Start selling that dang 10-24!!!! I like wide angle...and the 10-24 is the only lens I am waiting for.

BroncoBro: When is Nikon going to grab the camera market by the balls and do something innovative that LEADS the market rather than follow everyone else?

Timbit - I agree that the RX1 is far more impressive...but 'accounting for sensor size' doesn't make it magically shrink to fit in my pocket. There is currently no camera out there this small with this size of a sensor. The closest thing would be a Sigma...but it is still a bit bigger.

Maxnoy/Timbits - The X1/X2 is 'not much bigger'...really??? I suppose you guys think a Suburban is 'not much bigger' than an Austin mini.

If what you want is pocketability there is a HUGE difference:

Leica X2 - 124x69x52 345g
Nikon - 111x64x40 299g

BroncoBro - Tell me another camera maker who offers an APS-C size sensor in this small of a package. (Hint: there currently isn't anyone who offers this sensor size in this small of a package....truly pocketable).

On HTC One: Is it the the ultimate camera phone? post (78 comments in total)

I don't get all the haters. I love my HTC One X but I'm now on the pre-order for this HTC One. Awesome phone. I just hope the 64GB version is available in Canada.

ManuelVilardeMacedo: An MF system or a brand new yacht: you choose.

Manuel....even if you had to buy the lenses...say you spent 100k.....that's still a pretty cheap 'yacht'....even on the used market. Just sayin'.

Not to mention the fact that no one paying $4ok for this back is making a decision to buy it instead of their 'yacht'. This is clearly aimed at pros who can pay for the gear...not your average Mom and Pop soccer parents. Clearly you are not in the target market (nor am I :)

stratplaya: This girl has made some bad choices in her life.

Austin - I don't think that it's an either/or thing at all. You are likely quite correct that it may have been both in this situation.....but to come on here like the OP and say 'she made some bad choices' is just a little lopsided....so I leveled the field.

Ahh......how about her loser boyfriend who has made WORSE decisions in his life...at least based on the limited back-story. How typical....blame the victim.

Your comment insinuates that it is somehow her fault...or that she asked for it.

On Pentax Ricoh discontinues K-01 K-mount mirrorless camera news story (299 comments in total)
In reply to:

drummercam: The canons-nikons have had their own flops and their own manufacturing defects. There were light leaks on one of the canon dslr's, and the nikon V2 looks like marc newson could have given it some badly needed design help (same with entire PS G15 line and the NEX's, as far as I'm concerned). Disagree that K-01 is in any way ungainly in the hand. It lends itself to a solid grip and thus better view-screen shooting than anything I've handled. Big enough for a good, long-lasting battery in common with my K-7 and K-5. And rubbish to all the noise about the rubber SD card flap. It's fine. Intuitive menus, great feel to the buttons and dials and the pop-up. Maybe you need to own one to know it, but the K-01 is a solid camera capable of great images, and I didn't need to buy a single lens for it.

Drummercan - I actually don't care what you think about the K01...if it works for you great. Call me shallow but I like things to work well AND look good...so for me the K01 is a pass. There are a tonne of cameras out there and almost all of them will give world class photos....so I figure why not buy one that looks good too:)

Drummercan - 'Looks' much like photography is a matter of taste.....but there is such a thing as 'bad taste'...such as anyone who thinks the K01 isn't ugly.

Yes Anthony...beauty is relative. Relatively speaking the K01 is ugly.....and if you disagree you are in the minority....which is fine....

Clint Dunn: Well as a Canon user who used to own a 7D....I have to say this Nikon looks pretty impressive with this large a feature set at this low of a price. Canon...figure out your pricing if you plan on selling 7D2's!!!!!!

The 5D3 outsells the D800 because there are already more Canon users out there invested in Canon glass who aren't going to sell all their glass for a new Nikon D800 (well....most won't).

Timmbits: So is this made in China then, with the sensor speckles and all?

Made in China isn't always bad. My MacBook Pro was made in China....the fit/finish is impeccable. Laugh at China while you can...meanwhile the USA and most of the developed world outsource all their manufacturing to China and your own country will have no skilled workforce in 10 years.

Nice to see so many cameras coming without the AA filter. I used to shoot an M8 and moire was not an issue on a single frame I shot.

Gully Foyle: Frustration. You so badly WANT to love it but it won't let you.

USB charging, no lens hood included, SONY at its lamest; putting to shame their biggest bet yet.
And... dust on the sensor??? What sort of QC is that??? And what do you do then???

How can they ask 3000 euros for it? Even if it's the product of the century (and I would agree with that). How do you convince people this is a premium product too?

Premium class and product branding takes more than just bold moves. SONY did something that Leica dared not (and I doubt Leica has the technical expertise of SONY anyway) but it's still a SONY because of the above. That's why it's called a Cyber-shot and, sadly, it lives up (but no higher) to its name.

Well...I owned a Leica M8...and it was definitely a 'premium' experience. The build quality is second to none. With that said, the camera had a lot of warts, it wasn't perfect.
