A really interesting, thoughtful, interview.

"First developed in Soviet Russia in the late 1940’s"

A lens endorsed by Joseph Stalin? :-)

In reply to:

justmeMN: The last time Thom Hogan estimated Japan ILC market share, he put Fujifilm dead last, behind Canon, Nikon, Sony, Olympus, Pentax, and Panasonic.

In mirrorless-centric Japan, he put their ILC market share at a whopping 4.1%.

This hour on Japan's BCN Ranking ILC list, the best selling Fuji bundle is #44.

Here is a link to the previously mentioned Thom Hogan article:

"We recommended the Sony a6000 in our roundups because it's probably the best all-rounder in its class" -DPR

Didn't that camera get an Award for Worst Kit Lens? :-)

The larger point: Many people mostly, or exclusively, use the kit lens, so the quality of the kit lens is important. Camera reviews should include testing the quality of the kit lens.

I think they should unify their branding, and call all of their cameras Pentax.

In the USA, when I hear the Ricoh brand name, the first thing I think of is photocopiers.

"the photo shoot features model Amber Bourke, a champion free diver"

Wow, just wow. I used to scuba dive, but I could never do what she did for that image.

Way better than using a GoPro. :-)

"We’d like to be at least in the top three companies in the camera business by market share." [in five years’ time].

That strikes me as being unrealistic "happy talk". I think their current worldwide ILC market share is pretty tiny.

The fact that the photographer is here, makes it uncomfortable to engage in the kind of gratuitous cruelty that is characteristic of DPR. :-)

Nothing a little duct tape won't solve. :-)

New and worsened! Now with fewer features!

That sounds like the basis of an appropriate Panasonic advertising campaign. :-)

A good camera for getting robbed at the beach. :-)

In reply to:

Bob Janes: Hmmm, don't quite understand why "made in the USA" is a like....

"why "made in the USA" is a like...."

Because people in the USA want their fellow citizens to have jobs. (Amazon, which owns this site, is a US-based company.)

It's also a bonus to buy something that isn't manufactured in some third-world sweatshop, and/or by child labor, etc.

Photos aside, he clearly puts in a lot of hard work trying to be creative. That alone is meritorious.

I don't need no newfangled nylon. Canvas suits me just fine. :-)

"Ruggedwear is a waxed-canvas fabric that Domke claims combines toughness, water resistance, and a retro 'well-worn' look." -DPR

Duluth Pack has been using canvas to make canoe packs since 1882, and it's great material.

I'm not allowed to buy this camera, because I don't have a beard. :-)

USD $1,699.95 with no kit lens. In my experience, cameras with no lenses have poor image quality. :-)
