In reply to:

KTClown: Happy with my PL5, I see no need for a PL6 in my camera bag.

Maybe this is a weird idea, but it could be that buying cameras is something people do when they don't already own one they're happy with ..

Always this nagging by current owners of a successors being worthy or not, it's not about you! There's always somebody looking for a new camera, and there's always new boxes being dropped off at the stores, might as well make it a 6 for the next batch .. just go out use what you've got, and be happy for those who DO need a new camera that they can now appreciate with a metal finish and red ring.

In reply to:

Michael_13: Is the lens even better than the pankake from GM1?

It's much better at shooting 42mm that's for sure.

Indeed it has. About a year, or two.

It says "announced in May 2014" above, but it was 2013 folks, 2013!

Anybody who's concerned about the lack of viewfinder, i guess this one will do: http://voigtlander.de/cms/voigtlaender/voigtlaender_cms.nsf/id/pa_asan6m4dwz.html

And you can just imagine the slight crop in the framelines yourself, or use tape. ;-)

Maklike Tier: Geez, it's a bit of a beast. Will it also be bundled as part of a kit with the XT-1??

It's actually the camera that's smaller than it looks. ;) And surely it will be a kit, that's the whole point being the only WR lens so far, to compliment the X-T1 body.

On Leica T (Typ 701) First Impressions Review preview (2182 comments in total)

Say what you want, but this is a billion times better than the Lunar. :)

It's way more interesting than the X Vario and even X2 as well. Comparisons aside, this will most definitely be a success, i know it. Looks like finally a more than useful tool for the wealthy masses, and even fanatics should be able to save up for it.

Being Leica it could just as well have been €3K body only, but it isn't. Not to say they've become mainstream, but it's doable for those looking for a little exclusivity, and there's nothing wrong with that! At least not in this case, as it seem to be quite well thought out for practical use - so why not.

One might even say it's quite progressive with the new touchscreen interface. (i wonder if the hatred towards touch on cameras has dialed down yet, because it definitely does benefit many aspects of fast and intuitive operation imho.)

On Ricoh announces medium-format Pentax 645Z article (157 comments in total)
In reply to:

pitaw: Articulating monitor or fixed ???...seems there's a conflicting report.

Love to see some samples soon.

pitaw, did you really just read the specs and not even look at the product images? (there's always some or a few errors in dpreview specs, i think that's a rule here)

In reply to:

Red G8R: Based on the photos, the build quality looks great. But I'm not keen on anything that requires manual focus.

They always make it look nice in product shots. But it's just plastic like the others. These show it a little better:
http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1039949-REG/rokinon_rk12m_fx_12mm_f_2_0_ncs_cs.html

Not that there's anything wrong with it, but it probably won't feel very expensive, as it isn't so that's fine. There isn't much focusing to do with superwides so that shouldn't be much of a problem.

On Olympus OM-D E-M10 Review preview (317 comments in total)
In reply to:

turvyT: I have no particular interest either in this OM10 nor in the Pentax k3. But I'm curious about new cameras and like to be informed. K3 was announced almost half a year ago. OM10, less than two months. Still waiting for K3 review --or for Godot in this fully interesting exercise in surrealism by Dpreview. Personally I don't believe anymore in any of the excuses Dpreview has been producing about the lack of interest in the Pentax K3 by readers. I'm now convinced that under those foggy words of lame excuse there is only a lack of respect for people interested in new cameras and camera's technology.

I'm amazed how upset people can get about cameras 'receiving' reviews or not. DPR is just a website with a few people writing down their thoughts about stuff they get their hands on, what exactly do you expect will change after they've given it some golden banner or not. The pros and cons are not set in stone, they're different for everyone. Pentax will be Pentax, and Olympus will be Olympus etc. What you like, need or don't is as personal as it gets, and these days all you need to know is online almost instantly at the day of release, and more so when they've hit the stores, not to mention going out there and hold one yourself. Point is, why do you people so desperately need dpreview to hold your hand?

In reply to:

Brilliantine Stick Inesct: Nikon and Canon are rapidly becoming dinosaurs. Mirrorless cameras will kill their business model. The mirror less efforts from both these guys have been poor. Olympus and Fuji are showing the way.

Just had to reply to the dinosaur comment didn't you D1N0. :-)

Actually only about 1 stop better than a Olympus E-P5.

Donnie G: There's nothing wrong with dressing up/pimping out/personalizing/customizing your gear. Thanks Fuji for offering some fun choices.

The wrong is in the £130 part of the story imho.

JaimeA: Please do not post any comments until we get a full review of the Fuji X-E2.
How long can we wait???
The camera appeared months ago and has been on sale since.
No excuses please.

JDThomas, you're such a daredevil.

Adrian Tung: Would be nice if they also offered alternate top/bottom plate colours (e.g. silver, black, chrome).

And if they are going the Leica route, offer engraved signature/text as well?

BRASS please. :)

In reply to:

kimchiflower: They look the same except for an added converter lens on the end. Aside from the 8.5mm, I can't see what the other can offer that is not already available.

I suspect these will be manual focus only, and the 12 & 25mm are already suitab;e covered by other MFT glass.

It's nice to see choice and another manufacturer signing up, but these would have to mainly compete on price.

"Aside from the 8.5mm" ?

That one alone is enough to start jumping up and down imho. The others are a bonus, and all will compete on PERFORMANCE, BUILT and their CINEMA capabilities. Where a consistent outer body for a range of lenses is a huge advantage with external focus pulling equipment etc.

In reply to:

Paul Guba: Great to see some more makers enter the market. Obviously they feel there is a profit to be made.

They're also actually made for APSC or even FF and thus HUGE. There are only about two Samyang's natively for MFT.

In reply to:

reginalddwight: Some people view these lenses as half empty, while I see them as half full.

In case of the Pentax Q it's more like 20% full.

The camera is one thing, but wouldn't this be a lot more useful if the lens was a bit faster ?? Only F2.8 for a 45mm equivalent .. I'm sure it's razor sharp, but just seems like such a waste of opportunity. And it's not like a 30/1.8 on apsc hasn't been done before .. it probably wouldn't add much to the cost at all - only make it much more appealing.
