On article Samyang teases 'summer blockbuster' lens announcements (124 comments in total)
In reply to:

AprilW: Looks like a macro, two telephoto, and two wide-ish (maybe standard) lenses.

Looking at the pictures (and the time of day in them), I would decipher that the first one is a lens with a very large aperture for night time photography and the last is a wide angle + large aperture for astro photography?

Aroart: This is going to sell like hotcakes... Nice to see it at a decent price....

I would think that pricing is irrelevant to people who bought the camera at $3000 and lenses at ~$1000-1500 a piece.... It doesn't matter if it's $250 or $450 :D

In reply to:

endofoto: Olympus has just killed those 1'' sensor point and shoot like too expensive cameras with pen-F. D500 wont sell much although it is very good. Bec you have D7200 for birding. Pros wont use it for other purposes than birding. Pros will buy an extra D750 to carry to weddings instead of D500. If D500 was a fullframe it would sell enormously but it would kill D750. This is a show business to prove that I can do what Canon can do or cant do. For birding pros are changing to 3/4 systems, bec the long lenses are very small and you dont get neck disk hernia. Nikon has to produce a new mirrorless full frame, cheap and low weight around 1300 bucks to kill its rivals especially Sony.

@ScanSpeak
Perhaps you should read more carefully? My response was to endofotos comment "Olympus has just killed those 1'' sensor point and shoot like too expensive cameras with pen-F".

Fitted with an equivalent lens, the Pen-F is over 3x as expensive and 3x as large as the DL 24-85 and there is no lens that would match the DL 18-50.

In reply to:

Dimit: The 18-50 compared to the other two,will sell 10:1 !!!

I don't know. The 24-85 is very interesting I expect image quality to be top notch and 1:1 macro at 35mm equivalent is something you won't find in any other camera - that's definitely of interest to me.

Anyway, all of the three cameras are very interesting. Worthy competition to the Sony RX100 series. Controls seem a lot better on the Nikon.

ozturert: Nice camera. Nice AF system, good specs. Will sell a lot.

Such wow. But seriously, I'm waiting for a decent mirrorless camera from canon with features on the level of the 80D. Then I'd be very interested. Just don't forget to include a good EVF.

DPNick: Wow, so DPReview has now turned into a rumor mongering site. Great. First it turned into Pop Photo 24/7 with the daily "news", never ending Roundups to churn sales, easily digestible Olympic medal ratings, and links to resellers, but now they're publishing rumors. And then retracting them. What next, DPReview life insurance?

...perhaps you should delve a bit into the matter before commenting. Basically everyone has been talking about this before dpreview. Take a look at samsung forum for more info.

ttran88: DPR is now Digital Photography Rumors..

You must be really proud of that insightful comment. Did you come up with it all by yourself?

Link | Posted on Nov 14, 2015 at 05:46 UTC

I can't understand the whining of some (well, many) people regarding this news item. It's OK to be an NX fan (like I am), but being a fan boy in denial isn't sensible. Dpreview is trying to clear up this matter and it's about time someone did. The constantly accumulating pile of rumors and actual evidence of closed Samsung camera departments combined with unavailability of cameras and lenses is not doing anyone any good. NX users suffer the most. Resolving the matter and getting the truth out (actual information from Samsung) is for the best. Lack of response from Samsung is hard to interpret as a positive sign. Another case of Samsung's notoriously bad PR.

It's a service to the Samsung NX user base from DPreview to publish this news item and reach to Samsung for comment and I say thank you.

Arn: With all the information available pointing to Samsung's exit from the camera market (Samsung closing camera divisions all around the world while not responding at all to any of the talk/rumors), seeing a review like this is just sad. Too little, too late for Samsung?

Samsung has closed camera divisions in many countries recently,including where I live. You simply can't buy Samsung cameras / lenses in some countries any more. How is that a rumor?

In reply to:

Arn: I see people complaining about how the 5Gx looks and that tells to me that Canon has really done well with this camera. If the biggest issue is esthetics, then there's not much wrong. A camera like this is not a fashion accessory, it's a photographic tool. The 5Gx ticks all the right boxes for me - a great EVF, a fully articulated LCD and remarkably well laid out controls. These features combined with the well performing Canon image stabilisation provide are something that are lacking on Sony's RX100 series. As I'm mostly a stills photographer, so I'm not too concerned about missing RX100IV video features. So,I'm thinking this camera should appeal to a lot of people focused on stills photography.

Yeah, sorry about the typos. I was in a rush getting to work, but wanted to get it off my chest... :)

In reply to:

wootpile: They mess it up again.

A compact camera with a fully articulating screen like the G5x now has makes it less important to have a viewfinder. Fully articulating means you can always find an angle that lets you see the screen adequately in daylight.

Had they chopped the viewfinder hub it would have been pocket-able. I wish they would put such a screen on the M body (just the screen sans viewfinder bulb)

The EVF is the best addition to the camera and the one that makes me consider this over Sony RX100 variants. Anyone who comes from DSLRs or ILCs with EVFs will want an EVF on their compact. An EVF combined with an articulated screen is very tempting and the well laid out controls might make this irresistible.

I wish Tamron and Sigma would produce these kind of lenses for Sony FE-mount!

In reply to:

Temporel: Why no Sony e-mount ?

you can use Metabones, Commlite, Fotodiox and Viltrox adapters. Metabones is 4x the price of other adapters and only slightly better (if any, in some cases). You can also use any A7 camera, but I guess the A7RII works best especially with continuous AF (which doesn't work with other A7's).

On article Canon announces EF 50mm F1.8 STM lens (309 comments in total)

It's a bit strange to see people getting actually excited about this lens, as the major improvement over the old version is only the STM motor. They sure made nice optics back in 1987 (when this lens construction was first released) and it's still an ok optical formula, but it doesn't make me jump up and down in excitement. I also wouldn't say that it's good value, but the I think the price is appropriate.

Paul Verhoeven: Well, if somebody was waiting for IS, at least decent sharpness corner to corner wide open, internal focus, weather-sealing... you can continue to wait.

ondrejbobek, the MTF is identical to the old lens, it's optically tekee same.The old lens is even lighter (130g) and a plastic mount is just as good as a metal mount - read the comprehensive article by Roger Cicala: http://www.lensrentals.com/blog/2013/12/assumptions-expectations-and-plastic-mounts
