ZoomZoom Diva: I bought the Sony a77MkII as a replacement for the antique Konica-Minolta 7D I was using for years. There is an adaptation curve to get used to the EVF over the optical I was used to, and a learning curve to adapt to how it shoots, but I am starting to prefer that it more precisely gives you what the finished product will look like over the OVF and I absolutely LOVE the articulated screen.

I bought mine at the end of June. How long does it take to test the camera?

If it's anything like the other camera reviews, it'll be when the competition has something better out

walgarch: I'm a Pentax user and I'm completely appalled by how some Pentaxians are acting. It's as if some people need something to complain about otherwise they're not happy.

I for one congratulate how well Fujifilm is doing. I believe in their philosophy as strongly as I do in Pentax's. But honestly, there are some users who are really killing my experience here on DPR.

Thank you for the review Andy!

I understand that by complaining about the complainers, I am too participating in the problem. I've kept my mouth shut for so long because of that. But when it's starting to affect my enjoyment of DPR, I'm sorry, but I need to say something. What I feel worst about is that I'm now derailing the X-T1 review thread.

I'm sorry, but I wont be engaging in anymore discussion here so I don't compound the problem.

xmeda: Sigma, please stop making lenses for Nikon :D

Yes, because less competition is exactly what Nikon wants

f8BeThereToo: Nikon isn't the only large company that ignores a serious hardware defect that affects many people.

Apple had a problem with a third-party part in some of its MacBook Pro models. The part failure required replacing the entire motherboard which is an expensive repair.

The online reports about the problem continued for over a year before Apple announced a program similar to Nikon's. Unfortunately, Apple replaced the part with an identical part and some people experienced multiple failures.

To add insult to injury the warranty extension wasn't long enough. Some people experienced a premature failure after the warranty expired while others who had the part replaced under the extended warranty got burned again when it failed after the warranty expired.

The only people who think that Apple's solution was fair are those who think that the useful life of a high-end computer is only three years…

I do not recall if Apple was hit with a class-action lawsuit.

So the point you're making is that we shouldn't buy Apple either?

I don't think your apples to oranges comparison (I'm sorry, it's a really bad pun... but it works) is really suitable here. It just makes them both bad companies.
