JoFa,

Ok.

Link, then, to what "Perceptual Megapixels" are, according to DxO.

I like Leicas. It's unicorns I don't like.

Really?...Myself, I think you're indulging in what you want to believe in, instead of facts.

That would be OK with me was it not for the fact that it helps propagating one of Leicas sad BS marketing vectors: That its "quality" is palpable and above anything else.

Get an M10, give it the same treatment a field or war reporter gives an 5D or an 1D for a couple of years and then get back to me so we can further discuss "quality semantics".

There is a significant difference between saying: "Leica overall quality is better than most Canons" and saying "Leicas have true quality".

As I pointed out, the mentioned news confirm that, not only is Leica quality far from true but they also make a point of not putting their money where their mouth is, regarding said "quality".

landscaper1,

If you think Leica is "true quality", you haven't been reading the news.

Mr. Holscen,

No matter the "pcness", I don't think we are already in a stage where a "cause" can appropriate a colour.

I can't understand this "fascination" DPR has for DXO.

The company started its days as a software provider that had no problems stealth-installing piracy protection (PACE) kits on their customer's computers that acted pretty much like a virus, a sure sign that integrity is not their most valued asset.

Fast-forward to current days and the very weak trustworthiness signs continue to make one wonder.

Their explanation for "Perceptual Pixels", their measure of lens sharpness, is also so non-scientific and contrived that the link to the laughable explanation had to be shutdown.

I dusted my crystal ball today out of the closet it want into after predicting Samsung cameras would go the way of the Dodo.

It now says Apple will acquire Leica.

Great Bustard: I'm really surprised at all the hate being posted here. I suppose the commenters here feel the same about the Isle of Man TT race, Luke AIken's 25000 ft jump with no parachute, base jumping, extreme surfing, etc., etc., etc..

So, I guess I'll be the lone voice here and say that what happened was a tragedy as opposed to the "that's what you get" attitude that dominates these comments.

Yes they are...and, intentionally or not, people are coming out very unemphatic in this comments section.

Yes, the empathy around these parts is almost unbearable...Though crowd, I guess...

The poll is not tittled "2017 zoom lenses with most features I am really happy about" but rather "Best zoom lens of 2017".

"Best" correlates with actual performance.

Including lenses in the poll that can't be used by those voting and asking said users to possibly vote for them while leaving out such important, already available, 2017 offers like the Sony 100-400 is instigating the very same behaviour we, as a blanket whole, are asked not to engage in.

Twice.

On article Shooting with the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III in Moab (124 comments in total)

The lengths some people go to for a couple of beers :)

Just kidding...loved the video and the confirmation that Olympus is, indeed, on the right track.

(It is a bit curious that you mentioned in the review that the camera is not so good for sports shooters or anyone demanding dependable autofocus and, yet, you went with that specific application for this sponsored evaluation. Have you gained a new perspective on said limitation?)
