This means no hope to see the 24-70 Art at Photokina?

Mais78: Why DPR calls the 5DIV "SEMI-professional"?? Professional photojournalists will use the 5DIV over 1D all day, same for most wedding photographers, travel photographers etc.

I would call the 1D and 5D professional (just different uses) and 6D semi-professsional (even though it is the second body for many professionals)

Well, the fact that some enthusiasts buy it does not make it less professional...

Noogy: Richard I have a question. Is high ISO better than 6D? In the studio shots you posted, I don't notice a remarkable difference, but what's your take?

I disagree, 6D seems to be the best of the lot at ISO6400

On article Leica improves Q functionality with firmware 2.0 (59 comments in total)
In reply to:

Van Spaendonck: Has anybody noticed that Leica has recently (at least in Europe) hiked the retail price of a Q by € 200? That is 5%, which is substantial if you realise that inflation in Europe is somewhere around 1%. Maybe strong demand allows them to. I also wonder how it is possible that all Leica dealers advertise the same retail price: now € 4190 in Germany and € 4275 in The Netherlands. It looks like Leica is dictating retail prices, which I thought is against EU competition law. I assume that Leica will deny this, but I would not be surprised if a retailer who advertises Leica products for less than the MSRP may suddenly experience "supply problems".

There was already a 10% price high a few mobths ago

jadeisnow: If only the update would stop the sensor capturing dust over and over soon as you get the thing cleaned!

How do you clean the sensor of a fixed lens camera? Have to send back to factory every time?

HatWearingFool: I'm surprised to hear your comments on the sigma adapter. Lens Rentals seemed to think it was pretty good.

Edit: I see they have updated with a warning about using the sigma adapter for professional purposes. https://www.lensrentals.com/blog/2016/06/a-look-at-the-new-sigma-mc-11-lens-adapter/

Query if the warning is based on use with canon lenses (which are not supported) or also Sigma lenses

Robert Kempen: When watching the MotoGP this past weekend, I noticed how many pro sports photographers were using SLs on the grid before the start

This adapter will increase the number of fashion photographers no doubt

Leica's sales are soaring world wide - kudos for a fine camera with an ever increasing audience of pros and consumers

Using it just in the pit lane is very different from saying "F1 pro photographers use Leica". This confirms my thesis that AF is just not good enough. As far as Vettel is concerned, Callo Albanese, the official Ferrari photographer, is sponsored by Leica so I guess he just took o pic of Seb with his camera. You can tell a lot from the way he holds the camera...

Mine was a genuine question. I do watch MotoGP. The only one I know is Callo Albanese but he is sponsored by Leica. Can the AF of the SL keep up with 1DX and D5? And the EVF vs optical? How do they deal with blackouts between frames? I love the EVF of the SL but could not think it would compete with an optical viewfinder for sports.

Are you serious?

On article Accessory Review: Peak Design Slide Camera Sling strap (146 comments in total)
In reply to:

noirdesir: What might be also of interest are so-called sling-type camera 'straps'. They differ from conventional straps in that the whole strap part touching your body stays fixed in space (and thus can be contoured and padded to achieve a great fit) while the camera can slide up and down the front part of the sling. When in rest, the camera also hangs automatically to your side instead of in front of you.

Examples are the Luma Loop and various BlackRapid straps:
https://luma-labs.com/products/loop3
http://www.blackrapid.com/products/straps

I also use a blackrapid. How does this strap prevent the bouncing when using as a sling? Plus i dont see a slide mechanism.

Mais78: "...a four stop push in Adobe Camera Raw and it's looking pretty good"

How do you measure stops in Camera Raw? The exposure slider does not use stops as a metric.

Is there also a relationship between the Shadow slider and f stops? ie +50 means half a stop? Thanks

Thanks. "Brightness control" you mean the Exposure control/slider?

Mais78: Giulio, are pics 5,7,8 crops? They don't look like they are 35mm.
Well done.

PS Have you considered Silver Efex Pro for your B&W?

I also only use Lightroom for color pics, but for B&W I really like Silver Efex
