J A C S: I tried it with one of my images and what I got was: "A blurry mess taken by a wannabe photographer obsessed with bokeh".

Consider yourself lucky... mine got "does not even qualify as a picture."...

On article Photokina 2016: Canon EOS M5 quick look video (254 comments in total)
In reply to:

laueddy: I like the M5, I think it is the camera I have been waiting for. Aside from my 2 large cameras (5DsR & 645Z), I have been wanting a slightly smaller camera that has decent AF capability (Ability to change AF Point location, Face-detection & AF Coverage). I tried an A7Rii, but I don' t like it. Difficult menu system, large heavy native lens, and don't work well with my existing Canon lenses. I purchased a SL1 for it's size, but the tiny viewfinder and AF Coverage just isn't sufficient for me. (Gave that camera to my dad).
Provided the M5 can addressed some of the weak points on the M1 & M3, I think I'll pick one up.

@Intermitentoverexp why should I care that other cameras have more features (which features BTW?) if this one has the features I need/want?

In reply to:

beavertown: Given that so many exciting gears are being released, the M5 just became less exciting, therefore it should be queued up for the full review after the others'.

DPR staff, say Hello to your new manager!

Searching: What an ugly looking featureless camera, gives mirrorless a bad rap.

What an ugly useless comment. Gives DPR posters a bad rap.

Favorable Exponynt: what is the viewfinder magnification? The specs say 0.39 type evf. I hope that's not it.

0.7x is OK with a nice OLED consyructiin and 120Hz refresh rate.

Voodoo, where did you get this info, I can't find it anywhere (not even in DPR spec sheet... what a shame! :-) )

In reply to:

lol101: Any idea of VF magnification?

At least its OLED and with high refresh rate (120hz).

Tanks for the info.

A bit of a disappointment if true, where did you get the info?

Also what technology is it? OLED? Sequential?

There is surprisingly few infos available on this essential feature...

In reply to:

tjbates: You're right about the 80D video being "just fine." Unfortunately, unless the M5 improves on "just fine" then for me it's "just not on."

I guess Canon just list another professional videographer.... too bad for them... but they'll survive.

In reply to:

GodSpeaks: So what exactly is the disappointment? Other than they should done this earlier.
Seems like a fine camera to me, and I am not even a Canon fan. The only thing I can see really lacking would be 4K video.

Your move Nikon.

Isn't it possible that Canon just waited until their dual pixel AF was sufficiently refined and fast to go up in scale in their M line...?

In reply to:

Joachim Gerstl: Too little too late.

Too late for what?

Want to bet that if Can in wants to push its M line, it will sell better than any other mirror less lineup?

In reply to:

odpisan: Negative comments about K-1 have all only one reason:

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
CaNik Co. got kicked in the balls with K-1 & now they are all histerical. So they send souch prepayed guys on internet to write stupid comments & to provoke us - Pentax-lovers.
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have only one question:

HOW MANY PENTAXIANS has wrote negative comments under articles about Ca-Nik camera-tests?

The answer is:
Nobody, niemand, personne, nihĨe, nessuno, niko, nikto ... !!!

Do you understand the fear of Nikon/Canon (owners)?
They are loosing their overpaid immage & they are histerical .. that is the only truth.

Honestly... the only one who is hysterical here posted just above this post...

On article The long, difficult road to Pentax full-frame (609 comments in total)
In reply to:

Tobi Wan Kenobi: Dear Pentaxians, I think there's an important point to make, to all those who are eagerly waiting to use the K-1 with old K-mount lenses in aperture priority mode: THIS CAMERA HAS NO APERTURE FEELER, for whatever reason. So with SMC-M lenses, Ricoh (Rikenon) lenses (even with the infamous "P" contact removed) and other K-mount glass lacking the "A" position on the aperture ring (in short: lenses with K- instead of KA-mount), the camera won't measure exposure according to the aperture setting. Pentax DSLRs do have the option to use those lenses with diaphragm closed, but then the viewfinder will be rather dark, depending on the set aperture (stop-down metering). Only with KA-mount or later lenses, the camera will measure properly as former K-mount SLRs did.
I'm disappointed, as it wouldn't have been hard to include the aperture feeler. So still no proper use for my nice old non-KA-lenses.

Nice trolling... but 4 times the same exact post makes it too obvious...try some variations.

In reply to:

odpisan: I do not understand some writers of comments here.

Are they so extremly stupid?

For K-1 we have plenty & all kinds of diferent lenses which work perfect on FF.

But some poeople think that if Pentax did not make FF-camera until today there also is no lenses for FF - or what? Why they show their stupidity here & do not first look in the Pentax site?
>:o(((

@Jorge Obviously you "don't care for Pentax" and yet here you are posting comments after comments on the K1....

But I see through your stance: you are part of Pentax viral promotion campaign! Well done Jorge, you more than earned your paycheck!
Those Ricoh marketing guys are really clever...

In reply to:

TriezeA72: If you're looking to buy a decent full-frame dslr, that's priced well, and looks the bit this might be it....I wouldn't call it a ground breaking camera, but it's a very positive move in the right direction here by Pentax/Ricoh!

@Anastigmat, I am not sure the 6D has a plastic body... mine certainly feels like magnesium alloy but I could be wrong...

No doubt the K1 will be sturdier though but in all honesty, the 6D doesn't feel like a cheap low quality body and serves me well, even in tough conditions
