On Nikon 1 V3 stock shortage prompts official apology article (289 comments in total)

They must have manufactured 10 and had demand for 12.

On Samsung Galaxy S5 camera review post (83 comments in total)
In reply to:

Ken Sky: Why is the review framed as " the best Android phone"? Doesn't the reviewer know that the smartphone market is dominated by the Apple iPhone? Surely the comparison should be against the 5s. I recognize the 6 will appear in the not too distant future but as of July 2014 this phone appears to be the best on the market.
P.S. I use an iPhone 5.

Typical Android drones. You think you're too smart to be fooled by Apple's marketing.
Ask your phones manufactures and OS maker where they get their inspiration.

So they are saying this sensor will hide all the flaws in the mostly less than stellar Sony lenses.

There is nothing special about any of the Schneider lenses made for the Phase mount. The Hassy H lenses are superior in every way.
While Leica and Zeiss are the Porsche and Mercedes of the optics world, Schneider is VW.

On DxOMark recommends best lenses for the Nikon D800E article (72 comments in total)

DXO is about useful for measuring optics as a robot is for making love matches for humans. Any device that measures a Tamron 24-70 and 70-200 superior to Canon 24-70L II and 70-200L II is to be disregarded.

On A travel-sized large-format 4x5 camera? article (219 comments in total)

I have a Littman 45 Single but haven't used it for two years. Need to break out some Fuji quickloads and Polaroid Type 55's and go out shooting.

In reply to:

Snowbird_UT: When are they gonna drop the mirror. Of all the systems that could benefit of going mirrorless I would think this one wins hands down. They could make adapters for all those legacy lenses easily enough.

No thanks! Have a look at a medium format viewfinder and every EVF out there will look a like a peep hole after a storm.

A better version of the D4S has been out a while, it's a 1DX. No "S" needed at the end of the X.

You guys need to put this camera in capable hands to get a good impression. These snaps make the camera look bad.

Ridicules size!

My 50L is not as sharp as my 85L wide open but has creamy bokeh and beautiful colors. This lens has similar bokeh but as not sharp.

Price proof would have been more useful than water proof.

The three people that shoot Sony DSLR's worldwide are all here complaining about bias about their cameras LOL

Well I hope this new 23mm is better optically than the one on the X100/S. The 22mm from the EOS M is significantly sharper wide open in close and midrange than the Fuji.
I'm still holding out for the expected X2 Pro.
