On article Nikon D500 versus D750: Which one is right for you? (344 comments in total)
In reply to:

StevenN: For the type of work I do, image quality (and the ability to crop) is more important than the number of focusing points or frame rate. That's why I chose a D750.

Sorry if I hurt your feelings. Really.

StevenN: When I check update on my standalone version of Lightroom, it says I already have the current version -- 5.71

I guess LR6 is the CC subscription version only.

Thanks. But I am curious, what do you "hate" about the new version? I'm pretty satisfied with the version (5.71) that I have. Is there a major change in LR6 that will make me wish I never upgraded? :-/

ihv: Provided the perpetual license will continue I do hope in the next major LR version there are more things than currently released to the CC only.

Nooooooooooo!

On article Beta: try out our new 'light' color scheme (722 comments in total)

Wow. I suggested that dpreview do this years ago! But my suggestion was met with no response. Thanks for finally seeing the light ...

Nice lens. I have a 24-120mm lens on my Nikon D750, and, for me, it's the perfect all-around focal length.

I've often wished my 14-140mm Lumix was a little wider, and lighter. I shoot 75 percent of my shots at the wide end, so I wouldn't miss the 140mm that much.

I hope the price comes down before too long.

alextardif: Taking bets on how many warranty claims will be filed after people start busting LCDs when they ram their schnozes smack in the middle with that interesting EVF placement, LOL!

Cool tech nonetheless!

Actually, Sigma has made a very poor choice for EVF placement. Many people, like myself, are left-eye dominant. Trying to look through this EVF will have your nose and thumb competing for space.

Don't designers take into account that not everybody uses the same eye to focus?

OBI656: ADOBE www is a pain in the a.. ... complicated, slow and to find something is simply impossible ... online support is a joke!

Lightroom upgrade price of $79.00 is nowhere visible on ADOBE www site ...

See my post below. You have to click on the dropdown menu that says Full Version. You will see where it says Upgrade, and the price will change to $79.

The upgrade for desktop (non-CC) versions is $79 on Adobe's website.

https://www.adobe.com/cart.html?marketSegment=COM&editSku=65237625&promoid=98SH4SZ3

Click on Upgrade in the dropdown menu.

Richard Murdey: No shame in going with the cheap body/good sensor approach. Your choice of the X-A2 really came out of left field though. dpreview staff deliberately going with a viewfinderless ILC camera? What is the world coming to!?

Travis, outdoor brightness is not a problem with the X-A2 (or X-A1). By pressing and briefly holding a button, you can intensify the screen brightness for those bright outdoor conditions. It works very well!

I agree with Carey. I have an X-A1 (forerunner of the X-A2), and it does feel inexpensive, the layout often has me hitting buttons when I don't want to, and the focusing is not the fastest in the world, but the images this camera produces are incredible. Straight out of the camera jpegs usually need no post-processing. This is the camera I grab when I have important shots to take.

On article Panasonic's Post Focus feature arrives November 25 (218 comments in total)
In reply to:

Dan Tong: I love it. It's another way to automate what anyone can do manually taking 10-20x as much time. Wish the GH4 (a camera I would like to buy once the price drops with the introduction of the GH5) had this capability.

Panasonic has to be congratulated for innovation. It's especially unusual for a large company, but perhaps the this department is run like a small, agile, company.

I wish Panasonic would have made this available for the GH3. Sure, it's an older model, but still very capable (and it has a touch screen).

HowaboutRaw: Yes, if you read my comment again, I never said I didn't go to the show THIS year, I said I've gone every year except once (about 5 years ago). I did go THIS year.

I've been to every PhotoPlus Expo in NYC except for one. This one was the most sparsely-attended one I've ever seen. Don't know why.

On article Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH4: a quick summary (471 comments in total)

The GH4 really doesn't need a locking mode dial. The dial on my GH3 is firm enough and has never inadvertently shifted. Not sure I'd want to hold a button down to be able to turn a dial.

On article Battle of the titans: Top ball heads tested (286 comments in total)
In reply to:

pkvman13: I read the reasons why some of the big players were left out, but if you do another review with consumer oriented ballheads, please try to include Vanguard since they have some of the more innovative features (self-leveling, etc.). Thanks and keep up the great reviews!

I totally agree with you. I have Vanguard SBH 250 ballhead, and it is as sturdy and versatile as anything else I've come across. It came with two quick-release plates, too.

I think it is a mistake leaving the Panasonic GH3 off of this list. It is just as, if not more, capable as any camera on this list.
