artwalaszek: It's an interesting thought experiment ... but why not just get a Ricoh GR? It has an outstanding sensor-lens combination, is smaller and cheaper than the Fuji X100f, and has a very intuitive UI. Not surprisingly, it is superb as a street camera - and I've also found it to be great for landscapes and for monochrome conversions. (For what it's worth, I shot my top two photos on Flickr with respect to number of favorites with the Ricoh GR.) If you must have 35mm, the Ricoh GR has a crop mode, or you can just crop during post-processing.

Admittedly, the Ricoh GR is overdue for a significant update - but I think it remains the best serious, pocketable camera on the market.

Are you serious? I think the GR looks great. Its not loud or try hard retro it is function over form and thats what makes it look great...to me.

Tommi K1: These are beautiful as all the previous ones. But they really get boring all of them because the process is the same. It is like you would be running through a St. Petersburg Hermitage Museum hallways and the hundreds of thousands artwork that are located there. Just after some point your brains can't process them anymore as "you have seen all".

This is one reason why if you are going to do photography or so, you shouldn't look how others have done it or overall look too much others work as you will just start either repeating them or lose the track of your own style.

Yeah you really showed him Tommi K1. How dare he show us beautiful photos in a series. Have you not heard that there is nothing new under the sun anyway.

Awesome! I remember using the Sony Mavica for work. Going on site visits and a stack of floppy discs on the passenger seat.

#12 is amazing, surreal

Ace of Sevens: If they have come out with this a few months earlier, I might have gotten it instead of the Sony 28mm F2.

Yes I would have had a serious look at this lens too before I bought the FE28...but I must say I am very pleased with the FE28 in it's own right.

Wild Shooter: I think these competitions are rigged. Other than the winners which are awesome, I didn't even get a mention for my shots which I personally believe are better than a few people sitting on the beach.

Wild shooter, I like your confidence! Of your 4 shots I like the first. I will follow you on Instagram.

justmeMN: Sony already forecast that sales in their Imaging Products and Solutions segment would be down by 22.5% this fiscal year. Now, economic turmoil caused by Brexit will probably decrease sales even further. In addition, Brexit caused the yen to rise, which will further decrease profits. Yikes!

Fuji, Damn you got in first with the fan boy line! I thought the discussion here was about the impact of the earthquake on Sony production?

Fujica, you name and views sound so balanced and unbiased. Please tell me more about why Sony cameras are so bad.

Kona Mike: Nice video, wrong website.

I come to DPR because I want to see content like the a6300 vs 80D side by side, shooting the same subject, at the same time. With both cameras in the proper mode. What is so hard about that? You don't necessarily need a perfect standardized AF test when you stand side by side with both cameras and blast away. Let us see what they can do.

You had the D5 and 1D X II at the same event, yet you failed to show side by side burst sequences of the same subject from the same moment? Why, everyone wants to see that.

I think it is cool you built a kayak, and I hope DPR paid for it. However, I don't come to DPR to read about that. You did try to mix in a little camera talk, ok. Possibly give more details on how actually made the video, otherwise IHO that is missing the target audience of DPR.

You have access to most new cameras, I want to see them head to head. Your studio test is good, but the rest of your reviews make any comparisons apples to oranges.

Kona Mike is entitled to see everything and anything he wants based on the money he spends to access this website.... : )

Jozef M: Sponsored content????? Yes, I've read the FAQ about this, but ..... this is playing with fire ...
I'm not liking this Canon sponsored hidden advertising.

I thought it was sponsored by the ruthless, capitalist, giant, handmade kayak company.

I'm loving these videos. Mushroom picking, ale and kayak making it's almost as if you have a life and you use a camera to take photos of it! Please do more....don't care which camera you use.

gravelhopper: To the people who are bothered by photos depicting human suffering:

You are asking to be spared with that kind of pictures.

I suggest an alternative approach: you contribute to a world where we have less suffering, especially the kind that humans inflict on humans. Every individual contributes in some direct or indirect way to the human condition, thus has the power and the possibilities to influence how that condition develops.

To those who claim that only an insignificant number of people experience some kind of suffering: do your research and get a better feeling for our reality. Denying facts doesn't make them nonexistent.
Cheers.

Well said! Unlike other art forms photography has the aura of reality so throughout its short history using it to forward a political message is one of its strengths. It's a real first-world problem/privilege to be annoyed at being shown images of poverty and suffering in far off countries or just around the block.

ogl: Like nothing

Photographers try and find beauty, feeling, emotion...somthing in everything they see. You look at these images by other photographers and 'like nothing'...more of a reflection on you I think. Cheer up dude.

Lovely little camera but I just sold my Ricoh GR because I realised I really like to frame my shots with a OVF or EVF. Because its a fixed lens a basic OVF would not be too hard to incorporate? I shall wait.

cheetah43: What is it about a 3.5-5.6 lens in a small sensor camera to rave about? And that hideous grip on this compact! As if it were a sledgehammer!

it's called a pancake, kit lens on a CSC. It' not a compact camera...and it's not a full frame DSLR, it's not ment to be, and if you don't know why people might buy it, or don't like it...it's only stuff man.

In reply to:

joyclick: Sony has been very bold and innovatinve daring to go where none do but they still suck at a thing or two which matter immensly,the user interface being the most important among them,as also excellent but affordable lenses offering most useful focal lengths and apertures

So until they get their act together I wil go for either Panasonic or Olympus.

It's not so bad chicken little. The fn button helps a lot and I rearly need to go into the menus once I have customised the camera. I happily take photos and make adjustments with the camera to my eye. I rearly even think about the UI

Dirk Nuary: I guess it'll reach up to 2k comments. I think Sony now is the most popular camera.

Well lots of comments are negative...I don't know why but Sony cameras get a lot of hate. Many people think these are the worst cameras ever and make sure they tell us about it. Each to their own...For me the A6000 is ideal it suits may needs and budget.

zlatko: The 24-70/2.8 is heavier than Canon's excellent 24-70/2.8 version II. And the 85/1.4 is heavier than Sigma's or Nikon's 85/1.4.

By how much?

In reply to:

rodderslw: So can you shoot JPEG and RAW together thus use the front dial fun but also have the RAW as the digital negative?

Then why are people so upset bout the front dial : ) ....or just shoot in raw and leave that dial alone. Yes I presume the EV would show the JPEG/filter view.
