LOL, The Iphone 7 and 7 plus camera is a Joke, full size samples below"
All sample are from this review:

Basically, it's no better than Iphone 6 and 6s(my current phone), water painting galore. Raw is not going to help all that much, you get more detail, and a TON more noise. Not even the same league of the S7 or the Motorala Z force.
For reference here is a 21MP image from the Moto Z force... It has BETTER per pixel detail than the Iphone at 12MP

Eigenmeat: Nice concept, but I think this initial iteration will have trouble beating a $600 A6000 pancake zoom in both size and image quality. I think a RX100 III/IV will also give better quality and much cheaper price.

After watching their video, it's very unlikely that one can assume the final image quality will be sum of the 16 sensor areas. Even at optimal focal length, only 5 (or 4 if you don't count overlap) cameras are used addictively (by stitching). At other situations, you will be thinking about 2-4 1/2.3'' sensors combining at best. I also doubt that those are 1/2.3'' sensors either. Maybe 1/3.2'' is my guess

evilmagicnut: anyone else wishing the converter could also function as a USB dock for MFA and lens firmware updates?

You don't need too. AF is always accurate on a mirror-less camera since the detection is perform on the main image sensor itself. Any AF inconsistency you see might simply due to random variation instead of a systematic correctable bias.

hey there DPR, do you know if this will work with Tamron EF mount and Canon EF mount lenses?

Hey DPR, thanks for the hands on! How well does this work with a 3rd party's 3rd party lens. For example, like EF Mount Sigma lens.

On article Lytro plans to shed jobs as it shifts focus to video (506 comments in total)

The sad thing is that a MISS FOCUSED shot from a decent P&S/phone still has MORE resolution than an IN FOCUS shot from a Lytro.

Canon so scared this well cannibalize their Rebels that they rip the EVF right out of this poor thing.

In reply to:

KennyXL: Sigma is looking to kick in the teeth of Nikon and Canon. I'd be 0% shocked if this was at least as good as Nikon's 24mm f/1.4 at a significantly lower price.

pretty sure this Siggy will be better optically :D

Waste of time, it's not like you can fit a DSLR into your pocket even WITHOUT a lens.

Instead, they should do something like the "first DSLR kit lense that starts at 24mm equivalent".

No 1'' sensor, no a chance against competition...

On article Nikon D750 flare investigated: Why we're not worried (352 comments in total)
In reply to:

Eigenmeat: So i don't know which is the worst: the flare
or...
The fact that a critical precision module like the AF sensor can be misplaced to such degree that is visible to the naked eye... I thought we were taking about micron order of precision here on $2300 camera.

OK, I agree that if you AF tune your lens, this would be fine.
Since DPR believe every lens should be AF tuned before usage, then what should lower end DSLR user do? Are you guys implying that entry level DSLR are simply un-usable outside of the slow zooms? If that is case, you should say so clearly on your entry level DSLR reviews.

The great majority of DSLR sales are entry level, and non of those bodies have AF fine tune. Even with the kit zoom, CDAF yield noticeably more consistent result than untuned PDAF based on my experience. The difference is easily as large as $100 lens compared to a $1000 lens.

You can argue that most casual consumer won't notice this. I think that is abit a like a scam, as a typical consumer think DSLR offer better quality. However, due to untuned PDAF, people can usually get much more consistent result with a good P&S than an entry DSLR.

Martin87: Sony posting a firmware update for their cameras? That's quite unusual for them

onlooker, take a look at my thread here:
http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/54173076

The FZ1000's lens is very good from 50mm onward, at wide angle though, it's not very good.
