On article Shooting with the Canon PowerShot G3 X (318 comments in total)

Canon cripples one new camera after the other by NOT integrating a VIEWFINDER.
With this stubbornness it's no wonder that Canon's sales go down and down!

The statement "We also want to add some more reasonably-priced lenses"
is very promising!
A good way to win users.

As far as I know Dpreview, we will see lenghty reviews of each of these Canon models and super ratings before we can count to three ;-)

On article Hands-on with Canon's 'not-coming-to-USA' EOS M3 (553 comments in total)

The extra viewfinder is much too expensive and big.
Really can't understand why so many companies "cripple" their new models.
Some more recent little Sonys and Fujis have wonderful built-in viewfinders, if you tested these you don't want to live without... sorry Canon

On article Tamron 16-300mm Di II VC PZD real-world samples (111 comments in total)

The results with the Tamron 16-300 look much better than I had expected.
Canon's lenses are much more expensive,
some outdated and with no better results.
So Tamron offers something new, for a fair price.
One really can't complain.

CANON should renew and improve its EF-S 15-85 soon ! please

the release of this universal lens shows that APS-C still IS an important market.

would like to see samples soon

In reply to:

luchs: Nikon has an advantage because there are 3rdparty lenses. Think of Fuji and Sony A7 cameras - how much more attractive would those two be if there would be Sigma lenses available since the native lenses are quite expensive.

I think the same.
The battle against third-party lenses is simply short-sighted.
When people have to decide for a new DSLR, the one that allows to select from a greater variety of lenses is much more attractive.

Well, not bad.
Obviously you need a lot of light to make this superzoom work, many samples are shot with f9 or f11.
I still think Sigma should concentrate on making FASTER lenses!
Sigma, we need brighter apertures, please!

If this is really sharper than the 18-270, it could be a hit.

On article Sony Alpha 7 Review (1601 comments in total)

From what I read here and there, the new Sonys are "revolutionary"
- but as you write correctly, Sony has "experimented with many different concepts" in the last years - every one being hailed as the one big thing when they came out..
this makes me personally a bit reluctant to wait and see and not spend money too soon on a new concept ...who knows what Sony does NEXT, no?!!

The TIMING is interesting: just when Sigma got a lot of praise and appreciation for their recent lens 18-35 f 1,8 (the Nikon version is just out) and rumors have a list of up to 8 Sigma lenses of similar quality coming in 2014, the NEWEST camera of Nikon does not support the Sigma lenses...
Also interesting that Sigma has to update its firmware for its lenses and not Nikon for its one camera...
now the latter get a lot of negative publicity for free

Dear dpreview,
Please stop blowing up RUMORS
and get down to FACTS.
some recent "news" stories like the above are miles away from what I expect from a credible and trustworthy site about photography.
Thank you.

Very inspiring!
every photo tells a story.

The lenses are so new and the ratings for them were so high on dpreview that these firmware updates really come as a surprise.
Please find out soon about the benefits, if there are any serious
- or is it to promote the USB dock ?

On article Sigma 18-35mm F1.8 DC HSM Review (362 comments in total)

Sigma has shown courage and great skill to produce this outstanding lens.
I really hope we will see more high-quality lenses like this one soon!
Please Sigma please make a more versatile mid-zoom-range with F1,8 next.
Thank you :-)

The important question for many: has Canon improved also the OPTICAL quality of the new EF-S 55-250mm version ??
The older version is sadly not a very sharp lens, I knew some who turned to this lens as their first tele, but were quite disappointed and gave it back...

This study really hits a point. Good to know. Especially that people can rate a product who never bought it was new to me.
I think manipulations are possible because many people buy online nowadays.
But if you read reviews and tests available for the product you are interested in first, and then go into a real-life shop and see the product for yourself, you probably will not make much wrong.

On article Just posted: Our Canon EOS 70D hands-on preview (355 comments in total)

It is exciting to see that Canon has not given up the struggle to win customers back. One should not forget that millions of people have Canon lenses and that is also an argument where people turn to when they search a new camera body.
Lately there was a lot of critizing of Canon's decisions and maybe that worked ... a very interesting point because Canon has the reputation to not listen much to the wishes and suggestions of its customers - many said they don't have to because of their market position - but maybe now they DO have to?!
