On article Upwardly mobile: Sony a6300 Review (2154 comments in total)
In reply to:

pkcpga: Not sure how the Nikon d7200 is the benchmark for comparison for a year now and the Sony a6300 doesn't match or beat the Nikon and the Nikon receives a silver and the Sony a gold. I guess cameras have gotten worse with time so they get higher awards or maybe the Sony has such a great user interface it deserves the over look.

Welcome to the new DPR, mirrorless central where skinny jean pocketability is the new benchmark. :) The D7000 was the IQ benchmark for years, and it was also only worthy of a Silver. Don't bother trying to figure out the logic in the awards.

ruicarv79: If only Sony could make cameras as good looking as Fuji... :)

And if only they had E-mount lenses even a fraction as good Fuji. Every time I consider buying a Sony, their lens lineup stops be dead in my tracks.

On article Nikon D5 real-world low light, high ISO samples (281 comments in total)
In reply to:

raztec: Historically, in terms of image quality, the D5 will mark the beginning of the end of the DSLR. I don't see a HUGE advantage to the D3s, D4s, DF etc.

Now let's see what the AF performance is like as that could jolt this dying breed back to life.

Mirrorless fanbois have been saying the same nonsense for years yet DSLRs are still outselling and outperforming the majority of mirrorless cameras. It's funny that some actually think bolting a cheesy EVF on a body to grab the live view feed is some kind of technology breakthrough that obsoletes all those wonderful cameras with big, bright pentaprism VFs, but that's another story. But clearly the new D5 is visibly outperforming the D3 and D4. To expect something crazy like a 1 or 2 stop high ISO improvement ("HUGE") in one upgrade cycle, when such an improvement has never happened before in the history of digital photography, is unrealistic.

In reply to:

ozturert: Looks very good. But then D4 was very good too, and even D3s...
And can we see real low light photos, where you don't use 1/1000 shutter speed?

Complaining about nothing, the photos use a wide variety of shutter speeds. Try looking past the first few.

eivissa1: Coincidence? Since today I cannot sign anymore into my Flickr account....!

I haven't been able to sign in for weeks and it's super annoying. The images on my photostream are important to me, but they've locked me out. I miss the good old days of Flickr without the bad redesign and fort knocks security.

A nice video camera in good light. For stills, $1500 for a 1 inch sensor camera is too high for me. The beautiful new Pentax K1 full frame or D610 kit is just a bit more or a Fujifilm XT1 kit for less. For still photography and professional quality results, it's not even a choice. But OK, maybe the RX10 II price will drop but knowing Sony, probably not. I'm still interested in one of the Nikon DL cameras, second cameras shouldn't cost a small fortune.

SmgUk: Nikon DL 24-500 looks like a better prospect

And $500 less expensive.

Maybe in a year without the Pentax K-1 and Nikon D500, but probably not.

In reply to:

papa natas: D5....
With all these drawers & compartments...Humongous toy...!!!
Didn't they think about one sandwich compartment?
I hope next year they will add booster cables, mini fridge plugging, and a mini micro wave just under the battery block.

Fire your joke writer, the D5 is built for actual work and to balance with fast pro galss. It's not a fashion accessory like most mirrorless cameras, it doesn't tip down to the south pole any time you mount a fast lens on it.

marike6: Do you think DPR can find a more dusty demo camera to photograph? :) On- camera flash and product photography don't mix.

Not sure how image 1 and 4 made the cut, but OK.

vermaden: Nikon is stupid.

They have NIKON 1 system, why not add 18-50/1.8-2.8 and 24-85/1.8-2.8 lenses for that system?

Why not introduce 4K capable body for that system?

With announcement of this DL trio NIKON 1 system is officially dead.

david vella,
Obviously you care. Not sure why because for all your chest puffing camera snobbery I can't find a single "real" image from you online.

