On Olympus OM-D E-M10 Review preview (327 comments in total)
In reply to:

Jogger: Nice camera, but, sensor is still too small.

"...I think it is AMAZING that we have a smaller sensor that gives more dynamic range than the fantastic APS-C sensor in the Nikon D5300...."
SEriously ?
Take a tour at DXO, for dynamic range, the d5300 show 13.9Ev, against 12.3 dor the OM10.
I mean, Oly's OMD are excellent cameras, but please, don't even try to say than a smaller sensor with equal technology have better results than a bigger one...

On Fujifilm X-T1 First Impressions Review preview (1657 comments in total)

I'm not very impressed with the XT1's sensor performances :

There is less noise, but details are blurred, the Fuji is the only camera where you can't read the paint tube's label.
and what append to red & purple tones ?

Judged by it's image quality, for me, GoPro is pretty overrated...

In reply to:

Apewithacamera: Ok how do they cut these in half?

They put the camera/lens in water (in water, you can cut glass without breaking it), and use a diamond cutting wheel.

In reply to:

D1N0: So now I am going to be a bitch and ask for a Pentax K-50 and K-3 Review because this is not a serious camera but a gadget vehicle.

Dear GaryInSoCal :
Ricoh photography branch makes profit, what about Sony, Oly, Panasonic, Samsung ?
You just don't know what you are talking about.

In reply to:

John: If this will be selling at 10k, then it will be a compelling proposition.

I don't expect a lower price than the original 645D : the new CMOS sensor must cost a arm...

On Panasonic announces 4K-capable Lumix DMC-GH4 article (118 comments in total)
In reply to:

Pete Mc: *almost* a home run. I'm disappointed that theres no slo-mo on the lower resolutions. If it could do 1080 at 120 or higher, THEN I might just switch from Canon.

Not 120fps, but 96 at 1080p :
The VFR (Variable Frame Rate) enables Full-HD video recording with slow/fast motion such as 96 fps / 4x.

Ayoh: Looks like it might do video judging by the Mic and Speaker holes visible on the left side of the body

http://dc.watch.impress.co.jp/img/dcw/docs/634/076/02.jpg

And the new zoom has built in stabilization too looking at the switches

Should be a really impressive piece of kit, and 1/2-1/3 the cost of the competition.

I don't think so, there is no Video option on the mode selector, no dedicated video button...

It should be the new DXO killer.

In reply to:

HowaboutRAW: Good it means other medium format backs will show up with CMOS sensors.

Imagine a Leica S3 that can be used at ISO 2000.

And the general idiocy by Haselblad lately goes to show what happens when finance types run a company instead of those interested in making things or providing interesting services.

A Leica S3 that can be used at 1600iso is called a Pentax 645D ;)

In reply to:

Trollshavethebestcandy: I would be more excited if it had a fixed f2.8 wide zoom lens for under $900. The lenses are expensive.

I'm not sure about that, my Tamron 17-50 cost 300$, and it's really excellent. In fact it's the perfect standard zoom for me, because of it's flare resistance, which is a huge beniefit with my style of photography.
Maybe Tamron will produce the 17-50 for the X mount ?

In reply to:

Master Yoda: Sorry but this collection of images doesn't make it for me. I see terrible shadow detail, colors are somewhat muted, they're too coolish in tone and sharpness could be better in most of them. Finally, the fact that you can order this in 120 different color combinations isn't exactly a feature Pentax should be bragging about to people who are at all semi-serious about a piece of photographic equipment. I mean come on . . .

IZO100, i've read some of your comment's history, are you for real ?
I mean, for all Pentax article, you're here to post your uninteresting thoughts about how bad Pentax is. Your wife is gone with a Pentax rep ?
B.T.W., your "gallery" speaks for itself, you just don't know what photography is.

On Have Your Say: Best DSLR / SLT of 2013 article (339 comments in total)
In reply to:

RicardoPhotos: As a professional, I simply cannot spend much time thinking about Pentax. Lens options are just not there. But I think their camera bodies are incredibly impressive. I have a colleague who uses a Pentax to shoot fashion shows. Darn fine camera. If the Pentax K3 had built-in WiFi, we'd be looking at the Canon 7D MKII. Very impressive. But as we all know, it's all about the lenses. And that's where Pentax fails miserably.

I was thinking either the sensor of the 70D or compactness of the SL1 would get my vote. Eventually, the SL1 got my vote. It's a tiny DSLR that's ALMOST pocketable. And image quality is very good. Love that little guy!

Pentax have the most complete APS-c line-up, from 12 to 250mm, you have plenty of choices (for example, they have 4 differents 50mm primes : DA LTD 50 f2.8 Macro, FA50 F1.4, DA50 F1.8, and DA* 55 f1.4...)
The lack of lenses is true if you need long focals (+300mm), but under 300, you have everything you need.

In reply to:

Couscousdelight: Seeing such good rate for the Oly 14-40 is a little disturbing for me, and this is why :
This lens is maybe excellent, but Oly didn't try to control distortion anymore, they just remove it within the camera with a lens profile and post processiong, and frankly, this is odd.
Other brands didn't correct distortion with a lens profile and post-porcess, but with a better otical formula...

I agree, but i don't like that "post-processing philosophy".
