On Canon EOS 7D Mark II First Impressions Review preview (1218 comments in total)

This is an impressive camera. AF, fps, buffer depth plus the extended reach for wildlife and bird photography. I will get it when its price has come down a little bit.

The GH4 is the better handling and faster camera but the images from the Sony really look impressive. High ISO is cleaner than on my Canon 6D and a lot cleaner than on my Fuji X Pro-1.

If Sony would release a high quality 2.8/20 and 2/35 I would be very tempted.

It seems that even monkeys don't want a Windows phone.

I guess this is not the big thing from Canon we are all waiting for.

On Fujifilm updates X-mount lens roadmap to end of 2015 article (171 comments in total)

Fuji makes great lenses my only wish is that they focus more on small lenses.

The main reason to use my XP1 instead of my FF Canon is size and weight. Beside the first primes most newer lenses are rather big and heavy. The 1.4/23 is borderline, the fantastic 1.2/56 already too heavy for my taste. The f2.8 zooms will be huge.

You don't have to be mad to buy this instead of a Sony A6000 plus Zeiss Zoom or the Fuji X-T1 kit but it helps.

Joachim Gerstl: No thank you for posting these. Now I know it makes no sense to produce low resolution sensors like 12MP on full frame anymore.

I have the 6D and I'm happy with it. I'm aware that D4 and 1DX are better in high ISO. I was surprised that Sony did not manage to do better with 12MP today. It's almost 10 years that the 5D came out. Of course the A7S is a lot better at high ISO but it should still be a lot better. The pixels are almost 2 times bigger than in the 5DmkIII which also came out a couple of years ago.

On Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 III First Impressions Review preview (2970 comments in total)

Faster lens with better range, built in EVF, flip screen. Looks like a very complete package now. Still pricey but better value than its predecessors.
I guess there will be a lot of second hand RX100/RX100II available soon.

On Canon announces 16-35mm F4L and 10-18mm F4.5-5.6 lenses article (367 comments in total)

I'm very happy to see this lens. I hope it's better than the 17-40L. I was close to buy the 2.8/16-35L but now I will get this instead.

Peter Bendheim: I wonder if the Apple design guru Jony Ive had a hand in this design - after all he designed the once off auction Leica recently out of aluminium - and this looks Apple-ish...Aluminium is a very easily scratched and dented metal, though. At that price, can't be too reckless unless you are rich and don't care.

If Jonathan Ive would have been involved it wouldn't look like an ordinary Sony NEX 3. This is an uninspiring design and the "designer" should be ashamed. Not everything that is milled out of a block of aluminum is a superb product.

Leica goes Hasselblad.

Looks like an overpriced NEX 3 to me. But I guess I'm just ignorant.

They did it again. 3 cameras but only 3 lenses. I hope Sony finds a good lens maker to help them. A system camera without a system is pointless no matter how good the cameras are.

So that's how you are supposed to hold it. Now it makes perfect sense.

On CP+ 2014: Hands-on with Sony a6000 article (102 comments in total)

That's one big mirror less camera! But I think it's due to the fact the lady holding it has extremely small hands. The should ask my colleague from the Lebanon to hold it. He could let a Canon 1DX look small.

On Sony a6000 First Impressions Review preview (899 comments in total)

Maybe it looks boring for some but I prefer that over the new Sigmas. I like to be able to hold a camera.
The AF thing has become a little annoying. Another fastest autofocus.

The first camera designed for extraterrestrials. Very ambitious Sigma! Maybe Sigma wants to attract Hasselblad?

It seems to work with mobile phones too: Vetru, Continental, ...
You never heard of these brands?

If Hasselblad continues this crazy "pimp my Sony" thing nobody will remember them either in a couple of years from now.

The camera looks very nice but AF seems to be the same as in the X-E2.
