ScottD1964: Well built or not, that has to be one of the worst looking cameras I've ever seen. Not that looks of a camera matters if it performs well, but, with the 40mm pancake mounted it looks like the design team beat it with an ugly stick.

I know I am the minority, but I like the designs of most Olympus and Pentax cameras, including this one. On the other hand, most Cannikon cameras look "plastic" and "uninteresting" to me.

Sorry but I have difficulty understanding the graph. For example, what are the sales volumes of mirrorless cameras before 2011? Are the sales volumes of mirrorless cameras after 2011 proportional to the length of the red bar, or in accordance with the y-axis?

rsjoberg: I would rather have my Lumix LX7 with EVF than the latest iPhone.

But I've never heard of a Lumix LX7 that can phone and install Pokemon Go.

On article Have your say: Best High-end ILC of 2015 (21 comments in total)
In reply to:

Fri13: Strange that Olympus E-M5 II was left out, as it would provide best image quality from all those for studio (product photography) and landscape (same limits as 1s long exposures) or even stationary portraiture (with film we were custom to have models stay still for second).

And it is one of the best high-end ILC by the features as well.

I have a Sony and a Pentax, and I love both cameras as they both produce great pictures, but I will never say strong words like "Pentax K3 produce best product photographs" as I have not tried all other cameras, unless, of course, if I am affiliated with the brand.

aramgrg: Now these are the guys that should be included in the Red book. Smartphones rules!!! After Note 5, I am not gonna buy a fixed lens compact, the difference is not worth it. ILC is another story.

Aramgrg, luckily not everyone thinks the same as you, otherwise these great cameras would never appear in the market.

NWT: Only 5 in the category and 4 of them were recommended. What is the point to have it!

The point is: all cameras in this category are good. Every camera has its own advantages over the others and it all depends on what you need.

ET2: Most of these online polls are bogus. If you google "dpr k-3 poll" you will see Pentax fanboys had orchestrated campaign on various Pentax forums (outside DPR website) about the poll. That kind of campaign would obviously have impact on the result.

Yeah, fanboys post to a zillion forums about the poll (outside DPR website) and that will obviously have an impact on the result.

Pretty meaning results, and pretty pathetic.

A poll is a poll, and it includes every factor that leads to the result, including what you mentioned "campagin". Unless you accuse DPR of acting unfairly, I don't see anything wrong with that. On the other hand, you may want to investigate why Canikon don't have die-hard fans that are eager to lauch "campaigns" to counteract the "campaign" of Pentax, if it ever exists.

Alexis D: Why I would not go to many places in that region unless there is no choice, whatever their attractions are or however much money can be made. It is not just about scenic photos, but health. Dubious food ingredients, bad air, radiated food chain, unscrupulous and unregulated food industries.

Declaration: I am from Hong Kong.
Bad air: Yes, but the bad air is unlikely generated by Hong Kong since the region has no industrial sector.
Dubious food ingredient, radiated food chain: Disagree. Hong Kong has system to continously monitor food safety.
Unregulated food industries: did i mention that Hong Kong has no industries?

On article Fujifilm X100S Review (493 comments in total)
In reply to:

lmtfa: Their are more "CONS" listed here than their are in Pelican Bay Prison. And it still gets an 81% + Gold Award. So it has been decided by those in charge, make a "Retro" looking camera and name it Fujifilm and bingo it's a world class winner. I wish I had my Brownie that I got from Kellogg's Corn Flakes box tops. It surely would garner a 83% and don't call me Shirley:-))

It is not a simple number counting game. Yes it got quite a number of "cons", but I looked at the pros, and it was those that really matters (image IQ, responsiveness, AF accuracy...)

On article Samsung Galaxy NX Hands-on (195 comments in total)

The android OS looks interesting and attracive to me first, until I looked at another review which says that it needs quite some time to load the OS when you switch on the camera. That's quite unacceptable for a camera in my opinion. Of course you can go to sleep mode (instead of switching it off) and this allows the camera to wake up instantly, but then it would drain up your battery...

Why nobody here mentions inclusion of anti-blur function, which has attracted lots of rumors in PS, in LR5? That alone is worth the upgrade.
