On article 2016 Roundup: Semi-Pro Interchangeable Lens Cameras (265 comments in total)
In reply to:

obsolescence: Another approach to "round-ups" would be based on systems best suited to specific kinds of work, such as sports, fashion, weddings, portraits, studio/products, street/documentary, travel, etc. State the parameters for what makes them best for that work. Then show various statistics such as pricing & sales figures, available prime and zoom lenses, compatibility with other-brand lenses, duration on the market, rental availability, and query the readers to indicate their ownership and to rate them. I think that information would help with selecting products for a desired purpose.

Use cases are definitely something we're thinking about for future roundups!

In reply to:

onlooker: 200+ comments, of which 150 argue over pro/semi-pro labels, and 50 over anti-Pentax bias. There, I summarized it for you.

That should be the DPReview motto!

In reply to:

PhotoUniverse: Why didn't you include Nikon D750? It's $1,996.95 at Amazon!!

MSRP of D750 is $2295. a7R is under $2000 now (the MSRP has been lowered since launch).

In reply to:

Favorable Exponynt: The D750 is also in this range I believe? Should have just made a Full Frame category to include the A7 R II and the D750 and D810 and 5D MK III D5 and 1Dx Mk II are outliers.

D750 MSRP is $2295, so it's in the next group.

In reply to:

PhotoUniverse: @DPR staff

Is there a reason why the D750 wasn't included? I am just curious! Some people below/above mentioned that it's based on MSRP at launch. However, when I checked your A7R's announcement, its MSRP at launch was $2299!

I am not saying there is a conspiracy. Maybe it's just something we might be missing.
Thanks

The D750 is in the level above this, which hasn't been published yet. The current MSRP of the a7R is under $2000 so this is where it landed. I absolutely agree that going by price isn't ideal, but each option has its pros and cons.

In reply to:

Jim in AZ: Hope it comes with the astro track feature.

It's not in the standard press release, but in the extended one (which I'm going to add) it does say it supports AstroTracer.

On article 2016 Roundup: $1200-2000 ILCs part 1 - Crop-Sensor (180 comments in total)
In reply to:

Sergey Borachev: This roundup would have been so much more interesting, if the best crop-sensor camera (up till now) were also included, to see how it stands up to the D500. While discontinued, the Samsung NX1 set so many standards for cropped sensor camers, it deserves to be included just so that we can see how the best possible cropped sensor cameras measure up and where we are with the best technology, ignoring the commercial issues.

Is it too late to include the NX1 now, perhaps in an update?

We're only including current models in this one, but you can certainly use the image comparison tool or hunt down last year's roundup to find the NX1.

In reply to:

PandaSA: All of the links in the "Here are the competitors in this crop-sensor round-up:" go to a 404 error.

Last minute headline change will do that. Thanks for the catch, it's been fixed.

In reply to:

Tom Schum: If you drop the low end to $1000, you can (and probably should, in my opinion) include the Sony A6300. I see now it was included in a recent roundup of cameras in the $800-1200 range. Oops!

@Tom Schum: Sadly, the roundup format isn't perfect, for exactly that reason.

In reply to:

TheTrickster2k: When has ANY of the FourThirds or mFT camera been a cropped sensor camera? This is poor editorial by the DPReview team.

As brendon1000 said, we're using the term for cameras that aren't full-frame. "$1200-2000 ILCs that aren't full-frame" is a bit too much.

In reply to:

BozemanMark: Why is the Olympus PenF not included in this comparison? It is the same price as the Lumix GX8 and the Canon EOS 80D.

It's right on the border at $1200 - it'll be in the next roundup ($1200-2000).

Thanks for catching that, it's fixed.

Avlieg: It will deliver RAW files?
I suppose no more "macro mode" with this lens?

No Raw or macro mode.

David Lumsden: Does this camera have the microscope/focus bracket/focus stacking capabilities of the TG-4?

Nope, it's pretty basic.

In reply to:

Jacques Cornell: Why'd they drop the Panasonic GF7 from the lineup while carrying over the Oly and Fuji from last year's review?

GF7 is discontinued. Other two are not.

odpisan: DPREVIEW
>:o(((

Question:

Why don't you mention Pentax K-S2 ($ 531,50) in this 'Roundup'??

http://www.amazon.com/Pentax-K-S2-Enabled-Weatherized-SLR/dp/B00SYIE0A6

As CaPi correctly points out, we're going by MSRP. The K-S2 is in the $500-800 roundup.

In reply to:

JerrySkrocki: Why no Fuji camera in this comparison?

That's a very good question. I'll investigate and get them in there ASAP. Definitely not intentional.

Edit: No, they're in our various roundups. Down one level are the X-E2S and X-T10. Further down in our next roundup is the X-A2. Stepping up in price you'll find the X-T1 and X-Pro2.

In reply to:

FuhTeng: Minor quibble - "As Nikon's flagship APS-C camera, the D7200 offers plenty of controls, customization and performance that should satisfy the most demanding of stills shooters." - it's not the APS-C flagship anymore.

I'm curious if the D500 will be listed in the next-step-up category along with all the big-dogs - D810, a7RII, D5S etc.

What a wonderful set of options in the enthusiast range - from tiny size and terrific lenses (EM5II) to excellent video (a6300 and GX8) to well-established DSLRs with tons of features (D80 - DO WANT TOUCHSCREEN, and the excellent D7200, the very tough K3II), this is a fabulous category.

Thanks for catching that. Words like "flagship" are supposed to be banned from our roundups for exactly the reason you brought up, and this one slipped through the cracks.

On what page are you seeing this?
