Andy Westlake / Admin,
In page 1 you mentioned the weight is 665 g but on second page it's 815g. Which one is correct? Thanks

Dave C 150: Peevee said:-
"Pentax K-5"
not a bad camera. Of course, no hand-held shooting with long teles for you, and AF tracking is not up to Canon/Nikon standard.
Eh? The opposite is true. In body SR for all lenses going back to the sixties. Which other camera can say that. I have easily shot at 1/200th second hand held with the Sigma 150-500mm. With its brilliant high ISO performance high shutter speeds are easy to get. It is true AF tracking is poor compared to Canon/Nikon though.
Also someone said K-30 has better sensor than K-5. I think you will find they are the same Sony one.

Rftb: Peevee1 just pointed the weaknesses for every single camera in the list. It's not an unreasonable bashing imo - it adds a more balance view from the article above. It's just a proof that no camera is perfect for everyone.

It's nice to see 5 out of 8 photos were taken at my parent's birthplace, Lombok that means the tourism is growing fast there. Hopefully it encourages the local government to invest more on the infrastructure.

There are many places I was told are still unexploited like Pink beach (named because the sands have the pink colour) that requires 4WD to get there because the roads have so many potholes.

If Nikon's camera is voted to be the best, Canon fanboys will bash it.
If Canon's camera is voted to be the best, Nikon fanboys will bash it.
If non-Nikon/Canon camera is voted to be the best, both Canon and Nikon fanboys will combine their forces and bash that camera :)

On Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 75mm F1.8 Preview preview (213 comments in total)

It's really a weird focal length. I actually expected fast 17mm f1.8 or f2 (35mm FOV equivalent in 35mm camera).
Also, hopefully m43 manufacturers don't forget that flash system is as important as body and lenses. "Pro-like" body and lenses, should be supported with sophisticated flash system. I would love to see Oly and Pana can compete with CaNikon with respect to lighting.

In reply to:

syakirzainol: if this system provide good flash system with wireless and high-speed sync, i can see myself jumping ship to this...

+1. If Fuji is committed to develop X-mount system fully (wireless flash system, on-going addition of lenses), I will be strongly tempted to jump the ship too from Nikon. For now, it's just a nice expensive toy.
