What is the size of the envelope? Micro four thirds?
Someone said it on another forum, how true: "I think that was an unfair review that got too hung up on details and missed the bigger picture about what a massive breakthrough this camera is. And I dont even like the camera."
I feel the review is good but over-critical on small issues.Jpegs?? For a RX100, it could be a valid point. But for a FF camera? If you think Jpegs are so important then as well give it extra points for having all the dumb modes (scenes/hdr/auto/auto plus) :)
You should also put things in perspective. Exceptional image quality from EM1 is not half as good as very good image quality from A7. Dont we know that?
This review reminds me of good old dpr, when reviews used to be critical enough. Wish it was true across the brands.
pricklypear: I knew it. 78, Gold but 78 Silver for another Sony.
Dpreview has started airbrushing the edges that a product has and its getting harder to distinguish between various cameras of similar class. What about saying, the ISOs are better, worse or similar to D7000 or the latest rebel...the new comparison tools expect the reader to be a reviewer and everyone is confused at the end of the day, trying to figure out which coin looks cleaner. Let the reviews have a clear POV and a judgment. If the reader can't decide what's better for her, even after going through the entire review, what's the point?
