2016 is here, and I am still waiting for other more gears of the year editors' choice :p not forgetting the D810 review. Tony Northrup has a big thumbs up on this... even over the D750...

Photo-Wiz: My upgrade path is from one Fuji APC to another Fuji APC. Great lenses, small form factor, and superb image quality.

i'm just waiting for Fuji X-series to offer FF

Monstermayank: Ironically I dont see marketing guys pushing you towards FF, it's mostly the internet forums that do so.

yea, and review websites that emphasize FF offer better IQ over APS-C MFT 1"... of course I too think that FF is the way to go if I care about IQ...

rjaywallace: Barney - the Leica Q MIGHT be nice IF IT REALLY EXISTED outside of demo models provided to the trade press. The Q was announced on June 10 and, checking just now on December 21, B&H Photo still lists it as a "Preorder Item" "coming soon" "shipping date unavailable" more than six(6) months later. Bull! The camera is at best an attractive mirage and at worst an outright fabrication. Something must be seriously wrong with the Q if it cannot reach the retail stream six(6) months after its grand and glorious announcement.

in Singapore the Q was sold out in all Leica stores something in Sep/Oct...

Barney, why in dpreview's studio you didn't pixel peep to look at the quality? :) btw good video. I enjoyed it... it is a "formal" approach to real-world review rather than informal like digitalrev etc...

typographical error pg11

"The example above isn't something I'd print out and hang on my wall, but it's my best example of what the 750D was able to do."

it should be D750 :p

DanceOfLight: A digital equivalent of Pentax LX with all the beautiful manual controls and added digital bits. 24 mm × 36 mm sensor with no AA filter. Keep the mount, throw the mirror out, bring in the EVF and we are done.

- Tripod mount needs to be aligned in the exact center of the lens mount. optional -Add another tripod mount for vertical shooting without clumsy L brackets (645NII/645D come to mind)

- Give me clean pixels instead of Giga pixles any day

- Throw in a few F1.8 leaf shutter primes for silent operation and great flash sync

- Keep the weather sealing and the line of WR lens

- Bring a few decently priced TS lens

result - Happy puppy :)

not bad :) you have some nice points!
