  • The Fuji 16-50 is a million times better than the Sony 16-50, there is no comparison. The Sony is one of the worst kit lenses ever made. And the Fuji lens line up is dramatically better than...

  • @Richard Butler But Fujifilm has never been interested in making video cameras, why hold a Fuji camera to the standard set by Sony or Panasonic? Fujifilm doesn't make all-arounder, photo/video...

  • My opinion is that no award for the Fujifilm X-E2S after the X-E1 received a Gold award makes almost no sense. The fact that the X-E2S is using a proven 16 mp sensor is hardly a reason for no...

  • @boinkphoto The Fujifilm 35 1.4 is not exactly sharp wide open, it needs f2 to get above the standard decency level of most lens test websites. The Sigma 35 1.4 is a different story, it's sharp...

  • The EISA awards are thinly veiled marketing. Few people take them seriously, they are just a way to get EISA stickers on those Tamron lens boxes.

  • Prosumer DSLR of the Year Nikon D500 for the reading challenged.

  • @Androole
    And what was the award for the Panasonic GM5? Silver. Case closed. And anyone who tells you that the GM5 is a better camera than the Fuji XE series is delusional. What I think DPR...

  • More proof that DPR needs to lose the review awards. If the X-E1 wins a Gold Award, how does the X-E2S get nothing? Not even the spirit of the Olympics could compel the reviewer to give this...

  • @eazizisaid I'm guessing you don't shoot weddings or events. Fast glass is essential, shallow DOF is only part of the equation.

  • Commented on article Special K? Pentax K-1 Review

    @Simon Johnson Because there is a huge difference between concluding that "AF tracking not up to level of peers" and the first bullet point in the Cons like be "Poor AF". The statement "poor AF"...

  • Commented on article Special K? Pentax K-1 Review

    @rrccad
    The Cons bullet list already has a few totally unnecessary, borderline passive aggressive Cons like "Poor AF" and "Limited selection of modern AF lenses". A reviewer cannot make the case...

  • Commented on article Special K? Pentax K-1 Review

    The K1 doesn't need Silkypix, it shoots DNG which Adobe (and most others) process out of the box. No waiting necessary.

  • Commented on article Special K? Pentax K-1 Review

    So DPR did a predictive AF test of a 36 mp DSLR with the lens at max aperture and concluded that the K-1 has "poor AF"? That's odd, the D800, D600 and Canon 6D didn't get any such "AF test". Oh...

  • Sony E-mount lenses are either wildly over-priced mediocre or expensive garbage, their bodies are horrendous to shoot with. Fujifilm lenses are in another category, their bodies are a joy to...

  • Commented on article Special K? Pentax K-1 Review

    @Barney Britton But you didn't have any predictive AF tracking test in your Canon 6D or Nikon D600. And the K-1 review clearly states in the conclusion that the K-1 AF system "is an improvement...

  • Commented on article Special K? Pentax K-1 Review

    Readers have every right to make negative comments if they feel there is a lack of consistency across reviews. Asking questions or raising concerns doesn't automatically mean fanboys have their...

  • Commented on article Special K? Pentax K-1 Review

    You say the K1 results are in line with previous Pentax models, DPR says the K1 AF is an improvement on previous Pentax models, yet it's only the K1 whose review summary Con said "Poor AF", neither...

  • Commented on article Special K? Pentax K-1 Review

    DPR writes: "While the AF system of the K-1 can't keep up with some of its peers, it is an improvement over previous Pentax DSLRs."

    Then how come the K3's review didn't have a single conclusion...

  • Commented on article Special K? Pentax K-1 Review

    @ET2 A7RII and D810 are more expensive camera, the lenses for the A7RII use sophisticated stepping motors, Nikon's predictive AF technology is class leading. But he makes a valid point about the...

  • Commented on article Special K? Pentax K-1 Review

    I agree completely with Zvonimir. When I had my K-30, I had no major problems tracking birds in flight or my daughter running around. And with motor-less DA primes in AF Single Shot, focussing is...
