In reply to:

AngularJS: Don't let Adobe buy it :)

Adobe wouldn't like the license Gimp uses, I suspect. ;)

Gimp is quite good and under appreciated by some.

On article Modern Mirrorless: Canon EOS M5 Review (1608 comments in total)

At a glance looks like a "Mirrorless Rebel." Looks like it could be a success. Would be nice to see a pro-style version of this sort of thing.

As an aside, as a manual shooter, I dislike the prominent placement of exposure compensation dials these days. It just sticks out and I never use the darned things. Nikon's EC button+dial combo works better.

Glad to see medium format digital becoming more common.

Eh. Still a decade or more behind DSLRs.

On article Medium-format mirrorless: Hasselblad unveils X1D (1179 comments in total)

Looks great. Finally we can start moving away from the teensy so-called "full frame" format.

DXO is generally overrated.

This is a winner.

This headline is wacky: "Oh, wow... Sony announces 24MP a6300 with incredible AF and 8 fps live view bursts"

On article Delayed: Nikon Japan pushes D500 to end of April (139 comments in total)

Perhaps they are concerned about "scalpers" due to expected high demand. Imagine people buying D500s and then immediately putting them up on ebay for $4,000 because Nikon can't meet demand.

In reply to:

capanikon: Let's see this work on a fast telephoto wide-open though.

that race car shot, for example, doesn't look like a 200 f/2.8 at all. It looks more like they shot it mebbe 100mm at f/11. Not impressed.

On article 1.4 and More: Canon EF 35mm F1.4L II comparison (249 comments in total)

I prefer the shorter 35mm f/2. More compact. This 35mm looks like a short tele!

On article Top 5: Hands-on with Nikon D500 (783 comments in total)

Omitting the rinky-dink pop-up flash makes the D500 a more attractive camera, IMO.
Those pop-up flashes are beyond dumb. They belong only on Canon Rebels and the like.

yay.

Too big, heavy, expensive for a 35mm. Stick to f/2.0 for 35's.

Wow ... such low noise at ISO 800.
