On article 2017 Roundup: Semi-Pro Interchangeable Lens Cameras (714 comments in total)

So the 7D ii and the D500 don't count as semi pro?

The first step of the tutorial should be to ditch the iPhone and get a proper camera. ;)

In reply to:

Seeky: So, the only fixed prime lens camera that has decent AF is the Sony RX1RII which is crazy expensive. Are manufacturers just lazy or is there no demand for a reasonably priced, fast fixed lens camera? I've been waiting for one for years now but I guess since everyone keeps buying the yesteryears tech in a small package there's no need for the manufacturers to innovate.

The AF on the X100f is plenty fast for most every day situations. If you need something for fast action and tracking, none of these cameras will be the right tool.

X100F does everything well and is the all around winner for me. I can say for what you pay, nothing beats it in terms of handling and customization. Image quality is top notch as well and I love the Acros film simulation with grain. It's really that good! Go buy one now, and this coming from a Leica fanboy!

Mrrowe8: Could be a fun camera especially for real photographer that view this as an art form and what to make images that have a soul or that X factor ... Not for the typical DP Review reader that whines insistently if the image is sharp from edge to edge or noise levels, etc ..however the image is incredibly beautiful because of those " flaws" ... They would rather make sharp as a tack soulless boring image ..please feel free to leave a snobby Photonerd response.. it just proves my point ...

I agree with all your points. That's why I shoot film using a vintage SLR.

Nice novelty I suppose. People looking for image quality best spend their money elsewhere.

Lol funny how my comment about the x100f video doing 4k got deleted and the x100f video removed.

ybizzle: The 5 owners of these fine cameras will no doubt appreciate Ricoh's response!

@birdseed

How is it a cheap shot when my comment was a reflection of reality? Yes there are more than 5 owners, but in the overall picture, Pentax is just a drop in the bucket. Look at their market share and then comment.

Also, how did my comment discredit Pentax's contribution to photography? I never even spoke of the actual cameras, just that the user base was miniscule which it is.

On article Hasselblad X1D-50c First Impressions Review (316 comments in total)

X1D has little advantage over the Canon 5DS-R at ISO 100/200 but does have better noise performance at higher ISO settings. If I was mainly shooting low ISO, I would be tempted to just get the 5DS-R and save a good chunk.

Steppenw0lf: What makes this camera so special to earn a gold award ?
The price ? Many others have more advanced features and better optics, but get no gold awards ... (Pentax KP or K3)
What is the idea behind these awards ?

Shell out the cash like I did and see for yourself. This coming from a Leica guy. The camera is really that good!

"...real collector’s item" lol...They must be mistaking themselves for Leica! ;)

You would have to be a complete n00b to buy this lens. Spend your money on a prime instead.

ybizzle: Panasonic CM1 would wipe the floor with this crap...

Still doesn't change the fact that a 3yr old phone has superior IQ to a new flagship.

And no one bought it because when it was released, it was too expensive, no carrier picked it up, and had poor marketing.
