On article Sony introduces FE 20mm F1.8 G ultra-wide prime lens (255 comments in total)
In reply to:

David610: This paired with a Tamron 28-70 would be the ultimate travel combination. Then there will be the 70-180mm and all have 67 mm filter sizes.

Sure, but if you wanted F1.8 and extreme sharpness, you wouldn't use the Tamron 28-70 or 70-180 either.

It seems weird to me to carry a G prime, and then drop that mindset for F2.8 third party zoom. But hey, each to their own.

The tamron 17-28 also has a 67mm filter size. You could just carry a Tamron zoom trinity and be covered.

If I was to pair this lens with anything, i'd probably go with the 55mm zeiss.

backayonder: A Jaguar. Photoshopped behind a fence. Seriously ?

That's even worse, photojournalism is about capturing true, live events. Once again, this is a picture of a projection.

I love all of the other winners, but I don't think a lotta people are gonna agree on a pre-set up shot winning a photojournalism award.

Point is, I don't think photographing a projection should count as wildlife photography. The original "actual" wildlife photo may not have been that impressive.

Auricom 007: Critics eat crow once the reviews start pouring in. The amazing focus throw along with superb focus peaking will ensure a trailblazing works of art the likes of which NO ONE has seen.

Winning 👏

What is it like in the future? Did Trump get re-elected? Who should I bet on in the next soccer world cup?

Is this is a significant improved on the A9? No.
Is this the best sports camera you can get at $4500? Yes.

Sony have released so many advancements that people are just holding them to a higher standard now.

GoldMark: Why use filters before lenses, why not behind them?

Because each lens would need a filter system built in to it (so as not to change the distance between the lens and the sensor) and then would probably only be able to take 1 filter anyway.

Mariano Pacifico: Gosh !!! Olympus is still stuck in the age 4/3rds and 20mps while the rest are going full bore full frame and 62mps.

They need to upgrade their business model. Attend Photokina instead of boycotting it so they can learn something.

@Tommi K: ISO is not standardized. ISO 1000 on a M4/3 is not ISO 1000 on full frame. It's not 1/3-2/3 stops difference as you say. There are a lot of factors at play (such a pixel density and size of individual pixels).

For actual results, just take a look at the DPR lab comparisons here:
https://www.dpreview.com/reviews/image-comparison?attr18=daylight&attr13_0=sony_a7iii&attr13_1=olympus_em1ii&attr13_2=apple_iphonex&attr13_3=apple_iphonex&attr15_0=raw&attr15_1=raw&attr15_2=jpeg&attr15_3=jpeg&attr16_0=3200&attr16_1=1600&attr16_2=32&attr16_3=32&attr126_1=1&normalization=full&widget=1&x=-0.23694008477488843&y=-0.09397187767322485

I have it comparing a Sony A7iii at ISO 3200 and a Olympus E-M1 Mark 2 at ISO 1600. The Sony still has lower noise despite being at a full stop higher in ISO. And it is noticeable difference when you take numerous shots over the course of the night, and all require significant noise reduction (and hence significant reduction in sharpness).

As someone who used to shoot M4/3, the only thing that made me switch was poor DR and high ISO performance. Maybe also AF (given the lower models are only CDAF). They dont need to chase megapixels, just improve the performance at 20MP, and I think most people will be happy.

On article Nikon developing D6 professional DSLR (1010 comments in total)

I'm a Sony mirrorless shooter myself, and a I really don't get all of the comments saying this camera will be DOA or not impressive.

Many people still love their DSLRs, and would still rather buy another DSLR. It's not for me, but there's definitely a market, and there's lots of people with a collection of lenses who are hesitant to move to mirrorless. When all of the high end releases have been mirrorless of late, Nikon are delivering a high end DSLR, and are sticking by their word that they haven't abandoned DSLRs (at least not yet).

Why are people putting down Nikon on this? It just makes you look insecure if anything.

nathanbush: Nikon developing new camera. In other news, the sky is blue.

I mean, if news of a new camera being developed doesn't interest you, I don't know what you're doing on this site.

It's not any camera, it's their flagship. Not to mention is a high end DSLR while everyone is looking towards mirrorless, and DSLR fans haven't seen anything worthwhile in a while.

Bijankc: Time to rename the site Sony Photography Review ... spreview.com ... :-)

I see this "DPR just covers Sony" crap a lot. Is there news on from the other brands that DPR didn't cover? Care to provide some examples of newsworthy reports from other sites that DPR didn't cover?

In reply to:

sibuzaru: I'm on the market for something between 17-24 I'm curious about how the Samyang 18mm will perform, but I hope Tamron make one of those primes a wide angle, being able to just update the firmware thru camera body is a big plus

Why not just get the 17-28 F2.8? You could get a prime in that range, but you'll often be stopping down on wide angle shots anyway to get more in focus.

In reply to:

ekaton: Another one of these soulless, clinically rendering, unattractively designed, semi fast, semi compact, semi weather resistant, boldly priced me too 35mm "meh" lenses. They all look and render about the same, Sony, Canon, Nikon, Sigma, Olympus, Panasonic........these days, it seems.

Ah, lens flaws of older lenses are "character" and accurate reproduction is "soulless."

How pretentious can you get?

On article DPReview TV: Travel tripod shootout! (273 comments in total)
In reply to:

HRC2016: I watched the first 2 minutes then tuned out.

1) misspelling the brand of one of the four tripods. What else is being overlooked/misstated?

2) the opening with the kids was 30 seconds of wasted time.

3) the nicknames were pointless. They introduced more information to your viewers when there is no benefit for them.

4) why is there an obsession with a camera at eye level? Don't we want the camera's height to be dictated by the scene/desired image? I get that some people have disabilities and a tripod is just a platform to hold the camera. If you are shooting action you want the camera at a comfortable height but you are likely using a monopod. Just think how boring photography would be if all photographs were taken w/ the camera 5'4" off the ground.

Chris, if you need help writing your next video let me know. .

I use a Sirui T-025X was the shortest & lightest on BH website. It's great.

I really hope Chris and Jordan don't start taking these videos as seriously as you take yourself. There's an entertainment factor to their videos which you don't seem to appreciate. It's what makes them not boring.

Literally the only point you made thats really worth taking away is misspelling of Sirui.

In reply to:

Tofer23: I’d love to see a studio test to see if Sony has a lens that can produce a 61mp image. It can be interesting to compare a real resolution of a7m4 vs a7m3. I doubt there are a lot of lenses that can do it.

In reply to:

Saaaaaaad: I love how so many people know that the colour reproduction is innacurate while never actually being in the shooting scene, or knowing the lighting conditions.

Not to mention complaining the out of camera JPGs at high ISO is soft, not acknowledging in camera noise reduction is in place.

Imagine being in the market for a USD$3500 camera, but being too lazy to process images yourself.

DPR comment sections never fail to disappoint.

@Saman Shamim: So which one's the accurate reproduction? Where's the reference shot you're using to say these colours are so far off? I'd suggest waiting for the DPReview studio tests before you conclude that it can't reproduce colours.

@Zvonimir: Thanks for proving you have no actual reasoning.
