On Fujifilm X-E2 Preview preview (454 comments in total)

Think about it:

D Preview (like Segaman says...) doesn`t want to include the studio scene of the X-E 2 in the summary. Only if you open the studio scene of other cameras you find that one of the Fuji.

It is not a kind attitude. Obviously D Preview is very busy cooking the reviews of imitations of mirrorless in order to put it a crown...

So good is the X-E 2 that they have to avoid talk about it?? And so don`t subtract attention and sells from that "old fashioned" FF????

On Have Your Say: Best DSLR / SLT of 2013 article (349 comments in total)

hey, ragmanjin, an explanation to your question is very simple:

This very interesting site ha$ a Nikon in the heart and the Nikon users are comfortable here, so it`s a sort of Nikon Club. And leaving aside this fact, nobody can deny that this gear is very very good. But popularity is just a perception...

And perceptions (with technical basis or not) help sells..., so it`s matter build it.

In a word: enjoy the site and don`t worry with the ads.

Speechless. Thank a lot for the note. One could behold those images a long time looking for answers and one can rejoice with new questions emerging from the same images.

Yes, it seems that X-Pro2 does not arrive in first months of 2014... or it`s a kind present for the XPro1 owners before the announcement of the successor?

What???

The OM-D EM-1 owns a very fast AF, and now the new firmware means:

• Improved AF operation
• Image stabilisation in sports, children mode and C-AF has been improved

It sounds amazing!!!! I would like a review about how deep are the changes with this new firmware...

Dear DPReview team:

If the studio comparison is available for the Fuji XE-2, why the index of this preview does not show it?? I found it reading the preview of a different camera...

On Sony Alpha A7 / A7R preview (2381 comments in total)

I check the Fujifilm X-E2 First Impressions Review and I find out that in the index doesný appear the Studio scenes of the Fujifilm XE-2.

Nevetheless watching this Studio scenes of Alpha 7 I'm glad to find the results of the XE-2. Thanks DP Review...

It`s amazing the details that yields the Fuji XE-2 along high ISOs. I hope its AF be much better that XE-1. The camera would be terrific.

Alpha 7 no doubt gets a lot of detail and free of moire in difficult patterns; XE-2 although is great even in very low noise, shows strong moire in patterns like the concentric circles (low center zone).

Olympus EM-2 also get a very nice quality despite the small sensor even in ISO 6400 even with low light in a lot of textures and patterns; it`s an obvious improvement comparing with EM-5.

Manfred Bachmann: Yesterday I have had both in hands, the A7 AF is faster! Nice cameras for sure and surprise for me, the EVF is really good!

Sorry, so sorry. I like a lot the concept of the A7, but the fact right now about A7 is that the experience of professional reviewers points out that there is a SERIOUS trouble with the fast A7 AF : it`s not accurate.

And I repeat, it would be great that Sony be able to fix the trouble, but right now A7 AF doesn't work.

Maybe A7 AF is faster, but it is not accurate, according with DP Review first impression in "real life" (and other reviewers find the same trouble).

I would like that problem disappear...

Bananasplit: I was thinking to upgrade from 7D to 5DmkIII. Now, I will wait and see if Canon reacts with something a bit smarter than a white painting. If not, I will buy an A7r and a metabones adaptor. I will then forget Canon bodies keeping only my beloved Canon lenses.

Take a chair... I don´t think Canon react very soon...

On Olympus OM-D E-M1 Review preview (2140 comments in total)
In reply to:

sunOrbiter: I am comparing M-1 with M-5 in Studio Comparison. At least in the normal light mode M-5 images seem to be more appealing in terms of contrast. At low light the difference is minimal.

Searching in the web, I find the same results; but, maybe is there a small halo in the EM-1? I think the "baking" in camera in the EM 1 applies a slight "unsharp mask"...

xlsmile: Hello E-M1 lovers and haters!

I am wondering if anyone has raised a question about E-M1's sensor performance in poor lighting conditions and long exposures. There seems to ba a major problem with E-M1. These are the links I found so far (including my own thread on Flickr) reporting the issue (with images to scratch your head about):

Has anyone had similar issues with E-M1's sensor performance?

Thank you!

Hi, audiomarc, very interesting considerations... And, yes, EM-5 still is a very sexy camera...

Boris F: Nice camera, top IQ, cheers Oly!
Personally, as OMD EM-5 owner, I'll wait for OMD EM-7 with a next generation sensor, HDR, focus peaking and WIFI.
For now, I like my E-M5.

Thank you so much, Boris; the technical reflection is very useful.
Best regards

Very nice images! The fourth, beginning from the end, is lovely. I think the sensor or the lens are dirty; the upper left corner shows points that seems dust????

On Canon Korea teases new camera, EOS M2 or SL1/100D? article (259 comments in total)

If it`s a M2, I guess Canon wants a new chance to clean the name of the mark. So the sense common would say that the troubles about AF of the first M will not appear anymore and, maybe, the IQ would be better.

About the review, well, the happy guys of DP that love light gear (me too) have shown us that there are two possibilities: 1- if the machine is so bad like the M1, they'r going to say that there is a lot of work and bla bla... At the end, it will pass a year without a review (it was the fortune of the first M). 2. But if it`s a good or at least a decent machine, the happy friends of DP will offer us a complete review very soon...

"The Olympus TCON-17X boosts the camera's telephoto reach to 510mm (equivalent) without affecting the maximum aperture of F2.8"... hmmm that sounds too much good; but I need images...

Hi, Boris F., I am considering an EM 1 or an EM 5. I think like you that maybe the next EM would be great (20MP for example could be more useful with a better ISO 6400). But I have a question, please: although the AF of the EM-5 is very fast, is it true that sometimes -just sometimes- does not get an accurate focus even with good light? Thank you.

In reply to:

Valentinian: is E M1 AF faster than E M-5 AF with micro 4/3 lenses mounted on both cameras? how faster?

in other words: did Olympus improve the contrast AF ? or did contrast detection AF already reach its limit?

Hi, wansai: thank you to share your experiences.

I am considering get the EM 1. Although I would like to use that amazing 24-80mm F/ 2.8, I also think, at the same time, about the humble 24-100mm F/3.5-6.3. It`s well known that this lens is good but has limitations, for example the AC. Nevertheless, do you notice some improvements in its performance with the EM-1???

In reply to:

Alejandro del Pielago: I like it so much, but $ 2500 is a lot for me (EM 1 body + 12-40mm f/2.8).

Because the idea of kick the heavy 5D M. III is not so obvious... I would like to keep the Canon at least some time and only if the Oly conquers my heart and my printer, well "hasta la vista, Canon". But, right now, the Oly cracks my wallet and my heart.

Yeah, a combo could be the EM-5 + the 12-40 f/2.8. I could save $400.

And although almost all my gear is Canon and I like sooo much my 5D m. III, I don´t think Canon is going to offer me a 5D m. IV with just 500g... that my weak back would love.
