ozturert: At least make it weather-proof. This lens is really cheap if Otus is your reference point. But then Otus is extremely-insanely expensive, so wrong reference point.
Canon 50mm L is f1.2, not f1.4. Nikon 58mm is too expensive for what it can do.Otus is way too expensive. If you compare any 50mm, then all other 50mms are bargain because all 50mm's are excellent.
What is the point of comparing a 135mm lens with a 35mm lens or a 85mm? This is confusing newbies. I don't care if Zeiss 135mm is sharper than Sigma 35mm lens as long as it does not have 35mm angle.DxO is for fun only, similar to 3DMark. Nvidia and ATI were doing all kinds of crap/cheats to receive the best scores because unfortunately buyers look at numbers only.Don't mind the numbers on DxO's site as long as you don't know what you are doing. A 135mm Zeiss is no better than an 18-55mm kit lens when you need a wide angle.
1500$... And tripod mount is extra... I think Tokina is having production issues, that's why they don't want to sell the lens...
AngryCorgi: Congrats to Samsung. They just tied Canon for the most recycled APS-C sensor. This is their 11th camera with a variant of their 20MP sensor, Canon hit #11 with the EOS M2 carrying a variant of their 18MP sensor.
Futility is a popular trait amongst some companies, to the point they seem to be competing at it.
If you take real photos instead of browsing ranking sites, you'll realize that both Samsung and Canon sensors are more than most users need.
Aaand, what was wrong with this sensor again?
I've never seen so many Canon haters in one place :)I think it's only me that sees the rubbish performance of RX100-II's lens. RX-100 had the same problem. The more yo go to corners the more the lens performance deteriorates.Plus I don't see the "terrible performance" of GX-II in RAW or JPEG on page 10.I gave my G1X to my brother for slow (really slow) general performance. Now using a second hand GF-3 with a 14-42X which is a really nice combo.
David H Dennis: I was at the Leica Store in West Palm Beach, and they had the T.
First, this is a real thing of beauty. It's gorgeous. If you appreciate pretty things, you will want one.
In an age when designer clothes can cost thousands of dollars, I'm not sure why people are so resentful about Leica's high prices. It's just like a designer handbag, but you use it every day. Why not pay a few extra bucks to have a more beautiful and sensuous experience in your photography?
I think a lot of people would love to own this, but can't afford it. That's just the nature of Leica's niche.
I will say that there is substance behind the pretty face. This is the best assembled camera I have ever seen, and I thought the software was beautifully crafted and very well thought out.
Then the Leica guy all but grabbed the camera away from me before I got to really know it. Sad, and poor salesmanship ... but if I was just a little closer to Leica's target demographic, I would have bought one on the spot.
And who said spending (or wasting?) 1000s of $s for clothes is OK?
At least make it weather-proof. This lens is really cheap if Otus is your reference point. But then Otus is extremely-insanely expensive, so wrong reference point.
Mirrorless bodies are progressively looking like DSLRs. Then, why do we have mirrorless cameras at all? Do 2 dials and sharper corners make the large mirrorless cameras very different from DSLRs?
A D610 with corners?
Nikon must callback all D600s and give back D610, and maybe charge 100-200$ for exchange. Terrible, really bad move by Nikon.
For 1500$ you could get D600 or 6D when there is sales. "Small-light body and lenses" do not count always. 1400$ is way too much. Heck, you have D7100 for 1150$!And I have an EM-5 as my 4th m4/3 body :)
Q series is even a worse joke than K-01. Go buy a real toy to play instead, and continue to take pictures with your phone.Not much smaller than E-PM2 or a Nex with 16-50mm, but with a tiny tiny sensor.
Any compact/bridge camera with 14 and more MP belongs to garbage. They don't take photograph they take waterpaint pictures.
Sony, listen to me: 18 and 20MP sensors are rubbish! They create the worst images I've seen. Blown highlights, noise even at base ISO, terrible per pixel details... Please stop cheating the users with these useless sensors and continue to develop 12MP sensors.
Very good but overpriced
Excellent. Now you know which lenses will mostly get the highest "Perceptual MPix" scores (hint: Nikon). Just a guess :)
coudet: Typical - 80% of the pictures show human suffering.
80% of the pictures people suffering, and 10% of them shows one of the responsibles :)
Shamael: this page layout is weird. Press grey review on top, you come to main page, press red review, and you are on a review listing, press Sony and you get Sony cameras. So, on the end you have to press "Click here to read ...."
That is now a few years that I am bored by this "turn around 7 corners" to reach what I want. Why could there not be this "Click here....." on the main page. When you click there, you end on the comments page, the one we are on here. Then you have to press another button to continue. What is that good for.Not all people on this globe have 1 gb second flat rate Internet. I live in the jungle and here I need 5 minutes to open DPR.
Agreed %200. You go to a page to read the review, but it seems that you need to click again to reach the actual review. Is this to increase number of hits? I cannot think of a logical reason behind this.
BBC should also reveal fake war photos and news from Irak, Syria and Afghanistan. These kinds of photos are used for leverage, unfortunately.
