D1N0: Sony should bring out a compact 18mm super wide, which kan make optimal use of the short flange (but it is probably difficult due to angular vignetting) A FF mirrorless should problay have a somewhat wider flange distance, like 35mm.

You have yet to falsify anything I have said mister. The advantage of mirror less is less when you have to make bigger lenses or when wide-angle becomes more difficult because the lens is so close to the sensor. A longer flange might be a good trade off especially when you are going to put an extruding grip on it anyway. Unlike with dslrs you also have the option to extend the lens into the body because of no mirror. Thus it gives you more flexibility in lens design. Also i have not used the word disadvantage. You are attacking my points with value judgements and not facts.

Sigh.. where is the advantage gone when your lenses are sitting on tubes. You might as well have stayed with slr. But you want to be right so keep op saying silly stuf please.

Yes it does. The angle at which the light hits the sensor is directly dependent on how close the back element is to the sensor and the angle of the lens.

The advantage is you increase the angle to the sensor, eliminating angular vignettiing. There are plenty retrofocus designs and since there is no mirror you can also move the back element inside. Also your standard primes (35mm 50mm) will become more compact.

On Nikon D7200 First Impressions Review preview (828 comments in total)

Nikon isn't going anywhere in aps-c. A small iteration, ironing out some of the cripplers from the D7100. They should choose. Is this a top range consumer dslr? Then put on an articulated screen. Is it a pro-level aps-c? Then make it a workhorse with 10fps and a killer shutterlife, leave out the scene mode crap and focus on build quality and operation and handling.

Raist3d: So sad to see Russia doing this. I hope the rest of the world can serve as a living example of why this is ridiculous.

Homosexuality is not just about pounding other men in the pooper LTZ470. A lot of gays don't even do that and who knows what lesbians do? It is just sex, but homosexuality is not about sex alone, it is about love too and mainly. Just because you can't imagine doing it, doesn't matter others can't and shouldn't. Homosexuality is no more taught than walking. It is an essential part of people. We don't know why people are gay, but we do know they are. To deny them their identity on the basis of anciënt beliefs you most probably are not even interpreting right is just plain stupid. You should ask yourself whether or not you are surpressing your own homosexual feelings, which maybe your reason for lashing out. http://www.scientificamerican.com/article/homophobes-might-be-hidden-homosexuals/

http://www.freedomtomarry.org/states/ In a lot of states it is legal. In none of Russia it is legal. But the issue is not same sex marriage it's a law against homosexual propaganda, which is effectively limiting the freedom of expression of gays and thus limiting their human right to defend themselves verbally against attacks.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Russian_LGBT_propaganda_law

It's an intolerant law. Their is no such law in the US. So your finger pointing is uncalled for and only serves to distract from the situation in Russia. We are not talking about the US, we are talking about Russia.

Man designed homophobia. not homosexuality. You people are destroying lives with your ignorance. Enlightenment is to be tolerant of others who are not harming you in any way. Society is not hurt by homosexuality, it is hurt by repression. Sex with children is different because their can be no real mutual consent, so it is harmful. Sex with animals? That's just a weird hobby. Animals will mount anything when in heat. No reason why humans wouldn't. When it doesn't harm the animal it is no big deal, but still kind of sad.'

The same nature that designed poo holes, also designed homosexuality. Who then are you to say one is right en the other is wrong?

Read my comment again and try to comprehend it.
Also I have never been for Putin. I know where he came from and I now what he has done to stay in power. Putin is just another Czar. Just like all the communist leaders were. There is a reason why a president can only do 2 terms in the USA. Russia is a fine example of that reason. I am not saying the us political system is perfect, but again, this is not about the US, it is about Russia. Be glad the west cares enough about Russia to worry about gay rights.

I don't believe most russians care about people being gay, but the government has used laws to limit gays to express their nature. This makes them vulnurable for bullying and unprotected from it. These laws have nothing to do with secular beliefs of Putins government, they are there for political reasons. The Russian orthodox church is a power in Russia and Putin wants this power behind him. Also gay rights is a liberal thing. Liberal=incompatible with russian politics. Liberal politicians are villified and prosecuted by the governent.

In reply to:

spidermoon: Like the K-S1, the DOF switch is replace by the video switch, and there is no dedicated button for dof check. Maybe nowdays it's an outdated feature since you can review your picture after taking it.

It's on the K-3. Focus peaking is not aimed at lower end. It just wasn't in the Prime II used in the K-5 (II(s)), It first appeared in the prime-m in the k-01.
