José B: Hopefully a new 135/1.8 e-mount lens.

Me too but the existing one is made for a DSLR. Also, I’ve read mixed reviews about AF speed in low light.

cxsparc: Ah Milano, when travel was still possible ....

This photo? No, I just took a candid shot when I was there. Would love to do shoots there but I really don't have the time since I am just visiting.

Portugal is very nice. Would like to go back there sometime.

On article iPhone 11 sample gallery (357 comments in total)

Love it! Images from the ultra-wide lens look really good. I still have my XS but might upgrade to the 2020 iPhone with 5G. BTW dpreview, thanks for the NeuralCam article and sample pics. I bought the app prior to my Mediterranean trip and it was really beneficial in capturing low light indoor images in churches/cathedrals and outdoors at night.

I like the looks of the ripstock fanny sling so I ordered one. Should look great with my Lululemon pants, Ultraboost or Epic react shoes----feeling very athletic already! Can't wait to use it while walking in Las Ramblas or Santorini :-) Thanks dpreview.

nandbytes: Too bad Sony APS-C lacks good zoom lenses :-(
Otherwise I'd have got this.

Not with my Zeiss. I’ve taken group pics with this and I would be the first to complain if it was soft since I normally position my self on the far left or right either with tripod or handing the camera to another person. Anyway, I look forward to another trip with this lens and the A6500.

Too bad it didn't work for you, I absolutely love mine and I'm an early adopter to this lens.

The 16-70/4 OSS is awesome! I've got mine for the past five years and is my go-to travel lens. Also it's amazing at 70mm f/4, it's like getting a free prime lens for portraits.

On article iPhone XS / XS Max sample gallery updated (152 comments in total)

Glad I was able to buy the Xs before my Mediterranean cruise two weeks ago. It is light, practical and take superb images (at least they look great in my ipad pro). Brought my Sony A6000 + lenses as well. Next time I travel though, it will be the Xs as my main and bring the Sony and specialty lenses like the Touit 12 and Batis 85 to compliment the Xs.

(unknown member): Sweet, I just got an XS Max a few days ago. I've been very pleased with its camera performance so far (seems like it'll comfortably replace my dedicated cameras for those times when I don't feel like bringing a dedicated camera along) but some additional control over camera settings would be very welcome. I'll definitely give this a try.

+1. So far I'm very impressed with my new Xs.

Just downloaded this app. I look forward to using the Smart RAW for night time shots.

On article RIP Canon's Chuck Westfall, 1952-2018 (70 comments in total)

I didn't know Chuck personally. But before I switched to Canon in the mid 2000s I saw and read a few interviews by Chuck on the features and benefits of shooting with a Canon DSLR system. Thanks Chuck and rest in peace.

Love to see that Intelligent compact camera concept become a reality. I will buy it for sure. It'll fit into my tennis bag and I can use it to analyze and improve my strokes. As to Canon going full throttle on mirrorless, great for them. I still hope they continue to improve on their DSLR technology. I've got the fantastic 50L and 85/1.2LII so I'm not going anywhere.

Awesome news! Maybe I'll postpone my purchase of that upcoming (rumoured) iPhone XPlus and instead save money for the FF Canon mirrorless. Hope it's a nice kit lens and looking forward to using my 35L with it.

Thanks dpreview for posting this. Along with Dustin Abbott's review, it clinched it for me. Got the lens yesterday and tested it this morning (with my 5Ds) amid snowy conditions. Very happy with the lens so far.

Absolutely love it!!! I like to throw off the background for portraits and it's amazing that I can do this with my cellphone.
I just hope that Apple can extend the depth to more than 8 feet so I can use it for full body shots of taller adults. Also, Apple needs to add this feature to the Apple Watch because as of right now it is not supported yet (at least on my series 1).

Just like your photos I'm loving the colors from my 7 Plus! Very vibrant without being over-the-top. Portraits shooting 2x are excellent----can't wait for that official release of the 'faux bokeh' Portrait mode!!!

José B: Awesome pics! 7Plus looks like a winner just like Stan the Man's much vaunted one-handed topspin backhand. Can't wait to get mine.

Absolutely, I'll take pics with it. I was in the market to replace my compact Canon S120 and was interested in the Nikon DL 24-85 + I wanted a mini tablet like a mini ipad 4 for reading, travel and photo storage. So instead of these, I'm just getting the 7+. I'm pretty sure it won't take as nice pics as a 1 inch sensor but it should be enough for everyday picture taking and I only bring one device instead of two. Besides, I have no idea when Nikon will release the DL 24-85.

Don't care about the earphones as I've been using my wireless Beats 2 at the gym for a couple of years now and it is great.
