A desperate me too attempt. Nikon trying to protect it's turf and in process losing on both ends.

On R0150257 photo in dpreview review samples's photo gallery (1 comment in total)

Is that distortion at the edges?
I am seeing stretched corners. I thought that 24mm LX3 lens does that. Or the ones wider than that.

what_i_saw: Can it be carried in jeans pocket?
That is crucial to my usage.

I today walked into the shop and tried a GRD IV.
It slipped easily in my Jeans Pocket.
My next camera will be Ricoh GR.

topstuff: It's all a bit "meh" is'nt it?

Is it just me or is it really hard to get enthusiastic about these shapeless black plastic lumps?

Good IQ is a given. But then you get great IQ with a NEX, or M4/3 or whatever.

Other manufacturers are starting to make cameras which are covetable. They are nice objects to own.

Canon don't seem to get this. All their products are so darn plasticky and dull and generally hard to love. At the leisure end of the market, this matters IMO.

I think what you really want to buy is some Jewellery. :-)

On Photojournalist unexpectedly documents domestic violence news story (269 comments in total)

"In addition, she has been told by law enforcement officers that physically intervening, 'would have likely only made the situation worse, endangering me, and further endangering [the victim]'.

She might have taken the little girl away from the scene. Or would that have endangered someone in some way? Honestly I have very little respect for such photographers. Hope she enjoys her little "Sunshine" of attention.

I shudder to think what negative effect this will have on the little one. Why people have kids when they can't provide a proper home environment for them?

In reply to:

what_i_saw: I am not happy with the size of this thing. I might as well go and buy a Smallish DSLR instead of this one.

Video is never high on my list. And I am a Prime lens guy. You call this is A SMALL increase in body size?
The very core of the Mirrorless premise was smaller bodies. This one looks like it is on steroids.

I am happy with my trusty old E-PL1. Only lust for that autofous assist lamp on this cam. Boxy E-PL1 anyday for me.

In reply to:

Albino_BlacMan: Now how does this work? Does everyone get a new camera for free? Can you send you camera in to have the sensor swapped for free? Or are the "beta testers" SOL and forced to pay for the new sensor?

So are they going to change the sensor in the existing cameras free of cost?
That is the most important question.

On First Impressions: Using the Fujifilm X-Pro1 article (228 comments in total)

Well I can't buy it. Wish it all the success. There has to be something for people who can't have a Leica. This I guess will be the closest.
Kudos to Fuji for churning up the field.
Canon and Nikon, learn something.
