  • Honestly, don't know why people care what this guy says.
  • Commented on Canon EOS 7D Mark II Review preview

    I have always been a big Canon fan for the majority of my life. Theyused to produce some of the best SLR bodies and lenses. But times have changed and other manufacturers seem to be improving...

  • I bought it from Amazon, really didn't care for Sony's image quality. Even though sensors is technically better than Nikon 1, I prefer Nikon's metering and colors. At the end of the day it's the ...
  • Replied in Yes
    Yes. I have owned each generation of Nikon 1. The J3 was a big improvement over my former V1 and the J4 is the very best Nikon 1 canera I have owned. The J4 is better at high ISO, has better ...
  • Please don't quote DXO, I will only accept arguments from people with real world experiences. If DXO had any validity people would throw away their Canon cameras due to the supposedly inferior ...
  • A month back I bought the Olympus EM10 and Nikon J4 from Amazon. I think what shocked me was how little difference there was between both sensors. Olympus overstates their ISOs so all things ...
  • I guess I just like the Nikon signature look better. It's about the overall image, not just pixel peeping or testing charts. I think a lot of this has to do with Nikons meter which blows away ...
  • No it wasn't a matter of learning the Olympus, I just don't care for the rendering. Whenever I am on the m43 forums here and other places I notice the same thing, the images look very digital, I ...
  • I had the Nikon J3, loved it, got bored sold it. Decided to try Olympus. Guess what ? IQ compared to Nikon is horrible. Olympus metering sucks, it's all over the place, the focusing is fast ...
  • I picked up the J4 recently for $399 on sale (same sensor as V3). I also picked up the Olympus OMD-EM10 and Sony NEX 6 from Amazon (thanks to Amazon's amazing return policy. I ended up keeping...

  • I agree the lens selection is quite nice and mature with both systems. Sony does color really well and I like their deep tones. I dunno I though about returning to m43rds but in the end I think...

  • I read Kirks blog, but sometimes Kirk should just stick to taking pictures as he doesn't seem to understand supply and demand. Mirrorless is still not a proven markert, I hardly ever see a ...
  • I do disagree about your one point regarding DR, any camera on the market today has suffient DR for any situation, and a good photographer (not camera) is the difference between someone who can...

  • @rrr-hhh, I do understand I myself have been on the fence on my next SLR purchase and I'm all over the map from Nikon FF or DX, or Canon FF ad APS-C. I had an Olympus OMD EM5, just never cared for...

  • I hear the aging sensor argument all the time and yet I find the most attractive pictures (subjective, I know) still come from canon cameras whether it be on the thousands of posts from POTN or...

  • Jesus, those are some absolutely stunning pictures. They have the same look as Full Frame if you know what I mean.
  • I hate when company's do this. Basically they are saying; you know how our 1.2 lens has crappy bokeh, well here we fixed it by adding a filter, all you need to do is give us $500 more and your...
