On article Zeiss introduces 'no distortion' Otus 1.4/85mm (340 comments in total)

I actually still like manual focus. Could the OEMs improve manual focus implementation on both DSLRs and Compact System Cameras.

Wished they had gone one step further and had a small LCD display where you go review the images and folders.

Should have added USB port so one could use other card types and so could be used as a conventional external drive. Close, but no ...

Looks and feels like substantially the same machine as the existing ones. Doubt that paper feed has ben improved.

Demonstrates Canon's relevancy in modern imaging. Nikon has medical, I guess, but doesn't seem as solid?

sportyaccordy: What is the advantage of this over a NEX or RX camera with Wifi syncing?

Smartphone users weren't coming to cameras, so Sony is bringing the camera to the smartphone. I see people carrying mulltiple phones these days, taking pics, etc., but many of them wouldn't think of carrying the cameras you mention, of which SAMSUNG is the leader.

forpetessake: Here is an idea for Sony how to make those QX modules more useful for the ordinary people, who have only two hands and no dirty thoughts. They should release a helmet/cap/hat with a smartphone holder, large battery, connectors, etc. Then one can use a QX module and free hands from holding the phone. The helmet visor can also flip 180 deg to show a message, "Hello, I'm a photographer. I'm shooting with Sony QX1, I'm not a spy or a creep."

It's all coming, including that new Casio concept.

Let's reinvent the camera. At least, Samsung and Sony are meeting the future more than half way. By the time you purchase and add on these sensors and lenses, clamps, whatever, it would be easier-and less expensive- to just pull out a connected camera-but if this is what the younger generation wants ...

Gesture: The body alone should be no more than $300.

Getting closer. This is the entry level model. Simply overpriced.

On article Very flashy: Ricoh unveils Pentax K-S1 DSLR (197 comments in total)

That kit lens goes for about $50 on eBay. This should cost no more than $450. It's the entry level model. Design and engineering for OVF, moving mirror, meter off the whatever has been amortized years ago.

Entry-level body, no lens, should be less than $400, if that. But that OVF and moving mirror are expensive-even though 50 years+ in the making. However, the compact system cameras are priced even higher, if anything. I'll stick to my Olympus C-3040-with the latest and greatest integrated spot metering.

Awful pricey for "entry level." And a 24mm equivalent lens for $800. $200 is enough for any of these smaller primes.

Yup.

Alex Sarbu: "The K-S1's closest competitors are the Canon SL1 (EOS 100D) and Nikon D3300, both of which have lower MSRPs (not to mention street prices) and are equally capable."
"Equally capable"? Even the viewfinders, or the AA-less viewfinder (with AA filter simulator)?
Street prices shouldn't even be mentioned when talking about a newly announced camera's MSRP.

Even if it just cosmetics—but given the image stabilization and better viewfinders than the competition it's more than that—good to see Ricoh Pentax have a little fun. What they need next is more affordable lenses or a line of more affordable lenses.

Good quick review, Jeff. I think there are lessons for Canon and Nikon, as Pentax hasn't cheapened the OVF of its entry-level. Isn't that why people should choose a DSLR-for the Optical View Finder. Will be interesting to see if viewfinder shows focus point.

Neat. Pentax Ricoh needed to build the DLSR line out (have more than one extant model) and that is what they are doing. BRAVO.

I'm sure it's more substantial in the hand, but in some of these photos, it looks like a LOMO camera.
