PascallacsaP: First new development in a long time. Hope they will also update the prehistoric pages that are still there, especially the profile page.

Whether you like the new layout or not, they seem to have forgotten to revamp the user profile page (but there are more, such as the "View all sizes" page). My point is: If you change a layout, then do it consistently and all the way. I like the "new" layout, by the way, and I like Flickr way more than Instagram.

J A C S: The vignetting figures look highly suspicious to me. TDP measures -2.0 in the corners. Also, one can see the strong oval shape of the out of the center highlights, more pronounced than on the Sony.

Overall, the Sony looks better to me.

Vignetting is a non-issue on a portrait lens. It's easily correctable and some may even like it and add some more during pp.

belle100: Big. Very Big.

Who cares? It's a portrait lens. Don't count in the adapter, by the way (and the reversed lens hood).

Wow, 10 pounds or 20% increase a month; that's quite a differences. I am considering a subscription in the Netherlands (no price hike yet), but the first would definitely have held me back.

On article Flickr reveals its top 25 photos of 2016 (190 comments in total)

Whether you like these photos or not, Flickr is an amazing place where you can find next to everything regarding photographic expression: from dreadful, over-saturated HDR crap to super sophisticated "fineart" (whatever that may be), and everything in between. Just hope the current owner (what's the name of that phone company again?) does not screw up and leave all those people, who put their heart and soul in building up their personal photo library, in the cold. There's a lot to be lost.

Could the new owner please resume the development of Flickr? It seems to have come to a complete halt.

On article Beta: try out our new 'light' color scheme (722 comments in total)
In reply to:

WGVanDyck: This is essentially a photo and image site and I find dark grey to black backgrounds work best for that type of content. One of the reasons I like DPR over that other site.

Really wonder where this idea comes from that photos look best on black. Some may indeed look better, but in my opinion most look best on a white background. Just look at all those portfolios of great photographers out there. I mostly see white backgrounds and photos look great on them.

Looks WAY better! Black backgrounds are so last century... :-)

Is this the reason why Flickr's revamp has come to a halt?

Thanks, it seems that Adobe outsources its customer service for the stand-alone version.

Thanks for the helpful, non-cynical answer... ;-)

Mark Alan Thomas: Not a fan of Adobe’s subscription model, but I gotta hand it to them — this is a genuinely useful addition, and a clever way to get people to subscribe.

That's what I was thinking as well. Subscription to Squarespace, Portfoliobox, etc. is around 10$/€ a month, so this option may actually be quite compelling (if I don't miss something).

If it's true that the photographer matters more than the camera, DPR better start reviewing photography courses (or offering them). ;-)

On article Otherworldly? Lomography introduces Jupiter 3+ lens (158 comments in total)

Funny to see how, among all the high-spec, latest/greatest, gear there is apparently a market for lo-fi, retro-performance, stuff. And people are actually prepared to pay for it. Gosh, we're so spoiled.

On article Here at last: Nikon announces D500 (1174 comments in total)
In reply to:

PascallacsaP: Just moved from D300 to Fujifilm X-T1. Sorry Nikon, just a bit too late, but I'm glad for all those people who have been waiting a bit longer. Looks great and nobody (even Nikon Rumors and Thom Hogan) saw this one coming it seems.

Well, be happy with the D750, I would say. I have hold it in my hand in a shop and it feels great and reasonably compact. I have considered buying one, but in the end I opted for the compactness of the Fuji. However, sometimes I would love to play with the shallow DOF of a FF, especially with portraits at wide angle (24/35mm) and I would surely enjoy the rapid AF of the Nikon, the only two things that I really miss in my X-T1. I would definitely also go for the great Sigma glass that is currently offered (especially 24 and 35mm f/1.4).

Thanks, no regrets regarding the X-T1, especially because I concentrate on landscapes, portraits, and street. The D500 seems to more designed for action and wildlife.
