Great news 28 looks nice as does the 90, the 35m 1.4 is too big for me, Would prefer if they bought over the compact and fast f2 from the RX1, which I think is the best compromise between being compact and fast. the Sony 7s just became a much better buying prospect

Kangaroo Court: Why does this video reek of Infomercial? Im sure none of it is a lie, this camera is perfectly capable of this shoot, but what I see is a photographer with skill being in very nice places with nice things to shoot. This could have been done with any Fuji or MFT or Samsung (or DSLR for that matter). Im just not seeing why using the A6k in particular was the "key" to these results.

Any help here? Did he just draw a name out of a hat and happened to choose Sony? Also, did I hear him say apsc is a good choice bc it gives a little more DOF??

Why do infomercials try to look like an impartial review?
you need to turn this on its head.

I don't see many comments just saying what a great article this is, nice to see it in use real world use rather than lab and just the testament of the reviewer. The The quality of the photography and video was great. please put up some stills.

Looks like styling after the behemoth and well regarded 67 II

And Ricoh have got a 3D printer, some way to go yet I recon.

attomole: So what you need is two systems,
As a Travel and compact system camera go MFT with few preferred dedicated small lenses, it will always be a keeper for that situation
AND
Full frame DSLR or Sony A7 when IQ is critical and kit size no issue

Don't Bother with APSC its the worst of both worlds, don't bother with compact Zoom either. carry a small MFT rig or use your Phone as an EDC option.
Funds allowing of course :-)

@camley for an everyday cary yes, For travel I would like a system camera and lenses, I think MFT is easily the best for this.

@justin23 I agree but MFT does better because of the dedicated lens selection. Although the A6000 / Fuji X comes close you end up with quite a bulky set of lenses rivalling full frame. but nothing hovers up light like full frame camera and big system lenses, there just isn't the equivalent.

completelyrandomstuff: I was hoping there would be a full frame mirrorless round up. It would be funny to see people argue why Sony shouldn't have won.

Critically its missing a red dot, ;-)

On Real-world test: Nikon D750 at the Museum of Flight article (281 comments in total)

I think that is a very useful demonstration of the sensitivity and dynamic range of modern full frame sensors, would be interesting to see what and near as equivalent uFT set up would do under the same circumstances (honestly not just trolling) based on my experience of ageing APSC Nikon, this is astonishing, but I am seriously thinking of jumping ship for (uFT Pana GX7 or OLY something ) and three decent compact primes, as I have had it with bulky DLSR gear

On Mid-range Mirrorless camera roundup 2013 article (295 comments in total)

What bothers me about the A6000, is not the lack of system lenses, I'm sure they will fill out, but that Sony don't have a dedicated mount for APSC any more, not so bad as you can fit FE lenses, What this means is there won't be a range of compact APSC lenses, like with Nikons DSLR's some OK kit Zooms and bulky and expensive primes and pro glass designed for FE.

if you want a genuinely compact system camera u 4/3 seems a better choice

In reply to:

maljo@inreach.com: Preferred the image before it was cropped. I don't think there was "way too much foreground" in the pre cropped image. The final image has dramatic light but is not quite compelling as a composition, in my opinion.

Thanks for posting your image and your thoughts, though.

maljo

Me too!, and I prefer the original colour and contrast! still v good though

On A second glance: two takes on the Leica X article (397 comments in total)

It seems to me Leica are not getting the best of the deal with Panasonic if they can't source a descent EVF, I don't mind them enveloping the lens performance WRT maximum apature settings but that should be clear in their marketing also

They make beautiful Camears and this is one. that also stand out as great desingn against any manufactured product what ever it is . Leica is benchmark for industrial design. but they need a better technology exchange from theier marketing agreement with Pana, and get Sony sensors for Petes sake!

I wonder why they didn't make full use of the image circle and sensor area for the 1:1 crop

Tom Caldwell: Missed the obvious - compare the LX100 with the GM1 or GM5.

That was my feeling But GX7 makes the point more strongly. not much bigger and you are in Oly OM territory and A6000.. if compact packaging is what you are after the little sony is still king (all be it with compromised ergonomics)

On Fujifilm X100T (beta) real-world samples article (105 comments in total)

One thing that holds me off this camera which otherwise I really like, is you can't really throw out the background with blur, just a bit more would have me hooked, the couple of guys playing Jazz is typical of what I mean, you want an impression of the environment but not intruding (i would take this to black and white to get rid of the horrid colors also)

I know there are other rigs in the Fuji line up which do this better, but it seems this is the circumstance for which the X100 series is made

doady: Would be an interesting camera for me, if not for the totally obnoxious "LUMIX" lettering on the front.

put a red dot on the Gaffa tape and save yourself 200 quid to boot!

vroger1: Anyone think there'll be a "Leica" version?? They didn't bother with the GM1- buth this one will sell like hotcackes...I think.

I had to read through all the press releases a couple of times to figure out they had not allready, looks like the ideal set up to stick a red dot on. although for interchangeable lens cameras they hav gone for APSC or full frame

On Opinion: Bring on the 70-200mm equivalents article (340 comments in total)
In reply to:

Harry S: Interestingly, almost nobody bought the original Sigma 50-150mm 2.8. Having owned one myself I could never get my head around that, it's so small and light compared to the 70-200s, perfect for APS-C cameras.

See also, Sigma 100-300mm f4. How did that never take off?! Excellent bridge between big 2.8 primes and variable aperture 70-300s etc.

I think the 70 to 200 2.8 is a great works tool for a pro photographer, I'm not sure APSC buyers were/ are looking for a shrunken version of the same lens, somthing like a Tamron 90 2.8 macro, might be a more fun lightweight and versatile purchase, if your not making a living of of it, and you already have a superzoom or one of the longer standard zooms.
