Pros themselves don't pay for entrance in most cases.

Nope. I am not nuts.

The lens is really good.

On article 2016 Roundup: $1200-2000 ILCs part 2: Full-Frame (285 comments in total)

It's rather boring and quite indifferent to read comments from guys believing that:
1. The manufacturers are making things having in mind just them and only them.
2. They cannot figure out the essence of their work so to build solidly the criteria by which they have to chose
3. They feel that have the obligation to post their comments based on 1 and 2, feeling that the gear they may own could be more efficient in their work if they were more careful when they chose it (typical cognitive dissonance issue).
4. They do not know post processing procedure, functions, tools and methodology as well they do not have either insufficient equipment/gear or lack of know how.
Mercy!

You will not find any images. Photogs shooting in the grid are usually not the same guys shooting the race. Their work will contribute along with the other guys work usually in luxurious company editions or coffee table books. They are both pros not amateurs and can hardly care if you can see/find their work.

On article Pentax K-1 Pixel Shift: An update (96 comments in total)

DPR reacted properly. There is a first time for everything.
I' d like to point out that the comments of readers had nothing to do with whatever result may derived. I also would like to point out that this is remarkable comparing to a great number of threads in which we usually read some "hardliners" fan comments.

On article Waterfails: We test Pentax K-1's Pixel Shift (225 comments in total)

The title of the article following the "Lens shootout: Sony RX10 III destroys the competition" is rather insinuating that "Something is rotten in the state of Denmark"...
I guess that more will follow in this pattern/point of view/aspect.

I think that the point here is whether someone uses ACR or SilkyPix or whatever sw a manufacturer provides along with the product.
PS may well be the standard to retouch/touch up an image in nowadays rather than what it was some 10 years ago when the whole workflow of processing an image was entirely based on it.
Even in those days some "gad" guys had found out that some other RAW converters produced better results than ACR in numerous cases, I think that this was the main reason Adobe introduced LR.
Apart any results, poor or great, delivered from ACR, I really doubt the reason why ACR was used in this case, given the fact that cannot fully support cam's RAW files parameters.
More over it's rather dubious the selection of the scene shot in order to show whatever results. It' s like driving a car in ECO shifting gear change and complaining that you have 25% lower response in acceleration. Oh dear..!

Jon Stern: DPReview destroyed by writers feeling that it's necessary to create clickbait headlines.

It's not bad journalism. It is influenced journalism. Subconsciously. No matter the source of its origin, in this case it is irrelevant.

In reply to:

Grig: I don't see destruction compared to FZ1000... Sorry... May be good idea to change it to "outperforms" or something like it if you really think so, but not destroys for sure... But to me FZ Leica lens is sharper and less CA... Especially on the sides at F8 at 400mm

C'mon, it's mot just a title, it's a low bread attitude approach that even between candidates mud "exchange" would be avoided.

Too much ado for practically nothing. I don't include Canon which doesn't care about the segment as long its logo serves well.
Considering the pricing of RX III and FZ 1000, I say it's like preferring one $30.000 system to another because of an extra strap and cloth for cleaning lenses.
Mercy!

Back to the days of PS 2.5 when we considered great innovation the adding of a couple filters... Useful for an easy touch, but serious guys would use it as a starting point because in most cases the result will shout that's fake.

Frank in Bridgewater: People who make decisions on the quality, or otherwise, of lenses, cameras, based on sample internet galleries and talk about 12 or 14 or 16 bit color and stuff seem to forget that what you are seeing in a browser are 8 bit jpegs displayed at (probably) 72 dpi (or less).

Well, I am not the Superman, I guess...

Well, at least the opinions of non Canicon et such people, are rather more interesting yet a little boring sometimes, but they are opinions of people who know photography.
More subjects like these DPR....

All these are just right and smart. Mind you that a human eye van reach separating/seeing some 10,000 "colours" in a rather selective/relevant way...
