photofan1986: Those samples look really soft on the GX8. Then again, shooting at supid apertures like f/16 doesn't help either...

Sunstar test.

SETI: Don't wanna be rude but taking pictures with MFT camera at f/16 looks strange for me

Shooting at F16 was a sunstar test.

eno2: This will be another nail in the coffin for the camera manufacturers.

That particular coffin is getting very heavy.

Sean Setters: The link you used for the Nauticam Housing for Canon EOS-1DX Mark II is incorrect; it links to the 1D X housing.

Here's the correct link: www.backscatter.com/sku/na-17321.lasso

Thanks!

nick101: When will DPReview get around to including the leafcutter ants in their test process? In fact, why hasn't it happened before now? Money changing hands to protect the reputation of Canikon, I suppose

I'm so glad that someone is keeping track.

Oh we're pro-Sony this week, I think. Or was that last week? I lose track.

MyReality: The confirmation that 360 deg. images will be big in the future? Another threat to traditional photography?

A lot of 'traditional' photographers are adopting 360-degree images in their work.

Dammit, Mark. Also, I forgot to put a virtual door into this gallery. We could be here for a while...

NWT: It was great that DPR was denied a Press Pass, otherwise, this would be a D5 review. Congratulate the festival organizer!

Cdog: What's the next Instagram?
Would love a suggestion preferably not owned by facebook
Seriously, f there's something better out there I'd like to know, I'll switch right now.

Tumblr also allows you to schedule posts and upload images from a desktop browser - imagine that!

I enjoy Tumblr, but it's a very different platform to IG. It is FAR superior in terms of showing off images (and works very well on desktop as well as mobile) but not as effective in terms of building a social presence if you're trying to use it for professional purposes.

I've never liked Instagram for its relative insularity (personally as a casual user I've found that IG posts tend to get seen and mindlessly liked by people I already know, whereas on Tumblr, reposts and likes come from all manner of people from all over the world) but I've also never been a power user of either platform. Just my ¢2.

pkcpga: Nice review and nice looking camera, nice photos, only wish it had a viewfinder. I guess if it did it would be over priced liked the newer rx100's. At this price point it should be a hit for canon. I wonder if the Nikon DL's are using the same Sony sensor or if they're going to use a BSI Sony sensor.

Ah yes you're right.

To the best of my knowledge all of the Sony 1-inch 20MP sensors have been BSI. I'm sure someone will correct me on that if I'm wrong.
