On article Olympus announces PEN E-PL10 with a flip-down screen (86 comments in total)

Flip-it-to-left-flip-it-to-the-right, Ima-knock-that-MILC-out-like-fight-night!
There is only one way to flip the screen that makes sense and its actually useful and yet they continue with this nonsense! What's the matter with these camera makers really?!?

On article Sony a7R IV review (1486 comments in total)
In reply to:

FrancoPhoto: Cameras have gotten to stage of development that on almost every new camera review my main take away is something like "well, that's a fine camera". When I'm lucky to really use any of them sometimes I can say "that's a great camera". I just can't "hate" cameras anymore, no matter the brand. If I could grab a sony a7rIV, or even a III, I can't imagine been able to want anything more, camera wise. Without the intention to bring anyone down, I'm a little sorry for people that just can't find satisfaction with their gear, no matter how high end or how new they are.

Definitely. Camera should come with open airline tickets to a photo destination of your choice and a once a week hall-pass so you can cut out of work and go take pictures.

On article What the Z50 tells us about Nikon's APS-C strategy (676 comments in total)
In reply to:

Korinth7: As a 60 year old “enthusiast” with neck and back issues who owns a Nikon D7100, I’ve been waiting in Nikon's mirrorless APS-C because I’d really like to go lighter. Full frame really isn’t a need and it is out of my price range. I am neither underwhelmed nor excited by the Z 50 but somewhat encouraged — I’m taking a “wait and see” approach. On the other hand, as D7500 refurbished prices come down, I would consider that.

Nicholalala, hmmm, tell me more, that's very exciting.

On article Canon's 32MP chip marks the end of the 24MP APS-C era (485 comments in total)
In reply to:

EwanMC: Theoretically better than Sony 24MP sensor, but you need the latest lenses capable of resolving it.
I would suggest in the real world 24MP (or 26MP with the a7R IV in crop mode) is enough for 99% of us.

Theoretically how? In practice there are situations where this is better and others where it's worse.

Of course I am obnoxiously arrogant and with no patience for fools. ;-)
I this case I was simply triggered by a tire-kicker.

AdrianTWQ: Having a APS-C secondary system as a entry level gateway is a dumb thing for FF makers. They should have gone m43 instead.

AdrianTWQ,
LOL Hericusmaria is right, is hard not to laugh. Nikon has no history of M43, no sensors for it, no lenses for it, no lens adapters. You're making no sense.

Korinth7,
I stand by my post. You are 60, want lighter gear, have 7100 but would consider a 7500...I bet you'd 'consider' an A7R4 or a D850 or a Z6 a D6 or whatever, if they gave it you for free.
It's clear enough where you're going with this and where you're coming from.

Tire kicker post. Consider a different hobby.

XeroJay: This entire transition to mirrorless lenses is how Sony was able to sneak into a dominant position. When Nikon and Canon users learned that they would either be adapting their lenses or starting from scratch either way, Sony became a real option, and one that many folks went with.

Yep, they started this in 2012 so they have an 8-years advantage.

Spot on in many respects. Seems Canikon haven't caught up with the idea of making a product that elicits a cult-like following and an involuntary hand-to-the-wallet response in customers even after a product like the a7III has shown that the strategy can be very successful.
I am attracted to the looks and the form factor but the lens quality and a few other points kill the buzz.

Photato: Corporations like these are the biggest polluters of the world by operating on a business model of planned obsolescence. I don’t think they even have a recycling program like Apple and others do.
What they do have is a marketing campaign which paints Canon as environmental conscious..

Gesture,
I have been using apple products since 1996, I currently own at least 7 I can think of. Several are years old. Thanks but my point stands.

J C Strange: Looks nice. Lack of IBIS seems like a mistake, not so much now but for the now forever VR equipped lenses.

you welcome

Definitely more camera than the Canon M. I like it.

sportyaccordy: The more I think about this the less it makes sense. There are so many better ways to spend $1000 on a new camera + lens kit.

Vegas would be a better way to spend 1000 bucks.

Why no headphone jack Nikon? Such dumb omission.

mpb002: Looks like Nikons last gasp in the APSC area. When was the last time a 20MP sensor was used in an APSC? Too bad it doesn’t measure up to Canon’s 32 MP M6II and likely soon M5II.

nah.

zakaria: Why on earth using a newly body design if you already have the excellent Z6 body. Why not given it the goodies of z6 and sell it as a premium aps/c.

Why not the other way around? I want FF sensor in this body.

The Silver Nemesis: Nikon, bravo, excellent work!

Canon? Where is my 7D III (the “form” does not matter)?

Give Canon a break, they busy making 100 mil cameras.
