AwkwardSwine: In Seattle you can see Dunkirk in full 70mm at the Cinerama. In fact they have a full roster of classic 70mm films playing this summer.

I don't know what's real anymore.

Absolutic: Carey it is not the only 30mm equivalent lens on the market. How hard did you look to miss Nikon 20/1.8 which makes exactly
30mm on apsc Nikon sensor?

Carey will be disciplined forthwith.

Sadly not. A few of us watched it there last night - it's letterboxed, more like the second image down on the left, in the infographic above.

ColdViking: Betteridge's law of headlines: "Any headline that ends in a question mark can be answered by the word no."

"I seriously can't see any reason to buy this one."

That's the only thing in your entire comment that is true. You can't see any reason why you should buy one. The rest of what you wrote is just a matter of opinion.

Trundling: "like Michael Phelps goes through eggs"

A VERY local simile. Took me a while to remember Phelps was a swimmer, and I have NO idea what about the eggs. Try Ozzy and a pound of coke.

Because he's a professional athlete and needs to consume a bazillion calories a day.

Please continue to do so.

In reply to:

eaglenote: How many cameras were used in this test? Sample size of one camera doesnt constitute the scientific method too well.

To answer the question, one camera was 'tested' in our lab (see images above) but Raw DR in structured shooting environments is identical between three cameras we've used, including one pre-production body. So sample variation isn't a factor.

He eats a lot of eggs.

Very cute, but Betteridge's law only holds when it's a question with an obvious answer. In this case, the answer might well be 'yes' depending on your circumstances.

piratejabez: Holy crap... what's everyone's problem?

Barney, thank you for the insightful, thorough (and free!) comparisons. This article is very well thought-out and organized, and should be very helpful to those in the situations you mention. Cheers!

My mother doesn't frequent the DPR comments sections - she's a retired high-school teacher, it'd be too much like her old job.

sunnycal: Can someone remind Adobe Lightroom team that this is 2017 now. We have been paying monthly subscription for the privilege of using a two+ year old product!

Is that why subscription model was put in place?

I think you're being a bit pedantic - yes, it's called 'CC 2015' but it's being continually updated.

In reply to:

dtibi: Many of the photographers use 6D because of the high DR. If it is true that the DR is lower, these users will not update ...

All indications are that practically speaking, it's about the same. We're preparing a detailed DR analysis and we'll be publishing it soon.

akustykmagmanetpl: this isn't an article, this is a slide show

and pretty questionable at that, considering limited (if any) real life experience with 6D mkII...

Except for the three cameras we've shot with, you mean.

Broadoaker: Silly review title which does your credibility no favours.

This isn't a review, but putting that aside, is there any information in this article that you feel is inaccurate or misleading?

In reply to:

FuhTeng: I appreciate the sardonic tone. I'm sure there will be many out with pitch forks and torches, but hey, I enjoyed it.

This confuses me - "The Leica TL2 is a modern mirrorless camera with a short flange-back distance, and unlike the original T, it allows for exposures to be taken without a native lens attached. M-mount lenses can be attached via Leica's own M-Adapter T (shown here on a T), and third-party lenses can be mounted with an appropriate third-party adapter." the original T didn't allow non-native lenses (like Leica M)? That doesn't seem right.

My understanding, based on our contemporary coverage is that with original FW, the T didn't allow exposures to be made without a lens attached. The M-Adapter T has *always* worked with all versions of the T (hence the photograph used in this article).

alcaher: how dificult is to make money out of photography nowdays?...most photogrraphers
are having hard time getting something out of it.... And please, give the monkey allthe photo credits, the monkey also needs money.

I think the inference here is that he's been financially drained by the process of attempting to defend himself legally. So the photo/s in question have ended up being a net deficit to his income.

"The guy admits to making thousands of dollars from the image, enough to pay for his entire international trip."

I made £500 for shooting a wedding in 2010. Doesn't mean I can afford a new lens in 2017.
