  • Ouch. I had higher hopes for the ISO range, that the noise reduction fall-off would be gentle out to 1200 ISO, but no. It appears you get one stop only over 1:1.6 and two stops less than top of the...

  • A great article! I hope it eliminates some confusion. It handles the apples and oranges idea of "equivalence" very well. From a semiconductor manufacturer's point of view, a bit of detail can be...

  • The Nikkor 80-400mm FX zooms are $1850 and $2700 WITHOUT the camera. The new 18-300mm DX zoom is not eligible for comparison here because the long end is f6.3. The older version is $900, Although...

  • The previous batch of "serious" bridge cameras had 5/8 to 2/3 inch sensors (1:1.7 or 1:1.6). A few of them also had fast lenses, f1.8 to f2.5 on the Zuiko-baked versions, for example; so the fast...

  • Noise, damn noise. Go to DpReview's noise page on RX100-II and have a look. In the raw section choose two other cameras with Sony sensors, OM-D E-M5, Nikon D5100, and a column for the 12-megapixel...

  • The ongoing camera story stays interesting precisely because photographic performance and size remain in conflict. The fast glass recipe on intermediate size sensors is a good one. The cost is...

  • I think my initial enthusiasm for this new one-inch camera was very high. I always feel great about fast lenses because they allow you to step away from ISO settings that require heavy noise...

  • One of the interesting things this camera does in the market is the revelation that over-dependence on categories clouds some important issues. This Sony camera is not a DSLR nor does it have...

  • Commented on Olympus PEN E-P5 Review preview

    Does anybody remember Kodachrome 25? It was a very slow film that, given a decent camera, produced smooth, sharp slides, with great dynamic range. That's ISO 25 folks. The reason we all craved fast...

  • Commented on Olympus PEN E-P5 Review preview

    It would be nice if ratings were totally objective, yes. Even when a consistent attempt is made for objectivity, small mistakes are made because there is a need for subtle snobbery felt as a means...

  • See math above, gmke...

  • Earthquake. Bye, bye, Canon GX1-MK-II. Faster glass, better sensor, All of a sudden, the fast glass, 2/3 sensor cameras are irrelevant too, except that they cost quite a bit less. Sony, premiere...

  • Commented on Olympus PEN E-P5 Review preview

    Agreed. This is something that should have been caught in the testing department at Olympus. It is going bit far using the word "THE" on the testing department presumed for DPreview and Imaging...

  • It is all in what a body values most. Different strokes for different folks. I've never shot sports or anything else that benefits from 10 fps. I can think of a lot of different reasons to like a...

  • As camera makers continue to fiddle with the question of what makes for a "more convenient form factor," all of the answers have trade-offs. It is almost as if it is impossible to think about...

  • Start by taking the Nikon brand off the champagne table. We are left with a familiar question. Is there al sensor format between FourThirds and 1:1.6 (two-thirds) that we can wrap a conveniently...

  • I am not sure who makes sensor in EM-1 or EM-10. The fact that a Panasonic part number is visible on the die makes life interesting, and most think it is a damning piece of evidence. If you work...

  • Agreed. Wouldn't it be nice if Canon used Sony sensors like the one in the OM-D E-M5? Or... Wouldn't it be nice if we could get an m.Zuiko or leica f2.0 to f3.9 pancake lens? At the moment, the...
