  • LOL I think Phase One or another MF maker with their true 80MP sensor were the first with hi-res mode.

    We don't need no stinkin pixel shifting gringo.

  • Commented on Sony SLT-A77 II Review preview

    Why do so many people feel slighted if dpreview doesn't come up with an answer they like. Do you need to vindication you made the right decision? Best reviews about actual performance come from...

  • After 50mm, 85mm is simplest to design and both are quite similar in design.

  • Why do you think Canon or anyone has to make cameras to suit everyone's taste. If you don't want a 50MP camera don't buy one. You have a ton of choice. I know a lot of landscape and fashion guys...

  • You are kidding, one of the least informative interviews I've wasted time on reading. Borderline farce.

  • What a lame interview from Nikon. They might have as well pleaded the fifth and refused to answer any questions. Learned nothing at all from them, other than they should become politicians. Compare...

  • Commented on Sony Alpha a7 II Review preview

    "Our lab tests confirm that the Sony a7 II does between 1 and 2-stops poorer than the Nikon D750"

    Totally ridiculous Nikon can blow Sony away for noise from basically an identical sensor, and has...

  • Commented on Olympus OM-D E-M5 II Review preview

    How does it stand out? I have the E-M5 and don't think it stands out. Sure this is overall better in most areas, but I see nothing ground breaking.

  • Commented on Olympus OM-D E-M5 II Review preview

    Clear lack of reading and comprehension skills shown by many on this forum. Where did I say anything about resolution, there's a lot more to a sensor than pixel count. 16MP if fine for such a small...

  • Commented on Olympus OM-D E-M5 II Review preview

    Why not down sample the 64MP RAWs to 40MP rather than post them at 64MP?

    While I can many improvements over the original E-M5, IQ has barely budged and this is my main bugbear with the m4/3...

  • They are not implying that at all.

  • Clearly they just mean the glass not including the polarization foils. You want the highest transmittance glass as your starting point.

  • Why wait, Oly has had the superb 45 f/1.8 for year now.

  • Nice enough video but we have zero proof of the tracking ability. What is the keeper rate, where are the 100% crops of the full size RAWs? Show me those and I would be far more impressed if it...

  • The fan boys will never tell you about Sony's rank amateur and frankly pathetic customer service. Cameras to Sony are still just another electronic device like a toaster.

    I'll take a clunky mirror...

  • I'd wait and see how the IQ compares of the two sensors. If the new 24MP sensor offers some tangible improvements in DR, read noise, colour accuracy then it'd be my pick.

  • Ha Ha, you want to put a 150-450 on a FF mirrorless. You dreamin'. Mirrorless is useless with big glass. I'd rather have a DSLR any day for sports and action with big glass. Mirrorless is fine for...

  • Yes I meant is it Sony tech sesnor? I find it hard to beleive they couldn't have used this esnor on 7D II and includied DPAF it is there own sensor.

  • And I beleive Canon have improve low ISO read noise. This should be able to push shadows fairly well. It might not be as good as a Sony sensopr, but I think for there target audience thjey have...
