IvanM: After just skimming through the article it would seem that once the AF micro adjustment was sorted the 'normal' af was ok and as good as live view dual pixel focussing...so was this test not flawed in that the AF was off to begin with?

Yep. A whole article comparing focusing methods, only to conclude that their test setup (in this case the device under test) was flawed.

The first thing would have been to adjust the AF, mention that "the test was done with AF tuned to show best results" and then move forward, showing that there is no real difference between the two methods.

Blaming the camera/lens pair and implying that the AF technology is weaker because of that particular pairing is dishonest.

kadardr: I want a camera with proper manual focus!

Just get a Pentax...

Hugo808: Why on shots taken with the kit lens? Surely that would be a better test as it's the one most people will use.

Pentax users are quite likely to invest in the fantastic lineup of Limited primes and thus less likely to use the kit lens, maybe?

Hugo808: But no shots taken with the kit lens. You usually use the Nikon/Canon ones, are we to assume the Pentax kit lens isn't worth having?

By all accounts, tests, etc, Pentax's 18-55 kit lens (in its three versions) is the best kit lens available. Canon's kit lens is laughable, Nikon's is good enough, Sony's is passable.

spidermoon: Silly, they don't pimp lenses. Silver lense on brass colored body is a major design flaw :)

Pentax did that in the past. Gold camera and lens, with crocodile skin in some places. Now it's a hugely expensive collectible ;)

IeraseU: I think the larger screen is a great feature. It's almost like a 'mini-tablet'. However, I do feel that the 5MP camera will be a little bit behind the times when compared to the competition, in particular the iPhone 4S.

With sensors this small, a lower pixel count is a good thing.

On How smartphones are changing digital photography article (51 comments in total)

So, basically, this article says "things are changing, but we don't know how nor where they are headed". Gee, thanks.

It's fun to see that again, Canikon users assume only their brands are worth anything. Maybe these manufacturers could give a free "moooo" t-shirt with every purchase...

bdery: "Ensure that your camera gear is protected from the elements too: there are plenty of weatherproof covers available on the market to protect your camera body and lens"

Or just buy a weatherproof camera (but you'll have to leave Canikon behind and venture in the unkown...)

My point was that if you want weather resistant, you can go Pentax and even the kit lens will have WR...

On What we want in a macro shot - Detail article (56 comments in total)

The "what" of macro photography anyone can guess on their own (the image needs to be sharp, really?). The "How" would make these articles useful. So far dpreview articles are essentially useless, as they teach nothing. Sad.
