ajamess: Touchscreen, eh? I don't know how the entrenched photography community will react, but seems like a pretty cool addition when they are offering phase detect AF in Live View.
Seems being unbiased is an issue for DPR. I see for the first time that DPR likes Canon. Should the 70D be contrasted with the 5200 not the D7100? Why the issue with the LCD - clearly the D7100 LCD is better but that took an age to correct. The number of MPs is much higher but not greened. Why is articulated LCD and Touch preferrable to a more usable LCD? Stoned? Biased? Why the downplaying of the functions of the D7100?
NEX 5 is still a good camera and with discounts even better plus a few adapters and very cheap legacy lenses - even its video is good. There's not a lot in IQ between these cameras. The cheaper C3 does very well against the 5n. Not a lot to lose if you don't want the extras. These cameras trash any compacts and rival many DSLRs. Pity Canon is not in there having a bash...
Dave Deacon: From what I've seen of LM's photography it looks good. Family and famous people. Given her privileged position, this forms an important part of rock history.
I never liked PM. Never met him but the media seemed to favour JL. This was backed up by the music with JL's gritty edgey deep music against PM's ditty stuff. Some excellent tunes mind but they lack depth. So, the media's view is backed imv by the music. I could not imagine PM writing Imagine or a Day in the Life. Mind don't forget George - Something is truly excellent among others. If you can, see the Concert for George. See too the coldness between PM and the brilliant George Brown and the Monty Python sketches. Could never imagine PM getting into bed with Monty Python...
