JDThomas: Is England going to require the return of all foreign works of fine art to their country of origin? What is the British Museum doing with Egyptian mummies and Greek statues?

Surely they should be returned to their rightful place in the world?

Just yesterday ISIS destroied the museum in Mosul: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2970270/Islamic-State-fighters-destroy-antiquities-Iraq-video.html

On Sony Xperia Z3 camera review post (115 comments in total)

How old is this review?

"With a DxOMark Mobile score of 79 the Sony Xperia Z3 takes the number two spot in the DxOMark smartphone rankings, placing itself just behind the Samsung Galaxy S5 and in front of its own predecessor, the Xperia Z2."

DxOMark have iPhone 6 and 6+ at the top of smartphone chart since Sep 23, 2014.

As for Z3, I don't understand how SONY keep screwing up its mobile division. Z have bad screen, Z1 have ok screen yet still the non-removable film. Z2 and Z3 are a lot better but camera still far behind Apple and Samsung which uses SONY sensor.

Peiasdf: "dynamic range of about 11 stops"
Isn't that the crappy Leica sensor? Looks at the size and lack of control, I think buying an A7 series and use adapter will make more sense.

@darngooddesign
This is a digital RF more similar to A7 than M9/X-Pro

In reply to:

saiko: Does anyone know how do they cut these lenses in halves?
Do they cut each component separately and carefully assemble them back? Or do they slice up a whole lens at one go?
Always been in mystery to me.

I am going to guess a very slow rotating thin diamond cutting wheel.

A lot of waste space inside the 645Z. The m4/3 by comparison is far more space efficient. Too bad there are no SONY EVIL/mirrorless cut in half as SONY is the gold-standard in space efficiency.

Also, stop complaining about the sandwich. I have fried noodle for Chinese-New-Year-eve because my fancy fridge is still being repaired by LG.

Rooru S: DPReview Team. Did you ask Sony about any future plans for A-mount? Or can I start selling my equipment now?

A-mount is dead. Sell your lenses while the price are still high.

Look at Olympus, string their faithful and dumb 4/3 users for 4 years always say 4/3 is not dead, there will be more body coming, before pulling the rug under them and tell them to use adapter on their E-M5. I think some still holds out for a $1700 E-7 that's basically E-5 with SONY sensor sometime before 2020.

They have have 2 contests each with 10 categories. One for Hasselblad medium only and the other for everything else. I want to see a pros with SONY FF sensor vs Hasselblad medium shootout.

#8 with the cute Dutch cadet is the only one I like. The rest are all sob-stories that you can find everyday on Facebook, cable news, tabloids, Lifetime movies and Korean dramas.

Yeah, life is difficult.... poofs are in the bible and Buddhism texts. I rather focus on the small bits of happiness and share that with people.

I hope Pentax don't increase the size of it camera just to "balance" the lens. Compact FF is where it is at.

On CP+ 2015: Canon shows off new EOS 5DS and 5DS R article (117 comments in total)

The auto-ISO bias option on my G7X is very useful and not available on my D90, E-PL2 and X-E1. I wonder if newer models from Fuji and SONY have this option as this function lets me get X-E1 quality photos from G7X.

kodos: The more I see how the lens situation is panning out the more glad I am that I went Micro 43rds (for my shooting style/subjects). The lenses are huge on FF Mirrorless. Though I am sometimes wondering if the Fuji mirrorless system might have been a good compromise instead. But I love my little Olympus bodies and lenses.

I think I'd rather get a FF DSLR system as a complement to my M43 setup, and have the best of both worlds when I need it.

But for those who love FF Mirrorless, I am glad that Sony is about to unleash some more lenses! It was the primary thing holding me back from pulling the trigger.

Have you tried RX100 III and G7X? I have both Olympus E-PL2 and Fujifilm X-E1 and now I got a G7X. The G7X with it fast and longer reach lens produces very good photos at truely pocketable size. The auto ISO option let me keep shutter at 1/15 and very low ISO. The result is way better than what I get with E-PL2 + 20 f/1.7 and comparable to my X-E1 + kit zoom.

There is a lot of repetition in Pentax's line up. There are 11 primes covering the 30-55mm range, 6 standard zooms from 16mm-50/85/135, etc. I'd imagine Nikon and Canon might be the same but either company sold ten times more cameras than Pentax.

On CP+ 2015: Hands-on with new Pentax K-S2 article (194 comments in total)

Picture 3 brings up memory of a visit to the science & technology museum in Taiwan 20 some years ago. Not saying anything bad about the K-S2, just the lighting and the honeycomb pattern on the top panel reminds me of a simpler time. It made this ugly duckling of a camera more endearing to me. Maybe I will pick up an used one someday as souvenir. :D

A 3D printed mockup. Essentially means they haven't even decided on a design yet.

Peiasdf: Anyone figure out how or evolved enough to hold this camera comfortably?

I totally understand why this camera is this way. Photography is an elite activity and not a peasant pasttime. There is no reason to design a camera that a peasant, at first glance, would know how to hold. When holding this camera I would be distinguishing myself from the dirty serfs.
