mauijohn: The japanese plan after they occupied the Philippines is to mine all the natural resources of the entire island of the Philipines such as copper, gold, timber, iron etc. They will use the people of the Philippines to work manually young and old and they just killed those too weak to work. Japan has a very low on those natural resources on their land. I will called this big time terrorism that will look Boko Haram and alquida combined like a chiken.

Jay, "I told I have a masters degree since someone told I am a moron and have brain." - the fact that you think that having a master's degree and being a moron is mutually exclusive is further proof that you are a moron.

jaykumarr: Ok.. whites are supreme race... They are kindest, but unfortunately had to drop few bombs. you know, whites will do anything to save this world..

could you please explain, Why America sent the biggest war ship then 'USS Enterprise' to nuke India in December 11, 1971 supporting Islamic Republic of Pakistan? Was India Terrorizing US by attacking pearl harbor?
Another example of American pride :

Nobody is talking about at supreme race, but ou. You seriously need to relax. All countries fought wars. And if US is so horrible - why did you come here? A bit of hypocrisy looks like.

jaykumarr, yea, US is so horrible! That's why people of all colors (including Indians) are trying to come here. And yea, being of a lower caste in India is awesome, I am sure. You can peddle that nonsense elsewhere.

Ah, world... A second ago it was universe... As for "You do" - I did? When was this? Cut and paste please? Do you really want to talk about racism in US given the caste system in India?

Johannes Zander: Act of Genocide!
Oh now, since it was the US it must be an humanitarian act of libaration in the name of freedom.

Misha, not very bright of you to compare an action of one man with the official policy of the nazi regime. Not very bright. Oh, and I am Jewish, too. So let's not play that card.

In reply to:

dccdp: Just a few facts, for the biased out there. Of course, it may not say much, but still it's an hint on how not-so-different Europeans are.

Unemployment statistics (November 2013)
http://epp.eurostat.ec.europa.eu/statistics_explained/index.php/Unemployment_statistics

Germany 5.2 %
Czech Republic 6.9%
Netherlands 6.9 %
Romania 7.3%
UK 7.4%
Hungary 9.9% (can we see some old factories there, please? ;-) )
Poland 10.2%
France 10.8%
Ireland 12.3 %
Italy 12.7%
...

And yes, this is a photography forum. Because photography is traditionally one of the best tools for manipulating the masses. We have learned it the hard way here in Eastern Europe, during the unfair punishment some nations were blessed with after WWII (communism). Reality is easily tweaked, and it'd better serve as a warning for our Western friends. Nobody is immune.

Apples and oranges. Please compare the salary of an employed person in the east with the welfare checks of an unemployed person in the west.

This whole conversation is laughable. People vote with their feet. Which way are they going?

Ben O Connor: As a Romanian house wife said to me back in 2004;

When it was communist, We had evertyhing but no freedom. Nowadays we have freedom but nothing else.

Hopefully things has been changed for Romania & Romanians in the meantime....

Rosin, did you grow up in the USSR or the Soviet Block? Where is your fantasy coming from?

Black Box: Yet another Eastern European "artist" trying to exploit the "horrors of communism" theme to make a buck in America. And don't we all know how Americans LOVE anything "post-communism". "The rest of the world" simply MUST be grim and poor and unhappy!

PS If you want to join the Zbigniew Brzezinski team of haters, please visit Robert Koch Gallery for more information.

I suppose, as somebody who was born in the USSR and have been to that region very recently I should not believe my lying eyes (or my memories) and instead rely on your rhetoric, which is backed up by..?

dccdp: Oh, well. Yet another boring photographer trying to exploit stupid cliches... Yes, Eastern Europe is awful, people there still live in trees, eat bananas, and have never heard of Lego and TVs. As oposed to Westerners, who are all exceptionally cool, intelligent and have never ever encountered old towns, homeless people or abandoned factories.

An advice for those who still have this old propaganda-induced image about those "lesser countries". Just visit them, and you will see that they are perfectly normal, with rich European traditions, populated by normal people living in clean towns and working probably harder than most citizens of the old continent.

Wake up, forget your (bordering racist) preconceptions and be smart. :)

I was born in the USSR and have been to Kiev every year for the past five years. You obviously don't know what you are talking about. I highly doubt you have been to any of these poor countries and if you have - you probably stuck to the city center of the capital.

thx1138: Lot of people are going to be disappointed when they see there results. They think a 36MP sensor sans AA filter will magically give them tack sharp results, yet fail to realise how such a camera will demand better technique, good glass and often a tripod to truly realise the potential. This thing will be brutal for showing up even the slightest motion blur. For landscape hands down you'll want a tripod, no more being lazy. Hand held you'll want faster shutter speeds or stick to IS lenses. I guess if you are going to be down sampling that'll help, but then you might as well get the A7.

Of the several full sized shots I looked at, none were tack sharp (yes I do realise these are huge images), and wouldn't be any better than say a D600/6D/5DIII if resized, for per pixel sharpness. I think for this type of happy snap walkabout in general you won't get full value of the 36MP. Of course their be plenty of exceptions and some people have steadier hands and some will have IS lenses.

That could be said about *any* camera.

Paul looking for the best picture: I´m so disappointed looking at these pictures. I really expect a better job from dpreview.com . I suscribe today because i'm a huge fan from your Web Page and that i have saw better real world sample here. By example i have appreciate a lot the one about the Sony RX1 R with so nice pictures, peoples on the pictures were looking so happy during their week end camp, and photos were so outstanding that i was thinking: i should have this camara. But this Sony A7r real world sample is the result of an uninspired photograph, and it is not giving me the same feeling. Photography is a pleasure, above all things, a pleasure to take and a pleasure to see. I hope you will publish my comment. Thank you.

You should totally ask for your money back!

photo nuts: Weighs 813g and costs US$1300?

No thanks, Sony.

2.8 constant across the range + 1" sensor. Why would it weigh less?

I don't understand the appeal of a system built around a 1/1.7 sensor. As was pointed out by others, one can buy a Sony Nex-3n for the same $.

Joe Ogiba: I wonder if Sony will come out with the rumored RX10 APS-C fixed lens version between the 1" RX100 and full frame RX1.

Still... It would make more sense for Sony to release a higher quality pancake lense than a brand new fixed asp-c camera altogether...

photoholiko: I'm I wrong or is the price $1100 for the A plus $450 for a OVF plus $195 for a filter adapter? that totals $1745, one can buy a heck of lot of camera for that kind of money.

One can buy a Sony NEX-3N + 2.8 pancake for way less!

What's the point? Just get a Nex body with a 2.8 pancake.

In reply to:

Blake Willis: What folks outside the firearms industry don't realize is that most firearms marketing is B.S. Just like most camera marketing is B.S., and most food marketing, and pretty much any other kind of marketing material you're bombarded with on a daily basis.

The difference is that firearms can be used to kill things (more easily than most other consumer goods) and so the marketing B.S. often revolves around that (as opposed to 200mph cars, beer that will get you laid, fresh food at fast food chain restaurants, etc). The vast majority of these scopes will *never* be used on any game more "dangerous" than deer or elk (or possibly coyotes). The spin is simply to get folks to think that their scope was designed for hunting the "big 5" and thus somehow must be better for hunting whitetail deer.

If you want to be an animal activist, please go after ivory poachers, dog fighters, etc. and leave the responsible hunting community alone.

The wolf population has decreased as large urban centers grew? I am shocked! Shocked I tell you! How does that compare to the situation in Europe? No doubt the wolf population has remained the same over the past 5 centuries or so?
