I think that's an improvement (although since you've replaced the original, it's not possible to compare them). I seems to me that the bright yellow area just to the right of the falls is still overly bright; I understand your "light at the end of the tunnel" idea but for me it doesn't  quite work. Others may differ: I don't claim to be "right".


Really better than the first version you post.

Now they are equally good.

I can find examples where Lightroom does pull back the detail too Hans.  That does not help for the cases where it can't.  The way feathers reflect light is extremely variable.  I usually manage to get the exposure the way I want - but not always.

You can, of course, also download the Adobe DNG 8.7RC converter and check your images.

Well, you have the 120mm 67 soft focus, if you need it. I would also add that image stabilization at focal lengths of 28-45mm and 90mm (maybe up to 3 stop equiv.), and probably future lenses, is usually more important than a 1.9 lens for landscape. Of course if the camera is always on a tripod this doesn't matter (which is not my experience of landscape photography). Manual focusing will also be greatly aided by live view - a large benefit of the Pentax compared to the P45+. Furthermore clean high iso makes larger DOF possible for all lenses, not to mention sharpness, by using e.g. iso 400 + f4, vs. iso 100 and f1.9 (on one lens).

the only way you can really tell if the printheads are working correctly is to print a diagnostic chart and study it carefully to identify where the problems are, if there are.

Luke, I would be astounded if a Japanese camera maker was using Phillips head screws rather than JIS.  Most people do not realize there are different flavors of cross-slotted screws (there is another one in addition to Phillips and JIS, if I recall), but I would have expected more from Fotodiox.  I suppose one could try asking Roger Cicala at, I expect he could give you the correct answer on the Sony mount screws.

I'm no expert, but my suspicion is that they scanned the original book instead of the original source print, and did a shoddy job of de-screening the printing dots.

Also, marks on the wall behind the bed are clearly retouched/cleaned up. I'm not sure if that's justified or not (ok if the marks were dirt on the source print, but not if they were actually on the wall)

Thanks for the reply AFairley but the paper sizes are not stored in the Preferences, Printer or User Preset areas. Maybe they are stored in some kind of Epson printer file? I noticed that all of my paper sizes are available from Photoshop as well as LR so maybe Epson has a file somewhere. Ideas? Thanks.      - Jim

Oops, that is correct, they are created not by LR but by the Epson driver.  Sorry....

I understand Sigma offers a usb thingy to work with the lenses, although I think it is for focusing issues.  Anybody have experience with that? Cool

Yes!  Just get one!

The AF system is not linear with distance.  The Sigma USB puck allows one to tune it in four distance zones, or whatever ones you want to use it in.  Mine (35mm) has a weird -13, -9, -3, +1 in AF tuning distances with one body, and it is different with another body.  Very odd, but it helps to tune the things.  Nikon only allows for one setting in their menu, and Canon allows for two with their zooms.  Not enough, and I doubt if their techs tune it any better than the owner could do it.

Nikon should make the same gizmo for their lenses, imho.

Hello Keith, I recently bought the V850 after reading your excellent and comprehensive review. You advised downloading the latest XRite scanner software rather than using the Epson supplied XRite calibration software on. I think that if you're not already registered with XRite you might be better starting off with the disc and then updating.

Thanks for an excellent review (and a great web site!).

Here's the thing, jjj.

I don't care what you think. If you want to go check the truth value of some side remark I made, a couple of moments with google will provide loads of evidence that I am right. Page after page after page of "We asked so and so artists why they do it and they said..." with not one of the artists saying "to create a legacy" or anything equivalent.

Since you are too lazy to even bother with that, you obviously don't care whether what I say is true or not.
Really? So where's the link to this 'proof' of what you think is the case. I don't know what you googled to prove a negative. Which is in fact rather difficult to do.  Undecided
Here's a thing, people create art for a whole host of reasons, some of which won't be to create a legacy, some will. Also there may be multiple reasons why people create art. But I very much doubt any of them will be producing art and not hoping others appreciate their work, even after they've gone. The thing about creating stuff that others like, is that it is a way of being remembered/gaining a sort of immortality. This way you do not simply disappear once friends and grandkids die.
