On article All about that lens: Sony Cyber-shot RX10 III review (294 comments in total)

To all those commenting that a APS-C or FF with 24-70+70-200+200-500 is a much better option, think about this

1. It will cost much much more than $1500. Even a 4K APS-C with 16-300 will cost 1500$ approx .

2. Imagine your great FF camera with 24-70 shooting landscapes much better than this piece of rubbish. You see a great bald eagle within reach. You reach into your $200 camera bag carrying the lens which is 100 times better than this pile of rubbish. You remove your 24-70 and attach the 400mm lens. And the eagle is gone.

The second point is what people do not get. In non studio situations, there is not enough time to change lenses. The moment goes away.

In reply to:

SKPhoto12: I tried to dowload the plugin and it seemed to work. However when I wanted to activate it, it asked for an activation code. I want to try it for free before I pay, so why do I need an activation code? Is this just a bluff to make you download it and compel you to pay?

You can use it without activation code

I think Sony is targeting people with DSLRs who want a second companion camera, and APS-C shooters who just buy one all purpose lens like 18-300 etc.,

tsk1979: I have a question here. Are studio shots taken at many focal lengths? For a superzoom, it does not make sense to take them at 1 focal length.

@dpreview, for non ILCs please take studio scene comparisons at multiple focal lengths. For example in this case
24mm 35mm 50mm 85mm 105mm 135mm 150mm 200mm 300mm 400mm 600mm

This will allow people to compare with other cams in a more meaningful way.

Yes, its fair, but how useful is it? When zoom lenses are reviewed. they are not reviewed at just one focal length, right?

tsk1979: dpreview, I want to see a comparison test with a DSLR + 16-300 lens vs RX 10 III
a 4K APS-C DSLR + 16-300 is approx 1400-1500$. That would lay to rest any doubts whether this 1500$ is worth it or not

Aren't we nitpicking here. 6 months from now 4K will be here. Moreover, many 4K shooters actually go for video cams. Sony wants to hit the 90% of DSLR users who buy a mid range DSLR + 16-300 all in one lens

16-300 is 24-450. That is more than what FZ1000 offers. So, if they can compare against FZ1000 why not a DSLR with 16-300. After all, this is the segment Sony can target. We may not be has good as a APS-C with prime lens, but we will beat any ordinary lens on APS-C

In reply to:

NSingh: Looks to be a good camera but Price is too too much. Please suggest me amongst Canon 80D, Sony A6300 and Sony A6000. I just want a good live view and sharp image.

A6300 with 18-200 is the closest you get to this. Or A6300 + Sigma MC11 + 18-300 from Sigma

I think dpreview needs to redo the studio scene. The 55 1.4 lens seems to be de-centered. Without this, the noise comparison is useless!

Wow. This is awesome. I really hope that dpreview reviews this before the idiotic GX8

tsk1979: Color me surprised!
I was expecting worse from this lens. Tamron has pushed to 16-300 while delivering performance comparable to 18-200/250 kind of lenses.
I guess, the excellend sharpness at 16mm makes it a worth alternative to the native 18-200 e mount lenses. In the 18-200 range its as good at a lower price point, and gives you proper wide angle too!

I was talking about adapting it

I guess the full review is coming up soon. I can foresee a gold award for this one. Studio scene is impressive. And at ISO 6400 or so, it is pretty close to A7S!

On article Quick Review: PhotoKeeper (103 comments in total)
In reply to:

jonathanj: Interesting. Personally I just want a storage service, and I don't think anyone can beat Amazon Cloud Drive for price ($12 per year for unlimited photos).
However, I admit the Amazon feature set is almost non-existent in comparison, so there's definitely a market for sites like PhotoKeeper that have a much richer feature set.
And no, it's not an advert to write a short article about a new site that might be of interest to the readers. Keep writing them, guys :-)

Flickr does not offer 1TB or even 1MB no matter how much you want to pay. Why? Because you cannot store RAW files. Only cloud storage worth considering is one that does RAW.

People often confuse "portfolio" sites with "cloud storage". Those are different things guys
