On Photokina 2014: Ricoh stand report article (111 comments in total)
In reply to:

CatsAreFineArt: "And yes, we'll bring a polarizing filter next time."

Couldn't manage to find one at the largest photo show in the world? I thought I had it rough in the suburbs.

the ill conceived Nikon 10-30mm that comes with the new V3 & J4 models doesn't have a filter thread. never underestimate how low a camera maker can go.

radissimo: I know that Photokina is every two years, but introducing few lenses you can by IN A YEAR seems...I don't know... sad and lame at the same time ...

@Barney: i hope you'll press Nikon on their roadmap and why a player like Fuji is doing so much more for DPreview readers?

can't wait for DPreview to ask Nikon Execs all the tough reader questions.

nunatak: does it void the camera warranty? i seem to recall a thread discussing an issue about Nikon refusing to service a camera damaged by a bottom mount.

if i may, that might make for an interesting article all on it's own, but, again, IMO, it shouldn't excuse Nikon execs from the tougher issues/concerns (as raised above) that DPreview members have raised. should Nikon refuse to comment ... publish that. let the readers know. it's a better practice than propagating their soft replies ... i think.

i was referring to the dewey eyed school girl 2014 CP+ interview. IMO, DPreview went a touch soft on Nikon, given the number of other issues raised by Nikon forum members.

it might come down to whether it happened with a Nikon product or another?

perhaps something for DPreview to query Nikon execs with (how they determine impact damage?) rather than the usual softball questions?

the samples suggest a relatively sharp, general purpose lens. yet, in the opinion of the editors, which ones best exemplify the benefits of 5 stop image stabilization?

one small step for monkeys. one large leap for monkey-kind.

JDThomas: Oh, the Leica haters are out again. Leica cameras are ALWAYS going to be expensive. Why are you surprised? Get over it.

This is the same thing they did with the M9. They put out an M9-P and it cost $1000 more. Even used they are going for about $1000 more than a regular M9. This M-P isn't a shocking release. I was actually wondering what took them so long to release it.

If you want a cheap (but fake) rangefinder go buy a Fuji. If you want a real rangefinder save up and buy a Leica.

some folk need a red dot to identify a premium piece of gear.
others just need to look at their photos.
depends where one places their premium.

glad it lost the nail polish. now it looks as good as the common Fuji. :)

not to the best of my knowledge.

D610 replacements for D600.
V3 EVF advisory.

On Sony a5100 First Impressions Review preview (572 comments in total)
In reply to:

nunatak: now if only Sony could deliver all this in a 1" sensor — along with the glass required to make it work — they'd MILC the competition. :)

not backwards ... forwards. 1" is indeed smaller than APS-C, but APS-C is smaller than FF. FF is smaller than MF, and MF smaller than LF.

the 1" niche is up for grabs and, IMO, it'd be far more cost effective for Sony to dominate this niche than build lenses to a larger image circle.
