where is the rest of the choices? my choice is not listed and have no interest in any of the listed choices so certainly would not vote for any of them for best product.

mwyyc: How well does it handle dust?

On your comparison shot of the sign in window at night, it takes about 10 seconds to fix the one from the kodak to match the other one. Maybe not fantastic, but much improved.

Bob A L: 12 things and still no flash - That should be #1.

Have you never seen the difference in bounced or off camera flash compared to the pop up that comes in cameras?

Sort of crazy for my use of apsc sensor cameras. I want the extra focal length effect. Couldn't they make one without the optics as just an adapter? That would interest me.

On article CES video: the Nikon D5600 (42 comments in total)

From the video the body and grip area does not appear to be any different than the D5500. Anybody else compare?

Sports Shooter: If I am going to fork out 3-5K for my daughter's wedding the photographer better be using Canon or Nikon bodies and L or the L equivalent Nikon lenses.

I agree 100% with sports shooter. I'm sorry, but believe if a pro is really serious and knows his stuff, that's what they are going to be using. Does it make him a better photographer, no - but at least he is using the best equipment.

Where's the flash??? - should be no further down than third.

How did the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 get to be a compact camera? It's larger than several APSC DSLR's.

Bob A L: Is sigma lying about the f1.8 - article says it performs like a f2.8 - one whole stop off?

Sounds like an awful good reason not to buy a FF camera if your f1.8 lenses become f2.8 lenses on them. If it takes that much more light that's gotta hurt. And at lower iso ranges this day and age at normal print sizes there is no difference for FF there either.

Doesn't really make any difference what they compare it to. If it's a f1.8 lens it passes the amount of light expected for an f1.8 aperture no matter what it's mounted on. They specifically state light gathering ability is like a F2.8 aperture. Somebody has to be wrong. And if they want to try to confuse with this total amount of light required for the larger sensor, as you say - it is not a FF lens - it is aspc lens.

On article The mighty PEN: Hands-on with Olympus PEN-F (155 comments in total)

When are folks going to learn aperture, shutter speed and iso control exposure, not sensor size. F 1.8 is F1.8 whether tiny sensor or 16x24" sheet film. Wonder what the aperture equivalent of an old 4x5 speed graphic was? Maybe that's where the "speed" in the name came in.
