On article Throwback Thursday: Photokina's greatest hits (45 comments in total)

Not sure if it was photokina star or not, but for ex, canon 300d was star in consumer market, no doubt. First camera, which brings "affordable" dslr to people (well, it did to me, anyway). that deserve place on some list, in my opinion..

In reply to:

King of Song: Actually I'm becoming a little frustrated and confused. I'm disappointed with Canon. I don't really like the Nikon F mount. The Sony E mount is half gadget half camera. Sony A mount??? At heart I'm a medium format guy, in the past I always used Rollei 6008. Medium format digital has not really been feasible until now.

Last year I almost bought the Pentax 645Z, but I hesitated because I didn't really like the lenses. This new Hasselblad X1D is truly gorgeous, but the lenses are going to be slow. This means for street photography you will need to use higher ISO's which may negate the benefits of the larger format? If that's the case, why spend so much more, lose speed and versatility, and gain weight, if there is no mage quality dividends?

Suddenly there is another alternative, the new Fuji GFX 50S. It has the potential for faster lenses due to the fact that it has a shutter. I will wait for DPR to test these two cameras side by side, before I make my final decision.

if you don't mind using manual lenses, you probably could use some old mf faster lenses (contax, mamiya, czj, etc), when adapters come out. Only thing i'm not sure is if this camera have kind of shuuter mechanism, that support lenses with integratred leaf shutters and all that. But since there is enough room for adapters, maybe they have intagreted shutters, too.

mr.izo: How are the minimum focus distances on these short flange digital mf cameras ? I remember fot ex. on mamiya 7 lenses (i know, different lense design etc), you can't get real close to subjects. Ok, there are macro adapters and all that, bit still..

i'm aware about rangefinder design, i was speaking in these new mf mirrorless cameras, which is not that far away, if you look at it (smaller footprint etc). I think minimum focus is an issue here, since if you want it, you have to have bigger, longer lenses (same goes for aps or ff mirrorless cameras).
So, that's why i'm asking what's minimum distances for let say new lenses for fuji and other new mf cameras that are coming out. Could be critical, when doing some portraits, landscapes etc..

photog4u: Kindly as one of the product manager's in the booth if they are planning on supporting either or both of the Sony mounts anytime soon? Thank you.

olivemoonstudios, if that was the case, why bother with prime lesnses them which already are there? i think they would earn enough juts by good (affordable) e zoom lenses.. tamron is not maybe major player here, but sigma definitely is.

Good one. Still can't understand why sigma or tamron don't offer something like 10-20, 17-50/2.8, 24-70/2.8, 50-150/2-8, 70-200 lenses in sony e mount. Is it technical or something more fishy (like sony afraid of loosing sells of their overpriced lenses and make legal action about it or something)?

looks like portable HAL 9000, lol.

On article Striding Forth: Canon EOS 5D Mark IV Review (1919 comments in total)

Nice review, but again:
Please, start to use standardized environment for af testing (one of main system in cameras, which is essential, when it comes to get picture or video right). If we go on and on about dr, dxo scoring, iso etc, it's time for some controlled rail target and lightning etc, don't you say (and using same or comparable camera settings all the time)?
Now we have different guys, clothing etc running bikes in shadows, sunshine, rain, we have black dogs (you are aware black things are most challenging to af to track, right) etc etc. Ok, one test could be real world use, but one have to be standardized, as i said before. Include this in your reviews, please and while we at it, redone test also with old models, which are still popular in dlsr/mirrorles world.

design was certainly inspired by eos 50e in some way.. would be nice to see eye af system, red light af assist etc implemented again.

Nobby2016: i will buy this.

if only to to get rid of the awfully slow third party EF adapters for my sony A6000.

even the 500 euro metabones cripple AF speed.

i have a A6000 and 20000+ euro worth of canon lenses.
all EF adapters i have tested on the sony suck.

also the ergonomics of the canon (i know unimportant for the gear kids here) look much better.

when it drops to 899 euro i buy.

my ride with the sony A6000 was a nice one, but it´s overhyped by sony fanboys.
i bought it as travel camera and only added the 55-210mm lens to the kit over the years. the eos-m version of the 55-200mm is actually smaller than the sony.

all i want from a mirrorless is a bit smaller formfactor while having good ergonomics.
the M5 seems to offer that.

the 80D sensor in the M5 is great and the touchscreen looks like an amazing tool.
again you basement photogs... out in the field it´s about ergonomics. :-)

i could not care less about video.
full HD is fine for me. especially with the awesome DPAF.

Can you please tell, which ef lenses are you using on a6000? Did you try sigma mc-11 converter on them, i have seen some pretty good results on a6330 and 7II on youtube, when ironically using canon lenses, people saying metabones works better with sigma and tamron lenses..

p.s. : i agree with almost everything you said about body, size, ergonomics, usability and all that. only thing that drives me to sony/nikon cameras is theirs sensor.

Again, canon is more complete no-nonsense and affordable package (you're buying lenses too, right?) , if you ask me, for let say amateur video (but i see pros use it, too), casual photography etc, nice more ergonomic body design etc.. sure, 4k wouldn't be bad, but still..
Nice, big usable touch screen, dual af that works great, specially with new, stm lenses, these are probabyl more important things on the field, than just plain specs..

So... as a non-us resident i probably can't be part of this (not that i really want)? I belive dpreview is international portal, so why you keep coming with this us-only stuff?

Ups, keep forgetting that amazon is boss here..
