On article Photokina 2016: Olympus E-M1 Mark II overview video (280 comments in total)

For Olympus users the EM1 II maybe a tempting camera to upgrade to. The stats and the camera features look very good, but I don't see any compelling reason to switch from any APSC system. The size advantage is negligible and the image quality maybe comparable (at best). Olympus's 'pro' lens offerings although very good quality are not exactly compact either. I would consider Olympus if I would not be committed any other system.

rsenk19: Why did they go for Bayer instead of X-Trans?

@Ranma13
Thank God for that.

Not much is happening in the camera world, is it? Let's regurgitate some of that fermented gear then. Yawn

On article Still solid: Fujifilm X-E2S Review (230 comments in total)

An outdated boring unexciting little camera, I think. A rehash of the previous model. I fail to see the point of this release. Some may 'upgrade'.

Some years ago I sampled one of their backpacks and found them overrated and way too expensive. I expressed my opinion to F-Stop and received a pompous and arrogant reply. I stay way clear of them. They still stink.

On article Making a splash: Nikon D500 real-world sample gallery (228 comments in total)

There are certainly some positive aspects of the camera body. The general image quality on my calibrated monitor from the D500 is good with those used lenses, but nothing that blows my mind. I can easily match that with my Pentax K3 and my ltd. primes.

Max Iso: Easily the best crop sensor camera ever made. Best IQ, best battery life, best AF, best feature set, and Nikons great lenses backing it up.

ALL HAIL THE KING !!!!!!!!!

Is Nikon paying the weed for You? Or do You just need something to believe in?

Seems to be a decent 'walk around town' photo bag. Not my design taste. I own a number of messenger bags and I find the 'Tenba mini' about the same size, very similar features and more, light and tough for less than half price. 'Peak Design' products are generally good but seriously overpriced (not just bags).

On article Retro through-and-through: Fujifilm X-Pro2 Review (2501 comments in total)

What I don't get is the omission of an articulated screen on this type of camera at this price point. I think it's otherwise a good camera (although not really great or outstanding) but not being able to easily shoot from the hip or at difficult angles would be a deal breaker for me. Luckily there is a lot of choice out there.

On article Samsung NX500 shown as discontinued (273 comments in total)
In reply to:

Mark K: Too bad. NX500 is such a nice camera which shows Samsung can do the very best mirrorless in industry. However, discontinuing camera business shows again Samsung is a company without any commitment.

They are committed to shortsighted PROFIT, regardless how good their gear is. They did not give their new cameras and lenses the time it takes to get established in the market. They were just about to get traction because everybody took notice, only to withdraw because of some 'detached' number crunchers who have no clue to what it takes to get established in the photography market.

Franz Weber: That is sad. I will never buy a camera from an asian manufacturer again.

Well, they are none asian, but big, heavy, high quality and just a little on the pricey side of photography. He maybe wealthy, highly skilled and very fit to deal with a none asian kit. Respect!

On article Samsung NX500 shown as discontinued (273 comments in total)

I bought the Samsung NX 500 in April last year and paired it with the 30mm f/2 and the 20mm f/2.8 pancake primes. I took this little system to Europe and Japan as a travel and street kit. This gear performed astonishingly well and the image quality rivals that of my Pentax K3 and ltd. primes all the way. I think it's actually a little better in sharpness and colour acuity. The only thing missing for me was a viewfinder. It's sad that Samsung got out of the camera business just when they started to make a serious impact with some serious gear. In terms of image quality I can't find anything better on the compact APSC sensor market right now. I'll keep and use this kit until it wears out.

When technology hits a dead end the fashion show begins and out come the 'poser toys'. So what, if it sells. Still a good camera.

Valiant Thor: I've had the PEN-F for about a week now and I have to say it is my favorite digital camera of all time (and I've had and still have many others). I've been using it primarily with the Lumix 14-140 HD Power O.I.S. lens and both photo and video results are superb.

For those of you that showed up here with dopey "Ho hum" and "nothing awe inspiring" comments and other complaints regarding no weather sealing (give me a break) and no 4K (the 1080 60p is stunning) and the high price, this camera does not apply to you. Typically those who make such comments never designed or were involved in the manufacturing of anything in their entire life, yet are now self-appointed experts.

For those of use who have been involved in engineering and manufacturing, this is truly a camera to appreciate and be thankful that we have the opportunity to use and be grateful for such a beautiful and capable camera. Using this the PEN-F adds fun and spice to shooting compared to the black plastic Canikon bodies.

Yes, I was wondering about that. He's definitely entertaining a very special relationship with his image capturing device.

Jeez, this must be a very very good camera then. I am involved in engineering myself and always thought other makers can produce excellent cameras too. Must have missed something on this Olympus poser toy.
