Nothing special about the iPhone photos, same or even better IQ can be had from recent Android phones from Xiaomi, Real Me, Huawei which is sadly not available in the US.

Kinda not surprised that the Pentax KP is not on this list. For stills image IQ alone, it is a serious contender for an APSC camera, pretty quick and accurate AF-S as well. But oh well, this is DPR.

Wow, just think about all the cat photos this baby will take.

Photoman: One question...why??? (MFT sensor/FF lenses?)

They also manufacture some Canon lenses, so it's a good start with what they have

DPR posted some sample photos from the GRIII, and most of them are really damn good

peterwr: I was hoping to upgrade from my 16Mp GR just for the extra resolution, but at this price and with that battery life I'll be holding off for a while, I'm afraid. Plus it still has a too-wide 18mm lens. Seriously looking at adding an X100 or whatever is about to replace it to the kit. Less compact, but better in pretty much every other way.

...and I may be old and doddery, but I still don't need IS on an 18mm lens. Jeez.

But doesn't it have a 27mm FoV FF equivalent?

fakuryu: Wow... The Pentax K1 FF DSLR is actually smaller by a bit in dimensions compared to this Panny :D

But no doubt that the Panny is an awesome camera as well.

TheRealYeats: Jeez, that poor 35/2 is fugly.

Well you can say that it looks like a modernized Pentax-FA35 f/2?

If the Oly can capture the moment even in indoor sports, then it did a fine job. Doesn't really matter how bad the noise is which is actually quite decent BTW, since for magazines, news agencies, news portals, web portals, etc will down sample the photos to probably just 2mpx or even less anyway.

fakuryu: Looks like Robin Wong is still the best when it comes to reviewing Oly cameras since he is very familiar with the ecosystem, lots of great info and photos here:

@Wu Jiaqiu

I'm not sure if he is still an Oly ambassador but you can also check out his non-Oly reviews especially the Pentax 645Z review, he is just generally a really good photographer.

What I liked about hos EM1X review is he that actually posted a 100% crop of some of the photos he shot (I haven't checked other reviews aside from DPR, his, and some YT vids).

I imagine that this camera paired with the 40-150 f2.8 Pro or the 300 f4 Pro would be an awesome combination.

Gesture: What will pro photographers do?

Sony already have these cameras that can match the TOTL Canikon cameras, the A7III and the A9 and have the lenses to complement the bodies. To the competency compared to the Canikon TOTL, I cannot say since I have little experience with it.

You can actually spec an AMD Thread Ripper with 64GB DDR4 3200 RAM, 1TB M2 SSD, 12TB enterprise class HDD, 80Plus Titanium PSU, an AMD VEGA or NVIDIA Quadro, an aluminum and glass case, a 5K monitor and still have enough for a new FF camera and a trip to Europe.

In reply to:

Astro Landscapes: "...but with tweaked image processing for better JPEG image quality..."

Which photographers is this camera designed for, the ones still stuck in 2003?

Probably sports photographers? Photojournalists? Basically photographers who does not have the time to post process or work where time is of the essence?

In reply to:

fakuryu: Nicely composed images but in terms of low light performance and IQ, it is really not far off the old 16mp Sony sensor found on the Nikon D7000 and Pentax K5

I'd say actual pixels. The only way I compared it was using the low light studio samples comparing the D500 and D7000 RAW at ISO 6400. It looks like the sensor of the D500 is not really that far ahead.

In reply to:

Fred Mueller: Certainly going to be a great camera for action and general use ...

Just from what I can see here, I'd still go for my 750 for file quality that is just a little bit better all around ... but can't hold a candle to the speed and, likely, AF accuracy of this new body

Will be interesting to see the DXO scores when they appear ...

The speed and AF accuracy of the D750 is nothing to scoff at since it shares the same AF module of the D4S AFAIK
