In reply to:

Supisiche: I think $800 is a lot of money for a basic 70-300mm.

Nikon 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED IF AF-S VR: <$300
Nikon AF-P DX NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3: <$400
Nikon AF-P NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6: <$600

Entropy512: Is this the same guy who said he didn't get any damage at all (covered here on DPR 2-3 weeks ago) last time around, or someone else?

@Entropy512: Brain is a bit fried - got too close to the volcano as well? ;-)

In reply to:

Kopi-O: 20fps is more than enough for most enthusiasts I agree. However Coupled with slow USH I slot makes the shutter speed claim seems rather a beautiful spec rather than a useful feature

"Too short" is subjective - for some it'll be OK, but agree if it's anything like this X-T30's performance (which is likely) than not (very) useful for most: https://www.imaging-resource.com/PRODS/fuji-x-t30/fuji-x-t30A6.HTM

The X-E3 seems to achieve its advertised 14fps (but has a small buffer)
So thus the X-T30 with 20fps and 30fps (ES). Both are only USH-1.

gazza73: Is this yet another 8bit + FRC panel from BenQ just like the rest of their so called pro monitors? Over priced and over hyped.

@gazza73 I'm with you on that. Also, as I'm on Mac, I wouldn't go for 27" 4k - just stick to 27" 2.5k or 32" 4k. Personally, I wouldn't mind 8-bit + FRC either, but not prepared to pay > $/€1,000 for that.

@gazza73 So you'd prefer Eizo, who imply* theirs are 10-bit panels whilst not all ColorEdge are, even recent ones like CS2731?

BTW, hardly anyone can see the difference between 10-bit and properly done 8-bit plus dithering, including most reviewers and DPR members. Just feed them a 10-bit test image and do a 'blind' test.

@gazza73 Common knowledge, but show me proof it's 8 bit + FRC in stead of true 10 bit first.

BTW, Eizo sells plenty of 10-bit colour monitors that are 8-bit + FRC, even CS- en CG-series : https://www.displayspecifications.com/en/comparison/8ac4a8ff5

And so do/did Nec within their PA-series: https://www.displayspecifications.com/en/model/73ae1389

@gazza73 According to https://www.displayspecifications.com/en/model/5be2cec the SW271 has the LM270WR4-SSA1, which according to https://www.panelook.com/modeldetail.php?id=29754 has (max) 1.07 billion colours, i.e. is true 10-bit.

@TheOwl360 The panel mentioned in your link seems true 10-bit: https://www.panelook.com/modeldetail.php?id=29754

Slicing a M6 in six is easy - doing a Canon 4000D / Nikon D7500 / Pana FZ2500 would be a challenge.

MikeRan: Commenters will overreact but this is a natural next step after the article previously about them transferring manufacturing to Thailand.

@jxh You mean the millions of Japanese quality cars being made in the US and Europe are inferior to the ones (still) produced in Japan?

cxsparc: After watching the GF100 samples, seeing this rather noisy shot at mere ISO500 with no real crisp section is sobering

Indeed (even without having watched the GFX 100S samples first)

On article Fujifilm X-T4 vs X-S10 (216 comments in total)
In reply to:

SpeedyNeo: Or you can just get the X-T4 sans IBIS, aka X-T3, and save $700.

@entoman: "Yes, I should have pointed out that there are many lenses that don't have OIS. However, the vast majority of more popular lenses do."

Doesn't look like it to me - hardly any prime, (more) popular or not, has OIS (nor have the 8-16 and 16-55 zooms).

Not saying that's a dealbreaker, but surely a IBIS body has its advantages.

zakk9: $5,000 would enable me to travel non-stop for 3-6 months around South and Southeast Asia, taking tens of thousands of photos than I can edit on my old MBP.

With an attitude like that, wanting to spend my money taking photos and stuff rather than buying yet another piece of gear, I guess that monitor is not intended for me.

These are monitors for Covid-times - when you cannot travel, so have plenty of time to work on your old photos.

oweh: Hi Roger, great article and helpful indeed. But pls check for typos in the image captions. Or did you really test an 8mm Milvus? And is the Voigländer Nokton f1.2 or f1.4?
Keep posting great articles! Cheers.

That's why I always skip the second proof read.

Hello Don, thank you for this very informatice video.
Have you ever tried focus bracketing yourself, with a 1:1 macro lens plus teleconverter plus extension tube plus Raynix, like done here: https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/64609853 ?
