On article Sigma Announces 100-400mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM lens (154 comments in total)

Eagre to know what the pricing is going to be of this new lens, if its below 1000$ then I might get it for shooting shy lizards and mammals.

Chaitanya S: Hopefully that remote will work(via firmware upgrade) with M5 as well in future.

yes, the remote will work with the pz-e1 accessory in controlling the zoom of lens.

DPAF can be quite disruptive for other cameras in its class.

Chaitanya S: That tripod collar doesnt inspire confidence. Also 10-24mm is quite compact, when is that lens expected to release?

It looks similar to one seen on 150-600mm lens which is quite plasticy and fragile though 70-200mm lens isnt too heavy and might be fine. Also Arca dovetail is a nice addition but that Arca swiss dovetail seems more like a guideline rather than a standard. Between different manufacturers there always are some issues with interoperability of Arca style quick release products.

Chaitanya S: $400 for a flash with GN of 45 only. wow Sony users must be really happy to spend on overpriced crap.

@brendon1000: have you ever gone to Sony for service in India, its one of the most frustrating experiences you will ever face. Turn around times of 2 months(if you are lucky) and countless hours of arguing with incompetent staff. Thats one of the reasons why you shall never buy a camera from consumer electronics manufacturer. Nikon and Canon are lightyears ahead when it comes to after sales service, hell even Tamron and Sigmas service centres are better compared to Sony. I didnt know Nissin also didnt have service centre in India, though they have appointed official distributors for their products here.

Chaitanya S: Eagerly waiting for review of 10-24, should be good video users.

@Birdiemaker: Come on down to Himalayas or Deccan plateau and you will understand why f/4.5 is too much. I usually end up using ND filters as the camera warns about too high shutter speed during daytime shooting. Different people have different needs, for what I shoot(animals in their habitats in broad daylight) I dont need fast lens.

If you want small sized flashes, Nissin's i series of flashes are cheaper than this flash.

10-24mm is ultrawide angle zoom so DOF is not a concern, you can always set the lens to f/4.5 or slower and treat it as a constant aperture lens. Also I am not sure where you checked the price but 10-14 is only 499$ on preorder and at that price its an incredible deal. Much cheaper than Canon and Nikon's offering of same focal range.

couchpotato: There are plenty of 512GB or even 1TB USB flash drives out there.

Corsair Voyager GTX has 256GB and 512GB versions with 450MB/s read and 360MB/s write on the market for more than a year. How can Sandisk claim it has the highest capacity and fastest USB flash drive?

@Howaboutraw: Not sure where you are living but Corsair has been a reputed memory manufacturer for ages now. Only recently they ventured into making other Pc parts(seems like every Ram maker has been doing that now).
@Couchpotato: Intel was also doing everything in house but since Samsung entered ssd market they were caught sleeping with pants off. Now sadly even Intel has to source controllers from 3rd party.

Usb 3.1 is quite misleading marketing term. That drive still uses 5Gbps interface not full 10Gbps interface.

Turbguy1: Cleaver and significantly impractical.

The wrench OD is too large to use in many applications (side clearance issues).

Impossible to apply the same torque vs a standard box wrench without risking mechanism damage (spreading/yielding).

I'll stay with Craftsman box and open end wrenches. ANY adjustable wrench is a mechanical compromise...

Always more points of failure is a bad design choice.

Sergey Borachev: It's unbelievable that the lack of memory expansion is not listed as a Con!

The phone is a PDA, PERSONAL Digital Assistant. It's like a handheld computer. So instant access to mountable storage is very important to countless people for easy backup, private sharing, transfers between devices. The Cloud is a poor alternative.

@Fun 4 all: I have had Ssds and Hdds fail on me that doesnt mean I will dump all my data/programs/OS onto cloud. Cloud storage is not the answer to every problem rather it comes with its own unique set of headaches. Having microsd card slot is convinient also it doesnt increase the size of device to unreasonable level. Its just dumb design choice to exclude that slot.

On article Gear of the Year 2016 - Barney's choice: Nikon D500 (217 comments in total)

A friend of mine got D500 recently for wildlife shooting, and its seriously impressive camera. Buffer even when using just Sd cards is insane. Compared to that free advertisement given to craptastic Fstop gear this camera is worthy of gear of the year award.

tom1234567: Just got rid of Adobe LR AND PP today
I now use on1Photo Raw instead of LR,
and the new Affinity for windows released today in place of PP.

so Adobe no more monies from me,
the LR done nothing for the Fuji jpeg problems
I have the Fuji X-T2 and the D7200 and the new programs handle the files with no problems
I think a few more users will be leaving Adobe soon

Tom G

Since many have moved to On1 Raw, I want to know how well is the organisation and geotagging features? The only reason I still use Lr is for keyword tagging and Gps tagging of files. For me LR has gotten progressively worse in terms of performance and stability.
