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.

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.

Petrogel: Apple will be the first company that will make buyers wait on line to buy an older model.

Looks like Petrogel is talking about the current models, as of yesterday, when he says older. The same thought occurred to me. Don't need HDMI. Wish it had SD reader. I have a 13" MBP and use the two Thunderbolt ports, the two USB ports and the charging port. With the new MBP I can't get that done.

Always good to see how others approach things, creatively and technically.

The scene comes up with iPhone 7 in both boxes. When I attempt to select iPhone 6S for comparison it only shows Low Light for the 6S?

Does the inclusion of 4K video mean that the sensor technology used in the A7M2, enabling fast response time, mean that the A6300 will be able to support improved phase detection focusing for Canon EF lenses via adaptor as seen in the A7M2?

In reply to:

photomedium: IMO if every camera gets an award I question the point of a site dedicated to reviews. People sometimes like absolutes.

It's all good that there is no "absolute" best camera. Makes a little more work if someone really wants to get what works for them but so many options that can all produce great photo.
