On Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF7 flips for selfies article (390 comments in total)
In reply to:

elkhidir: Both Sony a5100 and Olympus E-PL7 are selling (quite well it seems) for that price. Both have "selfie" screens and lack viewfinders. If there's a market for it, there's nothing wrong with Panasonic getting in. For us consumers it will add to competition and push prices down.

The advantage of the olympus is you can put the vf-2 / vf-4 viewfinders on it and you have a very versatile camera.

Pentax 16-85 3.5/5.6 £599
Pentax 18-135 3.5/5.6 £379
Both WR . Not convinced the extra 2mm @ wide angle 24mm equiv to 27mm equiv is worth the extra £220

$750 = £470 give or take a couple of quid. BUT Pentax uk are selling this in the uk for £600 ?? Once again another example of how Pentax are screwing the uk consumer.

These comparisons are meaningless because it doesn't matter which is best, the winner will always be a canon or nikon.

What a lost opportunity ?? All Olympus had to do was put a small viewfinder on this like panny LF-1 ,call it Trip digital and you've got a sure fire winner.

Absolutic: I dont understand why Amazon's preorder page shows April as delivery date, while dpreview article here suggest February. I am going on vacation in Mid February so it makes difference to me

I just posted same comment without seeing yours. I got $1.596 to to £ yesterday making this equiv to £628 saying its a scandal, I think you are being very polite.

Cost $999/£999 $999=£628 at today's exchange rate. Yet another rip off for the British consumer.

I thought what a great camera Olympus had made when I got my xz-1. Now the lens unit has appeared on the Pentax mx-1 & now the Casio I have to wonder did olympus make any of the xz-1 ? I suspect all three come out of the same factory. Now olympus have launched the stylus 1 how long before the 28-300 lens unit appears on other makes ?

Digital Suicide: 100D in white would be a "genius" move from canon to keep their customers.. :D

Wow, a Canon 100d in white. But then again I could buy a Pentax K50 in 120 colour combinations. 20 body colours x 6 grip colours.

On Nikon D5300 preview (278 comments in total)

I read these comments and wonder how you all managed to take photos 30 years ago when there was a thing called film & cameras had lenses that you had to manually focus & if you were lucky you could spot meter in addition to the average metering !!!

On Hands-on with the Olympus Stylus 1 article (47 comments in total)

I stopped carrying a dslr when I got an Olly xz-1wiyh vf-2. I thought it would be nice to have a longer zoom and built in vf. Think Olympus have answered my prayers.

On Panasonic DMC-GM1 preview (631 comments in total)

I think for the vast majority of people the dmc LF1 is a much better buy. 28-200 equiv zoom, built in v/f which is actually very good and I really doubt if anyone can tell difference in iq due to sensor size.

Piggy the bad: I have to wonder is the Panny fz200 a better overall bet ?

This isn't such a silly question. Having bought last year an Olympus xz-1 I very rarely carrying my Pentax k10 with me. The performance of these small sensors is so good that I don't think you can draw a comparisons like you could with different film sizes.

yabokkie: still confused who is who. do you sure the camera tested is really 700D?

Canon name their cameras differently for Europe, Americas, Asia to stop grey importing.
