Cheapo Marx: Pic #6: At that distance and with $6K of rig I would hope to read the several warning stickers on the tow hitch and frame.

Heat distortion. Just like pics # 2 and 4. It's not the lens.

On photo View in the Over processed beauty! challenge (5 comments in total)

Nice moody shot of the tree and sunset. I am not too crazy about the fake swing and girl. But then again, the theme is "Over processed beauty"...

The difference in light direction and angle on the yacht versus the sky just makes it look weird for me.

Ken60: Wow what amazing homes, and great images. HDR is a tad strong in a few of the shots, but this guys abilities are a great showcase for the lens. Be nice to see, seeing as it is a fast lens , a few night shots.

Ken60, I am not saying it is a bad lens, I was just a little surprised that nobody seemed to notice this. And we are talking about f8 to f9, not wide open. I guess, in the back of my mind I was expecting something like my recently aquired Nikon Z 14-24mm, which is amazingly sharp in the corners @ 14mm f8. It's all good, and you are right, most clients would never notice this.

maybe you are looking at the pics on your phone, where everything looks sharp?Images no 1, 6, 17 etc. if you compare @ 100% the bottom edge vs left and right corner, it is clearly visible, that it gets soft in the corners. it reminds me of my previous Nikon 16-35 f4 VR. if you do not see it, that is fine too. I am just surprised, that this hyped up lens is so soft in the corners.

The landscape shots with the green grass @ 100%

I am a little surprised, at how soft this lens is in the corners @ f8 / f9. This is based by looking at the landscape shots with the green grass.

Beautiful shot, but the water looks awfully sharp for a 26second exposure... is that a typo?

Certainly eyecatching with the glow around. Careful when using filters and brushes: There is some weird pixelation going on on top of it's head.

Dan, If I am not mistaken, you make your living working for DPR? How about quitting your day job, become a full time photographer, and then give away your work for free.
It would make you feel much better...

"He makes the Big Bucks and you don't."

Maybe he did, maybe he didn't and chose to work for a company like Facebook. Being great at what you do in the creative world, does not necessarily translate into big bucks.

On article Olympus OM-D E-M5 II Review (888 comments in total)

I use Sinar backs with multi shot capabilities since 2000. One thing to be aware of: it is not just moving objects, that cause this checkered pattern to become visible, but also uneven illumination, between the individual exposures. So, even in studio conditions, if the flash output is not even, chances are, you will see a checker pattern, as seen in the street scene:
