In reply to:

rfsIII: Vindication! At last a lens that will make people take the EOS M seriously.

What are you dribbling about rfs? The 11-22mm EF-M is an astonishing lens,, the 22mm f2 is no slouch either.

quietrich: Techie visual gymnastics, more like an advert for financial services than anything meaningful. Nice advert though.

It doesn't have to be meaningful,, it's called fun,, look into it.

Richard Murdey: Hey dpreview,

Maybe you should spend a little time coming up with some editorial policy on linking to photos obtained illegally.

I mean I'm guessing that if I snuck into a US navel base and took some photos of, I dunno, nuclear missiles being loaded onto a submarine, you probably would be reluctant to link to that content. How about pics from my last safari where I poached some nice rhino horns?

While at first glance it might seem that urban explorers who are trespassing on what is clearly derelict property aren't doing anything wrong, personally I find the present situation of illegally photographing abandoned Japanese communities in the Fukushima exclusion zone (while making crass comments about how he is amazed people hadn't already stolen the laptops and cash he came across) to be offensive on any number of levels, and I would really prefer you didn't give him a platform.

Please think about it. Thanks...

Hey Dick, this is a website about photography, those are photographs, zip it.

phoenix15: Sorry, he is very stup*d entering red zone without proper permit from local authority. If the radiation is still there at high dose, he should cover his body entirely. I don't understand what he was looking for ?

He was looking to tell a story using his camera. I'd say he did that.

marcio_napoli: Disclaimer: I couldn't care less about DXO rankings or Canikon war.

But last time I checked DP review's studio test, Nikon D5 was clearly ahead in High ISO vs the 1DX II.

Yup, just checked again. Almost a full stop ahead (RAW, print size, low light setting).

Comparing D5's ISO 200k vs 1DX II's ISO 100k.

Why is DXO ranking the D5 lower in High ISO is beyond me.

Anyone?

If you think that's aggression, you've led a very sheltered life. Judging a sensor by comparing those ISO's is like choosing a Ferrari over a Corvette based on how fast it drives across a muddy field. Asinine.

Edgar_in_Indy: A few of the world's best kept secrets: The formula for Coca-Cola, KFC’s 11 Herbs and Spices, and, of course, the Pentax 645z's DxOMark score...

...but hey, we mustn't waste any time before trumpeting the Canon EOS 1D X II scores!

Keep wearing that foil helmet.

Anyone?

Comparing ISO 100,000 vs 200,000? Do you have a head injury?

In reply to:

David Kinston: In our family there are 3 different recent Nikon cameras, from the D7200 to the D750. Tamron, Sigma and Tokina lenses as well as Nikon. Never any issues.

Plainly CANON is the problem! They like making life difficult for their competitors - and we photographers are the ones suffering.

Wow, what planet do you live on? How is Canon the bad guy here? Making things difficult for their competitors? How very dare they! What is this? Some kind of business?

John _ Finn: Impressive specs but very few photographers require that level of functionality in a flash unit. I'll stick to YongNuos - they deliver all that I need for a fraction of the cost.

You knew that already, noone else cares.

loitokitok: What some of you guys with your oh so sarcastically crafted comments conveniently seem to forget is that nobody, not even Leica, is forcing you to buy this product. Take it or leave it and move on.

But I certainly applaud them for giving you a subject on which to practice your wit.

So only folk who buy a product are allowed an opinion? You are a tool.

MikeF4Black: So, as I understand, Leica sent over one young high potential, he was given a tour of the factory, skirting the R&D department, and then sent on a bar brawl?

Swing and a miss.

In reply to:

jthommo101: I had this lens but sold it; it was simply not as sharp at 400mm as the venerable 400/5.6. Not up to the mark for serious birding, I'm afraid.

You mean a prime is sharper than a zoom? Whoa,, I need to sit down.
