On Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II Review preview (634 comments in total)

I think many non FF hobbyists must be discounting Canon from their decision-making process by now. Canon's sensor technology is becoming an embarrasment. This is a real shame, since it seems to be the only significant weakness. But you would not buy a film camera that cold only take crappy film, would you?
Get it together Canon. You don't want to be the next Kodak, do you?

On Nikon D810 Preview preview (1071 comments in total)

You're not geting much more camera but you are expected to pay a much higher price. If Nikon had decided to sell this at 10% more than a D800 is currently selling for I believe they would ultimately have made more profit from photographers who would see a Nikon as more than Sony rebranders.
Let's face it, their recent cameras owe their success to a company other than Nikon. Also, if production is indeed moving to Thailand, this is a slap in the face for both their customers and their workers. Significantly reducing labour costs while significantly increasing prices is as cynical a move as one could expect from "The Great Maximiser of Profits". And if it took the Japanese Factory a while to get things running smoothly on such a technical camera, just how many problems are we going to see appearing with the new D810 from the workers still getting to grips with the coffee machine? I expect to see many many q.c. concerns very soon.
Nah.
I'll take a Japanese-made 800 instead.

shutterbud: I for one am disappointed by the performance of the A7S. 52,000 ISO is "moderately high"?
Can we please get real?
What I was hoping for was clas-leading stills up to 6,400 or 10,000. Who on earth needs higher? Instead, it seems you lose a lot of resolution for littel practical advantage.

Ah, so you expect to be shooting at 3,000,000 ISO an a Tv of 1/100,000 in twenty years? Or with an Av of f/0.3
We can dream.

On Am I missing something here? article (636 comments in total)

I've never seen the appeal of this line of cameras. And the price seems ludicrous. Nikon only make one camera which remotely appeals to me...the D7100, but their appalling customer service and quality control has turned me totally off the company.

On Leica T (Typ 701) First Impressions Review preview (2278 comments in total)
In reply to:

shutterbud: Well well well. Leica charge you a fortune for their "Optical Excellence" and it turns out to be smoke and mirrors. I was never likely to buy this camera but a tiny part of me wanted to be able to justify saving for it if the results were spectacular.
Now it looks like even more of a chuffing con.

I'm looking at the barell distortion and vignetting which are corrected in JPG. Not good enough for an eye-wateringly expensive lens.

On ISO320-P1000151 photo in dpreview review samples's photo gallery (1 comment in total)

I have to say, I'm not exactly blown away by these photographs. That's the best lens and the best body in the u4/3 format. They can do better than this

These pictures are insipid. Billing them as anything to do with immigrants' struggle is appalling.
The previous posts which are nothing more than a petty argument are embarassing.

Frank Petronio's comment displays a sick mind.
Apart from that, I was incredibly disappointed with the work after reading the introduction. It may as well have read
"Some guy goes out and takes a few landscape pictures for no reason".
To conflate these insipid images with the struggle for dignity and a better life does a dis-service to the both Immigrants and this website. And it took him five years to do it? Is this the best he got in five years? Give a decent PJ a week to do a real job of the assignment and come back to us DPR.
