Maybe not ground-breaking, but great for the price. When will we get the 100 and 200mm 2.8 also? Only for Nikon, Canon and Sony now?

On Olympus OM-D E-M5 II First Impressions Review preview (1392 comments in total)
In reply to:

Paul Kersey Photography: The problem this model has is called the OM-D E-M1. If it were able to overcome that, then there's the fact that the ability to improve upon the image quality has come to a halt. Like they say (with my caveat) that's not a bad thing...as long as that image quality is acceptable to you.

I think the current sale price of the original E-M5 makes it a far better value whereas the new one just isn't, despite the oodles of improvements.

This OM-D E-M1 has some interesting features. But would like to compare with others. Is there an Olympus "family tree" somewhere?! Lost track of their models some time ago...

Hope it's more simple than this

maxnimo: I was hoping the P610 was full frame with f2.8 all the way, but I don't believe it is:(

Maybe that's the new P700 with 80 (or 100?) x zoom? Should come with a solid tripod....

Better video, same level of EVF and LCD as SX60 and almost 0,1 kg less weight. Need to know more. But do not find it underwhelming or waste of time. Larger sensor would mean more heavy or less zoom?

Interesting, comparison with SX60 soon?

On 2014 Readers' Polls: The results are in! article (374 comments in total)

Already 36 "I had it" for Sony Alpha 7 II? And so on for others. Not satisfied? Or people here "buy" lots of cameras and play with them and return before 30 days? OK if they are called "B" or refurbished, so I can buy them at a lower price...

On Nikon D750 Review preview (1929 comments in total)

"In fact, at ISO 51200, the D750 is on par with Sony's much-acclaimed 'low light king', the A7S."

Seems to be the case. But to me the Sony Jpegs look much better. So what is done different here?

In reply to:

petemod: It would be nice if they just made one model that had a viewfinder AND a flip out screen.

Agree! Viewfinder a good thing, but 200.000 dots - would be ok 8 years ago? If it's the same as in LF1, not very good, read the dpr review. But could be helpful in sunshine anyway. And a fine LCD.

Hoping for a enthusiast compact with the GX7 tilting EVF...

Interesting figures for Olympus and Fuji: I own it - I had it. Lots of people sell these cameras after a short time. Would make me doubt if I was interested. Better figures for Pentax.

On Samsung NX300 real-world and test scene samples article (93 comments in total)
In reply to:

cgarrard: Samsung's rubbing elbows with cell phone users is not going to save their photo business (what little there is of it in the first place).

Samsung had a chance to really get ahead of Sony and other mirrorless makers and totally dropped the ball. Then they ran off the field and realized later what they had done. They then try to come back into the game. Uh no... it don't work that way Samsung.

NX300 is old news, stale.


Dropped the ball, really?
After enjoying G3 with 20mm for a while, got NX10 and 30mm very cheap. G3 better in low light, but in daylight NX10 is better, especially branches and leaves sharper. And VERY easy to use. And I'm sure NX300 is a LOT better.
But the 60mm is twice the weight of the Oly 60mm, a problem for the NX system.

If it has a lens cap not so fond of that. Small sensor. But EVF, hooray and very good Nikon! Articulated screen. 2.0 to 4.0, fine.

But waiting for more small compacts with EVF. Maybe in a pocket 15-20 x zoom? Nikon got it right. Panasonic not? (and why is EVF specification not as important as LCD specification for some?)

Tilting EVF and LCD, and in body stabilization?! Let's hope it's up among the best. Would be nice with my 20mm. Good to see Panasonic doing something new. Must be near the top of the dpr review list?

The picture of P520 shows tilting screen and EVF.
The specification list says None and Unknown.....
And - specifications for EVF is as important as for LCD - or what?

Specifications: Viewfinder type: Electronic
Yes, we know that! Maybe too embarrassing to mention the 202.000? Far behind the competition. My SX20 got 235.000.

In reply to:

Steve Levinson: I may be naive, but why do I feel that the whole industry is in a transitional period and all we have to do is wait a bit? We (or at least I) simply want a full-frame compact mirrorless camera with interchangeable (fast) lenses, a viewfinder and a decent AF. Every high end camera has some of these features but not all. Could someone build one? Tomorrow I bet! Will they? Of course not.

Someone can next year and several the year after. Hope they get it right...

Almost perfect, LCD could have been better, fine quality of EVF - but a bit small says Norwegian reporter. Interesting to see what Canon will come up with. Small grip another so-and-so EVF + LCD and so on?
Still a small sensor, but good to see somebody taking surperzooms seriously. Now what will it cost...

That's what some people looked like when I grew up, few doctors and no real health care. Those I knew did not fake it. Have not tried this position, not looking very comfortable...

In reply to:

Graystar: Wasn't the new Sony EVF supposed the spell the end of the optical viewfinder? Or maybe it was the EVF before that one...or maybe it was the one before that which was supposed to kill the optical viewfinder...I can't remember.

I like my optical viewfinder...stop trying to take it away!

Good news. High resolution EVFs made me continue taking photos. When you get older eyesight is not getting better. You can compose images better, less PP.
Still lots of OVFs in big cameras. But it's the same with most new products, - not good enough - don't want it - don't need it. Maybe just panic that OVF will disappear. I'm glad for any progress and you still have alternatives, so be happy, don't worry!
