On Entry-Level Mirrorless Camera Roundup (2014) article (119 comments in total)
In reply to:

ThePhilips: I understand position of the DPR and yet....

The list makes no sense, because the best entry-level mirrorless camera is a discounted 1yo mid-/top-level model.

And what's wrong with that? What does being 1 year old have to do with anything? It's price point now is a bargain. It's (X-M1) still being sold by Fuji, and it is to their credit that it still stands up so well against the competition. It makes PERFECT sense. Have you ever used an X-M1? The IQ is exceptional.

gunkan: Nikon 1? really???

Fuji X-A1 is just amazing.

And the Fuji X-M1 is even better!

olypan: DPR (Amazon) have flogged this dead horse to the point you'd need to check its dental records.

it means that the horse has been flogged so much it has become unrecognizable, except for the dental records. Get it?

And to think I could've had this "luxury" camera instead of my modest Sony RX100 II for 1/4 the price (I paid $500 for it several months ago).

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX100 Review preview (827 comments in total)
In reply to:

Richard Franiec: I think that the review is well balanced and fair.
85% rating is maybe on the high side but LX100 seems to be the most complete and advanced enthusiast fixed zoom lens compact to date.
Gold award well deserved.

Richard - are you working on any accessories for the LX100?

In reply to:

Souciantmag: I'm absolutely in agreement that the LX100 looks like a great camera. But the praise lavished on it in this review is irritating, particularly the best of the best rhetoric. The 12MP sensor issue is a big problem. Not that we need megapixels, but for such a costly camera, with a great lense, it's a huge drawback. A Sony A6000 would be a better bargain. I say this being a big fan of Lumix cameras.

Is the 12mp sensor in the Sony A7s full frame camera a big problem? Nope. It's only a drawback in your eyes.

On Olympus OM-D E-M5 rumored to be out of production article (211 comments in total)
In reply to:

Stephen Scharf: I really don't understand the comment about the E-M5 appearing dated. It was and is a terrific camera, and still has a higher engineering specification than the E-M10, so I don't get where the "dated" view comes from.

I have nothing whatever against companies upgrading their model lineups, but I think back to the original and legendary OM-1, and that camera was in production unchanged for the better part of a decade. It still superbly fulfilled it's design specification.

What you need to also understand is that some of us still have the excellent 43 lenses which work great on the E-M1 (with PDAF on the sensor). The E-M5 struggled with these lenses as it is only CDAF. And, yes, I own both cameras.

In reply to:

JohnFredC: That Seattle view is ISO 200? No better than my little Sony TX-30 at 200. The shape and distribution of the noise granules may be different, but the LX100 shows just as much noise as that tiny camera does at 200 (meaning entirely too much for such an expensive camera). Sorry, not impressed.

Also, I must have been spoiled by my X-A1, which was substantially less expensive than the LX100.

Completely disagree.

In reply to:

nerd2: Actually I think RX 100 III can be better than this. LX100 has larger sensor but it is not BSI - so noise per ISO can be actually better with RX, and RX has much higher MP too. Lens spec is almost equivalent (if we ignore equivalence, just like panasonic does for marketing)

And RX is more compact and has flip LCD too (which should matter a lot for the target audience of these cams)

That's fine. You can keep the RX100 III (no Hot Shoe, poorer EVF, smaller 1" sensor). I'll go with the better camera - the LX100.

HeyItsJoel: G7X > GX7.

And while we're at it, E=MC2.

You are clearly no physicist, nor a photographer.

The larger sensor GX7 >>> G7X

In reply to:

raztec: Fabulous camera. Almost perfect, but not quite there yet.

I'll keep my LX7 for now and wait for the LX200 with a better EVF, 24-90mm lens, and tilting LCD which in this era is critical for video.

Okay, you do that. Wait another year or more.

Markol: This could have been so nice but no flash? Not even a small one for fill flash use? Hell they fit one in the GM1. Bummer.

I would rather have the hot shoe than a built-in flash. The LX100 has the hot shoe and clip-on flash.
