Admire what Sigma have achieved in recent years in promoting their ABWP (Arm Building Workout Programs) for all the photogs out there.

Elephant in the room, that 58mm f.95 is a bit silly.

Photographers need to learn not to take photos sometimes just to 'Stay in it'

grock: "Oh, Canon - where should we start? You're one of the biggest camera manufacturers in the industry, but you're still among the most conservative."

I mean, aren't those things directly related?

It depends, look at mobile phone industry.

The problem with Canon is its market share is too big.

mxx: "Pentax, we need to be careful what we say here..."

Say what you like, but don't be so condescending, and try to show some enthusiasm for a good product.

They won't, it is unknown that Pentax cameras don't get much praise here.
Then look at how Nikon receive this kind and loving encouragement as if it was DPR's own kid.

Pentax users are the coolest.

No need to be terrified.

Thoughts: Ricoh need to step up their game, Pentax deserve a future.

Just join Sony, if the R&D is too much for a new system. Pentax will make some fantastic compact prime lenses for FE mount (we could only dream).

On a different note, I was surprised to see so many DPR editors to express their fondness of Pentax

@Alex, that is why I was surprised :P. I am not a Pentax user, but I also sense an editorial bias against Pentax here for some time. Underdogs have a tough life.

Nikon is the only one out of the top three that don't have APSC mirrorless, which seem to generate a lot of sales for both Canon and Sony.

will be interesting to see how they play the game next. To me, the launch of 1 series cameras was a bad move and they are paying the price

Pentax could join a mirrorless system like Panasonic, Sony E seems quite nice to enter.

One thing is quite remarkable, not only Sony a5100, but also cameras such as the very first generation of its a7 series etc are all still in production and being sold at very attractive prices.

Perhaps a strategy to squeeze out its competition.

Nikon doesn't look too good in this report.

In reply to:

davids8560: Meh. It's still Canon for serious work, and every other make and model for free time and carefree fun in the sun. You could offer a true pro photographer a hundred bags of gold bullion, a free estate or stylish penthouse downtown, and an Aston Martin to sway them to use some other brand of gear when output matters most, but they won't. It is an immutable unwritten law. Ten billion hamsters could swim across the seven seas. This will never change. Give up your foolish quest! Surrender, and join in!

What will never change is snobbishness :)

Every lens in this range - Vintage is very appealing.

Would love to try these tiny lenses on cropped sensor cameras.

On article Buying Guide: The best instant cameras (63 comments in total)

I was wondering why there is an omission of any instant cameras using Zink printing papers.

Since they are actually digital cameras, you also save files in Jpeg and connect your phone via wifi to print photos directly.

This listing probably is more interesting, DPR!

Not a bad entry at all, but for the price tag it carries, it is not a professional camera for many, and it is an intentional decision not to compete with Nikon's professional camera.
