Would it be more interesting to post comparison photos taken with 27mm or so?

The DPreview reviewed Canon 100-400L II . But nothing to compare. I request Dprview to do a comparison or review of Nikon 80-400 or This Sigma here.

Nikola Goranov: Considering the fact that a firearm or a explosive can be attached and used on/from a drone, any violation of our private properties by a drone could mean a serious threat not only to our privacy bur also to our personal safety. It won't be that long until foreign or domestically cultivated terrorists will learn and attempt to use drones. They do it as we speak around Mosul in Iraq.... Just imagine what would happen if there is a family gathering or a wedding, etc... I don't want to sound pessimistic but this is the world we live in. Please don't blame anyone who uses his shotgun in order to keep these 21st century's uninvited guests away.

There was an attempt to bombard with help of drone, the attempt was thwarted. It will be common mode of attack. Easy, safe one.

Apparently Leica is not good in creating mediocre lenses. :-) .
They have expertise in state of the art lenses only.

Mariano Pacifico: Aha! Ha! Ha! No wonder big cameras are losing out to cellphonecams because cellcams got better technology that DSLRs, 4/3rds, APS-Cs and those 1-inchers. For $750 cellcams you get:
1. slow mo
2. 4k display
3. Front and back lenses
4. 960 fps
5. Geotags
6. Pay my credit cards
7. text my Mom
8. Check my trust accounts
9. 5-axis stabilization
10. 50 auto-focus points

All pocketable .... and, oh, don't forget it is splash proof and shock-resistant ... wheeew ! Oh, it tells me what streets to take and tell me the weather and traffic .... and it talks to me, too !!!

12. You can share into facebook right away.
13. You can search the image with instagram and understand others have taken better photos.

(unknown member): Is $850 too much to ask for "pentamirrors" and 6fps these days?

Does Nikon do?
I think 6fps is there in both of these T7i, 77D .

Ralf B: This post https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/59120737 says enough.

What that post claims is true only if there is NO other instance where the camera was not focussing well when subject is in the center.
As well the player may have moved 3 inches away just after focus acquisition, so that sample is not a solid proof.

AngularJS: Great lens and great photographers :) For the price the lens is actually amazing.
How fast is the AF compared to the L version? Just wondering how efficient is the new Nano USM...

@jivagrahpy, why people who praise something, neither have a sample shot nor have their gallery in dpreview?

In reply to:

Robemo: It's a bit confusing review which contains some errors/bad choices:

1. The comparison at 400mm shows that the Panasonic focused on the orange crane, the Sony on the white building behind it, making that comparison useless.
2. Why using JPEG's to compare lens quality in the comparison tool? JPEG rendering has never been Panasonics strong point. When you download the RAW files and process them equally, you will find the difference less shocking and at some focal ranges (around 135mm for instance) far less than the JPEG's suggest.

In general (and DPR has mentioned it in other reviews) lenses are the weak spot of these 1 inch high density small sensor cameras with complex zooms. Lenses are strained a lot. DPR mentioned in other reviews (of Sony RX100 models I think) how much trouble it took them to find a review model with a proper lens. Lots of fluctuations in lens performance. That's probably why Sony spent so much effort/money in the RX10 III lens.

Very very good observation @Robemo. I think this different focus points exacerbated the FZ-2500's performance, which originally created bad performance with bad copy.

@DPreivew may please do lens comparison as well in studio shot for different focal lengths and update them. ( I know you need really long studio for that and may not be possible). If not, this lens comparison should be done again with touch screen focus to the same point confirmed.
