On Otus Readings: the Zeiss 85 F1.4 Otus Comparison article (223 comments in total)

These combinations have total weights of around two kilos or over four and a half pounds. Dunno about glass from the fires of Mordor but my PL 25mm 1.4 on an M10 plus a 60mm Sigma and 20mm 1.7 does not put my back out after a few hours...

The Leica M Monochrom (Typ 246) will be available in early May for £5750 / €7200

According to Photography blog.

On Sony Alpha a7 II Review preview (837 comments in total)

Is this the same sensor as the Nikon D610, 750 et al?

Theelderkeynes: This list is a disaster and DP should rerun it. Heaven knows how they came up with this parade, presumably after a very long lunch. Perhaps they can be explicit about how they (a) came up with the list selection and (b) how they missed such stars as the Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM "A". I have no axe to grind, I'm a micro 4/3 user. Transparency must be made complete here. A failure to open up the selection criteria to scrutiny leaves DPReview with a lack of credibility.

And (finally!) as a micro 4/3 user, whither the Tamron 14-150mm F/3.-5.8 Di III? Dispenses with the need for several lenses and is well priced. M4/3 users dream, but not listed... Having tried it in the past week I feel it deserves a mention.

Point (b) taken, thankyou. Noted also that the 'curated' and thus apparently definitive list was deemed incomplete and the Sony Vario Tessar T* FE 16-35mm added later. But thanks for the reply.

On Sony a6000 Review preview (840 comments in total)

The Oly M10 looks sharper to me especially when you raise the ISO levels. And also in the corners, so maybe the Sony lens is also a bit iffy compared to whatever was on the M10.

On Olympus OM-D E-M10 Review preview (345 comments in total)
In reply to:

Theelderkeynes: Olympus have now posted the much awaited anti-shock firmware 1.1 upgrade for the OM-D E-M10 here:

http://www.olympus.co.uk/site/en/c/cameras_support/downloads/e_m10_downloads.html

This implements electronic first curtain below 1/320 sec shutter speed, thus reducing vibration, in theory, from the shutter.

Perhaps comnsumer pressure does work!

The download happens automatically once you have downloaded the Olymus updater software and connected your camera. I suggest you read the instructions carefiully. It is very straightforward. Read the instructions on updating.

On Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 III First Impressions Review preview (2962 comments in total)

Maybe its my eyes but not for the first time the 'equivalent aperture comparison chart' has alll the accessibility and user friendliness of a freeze dried parrot. Minute colour differences compounded by thin lines make it darn near impossible to interpret. Do better Dpreview, make some of the lines dots, some broken, some a mixture and/or make them thicker and don't make the colours very alike. Then we might be able to understand it a bit better. Better still let your designer loose on the problem but please sort it out! Soon....

On Olympus PEN E-P5 Review preview (499 comments in total)

It is still unclear to me whether the OM-D E-M10 or the Pen E-P2 and others so far not addressed with this fix will get or should have this type of fix. DP Review's assurances on this isssue being fixed as far as the M10 is concerned are conditioned quite rightly (in their review) by the phrase 'in our testing'. And not a thing from C.Nishino on the subject or anyone else at Olympus (see below). As an owner of both the M10 and E-P2 and a string of micro 4/3 lenses I would like to know if my faith in the system and specifically Olympus has been misplaced. Once again this loyal and long term customer waits for a positive and constructive response.

Direct link | Posted on May 15, 2014 at 16:15 UTC as 31st comment | 3 replies

Given the M10 uses the same TruePic VII processor as the M1 does this mean the update can be run on the M10 as well? Dpreview hinted in their review of the M10 that the shake problem had been dealt with. Saying:

"The good news is that we didn't find it to be prone to the image shake that can occur with the PEN E-P5."

Why? Is the M10 already running this fix on the TruPic VII or is it another reason???

Olympus needs to be clearer in its communications on this issue and respect its customer base of whom I am one.

On Pentax K-50 real-world and test scene samples article (146 comments in total)

I have to agree with atomole the images do seem to look slightly soft, unusual for Pentax. Maybe reshoot to see if its the lens, or (!) operator???

You missed the bargain of the decade - the Sigma 60mm F2.8 A very sharp very well built but nice and light portrait/short telehoto and all for £129 or say $200. It cannot bre beaten, anywhere.
