GIALLO63: I'm disappointed. I use Lexar cards since 2004 with many different cameras and system, and no one issue or problem never happened.

I sign this. Never ever yet an error with Lexar CF or SD Cards, but already 2 Sandisk SD Cards that failed me all over the years.

Tamron, now it's really about time to release also a 17-50/2.8 G2, or better being said: 16-55/2.8 G2!

On article OnePlus 5 camera sample gallery (106 comments in total)

worthless. < Grade F. 20 MP and 16 MP, both have way too much MP over the top, on such a small sensor. Have fun with aquarell-like paintings, when zooming to 100%, and no bright light. i am sure, the image processing algorithms can rescue something, but also only cooking with water. means: IQ is worse compared to old, good 1/7" sensors with 10 MP...about 5+ years ago.

Who wants this kind of "photos"?! When do companies like OnePlus learn, Megapixels aren't everything? They must still think, buyers aren't smart, dumb, and only looking about the MP count....

SushiEater: Not buying Sigma even though I am a big Sigma fan. Upcoming G2 Tamron will be better in all aspects, weather sealed, better VC, faster focusing better warranty and possible better price. I have Tamron 24-70mm VC and it is excellent already.

Tamron 24-70 2.8 VC G2 is rumored to cost also 1299 USD, exacty the same as the Sigma 24-70/2.8 OS HSM ART. I'd like to see a 1:1 Comparsion between these two - that means Review. :-)

In reply to:

marc petzold: Sorry to interrupt here, but....again, another D7500 article? It seems this time, this D7500 would get the Gold Award...Nikon should better developing fast and affordable DX prime lenses, like a 23/1.8 DX (35mm in FF- terms) which i say for years....and the same for let's say 24mm, 85mm & 100mm or 135mm Format (FF-equal).

And also not again another one of these endless 18-55 iterations, instead a 16-50/3.5-5.6 or 16-55/3.5-5,6 sharp & contrasty, low budget kitlens would have been way more better..

Nikon also should release finally the D750 & D810 Successor to the crowd within this year, in oder to stay profitable...people are changing brands...mostly to Sony, it seems.

@HowAboutRAW
yes, i do meant the GearHeads. I am no one, also not being a Pixelpeeper myself. That's why i still like, love & enjoy shooting my way old 5D. ;-) I don't care about DxOMark.

Because you mentioned the D750 - the D700, being released into 2008, is also still a very capable and nice FF DSLR, and so is the 5D.

@io_bg
Nikon does have the 17-55/2.8 DX, since 2004 already, but it is a) very huge, big lens, and b) way expensive and finally showing it's age.

I meant, just a typical "slow speed" kitlens with 24mm (16mm in DX terms) Zoom starting focal range would be way better than these usual 18-55's, which are too many iterations already. ;-)

Good Light !
Marc

On article Nikon D7500 vs Canon EOS 80D (265 comments in total)

One can't compare the 7D II vs. the D7500 consumer, the 7D II is semipro i'd say - the match here from Nikon is the D500, and vs. the 7D II, the D500 wins, period. ;-)

I have the Sigma 30/1.4 ART (APS-C) on my D7000...it can't compete with the Sigma 35/1.4 (FF-Lens) in image quality terms, and it's way huge, bulky...in fact, not so much better than the 35/1.8 AF-S DX Nikon, which is small & handy, but way bigger then this Samyang 35 2.8 AF FE here.

I do think Samyang would hit a home run with this Lens - some sources onto the Net say, it can compete with the 35/2.8 FE Sony Zeiss, and it's way small, even about 15gr. lighter, and way cheaper.

The perfect all-around Lens for my A7...i have considered the Fuji 23mm F2 for my X-E1, but this Samyang for my A7 looks now as the better deal...even it's not being weather-sealed...a perfect walk around combo with the small A7...
well, perhaps for xmas, i'd consider buying it for myself. :-)

On article Fujifilm X-A3 added to studio scene comparison (103 comments in total)
In reply to:

OlyPent: Choice is clear, at least with this result, X-Trans = slightly less sharp and less resolution and good moire control versus sharper with the Bayer but with moire.

OlyPent, physical not possible (Bayer CFA sharper than X-Trans) - do you know, X-Trans Fujifilm Sensors doesn't feature a AA Filter? Look at Iridident X-Trans, to see the true Image Quality of Fujifilm X-Trans Sensor RAW Files - then compare to ordinary Bayer CFA Sensors. As somebody mentioned before - if the Bayer Sensor Image appears to look sharper, it does have some internal sharping processing algorithms being made inside the camera before the Output. I like my E1, and wouldn't depart with it.

