sense601: Thumbs up for including PhotoLine. It's a really powerful piece of software developed by two brothers and its lightning fast compared to PS. A real pity they never found the time to write good documentation for it (at least when I was using it).

If you have too much time, download the free trial and give it a shot (pun intended), even if it's only to marvel at how fast this thing works.

Holy cow...that is some impressive stuff you're creating. Do you print these and what was the largest print you made?

Joakim Edsjö: I mostly use m43 these days, but on my Nikon system, the AF 180/2.8 is very nice. I sometimes bring it instead of the 70-200/2.8 VR II just because it is small, light and the photos are nice. It feels much less obtrusive than the 70-200 monster...

The 180 is a wonderful lens. I have the early-80s version with a plastic barrel and integrated hood. Haven't shot it for a while since I'm mostly using my Fuji at the moment, but if I'm to get a new Nikon body, it would be one of the first lenses I'd put on.

So you basically left the EU, but gave every citizen a switch that says "no, I'll remain". Perfect.

How about a simple "wow"? You think that's acceptable?

TorsteinH: I have tried Aftershot PRO2 and would have stayed with it, but the support for new cameras are slow or not existing at all.

Ok, so I guess the fact that you can open and edit RAFs means they're "supported". And on paper you're right. But in reality...try coming back home with a full 16GB card, knowing that you won't be able to do some editing until the next day, because it will take LR 2 hours to import. The sluggish rendering has been the biggest problem since the X-Pro 1, much more than the artifacts which you will only see seldom if you don't shoot trees or bushes with a wideangle all day long.

sense601: Images clearly show lack of backside illuminated sensor and IBIS. Also, bokeh on #8 is bad.

Irony...it's not for everyone. Have a like :-)

RaghavBaijal: How did you use F2 Aperture on a F2.8 Lens??!!

Didn't you read the title? Just realign the plasma injector coils and modify the antimatter diffusor with a higher particle frequency, et voila...f2. Works with every lens.

User9362470513: Some of the best OOC jpegs on the market? A quick comparison with the Sigma Quattro Dp2 studio scene blows that nonsense out of the water.

No offense, but trying to disprove the statement "some of the best..." by comparing it to ONE supposedly better product only proves that logic is not your strongest point. Here, I'll help you: The Sigma might be lightyears ahead of the X-Pro, but if the X-Pro is better than the rest, the statement still holds.

Reilly Diefenbach: DXO is second only to CaptureNX2 for interface clunkiness. Image browser strip has to be clicked away in order to get a still cramped view of the photo. Give us a full height pic for the love of Mike. Where are the autohide left and right panels? Clueless. Zoom and grab the pic and move it around? You have to click on the hand first.
DXO, you've got a lot of work to do, and I don't mean more modules. Get a copy of Lightroom 4 and see how simple and fast beats slow and laborious with tiny buttons every time. Lightroom's lens correction is close enough, too, so DXO's utility get smaller every time out. The only use I have for DXO at this point is to correct superwide pics and sharpen up the corners with Lens Softness, but it's rare these days. Did I mention Lightroom is $100 on sale vs DXO $200 to use my D800?

There's a shortcut to hide all palettes. Really easy to find, that is, if you want to. Moving around the image? It's done in the same way as in every editing software I know - by holding the space bar.

On article Street Photographers test freedom to shoot in London (184 comments in total)

Interesting. However I too believe we would have seen a different outcome if the security guys and the police had been unaware of the video guys. My experiences here in Germany are that you can shoot almost anywhere even with a larger cam. The only thing that would alert security would be a tripod in a train station or at the airport. For underground stations here in Frankfurt, you can get a free permit for non-commercial shots without any trouble.
