ISO1: 1 year for the camera how many years for the lenses ?

It is very hard for me to believe that Nikon and Canon had ignored the MILC, but rather considered when to make the switch. This means that they should have started developing lenses some time ago to prepare for good portfolio in launch.

LiangMing: I agree with one's view that Canon and Nikon are late to game of mirrorless camera. Sony's A7III sets such high bar on feature, and such low price for FF. Canon or Nikon either start their FF mirrorless camera at $1800, or make significant feature to attract buyers with similar price tag.

In a year or two, Sony will fix the minor problem like hand grip or weather sealing, and leave not that much room for camera feature growth, other than introducing tele-photo lenses to be the king of mirrorless camera market.

Exactly, who needs competition?

I am doing handheld "superresolution" and taking even 7 shots burst. Then I use PhotoMatix HDR software to align and average the images. It has "averaging" mode that does not do "HDR stuff" to the image, but the resulting image is natural looking, although with much lower noise levels. Finally I increase sharpness in LR.

I use this technique when I can't use a tripod, but the available light is limited.

Welcome news! Samsung is a company Sony should be afraid of. They CAN execute and they have war-chest and R&D to backup their plans.

DPR shows how its ethics are "flexible" whenever the need clicks to drive traffic. DPR Staff, do you really think that adding a whitewash-disclaimer sets you free from the moral dilemma?

You are just promoting further crazy videos despite the risks. Shame on you.

This is the way forward when Adobe has too high market share and not enough viable competition. Photography plan prices will go up too later.

It is time for this. My guess is that there will be few EF-M lenses and a new FF Mirrorless coming. I hope Canon can keep their superb ergonomics.

Jylppy: Wow! Ultra heavy lenses for "compact" mirrorless body... What was the size argument favoring mirrorless?

Yes, I know. I was bit trolling here. Sorry. Mirrorless IS the future. I am very certain about this. It was the slo-mo video of a DSLR shutter long time ago that made this clear to me. Mirrorless is free from mechanical limitations and while circuits get better every year, mechanics improves very slowly if at all.

It is just that I do not like Sony ergonomics and I haven't bothered to take an effort to learn their to bit complicated UI. But that is just my choice. Everyone is eligible to their own preferences and choices.

For me its all about ergonomics. So far DSRL fits better to my big hands. The size benefits of FF mirrorless are minor in my books if you require the same level of ergonomics.

Jylppy: Wow. This is outright disgraceful. Chinese interest in foreign media is not just casual business. These acquisitions are backed by government interests and money to slowly take control over Western media so that China's image is not "tarnished" by too truthful media. In China there is not media, just Party mouthpieces. See what happened in HK. Chinese "investors" bought majority shares in the leading newspapers and started sacking editors. So sad. I never used 500px, but deleted my account still.

We will see. In HK it was not so innocent... https://www.theguardian.com/world/2016/jul/25/south-china-morning-post-china-influence-hong-kong-newspaper-confession

I would have though Canon has sought trademark / model protection for the red-ring around the lens, but maybe not.

It is just a shame Chinese cannot do their own industrial designs, but they always have to copy and copy. I would never buy this lens since it looks like cheap counterfeit. No matter how good the optics are. When do they learn?

Macs are pretty, but the author of the article is either ignorant or willfully biased. Spec the PC as the iMac Pro was spec’ed and the differences are unnoticeable. PC will give a buyer better value for the same performance , especially over the product lifetime, but PCs don’t match the design of the Macs. For me rhe extensibility of the PC wins the comparison, for someone else the design, OS or brand of Apple is the deciding factor.

AIOs look great except when complemented with all peripherals you buy over the lifetime of the computer. I also prefer ability to do HW monitor calibration which iMacs still don’t support. And the lifetime of a good monitor is far longer than that of a computer so bundling all in one doesn’t make sense economically. But it looks pretty. I got an iMac as a gift few years ago and returned it to the shop since didn’t want it over a PC.

Jylppy: Apple did the right thing and there is nothing to apologize. People don’t understand that Apple can’t control chemistry / physics. I had an iPhone 6 that suffered random power-outs if I streamed YouTube over 4G outside in cooler temperatures. Apple’s trick could have helped my phone work better.

@ozturert, with technology, understanding is a key part of an informed debate. Apple cut down peak clock speed to limit the current chipset is drawing so that the older battery can sustain the current output. Had they not done it, the phones would shutdown since the chipset would demand more current than the battery can supply. Apple solved a real user problem and I don’t believe a person would notice this without benchmark tools. It’s not something a user will notice. All mobile chipsets actively manage CPU/GPU speed all the time. Without it your phones would last 1-2 h max. So please understand before going emotional.

On article Yongnuo announces YN 14mm F2.8 in Canon mount (153 comments in total)

Shameless design copycats. Can the Chinese only copy, not to design their own ID. Regardless how good the lens it, buying it feels like buying a fake.

Yongnuo, just make your own design and it's much better.
