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

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

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

RyanBoston: So the 70D is in a lower class and still scored higher and got a gold award. I guess that's great news for 70D owners who don't need the insane focus system for half the price. Great job on the review! I'm sure it was tough to get it out as early as you guys did.

Well you can Google it, there plenty of examples since the K20D. Being someone who cannot use the camera well does not mean that the camera is not capable (cough cough)

PenGun: Amazing. The Fuji X cameras are the best APS-C cameras there are right now for pure image quality. The Sony FF stuff now rules the roost and looks like it will replace one of the Canikon pair in a couple of years.

There sure is a pile of astroturf over this camera and the Nikon 750, ya think it's panic ... nah. ;)

Not all Fuji X cameras uses the X-trans

The 7DII is not really in a class of it's own. It is just barely catching up.

In reply to:

fakuryu: Comparing RAWs at daylight and low light even at just ISO800 vs the K3, K50, D7100, XT1, X100T, that Canon sensor is still lagging behind especially with the chroma noise. Wished that the K5II or K5IIs was also in the comparator since the lowlight high ISO performance of that 16mp sensor is sweet.

Actually comparing ISO6400 RAW of the 7D2 and the D7100, the Toshiba sensor holds more detail, has better control of the chroma noise and also has a finer grain.

In reply to:

LF Photography: As a Pentax user who's switching to Nikon, I agree with the overall ratings of this review.
Yes, the K-3 is better than the D7100. No doubt about it. It's IBIS makes every prime lens a low-light marvel, it's rugged build and weather sealing is leaps and bounds ahead of Nikon, it's selectable AA filter is revolutionary, and the 8 FPS make the K-3 a better choice for sports.
BUT...the severe lack of 3rd party support for Pentax, combined with it's sub-par Flash system and video capabilities that were INTENTIONALLY crippled (low quality video codec, no focus peaking and no IBIS in video) make the D7100 a better choice in the long run. Especially if you plan to use your camera for anything other that amateur work. Going (semi)pro with Nikon is a lot easier. I learned that the hard way.

I just wish someone had told me this before I invested so much money in Pentax gear...

Well...

*Pentax has a sophisticated AF system as well specially starting from the K5II, it just handles differently than Canikon (I sometimes shoot Canikon as well)
*The K3 has no real issues with the flash, a lot of professionals use manual flash anyway and Pentax probably has the only weather sealed flash in the market AFAIK
*Would a 3rd party bag really affect your decision to buy a camera?
*Nikon actually crippled 3rd party lenses AF with their FW
*Pentax actually covers 8mm to 560mm lens ranges

so, what is all the misinformation about?
