kimsch: This can only mean one thing: They are getting ready for a very high MP camera

Well, he did say a "very" high MP...

bernardf12: This is the benefit of IBIS. Cheaper and lighter lenses. Unless you look at super telephoto of course, then OIS should be included.

@nicolaiecostel IBIS will stabilize the viewfinder if the camera has an EVF (e.g Sony A7x II series with IBIS).

Hi Rishi,
Thanks thanks for the writeup. Can you explain this statement a bit more?
"general subject tracking using Lock-on AF is still as erratic and untrustworthy as before"

RedFox88: Google sold off their Motorola phone business a few months ago at a huge loss hanging onto patents.

RedFox88: Try doing some research before you post. The link works for me. From the article:

On the face of it, that’s more than $9.5 billion for a collection of patents that has not proven to be very effective, especially against Apple, Microsoft or even Nokia.

However, on the bright side, when Google acquired Motorola it also inherited a cash pile of $3.2 billion, as well as $2.4 billion in deferred tax assets, for a net acquisition cost of $6.9 billion.

Google then sold Motorola’s set-top box business to Arris Group ($2.3 billion) and its factories to Flextronics ($75 million), further reducing the total acquisition cost to $3.85 billion.

Net-net, after the Lenovo deal closes, Google spent less than a billion dollars for patents that it originally estimated was worth $5.5 billion, plus some valuable insights in running a large hardware company (mass layoffs, razor thin margins, ultra competitive market…)

xue24: "getting a pro to shot the samples!!" are all over the real world samples gallery here in dpreview. personally, i think dpreview is doing a good job in fact, by mistake or not. cause over 90% of us out there will shot exactly like this. a pro will make all sample galleries here look amazing even if it is by a $100 p&s, but is it true for the rest of us? the camera don't make a better photographer.

is dpreview real world samples gallery any good...
personally, yes!! cause it is real for many, including myself :P

any camera could be good if it is in the right hand

What kind of twisted logic is that? "Most people will shoot crappy images with this camera, so let's show them some crappy samples". Don't you want to see what's the best this camera is capable of?

dpreview really needs to hire some real photographers. Is this really the best you can do?
