Couldn't they program the camera raw conversion algorithms in a normal software?

Guess they'll be affordable, light and small.

Benna78: I think, in the last 2-3 years, we reached a level with any camera/lens that can satisfy almost any photographer for many many years to come.
For the vast majority of us upgrade is GAS or consumism.

Sorry. Consumerism. I should have checked before typing.

ProfHankD: Interesting. Aside from low production costs in China, it's useful to note that China still allows most types of optical glass to be used. The EU has banned most because they are doped with heavy metals, which makes it much more difficult to make competitive optics. Basically, it's a lot like the hit taken when slightly radioactive dopants were banned, but MUCH worse. Here's a set of slides from folks who are trying to deal with these restrictions: http://www.ora-blogs.com/files/uk10_spie_thompson_lunch_talk_glass_selection-2.pdf

Anyway, these Chinese lenses are very good news for people who don't want to spend their time scanning eBay and cleaning fungus out of old lenses....

Very interesting, Thank you

(unknown member): How many years in jail did that worthless coward of a captain get for this destruction?

27 years were asked. He got 16 years plus 5 years of interdiction from any maritime activity. Considering he's 56 I guess his life at sea is over.

Benna78: Well,OK, in the end Trump made it. I'm italian, as you can easily see in my profile, and probably the most informed Americans, together with 99% of the europeans dpreview forum members, know that italian political scene has been ruled by Berlusconi in the last 20 years. We all agree that Italy surely has not the same weight as USA, but in the end we (Italians) survived. I guess USA will survive too, and our beloved world as well. I'm just trying not to taking it too seriously...ate enough sxxxt in the last 20 years.

Not exactly a "mafia lord"...he was (is) a billionaire businessman, just like Trump.

Hum interesting but I think I'il stick to the more modest 16-35 f4...
Now why not a 35f2, a 24 2.8 a 20 2.8 and a 24-105?

On article DPReview Asks: What was your first camera? (766 comments in total)

My first camera was a Pentax mz30 with kit zoom. As a kid I used once my father's Olympus OM10, and later his Pentax compact with a fixed zoom lens. My first digital was a Nikon D200.

Well, not bad...but in the end it's another 50. I'm still waiting for a cheap(Er) 24 and a cheap(Er) prime in the 105-135 range...

Well, ok, I know it would need a new lens design, but why can't Sigma offer native E mount lenses?
