On Hands on with the Pentax 645Z news story (467 comments in total)

(...) we were surprised to see that the 645Z's shutter is actually quieter than the one on the Sony A7r.

Lol

In reply to:

T3: So whatever happened to all those yahoos who believed that the key to better high ISO performance was MORE pixels and HIGHER pixel density?

The focus in this case is video. It only has 12mp so it can just read the whole sensor, without the need to use line skipping to get the video. All things equal, pixel size should be irrelevant to the amount of noise in images with the same size.

Almeida: Are people buying these crop cameras?

I see I was a bit too subtle. :)

On Panasonic announces Leica DG Summilux 15mm F1.7, and GM1 kit news story (277 comments in total)
In reply to:

tkbslc: I'd suspect most would find the 14mm f2.5 to be just as useful, slightly wider and much cheaper and compact.

m4/3 is already overcrowded in the wide-normal prime department. Not sure why we needed this one.

Because it's one stop faster.

On Pentax K-3 preview (961 comments in total)
In reply to:

Craig from Nevada: "As we're working towards finishing our full in-depth review of Ricoh's Pentax K-3, we've decided to publish pages of the review that are complete so far instead of making you wait."

The public has waited 6 months.

This is just throwing a something out there in an attempt to rescue DPReview's credibility rather that an honest effort to review a fine camera for the public to consider (read other reviews).

Don't send partial drafts out.

Yes this is so sad. I've been shooting with a pinhole for the past 6 months. No way I'm buying a K-3 until DPreview finishes this review!

In reply to:

qwertyasdf: Since it's posted on DPR, I can only see barrel distortion in the second picture.

You seemed to have missed his point.

In reply to:

fenceSitter: "50 Mpixel CMOS sensor with almost twice the physical size of the largest 35 mm DSLR sensor."

On which planet are 1.67 "almost 2"?

Hey it's closer to 1 than 2 right? :D

In reply to:

SDPharm: Here's my question: take an identical scene with this new Hassy and a Nikon D800, process them to the best one can, then print each to a reasonable size, say, 5 ft wide. Then hang them in a gallery with controlled lighting. Will I be able to tell which one is which when viewing them from a comfortable viewing distance of 3-5 ft?

You could also throw a Nokia 1020 in there just for fun. I would like to see that blind test.

On Phase One announces IQ250 50MP CMOS medium format back news story (197 comments in total)
In reply to:

Anastigmat: I wonder if Canon and/or Nikon will shake up the market by making its own medium format CMOS sensors, cameras and lenses.

Phase One and Hasselblad will get exclusive access to this sensor for one year. Meanwhile later this year Canon will announce their MF system, that has being rumoured for a while.

On Ricoh GR comparative review preview (27 comments in total)
In reply to:

Chimayred: hey can anyone explain how the GR and the RX100 both earned 79% in the enthusiast large sensor compact camera class but the GR is a gold award and teh sony is a silver?

The gold and silver award are not related to the score of the camera.

In reply to:

topstuff: Interesting in that it tells us that IQ is not the top priority for people.

It also reveals the truth that people generally look at photography through an iPad or tablet and don't print large anymore.

It also reveals that a large percentage of shooters only really take pictures in undemanding situations, with good light and conditions.

Why else would a MFT camera win? ;)

The OP said what he said tongue in cheek...
