On Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 III Review preview (836 comments in total)

I think it would be helpful if DPR listed alternatives as part of these reviews.

Paul Auclair: like the camera strap.
new firmware update mostly for underwater shooting?. i did not know there was so many folks using OMDs underwater.

Well if Nikon can make a special D810 for the 6 people who shoot stars and planets....

Mike FL: I think it is the time for Oly to ask some one to make a new MFT sensor in stead of paint some of its body parts with FAKE Titanium.

If Oly like to sale a "limited edition Titanium", make some of its body parts with REAL Titanium.

1) Because I read it somewhere and 2) it is too cheap.

Damo83: $950???!!!!!

If the job you're doing pays $20,000 for the images and it is essential you get them from say Burkina Faso to the client in London, you'd happily pay $950 for a rugged backup.

In reply to:

EvilTed: Amateur Photographer from the UK, has a completely different review, claiming the noise handling is great and that the DR is better than the D750 or D810.

I smell a rat DP :(

Since they have yet to review the D810 they may not know this...!

Marty4650: Except for that 28mm prime, those are some really big lenses!

They probably are pretty good lenses, but it defeats the purpose of buying the "smallest FF body" when you need to attach a big honking lens to it.

Of course, everything is relative. I'd say these kits are still a lot more compact than any Nikon D810 with similar lenses....

You can't make the lenses small and keep the sensor big. Physics!

No camera without a viewfinder can be taken seriously.

Seems pretty niche to me!

In reply to:

Douglas F Watt: How does it get to be so big at just slightly wider (11mm vs the 12mm of the Nikon), while the Nikon is 2.8 and it's f4? Don't get that one . . . .

Because the Nikon is a better lens..

Only f4? Who wants a lens that slow? I think the Nikon 14-24 f2.8 is still better.

In reply to:

MPA1: It seems to be missing an essential (IMV) component: a viewfinder.

An LCD is NOT a viewfinder. It is a screen.

Or too complex for Americans?

On Canon EOS 5DS / SR First Impressions Review preview (2983 comments in total)

Technically impressive but practicality lacking for many uses - which at least they seem to have recognised.

In reply to:

Fogsprig: I've got E-M10. Of course, I gave it my vote BUT the real best product of 2014 is A7S (absent in polls, to my surprise).
P.S. You guys are weird in that A7II craze.

I agree that it is odd the finest low light still camera ever made is not in the running!

In reply to:

MPA1: How can that Sony win - it's not even in the shops in NZ yet!

I say it because it has been available for such a short time that it cannot realistically have been evaluated by people voting for it. Frankly a product that has not yet completed worldwide release should not even be in the list.
