On article Retro through-and-through: Fujifilm X-Pro2 Review (2473 comments in total)
In reply to:

Gazeomon: What I don't get is the omission of an articulated screen on this type of camera at this price point. I think it's otherwise a good camera (although not really great or outstanding) but not being able to easily shoot from the hip or at difficult angles would be a deal breaker for me. Luckily there is a lot of choice out there.

I second that.

DPR:
In the spec comparison, you omitted the feature 'weather-sealing', why? Don't you think it's important?

RStyga: What a sorry excuse of an update from Sony. As other members indicated, ALL A7 series cameras should have an uncompressed RAW option. Sony, wake up!

Yes, I'm pretty certain. Do you have reasons to think otherwise?

greypixelz: lame sony lame

do better next time: _listen_ to yr customers!

Who in their right mind would accuse them of releasing unfinished products?? It's called "improvement", Richard, and "respect for the customer". A FW update always act positively for the company. I don't think any of Ricoh GR's numerous FW updates, for instance, were at any time seen as an indication of 'unfinished product'.

On article On assignment: the Leica Q at a Portland wedding (212 comments in total)

The photos are color-oversaturated and harsh; was this intentional? I understand it's a matter of style, but they look dark, harsh and gloomy; not exactly the stuff of weddings. I would not buy the Q based on these photos.

On article CP+ 2016: Hands-on with new Sigma SD cameras and lenses (308 comments in total)

"We're hoping that the slow, hesitant AF that we experienced is a symptom of these early, pre-production cameras [...]"
I'm afraid it won't be a symptom but a characteristic. At least (and that is very important) by using a CDAF/sensor-based PDAF there will be no more AF accuracy issues that all SD DSLRs were plagued by.

I wish they could make this a F2.8-4 and without much difference in volume. :-)

Good news, undoubtedly; however, it would be wiser to release these as purely DSLM cameras without the DSLR adapter embedded in the body but offered as an add-on conventional adapter (included, of course, in the box). As they are released, now, are similar to the Pentax K-01: not DSLR, not entirely DSLM. Using *exclusively* DSLR lenses on a DSLM body is not a good idea. IF (big IF) they decide to design and release a new DSLM mount in the future, these cameras would become obsolete.

RStyga: Just keep in mind an alternative reality based on news that certain photojournalists/videographers where caught paying refugees who had just reach the shores of Greece to enter momentarily back into the water and come out again in order to take dramatic shots/videos of them. We live in a "wonderful" world...

I'm not talking about the Hungarian woman... What's wrong with your IQ, dropped suddenly? News channels broadcast news, where do YOU get informed about the situation in the world? Newspapers, news channels, Internet etc. Unless you travel the world and watch it first hand... Genius..

It was on mainstream Greek news, no conspiracy channels. You don't have to believe me and I don't care whether you believe it or not.

On article Worth the wait? A look inside the Pentax K-1 (650 comments in total)
In reply to:

Klaus Weber: So, now I'm sitting here with my EOS 5DMkII, and a lot of Canon glass. Still waiting for the successor to come.

And now I see this thing here, and it sounds... just what I've been looking for! Of course, still have to wait for deeper checks, but - wow!

*sigh* what to do with all my Canon glass...? :(

@ Clint Dunn - They don't work as good but, still, very good. There's nothing like the native camera. If you are a Canon user and not relying heavily on your photography to make a living then, sure, switching to Sony would be smooth, otherwise it's a bit risky expecting all EF lenses to perform the same no matter how great (and it is great) the latest EF adapter is.

Why not upgrading to 5D III for now?

Well done, Pentax! A price that kills, as usual, for a body loaded with meaningful and powerful features. If only you could release it 2-3 years ago it would have been a smashing hit; now, let's hope it will be a sufficient seller to keep your company competitive and in profit. Best of luck, we all love you, Pentax. :-) Now, please release a K-02 to match and don't change it's design!! :-)

That's more like it, DPR; unlike ridiculous straps by mediocre photographers, this is news!

Nice to hold, perhaps; nice to look at, doubtful.

Mamiya 645AFD IIIl, for example, was beautifully designed:
