muljao: Do Nikon have any dx equivalent? Is there a third party equivalent?

Sure, Nikon fields several 24mm primes, that work out to 35mm equiv on a dx body.

This is a downright inspiring piece of prose. It's taken me quite a while to wean myself from tele lenses, but with the help of a Ricoh GR I've weaned myself pretty well to the 35mm (eq) crop, which is a nice segue to the Fuji X100V I just acquired. I'm looking forward to continuing my conditioning to 35mm. Thanks for the additional prod.

goodytwoshoes: Could someone over at dpreview please check
if the EVF and LCD on the X100V still BLACK OUT
when shooting the camera in VERTICAL position while wearing
POLARIZED glasses ?
All previous models showed that behavior !
Thank you so much !

The X100s prior to the latest didn't have OLED viewfinders; the X100V does. Rest in peace.

I wear polarized sunglasses, and I'm able to use viewfinders in an Olympus E-M10 III and a Sony RX100 VA. Check it out. And check this forum.

OLED prevents the blackout.

Expect the usual fault-finding. It's big, sure, but we knew that all along. I mean, no one mentioned the new miniaturized X100 model.
As for my wants, the tilt screen alone is sufficient justification for the purchase. But I'm looking forward to everything about the camera, and I'm only sorry that it's going to be so long until the late March release date of the my new black "V".

Re your comment, "Let's do it again in ten years": There won't be any more cameras, as we know them, ten years from now. They might be hyperphones, or more likely, something we can't even conceive of now.

SantaFeBill: Add-on lenses, grips, cases, external lights - Wonder when someone will make a gadget bag for cellphones and all the accessories - or have they already?

Yes, you beat me to it. And don't forget a Polaroid filter, an ND filter, a lens shade, a gimbal for video, tripod. Then the light stand, umbrella, soft box (all these for selfies) ... . It's all downhill from here, the end of the smartphonecamera madness.

On article Hands-on with the Ricoh GR III (650 comments in total)
In reply to:

Och Elo: IMO this is a true update that addresses some of the major shortcomings (imo) of the last gen. The older 16mp sensor was quite bad in low light, I'd guess this 24mp sensor will be at least 1 stop better in low light and DR. Adding in-body IS helps this further.

I also enjoyed the crop modes (simulating 35mm and 50mm I believe), I'm guessing this one retains those features but with 24mp you have more ability to crop.

The GRII was quite a delight to shoot with. That being said, I sold it and probably won't pick this up. For a pocketable 28mm equiv for travel snaps, phone is fine for me now. This thing is such a street photography machine that if I was still doing a lot of street shooting I''d pick this up in a heartbeat, but if street photography is not something you do fairly regularly, I honestly think this might not be the camera for you. my opinion, of course.

Then, what camera is, in your opinion?

Please! Nice try, but how about finding another outlet for it? It doesn't belong here.

On article Panasonic DC-LX100 II Review (1123 comments in total)

I notice that if you use the comparison graph on the Conclusions page of the Mk II review, the original LX100 never scores lower than the new model, and is on several counts better than the Mk II. How are we supposed to understand that?

On article Lensbaby Sol 45 impressions and sample gallery (111 comments in total)

The best lens Lensbaby has produced for us M43 camera users. Excellent! I can't bring myself to use another lens, since I've had the Sol. To bad there's not a counterpart for DX users. They won't be able to understand the creative oportunities of this thing.

In reply to:

Hautedawg: Is there a reason this is an "iphone" award? The constant referral iPhone users as if they're annointed due to their phone brand (which is inferior to most Android phones) reeks of snobbery and Apple slobbing.

And I know I can't be the only person who thinks these photos are mediocre.

You just might be. Stop eating lemons for breakfast, and maybe things will look up for you.
