ozturert: I think Canon will just add an EVF, and some other minor stuff to M4. M3 is OK, not bad not the best. I'm still happy with EOS-M. It's small, touch screen is excellent, the camera is very silent and lenses are very good.

It is indeed a nice touch screen interface.

Dareshooter: When it was announced that the M3 was not going to be released in the USA there was howls of derision. Now it has been announced that the M3 is being released in the USA... howls of derision.

Yes, they wanted it here in the US so they could criticize it. It's a internet type of logic I guess 😀

Just to close out, it's not that bad. Canon still is the money maker in the industry. I find the carping about Canon's sensors to be a bit overstated. Yes, they could have better dr, but their cameras as a whole (5Diii, 6D) are great image taking tools. Despite the DPR claims, I would take the focusing on the 5D iii any day.

Almost four year old 5D iii and two year 6D still very relevant at their price points. Their lenses will last and perform for a long time (L Glass).

Don't have kittens DP people, its my OPINION not my RELIGION.

T88, it will be interesting to see if Canon makes a lens which won't work with adapters on the Sony bodies. Otoh, they might not care as long as their products are selling?

Only Leica can make a medium format camera body look so lean. It must be a monster in reality. Hear that fashion photogs like this system (certainly not my calling).

Wowzers on the price, unless that $223.90 is for some super duper polarizing filter in 82mm. St

Frank_BR: Will this lens help Canon to reverse the steady decline in the sales of DSLR cameras?

Haven't checked one out....do they feature "Rubber Dials."

Canon chooses to make tools over toys.

D135ima: If this lens is not worse than Sigma - to me that's enough. I do not need any "magic" or super technologies. Only thing not worse than sigma, with good focusing, weather sealing and robust housing

MB for shooting in bad weather....you know outdoors!

Interesting tech with the BR element. Let's see how well it works!

AKH: I have been following Dpreview for around 15 years now and I don't like how it has changed over time. It is like the reviewers have become sort of fan-boys in their reviews. Just a few years ago the reviews were much more objective and balanced in my opinion.

Also I'd say that I never had any focusing issues with my D810 with fast primes down to f/1.4 and the new f/1.8 series from Nikon. Didn't even have to fine tune any of my lenses which was not the case with my previous camera the D800.

AKH, i bought a Nikon D600 because of DP's rave review. That didn't go so well for me dollar wise. Although my skills for mapping out hot pixels and touching up dust/oil spots increased considerably during ownership (sarcasm). When they used to hawk Pentax I made the same mistake on one of those DSLR's...what a joke. Not that either were necessarily bad products, they simply didn't live up to the hype IMO. Now I just trust my own assessment of a product and listen to other photogs I know. Also am a firm believer in renting before making a major purchase if it is a new product to me.

My assessment of DPR today is that "I get what I pay for" :-)

aftab: Rishi, you know well that you have drawn a broad conclusion based on one test using a specific lens and aperture. To draw such a conclusion you need to use variety of lenses, different bodies, different FLs and subjects etc. At the end you may be proven to be right though, but for now your conclusion applies only to this specific situation.

His question was like the one I asked earlier. It was not clear from your article if you were comparing the performance of the 7r2 with D750 using an equivelent lens or with a slower zoom on the D750.

Since your article was short on details, it is inderstandable that people have questions about how the test was conducted. Possibly you should go into more setail so users can duplicate your results.

Agree, it was a very limited test for such a conclusion.

Rishi, help me understand your article. Are you saying that with the A7rii and a f1.4 lens it focuses in low light as well as a D750 with comparable f1.4 lens? And did you imply that with a zoom like the constant f4 kit zooms the Sony A7rii is slower focusing than. D750 with the same kind of lens in low light?

On Rough and ready: Olympus Tough TG-4 review article (240 comments in total)
In reply to:

Tropical Light: I am loving this camera, especially for shooting underwater in the ocean. I always carry a camera on my long ocean swims, but this is the first one I can carry tucked in my swimsuit which shoots RAW.
Adobe's Camera RAW's default setting (CS6) has sharpening turned up high, which may be why the review's RAW images look so bad. Mine are hugely better. In fact some of my underwater shots rival what I've been getting from my Canon G1X, which is much bulkier.
I'm surprised there was no mention of the Microscope feature. This was the first camera I've had which could do these AMAZING macro shots. Did I mention it is AMAZING?
I have now taken many hundreds of photos underwater with this camera and cannot recommend it highly enough.

Glad you get good use out of it and thanks for sharing your experience!

In reply to:

Just Ed: The 200-500 sounds interesting considering the price. But the constant f5.6 could be a handicap at the wide end. Still, the price is reasonable.

You are indeed at least stuborn. The concern I voiced was that the lens was only 5.6 at all focal lengths. At The 200mm setting that is slow for such a large front element. It makes me wonder if they are trying to control poor performance near the wide end with such a smal max app.

My OP was not negative towards Tamron as such. It amazes me that you are so concerned about my observations. I don't understand your rambling on about my comment.

Francis Carver: USD $799, hmmmm? Wow, but isn't this the type of gadget that enraged neighbors are increasingly fond of shooting out of the sky with shotguns, and beat on them with baseball bats when hovering near street level?

FC, I wasn't aware that skeet shooting for drones was considered slaughter by the world court? So stick to your guns :-)
