Did Sony just do the impossible?

Nope, true the camera is small .. but the lenses (compared to the mft system) are huge (albeit Zeiss fantastic). However I just wonder how this camera will fair (sales wise) when the rumoured Olympus E-M1 replacement, with it's HAND-HELD 40mp sensor shift system is released. More importantly, just how many people out there can afford (or are willing) to pay for those Zeiss lenses .. I mean .. just how often does one blow up a print to the size of a barn door?!!

D Bowcut: My T6s sensor is fine. Camera purchased 04/26.

Hopefully not fine 'for now' - there's no way of telling that whatever is causing the problem will not develop later.

A very interesting product - but there are two potential problems with it. First it's too unwieldy to use out in the field - chasing bugs in the undergrowth etc. Second, the stiffness of the flexible arms will become reduced with use, and unlike the Gorillapod, where you can replace affected joints, I don't see how one can do the same with this product, because presumably there are control/power cables running through them. That said, I'm certainly going to look into this product further, as it could be useful in a studio environment - replacing my hot copystand lights.

On Nikon D750 flare investigated: Why we're not worried article (365 comments in total)

This camera costs well over £2000 in the UK - for that kind of money it should be perfect. Well it isn't .. so will dpreview reduce it's % rating? And if not, then why not?

On Nikon D750 Review preview (1953 comments in total)

This is a fantastic camera - well done Nikon! However, I can't help thinking that many potential purchasers of it are going to wait until after Olympus's EM-5 replacement, an allegedly 40MP wonder camera, is tested.

E-M5 mk II has "old" E-M5 sensor and therefore no PDAF.

JDThomas: Just curious as to why DPReview is posting re-hashed content from RUMORS sites? Seriously guys, you are supposed to be the paragon of photography websites and you using content from websites that are the equivalent of The National Enquirer.

In reality, it's no rumor - the camera DOES exist - leaking news of it now to 4/3 Rumours (as a "trusted source") is just a spoiling tactic by Olympus, to persuade people to refrain from buying a new camera until the New Year. (And I suspect that this will happen). Oh, and one other thing, posts from other contributors here reckon that the sensor shift technology will not work well with anything other than stationary objects - well I'm no expert, so cannot comment - but I suspect that Olympus will prove this to be incorrect.

Presumably, in return for the superb IBIS, Olympus will get a superb sensor for the E-M5 replacement from Sony....?

In reply to:

PedroMZ: Am impressed ,given its considerably smaller sensor, how well the Olympus OM-D compares to the others . Jpegs have obviously been sharpened more but in RAW details are still very competitive at least to ISO 1600 .

Darn it ..you must be a mind reader .. I was about to say the same... the OMD sensor performs incredibly well.

On Leica T (Typ 701) First Impressions Review preview (2251 comments in total)

Cool looking camera ...this is the iPhone/ipad (design wise) of the camera world and the body-only price is well worth the money. Unfortunately the lenses (seemingly) are no better than anyone else's ..and will cost at least 3- 5x as much...and then there's that ugly clip-on viewfinder ... unbelievably there isn't an aluminium-coloured version.

On Leica T (Typ 701) First Impressions Review preview (2251 comments in total)

Gorgeous camera (and not THAT pricey for a Leica) - unfortunately the sample images are nothing special as far as image quality is concerned. I'm amazed that Leica did not go for the 4/3 format/mount .... the market for their lenses would have been enormous ...because I suspect that most of we Olympus guys would have save up to buy at least one of their lenses!

Well this guy's work is nothing special .... if you can afford the gear, then you can produce similar results ..in other words, no talent is required. However, I do wonder whether the quality of a poster-sized print from my (16MP) Olympus E-M5 would look any worse than a similarly-sized image from this photographer's set-up.... probably not.
