The Silver Nemesis: B-R-A-V-O!

P. S.: on a completely different note, I hope as well that Philips will get back in the game with 21:9 TVs!

It's branded Philips, but not done by them :) it's tv division is done and manage by a Chinese company :)

Iamnotarobot: Sorry to be blunt, but why would anyone buy a strap that is sold under a name of a person who takes mostly mediocre pictures.
If it was someone from Magnum Photos... then it would be a different story...

I wouldnt buy his strap considering so many options in the market, but i dont consider his pictures mediocre, he actually shoots much better than many so call street photographers i seen posting all around the web, https://www.flickr.com/photos/ekizz/with/21790409488/

Thorgrem: It's a shame it's so expansive. I think it looks like a great camera to use. Although the next one needs a EVF.

Robert - I have an M and a A7ii, the T feels like a phone, no comparison to the A7. The A7 might not be the best experience as a camera, but its miles ahead of the T, put a nice lens in front of the a7 like a loxia, and the A7 become a really solid piece of equipment. The T might be compared to that samsung camera with android.

Yes the T looks nice as an engineering gadget, but as a camera, is a horrible piece of hi tech...

Great camera to use? It's like shooting an iPhone. I tested one in the Leica store, and it was like shooting a smart phone. Not what I will call a nice experience.

Valiant Thor: All this talk regarding high cost and arm and a leg chatter seems quite bizarre to me. The average American will pay around one million dollars in interest (mortgage, credit card, car loans, etc.) in their lifetime to criminal bankers (banksters), yet whine about paying $350 to a great company for a beautifully designed and manufactured piece of equipment. Now that's weird.

My Polish immigrant family taught me to work and save my money and pay for everything I purchase and pay no interest which I have done my whole life, so $300 to $400 for a nice tripod is a piece of cake and I get to keep my arms and legs. Just my rant on usury.

Viva la revolution!

Alex Sarbu: DPReview, please remove those pictures; your gallery software is making them look much softer than they were on pentax.com.
This article became a Pentax-bashing fest because of it.

Hope the day I manage to sell a product of my own creation, I have such loyal followers... I dont understand why are you so eager to prove that dpreviews samples are bad. You work for Pentax? (I honestly think not even an employee will do that)...I dont really give a cra.. if they speak bad about the brands i use ,for sure i spent a lot of money on them, and actually havent received anything free from them.

On article Pride and joy: shooting the Olympus PEN-F in Austin (285 comments in total)

I really dont understand m43. I used to have an em5, and yes it was small, with really nice lenses, but image quality let a lot to desire. Files deteriorate fast if pushed in PS, and high iso was far worst then apsc. If you wanted thin DOF you needed a huge voigltander, which I had for some time as well, which make the camera very uncomfortable and unbalance to carry around. I had during the same time a X100, (first version) and smoke the em5 in image quality.

This PEN even thou very nice looking, its extremely pricey, who will be wanting to pay so much for so so image quality? Its about the experience but these are over 1.2 K euros....

I got call a Troll in Steve forum for posting something similar, and then he actually moderated my reply and didn't allow it on his website.... A bit discouraging since i used to be a follower of his blog.

PieterB: I just wonder how many Leicas are being sold. Probably enough to let the company survive. But I don't think I have ever seen a Leica being shot by someone in the real world.

I shoot Leica in real world. Most of the pictures, I will say more than 85% were shot with a Leica, in the following two links.

ravikiran532: Can't believe so many negative comments for such a amazing camera...looks like most are mirrorless fanatics....

To me this is camera of the year for APSC or any other sensor

I am a mirrorles user, but that's because I am no pro, if my monthly earnings depended on photography, will not even think of using mirrorles unless I was shooting in a controlled environment, (studio work).

FodgeandDurn: I suspect some guy in a senior position at Sony is absolutely insisting that touch-screen isn't part of their philosophy, but how long will they ignore implementing such a cheap piece of hardware which so many people (including respected reviewers) want?

To those who (sometimes rather aggressively) don't care: screen digitizers are cheap as chips, the Sony interface has already worked with touch in APS-C models, and you can turn the feature off incredibly easily if you wish. I'm sure implementing touch-to-focus is a laborious design process, but I'm also pretty sure that isn't the dominating factor in the decision to omit it.

Bloody annoying when you have to go into the menu system to enable manual focus because your camera just will not pick the intended focus point.

Yep thats what I did :) and in my case its not an issue, I shoot for fun.

You make my point :)... I also had the em5 and actually disable it. Maybe for shooting landscapes I could find a use for it.

Don Sata: I'm sure this is a very nice piece of gear but 42 mp is excessive for a camera intended for handheld snap shooting. Also noise performance is not bad but not too good either, the noise on the bridge ISO400 shot is actually bad.

I believe the A7S sensor would have been a superior choice for this camera but Sony is all about specs.

But hand held snap shooting is not an issue, unless you don't manage your technique correctly. I never used a tripod with the D800, (was not shooting landscapes) and never had any issue with blur, unless i was shooting at to slow speeds, < 1 / 80 with a 35mm lens. I could make it below that but been very very careful, so its as with any other FX camera.

I actually don't know any photographer who will like this feature on its camera. Actually most of them will find it an unnecessary feature, that could bring more points of failure to the camera.

I will really not want this, I for sure won't like this.

I had a d800, only a small difference in mp, and actually had no issues shooting hand held, yes you need to be more careful, but it can be done an easily.

I had the previous version and for sure was not rich. It's a matter of perspectives, some eat three meals a day others eat 4 and some don't even eat.

dwill23: Wildly over priced. Even if it's the best 35mm focal length camera with best 35mm sensor...not being able to change lenses sucks.

I had my Canon EOS M with 22mm prime lens in San Francisco which gives you a 35.2mm crop, and I used my Panasonic 20x zoom for 800 of the 1100 pics taken.

Way better image quality out of the canon, but so much more I could do with the zoom.

I'd buy this camera for $800, max.

Than this camera is not for you. Yes it's expensive, are you or me going to buy it probably not. Is it going to sell, for sure :)

mpgxsvcd: They will probably sell 10s of these cameras.

Actually not, quite sure they will sell quite a few. Actually if I had the opportunity to choose between this one and the m I have, I will had chosen this one. ( I am not a dentist :)).
