You mean Whinnie the Pooh was He-Who-Shall-Not-Be-Named  ???     ?

BOY I am gonna get me one of those Zeiss Otus 58 1.4s !! Have you seen what that lens has done for his photography ?

Who said "gear doesn't matter" ?  :-X

You guys do realize he used the name Nalle Puh on multiple occasions previously, right?

And I agree, the Otus was like his "yellow sun"...it supercharged his photography.

It's his second alias in three months. He was mikea in December. Edward (eml58) gave him a good beating and off he went. Reappeard as Nalle Puh (Swedish for Winnie the Pooh) and apparently he's gone again. Can't say I'll miss him. But on the other hand, he does stur up some good discussions  :P
I'm pretty sure I have seen him with yet another alias a while ago. That makes three at least.

I wonder why he is so desperate to be on this site ... but again, I too am on a rumor site discussing all kinds of not so essential stuff  :-[ ... I guess the only consolation/justification for me is that I am not banned ;D

Oh, and like many others, I think DxO's software is good (probably the best for noise reduction).

I'd argue for automatic distortion correction as well.

Well, when I asked about noise reduction software last year, I was lambasted for it.  According to many (on CR anyway), there's no such thing as noise reduction, only image softening.  I tend to disagree very much, even with the NR available from Adobe.  I've not tried DXO...perhaps if they offered it free to Canon owners in return for their bias against the brand, I would opt to try it out?
I use noise reduction on many images, I guess some people would like to argue that it is not noise reduction and that it is is only "image softening", maybe it makes them look intelligent if they use an alternative word then what the software developer has chosen to name it ... I know some people call landing the flight a "controlled fall" coz it makes them look intelligent ... maybe they are just pessimistic people who cannot build any useful software or hardware but would like to come across as intelligent people with "clever" words to describe everything - or maybe they just want attention  ;D

I'll defer to your expertise on that :D  How come you didn't come to my defense back then?  Or maybe you did, I forget.

Its an ok lens for Sony's crop sensored mirrorless cameras ... I was planning on buying it, to use, for times when I don't want to take my 5D MK III + 16-35, especially during business trips ... also recently our office moved to the downtown area of the city where there lots of skyscrapers, so I wanted an easy to carry/portable lens to capture the landscape of the concrete jungle here + I plan on getting the Sony a6000 during the end of April or early May, so the Sony 10-18 would be a nice fit for that camera, meanwhile it can also be used as a 12-17mm full frame lens on my Sony a7.
