The biggest advantage of mirrorless IMO is elimination of the mirror which is a major source of vibration. Short flangeback distance is nice but not essential to me. Making it too small actually renders it more difficult to hold.

On article Design, looks and desire: Olympus does it again (396 comments in total)

I don't find it to be attractive at all. I actually find it to cumbersome and pretentious. I don't want a camera to attract attention - whether they are good or bad.

webber15: DPR...stop with the equivalence b.s....I'm pretty sure ya never used to do this 4-5 years ago,,comparing everything to full frame...I simply couldn't care less...


Equivalence is not new to many of us but I believe it is important to state that. It is a common platform for comparison. It is a standard reference by which lenses across formats can be compared. I am familiar with APS and m43 but not much on 1" or 645. Not wanting to have it is a little snobbish imo.

I am probably in the minority here. The pictures are unique but not very appealing to me. #5 & #9 are pattern but neither attractive nor interesting.

rtogog: Samyang should offer fl 200 mm 2.8 macro lens. Not this lens, otherwise this lenses performs better than similar lens on the market today.

I'd seriously consider a 200 mm macro, but not this 100 mm.

What makes it stand out among other great 100-ish macro lenses already on the market?

On article CP+ 2015: Hands-on with new Pentax K-S2 (171 comments in total)

I was intrigued by K-S1 but did pull trigger because no WR. K-S2 is exactly what I am looking for. This will replace my K-01. Time will tell if it can replace my K-5 IIs.

Essentially mimicking the lens in our eyes. Instead of moving lens elements to focus, the focal length of an element changes. Implementation represents a significant challenge.

If it had WR, I'd buy it in a heart beat as replacement for K-5 IIs and K-01.

I prefer to see a 16-32.

I almost click the "Buy" button for a K-5IIs but held off the upgrade from a K-5. Glad I did. I have little reservation not only from the specs but from experience. All of the dslrs from Ds to K-5II have been class leading. The price is even a few hundreds lower than the price I paid for my K-5 3 years ago.

The images and video clips are mediocre at best ... a real disappointment. Showing them did not help promoting the new camera bodies at all.

On article Pentax announces K-01 K-mount APS-C mirrorless camera (874 comments in total)

This is an interesting camera, especially because I really love my K5. It may replace my Kx as the backup body or even become the main body if it has a nice soft shutter. The driving force for me is removal of the mirror box. This camera will stop me from even thinking about the Sony NEX series.
