On article Re-make/Re-model: Leica Summaron 28mm F5.6 Samples (202 comments in total)

This is an interesting move... frankly, I couldn't care less about huge, overly corrected, corner to corner eye bleeding sharpness at f1.4...
I want small, light-weight lenses that have micro-contrast and 3d pop in abundance... and at f5.6 or f8 for some DOF. More of the same from all manufacturers pretty please!

obsolescence: Too contrasty for me. Will we ever get to see a direct comparison vs. Nikon D810?

K1 with pixel shift will be the comparison I'll be interested in!

Felts: No wide angle prime?! :(

Yes, the wideangle has been on the roadmap since the beginning... but I have the 43 & 77 ltds so have *zero* interest in these new lenses (especially with their SIZE!!!!). No wide angle primes are available so Pentax is missing a trick IMHO... and I'll have to continue to wait patiently! ;)

paulski66: This has been one of my favorite Nikkors since it first came out. In fact, within weeks of buying my copy, I sold my 18-35 AF-S; as much as I liked the zoom, it simply couldn't compete with the speed, brilliant colors, and beautiful oof rendering of the 20mm f/1.8g.

Personally, I don't think this lens gets the credit or attention it deserves.

Khizer... I found my copy didn't focus well either. Never fell in love with it as I thought I would (and at the time I was a 20 fiend). In fact this lens probably ended the love affair between me and that focal length!!

Too easy to pirate the film presets... And because they are frankly too expensive for what they do this does not surprise me. A LR preset needs to be a few dollars/pounds/euros. Not 100+ especially when these film 'emulsions' are free on phones!!!!! Think about it VSCO...

Scottelly: Why does it say "Warning: Graphic Image" in red on the black rectangle, where the image should be? I mean this is in no way a graphic image. There is no blood, no nudity, no violence - just a guy standing with a gun and another guy laying on the ground.

Is this just sensationalism?

Was the photo of the little refugee washed up on the beach graphic? No blood, no bullet holes, he was just lying on his front... but that was most certainly graphic, shocking and desperately sad. Why is this image *any* different, a few seconds after a murder has taken place?

Sorry Scottelly, but your disregard for human life actually leaves me feeling sick. I can only assume you do not know the background story?

In reply to:

quietrich: Although these roundups are useful as an overview of current cameras in a particular class/budget, I suspect the 'which camera should I buy' conclusion is click bait. The answer to that question should always be the same simple one, that you should buy the camera that best suits the work you do, and feels most intuitive to you. Any other answer is just baseless generalising.

I agree absolutely!! The K1 only receiving a silver is *for me* laughable as I will never shoot video or use continuous AF... but as a complete package this may be about right.
However, it renders the overall scores useless... unless you shoot a bit of everything!

HRC2016: I condone photography done where a photographer did not have permission from the property owner.

Photographers who break the law are criminals, and no "code of conduct" gets them off the hook. They are not much different from those who go off-trail or off-road to get a unique angle.

People who photograph someone's property without permission are not much different from those who use another's photograph without permission. As photographers we should respect everyone's rights. Not just when it's convenient.
Trespassers cause many problems, including more fences and signs that detract from the landscape.

I don't know how much of what I've stated applies to these photos/photographer as I'm not giving this genre my attention other than to show it is not all positive.

Trespassing in the UK isn't a criminal act unless you break and enter... hence 'code of conduct'. Might be different elsewhere, but here I'm no criminal!!

Photomonkey: More decay images. Yay!
Glad to see the hipster schtick is still popular.

Ha! On this site it tends to be the dull 'place tripod here' landscape imagery, so surely it's good to see something a little off piste on DPR?!

As someone who loves to go 'Urbexing' (Urban Exploration), I fail to see how this is a 'voyeuristic act'. The unwritten rule of Urbexing (at least in the UK) is that you 'leave no trace' whilst appreciating the faded grandeur of the site you hope to gain access to. I see myself as a privileged photojournalist, often documenting the beauty of the last breaths of a building prior to its imminent demolition.

mario loconte: No autofocus, what's the point

If we were looking at 85mm you'd have a point... but at 20mm your comments are not really valid.