Maybe it is not Nikon who is stupid as the only camera with more buzz online is the K-1. So clearly your view is an outlier. Re: why running a DSLR and ILC side-by-side makes ZERO sense because lenses costs a small fortune. A fixed lens camera with a nice bright zoom lens can cover most bases. Re: 4K, the Nikon 1 J5 shoots 4K at 15 fps, obviously in the future we'll see more 4K at 30 fps in a J5, V4 or whatever.

david vella: Pointless toys. Nikon should leave this arena to the electronics companies .

M4/3s have this base covered. Nikon wasting R and D resources yet again.

When is their real mirrorless system going to appear, a worthy competitor to the XPro 2 plus lenses?

Nikon have become schizophrenic with their confused mission/ product lines .

Fuketa must be spinning in his grave !

Give it up. Nobody is making money with mirrorless cameras, Sony 's camera division lost 23% of its business in 2015. Nikon and Canon sell more cameras than anyone else in the world. There is nothing that m43 or the RX100 can do that these new DL cameras can't. If you don't like it, don't buy it. Nobody cares.

In reply to:

Samuel Dilworth: The DL18-50 is astonishing, but they’re all interesting. Success will come down to whether the lenses are as good as their paper specs.

Looks like Nikon is going to go down kicking! I didn’t think they had this kind of innovation in them. Good to see.

Canon and Nikon continue to sell more cameras than any other vendor. With pro press, sports and nature shooters, they have the market locked down tight. Smartphones aren't going to change this fact.

Re: innovation: the Nikon 1 had phase detection AF on sensor years before any other mirrorless vendor.

On article Worth the wait? A look inside the Pentax K-1 (651 comments in total)

This K-1 beauty got a tepid "Worth the Wait?" headline, and the new Sony A6300 crop sensor got an exuberant "Wow" headline? Now that's funny. All that aside, the Pentax 67 style prism housing looks awesome, looks like a dream camera, this K-1 is easily one of the most interesting releases on a long time. Can we please have a reviewer who won't write that "bulky" nonsense as a con? Many of us want cameras that handle well, and don't care if they fit in our skinny jeans. :-)

biza43: Interesting, but ultimately, nothing new. Travel photogs have been taking "wide angle portraits" (or more correctly, portraits of people surrounded by their environment) for decades. Just look at NatGeo stuff.

@biza43 FWIW, I live in the New York, we have some of the best museums and galleries in the world, and you suggest I broaden my horizons by looking at pics in a magazine that had it's heyday 30 years ago. lol. I get it. You are one of those photography dudes who think being insightful is name dropping National Geographic for the zillionth time.

Why is there always a BUT on DPR comments? The photography in this feature was first rate, and it was refreshing change from the usual "you should really buy this" gear talk. If the photography had been strange, avant-garde images - new for the sake of being new - there would have been lots more BUT comments and way less clients for Mr. Sanyal.

Mike FL: If users are looking for a small walk around camera with:
- faster + decent lens
- zoom
- EVF
- better AF system
- etc

SONY RX100.M3/M4 and Pana LX100 are sharper than any FUJI P&S namely this X70, X100S, or X100T:

http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/image-comparison?attr18=daylight&attr13_0=fujifilm_x70&attr13_1=sony_dscrx100m3&attr13_2=fujifilm_x100t&attr13_3=panasonic_dmclx100&attr15_0=raw&attr15_1=raw&attr15_2=raw&attr15_3=raw&attr16_0=200&attr16_1=200&attr16_2=200&attr16_3=200&attr171_1=off&normalization=compare&widget=1&x=-0.3206852391845323&y=-0.7884421496939084

The RX100.M3/4 and LX100 Low-light IQ should be as good as SONY's aged 16MP sensor inside of all FUJI as RX100.M3/4 and LX100 has faster lens.

Yikes. I hope Sony and Panasonic are paying because trying to convince others what camera to use is totally lame. Buy whatever camera you want and let others decide what camera suits them.

Oh wow, another Sony NEX E-mount body for almost double the price of the A6000, the same atrociously bad kit lens and perhaps the least inspiring lens lineup ever produced.
