On article Leica T (Typ 701) First Impressions Review (2257 comments in total)
In reply to:

dale thorn: Got my first 'T' image today in b&w - the detail is amazing, and it really has the Leica Look (not kidding). Much better than I expected, and that was with the 18-56.

I bet $4000 on it, and I'm satisfied (and I'm a *very* picky customer).

SPerez: (1) It is evident that you are angry with Leica, because they have sent a unit of the Leica T much after that to almost any other photography site. Please improve your relations with them. Your customers will be grateful.
(2) Center your report in the main aspects of the camera: the quality of the pictures you can take with it, and the quality of its construction . In your report, you have been looking for the worst attributes of the Leica T. Again, please meet your customers demands and forget your little quarrels with Leica. My experience with the Leica XV and now with the Leica T: gorgeous photos, sharp from edge to edge and splendid colors. And both are built in a superb quality. Nothing in common with any other camera I have owned before.
(3) Read carefully the instructions of the camera to avoid mistakes in your report. Check how to manual override the camera in order to focus manually with Focus set to AF mode; it is possible and very easy to do Post rectifying your mistake

We got the point, no fairness required. It was obviously a slam against Leica, who must not have come across with any favors. Michael Reichmann (a real photographer) loves the T.

This looks very cool, very capable. I hope that since we've been through the EVF/no EVF controversy a million times now, people will just leave it be so we can read more about the other features.

It looks loads better than the Sony.

As an M camera owner, it looks weird. I've seen white before, no problem. I've seen rounded before, no problem. This thing needs something, like maybe some black trim lines, I dunno.

On article iPhone 5s compared in our new studio test scene (7 comments in total)
In reply to:

jimr: Every other test of the iPhone 5S has found its IQ significantly better than that of the iPhone 5.....

I have comparison images here:
http://www.dpreview.com/galleries/5235253614/albums/iphone5-and-iphone5s-comparisons

If you scroll around, you'll see that each has sharp areas and blurry areas, and those are random and unaffected by wind or shaking. My conclusion is the lenses are both uneven in quality at many places across the lens.

On article iPhone 5s Studio Comparison (263 comments in total)

I can't find my post here in these comments, but I posted detailed images from both the 5 and 5s on my gallery and in the iOS forum, showing both to be rather poor cameras when images are viewed at 100 percent. The tremendous variation in quality across the images at random points are unexplainable.

HawaiiVolcanoes: This camera is junk. Thank you very much.

The reviews are still coming in, the lens is not just good it's superior, and the trolls who have been posting factless attacks on the camera and its users are just identifying themselves by the content of their posts.

dale thorn: Is the biometric mandatory? I'd like to know how I can avoid being fisted by Apple, although it's certainly inevitable in the coming apocalypse.

The reason I asked is because in the 100 articles I read, plus Apple's speil, not a mention - not one,

dale thorn: Corporate suicide. What are they doing with that $100 billion in cash?

Steve Jobs is dead, much like the zombies who replaced him.

Edit: I was just kidding when I asked about the cash. They'll steal it of course.

13 mp on a smartphone sensor? The Nikon S9500 is 18 mp I think on a 1/2.33 sensor and has more pixel smearing than I've ever seen in any camera. I can't wait to see what this one does.
