On article Have your say: Best midrange ILC of 2016 (47 comments in total)
In reply to:

DualSystemGuy: This is a very strange set of options for best Mid Range ILC. No D7200 that won DPR's own round-up in this price range?

Agreed. These kind folk here on this particular review site do tend to march to the beat of their own drums ;)

In reply to:

sunjester: Very positive review. Though I am surprised a free trip to Iceland was left off the first page. Seems to me review sites should be very upfront with that kind of stuff.

Excellent belly-aching Rich, well done! :)

On article Ultimate OM-D: Olympus E-M1 Mark II Review (1245 comments in total)

Consider this Christmas season you can get a:

Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II + 25mm f1.2 Pro m43 for $3,199
-or-
Sony A7 Mark II + Zeiss 50mm f1.4 FULL FRAME for $2,996

I guess it really depends on whether or not you want the incredible light gathering capability and shallow depth of field that a great big full frame sensor provides or a tiny, albeit speedy sensor will suffice?

There is something wrong with the E-M1 SSCT. Sorry but you give me your studio test scene, and E-M1 (firmware v4) and a 45mm f.18 and I will give you back a file one hell of a lot sharper (at default settings) than the one you are providing here. It looks like the photographer missed the focus. This comparison is junk IMO.

Very nice set. What's most impressive to me is that the Mark II seems to really showcase the talents of the 75mm f1.8. Perhaps the first sensor to take full advantage of it's high quality optics. BRAVO!

Marty4650: What is interesting is that your comparison tool only allows comparing phones to phones and cameras to cameras.

It might be useful to be able to compare phones to cameras, especially for those who insist that the phones "are just as good as cameras are."

@Marty4650 never going to happen. The overlords have determined that such comparisons would be detrimental to proper camera sales ... especially the remaining point and shoots which are already in the throws of the death rattle save a few high-enders like the RX100 XXV ;)

Wow ... the Pixel raw file looks to be stellar for a phone camera.

Even the iPhone 7 RAW files look quite superior to the 7 Plus. DPR: Kindly re-shoot the iPhone 7 Plus SS or acknowledge to your loyal constituents that there is indeed a significant different in IQ between the 7 and 7 Plus. Without further delay please.

The title reads "iPhone 7 is best Apple device yet in DxOMark Mobile testing"
Maybe so, but certainly not the iPhone 7 Plus!

Kostasm: Just played with a .dng file from iphone 7 I've found on the web, processed in capture one 9.3. The result is amazing, super sharp, great dynamic range.

Would have liked to have seen that shot taken with the dual lens.

On article Video: Photokina 2016 wrap-up (152 comments in total)

Just a couple of blokes have'n a pint, one a bit more clever than the other. But which one? ;) I would have been interested in a viddy that shot the entire conversation at this table leading up to this wrap up. Then we would know their true favorites and not the scripted version intended to appease the overlords. Great Job Guys! :)

Wow...this may be the first M43 Oly Pro lens that is a mis-fire. Dear Oly: Don't ship it - go back to the drawing board...please!

@leonche64 great question you posed to Narretz. She needs to understand that it's ok to be ignorant, just don't make so easy for people to detect ;)

That Pentax body (photo #2) would do well today I think with 1DX guts and performance of course.

In reply to:

photog4u: Kodak should have purchased Samsung's ILC camera division and ran with it.

@ noegd: True such an acquisition or merger would have been challenging to be sure. However, such a transaction would have benefited both companies hugely IMO. I envisioned a deal with some cash, lots of stock (down the road) and exclusivity on the part of Samsung for production and manufacturing. All this because I believe there is still untapped life left in the Kodak brand where cameras are concerned. Alas, my point unfortunately, is moot I'm afraid as that ship has sailed.
