographer" would help clarify "sun star photographer" but clearly it didn't. The idea was of...

  • I personally avoid ultra wide and prefer normal to moderately wide focal lengths for architecture. It's just that for some shots they are required and help show something that would get lost with...

  • 2) "I don't like super telephoto lenses as they make my real estate shots look really cramped. All I get when photographing a bathroom is the head of one tootbrush"

    ;)

  • It's the idea that sharp, distinctly shaped, large and spectacular sun stars are supposed to be a good thing that I argue against. Sun stars can vary in appearance and size. Reviewers have taken to...

  • I hope lens manufacturers never listen to reviews. Why on earth are people seeing sun stars as a pro. It's a massive con than overpowers the image subject and makes the whole image a kitchy...

  • Colour changes to small light/white objects can be very visible despite being tiny.  Perhaps not this tiny though.
  • It certainly could be a demosaic issue as you're looking at very fine detail indeed. Incredible that you can capture it at that resolution! The rawtherapee suggestion was only to try out different ...
  • Try a different demosaic algorithm if your software allows you to. Try Rawtherapee, as its free and has lots of fancy tech. I suspect its ca as you have very high contrast edges and the singature ...
  • io rep "thou protesteth to loudly"

  • What I mean is that the performance across the field, across apertures, and tangential/sagittal differences make it hard to work with. Drove me mad trying to figure out what was going on. Why some ...
  • Jones, I have to agree with previous poster that for uwa more dof is generally better. Others may disagree but this is certainly a case where equivalence gets complicated. Its less controversial at...

  • With my copies the DA35 is the optically better lens.  The DA50 is obviously faster and longer (fl) but its very unreliable due to complex "shape" of the performance and worse auto focus. Build is ...
  • I shot exclusively Portra 160/400 NC in the first half of the 2000's. When I look at these shots today I absolutely love them and tend to think I can't reach that level on digital.

    Thing is I...

  • GRs are great for kids. The wide angle works really well, not the same issues with facial features being distorted as when photographing adults . Its great at photographing odd angles. Small size, ...
  • quiguae I looked into it and it appears PhotoGimp is just that. A set of configuration files. The wording as a "patch" made assume that it was something more in depth.

    That invalidates my comment...
