In reply to:

ShootFilmNotMegaPixels: Price should never be involved with considering one product against another, especially when DPreview specifically groups the reviews by price range and then makes another price range within that price range.

We are working toward taking price out of the equation (no pun intended) on future revisions of the roundup.

steviewa: Minolta was the first with a selfie mirror back in the 80's on a disc film camera

Disc film! Now that might be worthy of a tbt after we run out of digital cameras.

Henrik Herranen: "In the mid-2000s camera manufacturers had to find ways to differentiate themselves from the competition."

Well, last time I looked there still was close to 500 years until the mid-2000's... :-)

But yes, interesting read as Throwback Thursday articles use to be. Didn't even remember this particular camera!

Fixed that for you. I hope.

BrightTiger: "We have not had the chance to put the FZ300's image quality to the test"
Then why post a round up review with a conclusion? Isn't that the purpose? And then the gall to consider it the top option. Where's the standard for quality reporting? We now safely assume this site is just a complete shill for Amazon.

Apologies for the missing IQ info, I didn't copy the new page onto the live site. IQ analysis based on studio scene and gallery, both of which are linked at the bottom of the page.

Aroart: Wonder why the Panasonic zs100 or Sony rx10m3 did not make the list....

They're in a different roundup: enthusiast long zoom.

Gable Pass: I think the "100kg/220kg" is a typo.

It has a switch on the top to select how crushproof it is. Kidding, thanks for the fix.

Najinsky: Re: "AF Target Spot Metering (E-M1 II only)" - should say E-M5 II

Thanks for the catch!

In reply to:

s_grins: Why G80/85 is not on the list? Price of the body just fits the price range of this roundup

It's one of those edge cases that we run into. It could go in either category and since it's more competitive in the $900-1200 group, that's where it lives.

zodiacfml: The Studio Test scene does not allow selection of the RX1r II. I don't remember DPR doing the test though.

I noticed that last night and thought it was just my browser. Will dig in further in a bit.

On article Throwback Thursday: Minolta DiMAGE X (134 comments in total)
In reply to:

jrg: Hello staff at DP!

Go to the main overhead bar of news, reviews, and then hit cameras. You will see a list of different brands. If you click on Minolta you get nothing. If you click on others you get a list of cameras going back to the 90's. what happened to the Minolta camera list? Minolta may be gone but the list is historic and needed reference too. why a blank paGE? Especially in light of this article. What gives?

Thanks for pointing this out, I'll pass it on to our developers.

On article Throwback Thursday: Minolta DiMAGE X (134 comments in total)
In reply to:

Reactive: Does Throwback Thursday have to feature digital cameras? If not I'd love to see the Minolta 9000 featured. That was a real mean battleship of a camera, especially with the motor drive attached. Built in auto-focus, and an LCD and buttons on the back - white hot for 1985!

Accessories, techniques, fads and maybe film cameras are all fair game!

rrccad: Missing from this was their ILC and Camera sales (why dpreview.. not sure.. )

ILC unit sales +6% over 1Q 2016.
Camera $ sales +10% (forex adjusted) over 1Q 2016.

http://www.canon.com/ir/conference/pdf/conf2017q1e.pdf

They are still a bit bearish about fiscal 2017 though predicting a 7% loss in unit sales against a market decline of 5%. it will be curious if they end up beating that.

Apparently they aren't listening the forum warrior experts.

Thanks for pointing those out. One question: where are you seeing the overall market decline in the documents?

ET2: A $20 bill and a few $1 bills as a background image? Didn't you guys have a few $100 bills to use?

The suitcase full of money from Sony hasn't arrived yet.

villagranvicent: Question... if "Nikon abandoned the DL-series before they were ever launched" as you just said, then why still show on your database?

They need to be there in order to serve as a hub for all DL-related content. The description on their product page says that they were never released. Not a great solution but it's the best one we have.

Calvin Chann: Without the extensive catalogue of long prime native glass, how much use is this camera really? 70-200 with a 1.4x converter is as long as you can get with good glass.

Don't forgot that new 100-400 F4.5-5.6 G Master ;-)

Muster Mark: Hmmm, Gallery seems broken. Maybe there is high traffic or something, but I am stuck on the loading screen indefinitely. Other galleries work just fine. (Firefox 52.02 64 bit, ubuntu 16.04)

Should be fixed, let me know if you're still having trouble.

On article Nikon D7500 vs Nikon D500: Which is better for you? (398 comments in total)
In reply to:

Average User: Interesting article, but it feels as though the D7200 should be included in this discussion. By all reports the D7200 is an almost perfect camera with a really great sensor. Some might say, they would like everything in the new camera, but with the D7200 sensor. But we don't have that choice.
Additions to the 7500 compared to the 7200, which contribute significantly to better IQ are: tiltable screen; touch screen; much better fine tune; better auto focus; and better video. It's a compelling list. You give up one card slot and trade away a little bit of resolution to get better low light. Overall, it's significantly better.
Given the excellence of the D7200, the upgrade from D7200 to D7500, would be a half-step. If I were going to upgrade from the D7200, it would be to the D500.
Price differences are overrated. The real investment anyone makes in a camera, is the hundreds of hours it takes to learn it.

An article covering that very subject will be posted in a few days.
