In reply to:

jukeboxjohnnie: FAIL !!!! No viewfinder which is expected among enthusiasts these days

This camera isn't targerted to enthusiasts.
It's a Rebel alternative.

On Canon to move camera production back to Japan article (108 comments in total)
In reply to:

extraone: the problem I see is not the QC but the work ethics.

out of all the asian countries, japan is the only country that has a very hard work ethic.

they live to work. all the rest work to live.

Don't worry. Canon products will be manufactured in factories located in Japan, manned by Vietnamese workers residing in Japan, who assembles components produced in China or Vietnam.
Canon is one of the leading companies that redefined "MADE IN JAPAN" for all of you.

In reply to:

Peiasdf: An exciting downgrade. Pretty soon all DSLR will be a downgrade from EVIL/mirrorless.

I actually want Canon and Nikon (and to some extend Pentax) to fail ASAP. Their continuous pumping out of low-end DSLRs that's not an upgrade of the previous model is taking money away from EVIL/mirrorless companies that could use the money to innovate even faster. Canon and Nikon are playing the role of Kodak, trying to prevent the rise of digital/EVIL/mirrorless.

If Canon and Nikon stopped their oligopoly on DSLRs, it will be SONY, PANA, and maybe SAMSUNG doing oligopoly on mirrorless.
And it would be far worse than Canikon's oligopoly. At least for now, we can choose between DSLRs and mirrorless.

Another fine product from Nikon that can't replace my D300.

taktak91: >So if you're one of those people that's still holding out for a replacement for the D300S... well, you might be looking at it.

If that's true, I'll have to shop elsewhere.

>The Pentax K3 is sort of like the D300S

Well, I got myself a K-5II recently.
As of now, I'm eyeing the K-3.
But I'm still holding out for a D300s replacement.

Those who require EVF and interchangeable lens buy GX7, and those who don't buy LX100.
Simple, isn't it?

I just watched a Japanese actress purchase a 900000 yen ($9000) LEICA M on TV.
Now I know who buys them.

On Photokina 2014: Sony stand report article (77 comments in total)
In reply to:

Rooru S: DPReview Staff..Any insights why Sony decided to not announce anything related to A-mount in one of the biggest -if not the biggest- show in the photographic world?

This stand reports says everything we must know about Sony...they don't take seriously their user base. Maybe it's time to jump from the A-mount wagon?

Sony just posted a major loss, meaning cameras aren't generating enough profit for them.

Very interesting camera.
Too bad it won't be marketed in Japan.

I'm rarely envious of Canon users, but today I'm very envious.

On Olympus PEN E-PL7 compact mirrorless camera announced article (80 comments in total)
In reply to:

pleytime: Why would anyone buy a camera, other than a cheap pocket one, without a viewfinder?

The PEN series were designed to have no EVFs.
If you want an OLY with EVF, get something from the OM-D series.

On Nikon announces full-frame D810 with no OLPF article (99 comments in total)
In reply to:

pca7070: Made in Thailand, finally.

"MADE IN JAPAN" means it's made in a factory located somewhere in Japan.
Factory could be filled with Thai workers, but it'll still be labelled "MADE IN JAPAN".

On Olympus OM-D E-M10 Review preview (334 comments in total)
In reply to:

itsastickup: It's a beautiful camera.

However:

Show me the bokeh, show me the bokeh, show me the bokeh!!!

And not at $900, FFS. These clowns won't crack mirroless until they realise that the common man wants everything but his kid's face out of focus. And he gets it from APS-C for less than $200

Bokeh, a Japanese word, have double meaning.
-soft, out of focus areas
-dimwitted

So, one way of seeing bokeh is checking oneself in a mirror.(^~^)

On Nikon 1 V3: a quick summary article (596 comments in total)
In reply to:

mdmiataman: I have an APS C Nikon D5100 and three lenses, a Lumix GX7 and three lenses and my waterproof Olympus TG-2. I have all the bases covered. Why would anyone spend $1200 for a smaller sensor camera than a M 4/3 with limited lens choices is beyond me.
My Nikon DX lens choices are about 50, and Panasonic and Olympus M 4/3 choices are about 40 and increasing in numbers monthly.
Nikon 1 V3 is a waste of time,.. and money !!!
..to quote Ken Rockwell, " It's always better to spend your time and money on learning art and photography, not by spending it on more cameras. "

Applies only to ones with hands.

In reply to:

Lucas_: IMHO it's outrageous to give a Gold Award and an 87% note to this camera and Silver with 80% to the fantastically innovative Sony A7 ( not to mention the A7R, which is clearly at another level and got Gold / 82%! ). It's about time DPR realizes that their reviews "conclusions" have actually become a joke! I can appreciate the level of camera features/controls details and specs they cover ( which IMO is the good value of the review ), but I've learned to just don't care at all about their final conclusions ( sometimes hilarious ) and rating!

@Lucas_
It shows you love your A7. That's fine; you should stand behind the cameras you purchased. But it doesn't mean everyone else have to equally love and rate the camera you love.

Jim Salvas: Nikon introduces the 1982 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham. Undoubtedly a great model.

1982 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham was probably the last of the great, truly American Cadillacs. Cadillacs since then are poor attempts at copying Mercs and Bimmers. They don't look or feel American.

In reply to:

JohnEwing: D300s users have been looking forward to a D400 like Christians awaiting the Second Coming. I loved & still love my D300s and would have grabbed an updated version (e.g. with the D7100 sensor) had it appeared in 2012 or last year. But it didn't, so I got fed up waiting and upgraded to a D600, which for me anyway has totally removed any desire for the D400 (not to mention the budget). I suspect a lot of D300s users have done the same thing. I suspect that Nikon sees the "D400" market this way too - i.e. dwindling devotees huddling in a back room while the parade goes by.

I discovered myself that the FF step isn't so expensive. There are lots of older Niion lenses that work beautifully, and some spiffy-but-inexpensive new lenses for full frame which - drop a tear - ain't Nikon.

I becamed tired of waiting for D400, so I shifted to Pentax. Nikon will have to bring something better than D7XXX or D6XX to convince me to shift back to Nikon.
