rbach44: Something I just love about Nikon:

Look that swooshy curve on the top right of the first image form the flash house to the dial. Totally not necessary and just lovely. Design for the sake of beauty. I’d happily take that over the unfinished brick look of an A9, (or even a styled brick like the M or SL).

And the fact that they are also ergonomically better than just about any other camera out there is remarkable.

It will look amazing in a showcase!

ZeBebito: I like the graphic design, but this is a weird way to celebrate 100 years of great history. Why not an iconic camera instead of all this paraphernalia?

You mean like the Nikon Df?

Matthew_R: What I'd love to see is a way for registered users to complete a profile about what we are looking for in a camera and to have the final "grade" that you give a camera based on that. For example, I'm a professional commercial photographer. I don't care about JPG and I don't really care about video. I don't even care so much if something is expensive if it's something that I actually need. Wouldn't it be great if when I logged in I could get a version of your in-depth reviews that puts less emphasis (in the conclusion) about those things? I know that it's a bunch of work, but the plus side is you'd get additional marketing information about each of your users.

Just a pie in the sky idea.

If I may weigh in with my pet peeve - could the pros and cons be a little bit visually weighted, so that "unreliable autofocus" is more eye-catching (larger / bold font?) than say "no sepia color effect"?

@onlooker I actually thought that was your original joke and only wanted to make it more "accessible".

Roman Korcek: At F5.6, shouldn't the DoF be deep enough for such millimetre-scale adjustments to not have a discernible (though perhaps measurable) effect? What was the focus distance?

Thank you.

Thank you Rishi. Mind sharing the focusing distance, anyways? I still wonder.

Josh Leavitt: Never had a client ask me: This photograph was shot with the $11k Noctilux, right? So I keep using my $750 Mitakon Zhongyi 50mm f0.95; fools them every time :)

Well, if noone ever asked you, they obviously aren't fooled. :-)

Roman Korcek: "subject tracking (Lock-on AF) and Eye-AF will be unavailable when using non-native mount lenses"

Does this also apply to A-mount lenses, please?

It seems they don't - http://briansmith.com/sony-a-mount-lens-sony-a7rii-guide/ or only using single-shot contrast detect - https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/56524393

cosinaphile: if seagate had the wisdom to put both a regular sd slot and micro in this 120 dollar device they could have potentially had legions of photographers use this to offload offer backup or whatever instead of a drone user niche alone it would have cost almost nothing and increased the potential audience for this device a thousandfold

its 2 tb for fricks sake .... but seagate is a corporation... so it is insanely shortsighted , deeply stupid at times ...fails to see opportunity beyond focus groups or development objectives and generally behaves as an idiot savant or clueless "thinker"

imagine if actual drone users ... photographers ... portable hd users... etc ever got to make corporate decisions and gave suggestions for product design and a scope ?

what a different planet we would live on .

Just to weigh in, I am completely fine with my WD Wireless Passport Pro 3 TB as an SD backup solution (except for how it handles backing up files with same names but it's a minor quibble).

On article Hands-on with the Panasonic Leica 8-18mm F2.8-4 (162 comments in total)
In reply to:

Internet Enzyme: Seems slow. F/2.8 to F/4 is a F/5.6 to F/8 full frame equivalent. I do understand that that probably doesnt matter much since this is meant as a wide landscape lens, where long exposures negate the issue and slow apertures are necessary to get everything in focus. But if you plan on using this lens in any other capacity, you will be very disappointed in just how much noise that the lens will produce.

No, no, it's definitely awesome!

"We talked it over, and we decided to charge a lot more for it. As long as the camera performed as expected, we knew that our customers would pay a much higher price for it. And we needed a much higher price due to our sales volumes shrinking. It turned out to be the right decision."

I guess we used different definitions of the word "free". :-)

Not gonna argue about that, except one thing:
"If you leave a free market alone, it always finds the real price something should cost."
If this was true, we would not have cartels and other forms of price fixing.

"Users of the PEN series are mostly male, and the E-PL series is more female oriented, and they’re younger."

I assume "PEN" should have been "OM-D" (since E-PL is part of the PEN series)?

"Can you really blame any camera maker for charging as much as you are willing to pay for a camera? These are all businesses, trying hard to make a profit. They aren't charities or public service groups."

No, not really blame, but every customer expects to pay the least amount possible and does not care about a company's profit just as the company does not care that a customer has to pay his/her bills. That's simply capitalism.
