On article All about that lens: Sony Cyber-shot RX10 III review (341 comments in total)

Thanks (again!) for a very complete review.

The awards alway were some special bonus of appreciation. Alas without a clear context. In a reaction below there is a personal statement that gives more insight: "the 'tier' of award is left up to the lead reviewer's opinion, and isn't expressly connected to the percentage value attached to the camera, which is designed to be as objective as possible. I chose a silver award because in my personal opinion .. ."

In my view the DPR reviews are second to none! There are a few things that could be more clear. 1- classification in groups, 2-year of test and relative scoring, 3-the medal awards. For me the last is now personalised. Makes sense.

regards Perry

perry rhodan: OMG. You dropped a fujifilm from the roundup and forgot to rewrite the P900 part!? Better wake up. And this took 3 writers? This is sooo not DPR. What's wrong people?
This is my definitie last remake on this roundup. Feel like I have put more effort in this than the 3 staffmembers already 😨😤
Out.

You are right! Sorry for the harsh words. Not all I said is untrue but I should have been more carefull in my wording. Thanks for pointing me out.
Regards Perry

perry rhodan: Clickbait.... tralala Clickbait. ...

Oh well .. I clicked.

Serious, the roundups are no longer interesting for readers as they are more and more bad specsheet rehashes. No real information added for the beginner on the search and just teasers for the more or less informed readers. A lot of untested newer cams included. Conclusion.... klick as it is a bait.

Dear Richard, thank's for the reaction. You are right! I need to pipe down a bit. Sorry for the harsh words earlier. Please continu the good work. Kind Regards Perry

Oh my, have read the entire story here. Nothing serious to see. Cheap specsheet rehash is not bad. But a cheap specsheet rehash done bad is just BAD!

The 1s, limited control over dof?? What are you smoking DPR. It has THE most control over dof of any of these cameras. Reading the specsheet is enough to notice this. Please, if you rehash the specsheets here do it more carefully. Come on ....

Boissez: You didn't really need to spend time writing this article. A shorter, more consumer-friendly, article would have been:

"Why You Shouldn't Spend $500 on a Superzoom"

Or alternatively,

"Why You Should at Least Spend $600 on a 1" Superzoom Instead"

Thats the 200 they compare. And price difference is around 200 euro. So......

DPR please notice the FZ300 does have dual dial design. Seen the left side of the lens barrel lately? Come on.

Rick 70: Hello, I am a bit confused.
You made a similar review in here: http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/2015-roundup-long-zoom-compacts/16 but results were exactly the opposite, with FZ1000 on top and RXII on podium.
Cameras are the same as they used to be in 2015 as far as I know.
What happened?

Exactly! Was just thinking the same! Looks to me like a nice exposé that DPR "forgot" the older review ;-) Just goes to show how much fate you need to have.

It's 2016 right now, overall useability could well be the main decider for most users. Not IQ.

On article Beta: try out our new 'light' color scheme (722 comments in total)

Black is better! Much better! The black backgrounds were always comfortable. Best setting for reading on screen essentially when reading with low light surroundings in Evening and night.

PLEASE keep the "blackgrounds"!!

Frank C.: DPReview has become Sony Central, who would have thunk?

@davinator
Here we go again. I'm not a fanboy. Use many camera's from different manufacturers. Have a look at my shortlist of cameras with only the most/least loved. The rest sold or given away. No bias here. Outta here quickly.

perry rhodan: HUH!?
Considering the huge price differences it's very peculiar what body comparisons are made here. The pricepoint (at the top of the pack) and the ergonomics and lens landscape (at the very bottom of the pack) are NOT in the slightest bit appreciated in this conclusion. Oh well just saying. Tried 3 Nex/alpha milc bodies extensively the past years. The lens landscape and ergo sucked hard and there is no improvement. Period! Only some (overly expensive) non zooms are worth anything on 16 or 24 mp. Perhaps the only zoom that gets the heads up is the 10-18mm, at a price.

Mind you, I bought 3 bodies and a load of lenses the last 4 years. I wanted to like them. Also because of all the singing and dansing reviews. Every single time I was disgusted about the things I mentioned above and sold the stuff. Oh well.

@KM Hofman
You were addressing me? Experienced nex 3 veteran ? LOL
English is not my native language. But please read my post again and find the word nex3!

Taptaptap... thought so. Oh wait I wrote 3 Nex bodies hmmmm.
Nuff said.

@T3
BTW have a look at my shortlist of gear. Named my most/least liked there. I'm all in for superzooms, compacts, serious compacts, dslr, milcs apsc/m43. Next to the load of film camera's, too many ;-) The camera's I like stay with me, the others were sold or given away.

Usually I let this go, but I'm curious. Why so negative? All I want to produce and hear is honest arguments, as I stated clearly. You appear to twist words. You started the argument with calling my experience DUBIOUS! I really do not like that. Actually I do not accept that, because calling can lead to bullying.

It's my experience and I stated that explicitly. You are doing it again in the above post by saying things like "BUT OF COURSE YOU'RE JUST ....." etc". You are assuming all kind of things. You *greatly* appreciate several things. That's fine by me, glad you like it. You are comparing to DSLR bodies and like the lighter sony. That's also fine by me, glad you like it. That doesn't mean that I have to like it too. So you agree people can have different experiences. Can you agree also that this can lead to different opinions? see next>>

Having years of experience with 3 bodies, nex5n, next6 and alpha 6000 and several lenses and explaining my dislike is dubious? It's my real experience! Shooting slr for 42 years, Dslr for 16 years intensive. With gear from various makers. Some have to doubt my statements because they have a different opinion. That's ok. BUT, those that use stronger words are on my ignore list now. Yukkk! Get a life please. It's my strong feeling that ergonomics and UI of these bodies was hampering my use of them in a strong way. Anyone that have a different experience? Please chime in with some real and honest arguments. Happy shooting!
