I like the term eyeball confusion. A good thing to think about

fullstop: meaningless twaddle DPR has nothing to present of note thus we end up with this mediocrity which seems to be the new level of excellence

The stated purpose is to show how you can go to the same place and come away with two different perspectives. It shows that.

Docno: What's with the posters here who dismiss an image because it doesn't look "real"? Does all photography have to be documentary in aim? Or might there be a place for the appreciation of images on purely aesthetic grounds, as subjective as that might be? [And despite being a psychologist, I won't get into the issue of how your direct perception of a scene is also not "real" given all the processing that goes on between your pupils and cortex].

This is a HDR photo that looks good. HDR can be unpleasant to look at, to me, but this one is nice.

taktak91: I don't understand how trading mid-level APS-C SLR for a entry-level FF SLR can be viewed as an up-grade.

By some it can be viewed as an upgrade. Take a look at the images in the comparison tool at ISO 3200.

May not be something everyone wants to do but some will find it attractive.

"When we don't like what you say we erase it "

This clearly should be renamed Erez photo discussion of the week or some such thing. Barney says they are talking to other photographers about doing this. By clarifying that these are not a contest with winners being shared, it can be understood what is happening. Then we all can benfit from the pictures and approaches being shared or not, depending on individual preferences.

When he started calling people retards who didn't think the way he thought that might have something to do with it.

It could be renamed Erez' photo of the week to calm down lots of people.

Gee Noah Placebo, I wasn't sure what your opinion was from previous posts. Good that you restated it again.

So what makes a cinema lens so special?

Aberaeron: A 24 minute video of hot air that could have been just as informative in 2 minutes. What absolute verbal diarrhoea.
Come on DPR, you can surely find less stupefying monotonous stuff than this to fill your virtual pages that doesn't sent your readers into a hypnotic trance. For anyone who managed to watch all of that, they just wasted 24 minutes of their lives that they'll never get back.

Sorry you didn't figure out early on that it wasn't something that provided you value and you wasted all your 24 minutes. I was listening while I did some other things so it was OK. Some real nuances about various aspects of the 7D2 that were brought out. Just part of the diversity of information available to us for which we need to choose what gives us value. Diversity is good so thanks DPR.

Thank you for telling this story. There are many out there to be told.

In reply to:

noisephotographer: By the way it's not good that dpreview accepted to obtain the Oneplus 5 before the announcement. This increases the risk that one gets biased (subconscious). It's very disappointing that so many reviewers accepted this. Reminds me of amazon reviews where often reviewers got a free product in order to review it...

DPR gets equipment to review from mfg's then sends it back. Might be exceptions but are you suggesting that DPR should buy every camera, phone, lens etc that they review?

Curious as to where it is happening.

iamatrix: Unfortunately so many people who praise lenses these days are paid by the manufacturer to do so, so it's extremely hard to discern the truth.

FLruckas - Grey is fine. The statement was that he didn't trust any of them anymore. Hardly grey. Hence my question out of curiosity.

EvilTed - Curious, why are you here taking time to read and comment if you don't trust anyone here?

Favorable Exponynt - of course it is opinion. All review sites give their opinions.
