digilux: I still don't get the point of this vid....

It's rather simple: It tries to trigger emotional reactions, should make you wanna go shooting and should make you wanna buy a Camera. ;)

In reply to:

burnin: Actually, it reveals Olympus as being dickheads for leaving out 5-axis image stabilization in the OM-D E-M10.

Yeah maybe...
On the other hand: The sensor is much smaller... so there is more room for the IBIS.

On Panasonic announces Leica DG Summilux 15mm F1.7, and GM1 kit news story (277 comments in total)
In reply to:

Peiasdf: Not super expensive but 20 f/1.7 is likely a way better deal. If this is f/1.4 or f/1.2 then that's different.

How come m4/3 isn't making fast and super-fast normal wide? The smaller sensor size should make it easier than Fuji.

Each to it's own but there is enough shallow DOF with 1.7 or 1.8 in my opinion. I own some if these MFT lenses and I think it's enough.
The difference to APS-C is negligible.
If you really want much more shallow DOF, you have to go full frame and then you have to deal with quite bigger lenses.
That's it.

In reply to:

Cane: What's the purpose of going with such a small body if the lens sticks out this much? If you of manage to get it in a pocket, people are gonna think your too happy to see them.

Well it's not that big. It just looks big cause the GM1 is so tiny.
But yeah you are right, hardly fits into pants.
However you can detach lens from body if you really need to but it in your pants.

What do you mean? There is plenty.
15 1.7, 20 1.7, 25 1.8, 17 1.8, 25 1.4
and the Voigtländer 17,5 0.95 and 25 0.95

On Olympus OM-D E-M10 Review preview (269 comments in total)
In reply to:

Marty4650: At this price point, with a fairly good EVF built in, and the incredible feature set.... we can pretty much assume that the Pen series is dead.

Perhaps not officially, but defacto.

Would anyone buy an EPL5 for around the same price?
Does the EP5 make any sense now?

The Pen Mini might be the only survivor, for those who must have the absolute smallest and cheapest.

Well... maybe.
In this interview, one of the Oly marketing guys talks about the positioning of the PEN vs. the OM-D.

In reply to:

SHood: "Both new lenses are scheduled to be released from 2015 onwards."

I am a little concerned that we may not see one or both of these lenses until 2016.

Yeah I agree, we probably won't have them in our hands before 2016. Probably they will be released in late 2015 and then will ship rather slowly the first few months.
We will see.
More time to save some money ^^

In reply to:

xpanded: Now that just freed one of the function buttons. Thank you VERY much Olympus.

Another request for focus peaking please :-)

Yeah right :), really cool. Thanks Olympus!

About the focus peaking: Would be great, but I guess it's naive to hope for it. It's a way to important feature. They'll save this as a "must buy" argument for the successor of the E-M5, I'm sure about that.

On Olympus PEN E-P5 Preview preview (380 comments in total)
In reply to:

mrmiguel: I guess we know what the next OM-D camera will have! If the next gen OM-D has the same specs, I might be tempted to upgrade just for the Flash Sync and Shutter Speed improvements. The WiFi would take care of the family portrait sessions (although a $20 remote shutter release could do the job, too :) )

Yep I thought the same.
However I hope the next OM-D will not just have these features but also a new sensor with better High ISO performance.

In reply to:

Sergey Borachev: The only problem in an otherwise perfect little camera is the lack of a built-in EVF.

Well maybe it simply does not fit in there ^^
Get the OM-D, it offers exactly what you ask for.

In reply to:

NZ Scott: If this had weather sealing and a built-in EVF I would buy it immediately.

Of course, the OM-D E-M5 has those features, but I don't like the way that camera handles.

What do you not like about how the OM-D handles?

Did you already test the E-P5? How do you know it handles different from the OM-D?
I guess it will be quite similar... besides the fact that the E-P5 has probably less controls than the OM-D.

On Adobe Photoshop CC: What it means for photographers news story (1879 comments in total)
In reply to:

keeponkeepingon: Wow.

"How do you justify the price increase to photographers?

Last year we actually cut the price of Lightroom in half in order to open it up to a broader market of photographers."

The question was about creative cloud or photoshop. Shame on dpreview for not calling him on this non sequitur

I agree, this "Q & A" is a joke! It's just even more marketing blahblah

On Lightroom 5 Public Beta: What's New article (90 comments in total)
In reply to:

kcccc: Why nobody here mentions inclusion of anti-blur function, which has attracted lots of rumors in PS, in LR5? That alone is worth the upgrade.

You mean the new Photoshop Filter "shake reduction"?
As far as I know, that is only included in the upcomming Photoshop CC.
What makes you think it is also included in Lightroom? Did you test? Is it there?
I don't have the beta... so I don't know. But I thought that it's a PS only feature.
Or do you have other information?
Does anyone have?

In reply to:

Edymagno: Adobe's new brilliant idea is based on the premise that everybody has a fast non-intermitent internet connection 24/7/365. That is only truth if you live in a major city. What happens if you live in a rural place or if you need to work while in location in some far away land? Will I need to carry a satellite dish along my tripod, cameras and lenses?

Adobe CC runs for 30 days without internet connection

On More pictures leak of purported Olympus PEN 'E-P5' news story (244 comments in total)
In reply to:

Simon Zeev: I have the E-PL2 with the VF-2 EVF. I love the combo but I would prefer the EVF
built in the camera. Why they don't do it?
I really don't need a WiFi (but maybe someone need)

Well ianp5a that "lump" also contains the electronics of the 5 axis image stabiliser as far as I know. It's not just because of the built in EVF.

In reply to:

Earthlight: No harnessing the powers of graphics cards? That is a pity. What about support for 10-bit displays?

It would also be nice to create panoramas in LR.

@Stu 5: You maybe don't understand what Earthlight was asking for. He asks to use the power of modern GPUs.
(More) RAM is doing something COMPLETELY different.

On Just deployed: New dpreview.com forums system news story (736 comments in total)

I also don't see any use of the voting system. At least not as long as it is not transparent. There are some trolls in the forums who vote down everything they don't like.
Some people just show some pictures and ask for C&C... and all they get is a bunch of "thumps down".
That's just completely useless.
"thumps up" and "complain" are ok. But "thumps down" is of no use at all. It's just a tool for trolls to vote down whatever they hate or disagree with.

Timmbits: I don't care!
Korea has decided to start hunting whales,
and I am participating in the international boycott of all Korean products!

Well that's not really Samsungs fault.
However, I agree that Korean products should be boycotted for this ridiculous step into whale hunting.
