On article Things we found at CP+ 2017 which had been cut in half (70 comments in total)

That last lesne looks very sophisticated. I bet it has terrific IQ. :D

Hm, I like their new take though. Focusing on mid-level and high-level dslr and mirrorless + lenses. That seems - to me at least - like the most reasonable thing to do.

WordsOfFarewell: Damn, that Sigma 14mm 1.8 looks gigantuan, but still if it should bring the IQ I will certainly get my hands on one and toss my Nikon 14-24 for the new Nikon 16-35 f/2.8 - if it sees the light of day. These are happy days for landscape photographers like myself.

For the time being you may want to check out the 20mm 1.8 by Nikon. I find that lense to be very good as well. ;)

11mm for an affordable price? I wonder why Nikon and Canon can't come up with lenses like these.

RT really get the best out of the images. Sometimes even better than LR / CR in certain regards. Good to see that it gets some attention on here.

Triplet Perar: Companies MUST rethink their lenses, because people keep their digital cameras at home and use smaller equipment, like smartphones, to take more photos.
Lenses are the main problem! We live in the age where cameras shoot ISO 1 million, but still are fed with lens behemoths and designs from the film era, like, gigantic f1.4 primes or f2.8 zooms are recommended stuff. C'mon!
Which company will be brave enough, visionary enough, to release three smallish f/4 of f5.6 zooms, and four f/4 primes, all tiny and small, much more portable?

Sometimes it doesn't only have to do with the IQ . lAlso, for some, it's about the Bokeh I guess?

I wish Tamron would also offer a 70-200 f/4 variant for the folks who prefer lighter lenses. But I am sure it will be terrific.

WordsOfFarewell: How I wish that this was a Nikon not a Sony. Exactly what I'd be looking for to update my D800. Especially the in camera stabilization I miss that since I've switched from Pentax to Nikon.

Hm, ok. I guess you're right. Although I doubt Nikon users will get the In camera stabilization. And I personally am ok with 36MP I wouldn't need 54MP.

Hopefully a test is en route. The 20mm 1.8 looks very intriguing maybe the manual focus is a bit better to use due to the focus throw in night time situations.

On article Canon 16-35mm F2.8L III real-world sample gallery (121 comments in total)

Such a sexy sun star even at f/11. I wish other manufacturers would be able to offer something comparable in their UWA zooms. So far only the Nikon and Sigma UWA primes have something similar. But, I guess my Tamron 15-30 also has an ok one.

Great test! Looking for a wide angle lens for Astro and doing comparisons. This helped a lot.

Whoa, I didn't expect such a letdown. I was expecting the D650 and D850. :/

D810 killer. Seems like Nikon and Canon don't seem to notice they're falling behind.

Damn, he knows what he's doing! Stunning shots! What I would give to shoot such a subject matter, although I take it that he has pretty good skills for something that difficult, and I would probably have trouble taking anything similar.

This could be a good Samyang 14mm 2.8 replacement. Let's see.

Link | Posted on Sep 7, 2016 at 14:25 UTC as 14th comment

This looks great. A bit late to be honest, but what to expect from Nikon and Canon these days? The only thing missing is a tilting touch screen and software features comparable to Olympus, oh and a realistic price tag. Glad though Canon users finally get something good again after the Mark III letdown (that's what I heard from landscapers at least).
