This company continues to disgrace itself. In the old (film) days it had a top notch reputation but now it is a joke!

On Sigma announces dp1 Quattro article (202 comments in total)

I'm running out of room. I have the 3 Merrills but can't find space for 3 more quattros. Interchangable lenses on one body would have been nice!

Irrespective of shape, size, handling, speed or colour ultimately image quality is what counts and Sigma delivers. I am happy with that!

On IMG_8774 photo in dpreview review samples's photo gallery (2 comments in total)

There is just nothing special about these images that would entice me to go out and buy this camera. I'll hang on to my present Canon 7D for now.

We may poke fun of the colour but beneath that toyish look is one seriously good camera!

jsandjs: There is a voice detector missing. For instance, whenever an OMG was heard, a picture was taken.

How about "on" and "off" command?

No good to anyone if it is unaffordable!

On Hasselblad responds to Lunar criticisms article (628 comments in total)

We all seem to be experts on camera design judging by the critical comments made here. Hassy should ask us to submit our designs for their appraisal. Winner gets the production camera for nothing. The other submitted designs should be made public and laughed at!

Suggest he contact Mark Newson for advice who designed the K-01! Seriously, contrary to the many critics, who whine about lack of viewfinder and its brick like build the Pentax K-01 is a joy to use. Coupled with the superb IQ this camera is hard to beat. Not a problem on a long vacation at all!

rondom: the lens still looks like a lens. they should do something about it...