Posted before into the 3rd Party Lenses Forum... ;-)
My prefered focal length. Hopefully, IQ as good as the Sony Zeiss 35/2.8...for much less of the price. MTF looks okay.

I've signed it just now, Using the Nik Collection for years, and there is no real competition, not from OnOne, not from Topaz Labs, Alien Skin or whatever Software Maker - period.

On article Video: Nikon D7500 first look (416 comments in total)

I don't want to crush the Party here, but the D7500 is also a drawback compared to the D7200 (into some ways), which there are for instance - only 1 (ONE!!!) SD Card Slot, the D7000, D7100 & D7200 had two - very nice for backup purposes or simply RAW/JPEG Mode (useful on weddings), then a polycarbonate Body, no more alu-mag alloy partly like all 3 others (D7000 up to D7200), the Eyecup from the D7500 is a joke compared to the older ones, too...and last, but least...what good is a better AF Module Sensor, when from these 51 AF Points, only the central one goes down to -3EV?! The D7200 have had all 51 AF Points going down to -3EV, and DPR stated this into the D7200 Review clearly.

So, for me, even the Sensor is from the D500, but that's neglible compared to the 24 MP D7200 Sensor, the AF System is both up & downgraded at the same time, the D7500 does now 4k (but Sony/Pana are way better when it comes to video, period)...the D7500 seems like a bit upgraded D5600, but nowhere D7x00 Class.

Nikon finally realized, Canon does have the optically great & also cheap 10-18 STM, a lens now that at least into germany retails for as low as around ~221 EUR currently, with IS...means Image Stabilizer. So, Nikon isn't new with their VR onto a cheap Ultra Wide DX Lens.

The Lens Body basically looks like - Managment: Hurry, we need a cheap UW Lens for DX Users!! R/D Team: Easy Guys, just take the 18-55 DX AF-P Kitlens, and integrate the new Optics! It looks like that...the Lens Ring Part really doesn't fit optically from the apperance to this Lens Barrel...but anyway, if it's being good enough...why not. I went to Canon APS-C, because Nikon never have had a cheap UltraWide before - so i use my 40D, 50D with the 10-18 STM ...or even 30D, and it delivers. :-)

Current Price into germany for the Nikon Version: Around 380 EUR..so more than 150 bucks more than the Canon 10-18 STM. I paid around 340 EUR for mine back then....

Now Nikon, 23mm/F1.8 DX, hurry up! (35mm in FF-terms!)

On article Sigma SD Quattro H Review (692 comments in total)

Foveon-based Sensor Cameras are best being used at base ISO, which is ISO 100 ordinary. :-) Since the SD9, DP original Series - we do all know this fact.

.edited. cool Mustang, i'd wish for having this car into black - or a 68 Corvette Stingray. Nothing more, nothing less. :-)

On article Google will no longer develop Nik Collection (389 comments in total)

The Google Nik Collection *should* and must go the route like LightZone, it should be OpenSource, and further being developed by the Community. It's such a shame, *if* Google would let it fade away, just like it is...currently, since last march no more Updates, and now being abandoned...Nik Software PS Plugins have been the 1st, way better than Topaz, and all the others, and Nik Silver Efex Pro and also Color Efex Pro have been the 1st of their kind, ever...just to name a few, then came all the Copykatz, Topaz Black & White Effects, OnOne Perfect B&W, and all the others...years later, after Nik Software inventioned it...pure Copykatz...even if they're different...but somehow equal...and Nik does have it's famous U-Point Tech, something no other PlugIn Maker does have....the Motto from Nik Sofrware was: Photography first! And that way it should be...period.

Hope the Community would solve this Problem, and would develop it further, i hope Google would give the Sourcecode out there...

On article Google will no longer develop Nik Collection (389 comments in total)

That was so clear like Amen into the Church. I've bought the full Suite, was upset last march when Google have it for DL for free for anyone - and imagined since then, it's done! The great, famous (Google) Nik Collection is dead - or even earlier, when Google acquired Nik Software - was my 1st thought....because it's always being like this, often with Stuff Google bought and later abandoned it ("Picasa", etc..)

Google only wanted Snapseed, because long before Snapseed was being avialable for mobile, they've had a Desktop Version. I do know & use Nik Color Efex, Silver Efex Pro since 1.0....
