DVT80111: Since new camera has IBIS, I hope they remove the OSS feature and give us cheaper and more robust lens.

Camley: even if Sony claims that, I have never seen a clearly visible improvement when having both. On Panasonic the gain is easily 1 stop or more.

I rather bet on a dual IS (like Oly and Pany) in the next generation of bodies

When the price will be lower, this can make a nice little pocket camera with a pancake lens...

Josh Leavitt: If Nikon partnered with Samsung to put their 1" DL sensor technology into the Galaxy phone lines, or even a subset of the Galaxy phones, I'm pretty sure it would reshape the way professional photographers view smartphones. The trick would be making a pancake telescoping zoom lens compact enough to not otherwise detract from the "phablet" looks and ergonomics. I'd take a 1" sensor smartphone over a dual 6mm sensor smartphone any day of the week - especially if it included proprietary Nikon imaging technology.

People have voted digital zoom is enough...

The brand or the sensor size is not the issue.
It's cultural.
"Professional" or "serious" photographers are not going to take seriously a phone. No matter how good it is.
Maybe in the next generation, in 20 or 30 years things will change...

Optical zoom? There are laws of physics, you know... Unless you want a soft accordion like on those old cameras?

You know that Panasonic already did that over 2 years ago, right?
(google Panasonic Lumix CM1)

Ouch.
I know that many people here waited those, and I feel sorry for them.
Come on, Nikon, find a good idea.
Quick!

ttran88: The worst part of the 100mm is the waiting game. Why don't they announce and release a week or so like iPhones.

Was about to buy a 85mm GM last week on ebay, now I'm so glad I lost the auction!

zeratulmrye: Hi Barney,

Did you get any chance to test the focus?

I'm wondering if this STF lens support PDAF or not. Can't find any information on Sony's website!

Thanks for the reply in advance!

Sony's website says it does... (but maybe only with A7rII and upcoming models?)

Peiasdf: I wonder if I should get 55mm F1.8 ZA and FE 85mm F1.8 or 24-70 GM. Already have 16-35 F4 so that covers wide angle and 35mm.

I'd say 55mm + 85mm
Better, faster, longer, lighter than the zoom. But less convenient, of course.

Samples! We want samples! :)

On article Hands-on with Ricoh's compact Pentax KP (634 comments in total)
In reply to:

Confused of Malvern: Like:
Size /weight
5 Axis image stabilization

Can live with:
New grip

Very disappointed with:
No top panel LCD
Only one SD card slot(?)
No apparent improvements to AF system compared to K3ii
Ridiculously small flash
D109 battery
Did I mention the lack of a top panel LCD?

Don't need:
All those dials with so many customisable user settings
ISO 819,200

I'd like to replace my slightly aging K5 but I can't see me buying a KP

Keep your K5... If any, upgrade to K5IIs... I regret having sold mine, definitely the best DSLR under $1k EVER

On article Hands-on with Ricoh's compact Pentax KP (634 comments in total)

I globally like Pentax DSLR but here I have to say that I don't understand where they are going...
Design is... special, improvements are limited, ergonomy seems more complicated on each new model. I expected at least some kind of on-sensor PDAF for a better liveview/video AF.
Disappointed.

On article Throwback Thursday: Fujifilm X100 (173 comments in total)

I still own my X100, I don't use it much but it's still a fun and very capable camera. Very slow (especially AF) to today's standards but anyway it has a couple of (almost) unique features that I like, like the viewfinder and the very high x-sync.

ark747: One rainy day, make a list of all necessary equipment, print it and laminate in plastic.
Put this card in your photo backpack. Ready! You can spend saved money on something more useful

You don't need the same equipment for different jobs

I would have loved to have such a thing when I was a professional photographer! I lost or forgot so much gear...
Great idea anyway!

In reply to:

Tariag: Impressive results considering the price of the camera and lenses.
I just have to say that I don't like at all the cat-eye shaped bokeh, but it's my own taste.
Which sensor is it? Panasonic or Sony?

My bad, read it to quicky. Apologies.
