That man, speaking on behalf of.., has a task to fulfill. That, I know. My wishes? Choice, as in variety. Samsung cams operate like a song, I agree! That man is very capable, also. Obviously. Speaking on behalf. At DPReview. To every single one.

That man is very much wishing for DSLRs to vanish entirely from the face of Earth, obviously not having anything to sell in that camp...

On Not dead yet: Sony announces three A-mount lenses article (123 comments in total)

The title is quite sarcastic: "Not Dead Yet"!? Could say that to Nikon and Canon first... Miss my A700, would buy another one anytime if found in store brand new!

(Speaking from experience, from Alpha line upward...) Sony's manufacturing reliability has been abysmally bad in photo gear, whereas its technological accomplishments have been rather impressive on all fronts. I guess that the whole point of this joint venture Hasselblad-Sony was to bring promising products much closer to perfection!

In reply to:

plainwhite: I might have been tempted to purchase the Typ 113 if it had a built in VF and full manual control of the ISO and aperture setting at f/1.7. But alas, there are to many compromises for $3k in my opinion.

Just because a person has money, doesn't mean he shouldn't also have some common sense.

my 2¢
;-)

Opt for Type 109...

I enjoyed (and trusted) this farmed-out review format, DPReview; please, keep it that way!

But will it perform better than the rest of the X family with M-Mount lenses?

My guess: it will be snow white, waterproof plastic, with a huge black pirate Canon flag on it!

On Olympus OM-D E-M1 Review preview (2067 comments in total)

People,

Careful if you compare images from the three Olympus: DPReview opted to use the mZuiko 45mm on the E-M1 & E-P5, but the (better) Zuiko 50mm f/2 on the E-M5... As a result, I deem that this test - for my own purpose of deciphering any sort of IQ difference btw the three said models - isn't as reliable as I had hoped! Just be careful not to come to believe that the E-M5 is significantly better than the new E-M1; just arm the E-M1 with the 50mm or the 12-60mm, and let the real show begin...

Sincerely,

Marathonianbull

The colors of the D7100 seem punchier, aren't they?

Direct link | Posted on Apr 6, 2013 at 02:50 UTC as 17th comment

Fascinating cameras indeed! My next Olympus sidekick is either the upcoming X100s, the Leica X2, or one of these brilliant Sigma DP Merill... Looking at IQ alone, that would be an easy choice (FOVEON X3 ALL THE WAY!)

In reply to:

Craig from Nevada: The E-5 (pictured above) has many faults, but it is so well built.

I love mine.

The least i can say is that the well-built, highly fluid E-5 and its magical, sharp, colorful 12-60mm (or most other Zuiko 4/3) are MUCH MORE satisfying in real use than my previous, as expensive Sony A700 & Zeiss 16-80mm combo. Colors, sharpness, brightness, WB, metering, AF speed, usability, sturdiness, EVERYTHING's BETTER. And the A700 is known an NIkon D300's equal, btw... So I guess I'm somewhat lucky to be 'in the know'!!!

In reply to:

Shashinkaman: Sorry to drop a bomb like this, being a newbie and all, but I can here by confirm (live in Japan, and am 'very well' connected to Olympus - but am not allowed to "talk to the press") that there won't be anything like the e-5 in the future ever again...
So Don't hold your breath, don't keep hoping and dreaming, it is time to move on or, better, do your Zuiko lenses proud and go out and shoot pictures with your current e-5 (which, after all, is still a very nice and capable little piece of equipement, if I may say so...)
The Olympus die has been cast, and e-7 wasn't in the stars I'm afraid...

Hey, Here in Kanagawa-ken I was told the opposite by an equally informed Olympus manager...
