On Canon EOS-M: hands-on preview of Canon's first mirrorless EOS news story (1229 comments in total)
In reply to:

gl2k: Yoo funny.

How come that Nikon and Canon make the very worst mirrorless cams ?
Are they soooo afraid of loosing DSLR market share ?
Obviously.

As a D700 owner, I'm quite disappointed with the Nikon 1 What a DC sensor! Now it comes the Canon mirrorless with aps-c sensor. We've no idea how good (or bad) it would perform, but at least sensor size does matter!

Might be it's an almost 'must buy' for Canon DSLR fans with a bunch of glasses.

Amazing 25-600 with constant F2.8. Anyway, I'm using the FZ-35 :)

Richt2000: G5? This reads like a G3.1 or G3n.

So far I see no progress from Panasonic or Canon of late.
Nikon, Olympus, Sony and Fuji meanwhile are releasing genuine new models...

Recently when I was checking the G3 then a Pana staff told me the new model is coming, just wait. I would agree that the G5 is just a minor upgrade of the G3 but that's good enough. What is even better, the G3's kit lens is the old 14-42 while this new model has the option to get the 14-42 X.

Regarding GX1 and G5, in terms of IQ (only), which one is better ?

RoccoGalatioto: Nikon should be ashamed of themselves for even considering a plastic mount.
Ridiculous.

Plastic mount ... no way !

JakeB: I really can't stand variable maximum aperture zooms.

You never quite know where you are in the heat of a shoot when you put the aperture on maximum and zoom -- moving from 3.5 to 4.5 can critically alter the shutter speed to one too slow for handheld, even with VR, or one that can't freeze motion.

I'd prefer a straight f4 lens.

Luckily I own Nikon's superb 24-70 f2.8 so all this is moot for me.

That's why I use the 16-35 F4.

3systermuser: well, the 24-120f4VR was a bad lens , it was not as sharp as I expected it to be and it was huge , it was not very well built.
so, I just sold it after using it for a few weeks in 2010.

the 24-70 is a good lens but it is also heavy and bulky , and more importantly it lacks the VR2 , so I still have it but seldom use it now.
I think this AFS24-85VR is a good lens for 580USD and it is so light and small , also this really confimed that the rumored the D600 is for real.
any way, when we need really good lenses for landscape ,studio and as such , we still need a set of Zeiss or expensive f1.4G Nikkors, so I think this is a compromised optics but it can be a great walk around light lens for the D800E.

The 24-70 is crazy heavy and bulky. Absolutely not my cup of tea.

rondhamalam: what?
don't we have 24-120mm already?

The 24-120 is no good (rather low price performance ratio)

I love it! This will be my D700 kit lens!

Nikon should release one, but just to make sure they're releasing the FX version.

Well that's simple. N fanboys could upgrade to D800 while C fanboys may consider 5DMark3, problem solved, case closed.

Boris F: GH3 is coming closer!
Is it prelude for it?

i think so

Direct link | Posted on May 21, 2012 at 09:31 UTC

The spec and body build are good. But if the rumoured price (€1100) is true, it's way overpriced for a M4/3 lens.

Anyway, I expect the focus ring is merely for manual focus override and it will not rotate during AF.

Last but not least, there is no distance scale, pity.

Is it true to say, only V-LUX and D-LUX series are made by Panasonic, all other models are made by Leica in Germany?

teekemann2008: Been using the D800 for some time now, in various conditions. As a fulltime Pro Nikon Shooter and teacher in digital techniques for some 15 years on pro-level, I would like to comment on some of the posts seen here. First, kudos for dpreview, for their unbiased support on reviewing camera's in a very consistent way. About the D800, it's true that this megapixel-beast needs premium glass to perform at it's best. But when a topnotch lens is attached, the output is stunning, even at high ISO. I've made some prints in color as in black/white, which were shot using a Zeiss Planar 85 f:1.4 at f11 to f16 , and I guarantee that this is very, very close to medium format. Sensors don't produce 3D looks in an image, the lens does indeed. Try using a 135 f2.0 DC and you can start drooling allover the screen..LOL. And please, if you're a tripod-landscape shooter: 100 ISO will do the trick, no high ISO's here. This is what the camera was built for. Sports ? Go D4 !

How about the performance of 16-35 VR on D800?

Dr GP: I congratulate product development folks at Nikon .
However, management and manufacturing chieftains should see their bonuses reduced: the products are essentially unavailable, except for a few famous photogs who are a subset of nps. The result lost sales, and lost opportunity of new lense sales.

Nikon why can't you introduce a new product and actually make it available? This notion of unprecedented demand is ridiculous. I don't even know anybody , anybody, who got a d800 or a d4. Buuuhya.

... beta testers, right !

This is good ... for those who have not yet bought the new toy! A rule of thumb, try not to be a guinea pig.

q8wizard: What about all the people who bought the d800 and they don’t know about all the problems, ok I know it has a focusing problems but all the other malfunctioning is hard to know whether it is something that I don’t know how to use or it is a problem from the camera, don’t you think they should recall all the serial numbers which have problem....

Which particular focusing problem are you referring to?
