On article Ultimate OM-D: Olympus E-M1 Mark II Review (1247 comments in total)

The menustructure is a step backwards?! At least. Rant on... "Tried one extensively. Must say that the 4 earlier m43 bodies from oly I had (epl1 epl2 em10 em5ii) were much better menu wise. And they were an absolute dog already. Olympus WHAT ARE YOU DRIN/THINKING? It's 2016 going 17. Equipment should empower me, not make me mad every other day. Sorry, but I so much want to love these beautifully crafted bodies. So came back 3 times." Rant off .. Not anymore.

photolando: Well, according to B&H it's only about $45 more than the Nissan i40. From the dimensions it is a bit beefier. I always feel like the i40 looks so "toyish" on my X-T1. This Metz isn't a lot bigger (1/4" wider) but looks a little more professional. Not that I really care what people think but doing corporate events I want them, the clients, to think I'm using professional equipment. The attendees don't care but the client might. Perception does play a factor. I'll pick one up and give it a shot. Pun intended.

Try the i60 on your X-T 1. It's a match made in haven.

perry rhodan: Nissin i40 anyone? It's a superb flash. Small and powerfull. 4xAA wireless and all work perfectly, on ALL platforms inclusing Fuji. For 179 a piece it is a no brainer. They even work great on multiplatform by using slave settings and if needed FEC.
It's good the Metz is here also as it is always nice to have choices.

The i40 does wireless TTL . See..
http://www.nissindigital.com/i40.html
Only the Fuji version is under construction. Due to the Fuji camera flash system itself. All my nissins i40and i60 work flawlessly with all systems. Have canon Fuji sony oly nissins. They work perfectly also in wireless TTL.
Even older system and dslr's work with the 2 position slave functions of the nissins. My i40 for canon works perfect in wireless (non TTL of course) with older sony and Panasonic compacts. Also the nissinS work flawlessly wireless with the olympus Tg4. Ergo... they have to pry it from my cold hands.....

Value i40 and i60 is phenomenal. And no... I do not work for them.

Vanitas Photo: I think many are throwing this camera under the bus just because it isn't aimed at them...

Most camera manufacturers drive the most of their income from entry level gear, that's a reality for Canon, Nikon, Sony, Olympus, Pentax, etc. And Fuji has to start to get income in the same level too (this also serves the purpose of cheap entry into the system which sooner or later they will upgrade).

BTW on social media and selfies: In Hong Kong and other regions of Asia Casio cameras like the EX-TR70 sell like hot pancakes and mind you they aren't cheap (700 bucks) and guess what? it is a selfie oriented camera (retractable handle for selfie and wireless connectivity with smartphones, people are fed up of smartphones for selfies there.)

Vanity is a comodity that is in high demand thanks to social media and camera makers would be dumb to not cash in.

There's the XT-10, XE-2s, XPro2, XT-2 for the serious photographer.

Yes! BUT they need a pancake kit zoom! The olympus epl8 with the pancake is currently the most vlogged cam in history (celllphone excluded)

auggenblick: Interetsing devlopemnst: Cameras are designed to make self portraits easier. Putting the 'self' beocmes mainstriam in a selfish world. Those cameras further reduce needs to ask somebody to take a pic and possibly get to kanow a new person...
This camera has still large , extending zoom lens , far fro being pocketable. Why not put more emphasis to develop a more compact collapsable , high quality zoom lens ( Sony alpha 6000 series) which would also better fit to a now even smaller designed XT 10 body. Small bodies , big lenses something not right...

Sorry but the compact kitzoom from sony is ... below mediocre. However even a kit with comparable low IQ would be a great addition for the targeted audience for Fuji.

Nice, but for the target audience: Fuji must offer a PANCAKE KIT ZOOM! Get it Fuji? No more YTY new bodies needed. Even a mediocre kitzoom like the sony would do fine for this target group.

Just bought the M3. Having used the XT 10 for 6 months, I let it go.

You sure know how to tickle the readers. The XA3 ? Really? No EVF and mediocre AF? Slightly plasticky? Is hollow plastic. Menustructure?
Not gonna react on this any more. It's useless.
Out.

CamFoto: I see a lot of chromatic aberration in the IQ section.
Is that a problem with the lens? I think the lens used in those shots should be clearly stated.

Have a look at the bottom right of every sample. Comparing efm 22 to the 56R fuji. Seriously hilarious even at 5.6

Testing with lenses with a variety in price factor of 8 ??! The efm 22 / olympus 45 and the fuji 56 R?! Seriously DPR? LPM, corners, wide versus normal.. Etcetera! You can not take your test serious any more yourself, can you?

Think you are right here. Well time will tell.

My remark is directed at the iregularities of DPR in the battery stamina. Some earlier reviews of other compacts are very negative when they achieve only 250 or so shots according to cipa standards. And now 220 is good enough? I'm not whining here, just pointing out the iregularities in DPR reviews. Testers clearly have a soft spot for the sony series here, and they have the right to have this. But.. you know fan or fun? Whatever.

On article Metz mecablitz M400 flash unveiled at Photokina (46 comments in total)

Nice that the once top tier flash company is finally getting to grips with the demand for serious smaller lighter. Hope they get QC right. Would be a nice contender for the nissin i40/60 series. Every flash has positives and negatives for the individual user. Competition is always good for us users.

Come on Barney. Or was DPR hack@d just before this opinion was Aired?

Now I think of it. Must be the cause for this peculiar un-DPR like behavior. I would lay-out the blame on something like this. Oh well perhaps this is the reason that I'm just an unpaying (and unpaid) poster.

As the absolute unrivalled number 1 photography site, for me DPR can get away with just about anything and rightly so. So nuff said.

Just the way I felt after the opinion piece Barney. ;-) ?!

My last statement is what counts. I will keep on visiting, posting and participating DPR even if these peculiar pieces keep popping up. Love your site and work. BUT sometimes there are Anomalies.

BTW Nice to see there are 3 DPR Staff favour items now ;-)

Sorry not a very comprehensive piece. Very peculiar behavior for a respected site to post these ramblings. A bold opinion statement for attracting klicks and a mellow piece that lacks cohesion. And I'm no fanboy. Come on guys get a grip. ;-) . There are better first views around. MUCH BETTER.

One of my favourites too. Next to the AF 1 twin and the mju mini-1. Ocassionaly I shoot some of the older compacts I have. Just for fun!

A bit off topic, my all time fun favourites are the Leica mini and the minilux (both still work after shoting some 500 roles of T-max, buying the CR 123a in bulk now, the rechargables for it don't work well)

More off topic, the fuji Q1 is my all time favourite digital memory maker. It's IQ is marginal. But it brings a smile on many faces when I get it out on parties;-)

Happy shooting!
