Thank you for posting this. It led to me purchasing the Panasonic LX100... as I was really on the fence between these two cameras.

I do have a question.... when is your D810 review finally going to be finished?

It is the Oompa Loompa Orchestra.

InTheMist: Kind of a major screw-up, Apple!

Why are you blaming Apple? No other manufacturer (Canon, Nikon, Panasonic, Fuji, Olympus, etc) seems to have this problem.

I've really wanted to like Epson, but every printer that I've bought from them failed due to head clogs. Their remedy is to run through a cleaning cycle that decimates the costly inks. So... I'll be staying with Canon.

On Fujifilm X100T Review preview (668 comments in total)

mgatov: How is this better than the older Sony RX-1?

I viewed the Fuji vs. the Sony because they are both 35mm small fixed lens cameras. The image quality of the sony blows the fuji away. The fact that the Sony is older is actually a testament to the quality of the design and not a positive for the Fuji. I don't see the JPEGs of the Fuji as being nicer. I've never run out of battery power during a day of shooting with the sony. WIFI with massive gigabytes of data is plain silly compared to just downloading off of the SD card. The add on view screen on the sony works perfectly for me. Since ultimately it is image quality that counts... I can't see where the Fuji is superior. If I need fast focusing, there are other cameras that out perform either of these by miles.

On Olympus OM-D E-M5 II Review preview (815 comments in total)

mgatov: Maybe I'm doing something wrong... but... when I view the RAW files for High Res and D810, the D810 is clearly superior in resolution, contrast, and color.

I'm basically a simple person. I'm just going to compare the two images on the comparator without doing a bunch of manipulations and resizes. Realistically, when I go through my workflow, I take the base RAW or the JPEG and adjust the exposure, black point, sharpness, etc. For my usage, the D810 produces clearly superior files.

I was looking at the comparator in the review.

Because the vast majority of them were Nikon and Canon.

Tastefully done! I like it.

I think what happened was Hasselblad looked at Leica and said: we can do better. Leica creates special limited editions by changing a bit of paint, or adding a different type of leather or adding an engraving and then charging more for the product. Hasselblad said: well, let's let the customer decide which fopperies they want their camera built with. You want carbon fiber? you got it. Walrus tusk? no problem. Jewels? here you go.

People are willing to pay a premium for the red dot on a panasonic. What Hasselblad didn't realize that charging 3x to 5x the price over the Sony was too much of an insult to swallow.

For about the same price, you can get the Sony RX-1 which is FF. They are about the same size.

I don't understand all this negativity towards the D750. It looks like a wonderful mid-range FF camera. It is an evolutionary product. Kudos to Nikon!

I was hoping for the 'Tsar Nicholas Commemorative Edition' with an ermine pouch, Faberge' designed shutter button, and mahogany storage box.
