Good to see these stockers come on line for long-suffering Sony FF owners.

So, where can I read the 'standard set of rules' for a photo to qualify as photojournalism? Something that is more or less agreed.

probert500: How about a series of smaller f2.8 lenses. The ART lenses are great but BIG and heavy.

Your Canon is now junk. You need the *new* Canon. :) P.S. My little GX7 will AF in -4EV, that's hardly 'lost'!

"Smaller f/2.8 lenses"? Come to micro four thirds world, and Sigma will spoil you with (equivalent FL) 38mm, 60mm, and 120mm f/2.8 lenses with excellent optics for $200 each.

Pleeeeaaaaassssseeeee, Panasonic, give us an 18-month lens roadmap too!

Kudos to Fuji, they are really investing in the enthusiast photographer who wants to build around 30mm sensors. And with a degree of transparency too, regarding intentions.

On Apple reveals Photos beta for developers post (125 comments in total)

By my reading, this goes about 60% of the way to meeting the needs of most amateur enthusiast photographers, and 300% of the way to meeting point-and-shoot photographers' needs.

Who on earth is it just right for?

Disappointed -- I was eagerly awaiting this as a true replacement-plus-more for Aperture. I would not have minded if it had an ultra-friendly, snapshooter-ready outer shell, as long as there were layers that could be peeled off to reveal Aperture-plus performance. It's not there, is it?

The title gives the wrong impression that this lens is a cosmetic update with a better coating. Surely it deserves to be called a re-design?

Old model: 2 ED glass elements 3 aspherical elements (1 ED glass)

New model: 1 dual-sided aspherical, 1 aspherical ED, 1 ED and 3 HR elements

Also, your full spec listing for the new lens incorrectly says no hood included.

Gosman: Although I'm a K-3 user and in the process of upgrading my lens, I think Pentax is way too late for the full frame SLR. In a few years, all of us will be shooting mirrorless cameras. And the new price for their new lenses for full frame? We should just convert over to Nikon and Canon as the whole world has. Pentax at a niche market with the best crop sensor slr on the market. Now they will compete with the big boys.

I'm guessing that the 'Pentax faithful' will be a significant market for it, and Ricoh won't be budgeting on mass migration from Canikon.

Maybe they are relying on Sigma and Tamron to quickly release Ricoh-compatible mounts for their FF lenses, and Ricoh won't have to make many themselves?

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-GM5 Review preview (436 comments in total)
In reply to:

Jorginho: Dated sensor? It is here since GX7, 1,5 years old. How is it dated. No mor edated than the Sony 24 Mpixel sensor. Nor the Fuji 16 Mpixels. This is not the same sensor we found in the GH2, GX1, G5, G6 etc....Nor is it the same sensor found in the EM5 or GH3 which were made by Sony. Like the Gh4 review says, I noted it is better than the one in the GH3/EPL5 /EM5 in especially Dynamic range, but also the other known parameters.
I also looked at the RAWs od the RX100III and GM5 at ISO6400 and ISO 12800. In the bulb mode, the RX100III at ISO 6400 equals the GM5 at ISO12800 (moreless). I do not see it coming closer and it does not seem equal.

The sensor doesn't perform to the same level as the GX7 and GH4 sensors, though. Not on paper at least.

I think (I hope) that the sensor comment was more of a "features checklist" comment, i.e. how will it compete in the minds of buyers at the counter, and not so much about whether it is good enough for actual owners. Because I agree with you and other commenters, the files should be highly satisfying for owners.

@Smartypants...... humunnnnnnnngous!

I would still like to see a Sony statement on who they think is going to buy the A7 system and who they think will be buying the A77/99 system. With their separate lens systems.

On Medium well done: Two takes on the Pentax 645Z article (245 comments in total)
In reply to:

fmian: Not that I can afford such a camera, but the fact that it's a crop sensor compared to a real full frame 645 camera seems a let down.

What an ancient, long-won argument resuscitated by someone who still doesn't realize that the war was over long ago. Please, enjoy your hobby, but claims of superiority are ridiculous. It's hard (but not impossible) to argue that 4x5 film delivers more than a D800. 645 film-- pfft.

In reply to:

Klarno: Guessing this is going to have the same problem as the GM1 where you only get 10 bit RAWs with 1024 instead of 4096 levels per channel at all shutter speeds faster than 1/500. I'll have to pass...

No problem then.
