On The new Canon 35L II will be a thing of beauty article (193 comments in total)

I like Canon lenses. They make some good ones. However, I don’t own any Canon cameras or lenses for that matter anymore so I won’t be purchasing any of their new offerings.

It is a shame they didn’t continue to be leaders in the pro-sumer video department after the 5D MK II. I definitely would have continued to buy Canon products if they had done that.

This thing will be $200 by Christmas.

Olympus offers the EM10 MKII for about the same price. It has excellent built-in image stabilization, weather sealing, an EVF, 1080p @ 60 FPS video, 8.5 FPS burst mode, and a host of built in features that are extremely useful.

This Canon M3 wasn't exciting when it was first announced. Now it really just seems irrelevant.

Why? It might have had a chance a year ago but not now with excellent fixed lens options from Sony and great Mirror-less options from Panasonic and Olympus.

It is almost as if Canon can't decide whether it wants their M-series to fail or not.

On Sony Alpha 7R II: Real-world ISO invariance study article (334 comments in total)
In reply to:

FantasticMrFox: Is there a special reason DPR keeps publishing separate 'studies' of ISO invariance, AF capabilities etc. for one specific camera?

Because it is nice to see this information now instead of needing to wait for the entire review to be complete.

What is the most ISO invariant camera Dpreview has tested so far?

On Crazy 8: Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8 sample gallery article (106 comments in total)

The GX8 is a nice camera. I just find it hard to overlook the fixed lens offerings from Sony at the moment when the price of cameras like the GX8 is so high.

I can buy a GH4 for the price that Amazon lists the GX8 at right now. That decision is a no brainer.

On Crazy 8: Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8 sample gallery article (106 comments in total)

I really like the new gallery. Now I can quickly scan through the photos to see what settings were used. I can skip right to the high ISO photos if that is all I am interested in.

This new gallery is a BIG improvement to the site. Job well done Dpreview!

On Samsung launches Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+ post (133 comments in total)

This will start the decline of Samsung Smart phones. Better go buy some Apple stock while you can still afford it.

On Samsung launches Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+ post (133 comments in total)

I was just telling someone the advantages of the Samsung phones over the iPhone last night. The two biggest reasons in my opinion were the replaceable battery and the mini-sd slot. Without those two things you might as well buy an iPhone. Samsung has lost their minds with these new phones. The "edge" feature is a gimmick no one wanted.

I will listen to what they have to say when the micro-SD card slot is added back.

On Rough and ready: Olympus Tough TG-4 review article (240 comments in total)

The addition of RAW is a good thing. It still doesn’t make this a great camera though.

I just wish they would make a water proof camera with a 1” sensor and a smaller zoom range. I just need 20mm-50mm for underwater work. If it has an F2.0-F2.8 lens that would be perfect for my needs.

The video is cool but seriously why did they upload it at 320p to youtube? Can we at least get 720p?

This would be an amateur astronomer's dream until they saw the price.

It isn't perfect but it really is close to perfect for my needs.

On Shooting with the Canon PowerShot G3 X article (316 comments in total)

I understand why people still buy Canon DSLRs because they have so many Canon lenses that they don’t want to get rid of. However, I don’t understand buying a compact fixed lens camera from Canon when the competition is so obviously superior.

I am sure this is a fine camera. However, gaining the 400-600mm range is not worth giving up almost everything else that would make your picture quality and shooting experience better.

The one thing this camera has going for it is the Canon name. Otherwise it simply can’t match what everyone else offers.

Overall a decent set of images. I would have liked to see a few more pictures with people in it though since this camera has been marketed at the high resolution portrait photographer market.

In reply to:

mpgxsvcd: I feel confident that the RX100 MKIV can do everything that the enthusiast user would ever want to do and probably just about everything that the pro-sumer user would want it to do. Some cameras may do specific things better but nothing does everything as well as this camera does.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this camera to virtually everyone. Even if you are a Canon, Nikon, Panasonic, Olympus, Fuji, Pentax….etc fanatic this camera would have to intrigue you.

If you need more reach then I am certain the RX10 MKII would probably fit your needs better.
