biza43: These actually make sense, it's just a downsize from their similar range for DSLRs. Believe or not, I have yet to find a good backpack that can take my E-M1 and lens, plus a small laptop, plus a variety of miscellaneous stuff, for travel.

This might be it, finally.

Yes, it only fits up to 11' laptop, too small.

It's really easy to badmouth a product without having used it...

So is the trend nowadays, with all these couch photographers who look at specs, product pictures, don't use said product, but are at ease to pass judgment...

Sad...

On 'See Impossible': Canon counts down to... something. article (1667 comments in total)

I think that a message that aims to inspire and challenge people to boost their creativity in imaging, is lost amongst the techno nerds and equipment focused inhabitants of Dpreview...

Have people actually seen the work that is featured in the microsite? Quite inspiring, but that's me, I much prefer to see the work of other photographers and imagers, than discussing frustrations and blaming equipment for my failures...

I am sure the LX100 will be a fantastic compact camera. However, for someone on a tight budget (like myself) I can highly recommend the GX1 with the 12-32 lens. I know the lens is slower, but it's good nonetheless.

Why Panasonic decided not to put a touch screen on the LX100 is beyond comprehension...

This is a ridiculous report, missing the MF camera, and the development of the new FF camera from Pentax...

If you are tired, look elsewhere. I like them.

On Leica T (Typ 701) First Impressions Review preview (2305 comments in total)

Expensive? That is relative. I am sure in the right hands will produce superb pictures. If you don't have the Money, why complain? I don't have the Money to buy it, but I can recognise it will be a hit. Leicas were always expensive, will be always expensive.

The camera body is made in Portugal, good for my country!

It works fine on my computer. I really do not understand who would read this on a phone, with small screen? It's really nice on a big screen, some great photos.

This is of course a very good photo. But I find the branch in the foreground is intrusive and unnecessary.

In reply to:

skimble: the camera has something but is missing good base lenses to bring out that something. So right now I hang on to my money till I see better or a great Xpro 1 deal comes along.

Are you serious, so you are saying that from roughly 60 EOS lenses available, there are no good base ones??? Then you go on rambling about the XPro1, which is a totally different class of camera??? Pure nonsense...

Rod McD: "It was decided to focus on portraits, landscapes and still lifes". Personally I'll be interested to see the landscape lens(es). I'm assuming that they'd have to be looking at a couple of FLs (say 24mm & 35mm at the very least). And I sincerely hope that they're going to make them significantly smaller and lighter than this one. Zeiss need to understand that size and weight can be a compromise too. Serious landscapers will want lighter kit if they've got to carry them and all the hiking gear on a two week trek.......

I don't care too much for AF, and have no interest in the other lenses.

For landscapes, they have a 18mm, 21mm, and 25mm lenses for several digital mounts. But in this area, for example Canon already has two really good prime lenses, both tilt and shift:17 and 24mm.
Personally, I use the Zeiss 25 f/2 on my Canon 6D, and I am really happy with the quality.

In reply to:

love_them_all: I'm take a wild guess. This lens will cost about the same, if not more than the Leica APO 50/2 M. It's aim the luxury market where owners could sleep better at night knowing they have the bragging rights on certain things. :)

Wrong. It's market will be pros and enthusiastic photographers who need the ultimate image quality from combining a top quality lens with top quality sensors available today, in 35mm format. Simple. If you don´t have enough money, or do not need it, move on, there are other good lenses around.

In reply to:

RobAHu: Talk to me when it comes with AF.

Oh, so you need AF for landscapes, portraits, and product photography? Really? The intended audience (pros and enthusiastic hobbyists) probably know a thing or two about manually focusing lenses, I would say...

On 5 Reasons why I haven't used my DSLR for months article (591 comments in total)

No surprise here. For the type of photo example in the article, people do not need a DSLR. Todays CSC, some compacts, and even smartphones, will do. This is not new. For decades people have been using smaller than SLR cameras, compacts are not new. Good compacts are not new. Mirrorless cameras are not new, we had them since the film days.

Horses for courses.

On Canon EOS 6D preview (1035 comments in total)
In reply to:

biza43: The 6D was the camera that I was waiting for to return to full frame (after my 5DMKII). I don´t need a camera with "wow" factor, I need a camera that does what is supposed to do very well, and that is not getting in the way when I want to take pictures. I don´t need a camera with "imaginative" design, I need a camera with a well proven and tested design philosophy that I immediately feel at home with.

With the 6D, I have the same feeling that I had in 1997 when I bought the EOS 1N: this is a serious camera, understated, that will allow me to take pictures with no fuss. Robust construction and simple control layout.

If you want or need a AF system for sports or action, then get the 5DMKIII or 1DX.

Canon now have a complete series of cameras to cater for all possible users.

"All "possible" users? How about full frame range finder users, does Canon make one of those?"

All right mister KZEE, you caught me, ha, ha... I should have said "all possible DSLR users". Happy now? Get a life already...
