redseer: mobile01 is a Chinese site and also a Taiwanese site, both is correct. Chinese is not equal to China. Just like English is not equal to England. E.g. most English speaker do not live in England or never have been in England.
We are CANADIANS and we are preparing to INVADE for the BRITISH EMPIRE.
Timmbits: It looks very nice!!!
I'll say that it's a pity it doesn't have an aps-c sensor, while the usual 4 people will saturate this thread as they did all others by complaining that it doesn't have a viewfinder although this company too makes a model with a VF. ;-p
Remember, SONY makes the sensor, and they are watching, .......always WATCHING!
BB has indicated that the OS from the 10 will be going into their Playbook tablet, eventually. Those of us who have a Playbook would like to know when.
MrTaikitso: Well, for all the moaning, Panasonic are doing a lot better than Sony who just released a silly lens flare app for the NEX (of which I have one in the form of a 5R) instead of focusing on faster lenses and removing the bugs from their WiFi firmware. If Panasonic shrank the GH3 (and the price), I would return to the GH series, having got some great shots with my GH2. (I got an NEX because it fits in my pocket with the new 16-50mm PZ lens, but Sony's handling and software is nothing on Panasonic's.)
Well of course, for double the price! The NEX5R is just fine, and the GH3 is a giant overpriced monster!
After struggling with a new HTC Desire for 6 months, which included numerous complaints and repair attempts, I finally gave up and got a Samsung phone. I kept the HTC though, and use it as a camera and radio, only.
Mjankor: Panasonic is doing some pretty awesome work with the m4/3 lenses.
I wonder if Leica is still their silent partner?
Chekr: @photo nuts
The fact is that kayone was not correct in his assertion. You being a sheep, jumped on the bandwagon and are now criticizing the author for something that he did actually get right.
You can apologize at any time.
No, not criticizing; grazing.
qwertyasdf: I'd rather these lenses be announced by Tamron / Sigmabecause I know Panny will price them outrageouslyDon't even dream that the 42.5 f1.2 will be comparable to Canon's 85L...I presume we don't shoot at F1.2 to bump up the shutter speed, we shoot at F1.2 to destroy the background.
Yes, the Olympus 150mm F2.8 might be christened 'the Beer Mug' after the Minolta lens they called 'the Beer Can.'
Low Budget Dave: Hey DPR, how about a full review? (While we are at it, can you explain the hotshoe to us?)
Looks like a great camera. I am sure that once Sony gets around to adding a touchscreen, we can finally play Angry Birds on a $1000 camera.
Yes, a full review. And please review the NEX-5R at the same time. You could do one of those parallel charts. It is virtually the same camera as the NEX- 6, the main difference being the touchscreen minus the EVS. Performance should be identical. They were introduced only 2 weeks apart.
Mark Schormann: Really hoping that camera manufacturers can get over this "Fn button" thing. It is stupid - it eventually just becomes a button that you aren't really sure what you last set it to. I would much rather have all the buttons do something useful and marked accordingly. Usage testing should easily determine what the majority of users want/need and the least used functions can be relegated to the menus for occasional use.
Now, with connected cameras, manufacturers should be able to automate the collection of button usage data!
That would make a good topic for discussion on the forum.
Trollshavethebestcandy: I find it interesting naysaying 400% pixel peepers demanding perfection from a revolutionary introduction 1st generation new technology (to consumer cameras) adapter that does so much at only $600. dont buy it if you are so righteously offended that smaller sensors can use FF lenses and get similar results and then some. What a bunch of wet blanket elitists. Go have fun with your gear and applaud new technology and the people who have the courage and brains to create something worth while. Geez! if there was no innovation you would all still be using peep hole cameras! you lot must be quite the life of the party. What have you created? My hats off to the men behind this. I cant wait to use one. Some valid points about some issues but you dont have to use one. Manual focus primes on this and vor video will be a boon. This will only get better. Where was digital photography 10 years ago? look at it today!
Don't be so envious, soon there will be a Metabones Speed Booster coming to an M43 store near you.
munro harrap: Sorry but still no appeal for me. It could have the D800 or D600 sensor. It doesn't.When you buy a camera at this price- and they are extremely expensive, you surely expect the results to equal film.
There is nothing to stop Sony using their own excellent full-frame sensors , and like Nikon give us the option of Full-frame use with suitable lenses and APS-C use with what we already have.
It is still just an R1 with bits on
He is correct. Sony are working on exactly such a camera right now. Like an RX-1 but a MILC. (interchangeable lens.) I'm guessing they will shoot for the $1000 mark to compete with Canon who are racing ahead to do the first FF DSLR under $1000.
C'mon, DP Review, can you give us a full review, please?
obeythebeagle: I purchased a nex3 when they first came out, and small is good. It is the perfect second camera, and when I walk the dog I take the nex3 instead of the dslr. It's the highest image quality in the smallest package--the new leica.
And after a year and a half of use, the controls have grown on me and are actually fun to use. Saving my pennies for a nex7.
You could leave your dog at home and just walk your 2 cameras!Yes I have a NEX-3 which I am selling because I just bought a NEX-5R yesterday! So far so good, and a far cry from the 3. I used my NEX mainly to hang manual lenses from. Focus-peaking is the ideal camera feature for doing this. Some of the better older lenses available very cheaply are Minolta MD or MC lenses, I have found. The Canon FD mount is too fiddly.
TxCamFan: This wasn't up yesterday. Why did you back date it? It would be nice to see the announcements with the newest on top regardless of how exciting they are.
I bought the fisheye converter for the 14-2.5 lens/ Olympus EPL1, and it works as advertised. Then I tried it on my Sony NEX3 with a Sigma 19mm f2.8 lens. Same size 46mm threads. Now this is amazing! Sharp as heck, no vignetting, angle of view about 105 degrees like an ultra-wide. It's perfect.
