Nonsense

Edgar_in_Indy: Why bother with publishing an article raving about how sharp a zoom lens from the 70's is, but then provide only low res images?

I'm not impressed by these photographers who are happy to accept free publicity from a leading photography website, but are not willing to share anything more than low-res images. In this article in particular, which is of a technical nature, it is especially inappropriate and amounts to teasing.

On a side note, I also would not have recommended using such obviously-processed images for an article describing how a lens performs.

Yeah, why bother with Ansel Adams, e.g.?

Sezano: lenses is one thing but I'm digging the name of the company:
7 artisans.
Similar to 2 men and a truck or
3 tenors or
5 guys.

How refreshing: 7 Artisans rather than The Magnificent Seven. Will Denzel Washington and Chris Pratt be amongst them again?

In reply to:

sh00t3r: I agree that 0.01 mrem/hour is nothing to worry about, but that seems extremely low. I've read other articles stating the exposure rates could be much higher than that.

Why expose yourself to ANY unnecessary radiation? Just use a modern lens.

In this context, how does one define "necessary","needed", "desirable", "acceptable", "required", "undispensable" etc.? How many unpalatable compromises do we make in our life?

Why expose yourself to WLAN radiation?

Photographers all over the world should be more concerned about another physical effect in nature: Gravity. It can seriously damage cameras, lenses and photographers as well.

PowerG9atBlackForest: What a funny fatal coincidence: Once the room is dark enough, in most cases, the outside world will be dark as well, the lens will project nothing from outside in.

Kiss me Kate:
According to the Kinsey report
Every average man you know
Much prefers to play his favorite sport
When the temperature is low
But when the thermometer goes way up
And the weather is sizzling hot
Mister Strebel for his camera is not
'Cause it's too darn hot'

cosinaphile: years ago i bought off ebay a hexanon 58mm 1.2 to mount on my ep1.... i still use it with my pen f and fuji cameras

i love the look of it .. it is a crisp lens with solid oof rendering . but my fuji 56 1,2 is clinically sharper but somehow lacks the charm and the radioactive yellowed lens elements and of course the incredibly good build solidity and helicoid precision for manual focus ... important in super fast prime s

if i didnt have those lenses i would seriously consider this bargain ... cause sharp in the center is enough sometimes ... and the price is amazing

(at) captura: Did you know that you can increase sharpness by focussing properly?

Niko Tod: How to win a photography contest:
Find a conflict zone or an event which would be heavily protected by political correctness; juxt-a-pose someone's innocence with the horrors of war - children always provide the best results. Suffering, poverty, sadness and grotesqueness are your friends; never, ever, ever, ever photograph happiness, joy and laughter - you never gonna win anything.

There will always be photographs that touch our heart. Those photos do matter.

zzzxtreme: Way better than many photos in camera groups. Many photos I see in those groups are models at car shows, anime figurines and unpleasant posed shots

The majority of smartphone photos I see are habitually common
