5-axis image stabilization? Once again, Olympus leads the way on innovation and the big boys follow.

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.

Debankur Mukherjee: This camera was surely designed in Mars.........

Oh, come on now. You can't accuse Sigma of having the camera designed by Martians. Give them a break.

kewlguy: I don't understand why people complain - you don't like it you don't buy it, you want a cheap 18-135 you buy Canon APS,... Even a 4/3 user complained because of the MFD compared to Oly lens? LOL what's up with that?

To The Name is Bond - You don't know squat about the quality. And you don't own the lens. I do own the lens - and it is EXCELLENT. Next time, try actually holding and using a lens before you open your mouth and criticize it.

cgarrard: DPR, you forgot about mentioning the flash. Fine, I'll tell readers then...

When you depress the flash button, a small disco ball pops up and the speaker plays deadmau5.

Carl - I'm surprised at you. That is just mean <grin>.

In reply to:

mpgxsvcd: For the average consumer the FZ1000 will make GH4 owners wish they had waited a few months.

Correction: You have the larger 43 sensor in your GH4, NOT m43 sensor, as there is no such thing.

In reply to:

Biological_Viewfinder: This review is nothing new at all.

I have purchased Panasonic cameras because of DPR reviews, and EVERY SINGLE TIME I WAS EXTREMELY DISSAPOINTED.

I'm never going to fall for it again.

You obviously don't know what you're doing.

On Ricoh announces Pentax XG-1 superzoom article (195 comments in total)

Unfortunately, the Sony and Panasonic superzooms with the 1" sensor are going to kill this Pentax in the marketplace. I'm surprised that Ricoh went ahead and announced this camera. The only reason some of you will buy the Pentax is because of the price (and I am not anti-Pentax as I have a Pentax K30).

On Sony drops list price of Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 article (201 comments in total)
In reply to:

mwstebbins: I just bought this camera at the HIGHER price. IT has NOT yet arrived at my house. Does anyone know if SOny will rebate the difference? Or do I have to send the camera back to them UNOPENED, and buy another one? Thanks. M

If you bought it from Sony you can send it back and get your money back. I did this with a Sony compact several months ago. As an added caution, to avoid any issues, do not open the camera box. Just contact them by phone and get the details from them for the return.

Paul Kersey Photography: Who really cares about 4K video? I don't. Bridge cameras like this one are garbage. I'll bet you Panasonic processing will have same issues it's m 43s have had for years now.

I gave up on Panasonic after the GX-1.

Paul Kersey - Your comments speak for themselves. Absolutely worthless. Troll on.

Hli5d: 70 years.. I lived in Ca in 1994 when it was 50 years and remember the memorials.. Time flies. June 6 th is a special day for me. My dad was in the resistance during wwii and was together with his brother, arrested by Gestapo in the morning of june 6th 1944 - D-Day. My father escaped by pure luck, but his brother was shipped to concentration camp, which he survied after 11 month of agony. My father continued his actions in the resistance until the war finished. I have been raised by my father always telling me that we have our freedom today because of to the soldiers who died on the beaches that morning. My father passed away on june 6 th 1998... This date is just something to me.

Bravo. Very well said. As an American I have always had great respect for the French people of Normandy, who have always understood the sacrifice the Allies (and Resistance) made on that day, and throughout the war, to liberate France. Sadly, it seems that the rest of France has never really understood or appreciated this. To tourists and the native people of France, just make a trip to Normandy and look at all the graves. Maybe then you will give the allied countries the respect and admiration they deserve.

mauijohn: The japanese plan after they occupied the Philippines is to mine all the natural resources of the entire island of the Philipines such as copper, gold, timber, iron etc. They will use the people of the Philippines to work manually young and old and they just killed those too weak to work. Japan has a very low on those natural resources on their land. I will called this big time terrorism that will look Boko Haram and alquida combined like a chiken.

jaykumar - not only do you NOT know history, you are a MORON. Typical anti-American rhetoric. You are disgusting.

On Journey to the center of the Earth with Robbie Shone article (49 comments in total)

I do predominantly cave photography. I can assure all of you that many times we are shooting under adverse conditions, and carry larger cave packs that easily weight twice what others are carrying. Such packs will hold your camera (and maybe a backup camera), along with any additional lenses, and multiple (heavy) strobes. It ain't easy, but it is so worth it when I go over my shots at the end of a cave trip. And, no, most of the caves I explore do not have large cavernous rooms. It is not atypical, especially in California, to negotiate tighter, sinuous passage or do some climbing and crawling as you work your way through the cave - that includes squeezes. And then there is the vertical - rapelling or ascending on rope (with a full cave pack). That is the reality. If you want to get those special photos you need to work for it. So, the next time you look at a cave photo, you will know and appreciate what the photographer had to do to get those shots.
