Wow. New comments design. Horrible, isn't it?

uwleahcim: I was hoping for 5-axis in-body sensor stabilization and not 5-axis electronic stabilization....

Anyways, I'm still waiting for someone to release a 4k@60fps action camera (Ambarella H2 and Sony sensor). Some kind of physical stabilization like body or optical would be awesome too.

There might be a reason why action cams avoid non-fixed sensor.

Floating sensor vs shock-proofing is probably the problem.

Pat Cullinan Jr: I would like DPR to always assign the absence of a VF to the Cons column.

For the mid-range and high-end - I'm 100% with you.

But for the entry-level $500 and less, I'm not so sure.

BrightTiger: Re: M10 - so it gets explicitly knocked for "Limited selection of EF-M lenses" yet not a word on connectivity to the extensive catalog of EF and EF-M lens via a $40 new adapter? Disappointing commentrary, DPReview. You also might regret the note with the coming EF-M lens within a year or two. Buying decisions need to include a view to the near future.

Who in their sane mind would buy the $500 EOS M10, then only to go out and buy $$$$$ L glass for it?

P.S. IMO EOS M lens catalog is small but fairly "complete": Canon has covered the most used range with 3 zooms, while also providing a pancake prime and a macro. Compare with how many years and lenses it took Sony to accomplish the same.

Sacher Khoudari: F2.0 equiv? Really?

Text now says "13.9mm equiv".

Just noticed that the Hasselblad doesn't even have a forum on the DPR.

cinemascope: Nice way to lock you into paying MSRP

Do these cameras even have a "street price"?

PKDanny: Go to Samsung sensor or Philips sensor or other sensor!!???!!

> Imagine how many sensors a self deiving car will have... 7? 8? A dozen?

Last I read - over 20.

But they employ different types of sensors, only few of which are capable of delivering normal human-viewable video feed.

RobLW: Why would Tamron "claim" to be 'the title of the world's first fast-aperture 85mm lens with stabilization'. either it is, or it isn't.

Do you even English?

"2. to assert as a fact"
"4. to take"
"5. an assertion of a right; a demand for something as due"
"7. a right or just title to something"

TheDarmok74: Round ups, sponsored content, fix-it video links...
I have to say that considering the much larger staff than before, the real, at least 5-page plus reviews have become very rare.

And yes, I know we don't pay, as on most websites. Still, these are my 2 cents.

Number of reviews published by DRP by year:

54 2013
48 2012
35 2011
25 2010
28 2009
34 2008
36 2007
35 2006
45 2005
35 2004
24 2003
26 2002
32 2001
22 2000
16 1999
1 1998

And you say the reviews became... rare?

@DRP, it would be extremely helpful if you would add to the list of specs the availability of the built-in lens cap.

For the pocketable cameras - on these recent roundups there are more than a few - it is a very attractive and useful feature.

LED lights are not new: at least the "Yasuhara Nanoha Macro Lens" did it before.

Donald B: what is the point of a 28mm macro lens, the designer obviously has never shot macro before.

@Donald: "what is the point of a 28mm macro lens"

Price. It is said that long macro lenses are much harder to design, making them much larger and more expensive. That's why all of the systems have at least one wide-ish but cheapo macro lens, as an affordable alternative. Though 28mm is probably the widest macro I've heard about.

In reply to:

ThePhilips: The IBIS and shutter of GX85, combined with the OS-PDAF and price of A6000, would be a killer mirrorless camera.

@kolyy, But Pana DFD is, despite all the praise, is still handicapped: it will not work with Oly lenses.

I find the situation with AF-C on m43 absurd. Panasonic developed DFD which only works with Panasonic lenses. Olympus has OS-PDAF, but only in the (single) top-tier body.

Panasonic finally conceded their earlier position and implemented the IBIS. I could only hope that they would also implement the OS-PDAF - to support the Olympus lenses. (Because I have mostly given up on the Olympus.)

VRiabov: Never liked SONY colors. To me images look noisy with very dull and washed out colors.

@Max lso: "If nothing beats the natural colors, why would you abuse the vivid colors?"

Because others like it. And the images are made to be shown to others, not to be enjoyed in the solitude of the dark room.

> To me images look noisy with very dull and washed out colors.

That dull and washed out thing is BTW called "real world," for your information. And the colors - "natural" or "neutral."

P.S. Though I too abuse the "vivid" colors often, still, to me, nothing beats the natural colors. One successful image in natural colors worth a hundred of HDR/oversaturated ones.

Let me set my unrealistic expectations: pocketable Pana TZ200 with 24-600 zoom in 2 years. Pana, don't you dare to disappoint us!
