cernic: because these cameras are viewed here mostly by SLR owners who are updated by the technology, the IQ is pretty bad;but when viewed by newbies and people who only prints 6Rs and does not pixel peep,for them these are amazing cameras..

Amazing- that word gets tossed around way too much. There's nothing amazing about them, they are very average, look around the camera market and you'll see 10 just like each one of them.

Cybershot use to have a pair... a long time ago now. Grow a pair and include raw. Also reduce the megapixels and you'll see cameras sell like crazy.

More consumer crud that just taps all resources. I wish there were more brave manufacturers out there who weren't afraid to do what they think is right vs. what they think the average consumer wants.

Sigh.

PicOne: Can anyone get a press release published.. Eg. if RRS or Kirk announced a new camera tripod plate for this same camera, would it get this exposure? Or, XYZ company announces specially formulated LCD wipes for the V1 LCD screen...

Yeah, dingaling.

Jogger: yes. the more spread out and disconnected your information is, the more difficult is it for the FBI and CIA to track you. thats why i dont use things like Facebook or Disqus.. its just a way for you to be tracked online, why would anyone do that.

Good to see you Phil! I agree.

Yawn, what... oh ... more cameras with too many megapixels what?

"If it ain't broke, don't fix it."

A rule I live by, but it seems that Fuji's X10 is indeed broke and needs fixing.

And not just the orbs, either.

Sounds perfect to me, a bit heavy though. But good magnification and build and optical quality are assured from Voigtlander.

OM-D EM-5, right camera at the right time. Olympus haven't lost the fight yet and I have to say this camera is much more compelling to me than the Sony NEX-7.

Way to go Olympus, I hope you sell a ton (granted the camera is as good as it looks on paper and in pictures).

On article Pentax announces K-01 K-mount APS-C mirrorless camera (867 comments in total)
In reply to:

Iso1975: Why the heck do I want a mirrorless camera that is the same size as a dslr and falls short on performance/features when compared to it?
Oh, and another thing: remember the movie Predator, when Arnie says to the beast "you're one ugly mother#$!%"*&"? well, the same applies here. It is just plain ugly. This simply is a brick

Disagree on the performance- it's a proven APS-C leading sensor, the AF is quick, battery life excellent. I'd take it over 90% of other mirrorless cameras.

Graystar: Musta had an excess supply of shutter buttons...

What do you expect for $249.00? Buyers are spoiled nowadays... Maybe Pentax should price their stuff like Kodak and go under eh? Silly.

cgarrard: I bought a 28mm Vivitar SMS f/2.8 Close focus (MD mount) for my L1 in 4/3 mount. It's small, light, superbly built, excellent close focus on 4/3 mount (about 1:2.5), for $20.00 like new with caps. Unless you need auto focus I can't see why lenses like this appeal. I'll be using it on my E-P1 as well.

Looking at the max magnification on the 19mm almost makes me ill :). C'mon maaaan! Really?

Look at this poll, nobody wants it, just like I said. Dumb idea.

bobbarber: It looks to be 1-2 stops better at high ISO than my Panasonic G2.

However, my lenses are 1-2 stops faster, so it's a wash.

I'm not sure how this camera would compare to the G3 and the other newer cameras with better high ISO performance.

I'm not saying I wouldn't use the GX-1 if somebody bought it for me, it looks like a nice camera, but at this price I would prefer to wait and just to pick up one of the m43 lenses that I don't have yet.

Of course they shouldn't stop selling their 50mm Primes. But offer something different than the competition that compels buyers to go to it. Neither of these lenses do that. The point I'm making about used lenses is that buyers will likely go to that market if the native mounts don't offer what they are really looking for- especially at native mount prices.

Not only that but Sigma has to compete with the Native mount lens sales to boot. Just a couple of dumb lenses to bring to the market- and I might add, way too late.

Lea5: Wow I just checked the image output RAW and Jpg. Very, very impressive!

Till ISO 1600, is the key here. Then it gets whalloped by Sony's 16mp sensor in 3 other cameras that use it. And this is just STUDIO comparisons, real life noise shows handily at ISO 400, too much for my taste.

On article Nikon updates firmware for discontinued CoolPix P7000 (37 comments in total)

Huge respect for this move, who ever made that call at Nikon should get a raise. This is the king of thing Nikon needs to do to improve the image of Coolpix.

I'm totally impressed.

They will need to do a lot more in the future though.

Decision making at Sig lately has been very interesting.

Talk about a redundant lens. Buy the 18-50mm f/2.8-f/4.5 OS HSM save a lot of money and get IS to boot. Who cares about the extra on the wide end, take a couple steps backward :)

What I find odd is that often the lenses for the Nikon and Canon mount are less than the PK or A-mount from Sigma and Tamron.
