While this Leica is not in my radar, this is one good looking camera.

In reply to:

topstuff: I really have only two things to contribute to this debate - as a non-A7 user, a non-fanboy of any brand, not only in cameras but in anything. Brand loyalty baffles me. I simply dont understand it.

Anyway, here are my two points:

Firstly, The A7R2 seems to be a very impressive thing. It moves the game on in many ways, not only in terms of its features but also its engineering: BSI sensors and 5axis stabilisation for example. No other camera anywhere has ever packed so much new stuff into it.

Secondly, judging by the arguments, tribal hostility and bickering on this forum, a vocal minority of DPR members appear to be completely mad.

You know who you are. This is a camera. Not the meaning of life. Stop being such jerks.

:)

I agree this is not life and death stuff. However, I applaud Sony for moving forward with ground making products. This will force other players to catch up or pay the consequences. Despite Sony coming up with the A7R2, there are still many compelling reasons to purchase Canon and Nikon FF cameras.

In addition, I do not mind hearing view points from fanboys with other brands.

While it is tough for me to defend any tactics used by the Paparazzi in any circumstances, I have little sympathy for the Royal Family. They, by birth, not achievement are born to lives of opulence, primarily at UK taxpayers' expense. Many in the world seek photographs of their family. I do not blame the Royal Family for being upset. but that is the price of being public figures.

On Fujifilm announces X-T1 IR for infrared photography article (203 comments in total)

I see that 6 people have indicated that they want a X-T1 IR camera. If all 6 people purchase one, Fuji will be 6 cameras closer to break even.

On Opinion: Did Sony just do the impossible? article (1085 comments in total)

If Sony can include all these innovations in a FF camera, how long will it take to migrate to APC and M43 cameras?

After reading about 50 or so comments, dpreview contributors are definitely not Canon's target market for the G3X.

User8606253983: Looking good, but outdated sensor. When will we get new sensors on m43. Been on 16 mp a while now. Would like my next om-d to have a few more pixels if possible.

3 years newer does does not mean that the sensor in the G7 vs G5 is 3 years better.

I have no idea whether the sensor in the G7 is any better than the sensor in my G5. I do not feel that the enhancements from the G5 to G7 are sufficient to upgrade. I may just wait until the Panny sensor has greater resolution or be convinced that the sensor in the G7 is significantly better than the one in my G5.

The photo looks very nice to me just as it is.

These comments are hilarious - better than late night TV!!!!
It seems as if the contest may be backfiring on contest promoters. They show no appreciation.

Let me summarize. Some suggest you get to use the camera body for a month, but you have to rent or buy the lens. The winner is stuck with having to pay insurance on the camera for the month. The winner must pay the cost of shipping the camera back to Phase 1. The winner will have to pay customs. The first prize is the use of the camera for a month. The second prize is that you get to look at a photo of the camera for a month.

I wish Greg a full and speedy recovery. My condolences to Greg's lost camera.

His photos are beautiful. Greg-be careful and stay safe and keep taking those wonderful images.

In reply to:

maljo@inreach.com: So much more detail in the Canon image; Canon is the winner here at high ISO.

I am bummed by the results. I expected that when Sony reduced the resolution to 12mpx, I would be able to shoot in near darkness at ISO 100,000+ and get great IQ. Until sensors can do that, I will continue to use my tripod and keep the ISO as low as possible, when conditions permit. How times have changed. When I shot with film, I thought ASA 400 was fast.

On Casio Europe releases 20.1 MP Exilim EX-ZS30 camera article (56 comments in total)

I am disappointed -- only 20MP. I was hoping that it would be 40mp so it would greater resolution than the Nikon FF.
