On Olympus OM-D E-M5 II Review preview (675 comments in total)
In reply to:

retro76: So just curious dpreview, which camera is the best JPEG maker: Fuji or Olympus ? (or other). I'm lazy and I am tired of processing raw...,

JPG OOC? Fuji, the answer is always Fuji and I'm a Pentax shooter.

In reply to:

lacikuss: Maybe this new d7200 is almost at the 70d level?

I think that the AF tracking speed and accuracy of the D7200 will be much better than the D4S, 1DX and 7DII let alone the 70D but of course the burst will be slower basing on what the D750 can do.

"The D750 inherits a version of the 51-point Multi-CAM 3500FX AF system that we've seen used in the D800 and D810 but its 'II' version is actually more sensitive - rated down to -3 EV on all of those points. The D750 thereby offers superior AF reliability in poor light compared to the D810 and D4S, which is quite something (and which might prompt more than a few D800 owners to 'upgrade' to the D750)."

The D810/D4S: Nikon Advanced Multi-CAM 3500FX autofocus sensor module with TTL phase detection

The D750/D7200: Nikon Advanced Multi-CAM 3500FX II autofocus sensor module with TTL phase detection

In reply to:

Vinnie D: I understand that some might not like the modest incremental updates over the D7100. And this camera may not have every feature one could want, tilt screen, gps, 4K, etc...

But what would you say to those, like me, that are upgrading from a much older camera(D90) and have a nice selection of Nikon DX lenses?

To me it seems like a spectacular upgrade.

That new AF system uses in this camera that betters the D810 and D4S is more than a reason enough to upgrade from the D90.

What is it with all the negativity on this camera? It has the same AF of the D750 which is rated to be better than the D810 and D4S and finally a deeper buffer.

Aside from a bit slower burst rate, just give this thing a magnesium body and you can call this a D400

70D better at AF? This thing carries the AF system of the D750 which is rated to be better even than the D810 and D4S.

Nice video real world review of Sony A6000. It never did feel like a product advertisement since they are reviewing guess what? A Sony camera!

It is also refreshing that a professional who knows what to do with it reviewed the camera and came back with excellent results in contrast to the keyboard warrior posts who probably don't know half the capabilities of their own system. There I said it! :p

Anyway, I hate the horrid EVF of the A6000.

Pentax is doomed! No EVF?

ThatCamFan: Sadly it's noise is still going to be far higher than in Canon & Nikon + Sony, wish it weren't so but they always are more behind than even Canon and that's saying something.

K10D and K20D sensors were from Samsung

In reply to:

Meuh: Is this the same AF as in the k5ii with f2.8 center point and the ability to focus in low light?

Could be and I hope so because of this statement:

3. High-precision autofocus system with SAFOX X module: The K-S2 features the state-of-the-art SAFOX X AF sensor module, which assures responsive, high-precision autofocus operation. With its 11 sensors including nine cross-type sensors in the middle, this AF system assures pinpoint focus on a subject at a minimum brightness level of as low as –3 EV.

Put a FF sensor on the K3 and call it the D700 :)

fakuryu: How dare Fuji release an improved camera over a very capable predecessor with a much lower introductory price that will be even lower in a couple of months!

How dare they provide options for an entry level camera for consumers who just wants to have a nice camera! The nerve!

After shooting with Fuji's latest and greatest (X100T, XT1, XPro1, XE2 but just for quick impression reviews), I helped my friend get an XA1 and played with it. I must say that the IQ is well above the price even with the kit lens and handles pretty well with the XF 27 f2.8

In reply to:

jtan163: One of the interesting things about Samsung is they are also a phone company with all the regulatory and engineering experience in that field that Canon and Nikon don't have.

I wonder if they will be perceptive enough to put a cell modem in a pro specified camera?

Media shooters would benefit instead of having to carry around wifi hotspots or backpacks with clunky hacked together systems.

I think what @jtan163 meant was Sammy adding a SIM slot for data (LTE, LTE-A). Just imagine how quick it would be to send out shots to your home base if there is an adequate signal.

In reply to:

io_bg: Having read some of the comments I still can't get it why is everyone so obsessed with the DOF capabilities of fullframe cameras and always equalize it with other formats' DOF capabilities.

But but but "Bokeh!"???

In reply to:

GodSpeaks: I think Ricoh needs to find a new marketing team.

A high magnification and a large diameter telephoto zoom? Really?

Probably because those are not the final specifications yet. Maybe we can assure that the high magnification lens would be a 100-400 lens and the large diameter telephoto zoom is an f2.8 lens.

In reply to:

nerd2: XT-1 is nice and all but I think it's still seriously overpriced. Should be similar to a6000 ($700-800 range at most) considering it only has 16MP APS sensor and lacks IBIS.

Nothing really wrong with 16mp sensor. In the sense the dF/D4/D4S should be lower than the asking price because of just having a 16mp sensor and the A7S should be lower as well because of the 12mp sensor (compared to other FF cameras)?

deserthawk742: C'mmon NIKON, where's D400?

I think Nikon already killed that dream with the D750 (I think basically what the D400 could have been if it was an APSC)

In reply to:

sneakyracer: Overall the 7D2 is a superb Camera Body looking for a better sensor. The Image Quality in both Stills and Video is Competent but not class leading. It is a shame because everything else is superb. (could use WiFi though).

I doubt that Canon engineers cannot fit a Wi-Fi module inside that FF like sized body of the 7DII
