manos234: Poor Nikon..they seem to be in a really bad shape..
Let's hope Z5 will improve things cause the II's seem unlikely.

I don't see anything here that says "Nikon is in really bad shape". Stop watching Tony.

pxlwz: Beautiful shot, but the water looks awfully sharp for a 26second exposure... is that a typo?

Looks more like 6 seconds and the lightning lit the water for a momentary freeze frame.

Nikon has a lot of DSLR users that are just waiting to convert to Z. That should give them a boost. I see Canon and Nikon both eating into Sony's market share by drawing from their DSLR users.

Good to see the D300 still going strong. I learned what I know with that camera.

On a photo in the Nikon Z 50mm F1.8 S sample gallery sample gallery (8 comments in total)
In reply to:

1llusive: Nice, but my Tamron 17-50 is a bit sharper than this, as is the Nikon 16-80. Surprised the new 50 on the Z mount doesn't outperform both.

Also, I'm not sure why my comment appeared on this photo. I commented on the gallery in general. Maybe this is the default behavior.

? Your link doesn't contain any information pertinent to my comment.

In reply to:

Kirk Bruner: I wonder how this compares with the Tamron 70-300 that's been around for a few years-the one with the alphabet soup name. That's been a viable contender for many who don't need or aren't willing to shell out for 2.8. They don't make this for Sony and they'll probably never make it for A-mount. I still love my Minolta beercan when I don't want to lug around the G glass, but it IS long in the tooth.

I have the latest Tamron 70-300 f/4-5.6 (imported from Japan) and it's a steal at its stupidly low price. I don't know how it compares to the 70-200 f/4 overall, but the 70-300 is at f/5 at 190mm and f/5.3 at 200mm. The zoom ring isn't very smooth, so I don't recommend it for a lot of serious action shooting, which is what you get the f/4 and f/2.8 for anyway.

In reply to:

TwoMetreBill: With online price performance improving by orders of magnitude while desktop systems improve by a few percent, pursuing a desktop future is like trying to build a better carburetor for a car. It is not just data analytics that have migrated but video editing and high end gaming as well. Unless Alien Skin has a web plan, their future isn't bright.
Take a look at some of the free photo editing applications on ChromeOS if you want to see the future.

I will stick to high-end PC hardware and no subscription, no internet required photo editing software.

Especially for my astrophotography and anything else processing-intensive.

CalleGrafi: I've been using X2 and X3 exclusivly and I think its very good!
The killer feature for me is that it doesn't use a library.. I put all my files on Onedrive and then I don't have to worry about the library if I edit on my laptop or on my desktop!
I use Fuji XT10 and XT20 and I don't find it slow! But I notice a difference when the raw files are compressed compared to uncompressed!

Actually, it has been shown that Lightroom performs best with a small library. Library size is related to poor performance.

bwana4swahili: Can you imagine the panic if NY'ers actually got to see the night sky!? Heck, during the last power failure 911 calls were placed because people thought the Milky Way was some sort of attack!!...

Yeah, even if you could see through the haze of aerosols and other pollution, I doubt people developed truly dark-adapted vision to see the Milky Way.

Rob890: not bad. Very good technically speaking but for me does nothing art wise, however I does make me think about the possibilities if perhaps one day out of the year we could have a lights out holiday so that we all can see with our own eyes what the night sky truly looks like. Been to penn state and it amazes me dark the skys can get there and with your own naked eye see the milky-way.

It would help, but you would still have the haze of aerosols and other pollution.
