Bought this the last time this deal was available. Got it on time, beautiful lens.
I completely get the complaints about DXO, which uses pseudo-science to extrapolate broad interpretations from tiny data points and then oversprays their ratings with one-size-fits-all generalizations.
But, that's not the case with DPR or the Digital Picture.
What I would like to know more about, however, is the relative benefits/drawbacks. Is it now better, for example, to shoot a subject at ISO 400 and underexpose by four stops, than to shot at ISO 6400 and expose properly.
I'm wondering if there is room for such a plate. The collar is really close to the mount. It probably will work, but this is a wonky design.
So if a review praises the camera dozens of times and criticizes it a few times then it is biased against it? I don't think so......
I have found that DPR does the best reviews of any of the review sites. Could they be better? Of course they could..... there is always room for improvement as perfection is something to be strived for, yet never obtained....
I thought it was a very well done review. My only complaint with it is the fascination that the camera industry has with ISO 100 and would have liked to see more tests done at high ISO like 3200 or 6400 so the readers get an idea of the relative merits of cameras when you start to push things a bit.....
But overall, it was well done, well organized, and easy to read.
That's why I shoot pictures of black squirrels in the snow.... It doesn't matter what camera I use, none have sufficient DR so I can forget about it and enjoy photography.....Lightening shadows is not going to make my photos new or exciting or more creative. Far from it.
No, but extreme shadow lifts can make them look flat, front-lit and uninteresting. If that's your thing, extreme shadow pushes are the way to go, and Exmor makes it possible!
+1. One shot HDR for the win!
Kidding. That s--- hurts my eyes.
I actually deliberately resort to that nonsensical 'blast shadows' / 'obliterate highlights' move, but only on my cell phone, believe it or not. Shooting our two black dogs with poor interior lighting is like a dynamic range nut punch, but needs must in that case.
