Gazeomon: Over developed camera body, underdeveloped photographic sensor at an ultra developed price point. Good camera for machine gun photography who can afford it.

Did I?

On article Woof! Sony a6500 sample images are here (365 comments in total)

As somebody already said. Interesting photos, I really enjoyed the gallery but the image quality, although not bad is no better than my Samsung NX 500's. I'd like to have a closer look @ the Sony 6500 when it comes out. Something smells funny here.
Is that Nikon's dying?

My current MBP is 4 years and 3 months old and things getting a bit slow and wonky. Looking at the new MBP's leaves me feeling a bit deflated because I was excited when Apple finally announced their new machines. Yes, they're looking nice but apart from a few inconsequential gimmicky features there is really nothing ground breaking that would warrant this crazy price tag - and then they took away that 'cumbersome' card slot that millions of MBP users need every day. Now they want us to buy 'less cumbersome' dongles to enhance our daily work experience. Schiller, You need Your brain checked! Seriously!

A card reader is a 'cumbersome slot' ??. Dangling a card reader from a port is not only cumbersome it also takes away a port and space on Your desk. What is that guy smoking? Wireless data transfer from cameras is still quite rare and sketchy and won't be common place for quite some time.

Gazeomon: $2000 for a Mft camera?! Body only?! For about that money there is better gear around.

Quite impressive, if needed.

True. If 60fps in jpeg is more important than RAW image quality from a FF camera than $2000 is maybe a small price to pay for a camera that is as large as a FF DSLR with that tiny sensor. On the other hand the OM1-2 is not really tested yet and may surprise us. Nikon's D500 is in a similar price range (not exactly cheap either) similar size, good image quality and an unsurpassed AF system in it's class. I personally value image quality and an efficient user interface higher than a bloated exotic feature set. But sure, Your milage may vary.

In reply to:

wed7: This review makes it even harder for me, I am looking either at Fujifilm XP2/XT2 or Pentax K-1. Oh well. =)

No brainer for me. For outright image quality, Pentax K1. Pentax has very good lenses but should have more. They will come.

On article Photokina 2016: Olympus E-M1 Mark II overview video (295 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 (238 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 (225 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 (2499 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.
