On article Report: Ricoh announcing cost cuts in face of crisis (285 comments in total)

I hope Ricoh manages to remain profitable in this difficult market, keeping all of their brands alive with healthy products. For better or for worse, electronic equipment has become less and less servicable. The new business model is: 1. buy, 2. insure, 3. replace with new. That includes printers, phones, cameras and TVs... Ricoh has to adapt, just like everybody else.

So they're actually charging for the right to take pictures, not forbidding it. Some think of ways to charge for anything and everything?

Seriously!?
No mention of the Pentax HD 21mm f/3.2 limited!? It's such a wonderful walk-around lens for the Pentax aps-c cameras. There aren't many high-quality pancake wide lenses out there.. The Pentax limiteds are hard to miss, and they have an ENTIRE LINE of compact high-quality primes for aps-c: 15, 21, 20-40, 35 macro, 40, 40xs, 70...

And the Ricoh GR fits in a pocket so easily...

So.... is the sensor bigger than on other cameras? How about the lens?

In reply to:

raminm: I come here to read news about photography and camera industry and also receive valuable and useful feedback from other members who have something useful to teach their audience. I am tired of all those who complain why DPR publishes articles about certain brand or cameras they don't like. Frankly, I find DPReview is too tolerant of these group of people because they are abusive and distract those with helpful comments and remarks to write in the 'Comments' section. They have ruined the who atmosphere into trash talk.
To DPR: could you please install a moderator in the comments section to make sure only those people who are geniunely interested in the product are allowsed to comment on it. Can you please ban those who complain why an article is just published from making any comments on the article itself. If they are unhappy, they can simply send a private message to DPR and make their complaints. We, the rest are here to learn not to be disturbed by all the the nonsense.

I agree, but what do i do with the popcorn?
After all, clicks pay... For constructive reading, just read the article and skip the comments.

rbach44: Can someone explain to me how this is a pro camera besides the fact that Sony's marketing says so? The feature set looks like a mid-level SLR with 20 FPS (with the right settings), an AF-ON button, and some autofocus tricks. How does that make it a pro camera anymore than say a D600?

it has an ethernet port.

I can't believe you haven't done the bike test yet! Or have you?

In reply to:

Jorginho: 36 MP K1 costs 40% of this 24 MP FF cam so by the logic some applied a few months ago on some cam that also is a very good sportshooting cam...this is an absurd price...Right?

Ehmmm, i have a K-1. This is a very, very different beast, 20 fps, no blackout and 700 AF points! Wow!

Oh, my! Sony is going after the big boys' pro market! A 400/2.8 must be in the making.

phoenix15: And Ricoh is sleep tight.

They do have 16 MF lenses in production.... But only 4 of those are "D" optics from the digital era, and 7 years have passed since the 645D. Fuji should send them a thank you letter, for throwing their market leader's advantage down the drain.

straylightrun: Full Frame shooters on suicide watch

Yes, can we make a FF-shooters-anonymous forum?
Fuji is really following up with a wonderful set of optics. Their focal length and aperture choices sound very reasonable, very much to my liking. All i need is a winning lottery ticket.... :'(

On article Light's L16 camera is in final stages of testing (305 comments in total)

So it's a Fiesta, and a Punto, Polo, Corsa, Ibiza and a Fabia all in one.... I think i'd rather have a (single) Carrera.

Now I'm thinking of all the things my 2-year-old would like to fill it with.... Legos, Barbies, Thomas and friends, complete Playmobil swimming pool set, including the water.... I'd give it a life expectancy of one week at best.

These are stunning, especially for a zoom. Is there a FF wide-to-normal zoom that can do this?

On article Sigma 135mm F1.8 Art Sample Gallery (123 comments in total)

This is really, really nice. Absolutely no LOCA to be seen and extremely sharp (when everything is still). Its ability to isolate the subject is admirable. Maybe we can get one in Pentax mount please? it could use some stabilizing!
