Astrotripper: "We also want to add some more reasonably-priced lenses for entry-level users, similar to the 45mm F1.8 - we’re looking into this now. "

Yeah, that'd be nice, but I wonder if it's not too late for that. MFT has already earned a reputation for being on the expensive side, at least in some regions. Excluding body caps, 45/1.8 and 17/2.8 are the only affordable primes here. From zoom lenses, 40-150 is the only good value proposition. All other lenses are either expensive (some rightly so) or just ridiculously overpriced.

And there's still no middle ground zoom in MFT. You either stay with the kit lens, or have to pay serious money for large and heavy f/2.8 PRO zoom. I still can't understand why we don't have a f/2.8-4.0 zoom.

I completely agree a 24-120 2.8-4/ f4-4 is very much so needed. As are a line of good optical f2-4 primes. 12 f4, 17 f2.8 mk2, 50 f4 macro, 75 2.8

On Aloha! We go shooting with Samsung's new NX500 article (186 comments in total)
In reply to:

RichRMA: Great sensor, lousy camera. No EVF, no sale these days, might as well use a crummy iPhone.

Really? You think the iPhone has anything on this camera? Saying that is just stupid. The iPhone has no zoom and even with the actually very good 16-50 kit would destroy an iPhone. In every way.

On Adorama launches Flashpoint Ring Li-On 400ws ringflash article (56 comments in total)
In reply to:

Digitalis32: I'm surprised about the inclusion of a Li-ion battery - most flash units use alternative battery types that aren't so inclined to have issues with heat. Though I wouldn't be surprised when someone uses this at 7FPS and complains that the battery melted.

It's recycle time isn't that fast....

On Olympus offers Stylus SH-2 with Raw support article (46 comments in total)
In reply to:

fastlass: Would love to see a comparison vs iPhone/S5(6).

This would kill the IPhone 6 or 6 plus. Crop the iPhone to 600 mm and see how it looks. Also the iPhone doesn't shoot raw.

On Fujifilm announces X-A2 with selfie-friendly LCD article (132 comments in total)

This is likely the best cheap low light camera you can buy (if the AF is up to the task.). Usable at every iso if the Xa-1 is anything to go by.

Wish they would release an and xe model with a Bayer sensor and pdaf.

On Fujifilm releases XQ2 premium compact article (60 comments in total)

My friend has an XQ-1 and the AF is insanely fast the pdaf is no joke. Faster vs any pocket cam I've ever used (RX100 mk1-3, xz1&2, lx7, g7x, S100-120.) When the XQ-1's price plumets I'll will get one now that this was announced.

On Entry-Level Mirrorless Camera Roundup (2014) article (144 comments in total)
In reply to:

marc petzold: Virtually, besides the X-M1 vs X-A1, the only difference is, that the A1 is way cheaper, but build into the same package (body) and uses a ordinary Bayer Sensor, not X-Trans...but that comes in handy especially when shooting landscapes and foliage, the X-Trans Sensors don't look too good into that way for my eyes, apart that, they're very fine, indeed.

But i must say that i would mention, the X-A1 and X-M1, both do have also a plasticky feeling like the A3000, and being far away from for instance a X-E1(2) or X100-alike Body, which are made out of alu magalloy, and not plastic.

The xa1 has probably the best low light sensor in any crop camera.

ohmydentist: I don't get the extreme price, because Lik could print infinite number of copies. Did the photog agree to throw away the image file?

I agree with this. I'm guessing he sold the copy rights of the photograph as well.

In reply to:

audiobomber: There's an error in the a6000 page. It says:
◾24MP APS-C sensor is one of the best in this class

It should say:
◾24MP APS-C sensor is the best in this class

Is it better then the 5100??

On Richard Franiec offers Canon PowerShot G7 X custom grip article (110 comments in total)
In reply to:

ThatCamFan: I do not trust a piece of tape to not fall off with time breaking the camera.

Well I bought my XZ-1 4 years ago and I've had my grip on it the entire time and it's still immovable. Once you put that grip on. It's not coming off unless you want it to. Unless you....probably expose it to very high heat. That grip isn't going anywhere.

On Olympus Stylus 1s camera announced in Japan article (94 comments in total)
In reply to:

ShatteredSky: XZ-3 please (as in LX100 competitor)! LX100 size, 1 inch sensor, Zuiko-quality lens (like XZ-2), 24-120mm (1.8-2.8), tilt- and touchscreen. Should be possible, no?

I would buy it RIGHT NOW.

tecnoworld: The best part of this camera is the exp compensation wheel. Something that more serious cameras are lacking.

I'd rather it be a custom dial personally...then you could have ex comp , A, or SS.

On SanDisk unveils 512GB Extreme Pro card article (162 comments in total)
In reply to:

mpgxsvcd: Here is 1/2 the capacity for 1/8 the price. You don't need 512 GB right now. Even the best 4k written to SD cards is only 100 mb/sec. 256 GB would be plenty. Especially when you could just buy 8 of them for about the price of the 512 GB card.

Markol: I sometimes see people using tablets for taking photos, so I guess that's the connection to this article being posted on the dpr site. Otherwise I would think that it's slowly turning into a tech-blog.

I see it all to often.

In reply to:

DGates: All those sample pics and no low-light images. That has been the Achilles Heel of the Lumix line. But seeing they used the GH4's sensor in this, it would've been nice to see some pics to compare this cam with my FZ200.

He meant processor probably
