Julian: So what exactly does the stacked CMOS sensor technology bring to the table?
Clearly a faster frame rate, but what about dynamic range for more static shooting, is that improved by stacking? just curious to see if anyone knows anything about this tech.

Interesting, thanks for the reply/info. Eliminating rolling shutter is a major step forward for video in an interchangeable lens camera.

Julian: Some really good prizes there (the new sigma Arts are awesome), is it restricted to UK entries only - or is it open to the world? I went looking for the rules of entry, but not found them yet...

Good stuff, I would happily pay the import tax on one of the Art lenses (not that there's any chance of me winning, but worth a shot).

Good write up, and a very interesting camera.

I read this as 14.5% of the people are paying 79% too much.

Bill1969: Smartphones killed Compact Cameras, Calculators, GPS Navigators, PDAs, Wristwatches, Cell Phones, MP3 Players, Voice Recorders and Flash Lights.

It will probably Kill Credit Cards, Blood pressure and Blood sugar devices, Portable Games and who knows what in the future...

Except they're more dumbphones than smartphones, they should change the name.

Debankur Mukherjee: sad news.........the end of all offline magazines are quiet obvious ...........its the digital age......

I still get the British Journal of Photography on subscription and consider it worth every penny. Tragic to see Popular Photography fold though, I have a few back issues from when I was in the US.

I have back ache from carrying my 50 1.4 Art around - and now its gonna double up!
Still have to say its worth it with the 50.

This must have taken a hell of a lot of time and effort to put together, really impressive!

On article Hands-on with Ricoh's compact Pentax KP (634 comments in total)

The removable grips are a really good idea, as potentially is the inbuilt stabilisation (provided it can be switched off when needed). Always good to see a camera company trying to innovate.

A colleague of mine has a Leica - think it must be the M9, he brought it around and I took a shot or 2 and really liked it. One thing he said that really put me off (outside of the price tag) is that you need to send the camera back to Leicas factory every 2 years or so for a focus mechanism retuning, otherwise the rangefinder focus system is not accurate. Is this still the case with the M10? (it sounds like the focus mechanism is very similar to previous incarnations..)

Yes I think I agree for Hasselblad's case, a bit less so for Volvo though.

In reply to:

LukeDuciel: 1inch sensor, 4K 60p, leaf shutter, 5-direction obstacle avoidance. All my dreams come true

..... just several months AFTER I bought Phantom 4 AND a Mavic Pro... and I was affirmative I bought the best drones on the market back then.

Oh well, DJI's pace is too fast :(

Sure I understand (must be a bit gutting), but looking at it again in 6 months time and you'll just think what the hell and get on with the kit you have.
