drummercam: Market release, late 2015. DPR review thereof, late 2017 . . . as part of a "round-up." It's Pentax.

Terrible, these free services that are offered to you, right?

petemod: By the year 2022 my phone will have 3.2 gigapixels.

Carrying a phone in 2022 will be so retro!

Rick_Hunter: Oh for God's sake... why do they keep making these stupid gizmos like a phone was meant to be a proper camera? And who would be so stupid to use his phone's bluetooth for this thing, draining battery juice and/or precluding the use of more useful bluetooth stuff like a in-car handsfree or a headset? This is beyond me...

I'm not convinced that it's going to drain much battery. Bluetooth accessories have improved quite a bit over the years.
I also don't see why you can't pair with more than one accessory if needed. Lots of people use multiple things like Bluetooth earphones, car kits etc with the same device.

Timmbits: Samsung's 16-50mm F2.0-2.8 with OIS is looking pretty good right now...

And Mike FL, again your comments do not make sense in this conversation. Just stay on topic, which is this lens and not what you read somewhere that somebody else used.

The artificial rage about so called trolling with the Parkinson comment is so far of the topic. Just don't call people trolls if their opinion differs and move on.
We don't all run after you to try to fix your "Apple-Xerox" rip-of theory, even if it's a tired old cliche.

munro harrap: Nice, possibly well-made. Are its electrical circuits using proper tin/lead solder, or will it stop working like all the others do?

Come on it is 2015 and I think it is about time that photographers equipment became again as long-lived and reliable as it was before the EU and others decided to RoHS everything we spend money on, forcing us to repurchase over and over again. My kids are in their teens now, but in their lifetime they will have to replace their DSLRs and lenses 7 or 8 times unless something is done, killing the planet and exhausting natural resources in the process, not to mention the west becoming utterly dependent on those of China and Taiwan and Japan in the most unhealthy way.

Completely irrelevant EU bashing added to a lens hands-on. Btw with things like much extended consumer laws in many EU countries consumers are much better protected against manufacturers than in other regions. But that's really not the topic here.

Sangster: This should be the kit lens packaged with the XT-1

Because every enthusiast wants to run around with a big f 2.8 zoom on vacation. Right.

Great, buy one then. Like all Fuji glass for their current cameras, this will be a very nice lens too.
Mike FL, I have no idea what you want to express here, not a single sentence of your post makes sense to me.

On Leica M9 users report sensor corrosion issue article (379 comments in total)
In reply to:

boarderphreak: Always fun to watch the Leica bashers crawl out of the woodwork. Because you know, this has *never* happened to any other manufacturer. Sh*t happens. The real test is how the respective company deals with it. And deal with it they will (check back tomorrow).

I just hope they cover this issue for a couple more years or offer affected users some other fair solution. Covering a manufacturing defect / known issue with this visibility for three years is not good enough in my opinion.

In reply to:

Jogger: I guess they wanted to stack the deck by excluding the A6000, it would have destroyed these cameras, esp. when price is factored in.

Every time when somebody claims that something destroys a competitor product or blows it out of the water it's usually a good sign for somebody taking the gear talk too serious. :)

On Amazon Fire Phone camera review post (61 comments in total)

Amazon is now just letting DPR test its own products. Nice, and to what surprise, there suddenly seems to be a decent phone when most other reviewers marked the device down as being nowhere close to the major players.

On Fujifilm X100T (beta) real-world samples article (105 comments in total)
In reply to:

Tandua: I like fujifilm camera, I had x100s, xe1, xpro1 and now I have x-t1.

but..after 2 years from x100s...I don't see ...big improvments (same AF and sensor, no WR, no tilt screen)

..I prefer my x-t1 + 27 pancake instead x100s (xt1 is wr, tilt screeen, good grip, iso control, etc):

why do you choose x100t instead x-t1 (or x-e2)+27? for 5mm?

size comparison (xt1+27 vs x100s): http://j.mp/1iDE1HY
(xe2+27 vs x100s) : http://j.mp/1iRYmsS

This has often been discussed in the forum btw. For many people the silent shutter and much nicer build quality might already be enough to prefer the x100 line.
Sure, WR and tilt screen would have been nice improvements though!

princecody: Nobody has said how much better the IQ is compared to the S model

I think it won't be long before the first longer reviews arrive. Looks like a nice camera although I'm not sure about those rear buttons until I tried one.

Zvonimir Tosic: First the amazing GX7, now LX100.
This is brilliant; real thinking outside the box.

Jarola, and this follows Sony how exactly? By bringing out a camera?

On Opinion: Do we really need the Fuji X30? article (311 comments in total)
In reply to:

Michael Perham: When Fuji came out with the X100 I was enthralled and bought one, and the X100s after that. However, my main camera is still a DSLR and this was my compact for when I didn't want to haul around the DSLR. But, over time I found that this was really not compact enough for the intended purpose and ultimately replaced the X100s with an enthusiasts pocketable camera. I am happy now.

Unfortunately we are not discussing the x100 here but the x30 which is a very different product.

Shirker: My original iphone has just been rendered non-operative by an Apple reset, so this phone might just be the replacement.

A component failure is always an option, we all know that. The non functioning device though is non functioning because a hardware failure prevents it from operating as expected. Besides he's talking about a reset, not a restore.

And what "reset" from Apple would that be that renders an original non-modified iPhone non-operative??? My first gen iPhone is still in use in the family and works great.
I question this "theory" to say the least.

EthanP99: Fuji is adding stuff that has been in cameras for quite a while now. Good job?

@The Name is Bond:
Changing the colour in focus peaking is hardly a must-have feature and doesn't change the camera dramatically. In fact, there are hardly any big changes in here.

Making more functionality available to customers for free is always a good job.
