Zafar Kazmi: Great! DPReview gives Nikon D800 a solid 'B-' ! What does Nikon has to do to get a B+?

Some people just can not be pleased.

Maybe stop people like you from being fanboys.

The Silver Fox: Ideas on what flash to pair with this bad boy? I know it's all the rage nowadays to shoot without flash, but it *does* have its uses!

I would also get the 600R, it also works for video.

The Silver Fox: I'm sold on the OM-D and will buy one next month. While I plan to invest in several of the primes, I will also get an Oly zoom lens for general purpose shooting. But I'm unsure which kit lens to go with. Any suggestions?

I understand that the 12-50mm 1:3.5-6.3 is weather-sealed, which is a great thing to have for travel. However, both the 14-150mm 1:4-5.6 and the 40-150mm 1:4-5.6 R are equally compact, with 3 times the zoom capability. Coming from SLR's, I'm new to m4/3, so I'm free to invest as needed. Though I've been taking pictures since a wee lad, I'm a relative newcomer to serious photography, and an out-and-out newcomer when it comes to m4/3. So, any help would be appreciated.

Sorry...12-50mm. I have the 14mm/20mm they are high quality lenses and happen to be very small and light. The 45mm is my favorite. This is coming from a person that has owned the Canon 50mm 1.2L, 85mm 1.2l and other great lenses....Olympus 45mm f1.8 is still my favorite.

I would get the 12-150mm for macro and all weather design.
For primes I would start off with:
14mm f2.5
20mm f1.7
45mm f1.8

JEROME NOLAS: So once again, what is the reason I want to buy this camera? Over priced PEN with good IQ, so what. For fancy fools!!

Your right, no amount of camera can make up for lack of talent. Stick with your iphone 4s and camera+.

In reply to:

John McCormack: AfterShot Pro plays nicely with the Big Boys like LR and Aperture. Runs fast and doesn't require cataloging. It's a steal for the price compared to LR.

Maybe the reason LR went to $149 from $300 msrp

Glad to see corel in on the ball with new cameras. I hope they just address performance issues now and start offering features LR4 does not have like HDR and panorama.

On Canon acknowledges 'light leak' in the EOS 5D Mark III article (282 comments in total)

I have the MKIII and I would have NEVER noticed this "problem". If canon has a fix that requires me to ship it in for a week or so...i will just keep my camera as is. Its not a big deal.

In reply to:

Jogger: The sensor is far too small to be using PL or FF lenses. Its smaller than 43 and once you crop, you probably looking at a 3x crop factor.. good luck getting any decent wide to normal lenses. They should have just gone with an APSc/S35 sensor.

2.5x sounds about right.

Will it be as good or better than the current GH2 or the GH3 (should be out soon)

Jogger: Why would anyone buy this over a D800 or 5D3?

Its a studio camera. I can see this being the fashion standard and also medical applications.

In reply to:

FastFisher: Forget the image quality for now.
Korean users are finding what seems like a major design flaw with 5DIII.
Currently light leaks through the top LCD panel and it screws the metering sensor. Therefore if you shoot anything beside manual, your exposure will be incorrect. Test it for yourself and you'll see.

I test my camera and no leak after 30 secs with LCD on the whole time. I also put a flash light up to the view finder and no leaks. My friends D800 Exploded, check out the D800 forums for pictures. Something inside of it.

In reply to:

lindner: You guys should test less cameras and test those quick. Huge amounts of previews (and 'overviews' and shootouts and whatnot) in the 'recents' but very few actual reviews. Fewer but actual 'reviews' would be So Much Better.

Can we get the editor to do reviews?

In reply to:

Sdaniella: earlier i had pointed out Philip Bloom's review of the 5DMkIII video...
he has had an about face turn on his opinion for its video footage, where aliasing is not a problem and the sharpness in fact now is stunning if resorting to a mere 'sharpening filter' in post...

you have to see the footage to see the massive change in video IQ
http://philipbloom.net/2012/03/22/5dmk3/

no bizarre software crack required, like Pany's GH2, nor bizarre tear-down of the body to remove the anti-aliasing filter by one of his colleagues (on EOSHD). nor running totally 'default' and unprocessed as the above review shows.

while most have felt 5DMkIII footage 'too soft' or 'mushy'... that is just default footage... if one looks at optional pp (that most do anyway before publishing), then it is now stunningly peerless amongst any dSLR FF or APS sensored. making even captured stills off of video look crisp.

odd... that so many other review/comparison websites are silent on what Philip Bloom came across...

Philip found that the output of the mkII did not do well with post (as far as sharpening) but the MK III just loves it. Watch his video for explanation.

This camera is going to be a 4k (aka 4,000 buttons). At this time it only has 2k buttons now but they will add a keyboard later bringing the total to 4k+ buttons.
