Albert Valentino: Soon a new sport will emerge, similar to skeet shooting, drone shooting will become a new pastime for those that used to enjoy the peace and quiet of the outdoors 😃

@Eske: it has been a while since i met somebody remembering "Amused to death", or even Roger Waters as it is.

To shoot or not to shoot, that is the question!

Hmmm, wasn't that robot used by a camera review site :-D ?

Had some very good years with the E-600 and the 12-60. But I got cautious when m43 gained hold and sold them early enough to still get some good value back. And I have to agree that for me personally the mirrorless concept allows better the combination of small enough with good enough. Good times (gearwise) we live in ...

Sigh, now we need to -severely- punish that storm.

Hmm, time to save up for that NX700 I have been waiting for :-D

Ok with that (it is business after all), but still not my cup of tea. The DLs and/or further Nikon 1 developments would have sold me ...

Well, yes, of course that is cheaper than to fully develop the DL line (PS: naturally I have no clue if that is true, but apparently they analyzed the viability/rentability of the DLs literally to death).

oscarvdvelde: In the sequence 35-70mm, 28-70mm, 24-70mm with a decade difference between them, I am still waiting for 20-70mm zooms to come in this decade :)

Yes, where is my 18-50, or in m43 terms 9-25/2.8 :-D

Two or three not so to my taste, but the rest: Oh Yeah! Absolutely love that Rhizostoma jelly with the hitchhikers, amazing behaviour documentation. Wish I could achieve that level ... well back to my pedestrian snorkelling images.

On article Throwback Thursday: the Nikon D80 (243 comments in total)

Dimage A2 in 2004: very versatile, good build, IBIS, good EVF. Then I dropped it and the sensor was misaligned ever after (broken IBIS). Still managed to sell it for spare parts ...
Thought long and hard about bridge vs. DSLR, but the latter were just out of my range back then. In 2009 I finally got an E-400 ...

Well, now we will never know. And the NX12-24 I own is quite good, and the Fuji equivalent should be even better. Though I am not too critical, if you prefer primes than it might not have been for you anyway.

Nope, the RX100 is covering 24-70, is much less wider (though a bit longer). That is the reason why the DL line was quite enticing with the 18-50 and the 24-85. Though I would have preferred the 18-50 plus a 50-200.

UneVache: Is this really a surprise? I'm sorry for those who been interested in those cameras, but to me it was a fail since the beginning. The concept has no place in the market anywhere. One inch sony sensor with a zoom is already a saturated market area, whatever was the camera form-factor or features. Even Nikon 1" was a better idea.

Why would it be boring? To have a real wide-angle to normal lens would be a perfect travel companion. I truly wish for a m43 9-25 lens. The 7-14 is too wide/limited, and the 9-18 does not reach normal enough.

Not the DL18-50, that was really unique ...

What a sad piece of crap. Since one year I am stoked on the concept and ready to buy the two compact one and now that ... especially that DL18-50.
It seems quite a few of the things that got me interested the last few years tanked: Samsung NX, Nikon DL & 1, don't know where the LX100 is going ...
I now hope that m43 finally decides to do a 9-25 lens ...
