  • If someone tried to give me this camera as a gift, I would take it.

    Then I would put it on ebay, and sell it for $1,850, since it is currently out of stock at Amazon. Then, I would use the part of...

  • I probably didn't express myself well enough.... "the cameras I would consider the least fun to use..... Any full camera EXCEPT the Sony 7R and RX1." Which means I consider those two cameras ...
  • Even so, it is still quite an honor to be among the top ten GAS afflicted! :-)
  • I think a lens like that would probably cost more like $700 0r $750, but would be well worth it. It would occupy the space between the $500 12-50mm lens, and the $1000 12-40mm f/2.8 nicely. It just ...
  • I have only used three M4/3 cameras... the EP1, EPL2 and the EM5. Between those three, the EM5 is my absolute favorite, and is "the most fun to use." It has just the right combination of size, ...
  • Of course, we all would like to see lower lens prices. Especially at the high end. No one wants to pay more their lenses. But are the mFT high end lenses over priced compared to other formats? Lets ...
  • You have stated it perfectly. I am really tired of seeing people compare a pro grade magnesium bodied GH4 or EM1 with a high grade lens compared to an entry level all plastic Canon or Nikon DSLR ...
  • Some folks have criticized M4/3 for having "too many very similar lenses." At last count, there were seventeen different normal zoom lenses! And some apply to more than one category. 8 Budget ...
  • Their mistake was getting their 1" sensor from Aptina, rather than from Sony. Compare Nikon 1 samples to Sony RX100 samples and see for yourself. Same size sensor, big difference in results.

  • I think Darwin tells us this happens by random selection. Then and the random changes might have beneficial or harmful results. Whenever the results are beneficial (as in the example of evolving ...
  • Replied in Here's why
    There are a few reasons for this. First of all Amazon isn't the seller on some listings, even though you are buying it through Amazon. In some cases, they are Amazon partners, who pay Amazon a ...
  • ... is to sell all your big cameras, then go to ebay and buy a parts only Nikon D2H for around $30 to impress the natives with, then take all your photos with the exquisite GM1 and a handful of ...
  • Someday.... all these drones will form a union.... and demand actual wages.

    And when that happens we will be so dependent on them, that we will give them anything they want, so we can stay planted...

  • And the sixth posts it on Dpreview... who now has more drones than people as website memebers.

  • There is nothing preventing anyone from mounting a Canon 1Dx to a drone large enough to lift the weight, if outstanding image quality is required.

    Right now, people are all jazzed up over the...
