OhWeh: Superzoom-supercrap for Crop.

For people, who never want to change lenses, but want a DSLR for their personal image.

"i can shoot action across the soccer field"
Considering 1) the slow aperture at the long end of the zoom 2) the high shutter speed required by both the long focal length and your fast moving subjects, you could be disappointed by the necessity to push the ISO too much...

Achimogata: You have now two 8.5-42.5 lenses

You are wrong. We have now two slower F5.6-8 lenses...

Is this new two half-lens kit a good one to shoot stereoscopic pictures ?

Androole: 35mm primes that weigh 1.2kg. What a world.

And my light and cheap second-hand Canon 35mm F2.0 fits my needs... And even if it does not fit my needs, I have no options : I am not young (strong) and rich... ;-)

pumrel: Why would somebody do this? I don't get it.

Some (many?) people post videos on YouTube just to make money, I guess. And this "subject" seems to be popular. Already more than 110,000 views...

whatafather: Can't understand why ppl keep doing this silly thing

thenomadsoul: Those lenses are not splashproof as they like to advertise them.

Is a 60,000 PSI splash still a splash ?

Yeah. Still a lens for young and rich photographers...

stevo23: Looks like a Sony now - blue, unnatural color. Could be this particular set and how it was shot, but non-pleasing color here.

I agree. I find the white balance on the cold side, too...
But this is something that can be fine-tuned to taste in the menu.

pentaust: Question: If the Pentax business would be gone, what other camera brand will replace Pentax be used as a scapegoat / bashing?

Nikon ?

Ben Herrmann: On the surface, these images look great - with a nice color tonality and clarity typically missing from cameras of this genre. But regardless of MP count, you can't escape the limitations of these small sensors.

Enlarge each image to 100% and you'll see the typical compression artifacts, noise, or what have you that has plagued most of these much smaller sensors, regardless of brand. But Olympus did a great job on this one. I can definitely see bringing this camera along when a heavy duty pocket camera will do.

And wallaaaaa...it has RAW capabilities which will help quite a bit in order to achieve the best IQ possible for the genre.

French people do not say "Yo Momma" at all, so no problem ;-)
The intent of my comment was only to help and people who are kind enough to help me to improve my american/english are welcome...

The French word "voilà" does not sound like "wallaaaaa" but "vo-a-la". With "vo" of voltage, "a" of "as" and "la" of "lack".
Voilà is the contraction of "vois là" which means "look there".
This is similar to "voici", contraction of "vois ici" which means "look here".

Voilà... ;-)

Soon Skynet will send a Terminator after you.

No, it does not shoot 4k, it shoots humans...

I want a software that uses AI to quickly choose the best picture available on the internet so that I do no longer need to buy a camera and I can be cured of GAS.. :-)

On article Shooting experience: how the Nikon D7500 won me over (192 comments in total)

No, this article is not about comparing MILC versus DSLR
It is not about comparing FF versus APS-C either.
But, IMHO, more about comparing the advantages, or drawbacks, of buying the latest, new, mid-range body versus an older, 30% more expensive, high-range one... if you are a concert shooter.

There is no reason to hate viewfinders. Just ignore them if you do not find them useful...

xiao_xiang: I am a Nikon FX user. Almost entirely photos, but I will NOT buy another DSLR without a removable autofocus system and a non-crop 4k mode.

These days, is just ridiculous to not have these features. The Nikon system for video is practically unusable.

So, I would go Canon here even though it lacks 4k.

Nikon - show me the D750 and D810 replacement. Get your video sorted.

P.s. I just love the buffer though!! Regularly hitting nine in the D750. Super annoying....

Please, could you tell me what is a "removable autofocus system" ?

Snapper2013: I question #3 = voyeurism/invasion of privacy????

Your thoughts.

@Snapper2013,
For sure I can see the bag and pipe. But it does not change anything to the fact that a "skirt" in a men's restroom is not common and thus funny.
About the taboo/illegal side of this picture, it depends were you live. I can say that were I live, nobody will be shocked...

It would have been voyeurism with the camera at ground level to peep under the kilt... ;-) Apart from that, I see it as a funny picture because of this "dress" in the men's restroom
