  • Commented on article Pentax KP Review

    I'm convinced that DPR should stop reviewing DSLRs. The reason is their mirrorless biases almost always bleeds unnecessarily into their DSLR reviews. The fact is Pentax has an aging, in many...

  • @nikos aikaterinis But that's the whole point about these reviews. Reviewers seem to be overvalue specs and undervalue IQ. For the LX100 to score 85% with a rave review Gold Award while it has...

  • Agree. For DSLR users looking for a low-cost backup, there is nothing that can touch the D5500 for a small, capable DSLR with top level IQ and decent handling. So the kind of "meh" review is...

  • @RPJG
    Dude, everybody knows the snarky way you were using the word "niche". You're not fooling anyone. Other than that, I have no idea why you are still rambling on about this subject, let it go.

  • Commented on article Leica SL Review

    @SRT201 Actually this bit about the SL not doing anything distinctively better than any other camera is contradicted on more than once. Pro: "Best EVF on the market", superb battery life,...

  • Commented on article Leica SL Review

    @Richard Butler That's fine, but if one didn't know of the DPR's new approach to reviews, one could easily get the impression that the Leica SL didn't get the usual thorough, detail oriented...

  • Commented on article Leica SL Review

    Review is much too short for a Leica camera, and the snarky "Conclusion" section, the bit about "if you have your heart set on a camera with a red dot on it" is kind of obnoxious.

  • I have thin skin for mentioning your favorite word in passing, but you made an entire ranting post complete with personal attacks? You are hilarious. I know exactly what "niche" means, and I also...

  • Better yet, you should have a Rolleiflex in your bag. 6x6 rules. Few things look more beautiful than a well shot MF image. For the poster who keeps writing the word "niche" like it's some kind...

  • They are going to sell (and rent) a ton of these Fujinon CineLens lenses. I just caught the video that Adorama produced, and I must say, it looks pretty fantastic (see link). That and the Brooklyn...

  • Commented on article Hands-on with the Canon EOS 77D

    Some people are determined to impose their camera preferences on the rest of us. They can shill for these tiny mirrorless cameras until they are blue in the face, I need a camera with affordable...

  • I blame smartphones and those horrible vertical videos, DPR's ignoring the ground breaking Nikon 1 line, I blame "cost benefit analysis", I blame foolish talk of import taxes in the US. ;-) Guess...

  • The Nikon 70-200mm f/4G ED VR is an excellent lens, one of my favorite Nikkors ever. But depending on what you shoot, an f/2.8 version might be a better choice.

  • Leather? Boo. Maybe we should bring back fur. How about ivory soft shutters? /s

  • OK, but I've seen X100 vs X1 shootouts proving the opposite. And the X1files don't look sharper, they look like they have higher default sharpening, a big difference. But clearly, the X100 lens is...

  • There are no issues with the X100 lens, it is part of the reason the X100 is so popular, so take your negativity somewhere where people will appreciate it more.

  • Clearly you've never used an X100. The lens is not "noticeably soft" at all. At max aperture at its closest focus distance it is softer, like most large aperture lenses. If you've never used a...

  • The 23 f2 lens is superb, it is the main reason X100 images look so gorgeous. Besides, it's a leaf shutter pancake lens, about the smallest f2 APS-C lens of its type. If they made the lens...

  • Fire up the barbie... ;-)

  • He's actually wrong about the lens and the sensor. The recent Fujiflm cameras (X-T2, X-Pro2, X-T20, X100F) have by far the best file output of any X cameras to date. More detail, way better...
