In reply to:

brycesteiner: The pictures of the wedding shot and the motorcycle on the page 1 have a lot of noise for ISO 400 and ISO 200. Even the shot below in evening light at 12800 ISO is very noisy. My old Oly E-M5 has less noise. I would expect much better from this. Perhaps a firmware update will fix some of this.
If the reason is because it's optimized for much higher ISO's that's fine, but most shooting, at least for me, is not going to be higher than 3200. Therefore, I can't imagine it would appeal to too many photographers.

Thanks for the great reply by DPR staff.

I cant understand why a camera of this calibre is noisy at ISO 200 and 400. Are there any comments from the Editorial staff on this subject?

Your definition of grumpy leads me to believe you are a very sensitive individual that needs to wake up in today's world.

Searching: Comparing the 1dXII sensor to the PenF sensor makes me realize just how good m43 is and Olympus in particular.

Of course the sensor would not ever be as good, you are all missing the point, I'm just saying that Olympus makes a good sensor. If you want to spend 7K more to get a couple of stops better ISO and carry around a brick, go ahead.

Searching: Mr. Sanyal's opinions are pretty worthless as he has demonstrated in the past. I don't know how he hangs on to his position at DPR. On top of that, he simply is rude with some of the posters and he shows a lack of class and respect.

Thanks for your brilliant insight.

Don't know why DPR would want to plug a horrible looking piece of junk like this. I've seen better straps handed in for the garbage on old cameras.

On article Retro through-and-through: Fujifilm X-Pro2 Review (2481 comments in total)

Looking at the samples and the features, I don't see much of anything that is really something to peak my interest. Its sort of ho hum, and yes, priced at the high end for me. No thanks.

The 35 f2 on the Fujitsu is too limiting a focal length for a travel camera.

On article What's missing? Ming Thein on the state of mirrorless (744 comments in total)

Both you and Thein are entitled to your viewpoints. There are many considerations and complexities to the points mentioned and they are all know by the various photographic engineers. Some of them don't appeal to the masses. When offering to many options, complaints come in about complicated menu systems, i.e. Olympus. Nice blog though.
