vscd: Monopols are always bad. Those are really BAD news ;(

@Zeisschen

Funny I just upgraded my 4 year old Mac Mini to OS X El Capitan for free. My Mac Book Pro is next.

Ben O Connor: As usual; whenever you buy a windowsphone, you invest for usefulness. The thing you purchase "helps you".
On Android and especially in Apple when you buy a thing, it add more time as a prisoner in consumer dungeons! Your apple app is not there... Your android things has to back to main screen...

Keep enjoying my 1520 Lumia. ;)

Keep telling yourself that.

Priaptor: I am pretty amazed at the Apple fans (and I happen to be one, but am not married to Apple) berate Windows and their new products. Granted, Microsoft has had a questionable past, however, those of you old enough to remember, even with Jobs, Apple also had a questionable past.

Microsoft IS getting their act together. Their newest products are sold out. Quite frankly, if it were not for the entrenched ecosystem of their apps on iOS, they would be facing more competition from Microsoft than they currently are. Microsoft is waking up, have indeed released some fantastic products over the last month and the cross platform capabilities of Windows 10 IS BETTER than iOS and El Capitan. Windows 10 still has some work to do before I can truly embrace it in a "tablet" format BUT it is very close.

While I am not calling for the demise of Apple or its entrenched user base, Microsoft is making great headway

What you're saying here is the same kind of kool-aids MS has been feeding its audience for years. "Vista is the greatest ever! It's going to change the world!".

And the cycle repeats.

mickeybphoto: Reading about this 20mm it seems impressive. I've been saving for a Nikon 20mm f/1.8 and thought this lens would be showing up soon. Seeing it now made me sure of my purchase of the Nikon. Big factor for me, no filter on the Sigma. Sorry but I like my front element covered, no matter how many coatings they put on it. I checked it out on Sigma's site. No filters. Nikon lens is less anyway and between 1.4 and 1.8. Bah!

^ This. Are you shooting in splashing salt water or blowing sand?

donCortizone: My God, the whining.

Anybody here drive anything but a 1977 Ford Pinto? If you do, you're wasting your money, you arrogant rich bastards!

People were b*ing about Canon's 11-24 because it costs three large. Sometimes you gotta let it go.

@HowaboutRAW Yesterday I saw you replying to just about every comment here, and you're at it again today. Fanboy much?

enenzo: Perfect! Can't wait to buy this one. Just what I was waiting for.

I just love my A7 and Sony I love you... and yes! I'm really a 100% fan boy. Who can be anything else at this moment in time. Love it! :-)

Sony is just making so many fantastic products. And are truly the leader in innovation and future thinking. After years teaming up with Canon I'm now in love with my A7 the 4 of my Sony cameras (RX-100, NEX-6, A6000 and A7).

What a ride the last 4 years has been. Keep it coming Sony! I'm yours 100% ;-)

Smh

Sirandar: If Pana and Oly want to make "Pro" lenses they need to know what kind of pros they are targetting and realize they are competing against their own 40-150mm lenses which usually can do the job. I love my OMD-E5 to death but if I was really making my living with it I probably would be forced to used FF, if only because my customers would expect it. Thankfully I am free of the bondage of actually trying to sell photography.

Take home message .... there is not much point making 1000$ plus pro lenses for M4/3. The rich want more prestige cameras and the middle that loves and supports M4/3 cant justify the price when the 40-150 is only 149$

If the Oly primes I wanted dipped below the 400$ mark I would buy them tomorrow (12mm and 75mm). That is the price these primes should be.

"The optically best Olympus lenses shame Nikon and Canon."

LMAO. No, not even close.

Paul Kersey Photography: it's interesting how Nikon continues to roll out a dying line of cameras; the DSLR.

Seems less dead than mirrorless.

beavertown: The worst investment ever made by Tameron. Who owns EOS-M?

Even the population of the unwanted Nikon 1 system is much higher than the EOS-M.

So do I. Plus plenty of people in Japan, making it one of the top selling mirrorless in the country. Just because us M owners aren't loud and obnoxious like some mirrorless fanboys here, doen't mean we don't exist.

Oh by the way, now I know why people with poor math skills go for m43. You gotta be quite a piece of work if you can't multiply something by 1.5 or 1.6.

I see that you're reaching for the 'reach' defence. Are things going slow in the m43 world? Thought you guys would be scrambling to find some kind of bandage fix for your EVFs getting burnt by the sun.

At least you don't have to times two to arrive at the effective aperture. Unlike what you're shooting with.

topstuff: I find it hard to conceal my contempt and disappointment for a camera company that has more resources than any other, to offer such a weak and cynical offering in mirrorless to its customers.

They are abusing their brand and cynically expecting people to buy something inferior by design, just because of who they are and the distribution they have at their disposal.

In many ways I'm pleased that the M is so unsuccessful. Hopefully it will force Canon to take the market more seriously, make a better effort, and so produce something much better for the marketplace.

Then we all benefit.

What you need, is a shrink.

It's, as in 'it is', not its.

Lapkonium: Chinese company – check. Imitating apple's product name, looks of advertising materials, and gadget's appearance (iPod touch) – check. High specifications, unreasonably low price – check. Now, it's evident that something was saved upon. Most likely it will look and feel cheap, fail and disintegrate within months.

Armchair commentator who has no idea what he's talking about - check.

In reply to:

TimT999: The level of copying that's going on with the Mi Pad and all DP can say is "aimed at Apple's iPad Mini. " Let's at least be honest here, this is a level of theft that probably won't be allowed outside China.

Fairly common in China of course. You go into any big market area in Beijing or Shanghai and the booths are full of knock-offs of international brands. You can get a great price on a real, authentic "Rolex" that falls apart after a month.

I assume the hardware for the Mi Pad isn't that level of cheap crap. But the real issue is the software interface. If it's standard Android, it could very well take market share away from Samsung. The Mi Pad could definitely undercut their tablets.

I don't think it competes as much with Apple regardless of Mi Pad's flagrant copying. Many of the folks in China who have the money for Apple won't want to own a brand that screams knock-off.

"You can get a great price on a real, authentic "Rolex" that falls apart after a month."

I actually have a knock off "Rolex" and it's been keeping very accurate time for the last six years.

In reply to:

Ian SS: The cheaper 10-18mm EFS I see the point, but why 16-35mm IS? Wide angle lenses will not be affected as much due to hand shaking, I would rather have bigger f-stop.

An Olympus camera that's not flawless? Shocking!
