pkcpga: Great camera wish it had apsc sized lenses to match up with it. No point in a small camera if the g master or full frame zeiss are the only worthy glass. Every reviewer states the same that they like the g master lenses with it and the old e mount lenses don't do it justice. Any chance Sony has plans for new glass for apsc sensor size? I see no reason to buy this camera if I'm still going to pay for and lug around full frame glass.

ohh and Canon | Sigma lenses

Once again the cons list .. for a GX camera .. that doesn't make much sense (except the shutter shock) and silver award for such a loaded golden Pros list ..

Biggiep: No OSS on the 24-70mm 2.8 in 2016? Step it up Sony.

(a) A7-ii and A7R-ii both got Ibis ..
(b) many other follows the same tradition, fuji, canikon
(3) OSS is notorious for softness in many 3rd party lenses

Naveed Akhtar: This boundary wrap function is amazing .. thanks Adobe for not creating a new LR version just for that..

Yeah soorrry my badd!!
I am disappointed .. but to be fair, why should they give me new features for free? I will wait for ver 7, as don't wanna get into subscription and dont need Photoshop. Maybe if Adobe offer a subscription only for Lightroom at a lower monthly cost, I will take it.

Gazeomon: These photos are teasers? I only see turn offs and I am a Pentax user. What is the point of such garbage?

In reply to:

Alex Sarbu: DPReview, please remove those pictures; your gallery software is making them look much softer than they were on pentax.com.
This article became a Pentax-bashing fest because of it.

i agree these photos looks much sharper on pentax website. but probably its not bec of dpreview gallery software, its just that they are not using photos with high enough resolution
anyways .. its a news story, and thanks to guys like you, people will go to pentax own website to confirm .. so all is good!

Raist3d: Honest question dpreview- are you going to ever write down the full review for the GX8?

Yes, but at the end of the day .. DPReview staff are (no doubt very talented) human and they have their own preferences and likings and we have seen it time to time.

We should make our own list of pros and cons and deal with it. They normally give good enough details before the full review. I bought GX7 even though they gave silver award to it and am happy to grab GX8 if I will finalise a trip in near future and man if I ever had a regret I didn't picked a gold awarded camera; never ;)

In reply to:

Old Cameras: Very nice looking camera and frankly the aesthetic DOES matter, a lot. It's not something you need, it's something you want. I like the silver lens on the black body - very snazzy. I have a Coolpix A I carry around, which is a heck of a good camera, that has all the style of an oversized television remote. If you're walking around with this camera with a 17mm prime lens attached you can probably get away without world class focus speed or frame rate - you can still take good pictures and often better when you're limited in various ways. It's a pleasure to hold and use something mechanically fine and this contributes to your enjoyment. Well, just my opinion. Most cameras are hideous boxes with endless, and often pointless, confusing menus that utterly fail to inspire. What's wrong with a little classic style?

Oly menu is not the most intuitive either .. I had both Oly and Pany mirrorless cameras and Pany was much better ..

How does it matter ?
Most of the review is already here in bits and pieces
You can see its studio IQ for comparison too
Do you really need to see DPR rating .. gold silver award for it?

NickyB66: Good to see the X Pro 2 RAW support now.

True Menneisyys ..
Either ignore Adobe or Fuji XTrans.
Too bad both are too tempting to ignore ..

AKH: Is that Steve H. in the last picture? Dpreview + this guy = scary coctail ☺

that's not scary (talking to spirits) but maybe a bit silly :)

blackcoffee17: I think this lens is really a 600mm equivalent in good and decent light when 20mp resolution is enough.

blackcoffee .. you wanna add Nikon 1 camera too in that list of extension and exhagaration : ))

On article Retro through-and-through: Fujifilm X-Pro2 Review (2444 comments in total)
In reply to:

Boss of Sony: Fuji's latest offerings seem a bit same-old and late to the party compared to the latest announcements by Sony and Panasonic. X70 is a Ricoh GR with knobs. 24mp Fuji x-pro is 3 years later than sony's first 24mp aps-c. The latest Sony and Panasonic offerings have ibis, 4k, full-frame, and never been done before things like pocketable 1 inch sensor with 10x zoom, etc. (and still includes an EVF).

i wish all the cameras could skip dxoMark silly radars .. their parameters are mostly exaggerating

rest i agree with both of you .. don and boss!!
fuji is slow to respond the latest tech trends but at the same time, it offers the excellence in few segments where no other could dare to reach .. yet
