ozturert: Is the plane picture really sharp? I understand that there is haze effect but still I cannot call it sharp.
I cannot understand why people keep saying "1" sensor from Sony is excellent". Well, it's OK at most. It's good enough but definitely not "excellent". I'd prefer a 1" 10MP Sony sensor. This 20MP sensor looks as if there is always some noise reduction which kills smaller details.
Or maybe it's just me...

"It's hard to believe that there are still people who believe in the fallacy that fewer pixels produce cleaner images because that idea has been shot down numerous times."
In bigger sensors like APSC and FF, you are right. Under a threshold, you are wrong. Look what happened in compacts, 20MP compact cameras do not produce pictures, they "paint".
I use my HX50v like tbcass says, BUT 10MP sensor would have better DR and noise behavior (I guess). In larger sensors I understand that more pixels and modern tech do not necessarily yield worse results (and I support more MP in DSLRs), OTH 1" seems too small for smaller pixels. And it shows in pictures.
That's one of the reasons m4/3 has been stuck with 16MP for years.
And if 10MP will look better, why 20MP? Even at ISO100 pixels are very soft and microdetails are not there.

tektrader: Its ENORMOUS, How is that micro 4/3rds ???

For a camera that size and lenses that big it may as well be full frame..

It's as huge as an iphone 6 :)

In reply to:

snapa: I thought one of the big selling points and advantages of the m4/3 camera system was its small size, weight and cost. Looking at those pictures makes me think WOW, that is one huge camera and lens. I wonder what all that weighs and costs?
Does it take better pictures than of some of the best APS-C cameras and lenses, at a lower price, that is the question ;)
From what I saw in the comparison shots, it did not IMO.

All OMD's are small, EM10s are even smaller. You need to touch one to understand. Or go to camerasize.com.
EM10 is at most as big and heavy as a mid-size Canon L lens only.

On Fujifilm X100T successor rumored to feature new lens article (269 comments in total)

They need to improve the 23mm f2.0 lens. It's not as good as people say. Yes it's good but not "excellent". In fact Fuji should come up with 2 different versions, one with 23mm the other with 56mm f1.8 (f1.2 would be too big). Or one model with 23-50mm f2-2.8mm.

ozturert: I haven't even looked at these pictures. I'll look at DxOMark site and decide, because I cannot decide myself just by looking at files and pictures, someone needs to herd me.
I don't even go out and take real photos, I just talk and brag and talk and brag in forums for hours, and explain how my ISO25600-looks-fantastic camera takes excellent photos of an A4 paper I put on the wall.
But that's just me, I know that you are not like me...

I do, I love them. They are my everything. They are source of my ideas, my motto. If a camera's DxOMark is 3-4 points more than the other, I rush to buy that. At the end of the day, DxOMark is everything. Don't care about usability, ergonomics, lens and flash system, and even "if image quality is enough for my use" is not important to me. I have the have the camera with best sensor available, I have to have the winner.
Nobody was taking beautiful photos with older sensors or film, all good photos came with Top-20 DxOMark cameras. Others are useless.

On Bang for the Buck: Olympus OM-D E-M10 II Review article (514 comments in total)

Olympus and Panasonic are introducing really nice cameras. Useful, practical, fast, small, light. Together with small and light but excellent lenses, m4/3 system shows how mirrorless systems should be.
But I know I know, DxOMark...

I'm not angry, just waiting patiently for DxOMark to decide...

In reply to:

ozturert: I don't think using Sigma on Canikon is a good idea to test low-light focusing. Plus, why did you not use a 35mm lens on Canikons? I wonder how 5Ds would do with a 35mm f1.4L.
Still, obviously Sony came a long way since even A6000 because A6000 is horrible in lowlight focusing. Actually, EM5 is much better than A6000 in that. A7RII is a big step forward.

abortabort, in good light yes, A6000's AF-C is waaay better than EM5's. At AF-S, I can say EM5 is better with many m4/3 lenses.
I've tried A6000 with AF-C in low light, it's fractionally better. But I still don't like using AF-C if I don't need to.
It's interesting that AF-C in low light yields slightly better results than AF-S. I think it's the same in A7RII.

I'm sure that DxO would give this sensor a low point, being a non-Sony product...

abortabort, I tried A6000 with 50mm f1.8OSS, Zeiss 55mm f1.8, Zeiss 24mm f1.8 under same conditions with EM5 with 20mm f1.7, 45mm f1.8 and 14mm f2.5. EM5 can still focus when A6000 hunts forever.
Absolutic, I haven't seen his comment. Mayhe Rishi can write that in the text (or maybe he already did and I haven't seen :) )
Anyway, I haven't tried A7R II myself so I cannot comment 100%, but I've used 5DMIII and D800 and they were not bad at -2EV, I'd expect D750 and 5Ds to be better.

On Fujifilm X-T10 Review preview (432 comments in total)
In reply to:

ozturert: When Fuji gives up their "interesting" sensor technology and switches to Bayer, I'll have a second look at X system. Now, Sony's and Samsung's APSC sensors are superior in details (and slightly in DR but not too important for me). Some like Fuji's sensors, I don't.

I tried DxO I think (that was 18 months ago, I don't exactly remember), the results were better than ACR. But still JPEGs from the camera smooths the details considerably.

rjaywallace: Forgetting price for the moment, how will its performance compare to the Leica Q compact or the Panasonic Lumix GX8? When will DPReview publish in-depth evaluations of the Leica Q and the GX8 compacts?

Compared to Leica Q?

Direct link | Posted on Aug 12, 2015 at 15:17 UTC

"Converted from Raw to taste in ACR" means that we cannot see the original RAW's but the edited results. Is that right?

The price is incredible. Now no need for kit lens, just buy a body and this lens.
