'We’ve learned that some customers require exceptional lens performance' - ABSOLUTELY! But not in order to take photographs. Engineers are working overtime so people can 'win' in the forums.

On a sidenote: Looking at the image on the conclusion page, I'd take that "really unpleasant" jpg color over the processed version eight days a week...were you trying to build a hip retro-preset here? ;)

fotobert: I guess, Penntax Ollymmpus, Sonny also have good wedding cameras. Oh, I forgot Leileileica. Avoid Hasselblad and Phase One - they do not have FF cameras. But I'm possibly not an expert.

And Fidji? What about Fidji? I read the Y-Trace sensor is great for people shots.

Mac McCreery: I echo the need for a good strap! Since I got an Optech my camera has been so much easier to lug around. The branded strap just cut into my neck!

Hooray for OpTech. They're one of a few no-BS companies out there with reasonable prices. The prices are so reasonable that I guess many people will double check if they really put the strap in their shopping cart or just a replacement part. Best thing however is that the straps are just straps. No integrated solar panels, no proprietary fiddly fasteners, no extra hooks for drone remotes. Just comfortable straps.

George Zip: Let the arguing begin

Dynamic range...IBIS...backside illuminated...high ISO noise reduction...watercolor effect...battery life...DxO score...NOT PROFESSIONAL!

Since I probably won't miss anything important, I'm off reading "photography - the definitive visual history" which I found under the Christmas tree. Happy days to all of you!

On article Lensrentals tears down the Nikon 105mm F1.4 (157 comments in total)

I'd like to know whether manufacturers also do these tear downs with their rivals' lenses. Does Canon tear down every Nikon and Sony lens to see how the other guys are doing it?

I have an ONA. It's a beautiful, well made bag. I have gotten quite a number of compliments for how beautiful it is. I also carry my camera in it when I go to work. When I go shooting, I take the camera out and put it in my think tank, because the ONA is a terrible camera bag. The material is too stiff, the zippers are fumbly and the sound of the metal locks dangling around announces you from a mile away. The key point - they should stop advertising them as dedicated camera bags. Just offer the padding as an extra option.

Marty4650: I'm holding out for the "PRVKE 21 - What You Need to Know" review.

I prefer short snappy reviews!

These are just first hands-on impressions. You'll know more when the production ready sample arrives.

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?

On article Throwback Thursday: when studio lenses retire (205 comments in total)
In reply to:

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.

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.
