  • Nor do they care about you telling people they don't care about you telling people they don't care.

    Maybe you need to adjust your reality distortion field and check the DSLR sales vs mirrorless...

  • So you want slow kit lenses that dominate other manufacturers lin-ups. IMO if you buy into a system like the Fuji, it's not as a backup for a FF DSLR it's as a long term replacement. Fuji is...

  • That's nice, but they could care even less about you leaving as do the rest of us.

  • Commented on Nikon D810 Preview preview

    The A7R sensor must be different as the D810 sensor has native ISO 64 and larger well capacity, it might only be a small difference, but they could not have done that on the A7R sensor. Also DxO...

    Sorry Daviddgf that you are flipping burgers for a career, but no need to take it out on others. I'm sure you'd love to do research, if you knew what it meant.

  • Commented on Nikon D810 Preview preview

    Only D800 owners with more money than sense would rush out to upgrade. If you seriously think the small differences will improve your photography you need a new hobby.

  • Commented on Nikon D810 Preview preview

    The only improvement I can see (and I'm talking only RAW) is that at high ISO the D810 has less chroma noise, otherwise they are so close as to not matter, at any ISO. Clearly Sony won't be getting...

  • The point which was obvious has nothing to do with the price of the cameras. It's just showing that these all-in-one superzoom lenses still are a long way behind even entry level lenses on IL...

  • The FZ1000 lens is soft on the LHS of the test scene and the RX10 on the RHS of the test scene making comparisons hard except in the very middle. Both lenses are mediocre in image quality. Compare...

  • Brilliant if you only shoot in good light. Wouldn't be using this past ISO 400/800. Shadow noise even at base ISO!

  • Wow 200kp EVF, same as my 11 year olf Fuji S7000. Good work Pentax. Same for the massive 240 shot battery. I mean what's using the juice with so few pixels on the EVF and even LCD is trailing edge...

  • Ain't competition grand. Alas the Canikon duopoly have no qualms charging extortionate prices, especially on lenses. We've seen the Yen plummet in the last 18 months and yet prices are still...

  • "The first thing you'll notice here is that a) the Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 is noticeably sharper"

    Yes, the Sony jpg engine is a bit better and uses more sharpening, but there's no extra detail. The...

  • An aperture like app, is that like a Ferrari like car that turns out to be a Corolla. The replacement will be a pieced of dumbed down cr@p catering to the selfie loving iPhone hipsters.

  • Commented on Nikon D810 Preview preview

    You certainly wouldn't upgrade D800 to this, but if you are coming from D700, D600 very nice upgrade and speed increase makes it more viable for action work and closer to the all-rounder nature of...

  • Commented on Nikon D810 Preview preview

    Why are mirrorless users so insecure about themselves they always have to put the DSLR down. I have both systems and hands down I still prefer using my 1D X to my OM-D, even though I love the Oly....

  • Commented on Nikon D810 Preview preview

    The extra speed and FA improvements make it a lot more viable as an action camera. 6fps in 1.2x mode and still yielding 25MP which is more than 5D III's 22MP, is quite nice. And even 5fps is...

  • So the LCD screen is NOT higher resolution, but now features a set of white pixels for improved brightness. Still only 640 x 480 x 4 rather than 640 x 480 x 3.

    Have they fixed the woeful LV...

  • My 100-400L is sharp wide open @ all FL, yes even 400mm. It's only a tad behind my 400 f/5.6L wide open. 100-400L is still optically great lens, but let down by ancient IS, slowish AF especially...
