urix: Thank you, DPReview!
Low Light, ISO 100 CR2, converted to DNG, pushed up by 5 EV, resized to 3300 x 2200 (about 7 MP):
go left to get 700D crop, go right for D5500 one
Well, actually I wanted to show difference among 700D, 760D, and D5500:
Thank you, DPReview!
WGVanDyck: An interesting article, however, there is a fallacy within “Fallacy 2”. The manufacturers introduced a false premise that the APS-C lenses would do the same things as the FF lenses they try to emulate (35DX=50FX). The reality is; you are going to get the native characteristics of a lens’ focal length regardless of the sensor you put it on. As an example: a 35mm DX lens is going to give you 35mm lens distortion and DOF characteristics when mounted on an APS-C sensor. Other than angle of view, it (or any 35mm) is not equivalent to a 50mm lens. But, with the DX 35mm, you have all of the light falloff, distortion, and filter vignetting issues that would be reduced or nonexistent if a 35mm FF lens were used. The only APS-C lenses that make any sense are the wide to ultra-wide focal lengths. I love my Nikkor 12-24mm DX, but otherwise I find FF lenses don’t have the DX lenses' edge problems. So, there is a good reason to buy FF lenses, even when one doesn’t plan “upgrading” to a FF camera.
And vice versa. If you like a 35mm FF on your APS-C body, you'll be unpleasantly surprised by its distortion and light falloff with your new FF body :)
urix: What did you mean with "3EV at the center" of low-lit scene? Is it correct to assume that the center illumination is 20 lx? Thanks.
@yabokkieReally? Illumination of 25-30 lux can be learned from EXIF data.

TWIZEEL: I know the way - OVERPRICED product never sells. Even 600 bucks for conveyor style of production for lens still expencive. 20 years ago hand-adjusted on optical bench Carl Zeiss was cheaper.
But 20 years ago the Buck has been much more valuable ;)
Mike Cialowicz: Odd... they claim it has front and rear control dials, but all I see is a rear dial. Is the front dial the toothed thing surrounding the shutter button? Is that awkward to use?
Mike, did you count the dial around a shutter release button?
Yes, sir. A Digicam like Sony RX100-II is more capable than Lumia 1020, giving a better sensor, a tilting screen, etc. But it is dedicated photo tool which price tag is similar to the one of the multi-purpose Lumia. Except that, we are unlikely to find a dozen of P&S digicams, justifying easily the fuss with a separate photo gadget.
DSLRs are in a diferent league. But not all ILCs of course. Personally, I had a chance to play with RX100 and NEX-6 side by side at a local store yesterday. It's all about an optics, but I find the RX100 to focus quicker and more reliably at any of its focal lengths than the NEX with conventional kit lenses. Not to mention size difference.
When I try to download original movie samples I get a message that an access denied. How can I get them?
Well... Where did you see an LX7 for $300 and a D-Lux 6 for $500?
kewlguy: Why is the 24-70/4 IS much more expensive than 24-105/4 IS? The new zoom better be as good as the best primes! But then it's still f/4...
Because 24-70/2.8 II is much more expensive than 24-70/2.8:-)
These RRPs would be ok only if Canon is going to follow the Sigma's way. Compare Sigma 24-70 prices: $1400 MSRP and the street prices being less than $900.

J1000: I'm not a fan of the colors I'm seeing.
NOKIA PureView fan detected.
kevin_r: I second GRAFLI: Why on earth didn't they put Windows 7.8 or even Windows 8 or Android on this phone? Whatever the stupid reason - probably political infighting in the company - I hope they put the same camera or better into the Lumina 950/1000 with dual core processor and Windows 8.
PureView has a special purpose chip processing all photo/video from the camera. They have written lots of code on C/C++ to support it. Windows Phone 7 requires applications to be written in C#. Why bother to rewrite this software if Windows Phone 8 supports native applications? I guess they'll port it to WP8 and we will see Lumia PureView before the end of the year (next year?). Just some thoughts :)
doctorxring: This thing sure looks a lot like my Sony SAL 18-250. Has an HSM motor though.
You're wrong. Tamron and Sony 18-250 ultrazooms both have maximum aperture of f/6.3 at the long end.
P.S. How can I add a link to my post?
urix: Is there a way to distinguish a camera with the modified sensor from a camera with the original one? E.g. by serial No.?
To Louis_Dobson: Thanx, Cap :)I'd like to know it before I start shooting.

WOW! The photo at a poorly lightened bar shows a crazy exposure: -13.33 Lv, i.e. more than 1.5 hours of exposure @ iso100 and f/4! :-PPlease fix shutter speeds shown at the image subscripts. They are reciprocal (e.g. 25 sec instead of 1/25 and so on).
ogl: Why this 75/1.8 is so big?
Maybe for it is an MSC lens with onboard focusing motor?BTW I think this 75/1.8 will be about 60 mm x 70 mm (D x L).
