Mike99999: Wow, there is something wrong with the Mark I samples. I had to compare to the E-M5 to get a decent comparison.

My conclusion:
- E-M1 II has a slight increase in detail over the E-M5
- E-M1 II is one stop behind the D500 in terms of ISO noise
- E-M1 II is three stops behind the A7R II in terms of ISO noise

To make myself clearer: E-M1 II at ISO 800 has the same noise level as A7R II at ISO 6400.

I don't understand why you compare a 4/3 sensor to a full frame one...

Meh...
Sorry to say, but those pics didn't reflect the spectacular landscapes you can admire in Iceland... they are pretty boring and unexpressive...

EthanP99: So... 960fps 1080p doesnt impress anyone?

Maybe because it's not real 1080p, H.F.R. at 960ftps uses 1136x384px for 2secs. sequences, and 800x270px (!) for 4sec sequences... pretty far from full H.D. i guess.

In reply to:

MikeFairbanks: I have a 2015 MBP. It's great.

Did this new one really get rid of the magnetic plug-in power cord? That was a genius move that they bragged about on their careers page for years.

>It's because EU is requiring all devices to standardize on the charging port. So Apple is not allowed to have a proprietary charger anymore. Thanks, Europe.

No, it's only for smartphones, not laptop.

Angrymagpie: Why doesn't Sony give us more lenses?
Are lenses technically more difficult to produce?
This looks like a great camera. But I'd like a weather-sealed version of the 24/1.8 to pair with it (which would hopefully be shorter than the current Zeiss one).
Maybe a more affordable version of the standard zoom?

Yes, wide angle lenses are more difficult to product on such camera because of the very short flange distance between the mount and the sensor ( ~1.8cm) .

And it's even worst for FF lenses...

Haha, nop, thank you.

On article Flickr Marketplace image licensing program shuttered (87 comments in total)
In reply to:

JeremiahL: Given Yahoo's history with their other acquisitions, and some of their decisions with Flickr, it's really amazing that Flickr is still around.

I was happily paying for a "Pro" account that I rarely used until Yahoo stepped in and cancelled it a few years back.

Fortunately I moved everything over to SmugMug a long time ago. I keep the Flickr around because there's no reason to delete it.

I still have my pro account too.

On article Opinion: Park vandals need to be stopped (334 comments in total)

Not exactly the same, but in France in 1992, a prehistoric cave with bison painting was erased by a scouting association !
And they've done it for a good deed : they just wanted to clean the place...

In reply to:

StevenE: People question m4/3 format for good reason when we see lenses like this at US$1300.
This is equivalent to a FF 24 f/2.8, which can be had for Canon at US$550, less than half the price and it is smaller and lighter. Even more significantly, you can get a FF 24mm f/1.4 from Sigma for US$850, that's a US$450 savings, and there is, and likely never will be, a m4/3 equivalent to that!
So, although it has it's uses, micro 4/3 is a compromised format

"This is equivalent to a FF 24 f/2.8"
Equivalent for depht of lied, but not for light transmission...

And franquly, the purpose of a wide angle lens is not to produce bokeh...

Now, please Ricoh, could you put a 1 inch sensor and a EVF in a Q ?
Instant buy for me...

In reply to:

Gesture: The real challenge. Don't rush the production. Make sure quality is as good as possible. Pentax doesn't want an "issue." I think they understand that.

I suppose than Pentax is the company which had the most time to spend to prepare their full frame DSLR...

In reply to:

Geoff F: I'd suppose that there wouldn't be any point in using this pixel shift during flash photography as the flash duration would be much shorter than the shutter exposure (i'm thinking primarily of dragging the shutter shots which I use a lot of for directional light during wedding shoots).

Intereting, i'm curious to know how Ps performs with flashes too.

Lawrencew: The K-1 looks like just the camera I need.
However, the lens options aren't that great.
Hopefully it will get some better support

In reply to:

FastGlassLover: To the people always loudly expressing that they won't touch manual lenses; auto focus is no different than any other "auto" mode on any device. Something that can be very useful, but if relied on will handicap your mastery.

Avoid manual lenses all you want, no one cares that you're limiting yourself.

On a FF camera, at 15mm f8, hyperfocal distance is 0.95m (3.13 feets), so everything is on focus from 0.475cm (1.65 feets) to infinite.
There is no focus issue with this kind of UWA lens.

(at f2.4, 1.5m /5.2feets to infinite...)

Couscousdelight: About Pentax lenses, a vintage Pentax 85 f1.4 VS a Canon 85 f1.2 L II:
http://www.16-9.net/lens_tests/pentax85/pentax85mm_c.html

And to mention than the CAnon 85 f1.2 is considered to be one of the best Canon lens...

AS Ken rockwell said about image quality of the 85 f1.2 MK2
(...) Exquisitely sharp and contrasty, even wide open, even in the corners, and even on full-frame,(...)

I guess canon users are not very demanding.
