On article FroKnowsPhoto's Video Guide on sale (142 comments in total)

$57 for a 3 hour digital download tutorial ... really?

I would -at least- hope to get a 24K gold-plated DVD, and a personally signed tortoise shell afro pick,

lovingly packaged by none other than 'Fro' himself for such a princely sum. Nice try though!

The Stones made incredible music, but looking back they sure seemed like douchebags.

Aha! I knew it. Playing footsie favorites with Fujifilm I see.
(I'm teasing of course, and envious of such a sweet rig. :P )

"£34.99 in the UK and $55.66"

Looks cheap and overpriced. It can't cost them more than $5 USD to make this in China and then ship it around the world.

"innovative stabilization system"

Where do they get the nerve to call this innovative? A bag to put rocks in for stability? Unbelievable ...

Why are you even posting this, DPREVIEW?

Camediadude: Wow Nikon!! Taking it back to the basics, DROOL DROOL DROOL DROOL ...

Not joking, I like it!

And, I seriously don't understand all of the rabid, knee-jerk herd-mentality comments of irrational hatred here, nor do I see a need for so much condescending and arrogant rudeness. What did I do to you?

Nikon, please ignore this tiny, bitter and self-loathing minority of very vocal naysayers here. I wish your company success, and verily I hope to have such good fortunes ahead that will allow me to purchase my first (hopefully top-of-the-range) Nikon someday.

Cheers to all my fellow quality design and engineering lovers!

On article Olympus OM-D E-M1 Review (2082 comments in total)

This is up there on my list of dream bodies and systems (yes, I have bled OLY blue for decades since growing up with mum's old half-frame PEN EE series). But if I have to nitpick (and we always have to nitpick here, that's a given!),

then it is the lack of infrared remote capability. Great that it has WIFI, which many will prefer for its wealth of possibilities. But give me the simplicity of a standard little remote any day. And, while I commend DPREVIEW for a speedy full review here, I have to say:

Are those DUST MOTES on the top plate of the camera on page 3 of the review? And a crooked flash shoe cover at that? I sure hope not, and that it is just my tired eyes and monitor at this hour, but if it is ...

then C'mon now DPREVIEW, don't start slacking now on the pristine camera body shots that you have always excelled at. It is a signature of this site, so keep up those high standards we have come to expect, we sorely need such a constant in these tumultuous times!

This camera was rumored for years, and I admit that I did not think that Olympus would ever actually get around to making it. I sort of gave up and thought the worst, I confess.

But they made it, and it looks like a seriously capable instrument. Controls, indeed. I have always had a preference for EVF's. I wonder if I would feel overwhelmed by it all, the learning curve ...

If I had the moolah to get into any system right now, without a doubt, it would be this one. So, from this here longtime fan: Well done, Olympus! I hope you succeed and keep this system alive and strong. I will get one someday.

How does he DO that? I seriously need to see a behind the scenes, I am curious.

Keep sharing these fascinating works of art, Dpreview, you guys are on a veritable roll lately!

And so many cameras being covered too I see, there is a lot to catch up on and read, excellent ...

In reply to:

Dougbm_2: This does seem overshadowed by the RX10 and even bridge zooms such as the FZ200. I wonder who will buy this?

Thanks for those links, they truly are in vastly different size classes.

So many choices these days, there is a tool for every single purpose out there right now.

Now all I need is to win the lotto so that I can hoard a slew of these nifty new tools!

I think I might give it a try. Even if there might be some snags as some have reported (I hope they are just in the vocal minority) I would rather take my chances with this software than give Adobe one thin dime of mine ever again.

In reply to:

white shadow: Having tried the 12-40mmf/2.8 lens, this is what I would say about it.

It has a very good built and feels like a Zeiss ZE full frame lens. It is made of aluminium.

Priced at $999, it is much cheaper than the Lumix 12-35mm f2.8. Optically, it is also much better than the Lumix which is a bit soft at f/2.8.

It is best used wide open from f/2.8 to f/4.0. The colour rendition is very similar to a Zeiss lens. It has that 3D look, clarity and colour saturation.

The AF is silent and fast.

It is probably the best and sharpest Micro 4/3 zoom lens so far.

Very cool to hear. For now I will drool and dream ...
