To be really superficial, I think the name "Cornell Capra" is pretty cool :)
WT21: Don't see any reason to come off my m43 kit based on this. I had the XE1 briefly and returned it. Glad I did. I loved the Fuji handling and styling, but the size, IQ and AF speed of m43 still bests it, IMO. And is a better compliment to my 6D.
@draschan: agreed. I love my EPL5 for size, but I would like a little better manual controls. I teeter on the edge of an OMD (had one before), but as m43 is meant to be my "compact" camera, I keep it small.@HowaboutRAW: I've used just about every m43 camera, and currently have an EPL5. Lenses currently are P14, O17/1.8, PL25 and P100-300 (and also lens cap lens). I have done a few pics at ISO6400, but not many. If I need high ISO, it's usually for action, and that's where the DSLR comes in, because you also need the focus speed. If you need ISO6400 on the Fuji, you are also doing MF, since the Fuji hunts terrible in low light.@ ManuelVilardeMacedo - the EP1 is a great cam. I'm hoping the EP5 has the new sensor and the old EPx aesthetic, though I would also love a shutter speed dial :)

I really like the pics, but I'm just not sure they are NYT front page material. Mostly stylistically, not quality wise.
WT21: Also note -- when Google bough Nik, they sent out an e-mail saying you needed to allow your account data to transfer to Google. If you said "no" then you likely don't get this deal.
The e-mail clearly said you have to transfer your data to receive any support. The e-mail I got confirming the transfer said
"By transferring your information and your previous history, you will continue to be eligible for support for your Nik Software products."

I bought the desktop app.
I do not at all care for Google. Simply cannot stand them.
abolit66: technology, shmenology, learn how to make a decent camera first, Fuji!
slower to focus using CDAF is not really 'focusing issues'
They're good cameras.
I deleted all my photos on picasaweb. Now I've got smugmug. Much better anyway, I pay for the service, and I don't feel like Big Brother is rolling me up into "Big Data" (though they probably still are) Really, can't stand Google.
JackM: 201 questions?? You are out of your mind! For that kind of time I expect to be paid a consulting fee.
15 minutes? Did you actually fill that out? 14 minutes, and I was only 1/4 of the way through. Unless, of course, you aren't actually thinking about your answers
201 questions? I started on it, got to question 20, then thought "how long is this thing"
Agree with Narnia -- life is too short. If I fill it out completely, you would OWE me an iPad, not just a chance to enter to win one, lol.
Let me know when you cut it down by about 75%.
Ooh, ooh! LR now supports the Lunar! Yeah!
I don't understand all the negativity. Nikon has put out a tech advisory, and seems willing to repair. I think that's a good thing. Much like the mirror fix on the Canon 5D classic.
aarif: I agree with the conclusions mostly but I don't see this as a con. At all
"Slightly lower resolution than all of its full frame peers"
I do just fine with my 5Dc at 12MP. I could use maybe up to 16. But over that, I don't need it at all, and it just slows down my workflow, which is mainly done on a 3 year old macbook pro.
sjredo: Updated SEL 50. It ain't noticeably faster... :( Couldn't even tell the difference at first.
GodSpeaks: How long has the NEX-6 been on sale now? And all we get from dpREVIEW is an 'updated PREVIEW'.
Barney, I think put more politely -- in the past, DPR had been quite quick with cutting-edge reviews. Now, for cameras that seem important to your readership, there seems a long lag. I'm guessing your editorial staff is a fraction of what it used to be, likely driven by corporate cost reduction. I've no doubt the staff is doing their best, but the the perceived speed to market with the reviews seems worse than before the Amazon acquisition. That's the perception, at least.
Yes Canon. Please expand your offering and price points (and body sizes) in full frame.
Without a clear workflow or output quality winner, I'll go with the application and company that I think will still be around and independent 10 years from now, and who is most likely to give my library and adjustments an upgrade path - Adobe.
Jefftan: biggest problem is no OSSno use at high ISO at night
marike6: that's also why they make m43. More DOF, IBIS and no tripod needed.
