On Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF7 flips for selfies article (370 comments in total)

Specs aside, it looks absolutely ridiculous when the LCD is flipped up. Like someone taped a TV to a Nikon FM2.

On Fujifilm announces X-A2 with selfie-friendly LCD article (132 comments in total)

This new eye-autofocus sounds like the most interesting thing. The 'selfie swivel' doesn't appeal to me in the least.

Nice. Samsung bringing their A game.

A lot of people are missing the point here. An f/2.8 standard zoom is an integral piece of kit for professional photographers. Even if Fuji's version is bigger or more expensive than another system, the point is that they're closer to having a complete system. So professionals who have dipped their toe in the water with primes can now comfortably use this as their main system if they want to. On its own it may not be the best value, but as part of a system it will get the job done.

Me like. I hope we see more lightweight telephoto primes in future.

Nice to see this brings out the civil discussion as always...

Forget the cameras, I only just noticed The Beatles were in the new studio comparison tool.

Love them! Great work.

Great video. I laughed at the aborted sports banter.

This series with the X-T1 and NX1 has been pretty informative. It would be cool to see some similar videos for the A7 and EM-1.

In reply to:

marc petzold: why is that these images turned out bad, i meant...the ppl are handling it here are so called pro's...aren't they? i don't see a medium format advantage from these shots, but noisy compositions - no offence, guys..well...you can do much better, can you? i meant - you can do this with any APS-C/DX DSLR or DSLM...
these examples.

Someone didn't read the article.

On Sony Alpha 7 II real-world sample gallery posted article (239 comments in total)

Interesting. Maybe it's the heavy NR applied in these photos, but I much prefer the output of the A7s.

On Not dead yet: Sony announces three A-mount lenses article (123 comments in total)
In reply to:

VirtualMirage: DPR, I feel that was a poor choice of words to say that the A-mount is "Not Dead Yet". It labels the brand with a negative stigma, one I don't think is warranted. Your headline implies that A-mount is dying or will be dead instead of reassuring that A-mount is alive and the focus on the mount is on fewer models that is focusing on a higher end clientele.

As we have seen so far, their product release cycles have not been longer. The release between the A77 and A77II is far shorter than it was from the A700 to A77. We could assume it will be the same with the A99's successor too. When there are fewer products to release, there will naturally be fewer announcements.

Now it would be nice to see more lens or flash announcements. This latest announcement is a good sign.

You've upset a few precious petals this week, DPR.

Really like #10. Great job.

This + some manual primes would be absolutely great.

Sweet, thanks Fuji.

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX100 Review preview (876 comments in total)

Thanks for the review! I still really like this camera, it's just too expensive for me to justify buying as a backup.

Can't have a gallery of award winners without hecklers, I guess.

No, but I imagine the day they do some hipsters will be really pleased. "It's like raw food man, better for your soul!"
