    • I can second the contax zeiss love, they are absolutely fantastic. I started with the 50mm planar f1.7 and was so in love with the look I had to get more.  I have since snagged minty copies of the 85mm 1.4 as well as the more compact 85mm 2.8, along with the 60mm macro f2.8, which is a joy to use. But my favorite of all the contax zeiss lenses, by far, which basically lives on my camera, is the 35-70mm f3.4. Gorgeous lens, great range, the push/pull and smooth, long focus throw is very handy for run and gun, and I am just in love with the look.  I keep going back and forth on picking up the 35mm 1.4. It's the most expensive of the CZ's and costs a pretty penny, but I'm very, very tempted. 
    • Plenty of people complained that the BMPCC4k looked more videoish than the original BMPCC, which really comes down to the original having more noise giving some texture and having less resolution.  Canon is kind of the same with its 1:1 sampling.  Really all the cameras are bloody good, and can be made to look bloody good with the right glass, lighting, grading etc etc.  I've seen some beautiful stuff from the Sony A7 range despite generally disliking Sonys colour science, and also seen some horrible stuff shot on an alexa.  At the end of the day, we all have different tastes and like what we like, its just pretty hard to articulate that and so we end up using terms like filmic and mojo etc.  Heck a lot of films shot on actual 35mm use a lot of extra diffusion with nets etc, are they more organic than other films shot on film without diffusion?
    • I can guarantee you the pros that invest in a 1DX2 DGAF about DXO sensor ranking. A7R2 is a high MP landscape camera. Apple & oranges. Canon's strength imo is in their top glass, ecosystem, ergonomics, color science, reliability etc. They develop everything in-house which means a slower camera refresh rate than the competition (who all buy their sensors from sony and outsource various parts). But 1DX2 is still the only FF camera that shoots DCI 4K60p (albeit at APS-H) and was the first hybrid to do no crop FF FHD 120fps (beating Sony to the punch). Even if the Pro R model were to recycle 1DX2 sensor/specs it would still be a pretty solid release even for 2019 standards. Canon however have heavily hinted towards a new sensor (as well as confirmed IBIS) so I expect the pro model to well surpass 1DX2.. EOS R / RP were clearly rushed and had to recycle 5D4/6D2 sensor tech. I expect Pro R model out by 2020 alongside 1DX3 just in time for Tokyo Olympics. 
    • I like Canon. They have held a warm place in my heart. I owned a XH-A1 camcorder years ago and worked with the 5Dmkii at the beginning of the DSLR revolution.  I owned a C100 MKI briefly and really dug it. The lightweight codec was awesome, but I needed the 60P. I picked up the 80D on a whim and it is absolutely great for my personal stuff. The touchscreen and ergonomics are superb. I was excited and ready to make a commitment to Canon for mirrorless, but it's been lackluster. Everyone else offers better gear for the price. I would of easily ordered the EOS RP for FHD, but damn I'm not that much of a sucker to get fleeced by them.
    • LOL, I guess going from SPAM to Brexit to cow nappies and the literal interpretation of scripture is logical in some sense, but... In terms of the overall situation, I agree with @BTM_Pix that had the potential futures been laid out so people could clearly choose between them there is no way that this one would have gotten the vote. In more general terms, globalisation is scary and people are resistant to it.  Everyone resists change when it happens too fast for them, so this is a natural human tendency.  The world is slowly unifying as it has done for thousands of years, and will continue to do so.   The only history lesson that is really relevant here is that we have made the progression from tribes of nomads to villages to small kingdoms/states to empires, simultaneously we have made the progression from hunter-gatherer to farmer to self-contained societies with specialisations to formal trade agreements and to global organisations.  These progressions are often difficult and there is huge resistance and often some backwards steps but inevitably the progression moves forward.  Yes, there have been many examples of the failure of empires and unions, but any argument that we live in a steady state and that this trend is not absolutely overwhelming in the long-term would have to provide many examples of large countries splitting back into the dozens of small kingdoms or hundreds/thousands of tribes that existed before the country was unified.  History only makes sense if you actually talk about all of it, talking about only a few hundred years or a book that isn't meant to be taken literally isn't that helpful.  Do regional differences and old prejudices still exist, sure.  But they fade very quickly over generations, and this is the future that will come to exist.  We've managed to avoid global destruction for long enough that it's reasonable to assume we're capable of it indefinitely, at least from a warfare perspective.   Globalisation is the future because it is in everyones interests.  Any resource not spent on war is a resource that can be spent on education, health care, research, or making a camera with DPAF, Canon colour science, and global-shutter FF 4K Besides, cows don't need nappies.  They need AI drones that will collect the dung and manage it for electricity production and composting purposes.
