On article Leica M11 initial review (705 comments in total)

Excellent gallery, but why no info on the aperture that was used?

On article Gear of the Year 2021: Barney's choice - Nikon Z9 (531 comments in total)

Can we assume from your comment about 'former coworker Carey' that Carey is leaving dpreview? If so, it's a shame. He's been excellent.

On article What you need to know about the new Nikon Z9 (529 comments in total)

Typo in text on slide 4. Line 2 should read "height and WIDTH (or DEPTH?)". not "weight" which anyway is contradicted a few words on in the same sentence.

Certainly makes the Canon R3 and particularly R6 look overpriced. And I love the look of the 24-120 f4 amidst a sea of 24-105 lenses. Well done Nikon from a life-long Canon user. The only downside is it's way too heavy, for me anyway..

On article Hands-on with the Canon RF 14-35mm F4 L IS USM (388 comments in total)

Just to point out a typo....on caption 4, second para, it should of course read "14-35 f4".

On photo Freight train on the move in the Trains on the Go challenge (21 comments in total)

Excellent. Where was it taken? France? Canada?
Some of the comments below are a bit pedantic IMO. Very difficult to get the framing spot one as a train rushes by....one of those occasions when it's better to shoot slightly wider and crop. Still...well done.

Love the lab coat. Gives the video a spurious impression of scientific authority/ respectability even though not shot in a lab. Maybe that's his normal dress.

On article Nikon Z6 II vs Canon EOS R6 - which is best for you? (667 comments in total)

Of course the Nikon has the advantage that you can use it for duelling, should you be so inclined.

You mean there were photo before digital? Very nice photos, but as others have said, not really 'street photography', more photographs of streets.

Thoughts R Us: But 2018 is in the mirror. And all camera companies had a bad Jan through March quarter.

Here's a good analysis from Thom Hogan:
http://dslrbodies.com/newsviews/nikon-2019-news/may-2019-nikon-canon-newsvi/the-brutal-quarter.html

Another good breakdown of Sony's last quarter:
Buried in Sony's reporting is that their Imaging Products & Solutions group had a miserable January through March, just like Canon just reported. Traditionally that quarter is the worst performing for the camera companies, but Sony showed a 73% drop in operating profit year-to-year.

http://dslrbodies.com/newsviews/nikon-2019-news/april-2019-nikon-canon/market-share-or-profit.html

So the trend lines are the same for all camera companies.

@RubberDials
…" that period covered a major product launch."
With all the attendant costs involved.

Yes, good analysis by Thom Hogan there. These days, he doesn't seem to be quite the Nikon man he used to be. Whatever, in such a declining market, I think we'll see quite a bit of market consolidation over the next year or two. I wonder who will go under or merge. One thing profit figures don't show, of course, is manufacturing investment. Canon has been very busy over the last two years in automating its lens factories to reduce the cost of lens manufacture prior to launching its new range of high level RF lenses. May be that's where they see future profits growth coming from.

Thanks for the reply, Barney. As a long time journalist, technical editor and then editor myself (though now retired), I hold Richard in high regard. Carey is also very good. You have a very good team there these days.

In reply to:

tko: Upon further research, is this a fake article?

This guy has no internet presence. Nothing, not a single photo. Just a couple of articles that mention, well, this article. How can you be a pro photographer who USED to take a big old dSLR to Nepal every year, and never post a single photo on line?

But all of a sudden, an article where he supposedly uses iPhones appears out of nowhere, even though none of the photos appear anywhere else on the web.

How can you be a pro photographer for years going to exotic destination and never post a photo? How can NONE of these photos appear anywhere else on the web? How come a guy who supposedly founded a charity organization for Nepal's children never use one of his own photos for publicity photos?

How about:

Has DPR gone all tabloid? I thought this was a photography gear site so Amazon could increase its sales of cameras and lenses.
