lera ion: Awarded posthumously!

Maybe he meant "prehumously."

Duh.

In reply to:

James Bligh: I cannot find a word about internal reflection and shutter shock issues of D750 in this review. Please point me to it if I missed it. When dpreview never even mentions (not to say evaluate) the issues, you can no longer say dpreview review is a comprehensive review which I think is a shame. Once renowned for its objective reviews and a comprehensive source of information about camera gears I am afraid dpreview has fallen into the realm of mediocrity many review sites share. The present generation of dpreview staffs may have wasted their talent and ruined the reputation of dpreview. Phil Askey will lament over it seeing the prestige he has built up tainted.

@ helltormentor
Argh, that flashing you're getting when shooting contre jour is awful. That is good reason to be annoyed.

Can you mitigate the effect with lens hoods?

davids8560: I would like to own this camera, and also some very nice lenses to go with it, too.

Yep, me too.

Wish it had more pixels, though.

TrollFree: is this going to be any good for landscapes and seascapes?

Fanboys? Hey, guy, I'm just passing the time of day. Angling for laughs, you know?

In reply to:

Tilted Plane: A pretty careful avoidance of Nikon (or Sony) comparisons, overall. Too bad. Head-to-head comparisons are really (!) helpful. Does this hold up next to a D750? Or even the D610? Or the similarly priced A7II? If so, when, where, under what shooting conditions?

How many enthusiasts care much for high frame rates? 10%? 40%? Does anyone have a feel for this?

Let's have the whole story about this banding business. I go in horror.

How about elephant stampedes? Will it be any good for elephant stampedes?

In reply to:

Sabatia: This is the camera I have been dreaming of since I started looking at m4/3s four years ago and even since I made the switch two plus years ago. Small and light with outstanding image quality. I'm a serious outdoors person, hiking, biking, xc skiing, winter mountaineering, etc. I'm also a serious(sold many framed prints and had hundreds of images published) nature photographer who just won't lug all the equipment any more. I tried the GM1, but too too often couldn't see the screen or the level line in the sun. I've also owned Canon S95 and Pana LX5 and LX7, but wasn't satisfied with the image quality. I've considered the LX100 and the RX100, but love the versatility of changing lenses, particularly since I already own a small pile of m4/3s lenses, including three primes and a macro.

Right on target.

This camera system fits my requirements like none other.

By the way, TechRadar and Imaging-Resource have reviews. They applaud the image quality.

Sammy,

The A6000 is not a DSLR.

But the price makes it intriguing!

:)

On Enthusiast mirrorless camera roundup (2014) article (300 comments in total)

What camera should I buy if I am to view images on a 72-in 4K flat panel, whilst enjoying enough surplus pixels to do some reasonable zooming? My burning desire is to reproduce the experience of a slide show (Kodachrome 64, Nikon F, FTn, F3, N2000, Nikkor lenses, Leica IIIg, Summitar 1.5, Leitz and Zeiss projectors).

I just can't have any more 13x19-in prints in my life.

DanK7: Sorry - I'm having a grammar moment. "If its manual control points you desire..." should be "If it's manual control points you desire...." Now back to solving world problems.

Ahh. Someone cares.

In reply to:

armandino: Ok went out and bought one today, I was pretty pleased with the IQ I saw online and I had a pretty good idea of what to expect from ergonomics and performance as I owned pretty much every single Canon DSLR worth having.
Just a quick comment: one thing I absolutely LOVE from Canon as a pro user is that there are never surprises. Every iteration is built on top of the previous one, conservatively and thoughtfully. See the next post for more:

A superb post. Thank you.

lakel4444: As a teen, can't decide between the 7d mark ii and the 70d.. help?

Weeeel, the 70D costs $999 clean, $1350 with the 18-135mm, and the 7D II is $1799 clean, $2149 with the same lens. You could decide on the basis of price.
