evilmagicnut: anyone else wishing the converter could also function as a USB dock for MFA and lens firmware updates?
You don't need too. AF is always accurate on a mirror-less camera since the detection is perform on the main image sensor itself. Any AF inconsistency you see might simply due to random variation instead of a systematic correctable bias.
hey there DPR, do you know if this will work with Tamron EF mount and Canon EF mount lenses?
Hey DPR, thanks for the hands on! How well does this work with a 3rd party's 3rd party lens. For example, like EF Mount Sigma lens.
The sad thing is that a MISS FOCUSED shot from a decent P&S/phone still has MORE resolution than an IN FOCUS shot from a Lytro.
Mister Roboto: $600 + $100 EVF I am sold!
The VF cost $250 atleast.
Canon so scared this well cannibalize their Rebels that they rip the EVF right out of this poor thing.
KennyXL: Sigma is looking to kick in the teeth of Nikon and Canon. I'd be 0% shocked if this was at least as good as Nikon's 24mm f/1.4 at a significantly lower price.
pretty sure this Siggy will be better optically :D
Waste of time, it's not like you can fit a DSLR into your pocket even WITHOUT a lens.
Instead, they should do something like the "first DSLR kit lense that starts at 24mm equivalent".
No 1'' sensor, no a chance against competition...
JGoodard: Seriously, no viewfinder?
sure looks like it.
It's a crime.
Errr... EVF plz! If Canon forces us to buy the $300 add on EVF...
Eigenmeat: So i don't know which is the worst: the flareor...The fact that a critical precision module like the AF sensor can be misplaced to such degree that is visible to the naked eye... I thought we were taking about micron order of precision here on $2300 camera.
OK, I agree that if you AF tune your lens, this would be fine. Since DPR believe every lens should be AF tuned before usage, then what should lower end DSLR user do? Are you guys implying that entry level DSLR are simply un-usable outside of the slow zooms? If that is case, you should say so clearly on your entry level DSLR reviews.
The great majority of DSLR sales are entry level, and non of those bodies have AF fine tune. Even with the kit zoom, CDAF yield noticeably more consistent result than untuned PDAF based on my experience. The difference is easily as large as $100 lens compared to a $1000 lens.
You can argue that most casual consumer won't notice this. I think that is abit a like a scam, as a typical consumer think DSLR offer better quality. However, due to untuned PDAF, people can usually get much more consistent result with a good P&S than an entry DSLR.

Well is dpreviews talk about it, then it's pretty much confirmed!
majicmoments: Progress is important i know... but i dont need 40 million pixels per image clogging up my i pad... How about achieving 25 iso Olympus?... or graduated filters in camera?..say grey/blue/nd grads.. now that would be a blast!
and the ipad has a camera too!
Martin87: Sony posting a firmware update for their cameras? That's quite unusual for them
onlooker, take a look at my thread here:http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/54173076
The FZ1000's lens is very good from 50mm onward, at wide angle though, it's not very good.
Now i need to go Tamul Waterfall!
PRe-ordered!!! Most exciting camera in years for me!!Not everyone want to shuffle multiple lens with DSLR and mirrorless.And I am sure the FZ1000 lens will run circles around a DSLR superzoom lens.
