jonf123: That is a very uninspiring photo gallery to show off the camera. I was in Iceland back in mid-September and got far better shots with an 80D. And I'm basically nothing more than a good amateur. I don't know if I can blame the photographer or the camera for this one. $2000 for this is crazy though.

"Uninspiring" is a good description.

The gallery left me with the "move along, nothing to see here" feeling.

In all fairness, these images were captured in pretty tough conditions.

Craig from Nevada: $2,000? No, thank you.

I will take a hard look at the alternatives--X-T2.

A number of people appear to have done so and with no regrets.

One of the nicest features of this camera is its price.

Maklike Tier: The tone of this article reads like a review from someone that doesn't actually like the camera, but is forced to because....you know what....it's pretty good!

Let's also not forget that the K-1 and D500 are MONSTERS (and $400 more expensive) compared to the XT2. You know, just for some perspective.

This is exactly the perspective I want from a reviewer if I am seriously considering a purchase.

evan47: Give 20mp and a viewfinder and it would be more attractive.

That camera is in the OMD section.

Seeky: Somewhere in the last picture I found a tiny sign saying no motor vehicles. I had to look really hard, but then I'm not familiar with the sign or the country. In my country it is usually a large red circle with a white bar in it. But I saw a sign of a dog. A forbidden dog.

There are plenty of sign in Death Valley informing motorists of where and where not to drive---in particular, there are off road signs all along the parks majors roads reminding motorists to stay on the paved roads.

By the time a visitor reaches this point in the park, he or she has seen plenty of warnings about staying on the roads.

Tiefenunschärfe: I like the features of this camera very much, but I dislike this tiny sensor.

Buy a full frame camera. Problem solved.

Craig from Nevada: I might buy one and get a 12-100mm lens to go with it.

Olympus, I would appreciate some aggressive pricing early in the product cycle to make this happen.

Actually, they might need to. Lots of exciting announcements this week for a lot of camera makers, but Olympus has no camera to preorder. The impulse buyer-early adapter has no camera to order (preorder) as I write this comment (I checked).

Olympus might need to gin up some interest publicity when the camera is available.

I am not sure this camera is competing with the E-M1, Mark ii

I have spent a fair amount of time visiting US National Parks. The one constant is a complete lack of awareness and common sense of visitors. They simply ignore or disregard signs and warnings (don't swim, don't walk here, don't feed the animals) It is a though they believe the signs were left for someone else and not them.

princecody: Guessing battery life has jumped to 550 shots from 400?

from 350.

There were a number of complaints about how poorly the E-M1 batteries performed in cold weather.

I want one.

On article Special K? Pentax K-1 Review (2663 comments in total)

It appears that many the negative comments directed to the reviewers are from individuals seeking validation instead of information regarding purchasing options. It is the latter that my comment addresses.

My problem stems from how the reviewers hand out Silver and Gold Awards. Consider the statement made in the review that "even in the most basic, single point AF shooting modes, the results are far from what we would expect from a modern DSLR focusing system." This is a very strong statement regarding something that is a core attribute of the camera and not a cool feature. If anything the reviewers should be admonished for slapping a Silver Award on a $1,800 camera built in 2016 that lacks "a proficient AF system". It is tough to reconcile these. Perhaps it is time to toss the Gold and Silver awards and rely on the scores and written reviews. The consumer might benefit. You guys are too nice about it.

I find this sort of article very useful--putting the camera to work in the sort of setting it was designed. It is a nice complement to a formal review.

4 miles in and out is taking the camera for a spin. I wonder how the camera will hold up for entire season?

Thank you. I appreciate the article.

The market may be shrinking, but Sony is building products people want to buy.

Link | Posted on May 5, 2016 at 14:22 UTC as 3rd comment

More people are taking pictures than ever before. The thing is most do not use what we think traditionally as a camera to do this. The bottom line flows from this.
