peevee1: As usual, America innovates while Japan polishes the old turd to mirror-like quality and Germany swindles people with more money than brains. :)
Ren Ng, founder and chairman of lytro was born in Malaysia, emigrated to Australia at the age of nine. I doubt he'd call himself American.
@Peevee1, please tell us what your great innovative gift to the world is. I'd hate to think you would make such an obnoxious comment when your greatest achievement was the dumb luck of being born in America.
It might also be worth noting that the vast majority of the great innovations to take us into the modern world happened in Europe.
I'll buy that lens when canon attaches it to a deserving body!
It gets very ugly when a US company that doesn’t manufacture in Australia campaigns to exclusively own an Australian cultural icon and put a long cottage tradition of artisans dating back to the 1920s out of business. To add insult to injury this Californian company that calls itself 'UGG australia', manufactures it's boots in china and runs strong international legal campaign attacking all sellers using any variant of the Australian cultural term 'UGG' for sheepskin boots.
This company proudly promotes it's campaign against the australian cottage industry here http://counterfeit.uggaustralia.com
I am thinking ill trademark 'moccasin' just to see what happens...
As a rule I don't like reviewers letting their personal feelings effect the review, but as a canon guy myself I have to admit my frustrations with canon could be reflected with similar words. Why on earth would canon put all that dated crap behind the newest and best zoom lens in the compact world?
AV Janus: Hopefully this is only the begining.Hopefuly a drrone wont replace your delivery guy.
If it does i am sure that shooting them down will become the best pass time activity
A company is planning just that in Australia
Haha, nice way of side stepping a non disclosure clause...
It was Leica 'n old Kodak. Which I Leica'd
Now it's Leica slippery Korean...
Mustafa: I've looked but can't find a description of how the black finish is obtained. Anodised? Or maybe milled from pure unobtainium.
How durable is it likely to be? Will it wear like an M?
It's a leictanium alloy
FriendlyWalkabout: I say no to the body, yes to the lenses.I hope they are made for the other apsc mirrorless mounts.
Then they sell me nothing!It's a Great business plan not to make money from people like me who want both great bodies and lenses and who are not willing to compromise on either.

l_d_allan: Maybe I'm easily impressed?
But I'm IMPRESSED ... by the rocket technology (less so with the drone + camera, but I WANT ONE).
I wonder if they'd let me drop the kids off at school and commute to work in one...
Roland Karlsson: So - what is that rocket doing?
Lifting a little and then landing?
When is that capability useful?
If you need to be told, I doubt you'd be capable of understanding!
Very cool rocket!
Huge depth of field, low ISO performance and slow shutter indicates amateur nonsense. Real professionals know pixels matter more than the bigger picture!!! :p
No auto composition function!No auto talent function!
= No buy!
FriendlyWalkabout: Why does this xt1 rate higher than my branded camera? Dpreview is soooo biased!
FriendlyWalkabout: @dpreview, that's all well and good, but where is the canon 5D mark IV review? That's what I want to see! ;)
I want to see the Nikon D810 review too. I wish they would hurry up about it!

Lawrencew: Any suggestion as to why the video quality from the X-T1 and the X-E2 is so poor?
Is it something that can be addressed in a firmware fix down the line, or is it something inherent in the sensor?
I heard some where it's an xtrans thing making video difficult.
