That said, Yashica was my first SLR.

Miranda, lovely camera !

On article CP+ 2017: Olympus interview: 'We chose to be bold' (352 comments in total)

What is a female oriented camera !? Olympus advertisements are going to create Olympus Girl !
I used to have an E-PL3 which is, in my opinion, very capable camera while coupled with a bright lens of course. I was occasionally hearing that it was women's choice... When I decided to change it, an employee of a photo store said me : it's for bobo chicks, I can't resell it !!
So lack of an electronic shutter, unchanged image quality since E-PL5, etc, would be in relation with femininity ! :)

LakeSuperior1: I love how so many people commenting here have clearly never used a Fuji camera. "You can get the same 16mp sensor with a bargain bin D7000". Seriously, that couldn't be farther from the truth. The Fuji X-Trans sensor blows the D7000 out of the water for detail & noise. Also, I have shot a ton of nature. First with an X-Pro 1 and now with the X-T1. The detail is better than anything I ever got with Nikon or Canon. Detail in general for any kind of shooting is better. I came from Canon full frame and L glass to Fuji so I do have an idea what I am talking about. As for the price of the Fuji lenses, when you compare them to Nikon ED or Canon L glass they are actually cheaper. Pricey yes, but still cheaper.

Maybe you got a superior version of T-1 ! I keep using my Fujifilm but seriously, neither the image quality, nor other technical controls (Focus, etc.) are better than other brands.

wayne131: There seem's no end to the Fuji bashing.
People constantly complaining about the price of the lenses. You must be having a laugh. The quality and finish of there lenses is stunning.
Fuji produce fantastic cameras and have simply the best firmware updates of any camera manufacturer.
If you want to buy a product when it is first released, expect to pay a premium price.
I recently purchased a "used/mint" X-E2 body and the superb 18-55mm kit lens for £500.00. The original ticket price was still on the box - £1199.00.
In addition I also purchased a used X-M1 for £95.00 !!
The only camera I purchased new was the X-T10. It's handling and button layout suits me more than any other camera I have owned. And it represents incredible value.
I have no brand "loyalty" and shoot with several other brands of camera.
The biggest single advantage of Fuji? The files it produces require the least amount of post - processing.
Have a nice day.

About image quality....I am actually somehow disappointed.

Another boring 18-xxx lens ! F 6.3 !
Nikon has been encouraging their DX costumers to buy faster third party lens.
Nikon ignores requests of many costumers for introducing some more exciting lenses.

On article Windows XP is dead. Long live Windows XP 'Bliss' (119 comments in total)
In reply to:

Lenscraft: Every time I read comments on DPReview, I'm struck by how negative and angry that they seem. This doesn't only apply to the Canon vs. Nikon vs. Sony etc comments. As a response to this rather lovely scenic, I'm reading things like this:

"Always seemed blurry to me"

"Horrible image. To avoid as background at all costs."

"Proof, if it were needed, that even a good photographer can produce an utterly uninspiring image that looks fake."

Why are folks so negative? It's a pretty picture. Not my personal style, but that doesn't mean that I tear it down. Remember, there is a human being, a photographer like you, behind that image.

Well said! Absolutely true!

On article Sony announces SLT-A58 20MP mid-level DSLR-style camera (128 comments in total)

"...you’ll enjoy image quality that EFFORTLESSLY exceeds your point-and-shoot compact camera, plus features you’d expect from a far higher-priced DSLR."

"Featured on previous models, Auto Portrait Framing has now evolved into even more versatile Auto Object Framing – helping you get better-looking, more professional results without EFFORT."

If I wanted to be a photograph, instead of changing EFFORTLESSLY my look, I' would learn photography !!
That's why some people have got no special pleasure when they use a DSLR! Finally, many recent DSLRs are just boring...

On article Just Posted: Canon EOS 5D Mark III review (672 comments in total)

It's strange that some commentators have been writing aggressive statements about Canon 5D III !! I (an amateur) have been using Nikon(SLR& DSLR) and a lovely camera like Miranda(that of my parents) and occasionally I shoot with other marks including Pentax and Canon. Some professional guys actually prefer D4 and 5D III to D800. Anyway, they are different cameras and for different purposes.

In reply to:

Vadimka: I noticed how some people are predicting Ricoh to fail because its hard to beat Canon and Nikon in DSLR market. I will even go as far as saying its impossible, becaue DSLRs will no be a driving force of photo market in few years. Mirrorless systems and others like it are the future and its begining to become very apparent. (and Canon and Nikon have none at this point)

If you look at the most educated photo market in the world, which I'm afraid is Japan and review its number for Entry Level DSLRs sold last year (why entry level because its where the money is) you will see the following picture:

Two leading Canon models Kiss X4 and X5 (Rebels in USA) got 16.4% of market share;
Two leading Ninok models D3100 and D5100 got about 18% of market share;
Olympus E-PL1/2 and Panasonic GF2 got 17.2% (not too bad) and if you add another 5.5% that Sony NEX5 got, you will end up at 22+%.
What also shocking is that Canon and Nikon line is mature and Mirrorless is fairly unknown (2 years running)

Honestly, Image quality of the mentioned models isn't extraordinary comparing to that of Pentax !

It's not at all an amazing news!
We will see...
Asahiflex, K1000 and finally K5, I hope a good change will happen ! lol

Donglei: Great! K mounts united. They should have done this 20 years earlier.

Pentax K mount or K monut, was created by Pentax in 1975.
