Yeah, editors do have Sigma overload called the 24-70 heavy for a prime lens. I can understand the excitment/confusion, the Sigmas all look very promising.

The Sigma 135mm has a statement about bokeh at 14mm. I think editors are overloaded with Sigma info.

Stejo: Are we getting similar articles for all manufacturers or canon was the only one who paid?

I liked the comparison, it made sense of Canon's somewhat confusing naming/pricing/upgraded cameras. I'm not in the market for any of these but I like knowing the difference. I would like to see the same "buyers guide" for other brands as well even though I am pretty much in the Canon camp. It would be nice to know where I am jumping if I decide to jump ship.

Tiefenunschärfe: Great detail. But:
1. I cannot affort it.
2. Honestly speaking, I don´t need it for my purposes.

He said digital 35mm wasn't that affordable ten years ago not APS-C.

MrBrightSide: Thanks for the great shots, especially the ones with color like the Yokohama sign. Sometimes the DPR galleries tend a little too much toward the green, grey, and brown so it's hard to judge the color competency of the cameras.
And I know that Japan's vehicle laws are biased against older cars, but couldn't you find a Datsun Fairlady or a Cosmo Sport on which to test this camera?

If you can't get a Datsun Fairlady couldn't you get a fair looking lady to pose for you?

On article Leica M10 real-world sample gallery (345 comments in total)
In reply to:

gianstam: A question for all of you guys who realize that this camera is technically better, the other has better ISO the third has better long lenses and so on: If someone gave you as a (don't sell it) gift the M10 or the other camera, which one would you get?

For me, and this is only because I cannot afford the camera I really want, I would have to take what I am saving to buy, which is not the Leica. However, I would love this Leica and I am glad it exists. I fully understand your point though.

In reply to:

mosc: I would love it if it were compared to the 70-200 f2.8 with a 1.4x at ~280mm

55-250 is not full frame. But would be a great comparison on the 7D II.

A review with no mention of cost? Nice review except for leaving out just about everyone's main concern.

Probably my favorite DPR video to date! Well done!

That camera is as beautiful as their Luna series was ugly.

DanK7: Nice article, but what's with the asterisk footnotes? These should be parentheticals which would read more easily, IMO.

Adds drama?

On article Still solid: Fujifilm X-E2S Review (239 comments in total)
In reply to:

Jon Porter: I love my X-E2S but it's not a camera for a beginner, who would quickly become overwhelmed by the controls; the Fuji X system is aimed exclusively at enthusiasts. A novice would be much better served by one of Canon or Nikon's lower-end SLRs.

If by "beginner" if it is meant a person who aspires to more than using auto functions I think the dials and buttons are an easier way to learn. For someone who wants an advanced point and shoot the buttons and dials would be confusing though. Most people who read these reviews and would buy the Fuji would fall into the former category is my guess.

Sounds like a cool lens!

Tyr-Sog: haha, how many times I whipped the car over to get a shot with the kids in the car.

I try to explain it to people but they just don't get it. I'm always looking at the world though I'm looking through a OVF.

My wife has learned to live with it. She knows how precious and fleeting that light is.

Vetteran: While in graduate school in Monterey California in 1982/1983, through a mutual friend, I had the opportunity to go over to Adam's home and meet him. I felt a little awkward in his presence with him being such an icon. I mean what do you say to him that he hasn't already heard. So we pretty much made small talk. He asked a few questions about physics, mostly about light, (physics was my major), and showed me around his gallery in his his house. Prior to leaving he autographed a few of his books for me. The following year, I also had him sign a set of his posters at his last book signing in Carmel CA. He passed shortly after that signing.

The photos in his house that he showed me went on tour after his death across the country as part of an AT&T sponsored thing; not sure. Anyway, it was really special meeting him. I'll never forget.

Cool!

Oh wow this is super way cool! I can use better instruction to use my Canon cameras for sure! Exactly what I needed... uhhh ummm I have to pay? Oh well. :(

Nice photos. Great to see this camera used in the manner it is most likely to be used. I would love to see some wildlife and BIF photographers have their say and show examples as well.

On article Lens shootout: Sony RX10 III destroys the competition (501 comments in total)

While the Sony seems like a great camera, destroying cameras that are 2/3 the size and less than 2/3 the price seems an obvious thing. Like saying that a 24-105 L lens destroys a nifty 50 lens.
