Does the GR mode work with pre-2012 Canon cameras ?
Just asking , because GR mode on X1-C triggers doesn't work on pre-2012 Canons such as your beloved 5D2.

roustabout66: Is the Canon 85 F1.8 really that much sharper than the Nikon 85 F1.8? At any sane manipulation the Canon images seem so much sharper.

@armandino: Well, you can measure all you want, but I know what I am seeing from my 85/1.8. And that's pretty damn good, every single time.
The sheer fact that other people around here also seem to notice the good performance of the Canon 85/1.8, should be a sign that in the end, all that actually matters are the results IRL, despite overwhelming stats and graphs from sites such as dxomark.

The Canon 85/1.8 is an oldie, but it still is amazingly good. So no surprise to see it outperform more recent lens offerings.

gunkan: The full size jpegs are mind-blowing.

Yep, this camera + lens is simply awesome. The level and quality of details is amazing. This is not going to help my GAS-infection :) .

Nice shot, but how do you shoot a picture at 146mm with a 100mm lens? Oh wait, according to the embedded exif it was an EF-S 55-250.

Vsbastosx: Does pixel shift work in RAW? It's not in the studio scene....

Don't see the Raw PS either, only in the jpegs. DPR forgot the most important of them all: razorsharp PixShift Raw images, for us pixelpeepers :)

On article Canon EOS 5D Mark IV added to studio scene comparison (363 comments in total)
In reply to:

Lan: Thank you for posting the studio comparison. Looking at the results, I think I'd like a 5D4 R, without the AA filter.

Indeed, raw outpout from 5D4 looks very soft, as if they simply resized output from 5D3, but forgot to sharpen it.
In comparison to the D810 the 5D4 even looks pathetic wrt sharpness, makes you wonder where those 30MP are hiding. I guess Canon installed a pretty strong AA filter on the 5D4.

dleemans: OMG, get rid of it, now. DPR has always been known for it's dark theme. It should stay that way.

I know all that, I meant that they shouldn't have raised the idea of a white theme at all. And they try to impose it anyway, as suddenly the white theme is the default.

FantasticMrFox: Comparing the 'before' and 'after' leaves me wondering what the point is? I like the 'before' result better, but obviously that is down to personal preference - more importantly, the effect is pretty minuscule.

I have the same feeling. Not much difference to see here. To get some significant Orton effect, you have to leave the opacity of the Blur layer at way more than 10%. The downside of that is, that the dark tones of your image then become significantly darker. This can be prevented by excluding the dakest tones (layer blending options).

In reply to:

BarnET: 21-30mm equiv?! (or something even less useful on Canon)

Sorry i have no clue for what i would possibly use this.
Especialy when they have a 11-20mm F2.8 in the current line-up

Same here. F/2 all the way is nice, but what use is this lens good for ? At 14mm it's not wide enough to be an UW landscape lens, and the limited focal range also seems, well ... restrictive. Maybe for street photography?
Or is this just Tokina showing off they can make an F/2 zoom?

rubank: Ouch!
The RAWs with lifted shadows show severe banding. Unusably severe.
What a shame, it´s not like there´s no good 24 Mp FF sensors out there....

I agree, lots of banding in these shadows, even at iso 100 ? Dissapointing.

Chaitanya S: I know there is a big market for a lens of this class. Still I would like to see canon replace that pre-historic 50mm macro with a new macro lens.

No need to wait, just get a Sigma 50/2.8 Macro.
Excellent lens, gives you true macro (1:1), without extra adapter.

justmeMN: "US $649 (Canon EF mount)" Yikes! :-)

$649? For that amount of many, you can also have a Canon body.

Martin Crombie Photography: Wow, amazing clarity from this 50mp behemoth. Thanks DP Review

Impressive amount of detail, the 85/1.8 surely still is good enough for a 5Ds.
How was the lightning for this shot ? Judging from the reflections in your eyes, I see one big softbox on one side, and a large reflector on the opposite side ?

That's how you make profit. The shareholders must be very happy with this kind of business plan.

Yet another completely ridiculous product. What are they smoking at HTC ?

Looks like it's just some crappy new website,... with bubbles ?
It leads to a site with "stories", "recommended products", ...
So, old wine in new bags. No new camera or lens.
