Hmmm, now that's tempting... I didn't know there was a compact version of any flagship phone. I handled a friend's Z1 and found it ridiculously big for my taste. Now I may upgrade from my Xperia Acro S to a water resistant Z1 without sacrificing the size of the Acro S (which I find borderline acceptable size wise).

On Pentax K-3 Review preview (441 comments in total)

paulski66: Well, on the plus side, at least we won't have to read any more posts from all the Pentax fanboys complaining "Where's the K-3 review?" every time DPReview posts a review of any other camera.

The whining was well justified, in my opinion. DPR rushed the Df review in no time, just before the Christmas season. And it's not the only example...

Matt1645f4: I wouldn't touch a Sony phone i've had sony for years when they had ericsson at the end but now they are crap ive sent my Sony xperia t back 3 times with various faults i never had a prob with a Nokia or an iPhone the camera may be grea but if you cant make calls whats the point.......

I use an Xperia Acro S for over a year, which at the time of buying was the best dust and water resistant phone at the market (IP57 rating). So far it's faultless and it has take quite a beating, especially at the beach. It's rugged yet elegant and when it gets dirty I wash it at the tab. The camera is average, especially with today's standards, but its fine for me as I don't really have great expectations from a phone camera and I love tweeking my stupid little snapshots with Snapseed anyway...

On Mockups emerge of new Olympus OM-D 'OM-G' news story (331 comments in total)
In reply to:

Artistico: Surely you could have come up with a better and less obvious April fool's joke than that, DPreview? Not to mention a better photoshopped picture with the lens. And, as everyone(?) knows, the reason the old Zuiko lenses are so compact is the large film-to-flange distance of the old OM cameras. It simply wouldn't work on a body like that.

Oh well. Better than no joke, I guess. Kudos for trying. I'm sure some people were fooled.

I find Monty Python films hilarious...

Lol! Thankfully you didn't make a joke about a full frame Pentax. The Pentax audience would never forgive you...

Heie2: I'm a Pentax fan, and while I prefer the WG series, the first to allow RAW shooting will get my money.

Please. SOMEONE.

RAW. IN. AN. EVERYTHING-PROOF. P&S.

ANYBODY.

I'd also wait for a bigger sensor. Imagine an underwater LX7 or XZ2? It would be great.

I know very well what Ricoh is. As I know what is Toyota, Lexus etc. It's brand and badge management what I'm talking about. ;)

I'd find it equally ugly if I saw a General Electric badge at the back of a Nikon. Or a LG badge at the back of a Canon. Or a Sony badge at the back of a..... Oh , wait a minute...

"...will also be available as a complete set (without transport case) for € 44,999 € or US$ 59,900 (excl. VAT)*..." Oh come on! Somebody pays that much money and you don't offer a transport case for free? That's stingy beyond belief!

Oh I know why. It's a bit like a Toyota badge at the back of a Lexus, or a BMW badge at the back of a Rolls Royce. Sort of... But you get the idea.

In reply to:

KonstantinosK: In my opinion, the omission of the metering lever and the rethought of the autofocus point selection method, is a step backwards in ergonomics compared to the K-5.

Thanks for the input guys but I'm still not quite convinced. They replaced the metering mode lever with a lever that enables or disables the button on the mode dial. That option is trivial IMO compared to having immediate access to the metering mode, even if it's not used that often. As for the auto focus point selection, they could have kept the selector of the K-5 at thumb's reach and place the movie-stills lever somewhere else, maybe at the corner down and right. Anyway, all these are not THAT important. Just saying...

On Samsung NX30 real-world samples gallery news story (62 comments in total)
In reply to:

KonstantinosK: Many photos at 12800 ISO, and, is it me, or are they look very good and detailed?

But it's ISO 6400 and you can see so many hair. That one looks a bit blurry, maybe it needed faster shutter speed. Look at the other one with the girl eating at ISO 12800. There's quite some noise but you can almost count her eye lashes.

On Samsung NX mini First Impressions Review preview (519 comments in total)
In reply to:

Reinhard136: Even a mobile phone has a flash, all the convenience of a flip screen for selfies, and the convenience of fitting a flash for half your photos ..... either samsung are silly, have slipped or this is part of a clever master plan - like a version on its way with built in phone. That would fill a real niche, that samsung and sony have been playing around with. Put me down for one of those (but with flash please).

In the preview, it's stated THERE IS a built-in flash "nestled under the panel just above the lens mount". To me, it looks the built-in flash is in front of the camera, next to an auto-focus assist lamp. Go figure...

On Olympus OM-D E-M10 Review preview (269 comments in total)
In reply to:

turvyT: I have no particular interest either in this OM10 nor in the Pentax k3. But I'm curious about new cameras and like to be informed. K3 was announced almost half a year ago. OM10, less than two months. Still waiting for K3 review --or for Godot in this fully interesting exercise in surrealism by Dpreview. Personally I don't believe anymore in any of the excuses Dpreview has been producing about the lack of interest in the Pentax K3 by readers. I'm now convinced that under those foggy words of lame excuse there is only a lack of respect for people interested in new cameras and camera's technology.

ranger604, it doesn't need to be a subscription site for its readers to have an opinion about it. OBVIOUSLY!
