I know it's not year 2013, but the best fixed lens camera is Sigma DP2 no doubt. IQ is FAR!!! better than all other fixed lens cameras on the market. All Sigmas Merrill are superior.
Don't believe? Check this photo of Prague from merrill DP3.http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/1196562
jadot: Stick a 35mm equiv and an OVF and I'll dump my X100s.
I would never switch from X100s to this ricoh. Even if it has 35mm.
Finally. I was waiting for camera like this. Absolutely perfect for hiking. Time to switch for my heavy D200.
Corners are really bad. Center and around is perfect.
I would like to see how nikkor 18-105 is doing. Not included in tests. I think for that price range is perfect lens.
Sam Carriere: Amazing what some people will pay for a logo.
Really? So tell me which non zoom lens FF cost more or is even comparable in price?
Matt1645f4: Can we have a X-M1 v X-A1 comparison please so we can see how much of a difference that xtrans sensor makes.
I totally agree. This is be or not to be question.
Very nice. Well done.
skytripper: $10 a month is not alot of money, but Adobe CC is an extortion scheme at any price. No thanks.
And they just trying lure people to their system. Catch them and then rise the price. They will be caught already so leaving for them would be difficult.
Ha,ha,ha,ha,ha,ha,ha,ha. I predicted exactly same thing. Because their stupid concept didn't work. So is better to lower price, than say how stupid we were. :-)))
Michael Ma: Perfect timing! I just bought the GH3 yesterday. Trying to find workarounds for the moire... :/
@VisualFX. You are wrong. X-trans has also moire, BUT lesser. ONLY cameras absolutely moire free are Sigmas.
If I would general manager of nikon, first thing what I would do is reading forums and try to understand what people want. Then I would give an order to make that camera.Of course not such bull*** like FF in RX100 body and 35x optical zoom. But normal suggestion from normal people. But apparently the general manager doesn't read forums about photography. :-(
Justin Francis: With cameras like the Sony RX100, it is a miracle that Nikon sells any 1 series cameras. Nikon puts a small sensor in a big body with a high price and then forecast big sales?
Sigma is going right way. New superb lenses, very nice merrill cameras, these services and 4 years warranty. +1 Sigma.
sh10453: I certainly hope that opening this shop will not have a big negative impact on reviews, ratings, and judgment.DPR may say it won't, but I doubt that, especially on the long run.
As for you don't care what camera a person will buy, I say neither would Amazon care as long as the person buys a camera from them.
The same can be said about Adorama, B & H, or any other shop.All these sites do have reviews.What is going to make DPR different from these places? The more detailed review?In my humble opinion, I will have to consider all future reviews as tainted, and take them with a grain of salt.
Bad, bad, bad idea.Would have been better if DPR decided to sell college sports gear, for example, gold coins, swim-wear, or even canned vegetables. Anything unrelated to photography and the reviews.
Sad announcement, and a sad day.
I absolutely agree. Especially if there is a gold-silver mark beside camera. I have feeling that they are not "independent" any more and they will push gold marking signs for better sales.
Very bad designed web page. Impossible to read because description is in black font on brown background. Very poor designed. No contrast between background and used font. For many people with weak sight is unreadable. Example here.http://gearshop.dpreview.com/nikon-d7100-dslr-camera/dp/B00C0GLDZS?ref_=se_gd_1_0
Truly? I don't see any significant difference in Raw. I would say in some part of picture is RX1 even better on high ISO than RX1R. Is it worth upgrade? I don't think so.
mumintroll: Hmm. Camera RaW comparing doesn't work. I tried in two browsers. Nothing works.
Thank you. :-)
