oysso: My first impression is that there are some room on the ergonomy side. Too much reliance on screen for adjustments . There should have been more buttons and wheels.

Buy a CaNikon, so you'll have plenty of knobs, levers, weels, joysticks, dials, and more buttons :)

grapposoda: What's the point with that oversized front lens element? I've seen similar in other designs too, but can't figure it out. Suppresses flares somehow..?

For that price, i want a big front glasses that claims "look, i'm using a big lenses with a huge piece of glasse, i'm a pro" :)

Looks like a Panasonic µ4/3 lenses.

Who cares about EVF ? You can tilt the rear screen to take selfies. And with 18mm wide, that's very cool for group shots. :)
BTW, you can put an external EVF if you want to look more pro ;)

On article Special K? Pentax K-1 Review (2604 comments in total)
In reply to:

Cistron: I'm sometimes wondering what trade-offs take place behind the scenes when camera designs are finalised. The lack of a AF joy-stick (or selector otherwise) is always puzzling. But for a camera that can draw an a wide range of existing K-mount lenses I'm not sure why the viewfinder was limited to 0.7x. I wouldn't call that large when most better manual film SLRs where about 0.85x (OM-1/2 at a whooping 0.92x).

Btw, @Richard Butler, does it come with a decent focusing screen that isn't completely smooth?

When you long-press on OK button, camera switch in AF point select mode and you move the AF point with the four arrow around the OK button, pressing again the OK button set the AF point.

makofoto: In the movie industry we had drop-in Grad Filters for decades. Mainly for long telephotos. They tended to be ineffectual but hopefully this will work with wider lenses. Filters behind a lens will change the back focus by something like a third of it's thickness. This doesn't effect long lenses but definitely will effect wide lenses. It will be interesting to see how this issue of physics will be dealt with. The 30.5 mm internal Tiffen filters for my Cooke 18/100 T3.0 lens were ultra thin. http://public.fotki.com/makofoto/work/miscellanous/305mmtiffen.html

back or front focus are a problem with phase focus, with contrast focus, there is not problem.

David Zamora: Interested in the grain simulation and improved focusing.

"grain simulation", there so little noise with X-Trans that Fuji needs to add some noise to mimic Bayer sensor :)

OliverGlass: @DPR
Though it's a minor thing--- how is the rendition of greens/foliage now with the new sensor and processing?

A problem ? where ? I shot green chrismas tree and process with lightroom, and foliage render nicely. I try silkypix, rawtherape, lightzone, and there is little difference at 100% viewing, but when reduce to Flickr post, all images look the same.

Bueche: Does the x-trans III have the same devastating effect on everything that's bright green/yellow/orange, just as earlier versions of x-trans?

I have no problem at all with Lightroom and christmas green tree, it render picture with great colors and resolution.

The Name is Bond: Even at a much lower resolution of the x-pro 1's LCD, I've ended up never using the optical viewfinder as the LCD was really so good that I've never felt limited or the need to upgrade.

But then, I've never spoiled myself by trying a newer camera.

I wear glasses and the EVF is almost unusable, it's hard to see image corner. I use mainly the OVF. I try the X-T1 EVF and there is big advance in 4 year.

AdamT: 24mp - great - shame they didn`t ditch X-Trans :( this would have been an excellent opportunity to do so .

Why ditch X-Trans ? this tech provide lower noise and don't need low pass filter.

Why every comment are complains ? Those lenses looks great, they cover FF sensor, so with an APS-C sensor they perform at their best. They all share the same filter, same max aperture. They are not plastic lenses and they come in X mount :) For X, only the 35mm is not interesting due to the fuji Offer.
On their site, they say "Without autofocus and electronic aperture control also for the version with SONY NEX and FUJI X mount systems" for me it's mean that they are pure manual lenses, with real time aperture control. So you focus at f2.4 and close to the desired aperture to take the shot.

Nice lense and sensor, you can even read the advertissement on the billboard of the conservatory "The Conservatory allows limited professional photography by PERMIT only" :)

straylightrun: Watch as this comments section fills up with confused people mistaking this entry level mirrorless body for an enthusiast model and complaining it doesnt have an EVF.

Sony A6000 with kit lense 16~50 cost 640€ and it have an EVF and a hot shoe. I guess this is why people complains. And it is the old 18mpx sensor ??? Maybe Canon found an unused stock and try to sell them...again :)

Miss some pic with the new keystone mode, focus bracketing/stacking and live composite.

Metabolikku: Olympus has been selling the same sensor since the beginning of 2012. That is quite a feat!

They imitate Canon :)

On article Picture this: Our revamped galleries system is now live (115 comments in total)

Please make Gallery working on phone. Only Chrome on my Android can display the gallery, Firefox and Dolphin show the exif panel full screen, with no drag avaible. On chrome, you can hide this huge panel by dragging it to the right.
And the "X" button close the selected gallery, not the info panel.

Scottelly: 960 fps at 1080p? That alone makes this camera worth buying. The 4K capability and weather sealing are the bonuses. I think I'm going to get one of these beasts.

The problems with the RX10 II are . . .

It can't shoot as fast as Nikon's old 1" sensor cameras.
The screen only tilts, but does not twist/articulate.
It takes an FW50 battery instead of the bigger FM500H battery.
The lens is not interchangeable.

How can it do 1/32,000 second shutter speed?!?

It's not 960 fps at 1080 :

Look at the seven slide : "In Quality Priority mode, 960/1000fps mode yields only 1136 x 384 pixel capture, with 480/500fps made from 1676 x 566 pixels and 240/250fps upscaled only slightly from 1824 x 1026 capture."

1/32000 is doing with the electronic sensor. No mechanical moving part, electronic is silent, quick and deadly :)

On article Leica Q In-depth Review (1126 comments in total)
In reply to:

HowaboutRAW: So far, I've missed a comment noting the 50,000 ISO.

Hint, when Leica lists the top ISO, that's usually close to what anybody would use the camera at--so unlike Canikon/Sony/Pentax/Olympus/Samsung.

If this Leica is easy to use at ISO 25,000, in raw, that's a big deal.

For what i see from the photo, 25600 is noisy, and even 6400 is not that good, so 50 000 is just for emergency use
