On article Canon PowerShot G9 X Mark II Review (214 comments in total)
In reply to:

kolyy: Wow, what a poor review. It seems like dpreview completely failed to understand the purpose of this camera and its position on the market.

"The memory card and battery compartment are on the bottom of the camera, so you'll have to remove it from your tripod when it's time to change the battery."
"If you're on a safari or whale watching trip, the G9 X II is not so hot."
"If you're looking for a camera capture your child's soccer game, the G9 X II is not it."

Are you kidding us? I am unable to find such stupidities in other of your compact camera reviews. I really think you should scrap the whole "use case" idea, because you have failed to make any reasonable use of it in any of your reviews, and this one borders with embarrassment.

"The lens is soft" is repeated over and over in the review, but you fail to mention that the RX100, the only real competitor, has a lens as soft as this.

On the other hand, you somehow fail to notice how terribly soft the 1080/30p video is.

"The lens is soft" is repeated over and over in the review, but you fail to mention that the RX100, the only real competitor, has a lens as soft as this.

Nop, not even close.

Baron LaCat: "•No PlayMemories app support"

This should listed in the Pros and not the Cons !!

(...)And some apps like the timelapse(...)

You're happy to pay for a feature than is free of most cameras on the market ?

Seriously DPR, the difference of treatment you make for Sony is pretty disturbing from a reader point of view. Maybe you should ask yourself some questions about the bias you show when it concerns that brand,

I mean, P.S. is older and better implanted on both Oly & Pentax cameras, but you praise Sony for it, i don"t get it.

Please, feel free to quit Europe, we will not regret you.

It's like Pentax 's Pixel shift than DXO have never tested, but they test the "super RAW" from their DXO one camera...

For cheaper than a 6DII you can have a Pentax K-1, and it gives you :

36Mpxl
14Ev od dynamic
IBIS + pixel shift
35 cross Af points
A rugged body adapted for most situations.
And many more...

In reply to:

Triplet Perar: On DPR was published a rumour that Ricoh is thinking into shutting down camera business "because of the losses". DPR published Ricoh's reply too, but went no extra mile, no extra 20 articles to dig more, see what is going on, because, imagine!, DPR may fear they may loose some valuable audience? Does DPR care about users of Ricoh's and Pentax cameras that come to DPR?

But there is TONS of coverage about one camera from one manufacturer. How disproportionate is that — care about one single product vs the future of an entire manufacturer and majority of their products?

That is one example I used to state DPR lost balance and reporter's cool. So instead of DPR, users of Ricoh Imaging's equipment must dig more, investigate what is the truth. In Ricoh's latest annual report, camera business division marked increase of sales (!) in fact. And, Ricoh is to repurpose some compact cams plants, and that is shown as cost, of course. How that squares with words in rumours? Who cares for truth?

In reply to:

Peiasdf: Anyone remember the marketing spin Samsung gave when rumor begin to go around Samsung is leaving photography? Yeah, Ricoh is doing the same spin to clear stock.

Japanese photography insiders know for a while Pentax is going under. Tamron and Sigma haven't made any lens for Pentax even thought that sounds like free money.

(...) Yeah, Ricoh is doing the same spin to clear stock.(...)

I'm tired of people proclaming this kind od sentence: it's coming from their imagination, but it's said like a intanglble truth.

Get a life.

On article Fujifilm GFX 50S Review: Modern MF (918 comments in total)
In reply to:

A Curious Passer By: Ricoh Pentax 645Z has enjoyed added publicity, all thanks for FujiFilm GFX. Not bad for a 3-year old camera which competes very well against the latest offerings. Battery life is a low point for the GFX, with a CIPA rating just over half what the 645Z can manage.

Overall, the GFX is still a great camera worthy of a gold medal.

Many says ?

I've never heard about it.

A big mistake!

Look at these photos ...

I have hundreds of sharp pics made with that setup, but it doens't mean than the AF was fast (it wasn't...), but than i know how yo place and use my camera for such event with a sluggish AF.
Pre-focusing is the most important part of the trick.

In reply to:

maksa: Well, we have how the excellent K-3 II and almost no lenses to use with it. Sigma abandoned K-mount, while Pentax introduces large and expensive full-frame lenses. And yes, updates its 55-300mm each few years. Disappointing.

Petroglyph, you've forget the magic triplet : FA 31, 43 & 77.

In reply to:

Karroly: Why is the D FA* 50mm F1.4 much bigger than the SMC FA 50mm F1.4 ?
Built-in AF motor ?
Additional glass elements/groups to improve IQ ?
OIS ?

Optics for digital cameras requires more lenses to avoid and treat chromatic abberations.

MrALLCAPS: I know this is gonna get the fanboys upset, but in my opinion...

Panasonic should buy Nikon.

Panasonic's direct rival is Sony. Sony brought Minolta, and look where they're at now.
Panasonic sided with Leica, but has received unwarranted hate from photogs, due to lack of photo history, WHICH is the dumbest thing I've ever heard of.

If Panasonic were to absorb Nikon, not only would they save it, but improve on them, with one of the best video tech. Canon would be forced to improve their tech.

You know I'm right...

" They own mirrorless right now. ".

Nop, just check bcn ranking for 2016, for mlc, sony is behind Oly & Canon :
