tresemes: BTW, right now if I go to the comments of the Adobe's link provided in the article I can see the emails of all the people writing in there, I guess this is not how it should be.

I like how people are replying to complain about exposing their e-mails...???

stevo23: All this excavation, but have they fixed the Fuji development issues?

No worries. I just think they shut off some of their market with X-Trans. I know people who use Fuji for the bodies and lenses and put up with X-Trans (even getting a new workflow) and I know others who don't want to reinvent their workflow, so they stay away from Fuji, but would like Fuji. No one I know went to Fuji for the sensor alone, because it's so awesome. They go to Fuji for everything else.

The sensor, IMO, blocks some others from getting into the system, and provides not-enough-benefit. It was an interesting idea when they first launched it, but now it's almost a pride thing that they can't let it go. I am SURE Fuji would still have their awesome color science on a Bayer sensor and clean high ISO. I don't think the XTrans does anything for them there.

From what I've read, RAW noise reduction is the real hero there, but thanks for the ad hominem!

I think they sent a note to Fuji asking them to drop x-trans. It's the best anyone could hope for. What the heck does x-trans get you anyway, other than reduced moire, and most of the moire issues are pretty well controlled through higher MP count, in-camera, or post-capture processing. Why does Fuji still insist on X-Trans? Are they just too embarrassed to let it go?

noyo: Since the last update, my Lightroom Classic CC has become prolific at crashes and freeze-ups. Hope they have fixed that this time.

My issue is that all the controls and options go black, except for the pic itself (as if I was in blackout mode), and I can't bring it back without restarting LR. It does this pretty regularly. I've only had 1 recent crash. Bug fixes are good too :) I love these updates, but I hope it doesn't cost us any performance.

On article Google reportedly to acquire Lytro for $40 million (166 comments in total)

$40m is the money they found under the coach cushions in google’s break room. For a joke, they put random tech companies on a board and threw darts at the board to see which to buy :P

WT21: I need to buy a cheap FF body. Glad I waited. Everybody's used FF bodies just dropped in value (except for maybe the D850)

Except now I want the a7iii, lol

brendon1000: Yesss !!! Just when my A7 II has given me enough trouble that I want to replace it this comes out. Sold !!!

(For me) Positives

- 24 MP sensor (Yeah !!!! Fed up of how much the 42 MP files of my A7rII slow down my 6 core PC)

- 10 fps (Ok I hardly shoot bursts but 10 fps is impressive)

- Z battery (The best feature for me yet. Fed up of charging so many batteries to take to a shoot as I shoot with 2 cameras)

- AF speed is a good plus point though I was pretty happy with my A7 II except in very low light

- Joystick and touchscreen is just the icing on the cake ! :)

Negatives

- The price ! (Sony has moved up the entry level FF camera but considering the features I can understand).

making note ... don't buy Brendon's used a7ii

:P

Georgeee: This is what I like about Sony (as a Canon user). It packs all they have and release it without holding any back. Much more exciting than Canon. It may cost their higher end cameras, but will take much big shares of the market in the long run. Well done, Sony!

You no like the D4000 + excitable flash? ;)

NZ Scott: A very interesting and "newsy" article. Thanks, DPReview, for publishing this.

Agreed. Honestly I was afraid of click bait, but this was excellent

CA blows to do business in (or many other things for that matter). I worked for a UT based company. It has it's issues, but it's pretty awesome, too.

On article Panasonic Lumix DC-GX9: What you need to know (215 comments in total)
In reply to:

hectorpatrick: "are unhappy that Panasonic hasn't doubled down on some of the GX8's unique features"? Surely you meant 'doubled up", in other words increased the feature set, rather than halved it?

"Double down" means to double your bet on the same hand. You are putting more investment behind a winning hand. It was the proper use for double down

On article Panasonic Lumix DC-GX9: What you need to know (215 comments in total)

I am a GX85 user, and prefer that body to the GX8, but seriously, except in name, this is no way related to the GX8 body, compared to the GX85. It is an all-around downgrade, from a body perspective, from the GX8. Same tech (EVF, LCD, shutter) and price as the GX85, all they did was put in the newer sensor in the GX85, add bluetooth, and add some new Venus tricks (composite, new B+W option).

How come the reviews never say "they put the shutter of the GX85 into the GX8." I just find that funny. They keep saying a "redesigned" or "new" shutter, but it's the shutter the GX85 had all along with just +1 fps and a flash sync speed of 1/200 vs 1/160 (another downgrade the GX8).

The outlier is the GX8, which seems to be an orphaned camera line now. This is the GX7 mark iii (with the GX85 being the GX7 mark ii)

David 247: Haven't had a chance to really put it through its paces yet, or do any heavy importing, etc, but in overall general use there is a moderate but noticeable improvement, especially when editing photos. Much less hesitating. MacBook Pro Mid 2014 with 16GB RAM

That's the machine I have, and that's the same result I'm seeing

LadislavCZ: Well, nice looking camera but Olympus has set the price wrongly. 699 Euro with a kit lines.
Panasonic has better offer with around 150 Euro less price.
Sony has A6000 currently around 549 Euro which only lacks 4K and IBIS (but has stabilized lens) and shine at everything else. Resolution, dynamic range, FPS, EVF, focus speed, etc.

The appropriate price set would be around 549-599 for this EPL-9 but not 100-150 more.

"Would the sensor be bigger, the same aperture amounts to more light. Would the lens aperture be bigger, the same amount of light could be captured." It seems like you are confused about some terms there.

I have no idea what you mean by image quality. Now you are equating image quality to MP count. Makes no sense.
