Dear DPRAperture for Df 1/25? (that's the shutter speed)Aperture for D610=f5.6 while for 5d=f7.1? That's what I call bias...
"channeling his inner 19th century satirist"? Looks Dada to me....
Maybe they just mean they're gonna launch wherever it snows
Dimitris Servis: A beautiful camera with all the dials a photographer really needs. No video is a relief. MPs are ridiculously low. "Classic" cameras should synchronise at higher speeds. 1/250? 1/4000? The price tag is extremely high but expected from a marketing point of view. I would consider it over the D610 but not at this price...
This is an interesting bet for Nikon. If this is the first of a series (Fuji style) it makes more sense. If not and Fuji comes out with an FF at a lower price tag, hmmm
They used to make them go up to 1/500 right? I mean, a "classic" photographer's tool could score better than 1/250...

"...isn't correctly compensating for the initial low frequency, high amplitude motion of the initial shutter press..."
Sorry but technically this is only possible if you buy a tripod or don't forget to take your medication ;-P
Nice review overall, for an excellent camera. I have an E-PL5 and indeed its incredible advantage over APS-C and larger, that you can carry them in your bag or coat pocket, is slightly counterbalanced by the fact that these cameras are mode difficult to hold steady. The lack of a viewfinder is not a problem. They are just ultralight. I usually use speeds twice the focal length to compensate for that and often use the touch screen to shoot instead of the shutter button.
mpgxsvcd: I can't fathom anyone buying this camera for $699 when the much better Panasonic LX7 has sold for $275 brand new in the past and is at $328 right now.
I can't fathom in general... :-(
Stylish, fashion-forward consumer
TheSquid: I still have my A Cokin filters from my film days. While a few of the filters do not work with digital, there are many that do. I don't think you can polarize post process quickly and easily just as an example why it's relevant. Many times it's faster and easier to get it in camera than go back and work for hours to get it in post.
then maybe it is not photography but painting :-D You could recover some detail under the glare highlights, if there is any remaining, but never to the extent revealed by the polarizer.
You cannot achieve polarization with PP, whatever you do.
Cokin A and P series are really good solutions for polarizers and ND grads. As a side note, one of the most lovable things is the Franglish editing.
tabloid: As usual we have usual cretins with their sarcastic comments.
We need more censoring on these sites.
Unless a person has something constructive to say, his post should not see the light of day.
I would love to be moderator on these sites.
I think you miss an area with shadows that can show the resolution and dynamic range like the box of colorful fluff and threads.
Also, I really wonder, do you shoot at the same aperture? What distance? How do you make sure everything is in the dof.
Where's the 1000 drachma bill? Grexit has happened and you put it back in circulation?
Dimitris Servis: DPReview people, why don't you make some user profiles from cross-sections of comments on your site? There surely must be some metrics out there to do that.
Also, are women photographers as aggressive with their equipment as men?
How does aggressiveness correlate with lens sizes?
more or less what I expected... if there is a sizeable sample available to DPR the speculation about children and prices could go down the drain...

Why so much rant about KR? Everyone does his job the best way they can and make a living. You don't like him you don't read his stuff! I sometimes visit his page when I am bored to have some fun, he is so USish exotic to me! And I love the way he tries to exalt the most casual snapshot to a work of art.
I have to agree though, that quoting KR for anything else than blabber is kind of indicative of your understanding of the current field of photography...
Dimitris Servis: Apart from selling chunky equipment to amateurs, there is no other use for APS-C, but this is then the cash cow. Masses think bigger is better, so manufacturers obey. IMHO m43 is and will remain by far the best system in all respects. Having a considerable legacy of lenses, a FF Nikon sits on the other end. But if I started today, I would stick to m43. Aptina right above says sensor size is what matters and the trend is for larger. Until the new generation of sensors and the destructive gale of processors arrive and turn big sensors and lenses redundant...
Yes, you might be correct, maybe all the rumors are much harder to materialize. However, especially for Sony, considering the lack of useful NEX lenses and its investments in Olympus, I can more easily see it going the FF and mft way. Anyway this is all market speculation, most of these cameras are great anyway.
@Beat gee, you're a natural talent in debate, aren't you :-D
