On article Design, looks and desire: Olympus does it again (396 comments in total)

It really is a gorgeous camera. If I weren't "trapped" already in APS-C and FF. systems, I'd probably buy it.

On article Sony Alpha 7R II Review (2125 comments in total)

Nice review.
To put things into perspective, it's a $3,200 camera, so not that many people will be able to afford it before the price drops.

On article What's missing? Ming Thein on the state of mirrorless (751 comments in total)

What's missing is some knowledge and awareness on the author's part of Fuji cameras.
How can anyone write a full piece on today's mirrorless cameras with just a passing mention of Fuji? It's a glaring omission, in my view.

Ironically, DPR chose to illustrate this article with a photo of a Fuji camera.

On article Readers' Showcase: Philip Ewing (45 comments in total)

There's one or two that don't quite work for me (No. 2 in particular), but I think this is fantastic work.
I love the compositions, the light, and the desolate feeling conveyed by the images.

Looking great, Pentax!

As long as you make sure the AF is up to Canikon standards...

KAllen: Having never owned a Leica, I can't but help noticing when it comes to Leica products the main thing people can't wait to latch onto is price.
We know Leica are expensive, get over it.
If someone has the money to buy Leica gear it probably means they are not stupid.
Also I find expensive products have a habit of keeping their performance for a long long time, cheaper alternative compete when new, then often drop off with use.
As a camera this looks to be a pretty decent offering and actually does a very good job, in fact for this type of camera there isn't really anything to compare it with. I suspect by the time the mkII arrives it will be extremely good. Well done Leica.

"If someone has the money to buy Leica gear it probably means they are not stupid."

How do you know that?
A lot of people with that kind of money inherited it from their family.

Pandimonium: Marc Newson strikes again? or did the K-01 look better.

Yes, it made me think of the K-01 too. Horrendous.

"Both are good examples of our issues with the control system as a whole - the first time you pick up the SL out of the box you'll likely spend some time figuring out which unlabeled button does what."

Or, here's something revolutionary, you'll have at least a quick look at the manual. Which in this case would be doubly warranted, given the lack of button markings.

The specs look good, but that body is huge and oh so fugly. Not that I'll ever be able to buy one at that price, anyway.

Just when we thought we'd be free from first impressions previews of reviews of Sony products for a little while...

I mean, what are the other manufactures doing???

Kudos to Sony, anyway!

Reinhard136: Should farm out the camera body design to Sony too.

Why?
There's nothing particularly attractive or engaging about the body design of either RX100 models.

WTF Adobe?

You're including the dehaze tool in the FREE mobile apps, while stand-alone LR6 owners are shafted and cannot get it?

In reply to:

TORN: No, haze removal is NOT part of Lightroom, it is part of Lightroom CC only because Adobe makes all users of the stand alone version of Lightroom second class users only. Yeah, Adobe give it straight to our face that even Elements users range aboube us cloud-denyers. No strategy to make friends.

@The Squire: it irks me too, but, to be fair, they did say it.

In reply to:

d2f: Here is my wishlist:
Programmable navigation menu and at least 3 custom control buttons.
No video.
Back lighted controls.
Daylight viewable OLED touch screen that can turn towards the front.
4 stop camera body image stabilization that adapts to the lens mounted.
Intelligent metering with face recognition and accurate white balancing.
Interchangeable focusing screens to facilitate manual focusing.
WiFi and wireless remote control using smartphone.
600 exposure battery.
Dual SD slots.
Dual finder, electronic & optical, the best of both worlds.
Weather sealed.
Low vibration/noise shutter with long life.
Hyperfocal focus position default when auto focus cannot acquire subject when shutter is released.
Threaded PC connector and hot shoe.
Loss less Raw and other raw storage options.
New type of sensor technology that renders current sensor technology obsolete.
Lightweight and small.
Comfortable hand grip with shutter release located on it.
Through the lens IR focus assist.
Len micro adjust.

"No video".

Terrific idea.
Let's make a niche product in a niche market even more niche. By removing a feature that all of its competitors in the same price bracket are offering.
Yep, good thinking... if you want Pentax to sink, that is.

luigibozi: Zeiss waited and waited, then they discontinued ZK.
Isn't FF a little bit late for Pentax? I know that pentaxians waited for a FF before Sony's A7 or even RX.

Seems kind of late, yes. It is for me, anyway. Pentax could have had my money three years ago. Others will feel otherwise, I'm sure.

On article Fujifilm X100T successor rumored to feature new lens (326 comments in total)

The main things Fuji should be fixing are AF speed, sensor size/res, and video capabilities.
The lens on the X100 would be far down in my list of things to change/improve, but let's see what they come up with

Direct link | Posted on Aug 27, 2015 at 18:54 UTC as 35th comment

Doesn't the 6D center AF point not focus at -3EV too? It might have been a more adequate comparison.

BeaverTerror: There's a YouTube video of someone uploading the same file 1000 (!) times. Not only did that take much more effort than this particular example, the result is also much more interesting.

That's what I find interesting. In this case it takes barely a dozen times for the degradation to be quite significant.
