Better no laws than totalitarian ones.

They came to power after a catastrophic streak of leftists.

When it's about idiotic laws, I almost always hear about USA, UK or EU. Russia is mostly apart from the gay laws quite free.

oluv: wow 349$ = 399€ for the 14-42! shouldn't it be the other way round?

Just don't buy it. Olympus always overprices their products and later firesales them for nothing. A bunch of morons setting prices in olympus if you ask me. And all japanese companies sell in europe their products for more. And it's not taxes. It's just to offset the subsidizing the american customer.

Hans Bolte: Wonderful photographs by a true artist! I think most of the critics posting here have probably not taken one photo nearly as good as any of hers.

These photos are top notch. I have to figure how to get the same dreamy look.

The slt-a58 is recomended for high iso? All slt cameras are inferior in this compartment for losing a third of light. No matter how good the sensor behind is, it has to work with less light.

On Entry-Level Mirrorless Camera Roundup 2013 article (82 comments in total)

You can get an Olympus e-pl3 with kit lens for 249€ in Europe. A current model the E-PM2 with kit lens for 420€. A fuji x-m1 the most cheap you can get with a kit lens is 799€. I don't see how these cameras are comparable. The fuji just doesn't belong into this group. For that money you can get a canon 60d and a nikon d7000. Cameras certainly not belonging to entry class.

Nostalgic Nikon folks have dreamt about such a camera ever since the digital age. Now that nikon listened to them these spoiled brats have nothing better to do than moan and whine. I don't get these people.

Marty4650: I think Adobe is willing to lose a lot of customers, in order to make a WHOLE LOT more money from their remaining customers.

They simply can't be stupid enough to switch to a a subscription service without running the numbers first. They KNOW they will end up with fewer customers, but they will end up making a whole lot more money by renting software, rather than by selling it.

Sure.... for the high end users, it will make little difference. Because they bought every upgrade, and it works out about the same as paying subscription fees. But I'd wager that MOST of Adobe's past customers would skip an upgrade or two, or three, or more. Because when you buy software, it still keeps working even if it lacks the new features.

With a subscription service EVERY customer must pay for every upgrade, whether they want it or not.

"Because you would be paying less if you bought the subscription for the next three versions worth? You don't like paying less?"

The thing is, he doesn't have to buy any more new versions and his copy will work for ever. Rent your software means that he can't use even old versions. With a bought copy, your software will work always. And it's not as if even CS2 is useless. There is hardly anything new in photoshop. That's why ADOBE tries this scam.

Is it now more clear to you?

The only way I see a subscription would work is if it's only for new features that become yours after a period of renting.

Per Inge Oestmoen: Why should we accept Software-as-a-Service?

If we accept to be tied to a software subscription in order to access and use our own data, soon both the operating system and applications will be entirely server-based and no longer installable locally. In such a scenario, the user will lose all use of the software as soon as the software company's subscription service is inaccesible or discontinues - or if the licensee failsl to pay for forever reason. In other words, in the subscription model the user is forever completely dependent on the software subscription in order to access his or her own data.

We have to demand from all software companies that they create software with perpetual licenses that can legally be used for an unlimited time on compatible hardware. We also have to demand that the software comes in the form of full and unrestricted installation versions that can be backed up and installed at any time and independent from its manufacturer.

Per Inge Oestmoen, Norway

OEM windows versions are similar to rent-a-software license. It can be installed only on a new PC and it dies with it.

Luckily, looks like EU courts don't enforce such practices, because every copy no matter if it's oem, dsp or retail is assumed to be the property of the buyer and can be used as he likes. Ofcourse fair use. This means, in EU oem windows versions are sold as retail versions.

To me, the new Sony sensors seem to have a more blotchy noise. And stronger chroma noise. It seems that Nikon and even Canon control noise better. It's noise is finer and has less chroma artifacts.

Really nice camera. I wonder if it could get smaller in the size department with a pancake zoom or maybe with a fixed lens.

OBI656: From what I see, Canon is fooling around with us. Their latest "innovation" white painted camera is at least a joke !

This A7r with three-four Zeiss glasses will be my choice for years to come.

Quad pixel would mean there are four pixels under one microlens. Each in it's corner. This way the pixel could achieve the same AF sensitivity as a cross type AF point in your dslr. All theory but it's a logical step from a dual pixel. Not only cross type. Even double cross type. I'm pretty sure Canon already plays with this tech in their laboratories.

zigi_S: Winner of low light noise is Canon. Second Sony DSCR1X1. Seems as DXO is a balloon of hot air. How can anyone prefer the blue tint over solid blacks. And where is Canon 6d? It ought to be even a little better.

You are saying dpreviews comparison tool is defective? Or it's only your software that is correcting this tinge under the hood.

Because the first eos m was a copy of what other companies sell. Eos m2 will incorporate dual pixel pdaf. This is the reason it will leap forward. Small but not slow. And you can use all eos lenses without compromise. The problem with m43 is, that is expensive for what it is! Nex is already dead. Nikon 1 is a joke. I'm sure this sony full frame will have some success. But I don't see a camera body for almost 2000$ sell that well. Let's not forget the economic depression we are in. Only cameras that will do good in it are the "cheap" with the most bang. Which is canon eos m. Sell the bodies for less than 500$ with a nice kit lens and affordable after market equipment. Canon knows this game very well.

EOS M2 will bulldoze the mirrorless market.

They innovated with dual pixel more effective than all other "innovators". Dual and probably quad pixel is tech that will make mirrorless viable. Till now, even sony's on sensor pdaf solution didn't do that.

I compared all images in the dpreviews comparing tool in RAW at ISOs 6400 and greater, low light. This new sony and the nikon, both have blue tinge in all over the image. Best blacks have CANON and SONY DSCR1.

In reply to:

jpr2: I really do MISS two things in the new DPR's comparometer:

- nowhere in the scene there is an object of a relatively large, uniform surface, like it was a flat blue face of the watch, and yet with some very firmly outlined and crisp ciphers of the OLD comparometer - the bottle at the bottom can't replace that blue watch entirely, alas; the new scene is just a wee bit too busy with lots of pretty "talkative" object;

- and the ability to compare OLDER cameras with the new ones (this would be easier to rectify, but are there any such plans?);

I like the low light scene. It gives those dx0 champions a run for its money.
