Good work DPR ...and man, these posters on here have no notion of personal opinion or one mans trash is another man's treasure.

Those that use m43 complain about it, those that don't want one for their system...

In reply to:

arhmatic: The image quality is comparable to $100 camera.
But it's allright, it's waterproof, right?

Actually, if you can find a Panasonic ts20, if may be better image quality for under $100.

In reply to:

Anepo: What is the POINT of having a camera with interchangeable lenses that is worse than SEVERAL compact camera's with non nterchangeable lenses? This is basicly a TOY mirrorless rather than a REAL high quality mirrorless like the gx1, om-d, epl-5 e-pm1 e-pm2 & such.

To take photos maybe...???...

Does this new stuff make AF more accurate for static subjects?

In reply to:

happypoppeye: EM-5 is $1000 ...this is an under $1000 list. Ok, so its close, but how is a $1000 body with no lens a best ILC or SLR?

I looked into it before commenting ...so are you asking yourself that flipmac?

The price is right in the article ...thats what they are going off of. ...and DPR is owned by Amazon, shouldn't they know their own price?

If the EM-5 is $1000 why is it on a list for the best under $1000 ...and the only one that is over $1000 with a lens.

In reply to:

schaki: I find it somewhat laughable that Fujifilm have copied the "M" from Leica rangefinders at the same time as using the M for their most simple model which in fact should be for the X-Pro1.
So what is the next joke from Fujifilm? Probably that the jpegs with badly smudged foliage still remain unchanged from previous models in the X-series? At least i might guess so unless they've some other bad card to play on..
I could have considered the X20 if it not had been for that very irritating flaw.
At least they've got the tilt-lcd right with the X-M1. Hope to see options with low NR included as well and I might test one.

Sounds like someone has a very big bank account and a very small brain...

sdribetahi: You all need to get over the viewfinder. Believe it or not, not everyone takes pictures at eye level. You should try it once, it actually works without sticking the thing to your face.

The majority of old men have closed minds ...won't try anything new and think the way they have been shooting most of their lives is THE best way because, well, thats what they have done.

On Pentax announces Q7 with larger 12MP BSI CMOS sensor article (232 comments in total)
In reply to:

Pangloss: Even at a lower price, the only significant market for this camera is Japan, it's not likely to gain traction anywhere else. There is no market anymore for these $500 toys in the rest of the world. Pentax and fanboys can argue that the IQ is excellent, but in the end it's the size and the color combinations that matter for the Japanese market. For the rest of the world, this camera just doesn't cut it at this price level, as it has to compete with many other compact and mirrorless cameras with better IQ and better feature sets. A NEX-F3 will spank this Q7 in terms of IQ at any ISO for the same $500, whereas the LX7 for half the price will easily provide more flexibility and more features in a slightly larger package.
Conclusion: nice but FAIL.

If you gave me the choice between an LX7, NEX-F3 or Q7 for $500 and I had to pick one I would pick the Q7 ...and I don't live in Japan. Huh, imagine that.

So, to sum up to this point...

- Pulitzer is spelled wrong
- People think that local newspapers still need paid full time photographers
- wow, unions still exist ...I think its time to kill off the rest
- People think that although a paper is bleeding money and about to go under they still need to keep a full photography staff
- People are still misquoting the CEO of Flickr by using a statement out of context (by the way: a reason to keep writers and fire photogs)

...and a lot more stupid stuff.

In reply to:

SunnyFlorida: Buying this lens for a 1" aptima sensor camera is like buying a $200 bottle of Dom Perignon to wash down your $1.99 big mac.

I don't see a problem with someone liking Big Macs and Don Perignon at the same time.

A lot of posts about the price ...well, yes, relative to the "normal" user of the system and the prices of the bodies and alternative lenses, it is very expensive but this is an f/1.2 lens and relative to previously released 1.2's it is priced fairly cheaply. Other than the knock off type companies who produces an autofocus f/1.2 lens today? Only Canon I believe (50 and 85).

I would almost say that many of the "too expensive" posts are being written by people who don't know what they are actually seeing here ...other than an expensive 85.

kadardr: WE tend to forget that there is a sony nex 7 which is a much better camera ( with the new lenses it IS fact). A bit stealthy though. Pretty against 'profi"??

What new lenses are you talking about? ...especially to compare to the 75 1.8, 45 1.8, 17 1.8 as well as the 20 1.7 and 25 1.4.

I still use PSE ver 1 ...works perfectly fine. Anyone who upgrades every time Adobe comes out with a new version is, in my opinion, an idoit or has alot of money to waste ...figure I'll pick up the latest version and I'm good for life or until someone else comes out with something better ...a monthly subscription, you gotta be kidding me.
