GrahamHO: I will certainly be getting a rear filter holder for my 14mm Canon Sigma. My only experience with rear filters was with the Bolex H16 I used extensively. It had a slot and the filter was in a frame making it very easy to change. Dust from film could be a problem but with normal care not really a big problem. With the Sigma it appears the filter gel will not be mounted in its own frame ( apart from the holder ) Great care will need to be taken cutting and handling the gel. But this is a lens that needs to be used with care and some planning. Hopefully there will be a gel cutting template provided with the holder. The fitting of the rear holder looks simple but for the price of an extra $20 I'll be getting it fitted to retain warranty. Those 3 retaining screws are very small. Presumably longer replacement screws are provided. It's a great lens after a week so far.

Bolex H16! ¡Vaya!

I used an H8-Rex with a trio of jewel-like Switar lenses. Kodachrome footage was ultra-snappy. I miss the fun.

Jacques Cornell: Why aren't they providing pricing for all configurations? It's not even clear what the "base" configuration includes.

What is Windows?

dcMilionis: US$1,700 WHAT !! Ok its exactly the same DSC-RX10 III camera with an upgraded Electronics and same size Articulated LCD but Touch screen (should be bigger), Ok looks great! But was expecting a Effective pixels 28 or 32 mega pixels and faster all round F2 lens at the same focal length but wider and slightly heavier lens, next time in 2019, DSC-RX10 V possibly at $2000. Yes its on my 2017 Christmas List! (I hope)

2.5kg!

That's five and a half pounds!

Gimme gimme gimme.

Joe Pineapples II: So it's equivalent to a 24 mm f/11 lens on a FF camera? For $1k I would be hoping for something a bit better.

I apologize if I've been the occasion of any affliction of spirit.

I must have struck a nerve.

I'm evacuating from Florida now, so I'm not visiting this page any more.

My major was physics, minor in math. I picked up the psychology along the way.

>>that's got nothing to do with noise equivalence

I've often said (to little or no avail) that the term "equivalence" is ambiguous as it is used around here. I was addressing "exposure equivalence" just now, but it went over everybody's head (one poster returned "no one sees exposure once you take a picture" -- see what I'm up against?).

By the way, I deleted that crack about "ego-defence" on penitential reflection -- you must've come in during the few seconds before I got to delete it.

>>No one is disagreeing with you that f/4 gives the same exposure independent of sensor format

Actually, lots of people disagree even about this most elementary point.

>>do your FF pictures get brighter if you crop them? No? There you have it,

May as well give up, dcolak. People don't understand exposure. We learned the principles in sophomore year of high school. We can't impart 12 or 16 or 20 years of education in 1000 bytes.

It's equivalent to a 24 mm f/4 lens on a FF camera, as regards exposure.

This card can store 50,000 hi-rez color photographs, and probably twice that number.

james s. kennedy: In the meantime, we have two narcisstic lunatics with freakish hairdos playing nuclear chicken.

But I love DPR, and it is OK to pause for some distractions. I usually back the woman's side of the story given the history of our species. Given that modern technology mostly ensures in focus well exposed pics, I wish I could develop a more artistic eye. But I think that is something you have to born with. My wife doesn't know an f stop from a doorstop, but she nearly always takes more pleasing photos. My approach is even a bilnd pig sometimes finds an acorn.

Shut up.

dansclic: This is a pain to click on each item. Why not just post a single page with right / left comparison where you see all the characteristics.....

I agree with everybody here—a single page communicates information much more effectively.

GarysInSoCal: NIKON... wake the F-up... you wanna play hardball?... eliminate ALL the 3000 and 5000 series cameras (they compete against themselves too much) and introduce the 6000 series. The D6000 should have an articulating touch screen, non-AA-filtered 24 megapixel sensor... 4K video... 51 point autofocus... -3ev AF. Quit pussy-footin around with crappy camera rollouts and put something Earthshattering on the market... that's what Sony's doing and they're stealing your thunder. And put a $700 price tag on it... WHY?... because you already own this technology and you make money SELLING LENSES... not cameras... ;)

How does it work?

Zdman: You also forgot to mention the lack of an electronic first curtain (EFC) for the Nikon. If you're shooting a long tele or macro this becomes a much bigger deal. Nikon is the only camera manufacturer that does not have a low vibration mode for such critical shots. Pentax has pixel shift which is electronic. Sony has EFC in all models and an electronic shutter in some. Fuji now has an electronic shutter in most models as does Panasonic and even Olympus has low vibration mode. You have to buy a 810 to get it on a Nikon though. Dpreview should be making a bigger deal about this.

Great, great observation!

You're dead right -- vibration should ALWAYS enter into the review of a camera.

A tip of Pat's hat to DP Review for offering evaluative commentary on a lens when a sample gallery is rolled out.

I hate Adobe.

Would DPR be willing to offer an evaluation?
