Dougbm_2: How is this ultra wide?

Not really. Just wide. Compare with 10-20mm lens = 15mm wide or sigma 8-16mm = 12mm wide

marike6: Tokina builds what could likely be another of their legendary, pin sharp UWA zooms but with a faster max aperture and people complain. Pointless they say. Another reason I stopped caring about this site long ago.

Well it's not UWA just wide (FF equiv = 21-30mm)

Some of the nicest images in a DPR review yet.
Particularly the cloud over the mountain. Very nice tones and colours.

aftab: I see lots of never-going to buy-jealous kind are talking about how ugly this camera looks. I will agree that this camera is not the best looking Leica. But the prize for ugly looking cameras should go to Sony. Forget DSLR, Sony can at least look at Pentax, Panasonic, Olympus, Samsung and Fuji to to learn how to make a decent looking camera.

Hey you are right this camera does look ugly!

Johannes Zander: I have a D800, two V1 and a V2. Half a year ago I bought a E-M1 and I am very happy with it. Also I must say that E-M1 focusing and tracking is not as good as with the V2. But the choices of lenses for the m43 is much bigger than for Nikon 1 cameras.
The major andvantage is the firmware upgrading for the E-m1. It becomes a much better and more versatile camera with each firmware upgrade. And the Nikon 1 cameras, not. Nikon could make them much better with firmware upgrades.

It's the Fuji experience! : )

Dumb idea!

As the images show it still has the limitations of a small sensor no matter how good it is otherwise ie: large depth of field, Hi ISO noise.

In reply to:

anu l: after reading the review, I think this camera deserved a gold rating.

some of the compromises done are natural & rather deliberate, to keep it within it's category..... not something like "features gone wrong".

at least from the reviews on dpreview the canon T6s/i "lack a lot" compared to D5500.

Yes. Live view without showing the true exposure isn't actually live view and is almost useless. Nikon really needs to fix this on all their cameras as well as providing a decent buffer (why so stingy?).

Skipper494: Can never understand why people think that a third party knows a camera manufacturer's RAW algorithm better than the camera manufacturer and, of course, the latter's converter comes free.

GirchyGirchy . I disagree. NX2 is good just very slow. But using too much shadow loses too much colour. D-lghting though is hopeless. But used gently it is much better than ACR. Just save jpg and finish off in Photoshop.

Umutsezerkoc: Which one should I buy for all-around type of photography? I shoot everything! Street, landscape, sports.. etc.
Sony a6000
Nikon D7200
Canon 70D
I shoot videos lot too, but, touch screen doesn't matter so much, I just want the best quality and speed. Or should I wait for a new camera maybe 80d or a7000/a6100? If you want, you can recommend me another camera under $1500.

As you shoot videos a lot the 70D is the one or you. Also for sports too. Pair it with a 15-85 and 70-200L IS and you are good to go. Exactly what I recommended to a friend. He is very happy!
Start with the 18-135 stm if you can't afford those. Better for video too.

In reply to:

T3: Is Canon ever going to produce a camera that can do panorama sweep? I really enjoy this feature, especially in a compact camera. So many other cameras have this feature, but not Canon. I guess when it comes to panorama sweep, Canon sees it as impossible.

Agree.
