On Nikon 1 V3: a quick summary article (582 comments in total)
In reply to:

mdmiataman: I have an APS C Nikon D5100 and three lenses, a Lumix GX7 and three lenses and my waterproof Olympus TG-2. I have all the bases covered. Why would anyone spend $1200 for a smaller sensor camera than a M 4/3 with limited lens choices is beyond me.
My Nikon DX lens choices are about 50, and Panasonic and Olympus M 4/3 choices are about 40 and increasing in numbers monthly.
Nikon 1 V3 is a waste of time,.. and money !!!
..to quote Ken Rockwell, " It's always better to spend your time and money on learning art and photography, not by spending it on more cameras. "

Even a broken clock is right twice a day! :)

You gotta laugh at people suggesting 16mp is not enough, like blind little lambs following fast in the marketing departments wake.
Run little lambs, there's a paddock full of megapixels just up ahead.....

On Fujifilm X-E2 Review preview (283 comments in total)
In reply to:

Shunda77: Why are all the Canikon fan bois running so scared over these Fuji cameras?

Is it because Nikon's woeful jpeg engines and Canon's outdated sensors are developing into festering sores on the buttocks?

I'd take Fuji's skin tones over the crap that Nikon cameras spit out any day. I am a Nikon shooter by the way, but just don't prescribe to this brand loyalty bs that drives so much discussion on this site.
Nikon = lots of time post processing
Canon = weak dynamic range and outdated sensor performance.

The high ISO performance of this camera is truly impressive, Fuji are now a very serious player in the APS-C market.

On Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II: a quick summary article (532 comments in total)

The problem is that it has got a big sensor with canons outdated sensor technology, so the advantages of better high iso, dynamic range etc are simply not going to be there in the way that they should.

It's almost unbelievable actually, and they just released yet another camera with that positively ancient 18mp sensor!!!!

Good grief.

On Tamron develops 16-300mm F3.5-6.3 superzoom for APS-C SLRs news story (211 comments in total)

This lens could be a game changer for those wanting an all in one lens on a DSLR to replace a superzoom bridge cam, it could also be a fantastic walk around lens as it is remarkably light weight for its range.

Obviously there will be optical compromises, but some of the recent lens developments have been pretty well engineered for the range they cover.

In short, if this lens can provide reasonable image quality without too many quirks, it will become very popular.

Watch this space......

On DxOMark tests Canon EOS 70D sensor and lenses news story (133 comments in total)
In reply to:

lensberg: DXO might serve as the holly grail for the average Nikon fan... but their "supposed tests" hardly serve as any meaningful purpose in determining which camera / brand is the best from an overall performance point of view...

DXO's only real purpose seems to be that of a proxy for Nikon's marketing department... to give the average joe something "scientific" to go by... Plus they should add a camera quality score... something where Nikon's D600 / 800 would score abysmally... oil spots and dust galore...

Best method of determining which camera is best suited for you is to read a broad spectrum of reviews across the web to formulate your own nonbiased opinions... Or just walk into any camera store and get a first hand account for which body suits your best...

Ok, lets forget about the Nikon full frame models for a second and focus only on the APS-C line up. Actually, let's forget about even THE CURRENT Nikon APS-C line up and compare the previous models against the current Canon lineup. What do we find? even the lowly D5100 completely outclasses the entire Canon APS-C lineup for image quality, and these "tests" are not done only by DXO, they have been overwhelmingly confirmed by every outfit that has tested image quality. Saying dynamic range is not important is like saying DSLR's are not important compared to compacts for image quality. The differences are real, they have practical applications, and they are significant points to consider when choosing a system to invest in. Throw into that mix the excellent Nikon lenses and the hight spec focusing systems (even on entry bodies) and you have a compelling reason for people to go with a Nikon APS-C camera.
Defend Canon to the hilt, who cares, but it doesn't change the situation.
