On article Hands-on with the Sigma 85mm F1.4 DG DN Art (165 comments in total)

The L system badly needed this lens. Sort of like the Fiat 500 for Fiat's fortunes.

Very nice set of images, but not seeing any real 'pop' Is contrast lacking? I think some similar samples on the S1R would be interesting. . .

Amir Menahem: You need to be very stupid to expect this camera will be a replacement to a red/c300/fs5/7... why do you make this kind of reviews and making hype about heating?? Its making this website amateurish.
And Exploits Beginner photographers foolishness that don’t know really how the industry work.
Serious videographers work with video camera! Commercial only get photographed with pro video camera.
This is so lame of you dpreview. Im so sorry that i can see only pr stuff here that
Detached from reality!! Wedding photographer will be just fine with 1080p or the regular 4k. Interview also!!
Commercial beauty/fashion/food stuff will be using only pro gear.
Why no talk about how canon kicking the ass of all photography industry and made the best camera in the world and have the best glass in the industry (exept phase one and Hasselblad. Nothing come close to canon- the competition is officially dead.

Prudent to wait for the R5H . . .

You've missed one critical point, the EVF. The R6 is fitted with an 'old school' 3.69Mp resolution.

If you want to wean Canon DSLR users off their beloved OVF's of the 5D and 6D's, then the R5's 5.76Mp would have been a preferable sweetner.

Presumably if you rotate the mirror and front lens to and fro, you've just created a panoramic camera.

This camera is welcome news for us photograpers, whatever your brand loyalty. I thought the days of the 'budget' camera were gone, but this should bring new photographers into the fold. Well done Nikon. . .

Flashback: Not sure about the wisdom of the anti-aliasing filter with just 20Mp. The S1 reveals more detail.

So you agree, it can never be as sharp as the S1. . .

Impressive set of images from the 105, but colour saturation a tad too high.

What's up with that 50mm? Just doesn't look sharp or contrasty, against previous samples posted here.

No doubt it's a 16K wizzo, but you daren't hold it. . .

As a rule-of-thumb, every 10 degree rise in temperature, halves the life of a semiconductor material, including image sensors.

The good news: If you don't power up your camera at all and it will last for ever. . .

Marketing: "It's got to have 8K at no cost"

On article Canon EOS R5 vs. R6: What's the difference? (247 comments in total)

Both have anti-aliasing filters, that's odd. Thought we'd since the last of these. Maybe to mask some of those dual-pixel anomalies?

The R6 seems cracking value with it's full feature set, but that 'low res' 3.68Mp viewfinder is a real bummer. I'm currently shooting the 5.76Mp S1R and it's a joy to use.

Excellent article BTW

Not looking good for the Micro Four Thirds format. Can see it ending up just for vlogging and the GH film brigade. I so wanted Olympus to enter the FF market with their flare for original design, but alas they missed that train. . .

Not sure why they bothered including the mechanical shutter. Is it really needed for this intended market?

Which ever camp you are from, this is a NEW camera and that is welcome news for the photography world. . .

Hmm slightly disappointing. Not up there with the 50 F/1.2 samples, which were stonking. . .

On article Canon EOS R5: The long game ends with a big leap (682 comments in total)

My take on this is that Sony have a high specification camera virtually ready for release. Canon knows this and consequently has been forced to publish it's own R5 data prematurely. Could be wrong, who knows . . .
