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.

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 (332 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.

In reply to:

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.

pixperfect: The name Nikon is slowly fading away, just like a car going downhill with failing brakes.
Reducing cost (or making bigger profits) by moving the manufacturing to China.
Very deceiving when looking at the label and finding out that the camera is made in China ( V1, P7800, etc...)! cheaper price? Better quality?
Look at Fujifilm's camera body, lens, all made in Japan.
If this trend continues, in a few more years, there will no more Nikons because nobody wants a Nikon.

Because "MADE IN JAPAN" these days means they're made in a factory located somewhere in Japan. Doesn't mean those working there are Japanese. Case in point is a shuttle bus accident involving workers from SHARP's Kameyama factory in Japan. All the victims were from the Philippines.

In reply to:

erichK: What a boring group of Japanese corporate patriarchs! Even more excruciating than the Sigma, Fujifilm and Sony mughshots of aging male corporate types that have recently appeared here. And we saw a similar bunch of old boys scrambling to cover up the idiocies of their corporate hierarchy at Olympus a couple of years ago. ( A couple even had to give up their corporate sinecures!)

Guess that Japanese corporate leadership is closed to any real innovators, and of course absolutely to women. No wonder their economy remains on the skids: they shut out more than half the people who could really find a way forward!

Major problem with Japan isn't the fact that they're shutting out women, but the fact that they're attempting to appeal to women while dismissing men. N1 series was created to appeal to women, with total disregard to men. That's why the N1 series are colorful, cute little cameras (with cute little sensors). Cameras, cars, and everything else that Japan in the past excelled in has gone south since they started to believe in the myth that "women are the SOLE decision makers when it comes to consumer purchases, and men are simply extras". In reality, what little gains obtained by appealing to women lead to big losses from men. Japanese executives should realize that targeting one half of the population at the expense of the other half appeals to neither halves in the long run.

Evolve the D300 to a D400, please.

On CP+ 2014: Nikon stand report article (47 comments in total)
In reply to:

Carlos Henrique: I really don't understand the complain about Canon and Nikon stick with DSLRs. Both have huge systems and probably are led by marketing numbers. There are tons of mirrorless options for those who want it. Panasonic, Olympus and Fuji are doing a great job!!

I can understand the complaint about a D400 but I think that there must have a money decision involved. Sales numbers might guide the company.

Nikon and Canon should stick to DSLRs. Let others do the mirrorless. My question is, if Nikon and Canon are so intent on sticking to DSLRs, why is it that their products seem duller and duller? No D400. No 7D2. They just churn out cheap plastic DSLRs instead. Even the upcoming D4s is simply a minor brush-up. There's nothing in Nikon's or Canon's current line-up that I can say "Wow, this camera is so perfect for me, it should be NAMED after me!"
