Serious Sam: For me the Zeiss wide zoom still looks most tempting with an A7S body. Hmm what should I sell? My kidney or liver.....

how about making money from your photo equipment?

Wes Syposz: this is getting sillier all the time, nobody talks about image creation and creativity, the equivalency of F-stop at different format is for calculating DOF and nothing to do with the metering system, if one wants to change the DOF, all one has to do is to change the distance to the photographed subject, problem with so called BOKEH, chose different background, too much silly discussion, reminds me of Monty Python episode Department of silly walks...

yep, Ministry it was

KonstantinosK: You forgot to mention that nowadays there are small mirrorless cameras, with large 3/4" or APS-C sensors, that are truly compact in size (albeit with interchangeable lenses), that very often can be had for as low as 300$ or maybe lower, and that can be used easily as P&S, with results unthinkable a few years ago. Anybody choosing a compact with a x30 zoom over an entry-level APS-C mirroless with a kit lens is simply misinformed.

exactly my point, I used to carry nikon SLRs and DSLRs, 300mm/2.8, 400mm/3.5, 20-30mm/2.8 and 55mm micro - about 25 lbs of equipment, now, I can do most of the photography with L820, I am after the images, not the technical perfection and even with the limitations of the small sensor, I am surprised to geat very good images in mico and close-up

couldn't agree more, those people who put down the super-zoom cameras never worked with them, they are the most versatile image makers, for the true artists, not a " pixel peepers, try some of them before...

Wes Syposz: why can't Nikon have a mirror-less in APS-C format, seems like everyone else does...

Coolpix was (is) a fixed lens camera, I would like the mirror-less Nikon in APS-C format (or FF) to be able to use my Nikkor lenses...

Link | Posted on Sep 18, 2014 at 20:10 UTC

looks kind of big, maybe is an optical illusion due to the use of the extreme wide angle lens with the exaggerated perspective, wrong choice IMHO to demonstrate the actual size, Eh... Dpreview

besides being a camera for the "social" purpose, this might have some appeal to the artists working in mix-media, just like the original Polaroid have inspired many artists...

LVF is not bad idea, but personally I would like to see an expendable hood for composition in bright daylight...and of course 9-10 inch monitor, I don't like my nose pushing against the camera body, lol...

On article Zeiss introduces 'no distortion' Otus 1.4/85mm (340 comments in total)
In reply to:

Wes Syposz: great lens, but for that price one can get Nikkor 200mm/2.0 VR II, which would be better for portrait and fashion photography

right, each lens has its own niche but, I considered 85mm for a portrait, not for a full length in the studio, on location, however, 200mm is more versatile and, has an AF, I believe Zeiss is meant more for the scientific purpose

considering that 6 year old Nikon D3X is around $8000, Leica doesn't seem to be so expensive...

On article Sony a5100 First Impressions Review (592 comments in total)
In reply to:

Robert Eckerlin: Yes, I too will not buy a camera without View Finder.

And as long, as the quality (among other the brightness and colors) of the image shown in the EVF does not get comparable to the quality of the images shown in reasonable Optical viewfinders: I will also not buy a camera without OVF. The pleasure of looking via VF at the photo that i will soot is an extremely important part of my overall pleasure of taking photographies.

Can I please ask experts: why is the quality of the image shown in EVF not comparable to the quality of the image shown in "reasonble" optical viewfinders (e,g. the OVF of the NIKON D5000)? Is it really impossible to build at a reasonable price cameras having EVFs with pleasant image quality?

And why does Dpreview not rate or comment the quality of the Images shown in EVFs? I would appreciate very much to read such comments, in order to motivate me from time to time to take a look at new camera having (according dpreview) EVFs with an excellent image quality.

if there are only touch screen controls on the camera available, using EVF is awkward, anyway, 3" screens are much better means to compose the image than tiny viewfinder. The only thing missing, is the display hood to make it easier to use in bright light.
For me EVF is DOA for mirrorless.
