MrBrightSide: You can't generally get the effect of ultra high-res video because the screens are too small; once 80- and 90-inch televisions come down in price the public will be clamoring for 4K and 8K content. So you might as well get used to shooting 4K video because my local Costco is selling 86-inch 4K televisions for under $7000 and we can expect the price to drop dramatically in the in the next couple of years.

Pass. I don't have wall space for an 86" tv. My house has windows.

Eagerly awaiting a review of the 70-200mm. I have a gap in my collection at that length. I have two Tamron VC lenses already, and happy with the quality of both (15-30mm & 24-70). Quality has been improving. It would be great if Sigma will update theirs at the same time for a bit of competition. The new Nikon is quite expensive.

On article Adobe Creative Suite 6 has been officially retired (351 comments in total)

I'll be using CS6 (particularly Photoshop) for as long as I can, or until a better alternative comes along - which I hope it will. I have no intention of paying a monthly rental.
I have already retired Lightroom (sorry Adobe, I prefer Capture One now).
Fortunately there are several really good Raw converters out there now - even for brand new bodies. Incl. Capture One, DXO Pro, On One, and even Corel. Yes, I have paid licences for the first three.

Betico: I think it is about time that Samsung takes over Sony and purchase it. Samsung has enough cash for that and they better do it before Apple does it (remember how Steve Jobs admired so much Sony).

The last thing we need is exploding Sony's.

On article DPReview Asks: What was your first camera? (766 comments in total)

Canon A1, around 1980. It was a beauty, I bought it on laybay. Used my dad's Yashica TLR before that. Now I am a Nikon guy.

montxsuz: I changed my M1-II status to "I had it". For $2K (or AU$2,800), I will hang onto my M5-II (and my 2 Panasonic bodies) until Olympus offers a serious discount. Heck, the Nikon D500 (which I already have) is selling for $1,799 right now. What was Olympus thinking? It maybe Christmas soon, but Santa ain't stopping at Olympus.

Yes, I am fortunate like that. But I was going to sell the M5II for the M1II. Keep an eye on eBay.

Lawrencew: £1849 inc 20% VAT in the UK.
(which without VAT and at current exchange rates, makes that approx $1850 USD)

So actually priced lower in the UK than the US

We may get to love Brexit yet :)

montxsuz: 86. I.e. still lower than the Sony compact Z5 which I just got for 300 bucks. Not that I am planning to use the Sony for photography.

@ Peiasdf. Why? I actually waited for the 2016 Sony model to be announced first - and decided it was not an improvement, not waterproof,last year's model became a much better buy. Also Sony is the only non-Apple fully-featured compact smart phone on the market. And I am quite happy with it thank you very much. I cannot see any reason for spending heaps of money of Apple's latest tax-evasion cult - which btw is using Sony sensors.

Dude you are the clueless troll. I suggest you take your apple and your second-hand lemon and go troll your own post.

My Sony was not used, but new. And why would I use it for a camera when I have several real cameras? Its a PHONE, dude. And btw, congrats on the used lemon.

Hibiscusbloom: If they can produce a 100-400, I will jump on it and use this combo strictly for raw action wildlife photography ...

"They" already have. It is a Panasonic Leica, and although not constant aperture, it is a high quality lens. I've had it for a couple of months now. Easily hand-held - unlike the DSLR equivalent.

The M5 mkII was my first ever Olympus camera. M1 mkII will be my 2nd. And I'd be able to leave the big Nikon DSLRs behind on long trips without too many worries.

I will definitely consider this after the price drops. Backing a Nokia/Windows phone was unfortunately a dead end. An I am not an iFan.

MayaTlab0: "Capture One 9.2’s new color management module for Tiffs gives users more accurate preview returned from retouching/round trip applications – making Tiff handling in Capture One better than ever before."

Oh yes !

Nice! Though I wish the interface between Capture One and DxO Pro was easier.

blurredvision: Could the program open D500 RAW files before this update?

No. And I am happy to report that D500 NEF images are now visible, in spite of the Capture One website not listing the camera as compatible just yet. Thank you Phase One.
