So no A7 in the comparison tool? I think most who are interested in these want to compare between the A7 and A7R, rather than 'the competition'. Ok that's nice to compare as well, but considering how many words were written comparing the two, especially that the 'A7 images look nicer' it would be somewhat useful to actually be able to compare the two ourselves.
cxsparc: Strange review. Sounds to me like a general negative attitude towards the A7s. Example: "initial disappointment over twodeck custom menu", or "EVF as means to an end". Then, I also noticed that the A7 shots (example bearded man shot from right side at Jack Daniels) were badly focussed. But in that case, I also noticed that the shot was done with the kit at maximum zoom = 70 mm and 1/60 or similar, so probably simply shaken. And if I would notice such a problem, I'd make a to b tests with the same lens and check out what is going on.
Considering the lens has OSS, one should be able to expect to be able to shoot hand held at 1/60th @ 70mm. Hell you should be able to get 'some' decent hit rate without OSS @ 70mm @ 1/60th.
Alejandro Ruiz: Congratulations for the subtle way "Some people might find a focal length of 35mm limiting" is illustrated by the girl photo. Love this camera but 35 mm severely compromises portraiture, unless the model is in the center of the frame, you gonna get in trouble with her...Why there is no 50 mm fixed lens in the market ?
Sigma DP3M? Or if you mean 50mm equiv, Ricoh GXR A12 50mm or even the DP2M.
Cool, can't wait for Pentax to come out with an MX-1 style version of this with brass plates and MX-1 good looks.
nandyt: I can't believe it :( after much research I picked up the XE-1 with 18-55 kit lens for 1K$ just last week. Now I have an "Old" model when I have hardly started using it. What a shame!
Would it be recommendable to sell it and buy this?Feeling Buyer's Remorse like anything! :(
The new one costs 40% more than you paid your X-E1.
Ulfric M Douglas: Never mind the size : this is Panasonic's FIRST GF (I said it) model with a competitive up-to-date sensor.
What's to say this isn't the sensor from the GF6?
New 15mm f1.7 'Leica' with aperture control on the lens + GM1 surely is the biggest sign yet of a Leica rebadge of exactly that combo.
Bjorn_L: What an incredibly well specified superzoom. Larger sensor, relatively fast lens, weather sealed, seems to at least give a nod to manual controls. I am not in the market for a such a device but if it is good at video I might get it regardless to compliment my DSLR.I think I'll wait for an indepth review with the dxo ratings and such before I get too excited. We've all seen well specified disappointments before.
Where did you see that it was weather sealed?
ET2: " More unique is that each lens module has its own sensor and shutter mechanism"
How is that a copy of Nikon 1?
They could be suing over a registered design, rather than any patents or functions - In this regard it does look strikingly similar.
That said, have these even been released yet?
limlh: Nothing is mentioned about the rumored multi-pattern wb. If true, this must be the best feature of the k-3.
@ ayoh - THIS IS NOT A REVIEW. The figures quoted are given by the manufacturer based on the CIPA standard, which has nothing at all to do with DPR. DPR have no idea yet how many shots your stupid camera can take without flash enabled, so please, get over it.
maxola67: More 200 posts for K3 and only 60 ones for D610 - Nikon doesn't make interests.
Yeah wishful thinking. D610 is such a mild 'update' that nobody really cares. People will just buy it instead of D600 because a) it replaces it and b) it doesn't have the oil issue (in theory). The 'D610' has been out for a year already, there's nothing to discuss.
tkbslc: Noise is now on par with Canon APS-C (70D)
Erm, it has been for a while, the sensor in the E-P5 has been used by Olympus for 18 months or so.
Francis Sawyer: What's up with the abysmal resolution of the screen, though?
Care to point out one that is better?
So where are the articles on what the Surface Pro 2 means to photographers?
abortabort: Seriously? The 16-28mm is a great lens, but 5 TIMES the price?! Samyang's cine versions are something like $50 more, if that. I suppose this will still be cheaper than the competition though.
The differences are almost entirely mechanical, considering the largest cost in optical designs are the optics themselves the Samyang scenario 'should' be the rule. That said, the far more limited production runs will increase costs per unit substantially.

Paul Storm: dammit sigma, now i have to spend $60 just to update my lens firmware!
@ rambarra - Oh good so you can adjust the MA at different focus distances? Yeah I thought so.
Oh and Canon not offering firmware updates is a bad thing, not a good thing. These lens don't 'need' an update, but it will improve the already excellent performance. How many Canon lenses is this the case for?
tinzi1: Sigma is the ONLY company which generous enough to offer its user a device to adjust ALL of its future lens' WITHOUT have the user paying for shipping, probable damage during transporting, lens update, and time waiting. If you got 2 lemons from Nikon and 3 lemons from Canon, U got 5 lens' to ship out; if you got 5 lemons from Sigma, it's this one usb dock...just think a bit ahead man, it doesn't requires Algebra to figure this out.
As can m43's, E-Mount, X Mount, NX mount, CX mount.
vwsjr: This just makes me trust Sigma even less. I've never had to update firmware on any Nikon lens, or any brand lens for that matter. Now Sigma comes out with this cheap piece of hardware you have to buy to update firmware, and all of the sudden multiple lenses need updating? It's just a gimmick and it simply allows them to release lenses with poorly tested firmware.
Great, one less numpty to push back delivery dates on new lenses ;) Keep buying your overpriced Nikkors and enjoy. Oh and that is because there is no facility in the mount design of your precious Nikon to update firmware - they have to be recalibrated by Nikon... Enjoy.
Modern mounts actually have this facility (as they were born in a digital age) including m43's, Fuji X, E-Mount, NX mount, Nikon 1 (there's your precious Nikon again - wonder why their 1 system has this facility?).
maxola67: And what about lens changing under water?Without that this device wouldn't be considered waterproof)))
I hope that is sarcasm?
