Just a big, general, non-specific Like. That is all.

"As you might expect, the 14mm F2.8 has a bulbous front element with a built-in lens hood."

Roman Korcek: "Canon's defunct 'A-Dep' feature"
Is that the foolproof Auto mode for German users?

"A-Dep" sounds the way you would pronounce "a fool" in German :-)

@tr573 Thank you, but my post was actually a joke / wordplay in the German language.

On article Prime or zoom? LensRentals investigates (232 comments in total)
In reply to:

teddoman: I'm curious why lens manufacturers or someone like LensRentals doesn't offer to do custom testing for lenses. People are spending thousands on lenses, sometimes cycling through multiple copies trying to find a sharp copy, it almost seems like there'd be a market for lenses accompanied by charts, kind of like diamond certifications.

It's because lenses are not sharp or unsharp per se, they are only sharp/unsharp on a specific body. In other words a lens that is sharp on one body might be unsharp on another body and vice versa. There are at least two articles about this on the LensRentals blog.

HB1969: I'd love to see one of these teardowns where they put it all back together again and have it still work ;)

I'll see your reverse-teardown request and I raise you a reverse-Will-it-blend? request.

Quoting the report:

Huh? I can't find anything remotely similar in the original Terms of Use ( https://help.instagram.com/478745558852511 ).

SmilerGrogan: The more the megapixels the beefier the tripod; DPR did a cool ball head test 100 years ago, perhaps it's time to do a tripod vibration

In reply to:

DongaMogudu: "And asking people to invest in a small camera with the expectation that they'll use larger EF and EF-S lenses doesn't sound like the easiest sell."
I guess, DPR forgot to tell that (small body with big lens) to Sony for all these years.

@Richard Butler
Autocorrect much? :-D

0MitchAG: Where are the equivalency police?? I don't know whether to love or hate the 7.5mm without them!

Hate is always a safe bet.

On article Real world test: The Panono is a 108MP spherical camera (156 comments in total)
In reply to:

Roman Korcek: If the cameras are fixed and thus their coverage of the scene and mutual overlap is exactly known, why does a complicated stitching algorithm need to be there? One simple stitching method should be sufficient for any possible image, no? Someone enlighten me please.

Thank you Mark.

Yake: When we have those whispers of ideas, a lot of people don't pursue them because we still have to earn a living. It's a necessity, not a choice. How nice that one photographer can float through life on philanthropy and big ideas, apparently unbound by conventional things like finances and time.

@Eric,
Interesting, thank you. I was not aware that quotation marks cannot be used for paraphrasing, let alone considering there are no paraphrase marks to use. I would edit my original post to include a "paraphrased" since it really seems it is not obvious it's a paraphrase but now I can't anymore. Oh well, next time I will make it more obvious. I learned something today, thank you.

@Eric,
Well, it's clearly not a quote if one cares to check the article. I don't understand how one can mistake it. I have never seen anyone writing [this is a quote] or [this is a paraphrase] behind quoted or paraphrased text.

Oh, hi again! On a witch hunt now, are we? Well, good luck! :-D

Huh? Not sure what you mean, I was not quoting anyone. Perhaps you are mistaking the paraphrase for a quote?

@Sean,
Nice to see you here, too! I see you are having fun checking up on the comments of people you disagree with. That's a noble goal! Enjoy the quest!

On article Accusations fly over Fukushima photos (83 comments in total)
In reply to:

Sean65: The photos were a joke. They were not about Fukushima but all about the idiot who decided he would be the subject matter of each image. Strolling around dressed like a chav wearing a respirator, which would have done absolutely nothing to protect against exposure of radio active waste.

Is this the future of photojournalism, the me generation unable to resist the banal temptation to appear in all their own photos.

@Sean,
I am not interested in this discussion and I stand by my original statement.

"I don't care about facts. I stand by my original statement."
Gotta love internet comments.
