Timmbits: Page 9, aside from the moiré where the Sigma excels, the Ricoh puts the Nikon to shame! The test-shot differences are striking.
I'm surprised to not see half the posts being criticism for no viewfinder... are those three people asleep?
There are 2 types of OVF.
You can get 21, 28 and 35 mm with Ricoh GR.
The lens of Ricoh kills Nikon Coolpix A.
Video - H.264 format
Shutter - Mechanical, 300s-1/4000s
Wrong info in your specs, DPREVIEW
It's 100% killer of Coolpix A.
I choose K-5IIs to compare and I see K-5IIs is simply better.
Absolutely empty camera. Real mediocrity
Peter62: The Hi-ISO images are phantastic!
I am highly impressed!
If the real ISO and marked ISO are the same...X100 has real ISO1000 at ISO1600-6400.
PhotoHop: This looks interesting, but pricey I'm sure.Maybe they can finally get rid of that "Tokina Glow".I had the 11-16mm f/2.8...lens for me was too big and I had problems, surprisingly with it's focus speed. Sold it.I am currently thrilled with my Sigma 15mm f/2.8 on my D90...easy distortion correction when you want it and cool effects when you don't. Little teeny thing to.
focus speed for ultra-wide lens...you really care about it?
iudex: How about Pentax? Sigma used to make lenses for K-mount and this one looks like a perfect prime I would possibly buy for my K-30, so why not Pentax?
Sigma had already produced 30/1.4 for K-mount. Your answer is wrong.
How to use new lenses 19/2.8, 30/2.8 and 60/2.8 mm in manual focus mode?
I see only one BIG plus - size and weight. With 28 mm and 16 MP APS-C without AA filter - it's VERY cool, inconspicuous tool for street photography. But it's all.The lenses must be f2 for street.
IrishhAndy: What a stupid camera. Overpriced and just one useless focal length.
They will produce A2 later with 36 mm and A3 with 50 mm. :) It's business.
Osvaldo Cristo: It looks the camera a lot of posters are looking for according their critics for the previous models I read exactly here, in the front page of dpreview:
DX sensor, macro capabilities, reasonable WA, fast lens, crazy high ISO, raw capabilities,... oh surprise: I found again lots of complains!!!
Where is the crowd that asked that??
No any interesting thing at all. Not bad, but mediocrity. No any spices. It doesn't attract. You list things that it's standart for photo camera. The lens is not fast, by the way.
Ulfric M Douglas: That optical viewfinder is beautiful.
My GXR+A12 28/2,5 is smaller.
Coolpix A could be much interesting if it would be 24/1.8-2 and WR.
Shunda77: Fuji are finally really pulling it all together, they've had some pretty big teething problems with their x series in the past few years, but now it is maturing very well indeed.Fuji are looking like they will finally become a very serious player in the digital era, they have done what Kodak couldn't do.
Fuji is dwarf who want to survive in digital era. Marginal system, low sales, strange techonlogy.
ogl: Relax, guys! DPREVIEW is not independent reviewer for many years already. They just help to sell camera of their owners. It's business and nothing else.Dpreview is sold to Amazon on 2007.
"He who pays the piper calls the tune".
I'm not fanboy and never was. I don't care about DPREVIEW's reviews at all. I tell the truth. DPReview is the faithful dog of AMAZON. Fujifilm advances X system and X-trans with lavish hand.If they can't sell this marginal system, they will fail.
I'm sorry that ET2, dengx and MJJSevilla are the victims of marketing and consumer society.
DR's tests of DP are ridiculous, by the way.
K-01 - I don't care about K-01 and DPR's awards. It's the game for silly fans.
I've used Ricoh GXR for a last year.
