On article First pictures from the new Nikon 8-15mm fisheye (139 comments in total)
In reply to:

quietrich: "on the (mistaken) assumption that they will always create unnaturally distorted images"
'Distortion' surely refers to scale and perspective, as well as lines. Ultra-wide and fisheyes will always result in distorted images, distortion which we might or might not like; but it is unavoidably there.

True, indeed!

beavertown: The old Canon counterpart seems to be better in image quality.

Take both at the same location/time/light. See, then. So far it is clear bold statement, sorry.

Great smartly composed job. Consistent color/contrast ratio, even edited. Who doesn't today, if you are the pro and making your living with it? Well done, Marco! The lens looks like a clear winner. Nikon, do not listen to endless whining of some, just continue! Stunning 28, 105, so what about the new Noct 55-58 1.2?

dennis tennis: my iphone takes way better pictures and I'm sexier using the iphone compared to lugging around a big dinosaur DSLR. Hot women come up to me when I whip out my iphone and sling it around like a mack daddy. When I bend over to extract my ancient DSLR from my backpack, thus revealing my plumber's crack, women run away. Let's face it, women check out that sexy iphone bulge on my rear skinny jean pocket. The outline of that iphone 7, seals the deal baby!

In this case, it is much better to put Leica 10 on one's chest! To show prosperity it is OK, do not even put the battery inside! One will be surrounded by hot young Ladies! BTW, this new Sig is really good, but heavy SOB! Next great achievement from Sigma!

moizes 2: They are not able to find better person for such the job! Congs and very best wishes to Ming and Hassel!

Ming is a great practical photographer on the field. One of the best, to be exact. So he knows for sure what we need. Very educated, with great knowledge and skills. This job is for him!

moizes 2: A lot of words and termination equilibristic... The 300/4 lens will be 300/4 lens on any sensor, from Nikon 1 to 8x10 camera (if such the sensor ever existed). Do not move your tripod and object, and this lens, with different angle of view, will deliver the same DOF on any size sensor. More photons, less photons... Smaller sensor, less photons! Everything balanced by format and size of the sensor! Rise your ISO, and more electrically charged sensor will deliver more light sensitivity/more grain/less DR. Lower your ISO - less charged sensor delivers less sensitivity/less grain/wider DR. So 24-35/2 at 35mm, will equal to 44/2.5 lens on MF for DOF calculations ONLY! On FF format the 44/2.5 MF lens will stay 44/2.5 lens, as well as on the Nikon 1 format, with different angle, but with the same DOF, if you are staying still with your object and tripod! If you move back or closer, this lens, while still 44/2.5, will deliver different angle of view, as well as different DOF! Come on!

We are speaking about physical characteristics of the any given lens, not the changes to composition or perspectives, what is clearly clarified. Do not compare apples to oranges. Stay, and DOF is the same. Move back, and DOF getting greater. But the lens itself will be the same, doesn't matter what format in use, what some of you can't accept. Come on, for Boy sake!

If you stay you'll have the 600/4 equivalency. If you move back to get the same angle of view of FF, then only you get F8.0 eq. of DOF.

That's possible, but there isn't any certain reason for such the strange behavior. I'll report any changes.

joe6pack: You can feel the suffering of the camera by looking at its blinking light.

Yeah... Exactly like my old Explorer, when it was swallowed by Sandy 4 years ago... Good-by light and horn fading, emitted by dying car...

So what is the practical target of this barbarically made test? Power of overpressed water gear? Dead camera body turned inside out? Why?

Nikon clearly and profoundly denies that, couple hours ago. No plans to cutting jobs. Let as wait and see.

On article Hands-on and in-depth with the Sony a6500 (556 comments in total)

Giant concern sees the way to dramatically improve their 6300 model very fast. In eyes of some it is very bad. In my eyes it is just stunning how rapidly Sony reacts on our demands. New 6500 incarnation is giant step forward towards us, so we are the very last instance of fair judgement! Well done, Sony, so, if needed, I'll welcome 6700 model in next 9 months! Guys, do not pay any attention to some endlessly wining people who has never taken images but criticize every new product, what is really never seen by them, yet! Come on, for Boy sake! Go ahead, Sony!

On article Pinnacle Prime: Olympus ED 25mm F1.2 Pro sample gallery (200 comments in total)

While sharpness is OK wide open, questionable quality against source of light... Too much of flare and hosting, contrast impacted very seriously. 1.8 version looks better on this respect. Both are not any usable for close portraiture - just bad joke! Faces are greatly deformed.

My copy of this lens is razor sharp thru the zoom, especially at 400mm. Stunningly sharp lens, even wide open! Way better than any 70-200 with any TC. So, I do not need both of my 70-200 anymore, especially outside. To work in, I'll wait for good 135/2 with VR, from Nikon or third party manufacturer, to use it wide open.

Not impressed. It is not a world Leica level. Very few images are deserve attention.
