MrTaikitso: Ooooh! DPreview featuring rumours and leaks now! Hmm, interesting.
Andy: If they had, they wouldn't be able to publish the rumor.
As xda-developers pointed out, pictures are much better in the burst mode. Could you Dpreview / DxO guys test that?http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2195895
zxaar: Is there any details about camera lens available. That is how wide to tele it is in terms of 35mm. Also details of aperture would help. Does anybody know this.
Well, the max. aperture is F/2.4 and the focal length is 4mm, hard to say what it is in 35mm terms.
Double post, sorry.
I like the Instagram-ish look of the image.
stratplaya: Another left wing group trying to intimidate a business.
Spoken like a true Don. :-D
Roman Korcek: Does this test take into account the HTC One bug where when you set the ISO value manually the HTC One does not use it as an actual value but as an upper limit instead, also writing the upper limit into the EXIF data instead of the actual value used?http://www.heise.de/foto/meldung/Smartphone-Kamera-Bug-HTC-One-schreibt-falsche-EXIF-Daten-1827489.html
Thank you for the clarification.

So Sigma will offer a redesigned 30mm F/1.4 in addition to the new 35mm F/1.4? Is that not overkill?
SigmaChrome: The Sigma DP2 Merrill.
This is a pointless list because it doesn't list all the cameras produced in 2012. Anyway, the best camera is pretty much always the one you bought yourself.
Nah, that's just the one you could afford.
Hubertus Bigend: Is it just me, or is my impression correct that since Amazon's acqusition of dpreview even the most popular cameras take longer and longer to get reviewed and more and more reviews only come in trickles? If I still was the "early adopter" of camera tech I kind of used to be for some time, dpreview could not exert much influence on my decisions anymore these days.
It's just you. Previously, there have been say two reviews per month ona average. Now we have a new article every other day, and a review once every 14 days on average.
Ron Poelman: Ditto.A Sony would have provided dry knees !Swing out screen, in-camera HDR and focus peaking.
Was going to comment on exactly the same thing. "Fortunately" (for Sony perhaps :-) ) Canon does not consider such features useful at all. Just leaves me wondering why people put up with it.
Sam Carriere: I am sure this is a good competent camera, but Nikon and Canon just don't seem to get it. The models that capture people's imagination these days are the ones that try to reimagine the same-old same-old -- like the Fuji X10 or the Sony RX 100 or even the NEX series, for all their shortcomings. I can't conceive of where the market is for this good, competent camera, in a field already so crowded with other good, competent cameras.And by the way, does anyone ever actually USE an articulated screen?
"And by the way, does anyone ever actually USE an articulated screen?"All the time.
Vernatropius: Compared to EM-5 and Nex- 5n at ISO 3200-6400; NX 210 is utterly Garbage. How Sad- Bad JPEG Engine.
@babola: You are basically implying that the scoring system accomodates at most 100 cameras.
Roman Korcek: Funny, I like the Day 2 "cold and dull" image the most. Feels like a fresh early spring morning, chilly but full of promise for the day ahead.
Actually, now that I see it on a calibrated monitor it looks dull. Needs a bit more saturation to get the feeling I got when I saw the image on a wide-gamut uncalibrated display.
jorg14: Not really my shots. :-)

Rick Knepper: What bothers me about Mr. Cicala's article being posted on DPR is that he can't be held out as an objective reviewer. My first question: why wasn't this testing done during the 5D II heyday? Answer: because Mr. Cicala is human and it wouldn't make sense business-wise to "expose" the poor AF performance of the 5D2 and hurt rental sales (it's not like most of us didn't already know this anyway). Now that Canon has released some whizbang replacement cameras, Mr. Cicala obv iously feels safe in discussing the 5D2's rather significant limitations
Mr. Cicala certainly has the right to post a review on his own website and is appropriate there but DPR should pull their head out and recognize the rather significant conflict of interest inherent here.
"My first question: why wasn't this testing done during the 5D II heyday?"Wait, you expect this testing to be done for each and every camera model?
TheSummerYears: No Image Stabilization for Sony on such a long lens? Pft.
The current version has in-lens optical stabilization. What a crappy move to remove it in the new version.
DotCom Editor: Truth in advertising fail: A maximum magnification ratio of 1:2.9 is NOT a macro.
Anything above 0.25x magnification is considered a macro lens, AFAIK. Usefulness aside.
