The Canikon Colossus: HAHA! Nikon got Shut Out!
Nikon better pay that dpreview bill or else!!
Jim Salvas: With the recent price drop, the E-M1 should have been included in the previous camera group. It's now under $1,000.
Oly with upgrade, please do a recount😊
Leica Q is Ricoh GR sharp, very nice.
Bueche: Quote from the X-A2 summary....." It uses a 16MP APS-C sensor with a traditional Bayer array, rather than the X-Trans array used by other X-mount cameras.This has disadvantages (X-Trans sensors do punch above their weight a little when it comes to output resolution) but the upside is that Raw files from the X-A2 are more widely supported by third-party Raw converters."
This is (it has to be!!) an extremely bad joke! X-trans is a complete failure when it comes to detail reproduction. It can't handle greenery, foliage or anything else with lots of fine detail without making a mess of everything. Just look at all x-trans discussions going on at the Fuji forum.
Fuji, would do themselves a great thing by releasing an XPRO or XT bayer body. The color is awesome on the X-A2 and microcontrast is all there take a look at the comparsion chart even better download the raws for yourself. Xtrans I don't think is going to work with video anyhow and the bayer would simplify a lot raw conversion workflows. I wish they would get a high end bayer camera out.
photomedium: Ferrari/Lamborghini (sony/leica) vs. kia/hyundai(any of the others):which one should I buy? LOL
that's not to say i don't want that Sony tho. I just won't travel much with it and only use in safe neighborhoods.
you can't pocket that Ferrari and Lamb. you will constantly be worrying about the lens not so much the case with others. Let's see you go around questionable neighborhoods taking pics with those, lol. These are for mostly street shooting, think about that.
Ricoh at 6400, no NR applied or sharpening, but slightly tweaked in photoshop. http://www.dpreview.com/galleries/2427869311/photos/3319393/_r230946
For usability it's very hard to beat the Ricoh Gr II not to mention the great image quality, price point and firmware upgrades the company provides. To me this is the japanese leica.
They never mentioned the snap focus in the "What we liked" it works great in low light. I thought these were serious reviewers, not fair at all. Image quality is great at 3200 for those that like a more filmic look you can add noise reduction and make it look like HD tv if you like too, these guys must be kidding. At the very least spend a day with it before reviewing it, sheesh!
Robert Garcia NYC: I really love the way they handled the grain. I'm a film guy so this is right up my alley.
haha, the sample images not the comparison thingy.
Wild Light: that Leica is absolute JUNK. Download the raw files of the studio comparison at 100 ISO and resize the Leica to the Sony a7r II, view them side by side. There is so much of a difference that it is a non contest. IN other shots, the banding at low ISO without any adjustment is completely and utterly atrocious.
I compare the a7r II with the SL because the SL is the best that Leica has to offer, like the a7r II for Sony. The Leica cost far more and is relatively incapable.
I have a feeling this will ruin Leica. No one in their right mind will buy this.
The chart images aren't that great but the sample images are. I like the look but not the price.
I really love the way they handled the grain. I'm a film guy so this is right up my alley.
Fuji needs IBIS/better low light focus/speed and a friendly Xtrans.
I love grain in my images reminds me of film.
This is blurry texture.
Looks very good up to ISO 800
Sony kills the competition again. Nice camera.
