Pandimonium: So anybody got any idea about the mystery rubber rimmed unmarked right dial?

Likely MadHamster nailed it.

Amazing how so many folks knock this bag and the company without doing their due diligence in research.

I think someone translated wrong; it's the customer's dollars that are most important for Sony. They could give a rat's behind about customer opinion or customer experience.

BeaverTerror: Incorrect headline, very poor journalism by DPreview staff, maliciously done on purpose to generate page views?

Not the world's shortest zoom lens by a long shot. As the footnote indicates, it's only the shortest DSLR zoom lens.

Journalism and DPReview don't belong in the same sentence.

select: I think the K-3 is the best aps-c on the market, in this color is awesome!
but they should make some more lenses and a FF camera...

An object is not "better" in and of itself--only in regard to how it suits an individual's purpose.

Who cares? These and other cameras can shoot a decent pic at quite high ISOs. Do you think you folks could focus on something important for a change? Perhaps photography, for instance.

Zvonimir Tosic: What is the point of these random snapshots done with random lenses?
There are already hundreds of superb photographs taken by renowned photographers with this camera that are nothing short of amazing.

I believe people buying cameras such as K-3 et al aren't really interested in snapshots; such galleries are maybe good for pocket compacts, but for top of the line weatherproof DSLRs with 8.3 fps, 24MPs, selectable AA, etc ..?

C'mon. Times change, people's habits change, but DPR's habits never, it seems. Good old 2004 is still on around here.

I agree. They just do it to give the impression they're providing something of value. And for SEO, of course.

On article Hands-on with the retro Nikon Df (230 comments in total)

Seems to me Pentax offered a kit with a 35mm lens (K30?), which is essentially a 50mm view. So, it hasn't been *that* long since someone has offered a standard FL lens in a kit.
And Pentax has always had full compatibility with its old lenses. Everyone's making it sound like this is a new concept.

On article Nikon Df combines classic design with modern technology (314 comments in total)

While I'm undecided on the styling, the function is what matters most to me. I'm curious to see what others have to say about how this camera works in the real world.
However, once again, Nikon has shown its greedy colors. I was excited about this camera, but the price tag is ridiculous, even with the sooper-dooper sensor. Until the price becomes reasonable (<$2000), I'll stick with my other full frame Nikon, the F100.

I love the idea of this camera and would buy it in a second if the price wasn't so astronomically out of line.

tommy leong: are you able with a quick glance
tell from this Corporate release
how this camera is different from its siblings ???

What art of communication is this...

Different sensor...this camera doesn't have the X-trans type of sensor its siblings have. It has the Bayer type of sensor found in most digital cameras.

ManuelVilardeMacedo: Well, well... not bad for a dead medium!

Seriously, I chanced to try an FP4 125 Plus roll during the past two weeks. After seeing the results I must say I'm impressed with the sharpness and contrast this film is capable of. Grain is not as smooth as Kodak's T-Max, but somehow it adds expression to the pictures.

"dead medium"?
They're opening a lab because the demand is there. Sounds to me like the medium is quite alive.

NickR: $16 a roll?
150 rolls or a $2400 DSLR, which would you rather have?

The film, absolutely!

I'd like to see a 135mm prime. Or at least a 100mm.

Been waiting for the 40mm to come out. Waiting to see some samples, but now very tempted to invest in Fuji. Also like to see something in the 150mm to 200mm equivalent range.

Another reason I need to go Gimp.

On article Just posted: Pentax MX-1 Preview Samples (51 comments in total)
In reply to:

Zvonimir Tosic: We all tend to judge cameras by its peers. If the newcomer is somewhat different, we tend to nag about it. However, my experience with the MX-1 was revealing insofar. MX-1 has something cameras in its class have missed for a long time (maybe never had): a great shooting balance. Which I think is due to its retro inspired design, materials and — proportions.
Having it tried side by side with Leica X2 and RX100, I felt both X2 and MX-1 simply cling to your hands. You're not tired of them. RX100 is slippery, like a soap, can't really use with one hand. MX-1 you can operate with one hand, and won't lose balance. It stands firm. It's not heavy as they describe it, but the feeling is that of stability, quality and comfort. Not lens heavy like many P&S cameras, even with the lens fully extended.
Anyway, I suggest anyone to go and try, and never ever judge a camera based on paper specs alone; you'll be sacrificing something specs cannot tell.

I prefer my photos sharp and thus always shoot with two hands.

If it had a 40mm lens, I'd snap it up in a second!
