On article What difference does it make? Sony uncompressed Raw (622 comments in total)

The reason Sony has not offered a non compressed raw is that they have not yet resolved the weakest point (followed by terrible menu, weak battery) of this amazing camera - memory read and write. It takes 2 to 3 seconds to write a raw file of one picture or to magnify a picture. Now imagine the 4 to 6 seconds it will take to read/write a non compressed raw file that is twice as bug! It is a killer!

In reply to:

PerL: This is a lens for pros that wants the special look it provides, for the same reason Canon photographers gets the very expensive 50 1.2. Of course it seems overpriced for lot of people, but they are not the market for these kind of lenses.

That is correct, but even pros will struggle with the focus issue.

On article Nikon AF-S Nikkor 58mm f/1.4G review (416 comments in total)

I am using this lens with D800 and D4. I got so many pictures out of focus that I thought that something is wrong with my lens. I placed a question in the DPR forum about it.
In this excellent review I got the answer.
When the focus is OK, the pictures are just beautiful thanks to attractive background blur.
Is it worth the 4x the price of the 50mm 1.4 lens? Absolutely not!!
If Nikon can do something in software to correct for the focus issue, then maybe.

I followed the accumulating voting results on a daily basis.
Based on the way it developed, i strongly suggest DPR checking how a specific camera got the first place.

Hi Barney,
Thanks for the review.
I have received my camera and based on one wedding event, the camera is outstanding.
I have found two issues that I would like you to look at:
1. The memory buffer for burst shooting. I find it impossible to be above 13. I set the maximum to anything between 13 and 100 and it shows always r13. IF I set the max below 13, then the actaul follows.
2. Clean image sensor in the setup menu. No matter what you set and press OK, it shows "--" as if it has been set to Cleaning off.
