On Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 Review preview (390 comments in total)
In reply to:

oldfogey: Either I'm blind or DPR has missed the most significant advance that this camera represents. The high ISO RAW files from the FZ-1000 are almost as good as the best m4/3 cameras, are significantly better than those of the Sony RX-10 and are dramatically better than those of the Nikon V3. If this really is the same 1" sensor that Sony put into the RX-10, Panasonic know something about signal processing that Sony/Nikon did not.
DPR's also claims that the Sony lens is sharper than the Panasonic's. If so the test images shot with the Sony must be a bit out of focus.

no your not blind , the first camera I put side by side was the pentax k3 at iso 6400 ,and it stacks up well, also wish dpr would answer my previous question ? its not real difficult.

In reply to:

SRHEdD: The eye opening on the new camera looks to be substantially smaller than the NEX6. Can you speak to that? To some of us wearing glasses, that's a concern.

I was in a shop yesterday playing with both and never picked up on that , in fact I couldn't tell the difference between the 2 as for evf res also.

white shower curtain is better to shoot through.

On Pentax K-3 Review preview (498 comments in total)
In reply to:

Donnie G: Since I've actually used a friend's K-3 on several occasions during the last few months, I feel I can sum up the camera thusly: The Pentax K-3 is a handsome, well built, responsive and quick handling DSLR that is well worth a serious look by anyone buying a DSLR for the first time or up grading from a lesser kit. However, those same positive traits are also available in the Canon 70D and Nikon D7100 cameras. Therefore, I don't see any real incentive for owners of those competitive models to jump over to the Pentax. I genuinely like the K-3, but the camera simply doesn't offer any significant advantage over my Canon kit that would make me want to trade systems. Being as good as the other guys just isn't going to win many battles in today's enthusiast/prosumer marketplace.

Great review DPR!

the k3 is in another class for studio work tethered to a hd screen for instant preview via hdmi cable.

can anyone answer this ? is the lens 200mm when shooting at a distance of 2 meters like a prime on ff, or 200mm at infinity ? like your common zoom.

On Pentax K-3 preview (961 comments in total)
In reply to:

Zvonimir Tosic: Regarding lack of tilting screen: I see that this may be seen as a drawback. But lets think again, like guys at Pentax: at least it seems they think twice about every gizmo others introduce without a second thought.
If a camera can be controlled comfortably from any distance via smartphone, which almost everyone has, and have a live preview too — then what's the point making a rugged, weather-proof camera that has a weakest part in its tilting screen while the screen substitute/extension is in your pocket?
I don't say it's best solution, but is tilting screen any better?

the k7,k5 already streams live view hdmi out for studio work.
hope the K3 remains the same ?

no evf, awkward for people that need reading glasses.
