RStyga: The design is not as bad as K-S1's but it is, still, a "K-S design"... ugly (especially top view and button design at the back).

I did not state that non-black cameras are badly designed, calm down. I was referring to the design, the shape, form and texture, not the colour.

RStyga: Hopefully the WR design will prevent the duo-cam design from sucking dust. The lens is, however, very dark... F4-5.6... a F2.8-4 would be much better even if it would make the lens' diameter larger.

@stray.. you're being rude & stupid. Have you seen how small the full-frame Sigma AF 28-70mm F2.8-4 DG is?

Diffraction relates to lens aperture and sensor size, not sensor resolution.

RStyga: You call that "news"? I call that "nerve". We'll see IN A YEAR what was this borderline-announcement. Pentax has practically lost the FF train; it has taken them FOREVER and it's better to skip it altogether and jump on the DSLM one.

No, you're not. I'm a forum nazi. :-)

I was shooting with Pentax for years (and still own several K lenses) but not anymore although I still support some models like K10D and K-01. I have every right to comment the way I did.

On Canon's Q4 earnings report shows camera sales are down article (315 comments in total)

Canon is doing OK in the FF DSLR segment, barely OK in the enthusiasts APS-C DSLR market, not so well in the entry DSLR segment and downright poor in the DSLM market. I believe their extensive lens base is not helping them decide to invest more on a new DSLM mount and system.

On Budget X: Hands-on with Fujifilm's new X-A2 article (159 comments in total)
In reply to:

dpr4bb: Lots of complaints here about the fact that the X-A2 does not use an X-Trans sensor, just like X-A1 didn't. Must be a big drawback, obviously...

Be that as it may, how come the X-A1 photos from DPR's new studio comparison scene look so good, JPEG or RAW, compared to the other Fuji cameras that do use the X-Trans sensor?

XA-1 has a VERY good sensor. Xtrans sensor, on the other hand, may be less noisy but has issues with acuity and artifacts.

On Hands-on with Nikon's new D5500 article (286 comments in total)

Does it come with oil satchels or the technology to enable the sensor to produce the unique flare effect?

Just joking, happy new year...

On Fujifilm announces XF 16-55mm F2.8 R LM WR lens article (295 comments in total)

To big, too heavy, too expensive. What's so DSLM about it? Nothing. A well-built lens with expected high IQ, it seems, but not a DSLM lens.

On Leica M9 users report sensor corrosion issue article (379 comments in total)
In reply to:

uhoh07: Also, why has the M9, MM or 240 have never, as far as I can tell, received a full review on this site? I did see an M8 review, and M9 preview, and a four page romp "shooting with the M9-P."

Love it or hate them, these are benchmark digital systems and can be easily rented, one has to wonder why such short shrift at DP?

Preferably such review would be done with the help of a working Leica pro, to avoid the all to common DP foible of "I can't get used to where they put such and such button".

The Leica takes practice to use effectively. I bought the M9 solely for the results with RF wide glass, and at first found the focus and framing method difficult real world. But 11 months later I far prefer the M9 to frame and focus over my A7 even at high speed.

Most hysterical is the DXO rating of the M9 sensor, which simply proves their numbers measure values which are irrelevant to many of us, and certainly have nothing at all to do with how sharp an image will be with a lens attached.

Don't expect much from blind followers of a brand.

Comparing any Sony A7 series sensor output with M9 is a good joke. But it is only that, a joke. I don't imply that the aged M9 sensor is for the bin, on the contrary, but it is inferior to any current FF sensor, clearly. If you also consider the price difference between camera bodies and lenses it becomes a joke...

I would really like to see the output from a Sony A7 and a M9/M-E using the same lens (although some peripheral IQ degradation is to be expected on the A7 due to adapter use, i.e., planarity issues).

Fujfilm's image as a DSLM maker improves constantly and their sales keeps increasing; what are you talking about?
