On article iPhone 8 front camera rumored to capture 3D images (76 comments in total)
In reply to:

arhmatic: Apple --- Just put a larger sensor, a decent lens (yes, this thin device craziness has to stop!) a decent battery, and I'll buy it.

All the stuff you are coming up with, like fake bokeh, infrared and now 3D - makes no sense whatsoever. In fact, this is the number one reason I am not interested. It makes no sense to pay hundreds more for some gimmicks that I'd never use. Keep it simple and classy.

Of course then know what they are doing. Because they are doing it, not me.

But do they know what users really want? Past iphone releases proved the opposite.

marc petzold: I don't care about absolute sharpness at all, i do care more about "look", haptics & usability, also IQ about a lens. That's why i do love my old MF lenses, too. This is my lens i'd get this year. Suits the X-E1 perfectly as walk-around Lens, very versatile focal length. On other reviews, this XF 23 F2 WR had shown that it is capable of delivering "3D Pop" just like some old Zeiss Glass. A bit corner Softness at F2 wide open is expected, and ordinary. I do like this Lens very much.

Look and Haptics!
I never understood why sharpness is so important. Yes, it matters, but not a deal breaker. Haptics, on the other hand, do matter to me. I realize I am in minority, but we all have our own reasons. I still can't get over the conical shape. Not getting this... 18mm is my walk around, with the old 35mm second.

On article Canon debuts EOS M6 mirrorless with optional EVF (648 comments in total)

If this the top of the line canon Mirrorless? Not critiquing the camera itself, I just want to learn that the current flagship is, so I can compare it with my Pro-2.

arhmatic: I assume the cameras on the table are all OM-D E-M1 Mark II...

While there, I suggest adding one item to the meeting agenda - limit camera naming to 2-3 characters. Typ, all.

@tommy --- we know, all letter mean something. But are they relevant? Or it's just brain clutter...

kewlguy: For $3,200 I'm sure there are better choices - ultimate or not.

Does not matter. enjoy your photography, whether your camera is worth 1 or 5k.

There is a certain advantage in limiting yourself to work with just one lens --- you are forced to go outside the comfort range to get the shot. In other words, you thinking... you are working for it... Better results overall.

gorllu: Ugly.

I agree. Not just this, but DSLR in general. Fat and bubbly.

But as always, "this is a tool, not a fashion statement" so let's slowly transition towards the brands of our choice. Definitely, not Canikon.

Daniel, you are right. But I think some jokes never expire.

How many of us would like to see the digital version of this camera, in the same size body? --- No, not retro style, just the physical size is what I am after.

you can't properly demo a Leica without inevitably including a shot of a homeless man...

LackingCommonSensor: This is almost the perfect camera for me. I am thinking of selling off my DSLR and getting one. I know I could save $$ waiting for them to go on sale, but I could be dead by that time.

@vscd - it's more about all those shots that you missed because your dslr is too large and impractical to carry. Because the best camera is the camera in your pocket, not in your closet at home.

Albert Valentino: Follow the example of the DPR readers. if we like the equipment then we go out and buy one with our own money 🤑

I think Nikon should price the lens based on the estimated life, once sold.

I will likely get robbed once I land at my vacation destination, so $200 would be a fair price. Deal?

In reply to:

OhWeh: The same price as the Leica M10, but so much more camera for the money. More IQ, AF, sealed, ....

@legaceez - To clarify, I mean no sense of aesthetics when it comes to the GFX.

For the X- line, that definitely stands out. So yes, it's similar but also different than Leica, so it stands out on it's own.

In reply to:

Elite83: Buying a Leica is like a Manhattan business man buying a Ferrari to commute to work. It looks pretty, and a lot of people are going to think you're a special snowflake, but the top speed you'll ever reach in that thing downtown is crossing an intersection...maybe.

you mistakenly assume that the Ferrari is for speed only. There is way more to a car than that. There is way more to a camera than speed, FPS or MP.

In reply to:

arhmatic: Performance aside, this is a beautiful camera. I hope you, the Fujifilm X- designers, can give a hand to the GFX department - they do need it...

Stevo - the X series and GFX have very little in common, when it comes to industrial design and styling. We might like or not, this is personal. Definitely not intending to hurt anyone. In my mind, the X and GFX are worlds apart...
