AbrasiveReducer: Interesting in that Canon already does an amazing job with CA.

Whatever you want to criticize about Canon, there are two things they do really well; sell more cameras than anybody else and make wide angle lenses with very low chromatic aberration.

Add Marketing to that list, though potentially drop 'sell more cameras than anybody else'. Too much of a blanket statement that I don't think holds across the term 'cameras'.

70-200mm f/4 FE, perhaps?

In reply to:

bhollis: My favorite of the bunch. Very nice.

Thank you :) It's still one of my favorites to this day, though my photography has more depth and technique, it's hard to beat being at the right place at the right time and somehow pulling off the technical aspects needed.

jhinkey: OK Nikon, now you just have to make a 24/1.8 and then you can get on to more important matters:
16/2.8 AFS fisheye
20/2.8 AFS
45/2.8 AFS (compact please)
135/1.8AFS
400/5.6AFS VR
and then you'll get some of my cash.

Why not a 135mm f/1.8, goshigoo? Zeiss made an AF one for the sony A mount, so it's not like it can't be done, and done well.

AndreyT: At first one wonders what was the point of reposting these images again, after we have seen them hundreds of times already (they were making rounds around the Net for a few years now). But then one notices that there's an obvious political bias in the selection of these images: out of all those well-known Lego photo recreation pictures only the ones were cherry picked that fit certain propaganda-censorship agenda. And then a few "neutral" pictures were added to masquerade the original intent. Apparently someone at "dpreview staff" saw this veiled trolling opportunity and took it.

And the moon landing was faked, too. Whaaaat. It sounds like you must love conspiracy theories :)

On article SmugMug launches totally redesigned website (69 comments in total)

I'm enjoying the update, even for my $40 basic account. Looks much better than it did before. However, though more attractive, the interface is a little laggy and not entirely intuitive (though that hasn't changed).

acidic: I just noticed the weight. 810g for APS-C lens? Holy Shatner!

Okay, I know it's super fast and all that, but if it's seriously supposed to convince FF shooters to go APS-C, it's measly 2x zoom range isn't helping any, considering that it's FF counterparts don't weigh much more and have closer to 3x zoom range. Of course if it's significantly cheaper, say in the $900 range, it could be a winner.

Even if it has a decent weight to it, if the image quality is on par with the 35mm f/1.4, it'll be like carrying around a 28mm f/1.8, 35mm f/1.8, and 50mm f/1.8 (for light gathering capacities, not DOF, as it'd be f/2.7 for DOF, but still.) I'd be very interested if I wasn't shooting FF.

facedodge: I don't like the way the A99 flips out... they should copy the Canon way of doing it.

I think all of the above are too easily damaged for my taste, however the Sony method currently gives you far more angles of use than the Canon method.
