You have a typo on your gear shop page. 3rd down from the top under Key Features.

As an amateur I used to buy a copy every few years. I just do not need the debt or the product that much. For a monthly bill.

Really a non starter for me. No RAW, some one spiked the cool aid in the R&D dept.

As a birder, which I know I am a minority. It is dead in the water. Save my pennies for some later dslr. Absolutely nothing for me at this point.

I bet that drone cannot run as fast as me if a lion or elephant was chasing it.

Marty4650: Whenever I use the Amazon customer reviews, I completely ignore the 5 star and the 1 star reviews, and read only the 2, 3, and 4 star reviews. My thinking is the fanboys will give it 5 stars, so there is no point even reading those reviews, and 1 star reviews are mostly people upset because the UPS truck arrived when they weren't home, had a warranty problem, or simply didn't read the product description and ordered the wrong product.

You usually find the most informative reviews in the middle of the rankings.

Very sound advice.

If it weren't for DPR I would not be in this mess. I never had a problem with gear syndrome until I started coming here and reading the rave reviews for all cameras. Why have you done this to me? What have I done to you?
I think the least you could do is give ma a 50% discount on my next purchase. :)

Pentax is such a different company. Not sure what to think anymore.

How cool to be able to review these cameras. I am in Thailand. Wow, to get paid to test these would be reet.

Direct link | Posted on Jun 19, 2013 at 09:24 UTC as 32nd comment

Looks like a good camera to use with the new Sigma lenses?

I have never owned a Lieca. But isn't that a little pricey for a point and shoot?

On Just Posted: Pentax K-5 II / K-5 IIS Review article (268 comments in total)

By today's standards these cameras are extremely cheap. I see new ones going for 780-900 dollars. Which makes it a good deal if AF was fixed. I had the old K-5 and it was awful. And that is being kind. I would plop down that much money in a heart beat if I thought it was a big improvement to the original. But everyone I have talked to said save my money? For the kind of photography I like anyway. As a consequence I am selling all my Pentax gear. Just a shame to wast such good Sigma glass on a poor performing camera.

On Is this the new Leica 'Mini M'? article (370 comments in total)

You know I have never even considered Leica. I am fixing to travel some. Is the lens better than the top L lenses from Canon? Is the camera better than a top body from Canon. I know it will be smaller. I was thinking the Sigma 35 mm lens
with Canon gear. But this price range is ok with me if a superior product? Does anyone shoot with both systems?

I like it. I gives me a broader view of the content. And I have already deleted pics that do not really look right there. So, have to wait and see. But for now I think it is fine.
