On Happy Holidays from dpreview article (70 comments in total)

DIgital Photography Review is my favorite web site for anything having to do with modern photography, at least in good light and at base ISO's. Highly recommended!

Happy Holidays, DPR!

I would like to own this camera, and also some very nice lenses to go with it, too.

On Have your say: Best High-end Compact Camera of 2014 article (74 comments in total)

Do you suppose most voters also own DSLR's and other types of cameras? If you could only own compact cameras by law (hypothetically speaking of course) would you still choose the LX100?

On ShareGrid offers peer-to-peer gear rental article (32 comments in total)

The app-based, zero margin "sharing economy business model" is very popular these days. Everybody wants strangers sleeping in the spare room, driving their cars, using their camping gear, and now, going on safari with their cameras and lenses as well. Historically, brokers would get a small cut of the proceeds. Nowadays, you're almost lucky if the broker lets you actually make a little bit of money from the use of your assets. Go figure.

On Pentax K-5 II and K-5 II S preview (20 comments in total)
In reply to:

cgarrard: No mention that I saw on the review that the LCD screen has a GLASS outer layer preventing scratches and the use of those annoying LCD screen covers. The glass screen is an upgrade along with it being gapless (better anti-reflection and no more dust etc. between the screen and protective layer like the K5 exhibited).

The K5II/s are at killer prices now and are 10 times the camera a Rebel or comparatively priced mirrorless camera are. What's not to love about this one?

Does the K-3 have a LCD with a glass outer layer too? Thx.

On Pentax K-3 Review preview (500 comments in total)

What does it mean when you really just happen to stumble across a $100 used K-x in a garage sale, and like it so much that you decide to buy a cheap, used K-7 without even reading the reviews, and then read the reviews, and realize you really want a K-5, and then buy a brand new K-5, but after using it only five months, you impulse buy a $809 brand new K-3 with a battery grip that will probably never see any use? (The battery grip, I mean!)

davids8560: At first glance, I find this new lens only mildly interesting. I wish Ricoh would put out a "roadmap" of lenses we can look forward to, even if they are still in the development phase. That would be encouraging.

Thanks for that link. Wish it was more specific, like the Fujifilm lens roadmap I saw a few weeks ago.

On Canon EOS 7D Mark II: A professional's opinion article (509 comments in total)
In reply to:

brownie314: to all the people complaining about the "adds for Canon". Lets assume - worst case scenario - Canon is paying DPR to get some space in the articles section. So what - you are getting all of this content for free. So you have to skip over a few articles that you are not interested in - what harm is done? On the up side - they are funding reviews of other equipment. So lets say Canon is behind this - get over it. Doing all of this equipment review isn't cheap.

It was me. I paid for it. I've been paying for everything all along.

I think this camera is going to do very well, despite whatever shortcomings it has.

On Photokina 2014: Nikon stand report article (98 comments in total)

What kind of free stuff do they give away at these big international shows? I see the guy in the photo has a backpack. Do they ever give away older, overstock DSLRs that never got sold and are just taking up valuable space in the warehouse, or irregular items that came slightly wrong out of the factory, like with "Nikon" misspelled, and stuff like that?

On Canon EOS 7D Mark II First Impressions Review preview (2702 comments in total)

Would this camera noticeably bump up the IQ of something like a Promaster f/3.5-6.3 100-300?

But in a larger sense, how would you guys say Canon stacks up overall nowadays among the key players?

On Fujifilm offers silver X-T1 and firmware update article (143 comments in total)

Can I mount one of these on a frisbee or a baseball cap, and capture the image to a QX1 in my pocket, and trigger the shutter with my newfangled Apple wristwatch, as well as find my car in a parking lot and check my pulse?

Thanks.
