On Nikon offers AF-S DX Nikkor 16-80mm F2.8-4E ED VR article (315 comments in total)
In reply to:

iudex: This is exactly the lens the Pentax 16-85 mm should have been. Almost the same range, but much faster. The price is extremely high, however.

I don't hang around too much in the rain either. Dust is my main concern.

Well I am the other way around. We must shoot at different times and in different environments.

A stop and a bit faster than the Pentax, but not weather sealed. And about $400 more expensive? Hmmmm ...

shutterbobby: Very impressive-good as the bar is raised for APS C cameras
& how about a Pentax K3 review??

The lack of a K-3 review was a running joke here for several months, but DPR did eventually get around to doing it.

Believe me, I've been shooting Pentax most of that 15 years too.
But now, it has moved out of the realm of rumor ...

You obviously have not seen the recent news about the forthcoming Pentax FF camera!

On Samsung NX1 First Impressions Review preview (1444 comments in total)
In reply to:

Daniel Lauring: Samsung has always had sensors a generation behind the competition with pretty ugly high ISO noise and pretty terrible jpeg processing. The samples I've seen from this camera don't look like they've caught up. Too bad, because the specs of this camera are fantastic. Wish Samsung would just use Sony's sensor.

Do you have a link to the samples you have seen?

halfwaythere: Ricoh is slowly driving the Pentax brand off a cliff. I think most of the pentaxians are going to miss the Hoya days.

Nah, Hoya were driving that car rather faster ... ;-)

I bought one but my copy was frustratingly soft. Returned.

Retzius: Does this fix the flopping mirror?

Sadly, no. I had an episode a few days after updating to 1.10 (having never had the problem before). Had to remove the battery to get it to cease.

sfa1966: "Right now you can opt out of receiving notifications on a per-thread (or per comment) basis"

How?

OK I just didn't see how that discriminated between 'per comment' notifications (which I would like to receive) and 'per thread' notifications (which I would not).

Will try it out.

On Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II Review preview (693 comments in total)
In reply to:

Betico: I'm happy to read the Jeff's reviews. He writes clear and to the point. I miss his comments about the battery door on his DPreview reviews. On his former website he never missed a comment regarding the bottom of the camera. His comments about the battery doors were very helpful. I guess DPreview does not allow him to write these comments now.

I did read the K-3 review, but was sorely disappointed. I thought after all that time you could have covered the battery door in a lot more detail.

Fabulous shots. Could cycle through the set for hours. A great find, and well done on how you've digitized the slides. They look superb.

Or do they not fall into this category?

On Pentax Q7 added to our studio comparison database article (118 comments in total)
In reply to:

sfa1966: Ouch. I am a loyal Pentaxian, but I have to say that is very poor. The left side of the image looks like mush. The centre is unimpressive. Soft, soft, soft. And in the comments below, Richard Butler tells us that the much-heralded-by-the-fanboys 01 Prime was tested and it came out "considerably worse"!

C'mon Ricoh, kill this Quirky Quackers waste of your resources!

I'll ignore the personal stuff, but oh yes: when it's the Q7, DPR should indeed take the time to conduct a thorough Sherlockian investigation of different combinations of other Q equipment. They are sure to come to a different conclusion. Perhaps that's because there's so many variables (highly variable variables, if this test shot is anything to go by) which might go wrong in a line which has self-professed 'toy lenses'.

Meanwhile - gosh! - all the other brands' cameras in the comparisons look fine! DPR must have gotten a lucky good copy of those then!
