On article Ricoh GR II: What's new and what does it mean? (206 comments in total)

Not much of an upgrade but it's still a nice camera. Their next camera should be a GR 50mm 2.8. One camera for each pocket. They'd compliment each other.

On article Canon EOS Rebel T6s Review (473 comments in total)

I know someone who recently just bought a canon 700D for his girlfriend and he knew nothing about photography. He bought a canon DSLR because it's a brand he recognised and because it's a DSLR, so it must be good. Canon don't need to push the boat out with new features and better sensors because they have the brand. Having said that the 700D is still a good camera which will take excellent pictures. They have nice straight out of camera jpegs which is important to most. I also have to say that the 700d was one of the most comfortable cameras I've held. I'm sure it's the same with the 750/760D.

ChowMonkey: When can we expect the more affordable Panasonic counterpart?

Soon, they're calling it the LX1 and it will come with a grip and free auto lens cap (limited deal only). Unfortunately it comes with one year less warranty than Leica.

I would prefer a 35mm lens. However 24mp should give about 15mp at 35mm which is nearly as much as my x100t anyway. Unfortunately this is out of my budget.

What a great shot! You obviously didn't impress everyone though, you got a couple of 1.5 stars. You need to work harder next time ;)

BarnET: Normally i don;t like portraits at 35mm equiv.
Since it increases the size of the nose.
But in this particular case it actually works rather well with the low-key lighting.

Also in colour which is quiet hard when shooting low-key. Overall a very interesting shot.

I agree about 35mm and portraits usually. My aim wasn't to be flattering so I thought I could get away with it this time. You also get a feeling of closeness to the subject when using a wide focal length up close. I think that helps in this photo. Thanks for commenting.

In reply to:

Eugene232: nice camera but overpriced.
Ricoh GR and Nikon A 2- 3 times cheaper with the same IQ

I agree that it's a bit overpriced. I think the comparison to the GR and A is a little unfair though. Those cameras have been out a while, comparing it to the X100 or X100s is fairer. They also offer less, no hybrid viewfinder, one stop slower lens etc.

On article Go wide! Hands-on with Canon's 11-24mm F4 L (229 comments in total)

This lens will be perfect if you're trying to sell a tiny one bedroom flat. It will be transformed into spacious studio apartment at 11mm. 14/15mm is already stupidly wide so 11mm just seems obscene although I have no doubt some gifted photographers will be able to produce stunning photos with it. For most people though the Tamron 15-30mm which is f2.8 and comes with VR at nearly 1/3 the cost will be a much better option. It is an interesting lens from canon though, that's for sure.
