mainger: For a one-off $50, this is very tempting indeed. Great to know that some "independent" developers are releasing such complete packages.

@Ken Aisin

"Adobe's subscription based bullsh!t" netted them record profits two quarters in a row. I don't like it, but it's certainly very successful!

Apple should buy it. That way, they could add the red dot next to their camera lens and nobody would complain about the price of the iPhone X :D

Peter_Birch: Gave up after 23 secs. His voice gave me a headache like listening to a road drill. Why does he try to fit millions of words into 6mins?. Slow down dude and give me one tip.

Amen to that. 75% of what he says can be cut out and the actual content of the video would still be the exact same.

Nic Planarchy: No feedback,bizarre examples, in geenral very poor test/survey. Gave up half way through.

Feedback comes at the end (as was stated in the instructions you didn't read).

I'm sorry, how exactly did they make these drop "kick" the vertical sandbag? CGI methinks.

In reply to:

JamesD28: So, does the 28mm F/2 with the fisheye converter turn it into a 16mm F/1.1? Or is the converter designed so it stays at f/2?

Converters don't normally change the aperture.

In reply to:

mainger: Very nice work, though I wish there was little more variety of compositions.

Perhaps my impression is a result of the order in which the photos are presented. Browsing from 8 to 12 feels very repetitive.
But honestly, they're all well composed, well exposed, and showcase the beauty of the place really well.

In reply to:

KameraFever: The real reason to buy this lens to have a 50mm equivalent with leaf shutter flash flash sync. That is the reason alone I will get the teleconverter.

Yes. Though the built in flash will cast a huge shadow with that converter.

ecka84: I really expected Sigma to go mirrorless, not hipster. Well, it may be a good thing :).
It should be very comfortable for left-handed people taking selfies :).

I haven't seen any left-handed DSLRs...

That's not a solution that is available in many countries, unfortunately.
