  • Not to take anything away from the impressive achievements of the world's best optical engineers and manufacturers. I just bought a 50mm 1.8 STM lens and am relearning what it means to be an...

    Three years from now on DP: 3-1-2020, LUMIX announces it's first full frame camera. Although it's clearly a rebadged Leica 24 SL, it's $2200 price is less than ⅓ that of the Leica's. Sloth like...

  • You make some excellent points. I'm not so sure that mirror/slap.camera vibration matter all that much to fashion photographers or product photographers working with high speed professional strobe...

  • Does anyone here understand the difference between high end professional equipment meant to do the heavy lifting and all the other stuff? It's not all about speed and megapixel counts or any of...
