Adobe's pricing is cunningly misleading: what if, after a future 'upgrade' of the cloud software, your hardware no longer has enough power to run it? Is Adobe going to upgrade our hardware too, for free? Of course not! At least, in the 'old' system, I had the choice not to upgrade and forfait to hardware costs.
Frank Moeller: A an non profit Photographer I only use light room and Photoshop Element, I'll Guess there is no changes for us amateurs.Am I right????
I have come to the same conclusion. I do feel that their pricing is way to high.
Ivan Lietaert: Yep, I like Photoshop a lot. It can do a lot more than exposure and contrast adjustment. Dpreview should take a closer look at it before writing such a deregatory comment.
I meant Photoshop Elements.
Btw, corporate rip off! Opensource servers will be very busy in the months to come!

igorek7: Panasonic G5 was already a serious upgrade for the G-series of cameras, GH3 became the true semi-/pro-hybrid camera, but the G6 offers a few new features that even the GH3 doesn't (yet) have:* Focus Peaking that shows the peak of focus in MF and AF+MF mode* EV -3 - 18 (ISO100 equivalent) AF Detective Range,* 1080p@60fps video in Extra Tele Conversion (ETC) mode (the GH3 tops out at 1080@30P in ETC),* 7 fps @16Mpix&AFSingle, 5 fps @16Mpix&AFTracking and 40fps burst mode (versus 6fps@AFS and 20fps in GH3),* 1,728-zone multi-pattern light metering system (versus 144-zone in GH3),* Stop Motion Video, Sweep Panorama* 1,036K dots TFT LCD screen (versus 614K dots OLED LCD in GH3)* Adjustable HDR mode. While the Panasonic G5/GH3 have an in-camera HDR mode, there is only an On or Off setting with no scope to tone down the effect.* NFC +better Wi-Fi: The G6 have wireless recording function with start/stop recording and 30fps video stream feed to tablet/smartphone.
I too am very impressed by these specs. The GH3 has a stronger body, but the G6, at this price, is a very powerful tool indeed. Love the video specs, by the way!
So glad dpreview is reminding us on a weekly basis that one can only make artistic photos with an iPhone! plug plug plug
I like this because it shows the reality of street life. What I like less:1) some subjects are missing their feet due to bad framing2) the reflection of the flash on walls and glassI consider these distractors; get rid of those faults and you get studio quality street photography indeed!
Ivan Lietaert: Compare this with the GH3.Panasonic listened carefully to the GH2 users, and then produced a revolutionary camera that is kicking ass as a video camera. The GJ3 easily is in the same league as the 5DMIII but costs only half as much.
As for the 700D, there is absolutely nothing in the image quality department that would even make me consider replacing my now rusty 550D.
Of course, you get a lot of camera for its money, but the 650D or the 600D is a wiser option.
I only now looked at its price... wow... what an insult to common sense!
I'm considering the video mode only. Put an adapter ring on the GH3, and you get access to Canon, Nikon, vintage lenses...
mpgxsvcd: It is like Canon is still gloating in the fact that the 5D MKII was such a huge success. They have decided that they will never make another camera that improves on the 5DMKII.
I 'd say the 5DMKIII is an improvement, but an expensive one...

Ivan Lietaert: I have the same feeling expressed by others: in this 'subtle', devient, fiendish way, this article suggests the iPhone is the only portable device that allows to take decent pictures - which is clearly untrue.
In your article all words with possitive connotation are about the iPhone, while all words with negative connotation (eg 'lacked'; 'high light clipping' etc) are in the paragraphs about smartphones.
Funny how you don't realise that in the long rung your biased apprauch undermines the credibility of the author AND of Connect and dpreview...
Hey, at least you're a real person, making an effort to reply.
@unbelievableBeing a language teacher myself, I'm kind of sensitive to usage of words. As a matter of fact, I ran your writing through a 'keyword density tool'. Here are the results (based on the analysis of page 1 and 2 of the article):iPhone: 97 timessmartphone: 16 timesAndroid: 8 timesThese are FACTS, not wishes are whatever. If I were a cynic, I could add that Connect is getting paid by Apple to produce these articles. But I'm not...

Ivan Lietaert: "a top notch fast 35mm autofocus prime without breaking the bank"Priced £900, the author obviously must be making a fortune writing for DPreview! This lens is priced at a working man's monthly income. I wouldn't call that cheap! Please think twice before you write this kind of thing!
Anyhow, I have noticed that dpreview has changed the article a bit, and re-worded it. I guess this proves my criticism was rigth.
Why doesn't dpreview mention the price in euro? Isn't continental Europe a big enough market?I have found a retailer selling this lens for € 949,00Where I live, in Belgium, I would use the expression 'without breaking the bank' for a selling price of, hm, let's say € 100. These lenses do exist, the 'nifty fifty' being one example.I have no problem with expensive glass. I understand that some people, especially pros, are prepared to invest in glass in that price range. My issue lies with the choice of words of the reviewer, who clearly has lost connection with the real world out there and normal standards of living.
doctorbza: You mention that the Canon & Nikon counterparts are weather sealed. The Canon 35mm f1.4 is not weather sealed.
Not all L glass is weather sealed.

Hardly pocketable and it comes in only one color... but besides that, this must be the best camera to hit the market!
This is a pro camera; Love it where he talks about the removable audio box. "Just release the four screws." They also show us the future of memory cards: 128gb SxS cards and 2x512GB 'something else' for raw recording.
As today it is Haloween, I'm sure this camera will bring the shivers to the competition!
KingDon: F55 video
something is horribly wrong with this video (stuttering playback and screaming sound); I don't think this video was aimed for the public.
edit: oops, now it works; Love it where he talks about the removable audio box. "Just release the four screws." They also show the future of memory cards: 128gb SxS cards.
Ivan Lietaert: It's not flickr, but the flickr users and their pictures that are awesome!The depth of some threads goes very deep.
Who is Sean Bonner anyhow?!
He's a blogger, really?So he's no photographer?Then who cares?
