On Panasonic Lumix DMC-G7 real-world samples article (91 comments in total)

I'm seeing "grey" results overall. This could be due to the day's light.
Did DPR try to vary the Jpeg choices and see what came out?

Oops, Ugly.

On A Compact PEN: Olympus Stylus SH-2 Hands-on article (150 comments in total)

Odd that there's no acessory port : this is crying out for the existing add-on EVFs.

" This might imply that there's something extra built-in. We haven't mentioned anything"
= finally a camera that will also make the tea.

The thumbrest looks very nice.

It would be nice if they brought out this 42.5mm in a kit with some new retro body...

On Olympus OM-D E-M5 II First Impressions Review preview (1392 comments in total)

There are a couple of comments in this review which point to the reviewer being somewhat mentally handicapped.

Next!

On Sigma dp0 Quattro announced with 14mm F4 lens article (137 comments in total)

DP1 is already used as a nice landscape camera,
this new thing sounds very interesting indeed!

So instead of paying salaries (and looming pensions) they will pay them, and others, for photos.
Is this a big deal? Change of arrangement, that's all.
What am I missing?

On Nikon D5500 adds touchscreen and flat picture profile article (210 comments in total)

A thousand dollars with kit zoom? =/= entry level.

On Sony announces US pricing for full-frame Alpha 7 II article (177 comments in total)

Prices comparable to release prices of the first A7, which is encouraging.

Surely "close to i's chest" is the term ... who wrote this?

Surely technical cameras were always mirrorless?
This is just the upgrading of LiveView and WiFi of existing tech camera backs ... isn't it?
Not a new thing, but Sony's new sensor makes LiveView suddenly work right.
This sensor is appearing in everything!

It must be a rare occasion that a closing factory is good news : but this one IS good news.

On Hands-on with the Pentax K-S1 article (344 comments in total)

This looks almost opposite to Ricoh's traditional ergonomic plain black styling.
Maybe a bit ... ugly ... does it come in seventy different colours? If so, good.

Somehow I don't think they really carried blunt reenactment weapons of dubious provenance. Very poor.

On Leica T (Typ 701) First Impressions Review preview (2251 comments in total)

You wrote ; " I suspect that really, this is a camera for Raw shooters"
Surely the opposite is true : a fashion item for rich and mostly careless jpeg-wifi uploaders.

On Mountain Magic: Shooting in the Lofoten Islands article (73 comments in total)

Poorly written piece, guaranteed decent photo location.

Direct link | Posted on Jul 14, 2014 at 18:26 UTC as 37th comment

Is this "cheap" enough to compete against the two existing superzoom tele lenses?
